This place is absolutely amazing so many things to do and great to spend time with family. This is the best place I have ever been too. The rooms were amazing, facilities were excellent and the beach very close. The entertainment at night was always amazing especially on the special events nights like the foam party, water party and others. Stayed here for 2 weeks and never had any problems. The closest town Belek is either and 10 minute drive or a 45 minute walk so many things to do shops,restaurants,bars and even the mosque you can go into. Would definitely recommend this and would love to stay again.
Great variety of FREE activities: water ski, wakeboarding three tries per day, canoe, windsurfing; tennis lessons, free four courts, lights and equipment, archery lessons for beginners and separate time for advanced people; aquapark with actually only 2 slides whichh could be interesting for adults; darts; aquaerobics and more more. I'm not a fan of evening shows but here it was good enough. Also from 00-02 am it's disco time but if you like to be awake and after it there is a WunderBar which works the whole day.
The main pool isn't so big (last year I've stayed in Tui Magic Life Topical and I liked it much more), however there are several separate pools in some blocks. Also there are family relaxing pool and adults only pool (area around it is all in pines, no umbrellas, in the end of September it was a bit cold pool there, thee rest pools were fine, I guess it's because of natural shadow). Everywhere are a lot of sunbeds even if the hotel is full I guess there are enough beds for everyone. Beach is big enough and clean.
There are enough bars and restaurant (we never use Ala Carte), Coffee Shop but there are no big evening area where everyone can play games. talk and have drinks. In Coffee Shop there are around small 15 tables only, Su Bar is too dark for it. It was a minus for us.
Not great service in the main restaurant. Not enough clean tables if you will come in the middle of dinner. They couldn't clean and you need to spend 5-10 minutes to find a waiter who can do it (if you are lucky). The food is typical as in any similar Turkish hotel. Less seafood than in Tui Tropical. People who are on diet, want gluten free and so on you will have a quest how to find proper food.
Rooms are good. But not amazing. I understand that we shouldn't stay in hotel room during vacation but it felt small. We had Junior Suite in Bougainvillea block (some rooms look at the reception and buses but we never felt inconvenience). There is hairdryer, shower gel, slippers in the room. There are not enough channels on English. None on Polish, loads on German, Russian and Turkish.
Most people are Germans, a lot of Polish, enough Russians but not too much, several from UK and other countries.
For children there are separate playground, children pool in family relaxing area, also there is small zoo garden available.
There is City Belek center around 25 minutes walk (if you like fake cloth you can go there, but if you want smith more you won't find it there, only 1 bar and 1 cafe, LC Waikiki, that's it. You can walk there if you like to do this. Also there are The Land of Legends 15 minutes by taxi.
I hope my review were helpful. I bet I've forgotten some info.
