very good all-inclusive-place:
a lot of great food, many things to do, close to market that sells high-end-copies cheap.
great beach and good place for family/friends, fun and relaxation.
also arrange a lot of fun/culture-trips.

Room Tip: top-floor otherwise a little bit noisy if you end up with kids or party-people as neighbors

I loved loved loved stay at this hotel: nice rooms with all necessary things for shower: shampoo, conditioner, cotton pads, body wash, body cream also mini bar filled every day. The food was very good and many choice. In September the only thing to regret was that the swimming pool was cold and many people got sick ( we as well). Nevertheless, the seaside is 2-3 minutes walk from the pool. For the lazy ones there is even a shuttle to the beach but really not necessary. Staff a bit reserved but it was fine with us :) 80% of clients Germans so you bet the calm and clean rules everywhere.

Having switched Hotels from a massively bad 'saw this on the internet and thought it would be fine' choice to this was truly a ridiculous to the sublime.
The Side Star Resort has won many awards, and from the moment you arrive, you can see why. Incredibly polite and efficient staff, willing to always do that extra bit to help, or suggest something. I had a single occupancy double room which would have huge even if travelling with my partner. Superbly appointed bathroom, all the toiletries provided (usually an area that 5* places let themselves down on - this one is definitely the exception - I'm looking at you 'W' chain) Lovely comfortable beds, clean linen. The indoor common areas had comfortable seating with very attentive at-table service. (On my second day one of the bar staff brought me a drink completely unbidden, remembering my order from the previous day, a nice touch). The outside areas, whilst busy always afforded a seat, lounger or a table, depending on your requirement. Great pool with separate area from the children. The private beach area has proper shading for those wishing to be by the sea, but not burn to a crisp.
And then there's the food. A truly massive selection, including cook-to-order for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. International as well as Turkish, specials at lunch and dinner. vast selections of salads and side options, patisserie and gelato areas for those with a sweet tooth. Even though this is 'buffet-style' dining, the table service for soft drinks and alcohol is very attentive, and scarily efficient.
The front desk staff were helpful above and beyond the call of duty, helping me out with a problematic airport transfer with friendliness, speed and efficiency.
Seldom can it be said that I can't recommend a place highly enough.
This is one of those occasions. 5 Star across the board.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in one of the four annexes, they each have a lovely courtyard one can enjoy in the...

...OK here goes. With apprehension the trip was booked due to the troubles in Turkey...boy were they pardon the pun, blown out of the water. Great resort. First the negatives - should have a proper money exchange desk or an atm - don't worry if that bugs you a 10 minute walk into the market provides one. Seafood selection - rubbish. Come on guys get the prawns and shrimp on the barbie. That's it.
Positives - great family room we had, divide into two - one for the kids one for us. Very clean and tastefully decorated throughout the whole hotel. Great selection of food.. If you like it hot not so but a spice rack available. Pool awesome with some slides for little kids as well as big ones.. ahem. Mehmet in the dining area - Tayfun at the bar - respect guys - travelling for 20 years and you guys rank with the best... hats off. Taxi rank outside - fixed prices so you know you not being ripped off and a bus service every fifteen minutes. Bit out in the sticks - perfect for a pure chill. Whatever you do visit the temple of appolo and Side old city..hip - happening and chilled.. Get to the harbour. The old town pub awesome setting for a sheesha and drink whilst the Sun goes down. Sad to be leaving... Side old city.. You never know I'll be back x

Nice all inclusive hotel near Side. Good food and beverages and very nice staff. Pool area is big and you got a lot of space there to swim and relax. The beach is near, about 200m, and there is also a beach bar where you can get free drinks and food. There is also a big fitness center downstairs and it has good air conditioner.

If you want to go to Side there is bus rides in every 15 min to the city and back and the cost is only 2e and the ride takes about 25 min.
