Location is amazing, evertything you need is within the resort:- pools, restaurants, bars, beach.
Rooms are super comfortable & clean. Kudos to the friendly lady who cleaned our room every day, she was amazing.
Food was good.
Waterslides very good for the kids,but our daughter managed to slice her foot open on sharp tile in the pool at the bottom of the slides .
Disgusted to find poo (human excrement) in both pools on three occassions! Twice in the main pool and once in the smaller pool. One time, the child offender looked at me as he was doing it, laughing the whole time. We reported to the attendants each time and were told that this is a common occurance - literally hapening every day and that it was not just children but adults that would do this also! We would do a reconnaissance of the pools each time to check before allowing ourselves to get in. We were gad the sea was nearby as it was thankfully very clean and the water temp was perfect.
Even though there was a no reserve rule for sun beds, everyone was doing it. Very frustrating as the beach was empty from 12pm to 5pm yet all the sun lounges were "reserved" - some unoccupied all day but with a convenient towel draped over them for whenever the owner decided to show up. An attendant said we were fine to remove towels and occupy the sun beds ourselves. We did but witnessed a fight between guests the next day over a reserved spot.
Dissappointed by the rude and often lazy staff. There were a few outstanding individuals, however, which made this tolerable.
Not 5 star but for the deal we got lastminute, we were willing to put up with it.
A party of 8 of us arrived from 2nd - 12th August. We did not choose this Hotel, due to Covid 19 this was the hotel allocated to us. On arrival, we did not know what to expect, although , we did have a sinking feeling when the shuttle pulled up outside, it looked totally different to The Transatlantik which we had originally booked. However, our holiday will be one of my favourites. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Each day the housekeepers would clean and replace towels. And restock the mini bar / fridge .They were so friendly and did some great little touches to the room they even arranged my sisters bed with flowers , decorated the room and left bottle of champagne and a birthday cake in the room for her ! The reps again were so friendly and allowed us to be involved in all the activities day and night, always stopping to chat , making us feel part of the Turkish way ...dancing to their music in the evenings. The Food and the catering staff, again, could not do enough for us, the food was amazing not only in the main restaurant but also in the Italian and Turkish restaurant ... and as for the Turkish lady making the Turkish wraps in the secret Garden ... thank you for allowing me to watch and ask questions .. that woman deserves a massage ! The waitresses , waiters and bar staff, so friendly and would always have a beer ready for me, my new found love of Turkish Beer ! The staff constantly cleaning the pool area , I can honestly say I have never had such a relaxing holiday, even the guest relations manager was wonderful, ensuring we were safe in the town , giving us his phone number in case we got lost .. so informative of where to go. We loved the Turkish music every evening and loved how everyone would dance , welcoming us to dance to the music too. The boat trip around to the caves was beautiful ! I am so pleased we spent our holiday at this resort . We all had such an amazing 10 days, and would like to thank each and every one of the staff who made our holiday so enjoyable. Thank you
We stayed at Amara Marine for one week at the beginning of August. The hotel is in a beautiful location close to the mountains and the sea. I will summarise pros, cons and xovid measures:
Clean rooms, excellent housekeeping. We had a problem with the door but it was dealt with very quickly.
Hardworking, efficient staff- they work long hours in the heat and do a good job. Most speak good English.
In particular, very helpful asian man in the reception area organising taxis and tours. He gave us lots of friendly advice and made us feel welcomed. Also friendly happy staff at the pool bar.
Swimming pools are very clean and the beach is nearby. Lovely clear water although you will need pool shoes as its rocky.
Great selection of food- everything all inclusive. We had plenty of choice.
Spa experience was very good- we had turkish hammam and hot stone massage for a very reasonable price.
Tip boxes are good- you can tip as you pass and not feel pressured to do so every time you have a drink.
There are lots of little stray cats around who are very friendly :)
Not all staff seem happy- maybe they need more breaks. In particular one very rude man serving eggs and pancakes in the morning- he pretty much threw my French toast at me, quite aggressive.
Rooms are a little dated, could do with renovating.
Pool was heated and a little too warm- would be more refreshing if it was 5 degrees cooler!
Mini bar only had one of each item- 2 of each would be nicer so we don't have to fight over them ;)
Gym area was in need of cleaning and some equipment was rusty.
Spa staff friendly but very pushy trying to get us to sign up for more treatments.
The staff are wearing masks and screens are used in dining area. Extra cleaning is taking place and guests have temperature taken. They are doing a good job. However... Russian and Turkish tourists do not seem to understand how to queue? Let alone socially distant queuing- lots of them just push right in in front of you, so you cannot keep your distance if you want to be fed! Would recommend staff enforce masks as they cannot enforce distance.
Overall we had a lovely stay and I would recommend this hotel to others. Thank you to all staff.
