Firstly the good points near the beach with generally sea views which are excellent and private to the hotel. There is a beach bar with good food and a drinks bar drinks till 12pm food till 4pm. All the pools are excellent there is an adults only pool 16+ but adults take their children there and children just decide to use it we tried to point out signs etc but had numerous problems. The main pool bar serves drinks throughout the day and there is music and entertainment for all. There are 5 a la carte restaurants but only 2 were open during our stay we tried the Chinese which was very good.
Negatives the distance from the airport 1.45 - 2 hours the rooms are dated and 3* at best you can only get wifi in the lobby area and have to pay if you want coverage elsewhere. Very few English speaking staff this hotel caters mainly for Germans Russians and Turkish we were the only British during our stay. Entertainment was adequate but not 5*. Food was generally good with a good selection but again not 5* we were waiter served only once during our stay again not what I would expect from a 5* hotel. This was the cheapest 5* when we booked in my opinion pay the little extra and stay at a proper 5* hotel such as the dolphin be grande.
We stayed here for a week and were generally very satisfied. Hotel is very big, with hundreds of guests, but you will always find some free sunbed at the pool or table in the restaurant. Food was very good and there was always (too) many options too choose from.
Definitely not a good place for someone looking for peaceful, relaxing time - but we were not expecting that from such a large resort.
Beach area is not perfect either. The beach is full of small rocks rather than sand, so it's difficult to have a longer walk (not to mention running).
We came back to this hotel after 5 years and have not regretted it. Pools and slides were clean and not too crowded. Kids loved the mini disco and play areas. A special thanks for the animators team for keeping kids busy.
We loved the variety of food dishes on offer every day.
Good and big swimming pool , Aqua park is suitable for all. Food is delicious and different each day.beach also good with snack bar. Just one point internet you have to pay. As total it's good and you can spend nice holiday.
Hotel is beautiful. The pools are big and there's plenty of room for everyone. Access to the beach is very easy and quick. The food is great, so maybe you choices of all kinds of dishes, plenty of sweets. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I was traveling with my son, my parents and my brother. My parents had a separate room booked and me, my son and my brother had another one. It turned out they gave us rooms on separate ends of the hotel. It was a little dissaponting but after talking to front desk they were able to give us one family room which consisted of 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 balconies. I am very grateful for their very professional help and making our stay even better. When it comes to communication front desk staff speaks English, the people at the restaurants not so much but you will be able to communicate. There's activities at the pool all day and always something going on at night. There's car rental inside the hotel that we used one day. Prices are not bad. But I know there is also a bus that stops outside of the hotel that can take you to Side or Manavgat, which are not far. I really enjoyed my stay at Amelia and recommend it to everyone.
