Me, my husband 3 kids mum and brother just returned from a weeks stay at WOW TopKapi, i must say the hotel its self you cant fault, there is endless amounts of things to do for all ages, the pool is fantastic, cant comment on the slides as i personally didnt go on them but the kids and husband did and they loved it.
The food is edible there is always something to eat i found the bit outside was more catered to english, everyone was moaning that it was the same every night chips chicken etc its only like at home noone ever cooks a different meal every day! The breakfast is also good for kids pancakes omelettes etc
The night time entertainment could be a little better, the shows in the amphitheater you cant fault it was something different every night and the kids really enjoyed it although when that is finished and you go to the bar near the itallian there is entertainment but mainly aimed at Russian although me and the kids did get involved with karaoke dancing etc and we enjoyed it, the night time entertainment is what you make it, i used to put the music on my phone and no one seemed to mind.
The entertainers need a gold medal for what they do, they dont really get the english involved in what they do like water polo aqua aerobics etc but if you nominate your self they will include you, i loved the aqua aerobics in the morning and the games afterwards i managed to win the Russians twice during the games much to their hate i should mentiom! Walid and Erdal are brilliant people and always took time out to say hello even gave us a hug as we was leaving which was nice
The russions are the mosy ignorant people i have ever come across, they would make spitting noises at you as you walked past as if you are trash! they push in the lines at meal times and also at the bar some bar staff would make a mention to is and they would move to the back of the line others would still serve them first. the bar man on the pool bar was brilliant i cant remember his name he used to bring us bottles of wine and give the kids chocolates he was always so polite and always had a smile for anyone.
The rooms are a little dated but its only someh were to get your head down although there was an english woman next door with 3 kids who i can only describe sounded like she was hitting them constantly! the cleaner didnt really clean, our balcony didnt get swept once whilst we was there which was a pain, fridge was stocked daily and was good enough for us.
There is nothing around the hotel and the shop on site is highly prices 40YTL for goggles! take you own if your travelling along with inflatables also.
Nothing is really advertised like ice cream and coffee place etc
The lady that rolls the bread near the beach is a must! we loved these and basically lived off these in the day!
overall great holiday, its more aimed at Russians as its owned by Russians. would love to go back next year but its far too expensive :-(
