We stayed at Blue Marlin from late September to early October 2023. We really liked the hotel, it is small (capacity for 700 people, but maximum occupancy is 350 people) even during the peak season. The hotel doesn't have much territory, only the street part of the restaurant and the pool. There is nowhere to walk, but you can easily go outside the hotel premises. Neva Outlet is nearby, and across the road there is a Time center with necessary shops (Migros, LC Waikiki, Koton, McDonald's, etc). There is also an amusement park, a large market (with a pharmacy with Russian-speaking staff), and a bus stop nearby (basically, you don't need to go anywhere, everything is within walking distance). More about the hotel: - The food is very delicious and diverse (some write that there is not enough food, but it's not true). - The staff is very attentive and responsive, they always uplift your mood and solve any problems. The waiters quickly remember your taste and bring the drinks to you. - The beach is across the road, just 100 meters from the hotel. But it's not a busy road, it's more like a backyard for bus passage, so cars rarely drive there and it's safe to walk quickly. There was no discomfort from this. - They provide towels on the beach without any time restrictions, they are placed there with cards. There are convenient changing rooms, a toilet, several sunbeds, and a hammock. Further on, there is a unique-shaped pier that is the highlight of the hotel. There is a beach bar with cocktails and snacks, and plenty of seating spaces. In the evenings, concerts of musical bands and DJ performances take place on this pier. In other words, all the fun happens on the pier, and the noise doesn't reach the rooms. - You can swim both from the pier and from the beach, but there is not much space for that. The water was clean, sometimes it became cloudy due to the wind, but it's normal. - The atmosphere in the hotel is very comfortable, pleasant and relaxing music plays during meals. There is no animation, neither noisy nor annoying. Only in the evening at the pier. - There is also a poolside bar. - Another significant advantage is the absence of small children, as there is no kids' club in the hotel, only a small playground for children. There were a few small children during our stay, but they were well-behaved. - There are always enough seats on the beach and in the restaurant, no need to reserve sunbeds in advance (which is very pleasing🤗) - The concept is ultra all-inclusive, so all drinks, including a wide variety of wines, are included in the price. - The rooms are comfortable, clean, and new. The mini-bar was replenished daily, and the safe is free to use. Wifi works perfectly throughout the hotel premises, rooms, and beach, and it is also free. - The room cleaning service is very good, and a pleasant scent remains after each cleaning. - There is a small gym and a game room. - There is also a spa center, where you can use the hammam, sauna, and salt room for free. The spa center has a pool and relaxation areas. I read many reviews before going, and there were many satisfied people who return to this hotel multiple times. I think I've covered everything😊

Valeria, thank you for the informative review 🤗 Could you please tell me until what time the evening events last?

The music at the pier starts around 11 PM and goes on until about 2 AM.

Beauty, just what I need. Thank you again. Decided, I'm going 😁

We were on vacation with my husband. We landed at 8.3, arrived at the hotel at 13., it took a long time to get there, at first there was a delay with the suitcases - we waited for about an hour, and then the driver could not find our hotel. The accompanying letter from TopHotels was carelessly pushed aside, I don't know if it helped or "Alenka" did, but we were immediately checked into a standard room on the first floor with a balcony (although a room with a French balcony was paid for), for your information: in this hotel a French balcony is just an iron partition in front of the window, you cannot go out on it!!! So it's better to pay extra for a standard room. Therefore, we were happy. The room. It was next to the emergency exit, so we had a VIP exit to the pool, no need to wait for the elevator and go through the reception! We really liked it. The rooms are small in size, at first it seems unusual, but since we lived together, we had enough space. The room was well equipped: mini bar - cola, fanta, juice, still and sparkling water, beer (2 bottles of each replenished daily), shampoos, conditioners, brushes, toothpaste, cotton pads, etc. - everything was in abundance, everything was replenished, a tea set was provided. Restaurant. First impression: small, the buffet is not big enough. But it's actually a deceptive impression... Yes, there may not be a kilometer of food, but there is everything! And for the first time, in all my trips to Turkey, whatever I tried, it was delicious! Seriously!!! Every dish - delicious!!! The soups are my favorite, they are amazing here. The meat, fish - everything is perfectly cooked. The vegetables, fruits are fresh, the desserts are incredibly delicious (usually in Turkey they differ in color but taste the same), but here they are really delicious!!! There are no thousands of incomprehensible salads that are usually at Turkish hotels, the salads here are more familiar to us: like olivie, mimosa, etc. Fresh orange juice and smoothies: celery, cucumber - in unlimited quantities at every meal. You don't have to hurry to dinner/lunch, the tables are always full at any time! The waiters are wonderful, they bring drinks, clear the dishes quickly! The manager of the waiters is always on duty, he is there for every meal. He stays from the beginning to the end, coordinates the work of the waiters. I could go on, but to summarize: all the dishes are very delicious, perfectly cooked and made from high-quality ingredients! The service in the restaurant is top-notch. Beach. The hotel is located on the second line, BUT! Believe me, this second line is closer to the first than in some other hotels. You only need to walk about 15 meters along a very beautiful street with lanterns (see photo). There is a beach entry from the shore (sun loungers, umbrellas on the shoreline) as well as a luxurious pier, which has been written about a lot, it is truly luxurious both in appearance and in its amenities. The pier has stairs leading into the water, a lifeguard is on duty, there is a snack bar with unforgettable burgers and a bar with drinks, for an additional fee, there are cabins, there are enough sun loungers and umbrellas for everyone. The waiter occasionally brings ice cream (you can't refuse it since they've already brought it)))))₽, frozen wipes for refreshing (this is bliss!!!), wipes for cleaning glasses. Amazing music plays, and no matter where you are on the pier, you always hear it at the same volume and it is beautiful, it's not annoying at all! A big salute and separate respect to the DJs for their work!!! I read about the music in the reviews earlier, but I never thought it would be so cool, it's not your usual pop music, it's really cool DJ sets!!! By the way, in the evening at the pier, you can visit the à la carte restaurant, you need to make a reservation in advance. One visit is free if you stay at the hotel for 7 nights or more. The seafood restaurant is very delicious and beautiful, with stunning views of the sea at sunset. It's amazing!!! After dinner, the entertainment starts there, there are invited musical artists or the same DJs. Those who want to dance, while the others just relax and enjoy the beautiful views. The waiters who work at the pier are just my favorite! Hi to Yusef! And thank you, you made our vacation unforgettable! To give you an idea of the level of service: as it got closer to night time on the pier at the end of May, it became quite chilly, and the waiter ran and put warm blankets on our shoulders! Cool blue warm blankets with the hotel logo. Very warm and cozy)) drinks are served lightning fast, as soon as you finish the previous one. Of course, a little tip and a smile always decide which waiter will come to you first, and that's normal The hotel also has a very good and modern equipped gym, right across from the game room, with a very good instructor who also organizes various activities during the day. Lastly, I want to say hello and express my heartfelt thanks to Yana, who works at guest relations (near the reception desk). She is an amazing girl, she is definitely in the right place! She always greets me, asks how I am, and if everything is okay. She solves any issues with a snap of her fingers (I asked for a smaller pillow, an additional blanket, and within an hour it was done!). If I had any questions about how to get somewhere or where to buy something, she always helped and gave advice. And here's a story: we took a bus to Alanya and when we returned, we realized that we had lost the key card to our room. I turned to Yana, ready to pay a fine or go back to look for it, but Yana went to the reception, made us a new key within a minute, and said, "What fine? Are you kidding? They have plenty of these cards!" I was just shocked!!! Thank you, Yana!!! One fine day, we went out for a walk and when we returned, there was a surprise in our room: fruits, pastries, and a bottle of wine, for no reason at all! And a note saying "+1 small joy for today." It was very pleasant and unexpected! Thank you again! As for the location, the hotel is located across the road from a shopping center (with an elevator bridge), where we have our favorite Waikiki, De Facto, Cotton, Migros, and many other stores, as well as a Western Union currency exchange. It takes 2 minutes by bus to get to Alanya, with a bus stop right at the bridge next to the hotel. We went for a walk in Alanya (visited the fortress, took the funicular, and swam at a wild beach). On our way back to the airport, it took us 6 hours, but that is not a hotel issue, I just mentioned it for those who plan to stay at Blue Marlin. In conclusion, the hotel is wonderful, mainly because of its service and staff. We will definitely come back here and recommend it to all our friends! If I missed anything in my review, please feel free to ask, I will gladly answer!

We stayed at this hotel in the middle of October in the year 223. It was our fifth time in Turkey. We chose a hotel within our budget with good reviews. The hotel fully lived up to our expectations and reality, I would even say it was better than we imagined. The staff were very friendly and caring, especially the bartender Celal (with an earring in his left ear), he was just an awesome guy! Russian-speaking Yana and Olga will solve any of your problems. The staff were very accommodating. The hotel grounds were not very big, but cozy. The hotel was fresh, nothing was worn out or broken. The internet worked throughout the hotel and the pier. There was plenty of food for every taste, as well as imported alcohol. The pier was a special feature. There were always plenty of sunbeds and a good bar. If you want, you can rent a VIP cabana on the pier for 5/9/1 Euro. They have yoga sessions on the pier in the morning and DJs and live music in the evening. The location of the hotel is fantastic. There are markets and small shopping centers with cheap goods nearby. There is also a bus stop, and it costs 25 lira to get to the center of Alanya on bus number 5. Overall, we are very satisfied with the hotel and we will definitely return there again!

Our wonderful vacation with my mom took place in this hotel. I want to thank all the hotel staff for their hard work, attentiveness, and responsiveness. I would like to highlight some of the employees: Yana, Yasmina, Tanya, Muhammad Polat, Aryol, Fikret, Ebubekir, Ahmet, I don't remember the name of the gardener. The beach is beautiful, with a lovely pier, and the sea entry is very comfortable. The food is diverse and very tasty. The waiters run around and try very hard. There are discos almost every day. There is not much entertainment, but we don't need it. The beds are very comfortable, and the bedding is pleasant. The bar is great. In one word: I recommend it!

This year we decided to switch from Sirius Deluxe to Blue Marlin. We haven't regretted it once. First of all, thanks to the bungalow on the pier. Secondly, the food. Thirdly, the almost complete absence of children. Yes, the rooms are slightly smaller than usual, and the sound insulation due to the open terrace could be better, but the pier, the food, and the staff's attitude smooth out all the minor flaws. In the restaurant, despite the seemingly familiar set of ingredients, small culinary masterpieces were created. A nice bonus was freshly squeezed juice and unlimited detox. What's strange is that the coffee is awful, which is surprising for Turkey. However, the desserts are definitely a plus, not just a selection of the same sponge cake decorated with different colored creams. For the first time in numerous trips, we didn't go to the restaurant for lunch because what was prepared on the pier was more than satisfactory. Kudos to the team for cleanliness, attitude, and the quality of the preparation. The availability of non-alcoholic beer is a bonus for me personally, and a rich mix of snacks is a bonus for my spouse. Another small downside is the occasional "approach" of debris in the water near the beach, but that's not the hotel's fault, it's a characteristic of the location.

We stayed at this hotel with our family of four. The hotel is new, stylish, and pleasant. Everywhere is clean, both at the pier and throughout the hotel grounds. The food is excellent, everything is delicious and there is plenty of variety. All the alcohol is imported and of good quality. The staff is highly commendable! Everything is fantastic!! We definitely want to come back to this hotel. Keep it up!!! The evening entertainment is superb, there are always performances at the pier. The hotel is perfectly located, everything is nearby - Nevа outlet, shopping centers, and there are places to walk in the evening. You can take a bus to Alanya, it's a 5-minute ride. The pier deserves special praise, it is very beautiful and stylishly decorated. Overall, it's clear that they are making an effort, and the guest service is first-class. We will definitely come back next year, it's a hotel we want to return to.

We have visited this hotel 5 (!) times in two years. I think there is no need to list all the positives, it is probably clear that we are in love with this place. We went there three times with my husband, and two times with my husband and mother. In this review, I want to particularly mention the staff. During this time, the guys have become like a real family to us. It feels like we have come home, where we are loved and awaited. Of course, this somewhat compromises the objectivity of my review, but in fairness, I will say that even the first time we returned to this hotel because of the people. Everything else is just a very big and pleasant bonus. For those who are planning their vacation, I will say that the hotel is very cozy and peaceful. There are no loud noises, hyperactive animators (there is yoga in the morning, bag painting workshops during the day, and Zumba in the afternoon, that's about it), noisy water slides, a large number of pools (just an adult and a kids' pool), huge flowerbeds, etc. The territory is small, but the hotel itself is very small too. It is not suitable for those who are looking for the usual Turkey experience. Here, it's all about relaxation and chilling. In the morning, calming music plays during breakfast so you can enjoy your pancakes or omelettes. Background tracks play on the pier, making it impossible to do anything active - you just want to lie down and slowly turn into jelly. After getting a little sun-kissed and reaching the desired jelly consistency, you can slide into the sea - it's very convenient to do so from the pier. By the way, we were very lucky with the sea this time - it was clean, transparent, and almost always calm for the entire 12 days. We even saw some fish (I suspect one was eyeing my feet to nibble on, though it's possible she just liked my pedicure. This is a joke, of course - the fish were just swimming by). On the pier, which should be on the Maldives and not in Turkey according to all the canons, there is a bar. There you can order coffee, tea, water, cocktails of any kind, beer, or other alcohol. You can snack on nuts with all of that. And from noon, a fast food kitchen opens under the neighboring canopy. We had lunch there during the last few days, instead of the restaurant, simply because we wanted to look at the sea and not move. Every evening, we enjoyed the sunset. It is truly magical, and you get even more lost - it just can't be like this in Turkey, it's more like a paradise island from the commercials. I recommend looking at the photos with the geotag Blue Marlin on Instagram - they are amazing. Every evening, the pier organizes some entertainment program for those who survived the day and found the strength to get up, dress up, and come. Usually, it's live music or sometimes just music chosen by J. In general, catering to different tastes. On Sundays, they set up a projector on the pier and show a movie in English with subtitles. We were lucky to see "Singin' in the Rain" - it was fantastic. And on Sundays, there is also an hour of classical music on the pier. And it is not played through speakers - a quartet of musicians performs on the pier, and the staff treats guests to champagne (!). We have grown very fond of this hotel and its people. For the comfort, attention, and warmth provided. If you are a partygoer and enjoy wild nights out, this place is probably not for you. But if you are looking for something unique and want everything to be calm and relaxed, you should definitely visit Blue Marlin at least once. You will be amazed by the pier with straw-roofed cabins, the crystal-clear turquoise sea, and the incredible people.

We stayed at this hotel from May 31st to June 14th, 2023. There were two adults and one 5-year-old child. We were given a room for two, which means there were two single beds, or they offered a double bed. When I asked where the child would sleep, they offered a baby cot. Are you serious? I paid for a room for three and got two single beds. Where will the third person sleep? I always stay in 5-star hotels in Turkey, but I have never encountered such a small room. On the positive side, the alcohol quality was very good, and the bartenders were great at the pier. They made incredibly beautiful and tasty cocktails. The DJs Atakan and Mesut played excellent music, and their drum shows were amazing. All the invited artists were simply outstanding. During the day, there was a symphony orchestra at the pier, performing classical music. It was incredible to enjoy the sea and classical music at the same time. However, be aware that the music in the evening only lasts until 3 am, and then you can do whatever you want, although there is a lot of partying happening on the neighboring piers. It's not clear why they close the music early, considering they have such a pier where tourists can't hear it and they like to sleep. Overall, the hotel is very nice, but there is nothing for children to do there. There are occasional activities like making crafts or baking pizzas, but then the children have nothing to do. As for the food, half of the buffet is sweets. Why? It would be better to add different cheeses and other snacks. We stayed at the hotel for two weeks during strawberry season, and we were only given strawberries once. The whole selection of food became boring, and I even memorized the arrangement of dishes. The food is quite limited, and there is no self-service for tea/coffee. You have to wait for the waiters and make a request, but there is no guarantee that they will bring it. The sea in the middle of the pier is dirty. They should at least clean up the garbage. I understand that it's not the hotel's fault, but when you pay a lot of money, you don't want to swim in a dump. The hotel is far from Antalya airport, about a 3-hour drive. I recommend using individual transfer services. Regarding the à la carte restaurants, we made a reservation, but when we arrived on the designated day, everything was closed due to bad weather. Couldn't they have warned us in advance, considering that we had approached the reception earlier? Overall, their organization receives 2 points. The à la carte dinner on the pier is very romantic and beautiful.

Just returned and immediately want to share my impressions of staying at the Blue Marlin Blue Spa & Resort hotel. Let's start with the order. The hotel has a very fortunate location relative to the infrastructure - there is a nearby bus stop (2-25 minutes to Alanya, bus number 5 regularly), shops, pharmacies, parks with attractions, and places for evening walks. The hotel itself is beautiful, the area is not very large, but everything is arranged well. The rooms are spacious and cozy, designed in a modern style, everything is thought out to the smallest detail and equipped with everything necessary for a comfortable stay. Internet in the room and throughout the area, including the pier, is excellent. Cleaning is done daily and of high quality. The food is diverse and delicious, with fish, meat, plenty of fruits, delicious coffee, and an assortment of sweets that are second to none. There is an excellent selection of alcoholic beverages, especially a variety and uniqueness of cocktails. The staff is polite, friendly, and the bartenders and waiters are very attentive. Absolutely ALL hotel employees work effectively and disciplined, which characterizes the hotel as a well-coordinated and powerful mechanism. I would especially like to thank the group of animators Tatiana and Jasmine, who organize various events with a very careful and tactful approach. Every evening there are interesting programs, movie screenings by the sea, live music, discos, and numerous activities during the day for every taste - fitness classes, Zumba, handicraft workshops, creative activities. One of the most vivid impressions and unforgettable memories will be the pier. The PIER is the highlight of the hotel! It has relaxing music - beautiful and soothing, and at times rhythmic (kudos to the DJ!). It offers a splendid view of the sea, delicious cocktails of various kinds, and attentive staff on the beach who create cleanliness and comfortable leisure time... Of course, it is difficult to describe in words, it is better to see and experience the atmosphere of the pier personally! In general, I am very satisfied with my stay at the Blue Marlin Blue Spa & Resort hotel and I recommend it to anyone planning a vacation in Turkey.

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night. We chose it based on the ratings on Booking.com, and the hotel really lived up to our expectations. Pros: - Excellent food and quality selection of drinks and alcohol. - Fantastic staff. Everyone, from the cleaning staff, bartenders, waiters, receptionists, to the lifeguards at the beach and pool, were great. The entertainers (if you can call them that) were also beautiful and tried their best. - The rooms were small but cozy, with good renovations and quality furniture. - The hotel had a great stylish round pier with a bar and comfortable sunbeds, which were always available, and umbrellas. - The evening programs on the pier were interesting, and there was a plaza called Time Center with a market and a shopping center nearby. - The guests were normal, without rowdy drunk gatherings or noisy discos. Cons: - The rooms did not have bathrobes at all, which might be the hotel's concept. - The sea entrance from the beach was quite sharp, with large and not very pleasant gravel. The sea itself was quite dirty, possibly due to the fact that services (which were not part of the hotel) for banana boat rides, parachuting, scooters, etc., were provided on the left side of the pier. We saw oil stains on the water surface. It was better to swim on the pier, but even there, trash accumulated. Perhaps due to the waves, a lot of garbage washed up on the shore every day, and although the waves were small, they were noticeable. - There were no entertainment options specifically for children. If you have children under 1 year old, they might get bored because there were no water slides or proper animation. The hotel is more suitable for couples, group vacations, or young people. Overall, the vacation went well.

Good day, friends! My husband and I spent 12 days as tourists. It took us 2 hours to get from the airport. We arrived at noon and were immediately checked in on the 4th floor with a view of the pool. There were no complaints about the room, slippers, bath amenities, and hairdryer were provided. The minibar was restocked daily. The safe was free and nothing went missing. We had one double bed, so there was only one blanket, but when we asked, they brought us another one. A young man walked through the corridors offering champagne, strawberries, and fruits. There is a food delivery service to the room. The hotel grounds are compact, just the way we like it. You walk out, go downstairs, and you're in the restaurant. The elevators work excellently. Everything is clean, tidy, and fresh. I won't talk much about the food, you can see the variety on our meal photos. The service is fantastic, the staff work like bees. They bring coffee and tea in the mornings. There are many types of coffee. I took photos of the menus, they are the same in all the bars. There are over 18 types of cocktails, and in our 12 days, we couldn't try them all. The mojito and pina colada were delicious. All the bartenders are excellent. Gulshen is great! Yunus is the best waiter, he runs around the pier taking orders. We ate a la carte and the food was delicious. They congratulated us on my birthday with a complimentary cake and bottle of champagne. The beach is very close, just a couple of minutes' walk. Mostly, we relaxed only on the pier. There was a storm for two days and all the trash was brought to the middle of the pier. I would advise the lifeguards to get a large net and collect all the trash, as they just stand there. During those moments, we swam from the shore where the entrance had sand and small pebbles. The sea is beautiful, turquoise. The sunbeds don't have mattresses, but they are comfortable. We can take towels from the pool or near the beach toilets. At 3:15 pm, they distribute ice cream on the pier. The hotel can confidently be rated as for 16+. There were very few children, which was a huge plus for us. There is no entertainment, which is why we chose this hotel. At 4:30 pm, the DJ starts playing, and the music is great! In the evening, there is either live music or they simply play until late. Then the pier closes and everyone moves to the pool, where the night restaurant opens. The waiters still work even at that time. Twice a week, they hold workshops on making cases, bouquets, bags, and towels. In the season, you need to sign up at the reception in advance. It's free. At 11:30 am and 3 pm. There is yoga, Zumba, and other activities on the pier. On the last day, after checking out, we went to the spa. There is a salt room, a hammam, a sauna, and a heated pool. There are separate showers and they provide towels, shampoos, and hairdryers. It's a good place to freshen up before leaving. You don't need to extend the room. Most of the guests at the hotel are from Russia, but there were also people from Turkey, Israel, Poland, and other countries. The majority are couples or young people. There were also seniors. There is a shopping center and a bazaar across the road. We didn't go to the club. On Wednesdays, there is a local market. You can reach Alanya by bus number 5 for 17 liras per person. We would gladly return to this hotel. Thank you for the great vacation! Go ahead and book your trip confidently!

I will start with personal impressions. I really liked everything, there were only positive impressions and emotions, and there is an immediate answer to the question of whether I would return to this hotel - definitely Yes! We checked in at night and were immediately accommodated, given a room of the chosen category. The room itself is clean, bright, everything works, no issues arose. One thing that caught my eye was the small size of the room, but you forget about it the very next day. It's worth noting that there are rooms with French balconies, where on the lower floors it really is like a French balcony, and on the upper floors it's just a window. We had a room with a balcony and a view of the pool. The food is of good quality, there may not be 15 dishes or plates, but there is always a choice. The service is provided by waiters (for drinks). Breakfasts are standard. Lunch and dinner include different types of fish and meat, both fried and steamed. The calamari (very well prepared), mussels, and shrimp salad were served a few times. Vegetables, local dishes, etc. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are primarily served in the main restaurant. Snacks are available near the pool during the day (pizza, hamburgers) and snacks on the beach (pasta, hamburgers, french fries, fish nuggets, wraps). Late dinner is available until 3 AM if you need a snack. Coffee and tea at any bar are of excellent quality. The hotel's masterpiece is the bar and its cocktails, all of them different and delicious. Alcohol is of UAL category. The sea - the entrance from the beach is sandy, very comfortable without corals. The pier is lovely, with sunbeds, cabanas (additional charge), a snack bar, a bar, and a stage for evening shows. Pleasant music and everything for a peaceful rest. There are no daily entertainment activities. There is yoga in the morning and some form of dancing after lunch (held on the pier). On the way to the beach, there is ArtSide where masterclasses are held before and after lunch, and you can make wonderful things with your own hands. There are evening shows: live music, DJ, karaoke on the pier. There are no entertainment activities specifically for children, but the animators pay attention to them. To personally know what I wanted to know before arriving at the hotel and not waste time discovering it during the vacation: there is a heated pool on one of the floors (in the spa area), a small but cozy gym, a game room (billiards, air hockey, chess, table football) which can be visited at any time. What I liked the most is the atmosphere of the hotel, calm, elegant, no unnecessary noise, and few children (which is a plus for some, like us). The hotel is compact, and it is very fast and convenient to get to any point. Everything is fresh, beautiful, with a pleasant smell. The details that highlight the hotel's advantages are the blankets on the pier, which can be used if it gets chilly during the evening shows. Ice cream and moist frozen towels are provided in the middle of the day (to help cool down), and there is a shoe cleaning machine at the reception. The staff is pleasant, polite, smiling, and cheerful. They can find a common language with everyone, even if you speak different languages. Among the advantages is also the hotel's location - Konakli, next to the hotel (across the road) is the Time Center (stores like Mavi, Defacto, Waikiki, Colin's, etc.), I should note that the stores here look more decent than in the center of Alanya and there is a greater selection. Plus, there is a standard Turkish market where you can find everything. On the side of the hotel, there is an outlet. And there are places for walks, eating corn on the cob, sitting near fountains. On the left side of the hotel, there is a bus stop. It takes 3 minutes to get to Alanya, and the fare is 17 lire or 1 dollar/1 euro for one person. I confidently recommend this hotel, it looks very worthy in its price category! I wish every tourist an unforgettable vacation (in a good sense)!!! P.S. On tour operator websites, you can see slides in one of the pools and a small pool under an umbrella (like a mushroom) for children - they are not there at the hotel.

I'll start from the very beginning. We stayed at the hotel from May 14th to May 24th. We flew from Moscow to Antalya for just over 4 hours with Corendon Airlines. The tour was organized by Fun&Sun. We traveled to the hotel for about 2 and a half hours on a minibus with a stop at a store. We arrived at the hotel around noon. When booking, we requested the cheapest room option, ELUXE STANDARD WITH FRENCH BALCONY, which means without a balcony. However, we were assigned a room with a balcony on the 6th floor half an hour after our arrival. The room had a TV, safe, refrigerator, and kettle with tea amenities. The mini-fridge was stocked with cola, Fanta, juice, carbonated and non-carbonated water, and beer. Everything was replenished daily during housekeeping. The bathroom had shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, a shower cap, soap, toothbrush, and toothpaste. From the room, we had a view of the pool, but the entrance door had large gaps, so we could hear ambulances passing by on the highway very clearly. The food was very enjoyable. My husband and I are not gourmets, but there was always plenty to choose from. The soups for breakfast, lunch, and dinner were quite decent. Freshly squeezed orange juice was also included. In previous hotels where we stayed, it was usually not free. The drinks were served by waiters who were all very polite and friendly. Many of them knew Russian. There were no coffee machines or large display fridges. All the drinks were served at the bars. They also had ayran, so just ask for it and they'll give it to you. For breakfast, they served soups, porridge, eggs, omelets, pancakes, waffles, and honeycomb honey. At the entrance to the restaurant, there was a fridge with yogurts for children, as well as small jars of mashed puree. For lunch and dinner, they offered veal, lamb, chicken, fish, and beef tongue. Everything was very delicious. There were no queues, maybe because we were there at the beginning of the season. All the alcoholic drinks were of excellent quality. The beach was very close by. There was a lot written about the pier, so I won't repeat it. I want to highlight the work of the lifeguards. The sea was stormy for a couple of days during our stay, but our people are not easily scared. The bravest ones or those who dared a little still tried to get into the water. The lifeguards pulled them out with some persuasions. Thank you for their patience and attentiveness. The hotel has a very good location. There are shops and a market nearby, and there is a nice place to walk in the evening. Overall, we really liked the hotel, but I think it might be boring for families with children. The absence of water slides and entertainment was a plus for us. During the vacation, it was my husband's birthday, and the hotel staff congratulated him with wine and a delicious mini cake. It was unexpected and very pleasant. Will we come back here? Definitely, YES. (Only if the price decreases). We will wait and hope. See you next time!

We would like to thank Olga for her work. Initially, there were problems with check-in due to a hotel program failure, and we had to wait for a couple of hours to be accommodated. However, due to this situation, our tourists were given an excellent luxurious room and received many compliments from the hotel - flowers, wine, and nuts! Everything was wonderful! Our tourists were extremely satisfied with the hotel and said, "If it's better, then it's definitely Rios! Olga is outstanding!" The tourists really enjoyed everything - the food, atmosphere, service, and the beach! We appreciate the vacation and the quick feedback and assistance in resolving all the issues!

I am vacationing in Turkey for not the first time and have something to compare it to. This hotel is absolutely AMAZING in every aspect!!! I could go on describing it for a long time and only from the best point of view! Everything that is written in the good reviews is true! Yes, it is a hotel for adults only, but that's a plus (after noisy big hotels with lots of constantly running, jumping, and screaming children, I have nothing against them 🥰) If you are going on vacation as a couple or to relax, then you must come here without any hesitation. BLUE MARLIN ELUXE SPA & RESORT 5* is the best hotel!!!

The author of the review did not provide a detailed description of their stay at the hotel. I want to share my impressions of my stay at the hotel in more detail.

Hotel, great! It will appeal to those who do not like noisy entertainment, crowds of people, and restaurant queues. Everything is calm, unobtrusive. Friendly staff, new renovations, super beach and pier with new loungers and umbrellas! The food is edible and there is a wide selection! Beautiful, stylish furniture, new plumbing, close to the center! There are 2 shopping centers, pharmacies, and shops nearby! The SPA was very enjoyable. The hotel has a 24/7 Russian-speaking manager named Anna, who helps with any question. It is very pleasant to communicate with her! We were checked in right after breakfast, no need to wait until 2 PM, although it is supposed to be. The rooms were cleaned properly every day, and bed linen was changed twice. We liked everything and won't be surprised if we return for the third time! We definitely recommend the hotel!

Just got back from our vacation at this hotel. We love Turkey and we go to new hotels every time. This is our first review, but the hotel truly deserves it. We arrived late, around 2 am, and they checked us in and offered to go to the restaurant for some food. The restaurant is open until 3 am. The bar is open 24 hours. The range of imported alcohol is top-notch: whiskey, rum, vermouth, champagne, tequila, and more. A selection for every taste. The cocktail menu is like in trendy bars (Negroni, Daiquiri, Aperol Spritz, Campari, and whatever you want). Packaged juices, energy drinks, tonics, and coffee machines with whole bean coffee. Everything is in glass bottles or cans. The bartenders and waiters are polite, unobtrusive, smiling, fast, and remember guest preferences, which is nice. The food is very diverse. For breakfast, there are freshly squeezed juices, smoothies (celery, cucumber, greens), Italian-style bruschetta, omelets, scrambled eggs, porridge, hot snacks, pastries, halva, dried fruits, and countless appetizers. For lunches and dinners, there were several types of fish daily (trout, sea bream), turkey, chicken, tongue, liver, lamb on bones, mussels, all sorts of appetizers, side dishes. On the beach, they make 4 types of pasta, hamburgers, hot dogs, fish & chips, fruits are always available, and there are 3 types of ice cream in packets that they bring to you! Even if you think you don't want and won't go for ice cream, they bring it, and you can't refuse anymore :) The desserts are beautiful but monotonous (but at least you won't eat too much :) ). The service is top-notch, the rooms are fresh, the cleaning is daily and wet, the minibar in the room is replenished daily, the internet throughout the hotel is excellent (suitable for work). The territory is compact and every detail is thought out, everything is clean and neat. There is a beautiful pier on the beach where we always rested, it's nice to walk, no need to shake off the sand, there are showers right next to each descent into the sea, no need to return towels and take cards, everything is freely accessible, which is comfortable, there are mattresses and floats for everyone. The sea was warm in October. During the day, you can attend creative events: coloring cosmetic bags, making crafts. There is a room with salt where you can breathe, a hammam, and saunas. In the evening, after dinner, we walked through the shops and shopping center, which are within walking distance. In the evenings, there are always musical programs with live music, dancing, and more, we really enjoyed it! The hotel guests were sociable, we met a lot of people and chatted, danced. On Sundays, there was a movie night. They provide blankets if you get cold. Security is everywhere. We want to thank Anna (guest relation manager). She asked daily how our vacation was going, if we had any remarks or wishes, she told us everything, a pleasant girl with whom you can solve any issue. And thanks to Ali Kaymak (Hotel manager) for his work, he is always with the guests, interested in their vacation, works from early morning till late at night, constantly observes and immediately gets involved in any questions. It is evident that he loves his work and the guests who come to this hotel and wants to do everything possible for their great vacation. We had a celebration during our vacation, and the hotel congratulated us with a beautiful compliment (a bouquet of flowers, fruits, wine in the room). We were very pleased! We can confidently recommend this hotel, and for the first time, it seems that we might break our rule of "not going to the same hotel twice" :) Igor and Angela from Belarus. Thank you for everything!

Very good hotel, my wife chose it to celebrate her anniversary and she didn't go wrong. The hotel is located a little bit away from the beach, in my opinion, but it is quiet, cozy, and calm. And most importantly, there are very few guests with children!!!! The receptionist, Anna, is a Russian-speaking hotel employee and she is amazing. She helps with everything, for which we are very grateful. The hotel bar is beyond praise, I have never seen such a variety of alcohol and other beverages included in the all-inclusive system. They have bottled Coca-Cola, Sprite, Schweppes, beer, and mineral water. The alcohol selection is superb, with Jameson, several types of bourbon, and Jack Daniel's available. It speaks volumes. They even pour Chivas. The bartenders are knowledgeable and make excellent cocktails and coffee. This is regarding the lobby bar and the poolside bar. The beach bar was a bit lacking, perhaps due to its distance. We had to point out where to pour in order to get a tasty drink :)) I would like to separately mention the restaurant. There is plenty of food, several kinds of meat, appetizers, and other dishes. However, in my opinion, everything tastes bland and not very delicious. The pancakes that a woman fried at the bar seemed tasty to me until I tried the real Gezleme in the mountains. It's like night and day. The rooms are cleaned like everywhere else, with a cloth just pushing the dirt into the corners. But after Anna complained about them, everything started anew. The room was sparkling, and there were regularly swans or dinosaurs made out of the towels on the bed. The magical touch makes a big difference. Overall, an excellent hotel. I will definitely return for a week when the opportunity arises!

We stayed at this hotel with my husband in October. I will say right away that after several years of traveling to Turkey, this is the first hotel with such a luxurious approach to guests where you never feel uncomfortable. I will explain below, but for now, I'll start from the beginning. We arrived at 11 am and were immediately checked into our room. The room was standard, small, everything was clean, tidy, and smelled good. Speaking of the room: there was a mini-bar (Coke, Fanta, Sprite, mineral water, juice, Efes beer in cans, 0.33 liters). The beer and water were replenished daily, we didn't drink the rest, so we don't know. In the room, there was a kettle, tea, coffee, powdered creamer, sugar, cups, a large bottle of water for the kettle, a safe, hangers, TV, air conditioning, everything was working properly. Russian channels on the TV were disabled. In the bathroom, there were 5 towels, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion in small containers. There was also soap, cotton pads, cotton swabs, and a shower cap. Everything was replenished daily. The cleaning was excellent! The hotel grounds included a swimming pool and pathways around it, or rather, there were none, and there was no need for them! If you want to take a walk, there is a great promenade street with a shop and a huge market near the hotel. The sea is very close, just a meter away, and the hotel's beach starts. The hotel's beach is small with fine gravel, in some places it's as fine as sand. On the beach, there are 5 rows of sun loungers on the right side and 3 rows of double sun loungers on the left side. There were always free seats. Further, there is a pier, a separate attraction for all hotel guests. On the pier, there is a bar and a snack bar where they make amazing burgers (and more) with delicious beef patties, sauce, and melted cheese from 12 pm to 5 pm. There are also several types of pasta on the menu, which the chef prepares in front of you, chicken lavash similar to shawarma, and something else. You can't try everything! The bar is a separate highlight of the hotel - there are all kinds of drinks, as you please. In the photo, there is one of the bars, but there were more, I just didn't take a photo of them. My apologies if I spelled the names wrong. The non-alcoholic bar surprised me the most. I have never seen such a variety before. There were two types of Bern, cold tea, four types of Schweppes - lime/fig/apple/classic, Coke, Sprite, Fanta, mineral water, plain water - all in small glass bottles (only Bern was in cans). It was very nice to see that they didn't serve drinks in tap water glasses, and this was the case in all the hotel bars - it was great! The bartenders are all great guys, friendly, especially Okan. He speaks Russian fairly well, tries to pay attention to everyone, and makes delicious cocktails! Another thing that surprised us was that there is no entertainment at the hotel. They don't offer to go on shopping trips, there are no intrusive photographers, and the spa staff doesn't push their services on you. It's such a pleasure when you don't feel uncomfortable refusing people who offer you something every day. Relaxing music plays in the hotel area and on the beach, and you can just relax and enjoy it without anyone calling you or offering anything - just bliss. Every morning, except on Sundays, there is Yoga Stretching in the hotel with professional trainer Irina, who has a lot of experience in ballet and yoga. She is truly a professional in her field and before starting the session, she always asks about individual body characteristics, contraindications, and so on. She tells you what exercises you can do and what you should avoid. I have never seen such an approach to sports before! At 3:45 pm, Irina conducts an intensive workout with a focus on cardio and muscle training - also great! And the gym itself is not big, but all the equipment is modern and cool, you can see that it's expensive and luxurious. Another surprise is the game room. Usually, these zones in hotels require additional payment, but not here. The game room has billiards, air hockey, table hockey, and all of this is free. It was very nice. On the way to the beach, there is a table for tennis. As for the food, I can say that everything was very delicious. The selection is not huge, there are not kilometers of pots, but there are 3-4 side dishes, 3-4 types of meat, 3-4 types of stewed vegetables, cutlets, and it was all so delicious. Thank you, chef! There is an abundance of greens, fresh vegetables, fruits, and desserts. The spa is also great - sauna, Turkish sauna, steam room, salt room, and indoor swimming pool - all in excellent condition. They provide towels, water, shampoos/gels in the showers. Well, that's probably it! In conclusion, I will say that my husband and I had a great time at this VIP spa and we relaxed both mentally and physically. We have never been to the same hotel before, but we liked it so much here that we decided to come again. Thank you, Blue Marlin, for the unique approach to organizing our vacation!

Wow effect! ("Generation P" by V. Pelevin). I didn't expect it. The only downside of the hotel (or rather, "well, that's how it is") is the distance from the airport, it's quite far. Everything else is just a matter of personal preference, whether you need animation, a large territory, or a stunning view from the windows. If the answer to all these questions is "not necessary," then the hotel is a 5++. Yes, it's small, and yes, there's another hotel in front of it, so 99% of the rooms will have a view of the pool. But the Blue Marlin pier is simply magical, you can spend your entire vacation there. If you don't need a pier, then there's an excellent entrance to the sea in that area. I would like to separately mention the work of the bartenders at the pier, it's like the movie "Cocktail" (if anyone hasn't seen it, I recommend it). They put their soul into every cocktail (of course, it can get busy in the evening when there are many vacationers, but small tips can solve that issue), and the alcohol, except maybe for the traditional rakia, is imported. It was the first time I encountered champagne in a hotel in Turkey, although usually I opt for the ULTRA concept. I would also like to point out the excellent burgers at the pier after lunch. In general, it seemed to me that the hotel owner is not from Turkey. Every evening there is live music, and the repertoire is all classical music from the 70s and 80s, European, Latin, and even "My Grandmother Smokes a Pipe"))). After the live music, J starts his magic, and during my entire stay, I probably didn't hear a single Turkish melody (I don't mean to offend Turkish culture, but in other hotels, it was usually favored, and I got tired of it). The food is also good. Well, not Michelin 3-star, but everything is abundant. The hotel is located in a village, so it's scorching hot during the day, but after dinner, you can stroll through the shopping centers. I'm not a shopaholic, but I noticed that branded clothing (probably due to the local currency exchange rate) has very "tasty" prices. They accept the MIR card, and the exchange rate with the Tinkoff card was around 3.6 lira. Although I brought some cash dollars with me, bought at a not very advantageous rate compared to the exchange rate, I brought back more than half of the cash. Well, I guess I'll wrap it up. The price/quality ratio of the hotel is a solid 5. P.S. Oh, I almost forgot, one of the main advantages is that the hotel is relatively new, everything is beautiful, everything works. We had a spacious two-room family suite, and it was all pleasant emotions.

We stayed at this hotel in June 2022, with two children! The hotel is great, unlike the typical Turkish ones, it's better! The first thing worth mentioning is that all the hotel staff try very hard. They even bring champagne with coffee for breakfast! The hotel is small, clean, new, and well-maintained. The pool is not big, but in the morning, there's nobody there, so we swam until 1 pm alone. It takes 2-3 minutes to walk to the beach. The pier is huge and goes deep into the sea. There's a bar on the pier where you can have a cocktail or a snack! The view and sea breeze are wonderful! There's an excellent selection of alcohol, with all the popular cocktails available. My husband enjoyed the Whiskey Sour, and if they make Aperol, they serve it in a large Aperol glass. The wine is also delicious. When they open a bottle with a corkscrew, they pour it into glasses wrapped in a white napkin. The entertainment is also top-notch. During the day, you can engage in creative activities with a glass of champagne, and in the evening, there's live music on the pier! Sometimes, a DJ played music on the pier after lunch. We even watched a movie on the pier. The children were thrilled - a large screen, popcorn, and a towel instead of a pillow on each sunbed! In general, I have been to Turkey more than once, but I experienced this level of service for the first time! I highly recommend this hotel!

Good day! We took a vacation in June 222. The hotel for our stay was chosen by our daughter and son-in-law from the UK, so we were hardly involved in the decision making. Our main focus was on sun, sea, beach, and most importantly, the long-awaited reunion and vacation with our loved ones who live in different parts of the world. There were seven of us from four generations and three countries, ranging in age from 5 to 82. We were very concerned about our Mother. After all, the long flight, unusual diet, climate, and the lingering effects of prolonged anti-COVID restrictions could have affected our vacation. Perhaps my review will not be very useful for those planning a vacation, as I am writing this review not with the intention of comparing or evaluating the hotel based on any criteria, but to express gratitude for the invaluable work of the entire hotel team, from the top management to the most inconspicuous technical staff who create all the conditions for a fulfilling vacation. Thanks to their polite and caring attitude, our stay was very memorable and absolutely amazing. We were satisfied and happy during our vacation. We had no reason to complain. Previously, we never considered returning to the same place for a vacation, as we always wanted to explore something new each time. But now, we are considering returning to this hotel for our next vacation. Thank you! We wish you continued prosperity! Good luck!

We stayed at the hotel from August 17th to August 28th, just the two of us with our daughter. We flew from Moscow and took Turkish Airlines for both the outbound and return flights. This was our second visit to the hotel and our 16th visit to sunny Turkey. The first time we stayed at this hotel was for 5 days at the end of August in 2021. The hotel left us with the most pleasant memories, so after booking the tour through Pegasus, we reached out to Anna, the hotel representative, with our accommodation requests. We have been to Alanya several times and already know that the journey to the hotel takes about 2 hours. We arrived at the hotel at 11 am. We were prepared to wait for our room until 2 pm, but it was provided to us immediately and it was exactly the one we requested. During our visit, the hotel had a 1% occupancy rate. The hotel is new, it's in its second season, and is already popular. Now, some information about the hotel for those who haven't made a decision yet. First and foremost, the reception area. It's small, but all the furniture is arranged in a way that creates a cozy and comfortable space. There is a piano for those who are interested. There are many different decorative elements that immediately highlight the hotel's individuality. Anna, the hotel representative, will welcome you right away. You can approach her throughout the day with any questions you may have. She is very pleasant and sociable. She always asks how your vacation is going, if everything is satisfactory, and if you have any questions or requests. She is always friendly, and talking to her fills you with positivity. I noticed that she manages to give attention to all the guests. It's clear that she loves her job very much! The rooms fully correspond to the description and photos presented on the hotel's website. We had a deluxe room with a pool view. The hotel mainly has standard rooms (24 square meters) and deluxe rooms (26 square meters), with 9% of them having a pool view. The room had beds, a wardrobe, a TV cleverly designed in a mirror (which I had never seen before), a free safe, a minibar (water, cola, Fanta, beer, juices) restocked daily, tea and amenities. Shampoo, shower gels, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc. are provided, although we bring our own. Slippers are also provided. The room had a shower cabin, an individual air conditioner, and a balcony. Everything was in good working order. The towels were changed daily, and the floor was made of laminate. The room was cleaned every day, and it was impeccably clean. No complaints whatsoever. There are two pools on the hotel premises. Last year, there were two slides, but they have been removed this year. There are plenty of sun loungers by the pool throughout the day. There is a bar by the pool where you can also get towels. They have a pizza area, and the pizza is amazing! The bar has a diverse drink menu, and they make excellent cocktails! The bartenders rotate, but they are all skilled and very friendly. The beach is a 5-minute walk away, or more accurately, to the pier. The hotel's beach is small and has sun loungers. You can also get towels at the beach and exchange them without any limitations. The highlight of the hotel is the magnificent pier! You have to see it with your own eyes to feel its charming and harmonious atmosphere. Everything is tastefully arranged. There are plenty of sun loungers. There is a large bar with

We stayed at the Blue Marlin Blue Spa & Resort 5* hotel in April-May 223. The hotel truly had its own unique concept. We had a great time at the hotel, with the music throughout adding to the atmosphere. The pier was a great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful views. The cocktails at the pool bar were fantastic and hit the spot. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a peaceful and enjoyable vacation. Thank you to the hotel team, you saved our trip as we had a few unpleasant experiences before arriving in Turkey.

Short about the main thing. We arrived at the hotel at around 9 o'clock. We were already prepared for a long wait, but we were checked in literally within 2 minutes. Reception gets 5 points. The rooms are very clean and modern. Housekeeping is done every day, and it's actual cleaning, not just smearing things around. Overall, the hotel is very clean. The service team gets a 5. The restaurant serves high-quality food, with no hints of yesterday's vegetables, hence no stomach problems for guests. Personally, I would have liked more seafood (but that's just a personal whim). The waitstaff work quickly, constantly offering drinks and clearing away dishes. The entire staff is neatly dressed and has a smile on their faces, it's very pleasant. The restaurant gets a 5- (for seafood). The territory is small, but everything is well-maintained and clean. There is a pathway with a flower arch and beautiful lanterns leading to the beach, about 2 meters long. To the right are lounge chairs with umbrellas, to the left is water sports, and in the middle, the pride of the hotel and the adornment of the coast - the hotel pier. The long, circular pier has bungalows, access to the sea, and showers. There is a bar with drinks and a bar with snacks. Periodically, waiters bring ice cream, cold disposable towels, and napkins for glasses! In the evenings, there is live music or disco. There is also an excellent nightclub near the hotel. So, you will find the relaxation you desire. The most important thing is to smile more, as it is an additional reward for the hotel staff. Have a great vacation, everyone. The hotel management and staff - you are doing a great job, I wish you success and prosperity for the hotel!

We had a fantastic vacation at this hotel. We were checked in quickly and everything was explained and shown to us. The room was clean, cozy, and modern. Housekeeping was done daily and the minibar was restocked every day. I must especially mention the wonderful hotel cuisine; the food was diverse, delicious, fresh, and catered to every taste. The bar had a wide selection of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, which were prepared beautifully and tasted amazing. I want to give a special shout-out to the two bartenders, Tolga and Gulshan, at the pier. They were fast, friendly, and made fantastic cocktails. In the evenings, there was live music at the pier, outdoor movies on Sundays, and even art classes. But my favorite was the drumming masterclass. I want to thank Tatiana and Yana, who organized all the entertainment programs. They were very kind, welcoming, and attentive. The pier itself is a separate wonder; it looks like you're on the Maldives. The ala carte dinner at the pier was excellent, with delicious food and a beautiful view of the sea. I want to give a special thanks to Yunus for the excellent service and attention. The atmosphere was always pleasant and calm, and in the evenings (after the live music), there was a great disco. Also, the Wi-Fi worked throughout the hotel and at the pier. The hotel grounds were well-maintained and clean. The entire hotel staff was polite and attentive, providing a high level of service. This hotel is perfect for a peaceful and relaxing vacation. I also want to thank Anna and Olga for their attentiveness and responsiveness. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone!

We arrived at the hotel in the evening and our rooms were ready. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. There was a safe, refrigerator, and tea station. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were too big. They had a pillow menu and I chose a foam pillow, which was very comfortable. The TV was located behind a mirror opposite the bed. In the bathroom, there was a hairdryer and a half glass shower cabin. The lighting was two-level, with soft light around the mirror and bright light from above. They provided shampoo, shower gel, hair conditioner, soap, and cotton swabs as toiletries. There were no "do not disturb" signs, but there were two buttons in the hallway: one for housekeeping and one for privacy. The housekeepers paid attention to these buttons (the icons lit up next to the room number) and when I pressed the privacy button, they immediately cleaned the room. The housekeeper who cleaned my room always greeted me on the floor. We are very grateful to Anna, who took care of our stay. She informed us about the hotel services, made a dinner reservation for us at the restaurant on the pier (included once every 7 days), and arranged our visit to the spa. She always asked us if everything was okay and how our stay was going. It was very pleasant to communicate with Olga at the reception. She always tried to help us with any questions we had. Overall, the reception staff were very friendly and customer-oriented. The food at the restaurant was of high quality and varied. Much respect to the chef! The daytime chef at the restaurant on the pier was positive, always smiling, and very friendly. You definitely won't go hungry here. The pool was beautiful, but we preferred the sea. Various workshops for adults and children were held in the middle of the day, but we didn't attend any. The pier was a great solution - it had a restaurant, a bar, sunbeds for sunbathing, and you could swim inside. In the evenings, there was live music. An excellent facility. The entrance to the sea had small pebbles, so having slippers would be useful. The hotel had a great location - across the road, there was a shopping center and small shops. Next to the hotel, there was a large shopping center called Neva. I highly recommend visiting the market on Wednesdays - they had a wide variety of goods and groceries. There was a bus stop near the hotel, where bus number 5 would take you to Alanya. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel. We had an excellent vacation.

I carefully and thoroughly chose the hotel to meet my expectations, especially considering that tour prices are expensive this year. I liked everything, from the entrance to the hotel to the beach. The infrastructure, food, beach, music, and spa area – everything was great! The only thing that I didn't like and found annoying was the lack of freely accessible water. To get my bottle of water, I had to wait in line for about 5-10 minutes. The bartenders didn't pay attention to you; they were busy with their own tasks, making cocktails or loading bottles into the fridge. Making cocktails took a long time, especially by the pool. I think if there was a separate fridge with water and ayran, the bartenders would be faster and friendlier. The absence of a coffee machine also surprised me; I had to stand in line again... I encountered this concept for the first time in Turkey and didn't understand the purpose.

We stayed at the hotel for a full 7 days - from June 3rd to June 6th. We checked in as soon as we arrived, around 1:30 pm on June 3rd. Despite the late check-in, we were offered a snack (which we declined, as we were very tired). The hotel has excellent staff, delicious and varied food, and an "Ultra all-inclusive" system that includes not only local alcohol but also foreign brands. The hotel is perfect for those who enjoy a peaceful vacation. There is beautiful music (without any loud beats), clear sea water, and adult-friendly activities such as morning yoga and functional training during the day. They also offer calm and relaxing workshops (for example, I attended a session where I painted a beach bag, which was very calming). The highlight of the hotel is the pier. You can find photos online, but it's difficult to convey the atmosphere in words - you have to experience it firsthand. Several times a week, there is live music on the pier in the evenings. It's a separate type of pleasure, for which we are extremely grateful to everyone involved. On Sundays, they set up a large screen with a projector and show movies. We usually don't like to return to the same place twice, but we are already planning to come back to this hotel for our next vacation.

Hello. We stayed at this hotel with our family in June 222. Check-in was immediate upon arrival, after breakfast, without waiting until 2 p.m. The hotel is small, compact, and cozy. It takes 3-5 minutes to walk to the sea, depending on how fast you walk. There is a pier at the sea, and most of the sun loungers are located there. However, there are also sun loungers on the sand, although there are not many of them, there is always enough space. The only issue is that occasionally there were people without bracelets on our beach, I understand that they weren't from our hotel. There is a guard nearby, but he doesn't react to them. There is a bar and cabanas (for $5 a day) on the pier. There is also a pathway to the sea and a shower nearby. The hotel rooms are either double or family rooms (two rooms). Everything is new and everything works. The pool is not big, there were always available spots until June 18, then evidently more people started coming and it was difficult to find a spot by the pool. There is a spa - a sauna, a Turkish bath, a sauna, a salt room, a pool with cold water, and a relaxation area - all for free. There is also a massage service available for an extra fee. We really liked it. You won't find waiters at the pool bar, the bar on the pier, or in the restaurant. They can take your order and disappear. You have to go to the bar yourself, place an order, and they say they will bring it to you, but they don't. This has been going on for a whole day. There are no words. Before allowing waiters and bartenders to work, they should have undergone training, but it seems they didn't even think about it. The food selection is not extensive, but you won't go hungry. There was no beef. There was fish every day, but it was not tasty at all. It was supposed to be trout, but it wasn't. There is entertainment, but it is unobtrusive, which we really liked. I want to separately mention the female administrators, or maybe they are called something else, I don't know, Anna (at the reception) and Tatiana. They always help in resolving all your issues! Thank you very much!
