First impressions of the apartment was excellent, very spacious with all the conveniences of home. The complex is large with numerous amenities for all the family, from swimming pools, Tennis and basketball courts plus a fine golf course. Entertainment is on most nights in the Amphitheater and there are additional Ala cart restaurants and bars to chose from . This is very much a self contained resort if you are happy to stay put . You can venture off complex via a shuttle bus service that runs to Kusadasi, the town nearest to the complex, this takes about half an hour, cost 18 TL PP, so if you self cater as we did on occasions has all you need to for fill those needs. All Inclusive is mainly whats catered for and there is a good variety of food on offer in the main restaurant sometimes this can be hit and miss depending on what time you eat, could be kept hotter. There are a few shops on the Complex including a Grocery store which is quite expensive There is also a Jewellery shop Called Anastasia as you enter the complex main entrance, a very comprehensive store with really nice staff that greet you, just ask for Fred who is one of the sales men he will help you and is not pushy like a lot of them in Turkey. All in all a really good Holiday once you have found out how to get about, we will visit this place again.

I visited for a week with my wife and six year old. The staff were helpful and friendly - especially if you tried to speak Turkish. The room was really comfortable and would have been great for self-catering. The pools were some of the cleanest I have seen on holiday and my child would happily have spent another week on the range of water slides. The evening events were quite fun and the animation team were a humorous bunch.
We all loved the food on offer but the buffet was a little bit chaotic and I felt sorry for the waiting staff who seemed to be a little overrun at times. Also the seats inside the restaurant were a difficult to clean material, whereas outside they were always clean. Actually getting food was never a problem and it was all delicious - I never had a chance to really thank the cooks.
I didn't get to play golf but the course had amazing views and looked in good condition. There were good views across local hills and there was a range of pools to choose from, with some really relaxing quiet pools tucked away around the resort.
I would happily go back because of the welcoming staff and the lovely food and room. Also my child loved the pools and water slides.
With a little more focus on cleaning the bars by the pools and replacing buffet chairs/employing a couple of extra waiters, this could be an outstanding hotel.

We are CLC members, this was our first visit out to Turkey as we'd only use the resorts in Spain previously. I'd been to Turkey with some friends before but my wife hadn't, we flew into Izmir via Istanbul and the hour or so shuttle ride wasn't too bad. We checked in with minimum of fuss as we'd paid for the all inclusive option we were looking to chuck our bags in and taste the local delicacies. I'll be honest we were a little disappointed with the first impressions of the food, we put it down to our tiredness after the trip and it being the late night menu. Anyway the accommodation was great and exactly what we expect from a CLC property, it suited us perfectly tbh lovely and secluded great pools lovely views and great weather. Only things that spoilt it were the bloody inflatables in the pool from people not respecting the rules! Anyway the breakfasts were good the lunches good and oaks bar staff and snacks awesome, tea time meals were hit and miss and to be fair for £25 a day the all inclusive option is well worth it. Special mention to the house keeping they kept our room lovely and clean thank you....
I stayed at this resort with 3 of my friends. We went for 1 week and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The food was good, there could of been more of a variety as one of my party was quite a fussy eater but other than that i couldn't fault this holiday. A number of pools to choose from so we had a change of scenery daily. Our apartment was clean and tidy at all times. Highly recommended.
