Holiday 2015 Long honest review

I visited this hotel for 10 nights with my daughter. I don't usually write reviews after being on holiday but feel I should as the reviews on here tend to be quite mixed. I feel for the price this hotel is well worth the money- you are not paying full 5 star price so you shouldn't expect as such. Hotel- I had booked for a villa apt which was the cheapest option but was very happy to have been upgraded to a room on the 9th floor! It had a kitchen, lounge area with bed, a bedroom with a huge kingsized bed and in the bathroom jacuzzi bath and even a washing machine! I left money on the side and never had any go missing so I think the maids are honest. They will change the towels daily if needed and bedding too. The sweeping wasn't that thorough but it was sufficient. Even though I was on the 9th floor, I could hear the music, entertainment going on near the pool area late at night, but I got used to it quickly and I ended up struggling to sleep when it was quiet! The villas around the hotel could be quite a walk from the hotel but from what I heard they were very spacious and clean. Food- I am a very fussy eater and always found something to eat at every mealtime- and in between!! Aswell as the general buffet in the main restaurant, there are meals available at the snack bar for approx 5 hours in an afternoon with burgers, chips, pasta, fish or pizza. There is also a lady making pancakes to order too so whoever moans they are just being petty. Yes ice cream is not served all day but is in an afternoon when they also offer cakes for free in the patisserie. They have a great selection in the on site shop for a small charge and I know many of us didn't mind paying. Entertainemt- they have lots to offer throughout the day and it's upto you if you choose to join in. I recommend the aqua gym that is on 2x day! In the evenings they have a mixture of professional shows and ones done by the entrainment team. (After the obligatory kids dances!!) These were very good on the whole. Pools- fab pools both near the main reception and the water park. I would say though I do think the lifeguards were a little irresponsible when I saw 5 big kids on a float made for 2 on the biggest and steepest slide!! Staff- on the whole most of the staff were very nice, polite and helpful. I only came across maybe 4 who worked the bars who were rude and ignorant. They did tend to serve the other nationalities before us Brits but thinking about it, that's maybe due to us being so patient and many of the Russians, Germans being very pushy and rude! As usual in Turkey, the measures are huge so be warned. I saw a few drunk people being escorted to their rooms! Transfers- as every person has said,the hotel is a way from Antalya airport but if you book a speedy shuttle it shouldn't be longer than 3 hours at the most. I feel it's well worth it. The hotel offers a free bus to the beach,(approx 5 minutes) which isn't the best but worth a visit. They have buffet food and drinks included in the all inclusive. There is an area just to the right of the main bit but that is for the owners of the villas and the food there is not included! You can buy icecreams here though. There is also a bus into Alanya(approx 15 minutes) for a Euro each way- worth going to have a look at the shops or to get some day trips as I did. Recommend the boat trip and jeep safari. They do allow smoking in most areas of the hotel which I disagree with. Yes I am anon smoker but can't tell you how many parents I saw smoking over their children!! Disgusting. There should be designated areas where it is allowed only- surely people know the risks of second hand smoke. This is something that should be changed immediately! My daughter and I had a great time here and would revisit for the right price. Yes it is a little isolated but I think it has enough onsite to warrant it. A holiday is what you make it too- Give it a go and enjoy. Ps- I would have given 4.5 stars but couldn't so opted for 4!

A family holiday turned in to a disappointment!

Staff are so rude.. They do not have any time to help you if you ask for it or don't understand what you are saying as barely speak any English. I advise you not to stay in the villas as we got put in one miles away from the main complex.. They say shuttle buses are on hand but they never turn up, the power in the villa also kept going off when trying to get ready each night so in the end we kept fixing ourselfs as staff were not willing to come out and help. We complained and they finally moved us in to the hotel 3 days later.. Are holiday then became more of a holiday and we did end up having a lovely time. The water park is ace.. So good for kids!

Myself and my partner stayed at Gold city for 10 nights with our friends and had a great time. The resort is far from the main airport, but, do what we did and use suntransfers.com for a cheap and speedy private transfer (will cut the transfer time by half). The hotel itself is very clean and has loads to do; there's water slides, pool, a spa and your never an hour away of some food as they offer outdoor snacks and ice cream (downstairs) inbetween meals. The staff's English isnt great but they're not rude at all and try their hardest to help you! If you do have any major problems just ask to speak with the manager, who is really helpful and fluent in English. Overall I'd definitely go back as its a beautiful part of Turkey to visit and you can take advantage of the bus from right outside the hotel to visit Alanya and the beach :)

Upon arrival after a four hour transfer from Antayla airport, we arrived at Goldcity. The hotel itself is largely remote, and cut off from nearby towns. During our stay, we experienced persistent power-cuts as well as loud music during unsociable hours. Another issue were the cleaners whose sticky fingers will take any money which is left on the side as her own. When money was taken, on the one occasion, the bed was made and was presented with towels in swan-like shapes. The accommodation overall was good however, we only had a working safe for belongings for 2/7 days! The next issue is the food. We decided that all-inclusive would be a good idea as we then did not have to worry about spending money in restaurants out of the hotel complex. However, this was not a good idea as much of the food was sub-standard and became repetitive. Great if you like eating chips everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The service provided by staff was non-existent unless you physically grabbed them and even then, you were hard-pressed to find an English speaking waiter/waitress. It was self-service when it came to laying the table for any course. You always source the cutlery yourself. Other restaurants are available in the complex, but has to be booked in advance and can only be visited 1/5 days. Stuck with buffet food! A la carte has a lovely view but is flawed by the service from staff having waited 45 minutes for the starter. Not worth it! When complaining to staff they seem not bothered and just let it slip. The facilities at the hotel were ok. However was fooled into thinking that activities including tennis were free of charge being all-inclusive but yet were charged 12EUR. After a 20 minute walk to the 'sport complex' it was very remote and was completely deserted. No-one around to look after the dilapidating facilities. Not worth the time nor money. We decided to treat ourself to the Turkish bath and this was extremely good. However was conned into a massage from both having a 'bad back'! Another annoying thing was the availability of sun-loungers by the pool as if you would like one, towels would have to be placed before 7:00am. The entertainment was very poor, and was aimed towards young children. Whilst laying around the poolside, the entertainers would be shouting, and invade privacy (lifting up sunbeds, prodding with inflatables). Entertainers would run through restaurant areas encouraging children to join in.. Very annoying and un-needed. Overall, we would not visit or recommend this complex.
