We found our week long stay here very pleasant and it was a lovely relaxing break. The hotel which is shaped like a cruise ship (hmmmm), has large, well maintained grounds which were nice to walk around. The lobby is very extravagant and looks ever so fancy! Rooms were fine. The hotel pools were huge and clean. The beach was yellow, clean sand and the sea was lovely. There were free pedalos too. You could fill most of the day from about 10am – 4pm with activities if you wanted (ie archery, table tennis, football etc), as the hotel had organised sessions on throughout the day. There are also tennis and basketball courts, so loads to do if you wanted to try burn off some of the mountains of food, or (our favourite activity) you could just alternate sitting by the beach (and eating & drinking) with sitting by the pool (and eating and drinking). There's also a hairdresser and the Boy got an amusing haircut that was labelled the "Turkish prison buzz cut" by one of our friends-so careful if you don’t want too much hair shaved off! In terms of access to Ephesus it is excellent. The drive only took 20 minutes or so and I know a lot of people visit Ephesus from hotels hours and hours away. The trip was organised through the hotel, which we don't normally do as it's usually a chance for the hotel to triple the price of the trip, but it seemed a reasonable price and the tour guide was very informed and spoke great English. Mealtimes weren't exactly relaxing as you did have the sense of feeling like herded cattle and that someone would shout mooooo! 2 weeks of the food would probably be a bit much and the hotel isn't near any other restaurants/hotels. You could go to the non buffet restaurants a couple of times but you had to book by queuing for an hour every day at 9am. It was a nice change to eat out of the buffet restaurant though and I managed to persuade the Boy to queue for me! There was food available pretty much constantly throughout the day and the pancakes (made fresh) were particularly nice. The alcohol was a bit of a gamble. We just stuck with lager and lemonade but if you're brave you could try stomach gin, vodka or wine! I didn't really think much of Kusadasi, although had heard very positive things from others. Overall I think how much you enjoy it here depends how much you paid. It's not amazing but good facilities, food acceptable so all inclusive is good value and if you just want to chill for a week (and visit Ephesus) then it's great.
