Last year, Wi-Fi was available everywhere, on the beach and in the hotel room. Transportation accessibility is good, it takes 20 minutes to walk to the waterfall, 20 minutes by bus to Terracity, and 40 minutes to Mark Antalya. There are also many shops nearby like A101, Bim, Migros. The food at the hotel is normal. There were no queues for food, we went in May.

avatar

Hello! Can you please tell me about the cold currents from the waterfalls mentioned in the reviews, and that the sea is significantly colder. I am interested in early June.

avatar

Hello, we were at the end of May, the water was normal, there were currents at one point on the beach, I moved half a meter away and that was it.

We were in early August 2023. There are no such passions as they write about. People were just going to Sera, thinking at least it was going to be in Dobedan or Voyage. It is necessary to understand that 5* hotels also differ from each other. We stayed in the furthest building. We needed peace and privacy. I won't say anything about the evening entertainment. The daytime sports activities were great, with lots of options. The food was decent, and there was a nice gym (my daughter is an athlete and we were looking for a good gym). The champagne was good, but I didn't try other drinks. The territory was clean, and the pools were nice. We couldn't hear the planes, but the beach was just ok. We went to the shops, it was quick to get there. We also visited the market near the hotel. The rooms were cleaned well. The only downside is that there is nowhere to walk near the hotel, you have to go to the waterfalls, and to walking places it's about an hour's walk. The Wi-Fi worked everywhere.

avatar

We liked walking around the hotel as well. It's well-designed, not just a boring field. I swam in the sea, sat by the pool, and hung out in the shade. I even petted some cats. In the heat, you can relax in the shade near the "club" so you don't have to stay in the room under the air conditioner.

avatar

Agreed! The area is beautiful and well-maintained. I would also say that it deserves a 5-star rating of this level.

Actually terrible hotel. Wi-Fi only in the lobby. In the evenings, it's jam-packed. Groups of people sitting, drinking. Each has its own noisy fun. Drunk people sleeping under the piano. Small bar. One line for alcohol and coffee. You can stand in line for twenty minutes. Its only advantage over the hotels in Lara is that it's already in the city, not in the outskirts.

avatar

Hooray, we have a new addition to our group 🙈🙈🙈 Really, 100% I definitely wouldn't pay such money for it and wouldn't go for free.... some gypsy stuff. The whole concept is a nightmare. Considering that we lived in the main building in a 2-bedroom room with a huge rooftop terrace. I don't understand who is vacationing there and what they are enjoying.... we had grandmothers fighting over cookies for five o'clock tea.

avatar

What year is it? Last year, there was WiFi on the beach and in the hotel as well. The line at the bar was small, but you could also order from the waiter and they would bring everything to your table. The battle for cookies 😂 seemed to have been quite intense – apparently those were the kind of vacationers there. The cookies, like everywhere else 🍪, were very average. But the baklava with ice cream in the shade on a hot day with tea or coffee - is my respect. And really, it's not worth comparing hotels with a price tag of 500+ for three people and 300.

avatar

last year, from March 1st to March 8th

When was this? Friends returned yesterday, the internet catches absolutely everywhere, on the beach, in the room, throughout the hotel area.

Well, I guess it's finally over.

Well, don't mislead people, in a few years, some things may change.

We returned from the hotel on February 26th. We really liked everything! Check-in was very quick, they didn't make us wait until 2:00 PM and checked us in at 9 in the morning, into a room with a magnificent view of the sea. The hotel itself is like a fairy tale, but it will appeal to those who love gold and glamour. The territory is quite large, with turtles running around on the lawns - my son was delighted. As for the food, there were no delicacies like caviar, crabs, lobsters, and so on. But there was red fish every day, and we ate our fill! Fried mussels were also served frequently, as well as grilled chicken and lamb. There were also some local dishes that were unclear. For breakfast, there was honey from the comb, various cheeses, and magical yogurts and pastries. They made omelets with a mix of ingredients in front of us every morning, as well as flatbreads with spinach, cheese, and potatoes - also very tasty. There was live music during lunch, with either a DJ, violinist, or guitarists performing during dinner. Next to the pool, there was a café serving pizza or flatbreads until 4 PM, and then a coffee shop with delicious treats. I don't drink alcohol in its pure form, but the cocktails were very delicious and nicely decorated, which I found pleasant. Regarding cleaning, they didn't bother us, just asked us if we needed anything delivered or garbage to be taken out. They didn't have time to get dirty. We were satisfied. Would I like to come back there during the season? Most likely not. I liked the fact that there were very few people around and everything was quiet. We could relax in any of the gazebos, which are usually paid during the season, for free, as there was plenty of space everywhere. It won't be the same during the season. Would I recommend it? Yes, but only in the winter season. To stroll, shop, and relax overall. I forgot to mention that we specifically booked separate beds because my son is 11 years old, as you can see in the photos. Of course, there are rooms with double beds as well as extra space for a child if needed.

avatar

Thank you so much for such a detailed review. I was hesitant about going there, but now I will definitely go. What room number did you have?

avatar

Room 1707 was given to us, which was even more appealing from the very beginning, as it is my son's birthday 😁 he was born on July 17))) The view of the sea, a large balcony, and by the way, we didn't hear any airplanes from this side at all. We slept like logs, even though we don't drink much 😂

You were lucky with the weather, did you go swimming? Has anyone traveled with four people, 2 adults and 2 kids, how do they assign the room? I'm afraid of getting stuck. We booked an Elegance room, so I'm wondering if we'll fit there in terms of sleeping.

avatar

Hello, it's still cold to swim. Although there were some desperate ones)))) The water is around 18-19 degrees, I feel cold 😂As for the "standard" room, I can't say for sure, I've only seen a maximum of three separate beds or one queen bed and a camp bed.

We stayed at this hotel in 2019, at the end of April beginning of May. We liked everything. Despite the fact that part of the territory was under reconstruction, the animation, food, and staff were all wonderful. We don't smoke, so we didn't really notice any cigarette smells in the public areas.

avatar

In July 2023 we stayed there, everything was great, both in terms of prices and quality, a solid 5. Anyone can find advantages and disadvantages in any hotel, but here the price and quality really deserve a 5. We were satisfied and would happily return again, but this year we are going to Side, I miss it. By the way, the drinks, cocktails, champagne, beer, everything is great. Those who are looking for faults everywhere won't find them here.

avatar

We were in Sere in 2022, it's not that bad there (we stayed in hotels that were both worse and better, although we try to keep a similar level). There are pros and cons to it. If you prefer a purely urban hotel, then it's perfect. But this year we will go to a different hotel.

avatar

We rested in October 2023. We really liked it, the entertainment and evening discos were top notch. The food was also good. There is one big downside, airplanes landing over the hotel are noisy... but we were so tired from all the good impressions during the day that we slept like logs and didn't hear any noise).

avatar

Everything was great at the hotel in January and February cleanliness, order, the staff works at 100%, everyone speaks Russian !!! And there is a private beach with sand !!! The atmosphere is excellent !!! Price quality 👍

Overall, the hotel is decent. In the photo, I am providing the bus schedule for those who need routes from the Sera hotel to the main attractions and shopping center 😉

avatar

We flew to Sochi from November 12th to 19th, booked ourselves for 6 nights from Minvody, without transfer, and took one suitcase for the two of us. The cost was promised to be 110,000 for both. We were in Sochi in the summer of 2018 and 2019, and now the price was the most affordable, so we had to consider Sochi again. Everything was good, but the cold spa pool and the unheated outdoor pools with the cool sea were not very pleasant. The food, atmosphere, and service were all satisfactory.

avatar

We have been to many places in Antalya. This time, we chose Sera. I must say, I am not a fan of vacationing in the same places, but I would come back here. The food is the same everywhere, and the drinks, according to my husband, are also the same. The territory is beautiful and well-maintained. The cleanliness is rated 4 out of 5. Everything you need is within walking distance, or you can take a bus and be in the city center or shopping center. I don't know why, but it got me in a good mood. The price for 7 nights in July for two people is 127,000 rubles.

avatar

There are few children in the hotel. There are plenty of free places on the beach. There is always somewhere to be alone. The entrance to the sea is beautiful. We are satisfied with the rest. We have been resting for 10 days in November. There are no cockroaches at all. The rooms are cleaned well. Luxurious rooms. The territory, the access to the sea - is beyond praise. Gorgeous. The food is delicious. But without frills. We are very satisfied.

avatar

We are currently staying at a hotel. Airplanes fly along different corridors every day. For two consecutive days, they flew directly above the hotel building. We are staying on the fifth floor. It feels like an airplane is about to fly into our room through the balcony door.

avatar

I'm currently staying at this hotel. Overall, everything is great. The sea is warm, not hot, but warm. Right now, it's probably fully booked, but everything is fine. There are plenty of sun loungers, so you can always find one, even if not right by the water. The access to the sea is good. The pebbles are fine, tolerable. There is enough space in the restaurants and on the beaches. The restaurant in the evening is outside, which is really cool, and it's designed with different levels, so it doesn't feel crowded like a canteen. The food is diverse, you can choose. There is no special "wow" effect, but it's quite tasty. There is fish, various types of meat, squid with a side dish. Fresh large cherries 🍒, watermelons 🍉, prunes and plums. And at the pool bar, they serve Ayran, which is not often seen - highly recommended.

avatar

The rooms are great in my opinion. We are in an elegant place, although it would be better to have a view of the waterfall. It's not worth chasing after a high floor, as sometimes planes pass by quite low 😄. We are on the 4th floor, and everything is fine. The minibar is non-alcoholic and gets replenished every day. But in reality, there's only cola and Fanta there. The rest can be easily obtained elsewhere. The safe is free and working. Wi-Fi is available throughout the area for free. I even caught a signal on the waterfront. I can't say much about the speed because I didn't heavily use it. We really like it here. The only downside is the alcohol. It's local, with all that entails. Not disgusting, but it's just average. Cocktails are also made from it. The wine is not the best either, but if you choose carefully, you can find something a little better. However, if you want something tasty, it's better to buy it at the duty-free and enjoy your vacation. That's what we did. The local draft beer is light and normal. It's perfect for hot weather.

avatar

Is there something to do around here? Where can we go out?

avatar

I've been here for a few days honestly. It's not boring at all. Especially when it comes to food and entertainment. It depends on what you're looking for. You can take a walk to the waterfall. It's about 30 minutes away. It's cool to hang out there. You can also walk along Lara Beach. There's a bus stop nearby, so you can go anywhere by bus. Whether it's to the old city or somewhere else. You can even go shopping. There are several shops and pharmacies nearby. By the way, I don't know why, maybe it's because of the streams or the constantly flowing water, but the water at the hotel beach is a couple of degrees cooler. It's warmer on the pier. And if you're not particularly attached to sun loungers, you can walk further along the beach to the free area and lie on a towel. The water there is really warmer, especially in the evening. There's even some sand in some places.

Can you please advise, do people wear bracelets? I don't want a bracelet, my tan is uneven. 🤪

avatar

Put it on. Can you please make it a bit looser so I can move about 5 centimeters comfortably?

I tell hotels that I have an allergy and they attach a bracelet to the removable strap of my bag. I then transfer this strap to different bags - beach or regular ones.

In short, I would recommend this hotel. The beach is clean. Even when there were a lot of people, there were enough sunbeds for two.

We liked the hotel. It is beautiful, large, and has wifi everywhere. The staff is friendly and understands Russian. There was entertainment every evening, both for children and adults. The food was good overall, and the sea is clean. P.S. If there is a chance, I will come back here again, because I didn't try all the cocktails 😂

avatar

Can you please tell me if there are water parachutes available at the hotel beach or if I need to go somewhere else for public ones?

avatar

There were no parachutes, they saw people riding on a banana, but it was definitely not from the hotel. There were no such entertainments.

avatar

And are there any beaches that are not in hotels at all?

avatar

I haven't seen.

We stayed at this hotel in September 2022 with our children. The hotel suited everyone. The food was to everyone's taste. Even my super picky kids found something to eat. Alcoholic beverages, such as wine and something else, are available in a-la-carte style and can be both paid and free. The staff is excellent, everyone is nice. They love children there. We are going there again in August, but of course the price is outrageous.

avatar

I noticed the proximity of the airport. Are airplanes flying right above your head during landing?

avatar

Well, yeah, that's true. They don't really settle down at night and don't disturb your sleep, at least.

Hello. Is there anywhere to walk around the hotel? Are there small shops, like markets, where I can buy tea, sweets, local Dalan cosmetics, and so on?

avatar

Yes, there is a pharmacy around the corner from the hotel, it's very good. Migros mini-market is there too, they have groceries and sweets, and across the street there are some local shops. The buses are opposite the hotel, it takes 15 minutes to get to the large shopping center called Terracity.

Thank you 😁

We were here in 2020, right after Turkey opened during the pandemic. The hotel is incomparable, the service is top-notch, and the rooms are excellent - the view of the waterfalls alone is worth it. The food, alcohol, beach, and pools - there is something for every taste. P.S. You won't understand until you experience this hotel yourself. P.S.S. - We travel a lot: Turkey, Egypt, China, Thailand, Tunisia, etc. We have never seen such a heartfelt hotel.

avatar

We stayed here a couple of years ago. It was a dreadful hotel. The lobby and the room smelled of cigarettes. The alcohol served in the lobby and everywhere else was terrible. The food was awful too. The clientele was not great either. On the positive side, we had a 2-room suite with access to a huge terrace with cacti. There was a promenade along Lara beach with barbecue areas. The local alcohol was horrible. We regretted spending our money here. We made an effort to go to the center of Antalya. We also went to Duden Waterfalls.

avatar

I accidentally ended up there (((I didn't fully understand the hotel. My friend insisted.... I am comparing it to the places we usually fly to. Everything is bad here. I hardly ate there. Just a few vegetables. Dinners outside in the darkness. Cold dishes. Not tasty! Not appetizing! Not aesthetically pleasing presentation of the dishes.

avatar

We were there 7 years ago, and we completely agree with your review about the awful hotel. The rooms were also damp, and we had to soak our clothes in strongly scented detergents before washing them.

We were at this hotel in April. The beach is large and sandy. The sea entrance is good. The hotel has a big and beautiful territory. There is a promenade nearby with small cafes. If you walk towards the city, there are small shops. There is a Migros nearby. Duden Park with a waterfall is about an hour's walk away. Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel and the signal is good and stable. There were some reviews about bedbugs, but we didn't notice any bedbugs ourselves.

avatar

What kind of food is available? And are the beach canopies closer to the shore paid, and what is the price for them, if you know?

avatar

The food is diverse. There is a large selection: meat, fish. Various snacks. There are steamed vegetables. Yes, the gazebos are chargeable. But I don't know the price.

Opinion is purely personal)) Pros: - First line - Can reach any point in the city by bus - Clean and comfortable - Friendly staff, everyone smiles, instant cleaning - Liked the food, everything is tasty, lots of desserts (perfect for those who love sweets) Cons: - Animation (possibly not exactly as desired, but overall a 4) - Absence of water slides for children

avatar

We stayed at this hotel. Everything was great, the food was amazing. The animation is lacking though.

Located on the first line.

Is everything ultra 24/7?

Ultra, but the bar closes at 2.

Unexpectedly, after a year, we returned to Sera. Due to the significant increase in tour prices, we decided to go to a trusted hotel where we had a successful vacation. Although there were downsides (but how can you avoid them). You can find my previous review. And we didn't regret it at all, the vacation was a complete success. As our travel agent said, this is the hotel people come back to. Truly, there are many tourists who visit more than once. So, I won't write much, everything has already been said. I will describe the aspects that stand out: - Close to the airport. - Friendly staff and a warm atmosphere. - Great entertainment. - Excellent evening shows. - Quality drinks. This year, we discovered Italian restaurant lunches, and we liked them. We also tried the sushi restaurant, and it was good. Wi-Fi worked throughout the area, which was pleasing. The only thing that hasn't changed is the cleanliness of the beach. It's a bit dirty. Some people litter, while others don't want to clean up. And the animals roaming the beach do their business right there... But overall, everything is wonderful.

avatar

I liked the hotel so much last year that, despite not liking repetitions, I made an exception for Sera. The palace luxury of the hotel allows for not only practical enjoyment but also aesthetic enjoyment of its beauty. This time, we decided to book a room in Sera Club, with rooms featuring beautiful green walls and mirrors. The room was of exquisite beauty, like a snuffbox. The only drawback we found was that it was very small and quite worn-out, probably due to the size of the room, causing significant deterioration of the space. Unfortunately, there were no rooms with carpeted floors. The room had a sea view - a magnificent sight! And we slept soundly at night - silence! No barking dogs, no morning prayers, no noise from passing planes. Everything was as I wanted it. But! Our room started falling apart right before our eyes. First, water leaked from under the sink. When a substantial puddle had formed, we got worried and called the reception. Even before this incident, I had requested cleaning - the room had clearly not been cleaned. There were no bathrobes and a few other minor things were missing. Men came to clean, for some reason, but we didn't wait for them to finish - we quickly took our things and went to the sea. When we returned, we found smoke spreading - there were even more men in the room and the power socket where the room card is inserted had fallen out, causing the lights to go out. I touched the socket and the lights came back on, but I didn't have the necessary tools to put it back in place. Since the puddle on the floor had grown, I decided it was better to leave - what if it caused a short circuit? So we went to have lunch. When we returned, the same men were still there. They cleaned up the puddle and the socket stopped falling out, but I was left with a doorknob in my hands. After spinning it in my hands a bit, I keenly felt the lack of tools. I handed it to the men and decided to use the safe. It didn't work. A boy was called to fix it and brought a different safe with him. A radical solution! I thought. But not the worst. I asked for bathrobes - they brought one too big and one in tatters. I asked for a kettle in the room - they brought a kettle with burnt milk at the bottom. Someone evidently had been boiling milk for a child. In the end, everything was finally sorted out and the men left our room. Then it turned out that the room was hot and the air conditioning wasn't working properly. Well... the reception, tired of us, said they didn't know how to help with that. So we just turned off the air conditioning and finally went to sleep. My agent was horrified by my stories and demanded that we change rooms. But we didn't want to. We had just fixed everything and made changes - why change rooms? Unfortunately, we did have to change the room in the end. On the fourth day, we were attacked by bedbugs. Although they offered to exterminate the bugs and let us stay, I decided that the chemical poison might not be well tolerated by my asthma. So we were given a room in the Elegance building. where we stayed last year. It also had a sea view, twice the size, and carpeted floors. But it was noisy! Dogs barked, planes flew, and in the morning, we were awakened by prayers. All questions, tasks, and problems in the hotel are resolved by Guest Relations. ALL!! They resolve everything brilliantly, quickly, and to the very end! A special thanks to a beautiful blonde with blue eyes, Irina. She not only connected my laptop to the internet instantly but also fixed it without much trouble. Seeing how attached I was to my laptop in the hotel lobby, she thoughtfully brought me a mousepad. But the reception boys for Guest Relations were just hopeless! They couldn't answer any questions - they just stared blankly. Overall, the girls were great, and we are very grateful to them! Especially Irina. In my review last year, I wrote that the staff was pleasant and responsive, and they have remained the same, except for some waiters. The cats were all in their places, but the tortoise escaped from the territory in front of us - I don't know why, but we decided that it wouldn't have much chance of survival on the road, so we caught it and returned it to the hotel. There were no dogs on the premises - they all moved to the beach and only came to visit. We happened to be there during Halloween and had a great time. Then winter concept started at the hotel, and all subsequent karaoke and disco nights were held inside the Sera Club and Elegance buildings. We had never come so late in autumn before - usually in mid-October and until early November - but this time we arrived at the end of October and stayed until mid-November. I didn't think we would still be able to swim in warm water and sunbathe, so I didn't book many days - just for one. But it was so good and soulful that we extended our stay twice and ended up staying for 18 nights. We didn't want to leave at all. Since it was warm, summer-like, we missed having snacks on the premises and the pool bar with a waterfall was also closed. The floorings were removed, and we missed that too. In conclusion, it was a successful vacation!

We were on vacation as a group of three from January 26th, 2023 to November 5th, 2023. We had dreamed of celebrating our wedding anniversary at an à la carte restaurant with our friends. We believed the media reports about the extension of the tourist season until November 223. We paid 125,000 rubles per person for 1 day, including a flight from St. Petersburg to a standard double room with an extra bed. Our disappointment was immense when we arrived and were "delighted" to find out at check-in that the hotel would switch to its winter concept starting from October 26th. 9% of the hotel's services were no longer available. All 6 à la carte restaurants closed, except for one called "Bistro Royale," which conveniently did not operate on the day of our anniversary. We had to arrange a special anniversary dinner one day before our actual anniversary. The poolside restaurants and the "Garden" restaurant also closed. Only the main restaurant in the main building remained, where it was crowded, and we often struggled to find seats. Nonetheless, we are incredibly grateful to the restaurant manager and our waitress, Irem, who did their best to quickly resolve our dining issues. The tea and coffee cafe and the lounge bar also closed. On the day of our anniversary, they couldn't even provide us with a complimentary gesture in our room, and instead brought us a plate of fruits (which were already available at the buffet) the next day. In short, our celebration turned out to be a complete failure! We contacted Pegas Touristik and asked why they didn't inform us about the closure of hotel services when we purchased our package; we would have chosen a different hotel. We bought the package just five days before the trip! They had no information about the closure of hotel services. To this day, the official hotel website and social media pages make no mention of it! We reached out to the administration, and credit must be given to them for partially mitigating our disappointment by upgrading us to a family two-bedroom room without extra charges instead of the standard double room. One by one, the pools, water park, and poolside bars closed. Ice cream disappeared but reappeared in three different flavors after five days (perhaps due to someone's dissatisfaction). By the time we left, only the red pool, main pool, indoor pool in the spa, and the main sandy beach were open. The other beaches stopped being cleaned, and the lounge chairs were removed. The pier and the access to the sea from the pier were dismantled. However, we didn't let ourselves be discouraged and still had a great time overall. The hotel is good. All the previous reviews are genuine and true. Despite the overpayment for missing services, I recommend the hotel.

We stayed at the hotel for the second time. This time we chose the Park building, the rooms were small but had everything we needed. As for the restaurants and bars, everything was excellent. If you plan on dining à la carte, I recommend the Mexican restaurant, but the Japanese restaurant didn't impress me. The animation team, Mario and James, were super positive. The beach was magnificent, and the resort had a beautiful and large territory. We were afraid that when we returned, something might not live up to our expectations compared to our first visit, but no, we want to come back again. I will mention a few downsides this time, although they were not critical. The Wi-Fi was very poor, almost never working, although many other guests said theirs was working fine. There were a lot of flies on the beach, and they were quite annoying bites. We received a letter from the hotel's guest relations in advance, stating that as regular guests, we were entitled to a complimentary item. However, when we presented this letter at the guest relations desk, they were unaware of it. After some assistance from their colleagues, they told us to expect a complimentary item in our room and some hotel souvenirs, which were not delivered until we approached them for a second time. The hotel has many repeat guests who come back again and again. I believe this speaks for itself.

The hotel is conveniently located near the airport. It takes 25 minutes to get there if you travel on your own. You can still book the hotel through the international website that everyone used before, and payment can be made on-site in the local currency. Check-in is fast, and the staff at the reception is friendly, they fulfill any requests very quickly. The hotel area is not large, but it is very interesting, and despite being a city hotel, there is no feeling of being in a city. There are small paths, lots of greenery, and a pier. Everything has been compactly arranged in a small space. There are many cats and turtles. There are 3 pools, one of which has seawater, the red one has cool water, and the main pool is warmer than the rest. The pools themselves are not big, and there are plenty of free sunbeds around them. The beach has small pebbles and sand. The wooden walkways are in need of replacement. There are not many beach umbrellas, only one common shelter, which is not very conveniently located. The mattresses on the sunbeds are soft but not very clean, as they are not washed or cleaned. You can have breakfast in the main dining area or by the pool (the selection is not as big as in the main dining area). Lunch can be had in the main dining area, by the pool, or according to the menu in the Italian à la carte restaurant. Dinner is only available at one place, outside. There is a variety of meats, mostly chicken dishes, but there is also beef and lamb. Fish is available for both lunch and dinner, grilled or fried (salmon, sea bream, bass). The quality of the cooked dishes is not bad, but many are too spicy, although this detail is not mentioned. The yogurts are very tasty, but the porridge is disgusting. There are several types of eggs for breakfast. The pastries are very delicious, and there is plenty of fruit and greens. There are many bars, and they all work for different periods of time, but when it comes to the ultra concept, there is none, as no bar is open until morning. The pier is rented out on weekends for weddings, and the entertainment matches the occasion. There are no imported drinks, although they might be available somewhere and someone might have seen them, but I haven't. The cocktails are not bad, and the beer and wine are tasty. Of the à la carte restaurants, I only visited the Italian one, and I can recommend it. The lamb was cooked perfectly, but the shrimp was not. If you are traveling alone, you will be offered to have dinner with strangers – something I encountered for the first time. They simply directed me to any available table. The organization lacks finesse. The interior of the hotel is quite original, as can be seen from the photos, and the feeling of "gypsy baroque" is even stronger inside. The rooms in the main building are in the same style, while the rooms in the Club building resemble little treasure boxes and are original, suitable for one person. The rooms are cleaned daily, but since the main building has carpeted floors, the quality of cleaning is not entirely clear. However, the towels were changed, and the shampoos and gels were replenished daily. The mini bar in the room (juice, Fanta, cola, mineral water, and regular water) is refilled daily. Before visiting the hotel, I wrote a letter to Guest Relations, and they promised to bring fruits to the room, but they never did. Overall, the communication with the staff is unclear. They cannot make a reservation at the à la carte restaurant right away, but at least they call and warn that they mixed up the date and reschedule it. Close to the hotel area, there is a Migros supermarket where you can still change foreign currency by making a purchase, and you will receive change in Turkish lira. I recommend TerraCity among the shopping centers, it is about 25-30 minutes away (2 lira/1 dollar one way) and not in the places offered by persistent people on the beach. There is a pharmacy and a few small shops near the hotel.

Beautiful hotel, incredible atmosphere, plenty of locations for photo shoots, a large area for leisurely strolls, delicious cocktails both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, and all of them, almost all the bartenders, make them with care and a special touch. A wide variety of food, with many à la carte restaurants, and you can visit each of them once. Close to the airport, which is important. Gorgeous views from the rooms, and one unique aspect, although some may consider it a downside, is that the airplanes fly very close and low, which is impressive! Another highlight of the hotel is, of course, the turtles, of which there are many, from small to large. You cannot pass by them without stopping, whether you're an adult or a child. There are many pools, both with saltwater and freshwater, and the loungers are all comfortable with soft cushions, whether by the sea or by the pool. Close to a bus stop, for those who enjoy using public transportation. Fast internet, nightly animation and entertainment, which are varied and interesting. One small downside, perhaps beyond the hotel's control, is that Fun Sun guides are not there to assist tourists, but rather for their own personal gain from tourists.

-Aeroflot flight, regular schedule, departure at 7am, we bought the tickets ourselves, and the hotel was booked through an agency. It's a 15-minute taxi ride to the hotel. We were checked in immediately. -We chose the Park building, everything was clean and tidy, no carpets, minimalism in everything, no decorations, just as we wanted.

The whole family rested this year. Very beautiful territory, cozy rooms, and incredibly polite staff! The territory is small, but it only leaves positive emotions. Good cuisine and a wide selection of drinks. The pool with seawater is just great! Within walking distance from the hotel is the promenade if you want to take a walk along the sea. On the hotel grounds is a form with autographs from FC Galatasaray - football fans will love it. Last year we stayed in the Club building - the interior of the room is decorated very uniquely, but the impressions left were extremely positive. I have never really written reviews and I think I have rambled a lot. Nevertheless, if you are going to Club Hotel Sera for the first time, I am sure you will love it!

We are vacationing with friends at this hotel for the second time. We have seen many people from last year, which means that since people come more than once, it speaks to the good quality of the vacation. The Club Hotel Sera is good, but in this review, I want to write about some negatives so that tourists are aware, and if hotel staff read this, they can try to make some changes, even though the hotel is already fully booked. These negative aspects will not lower my rating as the good aspects of Sera outweigh the shortcomings, but I will still mention them. 1. Dogs on the beach and dogs barking at night do not allow for a comfortable sleep. There shouldn't be any dogs on the beach at all, but this is the reality and it bothers me, even though the dogs haven't done anything bad to me personally and many of them are adorable. However, when you see them on the towels lying under your sunbeds, peeing everywhere, I believe that it is not right. 2. Low-flying planes often disrupt sleep. Again, I'm used to it because I live near an airport, but other people are not satisfied. This issue should be taken into account. 3. There are often no available sunbeds on the beach. Yes, they become available around 12 o'clock, but at 9 or 1 in the morning, there is often a shortage of spots. 4. This year, there are a lot of annoying and biting flies on the beach. You want to relax and lie down, but they bite and bother you in large numbers. 5. From 12 a.m. to 1 a.m., there is a night soup available. This is good, but besides the soup and bread, there is nothing else. Usually, other hotels provide cheese, sausages, tomatoes, but here you can't even have a cup of tea, only soup and that's it. These are the negatives that bother me. However, everything else is great. We were checked in early, the food is good, the sea is clean, the water is warm in the sea and hot in the rooms, the room was cleaned and towels were changed, the bar was restocked, there are several Russian TV channels, internet is available throughout the hotel and even on the beach, the evening shows are wonderful, everyone dances, the bartenders and waiters try very hard. The shower in the room broke, but it was fixed immediately without any issues. I recommend visiting the a la carte restaurants, they have a unique ambiance and the food is delicious. I can confirm all the good things that people write and I just don't want to repeat them. The staff, guests, and performers who entertain are all friendly and strive to make the guests comfortable and happy! Overall, everything is great, and if they were able to remove dogs from the beach and increase the number of sunbeds, it would be even better. If possible, I will go to Club Hotel Sera again, despite the negatives. Wishing all tourists a great vacation and urging the hotel staff not to lower the quality of the services provided!

My sister and I stayed at the hotel for the second time. We had purchased a room in the Park building, but upon arrival, we were given a room in the Club building with a partial sea view. The hotel is perfect for us, and if everything goes well, we will come back to Sera next year. I would like to mention the animators Mario, James, Barysh, Natalia, and Daria. They lead various activities during the day and put on amazing evening shows. The hotel staff is friendly and welcoming. The food is good, and there is always something to suit our tastes. The bartenders not only make delicious cocktails but also beautifully decorate them.

We stayed at the hotel in April 223. We liked everything. It's only a 2-minute drive from the airport to the hotel. We were checked-in immediately upon arrival, even earlier than expected. The room was excellent, everything was working, and the view was superb. Housekeeping and minibar replenishment were done every day. The grounds are large, green, and beautiful. We visited during the off-season, so there was plenty of space and it felt empty. The pool with seawater was not yet open. The staff was very cool, everyone was polite, kind, and helpful. The cocktails were very tasty. The beach was comfortable. I definitely recommend it, and we will return there again ourselves.

Before writing the review itself, I would like to express my immense gratitude to all the staff at Club Hotel Sera, especially to Maria at the reception, who checked us in and took care of our accommodation. Thank you for the great room, for your responsiveness and competence. We sincerely thank you. The hotel team did everything to make our stay enjoyable. A girl named Nur was simply beautiful, pleasant to meet! Sweet, kind, and amazing. The live music performances every day were exceptional, bravo to all the artists! We stayed as a couple in room 126, which is on the second floor but feels like the 5th or 6th floor due to the view of the sea and the Lower Duden Waterfall. Sitting on the bed, you have the waterfall right in front of your eyes. You can hear the sound of the waves, it's superb. We were accommodated right upon arrival, without any delays or extra paperwork. The food was varied and plentiful. Considering it was not the peak season, we didn't expect any special gourmet treats. They don't feed you like this at home anyway. There's no need to be picky or search for something unknown. The room cleaning service was not intrusive and good. No complaints. The spa area was clean, cozy, and beautiful everywhere. We enjoyed the sauna and the pool daily. The hotel grounds are very, very, very beautiful. We have been to many places, but nothing has impressed us like this.

My daughter and I were in Antalya at the end of April in the year 223. We really wanted some sunshine and the sea, but our vacation wasn't until August. So we thought of just spending a week in Antalya, taking a stroll and getting a tan. We chose a hotel close to the city but also near the beach. In reality, however, we only managed to visit the Old Town once because we enjoyed ourselves so much within the hotel. The interior of the hotel was like an eastern jewelry box, creating a truly atmospheric and luxurious feel. The entire property had a large number of pleasant spots, tables, and chairs, all surrounded by greenery, creating a relaxing atmosphere. But it was much more interesting to fully engage in the hotel's entertainment program, which was very diverse, and try everything - sports, various activities, evening shows. Not only was it fun, but it also helped us meet new people. Overall, there was a very friendly and warm atmosphere, primarily created by the hotel staff, which made the guests naturally conform to it - everyone was smiling, supporting and helping each other. The charming guys from the entertainment team were excellent, taught us various sports, and kept the party going at the discos. We had a good command of English, so we enjoyed interacting with them. If you have trouble with foreign languages, they also speak a little Russian, and there is a Russian employee at the front desk who will answer all your questions and assist you in everything. In terms of the material side, our room was cleaned well, and we even put up a "do not disturb" sign since we only stayed in the room at night. The food fully satisfied us - it's very strange to read about the monotony of the buffet when it doesn't imply that you have to eat everything at once, but rather choose different options every day. If there are four different types of eggs for breakfast every day, then it's already four different breakfast options for four days. The only thing you shouldn't expect is seafood variety - there were only mussels and cocktail shrimp in the salad, but there were always two types of fish available. As for the ten different meat dishes, you could definitely choose something different every day. The waiters and managers were very attentive, instantly removing the tableware, bringing tea and wine, even though the dining area was always crowded. There was live music playing in the restaurant during lunch and dinner, turning a regular meal into a festive evening. The alcohol was local, wine was served in bottles, and the cocktails were decent, but it wasn't the main focus of our vacation, so we didn't pay too much attention to it. There were many different bars on the property, although in April, some of them were still closed, but there were no problems or queues. Yes, if you are a fan of quality coffee, you need to bring your own, as the machines in the restaurants serve powdered coffee. I tried the eastern-style coffee once in a bar, and it had an awful taste of stale coffee. Maybe it's better during peak season. Wi-Fi worked everywhere, even on the beach and in the rooms, so there were no issues with that. There were several beaches, and sun loungers were available throughout the property, so there were no problems. Although, it's true that there weren't many people in April. There were many dogs on the beach, behaving like owners, but peacefully and friendly. They did enjoy sleeping on the sun loungers though. The only regret we had was that we didn't come a bit later - the main activities started from May 1st, with shows on the open-air stage and more activities. However, the prices also increase during that time. Therefore, I highly recommend the hotel. Of course, the price was a bit high for April, especially compared to other five-star hotels, but we didn't regret it in the end because of the overall friendly holiday atmosphere.

We rested in the first half of April. Weather: most days were sunny, we sunbathed and it was warm, we swam in invigorating water, but it was not easy to get completely in. In the evenings, a jacket was necessary. For the flight, we had to pay extra for Turkish Airlines, as we had flown with them before, but they changed their aircraft to Anadolu, which worsened the service. The seats did not recline and the food was just a bun, basically bread. We made an additional payment specifically for Turkish Airlines and got nothing in return. The tour operator and the office did not want to solve the problem. However, on the way back, we flew with Yamal Airlines. The seats were reclining, the food and drinks were great. The space between the seats was not too spacious, but I think it was standard. The seats were wide and we took off with a slight delay because the Turkish Airlines passengers were not released from the plane on time. The transfer to the hotel was very fast, and our hotel was the first one. We were immediately checked in and sent for breakfast, which was a big plus. We were given a room in the Elegance building, which they presented as a generous gesture, although they only had one Elegance building in operation and the rest were closed during the off-season. We had a garden view standard room reserved, although we could have chosen a room without a specific view without any additional charge, they would have still accommodated us in the Elegance building. Our room was on the so-called 1st floor, but in fact, it was the 6th floor. The bar was replenished daily, but for some reason, they provided only one bottle of each drink for two people. However, if requested, they would give more. The food was delicious, the lamb was heavenly, the fish was overcooked and dry, the different types of eggplants were tasty, and they had a good selection of calamari, mussels, etc. The coffee was tasty, and they also served ayran and a variety of wines. You could catch a waiter's attention or pour it yourself at the lobby bar where they made cocktails such as milk-based ones, mojitos, pina coladas, coffee, balantais, and tequila. The territory was very well-maintained with pathways and cozy corners. There was a small area with turtles where they fed them cucumbers, grass from the restaurant, and fruits. They were very happy turtles. The far right corner was abandoned, maybe they will clean it up by summer, but it's worth taking a walk. There were crabs crawling on the rocks near the pier and cute snails with horns coming out in the evening. Many people spoke Russian, and we bought things from the pharmacy opposite the hotel and got change in local currency at a good exchange rate. However, at Migros, the cashier made mistakes with the exchange rate and even gave incorrect change. After we confronted her, she added more money. You can buy Antalya cards at Turkcell, a little to the left of the hotel and further ahead. The card costs 25 lira, and the fare for one trip is 9.6 lira. The internet is available everywhere, from the rooms to the beach and even at the bus stop. There is a club on the floor above the reception, and the music stops at midnight. The entertainment is not pushy, and they have a kids' club. There aren't many downsides: there were broken dishes in the restaurant and the hotel glasses were chipped. Some waiters didn't know how to take away dishes properly and might even accidentally touch your head. There was one incident where they took away a clean plate with freshly served meat. It seems they didn't care what they grabbed. There are dogs everywhere, in the city and of course on our beach. Not all of them have chips. Right now, there are seven puppies, and there is also a pregnant dog. I love dogs very much, but their stray life is far from being domesticated, and there is no point in letting them reproduce. The sizes of the dogs range from dachshunds to Alabais. They are kind towards people but can argue among themselves. Of course, everyone feeds them, and the puppies are adorable, especially the girl with olive eyes. Please post her photo. There is dog feces on the beach, and no one cleans it up. There was an incident where the internet disappeared, and they changed routers. There were several routers in the corridor, and they left trash under each one until the next day. No one responded to complaints about the lack of internet. The noise from the planes can be heard no matter how you try, and it is very loud. There are also prayers from the mosques through speakers starting at 4 am. The dogs join in during the morning prayer. There is barking from dogs at night. The hotel guide from TUI Turkey is only focused on excursions. He didn't provide any information and directed us to the guest relations instead. There is no volleyball court.

My husband and I spent our vacation from April 6th to 14th. We were immediately given the Elegant room upon arrival at 7 am. Room 145 was huge, but without a balcony, just a mini-version of one. However, it suited us because we had booked a ROH room. The bed sheets were extremely clean and changed completely every other day. The room had everything we needed, including a mini version of bathroom amenities such as shampoo (normal), conditioner (average quality), and shower gel (good quality). Hot water was always available, and the cleanliness was always maintained. The cleaning service was good. When we chose the hotel, we fully understood where we were going and that it was an unusual hotel with a "gypsy" style. We wanted to experience that lifestyle. I don't understand people who don't like it; why did they choose such a hotel? Read the reviews and look at the photos, it's clear that it's a grandiose hotel. The food was delicious, and we gained a few extra pounds around our waistline. The desserts were especially tasty, and we enjoyed the variety of salads and sandwiches with salmon at the snack table. The drinks, though local, were of good quality, including beer, whiskey, brandy, wine, vermouth, champagne, and various cocktails. The staff members were all smiling and ready to assist with any request. While reading reviews, I often came across praise for the waiter Ismail. When I saw him working, I understood why he was appreciated for his excellent attitude towards guests. He is always positive and very friendly. Thank you so much for his outstanding work! I would also like to mention the waitress with dreadlocks, who was also very talented. There were very few animations, but we didn't need them, especially since it wasn't the peak season. The piano playing in the lobby and restaurant was fantastic! Sometimes we went to the disco, which was also a fun way to spend the evening. The downside of Antalya, as well as the hotel's beach, was the presence of dogs and cats. There were many, and we felt particularly sorry for the puppies living on the hotel beach, around seven of them. Most of the dogs had ear chips, but they looked so miserable; it breaks my heart. We bought dry food and fed them. I don't understand why the animals are not sterilized. You can only go for a walk along the promenade if accompanied by a group of dogs. Of course, there weren't as many dogs on the hotel premises, but they were still there. We independently bought Antalya cards not far from the hotel. It is completely doable; just ask the locals, they will tell you where to go, near the Migros district. We exchanged some money at the nearest Migros by buying something in the store and paying in dollars, and they gave us change in lira. We took the bus to visit the Old Town, the funicular, and Terra City, and it was not difficult at all. We really liked the hotel, and the 9 days flew by unnoticed. We are considering coming back, specifically during the off-season when there aren't many tourists. I highly recommend it!

This is not the first time I have stayed at this hotel, I also stayed here in the summer. The hotel is located near the airport, which is a huge plus, and it is also possible to reach the old town, Konakli, and any shopping center by bus. The service is very attentive and friendly, they gave me a room with a magnificent view of the waterfall and the sea at the reception, and all this without any additional charges, for which I am very grateful))) The internet worked everywhere, even on the beach. The buffet was amazing, there was always a lot of fish, several types of meat, plenty of desserts, fruits, delicious coffee, and beautiful cocktails)) And overall, the service is top-notch, I will definitely come back)))

Peace and goodness to everyone. In order for my review not to get lost in the "summer" series, I am writing now, perhaps it will help someone in choosing a place for a vacation off-season. We stayed at the hotel at the end of March, beginning of April. The weather was awful, the sun was shining, but the wind spoiled everything. We don't really like Antalya, but we had to come here to combine vacation and business. When monitoring the offers, Sera seemed to us the most optimal option in terms of price-quality ratio, the price for the hotel was lower than many much worse options (and these options were either only with breakfast or only accommodation). The hotel's biggest plus is its location: close to the airport, a good area of Lara, there is a place to take a walk along the sea, a bus stop (final stop) is in close proximity to the hotel. I won't describe the buildings, everything has already been written and rewritten many times, I will just say that we bought a room in the "Club" building, but we were accommodated in the "Elegance" without any additional payment, the "Club" was closed, although there were offers for both buildings on the website, the "Elegance" was more expensive by some small amount. It is better to choose the "Elegance", it is the main building, everything is concentrated in this building, and another big plus in my opinion is that all rooms have a partial sea view, the higher the floor, the better. I honestly don't remember the number of our room, but if you face the sea, the rooms with sea views, residential buildings, and the final stop are on the left, and on the right, there is the sea and a waterfall, this view is much cooler.... I don't want to describe the rooms and the hotel's decor, you can read about it in almost all reviews, I will just say that at first I was almost blinded)))) by the amount of gold, silk, and mirrors, but then I got used to it. This is certainly not my style, I love space and minimalism, but in this hotel, everything is the opposite (including the territory), but we were well aware of where we were going, so it would be silly to lower the rating and write that "This is kitsch, cheap, awful, tasteless, etc." I will briefly mention the moments of the winter concept that, in my opinion, will help form an overall impression and avoid inflated expectations. Service. Until 1.4.223, there was self-service in the main lobby bar, waiters did NOT deliver drinks, it was very clearly stated, they only collected dishes, from 1.4.223, the number of staff was increased, there were no problems, the staff was running around like crazy, fulfilling all orders. Bars. The bars on the territory were not working (not a single one), at the beach, it was working nominally and not every day. So don't count on any alcoholic drinks at the beach. Water, juice, tea-coffee. Beach. Despite the strong winds, we still managed to get a little tan, there are cozy terraces on the beach with sun loungers protected from the wind, this is a huge plus. If it is sunny, but the temperature is, for example, +16, it is enough to lie in the sun for an hour. Food. Despite the winter concept, the food in the restaurant is decent, there are no delicacies, but the dishes are well-prepared (I will say, with love), no queues, there is enough space for everyone, there was live music in the restaurant for dinner very often. Unfortunately, I cannot say anything about the animation. We weren't interested, we spent all evenings outdoors. What I didn't like. A large number of dogs on the hotel's territory, I consider it unacceptable. Perhaps the noise from passing planes will bother someone, the airport is nearby, many planes land right above you. In general, I can confidently recommend the hotel. Against the backdrop of crazy, sometimes inadequate prices, this hotel has a good price-quality ratio. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I will be happy to answer.

5* Hotel e Lue, food -Ultra All Inclusive! This is stated in the hotel information! Hotel location: The close proximity to the airport is a controversial fact. Mostly, airplanes fly far away and it's normal. But sometimes they fly over the hotel and it's already annoying. On the transfer to the airport (Odeon, receiving from Coral in Turkey), they arranged a trip for me through 2 hotels and a candy store for 1.5 hours. And you say it's 15 minutes and I'm at the airport! We checked in on the morning of September 12th, 223rd immediately upon arrival. The room was on the 4th floor of the Elegance building, overlooking the public beach in Lara. The room was normal in size, in a gypsy style, like the whole hotel. The air conditioner worked tolerably. To get a temperature of 22 degrees, you have to set it to 2. The internet in the rooms is excellent. There is no kettle, cups, glasses, tea or coffee in the room. The glasses brought from the lobby bar were taken away by the maid on the next day. Apparently, they spoiled the room interior! Beach bag, blankets, little things in the bathroom - as it turned out, it's all upon request! And this is in a 5-star hotel, seriously! Room cleaning - making the bed and putting new towels. Carpets were not vacuumed, corners were dirty, there was a slight smell of old carpets. Food: standard, chicken, a small selection of meat for dinner, everything is somehow modest and a complete lack of red lightly salted fish for breakfast! It's pointless to talk about shrimp and crabs. Alcohol: Turkish whiskey, wine, champagne. Good alcohol is chargeable. Cocktails in the bars are terrible (they are all made with Turkish alcohol). There is whiskey (Red Label, Ballantine's) hidden by the bartenders in the cabinet (only in the lobby bar and Club building) and if you don't know about it, you will be drinking Turkish alcohol! Rahat-loukum is never served with coffee. It's not available anywhere here! And Turkish-style coffee is hard to find, and where it is available, it's not tasty. Beach: small, dirty. The boards on the pier are wobbly, worn out, and stepping on one of them, you can stumble on another. The torn umbrella on the pier was not replaced despite my request. You cannot rinse off on the pier, you have to go to the beach. You cannot drink Turkish coffee at the beach bar! There is no toilet on the beach! The internet on the pier is bad. Territory: The concept of the landscape designer with a large number of small narrow paths is not clear, where it's difficult for two people to pass by each other. To have coffee or tea, you need to go somewhere. In the à la carte restaurants, you cannot drink coffee or tea (except Olympos). Evening entertainment: out of 12 days, the Turkish singer Murat Alpsu (with an orchestra and solo) deserves respect for his show, the night club in the amphitheater (2 times). I witnessed three (3) weddings - can they be considered evening shows? Hotel guests during this time gather in a small bar and look for a place to sit! People smoke everywhere outdoors - it annoys non-smokers! Live music is not impressive. Dogs and cats roam the hotel grounds. The hotel is a 4 out of 5!

Hotel "Club Hotel Sera", January 23-3, 223. We chose the hotel in Antalya itself, in 221 we had already vacationed in Lara and liked it. Antalya airport is close by (15 minutes with traffic), you can get around the city using public transportation, which is perfect for the offseason. If the weather is bad, you can go for a walk in the city or go shopping. We flew with the Turkish company "Pegasus". We arrived in Antalya at 7:30 in the morning and departed at 2:55 (everything was according to schedule). We had a full 8 days. The flight was 4 hours long. The airline is a low-cost carrier, so they don't provide food or even water. Food and drinks are available for purchase on board for those who want them. We booked the tour 5 days before departure, and the cost of the tour was 71 thousand rubles. The tour operator is "TezTour". We arrived at the hotel at 8:30 in the morning and checked in within 1 minute, we didn't even have to fill out anything. No extra charges - it was a good time for vacation. We booked an Elegance room and got room 1923 in the main building on the 9th floor with a view of the sea and sunrise. The room was large and beautiful, like everything else in the hotel, but not new (for those for whom it is important - there were some signs of wear). There was a safe, a minibar (Coke, Fanta, mineral water, juice - replenished daily with 1 item per room), a television (which we didn't watch), a large bed, a chair, a coffee table, various types of tables and cabinets, a large wardrobe. There was no tea set in the room. Bathrobes and slippers were provided. The bathroom had a bathtub with a shower, and the toiletries provided were shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and soap. The balcony had 2 chairs and a table. With the window open, it was quite noisy - planes taking off and landing, a busy road below, and local dogs barking and running after passing cars at night. It didn't bother us now, but it may be a problem in the summer. The hotel is luxurious and, although it's not my style, I can confirm that it's beautiful. You want to take photos at every corner. There is gold and mirrors everywhere, huge crystal chandeliers, high ceilings adorned with ornaments, but you quickly get used to it. This hotel will definitely be remembered for a long time. Food and drinks are included in the all-inclusive concept (not ultra). There is no intermediate food, only apples and cookies available in the lobby bar after lunch. But the variety of food for lunch and dinner didn't allow us to lose weight. There was chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, and liver prepared in various ways. Grilled fish every day - sea bream, sea bass, trout. Side dishes were fried, steamed, and vegetable options, whatever you desire. In the evening, there were always calamari, mussels, and salted-smoked fish as appetizers among other things. The dessert selection was very diverse, and for dinner, there was sometimes ice cream with halva. The alcoholic drinks were good (we remember that it's not ultra), with a wide variety of cocktails available. If you wanted something specific, you could choose. The staff at the hotel, especially the waiters, were always friendly, ready to help and serve. They learned Russian

Good time of day, everyone! We stayed at this hotel with my mother. Overall, we were satisfied with the vacation, but there were some downsides. The hotel did not live up to its advertised ultra all inclusive and deluxe status. Perhaps this is only during the off-season, but still, if you claim something, you should always deliver. The hotel's dining is not available 24/7, there are breaks (I have attached a schedule photo). Many facilities on the premises and inside the hotel were not functioning (almost everything on the premises, except for the shops and poolside bar, was closed). The extravagant design of the hotel is due to it being a former casino :) Entertainment. The animation program consisted of a kids' club (the girls entertained the children on the beach and on the hotel premises) and a male animator. Every day, the hotel displayed the daily program on screens - there were darts, boules, on alternate days there were zumba and step aerobics (indoors, not outdoors), there was always live music in the restaurant during lunch and dinner, and in the lobby at 14:3 and 2:. The musicians were great, but you feel uncomfortable in the restaurant - a man plays the grand piano brilliantly, while you sit and enjoy the delicacies from the chefs :) Wi-Fi connection is good on the premises, beach, and inside the hotel - it is very poor in the rooms, somewhat acceptable only near the entrance door - a downside for a deluxe hotel. Dining. The beef was delicious, even for a picky eater like me (I don't eat many types of food). There was always plenty to eat and it was tasty. The desserts were also delicious. The gözleme and all types of baklava were simply magnificent! The à la carte restaurant did not live up to its name at all. I was very disappointed that we went there instead of the main restaurant - it was more pleasant and tastier there. The staff at the à la carte restaurant spoke poor Russian and used the informal pronoun "ты" instead of the logical "вы". The wine was sour (we checked the prices at the stores - they were 2-3 rubles for our 2-3 dollars). I drink dry wine, but this was too bad. The beer and cocktails were good, but be aware that there might be very little (or no) alcohol in the cocktail, so I recommend trying it and, if necessary, simply ordering additional pure alcohol. However, they serve them beautifully, especially if you give tips to the waiters :) Rooms. We initially booked an elegance room - it was given to us. The view was simply magnificent! The sea, mountains, waterfall 😍 Unfortunately, there was no kettle and tea set. The toothbrush set was not provided, but I suspect we should have requested it at the reception. The room had the standard set of hygiene products - soap, shampoo, shower gel, and conditioner. Towels were changed daily, and the bed linen was changed once during our week-long stay. There was a large balcony with a table and chairs - great for sitting there in the evenings. The mini-bar was restocked daily. Premises. The premises are beautiful, with many cats and turtles. You can take an evening walk or sit outside. However, a large portion of the premises was not operational and that part looked "sad" - they had not started preparing for the season yet, and there was some construction debris. Not a great picture. Beach and sea. It is evident that the sea has receded significantly, as half of the beach is covered in shells. The beach is a bit dirty, and animals use it as a bathroom. The hotel staff does not clean it, but rather cover it up with the same shells and pebbles. Trash is thrown into a sort of ditch where there used to be water. The beach is part of the Lara city beach and is not fenced off in any way. Location. The hotel is located in the city, but it is considered part of Lara. We walked to the waterfall in 2-3 minutes, and from there we went to TerraCity Shopping Center (+3 minutes). There we bought an Antalyakart and topped it up (we did not see any other machines closer to the hotel). There is a bus stop right in front of the hotel from where you can go to any part of the city. We went to TerraCity Shopping Center, Dipo Mall (with a transfer), the old town, and Mark Antalya Shopping Center. There are also two pharmacies right next to the hotel, as well as Migros, Shock, A11, and Bim grocery stores, two clubs, cafes/restaurants, excursions, and much more. Staff. We liked the staff - attentive and always willing to help. Only a few waiters speak Russian (and English), but they always understand. There is a Russian girl at the reception. In the restaurant, if they do not come to take your order, you can call a waiter yourself. Tips are welcomed everywhere - we gave tips to the waiters in the bar (about $1) and they made us cocktails that were not on the menu. The guys at the lobby bar are amazing! Unfortunately, we only remembered Ismail by name, but the girl with Afro-style hair was also great. The managers in the restaurant are also amazing! They would come to the table themselves if the waiters were not able to serve us. We exchanged money in the city. The most favorable exchange rate is offered in the street exchange offices. With the official exchange rate of 1$=19 lira, the airport offered 17.6 lira, the hotel offered 18.26 lira, and the shopping center offered 18.8 lira. The rates on the streets were 19 and higher. There are no exchange fees, but check the amounts and whether a fee is charged - typically, all exchange offices immediately indicate if there is a fee near the rate. I have not seen any fees myself. In the city, near the shopping centers and currency exchange offices, be cautious - there are poorly dressed guys begging for money, and they can snatch your bag.

We stayed at the hotel with our family for the second time. It was already my third time there. We flew with Korendon - everything was on schedule, but they don't give poppy seed rolls for free during the flight. We were prepared for that and brought pastries with us. The tour operator, Fan End Sun, had a separate story with the hotel guides. Well, never mind - this is a review about the hotel. We stayed in the Elegance building. When booking, we specifically chose this building because the rooms there are big, comfortable, and the atmosphere suits us 100%. We received our room immediately upon arrival as we arrived at the hotel in the evening. Room 179 with a view of Lara and the sea. The view was magnificent. We watched planes take off and land. By the way, they don't bother at all. They don't fly over the hotel at night. If you want a room with a view of the waterfall, request an even-numbered room. Before the vacation, I read reviews about bed bugs in the Elegance building, even though I had already been there twice myself, but I was scared. THERE ARE NO BED BUGS there. Don't read those reviews. Everything is very clean! This year, the hotel pleased us, especially my husband. The food has improved significantly compared to last year. There were seafood practically every day, very tasty cherries and apricots, and especially baklava. It's as if they read my previous review and decided, "LET'S BAKE BAKLAVA." I wrote that there was no baklava at all. Well, it was available from morning until evening. They even set up a separate bar during the day for baklava snacks! On Fridays, they serve crayfish in large quantities. This year, four restaurants operate on an à la carte basis (Mexican, Italian, Sushi, and Mongolian). The Mexican restaurant was really fun - you could dress up in traditional clothes and hats, take a cigar, and take pictures. They also play Mexican music there. To add variety, we visited all four restaurants. I wouldn't say we were thrilled, but there were some delicious dishes and some that were just okay. Make reservations for all of them as soon as you arrive. Maybe something will catch your interest. In the Mongolian restaurant, just like last year, one cook prepares the food well, while the other one burns everything. There were also improvements in the drinks department this year - they served Tuborg beer, imported whiskey (5 types, including Ballantine's). For kids, there was Bubble Tea. The best cocktails were made at the Lobby, specifically by Jasmine. She has been impressing us with her bartending skills for the second year in a row. A big thanks to her. The waiters in the Lobby and at the evening shows are running around like crazy, offering drinks and snacks. This wasn't happening last year. A plus for the hotel! Regarding the beach, there have been changes - they have removed wooden platforms almost everywhere. They either covered them partially with sand or removed them completely. It was really scary to walk on them. But they don't really take care of the beach - there is trash lying around, they don't clean the bins for weeks, and no one has swept the rocks and debris at the Vigvams beach in a day. This year, dogs are roaming around the hotel without restraint - during dinner, they calmly enter the restaurant. I witnessed a small child running, and a dog barked at him. The child got very scared and started crying. The hotel management needs to do something about this dog nuisance. We attended the evening shows about three times. Two of those times were concerts. We really enjoyed the concert by a Turkish singer with a symphony orchestra on Sunday. It was followed by a fantastic fireworks display. And finally, a small "spoonful of tar" - the work of Guest Relations, specifically Alina, was disgraceful. Since we are regular guests at the hotel, we were provided with a certificate from TopHotels to receive compliments for regular guests. This certificate was also confirmed by the hotel. Upon arrival, we handed this certificate to Alina in the Guest Relations department. Everything was written in English and Russian on the certificate, stating that it gives us the right to receive a compliment at the Sera Hotel. Alina speaks Russian!!! She first looked at it with wide eyes, then went to the manager, and when she returned, she nodded as if she understood everything now and said that the compliment would be provided to us. But they didn't bring us any compliment the next day, or the day after, or even after a week. Of course, I didn't die without a fruit plate in the room, but I still had a bad feeling about it. Of course, there are some minor negatives, but the positives outweigh them. I think that next year we will consider this hotel for our vacation.

I will start with the fact that I spent a very long time, just a verrrrry long time choosing a hotel, due to the noticeable increase in prices in Turkey. So I will write a review, maybe it will be useful to someone. We stayed with children (1 year and 3 years old) and were accommodated in a spacious room in the Elegance building. The room was prepared in advance with a baby cot (we checked in at night) and it was cleaned every day. The location of the rooms is convenient because you can't hear any music or noise from the other guests, it's just great. The staff in general is very good at their job and polite, you can see that the hotel management is keeping an eye on this! The hotel grounds are very small, everything is quite close together and initially it's overwhelming to see how much there is... well, these are just details, you'll figure it out. The food in the restaurant is a solid four plus. The meat, fish, chicken, vegetables, fruits, cheeses, desserts, everything is delicious and varied, nothing to complain about. We had crabs and calamari twice during our vacation. The baby cereals were... well, I don't think it's a big deal, for those who need it, they can bring their own. The alcohol was fine for me. There are plenty of alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails, champagne, coffee, just coffee, tea, milkshakes, and a lot of other options to suit every taste. The local Marti Bianca with olives is also great. At the bar near the red pool, there is a bartender named Timur, thank you Timur for your work! He makes excellent cocktails, everything is prepared properly, Margarita, Pina Colada, just amazing. When Timur was not there and other bartenders replaced him, it was not the same... The sea and the beach, well, the pebbles on the beach are a bit unpleasant, they seem small but sometimes it hurts to walk on them, there's almost no fine sand, at least not near the water. As you saw in the photos (I assume), there are three beaches. The first one, let's call it the standard beach, is not very long but there was enough space. The second one is the pier, it's also comfortable, and the third one is like a lagoon, a pool for children where it's very very shallow, it's great for little kids, like a chlorinated pool, and there's a bar nearby so that moms and dads don't get bored and the kids have a good time. There are four à la carte restaurants and we tried all of them, so make a reservation and give them a try, they're good overall. The only à la carte restaurant, Mongolia, didn't live up to its name, it was just noodles cooked like wok noodles, it seemed mediocre to me to be called a restaurant... but the noodles were tasty, if you want noodles, go there. Delicious desserts, tea, and coffee in the afternoon near the restaurant outside. I can't say that I want to go back to this hotel next year because I think it's necessary to visit other places. But with a high probability, someday I would return to Peru. I have a good impression and the most positive memories. I wish you all an easy hotel choice and a great vacation!

The hotel is simply fantastic, we have something to compare it to. We are already looking at booking for next year. We are very satisfied and will definitely come back. The rooms are clean and comfortable. There are a lot of entertainment options for children. Girls from the kids club Emel, Tuana, Turkhan, Mus, and Berfu, thank you for giving us the opportunity to relax without being distracted by the children, we trust you with our daughter and she is happy to come to you every day!!! We were very pleased that the children were taken to the dolphin show and mini zoo. As for the overall relaxation and stay, everything was great. Delicious food, tasty cocktails, and polite staff.

Overall - we recommend the hotel, we were satisfied. There are many positives, which have been extensively written about, so I don't want to repeat them. I would like to draw attention to the downsides, which I did not see before arriving at the hotel. 1. Very poor (almost nonexistent) internet in the room. 6th floor of the main building. If you want internet in the room, you have to sit on the floor by the door. 2. Narrow paths on the hotel grounds cluttered on both sides with thousands of ceramic pots of various sizes, empty and with plants, which further narrow the already narrow paths. If an elderly person is in front of you, you will have to shuffle behind them the entire way. 3. There is only one narrow door to exit the main building and access the beach and the entire hotel grounds. 4. All paths, the area around the pool, all outdoor restaurants are paved with smooth and quite slippery tiles, which are naturally always wet. Over the course of 2 weeks, I witnessed so many falls and we ourselves fell quite hard, it is surprising that they haven't taken any steps to address this issue. It is very dangerous. 5. There are constant queues at the bars. Yes, the cocktails are tasty and beautiful. So, on average, you have to wait for 3 minutes for one drink. At the CIP Bar, during the day, there is one bartender for alcoholic beverages and one barista for coffee and non-alcoholic beverages. There are long and constant queues there. Many people order 2-3 cocktails at once because no one wants to wait again. The same goes for non-alcoholic drinks. 6. There is a cold stream coming from the bottom of the sea. In August, this is a plus because the pools become boiling hot by evening. However, at the end of the season, it may not be very pleasant for those who prefer warm water. But of course, this is not dependent on the hotel. 7. The biggest downside is the race for sunbeds. If you like to sleep in until 1 p.m., then most likely, if you're lucky, you will find a sunbed at the very end of the beach; if not, you will have to sit on a small chair or by the big pool. The beach is small and not designed to accommodate the number of guests the hotel can hold. 8. The kids' club was disappointing, as the activities did not match the advertised schedule multiple times. The schedule for adult and children's entertainment can be seen daily on screens throughout the hotel and in Instagram stories. And when children are waiting for a specific event, they leave the beach for the kids' club and return disappointed because what was supposed to be according to the schedule was not there, it's definitely not ideal. The adult entertainment ALWAYS matches the schedule. 9. There are only 3 elevators in the main building of the 12-story building, which is very few during peak hours (breakfast and dinner). Sometimes we had to wait for 1 minute. Everything else was superb. The food, à la carte restaurants, evening shows, sea view, waterfall, and service - we liked everything.

Let's start from the beginning. The meeting was great! While preparing the room, we were invited for lunch, and by the time we finished eating, the room was ready. The room itself is not very spacious, but it is quite decent. It has everything we need, and a huge balcony. Room 623. Overall, we have no complaints at all. Everything was satisfactory. It is quiet and peaceful. The past three days, we had slightly noisy neighbors, but the soundproofing in the room is good enough, so it's not a big issue. Upon check-in, we were informed that there are restaurants on the hotel premises where we can make reservations. We made reservations and the cuisine in this hotel is excellent. The selection is simply enormous, and you can always find whatever you desire. Now, regarding the restaurants, they have interesting dishes on the menu, but in reality, they serve the same food as for lunch or dinner. The presentation might be slightly different, though. I understand that the hotel needs to save money in these challenging times. I am writing this so that travelers won't be disappointed if they choose not to make reservations at these restaurants. The hotel grounds are very interesting, with many photo spots. I particularly enjoyed walking to the sea in the morning at sunrise. It was breathtaking. The water is warm, and the sunrise is beautiful. Cocktails, tea, and coffee are always available, just in different locations depending on the time. The bartenders are amazing! They work quickly and make beautiful drinks. The coffee is excellent. In conclusion, I liked everything in general. The hotel is worthy. The airplanes flying over the hotel do not cause any discomfort, on the contrary, it's interesting. Lastly, I would like to mention the work of the waitstaff in the restaurants during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They were attentive from the moment we sat down, offering wine, water, tea... Excellent service. Well done.

We stayed at the Sera hotel from September 13th to September 2nd. Only 7 nights, which seemed very short to us. The travelers are a young family with a child (33 years old, 32 years old and 2 years old), plus grandparents (52 and 56 years old). Location. Excellent for us. Only 15 minutes from Antalya Airport, on the outskirts of the city. There is a bus stop right by the hotel, so you can go to the center of Antalya if desired, but we didn't go. There is a pharmacy, some travel agencies, and a small supermarket on the street next to the hotel. Due to the proximity to the airport, planes regularly take off above the hotel, but it didn't bother us at all, and our son loved it. He constantly pointed his finger at the sky and said "wow". Guests. An equal mix of Russians, Germans, and Turks. Very few English tourists. The hotel is very Instagram-friendly with many mirrors for selfies, beautiful chairs, and specially designated photo zones, but the guests were mostly elderly people aged 5+ and older. This may be because we went in September when all the children are already in school. But there were hardly any young people. Rooms. The hotel has 3 buildings: Park (the cheapest and furthest from the sea), Club (mid-range price, closest to the sea), and Elegance (the most expensive, located in the middle between Park and Club, it houses the reception, main restaurant, spa, gym, and other amenities). Our grandparents stayed in the Park building. The rooms were minimalist, with simple decor, and a very small balcony, about 1.5 by 1.5 meters. One person can sit there, but it's problematic for two. The view from the lower floors of the Park building is quite sad, overlooking some pipes, overgrowth, and walls. Grandparents eventually changed their room to the 5th floor and were satisfied, but keep in mind that this may only be possible in September when the hotel is not fully booked, but it's questionable whether it will be possible during the peak season in July. We stayed in an Elegance room in the main building. If the price difference between Park and Elegance is not significant, I highly recommend paying extra. The Elegance building has an impressive reception, a large lobby bar, a spa, a gym, the main restaurant, and absolutely breathtaking views from all rooms. When we checked in, I asked for a view of the waterfall (with mountains, sea, waterfall, and the whole of Antalya at your fingertips, plus the sunset!), but they were all occupied. However, they easily moved us to the next day. Our room was on the 8th floor, 1822, but it's probably the 11th or even 12th floor in reality, as the building is located on a hill, and the lower floors are occupied by the reception, restaurant, and other public areas. The view was simply WOW-WOW and WOW again! If I ever go back to this hotel, it will only be for an Elegance room. There are no kettles in the rooms, so you can't have tea or coffee in your room. There is also no iron in the rooms. We forgot ours, so we had to order the hotel's ironing service. It cost 5 euros for a dress and 3 euros for a shirt. They did a great job! The Wi-Fi works excellently in the rooms and practically everywhere, so we had no problem watching movies, which is a big plus. IMPORTANT! Especially for parents! The balconies in the Elegance rooms are very dangerous. Families with young children, beware. Not only is there a huge gap between the railings (a mischievous two-year-old can easily squeeze through!), but the golden holders that hold the glass on the balcony are fixed with some kind of glue (???) instead of screws and easily come off. Never, under any circumstances, leave your child on the balcony or let them tap on the glass with their hands. They can fall out in an instant. We reported this to reception, but I don't know if the hotel will check all the balconies in the entire Elegance building. Room cleaning. Very disappointing. But it's the same everywhere in Turkey. We have never seen good cleaning in any hotel. There was dust on all heavy frames, streaks on the mirror, and it seemed like they hadn't wiped the phone in the room since the hotel was built. There were streaks everywhere in the bathroom. The daily cleaning only included a quick bed making (very sloppy), towel change (if we left ours on the floor), emptying the trash and adding toilet paper. They didn't clean the sink, and the decorative pillows and throw that we neatly placed on the chair when we checked in, stayed there until we checked out, no one touched them. They only changed the bed linen on the 5th day and only once replenished the mini-bar in the room on the 5th day. We tried not to get upset, but the cleaning really disappointed us. Hotel grounds. Wow! Wow! Wow! A huge number of bushes, flowers, in the ground, in pots. Incredibly green. Absolutely deserving applause! There are a lot of cats on the grounds, the Turks love them and feed them. Cats sleep everywhere, on sun loungers, in the hotel lobby, on chairs, and walk around the outdoor restaurants. Our son was thrilled and wanted to pet all the cats. The cats are used to guests and very friendly. If you don't like animals, you better find another hotel! We also saw several dogs (all with plastic tags on their ears) and a family of turtles. For some reason, the turtles kept fighting each other, but our little one enjoyed watching them. Food. During the summer, the hotel has 4 a-la-carte restaurants, and their visits are included in the stay. It is necessary to make a reservation on the first day of arrival, as the restaurants fill up quickly during the season. The best restaurant is the Italian one. All the dishes were incredibly delicious, the service was fast, and we gladly left a tip. We also went to the sushi, Mexican, and Mongolian restaurants. The sushi restaurant had live music, the Mexican restaurant had cool ponchos and hats (we took great photos!), and the Mongolian restaurant was very specific. You choose the ingredients (meat, vegetables, sauces), and they make you Asian noodles with soy sauce. If you're not a fan of Asian cuisine, then there's nothing for you there. There are also main restaurants with buffet-style dining. The selection is small, but since we were only there for a week, we didn't get bored. You can eat in the main building or at the cafes on the street, but there are just too many flies in the latter! Crowds! Hundreds of flies! I don't know why, but it's impossible to eat outside during the day, so we tried to have lunch in the main building. Drinks. There are many cool bars on the hotel grounds. The system, in my opinion, is very confusing. In one, they serve basic drinks like soda, ayran, beer, and wine. In another, they make cool cocktails. In a third, you can have tea/coffee and eat pastries. In a fourth, you can have champagne. And so on. Moreover, they are all spread out across the grounds, which was inconvenient. You're lying on the beach, and you want to have tea, but the nearest bar doesn't have tea, only cocktails. You don't want cocktails, but you want champagne? No problem, but you'll have to walk about 7 minutes from the beach to the special Champagne bar or to the buildings because champagne is only available there and not at the beach bars. Honestly, I don't understand why there are such complications? Why can't you have champagne in every bar? Why can't each bar have a teapot for tea or put ayran in the refrigerator with the juice for cocktails? By the way, all the cocktails are really cool. Service. The staff is simply amazing. Everyone genuinely smiles and tries to please. Animator Mario is great; our son is usually cautious with strangers, but he willingly went to Mario's arms. We went to the children's club several times, and everyone there was also smiling and very friendly. The cleaner, Sackin, deserves special mention. One minute he's in the women's toilet, the next he's at the bar, the third he's cleaning in the restaurant. He always greeted us, smiled, and played with our little one, while working like a bee. Beach and Poolside. Hard to find a spot. We had to reserve spots at 8 am(((( Honestly, I hate it when people do that, but we didn't have any other option. There were four adults and one child. By 1 pm, there were no more spots available at the beach or the pools. Why can't they add more sun loungers? The only place where there were always spots was by the children's pool at the sea, but the water was knee-deep, so the kids had fun (and it was safe), and the parents had to lie down with them in the puddle))))) Evening Entertainment. This is what really disappointed me at Sere. In all the Turkish hotels I've been to, there have always been amazing evening shows. Gymnasts, acrobats, fire shows, magic tricks for kids, mini discos. When I go to Turkey for a vacation, I expect that I won't be bored in the evening, but at Sere we were clearly bored. The hotel has two areas for entertainment: a large amphitheater right by the sea where something big and spectacular with 3-4 people could be organized, and a small area near the Garden bar. In this area, there are only three tables, enough for one person at most. This is not enough for such a huge hotel. We checked into the hotel on a weekday, and in the evening, we went in search of entertainment and found a group from South Africa at the Garden bar. The guys sang wonderfully, and their voices attracted hundreds of guests, but they left disappointed when they realized that there was nowhere to sit. At first, I couldn't understand why, with such a huge amphitheater, the evening program takes place in a tiny area. It turns out that the hotel rents out its amphitheater for weddings, corporate events, anniversaries, and engagements. So, when there is a wedding in the hotel (we saw at least 3 during our week-long stay), the hotel guests are offered to hang out in the tiny area near the Garden bar. If you don't come there an hour or so before the start, you won't find a place to sit. The evening program starts at 9:30 PM and was mediocre. The first night, the group from South Africa performed (they were great!), the second night was just a disco without any preliminary show (serious club music, our grandparents were clearly bored), the third night was karaoke night (we listened to one minute of songs by popular local singers and were shocked), the fourth night was a vintage disco (the group sang awfully, almost all

I have stayed at the hotel twice and have never been disappointed. The first time was in October 222, and the second time was in May 223. The hotel is a solid 5, not a luxury one, but everything matches the price and even exceeds expectations (I have something to compare it to, I have experience). The hotel is located half an hour's drive from the airport. If you're lucky, they will bring you on the transfer first, otherwise they will go to other hotels first. I like everything, starting from the entrance where guests are greeted warmly with a smile. They help with luggage while you wait for check-in, and in the lobby, they offer various drinks (coffee, tea, juices, beer, cocktails, etc.). Or they will direct you to the restaurants. The reception is always friendly, and if you don't like the room, they will try to find another one if possible (for free!), which I am very grateful for. Both times I stayed in the Elegant building. It has a beautiful view of the city, the sea, and even the waterfall is visible, the higher the floor, the more beautiful it is. The room is large and beautiful, in a classical style (sometimes it's nice to rest your eyes from the "loft-minimalism-hi-tech" style). The rooms and furniture are not new, but in good condition. The cleaning is good, and most importantly, unobtrusive. Whenever they come, it's already cleaned. There was a problem with the television, but they came and fixed it in 1 minute. There are about 3-4 channels in Russian. The room has a large balcony with two chairs and a table, and a drying rack. The room has standard furniture and appliances. The bar always has full replenishment, and we usually drank water and mineral water. Additionally, you can take bottled water in the restaurant on the beach or in the lobby. There are bathrobes and slippers. Shampoos, conditioners, gels, and soap are always available and regularly restocked. At the guest relation desk, you can ask for additional sets (sewing, shower cap, nail file, etc.). I understand that it's a cost-saving measure during challenging times. The guest relation service works efficiently, the girls are great, and they promptly respond to all requests and provide information on how and where to go. They are friendly and responsive. The territory is beautiful. When we first arrived, we got lost and confused because there are so many different zones and corners, all picturesque and perfect for photos. Everything is well-maintained, with many flowers, vases, various sculptures, and sitting areas. The territory is not big, but not small either. The restaurants are great. I won't go into much detail, but everything was enjoyable. There is a wide variety, and we were afraid for our figures, but it's hard to resist. We tried all the à la carte restaurants. Olympus and Sushi were our favorites. We also had desserts and coffee at the coffee shop. They have a champagne wine bar. The beach is quite large, with several zones and umbrellas and tents. Some of the loungers need to be replaced as they are cracked. There is a children's area. The sand has small pebbles, which is comfortable for your feet. The garbage is cleaned in a timely manner. The water was cool at this time (warmer in October), but if you go to the city beach, it seems warmer there. May 223 was not very warm, but out of our 14 days, 12 were sunny. So we only went into the sea a few times, but it was more comfortable to swim in several pools. There are pools with children's areas. Towels are given out and accepted for free in the pavilion on the way to the beach using special cards that are provided at check-in. It's very convenient; you don't have to carry them to your room, and there are always fresh towels available. The animation was impressive! Everything is at a good level and diverse. During the day, there are pianists playing, children's animation. In the evening, during dinner, there is live music in the restaurants and dancing. After 10 pm, there are various concerts and performances. We really enjoyed it! The staff, as expected, is friendly and welcoming. The location in the Lara area didn't bother us. We could easily reach the shopping center and other excursion sites by bus. Luckily, the bus stop is almost in front of the hotel, and there is a schedule of routes on the glass, which we took a picture of and used as a guide. We bought a transport card (I recommend a plastic one) near the nearest pharmacy, which is just around the corner, and regularly topped it up. Planes fly over the hotel during the day, but you quickly get used to it, and we couldn't hear them at night (they said they change the route), or maybe we were sleeping soundly. The Wi-Fi was at a good speed in the room, slightly slower on the beach, and normal speed throughout the area. Since we stayed during a less busy season, the entire stay was easy and enjoyable. I don't know how the hotel handles peak times, but I believe they do it well. I checked the prices during the peak season, and they were about 7-8% more expensive (we booked in March for May, so I think we were lucky with the price). Thank you to the hotel for their hospitality! We wish them prosperity and hope that the level of service will not worsen but will continue to improve.

I have been to this hotel for the third time now, and each time feels like the first. This year, I flew with Fan San and had a night flight, so I arrived early. They took me to the hotel first because it's close to the airport, which is a huge plus. At the reception, they gave me a bracelet and sent me to have breakfast. After breakfast, I went to Terracity for shopping. There was no point in sitting at the reception and waiting for them to give me a room. I came back at 12 o'clock, and the room was already ready. I booked a park view room, and it was excellent - spacious and well-maintained. The bar was constantly stocked, and the cleaning service was great. They provided all the necessary toiletries on time, even shaving kits. As for the food, there was a lot of meat and fish. There were also seafood options, but they were limited, mostly available in a la carte restaurants. I highly recommend the Olympus restaurant, where I tried the most delicious red fish. I enjoyed the night shows - they were colorful with beautiful costumes, and there was even a fireworks display. If you don't like animals and dogs, it's better not to come to this hotel or Turkey in general because Turks love animals and help the homeless. Yes, there will be dogs on the beach because there is a park nearby where Turks barbecue and feed stray dogs. I saw it myself. There is a public beach next to Lara where Turks also feed dogs. And for some reason, the Turkish dogs don't bite Turkish children, unlike what I witnessed with Russian children - a 12-year-old girl and her 4-5-year-old sister were approached by a harmless dog, and the older girl warned her sister not to touch it due to fleas. This raises a question about the parents' influence on how children grow up. I don't think they will grow up to be very kind with such cynicism from early childhood. So, some Russians complain about animals, but you have to understand that Turkey has a different mentality. There is no concept of everyone owes me everything, but there is a concept of helping the homeless and being rewarded in return. As for bedbugs, nobody has bitten me during my third stay in the hotel, including when I stayed at Elegance. There were mosquito bites, but that happened during excursions in Tazy Canyon. Perhaps people confuse the bites with those from mosquitoes? There are many kittens in the hotel, and many children love playing with them. It's a plus for the hotel. The staff is very polite and helpful, especially the bartenders on the beach where lunches are served and where the pier is located. They make great mojitos and cocktails. They remember you and greet you. It feels like coming home to yourself. The entire staff is polite and attentive. If I have the opportunity, I will definitely come back in the autumn.

I will start my review with the flight. We chose the tour operator Pegas and flew with Turkish Airlines. I have to say that it is worth choosing them, as the departure and return flight times did not change, even though we bought the tickets three months in advance. We were a bit worried about the tour operator, as we couldn't find any positive reviews about them, but it turned out to be unnecessary. I will explain why later. The flight was fantastic; it was a huge plane, and we were lucky with our seats. The staff was polite, and we were served a generous meal. They even offered wine for free. Upon arrival, we collected our luggage and quickly found the bus. We waited a bit for the other passengers, and a representative from our tour operator explained the weather conditions, how long it would take to reach each hotel, and shared some interesting information about Turkey. Within 15 minutes, we were already at the hotel. We arrived early, around 9:30 am, and our room was not ready yet. However, the hotel staff informed us that it would be ready in an hour, which was very pleasing since we didn't have to wait until 2 pm like in other hotels. We had chosen a room in the Club building in advance but mentioned that we were honeymooners and would be open to changing to a room in the Elegance building if possible. We spent the hour exploring the hotel's grounds, went to the beach, and found a spot where they offered gözleme (Turkish pastry), and had breakfast. After an hour, we were escorted to our room again, and the hotel staff conveniently took care of our luggage. The room, or as it was called, the "malachite casket," wasn't to our liking. It was all mirrors and green, but the main issue was that it was very small. We couldn't figure out where to put our suitcases, and it was hard to move around. The balcony was also small. However, we were aware of all these issues beforehand, so, as I mentioned earlier, we discussed changing to a room in the Elegance building. Our room was beautifully decorated and charming, so we hesitated to move. We checked with reception for available rooms and, within a few minutes, they gave us the price and offered to show us two rooms to choose from. I won't include photos as there are already many of them available, and all these rooms are practically identical. We immediately chose the first room we saw because it was spacious and, most importantly, had a stunning view. It offered a panoramic view of the mountains, sea, waterfall, and the city. At that moment, we realized our vacation had truly begun, and it was breathtaking. The upgrade cost us around $125 for nine nights, maybe a bit less, I can't remember exactly, but it was worth it. The room had towels, bathrobes, a hairdryer, soap, shower gels, shampoo, a safe, and a refrigerator that was replenished daily with water, Fanta, Coke, and mineral water. The air conditioning worked perfectly and quickly cooled the room. We didn't even turn on the TV. Everything was satisfactory, and everything worked properly. There were a couple of issues with room cleaning; it was quite superficial. They didn't seem to mop the floors; it was irritating that they never wiped the sink area properly. The bed sheets were changed two to three times during our stay, and the towels were also changed regularly, which was great. However, the bedcover, which was used in place of a duvet, took a long time to be replaced. I accidentally stained it with brown cream after sunbathing, and I intentionally made the bed in a way that they would notice and change the cover, but it was unsuccessful. It was only changed after a couple of days. Many people complain about the noise from take-off and landing planes. We didn't understand why. The planes flew above Dudan Waterfall and the hotel, but we didn't even notice them; there wasn't that much noise that people complain about. The hotel grounds were very interesting. It wasn't the standard layout of "building-pool-sea." The design was optimal for hot weather, as you didn't have to walk under the scorching sun. There were flowers, pots, and corners where you could sit and relax. For the first three to four days, I kept getting lost because I couldn't remember where each path led and how to reach certain places. For the girls, there were plenty of spots for photoshoots. The food and bars were good. The food was tasty and diverse, with options like fish, lamb, turkey, chicken, and they even served crab on one day. However, the menu was pretty much the same every day. Only breakfast and lunch had a few new dishes, but breakfast remained consistent. The dinners also had a few new dishes, but most of it stayed the same, only the desserts changed. In July, the fruit selection included apples, plums, pears, apricots, peaches, cherries, and watermelon. However, the plums and apricots were underripe, so they weren't enjoyable; they were hard and sour. There were many bars within the hotel grounds. We only drank beer and wine, which were tasty. It took a lot of effort to get a well-made cocktail. We were modest and didn't demand imported whiskey from the bar, but on one occasion, my husband politely asked for it. They served him an imported one that time, but the next time they agreed and poured their "plastic" whiskey. The bartenders tried their best; especially the girl at the Champagne bar made such beautiful cocktails with skill, but they lacked taste. All the alcohol tasted like some chemical mix with plastic. The best bar was the daytime one, which closed at 4 pm, but I can't remember its name. They served delicious coffee, non-alcoholic cocktails, and you could also find tasty alcoholic drinks, but you might have to wait in line. If you happened to miss breakfast or lunch, you wouldn't go hungry. During the day, you could have a meal at the à la carte restaurant without a reservation, and you could have gözleme and other snacks. By the way, for dinner, we were able to visit each à la carte restaurant once for free (with a reservation). Beach. I must say that it was very hot this July - temperatures reached up to 45 degrees. One day, it was like a sauna outside, unreal to bear. It was difficult not to get sunburned, hard to swim and walk. Despite this, the sea was cold for the first few days. Usually, I would go to Turkey in September-October, which is the perfect time, warm sea and not too hot, but in July or even summer in general, no way. We constantly applied sunscreen and bought hats, so we didn't get burned :) The beach itself was pebbly, not very pleasant for the feet, but on the other hand, there was no sand sticking everywhere. In such heat, you couldn't step without shoes, you would immediately get burned. There was a pier and sunbeds on the rocks with access to the water, as well as a children's wading pool, everything was interesting and convenient in its own way. Finding a free sunbed was a success because, as usual in all hotels, the smartest people would throw their towels on them even in the evening and who knows where they would be. There could be only 7 people in the water, but all the sunbeds were occupied. Somehow, we managed to find free ones, even near the pool. In general, it was perfect to swim after dinner, in the evening, when there was nobody and it wasn't hot. Entertainment. We weren't particularly interested in it during the day, the animators would come and suggest playing some games, but it seemed to us without much enthusiasm. One day, there was a foam party by the pool with drinks, watermelons, decorations, it was interesting. In the evenings, there were also great parties. We only went a few times, but it was a lot of fun, we danced with my husband. One evening, a symphony orchestra and a famous Turkish singer came, it took your breath away, they played songs from different genres, and there was a magnificent fireworks display at the end. By the way, dinners and lunches were always accompanied by live music. Very atmospheric. The spa and hamam in the hotel were on a 3 out of 5 level. That's why there weren't many people there. The hamam was cold and small, the stone was only warm in the center. The jacuzzi was strange, half of it wasn't working and it was icy. The steam rooms were good. It was very convenient from the hotel to take a bus and go to the shopping center and the city in general. We went for a walk in Kaleici and took the funicular, it was very beautiful. Just be careful, their buses drive very strangely, and if they stop somewhere to let passengers off, it doesn't mean that you can get on there. We were almost thrown out of the bus once. If you need to get off at such a stop, you need to press the button, otherwise, it will pass by. You can also exchange money opposite the hotel, there are several exchange offices, but we only found one that offered a good rate and exchanged there. You can also buy things in dollars at Migros and get change in Turkish lira, it's also a good rate. We recommend taking a walk to Duden in the evening, it is incredibly beautiful. You can bring something to eat and drink, there is a large park, you can have a picnic there. Tour operator. On the second day, we needed to approach the counter and meet the tour operator, as usual. My husband went alone and was 5-10 minutes late, so they turned him away and told him to come back the next day. We were a little upset, and the morning was spoiled since we missed breakfast and couldn't attend the briefing, even though we were only slightly late. The next day, we went with the assumption that they would try to sell us various excursions and tell us not to buy anything anywhere else except from them. But it turned out to be wrong! We needed to get rid of such a mindset and listen to what they were offering. That's how we had an unforgettable day in Istanbul. At night, we were picked up by a transfer with a small group of other Russian tourists from other hotels, accompanied by a tour operator's staff member who took care of us everywhere, even checked us in online. The flight was with Turkish Airlines, it lasted one hour, but they still served us sandwiches and drinks. In Istanbul airport, we were greeted by our amazing guide-historian, and we spent the day with her. We visited Topkapi, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, had lunch with a view of the Bosphorus, in the evening, we took a long boat ride along the Bosphorus and then had dinner. We flew back late at night, tired but happy. The all-inclusive tour for two cost 4$, expensive or not, you decide, but it seemed like a pretty good price for such an adventure, we didn't have to pay extra for anything, even the entrance tickets were included. We also enjoyed shopping at the duty-free inside. We checked out of the hotel on time, nothing changed, we vacated the room, left our suitcases in the storage room (for free), you can also weigh them there, and we calmly continued our vacation. We were picked up last from the hotel, which was also good, straight to the airport. In conclusion, we can say that we really liked the hotel, but it seemed like there was always something missing everywhere. Everywhere there was a "but". In the food, at the beach, in the cleaning, in everything. So our impressions were a bit mixed, but overall, we were satisfied with the vacation and will definitely recommend this hotel.

I will try to be brief. Let's start with the flight. The Pegasus flight was delayed by 5 hours. We were supposed to depart at 2:20 but we only took off at 7:38. At the check-in desk, they provided water, but no hot meals were offered for such a long wait. Other airlines fed their passengers, even for less significant flight delays. When we landed, we had to wait for our baggage for an hour, which was a very long time. We arrived at the hotel at 13:45 and were given our room immediately, but that's a separate story. The room is located in the farthest corner of the hotel (it's categorized as a "park" room). The room itself is spacious, but it only has one bathroom with one sink for four people. There are two rooms and two windows, but these windows overlook the road where cars constantly pass by, and in the evening, dogs often bark. We wanted to change rooms and they offered us one on the 3rd floor, but it was terribly small, with only one room with a double bed and two alcoves with single beds. There is no view from the windows at all – one window faces a solid wall two meters away, and the other window faces the wall of the neighboring hotel. They claimed that there were no other available rooms. In the end, we decided to stay in the first room. At the reception, they promised to move us to a different available room in 4 days. We went to see the other room after 4 days – it was on the 7th floor with a view of the sea (although the sea was far away), but beneath the windows, there was the roof of the reception area with ventilation, and the room itself was smaller than ours. So we finally decided to stay in our original room and not move anywhere else. The minibar was restocked every other day, not daily. We reminded them a couple of times, but then we also gave up and stopped asking for it. The hotel grounds are very small, everything is cramped, the paths are narrow, and there is nowhere to go. And there are so many people, a lot of them. There is nothing for older children – no playgrounds, no water slides (the slides that look like water slides in the photos are just a joke, they are only 1.5 meters long and provide no enjoyment). Everything is crammed together – shops, bars, à la carte restaurants – which means there is no free space. The cocktails in the street bars all taste the same – flavorless. Ice cream is only available for two hours during the day, and the bartender scoops it into cones. They offer white, pink, and chocolate flavors. There is no ice cream packaging at all, which is a big downside. Although the location of the hotel is close to the airport, it is not on the beachfront like in Kundu, for example. It's a standalone hotel surrounded by residential buildings and city beaches. There are no other hotels to the left or right, only apartments. Regarding the food in the main restaurants – there are no complaints. There is a wide variety of food available and no queues. However, there is no baked goods, we only saw croissants once. Everything else is just some monotonous buns with the taste of white bread. There is also no red fish (salmon, trout) available. We tried the à la carte restaurants Sushi and Olympos. We liked everything, no complaints there. The beach is dirty; they don't clean it or empty the garbage bins under each beach umbrella. Papers, napkins, cups, and straws can lie there for two days. The tables on the beach are never cleaned or wiped down. Although if they were simply cleaned with a melamine sponge, they would look brand new. The plastic chairs are the same story. There is no room cleaning; they only provide cleaning supplies, change towels, and make the beds. The toilet seat wasn't cleaned at all – it's all yellow (although it would quickly come off with some chlorine-based cleaner). That's it. In conclusion, it can be said that this hotel claims to be luxurious but falls short of 5 stars and does not justify the price they ask for it.

Dear holidaymakers, if you haven't been to this hotel before, it is definitely worth a visit. 1) Accommodation: We had booked the "Elegance" room. We arrived at the hotel at 9am and were accommodated immediately. Our room had a partial sea view. During our stay, we noticed that many people had to wait until 2pm for their rooms. Apparently, there were no available rooms. 2) Staff: Polite and friendly. We needed to extend our room on the day of departure, and it was done without any problems for an extra dollar per hour. 3) Room cleaning: It was done daily. However, like everywhere else, we left tips to ensure our room was cleaned by 11am. We usually left for the beach at 12pm and wanted to return to a clean room. One time we forgot to leave a tip, and our room was cleaned at 3:15pm. 4) Mini-bar: It was restocked daily with water, juice, cola, and Fanta. All complimentary. 5) Beach: Plenty of space for relaxation. It's very convenient that different areas are designated such as the main beach, children's area, pier, and amphitheater zone. There are always enough sunbeds available. Of course, if you arrive at 7-8am, there is more choice. But even if you arrive at 12pm, you won't be left without a sunbed. Towels are provided or changed from 7am to 6:30pm near the champagne bar. 6) Grounds: Beautiful, large, and well-maintained. There are many secluded areas where you can sit quietly. 7) Food: Excellent with a wide variety of choices. Meats include lamb, chicken, turkey, beef, and liver. Fruits include watermelon, cherries, apples, pears, apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums, and oranges. All kinds of side dishes and a variety of vegetables. There are two types of soup, one of which is always borsch. Fried fish, anchovies, mackerel, and crayfish are also available. The pastries are exceptional. And for those with a sweet tooth, there is an abundance of desserts. I particularly enjoyed the cheesecakes. During lunch time, there is always live music entertainment. Next to the beach area, there is a snack bar where you can get pizza, ice cream, and flatbread at certain times. 8) À la carte restaurants: The hotel has four free à la carte restaurants. It's worth visiting them for variety, especially because most à la carte restaurants in the Kundu area are not free. We made reservations for all four restaurants. I recommend making reservations upon arrival. You can make them with a hotel staff member located on the left side of the main entrance next to the Pegasus counter. They will give you a card with the restaurant name and the time of your reservation. You must show the card at the entrance of the restaurant. - Mongolian: Select the ingredients for your dish, everything is raw. I chose mussels, squid, shrimp, mushrooms, tomatoes, garlic sauce, and Japanese noodles. My partner chose turkey, zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms, and Japanese noodles. We also made our own salad. Watermelons are served for dessert. There is no menu here. You bring your plate to the chef, and he cooks it on a large open table in front of you. Soy sauce is added. The result is a delicious udon. The drinks are the same as at the bars. - Italian: A classic Italian restaurant with a menu. Delicious food. You can choose one item per category per person (one pizza, one salad, one main course, one pasta, and one dessert). The drinks are the same as at the bars. I recommend the shrimp, fish, mushroom pasta, and seafood pasta. We didn't have pizza as we couldn't finish it. There is a violinist playing in this restaurant. - Japanese: A menu-based restaurant with unique dishes. Excellent sushi rolls. You can choose one item per category per person (one sushi roll, one salad, one main course, and one dessert). I recommend the "Philadelphia" and "Canadian" rolls, Peking duck, shrimp in garlic sauce, and fried ice cream. The drinks are the same as at the bars. - Mexican: A menu-based restaurant. You can choose one item per category per person. I recommend the salmon tartare, grilled shrimp, and quesadillas. In this restaurant, you can wear a national poncho, put on a sombrero, and take cool photos. Overall, we enjoyed the restaurants. The food was interesting, varied, and tasty. 9) Bars: The champagne bar opens at 6pm. My husband enjoyed champagne and a cocktail with Aperol. They prepare everything beautifully. There is a bar across from this one that makes milkshakes and fruit cocktails, which are also delicious. 10) Entertainment: The entertainment team is large, active, and not intrusive. There are various sports games available, although there was no volleyball. There is a children's entertainment program, and many areas where pilates and dances are held. On Sundays, there is a wonderful performance by a symphony orchestra with fireworks. I recommend attending. Every evening, there is a program with parties and live music. We also had a foam party during the day. 11) Sea: Fantastic. We swam with masks. There are fish, and we even saw a turtle. 12) Animals: There is a large lawn with turtles in the hotel. You can touch and feed them. Yes, there are many cats in the hotel and 4-5 dogs on the beach. This is welcomed at the hotel. The animals are not intrusive. I am not a dog person, but they won't approach you unless you engage with them. If you don't like animals, then you should consider this. Cats may lie on chairs and tables in the outdoor bars. 13) Doctor: Due to my health condition, I need to periodically have my blood tested for certain indicators. I went to the clinic through the hotel's doctor. Everything was great. They provided a transfer from the hotel. There was assistance at the clinic. The test results were sent to my email within 2 hours. It was affordable. 14) Outside the hotel: There is nowhere to go. There is a supermarket nearby. The waterfall is a 4-minute walk away. You can take a taxi to the city center. We went to the "Mall of Antalya" shopping center. "Dipo" is also nearby. Based on my experience, I always go here. It's the largest and more affordable compared to "Terra".

We vacationed with family (without young children, so I can only comment on the children's program and entertainment from an observer's perspective) from July 27th to August 6th. We arrived later than planned (a 3-hour delay of the Corendon Airlines flight, about 2-3 minutes to get to the airport), but before 2 p.m. we checked in at the reception desk (had a conversation with Maria, in her absence there is a man behind the counter who also speaks Russian (unfortunately, I don't know his name), the rest of the staff speak English, but understand a little Russian, as we had no problem agreeing to have additional blankets brought to our room). We received wristbands and proceeded to have lunch. During check-in, we were offered two options - a room on the 1st or 4th floor (Park building), and we immediately chose the 4th floor (room 643) and in general did not regret it (BUT!! I recommend that if you have such an offer at the reception, first ask to see both rooms and then decide!!). Room: Park building, 4th floor, room 643 (left wing - regarding this point, the Park building is conditionally divided into two wings - left (with a small number of rooms (4 per floor), spiral staircase, elevator, a total of 4 floors) and right (with a larger number of rooms, elevator, staircase, but already 7 floors, so it is practically impossible to move alone in the elevator)). Our room consisted of two separate rooms and one bathroom. The room had large windows, so it was bright, but the view opened onto a neighboring hotel or something similar, where renovation was taking place during the first few days of our stay, so we could see forests and construction workers from the window, but it didn't bother us much as the curtains didn't allow us to see anything and we couldn't hear anything from what was happening in the hotel (discos, shouting, etc.) - it was exceptionally quiet. There are two air conditioners - one in each room - they work well, but it is warmer in the room with the double bed as the air conditioner is located near the door and cools not only the room but also the corridor. There are no complaints about the furniture, and the plumbing is also satisfactory (the only thing is that the faucet in the bathroom (combined bath and shower with a sliding glass door) is oddly designed: the water tends to splash onto the edge of the bath instead of flowing where it should) - there are two showers (one fixed and one handheld, both work). There are two wardrobes (one in the hallway, one in the room with two separate beds, but !! there are not enough hangers !! only four in each wardrobe), and there are no hooks anywhere, so we had to hang towels wherever possible, but not where they should be. There are two televisions with a large number of channels, but mostly foreign (there are several Russian news channels - Russia 24, TNT, etc.). Balcony!! - specifically in our case, the balcony turned out to be shared by four rooms, with two entrances, and there were four drying racks on it that were on their last legs. *on the first floor, which was also initially offered to us, each room had a separate balcony, but they were not separated from the adjacent walkway (just a very small partition), so all passing guests could peek into your room and balcony. Cleaning and minibar restocking: the bedding on the beds was fresh and pristine, but there was only one blanket on the double bed (we asked for another one at the reception and they brought us two), the towels were changed daily, and the bedding was probably changed every two days (I can't say for sure because the beds were remade each time, but the bedding may not have been changed...), they even made a heart shape from towels with flowers once, although we only left a tip once (right after that). The woman who cleaned our room was very friendly and welcoming! If there was any issue that needed to be resolved, she used the Yandex Translator on her phone to communicate with us. The floor was also cleaned daily (the only complaint is that the doors were never washed - there were water drops and some streaks on them, but it didn't bother us much). There are two refrigerators in the room, and they were restocked daily (missed once), a few bottles of water (small ones), Coca-Cola (1 bottle), Fanta (1 bottle), two bottles of different brands of mineral water, and two packets of orange juice were included. Food: the restaurant where breakfast and lunch are served (live classical music during lunch) is on the second floor of the main building, it is a large space (two rooms - one large and combined with the buffet, and one small). The food is delicious, there is a wide selection, and there is a diet table (boiled carrots, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, zucchini, peas, corn). There are two coffee machines, but there are issues with tea - there are no tea bags, only loose tea in large metal kettles (I only found black tea and it was very strong). Throughout the day, you can eat on the hotel grounds (for example, near the main pool) - there is also a smaller buffet (correspondingly, with a much smaller variety), gözleme (Turkish stuffed pancakes), and ice cream. Dinner is served at an open-air restaurant (+live music), and in the evening, they prepare additional dishes in addition to the main buffet (crayfish, shawarma, baked potatoes with various fillings, etc.). We hardly used the bars on the premises, but the lobby in the main building has a decent selection of drinks (including non-alcoholic ones). As for the à la carte restaurants on the hotel grounds, we only visited the sushi restaurant (and after that, we somehow lost interest Beach: There are plenty of sun loungers on the hotel grounds, but everyone gathers in a bunch on the main beach, so the sun loungers there are occupied early in the morning (6 am). The beach entry is covered with small pebbles, but there is some sand further away. The sea entry can be challenging for retirees as the shore has eroded in recent days and it has become difficult to get out of the water. The beach itself is small (even tiny), so there are quite a lot of people, but there is also a separate entry from the pier (+two separate staircases) where it is less crowded. In the first week of August, a huge crowd of tourists arrived, and the beach became noticeably dirtier, although we didn't notice any unnecessary litter before. Many people noticed dogs walking on the beach, which we ourselves confirmed, but they don't bother people and live on their own (+all of them have colored tags on their ears). Hotel grounds: As others have already noted, the paths on the hotel grounds are indeed very narrow, making it difficult to pass others, but overall, we didn't feel that there was a lack of space. There is always a place to sit quietly without a crowd waiting to take your spot. Everything is green, turtles crawl around, and there are many photo zones. There are lots of cats and kittens living on the hotel grounds. Entertainment and paid services: We didn't use any paid services, so there are no comments here. We also didn't attend any events, but the animators actively (but not intrusively!) invited guests every day (Sunday was a day off) for activities like yoga, darts, ball throwing, aqua aerobics, etc. They also gathered children on the beach (with their consent, of course) and took them somewhere with the animators from the mini-club. In the evenings, they organized discos with different themes and there was a mini disco for children. A few times, some musicians/bands/orchestras came, but we were usually in our room during those times. Outside the hotel: There is a Migros supermarket five to seven minutes away from the hotel, as well as souvenir shops, etc. But if you plan to go out and take a walk, you won't have many options. Guests: 5% Russians, 5% foreigners. In general, the hotel left us with pleasant memories. Of course, there were some criticisms, observations, and shortcomings, but they didn't stand out too much against the overall positive experience, so we recommend it for a vacation.

Great hotel! We stayed at the end of July in the year 223, so this review is fresh! When choosing a hotel, we read many reviews and had doubts, but we decided on Club Hotel Sera and did not regret it! The hotel is located in the Lara area, and it is the only one in this area, which means that there are various shops, pharmacies, and public transportation around the hotel, which can be used to travel to the center of the old city of Antalya. It's only about a 2-minute drive from the airport. The hotel is very clean, with beautiful decoration and furnishings, and the staff is polite and friendly. We were brought in at 1 am, but we were already given bracelets, and even before checking into the room, we could use all the services. The hotel is all-inclusive, with drinks replenished in the minibar every day. There are 4-5 pools on the hotel grounds, including one with seawater. There are many bars - both in the lobby area, where you can get tea, coffee, smoothies, and various drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), as well as on the grounds, where there are open and closed bars, including a champagne bar that focuses on champagne. If desired, you can buy a bottle of imported expensive alcohol. There are also 4 à la carte restaurants (Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Mongolian), all of them free, but they need to be booked in advance at the main reception desk, we visited all of them, but I highly recommend the Italian one, the food there is fantastic! The food options for breakfast and lunch are available inside as well as outside, and dinner is served outdoors with music, with a huge selection of food! The evening entertainment is amazing, with live music, DJs, themed parties, a symphony orchestra in the amphitheater, and after parties. The sea is pleasant and clean, the beach is sandy-pebble, and the water is clear. There are plenty of loungers and entrances to the sea - the beach itself has tents and umbrellas; a small beach, usually for children, as it is not deep; on the rocks with 2 staircases directly into the sea; and a pier with 2 access points. In the distance, there are yachts and boats. If you are also a fan of the underwater world, swimming with a snorkel there is simply a pleasure, with many different fish, we even saw stingrays, crabs, and squids! There is also a free tennis court where you can borrow rackets. Billiards is available for a fee (as it is everywhere else). Spa services seemed expensive, but that's all due to the exchange rate... Airplanes fly over the hotel, sometimes closer, sometimes further - at first, it disappointed us, but then it seemed cool, with a lot of action. The rooms are clean, nice, and not old. There are no bedbugs (as mentioned in some reviews). I read reviews and prepared myself that I would have to pay for internet, BUT Wi-Fi is free everywhere! When checking into the room, you are given a piece of paper with instructions on how to connect to Wi-Fi - no problems with that. We went on 2 excursions, one was very early, and we wouldn't have made it to breakfast, but you can order a takeaway breakfast and pick it up at the reception in the morning when checking out! The only downside we found is the cats and dogs on the hotel grounds and beach, there aren't many, but they are still there, but we didn't pay much attention to it. Overall, it is a wonderful hotel with a beautiful well-kept area, a good selection of dishes, and a great sea! I recommend visiting!

I want to start by saying that it was my first time in this hotel, but my sister and her family, with whom we were vacationing together, were there last year. They liked it and decided to go there again. Personally, I have been to Turkey more than twice, in both cheaper and more expensive hotels. Overall, I never nitpick, as long as it is clean and tidy, comfortable to sleep and take a shower. I arrived first (the rest of my family arrived the next day), after a night flight, the journey from the airport took about 3 minutes. I arrived at the hotel around 9-1 am. The voucher specified: a French bed if possible, a sea view if possible. The receptionist asked me if a French bed was essential for me, if yes, I would have to wait for 14 hours, but if two separate beds were acceptable, I could check-in immediately. Tired after the flight, of course, I chose to check-in immediately. The room was in the "Club" building. The building had its own lobby on the 1st floor, which was nice, although I never used it. Upon entering the room, I was a little disappointed. I'm not one to nitpick about every little flaw, but the room was VERY tired and very small. But since I only planned to sleep and shower there, I thought it would be fine, and based on the assumption that other rooms would be similar, I did not ask to change, which I later deeply regretted. The bed linen was also gray and worn-out. I thought that if I left a tip, they would clean better and maybe put fresher bedding. After sleeping after the flight and unpacking my suitcase, I discovered a dried-out piece of gum stuck to the headboard of the bed. Hoping for the tip and tomorrow's cleaning, I decided to overlook these negative moments and start enjoying my stay. The hotel itself and the grounds were very nice, the staff were friendly, and the food was quite delicious (don't expect delicacies, but a standard, reasonably varied all-inclusive menu). The next day, I left a tip and they did provide slightly better bed linen, tidied up, and changed the towels. Later, my sister and her family arrived, and I went to their room (a family room in the main Elegance building) and was amazed! It was like night and day compared

We had a family vacation from May 14th to May 21st, 223rd year, and I want to say a huge thank you to the staff at Club Hotel Sera. The entire staff was friendly and polite with us (the food and the beauty of the hotel do not impact the vacation as much as the friendliness and kindness of the staff). I want to express my special gratitude to two waiters: Baran and Abdurakhman (they are in the photo), these are exactly the guys who are worth coming back to this hotel for! They served us at dinner throughout our stay, and our whole family would like to express immense gratitude to them for that ?? Such friendly, humorous, and attentive waiters we have never met before. Thanks to them, we have warm memories of this hotel and we really want to come back, even just for one more dinner ????

Hello everyone! This was our second time staying at Sera and the hotel definitely deserves its 5-star rating. We were highly impressed with the food, alcoholic drinks, beach, and entertainment. In short, if you have the option to choose a room, I recommend staying in the main building as they are spacious. We stayed in a club room and, to be honest, it was very cramped. The room was small, the bathroom was extremely tiny (apologies for the details, but when sitting on the toilet, your nose practically touches the sink), and it was impossible to turn around in the shower. The balcony also had a very narrow passage. But we managed to overlook these room drawbacks as we only used the room for sleeping. For those who are interested, there is good quality strong alcohol available at the lobby bar and the club building bar. The internet connection throughout the hotel is excellent. Overall, the hotel gives off a very well-maintained impression. There are many secluded spots where you can sit quietly with a glass of whiskey. Thanks to all the staff at Sera Hotel for a successful vacation.

Hello!!! We stayed at the hotel from June 18th to June 25th, 223. A family with a three-year-old child. Everything started well... we were given an "excellent" room (or so we thought). Of course, there are no complaints about the service, the bartenders are great, all the waiters are friendly and cheerful. The beach is perfect for children. There are always available spots on the beach at any time. The food is not the best (specifically compared to other hotels), but you won't go hungry. I would give it a 4 out of 5. The alcohol is decent. Some imported drinks are not included and require payment. It all seems nice and decent, BUT!!!! On the last night, before our departure, we woke up covered in bites... they were bedbugs!!!! It's horrifying... a 5-star hotel!! People, think carefully before going there. Now, we are treating our home for several days, in case we brought them with us. In case anyone is wondering, we stayed in room 163.

There are only two possibilities with this hotel. Either it will conquer and enchant you, or you will see the "old Mercedes" as some have written in reviews, and nothing more. With Sera, it was love at first sight for us. I have the opportunity to compare it with hotels in more than 3 countries, and other hotels in Turkey. Sera is a fairy tale come true and Alice in Wonderland. Yes, I love mirrors in gilded frames, pink chairs, crystal chandeliers. I love mixing different styles, like cacti here, and Greek amphorae around the corner. Even the attempt of a Turkish receptionist to put us in a different category room (standard instead of family) did not spoil the impression. They took us to the room, but the bellboy didn't take our suitcases. And I understood why) when we refused to stay in a room of a different category, after 4 minutes we received what we paid for, and then our things were brought. They say the Turks often use this trick in case the guests don't understand. Yeah. Everything in this hotel looks very organic, including the narrow paths disappearing into the greenery. We stayed in the 5-story Park building, in a two-bedroom family room. There is an arch between the bedrooms, and the air conditioner is in the room with the double bed. There were no bathrobes and there was a shortage of towels upon check-in, but this issue was quickly resolved with the housekeeping staff. I recommend approaching them and giving them a tip. It's more effective than the reception. Also, read carefully in advance what amenities are provided in the room you choose, it is stated on the hotel's website that not all room categories have a kettle. We didn't have one. But we didn't feel the need for it either. You can drink coffee, tea, and get water everywhere. The cleanliness, housekeeping, and everything else was excellent both in the room and in the hotel. The only thing is that the waiters at lunchtime don't have time to clean and prepare vacant tables, but that is also solvable - you can take cutlery yourself and take an available table. Dinner is served in an open space, an outdoor restaurant. The food is excellent, there was lamb and several types of fish, and a lot of desserts. We didn't feel a shortage of watermelons or cherries. People were piling cherries on their plates, and they never ran out). In the middle of July, all the bars were open, and the draft beer Tuborg was delicious. They bake flatbreads from 11 am. Ice cream is served at 2.30 pm. In the evening, they make honest and beautiful cocktails at the Garden bar. During the day, you can have a drink at the beach bar and the main pool bar. There is also ayran there. My favorite is the Champagne bar, open from 6 pm to 10 pm, where the girls create works of art. In some reviews, people complain about the planes flying over the hotel. Yes, they do fly. But to say that there is loud noise - no. In Egypt in February, planes flew over the hotel, and that was really frightening. Here, you don't pay attention. There are also mentions of an "abundance of dogs" in the reviews. I saw one red and one black dog. That's it. There are also cats, hedgehogs, and turtles living here. They are all peaceful animals. I want to separately mention the shows and the entertainment for adults. This includes live music during lunch (a pianist plays), artists on the evening stage, and themed parties. Everything is at a high level! I can't say anything about the kids' club - our son didn't go there. I didn't see any water slides, so it seems like the hotel is not designed for children's entertainment. There are plenty of beach towels, and there are enough sunbeds for everyone, although there are a few on the pier. But on the main beach, you will definitely find a place, even if you come later in the morning. We went for a massage at the hotel's spa center, and had a Balinese massage with Putu, an amazing therapist. Highly recommended. We took a taxi to the Mall of Antalya for 3 lira one way, about 2 minutes of travel. There are a few negatives about the hotel in my opinion: - Creepy "funeral-like" roses in vases on the tables in the main restaurant. They don't fit in with anything. - An abundance of flies in the snack bar area by the pool. Breakfast is served there from 8 am, and it is impossible to enjoy it because of the flies. They say they appeared only this year. - Faulty umbrellas with torn canopies (umbrella number 2) at the cost of rent of 3 euros per day. And even if you want to use it, a staff member will come and say "this is taken." No, the hotel doesn't put tags saying "reserved" (why?). They just decided to kick out the guests. The Wi-Fi coverage in the rooms is weak. On the premises, in the lobby, and in the restaurant, there are no issues. In summary, the hotel is worth the money, the food is excellent, the drinks are good, and the vacation is great.

Our vacation started on June 22nd, 223, with a flight from Uralsk, Kazakhstan on Fly Arystan airline. We reached the hotel in just 2 minutes from the airport, we had never arrived at a hotel so quickly before. Check-in at the hotel. We arrived after 2 PM and were immediately provided a room in the Club building on the 5th floor, just as I had booked. We left our suitcase at the reception, and a guy went to escort us, I thought he would take us to the room. BUT he led us to the escalator and pointed downwards to another building. Both my spouse and I were pleasantly surprised, where should we go? Luckily, when I was choosing the hotel, I watched a lot of videos and had a general idea of where to go. We went on our own, thinking if I couldn't find it, I would go back to get a "guide". But we found it on our own. While we were examining and marveling at the room, another guy came and brought our suitcase. The view from the room was of the sea and Garden 99 where dinners take place. Overall, the staff is very friendly, they always greet you when you meet. If you order something a couple of times, they remember and offer it. Breakfast and lunch are served in the main restaurant, but dinner is in an open-air restaurant. You can have lunch in the snack restaurant and in the Olympus restaurant, according to the menu. The food was great, there was beef, turkey, lamb, fish, watermelons, cherries, grapefruits, as well as apples and pears. You could order different cocktails, including champagne cocktails, and ayran was poured into glasses, just like beer. The territory is large and beautiful, with paths leading to many beautiful corners where you can take pictures and just sit in the evening. There are pool chairs with thick mattresses and pillows near the seawater pool, three children's slides, but I only swam in the pool once, so to speak, made my mark. We swam in the sea. It was very transparent. At the beginning of our vacation, the sea was cool for us, but after 2-3 minutes, our bodies adapted and it was normal to swim, and by the end of the vacation, it was even comfortable to go into the sea, as if not wanting to leave. There are three awnings and numerous umbrellas on the beach. You can only find a spot under the awnings early in the morning or closer to the evening. There is also a pier with sunbeds and a descent into the water. Wi-Fi works throughout the hotel, very convenient. Animation. During the day, animators offer to participate in yoga, play darts. In the evening, there are various shows. Overall, we really liked the hotel, I recommend it.

Good day, this is my first review, please do not be too critical. When choosing a hotel, many people, including myself, read reviews about it. There are objective and subjective reviews (from offended or unsatisfied guests). I will try to write an objective review. The road to the hotel really takes 15 minutes, which is very convenient for families with children. There were no problems with accommodation, our room was in the main building, which was very convenient for visiting the main restaurant for breakfast and lunch. In terms of food, there was a decent selection of meat dishes, grilled food, fish, and seafood. Maybe there were not enough fruits, but that's because it was not the season. We visited all the à la carte restaurants. We didn't like the Italian restaurant at all, but we really enjoyed the Japanese one; the dishes were very interesting and tasty. The Mongolian and Mexican restaurants were a matter of personal preference. You can also have lunch by the pool, with various types of bread and ice cream available. There is a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and cocktails. There is live music in the lobby and during lunch and dinner at the restaurant. The staff is friendly, helpful, and responds to requests immediately. The territory of the hotel is large and beautiful, with many photo zones. There is entertainment available at the hotel, but I won't list them all. On the first day, it can be confusing to navigate the paths, but by the second or third day, you can easily find your way and even help new tourists get oriented. There are turtles that roam around the lawn. On the way to the beach, you can take towels. There was enough space on the beach, and you could swim from the pier or from the shore. There are plenty of sun loungers throughout. The only problem on the beach is the dogs, which is mentioned in every review. This is probably the hotel's main downside. They also prevent you from sleeping at night if your balcony is open. It was a bit chilly for a couple of days, so we took a trip to the TERRA-CITY shopping center and a waterfall. There is a bus stop in front of the hotel, it's probably number 9. You can also walk to the waterfall, it's a 4-minute stroll. Oh, and airplanes fly over, but as others mentioned, you forget about them on the second day, they are not bothersome. In the evening, there are discos and various shows, there was even a Turkish singer with a whole orchestra. There is also children's entertainment, but I won't write about it as we didn't use it. There were many children under the age of three, including our one-year-old.

Vacation from 26.4.23 to 2.5.223. Amazing hotel! Very big, beautiful. The green area is quite spacious and there are turtles crawling around. The food is simply outstanding. Lots of greens: parsley, dill, arugula. Very tasty tomatoes and cucumbers. A variety of desserts. The staff is friendly and speaks Russian. Always ready to help and give advice. Excellent entertainment, various shows. Every day you can visit the hammam, sauna, and jacuzzi for free. The room cleaning is good. Perhaps we only found 2 downsides: the airplanes fly very low and there are dogs/cats on the beach. They can be a bit bothersome, but you get used to it. Everything else is top-notch!

Hello everyone) We've been to this hotel for the third time and everything was great again! 1. Check-in. We arrived at the hotel around 8 am, got our bracelets and were offered breakfast. We were told to come back for our room in an hour. We booked an ROH room, but it didn't really matter where we stayed - we've stayed in both the Elegance and Club rooms before, but never in the Park. This time we were given a Club room again (around 9 am). The balcony overlooked the red pool and the sea, it was picturesque. The room was standard, with all the necessary amenities, the fridge was restocked, and it was cleaned regularly. 2. Restaurants and bars. In late April, the main restaurant was open (serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night soup). They also served lunch at the snack bar near the beach, where they had pide, gözleme, and ice cream. There was also one à la carte restaurant - Mediterranean - in the main building. The food was great, we enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As for bars, there was the lobby bar, lounge bar in the Club building, cip bar, beach bar, and Bacchus bar in the Club building (when they had evening events there), and a bar at the disco in the main building. They had a good selection of cocktails, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, as well as a variety of tea, coffee, detox smoothies, frozen cocktails, bubble tea, everything was delightful. 3. Entertainment. There was the usual daily animation (gymnastics, darts, etc.), they played the piano in the lobby, and in the evenings there was a jazz band playing in the lobby or live music/karaoke in the Bacchus bar, and of course, there was the evening disco. We were never bored. However, when the high season started on May 1st, the evening shows were moved outside and became even more interesting, but unfortunately, we didn't get to experience that. 4. Staff. I want to highlight the staff separately - they were very pleasant, the waiters and bartenders were great, they tried very hard and were all friendly and smiling. We smiled back and gladly left tips. 5. Weather and the sea in late April. The sun was shining brightly, we sunbathed and swam in the pool. The pools on the premises were not heated, the water was around 2 degrees, so we swam in them, but couldn't swim in the sea, it was too cold. The only heated pool in the hotel, which was in the spa center, was not working anymore. 6. Useful information. In Turkey, rubles are exchanged for liras everywhere, so we only brought cash rubles with us and had no problem exchanging them near the hotel. We also used our Gazprombank Unionpay card to withdraw cash from ATMs. During our stay, there was a cool spell for a few days, so we rented a car and traveled to Kurşunlu Waterfalls, the ancient city of Perge, and had a fantastic village breakfast in the village of Çakırlar. We also went on our own to Pamukkale. We took a bus to visit the old town of Kaleiçi. To sum up, I highly recommend this hotel. As for the negatives, some guests mentioned the frequent passing planes and the large number of cats and dogs in the hotel, but we didn't consider them as negatives. Wishing everyone enjoyable travels!

Good morning to all vacationers, rested and of course, tourists planning to relax! A brief review of Club Hotel Sera. The hotel is located very close to the airport, a 15-minute leisurely drive. We arrived at the hotel at 21:15, a little late for dinner, but we were instantly checked in with smiles and super friendly service at the reception. They naturally accompanied us to our room. It is impossible to describe the hotel interiors in words, and it is not necessary, they must be seen. The beauty, luxury, and sparkle are simply stunning and enchanting. The variety of drinks at the lobby bar is extensive, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, with 4 types of milkshakes. There is also a lobby bar in the Park building, which is open from 18:00 until 23:00, and it includes a café with a pastry shop. There are many bars, each with its own working schedule, as well as many snacking, appetizer, and relaxation areas. The territory is not large, but very richly filled. On the first day, it resembles a maze with numerous sofas, tables, chairs, and stools. It is very cozy and infinitely charming. There is a large meadow where turtles stroll around. The beach area is huge, with countless places to stay by the sea, but the length of the shoreline is not large. There is a pier. The architectural style of the beach ensemble is also elaborately designed in the Greek style. Breakfast and lunch are served in the main restaurant, while dinner is exclusively in the open-air restaurant. Snacks can also be enjoyed in the snack restaurant and the Olympus restaurant from the menu. During lunch in the main restaurant, a piano plays, and during dinner, there is live music. There is a loyalty card with a complimentary one-time visit. The staff is super friendly, and the waiters and bartenders work diligently. The food is excellent and varied, and the pastry shop is also top-notch. The hotel was very pleasing and left an unforgettable impression. However, there is a small downside to this sweet honey barrel - an airplane route passes directly above the hotel with planes constantly landing at Antalya Airport. Every five minutes, there is the roar of airplane engines overhead. How critical this is, is purely individual, and we didn't bother too much about it, and the noise with the balcony doors closed is not bad. In my opinion, the hotel is perfect for all categories of tourists. I recommend it.

For the 6th time, I am choosing Sera, and I have never been disappointed!!! Sera is a fairy tale!!! Sera is paradise!!! I won't go into all the details as I have written about them many times before and it becomes long, boring, and not interesting to everyone about how I am overwhelmed with happiness when meeting Sera. We arrived at 8 in the morning, had breakfast, and were immediately checked in. Maria, a kind angel, asked at the reception: Higher or lower? It was very pleasant that the staff was trying their best to ensure that guests have the utmost pleasure! Words cannot describe the feeling when everywhere - from the reception to the hotel staff - you are greeted with smiles, like an old friend. They wave, rejoice - Welcome back!!! It's worth so much!!! One lady on the beach told me: well, you paid them! I feel sorry for such people! I am too familiar with smiles for money or just out of politeness! In Sera, they genuinely welcome every guest! Every time I come back from a vacation in Sera, I always write a review about the vacation, thank the staff at the reception, bars, and restaurants. This time, I was very ashamed that I didn't write a single word about the quiet and modest hardworking bee, Hanife Hanım. I want to ask - has anyone ever seen her without a queue? It's unlikely. And despite her hard work, she always smiles with her warm, gentle smile. And she cooks, cooks, and cooks divine güveç, which everyone - both children and adults - adore. A huge request to the hotel management - to reward this modest, even invisible employee who makes a significant contribution to the organization of our tourists' vacation. I bow to her!!! It was very pleasing that this year the steps of the stairs for descending into the water from the rocky beach and the pier were covered with a protective material, which increased the safety of the descent and ascent. Umbrellas, flooring were renewed. Another big plus is that the number of waiters in the restaurants increased this year. The service is simply outstanding! Many thanks to the waiter Abdurrahman! Very responsive and attentive. I won't write about the food - everything was very delicious. Watermelons this time were like sugar! I don't know why, but in 6 stays at the hotel, I have never had cherries, strawberries or medlars. Although it's the peak season and there is plenty of this goodness at the market! There were salads with mussels, calamari, and salmon. Mussels in shells, boiled tongue, delicate chicken pastrami, anchovies, and a sea of various appetizers that you cannot try during your entire stay. On the first day, we met a company of 2 couples (former "our" friends from Germany) at the pier, who have been on vacation for 2 weeks already. As usual, we started sharing impressions. I, as a regular hotel guest, am always interested in the opinions of newcomers. I have never heard so much negativity! And "there's nothing to eat" - they never had soup for all the days!!! And it's not because their breakfast started at 9 after a shot of tequila at the bar, but because apparently, there are simply no soups in the hotel! And besides chicken, there is nothing meaty! The entertainment principle is "entertain yourself." Can you imagine my shock?!!! I am used to the fact that the menus of Sera's restaurants are always at a high level, and here serious people from Germany say this on the first day!!! And then I got upset - I brought a friend with me, whom I have been persuading for a long time to come with me to Sera because paradise is in it. But after a little while, I realized that these tourists belong to the category who are always dissatisfied with everything. Moreover, compared to last year, Sera has raised the bar even higher! I want to talk a little about those moments that have needed improvement for several years. Safety! Safety! Safety! You will never see lifeguards on the pier, rocky, and sandy beaches!!!!!!!! Approximately once an hour, guys in uniforms of hotel staff pass by, but their function is unclear. During our 1-day stay, only 3 mornings had calm seas. The other days, the waves were not weak. But people were swimming, teenagers and young people were diving from the pier. The situation can turn at any moment. Not every tourist will be able to realize and help on time, and at that moment, the presence of lifeguards is invaluable. However, there were none on the beaches in 2019 and until today. I ask the hotel management to take this seriously! Another point. A big request - please remove those shabby vases with a dead piece of artificial flower from the tables in the Royal restaurant. Such a luxurious hall interior, and THIS?! Brrr. Many tourists laugh at this relic of the 80s, and I feel slightly offended, as if it's in my own house. There is a lot of trash on the sandy beach. And although it is known that cleanliness is not where they clean, but where people do not litter, the cleaning on the beach leaves much to be desired. And finally, during check-out. I hand over the keys to Mustafa. As it should be at 12:. He asks: what time is your transfer? I answer that at 16:45. He says: why did you leave so early? You could have stayed in your room. I replied that I see how many tired guests have arrived, they need the room more. It may seem like a small detail, but that last drop warms the soul. My dear employees of my beloved Sera, thank you for everything you do to make my soul belong only to your hotel. I hope that the Almighty will allow me to meet you all again in September!!! Inshallah! I wish you all health, happiness, and prosperity! Bar staff - Ece, Boğum, Eneş, Timur, Melike, Yasemin - you are the best!!! It's embarrassing to say that in all 6 visits, I still haven't learned the name of the pianist who my mother is in ecstasy for - thanks for the mood! Hanife Hanım, may Allah bless your golden hands!

We stayed at the SERA hotel from May 15th to May 22nd as a couple, my husband and I. We were pleased with our vacation. I carefully and thoroughly chose the hotel, as our priorities were a beachfront location, good food and drinks, a room with a sea view, and proximity to the city infrastructure and attractions that we could visit on our own, without guided tours. We ended up getting everything we wanted. Let's start with check-in and the room. We arrived at the hotel around 9:40 am and were greeted by a porter who carried our luggage to the reception. They checked us in immediately, without waiting until 2 pm. We quickly received our wristbands, were given an overview of the hotel's concept, and were wished a pleasant stay. We were given the exact room that I had requested in my correspondence with the hotel (we booked an Elegance room, but I asked for a higher floor, a room with a larger balcony, and a sea view). The room was decorated with swans and rose petals (I had informed the hotel about our wedding anniversary). The room was spacious, beautiful, had all the amenities, and everything was in working order, but the fixtures and furniture definitely needed some updating. There was a safe, a mini-bar with beverages, a large balcony with a stunning view of the sea, the city, and the Duden Waterfall. It was so pleasant to wake up in the morning and enjoy such a view. The room had bathrobes and slippers, and they brought fresh water and drinks to the mini-bar every day. The housekeeping was good, and they changed our towels and bed linen daily. I would like to give a special thanks to the hotel for the anniversary compliments - they brought a beach bag, 2 gift t-shirts, souvenir magnets, and a plate of fruits to our room. It was very pleasant! Thank you! Food: The hotel has many restaurants, cafes, and bars. We went to the main restaurant, ROYAL, for breakfast and lunch. We had lunch once at the Olympus restaurant (à la carte menu, very delicious, until 5 pm), and once at Attalia pool snack near the pool (we were least satisfied with the lunch here). For dinner, we dined at the open-air GAREN89 restaurant, as well as the à la carte restaurants Olympus, Mongolian, and Mexican. Reservations must be made in advance (one day ahead), but you can visit them as many times as you want. Throughout the day, you can have snacks such as gözleme, pide, ice cream, as well as various sweets (pastries, cakes, cookies, marshmallows, fruits) with tea and coffee in various cafes, snack bars, bars, and the lobby. The most delicious lunch, according to our taste, was at the main restaurant and the Olympus restaurant. The most delicious dinner was at GAREN89 and the Olympus à la carte restaurant. Mongolian and Mexican were also interesting to visit for variety! Overall, there was plenty of food for every taste, with different kinds and variations of meat, fish, vegetables, and side dishes. The desserts were very tasty. Only the à la carte restaurants offered seafood (shrimp, mussels, squid). As for fruits, there wasn't a great variety - they had apples, pears, apricots, oranges, and bananas (there were no strawberries and cherries in the hotel at all, only for dessert decoration). But overall, the food was delicious and diverse, and we enjoyed it! Drinks: Throughout the day, you can drink anything you want in the hotel. Water, alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails, tea, coffee, milkshakes, strong and light alcoholic beverages, champagne! We aren't big drinkers, we only have light alcoholic drinks (wine and champagne), so I can't comment on all the drinks, but there were different types of wine and champagne, you have to try and find the ones you like. We found ours. The Champagne bar, the lobby bar, and the lounge bar were especially impressive. The cocktails were also tasty and beautifully presented! The bartenders were great! Beach: The hotel has several beaches. On the left, there is a large sandy-pebble beach with a gentle entrance to the water. On the right, there is a beach on the pier, with steps leading into the water. In the middle, there is a beach with a concrete entrance to the water. And next to it, there is a small bay with shallow water for kids, it has a beautiful entrance, and the water is clean and transparent. So, there are beaches for every

We stayed at Sere for the second time. Just like last time, our vacation was amazing, from check-in to check-out! The rooms were cleaned and towels were changed every day. The food selection was great, with a variety of meat, fish, vegetables, and fruits. There was a wide selection of cocktails at the bars. The resort had a large and cozy area. The beach had small pebbles and there were enough sunbeds and umbrellas for everyone. The evening shows, especially Murat's performance, were very enjoyable. Thank you for the vacation!!!! We will definitely come back!!!!

Hotel benefits include proximity to the airport, a bus stop nearby for all directions, and a pebble-sand beach. Drawbacks: - The last time the room was cleaned was about a year ago and there is dust on the surfaces. - The food in the cafeteria (if you can call it that) is terrible, you can stuff your stomach but also get heartburn, and the same goes for the a la carte restaurant. - The spa center is a disappointment, as the pool has too much chlorine and stings your eyes when you approach it, the hamam is cold and seems to be in need of repair, and the massages are overpriced. - The area is cluttered with various ceramic pots and garden carts with palm trees, making it difficult to navigate. - There is an excessive number of cats and dogs, especially large dogs. - The lobby restroom has a specific unpleasant odor. - Music is playing everywhere and can be quite loud. - The interior design was meant to be luxurious and expensive but ended up being tasteless. A special mention should be made about the New Year's dinner, which required a mandatory payment of 5 rubles. Russians were directed to a separate room (how cute), and the food was served in minuscule portions. The first serving of Olivier salad was half a tablespoon, and there were some questionable salads on the edge of the plate in teaspoon portions. The second serving consisted of a small piece of boiled fish, about 3 grams, topped with one uncleaned shrimp. Then, there was a small sorbet ball and three mini pastries that seemed to be from a cheap assortment. That was it, and if you managed to get the attention of a waiter, you could have some local champagne. Nevertheless, the concert was enjoyable, so thanks for that.

Beautiful well-groomed territory, amazing sea, even despite the fish, they didn't let us get bored, wonderful staff, they are great, they always cleaned up quickly and were very friendly. The food is diverse, there was everything, we went to the Mongolian restaurant and were satisfied, didn't like the sushi, often went to the Italian restaurant, the grilled salmon was very tasty. Of course, the hotel has its flaws, but we came to relax, overall we were satisfied with the hotel. The animation is weak, the hotel is not a party place, but we didn't need that. I recommend this hotel.

Hello, everyone who is reading this review. We traveled with the company Fun Sun. Two adults and a child almost 3 years old. We arrived in the evening, so we were immediately given bracelets and escorted to our room. We stayed in the Park building, in a family room (611) on the first floor with a terrace. The room had two rooms, one single bed and one double bed, a coffee table and 4 chairs, a mirror, a mini bar, and a wardrobe. It was quite comfortable for two adults and a child almost 3 years old. The rooms were of a normal size, not small. The ceilings were high. The bathroom was large, all the plumbing worked and was relatively clean. But if you look closely, there is something to complain about, but is it necessary. There is a lot of lighting and it is diverse, so if you need to put your child to sleep in the dark, you can adjust the amount of light. The blackout curtains darkened well. We hardly turned on the air conditioner in the room, but as many have already mentioned, the temperature is regulated centrally throughout the hotel, and you cannot change it yourself. There was no clothes dryer in the room, but they provided one on the same day upon request at the reception. The mini bar was replenished almost every day, maybe they didn't come for a day or two, or maybe we were already out of the room. The room cleaning was tolerable, you don't really need to look in the corners and under the bed, but overall it was cleaned, towels were changed, and shampoo-conditioner for hair was added. Recommendation: If you have difficult hair, bring your own shampoo and conditioner, the ones there are of low quality. Which is to be expected. About the territory: a lot has already been written here, so I won't repeat it. I'll describe what they have for children. There is a playground near the snack bar and the main/children's pools. There is also a toilet nearby, which is very convenient with little children. The kids club is near the red pool. Face painting, different crafts, drawing on easels, etc. For 3-year-olds, there may not be many activities, but older children should find it interesting. You can leave your child there and go relax by the pool or in the bar. Then they bring them back to their parents as a group. There is a children's pool and a children's beach. It is convenient because you can comfortably lie on a sunbed, entertain the child with toys, and just watch them. The water is shallow on the children's beach, so if your child is not a tiny toddler, it is not necessary to follow them closely. Evening entertainment (mini disco) for children usually takes place at 2:30 and lasts about half an hour. The songs are repeated day after day, so by the end of the vacation, almost all children have learned the moves. The hotel territory is large, with many paths, but we had no difficulties. After a couple of days, we were already able to navigate easily. It may be partially inconvenient for those traveling with a stroller, as there are many stairs in the hotel and not everywhere there are ramps. Sometimes you will have to go around. Food: It is easy for an adult to find something to eat. There is not much variety for children (several types of pasta, kebabs or grilled chicken, french fries, and various pastries like pizza. The only dairy product is ayran. They have yogurt and porridge for breakfast). If your child is a picky eater, it may be difficult to feed them. We didn't have any problems with this. I especially want to mention the Olimpos restaurant, which operates on a menu (modest, but sufficient) from 4 pm to 10 pm. It is very convenient if, for example, you miss lunchtime and dinner is still far away. Plus, they serve a delicious salmon steak with spinach puree. I was willing to go there every day just for that. Staff: They are friendly, responsive, and smiling. I try to be friendly myself and maybe that's why I don't have any problems with the staff. Sometimes I would like the waiters to be a little more attentive (especially in the Olimpos restaurant), but overall, even that couldn't spoil the impression. As for the negatives: I love animals, especially dogs. There are many of them in the hotel, as well as cats and turtles. However, I still believe that animals should not be allowed in the dining areas. Some people were feeding cats and dogs right at their table, and I think that's not right. They could have taken the dog away from the tables and open food and let them eat somewhere away, in an open area. But there is no possibility to make comments to adults, so I just observed and drew conclusions. I would also like them to clean the children's beach more thoroughly. Almost always, the sunbeds were very sandy, and it was necessary to clean them first because it was not very pleasant to come and lie down. Also, the dogs that came and went into the water and did something. Or they would go to the bathroom right next to the sunbed. This is certainly a downside. I would like there to be a person who periodically checks the children's beach and cleans up after the animals more often. At the same time, I note that neither my family nor any of the families with children we were vacationing with had any intestinal disorders. Conclusion: The hotel was satisfactory for our family, of course it could be better, but we had everything we needed, we rested, got a tan, and were satisfied.

We like this hotel for its location near the airport and the center of Antalya. This is our second time here, before that we were in quarantine in 2022. Our room was booked in the Elegance building, but when we arrived very late in the evening, we were placed in a 2-room Park room, number 71. The room was huge, all the appliances worked except for the air conditioner (it should be noted that this is a flaw in all the hotel's air conditioners, it is a centralized system that sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't work at all. This was a significant drawback in this room, as the windows are closed and do not open, and they face the central road with noise and barking dogs). Regarding the food: when we arrived at 11 pm, we were expecting the so-called Night Soup, it's not just a name, they actually serve a night soup at night, it was a disgusting liquid and rolls, that's it, nothing else at all (in other hotels, you can have a proper meal at night). The rest of the food was good, we enjoyed everything, we definitely weren't hungry (especially delicious were gozleme, coffee, and cocktails at the special bars). Drinks: there was a lot of alcohol, my husband got hooked on tequila and Baileys. Entertainment: every evening someone was singing (Murat Alpsu with a symphony orchestra was particularly impressive). There is a good female DJ at the hotel, you can see how passionate she is about her job. Guests: primarily retirees from different countries visit this place for some reason. So, young people might find it boring here. It didn't matter to us, we came to swim and take a walk. Gym and sauna: the gym is always empty, the equipment is only the safest, overall you can work out. The sauna is good with stones, you can have a proper wash. Shops: near the hotel, there is a Migros store (where you can exchange dollars at an unfavorable rate, they give change in Turkish lira. There is also a small shop nearby where you can exchange dollars for lira at a much better rate). A 2-minute bus ride away is Terra City Shopping Center, a great mall with lots of shops and very good prices for Russians nowadays (there is a bus stop opposite the hotel, buses run frequently). Transportation: across from the hotel, you can buy a bus card for 25 lira and top it up immediately (fare is 8 lira). A taxi from the center of Antalya to the Sera hotel costs about 2 lira. Sightseeing: the Lower Duden Waterfall is a 3 km walk from the hotel (especially beautiful at night), and the Old Town of Antalya (Kaleici) is an hour bus ride away. Internet: the hotel now has "free internet" (before, you could only buy it for your stay or it was only available in the lobby bar). There was no internet in our room at all, so we bought a Turkcell SIM card for 4 lira, 4 GB (more than enough for three phones). Guest relations: I praise Jasmine for her prompt assistance with any issues she could resolve. And most importantly, on vacation, you should relax, and there are no problems with that here, especially the turtles are wonderful (I counted 15 of them).

We were staying at the hotel from September 8th to 21st. We enjoyed our vacation in Sera so much that we decided to refresh our memories from last year. We were not disappointed :-) I won't repeat myself - the hotel is worthy and beautiful. The bonus was the opportunity to sunbathe and swim from the pier (next to the Perge beach bar) - there were fewer people compared to the sandy beach. The beach bar itself was a highlight, with an extremely positive and funny bartender :-) This year, we were impressed by the quality of room cleaning (3rd floor of the Elegance building). We left a tip for the housekeepers - our room was cleaned by the time we returned from the beach by noon. This rarely happens in Turkey. All the bartenders and waiters in the lobby, champagne bar were just amazing - very pleasant girls and guys. They already remembered us by the third day and immediately offered us our desired drinks or coffee :-) There were no complaints about the quality of the beverages either. The dry sparkling wine was very good, and there were at least two types of whiskey: Johnny Pedestrian and Highland Queen, French brandy, Aperol... The unpleasant surprise was the replacement of dry wine in the restaurant with Hazar wine - both the red and white were unpleasant, with a sharp vinegary taste and smell. Last year, the wines from the Kavaklidere winery were of very good quality and taste. As for the entertainment, it was weak, just like last year. Unobtrusive. There were a few guest performers during the evening shows, but the staff themselves didn't organize anything, as is usually the case in Turkish hotels. However, the shows by Murat Alpsu with the symphony orchestra were on point! This time, we took a tour to the so-called Turkish Maldives - the volcanic island of Sulu Ada near Adrasan. We bought the tour from the Sezginn travel agency near the hotel. The cost was 2 euros per person (transfer to Adrasan, boat trip to the bays and the island, swimming, lunch on the boat). They promised a 2-hour travel time, but it ended up being 3 hours while they collected participants from all over Antalya. But the voyage was worth it. We didn't regret it once. The beauty was indescribable. I highly recommend it. In short, our latest visit to Sera left us with the warmest memories. Let's gather a group and go for a third time! :-)

We stayed in 22, in 222 with my son. Both times we were checked in immediately upon arrival in the morning (thank you!). We liked everything: the magnificent view of the sea and waterfall, the room on the 8th floor of the main building. The housekeeping was good, they changed and replenished everything on time. Bathrobes, slippers, change of linen - everything was provided. The luxurious decor of the hotel is impressive. The territory is beautiful with many photo zones. The food was excellent and diverse. Sweets, fruits - everything was plentiful. The ice cream was delicious. We really liked the pool with seawater. The bowling alley was not working. The evening shows were interesting. We liked everything. I recommend this hotel.

I go on vacation to Turkey every year, often staying in hotels in Side. Last year, we decided to visit Antalya and we didn't regret it at all. We arrived at the hotel at 8 in the morning and were immediately accommodated in the main building. The hotel's location is not far from Duden Waterfall (about a 35-minute walk), and the hotel grounds are impressive with green lawns, turtles, pergolas, and shrubs. The food variety is excellent. The room was luxurious and the housekeeping was excellent (as long as you leave a dollar every two to three days). Therefore, I highly recommend the hotel and will be going there again in May. 😊

This year, we decided to celebrate New Year in Antalya. We chose Club Hotel Sera as our hotel and we didn't regret it for a second. The hotel is only 1-15 minutes away. As soon as we arrived at the hotel, we could see that the New Year atmosphere was guaranteed. There were lights and decorations everywhere... The interior of the hotel was luxurious and lavish. The hotel was beautifully decorated for New Year, a solid 5 out of 5. We arrived on December 24th and immediately attended a party dedicated to Christmas on the first floor near the lobby. The hall was very beautiful with comfortable couches and chairs. We were given a room on the first floor (which is actually at the same level as the roof of the neighboring hotel). They told us that if we didn't like it, we could change rooms in the morning. The room was spacious and beautiful with a luxurious and comfortable bed. There were many drawers, a safe, a large built-in wardrobe, and a small couch. It had everything we needed. The terrace was stunning - it was huge, as big as the room itself. There was a table, three chairs, and a sunbed. We could see the sea. Of course, if we had a higher floor, the view might have been even more beautiful. But we didn't come here to sit on the terrace, we came to hopefully sunbathe. And we were very lucky, the weather was fantastic - warm, clear skies, and warm sea water... It may have been a bit chilly for some people, but many people, including myself and my husband, went swimming. The food was delicious. There was a lot of meat - chicken, turkey, beef, lamb ribs, and meat patties. There were fried and baked fish, as well as salted mackerel, shrimp, and mussels... Compared to other hotels, the buffet was not very big, but there was everything you needed and everything was tasty. The pastries were amazing. The sea, as I mentioned before, was warm and calm. The entrance was convenient, but it quickly became deep. There was also a beach, which was probably better for children. The hotel grounds were simply amazing. Every step you took, you wanted to take a photo. There were mirrors everywhere, a lot of them. There were also various pots with flowers, without flowers, resembling wine or water vessels, I can't say for sure, but there were a lot of them, they were everywhere. The staff was excellent. The receptionists were very helpful and would assist with any questions. Well done! The room was cleaned every day, and the housekeeping staff did a great job. I didn't notice any issues with cleaning, despite what some reviews had mentioned. Bathrobes, slippers, shower gel, shampoo, and conditioner were provided in the room. The refrigerator was convenient. The mini-bar was a bit strange - they only provided one bottle of Coca Cola, one bottle of Fanta, one bottle of soda water, and three bottles of mineral water, all in small sizes. We were two people in the room, and we didn't like or drink Coke or Fanta, but the amount of mineral water was not enough for both of us. There was a safe, but we didn't use it. The safe was large. The hammam, steam room, sauna, and pool were all working. We didn't use the pool because it was always crowded. We only used the steam room, hammam, and sauna. There were good girls working there, they seemed to be from Thailand or Bali. We didn't have a massage, but I heard that people were satisfied with the massages. There is a Migros supermarket about a 3-minute walk from the hotel, as well as a pharmacy, Bim market, and Sok market about a 6-minute walk away. You can take a taxi or a bus to the waterfall and Terracity Park, which have stops right near the hotel. We walked to the waterfall and took the bus to the shopping center. Cash is not accepted, only Antalya transport cards. We didn't know this, but a girl on the bus paid with her card, and we gave her cash. She told us where we could buy and top up the card. As soon as we got off at the bus stop, we immediately bought the card in a nearby market and topped it up there. Just a regular small market. The weather was simply fantastic. We got tanned, went swimming... It was great! There was no rain at all, it was sunny all the time. It was cool in the evenings and mornings. Since we came during the off-peak season, many bars were not open. The Champagne bar was open and you could always get coffee, tea from a machine, and there were bottles of water available. They also served cheese and meat pies from 11 am. When we arrived at the beach, the lounge chairs and chairs were still packed away. But as the weather was great, more and more people came to sunbathe every day. We sunbathed on the terrace where there were many lounge chairs, and it was not as chilly in the morning due to the wind. There was live music playing all the time in the hotel. In the restaurant, in the lobby. It was great! There was a concert and we really enjoyed the singer. Well done. Overall, the staff tried their best to ensure that even during the off-peak season, people wouldn't be bored. The lobby had everything - cocktails, wine, tequila, milkshakes, Turkish coffee, cappuccino... We arrived on December 24th and there were not many guests, but from the 29th, the hotel was fully booked. The majority of guests were Russians, Germans, and Turks. There was a disco bar, but we didn't go there. New Year's Eve at the hotel was nice. The staff tried their best. However, we didn't like the dinner itself, even though we paid an additional 6 euros for it and thought it would be something special. But the dishes they offered for the New Year

Good day, friends and comrades!!! This review will be interesting to those who are looking for adventures, spontaneous sexual encounters, and new acquaintances! Since we couldn't find a single review that would interest our young brother, my friend and I decided to write it ourselves. We came to this hotel for a one-night stay, we are 23 and 24 years old. That was enough for us! Towards the end, my back started to hurt, but it turned out to be my kidneys and liver. Let's start with our introduction to this hotel. We arrived at the hotel around 10 PM, having successfully consumed 1.5 liters of Metaxa in Duty Free. Metaxa turned out to be stronger. We don't remember the first part of the flight at all. After that, we found ourselves at the hotel. Timurich (you can see him in the photo) greeted us and helped us carry our suitcases, which pleasantly surprised us. The reception desk had the most beautiful and attractive girls who happily engaged in conversation with us (possibly a monologue) and responded positively to our compliments. We were accommodated in the Garden building. Since we immediately made friends, we went to drink whiskey without waiting to be checked in. Metaxa and a bottle of whiskey, as well as a bottle of Bacardi, turned out to be fantastic. After finishing this activity, we started looking for our room. After 4 attempts, going in circles around the red building, the staff at the reception desk offered their help and successfully guided us to our room. Morning. Waking up, we realized that there is no hangover here, and they serve a wonderful detox drink for breakfast (though champagne turned out to be better). For the first 2 days, we were on cocktails, they were simply magical here. On the 3rd day, they just stopped serving us. We made the decision to switch to stronger drinks...vodka, tequila, brandy, rum, whiskey... We drank everything. Alcohol in 1/1 ratio (since we didn't get sick once). As for the entertainment, it is a bit weak in this hotel (possibly due to the end of the season) and not tailored to our age group and preferences. But what can you do, we had to create our own entertainment. After some reflection, we organized a beer pong game at the central pool. The ladies appreciated it, and we had no trouble getting to know them. We formed a group of people of different backgrounds and genders. The best ladies of the hotel spent time with us. Despite the scarcity of peers, we did not regret it at all. We made new acquaintances and connections throughout our vast Motherland. As for the evening programs, there was live music every night. It was fun. Especially when they played songs by Leningrad and Zveri (if you want to impress a lady you like, you can order a romantic slow song for additional tips), which was very pleasing. The reception also had cool and worthy bouquets. It all depends on your resourcefulness and wit. Despite our excessive alcohol consumption, there was always a bar available in any part of the hotel. Even on the beach, which was a great delight. The food was also delicious and available everywhere, but we were more interested in snacks, which posed no problem for us. If you are not completely confident and are afraid of personal contact with the opposite sex, this is the hotel for you. Due to the lack of young males, the girls take the initiative themselves, and it feels like paradise. As for the sexual life, the photo with the turtles captures the essence of the hotel and relationships there, which cannot but please our brother. The guests here are mostly older, and the youth here is up to 45 years old. It's interesting to have a conversation with some important older man who will give you advice for the rest of your life (if you are a decent guy, everyone will love and respect you). The main thing is not to do anything indecent and treat everyone with respect. Here, you can establish a whole infrastructure and avoid troubles in a drunken state. Make friends with the local grandpa "overseeing the pool" and authoritative wrestlers from Azerbaijan. The main thing is to behave politely and decently while being a little tipsy. Unfortunately, condoms are not provided in the rooms, so make sure to bring your own, otherwise, you might bring a couple of souvenirs with you. We overlooked this (knock on wood). We never encountered any negativity and would love to come back here again! We wish everyone good health, lots of positive emotions, and strong spirits! Hugs to all!

We arrived at this hotel after staying in another hotel in the center of Antalya in Kaleici. We wanted a relaxed vacation where we wouldn't have to worry about anything and could enjoy the sea and sun. But that was not the case... Location: It takes about 3 minutes by taxi from the center of Antalya, costing 2 lira. The hotel is located on the outskirts of the city. There are no entertainment options near the hotel. There is a small Migros (store), a cafe that speaks all languages but is always half-empty, a couple of benches with beach equipment, and it is far to reach any major attractions. To put it mildly, there is not much to do behind the hotel. The hotel is impressive: expensive and luxurious, just like in the tour operator's pictures, but everything is worn out, tired, with traces of previous guests. Check-in: We arrived at the hotel at the beginning of the second hour of the day, and we were checked-in immediately and offered to go for lunch. The reception works well. Special thanks to a girl named Maria. We didn't like the standard room on the first floor in a 3-story building because the terrace was passable, and the bathtub leaked (no reaction from the staff), although the room itself was quite big and not too old. The next day we were moved to a smaller room on the second floor in the same building. The room was bright, the rooms were small, the furniture was worn out in some places, the terrace was large, closed, with a view of the neighboring residential house and the hotel's warehouses. The air conditioner worked mercilessly, so we had to cover ourselves with blankets. There was no kettle or iron in the room. We were provided with a kettle upon request. Food: There seemed to be plenty of food, but there was no pleasure in it. For breakfast, there were only buns all with the same taste, butter sometimes ran out and took a long time to be replenished, the cheese was nothing special, eggs and leftovers from dinner for omelets had a long queue, which was a pity to waste time waiting for. We didn't have the opportunity to have lunch there, except for the first day. But the lunch was not impressive. Everything tasted bland, without flavor, even the fish had no taste at all. For dinner, there was fish every day: river trout, seabass, dorado, and once tuna, which was quickly taken. There were seafood once, meat, turkey, a large quantity of raw and cooked vegetables, desserts were beautiful and varied in appearance, but all tasted the same. There was enough food, but all the food lacked flavor and tasted bland. Drinks: water was always available. Wine was poured from 1.5-liter bottles, we tried it but didn't risk drinking it because it tasted like a mixture of vinegar and sugar. We didn't want to experiment with our health anymore. There was no dress code in the restaurant. Both for breakfast and dinner, both men and women in beachwear of not-so-fresh appearance lined up for the feast. It was difficult to find a free table in the evening, especially with pleasant neighbors. Smokers, having found freedom, smoked right next to the tables and leisurely drank wine from 1.5-liter bottles. Beach: Upon arriving at the hotel, the first thing we did was rush to the beach, basically what we came for. And to our surprise, it simply wasn't there! The available space called their beach was quite narrow, with rocks on one side and a boat and jet ski dock on the other side. The sand was dirty with garbage like cigarette butts and sunflower seeds, the sea was dirty with floating plastic bags and who knows what else. There were no available sunbeds, all the sunbeds had towels from phantom sunbathers (as mentioned in previous reviews). But that's not the worst part, compared to the children's beach: I have never seen such filth anywhere. The water was more like a puddle after a heavy rain, and there were pebbles in the water. And I don't mind animals, but it is not acceptable to swim with dogs together with children. There were no changing cabins. After seeing all this, within 2 minutes, we were already in a taxi heading to another beach. Due to the absence of a beach in the hotel, or rather, it cannot be called a beach, we decided to leave the hotel immediately, but Anex did not allow us to do so (but that's another story). To avoid wasting our nerves, we decided to take a taxi to another beach after breakfast and return for dinner.

The hotel is generally good. Value for money. We stayed in a room with a terrace on the ground floor at Family Park (only this room category was available at the time of booking, the third option). The cleaning is not great, but it is done daily. The food is not very diverse, but tasty. The staff seems to be trying, but they are overwhelmed. The animation is unobtrusive. The evening shows are excellent!!! Special thanks for organizing concerts by Murat Alpsu. Considering the pricing policy and all the positives, we would come back. There is a solution for the lack of internet access! We bought a SIM card across the street for 4 lira, it lasted for 25 days)).

Just arrived with a friend yesterday. (Tour company Pegas). Sharing fresh memories. The Sera Hotel consists of three buildings; we stayed in Elegance, a luxurious palace-style building located in between the other two buildings: Sera Club closer to the sea, and Sera Park closer to the road. The room was spacious, everything was working, and there was a side view of the sea from room 127 on the right. The food was diverse and delicious: various types of meat cooked in different ways (grilled, fried, stewed, kebabs); fish (smoked, fried, grilled); sometimes seafood (shrimp, squid, mussels); fruits (watermelon, melons, peaches, nectarines, plums, oranges, grapes, apples, pears, grapefruit); different cheeses, flatbreads, vegetables, herbs, pastries, and more. However, dinner ended at 9 pm, at the Olympus restaurant until 10 pm, and a late-night soup until 1 am. Breakfast and lunch were in the main building, while dinners were in restaurants on the premises. The sea was fantastic, with three pools, one with seawater, although the pool sizes could have been bigger. There were many dogs on the beach, they could have been kept in enclosures. There were also turtles and cats on the premises (guest favorites). In Elegance, there was an escalator that took you from the -th floor to the reception and lobby. Local weddings are often celebrated in Sera. There are many places on the premises with cozy sofas, chairs, tables, huge vases with flowers, beautiful trees, palm trees, bushes, which are well taken care of. Airplanes fly above the hotel (the airport is nearby, a 15-2 minute drive from the hotel). Not far, to the left of the hotel, is the Migros supermarket, a pharmacy, and 3-4 small shops. If you need large shopping centers, Terra City, Antalya Mall, Agora, and others, there is a bus stop near the hotel (bus fare with cards). Wi-Fi is free, but sometimes it was slow. The cleaning was decent, toiletries were provided, and the bar was restocked (water, juice, fanta, cola). Upon request, a kettle is provided in the room, although the tea bags and candies we bought at Migros. They accept the Mir card everywhere (we had Sber and VTB). Sber worked well, but VTB was a disaster - it kept our money. We flew with Red Wings Airlines, and on the return flight, it was delayed for almost 6 hours, we were stuck at the airport, without water or food offered to us. Moreover, during check-in, they offered us for an extra fee (announcement on the monitor) good seats in the cabin and priority boarding, as well as paid food in the cabin despite the flight delay and the rules stating that they should provide meals. But this does not apply to the hotel.

To start with something positive and not create tension right away, I'll begin with the good points! The hotel is located on the beachfront, but the entrance to the sea is very inconvenient as the sand sinks deeply and it's problematic to get out. The territory is large, with many bars and restaurants, but everything is overcrowded, confusing, and one has to go through complex mazes to get to their destination. The food is fine, with options like chicken, turkey, beef, fish, vegetables, and side dishes. As for fruits, they have apples, pears, plums, peaches, watermelon, and melon. In general, there are no complaints about the food. I wouldn't recommend this hotel for families with children. My kids didn't want to go to the kids’ club as they found it uninteresting. The evening entertainment also suffers, with children having the same mini disco every day, just dancing and nothing else! Overall, the hotel management seems to be fans of live music, as the only entertainment available here is live music and nothing more! I'd like to specifically mention the pools in this hotel; for me, they are not pools but three small puddles. How can such a big hotel have such small pools? People have to practically push each other around there. Now, let's talk about cleanliness, or rather the lack of it. We were assigned a family bungalow (even though we booked two standard rooms, but upon arrival, they offered us this option and we liked it). The bungalow has two rooms, two bathrooms, and a living room, all carpeted. However, they never vacuumed or dusted the room, nor did they change the bedding! What's more, when we checked in, we found children's underwear between the wardrobe and the bedside table, and cotton swabs in the living room near the armchair. When something fell under the armchair and the kids looked beneath it, they found candy wrappers and some balloons. It seems that they not only fail to clean during guests' stays but also between check-ins! The interior is impressive in pictures and upon first impression, but it requires constant maintenance, dusting the carved mirrors, and restoring the furniture. I wouldn't say that this is a terrible hotel, but it's not worth the money and is vastly overrated. I have something to compare it to as we have stayed at Innvista Hotel Belec, Belec Beach Resort Hotel, Cesars Temple e Lue, Seashell Resort & Spa, and Sera is at the bottom of this list. Each hotel had its flaws, but none as many as Sera.

Stayed at the hotel for the first time in 2022. I stayed with my child, just the two of us. We stayed in the Club section and everything was great. I fell in love with Sera and decided to bring my older daughter to this hotel. We flew in for 14 nights and only wanted to stay here. We booked the Elegans because they don't accommodate three people in the Club section. The room was nice with a large balcony. But, there was a big problem. Cockroaches in the room! It's the 21st century, for goodness sake! And it's a 5-star hotel! When I contacted the Russian-speaking receptionist Maria (over the phone), she expressed her sympathy for the cockroaches in our room (one was crawling on a bag with our purchases from the mall). She told us they couldn't relocate us because the hotel was fully booked but offered to do a disinfection in our presence. I categorically refused. It was already 10 PM! How could they do it in front of us? In front of me, in front of my children? She also added that it's summer, so there are insects. How could cockroaches turn into butterflies or dragonflies? Two days later, the situation repeated. I called reception again and explained that the cockroaches were now small in the room. We left for the beach and when we returned, we found the wardrobe open. They must have done a disinfection with our clothes hanging on the hangers. Rude! They sent two non-Russian-speaking staff members who couldn't explain anything to me, and I couldn't understand them either! The reception remained silent. The whole stay at the hotel was ruined! I was afraid the entire time that I would bring cockroaches home! There was no water pressure! The regular shower didn't work because there was no water pressure, only the tropical one that my 7-year-old refused to use! The water was cold! There were spiderwebs on the lamps in the room, probably for years. The supposedly clean bedding they changed for us had traces of someone's lipstick (or maybe it wasn't lipstick at all)? The staff was very polite, they were great in the bars and restaurants. But they are Turks. What about our Russian guest relations? They couldn't help anyone, maybe they didn't even want to. I said goodbye to the Club Hotel Sera forever! I regretted coming back here again! I didn't take photos of the cockroaches or the dust on the lamps! Room 1127. Go in, the lamp is on the left, look at your own spiderweb closely. The cockroach corpses weren't preserved, I apologize. The driver who took us to the airport (our flight was changed twice) asked for tips shamelessly. He said, "Tips, please." He had just picked up some people from the Titanic, and a man left something for him. When he handed me the suitcase, he said, "Tips." I said, "Sorry, no cash." And he said, "What? No dollars?" Very unpleasant. The driver was a beggar. He should be ashamed. Sera has lost its position. The hotel owner should replace the Russian-speaking guest relations with Turkish ones and change the cleaners.

Stayed at this hotel for the second time with a friend in May. We were assigned to the 3rd building where it was quiet and nothing disturbed our sleep. The rooms were not too big, but nice. The room cleaning service was good. The territory is beautiful, with many Instagram-worthy spots. Everything is green. There are many turtles roaming around on the lawn. There are lots of bars with different drinks. There's a bar that only serves cocktails and a champagne bar. There are plenty of pastry shops. The lobby bar serves great cocktails and has a beautiful lounge area with comfortable sofas where you can spend a nice evening. In the evenings, there is piano music in the lobby. The food is excellent. There is a beach bar where you can also have breakfast in the fresh air. There is a wide selection of dishes, pastries, and ice cream. Plenty of fruits too. You won't go hungry, you can always find something to snack on. The à la carte restaurants are also good. The entertainment is very good, with Turkish artists and singers performing. The sea is beautiful, with a nice entry. There is a pier. Many pools. There is a separate beach for children. Live music in the evenings. There are shops on the territory, including a jewelry salon with a large selection of items. There's a very beautiful store (formerly a casino) where you can take very beautiful photos. You can take a walk in the city. There are shops nearby. A market is not far away. Fruits are sold near the hotel every evening. The staff is very friendly. We have very beautiful memories. I highly recommend the hotel. We will return again.

We stayed in the Elegance building on the 5th floor and it was infested with bedbugs. Furniture was dismantled in 5 rooms and the staff was searching for bedbugs. We also had bedbugs in room 1518. The hotel management is aware of the issue but does not take any measures to quarantine the floor and exterminate the bedbugs, they act surprised. This is our third time at the hotel, we stayed in different buildings before but only encountered bedbugs this time. Now we are unsure if we will ever return here after such an incident (we are now worried about bringing them home). The food and the area are excellent, getting better every year. New establishments are opening where we can enjoy our leisure time.

We have stayed in Sere for the third time, always in the Park building. Everything here is satisfactory, despite the specific cuisine (lots of grilled food, monotonous salads), but that's not important. It is very noisy at night (presumably due to the hotel's specifics). However, for the first time, we could hardly sleep at night, just like you, our friends, a couple. Every night, the rooms were filled with the strong smell of gas. We didn't want to sleep with the air conditioner on when the window was closed, and when we opened it, we woke up in the morning with a terrible headache. Several other guests confirmed that the four of us weren't hallucinating, as the unpleasant smell was present in other rooms as well. It wasn't noticeable during the day. The receptionist was surprised when we mentioned it. Overall, this occurrence was an unpleasant surprise that significantly spoiled our vacation. I still recommend the hotel for a visit, but it's necessary to be prepared for any unexpected situations.

Good evening. My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 11 days, from January 18th to January 28th. We arrived early in the morning and had booked a promo room (I don't even know what that means), most likely a room in the Park building. However, since we wanted to stay in the Elegance building, we paid extra and by 9 am we were already in a wonderful room on the 5th floor with a sea view 🙌😍. Overall, our impressions of the hotel are positive. There are, of course, some nuances, but considering the relatively low cost, everything is good. The hotel is beautiful, though its age is noticeable, but they maintain the decor, clean, and make repairs. The room cleaning was good, they changed the bed linen 4 or 5 times during our 11-day stay. The food was of good quality, with plenty of vegetables, fruits, herbs, meat, side dishes, pastries, and fish. There are no themed dinners like fish day or Turkish night, but there were definitely no hungry guests😃. The dining options are organized very conveniently, with the opportunity to eat throughout the day for those who need it. There are also a la carte restaurants without any additional charges and they are very decent. Sushi, desserts, and the main menu are all delicious. The Mongolian restaurant is interesting because you can choose your own raw ingredients and have them cooked, just like in Thailand😃. The beach is nice, but the downside is the stray animals. There are a lot of them, and I personally witnessed a dog urinating on a sunbed mattress, which is not cool, of course. I liked the territory of the hotel, there are many relaxation areas, which is why it feels like there are not many people in the hotel. My favorite activity was the morning yoga accompanied by live meditative music (huge respect to the musician), as well as step, Zumba, and Pilates with the energetic Natalia (special thanks to her for the company at the Halloween party, we danced with her until the last song)😃. By the way, such parties should happen more often! Because daily performances by cover bands got quite boring, despite my love for live performances. It's just a bit dull for a young audience. Overall, the vacation was wonderful. If you have booked a stay at this hotel, go ahead and confidently go. You can go for a second time if the price is very attractive. But otherwise, no. Although I did see tourists who were coming for their seventh or third time. I have a similar relationship with the Alva Donna Exclusive Hotel in Belek, I have been there three times and I am sure I will go again.

We arrived at this hotel after staying at another hotel in the center of Antalya in Kaleici and wanted a relaxing vacation. But it was not the case.... Location: It takes about 3 minutes by taxi from the center of Antalya, costing 2 lire. The hotel is located on the outskirts of the city. There are no attractions near the hotel. There is a small Migros (store), a café in all languages of the world, always half empty, a few benches with beach equipment, and the larger attractions are far away. In general, there is not much to do around the hotel. The hotel is impressive: expensive and luxurious, just like in the tour operator's pictures, but everything is worn out, tired, and with traces of previous guests. Check-in: We arrived at the hotel at the beginning of the second hour of the day, and were checked in immediately. The reception works well. Special thanks to a girl named Maria. We didn't like the standard room on the 1st floor in a 3-story building because the terrace was passable and the bathtub was leaking (they didn't react). Although the room itself was quite big. The next day we were moved to a smaller room on the 2nd floor of the same building. The room was bright, the rooms were small, the furniture was worn out in some places, the terrace was large and enclosed, with a view of the neighboring residential building and the hotel's warehouse. Food: There seems to be plenty of food, but there's no enjoyment in it. For breakfast, there were only bread rolls, all with the same taste, butter sometimes ran out and took a long time to appear, the cheese was mediocre, and the omelet had a long queue, not worth the time to wait. We didn't have a chance to have lunch there. Dinner consisted of fish every day: freshwater trout and tuna once, but it was quickly taken, there were seafood once, meat, turkey, a large amount of raw and cooked vegetables, beautiful and visually diverse desserts, but they all tasted the same. There was enough food, but it was not pronounced, it lacked freshness. Drinks: water was always available. Wine was poured from 1.5-liter bottles, we tried it but didn't risk drinking it, it tasted like a mixture of wine vinegar and sugar. We didn't want to experiment further with our health. There is no dress code in the restaurant. Both for breakfast and dinner, men and women in worn-out beach attire, with rare exceptions, indulged in a "banquet". It is difficult to find a free table in the evening, especially with pleasant neighbors. Smokers, having achieved freedom, smoked right next to the tables, and lazily leaned back on plastic chairs, drinking "wine" from 1.5-liter bottles. Beach: After arriving at the hotel, we rushed to the beach. To our surprise, there was simply no beach there!!! The available space called "beach" is quite narrow, with rocks on one side and a slipway for boats and jet skis on the other. The sand is dirty, full of cigarette butts and sunflower seeds, and the sea is dirty. There are no free sunbeds, all of them are occupied by phantom sunbathers (as mentioned in previous reviews). But that is nothing compared to the children's beach: I have never seen such dirt anywhere. There are pebbles in the water of the children's beach. I'm not against animals, but it is unacceptable to swim with dogs together with children. After seeing all this, we decided to leave the hotel immediately due to the lack of a proper beach. However, the annex did not allow us to do so, so in order to save ourselves the trouble, we decided to take a taxi to another beach after breakfast and return by dinner.

We stayed at this hotel from October 16th to 25th, 222. This was our second attempt to stay at this hotel, as last year it was fully booked and we couldn't get a room. Overall, we were satisfied with our vacation. Now, let's go in order. We flew with Corendon Airlines. The first plus of this airline is the luggage allowance of 2kg and carry-on baggage of 8kg. The second plus is that they offer food and drinks for purchase during the flight. After the reduced comfort of our local airlines, the opportunity to have a cup of coffee on the plane, even for a fee, was very pleasing. Now about the hotel. It was very beautiful, even grandiose, with lots of gold, decor, a palace-style vibe. The sofas were of a bold color - purple! There were an endless number of beautiful mirrors. We stayed in the main building called Elegance. The rooms were cozy, with carpeted floors and comfortable beds. They had everything we needed - a TV, a fridge stocked with drinks, a kettle, bathrobes, slippers, soap, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and a hairdryer. On the balcony, there were chairs, a table, an ashtray, and a hanger for swimsuits. We had a side view of the sea, it was very beautiful. The territory of the hotel was well-maintained, with many paths, corners, gazebos, and sunbathing areas. There was also a meadow with turtles, which were like magnets for children. On the way to the beach, we passed several pools, but we didn't swim in them because the water seemed a bit cold. The sea, on the other hand, was much warmer. There were plenty of sun loungers, but if you go out between 1 and 11 am, you can only find space on the gallery. We arrived in the rain, and the first day was cloudy. We walked around the territory and then went to explore the city. The next morning, we signed up for a soap massage at the Turkish bath. It wasn't cheap, $12 for two people. We mostly sunbathed near the pier and jumped into the sea from there. But for those who love it, there is a sandy beach. However, the water starts getting deep quite close to the shore. In October, the sun was gentle and not scorching. The air temperature was 28-29 degrees Celsius, and the water temperature was 24-25 degrees Celsius. The pool water was significantly cooler. A heated pool would have been nice. The food was amazing. Breakfast was in the main building, lunch had an expanded menu at the main building and a slightly smaller one in the restaurant near the pool, but it was still enough for everyone. Dinner was served in an open-air restaurant. There is no point in listing all the food, as the ultra all-inclusive concept implies abundance, and that's exactly what there was. The drinks were great too. They made delicious cocktails at the lobby bar, brewed Turkish coffee, and the coffee from the coffee machine was also decent, unlike the coffee at breakfast or the beach bar. There is a cafe near the red pool with desserts and drinks. They make different cocktails there, and there is also a champagne bar with decent champagne. The staff were friendly. There were many visitors from Russia, so almost all the staff spoke Russian. There was no difference in service between foreigners and locals. Be sure to visit the jewelry shop in the former casino building. Go there as if visiting a museum. There is more gold there than in our temples. Overall, the hotel left a very decent impression. I overheard conversations of random people, many of whom were returning visitors. It's probably justified. Everything is well thought out, measured, and delicious. One subjective downside for me was the presence of a bathtub instead of a shower in the room. Other than that, we were satisfied. We went to the old town on our own. We bought a transportation card in the adjacent building, where you can also top it up with money. There is a bus stop across from the hotel, and the buses run empty from the final stop. The Terracity shopping center is a 2-minute drive away. All popular brands are represented there. It takes about an hour to get to the old town, and it's pleasant to wander around the streets of Kaleici. There is a tourist bureau in the building next to the hotel. There is also a Migros supermarket across the street and a pharmacy around the corner. In general, all the necessary infrastructure is available. Thank you to the hotel for their hospitality, we are ready to come back again.

We stayed at this hotel from October 1st to October 2nd, 222, the three of us - my husband, myself, and our 4-year-old daughter. We enjoyed our stay! It's not a luxury hotel or a luxury resort, but it is significantly cheaper, which is why it has lower demand. Overall, it is a stable and quality experience, and the value for the price was satisfactory (though I can't compare it to previous years as everything has become more expensive!). The rooms are nice, the service is excellent, the staff is responsive, and the food is good. The cocktails, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, are tasty. It's convenient to have multiple options for accessing the sea, both from the shore and from the pier. The water is cooler on the children's beach compared to the general beach, so we swam in the general area. At first, there was a problem with finding sun loungers (as usual, towels were placed on them to reserve them, but there were no actual tourists occupying them). However, this issue resolved itself by the middle of our stay (probably due to the weather, as there were several non-sunny days). There are many areas on the hotel grounds where one can sit, relax, and socialize. Various chairs, gazebos, and benches are available. We were delighted to see many turtles and cats with kittens! The internet connection is unstable, and by the end of our vacation, it felt like it had completely disappeared. We purchased a local SIM card, so the problem was immediately solved. It was very convenient and affordable. I would like to extend a special thanks to the animators at the Kids Club, Emel and Ceren! Our daughter enjoyed going there immensely and sometimes even asked to be picked up later! They did drawings, crafts, collages, and played both at the club and on the hotel grounds. The time at the club was very fulfilling. There were always gifts, medals, face painting every day, and different themes. The club's hours are 1-12:30 PM and after lunch 2-5:30 PM. This time was more than enough! By the way, there aren't many children at the hotel. It is not a family-oriented hotel, with the majority of guests being adult couples and seniors, and there are very few young people. But for us, this was even a plus - it was relatively calm and quiet, and there were no children's viruses and illnesses (which often happen when there are many children). Our daughter wasn't bored either - she made friends with 5-6 other children, and they spent time together all the time (at the club, in the sea, at dinner they were seated together at a separate table, at the mini disco, and during live music in the evenings). So the hotel is comfortable for both couples and families with children. In terms of dining, we liked it. Of course, it's not homemade cooking, and the borscht is not quite the same, but overall everything is tasty! There were always vegetables (both fried and steamed), beef, lamb every other day, chicken, and fish. There are not many seafood options, but there are shrimp in Olympos for enthusiasts, and the a la carte menu also offers seafood, so those who wish can find it! The desserts and baked goods are good. Overall, our entire family is satisfied with our vacation, and we would have loved to extend it for another week. We didn't get tired even after 1 day! Will we go again? Why not, if there is a good offer in terms of price. If anyone has any questions, please write!

The hotel was great! Thank you, Sera. The transfer from the airport took 15 minutes, and the hotel's location was very convenient. It should be noted that the trip took place at the end of October. On October 22-23, the pier was dismantled and most of the tents were removed, except for one. On October 24, the Olimpos restaurant closed. Beach. The beach was clean, and we were always able to find sun loungers, although they were a bit worn out. The entry into the sea was smooth and convenient, with small pebbles and transparent water. Sometimes there were little fish biting. The water was cool at the end of October, but everyone, including children, still went swimming. It was a bit difficult to enter, but you quickly get used to it. There was a small bay with calm water for children through the arches, which was comfortable for them. Grounds. The grounds were green, clean, and well-maintained. At first glance, it didn't seem very big because of the various hedges and pathways. We liked it - there were plenty of places to take shelter in the shade, and there were many areas for relaxation, such as gazebos, chairs, tables, and a yoga zone. There was also a tennis court and a stage for events. I counted four swimming pools, one of which had seawater. Food. The food was delicious. Grilled white fish was served for lunch and dinner. A couple of times it was too salty, and a couple of times it was red and grilled. There was also cold smoked fish. They served various dishes with chicken, beef, and meatballs. Soup was available all day. Overall, it was as you would expect. The package included free access to three à la carte restaurants: Olimpos, Sushi, and Mongolian. They also had gözleme and ice cream. Room. We stayed in room 257 with a partial sea view. The interior of the room was surprising, like in the TV series "Magnificent Century." The cleaning service came every day, restocked the minibar, and changed the towels. However, the cleaning was superficial. Entertainment. There was a kids' club, and for adults, there were bocce, darts, yoga, Pilates, and a different entertainment program every evening. We enjoyed the concert by Murat Alpsu. For those who wanted to visit the city, there were nearby bus stops. You could plan your route on Google Maps and easily travel to the shopping center. The nearest one was Terra City, just a 2-minute bus ride away. It took about an hour to reach MarkAntalya and the old town of Kaleiçi. You could pay for the bus with a transportation card or an international bank card, but unfortunately, Russian cards were not accepted at the time. By the way, the hotel has an active Instagram page. Take a look! Overall, we enjoyed the hotel and highly recommend it. It's a great value for the money.

I will not tire of writing praises for this hotel! My husband and I have always been the type to think that it's more interesting to stay at different hotels each time, but our opinion changed in 2022. We visited Club Hotel Sera for the third time this year and we want to go again. We arrived in the morning, around 7 am, and we were quickly taken to the hotel, being the first ones. The check-in process was also not long; within 2 minutes and with a glass of champagne, Maria, a wonderful receptionist, gave us our cards. For the third year in a row, Maria has been greeting us in the mornings, and we are very grateful to her for her attentiveness and competence in her work. She always takes our preferences into account and tries to please us! This time we stayed in the Park building, and before that in the Club and Elegance. I can say that each building is interesting in its own way and we liked them all. The Park building is the quietest, as it is the farthest from all the general hustle and bustle. In 2022, Sera was as wonderful as ever. The service, quality of food and drinks, room cleaning - there is absolutely nothing to complain about. Even the Wi-Fi became free and works everywhere, although with varying success for now, but it's not a problem for us. All the bars were also open, including a new bar with cocktails and champagne, with a huge selection for every taste. Every evening there were performances and discos, which we didn't attend, but we heard a lot of good reviews. On October 12th, there was a big Oktoberfest celebration; dinner was moved closer to the sea, tables were set up, a stage was set, and everyone prepared and tried their best - and it was impossible not to notice! There was plenty of food and desserts, all delicious and fresh. Another reason we love Sera is its location - it's right on the beach and you can easily go to the city for a walk or shopping. We will definitely come again because there is something special in this hotel that makes us want to return and feel cozy, just like at home! Thank you very much to the staff for their good work!

Good time of day to everyone! We stayed at Sere from January 9th to January 19th, 2022. So much has been written about the hotel's interior and grounds that it probably doesn't make sense to repeat it. It's beautiful, well-maintained, with magnificent plants, as they say, made with love! The only thing that spoiled it was the room we were assigned, or rather, the view from the balcony... I am attaching a photo. Park Building, Room #738. I love to sit on the balcony after the beach, dream, and have a glass of champagne) Unfortunately, it didn't happen... When buying a tour, choose club or elegant rooms. We took Roh and it was a mistake. But every cloud has a silver lining - we had Wi-Fi in our room!) The hotel is only 1% occupied, there are a lot of people, the majority being 60+. I don't know if it's the time of year or if older people usually vacation here. It's better for young people to go in a group. The food is tasty, there is plenty of everything except seafood. But every day it's basically the same. Delicious pastries and desserts. I didn't like the beach lunch at all. Fast food accompanied by flies, cats, and dogs. The drinks are good quality and worthy. No headaches))) The staff is friendly, polite, and quick. No complaints. The beach is probably the only place where they don't clean up well. And I understand that cleanliness depends on people not littering, and there are many questions for smokers who throw cigarette butts in the sand instead of the bins that are available everywhere, but still.... We had to claim vacant spots at 7 in the morning. The sea is magnificent! After noon, there are waves, but it's October... The weather disappointed us this year, there were several rainy and stormy days. The entertainment is standard during the day: bocce, darts, aerobics. Every evening and sometimes during the day, there is live music, which we really liked. Under the music, there are lively dances in the evening)! One evening there was a fire show, but all those Miss and Mister contests were not held. In conclusion, I would say that we chose this hotel because of its proximity to the airport and the opportunity for quality shopping. We went shopping by taxi. It cost 85 lira to Terra City and 18 lira to eepo. In general, we were satisfied with our vacation! Would we go to this hotel again? Probably not on purpose, but if there is a good price and with our own group of friends - it's possible! Thank you for your attention! Have a great vacation and a wonderful mood to everyone!

Why are my reviews disappearing? Question to the moderators. For the third time, I will repeat myself - my wife and I are in complete awe of all this amazing beauty, luxury, well-groomed territory, and excellent service. Everywhere is clean, wonderful location of bars, cafes, restaurants, well-designed territory, clean toilets, everything is very convenient. Special thanks to the staff, restaurant chefs, and head chef for excellent, quality food, as well as the cafe and bar staff, bartenders, and especially the beauties from the lobby bar. Huge thanks to everyone, you made our vacation unforgettable! We will definitely come back!!!

SERA loves you. And it's not just a figure of speech. It's the whole working style of this beautiful hotel. Wherever you find yourself, it's very noticeable. In the room, in the restaurant, in the lobby, on the premises - everywhere. Expensive. Luxurious. Very worthy. A lot of good and interesting things have been written about this hotel. I don't want to repeat them. But it's important to note the following: the hotel's rectangular-shaped premises are so well planned that there are many nooks and corners, relaxation areas, sunbathing areas, swimming areas, benches, sofas, armchairs, tables, all surrounded by beautiful plants and antique sculptures. I have something to compare it with. We have been to more expensive hotels with larger premises, but there is practically nowhere to find a cozy spot and sit in silence. The food is excellent. I was pleasantly surprised by the availability of dietary dishes and children's food. Every morning there are two porridges: oatmeal with milk and semolina with milk. On the second to last day of our stay, I discovered deliciously cooked pork, even though the sign said "turkey". There is a wide variety of meat - beef, veal, lamb, poultry. I won't write about the food, I'll just say: everything is abundant, even in excess. About the service. Daily room cleaning, daily replacement of toiletries. Even without leaving tips. But we almost always left them. Bed linen is changed frequently, and towels are provided daily. (Why??) Impeccable cleanliness throughout the premises, always visible staff members who wash, clean, sweep, collect garbage, and so on. The staff is friendly and responsive. They always addressed us in Russian. There is no overcrowding in the restaurants, and the tables are cleared promptly. If the waiters couldn't keep up, their manager would step in. And even then, nothing went wrong. I have seen on multiple occasions an elderly, respectable man from the management team moving chairs and armchairs in the lobby. And even then, nothing went wrong. Entertainment. Activities. From morning until night. For children and adults. Live music in the evenings of the highest quality. Vocalists, violinists, instrumental music. Sports and active entertainment. However, the children's mini disco was disappointing. There is a Russian girl named Irina at Guest Relations. There are no Russian TV channels at all, only "Euronews" in Russian, but of very poor quality. The internet is very weak, practically nonexistent in the rooms and on the premises, with occasional access in the lobby. The airplanes, of course, were very disruptive at night. But that's not the hotel's fault, of course. Consistent Spanish shame. But that's a general issue, not just specific to this hotel or Turkish hotels. This is our second time staying at this hotel, after January 2019. I recognized some hotel staff members from that year. We stayed in the main Elegant building, room 161. Will we come here again? If it's Antalya, then yes, Sera. A huge thank you to the hotelier and the entire team. Our stay at your hotel was remarkable.

We rested from October 8th to 15th, two adults and a 14-year-old teenager. The hotel is interesting and overall we liked it. This is our 12th trip to Turkey and our 22nd trip abroad, so we have something to compare it with. I made the reservation 6 weeks before the flight, and only Elegance rooms in the main building were available. It took us 15 minutes to get to the hotel and only 4 minutes to get back because we stopped at a candy store. We arrived at the hotel at 8:30 am, but our room was only available after lunch at 1:30 pm. We didn't mind and changed our clothes to go to the beach. Room 156 suited us perfectly, the windows faced the side where the waterfall was, so the sound of airplanes didn't bother us much, although the call to prayer at 6 am was a bit annoying. Bathrobes and slippers were provided in the room. We bring our own toiletries. The main building has 13 floors, the first 3 being non-residential, so our room was technically on the 5th floor, but it was actually the 8th floor. The hotel grounds are very small for us. I prefer huge hotels where I can walk around the entire area. In this hotel, there was nowhere to walk, as the territory was mostly occupied by bars and restaurants. My daughter said it felt more like a maze than a hotel, but we got used to it after a couple of days. The dogs and cats on the beach didn't bother us at all, and I never saw them defecating on the beach. I also didn't notice any "tiredness" of the hotel, the only thing that seemed really old was the pier and the decking on the beach. Breakfast could be enjoyed at the snack bar on the beach, which was a first for me. It's not as relevant in the autumn when it's cool in the morning, but it must be great in the summer. We often had lunch there too, as it seemed tastier than the main building. For example, they had red fish there, which was not available in the main building. Having dinner outdoors when it's warm is great and beautiful. We also went to the Mongolian á la carte restaurant. There, you need to fill a bowl with what you like - noodles, vegetables, mushrooms, turkey, beef, shrimp, spices - and they fry it all in sauce. So, there is only one dish in the restaurant, and you can also have dessert, fruit, and drinks. We liked it and it was delicious, but it didn't feel like a restaurant, more like a street eatery. We also went to the Olympus restaurant for dinner, which doesn't require reservations and operates from 4 pm to 10 pm. That was more like a restaurant, but the selection of dishes was very small. I ordered pasta with seafood, but had to use a magnifying glass to find the seafood in the dish. In general, it was okay for variety, but I don't understand people who go there every day. Three times was more than enough for us. I was very worried about the weather because I knew it was unpredictable in October. This was our fourth time in Turkey in October, and the weather has always been different. This time it wasn't hot, with temperatures around 25-27 degrees Celsius in the shade during the day. The sea water was cold, around 22.5 degrees near the hotel, as measured by a thermometer. It was one degree warmer at the public beach on the left, where we went to swim. The water in the pools was even colder, around 2 degrees. We swam in the sea from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm. Then we went to the spa. After 1 pm, there would be a cold wind and the waves would start. By the way, we really liked the spa in the hotel. It had three saunas - dry, wet, and a hamam, as well as a jacuzzi. It's a shame that the indoor pool only operates from November to April. We would have loved to swim there. We didn't notice any shabbiness in the spa. It's strange that the spa closes at 7 pm. I think it would make more sense for it to be open until 10 pm, especially during the colder months. We happened to be there for the Oktoberfest on October 12th. We don't drink beer, but it was interesting to see. We especially enjoyed the live music, and there was a beautiful girl playing the violin. I recommend visiting Sandland, a park of sand sculptures. It's only a 1-minute walk from the hotel. The entrance fee is $8 or 15 lira per adult. It's a nice way to diversify your vacation. Now, I want to highlight what we didn't like. Specifically, the lunches in the main restaurant. It was not tasty for me. Even the snack bar had better food. There were a lot of people, and beach spots were taken from 7 am, even in October. By 8 am, the entire first row was occupied, and it's very important for me to be on the first row. We also had to search for a table in the main restaurant and snack bar. The sea was cold, which I think is due to the waterfall and underwater currents. So, if you like warm sea water, I recommend vacationing only in summer. The hotel's grounds are small, and there's nothing that can be done about it. It would have been great if the indoor pool was open in May and October - it's needed during these months. The internet worked well only in the lobby. Throughout the rest of the area and in the rooms, it barely worked. WhatsApp would connect, but images wouldn't load. Everything else was good. I wouldn't mind coming back. The hotel is unusual and interesting, despite the drawbacks.

We stayed at the hotel from October 3rd to October 13th, 222. We arrived at 1 am and checked in at 1 pm. We had room 153 on the 5th floor of the Elegance building with a wonderful view of the sea and surroundings. I highly recommend the main Elegance building if possible, as I think it is better. I won't list all the hotel's advantages that have already been written about; I will write about my own impressions. Everything I wanted from a vacation and a hotel, I got here. The hotel itself, the food, the grounds, especially the evening performances, were all enjoyable. Artists perform live at the evening shows. You can simply listen, or you can dance as well. Some sing better, some not so much, but overall, it's better than the usual (Ms. Hotel or Bingo as in other hotels). Vacationers really enjoy dancing, especially when some songs are in Russian. If you want to dance in the evenings, this is the place for you. I was surprised by the number of bars (one with champagne, one with alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails, in the lobby, where they dance) where you can find the drink you want. One unpleasant detail for me was the beach. Overall, it's fine, but the area is small for the number of vacationers, and the beach chairs are placed close to each other, sometimes not enough for everyone. Half of the chairs are under a canopy and the other half under small umbrellas, which is not convenient. Yes, there are dogs on the beach, they don't bark, but they create discomfort. There is no sand there, just small seashells, but it didn't bother us much. I won't lower the rating for the beach because the hotel did what it could, and all the other advantages outweigh this beach drawback. The staff is very good. Polite, smiling, hospitable from the receptionist to the waiters. Everywhere is clean; they make an effort to clean and tidy up. I haven't seen dirty dishes in the restaurant. Everything shines, and they take it out of the dishwashers hot. Even the bars have dishwashers. Almost all the staff understand Russian; they may not be able to hold a conversation, but they will understand and respond to what you want. The main group of vacationers are Russians. I recommend the hotel, and if possible, I will go there again. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask. I will try to answer. Have a great vacation, everyone.

I can't understand the people who go to this hotel more than once. I've been vacationing in Turkey about 11 times, but this hotel is at the bottom of my personal rating. If I had to sum it up in one word, it would be a mid-level hotel with a good location. The airport transfer took only 15 minutes, which is definitely a plus. There are also shopping opportunities nearby, just a 2-minute ride on the city bus and you're at Terracity (a nice mall). The room cleaning service is terrible, tips don't help. We stayed in the Elegance building, the rooms were worn out and in need of repair, and there were insects in the room that bit and caused allergies. During our 11-day stay, the curtain on one side of the window fell down and no one bothered to put it back up. The baseboard in the bathroom was also detached and left lying there. There were no cotton swabs, cotton pads, or even a toothbrush in the room. These small items were only provided on the 8th day after we requested them. I'm shocked, I've never encountered anything like this in Turkish hotels before. The bed linen was only changed when we asked. Clearly, there is a shortage of staff as no one approaches you to offer drinks during lunch or dinner. The food is monotonous and tasteless, you won't go hungry but you won't enjoy it either. There are no special days dedicated to seafood, Turkish cuisine, or Turkish evenings. The head chef never made an appearance or greeted the guests. However, the staff at the lobby bar and beach bar are very friendly and positive. We greatly appreciate their efforts. It's frightening to walk on the pier and even more so to descend the stairs into the sea. Can't the management see this? After all, there are so many guests who are vacationing here or will be coming. The sea is beautiful and warm, which is why we came, but we don't just pay our money for the sea. Perhaps the hotel was different a year ago, but the current impression is definitely not positive.

We spent a long time choosing a hotel due to the complicated situation in the Lara Beach area, but we made a slight mistake with the location. It turned out that the hotel is located in the city, away from the main group of premium hotels in Lara, across the city beach/promenade of Antalya. This is why it has all its disadvantages: a small sandy-pebble beach with no space even for a volleyball court, occasionally stray dogs come from the city, during holidays the municipal beach is overcrowded 24/7, which leads to garbage and dirt washing up. The hotel has been built quite a long time ago, previously it housed a casino, so the interiors are decorated very ostentatiously, mostly with gold leaf. The rooms were decent, with a double and a queen-sized bed. Housekeeping was done daily without any quality issues. Some minor repairs are needed. The entrance to the sea is subjective, we didn't like the access from the stone pier. There were not enough sunbeds on the sandy beach, while sunbeds were available on the stone pier, but it was unbearably hot during the day. The daytime animation was scarce, but the evening shows were excellent. There are three à la carte restaurants, and we particularly enjoyed the Japanese one. All bars are closer to the main building, the quality of the drinks is decent, there is a separate champagne bar which I highly recommend. There are no issues with the food, it is all of good quality. The bowling alley was not working. We went to the center of Antalya twice by taxi for shopping and to walk around the historical sites, prices there are twice as low as ours. There was a beautiful waterfall near us, which we could see from our room. It is unpleasant that the hotel is located under the flight path, but it didn't bother us much. There is a colony of turtles living on the territory, they come out of the bushes to search for food and walk around the restaurant area in the evening. The check-in process was fast, but we were only given the room after 2 PM. For those who need a pharmacy, it is located to the left of the hotel, inside a shoe store, but beware that the working hours are not always followed. In general, the hotel is good, but the problems with the beach spoiled our impression. The amount of money they are asking for it this year is simply unrealistic.

We stayed at the hotel from April 15th to 22nd, 223. We flew from Kazan with the Intourist tour operator on Turkish Airlines. We were provided with sandwiches and tea twice during the flight. The hotel was conveniently located near the airport, so we were quickly transported there. We were immediately checked into a room on the 6th floor with a view of the waterfall and the sea. We enjoyed the beautiful view every day. There is a currency exchange near the hotel where we could even exchange rubles for lira. They also sell bus passes there. We explored the old city, visited the waterfall, and went to the shopping center on our own. The lobby bar serves cocktails, and there is no need to wait in line as the waitstaff brings them to you. Then we went to have breakfast. The restaurant was spacious. Breakfast was buffet-style with eggs, omelettes, sausage, and vegetables. The porridge was very runny. The waitstaff provided good service and brought tea and coffee. For lunch and dinner, there was soup, vegetables, and a variety of meats such as chicken, lamb, beef, and turkey. There was plenty of food. The hotel grounds were very beautiful and extensive, with flowers everywhere. The beach was divided into sections, and you could relax in peace. There were many sunbeds available, and there was a shower. You could pick up towels on your way to the beach, which was very convenient so we didn't have to bring them along. The beach bar was open and they baked flatbread. The restaurant also operated during the season. There was a hammam, sauna, and indoor pool on the lower level, but the water in the pool was cool. The Wi-Fi worked throughout the hotel grounds, even on the beach. The water park and various bars on the premises were closed because it was not the season. Overall, the hotel left a pleasant impression. We would like to return. The air temperature was +23-26 degrees Celsius, and we sunbathed and swam.

The reviewer didn't provide a detailed description of their stay at the hotel. I would like to share my impressions of my stay at the hotel in more detail.

Hello! I would like to share a review about the Sera Club Hotel 5* Antalya. 1. Check-in: The journey from the airport to the hotel takes approximately 1-15 minutes. Our flight arrived early, and we arrived at the hotel at 7 am. Since it was still the warm season, there were many guests in the hotel, and our room was only provided to us at 11 am. We spent the waiting time walking by the sea, exploring the hotel grounds, and sunbathing on rocking chairs. 2. Rooms: The hotel consists of three buildings: Elegance, Club, and Park. We stayed in the "Club" building. The Club rooms are also known as the "malachite box" because they are all decorated in Ottoman style, with diamond-shaped layouts, in green tones, and with mirrors all around. The only downside of these rooms is their small size and balcony. The main building has larger rooms. Another downside of our room was the presence of mosquitoes. The minibar is replenished upon request and includes cola, fanta, juice, and water. 3. Internet: There is internet in the rooms, but the signal is weak. I believe it depends on the distance of the rooms from the router and the phone's capabilities. iPhones had good reception, while Androids had intermittent reception. Sometimes, internet connection was even available at the beach. 4. Sea and Beach: At the end of October, the sea was still comfortable, and the body quickly adapted. Cold currents are occasionally present (possibly due to the proximity of mountains), but a few meters away, the water is warm again. The air temperature in the second half of October was around 27-29 degrees Celsius. The beach has sandy areas with small pebbles and shells. The beach area is large and there are plenty of sunbeds for sunbathing. I'm not sure about the summer season, but in October, there were enough sunbeds, and many of them were unoccupied. 5. Dining: There are many restaurants in the hotel, but we didn't experience all of them as some were already closed for the winter. In October, breakfast and lunch were served in the main building's restaurant and on the beach. The variety of dishes in the two restaurants is not significantly different. Dinner was served in the outdoor restaurant. The assortment of dishes was similar to lunch: rice, potatoes, stewed vegetables, turkey, chicken, fish, meat, salads, desserts, and fruits (melon, mandarins, pears, plums, grapes, apples). There was something for every taste with many variations. (p.s. The dishes were clean, without greasy streaks, which was pleasing). There is also a separate coffee shop. 6. Alcohol: There are many bars in the hotel. In October, at least 7 of them were open, but there might be more. There is also a variety of drinks available. Apart from standard drinks like beer, gin, and whiskey, they make many different delicious cocktails, decent tequila, a decent liqueur similar to Baileys, dry champagne, mulled wine, etc. Wine is served during lunch and dinner, but it's not chilled. The bartenders are attentive. 7. À la carte Restaurants: We only experienced two: the Japanese Sushi and the Mongolian. There were also Meksika and Olimpus, but they were already closed for the winter. In Sushi, they serve salads, rolls, noodles with seafood, and desserts. In the Mongolian, you need to pick raw vegetables and/or seafood for stir-frying, and then they cook it in front of you. They also serve sweets and, I think, fruits. We were not impressed with them, but as they say, taste is subjective. 8. Entertainment: The animators, to be honest, were not very active. If you don't accidentally stumble upon them, you won't know where and what events are taking place. Perhaps it was the end of the season, and they were tired. We didn't come across any Russian-speaking animators. It was only after a week that we discovered there was aqua aerobics in the freezing pool in the morning, darts and bocce (rolling balls on the sand) after lunch, and a shooting competition with ball targets using an outdated rifle (but once you get into it, there is a thrill to beat other participants; I managed to win and "earn a medal"). 9. There is a small library in the lobby with books and magazines in different languages, including Russian. You can borrow a book or magazine to read.

First time I vacationed in Turkey in the autumn, the weather was fantastic, the sea was warm, now I understand why this time is called the "velvet" season. The first impression of the hotel was "expensive and luxurious". Everything is in "gold", "crystal", carpets - something similar can be found in an Armenian restaurant in our city. You quickly get used to it and even start to like this "magnificent era"!!! The room in the main building, Elegance: good cleaning, after which it is checked by a manager (or head of housekeeping, I don't know the exact position) for quality. The bar is replenished every day for free (juice, soda, cola or sprite, can't remember exactly), I don't think it's necessary as the bars have quality drinks and juices, but it's a service. Robes (fitting a size 52, you can even button them up), slippers. The hotel grounds are beautiful, green, with many picturesque spots, the landscape designers have done a great job. You step out of the hotel and feel like you're in a cozy little town, walking along small streets with shops and bars, cafes, and you reach the sea. If you go left, you'll reach a sandy beach (coarse sand, no sharp stones, you sink into it, not stable), with a gentle depth. If you go right, there's a beach for little children, further is a pier and a pool with sea water, and right near it is an amphitheater, further is a tennis court. On the way, there's a large restaurant on the street, buffet in the evening, two pools, a beachside restaurant (breakfast and lunch are extra, in addition to the main restaurant), à la carte restaurants (dinners by appointment), and bars with drinks. The restaurant offers dishes to suit all tastes, for dinner we had salmon and lamb, both perfectly cooked: not overcooked fish, tender meat. Alcohol and cocktails are of good quality, coffee (coffee machine with whole beans). In the evenings, there are shows, but we often preferred to sit in the lobby, which is huge, slowly sipping drinks and chatting, accompanied by unobtrusive live music. The hotel is located near the airport, which is a plus (quick transfer to vacation), and a minus (you can hear the sound, but you quickly get used to it). It is very close to the city, with a bus stop nearby (didn't use it) and taxis (fixed price: airport for 1 dollar, Terracity for 8 dollars as an example). I enjoyed my vacation, I'm coming back in July!!! Thank you to the staff for their positivity and great mood during my vacation!!!

It was hard to believe, but it was exactly like that)) Starting from the luxurious palace and elegance of the hotel's interior and all its buildings, rooms, and spaces, to the rich territory in every sense) You can easily spend the whole day in the hotel and on the premises without getting bored - there is aqua aerobics, yoga, dancing, and many other activities))) There is also a disco in the evenings. The pool has sea water and icy waterfalls. The vast territory has different beaches - there's a pier, pebble beaches, and sandy beaches. There are even flat stones almost in the water. You can swim without limitations, whether you go left or right along the shore for several kilometers. There is a promenade for walking and Nordic walking along the beach. Dudenski (lower) waterfalls are nearby, a 15-minute walk. The bus stop is just across the road from the hotel, so you can go to the market or explore the Old Town and its ruins. And it's peaceful there!)) At night and late in the evening. There are no hotels nearby with loud music. The rooms in the main building are huge. There are just a few minor inconveniences - they don't provide a tea and coffee set, so bring your own. If you need a kettle, ask and they will bring one. If anyone needs a TV with Russian channels, we had a rather amusing miscommunication with guest relations. Later on, either the Russian channels were fixed on their own or the technician came while we were not in the room. The hotel is huge, with a lot of people and a large staff. There are nice people and some unpleasant characters. Half of the rooms in the main building have windows facing the road and a side view of the sea. The other half have a luxurious direct view of the sea. The bus noise can be heard from the road, and dogs bark towards the sea. Occasionally, airplanes fly quite loudly, but sometimes they change corridors and you can't hear them. The airport is a 15-minute taxi ride away, and we paid 15 dollars. For local bus trips, we bought a prepaid card and loaded it with lira. It costs 8 lira per person for a one-way trip. Prices may vary. The Turks in the city gladly accepted rubles as payment and converted them to lira at the Central Bank rate. It was quite beneficial. On the hotel grounds, there is an amazingly luxurious jewelry shop. However, the prices for gold are even higher than ours. So, it's just for browsing. Moreover, it's not the gold itself, but the shop inside) In general, it was pure delight and a sea of positive impressions) And, of course, we will come again) And we recommend it to our friends and acquaintances)

Whoever fell in love with the Sera hotel, it's forever! This year they made extra efforts to entertain guests. The hotel is beautifully decorated, and there were many pleasant surprises and gifts. Wonderful fun parties, concerts, and familiar artists. An excellent New Year's Eve, which unexpectedly turned into a foam party on the street. New Year's only happens here. Everything is well thought out, both kids and adults are satisfied. The food is amazing, and the service is excellent. The weather is fantastic, everyone was sunbathing, and you could swim in the sea. The sauna, pool, everything was in working order. Time was spent wonderfully!

We arrived and were at the hotel in 2 minutes. We were immediately placed in the main building on the 7th floor in room 172 with a beautiful view from the balcony (the sea, mountains, and waterfall). We had booked a room in the club building but it was closed at that time, luckily or unluckily? The food was excellent, with seafood every day, turkey, lamb, and beef. In the morning, they made omelets and there were porridges and yogurts available. We went to the à la carte restaurant by reservation through guest relations. By the way, there was a very pleasant and responsive girl named Irina, and one more unfortunately I didn't ask her name. They provided a stroller upon request, and there was already a crib in the room. They gave us complimentary fruits, a bag, 2 t-shirts, and hot plate holders with the hotel and Antalya symbols. There is children's entertainment and it is good, there is a children's room where wonderful animators work. Every day there are different activities and gifts for the children. The sea is cold, but many people, even children, swim in it. The pool water is of a comfortable temperature, 26-27 degrees Celsius. The Turkish bath, sauna, and steam room are operational. Spa and massages are available for a fee. There is a decent gym as well. The room was cleaned daily, the staff were polite and helpful. The bartenders and waiters work conscientiously, but if you tip them, the quality improves significantly. On Christmas, they threw an amazing Merry Christmas party with a festive dinner and artists. Afterwards, there was a party where the children's animation team was working, Santa Claus was present, and there were beautiful dancers. There were many different drinks and treats. In the morning, we found a little bag with a Christmas gift from the hotel on our door. It was very pleasant.

We visited Sera with my friends. It was my second time here and many things have changed for the better, but there is also something not so great to tell about... It's November. We came here to go shopping and didn't expect to swim in the sea. You get used to it and swim non-stop. The fish near the shore bother us, they bite our feet. The restaurant has deteriorated, there is not much tasty food anymore. There were no seafood at all. All breakfasts were egg-based. Baked goods, fruits, vegetables, herbs, and cheese were all good. Thanks to the chefs, they cook great. Everything that is available is edible. The service of the waiters in the restaurant is awful. You can't get wine, juice, or water quickly. They are always running somewhere, but can't clean the tables. The animators didn't see us, they didn't invite us anywhere, and we didn't really want to go. There is a leather shop near the hotel. They offered to take us to their Agora base. They promised to take us to Depo as well, but since we didn't buy anything, they decided to trick us. We left by taxi, had a great time, and bought what we needed at Depo. And this gang, Shura and Rashid, are talkative and dishonest. If they told the truth, there wouldn't be any problems. The guys at the lobby bar are excellent waiters. With or without tips, everything is great. I felt that the wine wasn't that good, but champagne needs to be tasted first. Don't drink some straw-like thing. We had lunch at the beach restaurant, everything was great there and the staff is trying. The girls at the reception helped us solve everything. For some reason, they tortured cockroaches on our floor right in front of us. They come out of the rooms wearing masks, and we are living here. Strange and incomprehensible. Unfortunately, there were no explanations; they offered us another room. We didn't want to move, hoping that everything was fine. But the sea continued for the following days. Everything is fine, there's a great music selection at the hotel. Thanks a lot to the guest relations team. The guide is not pushy. Overall, everything is great. If you don't notice the weak animation and the inadequate actions (referring to the cockroaches). The pools are all freezing, even in the spa. They promised us that it would all be ready in November. But we've been waiting for the promised things for 3 years. The weather was great, 25 degrees during the day and 16 in the evening. There was no precipitation, so it felt like summer in early August for us. Thanks to those who made an effort for us. We probably won't come back.

We rested from May 24th to May 31st. We arrived early in the morning at 7 o'clock and were checked in at 9 o'clock. The territory is always clean and tidy. The cleaning staff is friendly and polite. The mini bar was restocked with Fanta, cola, mineral water, and bathroom amenities, and the towels were changed every day. The food is very diverse. Lamb shish kebab, turkey, chicken, grilled beef, fried mussels, breaded calamari. Porridge, pureed soups, borscht. Many fresh vegetables and herbs. Fruits include apples, apricots, watermelon, and pears. Desserts include tiramisu, eclairs, chocolate and fruit cakes. Entertainment includes water aerobics, darts, yoga, performances by singers and DJs, and discos from 9:30 PM to 11:00 PM. The beach was equipped with a new pier, and there were enough sunbeds and mattresses for everyone by the sea. If you want to sunbathe by the pool near the snack bar, wake up early and reserve your spots. The hotel staff is friendly and smiley. We would like to express our gratitude to the tourist manager, Jasmine. Overall, we really liked the hotel. We had a great time and thank you for the wonderful stay in a luxurious hotel!

Well, dear reader, I hope my review of Club Sera will be helpful to you, as I had the opportunity to visit it for the second time in 222. Let's start with the positives: 1. Wonderful and responsive staff, always ready to help, just like Chip and Dale. I especially want to highlight Maria, who always promptly resolved any issues. 2. Oh my, the view from the window of the sea and waterfalls on the 9th floor was breathtaking. On the last day of my stay, I wanted to break my leg or arm, after fainting at the reception, just so I wouldn't have to leave. However, I lacked the courage for such an act, so I timidly left with the transfer at the scheduled time. 3. The lawn on the premises would make the English Queen (RIP) envious. It makes you want to lie down, spreading your limbs in different directions. However, I didn't dare to do that because of the abundance of wildlife on the premises. Wildlife includes not only cats but also turtles, which occasionally start mating right in front of tourists. 4. There is internet throughout the hotel. The speed might not be enough for streaming on TikTok, but it's sufficient for checking flight times and uploading photos to Instagram. 5. The hotel is located right in the city, about 15 minutes from the airport. Supermarkets, pharmacies, ATMs, and bus stops are all nearby. Now, let's talk about the downsides, as even the sun has its spots: 1) Writing anything negative about the food nowadays is dangerous, as people in the comments start asking if you go on vacation to eat. Despite the seemingly abundant variety of dishes, by the fifth day, you realize that it was just an illusion. And, oh my, the OIL. All the grains and meat are made with a considerable amount of oil that leaves a film on your lips. 2) Room cleaning. Occasionally, you could use your finger to draw hearts on the table's surface, and there were still hairs in the corners of the room even after cleaning, and it's not guaranteed that they were yours. 3) Alcohol. Either the years have caught up with me, or its quality has decreased, because after a few cosmopolitans, I felt like I had been kicked all over my body the next morning. To be continued next year.

I recommend the hotel. It is conveniently located near the airport. We were mainly accommodated in the main building, although we didn't expect that. Thank you to the reception staff for providing us with this opportunity! We stayed on the first floor and the elevators worked well and quickly. The rooms have good soundproofing. The food is diverse and caters to all tastes. I didn't particularly like the preparation of some dishes, but they say tastes differ, so overall it was still excellent. The rooms were cleaned and towels were changed daily. The cleaning was satisfactory. The hotel grounds are huge, beautiful, and well-maintained. The beach is small, and we sunbathed and swam near the pier. There was enough space for everyone. The sea is fantastic. There are a lot of bars with delicious cocktails, ice cream, flatbreads, and pastries. The atmosphere in the hotel is very pleasant and friendly. Thanks to the entire staff for a great time. I also recommend the hotel for families with young children.

Rested with my husband in July 222. Tour operator - Sunmar, 14 nights. Check-in. Since we were the only ones at this hotel, we had an individual transfer. We arrived quickly, within 1-15 minutes. By 1:30, we were already at the hotel, filled out forms, received bracelets, keys, and cards for towels, and started waiting for our check-in. Initially, we were supposed to check in at 14:00, but about 3 minutes after our arrival, I clarified once again if the room was ready, and miraculously, it was already ready. So we checked in quite quickly, already at 11:00. The clientèle consisted of Russians, Kazakhs, Turks, and Germans. Room. Our room was in the farthest building - Park. The room was on the 6th floor, with a balcony, slightly "tired," but livable. The windows overlook the neighboring houses, overall, if you don't count the planes, it's quiet. In the room: a bed, bedside tables, a TV (many channels, two or three of them in Russian), two armchairs, many mirrors, a writing desk, clothing wardrobes, a safe (free), a refrigerator with a mini-bar. They did a good job with housekeeping, daily. There was also a problem with the air conditioning, which has been mentioned in other reviews - at night, there is a restriction on a certain temperature and it does not cool down more (what nonsense, especially in the summer?). The first night we woke up at 5 in the morning from unbearable heat. We found a solution: since they give 2 keys to the room, we left one so that the air conditioner would cool the room all day, and when we returned in the evening, it was already cool enough in the room, so we didn't need the air conditioner at night. Territory. With my topographical idiocy, I couldn't get used to it in the first few days, as the territory is really large. Three pools (one with seawater), bars, restaurants, amphitheater, tennis court, lawn with turtles (we counted 19 of them, but there were more) and so on. The territory is green, well-groomed, with many "instagrammable" spots for photography. The location of the hotel is good in that there is a Migros grocery store opposite and a bus stop. Food. Enough has already been written about this, so I won't repeat it. We never stayed hungry. Food is available from 7 am to 1 am (especially recommend the late-night soups). Sea. It was always possible to find a free sunbed. The beach has sand + small pebbles, the sea is not quite warm, initially it was uncomfortable to swim. Entertainment. Non-intrusive, which is more of a plus than a minus. During the day, there are standard activities - darts, water polo, fitness, etc. In the evening, there are events that repeat every day (vintage party, "Game of Thrones" party...), the rest were new to us during our two-week stay. Excursions. Our tour operator (fortunately for us) forgot about us and did not schedule a meeting for excursions. After 5 days of vacation, I approached the representative myself (they are always in the hotel during the day) to register us (what if we didn't fly back))) They didn't impose excursions, which is commendable. We bought a bus card ourselves and went several times to a large shopping center (Lara) and to the waterfall. Special thanks to the guest relations staff who answered all our questions and requests. Overall, despite some hotel drawbacks, we enjoyed our vacation. We had a great rest, stocked up on a sea of positive emotions and vitamins. So I recommend this hotel for your unforgettable vacation!

We stayed at the Sera hotel from November 1st to 6th, 222. We were lucky to combine the beginning of my dad's vacation with the end of my daughter's school break. We arrived mentally and physically exhausted. All these events and the flow of negative information took a toll on us, especially since our child started first grade. We were tired. The hotel is wonderful. We were accommodated in a large building with a luxurious view of the sea and Duden Park with its waterfall. The view is breathtaking. They checked us in an hour after our arrival, even though we arrived early in the morning, around 7 o'clock. We didn't expect such an early check-in because according to the hotel rules, check-in is at 2 pm and check-out is at 12 pm. The lobby is impressively decorated in Eastern luxury, with beautiful (though slightly "tired") furniture, an amazing relief ceiling, luxurious chandeliers, and lighting along the top of the walls that changes from blue during the day to purple in the evening. The staircase is magnificent. In short, it's Eastern beauty. Our room was on the 6th floor. The corridor and the space in front of the elevator were adorned with carved golden furniture, mirrors in gold frames, chairs, sofas, vases, and more. The room was clean and neat, not new but it didn't really matter. There was a safe, complimentary water and juices in the minibar, and slippers and robes. The view from the balcony was stunning! In previous reviews, people wrote that they had to cover the air conditioner with blankets, but in reality, it can be controlled and even turned off. Some guests took taxis to other beaches, but we didn't have such problems. We were there in November, maybe that's why the beach was almost empty, very clean, and the changing cabins were also available, although they weren't far from our room if we wanted to change clothes. The hotel has several pools, I lost count, plus one indoor pool. And the beach. Moreover, if you don't like the hotel's beach, you can go to the right and find a public beach, or go to the left and find a series of private great beaches (the municipal area between them is free). In the summer, there are much fewer people there than on the public one (we lived nearby and rented an apartment there). Coming back to the hotel: the breakfasts, lunches, and dinners were plentiful (even out of season in November) with lots of cheese, bread rolls, eggs in different styles, olives, fruits, vegetables, meat, chicken, red and white fish, tuna, seafood, and desserts. Coffee, tea, water, and more were also available. During lunch and dinner, live music is periodically played in the restaurant (

Real review from travelers who have something to compare with their stay at Club Hotel Sera. We have traveled extensively around Europe, including seaside resorts, and have been to Turkey many times. We can confidently recommend this hotel. During our stay, I noted the advantages and disadvantages of staying at this hotel. Let's start with the pros: - Large green hotel grounds - One of the three pools has seawater - The other two pools are heated - Animation team works, wide range of entertainment programs - Staff is friendly, welcoming, and fast - Different entrances to the sea (sandy bay for children, pier, pebble beach) - Enough sunbeds everywhere - Sunbeds and tables on the beaches are treated with a special solution, floors are regularly cleaned - Very delicious Margherita pizza in the Olympus restaurant (16:00-22:00) - Lots of varied food in the restaurants (chicken, turkey, beef, lamb; mussels, crayfish, trout, salmon; mashed potatoes, french fries, baked potatoes, rice, chickpeas, pasta etc.) - Delicious gözleme by the pool - Many bars on the hotel premises (we didn't try alcoholic drinks, but non-alcoholic drinks are tasty and refreshing; by the way, there is no bar on the beach itself) - All chefs wear gloves - There are shops on the hotel premises, the vendors are not intrusive - Lawn with turtles on the hotel premises - Cats and dogs peacefully relax on the hotel premises and on the beaches - Bus stop in front of the hotel (you can go, for example, to the city center) - Towels are changed regularly - The minibar is restocked daily (0.25l bottles with cola and fanta, carbonated water, 2 bottles of water, small juice) - Professional musicians play the piano in the lobby and during lunch in the restaurant - Close to the airport (but please note that planes fly directly over the hotel, it can be noisy at times), you are the first to be brought to the hotel - Many Russians, Germans, and Turks in the hotel The drawbacks that I have noticed: - Wi-Fi only in the lobby (Wi-Fi in the entire hotel area is chargeable: €18 per week) - Steps leading into the water from the pontoon are covered in algae, they should be cleaned periodically - Rusty handrails on the pontoon - Some umbrellas have holes and are rusty - Unpresentable umbrellas on the beach, lack of uniformity (colored umbrellas, straw umbrellas, there is also a canopy) - Never saw lifeguards on the beaches or on the pontoon, but the red flag is always up (after lunch, the sea can have strong waves) - In the room, there is rusty plumbing and a moldy sink - Only two power outlets in the room - Beach bags and bathrobes are provided upon request at the reception, don't hesitate to ask - Never saw any staff in the hotel exchange office during the week - Employees of the fur center walk the beaches and try to persuade you to go shopping with them - Muezzin calls at 5 am, then dogs bark and birds chirp (in the Park building, it can be heard very loudly, and it hinders sleeping with the balcony open) - There are flies crawling on the food at the bar, and also during dinner in the outdoor restaurant - It is a shame that there is no strawberries and cherries (I saw them being sold opposite the hotel)

We stayed at this hotel with children for the first time, in Turkey for the first time). I read a lot of reviews and was amazed upon arrival. The hotel grounds are magnificent, every corner has something (cafes, restaurants, bars, shops, playgrounds, 3 pools, one of them with seawater, just tables with beautiful chairs/ armchairs, photo zones), the sea is warm and clean. The nearby airport didn't bother us at all. Some people wrote that the noise from the airplanes is disturbing, but we didn't notice it. The room was a family room in the main building, spacious and clean enough. It was cleaned every day (sometimes we left $1 as a tip). The bar was poorly stocked, but there were so many bars around where we could already enjoy delicious cocktails. Dinner was varied and very delicious. The girls in the kids' club were nice and friendly, there was something new for the children every day. We rarely visited because we tried to spend more time swimming. We left the hotel on our own because the prices were inflated both by the hotel and the travel agency. Since there was only free internet in the lobby, we bought a tourist SIM card for $2 (2GB) at a shop near the hotel (the travel agency agent offered it for $49). My whole family was satisfied!

Grand, beautiful, with a large area. Clean and well-maintained. We stayed at the hotel in May 222 with our family and were very satisfied. Initially, we were placed in a different room than the one we had booked, but after going to the reception twice, everything was resolved and the four of us were accommodated in a separate bungalow. Well, what can I say, everything was simply magnificent, just luxury, shine, beauty. The food was delicious and diverse. We would definitely go back there again, planning for the autumn! It's definitely worth a visit, you won't regret it! And the former gaming hall, which is now a jewelry salon, is just stunning! The only downside is that the internet connection is not available everywhere.

I want to leave my review about the hotel. I flew alone for two weeks. It was a 15-minute drive from the airport. Since I was traveling alone on the plane, Coral gave me a free individual transport, a pleasant surprise indeed. I arrived at the hotel at 8 in the morning, they put a bracelet on me and escorted me to breakfast. And, of course, I was amazed by the beauty and how big the hotel is. Honestly, it's not a hotel, it's an opera theater and Sultan's palace. In the first half an hour, I probably took about 2 photos on my phone. Many critics say it's kitsch, but no, I disagree, everything is done tastefully, even the flowers in the rooms are in pots with patterns, there are brown pots everywhere, and many mirrors. So, I advise girls to bring a lot of dresses and turn their vacation into a beautiful fairy tale. They checked me in at 1 in the morning, even though the hotel was fully booked. There are many turtles on the territory, children adore them, and these turtles are really tame, they run after you and eat from your hands. The beach has small pebbles and is divided into three sections, and even though the hotel is crowded, you don't feel it because there are no crowds of people. For example, I spend half an hour sitting on the public beach, then I get a mojito and walk to the rocky part, then I go to the pier, then have a beer at the beach bar, and then have cocktails by the red pool. On the way, I stop by the pool with sea water, the water there is very warm during the day, and in the morning it's perfect. And the day goes on like this. The coffee at the hotel is very delicious, especially the strawberry milkshakes and smoothies. The food is also top-notch, it surprised me that they served borscht and smoked fish for lunch. Red salty fish was available for both lunch and dinner. Dinner took place outdoors, and on the last evening, there was a violin performance. There is a lot of meat and fish, there were even crabs, and my favorite is the honeycomb honey at breakfast. In general, lose weight in advance, you won't leave without extra pounds. The service is excellent, the bartenders are always smiling, I have never seen a gloomy one, and the waiters are very quick, they come running when you call them. I haven't seen such speed even in restaurants and cafes. There are a lot of animals, cats, and dogs, so if you have allergies or don't like animals, it's better to choose another hotel. And guys, I have a REQUEST, near the jewelry store where there are pink chairs and turtles, there is a cat, he doesn't go to the dining area because he's very timid, please feed him, he sits in the bushes, if you call him, he will come out, he's a very affectionate and talkative cat, but I feel sorry for him because the turtles are being fed and he's not. What else can I say, if I have the opportunity, I will definitely come back to this hotel. It's not just a hotel, it's a very beautiful fairytale.

Having purchased a tour to our favorite hotel SERA once again, we read recent negative reviews about this hotel. We want to clarify and lighten your choice a little. Choosing Club Sera, we were sure that we would not get food poisoning and not go hungry, we would not be neglected by the service staff (bartenders, waiters, etc.). This time, even the room was cleaned better. However, if you have been to Turkey before, you are familiar with the fact that cleaning is not consistent in any hotel. Well, considering the priorities of your vacation, I think we can overlook such a small detail. We chose the cleanest sea, a beach divided into sections, the proximity of the bar to the sunbeds, delicious and diverse dinners, with various interesting snacks prepared by the chefs. Yes, this hotel is not really suitable for children aged 6-1, there are no entertainment options, but for children aged 3-5, there is a wonderful kids club where the animation team takes care of them and provides entertainment. I have never seen such love for children anywhere else. For infants, there is a separate beach cove with sandy water, sunbeds, calm waters, shallow depth, where you can be at ease about your little one. And for adults, there are several bars, particularly surprising this season is the new Champagne bar with wonderful champagne cocktails!))))). Do we recommend the hotel? Absolutely, yes! Be cheerful and less critical, because you are going on vacation to relax, swim, and sunbathe. Wishing you all the best.

Staying at this hotel was the best experience I had in Turkey. Everything runs smoothly and works like Swiss clockwork. From check-in to check-out, from the first minute to the last, you are exactly the person they were waiting for. The grounds are clean, the ambiance is luxurious (feel like a king or queen), the food is delicious, there are numerous bars with a variety of drinks, live music throughout the day, and friendly staff. All of these factors made our stay unforgettable. I am confident that I found my hotel and will not tempt fate anymore. I want to thank administrator Maria for her exceptional professionalism and ability to help in any situation. The guest relations team, Zehra, Yasemin, and Sana, are the friendliest people in the hotel. Our chambermaid, Pinar from Sera Club, is like a busy bee who cleaned the room, changed the sheets, and performed miracles with the linen and towels every day - something I have never seen before in my life. The animation team is absolutely wonderful! You won't find such events anywhere else in Turkey. Thank you all. I highly recommend visiting this hotel.

We arrived at the hotel at 8 am, had breakfast, and were immediately checked in. I should note that check-out from the room is at 12 pm, but they extended it for us until 2 pm for free. The airport transfer was at 3 pm. The hotel reception is simply luxurious and grand. There is live piano music in the lobby bar throughout the day from 8 am to 11 pm. The bar offers a variety of beverages including tea, coffee, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. We stayed in the main building in room 132, which was spacious and had a balcony. The room was cleaned well, and the bar was stocked with water, cola, Fanta, mineral water, and juice. The bar was replenished every day. The food at the hotel was excellent and diverse. I won't describe the menu as it would simply take up too much space. Breakfast and lunch were served in the main restaurant. Dinner... that's a whole different story. Dinner took place in an open-air restaurant. It was a huge snow-white hall. The staff were amazing, working quickly and efficiently. The hotel grounds are very beautiful and well-maintained. There are three pools, one of which has seawater. There are also bars near the pools where you can grab a snack. The hotel has several restaurants: Mexican, Mongolian, sushi (you need to make reservations at the hotel lobby), and an Italian restaurant without reservations. The beach is small, but there is enough space. However, there is a problem with tourists... they reserve sunbeds at 7 am but only come to the beach at 11 am. But this is not the hotel's fault. There are various sports activities and performances by artists. Now, let's talk about the internet. Yes, the internet is only available in the lobby bar. But you came here to relax, right? You need to unwind and disconnect from the internet. There are a few small shops on the premises (but the prices are quite high). There is a bus stop near the hotel where you can take a bus to the city center. I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel was booked in advance through the tour agent Rodena Zelenograd, the girls at Rodena are experts who value the client and their nerves. Huge thanks to Yulia! Then aviation got involved, which turned out to be in debt (leasing), for which I wish the resort managers to have their vacation in cooler places. THE HOTEL!!!! It is magnificent. It's only a 2-minute drive from the airport. We were immediately accommodated in the main building, everything is clean and shining, everything is perfect. The territory is magnificent, with numerous bars and places to relax. There are no queues anywhere, even though the hotel is full! Beaches for every taste - a pier, a dam, sand, and a separate one for children. Three pools, including small slides. Turtles wander around the park. The drinks are of high quality, the food is varied and delicious. You can go to the city to visit shops and there is a market nearby on Saturdays. You have to see and experience the enjoyment of this hotel! The mini club and animation are top-notch. The reception feels like a palace, the staff is always ready to help, everyone is courteous and friendly. In this hotel, all nationalities are equal, which is already a rarity. Thanks to the management for the vacation! As always, Korel took us to the airport, even though our flight was delayed for 4 hours. If only we knew better, we would have taken a taxi. But greetings to Korel and wishes to bid farewell as warmly as they receive us! I highly recommend this hotel!

Probably my favorite hotel out of the 37 I have visited in Turkey. However, I have always been there in early March. - / - - / - / - In the hotel, all the pots, columns, pillars are in place. Still, some details have been rearranged, sofas and armchairs have been moved, and the mirrors have been removed from the park entrance. The magical door to the internal exit of the main building is in place, miraculously opening as you approach. The wrought iron chairs have new removable cushions with some mythical creatures. Kalanchoes in bloom on the tables. New table tops by the pool. - / - The welcoming guide said they had minus 5 degrees Celsius in February. Nothing frozen was noticed in the hotel, but half of the leaves on the bushes on the promenade were dry, like burnt leaves. Fresh green grass is growing underneath them! The public beach is deserted, no umbrellas, no bright colors. Only the infinitely wide strip of sand, the sea from horizon to horizon, and the monumental mountains disappearing into haze... One day in the park, some crazy people were practicing a kind of meditation, making rhythmic movements with brushes, as if spinning wool by hand from a spinning wheel - / - The weather was favorable, the first and third, fifth days were sunny. Sunday was packed! All the sun loungers were dragged to the sea, and everyone approached... The beach boys had to carry the sun loungers for over an hour, which were immediately rearranged! The gym was also packed at 5 PM! It turns out that many tourists leave the resort on regular days for excursions! The water was colder than during the New Year holidays, and limbs were freezing. Nevertheless, many still entered the water, if only for a minute. People from the Volga region remembered that in June our water is also 18 degrees Celsius, but the sun burns stronger here. - / - Second time at the hotel, we noticed two chandeliers near the entrance to the Park hotel, each consisting of 8 pieces, with 4 strands of suspension and a total of 32 suspensions and 32 crystals! - / - Sometimes we encountered a rush of guests in the restaurant, but we quickly found a table. We encountered annoyance and dissatisfaction from some people regarding this issue. The waiters cleared the table quickly and on time. - / -

The worst hotel we have ever stayed at. We have something to compare it to. We have stayed at a 4-star hotel before (Azkaimak Marina in Kemer), and it doesn't even come close to this hotel in terms of food. The food is a nightmare, with very limited choices, and it's not tasty at all. On top of that, they serve the food in a small dining hall with no seating available because the hotel is packed with conference attendees. The food is placed right next to the elevator exit in the hallway, so if someone is serving themselves, you can't pass by. The so-called restaurant has dirty dishes, and they bring beer in unwashed glasses with traces of red lipstick. And the most important thing is the renovation in the main restaurant, which is located one floor above the reception. So, you won't be able to sit and enjoy the quietness. Live music feels like torture when you hear it in the background of a working jackhammer. And it's also a pleasure to wake up at 8 AM during your vacation because of the jackhammer, while living on higher floors.

Complete disappointment We have stayed at this hotel 4 times before. We mostly go there in January. This time, we didn't bother with choosing and flew back to Sera because of its large territory and delicious food. The main building is under renovation. Everyone is being accommodated in the Club building. We could always grab some gözleme and pide. But this year, there was none of that. Even though it is advertised in the winter concept. Poor people were bringing a cup of tea from the main building to warm up by the sea. Is it really that difficult to at least serve tea by the sea? It's not costly after all. The main restaurant was closed. We had to eat at the hotel club for one day. Well, it's ridiculous, my friends. There are very few dining tables and even fewer spaces for food. The buffet started near the elevator and ended there too. The next day, they moved the food to the Royal Hall, which is next to the restaurant in the main building. The hall is nice and there was enough space for everyone. But there was very little food. The selection was minimal. The food was no different from a 3-star hotel. I understand that renovations are costly, but the tourists have nothing to do with it. We came to your hotel and we want to eat properly. However, every day, a whole range of food was given away for burgers. Plate 1 had buns. Plate 2 had pickles. Plate 3 had green salad. Plate 4 had meat patties. Plate 5 had very greasy French fries. And this was just one or two rows of hot food. We met with other tourists. There are many returning tourists in Sera, including us. Everyone who has been here in previous years is shocked by what's happening! Your hotel has dropped in quality so much and, of course, like us, no one wants to return to Sera anymore!

Hello everyone reading my review, I hope it will help someone. Twelve years had passed since our last trip to Turkey because we always vacation in winter, and I have a lot of work in summer. But this time, I promised my wife to put work aside and take a week-long trip to Turkey to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary together. We chose a hotel that would be located near the airport. We arrived in Antalya at 7 am on Turkish Airlines, on a Boeing 737-8. I was unpleasantly surprised that the seats didn't recline; my back was quite stiff after five and a half hours! By 8 am, we were already at the hotel, which was a 15-minute drive from the airport. By the way, when we checked out, we were the last ones to be picked up, and within 2 minutes, we were at the airport. The hotel immediately offered us a room, so we didn't have to wait until 2 pm. We booked a room in the park building since there were no Pegasus tour packages available for the other buildings. I tried to negotiate at the reception, but Maria, a Russian-speaking girl, explained that all the other buildings were fully booked, and there were no rooms available even for an extra fee. The room was fine, although small, but had everything we needed. There were no bathrobes or beach bags, but after calling reception, they brought us both within ten minutes. I've never seen so many mirrors in hotels before; there were four in our room alone, and one every few meters in the corridor! The room cleaning was average; it didn't depend on tips. The maids simply ignored the dust, although they changed the bed linen and towels on time. Upon check-out, we extended our room until the evening with no problems for ten euros per hour. The hotel territory is very large. It takes about 9 steps from the park building to reach the sea. The entire area is beautiful and well-maintained. Clay pots of various sizes hang on all the trees, and there are large vases on the ground. The pools are practically spotless. The staff begins cleaning everything near the pools and on the beach from 6 am. The beach has fine sand. In the first few days, there were big waves, as if after a storm, and there was some litter and drops of fuel oil in the water. At first, we couldn't understand what we had stepped in and why our feet and flip-flops were dirty, but then we read online that there was an accident with an oil tanker near Antalya, and a small amount of oil ended up in the sea. However, the water was very warm. On the fourth day of our vacation, the sea became completely calm, and the water became crystal clear but incredibly cold. We couldn't get used to it; it felt around 2 degrees colder than the lakes back home in the Urals. However, if you walk a few meters away from the hotel along the public beach, the water is much warmer and more comfortable. It's as if there is a mountain river with icy water flowing into the sea near the hotel, but I hadn't read about this peculiar feature in any other review. When the water is slightly rough, it mixes, and while swimming, you feel alternating patches of warm and cold water. But when it becomes calm, the water becomes just very, very cold! Maybe some people like it, but personally, I prefer warm seawater! By 9 am, all the sunbeds were occupied, both on the beach and by the pools. Although there were some available on certain days, it didn't bother us much since we always go for a swim in the sea or the pool before breakfast, around 7 am. And during that time, everything is practically free. The food is very diverse. They always have beef, lamb, liver, turkey, and chicken prepared in various ways. There are stews, fried, boiled, and grilled options. Boiled tongue is always available among the cold appetizers. The fish options include sea bass, perch, salmon, tuna, and dorado. There is a wide variety of pastries and desserts, so watch out for your figure! Near the Garden restaurant, there is a café that opens at 4 pm, where they serve excellent coffee and many pastries! Now I'm thinking about how to lose the four extra kilograms gained in seven days! We went to the Mongolian à la carte restaurant, it was unusual but nothing more than that. You fill a big plate with seafood or various raw meats, and they cook it all on a hot plate resembling a stone. The Mexican restaurant was closed, and I'm not a fan of sushi. Fruits were served every day: plums, apricots, apples, quince, cherries, melon, watermelon. However, everything except watermelon was unripe. I don't understand why they serve unripe fruits. There are various food points throughout the hotel territory, serving different types of food throughout the day. Near the pools, they make Turkish snacks and flatbreads. You won't stay hungry. The attitude towards Russians, both inside and outside the hotel, is very good. Now, about the downside, but again, this is our subjective opinion. There are a lot of skinny cats and large dogs, the size of German Shepherds, on the hotel grounds. I, personally, don't mind them, but since we went to the beach early, it was very unpleasant to see piles of waste all over the sand where people walked barefoot. At 7 am, you really have to watch where you step on the beach and near the pools. Later, the staff will clean everything, and by 8-9 am, you won't see anything, but the memory remains. Also, behind the last row of sunbeds on the beach, all the cats turned it into their toilet in the sand, so there was a corresponding smell during the hot weather. I am a cat lover myself; I have a cute cat at home, but, honestly, it was annoying. Every evening, someone performs in the hotel or there

Good day! We stayed at the hotel from May 27th to June 1st with Sunmar company and flew with Turkish Airlines. The flight lasted 4-5 hours across half of Europe. They serve food, tea, coffee, juice, and wine on the plane. Since we were the only ones from our flight at this hotel, we had an individual transfer and arrived at the hotel at 11 am. The check-in took exactly 5 minutes, and we had our room keys! We intentionally chose the Clab building because it is the closest to the sea and the interior of the room is amazing! Now, let's talk about the hotel itself. The room was not big, but perfect for two people. As we mentioned before, the territory is very green and beautiful with many great spots for photos. The beach is not large, but considering that there are 3 pools, a pier, and a children's beach, people spread out across the territory and there were enough sun loungers for everyone. The food was very good! There are 4 à la carte restaurants, 2 beach bars, one near the pier and the other near the pool on the beach (the beach bars close at 4-3 pm, and then the so-called Garden Bar opens). There are also 2 cafés near the red pool, with 2 more bars there. Conclusion! There are no problems with this hotel! Breakfasts are served mainly in the main restaurant from 7 am, and on the beach near the pool from 8-3. Lunches are also served in two restaurants, and dinner is only served outside in the center of the hotel, between the two cafés. Once again, about the food! There are plenty of greens, salads, side dishes, fish, and meat - everything is very delicious and fresh, I'd say 5++++. However, despite all the positives, the hotel left a mixed impression. They claim to be Ultra All-Inclusive and Blue, but it's not entirely true. Firstly, the internet is only available in the lobby, and in the rooms, it is only available at an additional cost. And secondly, with such service in the rooms, and the way the reception handles inquiries, with such cleaning and beach security, it's not up to Blue standards. And the MAIN problem for me is the INABILITY to have a cup of coffee or at least tea in the morning before 7 am when the restaurant opens! After addressing this issue with the Reception, they said they are aware of it and have informed management a long time ago, and... we're waiting (what about the guests?). I asked if it was too expensive to leave the coffee machine plugged in, and they said NO. And that's where it ended! In the morning, after the conversation, I simply approached the coffee machine, removed the cover, plugged it in, and in five minutes, I had coffee! You should have seen people's reactions to me having coffee! The first question was "Is it coffee? Where?" You should have heard their words of gratitude for the possibility to have coffee in the morning by the sea!!! So we take note of that (if the machine doesn't work when plugged in, it's not locked, just open it up and there is a toggle switch inside to turn it on). We take advantage of it! The beach! The ground is not sandy, but rather small gravel (honestly, everywhere we've been there was sand), so it's not very comfortable to walk on. The beach security is lacking! It is practically non-existent, and people from the nearby public beach often freely enter and swim in the hotel's beach area. The paths on the beach (wooden flooring) are not swept at all! When walking barefoot on the solid flooring, you can feel the gravel under your feet very clearly. An example of the terrible beach service! In the second half of our stay, after lunch, the waves started washing up clumps of machine oil or oil mixed with sand onto the beach. Considering that the ground is gravel, nothing was visible, and people who touched it with their feet, hands, or sat on the shore, ended up covered in oil. And instead of warning people about the danger and not allowing them into the sea, the security guards in the distant corner of the beach provided gasoline and clean rags. People, unaware of the situation, continued to walk into this mess. Well, in conclusion, despite all the misunderstandings, the hotel is actually quite good! It may have been just our experience, but we still had a very good time! I posted a video review of the hotel on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/ekYWUncLc and here is another link about the food at the hotel: https://youtu.be/PwtwK2rd9Y. Enjoy watching!

The memories are still fresh, so I'll write a review about the hotel. The plane and the transfer to the hotel are not relevant, so I'll skip over that. 1. Reception service: We arrived at the hotel at 4 am. The transfer from the airport was for 8 people, 4 couples. We all had our documents processed (the accompanying letter from TopHotels was carelessly thrown aside, without even looking at it), we were given wristbands and told to be free until around 8 am. After the overnight flight, we were tired and hadn't slept at all... we lay down on the lobby sofas and dozed off. Around 7 am, there was movement in the lobby - guests started moving towards the restaurant for breakfast. We were also offered breakfast. After breakfast, at 7:30, we went to the reception desk again. The newly arriving guests were already being processed and receiving their room keys. We went to clarify - and what about us? The same receptionist who processed us at 4 am told us again - you'll be ready by 8. So there we were, 8 people, sitting in the chairs, looking at the reception desk and they looking at us. Waiting. We waited until exactly 8, when the same receptionist, who processed us at 4 am (why did we have to wait for agonizing 4 hours???? if the room was ready), condescendingly told us to follow this young man in the blue t-shirt (the guys in blue t-shirts are constantly in the reception area, they are responsible for luggage. Not professionals at all. They allow discussions about hotel guests, make jokes, talk among themselves, laugh at the situation with the tourists who have to wait and sleep on the sofas. These observations were made on the first and subsequent days). 2. Room and accommodation The young man in the blue t-shirt escorted us to room 711 in the Park building. Very convenient location - in a separate cozy hall, for 6-7 rooms, beautiful carpets, mirrors, chandeliers, sofas. Quiet. The main corridor leads to the elevator, where all the movement of tourists is, but in our room it is quiet. The only question was - there was no balcony. But everything is solvable: in the block where the room numbers start with 6, take the elevator to the 4th floor and there is a shared balcony where it's always sunny and breezy, swimsuits dry instantly. Thoughtful tourists left ropes there for hanging clothes. We used this balcony frequently. Very convenient. The room itself is cozy, decorated in a classic style, no bright patterns or gold. Just great. We were very worried that we would be assigned a green room, which would not fit our taste at all. Spacious bathroom, hairdryer, shampoo-gel-conditioner (very weak, so we bought suitable ones at Migros), large towels, one medium towel per person, plus a towel for feet. The minibar was filled and replenished regularly without any complaints. The room was cleaned daily and it was of good quality. 3. Guest service Jasemin is the best hotel employee! All the questions we asked this girl were resolved 100%. We asked for bathrobes, extra sheets, made reservations for a la carte restaurants, consulted on where to exchange money, how to get to stores and bazaars, ordered lunch boxes for departure... everything was done promptly and with a smile. She is clearly in her element! I know that the management reads all the reviews - please make sure to acknowledge and reward her for her quality work. We are very satisfied with Jasemin's work! Well done, Jasemin, keep it up! You made our vacation as comfortable as possible! 4. Hotel grounds and interior The hotel grounds are lush and green. The hotel has been around for many years, the greenery is abundant. There are many places for taking photos. We spent a couple of days doing sports orienteering. The interior of the hotel is grand, not suitable for people in swimsuits and shorts. The hotel cleaners are perfect. 5. Sea, beach, pier The beach is sandy! For a long time, we avoided Sera because we thought, based on the advertising photos, that the beach was rocky and the only access to the water was through the pier. But that's not the case... the access to the water from the sandy beach is excellent, there is a children's shallow area, and you can also go down to the sea from the promenade through the stairs. The beach was enjoyable! We liked that there was a hotel staff member taking care of the beach tables between the loungers, constantly cleaning them with cleaning products. There is a chair next to the loungers, it's convenient to place beach bags and clothes on it. The mattresses are soft and intact, the loungers are sturdy. The canopies are whole and continuous. The management needs to address the issue with the towels. I still couldn't understand why towels are left abandoned on the beach, especially since the card should be collected upon check-out, and there is a 1 euro penalty for losing the card or the towel. Other guests reserve the loungers at night with the abandoned towels, and it's not certain they will return to those loungers. Other people in the morning may not have anywhere to place their belongings. The management should decide on a strategy to remove all the unnecessary items from the loungers at night, so that guests wouldn't have the opportunity to reserve the loungers overnight. In the morning, it's understandable that people will claim their loungers early, but that's a small number. It was nice to have the option of having drinks and snacks brought from the bar on trays. The guests were responsible and brought back dirty dishes to the tables. Although the waiters constantly collect the dishes. There is order and cleanliness on the beach. There are dogs, but they are not intrusive and mostly sleep. They didn't cause any discomfort to us. 5. Food About the food, they write in every review, and we confirm - plentiful, delicious, and worthy. Everything is always available and never runs out. The à la carte options are great. They make delicious coffee in the lobby (they also make it in the beach bar), but the cocktails in the lobby are weak in quality. However, in the Cip bar (cocktail bar), the guys in black shirts, Onur and Cavit, make simply professional drinks. It's very enjoyable to watch them work. The quality is top-notch. Nazli, at the champagne bar, can also make any cocktail based on champagne. The main thing is to understand the working hours of these two establishments and become a regular visitor. You will experience a lot of positive emotions from this hotel feature! I definitely want to highlight Gözleme near the ice cream. We have tried them in Turkey many times, and Hanife's are the most delicious. The hotel management should definitely recognize the work of this attentive, polite, friendly, and hardworking woman. It's not easy for her to spend half a day working with a scraper near the hot platform and preparing such tasty treats! 6. Animation The animation in the hotel is divided into two categories: 1. Professional - invited pianists, guitarists, singers, musicians, dance groups, and even a symphony orchestra!! They also have professional sports trainers with their equipment, such as jumping ropes, water bicycles (!!!), kickboxing training with a professional trainer, and so on. There are no complaints here, the quality is outstanding! We are very happy to witness and even participate in the activities with the professionals! It's simply fantastic! 2. Hotel animators - here it's a bit sadder. The main animator is a somewhat arrogant, unapproachable type who announces the daily program from the animator's booth in different languages (not always clearly and audibly). But he is very proud of his mission. A terrible narcissist. Mario is a typical animator from a 3-star youth hotel. His main mission is to charm the female guests and then take them to a club outside the hotel for a fee. He was in charge of darts. How can someone conduct this game so ineptly, boringly, and unclearly for the players??? We witnessed a conflict that Mario started during a dart game with a hotel guest, which is very unprofessional behavior for an animator. We had a bad impression of Mario. Andrey (in charge of bocce and water polo) and Katya (yoga and pilates) are novice animators. They are very kind, calm, well-mannered, and pleasant to talk to. Unfortunately, they don't have anyone to learn from in terms of animation. The hotel management needs to think about canopies in the bocce and yoga areas. There are many guests who want to engage in these activities, but not all of them are willing to go out in the sun. They need to find a solution, either with a new location or by providing more comfort in the existing areas. We didn't have children with us, but we kept an eye on the children's animators. We saw them doing clay modeling, painting on easels, children running around in the evenings with face paint or balloons. They take care of the children. There is definitely children's animation for children aged 5-11 years. 7. Spa complex The sauna is very good, spacious, hot - 74 degrees, with 3 sessions of 15 minutes each, with a break for the jacuzzi - just perfect! Opposite the sauna is a wet steam room, the thermometer showed 46 degrees. The hammam is good (the door is constantly open, but no one stops you from closing it when you lie down on the stone), the stone is hot, very comfortable. The staff are friendly and unobtrusive, they provide a towel for the sauna and a large one for the shower. There is shampoo and conditioner in the washing area, as well as a towel for the head in the changing room. 8. Hotel Guide Arriving with 8 people on the same flight to the same hotel, we were given different times to meet the guide (maybe it's a habit from the COVID times, or there may be some other reason). We had one-on-one conversations with the guide from Coral-SanMayr, Milyausha. Milya is an emotionally reserved, tired girl from repetitive meetings. We exchanged contacts, showed vouchers and return tickets. She gave us some information about the hotel. Excursions were not forced upon us - hooray! She offered a free transfer to the Agora shopping center. But in order to avail it, we had to visit either a fur shop or a jewelry store. We agreed. It was not easy to get away from the jewelry salespeople. The shopping center was fantastic, and the prices were ridiculously low. If it weren't for the weight restrictions of our airline, it would've been a shopaholic's paradise that never ended! The return transfer made us a little nervous - they were 15 minutes late for us, replaced the driver and the transport. As Milya said, nothing really happened, they didn't leave you behind, so it's all good. We paid with Mir cards in the shopping center - they are accepted everywhere, with no commission and a good exchange rate. We also withdrew some cash from an ATM located about 15-20 meters to the left of the hotel. The fee for one withdrawal was 1 ruble. We paid with cash in Migros, pharmacies, and small souvenir shops. Overall, we are very satisfied with our vacation. We might consider coming back during the off-season with our children.

I was in Sere from January 1st to 8th, for the third time. Prior to this, I was there exactly a year ago and then again in October 221. So, partly my review will be based on comparison. Check-in went well, I requested a room in the green building on the 2nd floor, closer to the staircase - and that's what I was given, even before 2pm, so I didn't have to wait much. The room had 2 bathrobes, 2 pairs of slippers, but no kettle (although they provide it upon request, I think). I hung a "do not disturb" sign, so I can't comment on the cleaning, but the premises are always clean, and there's always a trolley in the corridors where you can take toilet paper and shampoo and shower gel bottles. Last year, they gave a gift upon check-in and check-out - nice candies, but now they don't do that anymore. There is no beach bar anymore, champagne bar is also closed. They used to provide pide on the beach, and there were gezelme in the street bar. But now they don't. And that's bad because you don't always want to go to a restaurant, and the pide is very delicious. There are no longer bicycle rides, which used to happen twice a day and gathered a large number of people under the guidance of animators. It's a pity. Lunches and dinners are good. There are no delicacies, but everything is very tasty and varied. There are plenty of quality fruits, vegetables in all forms, chicken and turkey, meat, sometimes liver, and delicious fried fish every day. The presentation is beautiful. The dishes and tablecloths are clean. You can always find a free table. Thankfully, there are no screens, which is a huge plus. The staff is all friendly. Security guards, cleaners, waiters, and bartenders - they all work well. Special thanks for the high professionalism to Maria at the reception, Camille and Irene from guest relations. You are the face of the hotel and the most pleasant impression of it! Good luck in your work and have pleasant guests! In terms of infrastructure, there are shops: souvenirs, clothing-shoes-bags, and a huge jewelry store, where you will be greeted as an esteemed guest, offered tea, coffee, and have a heartfelt conversation and receive expert advice. I highly recommend the jewelry store! By the way, when the store employees started examining my earrings, it turned out that one of the stones (cubic zirconia) had fallen out, they invited a jeweler and he fixed it for me absolutely for free, even though I said I would pay whatever was necessary. They absolutely refused to take any money, so I had to thank them with chocolate.)) There's a photographer, a tattoo master, and I visited the hairdresser in the SPA area (didn't use other services). There are a lot of animals on the hotel grounds and in the park. It seemed to me that they are not being looked after now. There used to be feeding stations and water dispensers, and the cats were affectionate, but now they are hungry and eat anything guests bring from the restaurant. Although there's a notice not to feed them on the premises since they eat somewhere else (?). Some dogs are clearly sick - with wounds and skin problems. The hotel administration needs to pay attention to this, it's sad for the animals. Your turtles also seem to have disappeared somewhere. I found only one, but there were about 15 not long ago (?) I wish the WiFi was free not only in the lobby. I paid 18 euros for 7 days - the quality is a C minus. There was a magnificent concert on Christmas night! (There wasn't one last year) A huge thank you for this show, everyone had a great time. The concert was long, all performances were professional, diverse, and it was interesting and fun! Would I return to Sere? If I catch a low price, then yes.

Returned yesterday. Our best vacation ever. The place is beautiful, with a nice beach (and yes, we also reserved beach chairs at 7 am))) because we got used to one specific spot and wanted only that one. Many people, many children. And dogs, cats, and turtles. The service was good. Everyone was great, attentive, and diligent. The entertainment was also top-notch. You can always find something to do. Yoga, aqua aerobics, pilates (a very sweet girl named Katya), trampolines and bicycles underwater, and kangaroo aerobics - everything was cool. Bars, restaurants, live music. The staff was very attentive, always ready to help and advise. The main thing is to be polite, friendly, and then your vacation will be wonderful. It's better not to buy anything in the hotel shops :))) they are just trying to rip you off. Cross the road from the hotel, and everything is three times cheaper. Internet is only available in the lobby. The food was delicious, abundant, and beautifully presented. We recommend getting rosé wine. And even better, Malibu and Baileys :))) There is ceramic tile everywhere, and it can be slippery. You need to be careful. The beach towels were just amazing!!! :)))) The sea is warm, with pebbles. In September, we sharpened our skis again to go to Sereu.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel from January 5th to January 12th, 2022. We purchased the tour for 65,000 rubles, including a travel insurance of 5,000 rubles, two weeks before the trip. We were looking for a hotel, knowing that it would not be a beach vacation. We wanted something close to the sea, but in a city setting, beautiful, with good food, cozy and with pleasant entertainment programs. We got everything we wanted. Club Sera Hotel is a beauty, everything matches the descriptions presented on the official website. It is pompous (but in moderation), immediately creating the impression that you have entered a world of luxury and wealth, uplifting your mood and setting you up for a relaxing and carefree time. We were assigned room 1329 (3rd floor of the Elegant building), and then, due to renovations in the main restaurant, we were moved to room 1822 (8th floor of the same building). The view from room 1822 is superb. All even-numbered rooms have windows facing the bay and the promenade, with a view of the Duden Waterfall! It's very beautiful!!! Odd-numbered rooms have a view of the city and a side view of the sea (also not bad). The room itself is spacious, cozy, with a good bed, TV, safe, minibar (without beer), but there is no kettle and tea/coffee set. Housekeeping is regular. The balcony is large. The hotel corridors are wide, bright, decorated with paintings, flowers, and mirrors. Mirrors EVERYWHERE! It seems like they give the hotel its identity: spacious and full of light and volume. The food at the hotel is good, not gourmet, but everything is varied and delicious (standard for a good five-star hotel). The à la carte restaurant surprised us with its sophistication! I must note that it was only better at Camelias. The territory is not large (again, this is a relative concept!). Cozy, well-maintained, and beautiful. The hotel's "promenade," improvised to resemble the ruins of an ancient city with columns and arches, deserves attention. The waves of the raging sea during a storm added a special charm to it. The staff is very polite, friendly, and attentive. The bartenders do their job well, the restaurant staff is formal, and the lobby bar staff is very warm and friendly. Especially the female bartenders who smile all the time, sing something, joke around. The swimming pool is nice, there is a jacuzzi, and it is popular among guests. The sauna and steam room are good, but the hammam is cold and uncomfortable. We spent Christmas night at +5 degrees Celsius. It was an excellent theatrical performance with several acts, and before that, there was a performance by opera singers accompanied by violin and piano!!! After that, there was a great disco. Across the road from the hotel's main entrance, there is a bus stop. Buses number 1, 13, and 18 run to Antalya at short intervals. It is easy to reach the center of the Old Town. Keep in mind that Antalya is a city of three million people and occupies a large territory, so depending on where you are going, the journey may take from 15 to 45 minutes. You will need to buy a transport card (available near the bus stop) and link it to a Turkish Ches-kod (the seller will do this for you). For two adults (2 cards) for a round trip to the center of the Old Town, you will have to pay 35 rubles. Payment for the card can only be made in cash (dollars, rubles, lira). And bus fare is only accepted through the transport card, as it used to be before, a Visa card won't work. If you take a taxi, you will have to spend at least 5 dollars. We liked the hotel, it would be nice to come back here in the summer.

During my first winter trip to Turkey, I chose a hotel with an indoor pool to create the illusion of being by the sea. This hotel offered a good spa area with a hammam, sauna, and pool. Here's what I found: ACCOMMODATION: A big plus is that the hotel is only a 2-minute drive from the airport. Despite the proximity to the airport, the planes won't bother you much. Upon arrival, your luggage will be taken and brought to the lobby for you. The lobby is standard with check-in at 12 pm, so you might have to wait on the couches. By the way, the couches are very comfortable and soft. I even slept on them, covering myself with a jacket. Free internet is available in the lobby, and there is paid internet throughout the entire property, as well as a variety of cool non-alcoholic drinks (I don't drink alcohol, so I can't comment on that). Guest relations were good, but they could have been better. They answered my questions, but it felt like I had to pull the information out of them. You have to ask for bathrobes, they won't offer them to you. You also have to make reservations for a la carte dining yourself. I found out about a la carte by chance, overhearing a disgruntled lady complaining about the limited menu. That's how I got on the list. I didn't notice any rudeness, as some write about. Everything was to the point. The lobby bartenders were excellent, always smiling, serving and pouring drinks almost 24/7. The reception was also friendly and smiling. Don't forget that you need to pay for the internet and all the services you used on the day before your departure. They will remind you by leaving a note under your door, but keep it in mind. I didn't notice any downsides, except for my hotel guide, but that's more of a complaint towards the tour operator. ROOM: I got a room in the Club building. It's the second building after the main one (I might be wrong with the name). They lead you to your room, rolling your suitcase. The room is opened with a key card, and they give you two cards, even though I was staying alone. The room is certainly very bright. Malachite shades echo with the color of flamingos, and everything is in an Eastern style. It's all mirrors and vases. It feels like you've come to the wedding of a gypsy baron. There is a small sofa that serves as a hanger. I had a view of the sea, so I fell asleep and woke up to the sound of waves. They give you slippers, which tore on the third day. Luckily, they gave two pairs right away. There is a free safe in the room. The trash bins are very small and inconvenient, so I used bags and threw the garbage there. Shampoo, conditioner, and soap are provided in normal quantities. The hair conditioner is like water, so bring your own. The shampoo is decent. The minibar is restocked every day for free. Only mineral water and regular water are provided there. Everything else is sweet fizzy drinks and diluted juice. It was quiet at night, I couldn't hear the neighbors. Only once some drunk people made noise outside, but they stopped quickly. I slept well, but the pillows weren't very comfortable, the filling rolled up into balls. Negative aspects: - There is nowhere to dry swimsuits, towels, etc. There are no chairs in the room. The drying rack on the balcony doesn't count because it rained the whole week I was there. It was not enjoyable to dry everything in the closet. - Attention, there are only TWO electrical outlets in the entire room. I'm not kidding. One in the room and the other in the bathroom. And even the one in the room was very far from the bed, so you can't lie in bed and use your phone. Make sure to bring power strips and extensions. - Housekeeping gets only one point. I'm not a demanding tourist and I understand that it's impossible to achieve perfect cleanliness in such a large hotel. So, usually in such hotels, I hang a "Do not disturb" sign on the door, and after 2-3 days, I change it to "Please clean the room" and leave 3-5 dollars on the bed with a note in the local language (Google Translate to the rescue) with a simple request to clean the room well. Usually, this worked for me, and they cleaned well. This was enough for 2-3 days, and then the process was repeated. However, this life hack didn't work here, and in fact, they cleaned even worse than without a tip. I went out to the balcony and rubbed dirt on my slippers, clear footprints were visible near the balcony. So after cleaning with a tip, this dirt remained untouched. They don't clean the floors at all, the mirrors and surfaces aren't wiped. Even the large trash remained lying next to the wall. I didn't leave any tips after that and didn't let anyone into the room. It's pointless. Absolutely disgusting! - The shower smells of sewage, and this odor spreads throughout the room. So I had to leave the exhaust fan in the shower on the whole time I was in the room just to somehow get rid of the smell, even though the hotel in its brochures encourages guests to save electricity and not to keep it on unnecessarily. Unfortunately, I couldn't figure out how to turn on the overhead shower, so I showered with the hand shower, which had to be held in my hands. TERRITORY AND SERVICES: The territory around the hotel is very large, so it is filled with various locations such as shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars, which I got confused with and most of them were closed. This is why I don't like big hotels. I managed to find my way to the sea somehow. There are dogs and cats running around the entire hotel grounds. They even lie on the sofas and chairs in the lobby. The hotel staff tries to remove them gently, but it doesn't really solve the situation. If you sit in the lobby to have a coffee and a pastry, be prepared for a cat or dog to jump into your plate. I love animals and I'm always happy to see them, but I have never seen such a large number of them before. Some of the dogs, about 9 percent, are sterilized, as indicated by the clip on their ear, and I didn't feel any aggression from them, but sterilization does not eliminate the risk of rabies. People with allergies definitely shouldn't go there. Although the entire territory is not fully utilized, it is kept clean. I witnessed renovations in the large pool, which is great. I will be able to swim in the new and clean pool during the summer. They are constantly sweeping, cleaning, and washing everything. You can take a sunbed on the beach and enjoy the waves. I even saw someone swimming, but that's not for everyone. There are more dogs on the beach than in the hotel area, but most of them are also sterilized and they all seem to be very hungry. The hotel puts a lot of effort into entertainment and doesn't skimp on it. You have a live piano in the lobby every day, karaoke, yoga, Zumba, and they even invited a violinist who played well. DJs, cover bands, disco, and animation constantly invite you to various activities. They also do face painting for kids. Overall, you won't be bored and this is a big plus for the hotel. Well done! The lobby bar in my building was a bit smaller. They had a variety of delicious drinks there, including all kinds of coffee, mint tea, cocktails, and smoothies. You can also get pastries with your coffee. They start working from 6 PM. FOOD: Everything is standard, nothing special to mention. Meat, vegetables, pasta, greens, desserts. It's all the same as usual. I didn't go hungry. The restaurant was crowded, but I always managed to find a seat. À la carte is served like in a good restaurant. You can choose a couple of appetizers, salads, and main dishes. I ate so much, even though I only ordered two dishes. They offer drinks, wine, desserts, and play calm music. Overall, it's a nice change of pace. SPA: This is what I came for, and honestly, I was very disappointed. Firstly, the indoor pool is located in the spa salon, so you can only access it through them. And the spa closes at 7 PM. What about swimming after dinner and before bed? Unfortunately, it's not possible. But that's okay. When you enter, they give you two towels: one for your body and a checkered one to place in the sauna. There are lockers in the changing rooms, but most of the locks are missing. So you can't leave your belongings there. The entrance to the pool is blocked by an automatic door, which you have to approach and wait a few seconds before it opens. It was amusing to watch those who didn't know this fact. Secondly, the water in the pool is around 25 degrees Celsius, at best. Sometimes even lower. I don't usually get cold easily, but I was really uncomfortable! It's cold to swim there. And getting out of the water is even worse. There is a jacuzzi nearby, where the water is 26 degrees Celsius. For the first three seconds, it's warm, but then it gets cold again. The pool area is also very cold. You can only lie on the sunbeds in your bathrobe. Furthermore, the spa has a hammam and a sauna. Both of them are "cold." The sauna barely reaches 6 degrees Celsius, but you can create some steam. There is a bucket with a ladle. The hammam is not great either. Lots of steam, but it's all concentrated near the ceiling, so you have to climb up to the back of the seat. There is a relaxation area with reclining chairs in semi-darkness, but it's also cold there. Overall, the spa area is what I came for, but unfortunately, I only went there 3-4 times and didn't go back after that. I didn't feel like spending time there. It's strange that the hotel didn't take care of providing a comfortable environment for people in the spa during the winter. I should also mention the spa treatments offered. They are simply too expensive. I wanted to get a Thai massage there (they do have Thai masseuses), and they quoted me $9 for an hour of Thai massage. And this was during the off-season. There is some spa program for 55 euros or dollars, but I didn't even bother looking at it after seeing such outrageous prices. I found a hammam nearby that offered massages for $38, and they steamed, soaped, gave me a foam massage, a regular massage, served tea, and gave me gifts. Bonus: they even provided transportation to and from the hotel. I don't know what the spa at the hotel expects or if anyone actually buys their services, but they need to be more realistic with their prices. Overall, the hotel is okay. There are things to do during the winter, so you won't get bored. There is a bus stop right next to the hotel where you can easily reach the city center within a minute and explore the old town. You can buy a bus card at the Western Union across from the hotel, where they can also link your HES code to the card and add money to it. Do I recommend the hotel? Generally, yes. To those who enjoy big hotels with large grounds and lots of people and everything else that comes with it. Will I come back here myself? Most likely not. They should first improve the spa area and make it comfortable in terms of temperature, as well as lower the price for massages. And of course, they need to improve the cleanliness in the rooms. Nobody wants to stay in a pigsty for 8 days after paying their own money.

We arrived at the hotel on June 2nd for 11 nights. There were two of us. We arrived at the hotel at 8 o'clock. The transfer from the airport took 17 minutes. At the reception, they told us to wait for the room to be ready and at 1 o'clock, they offered us room 712. The room was on the first floor - a stuffy cell with a window grill. We went back to the reception and explained that it was not suitable for us to stay there and it would be problematic and uncomfortable. Thanks to the reception staff who positively resolved the issue of moving to another room. We had to wait until 2 p.m. for the new room to be ready. And here we are in the new room, room 724. And in a great mood!!! Room and facilities: The room had everything for a comfortable stay. The furniture and plumbing were in excellent condition. Good room lighting. The bathroom had shampoo and a hairdryer. There was a mirror. The floor was tiled. There was a small fridge in the room that was stocked with drinks every day - juice, Coca-Cola, small bottles of sparkling water, and two bottles of water. The room had central air conditioning that worked very well. The floor in the room was laminate. The sound insulation in the room wasn't great... you could hear if someone was singing in the neighboring rooms. There were thick curtains on the windows. There was a small balcony. The balcony overlooked the roof of the first floor. There was a table and two chairs on the balcony. It faced east. There was practically no sun all day. It was not hot in the room. There was a spacious electronic safe, free of charge. There was enough space for clothes in the closets. The door locked with an electronic lock. The hotel had good internet, but it was not suitable for video calls. Internet was only free in the lobby of the Elegance and Club Cera buildings. Room cleaning: The housekeeper cleaned the room well, mostly after lunch, at a convenient time for us. Reception: If there were any issues, you could turn to them for help or call them. Across from the reception, there were guest relation desks where you could go with questions. Restaurant: The restaurant had good food. There was a wide selection of dishes. The staff was polite and attentive. Nobody stood idly by. The waiters made an effort to quickly clear the tables and serve the guests. The staff was very attentive to the tourists. Dinner was held outdoors. Everything was very beautiful, but not practical. Sometimes incidents occurred. Local cats constantly divided the territory, and tourists could suffer in these fights. If the cats were not fed, this wouldn't happen. Bars: We liked the drinks in the bars. Especially the coffee and champagne. Beach: Beach loungers and umbrellas were free. Beach towels had to be obtained at the pool area on the way to the beach. To do this, you had to give the staff member the card, which was given at check-in. There were dogs living and playing on the beach. Sometimes they could take a slipper or lie on a beach bed with a towel. It was harmless. The dogs were friendly. The sea entrance was quite comfortable. It was mostly sand and fine pebbles. The sea was clean. There were no waves in the sea until 12 o'clock. There were no jellyfish. The wind was infrequent, only after 11 o'clock. Animators would come at 1 p.m. and invite everyone to a workout by the pool and various games. They had a difficult job. Sometimes they were busy until the evening, they didn't even have time to swim. Thanks to Andrey for playing bocce. Near the beach: Late breakfast, gözleme, pide, and ice cream were served. There was also a decent selection of drinks. Animation and entertainment: There were various concerts and events in the evening. We enjoyed it. Overall impression of the hotel: The hotel was in good technical condition. The territory was a separate story. Everything was very beautiful. Exploring the hotel grounds was a great pleasure. The hotel was conveniently located near the airport. The flights of planes over the hotel were a separate free show. On the day of departure from the hotel, the bus that provided the transfer to the airport took us to Terminal 1 instead of Terminal 2. Thanks to the driver who stressed us out and allowed us to take a taxi at our own expense to Terminal 2. Without this experience, our vacation wouldn't have been complete. Thanks to all the hotel staff for their attention to us and for taking care of us during our stay! We liked everything very much!!!

We fell in love with this hotel back in 2018. Then the pandemic started and our trip got postponed for three years, and finally in May, we arrived at our beloved hotel! After visiting many hotels in Turkey over the past four years, we have not found a more high-quality and beautiful hotel than our Sera. I won't go into details as everything is described in the reviews above, and it is true! The hotel is magnificent! Many thanks to the entire hotel staff, especially to Zehre for organizing a quality vacation! Also, to the animation team led by Mario😘! We will be back in October!!!

Hello everyone! We stayed at the hotel from May 22nd to May 28th, 222, and had an amazing vacation! It's definitely a five-star experience! The service is top-notch, and the food variety is excellent. They offer a wide range of seafood, such as squid, shrimp, tuna, salmon, mussels, as well as meats like beef, lamb, and chicken. There are countless salad options, as well as appetizers, desserts, and side dishes. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The bartender Onur deserves special praise. If the management is reading this review, we suggest rewarding him for his outstanding service. He is truly a professional! The Mongolian restaurant from the Á la carte menu impressed us (Yasmina, a very kind and friendly girl, takes reservations). The food was delicious, especially the gözleme and the ice cream. The sea is warm, the staff is smiling, and there is live music from Monday to Thursday, with a disco on Fridays to Sundays. They also have a piano in the lobby every day. The hotel's unique feature is a large number of turtles! Overall, we couldn't find any negatives (except for gaining 3 kilograms, but that's our own fault 😆). You are perfect! There's nothing to complain about. Thank you so much, "Club hotel Sera," for the warm welcome. You have a special place in our hearts forever! We will definitely come back. It's hard to leave here and we can't wait to return. Keep up the good work! Wishing you prosperity and even more grateful and generous tourists! ❤️

Highly recommend. I don't understand the negative reviews. Very friendly staff and a great vacation during the May holidays. Pros all around in the hotel. Only one downside...which I found. Actually, two. BUT these are minor details. I don't understand how they can hold a children's mini disco in a large adapted space with a stage, but not provide chairs for parents during the event? Half an hour of standing for moms, dads, and relatives - an oversight! New team of animators, please consider this issue. The second downside is the cleanliness on the 5th floor of the main Residence building. Side view of the sea. Every day I left a broken toilet brush in the sink, and every evening it would come back fixed with scraps of rags and paper. In the morning, it would be displaced again. I gave up, asked for a replacement at the reception (apparently "brush" sounds like "toothbrush" in English) - they brought a full set of toothbrushes. I gave up again. Everything else brought me great joy, starting from the food, bars, entertainment, beach, mini club, and the luxurious interiors that glimmered in gold. The aqua bike event in the basic pool and the evening concerts and shows were impressive, and of course, the live piano music was wonderful. Well done. The evening dinners in a separate restaurant were magnificent. Adjacent to the hotel, there is a huge promenade along the sea with a park area. Right there is a sand sculpture festival. There are promoters for shopping: textiles, leather, etc. Boiled corn and mussels are always available on the beach. There are also many dogs, which sometimes annoyed me. There are many specifically beach areas. Delicious ice cream, pide, and gözleme. The pastry chef is a true wizard! All the amenities of the city, such as shops, buses, ATMs, are available. Use Mir cards, it will bring you happiness. A 30-minute drive from the hotel is the Duden Waterfall. I recommend it for those who haven't been. We didn't go to the sauna or spend money on massages. There are many tricks in this hotel business. A 4-4 hour flight from Zhukovsky with FunSun. The flights were great. With snacks. Departure was at 1 AM, and return at 11 PM. No day lost! After checking out, we all used the facilities, including the towels. The indoor pool had no water in May. I recommend the hotel as a year-round destination for all ages! I am considering it for New Year's.

We are staying at this hotel for the second time. We arrived at the hotel at 8 am. We had breakfast and by 9 am we were already checked in! Our room is in the CLUB building, which is closer to the sea. The food is superb! There are 2 à la carte restaurants - Mongolian and sushi. You can make reservations at the corner to the right as soon as you enter the hotel. There is also an Italian restaurant (Olimpus) where reservations are not required, you can go there every evening. If you want seafood, you can only find it in the Mongolian restaurant: shrimp, mussels, squid. You take a deep bowl and fill it with whatever you want, sit at the table, and within 5-10 minutes everything is prepared and brought to you. Fish is served for lunch and dinner every day. They constantly offer fruits like watermelons, green plums, peaches, and pears. It's unclear why they don't offer strawberries, they are cheap in Turkey - 2 lira at the market, 27 lira at Migros, which is less than 1 ruble per kilogram in our currency. The hotel premises are big, be sure to explore everything, there are even small water slides in the pool. The bars open at 8 am, but the champagne bar is open from 6 pm to 10 pm. Towels are provided from 8 am, but if you want to occupy a place near the pool where the animation takes place and there is a nearby dining restaurant and bar, you need to reserve your spot around 7 am. If you go out after 8 am, there probably won't be any available sunbeds. As usual, it is annoying that there are people who occupy sunbeds and they may not be there for half a day. There is a sauna, hammam, and jacuzzi near the elevators (main building), reservations are not necessary, you can go there for free every day (only massages are charged). They should also provide you with bathrobes, slippers, and a beach bag (Sera). Most likely, they won't give them to you! Then you need to go and ask Guest Relations and they will bring everything to your room. The Wi-Fi is good, but it only works in the lobbies of the two buildings. The hotel has canceled the complimentary service for guests who have stayed there before. The animation team is fantastic, they organize beach volley, yoga, darts, and there is a different animation program at the pool every day (aqua gym, aqua bike, underwater trampolines, etc.). After a week, the animation program is repeated. Every evening there is a show program: live music, DJ set, or Vintage party (which is a super fun party!). There is a bus stop near the hotel, in order to take the bus, you need to buy a bus card near the hotel, it costs 4 lira, and it already has 4 rides on it, then you can reload it 5 times for 3 lira for 4 rides each. It's a must to visit Tera City for shopping, it's only 5 km from the hotel. On Saturdays, there is a big bazaar, just 3 stops after Tera City (landmark - Laura Shopping Center). I managed to pay with the MIR card at the pharmacy near the hotel and in the stores (LC WAIKIKI, MAVI, FULLA). You can only withdraw liras from the MIR card at Ziraat Bank ATMs, there is no ATM near the hotel. There is one on the top floor of Tera City. You won't be able to withdraw dollars or euros, only liras! The exchange rate is approximately 4 rubles to 1 lira. Sberbank charges a commission of 1 ruble for 1 transaction. So it's better to withdraw a larger amount at once. You won't be able to pay with a card at BIM and MIGROS stores, only with liras, or you can pay with euros or dollars and receive change in liras.

Great hotel with a large territory and high-quality service and alcohol!

We stayed at the Sera Hotel from 7.5.22 to 2.5.22, and we really liked it. We arrived in the morning and were given the keys to room 252 in the Club building on the 5th floor. We had a view of the sea and the restaurant where we had dinner in the evening. The hotel is very beautiful and well-maintained, with everything being cleaned and tidied up all the time. The room cleaning service was mediocre, but it's a minor issue. There were turtles crawling around the grounds, and there were also dogs and cats, but I personally liked it. The animals were all friendly and tame, as is the case everywhere in Turkey (I really like the Turks' attitude towards animals). The food was ordinary, nothing extravagant, but everything was very tasty and decent. There were not many fruits in my opinion (apples, oranges, Turkish plums, medlars, and watermelon in the evening, as well as grapefruit in the morning). The entertainment program was also very good, with non-intrusive activities during the day and a schedule of adult and children's activities on the hotel's Instagram page. They also broadcasted them on the television screens in common areas. There was a party every evening, either organized by the hotel or with invited artists. We really liked the hotel staff, all the bartenders were friendly and kind, always ready to help in any way they could. Everyone had a positive attitude and made our vacation enjoyable. However, I have to mention that we gave tips and brought chocolates and candies from home to treat the staff (it wasn't difficult for us, and they appreciated the gesture). Regarding alcohol: I understood that the lobby mainly had Turkish alcohol, which was of decent quality. The beer was not great, but there seemed to be French brandy and freshly brewed coffee. In the GIP cafe, they made more varied cocktails, and I saw Malibu liqueur, non-Turkish brandy and whiskey. The beer there was also normal, and they made various milkshakes, smoothies, (although not from real fruits, but from syrups; I didn't try them, so I can't say anything). If you plan to stay at this hotel or in the area, keep in mind that there is a waterfall nearby, and the water near the shore is cooler than in the deeper parts. The attitude towards Russians is good, and during our 2-week stay, I didn't notice any negativity from either the staff or the guests, although about 5% of the guests were foreigners. We visited the Old Town, museum, shopping center, and an ancient city, and everyone was friendly and polite. For those flying with Turkish Airlines, keep in mind that the baggage allowance is 3kg per person, despite it being stated as 2kg on the tickets. We were informed about this by a Turkish lady at the airport who was arranging our baggage. Also, we really liked that it only took about 2 minutes to drive from the airport, and since not many people from our city go to this hotel, we had an individual transfer both ways. Overall, the hotel is beautiful, with an Ottoman palace style of "luxury and richness", which I personally liked. My husband and I were very satisfied with our vacation, Turkey always delivers!

We rested from May 9th to May 16th. Attention! #Information note below for foreign citizens residing in Russia # The weather was great, 26-29°C, the sea was 18-20°C. Not for everyone, but we are "polar bears" :), the water suited us. This is our second time staying at the hotel. We arrived early in the morning. As usual, we were checked in at 14:00. We brought a letter of recommendation from TopHotels with us, I don't know how much it helped, but we were given a good room in the park block on the 5th floor. The hotel: you can feel the touch of a good owner. The territory is always clean, tidy, and, as we noticed, constantly being renewed, changed, and supplemented with nice little things. The corridors in the hotel always smell clean. The cleaning staff is friendly and polite. The mini-bar (Fanta, cola, mineral water) and bathroom amenities are replenished, towels are changed every day. Food: very diverse. Lamb kebab, turkey, chicken, fish, grilled beef (this year it was our hit of the season, incredibly delicious!), fried mussels, breaded squid. Porridge, pureed soups, borscht. Delicious salmon salad! Lots of fresh vegetables and herbs. Fruits: apples, medlar, watermelon, pears, cherries, bananas. Desserts: tiramisu, eclairs, chocolate and fruit cakes, mini pastries with strawberries, chocolate mousse, chocolate cups with banana and strawberries. There is an omelette station (delicious!). Of course, everyone has different tastes... and when I read some negative comments, I think: my dear gentlemen, what do you eat at home if you find everything tasteless even with such a huge assortment))). I have been working in the restaurant business for many years and I know how difficult and responsible the work of a chef, pastry chef, and baker is. And believe me, organizing this process is incredibly difficult, especially in such quantity and quality, so I give the restaurant of this hotel and the staff a five-star rating. Entertainment: water aerobics, darts, bicycle rides to the waterfall were canceled, yoga, performances by singers and DJs, discos from 21:30 to 23:00. By the way, I would like to make a suggestion to the hotel management about the musical repertoire. I would like to hear more TURKISH music (after all, we are in Turkey) and modern beautiful music, and songs by MODERN performers. As it turns out, the singers change at the hotel, but they all sing the same songs :( Every day it's Freddie Mercury, "SPb.ru" and 90s-style music. It is necessary to work on the repertoire of invited singers! Beach: during our stay, a new pier was arranged, there are enough sunbeds and mattresses for everyone by the sea. Those who want to sunbathe by the pool near the snack bar should get up early and reserve their spots ;). The beach entrance is pebbles and shells - a foot massage :), the water is clean. I would like the beach to be better cleaned from cigarette butts, cups, and trash in the morning. Hotel staff: friendly, smiling, we liked them :). Overall, Sera met our expectations this year as well. We liked everything. We were charged with a good mood for a long time! Thank you for a wonderful stay at a luxurious hotel! Now, information about the departure for foreign citizens residing in Russia. Before leaving Turkey for Russia, make sure to take an express COVID-19 test (within 48 hours). We had a very unpleasant situation - we were not allowed on the plane due to the absence of this test. We had to take the test at the airport (expensive) and buy new tickets for another flight! It's a long story. Friends, if you end up in a tricky situation and nobody understands Russian at the airport, there is a wonderful person, a representative from Coral Travel, his name is Sergio. The Coral Travel office is located in both the second and first terminals of the airport, right at the entrance.

We have stayed at the hotel for the third time and I can say that the level has dropped significantly! We stayed in 2019 and 2021, recommended it to friends and acquaintances. The attitude of the hotel towards the guests has become indifferent and negligent, regardless of nationality. In March, there was active renovation going on and we were assigned a room on the third floor, where the noise from jackhammers was unbearable. We approached the reception and asked "how long will this last?", they said "don't worry, it won't last long". We went out for the whole day and when we returned after dinner, the noise from the jackhammers continued. We endured until 11 pm and then went to the reception again. They stopped the noise after 3 minutes. The same thing happened the next day, the noise continued until midnight and we found out that the renovation was going to last for a long time. Why would they assign guests, who paid a significant amount of money, to a floor where walls were being demolished? Moreover, the hotel was half-empty. They relocated us to the top floor, where new adventures awaited us: a group of numerologists from Kazakhstan arrived, their guru started their rituals with screaming, shouting, and drunk parties from 9 pm until 1 am, right under the cameras. Once again, we went to the reception with questions like "why can't they organize this mystery in the lobby? Why isn't the staff maintaining order?" They dispersed the drunken crowd only after mentioning calling the police. There were also elderly Germans at the hotel, with CONFIRMED COVID diagnosis, who freely moved around the hotel. I personally asked them to call an ambulance because a woman fell in the corridor. I went out to ask for help and she was in such a state that she couldn't make it to the elevator, and before that, she had been walking and coughing around the hotel for a week. The hotel did not disinfect the hotel rooms, KNOWING THAT GUESTS WITH COVID WERE STAYING, I'm not speaking baselessly, the receptionist informed me of the diagnosis. There were no individual hygiene kits in the rooms, not even shower caps, only soap. The toilet flushing button constantly malfunctioned, on the first day we had to wait for the technician for an hour in the evening, then we learned to dismantle and repair it ourselves. The in-room bar was reduced, they only provided water, and it was limited to one person. There was no animation at all, the hammam administrators who ensured cleanliness and offered additional services were fired, now only Thai masseuses are present, which also does not contribute to the service. The variety of food has been greatly reduced, in the first few days, the main restaurant was closed for renovation and there was nothing to eat at all. After the reopening of the main restaurant, it was noticeable that there were only 3 waiters for a huge hall and they simply couldn't keep up, tables were filled with dirty dishes, and cutlery was constantly missing. The a-la-carte restaurant is a disgrace, there is no choice of dishes, it's a waste of time. The conclusion is that we paid much more off-season than when we went in September 2021, and we received much less. It's a world of difference compared to previous years. I'm looking at the prices for summer now and I realize that I'm not willing to spend 3,000 rubles for this hotel in the summer.

The hotel staff, especially the receptionists, were very friendly and always helpful. Special thanks to the staff in the restaurant and bar, they were very cheerful and fun. The hotel grounds were vast and filled with greenery. However, I was completely disappointed with the cleanliness of the room. Everything was dirty, worn out, and the walls were covered in graffiti. It was definitely not a 5-star experience. The housekeepers were rude, and there was a conflict with them on the day of check-in. I have a dust allergy, and they assigned us to a dusty room (attached is a photo of the room on the day of check-in). It felt like the room hadn't been cleaned at all before our arrival. The hotel corridor was never cleaned during our 12-day stay. Because of these issues, we will not be returning here.

The hotel was checked in and settled in immediately at 1 o'clock. It was located in the park area. The room was small with a small balcony and a view of the roof and neighboring hotels. We were on vacation with our one-year-old child. A crib was brought immediately, and bathrobes were provided upon request at the reception. Cleaning and replenishing the minibar were done daily. The territory and infrastructure were excellent, with many locations for relaxation in both shade and sun. Everything was clean and well-maintained. There was a children's playground under the canopy. Throughout the territory, there were bars and cafes open at different times. Excellent cocktails were served at the Cip Bar, Champagne Bar, and in the lobby. The bartenders were excellent with professional skills and beautiful presentation. Live music played in the coffee shop, as well as in the lobby on the piano. The food was decent, with a selection of meat, fish, and seafood. There were also dishes available for little children, such as boiled chicken, vegetables, rice, pasta, and puree. During our stay, there were no queues, and there were enough tables available. Fruits were abundant in season. The sweets were traditionally delicious, appetizing, and national. The staff promptly cleaned the dishes and cleared the tables. The a la carte restaurants were average, and the sushi did not represent Turkish cuisine. The Olympus restaurant, however, was worth visiting multiple times for its delicious seafood and salmon. The ice cream and pizzas were tasty, as were the gezi-style dishes. The beach area was relatively small, sandy, and there were places to swim. Access to the public beach area was allowed and seemed much warmer there. On the pier, there were also entrances to the sea and places to relax. However, it is better to occupy sun loungers early in the morning. The sea entrance was shallow with small pebbles and sand. The huge downside to the hotel was the presence of large stray dogs on the beach that would defecate where children play and on the belongings of the vacationers. They would fight with each other and bark at people, which was very annoying, especially for children. In the evening, these same dogs would roam around the territory, defecating on the beautiful lawns and urinating in the flower pots. The cats were less bothersome. The beach access was not suitable for strollers as the walkways were in dire need of replacement. Only the trash bins were cleaned on the beach, and there were plenty of droppings on the ground, unlike other hotels where they would clean the sand as well. Throughout the day, there were animators who offered activities for everyone. The evening entertainment programs for adults were interesting. However, the children's mini disco was very monotonous, with girl animators having sad faces and lacking energy, playfulness, and fun. We have experienced better ones with older children. We did not visit the mini club, but the room was cozy. Another huge downside that does not pertain to the hotel itself is the low-flying planes that could be heard even with closed windows and doors. It was very disturbing at night, and we couldn't get used to it during our 12-day stay. I also want to mention that with the ultra concept, they provided a packed lunch for early departures. Although we had approached them the day before and informed them of our early flight, the girl promised sandwiches but we were not given anything when we handed in our cards. Even lower-ranked hotels would provide them. In general, the hotel was excellent, and most importantly, the warm sea and hot sun created a great atmosphere. That's why we go there. My advice to the hotel management is to create a separate, closed area for dogs where dog lovers can feed them, pet them, cuddle with them, and take pictures with them. There are people who like that as well.

The food was perfect. The animation for children was great (the child was satisfied). The adults didn't get bored either. The reception staff was always unhappy men who didn't notice your presence. The girl Maria, who was Russian-speaking, was polite and pleasant. A huge thanks to her. The hotel was beautiful and the cleaning was good. There were different options for entering the sea: iron stairs from the pier or a regular walk-in. The beach had small pebbles. There were many fish swimming, and some complained about being bitten. Personally, I wasn't bitten. Wi-Fi was only available in the lobby and it was very weak. Overall, I would rate it 5/5. Lastly, a staff member at the baggage room, named Weisman, was rude and irritating.

The tour operator offered completely different hotels, but after looking at the top hotels in Antalya, we chose the Club Hotel Sera. We read reviews, watched videos, and decided to stay there, and we didn't regret it. We went on vacation with my wife for 12 days, without children. The first impression when you enter the main building is like entering a sultan's palace. Everything is "covered in gold" (painted), which gives the hotel a luxurious look. Now, let's go in order: Pluses + 1. The location is excellent, only 15 minutes drive from the airport. 2. It is not far from the center of Antalya; you can easily reach different beautiful places by bus, visit shopping centers (the nearest one is a 15-20 minutes bus ride). 3. The beauty inside the hotel is breathtaking. When you enter the main building, it looks expensive. The staff quickly checked us in and escorted us to our room. 4. The hotel grounds are spacious and well-maintained, with several pools, 3 water slides, and bars. I would like to mention the coffee bar; they prepare excellent tea and coffee there! 5. The food! It is simply amazing. Unlike many other hotels, the food here is varied. There is plenty of meat, grilled fish, vegetables, and fruits. For those with a sweet tooth, this place is a paradise. 6. The staff in the restaurants clears the tables quite quickly. 7. The housekeeping service in the rooms is standard, they cleaned, changed towels, and replenished supplies daily. 8. The rooms are clean, the furniture is well-maintained, and the bed is comfortable. We were lucky to have a spacious room with two big armchairs and a table. 9. We only swam in the pool 2-3 times; it was clean, but we preferred the sea. The sea was invigorating in the first few days, and after a couple of days, it warmed up. Like many other beaches on the Antalya coast, the sand is fine and pebbly, but it was not uncomfortable. 10. Jewelry. Once upon a time, it used to be a game zone, but after it closed, the building was turned into a jewelry store. I highly recommend visiting it to see all the beauty and you can even buy jewelry there at a lower price (don't forget to haggle). 11. The Mongolian a la carte restaurant was excellent; everything was delicious. Summing up, we really liked the hotel, the food was great (alcohol was average), and the wine was better in the a la carte restaurant. 12. The hotel staff was very friendly; they assisted us at the reception, and the bartenders in the bars were quick and efficient. Now, let's talk about the downsides: 1. The hotel has three buildings, and we were assigned a room in the park building. Apparently, only Russians were assigned there. We got a room on the ground floor in a passing area, so everyone passing by could be heard. At night, dogs barked in groups, which made it difficult to sleep. 2. Since we didn't have children with us, we didn't pay much attention to the entertainment, but there were no water slides for children, and we didn't notice any dedicated areas for kids (at least, not after exploring the entire resort). 3. The beach is small, but there were enough sunbeds for everyone. 4. The entertainment for adults was repetitive, and everything ended by 11 pm, it was time to sleep. We saw in videos that there was a bar in the main building where the disco should take place, but it was closed. That's it! I might have missed something, but there are definitely fewer negatives than positives. I would recommend this hotel, and if there is an opportunity to visit again, definitely yes! Thank you for reading!

We will not go to this hotel anymore, but we do not regret the trip. We drove from the airport for about 15 minutes, considering that we were the first to be dropped off. One room was ready at 9 am, while we had to wait until 2 pm for the second one. We booked the cheapest category of rooms and were placed in building 7. It is quite far to walk from there, especially to the beach through the entire territory. If you open the balcony, there is a street view, but it won't be easy to sleep peacefully. We had 2 rooms, both of them were VERY tired, especially one. It really needs renovation, the furniture is so dirty that you don't want to touch anything. There is not enough space on the balcony to dry clothes, so we had to hang them on chairs. There were shampoo, shower gel, soap, conditioner, slippers, and non-alcoholic drinks in the minibar (replenished daily), and bathrobes were brought upon request. It was disappointing that there was no iron and ironing room in the hotel, only paid laundry services. The main beach is simply marvelous. There are plenty of sunbeds, both in the sun and under canopies, with umbrellas. The pebbles are very small, clean, and there is a smooth entry into the water without rocks. There are showers, changing rooms, and a toilet nearby. The only downside is that there are stinging fish in the shallow water. There is also a pier and a small beach for children with shallow water. In general, there are plenty of sunbeds throughout the entire territory, so I think there should be enough space for everyone even during the peak season. There are 3 large pools and one children's pool. The hotel territory is not very large, but it accommodates a lot of locations and places to walk. It is very green and beautiful. There are many bars and cafes. There are grocery stores, clothing stores, fur shops, and jewelry stores. Turtles roam around the territory and are not afraid of people, they even come up to get fed. There are plenty of relaxing spots where you can be alone with your company. The interiors are styled like an Ottoman palace, but again, the furniture and overall decor are dirty. Maybe it was all magnificent about 2 years ago, but time has passed. The majority of guests are European couples who have been together for over 4 years. There is barely any young people, just a few. There are families with children, but not too many, as I think the hotel is not oriented towards children. However, there is a children's playground and mini disco. The staff everywhere is very friendly and pleasant. Especially the bartenders, they are always positive. The room cleaning was done every day, but it was mediocre - they made the bed and took out the trash. Almost everyone understands Russian, to some extent at least. The hotel is located in a not particularly touristy area. There is nowhere to go for a walk, to be honest. There is car rental nearby, excursions, a couple of stores aimed at tourists, Migros supermarket, pharmacy, ATMs, and a few cafes. By the way, Migros has very attractive prices for everything at the moment. There is a bus stop in front of the hotel. The fare is paid with travel cards, the card costs 25 lira, and the fare is 8 lira. You can buy and refill the card at the store near the excursion desk or directly at the hotel in the grocery store. We took the bus to Terasiti Mall. There is also a public beach and a promenade near the hotel, but there is nothing much to do there. It is really unsafe to approach in the evening. The food in the hotel is at an excellent level. Yes, it is not Max Royal or Rixos, but it is a solid five. The main restaurant offers a wide selection of meat, fish, chicken, and fruits. Everything else is similar to other hotels, but everything is really tasty. We had calamari only once during the week. I was surprised that there was no Turkish day. I thought it was everywhere, but apparently not. There is breakfast and lunch at the snack bar on the beach. Ice cream, pancakes. Coffee shops with coffee machines. Mexican, Mongolian, and sushi à la carte restaurants. One visit per week is free. We chose the Mongolian restaurant. There, you choose the ingredients yourself, and they cook them on a fire. The waiter serves you. There is also the Olympus restaurant, which opens at 4 pm. You can visit it as many times as you want. It has a small menu and mediocre service by the waiters. You only go there purely to eat seafood or lamb. In general, we were satisfied with the food. There are many bars on the territory with different menus. The cocktails are normal, in principle, weakly alcoholic, like everywhere else, but we liked the wide selection for every taste and the beautiful presentation. There is a spa with a sauna, hammam, jacuzzi, and a (non-working) pool. The visit is free. The sauna is great, with a sufficiently high temperature. The rest is just incredibly scary. While sitting in the jacuzzi, you pray that the plaster won't fall from the ceiling onto your head and that you won't catch something dreadful. The internet is free, but it is not available everywhere. And it doesn't work very well in general. It is enough for messengers and Instagram, but other websites barely load and only in the lobby. It is not possible to work properly. We were satisfied with the vacation. It is suitable for a calm trip with a family (without children). However, the outdated decor is somewhat depressing, even though we do not consider ourselves to be super picky.

We were driving from the airport for no more than 2 minutes. There was a reservation in the Park building. We arrived around 1-3 am and were accommodated an hour later. The hotel gave us a complimentary fruit and baklava. At first glance, the room seemed normal, but upon closer inspection, we noticed old plumbing, worn-out doors and cabinet handles, and dust between the furniture. There was a bag and a tampon (sealed) lying between the wall and the cabinet. The cleanliness was not great, but the towels were changed regularly. They hardly ever provided shower gel. There were plenty of shampoo and conditioner bottles, but no gel. If you have long hair, bring your own toiletries because these only work for bald or closely cropped hair. The minibar was irregularly restocked, sometimes they didn't even put water. The issue was resolved after a complaint. They also promptly provided a dryer upon request. The internet was awful. This was due to the fact that at some point they made it free throughout the entire property. There were many people at the hotel, so it took a long time to listen to voice messages or send photos. Sometimes it was impossible. The food was good, but there were no fancy dishes or variety. We would have liked more fish and seafood. The breakfast menu didn't change once throughout the week. The watermelons were very tasty. They prepared delicious coffee in all cafes, and we enjoyed it every day. The champagne and cocktails made with it were excellent. The beach was dirty and had local dogs living on it. I saw one of them lift its leg and do its business on the dress of one of the vacationers.. This is simply unacceptable for a hotel of this level. Measures need to be taken. There were very few spots on the beach, and by 8:30am all the good ones were taken. This was inconvenient. Fish swim in the sea and bite your legs. Other vacationers also noticed this. You can't just splash around in the sea, you can only swim actively. The pools were good. Special thanks for the yoga, it was wonderful. The piano concerts in the lobby were marvelous. We went for a paid massage and enjoyed it very much. In conclusion, as trendy bloggers say, it's a "budget five-star". The interior is luxurious, expensive-looking, and it's unusual to be in such a place. There is a lot of greenery on the property, and there are also cute turtles, which was a plus. However, many small things spoil the overall picture. We expected something different for the price of 16k. We probably wouldn't come again, unless it's for the yoga.

We spent our family vacation from August 15th to August 25th. We arrived in the morning, so we were at the hotel around 1 am. We received our room right away. We had a reservation for the Elegance building. Our room was on the first floor with a terrace - it was cool. It was a huge room with a massive terrace. We could see the sea from there. Everything in the room was very beautiful and clean. They constantly made swans and various towel compositions. The terrace had a major downside - cigarette butts from careless guests would occasionally litter the floor. We approached the guest relations department and complained. It seemed to improve a bit, but trash still appeared occasionally, and the cleaner had to clean it up. The grounds were very beautiful. There were numerous spots for taking photos. However, the sandy beach was just a garbage dump. Nobody cleaned it. Trash, empty bottles, diapers, and dog feces would lie there for weeks. The wooden walkways were very hazardous - they were laid randomly (everything would wobble, nothing was properly secured), there were exposed wires in some areas, and the old logs were almost worn out with holes. So, you had to be very careful while walking there. Additionally, where the beach loungers were placed on the stone slabs, it was very dirty. The floor seemed to be cleaned maybe once a week after the fire show, and that was it. There were not enough beach umbrellas. The battle for umbrellas happened daily. The beach staff didn't pay attention or prepare the beach for the arrival of guests. The food was diverse, but I have never seen the lunch identical to dinner - only with a different location. Usually, Turkish hotels make a show out of dinner - preparing something interesting. Here, all the tasty food was limited to the olivier salad, Greek salad, impossible to eat tacos, and stinky salt-baked tuna. We had king prawns once - they were gone in 15 minutes. So, if you didn't get there in time, you didn't see them at all. There were no crabs whatsoever. The borscht is a separate topic - Turks just don't know how to cook it, why bother??? They have wonderful traditional dishes, let their chef make their soups, and we will gladly try them. We were also surprised that a hotel of this level didn't have any baklava with nuts at all. How is that possible? There were certainly plenty of desserts, but there was a lack of baklava. The alcohol was only local. There was one type of imported whiskey, I can't remember which. My husband tried it and didn't drink it - it was disgusting. The beer was only on tap, and the wine and champagne were only dry. There were also a Mongolian and sushi à la carte restaurants. We liked the Mongolian restaurant the first time, so we decided to go there again. The second time, everything was burnt beyond recognition. The sushi restaurant was not bad. We also went twice - overall, we liked everything. The sushi was unique for Turks, but it was edible. In general, we liked the hotel, but the beach and food were not quite up to par.

We stayed at this hotel with a child from August 22nd to August 29th. We arrived at the hotel at 8 AM and were checked in at 1 PM. We were able to enjoy all the amenities from 8 AM onwards. I would like the hotel management to instruct reception staff to provide Wi-Fi to guests immediately upon arrival, as they already know the room number they will be assigned to. Currently, Wi-Fi can only be accessed when the room number is known. I couldn't inform my family that I had arrived and everything was fine until 12 PM. I asked for the Wi-Fi password three times and was told that it would only be given after checking in. This is incorrect. I purposely did not use roaming as I planned to use the paid Wi-Fi service provided by the hotel (costing $4 per day - I paid $22 for 9 days, which I think is not expensive). The hotel is truly beautiful, with a lot of greenery and relaxation areas. The dining services are well-planned, as you can eat at any time without being limited by specific hours. The hotel has three a la carte restaurants that guests can visit. We only visited one of them. We didn't have enough time to try everything and explore all the options. I think staying in this kind of hotel requires a minimum of two weeks. The hotel grounds are home to animals such as turtles (careful, they can bite and make hissing noises when you approach their faces) and dogs that usually take saltwater baths in the sea in the morning. There are also cats roaming around the hotel grounds, but that didn't bother me. However, I advise against touching Turkish dogs and cats, as you can catch scabies. There are a couple of shops on the hotel grounds selling various water accessories, bracelets, magnets, and clothes. But my advice is not to rush into buying anything there. Take a couple of minutes and leave the hotel grounds, cross the road, and go to the left in the direction of Migros. Pass by the ATM, where you can withdraw Turkish Lira (and it's much cheaper to use Lira than $/€), and after a couple of minutes, you'll find a little shop where an old man sells a lot of things at much cheaper prices. For example, we bought swimming goggles for our child for $2 there, while the same goggles cost $7 at the hotel. Bracelets and magnets can also be purchased at this shop for the equivalent of 5-6 rubles, while at the hotel, they cost 3-4 rubles. We had a problem on the second day of our vacation when my child developed a severe sun allergy (or maybe an allergy to the plants as the hotel is surrounded by greenery). It manifested as intense itching all over the body. I tried to deal with it myself by giving my child Suprastin at night and in the morning, but the itching didn't stop. It was so bad that my child couldn't swim, walk, or even sit comfortably and was crying. I decided to seek help from a doctor at the hotel as I realized I couldn't handle it on my own. In the doctor's office, there was a nurse who didn't understand Russian at all. Even the (paid) Wi-Fi didn't work in her office, so I couldn't use a translator. Unfortunately, there was no translator available at the hotel on that Sunday, so it was difficult to communicate and explain what had happened and the kind of help we needed. But we managed to understand each other somehow. I told her that we needed a doctor covered by the insurance I purchased from the travel agency SunMar. The nurse took our documents, called the insurance company herself, and activated the insurance. Then she called the doctor, and we waited for about 3 minutes. A middle-aged woman arrived, examined the child, and a translator came to assist us while the doctor was examining us. The doctor prescribed two injections, which were available at the hotel and cost $1 each. So we paid $ In the hotel, live music is mainly presented. There is a lot of it. Those who love it will be delighted. Throughout the day, you can observe performances on different instruments. What I remember: - Day 1: Live music by a Turkish singer (with fireworks), - Day 2: Magic tricks, - Day 3: Another singer, - Day 4: Concert with instrumental music, - Day 5: Vintage disco, - Day 6: I don't remember (possibly a day off, possibly live music), - Day 7: Another disco with a DJ, in a different style. The disco decorations are fantastically beautiful. They set up tables and chairs, creating a dance floor in front of the seated guests, and those who wish can come out and dance. Each disco has themed female dancers (go-go dancers). There are mini fireworks, club smoke, and an energetic DJ. In short, it is very beautiful, especially if you are in a cheerful mood and love dancing. We also attended a foam party, which took place in a saltwater pool at 3 p.m. The child was very excited about this event. It was also beautifully decorated. I can't comment on alcoholic beverages because I don't drink, BUT! I tried various non-alcoholic children's cocktails. They are available in different variations and at different times. For example, at Cip Cafe & Bar (by the red pool, it operates from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), they have several types of milkshakes and smoothies. You can get them in beautifully designed glass or plastic cups to take away, also beautifully decorated with various toppings. We got them to go three times a day. You can also enjoy various non-alcoholic cocktails at the bar near the saltwater pool. They are made with syrups and carbonated water. In the evening, you can try all these cocktails at each lobby bar. Also, in the Lub building, you can have various cakes in the evening. The hotel was very impressive, everything was clean and beautiful. TURKISH SWEETS ARE A SPECIAL MASTERPIECE... The only thing I didn't like very much was that in the morning, you could only have coffee in the main restaurant during breakfast in the main building, which opens at 7 a.m. It was inconvenient for me as we stayed in the Club building and I woke up at 6:30 a.m. I really need coffee right after getting out of bed. I went to the pool (which is next to the sea) where there is a bar, but it opens at 8:30 a.m. and the coffee machines are closed until then. We didn't always go to the main building for breakfast, as it is not decent to go there in a sarong. It seemed inconvenient to me. But! The tastiest breakfast stalls were there. The food was freshly made. I also really liked the beach. It consists of very fine pebbles, and thanks to them, the entrance to the sea is very clean. You can go in up to your neck and see your feet while swimming. There are many small fish that bite, but not fatally. Furthermore, those who swim farther can see turtles taking salt baths. I advise the hotel management to open the coffee machines at 7 a.m. in all bars. It's not difficult if someone comes at 7 a.m., opens the coffee machines, and then goes about their business. A big thank you to the hotelier named Sera from the Club building for the gift. It was pleasant and a first-time experience. Thank you, Sera, for your hospitality. I hope we will meet again. I really love hospitable Turkey. As always, everything is of the highest quality.

Hello, dear travelers! My latest trip has taken place. This time, the Club Hotel Sera 5* in Antalya was chosen as the place of relaxation. And not just relaxation, but to celebrate my birthday on January 25th. I had noticed this hotel for a long time and immediately decided that I would celebrate my birthday there! The hotel interiors simply impressed me! I have never seen anything like it before. I dreamed of standing in a gorgeous dress on the hotel's grand staircase. Good reviews, location in the city, and the winter concept - everything was in favor of going to Sera in January. It was also expected that the vacation would be VIP, as there were supposed to be no people in January. But it turned out differently. My sister accompanied me on this trip. Well, what can I say... the hotel lived up to my expectations 99%. Why 99 - I will write about the negatives later. Everything was just like in the pictures! It was a complete realization of a dream! Beautiful, majestic Elegant building, which can be seen from all corners of Antalya. Gorgeous room on the 6th floor with a divine view of Antalya and the Duden Waterfall, luxurious corridors, mirrored elevators, a beautiful lobby with good furniture... Everything with carpets, mirrors, paintings, and some cute details. Wherever you look, there is always something that catches your eye. Not a centimeter of empty or ugly space... It is evident that the creators put their heart and soul into the design and ambiance of the hotel. The same goes for the surroundings... Everywhere there is beauty and various amenities, jugs, pots, amphorae, all kinds of places "for kisses," secret and not-so-secret corners... Everything is green and well-groomed. It's not to say that it is a large area, but there is space to wander. And the territory is clean, the lawn is well-groomed, the tiles shine, despite it being the off-season. And the cleanliness... It is really clean everywhere! In the lobby, tables were clean, perfectly clean and comfortable chairs and sofas, clean floors, clean and well-scented toilets, even the huge curtains - I did not see any dust on them... The glasses are so clean they squeak! And it's not because there are no people now, but because everything is cleaned and wiped promptly. Even when it was crowded - it was still clean. That's what service is. It is clear that the staff is doing their best. And that is very pleasant! And the ceilings... they are a masterpiece! The room is also clean. There is carpet everywhere, including in the corridor, and it is perfectly clean. Of course, we did not move the beds, but there was not a speck of dust in sight. It is like new. Bright and not worn out. The furniture is of good quality, although not new, but rather vintage. The mattresses are very comfortable, even the pillows are comfortable, I slept like a log every night! The blanket is thin, but relatively warm, which is very relevant in winter. Apart from the braying of the mules and barking dogs, nothing disturbed our sleep. Well, if you don't count the noise of the rubbish in the pipes, which descended from the upper floors into the trucks, but that only happened when we were already awake. There is renovation going on in the hotel, after all, it's winter... Many have already written about it, and I will write it too, maybe the hotel management will hear us: the room is sorely lacking a tea station... I drink warm water in the mornings, and it's especially necessary in winter. The bathroom is also clean, but there are not enough towels. There are two large and two small ones for two people, plus one floor towel. On the first day, we asked for two additional towels, but they were taken away and only two towels were left. There were also two comfortable white bathrobes and two pairs of slippers in the bathroom. Shampoos, conditioners, gels, a hairdryer. There is a free safe in the room, a plasma TV with Russian channels, and even one channel with a greeting to me. On the balcony, there are two chairs and a table. The restaurant only operates one during the winter, on the second floor, and it is also luxurious. The waiters bring the drinks very promptly. You serve yourself the food, there are no serving windows or barriers, which initially pleased me. The food selection is not very large, but everything is very tasty. Meat, fish, chicken, vegetables, side dishes, various appetizers, soup... Everything was abundant, and we even got full... And the lamb ribs on the grill are just amazing! The baked pumpkin in nut sauce and the baked quince were my favorites! Overall, I have great respect for the chefs! Another thing I liked very much is that no one rushes you! Sit, eat peacefully, no one snatches plates from your hands, even when breakfast time was ending - no one stared at you like a beast (as it was in a hotel in Alanya). The hotel staff is excellent. Polite, attentive, unobtrusive. The guys in the lobby are energetic, they all speak Russian, say thank you and please, bring drinks and delicious treats. In general, they take care of you, which is very pleasant. During the day, a musician plays the piano in the lobby, and in the evenings, a girl plays the violin. It's really great and beautiful. The alcoholic drinks are all locally produced. There are no imported ones. They are available for a fee, although imported alcohol is advertised in the ultra concept. There are also no juices, only Yippee. And in the lobby, there were two types of vitamin drinks in beautiful decanters. We also drank a lot of Turkish tea with lemon, mint, and cinnamon... we all tried to warm up. What There are sun loungers on the beach, where you can relax in the scarce January sun. I am following the hotel's Instagram account, as they post daily updates about the day's program. However, honestly speaking, I haven't seen much besides morning exercises and card games with the animator in the lobby. On my birthday, we went to the à la carte restaurant, which is only available in the main building on the second floor. The interior was luxurious, and the waiters served according to the menu. Drinks were included, but only wine, vodka, and a few others. The menu was very limited, with only one salad, two cold appetizers, two hot dishes, and a dessert. But everything was delicious. By the way, the hotel didn't provide any complimentary items for birthdays. I received an official response to my request stating this. However, to be fair, they allowed us to dine at the à la carte restaurant twice because our new acquaintances also had a birthday on January 26th, and we all went together. According to the guest relations, this was considered a compliment. The hotel also has karaoke, which we enjoyed on my birthday, as well as a billiard room, but it seemed to be closed. There were also a couple of parties with artists in the Club building, where you could drink and dance. By the way, it was the only place where it was warm. Now, let's talk about the downsides and what spoiled my vacation. It was very cold. We sat in the lobby wearing jackets, and I even wanted to wear a hat. It was cold everywhere in the hotel, with a freezing wind outside. It even snowed on my birthday! I was freezing all the time. I had hoped to enjoy walks by the sea, but the icy wind made it unbearable to go outside... They said that this kind of weather hadn't happened in Antalya for almost three years. That was my luck for you. The pool was also cold. I couldn't swim for long before getting cold. Although it was stated that the water temperature was 28 degrees Celsius. The water in the jacuzzi was also cool, slightly warmer than the pool, but it wasn't as warm as it should have been considering you sit in it. The only way to warm up was in one of the three saunas (hammam, Finnish, and steam), but as soon as you stepped out into the corridor or relaxation room, it was immediately cold. I was hoping for a vacation in an empty hotel, without people, queues, and bustle. The first two days were like that. But then a mass arrival of numerologists - followers of a Kazakh guru teaching consciousness - took place, and the hotel was filled with people! It felt like the whole of Kazakhstan had moved to our hotel, with a few people of European appearance... There were way too many of them! They were everywhere. Our restaurant was given to them for training, and we were relocated to the Club building for meals. It was really crowded there. There were queues in the restaurant, and no free tables. They occupied everything. The elevators were constantly occupied, and in the evenings, there was a queue at the spa. It was impossible to get through the lobby in the evening or approach the bar because their teacher gathered them around him, and there was a crowd standing and sitting around. They would greet each other with noise, hugging and kissing. It was really annoying. Then, apparently, tourists started complaining, and they organized entertainment with a bar on the second floor specifically for their group. It became somewhat easier. They studied and partied there. The hotel could have informed us about this grand event, and then I would have chosen a different hotel. And then, in Istanbul, there was a snowstorm, and the planes were not landing. All transit flights were redirected to Antalya, and all transit passengers were distributed among nearby hotels. Sera was one of those hotels. And then, chaos ensued... We watched in horror as the queues at the reception grew every half hour... And there were all kinds of people! All nationalities and religions! And no masks! We, unfortunate tourists, had nowhere to go... The staff did their best, constantly running around. They tried to manage the flow of people in the dining area, rearranged the serving station, and called all the staff to the bars... Luckily, we had dined at the à la carte restaurant for two days, but then we waited in the bar until the crowd dispersed to have dinner at the main restaurant... And then we realized that it would be better if the chefs served the food themselves because everyone used the same spoons, ladles, and spatulas... People were even accommodated in the Park building, which doesn't operate in the winter! I can only imagine how cold it must have been there... What can I say... Only I could be this lucky. As a result of this chaos, we brought home the most popular virus these days. Now I am watching stories from the hotel, where there are only four people sitting in the lobby, and I am filled with envy... I understand that it is not the hotel's fault. Most likely, they were simply faced with the fact that transit passengers would be brought to them. But it was us, the tourists, who suffered... I also didn't like the guest relations ladies, Tatiana and Camilla. Especially the older one, Tatiana. She was rude, impolite, and unwelcoming. I don't know why they were there if their duties were limited to booking at the à la carte restaurant. We stayed on the 6th floor in room 168, and there was a persistent sewage smell in our room and on the floor. The water drainage in the bathroom was very poor. I reported this issue at the reception, and the staff took note of it, but the problem was not resolved. Oh, and I also want to mention the Intourist guide, Shevket. He was a very pleasant young man. He told us everything, helped us with transportation cards, and didn't push anything on us! So, that's how my winter vacation turned out in Sera. Thank you if you made it to the end. I can't write short reviews. Would I recommend the hotel? Definitely yes! I don't know how it will be in the summer, but I think it will be great! And for a short, peaceful winter vacation, it's perfect, provided the weather is warm and there are no numerologists or other force majeure situations.

The reviewer did not provide a detailed description of their stay at the hotel. I would like to share my impressions of my stay at the hotel in more detail.

I have been wanting to visit this hotel for a long time, but somehow I never managed to. And finally, my husband and I went for 6 days to CLUB HOTEL SERA, anticipating a great vacation. I won't write too much. We arrived at the hotel at 8 am and checked in at 1 pm. There is plenty of food and it is diverse. The drinks are all of Turkish production, but not of the best quality. Restaurants: mostly breakfast and lunch, and dinner is served outside. There is a shortage of tables, the dishes are dirty, the waiters try their best, but there are not enough of them. The beach is a separate topic. You can always find empty sunbeds. BUT the beach is dirty! The paths are not swept, the sunbeds themselves are dirty. Dogs relieve themselves right on the belongings of the vacationers. There are no lifeguards. No security. The pools are the same as the beach. Everything is dirty. In the 6 days that we were there, 4 people slipped near the pool and broke their arms. The hotel falls far short of a 4-star rating, with a huge disadvantage. I do not recommend this hotel.

I stayed at the hotel with my family from August 15th to 27th. It wasn't the first time we stayed at this hotel. However, I was disappointed this year. The hotel's standard dropped to a 4- level. First, the positives. The staff is friendly and most of them speak Russian. The grounds are beautiful and the garden is well-maintained. The food is decent and diverse, with options for meat, fish, and chicken. There are plenty of fruits available, and the watermelons are especially delicious and sweet. The animation team is present but not intrusive. However, there isn't much to do for those with children. The rooms are beautiful, in a vintage luxurious style, and the air conditioning works flawlessly. Another advantage of the hotel is its proximity to the airport, only 1 minute away. Now for the negatives. The beach is horrible. It is dirty and there are lots of dogs that immediately defecate in the sand in front of you. Some of them even lift their leg on your clothes. The beach is hardly cleaned, and you need to occupy a spot as early as 6 am, otherwise, there won't be any available. We found hair in our soup and dessert at the restaurant. We complained, but the waiters were unable to clear the tables in a timely manner. We went to celebrate our daughter's birthday at the Mongolian à la carte restaurant and were shocked. All the food that you had to serve yourself to be cooked was covered in ants on the table we sat at. The waiters were inefficient and didn't know how to serve properly. The room cleaning was subpar. Something fell on the floor, and when we bent down to pick it up, we found papers and cigarette boxes under the bed. In general, it was like that. We waited a week for shower gel until we took it ourselves. We complained about all these issues to the guest relations. They took note of everything and promised to convey it to the management. The hotel's rating dropped from 5 stars to 4- due to these issues.

Something needs to be done about the hygiene at the beach (it's unsanitary). In the winter concept, there are no outdoor bars (according to the weather). The weather was good, people were swimming. Unfortunately, there were no drinks or snacks available. It's a good idea to walk around the city during the off-season. In the SPA, the pool water is cold (understandable, it's winter) and the walls are peeling, which is uncomfortable. The relaxation area is nicely decorated in a Thai style. The price for a massage is quite high. They say it used to be a casino and the chandeliers, sofas, tables, and restaurant decor are leftovers from the previous owners. In the dining room, there is no variety of dishes available. There is a lot of staff standing behind the counter... but it's difficult to get any wine or water; I had to get their attention. There are many elderly guests from Germany. They spend their whole days drinking cocktails in the lobby, playing cards, and flirting with the waiters. The waiters at the lobby bar are great. They are very attentive, polite, and prompt – it's pleasant. I was lucky with the room cleaning – everything was satisfactory for me as I was staying alone and there wasn't much to clean. The hotel has two types of rooms – one facing the road where the bus goes to the city, and the other facing the park, promenade, and sea. The sound of waves can only be heard during storms, it's a bit far, but I saw beautiful sunrises. The other side of the rooms faces the inner courtyard and provincial areas of the city, and also the sea – they say you can even see a small waterfall from the upper floors. We'll take their word for it.

We went on vacation with our family for the first time after the Covid restrictions were introduced. Unfortunately, we couldn't use our voucher to visit Turkey in 2021, so we were hesitant to book a tour for this year, 2022. We chose the hotel ourselves. We wanted to be closer to the airport since we didn't want a long flight. Prices were increasing rapidly. By chance, Club Hotel Sera came up during our search. It was actually a huge plus that it wasn't recommended by every travel agency. Club Hotel Sera had an international mix of guests, but let me go in order. The hotel is located approximately a 2-minute drive from the airport. The hotel was fully prepared to welcome guests, which pleasantly surprised us. It is a solid Turkish five-star hotel. We didn't experience any inconveniences with the number of staff, food, cleaning quality, or the overall condition of the hotel. Maybe the sofas in the lobby weren't all fresh, but overall, it didn't affect our impression of the hotel. The hotel staff works very well and quickly, bravo! ROOM: Check-in was at 12 o'clock. Elegance building. The Elegance room was simply enormous!!! The size of the room was delightful. It was so spacious that it comfortably fit a double bed, a coffee table, a nightstand, an additional bed, and everything was along one wall. At first, we had doubts about choosing the building based on the room design. In reality, it turned out to be not at all irritating. What pleasantly surprised us was the cleanliness of the room. There were no leaks, streaks, rust, mold, or even dust. It really lifted our spirits. The room had many mirrors, a large wardrobe, a chair, an ottoman, a table, a minibar, and as mentioned before, a coffee table. The minibar had water, juice, cola, Fanta, mineral water. In the bathroom, there were two bathrobes, two types of towels, a foot towel, mini shower kits, a shaving kit, and a good hairdryer with normal power. The bathroom had a bathtub. There was a difference in water pressure between the first floor and the seventh floor, where we stayed. But I must say that on the seventh floor, the water pressure was sufficient for a proper shower and washing hands. Some prefer a strong water pressure to the point of knocking them off their feet))) The bed linen was also changed. I can't say how many times because that detail is not critical for me. Oh, and they made figures out of towels. We were satisfied with the room and the cleaning. It felt like they were waiting for us; everything was neat and clean. FOOD and RESTAURANTS: The main breakfast and lunch took place on the second floor of the Elegance building. The main restaurant had two halls. The buffet line was only on one side of the hall, making it seem like there wasn't much food at first. In other hotels, the same dishes are distributed in

We arrived from Minsk at 7 am and were greeted by an individual transfer for the four of us - it was pleasant. The staff welcomed us with smiles and promptly checked us into the Park building, as we had a promotional tour. But we were satisfied. Our rooms, 746 and 747, had everything working properly, including the internet connection. The hotel staff were incredibly kind! They fulfilled all our requests with warmth and humor. At the request for my children's 5th wedding anniversary, they organized an invitation in the form of a letter, decorated the room, provided fruits, and reserved a table in the restaurant. We really loved the attitude of the staff. During a thunderstorm, they tried to shelter us from the rain, then provided blankets and we spent time in the bar. The food also pleased us. Of course, there were minor flaws, but the hotel is aware of them and tries to make improvements. It would have been nice if dinner lasted longer, as we returned from an excursion at 9:30 pm and most dishes had already been cleared, and we wanted to eat. It's good that there was a late-night soup, but it wasn't enough. It would have been great if the milkshake bar stayed open at least until 6 pm. And at the beach, there were plenty of spots, but they seemed crowded. The entrance to the sea could be extended with wooden flooring, as it was quite inconvenient. The beach toilet was often somewhat dirty. The beach showers were in a sorry state, everything was leaking, and three showers were not enough for such a number of people. The entertainment during our stay was very repetitive. However, we were able to witness a Turkish wedding twice. Overall, the hotel has a great atmosphere, with many locations for taking photos, and the turtles and cats were incredibly cute! I spent a lot of time with the animals and loved it! And the corn vendor... something else. He confused me with the change and money exchange. The hotel could have sold corn as well, like pancakes. I would have liked freshly squeezed juice in the morning, after all, this is an ultra hotel. The coffee was fantastic, and the champagne bar was great! Thanks to Irina, the Russian-speaking girl at the reception, you are a professional and truly care about your guests! Thank you to everyone at the hotel!!! I love you with all my heart! It felt so good and homely!! Keep getting better and better!! We will definitely come back!!

We stayed at this hotel from October 6th to 16th, 222nd year. The hotel shocks with its extravagance upon entering, resembling a sultan's palace, everything is covered in gold :), but then you get used to such a style. The check-in process was quick, and we were given a good room on the 1st floor of the main building. The only downside was that there was no balcony, but it wasn't essential for us. There was a narrow 1 cm balcony with a clothesline to hang laundry. Our friends stayed in another building, which was simpler, but they had a balcony-veranda on the 1st floor with a table and chairs. There are pros and cons everywhere. The territory is well-maintained and beautiful. There are many quiet spots with tables and benches hidden behind bushes where you can relax in silence, it feels like a palace garden. The food is excellent, they serve delicious and diverse meals, with meat and fish every day, thanks to the chef. There are several bars on the premises. The drinks, like everywhere, include beer, wine, and spirits, which are good, especially the beer. The animation during the day and evening is very good. In the evenings, there are worthy cover bands for adults to listen to or dance along if desired. There is also animation and mini-disco for children. The beach is nice and spacious, with stone structures with columns and open seating areas with umbrellas. Finding available sunbeds is never a problem. The sea entry is normal, and there is a pier. There are many cats and kittens on the premises, which cat lovers will enjoy, but they don't bother anyone, and there is no visible dirt from them. Overall, it was a successful vacation, and I recommend it to everyone. If there is an interesting special offer, I would gladly return to this hotel. The hotel is a bit far from bustling Antalya, located in Lara. It is inconvenient to travel to the center of Antalya, only by taxi. There are some shopping centers on the outskirts of Antalya, but they are not very interesting. However, what mattered to us more was the beach vacation, so we were very satisfied.

My friend and I stayed at this wonderful place at the end of October. We were very satisfied. The huge plus was the proximity to the airport! It only took us 15 minutes to get to the hotel. Check-in was fast. Instead of being accommodated in the Club, we were given a room in the Park, on the first floor, near the pool. The water in the pool was invigorating in October and a great way to wake up. Initially, the room shocked us - it was a small mirrored box, but we got used to it. The numerous mirrors turned out to be convenient for girls. The territory was large, well-kept, and interesting. The sea in October was amazing, warm, and we enjoyed swimming. The animation team did a good job, we had fun shooting targets and playing darts with an interesting group of people. We were very pleased that there were no amateur performances in the evenings. The hotel invites music groups to entertain the guests. The discos took place outdoors. They moved indoors for the winter concept, but it was very stuffy there. We had the chance to experience two holidays - Halloween and Republic Day in Turkey, everything was very fun and well-organized. I can't say much about the internet connection, we bought a SIM card from a nearby store and used that internet. The food was excellent, abundant, and always available. We were recorded by the lovely guest relations girls for the a la carte restaurants three times in a week. The only downside of the vacation was the pushy lady from the fur shop. Would I like to return to this hotel? Yes, absolutely. Thank you to the entire team of this hotel for the wonderful organization of our vacation.

We stayed at the hotel with my husband and a 3-year-old child from December 222 to January 223. It is an excellent hotel for a family vacation, with a beautiful large area where you can take a walk and see turtles and cats. The location of the hotel itself is also great, with nearby attractions such as waterfalls, sandland, a small dolphinarium, numerous parks, and cafes along the waterfront with playgrounds. I would like to specifically mention the children's entertainment, the girls were amazing! Every day, the children made different crafts, participated in master classes (they made cookies, created vases, and conducted scientific experiments), and there was daily face painting upon request. Several trips to the dolphinarium were also organized. The child was completely satisfied with everything! For adults, there were activities such as billiards, various sports activities, bocce, shooting, and more. During our stay, there were several parties organized: Christmas (with a disco, Santa Claus, and a sweet holiday gift hanging on our room door in the morning), a party with stilt walkers, New Year's Eve, and others. Live music was provided every day. The food was generally standard for a buffet in Turkey, you definitely won't go hungry, there is always something to choose from for both adults and children. Only one A'la Carte restaurant was open during the winter time, and everything we tried there was enjoyable.

In November, I visited the hotel for the second time this season. It so happened that there was a short business trip from November 3rd to 6th, and we (17 people) stayed at "Sera" hotel. We arrived at the hotel around 9 am. The rooms were reserved in the "Elegance" building. The rooms were given to us instantly, but to our surprise, ALL of us - 8 rooms in total - were given rooms in the "Club" building!!! When we asked, "How is this possible? What about our reservations? Our rooms were more expensive?" they replied that there was some large group that extended their stay and they couldn't move us. Well, sort yourselves out, there are no other rooms. This is complete nonsense. We approached Guest Relations and received a compliment from the hotel - fruits in each room. Ha-ha-ha!!! A room in the "Club" building is like a cell, two people squeezing each other, the balcony barely fits 2 people, and the bathroom is too small for one person. Who was this built for - gnomes??? In general, it can't compare to the rooms in the "Elegance" building. We stayed there with my family - 3 adults - in a standard room located on the 1st floor with a terrace. I have no complaints about the room in the "Elegance" building. Cleaning in the "Club" building was also a problem - in our room, they couldn't remove a plate from the "Fruit compliment" for 3 days, and the coffee and tea cups were not washed. They only made the beds and replenished the toiletries. Since the winter season at the hotel starts on November 1st, some restaurants on the street were not open, and not all bars were open either. We went to "Saffron" - we really liked it. Everything was delicious, and they served us quickly, even though we were a large group. There was live music and a girl dancing. On the last day, we approached Maria at the reception. We asked to extend our rooms - without any questions, they extended it for free from 15,. This was probably the hotel's second "compliment" for the mistake with the rooms. Thanks to Maria for her care and apologies for the work of her colleagues. The business trip went well, but there was a slight disappointment with the hotel. My first impression in August was better. What a pity.

We stayed at the hotel from November 6th to 13th. All the positive impressions were ruined by the last morning when a bed bug crawled over the bed. I squashed it. Then I compared it to the unknown insect bites on my oldest daughter and husband's bodies, googled what a bed bug looks like. I was just shocked that in the 21st century, in a five-star hotel, we could be bitten by bed bugs! As a result, when we got off the plane, we went to a sauna instead of going home to disinfect our belongings at 60 degrees Celsius and not bring this infestation home. The next day, my daughter had a severe allergic reaction, facial swelling, we had to call an ambulance, she received a prednisolone injection, and we had to visit an infectious disease specialist at the hospital. I can't believe that the hotel administration is not aware of a bed bug epidemic! I sent a complaint to the hotel's email, but didn't receive any response! Here is also a link to a review with bed bugs. They stayed the week before us - TopHotels.

We stayed at the hotel from October 26th to November 3rd. The fact that it is the first hotel from Antalya Airport is a plus, it took us 15 minutes to get to the reception. We arrived at 9:45 and managed to have breakfast at the main restaurant, although there is also breakfast available on the beach at that time. We didn't wait long for our room, within an hour we were able to have coffee at the lobby bar and by 12 we were already sunbathing. We were fortunate with the weather, all 9 days were sunny with a temperature of 27 degrees and the water was 24 degrees. In fact, in the morning at 7-3, the water seemed even warmer than at 2 pm. We stayed in the Club building, a beautiful room which is called the "malachite box," with everything covered in mirrors and the walls adorned with malachite and gold. The shower and hairdryer were convenient, and there were shampoos, gel, conditioner, soap, slippers, and upon our request, they brought toothpaste, toothbrushes, cotton swabs, disks, a cap, bathrobes and beach bags without any problems. The minibar had cola, Fanta, water, and juice, and they replenished anything that was missing every day. The safe was free, but there was no Wi-Fi or paid Wi-Fi available. At first, there were a couple of Russian channels on the TV, but then they disappeared completely. Lunch was served at the main restaurant or at the snack bar on the beach. There are also coffee shops where you can find different types of coffee such as Turkish, latte, cappuccino, whiskey coffee, coffee latte machito, and so on, as well as tea with different varieties and pastries such as halva, baklava, and rahat-lokum. We visited 4 À-la-carte restaurants, and everything was free: a sushi restaurant, a Mongolian restaurant, a Turkish restaurant, and a seafood restaurant. We enjoyed mussels, calamari, shrimp, salmon, dorado, and sea bass cooked in various ways. The alcohol was locally produced, not everyone liked it, but you could enjoy a couple of cocktails, Aperol, champagne, whiskey, gin, and raki in moderation. I didn't try the beer, but there was ice cream available from 2 pm to 4 pm. There are various activities such as boccia, water aerobics, yoga, and more. They also take care of children. In the evening, there is live music, dancing, and a great atmosphere. In the lobby and during dinner, you can relax and enjoy the music played on the piano and violin. The hammam was also good, with 2 steam rooms and an indoor pool and jacuzzi starting from November. On the premises, you can encounter giant turtles. I would love to come back here again. I enjoyed everything, as relaxation and leisure were ensured.

The voucher for this hotel was bought a long time ago, but due to COVID restrictions, we were only able to come this year. We arrived at 7:1 and took an individual transfer, it took about a minute to get from the airport, and here we are at the beautiful hotel/palace. We were greeted with a smile and immediately given the keys to our room. By 8:3, we were already having breakfast. Pleasant impressions from the first minutes of our stay at the hotel after a long overnight flight. And this feeling of a wonderful vacation never left us throughout the entire time. We liked everything: the cleaning (on the first day they moved the beds, immediately changed the bed linen to a larger sheet, and then changed the bedding after a week), the service in the restaurants (always with a smile, unobtrusive, attentive), the food in the various restaurants and cafes (we didn't even have a chance to try everything!! and if breakfast and lunch were more or less consistent, the chefs always presented something new for dinner), the territory (clean, well-kept, cozy), the shopping (we went to Sigorta and Lara to the bazaars by public transport, found worthy items at very low prices), the non-intrusiveness of the tours offered by the tour operator (we handed over the voucher and that was it! We walked to the waterfalls ourselves), the evening concerts, the live music in the lobby - everything was excellent and tasteful! We even appreciated the lack of internet in the rooms as a plus, we are on vacation and didn't want to spoil it with work-related matters. The only small downside was the animals on the beach. I love animals, but when they start pawing at your sunbed or during lunch... Nevertheless, I would love to come back!

We were vacationing with my husband at CLUB HOTEL SERA in July of the year 222. We arrived around 8 am and checked in at 11 am. We booked the CLUB STANDARD ROOM. We were satisfied with the room - beautiful, luxurious, magnificent, stylish. The minibar was replenished daily, cleaning and towel changes were done daily, no complaints. Upon request, bathrobes and a kettle with tea were provided. The air conditioner in the room worked fine during the day, but at night it was unclear, the temperature could not be adjusted. The food was plentiful, it was impossible to go hungry. Everything was deliciously prepared. We dined for ten days and couldn't even try everything - it's just impossible to eat that much! The hotel's territory is like a fairy tale! Words cannot describe it, I am attaching photos, judge for yourself. The beach is nice - small pebbles with sand, a gentle and convenient entry into the sea. The water is warm and clean - simply amazing! The staff is friendly and helpful. The animators worked unobtrusively - a big plus! The jewelry store on the hotel grounds shocked us with its architecture and luxury! I recommend visiting. I would like to express my gratitude to the hotel for organizing our vacation! A huge thank you to all the waiters - well done, guys! Special thanks to the chefs - everything was deliciously prepared! Thank you Guest Relations! All our questions were resolved instantly. They gave us beach bags and hats! It was very nice! We are very grateful to the hotel's guide, Zaur, for the prompt organization of our return transfer to the airport. Pegasus, for some unknown reason, did not come for us. Within ten minutes, Zaur arranged an individual transfer to the airport for us. We traveled comfortably in a Mercedes! We were pleasantly surprised! We are satisfied with our vacation and recommend the hotel, and we will happily come back again!!!

The reviewer 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.

avatar

We stayed at the hotel in May 222. The impression was great. We really liked the hotel. It is beautiful, in Eastern style, with a large green area. The rooms are comfortable, clean, spacious, and beautiful. Bed linen and towels are changed daily. The room cleaning is of high quality. The minibar is restocked daily. The staff is polite and responsive, always ready to help with any question. The restaurants are wonderful. The food is diverse and delicious. There are many grilled dishes, ranging from different types of meat to vegetables. For dessert, there is a wide selection of sweets and fruits. The lobby area is particularly impressive. Drinks are constantly offered, and live music - piano - plays at certain times. Every evening there is some entertainment program at the hotel, so you definitely won't be bored. The beach is nice, with small pebbles, and there are comfortable sunbeds and umbrellas available. There is plenty of space for everyone. The sea is clean and beautiful. We are very satisfied with our choice of hotel! We plan to return in August. We definitely recommend this hotel for a visit.

Good, luxurious interior (formerly a casino!) 5-star hotel, but for some reason we won't go there again: -The sea is not very clean (compared to the Kemer district); -Lack of 24-hour (for ULTRA!!) access to drinking water (constantly have to ask at bars that do not operate 24/7, even in the lobby); -Lack of 24-hour access to hot drinks (tea, coffee) - vending machines are turned off when the bars close / compared to ULTRA hotels in Kemer, Belek, Side); -Weak entertainment in terms of organizing sports activities. The hotel is very convenient for a passive holiday: - Plenty of space on 4 beaches (pebble, tiled-stone, pier + small sandy one for young children); - Plenty of space for relaxation throughout the large territory - chairs, tables, sun loungers, sofas, armchairs; - Plenty of different themed bars (7 total + 1 in the lobby club-building) and restaurants.

Here is the translation of the text: And so, the wonderful vacation at the luxurious Club Sera hotel has come to an end. This time, my mother and I stayed for over 3 weeks! From the first minutes, you find yourself in a true Turkish fairy tale, where you feel special. The huge territory, immersed in flowers, pools and bars, exquisite lobby and rooms. The food in the restaurants is quite diverse and delicious. There are 2 bars worth mentioning - CIP bar with delicious cocktails, impeccable presentation and quality of cocktails, and the champagne bar where you can enjoy Prosecco and champagne-based cocktails. But most importantly, it's the people. The hotel staff tries their best to ensure the guests are happy. We were greeted at the reception by Ayhan - a true professional, Mehmet, the reception manager, could anticipate our wishes. Irina in Guest Relations is charming and always ready to help with any enquiries. In the lobby bar, the two managers, Sedat and Emre, are always welcoming and positive. The best waitress is Mehtap, the absolute best waiter is Murat Ildes, and the bartender Huseyn works wonders with drinks and garnishes. During the season, there are 3 à la carte restaurants. The sushi restaurant is run by professional Chef Hasan. And the most amazing impression is made by the hotel animation. The events are organized unobtrusively and at a very high level: Aqua Bike, Aqua Jump, foam parties in the pool - it's all amazing, and the concerts of Murat Alpsu are particularly impressive. The famous performer gives concerts at this hotel twice a week - it's simply unforgettable! Definitely do not miss it! Why am I writing such a detailed review about the hotel staff? - Because they are the ones who make your vacation unforgettable, and I have mentioned the names of the professionals to acknowledge the work of these wonderful people, so that they continue to create an excellent impression of the vacation. Thank you for everything! I will definitely come back here and highly recommend staying for at least 2 weeks. There is so much to see and do here.

I would like to clarify two points: 1. I have only been to Turkey for the second time, the first time was at a 5-star hotel in Belek. 2. The room in Sera was a park room because the tour operator canceled at the last moment and we were only able to rebook a park room, which I understood to be the cheapest rooms. Overall, the hotel was not bad, there were no terrible experiences, but there were many "buts" that make me unlikely to return to Sera. Firstly, the room was once beautiful...at some point. Without even looking closely, it is clear that the room is worn out, with the cabinet doors scratched and buildup on the bathroom fixtures. There were some sticky streaks on the bathroom countertop. I'm not a neat freak, but even I found it unpleasant. There were no towel racks in the bathroom or any way to dry things on the balcony. We had to hang our swimsuits and towels on the back of the balcony chairs, and nothing dried properly. By the way, we only had two towels, and one was shared for our feet. Secondly, the room cleaning was simply a formality. They just made the bed and replenished the shampoo. The cleaning was done in the afternoon, which may be normal, but it was strange to me because I often wanted to rest in the room during the hottest part of the day after lunch. They didn't clean the room one day, and the next day, they took the old towels but forgot to leave new ones, so we only had one towel for the both of us. Trying to resolve the issue over the phone didn't work, as the phone system seemed as old as the hotel. After going to the reception in the main building, they finally brought two towels to our room. They did not provide any bathrobes or other amenities, which we didn't ask for, but it still left a sour feeling. After all, the hotel positions itself as a 5-star establishment. The hotel grounds are quite spacious, and there is room for walks. That is probably the only plus. There are turtles in the mini park, which I guess work as animators. The beach has small pebbles, but there were some broken glass pieces. Compared to the hotel we stayed at last year, the beach was tiny, but it seemed to be sufficient for everyone. We didn't occupy any sun loungers; we just came to swim and then returned to the pool. Speaking of the pools, they were nice, clean, and the water was warm. But the pool with the slide, which was filled with sea water, was not very pleasant to slide into. The salty water irritated our nose and throat. But that's subjective, and some people might have enjoyed it. The children's pool was basically just a shallow pool without slides, fountains, or any other structures for kids to have fun with. The kids simply sat in it and splashed around. The food didn't seem very diverse to me. Neither of us is picky, but by the 5th day, we were struggling to find something to eat. The choices were limited. Particularly disappointing was the absence of seasonal fruits. There were only apples and apricots with some unripe plums. Even watermelons were not available every day; we saw melons and a handful of bananas once. Meanwhile, the local markets were overflowing with strawberries, nectarines, and even cherries, so it seemed like the hotel was cutting corners. We couldn't find any snack bars open throughout the day; there were à la carte options, but we couldn't figure out when and where they were available. Every time we went, there was nothing. Maybe that's how it is in Antalya hotels, but last year in Belek, there were always delicious treats around. The biggest drawback for me was the absence of a children's table. If I had traveled with a child, I wouldn't know how to feed them. Although there were many guests with children of various ages, they seemed to be mostly eating French fries. The general menu was not suitable for children, as it had many spices. Another negative aspect was the large number of smokers. It's not entirely the hotel's fault, but there were a couple of times when we had to leave our sun loungers because someone nearby was smoking. Even during dinner, people often smoked at neighboring tables. The waiters at dinner were efficient and quickly served the drinks we ordered, so they deserve a plus for that. The animators were not intrusive and always had some activities going on. The hotel staff were polite and sociable, so another plus for them. And the cherry on top was the airplanes passing right above our heads. They didn't really bother us too much, but when we were relaxing in a quiet corner on a couch and having a conversation, we had to pause whenever a plane flew by because the noise made it impossible to hear each other. The planes flew constantly, almost every couple of minutes.

Good afternoon! The flight from Chelyabinsk was clean, but the seats didn't recline. We arrived at 8 am and were immediately accommodated in the main building. The room was spacious, but the cleanliness was average. The biggest downside of this hotel was that the air conditioner didn't work. According to the owners, as they said at the reception, the air conditioner only works from 1 pm to 6 pm. In the morning, when the sun was up, the temperature in the room rose to 27.5 degrees, making it impossible to sleep longer. Even in the evening, the room was hot, and although they suggested sleeping with the balcony open, it didn't help. Many guests were outraged and made lists and complaints, but it was useless. The hotel grounds are excellent! Now, about the food: there is a wide selection of meat, fish, and vegetables. Everything is delicious. HOWEVER, if you don't arrive at the restaurant opening, you have to set the table yourself and then try to catch a waiter to pour you wine. There is a constant shortage of glasses, and the waiters try their best but cannot keep up. There are no ashtrays (or something similar) on the tables to dispose of napkins or cigarette butts. As a result, napkins are scattered throughout the restaurant due to the wind, and there are cigarette butts everywhere. The staff is friendly and trying their best, but they may not be able to keep up. We went to MarkAntalya Mall and Terra City Mall by bus, and it was comfortable. The prices for goods have changed, but not critically.

The vacation was absolutely fantastic! We, a young couple, were initially assigned to the cheapest building (as per our payment), but we went to the Reception and politely asked for a room change. They kindly gave us a wonderful room on the 3rd floor of the Elegance building with a view of the pool. The food was delicious and suited all gourmands. I even developed a liking for lamb, which I had never eaten before. There were also grilled fish, chicken, and amazing desserts every day. The grilled vegetables were outstanding. The cocktails were tasty and well-crafted, except for the ones served at the pool bar and common areas during lunch and dinner. However, it was worth going to get them, as the Tequila Sunrise and Blue Lagoon cocktails were my favorites. The territory was large, beautiful, and creatively designed. There was enough space for everyone, and it never felt crowded. Since we love animals, it was a joy for us to pet dogs, play with turtles, and stroke cats. The entertainment was great. Every day, there was live music or a symphony orchestra. I also tried aquabiking, which was simply superb. The location was convenient, with a bus stop right outside the hotel from where we could go anywhere. I highly recommend visiting the old town of Kaleici and the Mark of Antalya shopping center. And while you're there, make sure to try the local beef kebab – you've never had shawarma like this before. We are very pleased with our vacation and highly recommend this hotel. The only downside is that the internet is only available in the lobby, but for us, it was actually a plus. It allowed us to spend some time away from the internet. You can purchase internet access throughout the hotel's premises, but we didn't need it.

Greetings everyone! If you are interested in this hotel, you are on the right track! The hotel is the closest to the airport, which is a plus! The final bus stop is near the hotel, so you can easily reach all of Antalya. You will need a bus card. The water fountain and Duden Park are a 2-minute walk away without any stops. You just need to go around the military base on the sidewalk, and you're there. The hotel has three categories of rooms. Elegance is the most spacious, and bathrobes and slippers are available upon request. Toothbrushes, razors, and kettles are also provided. However, there are no tea or coffee packets in the rooms. There are TV channels in Russian. Breakfast and lunch are served in the main restaurant, while dinners are held outside. Almost everything is available in the menu. The à la carte restaurant serves seafood and Mongolian cuisine, and I highly recommend it. Throughout the day, there are many places to snack and have a drink. The pools are not heated, but they are warmer than the sea. It's May, after all. The hotel grounds are exceptional, surpassing all expectations. The interior of the hotel is also luxurious. The minibar is weak for two people, with only two 0.5 liter bottles of cola and mineral water, without beer. There is a kids' club and basic amenities for children. Ice cream is available at designated times. The beach has a shallow entry into the sea, about 5 meters deep up to the neck. There is a pier for diving. The evening shows after 9 PM are fantastic and worth your attention. The whiskey is imported, Bell's brand, but the rest of the alcohol is local. However, it's always good to exercise caution as they might serve local instead of imported. The hotel is not new, but it has been well-preserved.

We chose the hotel based on reviews on Tophotels.ru and were not mistaken in our choice. The hotel consists of three buildings. The central 13-story Elegans building has the most spacious rooms in beige and brown tones. The second building, Club, is 5 stories high and located closer to the sea, with a pool nearby. The rooms there are smaller in size, with green and pink finishes. And the third building, Park, is the most modest and quiet, furthest from the sea, and also offers single-story Annex rooms with separate entrances from the street. When purchasing our package, my husband and I chose roh, and the hotel could accommodate us either in Club or Park at their discretion. It was the most cost-effective option. Upon check-in, we presented a recommendation letter from Tophotels, and instead of the already reserved room for us in the Park building, we were offered a higher-category room in the Club building. I cannot fail to mention, as has been mentioned many times before, how beautiful the hotel is. The Eastern-style decor creates the feeling that you have entered the palace of Hurrem Sultan. In the Club building, the room is green with gold accents, and the walls and even the ceiling are adorned with mirrors. The room is compact but cozy, like a jewelry box. The room is equipped with bathrobes and slippers, a set of towels, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and soap. The mini-bar includes two bottles of drinking water (0.5 L), mineral water, Fanta and Coke (0.33 L each), as well as a packet of orange juice. All of this is replenished daily, and bottled drinking water is always available in open access. The balcony offers a partial view of the sea. There is a huge jewelry store on the hotel grounds. The prices there are certainly excessively high, but it is definitely worth visiting for the magnificent decor alone, even just for aesthetic pleasure. The food is of very high quality, varied, and caters to all tastes. There is always beef, chicken, and turkey, while lamb is not available every day, and fish is served daily. The vegetables are perfectly prepared, and there are delicious side dishes. For dinner, there is a wide selection of dishes cooked over an open fire. My husband is a big fan of Turkish soups (traditionally pureed) and praised them. In addition to breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you can enjoy hot pies of two types (pide and gözleme), which are prepared daily by the pool from 11 am to 4 pm. The same area also offers ice cream daily. Practically all beverages are included (we purchased the ultra all-inclusive concept), except for freshly squeezed juice and premium alcohol, which come at an additional cost. From 4 pm to 6 pm, you can enjoy tea, coffee, and sweet pastries and desserts. I'm not a fan, so I can't comment on the taste of the pastries, but the selection is quite varied. The hotel has several à la carte restaurants, three of which were open during our stay: Sushi, Mongolia, and Olympus. Reservations were required for Sushi and the Mongolian restaurant, where they serve something similar to wok noodles, where you choose the ingredients yourself and they cook it in front of you. Olympus had free entry without a reservation, and the dishes can be ordered from the menu, with waiter service. The menu includes dishes from Italian cuisine such as pasta and pizza, among others. My husband and I ordered a medium steak, and it was prepared very well. There are three open-air swimming pools, one of which has sea water and small slides. There are numerous areas for sunbathing and beach activities. Everything is beautifully decorated and cozy. There are several soft zones, which are chargeable during high season, but we were able to use them freely at the beginning of the season. The beach is declared as sandy, but in reality, it is a mixture of very small pebbles, large sand particles, and plenty of small shells. As a delicate lady, it was uncomfortable for me to walk barefoot. There is also a beach area with a ladder leading into the sea. Beach towels are provided based on cards and can be changed daily, even multiple times a day. There is a separate beach for families with young children, equipped with fine sand, making it very safe for little ones to splash around. For children, there is a kids' club and animators. Daily animation activities were available at the hotel, except on Sundays. In the evening, there was a children's disco followed by an adult one. There were also live concerts three times during our stay. During the day, there was live music (piano) in the lobby of the main building after lunch and after dinner. I particularly enjoyed the piano player Ozan Turgay's style of performance. I would also like to mention the friendliness of the staff, especially the very pleasant girl at the reception named Nigan, who is always ready to help and provide guidance. There is a responsive girl working at the lobby bar who makes excellent Turkish coffee. I must also mention the work of photographer Yunus and his assistant. My husband and I booked a photo session and were very pleased with the results: we received over a hundred photos electronically, a beautiful souvenir photo album, and a large canvas poster. I highly recommend it. A few drawbacks: After lunch, we had to close the balcony because the smoke from cooking over an open fire would enter the room directly, which was unpleasant. Personally, I didn't like the wine served during lunch and dinner, but this is subjective as many people enjoyed it. It was not very pleasant to see people in white bathrobes in the lobby and on the hotel grounds. This is not a criticism of the hotel, but rather the level of culture of the guests: it is simply indecent to wear bathrobes in public areas and on the beach. Overall, our vacation was comfortable and peaceful. We thank the hotel for their care.

We were purposefully going to the hotel, as we had already been here before. But coming back this time, there was a feeling of disappointment. The cleaning is bad, and the bar is only restocked occasionally. The animators, Masha and Serkan, used to be more active. The service has also gotten worse. Now, nobody comes to the restaurant anymore and asks what you would like to drink. Only if you call them yourself. In general, the hotel is good, true, but if you compare then and now, it has deteriorated ((((

avatar

We have been vacationing at this resort not for the first time. Last year, we also came at this time to celebrate my husband's birthday. But this year, the hotel has changed significantly, and not for the better. It's not just about the ongoing renovations in the main building. The quality and quantity of food have worsened compared to last year (we were here on the same dates, and the seasonality is not a factor). Red fish, cream, certain types of cheese, good wine, and delicious meat have disappeared from the menu. As for the animation, I won't even mention it. The entire team of animators was fired, and when we asked, "Where are the animators?" they said they have a new team. But none of the guests saw this team. Only towards the end of our stay, one animator approached us, which apparently is their whole team now. Last year, there was bowling, morning gymnastics, bicycles outside, darts, and tennis. This year, there were no entertainments at all. Administrators only talked about them, but in reality, there was nothing. Live music always played during lunch and dinner, but this year, it only played in the lobby during lunch, and not every day. Even last year, we had a surprise waiting for us in the room for my husband's birthday in the form of a cake and fruits, but this year, there was nothing. It's very sad, of course. It used to be a very good and decent hotel. And now they turned it into a disappointment.

We stayed at a hotel in September 222. I was hesitant after my usual trips to Thailand, thinking it may not live up to expectations. But it exceeded them! I didn't even bother looking for flaws, maybe that's why I didn't see any. The hotel is charming! It doesn't try to be stylish, and it doesn't need to. It's cozy, bright, warm, and friendly. I stayed in the club building and felt like a princess from a fairy tale. It was perfect for us girls. In the evenings, we would lay out our dresses and accessories on the pink couch... This hotel is full of vibrant colors, mirrors, and a theatrical, unique atmosphere! It rejuvenated me and filled me with warmth and light for the upcoming winter. The hotel staff were all smiles. Zechariah welcomed me in the lobby like a family member. I asked for water and the housekeeper brought four bottles at once. Later, a guy brought a few more bottles. It may seem like a small thing, but it was a pleasant gesture. The hotel surprised and delighted me with small gifts. The food was delicious, and I was worried about my waistline. I love cats, so I was happy to see them on the premises. There were some intelligent turtles wandering around too. Two of them were walking and then hit a step, unable to proceed... They paused for a moment, then decided to climb up the ramp. It's a shame I didn't have my phone to capture that show. In the evenings, there was entertainment and concerts. When I wanted peace and quiet, there were plenty of cozy corners where I could sit with a glass of wine or a cup of delicious coffee. Overall, the hotel was a source of joy, surprise, and I fell more in love with it every day. I want to go back.

Location - 15 km from Antalya airport. The downside is that planes fly overhead every half an hour. It's quieter at night and on weekends. You can get used to it. The hotel is designed like an eastern palace, with gold, mirrors, etc. The décor is not new but nothing is falling apart. There are few Russians and children. The room has air conditioning, a safe, a television, and a balcony. Wifi is paid, around 18s, I don't remember exactly. It's free in the lobby. Housekeeping is done every day, there are plenty of shampoos and a minibar. The beach is on the premises. There is a sandy beach and one with a pier. The sea is dirty, but tolerable, since it's in the city. The food is great - chicken, turkey, lamb, beef, fish, tongue. There were shrimp and mussels for a couple of days. Vegetables and fruits are as usual. Drinks range from Martini to whisky, gin, vodka. Coffee and ice cream are also available. The a la carte options include Mongolian and Japanese cuisine. I recommend the Mongolian. We stayed in a not-so-great building (there are 3 on the premises), but didn't feel any inconvenience. Dogs bark at night, the hotel definitely needs to address this issue. The entertainment is by the sea, the night dances don't disturb. Shopping centers - if you want to save money, take a taxi to Depo Outlet for 1s. Terra City is nearby, 9 lira by bus, there are sales there too. I'm satisfied with the vacation, I recommend it.

From August 19th to 27th, we enjoyed our stay at the hotel. We arrived in the morning, but unfortunately, we were only checked in at 2 o'clock. Most people were checked in much earlier, but it seems we were unlucky. Formally, there is nothing to complain about, but we would have liked to be checked in earlier. We were accommodated in the Club building. The room was on the 5th floor, small but cozy. The room service staff was a delight. They were very polite and attentive. In the past 4-5 years, this hotel has had the friendliest staff. The same can't be said about the staff in the main restaurants and the Sushi bar, where the service was terrible. In the main restaurants, it seems like the staff is not very efficient, and sometimes they don't want to be. The food was good but without any special touches. It was tasty. My suggestion would be to diversify the fish menu. We occasionally had hot-smoked mackerel and grilled fish like zander, but only once we had tuna, and it wasn't great. It's a bit sad. Personally, I love fish dishes. The hotel grounds are not very large, but very cozy. There are plenty of places where you can spend a peaceful evening comfortably. I would like to mention the poor internet connection separately. In my opinion, in hotels like this, it should be available throughout the entire premises, including the rooms. But this is the 21st century, some kind of archaism. I also want to mention the beach. I love swimming far into the sea: the sea is great, but unfortunately, the beach at the hotel is quite small. And many places were constantly occupied, even though in half cases, no one showed up. It is a big problem. We would come at 8 am and already had difficulty finding empty sun loungers, while the best spots remained empty. We would leave at 11 am, and many people still hadn't come. Something needs to be done about this. It's a message to the hotel management. And of course, I would like to point out the underutilized area with access to the sea from the pier and stairs. Since the beach is not enough, these areas are almost empty. My suggestion to the hotel is to make something convenient for the tourists there or expand the beach. It would be greatly appreciated by the tourists. So, I really hope to see the implementation of at least some of my suggestions. They will help improve your service. Good luck!

I rested in April. The room was in the main elegant building. Spacious room, large balcony. Cleaning was done every day and they cleaned well. The air conditioner was not needed, I slept with the balcony open and the noise didn't bother me. The staff was very professional, polite, and friendly. The resort had a large, well-maintained beautiful area, excellent sea, and there were always enough beach spots, it was even empty in the beginning. In April, only the main restaurant was open and everything was delicious and diverse. There is a bus stop across from the hotel, making it easy to reach the center of Antalya. The Duden Waterfalls (15 minutes walk) have a beautiful park. If desired, you don't even have to leave the hotel, it has everything for a comfortable stay. The airport is just a few minutes away. I am ready to choose Sera for my vacation again and can confidently recommend it to my friends.

We stayed at the hotel for a day, for my mom's birthday celebration! (She lived in this hotel) We didn't understand much about the check-in process upon arrival. Two days before arrival, we were told at the reception that the room rate was 75€ per day. In reality, it turned out to be 2€. We had a reservation on Level Travel for around 1314€ per day, but we relied on the information from the reception. The room was spacious, everything was great, including slippers, bathrobes, and all toiletries. There was a bathtub, which surprised us. The sea was amazing in November, it was very warm even when it rained at times. Beach towels were available without restrictions. The food was delicious and varied. It took a long time to choose from such a wide assortment. A la carte service was excellent! Both the food and the service, as well as the alcohol. We were very satisfied! The hotel was very beautiful, with luxurious decorations and everything in style. It's unlikely that we'll return (it's too extravagant). But we can definitely recommend it! The hotel is perfect for those who love to eat delicious food and relax. There are many foreigners, from different countries.

It all started well, but then we were delayed by 2 hours, and so on. We took off and arrived late for lunch. Hungry and angry, we had a snack. We waited for dinner and that was it. We were exhausted, as we hadn't slept all night before. The summer concept was coming to an end. They fed us well for 2 days, and then the winter concept began and all the outdoor cafes closed. The food was good, but not as good as during the summer concept, although the price was normal - 25 for 12 nights. The hotel started slacking off, the cleaning wasn't as it should be. The weather was great, except for two heavy rains during the day, each lasting 1-1.5 hours. On the third night, there was a thunderstorm. The sea was amazing and warm. On the beach, there were only snacks and drinks. You wouldn't go hungry. We were here in April and it was better. We had lunch on the beach and in the room. Anyway, I won't come here out of season anymore. We came here for New Year's, I don't remember which year, about 3 years ago, and everything was great. And another funny thing, they picked us up 12 hours earlier, so we definitely lost one day.

We arrived at the hotel around 13. They immediately gave us a room on the 6th floor in the main building with a view of the city and partially the sea. We enjoyed beautiful sunrises in the morning. The hotel grounds were beautiful, although we were there during the off-season and not much was open. The beach bar and the café where they baked gözleme were still operating. There was no evening entertainment, but there was live music in the restaurant and lobby. The hotel was already preparing for New Year's, with a Christmas tree and decorations around the property, even though it was mid-November. The food was good, with a wide variety of options including fish, chicken, turkey, beef, sushi, abundant fruits, and sweets. They baked gözleme in the restaurant for breakfast. We tried the à la carte restaurant, but it didn't impress us. The lobby made delicious alcoholic cocktails, and we also enjoyed their milkshakes. The sea was not too cold, around 23-24 degrees Celsius, and everyone was swimming. There were enough sun loungers for everyone, despite the hotel being crowded. The dogs on the beach didn't bother us as the staff would clean up after them. The indoor pool in the spa was cold, although they claimed it was heated. No one was swimming in it, but we liked the hammam. The Wi-Fi was excellent and worked well at the bus stop near the hotel and on the beach. The staff was friendly and always smiling. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

A very beautiful hotel with excellent service and exquisite cuisine. I would especially like to mention Mustafa at reception, Halil Can, Bayram, Mustafa, and Zeki Can - the staff at the main restaurant and the a-la-carte. These employees are always ready to help in any situation. Sometimes there were no available seats in the restaurant, and all tables were occupied by tourists, but the staff at the main restaurant, led by Halil Can, always found free tables, and we had no problems. Hats off to Halil Can and all the waiters. Mustafa at reception checked us into our room immediately upon arrival at the hotel, without waiting until 14:00. We are extremely grateful to him for this. All hotel employees are very friendly and ready to help. I will definitely come back to this hotel again and again. I can't stop loving this hotel, even though I have already stayed here 7 times. I am falling more and more in love with the charm of this hotel.

And not even thinking, not even guessing, but after 4 years (it was in August 219, before that in August 218) we found ourselves in Sera again, considering a November vacation in Egypt for 6 thousand rubles due to the sad events near it from Israel - we decided not to take risks and go to Turkey. Charter flights from our region were already canceled, so we looked at regular flights and booked through Ostrovok. The price for this hotel was quite affordable, the trip cost us 55 thousand for one person, including the flight, accommodation in the Shkatulka building, and the valet from Minvod, plus a taxi to the airport for 35 liras. We arrived at the hotel at 4 p.m., so the check-in was smooth and fast. We used to stay in the Park building before, but this time we stayed in the Club building, a luxurious place indeed, everything in the style of "Sultan, everything for you". We were familiar with the hotel's infrastructure, we walked, sunbathed (luckily the temperature was 23 degrees Celsius), it was too cold for swimming, so we quickly dipped and warmed up in the sun. On the day of departure, it was already 16 degrees and cold. The downside of the hotel was that the pools were icy and the indoor spa was also very cold, not ideal. The food was good, everything was tasty, and the cocktails at the bars were excellent. Melike at the Champagne bar was great, she made us such beautiful cocktails, it was superb! Thanks to the staff, everything was very comfortable and pleasant. We attended a fashion show on November 17, it was very interesting to watch. This hotel always leaves a good impression. There's a Migros nearby, and a bit further Sok and Bim, where we bought Turkish products as souvenirs. The vacation was excellent, especially during the offseason.

I love this hotel, so it is always my priority. I stayed here in February, which was not a fortunate time as the country was in mourning after an earthquake. Therefore, there were no animations, not even background music, but I don't have any complaints about it. However, I would still like to recommend that the hotel lives up to the advertised "ultra all-inclusive" as it is not the case in reality. Please provide kettles in the rooms with a standard set of tea, and at least put shower caps in the bathroom. It would also be nice to have an additional magnifying mirror. I stayed at the Hotel Venice in September, and they didn't have these issues. There seems to be some cost-cutting here, but it is important to meet expectations! I returned to the hotel at 5 PM after a walk and wanted to have a snack, but there was nowhere to do so! The pastries in the bar are only available until 5 PM, and then you have to wait for dinner. It is frustrating to receive such service(( The reception staff are very friendly. By the way, they installed weighing scales near the baggage room, which is a big plus for us. Thank you so much! I managed to get pharyngitis, and luckily the reception has a nurse through whom I could call a doctor using insurance. Thank you very much for the help! There is also a representative from the "Leather and Cashmere" store-factory named Murad, who is very friendly and responsive. I visited their factory and bought a great astrakhan fur coat there; the price matches the quality. I hope my recommendations are taken into consideration by the hotel, and I will continue to come to my favorite hotel💕 By the way, there is a pharmacy, Migros, exchange office, and the Antalya card can be purchased or topped up nearby. You can also visit Ikea; I paid 2 lira for a taxi ride from the hotel.

Good day. We were placed in room 1616 (sixth floor). All rooms in the hotel with even numbers have a sea view. Oh, how we miss the sea in the Ural and Khanty-Mansi regions. Our fantasies play with us ("I will wake up to the sound of the sea, take a shower and have breakfast") dreams. illusions, how wonderful it is. Night. Starting from 1:00. every 25 minutes, a plane will fly low in front of your "Sea view" as they land. The airport is nearby. Until 9:00 am (many tourists are flying to Turkey). Morning. 6:00 am - the muezzin sings the morning prayer (about 15 minutes), even closed balcony doors won't save you. 6:10 am - dogs start howling in rhythm, 6:20 am - the garbage truck arrives. 7:00 am - you can escape for breakfast, and then to the beach, where you can surely fall asleep to the sound of the sea. Under the umbrella, until 11:00 am. 12:00 pm - the airport is nearby, now planes are flying in the opposite direction (HOME. HOME. OOO) a tiny joy takes off from the other side of the hotel (city view). 12:30 pm - LUNCH - you will be greeted by borscht - they learned how to make it - 3.2 points (the base is a rich-tasting beef broth, which gives the soup its aroma and allure) - I repeat - they learned how to make it 3.2 (no meat, diluted with boiling water, no vegetable sauté, no garlic) echoes like an echo in the mountains of the city of Antalya, the taste of meat with finely grated carrots and beets. BE CAREFUL: they put pepper generously - it's everywhere!!!!! After lunch, take a nap in the room until 7:00 PM. Why?? From 7:00 PM, when you step out onto the balcony, you will witness the evening prayer, the shouts of footballers or basketball players (there is a playground for sports nearby), and two more restaurants where weddings, birthdays, and simply a desire for celebration take place. - Maybe we should go to the bar...

We arrived early in the morning, around 7 o'clock, and were checked in to Room 75 in the Park building a couple of hours later. If I had known that the rooms in this building were so shabby and dirty, I would never have stayed in this hotel at all. Everywhere there is dirt, stains, and other people's hair. The hangers and the wardrobe itself were very dirty and sticky, so our things stayed in the suitcase. The bathroom hadn't been cleaned after the previous guests (everything was dirty: the toilet, bathtub, walls, even the door). There was a pile of dust and trash near the bed. The balcony was also dirty, but oh well, it's not really necessary. It's very unpleasant to even be in such a room. We went to change rooms, but there was no availability, even though we were willing to pay to switch. Eventually, we were moved to a room on the 3rd floor. The room was clean and spacious, but there were cockroaches! It's just awful! The hotel itself is very beautiful, with lovely grounds where you want to take photos everywhere. The food is good, with lamb, beef, and fish for lunch. The drinks at the bars are tasty and visually appealing, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. But these kinds of rooms in such a hotel are simply a nightmare! Especially considering that it's not a cheap hotel. It was unpleasant to stay even for a short while, and it spoiled the entire experience.

Arrival in Antalya on the 6th of May. Individual transfer. Check-in at the hotel on the 7th of April, including breakfast. The first room was a family room for two people, but we declined as we didn't need two rooms. Immediately, we found a standard room on the same floor. It was small, but everything was in working order. We were able to change rooms without any additional charges! The hotel is very unique, beautiful, and green. The beach has four locations - a regular one with a good entrance, a children's beach, a pontoon, and a promenade. There are bars and restaurants at every step. The cocktails, alcoholic and non-alcoholic, as well as the milkshakes, were very beautiful and delicious. The pastries and ice cream were superb. The à la carte dining is a separate story! Each restaurant has its own menu - the food is filling, tasty, and beautifully presented. The staff - we have never seen such well-trained and skilled personnel in any other hotel. The young employees work tirelessly, giving their all. They don't ask for tips, but you feel compelled to thank them! Evening entertainment in the form of concerts and discos takes place at a very convenient time, from 1.3 to 23. And for those who want more, there is a disco as well! The jewelry salon is like an Eastern fairy tale, stunningly beautiful! You can just go and admire it. The girls there are very hospitable, they will show and tell you everything about the former casino. In the evening, during dinner on the open terrace, they also entertain with live music. It's very pleasant and not intrusive. We have a lot of great impressions! It's impossible to tell everything, you just need to take the plunge and go!

Upon arrival at the hotel at 1 am, we were immediately checked in, and my daughter and I went to explore the grounds. It simply amazed us with its beauty and cleanliness. This is my fourth time vacationing in Turkey, and this hotel impressed me. Later, we were stopped and offered to visit the Kids Club. And my child fell in love with Emel there. She was with her throughout the whole vacation. They made crafts and drawings, and we also went to the dolphin show. The girls there were so friendly, they did face painting, and the kids felt like they were in a kindergarten. I would take my daughter to the pool, then back to the Kids Club. In the evenings, there was children's entertainment and dancing. My child is very happy. I am also satisfied. The food was excellent, as well as the drinks and the waiters, everyone is smiling. My rating is a definite 5 or 5))))

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

Good day, dear fellow travelers, respected men, and lovely women. Hello, dear. I flew today(!) on April 29, 223nd year from this hotel and decided to write a review right away, to leave my fresh impressions. I'll start a bit further from today. I've been to Turkey 13 times and I know PREMIUM hotels. I won't brag (poor quality), but I wanted to relax, the weather wasn't scary, so I decided to go on vacation once again. I was considering a 5-star hotel, but the accommodation for one person was immediately 5% more expensive. And I chose our hotel. But at the last minute, my mom joined me and the hotel cost immediately decreased (*which was very pleasing) and we booked it... Well, here we finish with the introduction and let's start discussing, evaluating, and analyzing this hotel... Coffee, tea, whiskey, popcorn, did you take? The review is going to be long. And I hope, relevant. Lobby. The hotel impresses with its luxury. Everything shines, the sofas and armchairs are luxurious. The staff immediately help with the suitcases, the receptionists instantly check-in. We were supposed to have a ROH room according to the voucher, and we were ready to pay extra on-site to get a better room, but a nice girl helped us check-in to the main building on the 7th floor. The room faced the street with the main entrance (the main building always faces it, the question is only about the room location). We appreciated this accommodation... Our suitcases were quickly brought to our room. And the journey began... Room. Here I'll immediately say - Dear friends, the rooms in the main building are the BEST!!! You can actually live in them without fear of being blinded by color... They have a noble chocolate-brown color with gold accents... They are spacious and the bathroom is decent. There is a shower kit (shampoo, shower gel, conditioner). (There are no toothbrushes, no toothpaste, let me say it right away - no kettle, no iron, and (don't dream about an ironing board) - also NO). I went to the CLUB building, which is called the "box". Oh no... If you're not a fan of flashy-pinkish-greenish colors, it's not for you. The rooms are tiny, with no corridor, with a bathroom smaller than 4 square meters, and they overlook the "red pool" or the other side. There is a TV with 3 channels (fortune tellers, shopping, TNT) - that's for Russian speakers. Others - are plenty ((((((. There is carpeting, a large balcony. A safe is free. The beds are comfortable... And now the main masterpiece of this hotel comes into play... Cleaning. Here, based on all my experiences, I was beaten... Our room was cleaned at 3 (!) - 4 (!) p.m.... Drum roll... On April 26, the temperature was, mind you, 16 degrees Celsius during the day. Where is everyone at this time? That's right, dear, they're in their rooms... Money is useless there!!!!! The "cleaning, madam" has her own schedule and you are not a calculation factor there... They clean the hallway, but not your room. Throughout our stay, our room was cleaned only once. We are not pigs and

We were on vacation at the end of July! The hotel was honestly disappointing. The food was average, no options for children, and the fruit selection was mediocre. The bar only served Turkish drinks, and even those were of questionable quality. The original drinks were only available for an extra charge, and this is a 5-star hotel? The bar's operating hours were also inconvenient. If one closed, you had to go to another one with fewer choices, and then to a third, and so on until evening, especially when you have kids. Dinner was only served outside in the heat, and you would sit there sweating. There were almost no activities for children, and the hotel grounds were small. It was extremely inconvenient to navigate with a stroller due to stairs and other obstacles. The sidewalks were narrow, making it impossible for people to pass each other. You can read about the rest in other reviews! What outraged us the most was that they allowed gay couples to stay in a family hotel! They openly engaged in sexual activities in front of children, and the hotel staff did nothing about it! They even harassed both the staff and other guests! In a Muslim country, this is disgraceful...

Great hotel! Regarding the accommodation: we arrived around 1 PM and were checked in about an hour later, as soon as the room was ready. We had a small double room in the park building. Some downsides were the lack of hooks to hang towels and robes, and very few power outlets. However, the Wi-Fi in the room was excellent, even better than at the reception. Food: excellent. They had different types of meat and fish, fresh vegetables cooked in various ways (grilled, stewed, hot, cold), and they also served omelettes, porridge, and soup for breakfast. One downside was that there was no watermelon available at the main restaurant for breakfast and lunch, but it was available at the poolside restaurant. Breakfast there starts at 8:30, and it was not very convenient that dinner was served outdoors as it was very hot in the evening in August. There are four à la carte restaurants, where you can go to each one once a week, so there must be a gap of at least 7 days between dining at the same type of restaurant. Everything is included and free of charge. The beach was very enjoyable. It had a pier and a parapet, from which you could descend into the water via a ladder and immediately reach the depth. There was a separate children's beach, which was wave-free due to the presence of rocks allowing water to flow through. The main beach had a comfortable entrance, but it was not shallow, and there were many areas near the pool where you could easily find a sunbed. There were no problems with towels either, and you could change them several times a day: you could take a swim, go to lunch, and then exchange the wet towel for a dry one. The bar served drinks, including alcoholic beverages, from morning till evening. They had peach and tomato juice in pouches, while everything else was diluted concentrate, plus Fanta, soda, cola, and water, which you could take as much as you wanted. Regarding alcohol, it was mostly local, but they made different cocktails. I cannot evaluate the entertainment as I did not use it, but the animators were active and constantly invited guests to participate in activities such as darts, boules, aerobics, yoga, Zumba, water polo, and there was a different show every evening.

Be prepared: On the day of departure, you will need to leave not only your room but the hotel as well by 12 o'clock. Additionally: 1. The staff at reception is very rude, my friend wanted to call a taxi. In response, they shouted at him and insulted him with offensive language. My acquaintances even witnessed a fight... 2. There are flies flying everywhere that bite. They have bitten my child. It's extremely unhygienic. These flies are even on the dishes in the restaurant. 3. The alcohol is of very poor quality, it's disgusting to drink. 4. In the evening, after 12 o'clock, the lights and air conditioners are turned off everywhere. It's terrible... I have never seen anything like this. Moreover, it's impossible to find water anywhere, we had to fill up in advance during dinner. There are bedbugs on the carpets. Flies in the restaurant. There are cockroaches in the room, they are red and huge (my wife got scared). There are not enough staff members, there are queues everywhere. Apparently, that's why they are all irrational...

In 218, our whole family was already vacationing in this hotel and we all liked it. This year, my husband couldn't join us, so I was on vacation with our 15-year-old daughter, which is why we weren't immediately interested in the children's entertainment, and I can't say what its level was, but there were a lot of children :) Believe it or not, but we came to this hotel as if it were our own home, knowing where everything was located. I won't describe the territory, decoration, luxury of the hotel, or the quality of the food. I think people write about those things and it's already visible in the photos :) But even though we had been to the hotel before, we discovered it from a new perspective. Yes, the hotel is in Antalya itself, so you can take a bus and go somewhere. But there is so much free (!) service for tourists in the hotel. They don't hide it, it's written about it, but they also don't urge you to use it, probably because it's free :) Therefore, in my review, I want to write about what is available in the hotel and what is worth using. 1. My daughter is an athlete, and we went to the hotel's fitness club, where there are a variety of exercise machines, fitness mats, dumbbells, barbells, etc. So, for those who don't want to gain weight from the abundance of delicious food, bring your sports attire and sneakers :) 2. The hamam, sauna, steam room, showers, jacuzzi, and pool next to them are free for hotel guests. 3. There is a champagne bar, also free for hotel guests. 4. Opposite the red pool, there is a bar that serves milkshakes, bubble tea, ice cream frappes, etc. That is, something non-traditional that is not found in all Turkish hotels. When the bar closes, another bar with a similar selection opens in the building across from the shops located on the hotel grounds. You can always contact either the reception or the guest relations, where they will tell you and advise you on where and what is located, how to independently get to Antalya, etc. 5. Once, you can visit the à la carte restaurants. Approach the guest relations and she will schedule it for you at a time convenient for you. The food, of course, is average, but maybe someone will like it :)

We were looking for a good hotel with the possibility to go shopping by ourselves. It took us 25-5 minutes by public transport to reach the nearest shopping centers. We went there often. In addition to enjoying the seaside and delicious food, we also had great communication and service from the staff. Thanks to Melika from the Champagne bar, Jasmine and Melise from the Lobby bar for the tasty cocktails and warm attitude. We stayed in the Elegance building on the 6th floor with a beautiful view of the sea and waterfall. The room was cleaned and towels were changed daily. The bar was restocked with water and non-alcoholic drinks every day. The interior of the room and the hotel as a whole were designed in a unified "Eastern fairytale" style. I didn't pay much attention to the cracks on the tiles or the worn-out furniture. Combined with the hospitality of the staff, it created the impression that we were in a sultan's palace. Regarding the planes and dogs, if we closed the balcony and slept with the air conditioner on, we could hardly hear them. There was internet throughout the hotel premises.

We are at the hotel for the third time. Therefore, a full review has already been written and I just want to write about the changes in the hotel. We arrived early in the morning. We had a private transfer. Two families, including us, were driving in a Mercedes minibus and within 2 minutes, we were already at the hotel. We had reserved a PROMO ROH room, but thanks to the helpful staff, they gave us a room in the CLUB building for which we are very grateful. In our opinion, the hotel has become even better. There are more bars now and the sun loungers have new mattresses. Near the pool with seawater (although this time it was not seawater, but regular water), there are loungers with soft mattresses, like a bed with pillows. There was no fancy animation with the famous hotel staff members, etc. Different guests came and organized cool shows and disco parties. Internet is available throughout the hotel premises. The food is not gourmet, but everything is very tasty and abundant. The service staff is beyond praise. Everything is simply great. The rooms in the CLUB building are in need of renovation, however. We realized that among budget hotels, this one is the best and we won't be changing or looking for anything else. We will happily return to our beloved SERU!

We were there in mid-April (from 12.4.23 to 21.4.23), arrived at the hotel early in the morning, and were checked-in 15 minutes later. We asked to be placed on a higher floor... and voila... we were on the 9th floor. Everything was clean, beautiful, and cozy. The staff was friendly and ready to assist with any questions. The food was excellent, with a lot of fish (grilled trout), seafood, beef, chicken, and always two to three types of soups. There was also plenty of greens, vegetables, and fruits. I think we couldn't try all the abundance of dishes presented on the tables in just one day. There was live music during lunchtime and in the lobby. The hotel had a disco from 22:00 to 24:00.

Next to Sery 2 little shops with excursions. You can buy something there. However, there are some kind of tourist antalyacards. The price is a little more expensive than usual. I don't know how it works there, or if you can top it up. But you can reach the center and top it up at a vending machine if needed.

There are no tourist maps. They just sell you regular maps at a higher price. There are terminals at the stops where you can buy a cardboard map for a couple of trips or a refillable plastic one.

No, I noticed that when I connected to the terminal, I was charged more than others. Like, the usual fare was 15, but for me it was 17.5 +-.

From the hotel to the left there is a pharmacy, and behind it is a currency exchange, where you can also buy a map.

What's wrong with it? Everything there is local, and it's of terrible quality. They say the beer is okay, but honestly, I don't understand what can be appealing about this hotel..? There are plenty of others that are much more beautiful and interesting.

Can you please tell me if the hotel concept includes restocking the minibar? Is the beach clean and are there enough sunbeds for everyone? Are there long queues in the restaurant and a sense of "first come, first served"?

The beach was clean, there were no queues, and the bar was restocked every day. I recommend it, we enjoyed the hotel. It's been a week since we came back... 😔 We even miss it.
