My family and I are frequent guests of this hotel. The beach is clean, and there are pools and water slides. The staff is friendly and always ready to help. There are plenty of entertainment programs and games during the day and in the evening. The animation is good, and there is always something to do. Special thanks to Victoria for the best aqua aerobics! The evening shows are always diverse, and there are discos with various music afterwards. The drinks at the bar are always delicious! The hotel and room cleaning are also top-notch, with the mini-bar being restocked and towels changed every day. In short, everything is great!

We stayed at this hotel with my spouse and 16-year-old son from June 3rd to June 14th. The tour operator was Coral Travel. We had a great flight with Turkish Airlines, despite a slight delay. However, things started to get chaotic on the bus with the Egyptian excursions group. It was mandatory to have a meeting with the guide, who had to register our vouchers with the police, otherwise we couldn't leave the hotel. You had to attend the meeting with printed insurance policies. The guide would provide you with the contact numbers to call. They couldn't figure it out themselves. There were even people running around trying to print their insurance policies. I wouldn't recommend going to tour agencies, it's dangerous. Don't buy anything, as your insurance will be voided. You will be abandoned unless they sell you into slavery. They just treat their tourists as idiots. In the end, we went on three excursions with local tour agencies. Everything was great. We even noticed tourists from hotel guides on the same excursions, but we paid only $2 while they paid $45. Diving was $6 in the hotel and $25 on the street. And it continued in the same style. A lot has been written about the hotel, so I'll try to keep it short. Location. The place is amazing. The views are superb. The nearby village of Beldibi is nothing special. It reminded us of Yalta or Anapa from the 90s. Shops, tour agencies, etc. Don't expect anything interesting during a walk. 1. Room 2429 with a sea side view. 90% mountains and 10% sea view. 4th floor, million dollar view. The room was clean, although the bathroom could use some renovation, but everything worked and was tidy. The cleaning staff did a good job, although not overly enthusiastic. The only downside was the nearby cheap hotel, Aleios Beach, which had no territory, just a beach with a few umbrellas and no entertainment except for burnt whiskey and aqua aerobics in a pool more like a puddle, and evening dances to loud music. The music was so loud that even closed windows couldn't help. It sounded like having an orchestra in your room. Luckily, we were mostly out for lunch, shows, or just walking during that time. To be fair, everything quieted down by 11 pm. And the crowd there was just loud drunk people peeing in the pool, standing on the edge, and so on. It's a shame for

I am writing a review for the first time, although I have been to Turkey a total of 7 times. We have stayed in different hotels and cities. Therefore, when we chose a tour this year, based on the rave reviews, our choice was made in favor of the Akka Antedon Hotel. First of all, I want to warn you that we are not the kind of people who will nitpick and crawl under the bed in search of dust, but for the first time in my life, I was looking forward to leaving this hotel. Let me start with the room, we had room 133, a terrible room, the soundproofing was non-existent as we could hear the mosque, but we were prepared for that. However, we were not prepared for the fact that every passing "neighbor" would be heard so clearly that you would startle at night as if they were standing next to your bed, or that the carpets in the general hall would be vacuumed at 2 am, with a noise in the wall/behind the wall resembling rushing water through pipes. Room cleaning was okay on the first day, but after that, they simply neglected your room. Of course, after addressing the reception, they would come to clean, for example, during your children's naptime. Sometimes we had to catch the maid in the corridor and ask for at least the towels to be replaced. There is no hot water in the sink, only in the shower, which, by the way, broke three times during our vacation. Beach. During our vacation, the weather slightly deteriorated and strong winds picked up, causing the canopies to be torn off. In the morning, ropes were scattered all over the beach, and they remained there for the rest of the week. My daughter and I managed to collect a few ourselves, but there were definitely more scattered ropes than we could handle. Also, pay attention to the wooden platforms, nails stick out, the boards have deteriorated due to age, and the nails are sticking out. My husband and I injured our feet. Food. It was okay overall, we are not picky eaters, but if you want to try something from the grill area, be prepared to wait in line for 4 minutes. Personally, for me, with two children, it felt like a long time. The fish is not tasty. Out of 11 days, the fish was only delicious once. Bars. No complaints, the staff did a great job. Children's animation - terrible. Even after all of the above, we tried to find the positives of this hotel, but on the day of our departure, they asked us to leave a deposit - our passport, for using beach towels, as we were checking out at 5 pm. By the way, the towels often turned out to be dirty and torn, but please excuse me. What year are we living in, 23 or 23?!! And yes, I would like to warn moms with children about the ROTAVIRUS department, with subsequent streptoderma. We were not the only ones (3 families were staying near us, and the same thing happened to them), and we didn't bring it with us. My daughter fell ill on the 8th day. So, in conclusion: the only huge plus of this hotel is its territory!!!! Otherwise, it is clear that the management is very stingy with its guests!

We stayed at this hotel in the first half of July 223. Here are our main impressions: 1. Service - you could say it was impeccable! The waiters in the restaurant were attentive, quickly clearing dishes and bringing drinks. My niece accidentally broke a bottle of Coke by the pool, and within 2 minutes it was already cleaned up. There is plenty of staff, but they work quickly and somehow go unnoticed. Waiters on roller skates are available on the beach and along the poolside, though there aren't many, it is convenient. 2. The pool is large. There is a depth of 14cm, and there are also shallower areas, as well as a children's pool with slides. Although the sunbeds are usually occupied, it is still possible to find a spot. The water is clean, with no chlorine, so you can comfortably open your eyes underwater. The pools themselves are well maintained - in the morning, when you come out, all the sunbeds are neatly lined up, cleaned up. 3. The hotel has a water park. There are several good slides, which is a big plus for the hotel. The kids loved it, and even the adults had a great time sliding. 4. Food - very diverse. While we were there, there was always grilled fish (sea bass, dorado, trout), always tender and delicious lamb, various types of beef and chicken, crabs, quails, kebabs, fruits, desserts - a wide selection and everything is delicious. You definitely won't go hungry. Despite the large number of people, due to the size of the restaurant, there were practically no queues. Most of the food is served behind glass, which we actually liked more, nobody rummages around with their hands, they put as much as you need. 5. Rooms - maybe some of them could use updating, but overall, they are comfortable. The bed linen is good and changed almost every day, the pillows are comfortable, and the water pressure in the bathroom is good. 6. Entertainment - we went to the evening entertainment a few times. What can I say, the invited performers met the expected level at 4... During the day, there are various activities by the pool (aqua aerobics, yoga, etc.). 7. The sea and the beach. There were always enough sunbeds on the beach, we never had to reserve them in advance. The beach is clean, with pebbles and sand. There are well-equipped entry points into the sea, and after a couple of days, I even stopped wearing swimming shoes to the beach. You can enter and exit from the pier. Overall, it is a hotel that we would like to return to...

We are on vacation with our family from July 1st to July 2nd. This is our fourth time staying at this hotel. Everything is great, the staff is friendly and responsive, and the entertainment is top-notch. The food is delicious with a wide selection. There is a great variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks (the selection has grown compared to previous years). We really liked the service, room cleaning, and overall atmosphere. We highly recommend this hotel because you will have a lot of fun, great experiences, and be satisfied for a long time!! Igor, Vika, Ali, Salha, Aysun, Ozlem, Emre, Onur are the best entertainers!! Thank them so much for the entertainment and for a wonderful time!!!)

We arrived in July for 2 days. This is our second time coming here. The hotel is simply wonderful and matches the description on the website. The service is excellent, with a very friendly and attentive staff who are always ready to help and respond to any request. The rooms are cozy with picturesque views of the mountains, sea, or pool. Daily housekeeping is provided. The food is fantastic, with a wide selection of dishes from both European and national cuisines, as well as separate options for fruits and vegetables. The hotel is conveniently located, with the pool and sea in close proximity to each other and the main building. There are always enough seats available in the restaurants and bars, which is very pleasing. There are also plenty of sun loungers for all guests on the beach. The hotel grounds offer places to walk, relax on hammocks, and observe nature. There are also numerous shops nearby where you can take a stroll after dinner. Free and delicious alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails are available to enjoy on the beach and in the hotel building. Additionally, there is a spa center with a wide range of services and a gym. Children and teenagers have their own playrooms, allowing parents to relax as well. Every day, there is a program for adults, including various games in the pool, on the grass, or activities such as pilates, yoga, and aqua aerobics. Every evening, there is an exciting show or party on the pier. We only have positive emotions and a lot of impressions. I highly recommend this hotel without any doubts!

We arrived on July 7th at 1pm, had lunch, received our room cards, and our room is nice and spacious. The balcony has an amazing view of the mountains - it's absolutely beautiful. The hotel grounds are huge and surrounded by greenery. The sea is crystal clear and clean, although the entrance is rocky, so we had to wear special slippers. However, many people were walking barefoot. There are also special platforms for entering the sea. The food is excellent and plentiful - there's an abundance of fruits, ice cream, and delicious desserts. A huge thank you to the kids' entertainment team - our child was engaged in interesting games every day. And a special thanks to the adult entertainment team - they were very friendly and cheerful. They organized great contests, aqua aerobics, yoga, Zumba, volleyball, darts, and entertainment for every taste. The evening shows were fantastic - we attended every night and were thrilled. Akka, thank you for your hospitality - we will miss you. We will definitely come back again!

We stayed at Akka Atendon from June 25th to July 5th this year. We spent a long time carefully choosing a hotel, as we were planning a trip with children. The hotel ended up being quite expensive, and we were well aware of its obvious drawbacks (lack of repairs). I will start by saying that we are not demanding tourists and have not stayed in luxury hotels in Turkey, but this hotel does not match the price-quality ratio. 1. The hotel is in need of repairs. Urgently! We stayed in a duplex family room: worn-out furniture, no light on the balcony, mediocre cleaning (even though we left money hoping for better cleaning), cleaning was done at inconvenient times (when we returned from the beach in the afternoon and the children needed to rest. I tried to arrange with the cleaners for a different time), but they shrugged and said they didn't understand any languages other than Turkish. A couple of days after check-in, the air conditioner broke and we had to call a technician. In the evenings, during peak hours when all the guests return to their rooms and get ready for dinner, the hot water flows poorly, and one evening there was no hot water at all. 2. The entrance to the sea is good and suitable for children on one side, but on the other side, there are pebbles, and you can't enter without coral. A couple of times, there was also trash in the sea. Perhaps this was due to the fact that there is a river near the hotel with small boats moored at the pier. 3. The beach towels were stained and had holes. 4. The common areas of the hotel need repairs. There are old carpets in the corridors of the main building, which attract nothing but bugs. In the main restaurant, there is old tableware. It seems that they haven't changed the cutlery since the hotel opened. Sometimes we encountered poorly washed utensils and plates. Regarding the main restaurant, I must add: we repeatedly saw cockroaches running around, the staff couldn't handle the workload, they couldn't clear the tables in time, and not to mention bringing drinks. During lunch and dinner, there weren't enough free tables. It created a strong impression that they prioritize serving foreigners. There are no issues with the variety of food options; the selection was completely satisfactory. 5. The kids' club and animation were fine, no complaints. The adult animation was unobtrusive. Our room was located in the main building, away from the discos, so we couldn't hear them much. The discos themselves end relatively early, and the hotel is quiet by midnight. 7. The selection of alcohol was more than satisfactory, and the bar staff in the lobby, at the beach, and near the pool were efficient. 8. The reception staff were indifferent and not customer-oriented. We had sent a request for early check-in through our tour agent before our arrival, and we were willing to pay extra for it, but we received a refusal with the words "Wait until 2 pm." Besides, they denied extending our room or moving us to another room. 9. Towards the end of our stay, announcements were hung on the doorknobs of the rooms about disinfection against cockroaches, which once again confirmed the presence of unsanitary conditions in the hotel. We called guest relations, and they said they would simply come to our room and spray chemicals on our belongings. Naturally, we refused to have unknown chemicals sprayed on our belongings. We didn't want to risk getting poisoned by chemicals.

We were on vacation with our family, just the three of us, from June 24th to July 1st. We flew with Turkish Airlines on an overnight flight from Moscow. Our tour operator was Pegas. The flight was excellent and we arrived at the hotel comfortably on a transfer that took about an hour. We were greeted in the usual manner, collected our luggage, filled out a form, and went for breakfast. Check-in was at 2pm. The hotel was small and compact with lots of fir trees and beautiful large pinecones. There were plenty of seagulls and the view of the mountains was breathtaking. During our stay, about 4% of the guests were Russian, while the rest were foreigners, as far as we could tell. The beach and the pool always had plenty of free spots to lounge. We mostly stayed on the beach, only going to the pool occasionally because of our child. The entrance to the sea had large pebbles, which was a bit uncomfortable, but it kept the water clean and there were a lot of fish swimming near the shore. The pier was nice, but it would have been nice to have a bar on it. The beach was cleaned perfectly, and by 7am, the sand was leveled, the lounge chairs were put away, and there was no trash. Someone mentioned the trash cans not being cleared, but I can say that when my child left his ice cream on a table and went to the restroom for a minute, the cleaner had already cleared it up. The toilets near the sea and the pools were constantly cleaned, and they were perfectly clean with no smell or dirt. Regarding our room, it was a standard room on the first floor above the water playground. It was spacious, and the sun was out in the first half of the day when we were at the beach. Everything worked well - the hairdryer was good and the air conditioning provided enough coolness for the whole night, without being noisy. We didn't experience any disturbance from our neighbors. The cleaning was satisfactory, but we didn't spend much time in the room. We would go for a nap after lunch and then get ready for dinner in the evening. Once, they forgot to remove the "sleeping child" sign, so our room wasn't cleaned. In the evening, we called the room service and asked if they could clean it later. The service was excellent. If you write them an email with any remarks or requests, they immediately respond and solve the problems. It was my husband's birthday on June 25th, so there was supposed to be a complimentary surprise in our room. We came back to the room during lunchtime and it was empty. The same thing happened in the evening at 6pm. I sent an email, and they immediately brought everything. However, we usually forgot to remove the "sleeping child" sign, so they couldn't bring the surprise to our room. On June 27th, the Kurban Bayram holiday began, and we were lucky. The staff was very kind and everyone was smiling. There was an abundance of beef and lamb, different steaks on the grill, skewered meat, and they simply fed us with meat. We didn't have chicken or turkey after the beef steaks, but there was duck one time. They gave us any piece of meat that we asked for. I wanted a leg of duck and they brought me a new duck from the turning spit and cut the part that I wanted with a smile. They had various types of fish - seabass, perch, grilled salmon, and smoked fish. We would take them to the beach with beers. There was plenty of food, and the waiters were working tirelessly. There were always available tables, and they offered you a choice of wine immediately. Unfortunately, they didn't have champagne in the main dining area. As for some of the closed dishes, we actually liked that. I agree with previous reviews that the hotel's website should mention that it's not a full buffet and tour operators should inform guests about it when choosing a hotel. But the plus side was that there were no mixed spoons in salads, no one touched the fruits with their hands, and there were no queues. They served you quickly. Some vegetables, fruits, and some hot dishes were covered, but the grill outside was fully accessible. There were various seafood options - small and large shrimp, mussels, oysters, crabs - everything was plentiful and there were never any queues for them. They served three types of beer in glasses and offered refried and corn chips, as well as a variety of nuts. My husband drank Chivas and tequila, and I had wine and champagne, and we were satisfied with everything. At around 5 pm, there was a huge buffet near the snack bar with food from around the world. They had so much food, starting from their local sweets and ending with basterma. They served corn, popcorn, ice cream, their own flatbreads, and grilled hamburgers and kebabs. There was plenty of food. We liked the hotel. It wasn't very fancy or pretentious, but the staff tried their best to please everyone and they worked tirelessly.

I will start by saying that we have a large family, 2 adults and 3 children aged 6, 7, and 9. We stayed from June 23, 223 to July 6, 223 (13 nights!!!) in a family room with a garden view. The price of the package included VIP transfer from the airport to the hotel and back, economy class flight on Yamal Airlines, for approximately 635 rubles, considering the early booking price in early May!!! 1. The food was standard for breakfast, pancakes, yogurts, waffles, eggs, omelets, vegetables. There were plates already with mini salads, half an egg, tomatoes, cucumbers, greens, sliced cheeses, and freshly squeezed orange juice. For lunch, there were three or four types of meat, fish, two types of soups, and sometimes borscht. I would rate the dinners as 5+, as there was not always a wide selection of main dishes, but often there was lamb, beef, chicken, fish, and seafood. Alcoholic beverages and cocktails were also available, plus there were 18 varieties of ice cream near the snack bar and ice cream balls in the pastry shop. 2. The sea has a better entrance with coral, and there are two staircases from the pier, making it very convenient to enter the sea. The water is clean, but I have already mentioned that the chalets that are worth the money need to be moved to the left (if you look at the sea!!!) 3. The entertainment shows were beautiful, but we are not fans. 4. I give the service a 4+, as if you give tips at the bar, you are treated well, but without tips, they might ignore you. Housekeeping deserves a 3, as the rooms should be cleaned better. There were stained glasses, dust, and dirty floors. 5. The rooms need renovation, everything works, but I had to close the shower cabin door creatively. The furniture is worn out and needs repair, especially the outdated carpet in the main restaurant. When I entered the restaurant for the first time, it felt like I was in a hotel from the USSR. 6. The territory is green, with lots of pine trees, palms, shrubs, and flowers, which is pleasant. 7. Personally, I got the impression that the reception and guest relation staff were more helpful and assisted in finding lost belongings and making sure the room was cleaned at a specific time, etc. However, when checking-in, I requested a corner family room, and the staff blatantly lied, saying they were the same size as all the other rooms when they were not. I told him I would take a video of it, but he ran away. 8. I want to emphasize again that this hotel is a good value for the reasonable price it offers!!!! I agree that there are queues in the restaurant during peak hours, as in all large hotels during the season. The room cleaning deserves a 3, as I would like the windows to be clean, the floor to be properly washed, toiletries to be replenished, and the dirt on the doors to be swept away, etc. I give the food a 5-star rating, although there were queues during peak hours to get food behind the glass, it was not critical. I never had more than one trip to get food behind the glass, and I understood that the staff might get momentarily distracted. However, I would appreciate it if the waiters cleared the tables faster when they were full of used dishes. The animation on the pier opposite the family rooms was trashy, especially the dancing strippers, which I consider to be too vulgar. There were also some persistent individuals on the beach, but they quickly left after I told them I wanted to relax. Not all the staff smiled in the bars, but tips could help with that. The rooms may be worn out, but everything works, there is no mold, and the plumbing is clean. I would suggest that the hotel staff smile more, show more involvement and politeness, and the hotel would immediately look better despite its flaws. Once again, as someone else wrote, for a reasonable price, you can and should come here!!! Compare prices, if AKKA is cheaper by 2-25% compared to, for example, Voyage Sorgun, that's great!!! Take advantage of prices, exchange rates, and remember that everything gets more expensive every year, with the Euro exchange rate last year being 8 rubles on average, and this year it is 9, and so on... Yes, the hotel needs to work on room cleanliness and service, that's a fact!!!

We have stayed at this hotel for the third time, and in the Akka network for the fifth time. We always wanted to come back here again and again. But this year, to put it mildly, we were shocked. How the hotel has deteriorated in less than a year. Our tour agent warned us that the reviews of tourists about this hotel are very mixed now, but we didn't believe it. The first thing that immediately caught our eye was the staff. It used to be the hallmark of the Akka network. Everyone was friendly, smiling, and helpful. Throughout our stay, we had a strong impression that they were happy to have us here. This year, 9% of the staff were newcomers. They looked exhausted, with gloomy faces, and completely indifferent. Half of them pretended not to understand English ((( and no one approached us during lunch or dinner. Unless you catch a waiter and guide them to your table. And even then, there's no guarantee that they will bring you what you requested. We went to the bar and got our own juices, and found out where we could independently get utensils and napkins. There were five of us, and in order to have space for dessert or fruits after a meal, we stacked our dirty plates on top of each other and pushed them to the edge of the table. Thankfully, we didn't have to wash the dishes ourselves. That's how we managed almost every day. The hotel staff serve the food. Last year, it didn't bother us at all because everything was quick, efficient, and with a smile. But this year, the situation was completely different: a queue of visitors and two staff members behind the glass, turned away from everyone, gossiping and laughing, ignoring everyone. The same situation occurred at the bars and snack bars. Room cleaning - only in name. It's not really cleaning, just taking out the trash and replacing towels. After four days of our stay, dust started rolling around the floor in clubs ( In the room, everything was constantly breaking. Whether it's a wardrobe door, toilet flush, faucet, or television. Apparently, no one does any checks before check-in. This year, the beach was very annoying with touts. Like annoying flies. Water activities, leather products, silver, massage, etc. And each person approached us 2-3 times a day. And not just offering, but starting to persuade and hassle us. It felt like we were not on the beach of a 5-star hotel, but in a crowded city. The beach cleaning during the day was very poor. There were heaps of leftover plates under the sun, attracting a bunch of wasps and noisy seagulls. Overflowing trash bins were also not emptied. Occasionally, heaps of garbage washed ashore. It's understandable that this is not the hotel's fault. But can't they assign someone to pick up at least the largest pieces of trash? Vacationers themselves had to pick up and throw away plastic bags, plastic bottles, etc. onto the shore. The quality of food also dropped compared to previous years. Yes, everything in Turkey has become more expensive by about 4 percent. Inflation. But the price of the tour package increased as well. The hotel started cutting corners on everything. It would have been somewhat understandable if the price remained the same. But paying almost 9k for a tour for five people and receiving a very weak five-star experience is very frustrating. We used to leave with tears in our eyes. This year, we ran to the transfer to the airport, "throwing our flip-flops" away. There is nothing premium left at the hotel except for the price. We will definitely never return here again.

I suppose that your perception of the hotel will directly depend on the types of hotels you are used to staying at in Turkey. I hope this review will be helpful and help you avoid any disappointing experiences during your vacation. If you have stayed at hotels like Vozh or Calista Luxury, for example, many things may puzzle you. Let me start with the food and restaurants separately. I read the information before booking, and the hotel management announced in March that the buffet restaurants were fully open. But the tables were closed again shortly after. I read a lot of correspondence between guests and the management after that, explaining their allegedly more hygienic use of the restaurants with this system. Dear management! Enter the restaurant at 7:30 in the evening and see what's going on there: 1. First, you will have to complete a quest called "Find a table." 2. All claims about no queues are complete nonsense. Sometimes it’s just easier to turn around and leave than to wait. Even if there is no queue, it is quite possible that there will be a girl in front of you who will take eight snacks and discuss each one in detail with the employee serving her. Meanwhile, all you needed was just one forkful of salad. As for the super politeness of the workers, it's a debatable statement. Some staff members, including the reception area, cause a lot of confusion. Specifically about the restaurant: you either get a chaotic pile on your plate, or you have to ask for every piece and they give it to you with a face like they are giving it from their own refrigerator. In general, the organization gets a score of 2 out of 10. And yes! This is NOT A FULL BUFFET, as the hotel management was asked to notify during the booking process. The food itself is decent. You won't go hungry. But everything on the grill is overcooked. Naturally, don't expect any fancy presentation, they just pile it up on plates. You have to take several and neatly arrange the food yourself. By the way, the restaurant is the most worn-out place. A 2-year-old carpet is a highlight. 2. Accommodation: family room. Soundproofing - zero! The howling mosque is half of the problem, at least you know that in advance, but the eternal evening music near the family building and disco on Tuesdays at the pier are quite a surprise. Especially for those traveling with infants. My parents live in the standard room, which is better. The room is spacious enough, maybe they got lucky with the location, and the soundproofing is good. If you are with a baby and want to find a quiet place to push a stroller during the day, it will be another quest. The belief that you cannot hear the music on the beach and can relax there is shattered by the realization that the tents only provide about 5% shade, and there are always burnt bodies lying there. It's strange that they don't understand why! 3. Cleaning is average, no comments. Just towel replacement. General observations: The hotel seems convenient for families with children aged 4 and above, but not so much for infants. I can't understand why they can't provide a proper mattress for the baby crib. Is it too expensive? The cat house on the premises is nothing special. Cats are wonderful, of course, and children find them interesting and enjoyable. But there is a noticeable odor, which may be fine for some people, but I'm not a fan of that "background." The mix of guests is a topic of its own. There are a lot of loud Kazakhs, and it feels like they've been given vouchers to a factory sanatorium. It's a mystery why they have to talk to each other from a distance of 15 meters. Regarding the "special beauty of the sea" that some people write about, it seems like those who haven't seen the seas of Cyprus, Croatia, or Greece. The sea is just a sea, clean and warm. The mountains, however, are great! On the positives: The territory is nice, beautiful, and well-maintained. The water park is excellent, and the kids' club has a nice maze. Overall conclusion: The standards are better in the standard rooms in terms of soundproofing and service. Having closed tables is just a COVID measure and a tool for creating queues and inconvenience. The hotel cannot handle full occupancy in any aspect. Perhaps it will be good to visit during the off-season and for a reasonable price. I know they heat the large pool and water park. I'm happy for the commentators who think "everything is great." My review is not for you, and I had no intention of getting into arguments. It's great if someone is comfortable. My desire was to write about the nuances that I personally noticed, hoping it will help others avoid some disappointments.

We came here for the second time, and it's even better than before! The service is top-notch, any problem is solved in minutes. You can do it through the app or call 6666 if you need assistance in any language. I especially want to mention the amazing team of animators, thank you Salih and Ozlem for always being attentive. We never got bored, and they guaranteed a positive atmosphere for everyone! Yes, it rained almost every day, but the fantastic shows and karaoke made up for it, they were superb! Respect to the chefs and everyone in the restaurants, the food was on a high level without a doubt. I fully join all the positive reviews and highly recommend it. We will definitely come back again in the fall!

Both my son and I loved everything! Starting from the reception and ending with the room cleaning. The gastrulation was beyond praise. The food was delicious and very diverse. The beach restaurant offers a very tasty and varied menu. The ice cream was delicious. The coffee was tasty everywhere (except in the restaurant). The cocktails at the beach bar and pool bar were delicious. The entertainment was extremely unobtrusive, which I love. Silence, tranquility, and tranquility. A very beautiful view of the mountains. A wonderful warm (in April) water park with attentive staff. Warm and clean pool. Excursions are offered from the hotel to the canyon during the off-season, and you can go fishing on the pier. We will definitely come back!

I'll be honest, I expected more, but overall it's okay. Maybe it's a matter of personal taste, we're all different after all. Regarding the check-in, despite my letter with requests, we were placed in what was available. Since we arrived at night, I didn't argue and came back in the morning. I won't go into details, but thanks to the staff, especially Railya (she's the best of the guest relation girls!!!), who truly solves and helps with any questions, rather than just nodding and doing nothing! Alpek and Boris helped us pick a suitable room, thanks to them for that! As for the room, the furniture and plumbing are worn out, but the mattresses and pillows are wonderful, it's a pleasure to sleep on them. The cleaning service is lacking, they only clean for show. The floors were only washed upon request, and I won't even mention the dust. It's very disappointing to see almost worn-out towels in the rooms. As for the food, there's nothing to complain about, even my picky son found something to eat. Everything is tasty, diverse, and never runs out. The mini club is just great, the girls are excellent with the children, and my son loved going there. As for the territory, it's considered to be green... well, if you compare it to hotels in Alanya. Yes, there are trees, but not that many and not as big (maybe I'm being picky). The biggest drawback for me is the huge number of people. I came in early April, hoping that there would be very few people, but I didn't think about the heated pools that attract everyone. It's probably like an anthill during the summer. This hotel is suitable for family vacations, there are lots of kids, it might not be as interesting for others. Will I come back to this hotel? Maybe, but I'm not sure.

I liked everything at the hotel overall - especially the service, it was top-notch. The staff is friendly, almost everyone speaks Russian and understands what you're asking for perfectly. If they don't understand, they will ask their colleagues for help. The room is cleaned every day, and the mini bar is restocked daily. They have any kind of alcohol you want. The cocktails are made generously with alcohol. The food includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus a snack restaurant, a coffee house, packaged ice cream, pastries, and ice cream in waffle cones. The entertainment is good. There are slides for both kids and adults. There is a heated and non-heated pool. In April, the sea is cold, so everyone hangs out by the pool unless the weather permits. Unfortunately, we were unlucky. We had rain for 4 out of the 8 days, so we had to entertain ourselves as best we could. The spa saved us - hammam, steam room, pool. There is a gym for those who want it, with simple equipment - bicycles, treadmills, weights, mats, leg, arm, and back machines. It's sufficient. Shisha is available from 5 pm every day. Shisha is great! The tobacco is the best. I recommend it for smokers.

First of all, I want to express my gratitude to the hotel staff and administration - to everyone who makes our stay comfortable and unforgettable. Thank you! You are doing a great job, keep it up! Akka Antedon is a luxurious hotel that does everything to ensure tourists have a comfortable stay. So, my 16-year-old son and I stayed at this hotel from April 25th to May 2nd. We have been to Turkey 4 times, and I can say that this hotel is the best in its price category, the best hotel we have ever been to. The territory is huge and well-planned, with a large heated pool, a heated aqua park, a heated children's aqua park, and a kids' club. The stunning views and locations, mountains, pine trees, and the sea - the air here is simply magical. The beach is a 3-minute walk from the room, it is large and well-equipped with sun loungers, umbrellas, showers, and a large pier with sun loungers and a shower. The food is delicious and diverse - they have everything. And everything is very tasty. Freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast. The waiters are great, flying around the hall, dirty plates disappear from the tables at the speed of light! There are refrigerators with drinks in glass bottles on the hotel grounds! Cola, Sprite, Fanta, water, cold tea. The rooms have a complimentary minibar that is replenished daily. The rooms are cozy and cleaned every day, the cleaning is excellent, they provide shampoos, gels, hair conditioners, and soap. Snow-white bed linen and towels. Bathrobes, slippers, and a kettle in the room. There is even a needle and thread of different colors, a sponge, and a spoon for shoes. The in-room safe is free. Fast and free Wi-Fi that catches everywhere, even on the beach and the pier! It works flawlessly without interruptions! There is a snack bar, a Gezlime house, bars, a pastry shop, and a coffee shop - you definitely won't go hungry! Yoga, darts, bocce ball, water aerobics, tennis, soccer, volleyball. Any questions are resolved within minutes by calling 6666 or through the hotel chat. We arrived at the hotel at 8 am, and by 1 pm we were already checked in. I couldn't find any negatives, we are very satisfied with our vacation and hope to return to this hotel again. Our vacation was successful, although the weather was a bit disappointing, but we knew that the weather in spring is still unstable. We swam in the sea, in the pools, got a tan, so everything is good, we are happy. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I will be happy to answer.

The author of the review 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.

It's possible, if it's cheap... After arriving at 14:00, we ignored the letter from Top Hotels and were checked into whatever was available according to the voucher. Our friends were checked into a room with a mountain view, while we had paid for a sea view. However, we were initially given a room above the children's playground and immediately requested a change. In the end, we were placed in the farthest, "quiet" room with a view of a small river and a slice of the sea. Before coming to Turkey, we downloaded the Akka hotel application from Google Play and registered in advance, uploading our passports. This helped us check-in quickly. The app also provided information about the schedule of bars, restaurants, and other facilities. Our first impression upon entering the hotel was that everything seemed outdated. After all, the hotel is only 2 years old. Don't expect a grand lobby here. Everything is simple and appropriate for the age of the hotel. At the entrance, there are coolers with different types of lemonade. There are always 1-2 staff members at the reception desk. A "bellboy" who speaks decent Russian escorts you to your room. Don't forget to tip him, as he will be the one carrying your luggage if you need to move. I should note that the quietest rooms with a view of the river are farthest from the mosque. In May, we slept with the balcony open until 3 am. It's advisable to close it around 4-5 am, or else you will be awakened by the morning prayer call. There were no mosquitoes in May! Our friends stayed in the same building but with a mountain view, and they couldn't sleep because of the chicken coop below. Yes...I've stayed in Rixos with thundering shows until 11 pm before, but this was the first time I encountered a hotel where there were so many factors that prevented a good night's sleep. These factors included the mosque, a school, and the chicken coop. Forget about the villas - they are best avoided as they are only 2 meters away from the mosque. The Wi-Fi in the hotel is excellent and can be accessed everywhere from the hotel entrance to the edge of the sea. No bracelets are worn in the hotel. However, they still issue cards for towels in the traditional way. If you lose the card, you will be charged 2 euros. The towel service starts at 8 am, and you can change towels as often as you like - the staff is friendly. Room 2344 is located in the main building and has a view of the river and the sea. It is on the third floor and turned out to be the best room. It is more spacious and has both a shower and a bathtub. The room is outdated, but everything was functioning well. They pushed two beds together for me and my child, so we had a single bed. The bedding was crisp, white, and pleasant. The pillows were comfortable. There is a sofa, a writing desk, a tea set, a kettle, glasses, and a bottle opener. Each adult has a bathrobe hanging in the wardrobe, but if you have a child, one bathrobe will be taken away. Even slippers are provided. The safe is easy to use and intuitive. It's best not to use the air conditioning because you will end up breathing in "2-year-old dirt" - this is the hotel's biggest downside. Coming to mountainous Kemer and breathing in filth. The bathroom has everything you need - a hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel. The wardrobe is spacious, with enough hangers. The minibar is well-stocked with soft drinks, juices, water, beer, and even salty snacks and biscuits. The housekeeping staff does a good job, but remember to hide the tips. At first, the bartenders collect all the tips, so none of it reaches the housekeepers. We hid the tips under the pillow or in the bathroom for the housekeeper. Our housekeeper appreciated our thoughtfulness and changed our bed linen every two days, as well as left us little toiletry bottles. If the cleaning schedule is not convenient for you, you can inform guest relations, and they will adjust the cleaning time to suit your needs. All rooms have balconies with dangerous railings, so if you are traveling with children aged 2-5, ask for a lower room. There were a couple of Russian channels on the TV. The hotel grounds are not impressive, but they are sufficient for a morning or pre-dinner stroll. I didn't like that you have to walk through the swimming pools to get anywhere. There are two fridges with free access on the premises, stocked with soft drinks, Ayran, mineral water, and regular water. An opener is also provided. There are sun clocks on the territory, and every day the date is displayed on the flower pots. The little house with cats is a favorite spot for kids. There are many pools and enough sunbeds. We chose this hotel because it had a heated children's pool in mid-May. If Alva Donna had a heated pool, we would have chosen that hotel instead. The lobby bar gives mixed impressions - one day they make delicious cocktails, and the next day they serve mediocre drinks. Tipping doesn't make a difference. But if you're not satisfied, they will remake it for you. Champagne was the only thing that saved us. We didn't have time to visit the spa center - it was too hot, and we didn't even get a chance to see it. There are many bars on the premises where they can make cocktails and coffee. After 7 pm, all drinks are only served in glass containers. If you've just arrived, they will only give you a bottle of Efes beer at the bar, but if you ask, they will open a bottle of Miller for you. The water park is simply wonderful - it had everything we needed. Both our 4-year-old and us adults enjoyed it, and it was heated in May. However, it closes for lunch, so it might be difficult to get a double tube at the peak season. The pools are large, but in May, the adult pool was barely warm - it was at its limit, and after three minutes, you'd start freezing. The children's pool, on the other hand, Cafeteria: it's great! Open from 9 am, extensive coffee menu from cold to hot. In May, there were queues, I can't imagine what it's like during the peak season. The coffee is excellent! Pastry shop: located behind the tea room, unlimited access to pastries and ice cream cones. Restaurants and bars: the main restaurant wasn't impressive - once you enter, you can only leave through the lobby(( The food won't leave you hungry, but by the third day, it gets depressing. Almost the same menu every day. Bony grilled fish. Side dishes. Tasteless meat and poultry. And the worst part is that 8% of the food is served to you through glass. If you want just one olive, they give you a mountain of them. It's incredibly inconvenient. Well, come on - COVID is over, all hotels have switched to self-service. And yes! Because of this, you don't want to stand in lines and wait extra time. The fruit selection here is great, plentiful and diverse. Tables are set with white napkins. Plates and utensils are clean - just once I encountered a glass with lipstick. For dinner and lunch, they only serve beer and wine: red, white, and rosé. Disgusting! Powdered! Even if it's from bottles. I had to get cocktails from the lobby bar for dinner and bring them with me. Children can be fed, there's even a children's restaurant. They had jarred baby food, but the assortment decreased every day. Our child refused to eat their baby food. What I liked the most was the beach snack bar - located between the tea room and the bar. It opens at 12. They serve you from a menu. It's delicious. Caesar salad, grilled patties, seasonal salad, blue cheese pizza, pasta burger. It's a lifesaver for those who need to put their child to bed early for a nap. Kids club: they seem to have activities for children all day. Inside, there's a large climbing maze - I've never seen anything like it in any other hotel, the kids loved it. Every evening at 2-3, there's a mini disco on stage. Terrible! Every day, they play 3 minutes of incomprehensible, uninteresting, unpopular songs in the same order. We would come 5 minutes before the end of the mini disco to dance to Sokol bachey - Sokol vira. Overall, the mini disco was disappointing. Entertainment: we saw people playing darts. But overall, the entertainment was weak. There were no adult activities. Shows in the evenings. We attended one with aliens - it was enjoyable, very atmospheric. Shopping: when you leave the hotel, there's a bus stop, take bus number 7 - it's a 4-minute ride to Kemer, although in May, there wasn't much to buy, everything was expensive and uninteresting. We took a taxi to Dino Park in Goynuk, the entrance fee for children over 4 years old was 19 rubles - expensive. But it was interesting, we enjoyed it and took lots of pictures. Guests: mostly Russians, a few Germans, Poles, and Romanians. All the guests were decent and pleasant, there were no "Tagil" girls with fake lips. This hotel is suitable for families during the off-season. And yes! My tour agent has a note about this hotel - you can go if it's cheap)))) I fully agree)) The staff, who are praised in the reviews, honestly, not many people felt like leaving tips. In the hot season, when you need to use the air conditioning, I categorically do not recommend this hotel!!! Because the hotel is 2 years old - it has an old air conditioning system, old and smelly, it's unlikely that anyone has cleaned it. When I turned on the air conditioner, I became afraid that during the hot season, people will be forced to breathe this smelly air. Thank you for reading until the end))

We stayed at a hotel from March 24th to April 1st, 223. It was a family vacation. We had a great flight with Turkish Airlines, no delays. The tour operator was Intourist and we were very satisfied. The transfer from the airport was quick, in small groups. The hotel representative was excellent, always available and very responsible. We registered in advance on the hotel website and were checked in right away, before the scheduled time. The room was bright, everything worked, it was spacious with a view of the river, the sea, and the mountains. We were all pleased. The food was good, although it took some time to get used to the service and find our way around the restaurant, but after that, everything went smoothly. The waiters were responsible and attentive. We left tips. The hotel grounds were fantastic, with a heated pool and great water slides. The sauna and Turkish bath were functional, and the indoor pool was nice. The gym was a bit old, but it still worked and we used it. There was a nice café and pastry shop on-site and a movie theater that was open. In the evenings, there was live music in the lobby. The reading room, decorated in red, was also open and very beautiful. The entertainment was quite low-key, but it was still early in the season. There was a city park and promenade near the hotel, which was perfect for walks. The suburban transport stop was not far, so we traveled to Antalya on our own. It was easy to get around, everything was accessible and interesting. We also went on a tour to Tysis Canyon organized by Intourist, and it was incredibly picturesque. We enjoyed our vacation, and the hotel was great. We are considering coming back again in the future. The grounds were especially beautiful.

Happy return to Antedon I stayed at this hotel with my family in the years 21-211, and now, twelve years later, I am here again! Over the years, the hotel has only gotten better and has not lost an ounce of its elegance - its "Antedonist" vibe. During these years, I have stayed in many hotels in many countries, but I wanted to come back here. And now, the circle is complete. But let's discuss everything in order. Spring in Turkey this year turned out to be particularly cold, as everyone is saying - from locals to resort guests. I usually enjoy the pool, but this time I really wanted the sea. The beach and the pier (which opened on May 12th) are equipped with plenty of sun loungers. In the Kemer region, the beaches are mainly pebbly, but as someone who grew up accustomed to the stones in Sochi, this fact does not bother me. On both sides of the pier, there are equipped ramps for entering the sea. But even without them, the entry is gentle, and it's easy to walk as your feet don't sink into the pebbles. I also liked the sturdy wooden pathways between the rows of sun loungers, which lead to the shower stalls, which is very convenient when leaving the beach. Right by the central entrance, there are refrigerators with refreshing drinks: water (carbonated and non-carbonated), lemonade (cola, fanta, etc.), packaged juices, canned cold tea Fuisti, ayran - the same selection that is present in the minibar in the room, only without beer. Opposite the refrigerators, there is a small counter where you can have a snack with fruits and hot dogs in the afternoon. By the way, access to food in the hotel is around the clock: starting from "midnight soups" (whose range has significantly expanded over the years) and ending with a la carte restaurants (which there are five of in the hotel). The delicious gözleme (Turkish pastries with filling), pastries, waffles, ice cream (soft and packaged), fruits, chips, nachos, and nuts in the bars - there is plenty, it's filling, and it's delicious. The rich selection of coffee at Café Preto (to the right of the pool bar) will satisfy even the most demanding coffee lover. On the other side of the bar, there is a tea gazebo where you will be offered traditional Turkish tea, and in the evening, you can order a hookah (2$/€). By the way, in all the hotel's souvenir shops, as well as in the spa center, prices are in dollars and euros. The exchange rate is only calculated when paying for services in the hotel and in duty-free shops at the airport. There are only COVID restrictions in the main restaurant, and even then - partially. The display counters still have appetizers, herbs, vegetables, sauces, hot dishes prepared in the kitchen, sweets, and fruits. I can't say that I had any problems with this. There is a lot of staff at the buffet, they understand both Russian and English. They always smile, and if you thank them sincerely, they will always wish you a good appetite. The whole diet table, soups, bread, as well as dishes prepared directly in the dining hall (pancakes, omelettes, börek, pizzas), as well as the barbecue outside, are readily available. I regret not knowing the name of the young waiter who worked from May 8th to 12th in the right fenced part of the restaurant. He was efficient, attentive, and truly meteoric. I would also like to mention the waiters Ramazan and Seyfi, who work in the same area of the restaurant. The latter, Seyfi, serves guests in the French a la carte restaurant and is kinder than Parisian garçons. In general, the hotel staff surpasses all praise. It is clear that the younger staff members lack experience, but the senior colleagues help and support them, which gives a sense of continuity. As I learned from my conversation with the bartender from the lobby bar, many people have worked here for years. A family hotel is not only for guests but also for employees - it's always a good thing and cannot help but delight. The first time I was in Antedon, it was during the May holidays as well, and thirteen years ago, just like now, there were many young families with small children from the Baltics resting here. There are plenty of entertainment options for children, the main ones being the heated pools and water slides. I myself went down a couple of slides, fortunately, without queues, and I But let's talk about the positives: The idea of roller-skating waiters along the poolside is wonderful! It allows for avoiding the traditional queues at the bars. The newly opened Japanese restaurant is fabulous. I have never tasted better sushi rolls. Seriously, I didn't expect it: so filling and fresh that even the sea bass, which I don't usually eat, turned out to be delicious. My friend and I even went to the chef to thank him. However, in our opinion, the menu needs some adjustments because after 16 large rolls, there is no room for anything hot (just a suggestion). Thank you, girl handing out towels at the beach, teşekkür ederim, your smile made my day! The space-themed party held on May 9th was out of this world! If you don't go to Ibiza, Ibiza comes to you. The spa area is always magical. Just like the hands of the massage therapist Jenny, whom I entrusted with my body. "Jenny, please, just relax. No strong pressure, no pain, I want to rest." - "No problem, madam!" The souvenir shop vendor is very kind. By the way, the prices there are exactly the same as in the shops in town, so for the especially lazy ones, there is no need to go anywhere. The most delicious cocktails are available in almost all the bars. However, the one closer to the beach is exceptional. I indulged in my favorite Aperol Spritz throughout my vacation, while my friend enjoyed strawberry mojitos. The desserts! OMG, your pastry chef is simply divine! A big thank you to the girls from guest relations. Especially, Feride. Her Russian is wonderful, and her responsiveness and attentiveness are beyond praise. And a special thanks to Tanechka Mosyukova - the CRM manager of Akka hotels, for supporting my desire to return to Antedon all these years, and I have not regretted it for a second. Thank you to the entire staff for the vacation! Thank you, Akka! Thank you, Turkey! Çok teşekkürler! I will definitely come back to you, but now with my family for sure.

We stayed at the hotel in April 223. We arrived early in the morning, immediately went to have breakfast, and were checked in at around 1 o'clock. We got a gorgeous room with a mountain view. The room had everything we needed, and upon request, they provided us with children's bathrobes. All our questions were resolved quickly and efficiently. The hotel grounds are huge, with many bars and cafes. Throughout the property, there are refrigerators with non-alcoholic beverages. The hotel also has its own mini water park. The outdoor pools are heated. There is a sauna, indoor pool, and jacuzzi. There is evening entertainment, mini disco, live music, and karaoke. During the day, there are various games and activities such as yoga and volleyball. The bar has a wide selection of imported drinks, both draft and bottled. The water is served in bottles. The wine is good. The waiters run very fast. Special attention is given to the kids club. A huge thank you to Alina and Anastasia for taking care of our daughter. She will miss it. The kids club operates seasonally from 1 pm to 5:30 pm. During the off-season, there is a lunch break. Children are dropped off and picked up under supervision. The kids club is very spacious, with rooms for watching cartoons, ball pits, and mazes. They also do many crafts. The entire hotel staff is very polite and friendly. I definitely recommend this hotel for a family vacation.

Our vacation happened unexpectedly, we didn't plan it in advance. When we started looking at tour packages, the sky-high prices were definitely a concern. Initially, we considered other hotels, but since we had already vacationed in Turkey at this time of year, we knew that the sea was still cold and a heated pool was a must. The list of hotels narrowed down immediately. I had read about Akku before, so I prioritized it. After reading a bunch of reviews and comparing all the pros and cons, we still chose it, placing heated pools and an aqua park as the main advantages at the moment, as well as good feedback on the food. My main fear was the worn-out rooms, which was mentioned in almost every review. But in our case, it turned out to be insignificant. There were five of us (3 adults + 2 children), and our room was a double room in the main building. We chose a room overlooking the surroundings when booking and it turned out to have a nice view: of the mountains, the sea, and the school under the windows. The location was excellent, except for the early morning prayers from the nearby mosque blaring through the speaker (around 5 am). Only guests in a different part of the hotel, facing the opposite side, may not hear these songs. The family block in a separate building definitely hears this alarm clock. Keep that in mind. As for the room, I didn't find it to be super old. Yes, the room decoration and design were outdated, but it seemed to have been done very well at the time, with no complaints about the furniture, textiles, and plumbing. Everything worked perfectly, with no issues. Everything was clean, without stains or holes. The mattress on the bed was very comfortable, and my aching back was pleased. Regarding housekeeping, since there were many of us and someone was often in the room, the cleaning wasn't always done on time. But with a call to the administrator, everything was quickly cleaned at the agreed time. The bed linen was changed every other day, and towels were changed daily. Although there was a sign saying, "If you want to change a towel, put it in the basket." The minibar was regularly restocked. As for soundproofing in the room, we didn't hear anything from the neighboring rooms, but we could hear voices from the corridor when guests walked by, mostly children. Due to the carpet on the floor in the corridor, the sound of the cleaning carts was barely noticeable. They were very, very quiet. You can't hear them! You only see them when you walk down the corridor. They don't shout, they don't make noise with their carts (as we've experienced many times in Thailand, for example). They just sincerely smile and greet you when you meet them. I already mentioned the sound from the mosque above. Moving on to the hotel itself. The interior of the hotel is very laconic, with few interior details, simple and modest. Only the lobby bar and the library hint at some Ottoman luxury that has been touched by time. But everything is clean. The territory. This is what disappointed me a bit. Based on reviews, I expected something more. We had previously stayed at another hotel in this region, and the territory there impressed me much more (the hotel was of a lower level). I felt there was a lack of greenery here, which may sound strange. There were few pine trees and few flowers. Very, very few. Maybe we just vacationed in a season when they had not yet bloomed. And I really wanted to show my younger child oranges on the trees, but we didn't see them here either. The territory itself is quite compact, and I, once again, expected more. But everything was clean and tidy everywhere. There is an enclosure with cats near the aqua park, so sometimes there is a corresponding smell coming from it. There are plenty of pools, or rather one large pool that stretches across the territory. Every evening we watched them being thoroughly cleaned. The heated pools were very popular for obvious reasons, and it was usually difficult to find available sun loungers nearby. The children's pool was always packed. The slides in the aqua park operated at specific times, and our oldest child practically "lived" there :-) Restaurant. Oh, I can only say good things about the food! It was very delicious! Yes, there may not have been a very wide selection of dishes, but you could always find something to choose from, and whatever you chose was bound to be delicious! Sometimes you stand there in front of the choices, wondering what to pick because everything looks so tasty! And there wasn't enough room in our stomachs to try everything :-) The beef tongue was incredibly delicious! I had never eaten anything like it before, and I will always remember it! There was grilled fish every day, meat, chicken, shrimp, crabs, and red fish. In the morning, there was a selection of dairy porridges, but my child and I only ate oatmeal. Soups were available at lunchtime. They might not have looked very appetizing, but after trying them, I realized they were delicious! Onion soup, spinach soup, and others. In terms of desserts, there weren't as many, and we didn't try them all. But we found the tastiest ones for ourselves. Unfortunately, they didn't have any names, so I can't specify which ones. There was plenty of strawberries, delicious whipped cream, chocolate, and powdered sugar. The berries varied in sweetness; one plate might have a very sweet and flavorful berry, while the next might be bland. And many other dishes that I can't describe them all. Also, about the restaurant: some dishes were behind glass. Some people don't like this, while others prefer it. In my opinion, it's neater, as everything looks tidier than when dozens of hands dig into the same pot with one spoon. There were queues for dishes with free access as well. The wine was not tasty. Perhaps like in most Turkish hotels in general. After trying it a couple of times, we decided that beer was better. And you could enjoy a delicious cocktail in the bar. The outdoor bars were always crowded, and the drinks were tasty. However, in the lobby bar, there was always calm and peace. Another note about the restaurant: the waiters there were very quick and efficient, always smiling. And the chef was always in the dining room, which also speaks to its level. Now, my main disappointment: the kids' club. I didn't expect such a letdown. It is advertised as a family-friendly hotel, perfect for families with children, with everything for kids, and lots of kids around (which is true, there were a lot of children, mostly preschool-aged). So we went to the kids' club. It was closed, so we played on the playground outside. It was a very modest playground with three swings, a very tired slide, and movable rings for basketball. There were some other items that seemed to be fountains or misters in the heat. The sandbox was the best part. Our three-year-old practically lived in it on the first day. There were plenty of sand toys there. Through the windows, I could see there was a maze inside. When the doors of the club opened, we entered... The maze itself was not bad in terms of ladders and running spaces for children, and there was also a small pool with balls, but it looked so worn-out! Really, really worn-out! Like a shabby old man. Maybe kids don't care, but it immediately made me feel sad. Okay, let's move on and see, but there wasn't much to see. One small room with a plastic toy kitchen, a couple of rocking horses (which were also very tired), a couple of plastic houses, and large LEGO-like blocks. That's all! There were no more toys. There were several tables for creative activities. A stack of coloring pages, a basket of colored pencils, a couple of board games, and five puzzles, which were also very worn-out, like everything else. There was another room, which I assume was also for creative activities since there were tables, but no one went there, and another room for watching cartoons. I saw a cartoon playing there one evening but during the day, it was closed. The overall appearance of the kids' room and playground filled me with sadness. Since our child was only 3 years old, he could only be in the club under parental supervision. So my husband and I spent quite a lot of time there, taking turns: assembling those miserable 5 puzzles a hundred times a day and standing or sitting on guard in the maze. I observed the children who were there without their parents, and some were just blatantly bored. The female animators were sitting somewhere on a chair, looking around or at their phones. They only "came alive" and called out at certain times: "Guys, let's go here!" I didn't participate in the club activities personally, but my husband and child were there a couple of times, making pizza and some crown. Our child enjoyed it. We also participated in a family festival during a couple of days, where they made cookies outdoors, which also excited my son. I also found the mini disco to be somewhat poorly organized, maybe it was just the start of the season and the staff hadn't quite synced, but it didn't feel quite right. Although there were so many children participating. In general, my feelings were quite mixed. I didn't like the kids' club at all. Considering that this is a family hotel with a high number of children, more attention should be paid to it: the quality of play equipment, toys, educational materials, all of which could use an update. It wouldn't cost much to buy a dozen new puzzles or fix a couple of additional benches on the play area or at least repair the slide. But despite my disappointment in the club, the child enjoyed going there. Perhaps our views didn't align with his :-) and with most others, which is why the hotel management doesn't rush to transform the game area even a little... In the evenings, you could also rent a battery-powered car near the aqua park and take your child for 1 minute rides for a fee, or jump on a very simple trampoline for 15 minutes for a fee. I consider this a rip-off, as in our neighborhood park, this fun costs way less. This is about the youngest child. The older one is 11 and he spent most of his time at the water park, and when it closed, he would get bored. There were significantly fewer children his age. The junior club had specific hours and almost everything there was paid. PS for sure. So, sometimes he would wander into the computer room near the kids' club and play there if he managed to get a free computer. It also operated at specific hours. One of his main entertainments was going to the bar and trying non-alcoholic cocktails. They also played table tennis occasionally. Another thing I didn't like was the "hustlers" at the SPA and leather shop. People came to relax, and several times a day these intrusive people would bother them: So, have you decided to come to us? Come to us! We're waiting for you! Guys, if I want, I'll come. I don't need to be told about it once a day. Sometimes we just changed our route if we saw them on our way... I will mention again that there are a lot of guests with children at the hotel. It seemed to me that there were many families with two or more children. Many babies in strollers (there are no barriers for strollers, by the way, everything is well thought out in this regard). Many foreigners, most of them with children, from their speech, we concluded that they were mainly representatives of the northern part of Europe, there were also Chinese. Elderly people. I just didn't notice any young people, I think they would get bored here. Outside the hotel's territory, there are shops and a pharmacy. You can go for a walk there. But nothing special. Nearby, in the direction of Antalya, there is a park, but we never made it there. In conclusion, I want to say that I had higher expectations from the hotel. Yes, the heated pools and water park saved our vacation, otherwise we would have gotten bored. In the season when the sea warms up, of course, most of the time will be spent there. The sea is beautiful, I love pebbles more than sand. But during our visit, we only dipped our feet. It was too cold. Although some people were swimming. Many write that they return to this hotel, but I wouldn't. Overall, the vacation was successful. Considering the negatives that I highlighted for myself, I would give the hotel a 4. Would I recommend it to someone? Maybe, but considering the nuances that didn't appeal to me.

Good day to everyone. We stayed at Akke ANTEON from 18.3.23 to 27.3.23 with our children. The road from the airport took about 5 minutes, and we were the first hotel. We arrived at the hotel around 7pm and were given our rooms immediately, as requested, next to each other. There were two families with children, and we were on the first floor with a view of the mountains. The room was clean and the plumbing worked well. There were some issues with the lights; the switch in the bathroom didn't work, but it was quickly fixed. The hotel service was really pleasant and all issues were resolved promptly, I would even say super quick :) They deserve a special thanks for that. The room cleaning was standard: towels were changed, rubbish was thrown out, and the floor was wiped. The bathroom amenities (gel, shampoo, soap, body lotion, hair conditioner) were replenished with each cleaning, and by the end of our vacation we had accumulated at least 2 bottles of each. The minibar had water, soda, mineral water, and milkshakes. At 9am, there would be a knock on the door and it was the minibar attendant (we called him the "refiller"), asking what we needed and delivering it before rolling his cart further down the corridor. The rooms were not new, but they were clean and it was clear that there was recent cosmetic repairs done. For me, it's always important that the room is clean and the plumbing works, and I usually turn a blind eye to everything else. After all, we come on vacation to relax and enjoy nature, not look for damaged furniture, etc. The main restaurant was very decent in terms of size. The food was also standard for a 5-star hotel in winter, everything was delicious, and there was always something for everyone: beef, chicken, turkey, and fish were practically always available. They also had a grill, which was open in the last 2 days of our vacation. As for side dishes, there were different variations of pasta, vegetables, rice, and potatoes, catering to different tastes and preferences. There weren't many fruits, but it's understandable for March: apples, pears, oranges, bananas, grapefruits, and pomegranates. The absence of strawberries was a bit disappointing, but we went to the store and bought some. The waiters were always smiling and very friendly. The first couple of days, the hotel was half full, and then some Iranians arrived, and it affected the speed of service in the restaurant, but it wasn't critical. We could always find a free table, even if there were no utensils on it, the waiters quickly fixed that. Only the lobby bar in the main building was open until 1am. There was a disco on the lower ground floor, which was open until 2am. The bar near the heated pool seemed to be open until 6pm. The pomegranate wine was very tasty, I recommend trying it, I really liked it. They also had blackberry, strawberry, and blueberry wines, as well as red, white, and rosé wines. And of course, the standard bar selection: beer, vodka (by the way, the Iranians drank a cocktail called "ersh" - vodka with beer), brut champagne, gin, whiskey, Baileys, rakı, and some other options. If you like mojitos, they make them with vodka in the winter concept. There was a fast food place nearby from 1.30pm to 4pm: french fries, burgers, and pizza. Ice cream and sweets were also available there. We went to Preto café nearby, where they made amazing cappuccinos. The pools were great for both children and adults. The heated pool and the water park were absolutely fantastic. As for the sea, of course, in March it was refreshing and there weren't many people wanting to swim. But we did swim, I even convinced my daughter to join me, it was an indescribable experience. We couldn't stay in the water for too long, but a 5-10 minute swim was definitely possible. You get used to it, and you don't even want to leave. We were lucky with the weather, it was sunny for 6 days, and a couple of days had temperatures up to 34 degrees in the sun. There was wind, but it was more noticeable near the sea, the area itself was calm. The hotel had a large territory where you could take a walk, breathe in the fresh air, and enjoy the stunning mountains. It's probably great here in the summer, but it's not a cheap pleasure. However, for the winter concept in the spring, it's perfect. I can confidently recommend this hotel for families with children or for couples looking for a peaceful vacation. Young people might find it a bit dull, although if you're in a big group, there would be plenty to do. A big thank you to the entire AKKA team for an unforgettable vacation and a great mood! P.S. If the prices are not too high next March, we will definitely come back.

We were on vacation with our family from the end of July to the beginning of August. The hotel is wonderful, this is already our second time here. We were greeted wonderfully, at the reception Boris offered us a room with a sea view on the 4th floor for free, even though we had a mountain view. The food is diverse. All kinds of meat, seafood, there is so much of everything. No queues, imported alcohol. The hotel is calm, family-friendly. The staff is polite. The rooms are cleaned every day. There are shows in the evenings for both children and adults. There is a hookah lounge, a polite and pleasant hookah master makes hookahs to suit any taste. I recommend this hotel to everyone. We hope to come again.

I would like to express my gratitude to the massage therapist Ferhat (in the photo below his picture)! He did a wonderful therapeutic massage. We also went for a peeling treatment with him, which was a separate bliss. After the procedures, they accommodate you in a relaxation room, offer tea, and apply a face mask. The spa area has a swimming pool, a children's pool, a jacuzzi, a Turkish bath, and a sauna. Outside, there are several heated pools - one for children and one for adults, as well as a cold pool. I don't even know which water is colder - in the outdoor pool or in the sea. After the sauna, we went to the cold pool and back. We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxation! Thanks to the hotel staff!

We stayed at the hotel from 14-21/3/23. It's a family-friendly hotel with a heated pool and water park. There are various entertainment options for both kids and adults. They also have an indoor pool, jacuzzi with sauna and steam room. The spa complex offers excellent massages, particularly by Ferhat (therapeutic massage). We also tried a peeling procedure and were thrilled with the results. They even gave us a complimentary facial mask. The hotel grounds are picturesque. Sometimes we left our child in the game room while we went hiking in the mountains. Counterfeits are made every day. Most hotels close for the winter, but AKKA remains open. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the hotel was superb!

We are currently staying at the hotel. I completely agree with the previous positive reviews about the hotel. The grounds The food The room cleaning The sea The nature It's all excellent. But there is one "BUT"!!! Check-in! We paid for a room with a side sea view. I posted a photo of the view from the balcony. The red triangle indicates the side sea view. If you stand on tiptoes)) Below is the restaurant. From 7 in the morning until ten in the evening. The sound of dishes and cutlery. I asked to change the room. And that's when our suffering began! When my husband said that we paid extra for the side sea view to the tour operator, the receptionist claimed that he didn't receive any additional payment. And he started offering even worse rooms. My husband is elderly. After a long flight, we had to walk and look at other rooms. Then they offered to stay in this room, and then move to another one, but after 5 days. And for this, we had to go to another receptionist the next day because this one didn't fix the reservation. After all the visits, we, already tired, agreed to room 1225, which was originally given to us. In short, the work of the receptionists ruined the overall impression of the hotel. Oh, and also... The internet is weak (well, we didn't come for that) The sea is not suitable for children. You can swim either from the pier Or enter via the rocks Or through the metal bridge covered in seaweed and very slippery.

All the pros and cons about the text. First of all, I would like to note that no one introduced the hotel concept, meaning no brochures were handed out indicating what and where things are located and their working hours. Only after some time did we see a small schedule in the elevator in English. The hotel is located at the foot of the mountain, which is very beautiful, but there is a downside. The sun sets behind the mountain one hour earlier compared to other towns, which means that there is one hour less of beach time here. The internet is good throughout the hotel and on the beach. The lobby is huge and luxurious with plenty of sofas and seating areas. The scale is impressive, and there are also separate halls everywhere. The hotel is not new, and certain areas need repairs. For example, the cash registers in the bathrooms are swollen, and the mirrors need to be replaced, among other things. The elevators are set up unclearly, and it always takes a long time to wait. If it weren't for the stroller and children, I would have used the stairs, which I did when they were not with me. Check-in was quick. Our room was number 232, which, according to our standards, is on the 4th floor. The standard room for 4 people is a bit tight, but not critical. We had a small balcony, and we had a wonderful view of the mountains, the neighboring hotel, and the sea (we booked a standard room with a ground view). We left the stroller in the hallway; otherwise, there would be no passage. This is the second hotel out of all our trips that had a crib ready in the room without us having to ask and wait for it. The room is not new but quite pleasant, and most importantly, everything worked properly, and the mini-bar was restocked. The towels and bed linen were all clean and white. The cleaning service was the worst out of all our trips. I understand that cleaning in the rooms is relative everywhere, but it shouldn't be to this extent. It's a shame for a hotel of this level! Throughout the 11 days, they never wiped the corner of the table where we kept tea, coffee, biscuits, and the kettle. The crumbs that our children spilled on the first day remained there for our entire vacation (I was expecting them to clean it, but it never happened). I periodically wiped the table and bedside tables myself with damp wipes since after the cleaning service, the horizontal surfaces without any personal belongings were left untouched. The garbage remained under the beds, bedside tables, and table for seven days, and there was no need to bend down to see it; it was visible from everywhere. Moreover, the cleaning lady intentionally came when we were in the room, even if it was only for 15 minutes the whole day. A couple of times, we asked her to come back in 15 minutes, she pretended to understand but never came back. We always try to maintain cleanliness in the room ourselves, put all our things in their respective places so that nothing is left lying around, and it looks neat. But the last few days, there was a different cleaning lady, and the cleaning was slightly better. It was impossible to sleep in the room from 9 in the morning until 11 in the evening because the neighboring hotel's music was pounding so loudly. So, we had a disco in our room every day, even with the balcony closed. Those who lived on the other side of the hotel complained about noise coming from the utility block, and also about the daily morning prayer at 5 am (there was a small mosque literally a 2-minute walk from the hotel). By the way, they called us and asked how our stay at the hotel was, but when my husband started talking, they didn't even listen and hung up. Also, note that there is no direct beautiful panoramic view of the sea from this hotel. Only a part of it can be seen above the treetops (the hotel is not even visible from the pier). The food in the hotel is presented in a large variety and is very good. Everyone will find something to their taste: a variety of meats, fish, cheeses, sausages, vegetables, fruits, greens, desserts, ice cream, olives, jams - everything is available at all meal times. Every other evening, and sometimes every evening, they served crabs, shrimps, scallops, oysters, salmon steaks, and sometimes several types of seafood at once. Personally, all the food was very tasty, beautiful, and appetizing for me. However, my husband encountered poorly cooked kebabs and tasteless donuts a couple of times. Overall, the food here deserves a score of 1 out of 1. As for the drawbacks regarding the food, I would like to mention two things. First, the juice they serve for breakfast, which is supposed to be orange juice, is actually heavily diluted with water. Second, a lot of food is behind glass, and the chefs serve it. They serve quickly, and there are no queues. You just need to ask for three tomatoes, two cucumbers, a little bit of this, and so on. But the downside is that they serve a lot, giving the impression that if they distribute everything quickly, their workday will end. They put so much red fish that it is enough to satisfy one's hunger, but what about trying the other dishes? All the pastries and cakes are large, and there is no way to take a small piece. So, there are two options: either don't try anything or fill your plate, take a few bites, and leave with a full plate of food. The waiters work diligently, bringing the drinks and quickly clearing the table. I once came for dinner 1 minute before closing, and all the food was still there in full variety. I managed to serve myself and eat peacefully without anyone mentioning that the restaurant was already closed. At the entrance to the main restaurant, there is a small separate children's dining area. Most BARS start working from 9 am and 1 am. I would like to mention that the alcohol in the hotel is good, they pour as much as you want, the cocktails are delicious, especially the "Queens" cocktail. They also offer packaged juices, corn and potato chips, as well as nuts. The bartenders are quick and cheerful guys, there is even a guy who delivers drinks on roller skates. On the premises, there are 2 refrigerators with water, juices, beer, kefir, and other refreshing drinks, so there are no queues at the bar. We also didn't notice many heavy drinkers, maybe because the hotel is not cheap, and there are not many young people, or maybe because the school year has started and the main visitors are families with children under 7 years old or 4+. There was a situation when my husband ordered a cocktail for himself and juice for the children while we were sitting in the hotel lobby near the bar. 3 waiters took the order, but after waiting for 1 minute, they left without serving anything - it was very unpleasant. The hotel grounds are large, clean, very beautiful, and green, all arranged in a very rational and harmonious way. The entrance to the hotel is stunningly beautiful. There are many different shrubs, coniferous trees, oranges, and thuja trees, it feels like being in a garden. Along the entire waterfront, there is a palm promenade, which is a pleasure to walk on. By the way, you can easily use a

Hello! My family and I arrived at the hotel around 1 am. We were offered breakfast and by 1:30 am we were already checked in (which immediately won us over). The food is excellent. We have different tastes in our family: my husband can't do without meat and delicious side dishes; I don't eat meat (but I'm picky about fish), and vegetables and cheese are important to me; our son is picky when it comes to choosing sweets, so we appreciated all the offered food from every angle. We also liked the themed dinners. The coffee in the café is so good that you can write poetry about it. The pool was heated, so we swam every day and the water was warm. The water park is also heated. No complaints there. The staff is one of the hotel's treasures! The waiters, bartenders, and support staff are all amazing! The only downside is the adult entertainment. It's unclear. Completely. The animators show no enthusiasm, they just walk around with a vacant look. As if their job is a burden to them. We saw the children's mini disco, the girls were amazing and you could tell that the kids adore them. Usually, we don't return to the same hotel twice, but Akka has left the warmest feelings in our hearts. I think it's the only hotel we will return to.

We stayed at the hotel from February 25th to March 2nd. We were with children. I would definitely recommend the hotel for a vacation with children during the winter. They have heated children's pools and a decent water park. There is also a children's table. We didn't visit the kids' club, but I spoke to a girl about my child's birthday, she was friendly and the children were around her. Usually, they congratulate birthday boys and girls on Fridays, but we had already left by that time. They congratulated my son separately at the disco and gave him balloons - modestly, but still nice. There is a nice playground in the shade. As mentioned in previous reviews, the hotel is a bit old, but they try to maintain what they have. The rooms and plumbing are a bit worn out. The cleaning service is not very thorough. However, the towels were replaced promptly. The food personally satisfied us, there was always plenty of it at any time. The daytime entertainment during the offseason is weak. However, the evenings were fun with live music, karaoke, quizzes, etc. The beach is simply a matter of preference - it is stony, not comfortable for kids unless they wear special footwear. The sea water is invigorating, but my husband went for a swim and enjoyed it. If you have good weather, it can be a great winter vacation! The pools are a paradise for children. Overall, I definitely recommend the hotel for a reasonable price. However, during the high season, I consider the price to be too high.

Our vacation (12.3-18.3.223) at Akka Antedon Hotel was simply wonderful, it is definitely the place you want to come back to. It is an amazing hotel with excellent service where you feel comfortable. The staff is very friendly and polite, ready to help with any question. The service is highly commendable, they respond to requests instantly, thank you for such attentiveness to the guests. Restaurant/Bar: Special thanks to the chefs, all the dishes are incredibly delicious, you can see that they put their heart into it. The variety of food choices is impressive. As a fish lover, it was very important for me to have a variety of fish during our week of vacation, there were types of fish such as salmon, dorado, sea bass, mackerel, trout, tuna, and so on. I would also like to mention the pastry, grill, and hot appetizer chefs. Everything was very tasty! The waiters are very attentive, friendly, and polite, they don't make you wait. The bartenders make great cocktails, I really liked the sweet sixteen cocktail. The selection of alcohol is also extensive, even in the winter concept. Room: The reception staff is accommodating, we were offered a choice of three rooms and we chose one with a beautiful view of the mountains. The rooms are cleaned every day, and the towels are always changed. You can ask for bathrobes to be replaced, they will bring new ones without any questions. The toiletries are also good, very pleasant scents, we realized that we didn't need to bring many things with us. Guest Relations: I express my gratitude for all the help, they helped us with organizing a birthday celebration, they arranged for the restaurant to beautifully decorate the table for us, and then the team of waiters congratulated our friends with a cake and candles. The friends were very happy! A la carte restaurant Pasha: A good selection of dishes, lightning-fast service, very attentive staff, all of them are smiling and friendly. We had a great culinary experience. The hotel has many advantages, the large territory of the hotel is pleasing, where you can take a leisurely walk, there is a heated pool, and an aqua park. There are many cats on the territory, all of them are clean and affectionate. Beautiful views of the mountains and quick access to the sea. The territory is green, with many trees and plants. Clean and fresh air, just what you need. Therefore, I can confidently recommend this hotel to vacationers.

I have been visiting Turkey for over 2 years and have stayed at the Akka Antedon hotel more than 7 times! Everything here is excellent, from the reception to the assistance in any situation! Unfortunately, out of the 7 days, only three were sunny, but even on those days, the bars and confectionery were open at the beach! The room cleaning is a 5 out of 5! The food is excellent! Always fresh! A huge thank you to the ladies working with the guests! Many thanks to everyone at the reception, especially for helping with finding transportation! I have always recommended this hotel and will continue recommending it to my friends! Wishing you success and prosperity in the future!

He met us by the water taxi in the morning and we hardly left the pool for most of the vacation. The water park was fantastic. They were performing maintenance on the slides and pools while we were there: they filled the huge unheated pool, renovated the children's slide area in one day (!), and worked on the larger water park for a bit longer, but still efficiently. They were regrouting and cleaning the tile seams, tightening screws, and taking care of everything. You can feel the owners' meticulous attention. The entire hotel and its renovations are almost in perfect condition; even if there are some doors or furniture that are not new or completely fresh, it only adds charm to the hotel. The hotel's style makes even the older interior items look more interesting. One point about the food: it was excellent. The chef is fantastic, the meat is outstanding, always a variety of options: lamb, veal, beef, chicken, turkey, delicious kebabs, grilled cutlets, perfectly cooked fish, obviously fresh. Very juicy and tasty. The grilled trout is heavenly. The baked goods are delicious, the pastries are tasty. Many fruits: apples, pomegranates, pears, oranges, grapefruits, bananas. The alcohol is very good, but not premium in the winter concept. The bartenders and restaurant staff were fantastic. They were all perfect and friendly, providing quick service. One bartender even refused to serve a fourth sweet cocktail to a child and asked where the parents were. He said that he has children too and that too much sugar is harmful. I would give him 5 points just for that. In general, the entire staff is friendly and hospitable, the receptionist Zulfiaz quickly resolves all issues, and guest relations manager Laman also helps with everything. If you go to the hotel, turn to them with any questions. There are many advantages, and they can be listed for a long time: the convenient territory, infrastructure, plenty of space for online work, excellent Wi-Fi, power outlets everywhere for charging. Very convenient. The beautiful inner patio, kids club, playground. The terraces on the second floor are fantastic. There is even a vegetation map on the territory, showing what and where has been planted. We were there in early March - something was already blooming and there was a nice smell of pines and the sea. It was so appetizing. The downsides of the hotel are the cleaning. Until we complained, they were not cleaning properly, slacking off. When you give them money, they clean even worse. Guest relations manager Laman explained this and quickly organized proper cleaning. The hotel has an app through which all issues can be easily resolved. Another downside is the entrance to the sea. In the season, it is probably inconvenient. Even in the coral shoes, it was not easy. I swam in the sea - they showed one cleared entrance. The pier was not yet installed, so you couldn't swim from there. If everyone lines up in the season, it will be even more difficult to swim. At the entrance, there are huge stones. Everything else is beyond praise. I definitely recommend this hotel. We were amused by the granny in the shop near the hotel, selling overpriced counterfeit towels. She had a tantrum because we didn't buy two sweaters from her as gifts, but we didn't have time, as we were leaving. But overall, it was awful. A greedy lady. Clearly lacking manners. My husband and I were shocked. And it was surprising that such fake products like "Gucci-China" can still be found in a decent hotel. We liked the owner of the food shop, a guy from Rostov who speaks Russian accordingly. The prices were reasonable. You don't have to go far for gifts. We didn't even go to other shops. We went on excursions to Kaleici and the Dino Park, booking everything with guides. We also took a taxi to Kemer through the Dino Park, with a wait, for $35. Turkey is beautiful in March, and this hotel is exceptional! So, have a great vacation everyone!

My friend and I were on vacation in January 223. First of all, I want to say that the hotel values its guests; they heard and considered all our requests and opinions. There was a personalized approach. The territory is very beautiful... The biggest advantage is the people; the staff is very kind and responsive! The hotel is more suitable for family or peaceful vacations, as well as for couples or friends... The food is good, and there are open heated pools on the premises, which were very relevant in January. I want to express huge gratitude from our entire group to Olesya! She is a wonderful person and a professional in her field. The hotel helped us in a difficult situation, even though they were not obliged to do so. We lost our passports before departure and ran out of cash, but they assisted us, provided a car from the hotel, drove us to the consulate and the airport. And this is very expensive, the hotel is genuinely interested in your comfort and assistance. We felt taken care of throughout the entire vacation. Once again, THANK YOU! Wishing you all the best and prosperity. P.S. We will definitely come back and bring all our friends :-)

I'm writing a detailed review right after my trip. 1. In case anyone finds this information useful - I'm writing it down. The tour operator is Pegas, the flight is with the Turkish charter company SouthWind. By default, only water is provided on board, with a baggage allowance of 1 kg and a carry-on allowance of 8 kg. It's cheap and efficient, with minimal delays. The transfer was excellent, in a brand new minibus, without multiple stops at different hotels. It took about 45 minutes from the airport. The hotel guide didn't show up (or was late) for the meeting. We didn't see them at all - which was actually for the best as we didn't plan on taking any excursions anyway. 2. Now, onto the hotel itself. We arrived around 8 am. There were no wristbands, and they served food to everyone comfortably, regardless of early check-in or late check-out. We were checked-in by 9:30 am (!!!). We had registered in advance through the app, we only had to fill out the COVID questionnaire. It was simply superb. The room was spacious, with a sofa bed in addition to the main bed, and standard furnishings (wardrobe, desk, writing table, chairs, balcony furniture). The bathroom was convenient, and the fixtures were in good condition. There was a safe, hairdryer, air conditioner, mini-fridge (with water and soda), kettle with tea/coffee packets, bathrobes - everything was provided without any additional charge. The housekeeping was done well, and everything was replenished regularly. 3. We had previously stayed in Alinda, and on the next day, the hotel sent us a complimentary gift (a bottle of wine and fruits). It was a nice gesture. They also gave us one free visit to the à la carte restaurant (which usually costs 15 euros per person). 4. The hotel grounds are not extravagant but also not small. Everything is well-maintained. Overall, the hotel is impeccably clean. There are many cats around - well-behaved, they don't enter the building or leave any mess behind. There is a large heated outdoor pool and a good water park. We were lucky with the weather, there was sun - so we bathed in the sea, even though the water was refreshing. The beach is pebbly-sandy. 5. The food was excellent, catering to every taste. The selection was huge, everything was VERY delicious and freshly prepared with care and beautifully presented. There was an abundance of meat, fish (even red fish and tuna). The variety of baked goods, desserts, and ice cream was amazing; it was truly delightful. The local beverages (according to the winter concept) were decent. The poolside bar always had mulled wine - not too strong, but hot and aromatic, perfect for outdoor walks! 6. Apart from the main restaurant, during the day, there's a pastry shop (including ice cream), an excellent coffee shop, and a snack bar (burgers, hot dogs, fries). The à la carte restaurant called "Pasha" was of a high standard, and we were pleasantly surprised. 7. The spa center offers an indoor pool, jacuzzi, hammam, and saunas. Massages are available for an additional fee. There is also a gym, but we didn't use it. 8. The hotel offers entertainment, but it's not overly intrusive. Every day there was darts and target shooting with air guns (about 6-7 bullets per person). They also organize trips to the Gainuk Canyon and culinary masterclasses. Due to the low number of guests during our stay, there were hardly any fitness programs (not enough people were interested). There are courts for tennis and table tennis. There is a good cinema - we passed by and took a peek during one showing. In the evenings, there is karaoke/live music in the lobby, and there was one trivia quiz. It wasn't very active or long-lasting. The main crowd, as it seemed to me, consisted of families with children. 9. We rented bicycles (for free, with a $1 deposit). There were only 5 bikes for the entire hotel. Keep in mind that there are no locks for them. The bikes have seen better days, and the seats are very hard. We didn't dare to ride them to Kemer. However, we took them around the area and reached the Gainuk Canyon, enjoying the views. 10. In general, the vacation was 1% perfect. The hotel was wonderful, and most importantly, the staff was exceptional, going above and beyond to make the stay truly blissful. We sincerely thank them!

I am writing a review while still staying at the hotel, probably because I really liked the hotel. I cannot write anything about queues, etc., because we arrived at the end of August. There are no queues in bars or restaurants. Of course, the first thing that pleased me was the territory - pine trees, trees, lawns. There are no cheap flower beds and endless flowers. The pine trees around the pools create shade, even umbrellas are not always needed, and in some places they also provide shade on the pool, including the children's pool, so it's comfortable to swim even during the day. The sea is clean, there is a pier - diving is a pleasure. We are staying on the ground floor, very convenient with children, they clean and replenish the minibar daily. I don't know what anyone can hear there (by the way, I looked at room 133, where a girl who left a negative review stayed, it's right next to ours), but after a day at the sea, we sleep like logs. The room is a standard one, everything is intact, without any special frills, but the room is the last thing that worries me on vacation. The main thing is to have hot water and a comfortable mattress. The food and bar are excellent, there is always red fish for breakfast, lamb and red fish on the grill in the evening, Dorado, and some kind of fried fish, turkey - they have everything. Special thanks for the vegetables and herbs. There is not much of the leftover mixture, which is made from remaining products. They partially serve the food from behind the counter, which is great - no one stands there and touches it with their hair. The cocktails are delicious, premium alcohol, Jägermeister, Martell, Hennessy, etc. The beer is bottled. Good dishes, even crystal ones. Coffee shops, ice cream available almost all day. Waffles. You can eat anytime. Pancakes, kebabs, etc. We have lunch at the pool cafe. Ordering from the menu, everything is very tasty. The animation is not intrusive, there is a kids club for children. Our kids don't go often, but they enjoy it. I am still in favor of them swimming more. Good shows, the stage is slightly to the side and facing the sea, so as not to disturb the guests in the evening. The service is excellent, no one expects constant tips, the waiters and bartenders are equally friendly. We gladly leave a tip. I remember in some hotel they only considered Germans as people. Everything is conveniently located, everything is nearby. But there is also a place to walk. It is important when you have children. And there is very good communication, they immediately called and asked how we were settled, asked if we needed an iron, then called and asked if they brought it to us. They noted that the child has allergies and offered special food, but there is food available for allergic people as well. Overall, I recommend it and want to come back. We have also been to Titanic Belek, which is more crowded and bigger, but the territory is worse for me, it's like a plane. Justiniano Alanya had great animators, but the rest was not so great, especially the lack of air conditioning in the restaurant, imagine having lunch in Turkey in July outdoors, the food is at 3. Overall, we recommend it. The only downside is the price, but that's the case everywhere now. I also want to mention that everything is clean everywhere - behind the bar, in the main restaurant, they constantly clean the pools, wipe the tiles, the toilets at the beach and the shared toilets in the building. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

In this hotel and chain (we have been to Akka Alinda) not for the first time. The hotel is consistent in its attitude, dining concept, and the quality of our stay. Check-in (in the evening) took less than one minute. They gave us a choice of two rooms (next to each other) in the family building. It's hard to call the room a two-room one, but since it has an adjoining door, it is considered as such. As always, there was a bottle of wine and fruits in the room (for regular guests). The room is clean, but you can tell that it has been used. It really needs renovations, and it is quite obvious. The bathroom has all the necessary cosmetics and shower accessories: a loofah, soap, body wash, shampoo, shaving set, toothpaste, and toothbrush. The mini-bar is constantly restocked (they will bring it a second time in a day if needed): Fanta, Coke, Sprite, beer, juice, water, cookies. The cleanliness is rated four out of five, but there are more concerns about the dirty balconies and streaky floors. The bedding was changed when needed, and the beds were moved. There was entertainment (we caught a family festival), but it was not intrusive (to the extent that people complained about not knowing about the events). There was a children's party, where they painted cars, made crafts, and had fun activities for the whole family. As for the food, it was as always: a variety of options. You will not go hungry, especially the barbecue section (tuna, lamb, turkey, chicken, fish: trout, mackerel, dorado, and some others). Shrimp and calamari were also served a couple of times (for those who find it important). They also offered strawberries. As for the bars, we had non-alcoholic cocktails with our child: they make them to suit any taste. My husband had tequila and whiskey (imported), just make sure to ask for "Olmecca" instead of tequila. The bottled beer was available, and for those who find it important, the champagne selection was normal (known brands were absent). The children's club proved to be safe. You bring your child there, they keep track of everyone. There are activities all day long. They come back with crafts or face paint (all in accordance with parents' approval). Special greetings to Alina and Nastya. We only went to the adult pool, the water was warm. There were a couple of rainy days, so the pool felt even warmer. You can warm up in the cafe with a hot coffee. The sea is still cold, but many people were swimming. The persistent sellers of services (shopping trips, photographers, spa) are exhausting - they constantly attack and don't understand a simple "no". The bus stop is right in front of the hotel (we went to Kemer). There is a pharmacy nearby. The market is within walking distance on Mondays (but we didn't buy anything other than souvenirs). There are talks about renovations in the hotel, and it really needs them already. We hope that it will happen soon, and we will come back again.

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.

At the hotel for the second time in six months. We really like this hotel. I'll start by saying that it is not suitable for those who love showing off, as there are no crystal chandeliers or Swarovski staircases. However, it is amazing for a conscious relaxation. Let me start from the beginning. The hotel is clean, cozy, and family-friendly with good entertainment. The rooms are comfortable, clean, well-maintained, and the minibar is restocked every day. Upon arrival, we received a compliment from the hotel (for regular guests), which was a bottle of wine and fruits, as well as one free visit to the A la carte restaurant of our choice (priced at 3€ per person). We went to the seafood restaurant and were very satisfied. The only downside of the room is the hairdryer – if you use it frequently, it's better to bring your own. A special thanks to the service team at 6666, they solve any issues promptly. We asked for children's bathrobes and slippers and they were provided. Feel free to call them for any questions. The next point is the kids' club. It works like a daycare. Children can be registered as independent or only under parental supervision. It's very convenient, and they do a lot of activities with the kids – the children happily run there. The children's disco in the evening is also very enjoyable. Thanks to the animators Alina, Nastya, and Zhadru for keeping the children happy – they are fantastic. The reception team is also great, very friendly staff, special thanks to the charming Zulfina. Moving on to the bars. The drinks are all high quality, with bottled beers and wines. There is a wide selection of wines, both classics and fruit varieties, and my favorite is the pomegranate one. The cocktails are delicious, and they can make any drink you desire. The coffee in the cafe is excellent, it's nice to sit and enjoy it in the morning. It is also cool that there are fridges with drinks (water, juices, cola, Fanta, Sprite, ayran) on the hotel grounds. The pool is large and pleasantly cool, while the small pool is heated – it's great, you don't want to leave. Even the little ones enjoy it. The water park is also fantastic, with warm water like in a bathtub and good slides. The beach is like a fairy tale. It's made of stones but comfortable, the water is very clean and warm, and the mountain view adds a special charm to this place. There are always enough sunbeds, although there are also many people who like to occupy them. For special requests, there are tents and pavilions available for an additional fee, and there are different types of rooms such as standard, family, duplex, and villas. The food is very diverse, there are no queues, and the service is good. If it matters to anyone, the hotel mainly employs chefs, which is only a plus for me. As for the dishes, they serve fish, chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, crayfish, crabs, and seafood. By the way, there is a good hammam and sauna in the hotel. We will definitely return for a third time.

Over the past 15 years, we have preferred to relax in city hotels in Antalya, but this time we decided to change the region to Kemer, where we were 26 years ago and reminisce! (because our favorite hotel in the center of Antalya was temporarily closed, and our other favorite hotel, Rixos Downtown, became very expensive due to the exchange rate). We spent a long time choosing a hotel in Kemer, our main requirements were excellent and quality service, good food and quality imported alcohol, a beach with a pier, and no problems with the availability of sunbeds! We would like to have fewer children and Russian-speaking guests in the hotel, but this is a problem in the vicinity of Kemer, as the Kemer region is very popular among families with children and is mostly oriented towards Russian-speaking tourists! As a result, the 16+ hotels in Kemer were also temporarily closed, and we booked the Akka Alinda 5* hotel, which we liked based on reviews from other guests. When we arrived in Antalya, our tour operator informed us that our hotel had been changed to AKKA ANTEON. We were a little disappointed because Antedon positions itself as a hotel for families with children only and it is located in the village of Beldibi, not Kirish, and is quite far from civilization and the city of Kemer, and we are used to spending evenings outside the hotel! But when we arrived at the hotel, our mood improved significantly because we were given an upgraded room with a direct view of the sea and the main pool in the main building (room 1132). We didn't ask for anything, they just pleasantly surprised us! The room was very nice, double, with a separate work area and sleeping area, and a seating area with a sofa, table, and TV! The room was very spacious and had a very large bathroom with a separate bathtub and shower! The room had bathrobes for our comfort. The room itself was a bit worn out and the plumbing was also quite old, but the hotel closes for renovations in winter, and it will be updated, and I think the price will increase! We were very happy to have stayed at this not so cheap hotel and had a wonderful comfortable room at old prices!) We had booked a Standard Side Block Room at the Akka Alinda Hotel 5, but in the end, we got an upgraded comfort room with a sea view at the improved Akka Antedon hotel. Thank you very much to the hotel for the welcome bonuses! The food at the hotel was very diverse and catered to all tastes! I give it a solid four! I missed having blue cheese in the morning! The alcohol at the hotel was imported, with a wide selection! The beach was large, clean, and well-maintained (I only give it a solid four because of the rude behavior of some tourists who occupied sunbeds on the beach and did not show up for a long time, and on the last day of our vacation, we had to put our things on a stool and swim in the sea until someone vacated the sunbeds!) The room cleaning service was exceptional! It was always very clean, and the bed linen was changed almost every day! The towels were of good quality, and the bed linen was also excellent! Various toiletries were replenished every day in large quantities! The minibar and various snacks were also constantly replenished! The hotel staff is very dedicated, they do everything with quality and without being intrusive! The bartenders in the bars were also very nice, they did everything with a smile and quickly! I give a solid five for the service at the hotel! I can't say anything about the entertainment because I'm not interested in it, but according to reviews from other guests, many people really enjoyed it! It's a paradise for children! There are constant activities for them during the day and evening! There is also a water park on the premises, but we didn't go there or to the pools! There are also many cafes on the premises with really good coffee and tea! There is a snack bar with good cheesy pizza! In general, we liked the hotel, and I think it will be even better after renovations! I recommend it for families with children and for people who prefer to stay within the hotel premises without going outside! I missed having something to do outside the hotel! There are only ruins with cheap clothing, small grocery stores, pharmacies, and other hotels beyond the hotel's premises! You can reach Kemer by bus, but it takes a long time and is not comfortable! Taxis were very expensive this year, we only took it once, and it cost $25 one way! Overall, we had a great vacation! Everything was enjoyable, especially the magnificent views of the mountains and the wonderful sea, and the excellent qualified staff at the hotel! Will I return to this hotel? Probably not! It's just not my style of vacation! Unless there is some irresistible offer that I can't refuse!)) But I highly recommend the hotel! Thanks to AKKA for a great time!

A month ago we returned from AKKA and overall impression is good! Let's start from the beginning: we arrived at the hotel at 1 o'clock and were greeted by a nice girl who immediately offered us to have a late breakfast, and then register. We had a delicious breakfast and went to the reception satisfied. There we were greeted very warmly by Adam... They offered us to check in immediately on the 1st floor, which is actually the 2nd floor since the counting starts from 0, or wait until 2:00 PM and then there may be more options. We decided to wait. They gave us towels cards and we went to explore the territory. The pools are clean, big, and with different depths. The sea pleased us with its transparency and warmth. On the left side of the pier, the entrance is gradual, with small pebbles, but there is also a well-equipped smooth entrance. On the right side of the pier, there are small stones, it is a bit difficult to enter the water, but there is also an equipped entrance. If you stand knee-deep in water for a long time, occasionally fish will nibble you. We got so carried away with swimming that we forgot to go for lunch. But it's impossible to stay hungry there. There is a very nice coffee shop, tea room, a house with pastries and ice cream, and a bar. Fruits, hot dogs/shawarma, and gözleme at certain hours. Water, Coke, Fanta, Sprite, juices, and kefir are available from dawn to dusk. The water park is away from the pools. Different slides, everyone will find something for their mood. The children's room is interesting, but the outdoor area requires attention from the management: the water that pours on the kids from the attractions smells like a swamp, and the sandbox looks messy. We were given a room in the apartment building on the 4th floor with a view towards the sea, but it is not visible because of the trees. The bathroom is nice, clean without mold, but the plumbing and furniture are worn out. I read that AKKA Antedon will not be operating in winter this year, as they plan to renovate the rooms. That's great! The territory is big, well-groomed, there is a place to walk in the shade. I would like to mention the entire staff, polite and friendly! Room cleaning is done every day, the toilets on the territory are clean, water is constantly wiped off the tiles near the pools, but it's still slippery, you have to be very careful not to slip, and the mats along the pools also help. Everywhere is clean and tidy! We don't really like going to the same place, but we would come back here. We really liked the sea, the territory, the delicious food, and the pleasant atmosphere! We wish the hotel success and great mood to the vacationers!

I will say right away that despite some downsides, overall the vacation was a success and perhaps I would come here again. However, my impressions were somewhat contradictory. The hotel is located in a village, adjacent to a primary school. A mosque is very close by, so at first the whole family would wake up at 5.3 during the first call to prayer. By the end of the vacation, we got used to it. Some of the windows face the road as the hotel is right on it. Smoking is allowed everywhere, which is surprising considering it is a family hotel. They even smoke during evening shows. The food is behind glass, and waiters put what you point at. It's very inconvenient. Moreover, not everyone is careful, so often the sauce or soup drips from the plate. The food is delicious and varied enough. There are a lot of fruits. There is a children's restaurant with more dietary options, several types of purees (meat, vegetables, fruit puree). During the day, you can eat at the snack bar or the tent with flatbreads. There is also a coffee shop and a pastry shop with sweets and ice cream. The territory is quite large, and there are several hammocks in the garden. The kids' club is held on the enthusiasm of the animators. I am very grateful to them for their imagination and warm attitude towards children. But still, it's somewhat funny for a 5-star hotel that the music plays from the animator's phone connected to the microphone during the pajama party for the kids. There are no evening children's shows, only discos. The adult entertainment is a 4, without enthusiasm. Usually, you know the whole team by the time of departure, but not this time. I didn't attend the women's sports activities, so I cannot comment on that part. The beach is pebbly, with a comfortable entry zone and a pier. On the beach, there is a nice sandbox for children under a roof, fenced off with toys. We stayed in the Apart building, and the room was beyond praise. It was a spacious two-roomed suite. The kids slept in their own area, and between our bedrooms was a bathroom with a shower and a bathtub. They cleaned it every day, timely replaced drinks, cookies, etc. The beddings and towels were also changed very often. The room was spacious. Most of the staff is friendly and welcoming. The younger employees in the restaurant are not that great. The drinks at the bar are of average quality, especially the cocktails. The furniture and walls in some areas show that the hotel needs renovation. There is a gym, a hammam, a sauna, and a hydro massage, all free of charge. There is also a fairly decent water park, a children's pool, and adult pools with different depths. On the territory, there are shops with everything necessary at fairly moderate prices. Overall, if you ask me if I would go to this hotel again, I would have to think about it. But I sincerely thank those people who performed their job with dedication! These are the housekeepers, children's animators, waiters in the main restaurant hall, and the women who bake the flatbreads. And my children send a heartfelt greeting to waitress Arzu))).

We stayed at Hotel Akka Antedon from September 5th to September 14th, 223 AD. Prior to that, we had already stayed at Akka Alinda twice. Antedon is definitely better than Alinda; firstly, the territory is larger, very green, well-maintained, and presentable. Alinda has a much smaller territory, but the service there is not bad. I would like to leave a review about Hotel Akka Antedon to help other tourists in choosing a hotel. We really liked this hotel; we have stayed in many hotels in Turkey and have something to compare it with. We have always been lucky in our choices, except for one time when we did not enjoy our stay at the overhyped Marco Polo Hotel. So, we arrived at Hotel Akka Antedon around 1 pm, filled out the forms, and were offered to have lunch while they prepared our room. We were checked in after lunch at 3 pm. Our room was on the second floor with a view of the mountains and the hotel entrance. The view was very beautiful. The room was approximately 35 square meters, so not small. The balcony was also spacious and had a drying rack, a table, and two chairs. Inside the room, there was one double bed, a small sofa, a coffee table with chairs, a mini-bar with a wide assortment (2 mineral waters, 2 Efes beers, 2 colas, 2 Sprites, 2 tea cans, 2 packaged juices, and 2 large bottles of water). There were large wardrobes for clothing in the hallway, along with a safe. There was also a television with 3 Russian channels, although they were all psychic channels that broadcast all day long. The bathroom was fine, with shampoos, shower gel, and creams in small bottles of good quality. The only inconvenience was the bath with a curtain; it was not convenient to climb in and out for a shower. It would have been better to have a separate shower. The room was cleaned well, towels were changed every day, and the bed linen was changed frequently too. The main restaurant in the hotel was very large, but there was always plenty of space to find a seat, even though the hotel was fully booked. The food was very diverse, with freshly squeezed mandarin and orange juices always available, as well as lightly salted salmon, deliciously salted fish, grilled sea bass, sea bream, and salmon (although it was a bit dry). In the evenings, there were occasionally crayfish and shrimp. The soup options varied every day, and the meat options included chicken, turkey, lamb, and beef (although it wasn't always well-prepared). I won't list everything; it will be too long. There were several bars, and we mainly used the one near the pool. We used the one near the airplane park once. There was a good snack bar near the pool with a wide selection of lunch and dinner options, and the waiters served food upon request. The staff in the restaurants and bars were very courteous and quickly fulfilled all requests and orders. The alcohol was mostly imported and freely available, and the cocktails were professionally made and very tasty. There was also a separate tea and coffee shop on the premises with pastries. Ice cream was available throughout the day in several locations, and imported ice creams were offered starting from 11 am. The beach was large, and there was always a place under the tent even when the beach was crowded. There was a large pier with sun loungers and umbrellas. The sea entrance had pebbles in some places but was comfortable for swimming in the corals. The water was very clear and transparent, unlike in Belek. In general, I highly recommend this hotel. By the way, we also visited the sauna and the spa complex, which were good. I forgot to mention that there is a refrigerator on the beach where you can take water, mineral water, cola, sprite, packaged juices, ayran, and canned tea.

Flight. We flew as usual with Turkish Airlines, but this time there were no regular flights, only a charter flight from the operator at a reasonable price for the tour (Sanmar offered a price 5 rubles cheaper than Sletat.ru with a similar package). This time there wasn't as much positivity from Turkish Airlines, but a charter flight is a charter flight, even if it's Turkish. The flight there was delayed by 3 minutes. Yes, it's not much, but it hasn't happened in many years. The plane was old, with no screens and therefore no entertainment on board, and no gifts for children either. There were also no power outlets. For the price we paid for the tour, we could have easily flown with Aeroflot, but the criterion was a foreign company, as the planes are serviced properly, unlike here. The return flight was the same, but without any delays. What was pleasing was that both the outbound and return flights were on a Boeing 777-3, which is safe. Transfer. The public transfer from the airport took 45 minutes, and with an individual transfer, you can "fly" in just 3 minutes. Our hotel was the first on the way. Hotel. The breathtaking view of the mountains immediately catches your eye, it's hard to find the words to describe it, you need to see it. Check-in was instant, and we asked for rooms of a higher category due to a birthday. They gave us two two-story rooms with a sea view for 4 people, even though there was a category with a view of the ground. The room number is 1415, on the 4th floor you can see the sea, but probably not on the 2nd floor. Uras Zulfina at the reception helped us fill out the forms, for which we are very grateful. If the administration is reading the reviews, thank you so much for such a gift! The territory is bigger and more beautiful than at Alinda. I liked the layout of the hotel. The rooms were nice, but the bathrooms need renovation, they are all worn out and the plumbing is not great, but everything works. All the necessary toiletries are provided. The quality is so-so. The bedding, beds, and mattresses are all good, but the towels need replacing (they are very worn out). The cleaning service is good. Any questions related to staying in the room are quickly resolved by the hotel's AKKA service at 6666 - lightning fast. They call back and check if everything is okay. Respect! Several times in the evenings there was no hot water due to the hotel being busy, but the issue was resolved with a phone call, it remains a mystery how. All the water is bottled. The drinks are all of good quality. The imported alcohol is of good quality, including Jameson Whiskey, Jack Daniels, Black Label, Ballantine's, and Chivas Regal. There is Martell cognac and Baileys liqueur, all original. All cocktails are made with good ingredients, and if tonics are used, they are Schweppes. There is Efes beer in the room, and in the bar, they have Miller, Bud, and Beck's in bottles. I read in the reviews that they offer single malt whiskey, but no, it's only for an additional fee, and they only have 12 years and older. I want to separately mention the separate coffee shop, the coffee is great. The ice cream is delicious, they have various varieties, including Algia. The food is average, on arrival there was red lightly salted fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but after two days of our stay it disappeared and didn't appear again for the next 8 days. Fried red fish (trout) was a frequent guest, there was crab once. There were no shrimp at all (except in salads soaked in vinegar), and pure lamb was served only once, it was strange (I love lamb and know about it). Cheese with mold was good every morning. I didn't like the sweets, but the Eastern sweets were fine. Dried fruits such as nuts and dried apricots are missing from breakfast. There is comb honey. Prunes are served every other day. You won't go hungry with the food, but it's not amazing either, I would rate it 4 out of 5. Yes, there is a late dinner at 23. It's not just for show, there is something to snack on. You can have a delicious shawarma near the bar on the beach, it's great. The staff tries very hard. Beach. There are enough sunbeds, but to protect yourself from the sun, you have to play a game of Tetris with the sun lounger all day, it's not well thought out. The ladies' rooms on the beach are clean and cleaned regularly. There is no hand sanitizer, but there are wet wipes on the tables. The entrance into the sea is not great, it's better to wear swim shoes. In the first few days, you can still go in, but then your feet get soaked and sharp pebbles cut your fingers. You can use the pontoon to get into the water, or the pier, but it's not always convenient. Gym. It's a disgrace, maybe not many people need it, but that's no reason to neglect the existing gym in the hotel. It's on the list, so it shouldn't be so inadequate. The equipment is from the first world war, or maybe even earlier, and there are no bars for bench pressing or squats at all. Out of the three treadmills, only one is working. The exercise bikes are also in poor condition, they seem to have borrowed them from some torture chamber. In general, I will deduct a star for this. The evening entertainment program was a 3 out of 5. Playing bingo at 9:30 pm, seriously? The girls are sitting in their dresses, waiting for the dancing, and instead they have to play bingo, with serious faces. They must have drunk so much whiskey that bingo is the only thing they can handle at 9:30 pm. They could have included a disco in the bingo program, it wouldn't have spoiled anyone's mood, since there were no people there, and no music at all. It's like the DJ doesn't know what music is (a boy showed with gestures that his name is Juan). Only one bewitched person is dancing, in such a state that even if there was no music at all, it wouldn't have bothered him much. The bewitched person is the one who dances at the disco in AKKA Antedon. There's nothing to do outside the hotel, it's very dirty. It's far from civilization. The prices are like in Monaco. Lukum KOSKA for 2 grams costs 7 dollars. Overall, I liked the hotel more than I didn't. The price and quality were good. Will we come back again? Time will tell. Wishing everyone a good mood and a wonderful vacation. Yours sincerely.

I stayed for 9 nights with my girlfriend at Akka Antedon (4.71) in early September. I will compare it to Queen's Park Tekirova (4.59) and Bellis Deluxe (4.68), as I have not been to any other hotels. The first thing that immediately caught my attention was the food. Food BEHIND GLASS in 2023. I did not expect that at all. Why?? Yes, they will give you as much as you want, but you have to point with your finger and say the quantity. We are all used to the standard all-inclusive. You would also have to get your own grilled food, bread, pasta, pizza, Turkish bagels, pancakes, nuggets, and French fries. The food itself is very high quality, delicious, and varied. Yes, I did not find any sushi rolls or coconuts here. Honey in combs was only available once for breakfast on the day of departure, but there was meat, grilled chicken, and fish every day, fresh pizza, different side dishes, even exotic ones like stuffed grape leaves and artichokes. There is meat and fish for every taste: fried, stewed, baked, and even a diet menu. In the evenings, there are crayfish, crabs, and shrimp. As usual in such hotels, there are plenty of cakes and pastries, so you will definitely take a few extra kilos with you. I want to mention the amazing work of the waiters. I have never seen anything like it, even at Bellis. They move at supersonic speed. As soon as you sit down, they immediately come over and ask what you would like to drink. By the way, you will know when it's time to go to dinner from the pier. The smell and smoke from the grilling kebab spread throughout the hotel, so I do not recommend getting rooms overlooking the restaurant. The Wi-Fi works perfectly everywhere. There is no bar either on the pier or on the beach. There are three bars, two by the pool and one in the hotel lobby. Ballantine's, Jameson, Rakia, and many other drinks are available to your taste, but NOT 24/7. The lobby is very large with endless sofas where tourists sleep while waiting to be checked in or out, and hotel staff running after them. Refrigerators with non-alcoholic drinks are located near the beach and throughout the hotel. I really liked the behavior of the people who constantly walk around the hotel offering services such as parachuting, photos, massages, excursions... They do it discreetly, with humor, and calmly. Yes-yes, no-no. You can also have a conversation with them about almost anything, joke, and laugh together. The hotel has almost no entertainment. In the morning, there is yoga/pilates, and then stones/darts. That's it. During the most active time between breakfast and lunch, nothing happens. And this is strange because the hotel has a huge pool. After lunch, everyone will definitely want to splash around in the pool until their stomachs are full. And they do. There are no foam parties in the pool or youth gatherings. In the evening, after the animation in the amphitheater, there are sometimes amazing performances by acrobats on trampolines or live performances of Latin American dances to live music. They also play live songs from the retro radio repertoire. It is a calm family hotel for a vacation with children. There is a mosque nearby, so the muezzin will sing 4-5 times a day for all of Beldibi, the first time being at 5:20 in the morning. The sun sets behind the mountain that hangs over the hotel at around half-past six in the evening. For me, in September, it is already a bit chilly to swim after that. On one side of the hotel, there is some bay and a marina for boats. When you pass by, it smells. The gym is just a disgrace. For a hotel of this level, it is just OLD RUSTY IRON. Even in a small basement gym, the equipment is better. There is not even a basic bench press. Not only was the gym allocated a room slightly larger than a normal kitchen, but it also seems that the equipment has not been changed since the hotel was built. Yes, you can still work out if you want, but when you are on vacation in such a high-level hotel where awards and certificates don't fit on the stands, you expect more. On some website, someone said that trainers come to this gym and give masterclasses. That's just funny. No respectable trainer would train on this inconvenient old equipment. Although for money, anything is possible. They should have gotten rid of the unnecessary indoor pool that nobody needs and expanded the gym. The snack bar works on a strange system. You cannot just go and take a couple of fruits or nuggets. You have to sit at a table, wait for a waiter, and order a whole plate of food, which is not particularly impressive in terms of variety. The air conditioning in the room works well, it even turns on and off by itself, but the control is manual, there is no remote control. In the lobby, there are three types of refreshing non-alcoholic lemonades for guests. There is no pontoon in the sea. It costs 8 euros to wrap a suitcase. (At Antalya Airport - 1 euro) The amphitheater is located at the edge of the hotel, next to the amphitheater of another hotel. When we have a break and it's quiet, their music can be heard very loudly. The hotel is free of flies and insects. They are not present anywhere at all. It is very nice that there is always a ball on the basketball court, although a bit worn out with time. It is unpleasant that both basketball hoops do not have nets.

Good time of day! My spouse and I had a vacation together from September 9th to September 17th, 2023. It's our second time staying at this hotel, we were here in September 2022 as well. Generally, we only go to Turkey in September. When choosing a hotel this year, we didn't come up with anything special and decided not to stress and to go to Akka (even though we're not fans of sameness). Thinking about what we wanted from our vacation, we remembered our previous year in Akka and compared similar hotels in terms of price, and we chose this one. The operator is Biblio-Globus, and our reception in Turkey was by Fit Holliday. Don't take excursions from Fit. We took the Tachtaly sunset and the aquarium. The organization of the excursions was terrible, especially the guide for Tachtaly, a young girl who ruined everything. I'll share the rest privately or in comments for those interested. The hotel guide, Islam, is great - greetings to you. We flew with Aeroflot for the first time to Turkey (previously always with Turks). Delays at both ends - there was a commotion on the plane on the way there and someone smoked on the plane on the way back. And they smoked on the flight that was picking us up. We were clearly unlucky. Now about Akka. We booked a direct sea view room but were given a side view initially, although it was a good one. After a while (two or three days), we will get a direct view. It's strange - why did we pay extra for a sea view. I'm not the type to make a scene, so I said: "Give me the best room with a sea view, the highest one." He said, "No, there's a duplex with two floors." Well, we don't need two floors, but if you have something that suits me right now, send it here and you'll get a bonus. A bonus works wonders. Thank you, comrade/mister Alper. By the way, last year he also upgraded our room, and we are genuinely grateful to him. The room is a duplex with a sea view. It's on the second floor, why wouldn't it be offered to us, but the view is stunning and it's not cramped))) The room has everything you need: a hairdryer, slippers, bathrobes, shampoos, gels, a safe, a minibar, tables, chairs, furniture, beds, laminate flooring, tiles... well, everything - wait, I'm done. If there's anything missing, call them, they will bring it to you. We asked for an iron and ironing board - they brought them. However, they said to return it after 3 minutes. They came for it after 2 minutes, and my wife said to keep it longer and the ironing board stood outside the door until the next lunch)) The cleaning service is ordinary, I left $1 each time. It doesn't affect anything, I just always leave tips, it's my principle. If something is missing, ask again - they will definitely bring it to you. Food. Everything satisfied us in terms of variety and quality of the food. We weren't very pleased this time that there were so many people at dinner, so we went closer to 9 PM. We had à la carte dinners at our favorite restaurant Gullet. The seafood restaurant is superb. There is a real difference compared to the main restaurant. Tested twice. The waiters were overwhelmed this year, it seems like there are more guests or they eat for longer. I remember the cartoon: "...since you didn't have anything left. Honestly, I was about to leave myself..." Separate lunch restaurant with a menu. It's located near the snack bar. In short, everything is delicious and there is an abundance of everything. There is a mini restaurant for children. Beach, pool. The entire beach is covered with huge rocks and big pebbles, we don't like it. We always stayed by the pool, and went to the sea to swim. It's more enjoyable and pleasant for us by the pool. There are special pathways to access the sea, and we used them. There is a pier - I dived from it. The pool is amazing - that says it all. My wife and I love hotel pools and know how to enjoy the atmosphere. There was entertainment. With these words, we can conclude. The entertainment team was better last year (no offense to the current staff), more fun, talkative, lively, and their chief was just lovely last time. But, if you find something interesting for yourself, you won't miss out on fun animations: darts, boules, volleyball, dancing, aqua aerobics, evening shows... The property. Average - not huge but not small either. Well-maintained. Lots of greenery and many corners of paradise: The cat's house. Sunbeds. Various fruit trees. Excellent water park. Turkish bath and spa. Gym. Open and closed children's clubs with vending machines. Traditional Turkish gözleme. Ice creams and tasty treats. Big and table tennis. Library (only mentioned for the sake of mentioning it). There is plenty to keep yourself busy. One downside: the hotel staff, please change the date on the sundial on time, because at 9 AM it's hard to see the previous day when you have a hangover, and you might be in shock for a couple of minutes, like a pigeon frozen in surprise - errr. And please use live flowers in those slits/pots, not a herbarium - it's not respectable, really. Bars. The snack bar is my main go-to. Good selection of alcoholic drinks, including imports. There is local stuff too. Cocktails depend on the bartender, find the one who knows how to make them. I found a couple of them and of course, I tipped them. The beach bar is more relaxed and you want to sit at a table there, especially in the evening. The drinks are the same. The lobby bar is rarely visited, but it opens at 9 AM - for those who need it. The others open at 1 PM. The coffee shop is good, I always got the Antedon coffee with Baileys there. It's similar to Spanish coffee. It's tasty and instantly adds brightness to your day. The hotel is suitable for families. Young people who like average or below-average activities will also enjoy it here. There's one thing to note. The sun sets around 5 PM because there's a mountain right next to the hotel. After 5 PM, there is no sun. Will we come here again? Yes. I'm attaching photos to the post. Akka is fantastic - thank you to the staff for their care. Like in all hotels, there are moments, but it's atmospheric here, and that's the main thing.

My mother, my two children, and I decided to go in March to warm up and swim in the heated pools. The agent recommended Accu Antedon, and after reading the reviews, we were all satisfied. Here are the advantages: - Fast airport transfer - Beautiful hotel and grounds - Heated pools and working water park - Excellent rooms - Very good food - There is a children's restaurant where kids can serve themselves, sit at small tables, and enjoy delicious food while watching cartoons on the TVs. - Good kids' club with caretakers - Internet works throughout the property - They make high-quality drinks and tasty cocktails (especially in the lobby) - Excellent coffee shop - They provide robes for everyone, including children, which is very convenient during the offseason. Although we had a winter concept, it was more than satisfactory for us! I think it would be even better during the season. I would gladly return to the hotel if given the opportunity!

We have been vacationing with our family in Turkey for the 6th time. We have stayed in Side, Kemer, Beldibi, and Kiris. After a vacation with some drawbacks last year, this year we decided without hesitation to return as a family for the second time to Beldibi, specifically to the Akka Antedon Hotel. We visited this hotel with our family in 2021 and already knew some things about it. Our vacation was from 19.07.2023 to 29.07.2023. Two days before departure, I started reading reviews that greatly disappointed me. There were too many negative reviews. Perhaps these were reviews from demanding tourists. When we arrived there, we realized that what we had read in the reviews was actually the opposite. Accommodation. The staff politely informed us that the room we had booked was still occupied and that we should try to come closer to 1 pm. By 1 pm, we were already in the room. After 1 minute, we heard a knock on the door. It was a representative of the hotel who brought us a vase with fruit and a bottle of wine - a compliment from the hotel, as we were here for the second time. Honestly, it was very nice for us. Restaurant. Very clean restaurant, kind waiters with smiles on their faces. We didn't have to wait long to get something to drink. The waiters served very promptly. There was plenty of food and it was very delicious. We were also offered to visit the "à la carte" restaurant, but we didn't take advantage of this opportunity. Beach. Clean beach. Small pebbles. We didn't need special footwear. You can find sun loungers throughout the day, but if you wanted to relax in a specific area, you had to go and reserve your spot in the morning. There is access to cola, Fanta, Sprite, and still water every day at the beach bar. After lunch, various types of hamburgers were prepared at the beach bar. Every evening, there were shows organized in the amphitheater for hotel guests, for which we are very grateful. For shopping enthusiasts, if you venture outside the hotel premises, you can find a street full of shops with various souvenirs. If you want something more serious, you can rent a taxi and travel around Antalya for 8 euros. Finally, I would like to tell you that no matter what reviews you read about this hotel, do not be disappointed. It is not exactly as written.

We were vacationing in Antedon as a family of three: husband, 8-year-old daughter, and myself, in early August. It was our first time in Akka, as we had been going to Alva in Belek for many years in a row, and once to Kemer, as well as to Voyage (Sorgun) before. But this year, Alva raised their prices even more, so we finally decided to visit Antedon, as we had been wanting to for a long time. P.S. I purposely mention the hotels to make it clear what I am comparing. The first thing I would like to mention is the staff's work. They are simply the best! I'll start with the reception: a big thank you to Zulfinaz, a patient, pleasant, and very polite girl, for resolving the relocation issue! I am very grateful to her for that! Initially, we were assigned a room with a view of the roof of the main building, which really disappointed me. I asked for a room with a mountain view, but it seemed noisy there. However, thanks to this sweet girl, we ended up staying in a room on the left side of the main restaurant on the second floor. It has a side view of the sea, although the sea is not very visible from there, it is quite quiet and comfortable. The only noise comes from the air conditioners of the restaurant in the morning, and the mosque can be heard (probably heard everywhere), but not too much. Also, thanks to Adam (if I remember his name correctly), he gave me a new key twice to open the door because I kept forgetting the cards in the room, the second time he even gave me two keys 😊. The guys in the restaurant and the snack bar literally ran from table to table, everything was very fast, always with a smile! I read some recent reviews before the trip, where it was written that the service at the hotel has deteriorated, maybe that's why they were trying so hard in August. But I have no complaints about that. The food is delicious, and there is a good variety. There were a lot of cherries, every day there were huge, ripe, sweet cherries. Well, there were also many other fruits, but I was only interested in cherries 😉. The alcohol was good and imported, my husband appreciated it. The rooms are ordinary, cleaning average, sometimes it was clear that they only cleaned because the beddings were arranged. But for me, it's not a big deal. If something was missing, they reacted very quickly and brought it. And then they even called back to make sure if everything was brought. The territory is beautiful and well-maintained. The mountains are stunning! The beach on the left has a good entry with small pebbles, we swam without coral. On the right, the stones are bigger. There are always places available on the beach on the right, but on the left, you need to occupy them in the morning, which can be a bit stressful. And perhaps, what disappointed me was the lack of canopies on half of the tents in the first row on the right where the good entry is. The canopies themselves are quite weak in terms of protection (compared to straw ones), and here they are also not available everywhere. The sun is scorching, and people naturally want to be under the canopies, but there aren't enough of them. This made it significantly difficult to find sun loungers in the shade. Towards the end of the vacation, many more people arrived, and it was impossible to pass through on the right. I would like the hotel to pay attention to this. Overall, the hotel is not new, but the territory and service are its major advantages, at least for me, so I am satisfied with it, and we did not regret choosing it.

I want to share my impressions of Akka Antedon hotel as a tourist. I stayed there with my family in May 223. In short, the hotel can be described as relaxing, with delicious and diverse food, a green territory, the sea and mountains, fresh air, and good service! Now, let's go into more detail. To start with, when booking this hotel, the transfer will be in a comfortable car with a driver. We reached the hotel from the airport within 1 hour. Upon entering the hotel, you can enjoy a fresh cold lemonade of your choice. We arrived at the hotel 3.5 hours before the official check-in time. After filling out the necessary documents, we were offered breakfast. An hour after breakfast, we were checked-in. The room was wonderful, spacious, clean, with a view of the mountains. The standard room had a comfortable double bed, a sofa bed, and a good mattress for the baby cot. We couldn't hear any music or mosques, which was important for us as we had children aged 3 and 1. The cleaning was done daily and was satisfactory. For the first 2 days after check-in, we put a "do not disturb" sign as we were sick before the flight and the kids were sleeping in the room. They called our room on the second day to confirm if we didn't want the room to be cleaned. The service was impressive. We also called the reception to request cleaning when the kids spilled juice. They arrived promptly. The minibar was included in the price, and it was restocked daily. The territory of the hotel is green, clean, and harmonious. It is fresh in the mornings, without exhausting heat. There are paths to walk with a stroller. The amphitheater and water park are located far from the main building, so it's not noisy in the accommodation area. Overall, the hotel has a peaceful atmosphere with many families with young children. There is a coffee shop, ice cream parlor, tea house, and 2 bars on the premises. They also offer local flatbread called "gezleme," refreshing drinks, and snacks on the beach. Personally, I wished the coffee shop would open earlier than 9, but it wasn't critical. Various games, yoga, and fitness activities are organized on the premises, but they have a discreet start and end. If you want to participate, make sure to check the schedule. There is a heated children's pool. The beach is pebbly and not ideal for walking barefoot, but you can bring water shoes. The water is clear, although in May it was still a bit cold for swimming. There is a covered playground with sand on the beach. The toilets near the beach were always clean and regularly maintained. The food offered at the hotel is diverse. Each day has a different theme, and there is always a selection of meat, fish, offal, and more. I won't list everything, you can see the photos. In addition to the main restaurant, there is a children's restaurant with baby food and a blender. Since we had a baby, I mixed food from the children's restaurant with the main buffet. I asked them to blend meat and vegetables for me. I didn't bring any food for the baby on the trip. There is a wide selection for tourists following dietary or vegan preferences. The a la carte restaurants have separate menus and require an additional fee. We didn't visit them as we were satisfied with the variety in the main buffet. The kids' club was enjoyable with friendly girls from different countries. They understand and speak Russian, and they interact well with children. The only thing is that in May, the water activities at the kids' playground were not yet available. I didn't notice anything critical, although some people might find it a bit boring. We didn't encounter any loud and drunken individuals. This hotel is for those who want a peaceful vacation, good cuisine, and a combination of sea and mountains. I will ensure that your stay is successful, and you have only good impressions from it!

Hello! I would like to express my immense gratitude to Akka Antedon hotel. The vacation was amazing. My husband and I checked into the hotel on the evening of July 17th, as newlyweds. We were greeted and taken care of our luggage (right from the bus before entering the hotel). The first thing that caught our eye was the huge lobby with incredibly high ceilings, a very mesmerizing sight. We completed the check-in process at the reception, received our cards, and were then escorted to the elevators. We stayed on the second floor of the main building, with a view of the sea, pools, and the children's playground from our window. The room had excellent sound insulation when the balcony door was closed, there were no external noises. The room was spacious, clean, and had new furniture. The bed was a comfortable double with a firm mattress (exactly what we needed!). Just 1 minute after checking in, our luggage was brought to us. During the vacation, minibar replenishment was daily or upon request through the hotel app (beer, cola, Sprite, Fanta, cold tea, water + they also brought straws and cookies). Housekeeping was provided daily or on request through the hotel app (very convenient and modern, but the app could use some improvement). They cleaned the bathroom once a week, but you could also call a staff member through the app, although we didn't need to, everything was in order. Towels were changed every day. The hotel grounds are very large, green, and clean, offering an amazing view of the mountains which felt within reach. The air is very clean and fresh. On the hotel grounds, there is a water park (it was open for 1 day, and closed the rest of the days, perhaps we just didn't notice that it was open on other days). The pool is very large and clean, and it was cleaned every evening. The water temperature was very comfortable. On the hotel grounds, we used two bars: one by the sea and one by the pool. The bar by the sea made excellent gözleme pancakes every day, although we sometimes had to wait in line, it was worth it. The bar had a huge selection of drinks for every taste. The bartenders were very friendly and welcoming, some of them spoke Russian, at least in terms of serving the guests. The food was also to everyone's taste, the grilled dishes deserve special attention. There was a variety of fish (grilled, boiled, and stewed - diet menu), as well as meat. The side dishes catered to everyone's taste (rice, potatoes, buckwheat, etc.). There was a huge selection of desserts, from traditional ones to incredibly delicious cakes. I want to specifically mention the incredibly delicious freshly squeezed orange juice (which had to be ordered with the waiters). There were a few not-so-good days (unrelated to the hotel), my husband suffered from a heatstroke and felt very unwell. The reception helped us call the insurance company and arrange for a car to take us to the hospital, for which we are very grateful! At the hospital, my husband received intravenous therapy and felt much better the next day. After that, I started feeling unwell (probably due to acclimatization), so we went to the doctor at the hotel (the fee was 3 dollars). The doctor gave me an injection and prescribed medicine, and by the evening I started feeling better. Everything passed in about a day. The hotel administration checked on our well-being every day, it was nice to receive such attention and care, thank you very much! The entertainment at the hotel was top-notch, there were performances every evening, and we even attended a disco on the pier once. The poolside entertainment during the day was excellent. We visited the spa twice - a big thanks to Islam for recommending and arranging the appointments for us. The massages were fantastic (we had one on the first day and one on the day of check-out). The spa atmosphere helped us relax and not think about anything other than rest. We absolutely loved our vacation and will definitely come back here again!

We stayed at Akka Antedon from July 1st to 2nd, 2022. We arrived late, so we were checked in immediately. The room, with no extra charge, had a luxurious side view of the sea and mountains. The room itself was spacious enough. It had bathrobes, slippers, a kettle, and a good minibar. However, the television was disappointing. There were only a couple of Russian channels and no music channels. The air conditioner was unreliable, sometimes working well and other times not. Overall, the room left a positive impression. Housekeeping was done daily. They didn't fold towels into swans, but the room was kept clean. However, there was one incident where a towel for the feet was put in the dirty towel basket, even though it was new. My spouse visited the spa center. The staff was very attentive, and the massage was professionally done. Everything was very enjoyable. The sea and surrounding nature were simply magnificent. The sea was calm, clear, and warm. You could enter from the pier or from the shore. Special footwear was not necessary. There was a junior club for kids aged 12 to 16. Davlet and Anya were great and our daughter loved them. In the kids' club (up to 12 years old), there was a large playground with water activities. The aqua park was very good. There were almost no queues, and both adults and children could enjoy the rides. The swimming pool was large and moderately deep. There were always available sunbeds by the sea and the pool. There were two bars on the premises. There were also fridges with juices and bottled drinks. The non-alcoholic drinks were great. Most of the alcoholic drinks were locally produced. Even the martini was a local brand. There was mostly whisky from imported brands. One type of tequila and rum. The lobby bar was the worst in the hotel. Bottles were displayed on shelves and you could order them for an extra fee (which we didn't expect with the premium all-inclusive package). However, it was practically always empty. Last year, we stayed at Elphin E Lue, which was cheaper than Akka Antedon, but there all alcoholic drinks were free (even pouring Quantro, not to mention martini). The food also didn't impress us. You wouldn't go hungry, but not all main dishes were tasty. The ingredients were good, but the preparation was average. There was a wide variety of fruits, but no strawberries and cherries only a couple of times. The food did not meet our expectations. The coffee shop was very enjoyable. They made delicious hot and cold coffee. The packaged ice cream from Magnat and Algida was very tasty. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Akka Antedon. However, we don't have the desire to return next year.

We stayed at this hotel from July 25th to August 5th, 22nd. The hotel is located in a very beautiful place, with the sea on one side and mountains on the other, and I really liked it. We chose this hotel based on recommendations for a "Premium" experience. Everything was in order. The hotel was fully booked, so check-in was not possible before 2 p.m. We arrived around 12 p.m., and the receptionists could barely speak Russian. It's surprising that with 6% of guests being Russian speakers, they couldn't find employees who speak Russian properly. They seem to be trying to avoid interacting with you because it's difficult for them. Furthermore, they also deceive guests. At first, they said they could extend our room (as we had a late check-out), but when we approached them to extend it, they said there were no rooms available. They should have just said they couldn't make any promises, instead of deceiving people. We had booked a standard room, but they placed us in a family room and separated it into two standard rooms, simply closing the door between them. Through this door, we could hear what was happening in the neighboring room, and they probably heard what was happening in our room too. This is not premium service, it's terrible! The only plus was that the storage room had scales for weighing luggage. I also highly recommend wrapping your luggage in plastic at the hotel, as it costs only $5, while it costs $1 at the airport. The reception's performance gets a -2 rating. The room cleaning and restocking of the bar (free beer, water, juices, soda) were done daily, and there were no issues with that. They get a rating of -5. The hotel grounds were nice, everything was tastefully done, and everything was conveniently located. The main restaurant exits to a green lawn on the lower ground, where there is a swimming pool, a bar, a snack restaurant, a café, a sweets house, à la carte restaurants, a towel replacement station, and the animation team. On one side, there are children's water attractions, and on the other side, there is a water park with a few decent slides (one was not working). The grounds were well-tended and green. Closer to the sea, there is another green lawn with hammocks and a second bar where they make Turkish bread. The pool is long, and foreigners mainly use it. Waiters on rollerblades serve the guests around the pool, which is an original idea. The grounds get a rating of -5. The animation team and kids' club do a good job, the guys try their best, and everyone can find something to do. They get a rating of -5. At the entrance to the beach, there are refrigerators with juice, soda, ayran, and water, so take as much as you need. The beach itself has sand mixed with pebbles, and the pebbles even sink under your feet, so it's not very comfortable. However, there are entry points to the sea, and in the middle, there is a pontoon that divides the beach in half. There are plenty of sunbeds for everyone, but as usual, many people reserve them with towels in the morning. It was surprising to me that in a premium hotel, people are allowed to smoke on the beach, even with children and other guests around, and the management doesn't do anything about it. Premium hotels only allow smoking in designated areas and strictly enforce it, but here, there is a "ashtray" smoking and affecting themselves, their children, and others. Moreover, in a premium service at the beach, either it is forbidden or the work of people who try to sell you something like massages or sea walks is restricted. People who choose premium service don't want to be bothered multiple times a day, so create a section of the beach where these sellers are not allowed, then it will truly be premium, not like it is now. Children sleep on the beach, and when the boats pass along the beach, they deliberately sound their sirens. How is this possible? The beach gets a rating of -2. The food at the hotel and the service in the restaurant are of a high standard, and you will definitely gain extra weight because the variety of dishes is excellent. The bars only serve high-quality imported alcohol (for example, Absolut vodka, Hennessy cognac, etc.). The food, service in the restaurant, and bars receive a solid 5 rating, a true premium experience. They're doing great, keep it up. They organize various parties in the evening, but I didn't attend them because we were going to Kemer and Antalya. When you leave the hotel, you can simply cross the road and take bus number 7, which will take you to Antalya for 22 lira directly to the 5M Migros store, where you can buy things that are not available in our country nowadays. The Mir card (I have Sberbank) works almost everywhere. Withdraw cash from ATMs, and you'll be happy. I only withdrew money from the Ziraat Bank ATM (it's red and white). You can withdraw 25 lira at once. When the ATM offers you options, just type in 25 on the keypad. Don't choose what the ATM suggests because the withdrawal fee is fixed, whether you withdraw 2 lira or 25 lira. So, withdraw the full amount at once. Also, in the ZARA store, only Tinkoff works or cash. You can return to the hotel on bus number 7. Take a look at the pharmacies; it's very profitable to bring some medicines and especially vitamins. I recommend coming with an empty suitcase and buying everything new here at very democratic prices. There were three of us on this trip, and we arrived with two practically empty suitcases. Here, we bought a third suitcase and many necessary items. When departing, pay attention to the TAX FREE if you want to get a refund. Leave for the airport about 7 hours before your flight because only one counter, number 211 I think, handles tax refunds, and there are many people who want to get their tax refunded. When you pass all the checks and enter the departure area of Antalya Airport, you will be shocked; there are just so many people, it's crazy. If you plan to buy something at the duty-free shop, leave for the airport in advance because there will be a crowd at the cash registers. Will I come back? Probably yes, to see if they have fixed the issues because it's clear that the hotel is being managed and improved. But for now, I can't call it premium; it's just a great 5-star hotel with quality alcohol. The hotel has room

Hello! I stayed at this hotel with my spouse and granddaughter from June 3rd to July 7th. The hotel is worthy based on its parameters and value for money. We flew in from Kazan in the morning and liked the paid option from Turkish Airlines (arrival in the morning, departure in the evening). The hotel was fully booked, so we had to wait until 2 o'clock. We didn't waste any time, changed clothes, and went to the beach after having breakfast. We had lunch at 12 o'clock and received our room, number 122, on the ground level where the reception is located. The room was nice, clean, and had decent furniture. It had everything we needed. Housekeeping was of good quality and not intrusive. Meanwhile, we went to the beach. The area of the hotel is wonderful, everything is well-maintained and operational, and you don't need to go far for anything. The view is very beautiful as the hotel is located at the foot of the mountains! The water park is also great, everything is clean and operational with a total of 7 slides. Next to the water park, there is an arena where shows take place. The beach is clean, although it's better to occupy good spots early in the morning, but you can always find a place. The entry into the sea is sandy and pebbly, so I recommend wearing water shoes for comfort. The sea is mostly clean, although occasionally, with a certain wind direction, it brings some garbage, but not for long. There are toilets, showers, and changing rooms available, and the bars work well and quickly. The bartenders are polite, and they serve quality alcohol for every taste. If you ask for it, they will give you Tuborg Gold beer in a bottle with 1% malt. The food is excellent. The greens are fresh, and you can make salads. The meat dishes, especially lamb and beef, braised ribs, were very good. Side dishes, tea, juice, and bread can be taken by yourselves, while the rest is behind the glass. The restaurant is clean and tidy, and the waiters really work instead of pretending to work. We ate at the beginning, I'm afraid to make a mistake with the name, but I think the woman who served us was named Aigulshat. She was an excellent worker! There are no problems with seating in the restaurant, everything is instantly cleaned up and laid out with cleanliness! The hotel staff is friendly and responsive, and there are no issues at all. I would like to highlight the employee Cansin at the reception, who skillfully solved any issues. In general, I liked the hotel. The combination of price and quality is excellent! Thank you for your time, Dmitry.

We stayed at the Akka Antedon hotel from July 3rd to July 12th, 2022, with two families. Previously, we considered this hotel for vacation about 5 times, but it always turned out that we chose another one for a similar price. And it turned out that our intuition did not deceive us, everything is understood and evaluated in comparison. Upon arrival, we were struck by the large and somewhat uncomfortable reception hall. The welcome table for guests was meager and not decorated. Since we arrived in the evening, the rooms were given to us immediately. The family room was not bad (we stayed in room 3113), it had everything we needed, but the finishing was a bit simple for a 5-star hotel. The bathroom had a shower and a bath with a shower, which was very convenient, but the water took about 3 minutes to drain after you finished the procedures. Contacting Guest Relations did not help, apparently the drains were clogged or the plumber never came. After visiting our friends' room in the main building, I once again realized that the rooms urgently need renovation. The hotel grounds are very beautiful and green, with hammocks, shady pines, and other plantations, bars, a coffee shop, and even a cat house. The fences made of railway tracks in some flowerbeds surprised me (maybe I don't understand something...). The water park is nice. The mini club is luxurious, with activities for children all day, including throughout the hotel grounds. Many thanks to all the mini club staff. However, the mini club only operates until 5:30 PM. The amphitheater is something I haven't seen in hotels for a long time. The chairs are almost without inclination, standing close to each other, with the DJ booth right there. In the back rows, you can either look at someone's back of the head or stand and peer out from behind the person in front of you. The shows are performed by visiting teams. The sea is crystal clear and gentle, the beach is sandy with pebbles, and you enter the sea on stones. The canopies are good and shady, and there are also paid tents for 15 and 8 euros per day. The cleanliness on the beach is rated 4 out of 5; we only saw them cleaning up the larger debris once. Calvin Klein underwear 😂 left by someone on the beach was lying on the sand for 3 days. But this partly depends on the tourists themselves, as "CLEANLINESS IS NOT WHERE THEY CLEAN, BUT WHERE THEY DON'T LITTER!" There are plenty of bars in the hotel, with good quality alcohol, two types of beer on tap and in bottles, chips, snacks, and nuts. The restaurant has enough seating, even during peak hours you can find a table. The food is good and decent, with three types of fish always available, lamb, beef, shrimp, crayfish, fruits, and piles of cherries (but they disappeared in the last days, probably due to the season...). We didn't get our favorite Mercimek Corbasi (lentil soup). Soups are the weakest link in the restaurant. The hotel staff is not bad, friendly, with some exceptions, as everywhere. I would like to mention Isana, a bartender who makes gözleme (a kind person who tries to speak Russian). Thank you to Islam from the SPA salon. AYLA, the always smiling lobby barman, is the kindest. Songul Olmez, who works in the bars and at breakfast in the restaurant, is also very kind. Thank you to the entire reception team. On the eve of departure, we approached the girl from Guest Relations and asked for a lunch box because we were being picked up from the hotel at 4 AM. She told us there were no lunch boxes in the hotel. We turned to the reception, and they said the restaurant is always open, so we could have a meal there (at 3-3 AM!!! to feed the child), but if we wanted, they could make us a lunch box. There is a representative of Coral Travel in the hotel, Elman. We paid him for an individual transfer to the airport in a 7-seater car, booking it for the 4th. When we went down to the reception at 4:1, we were surprised to see a large bus with tourists waiting for us. The representative of Coral called the office immediately that night, and they were surprised by the individual transfer. P.S. We did not go looking for flaws, especially since they exist in all even expensive hotels. I think my review will be useful to someone, and the hotel will take note of the negatives. Overall, the hotel has a soul, and we will gladly return to Akka for a reasonable price.

Amazing over the past 4 years of traveling to good 5* hotels - the service is exceptional. All the waiters without exception are courteous and pleasant. You will never be left without tea and coffee in the morning or without wine or another drink during the day or at dinner. The same goes for the snack restaurant, beach bar, etc. There is no need to run after anyone, stand in line, give $5 and ask for something. I have very pleasant memories of the waiter at the main restaurant, Hikmet, and the beach bar waitress, Sanneia. The hotel has an excellent spa salon. I don't want to list the hotel's disadvantages but I will clarify. The pebble beach is not suitable for small children, it is better to bring water shoes. Parents carry their young children into the water, they cry, hang on the handrails for entering the water, and obstruct the passage on the special ladder for everyone else. It is more convenient for everyone to buy water shoes, swim from the pier, or sit in the pool. The food is diverse. It includes beef, chicken, kebabs, braised meat, both white and red fish, shrimp, and crayfish, but everything is somehow not right: either too spicy, salty, or hot. The cakes, fruits, and ice cream are very good. It is more convenient to eat in the snack restaurant where everything is served to you, rather than in the main restaurant where you have to run with plates. There is a diet and children's menu. It is difficult to be hungry and sober. For breakfast, there are omelets, porridge, yogurt, and other things. Overall, everything is quite good. Cherries, strawberries, melons, watermelons... But it feels a bit stressful, like everything is there, you eat a lot, but something is missing and it's not satisfying... You leave feeling full but unsatisfied. But this is more of a personal feeling. The rooms are cleaned well, the bar is always stocked even without tips sometimes. The towels and bedding are impeccable. The evening shows are more suitable for 35+. There are Turkish nights, circus and dance performances, Mr./Ms. hotel, but there is also a disco once a week on the pier, which is quite lively. There is almost nothing for teenagers. We were expecting a crossbow and an air rifle as advertised on different pages of the hotel, like in Limak Atlantis. But we didn't find them, unfortunately. Only a busy table tennis in the wind. My 16-year-old son played darts with adults for a little while, but my 14-year-old son was bored. They didn't let my son and husband into the teenage club, saying they curse, and my sons didn't want to go without each other. It was also difficult to find a group or company for them. We never saw the animator for this age group in 10 days. The hotel is big and the grounds are beautiful. We paid 436,000 in 4 days in June 2022. It feels like a lot of money, but we are still satisfied. There is a very good water park on the hotel grounds. It's a 5! Live music is played either in the outdoor bar or in the lobby, but it is not professional. You can listen to it if you pass by. There is always ice cream available, and the confectionery is excellent. On the beach, there is water, tea, soda in cans and bottles. The beach is clean, and all the sunbeds are occupied by 11 am, this is common. It is a very good hotel for a calm and leisurely vacation. I will definitely go again!

The hotel was chosen based on the recommendation of my cousin, who had already stayed there twice and highly recommended it. We booked a Family room Sea View, which are two-level family rooms. Prior to departure, I contacted the hotel via email and requested a room where the double bed would be located on the lower level (based on reviews and photos, I understood that there were different options). The hotel responded very quickly (within 3-4 hours) and informed us that our request had been accommodated :). Upon arrival at the hotel (around 9 pm), we were asked to fill out COVID questionnaires and were immediately given the keys to room 252. No one escorted us to the room, they simply showed us where the elevator was :) The room turned out to be gigantic with a full second floor, two full bathrooms, and a huge balcony with breathtaking views of the sea and mountains. The room had everything we needed, even scales to monitor our weight after the Ultra All-Inclusive meals :) We were able to weigh our luggage on the scales before departure, and there was no difference compared to the airport scales. The minibar was replenished daily with non-alcoholic drinks and beer. The housekeeping was a bit strange, as it seemed that the same chambermaids were responsible for cleaning. In the evening, my children accidentally broke a glass on the balcony, and although it was cleaned up the next day, it seemed like no one had actually gone onto the balcony because the shards were still there until we complained to the reception. The hotel has its own mobile application where you can request room cleaning (I specified the desired time and saw that the chambermaids wrote it down on their schedules), replenish the minibar, report technical issues, and order à la carte restaurant services. It is a very convenient feature. The guest service department always calls to inquire about the resolution of any request made through the application. The hotel grounds are compact and very green, surrounded by pine trees, and it's almost always possible to find some shade. The beach is spacious, with a non-smoking area on the left side. There are plenty of sunbeds, but the entrance to the water is a bit rocky and difficult to walk on barefoot. However, there is a ramp for a smoother entry, and there is also a large pier with sunbeds and multiple water entrances. Coolers with drinks (juices, water, ayran, lemonades) are available throughout the grounds. The bars offer high-quality and varied alcoholic beverages, and they make great cocktails. The main restaurant is large, and there is almost always enough seating. Every evening for dinner, they focus on different national cuisines (Italian, Mexican, Turkish, etc.), which is announced before entering. There is also outdoor grilling. The food is diverse, including meat (beef, lamb), poultry (chicken, turkey), a wide variety of fish, plenty of vegetables and fruits, and baked goods. The staff is very friendly, communicative, and always smiling. The atmosphere in the hotel is very homely and welcoming. There are shops on both sides of the hotel's exit, and just a 1-minute walk to the left, there is an Eniz bank ATM where you can withdraw Turkish lira using a Mir card. However, the currency is not really required as all the shops, pharmacies, and small stores near the hotel, as well as the hotel itself, accept Mir cards for payment. I really liked the way the hotel treated its guests, its stunningly beautiful location, and its excellent service.

About the territory. It is green, well-maintained, and diverse. Even with a large number of guests, there is always a quiet spot to be found. The cleanliness is meticulously maintained, with nothing to complain about. The beach is sandy-pebbled, and aqua shoes are necessary. Cold drinks and ice cream are always available. The bar made my favorite Mai Tai cocktail perfectly, so I instantly give the hotel +1 point))) The sea during our stay was clean and calm, pure enjoyment. We only tried a three-hour boat excursion for water activities: exploring caves, paragliding from the boat, and swimming in a bay. Overall, it was excellent. There is a shaded playground for small children on the beach, but I found it quite boring. About the room. We had a room on the ground floor with a balcony overlooking the inner courtyard, green terrace, and restaurant. The drawbacks were occasional noise from the ventilation system. The advantages were direct sunlight in the windows only in the early morning, making the balcony and room comfortable throughout the day. The room was spacious for two adults and a child. It had everything we needed, from bathrobes to a mini-bar. A potty, a child's stand, and an iron were provided immediately upon request. The bed linen and mattresses were great. My suggestion to the hotel is to update the bathrooms themselves as they were quite outdated and not pleasant for a relaxing bath. About the main restaurant. The service is very attentive and friendly! As for the cuisine, I really liked the dishes cooked on the grill outside, especially the fish. The themed dinners (Italian, Asian, etc.) were enjoyable, although some dishes needed improvement. Especially the sushi/rolls (they were simply not good, sorry). Everything closer to the national Turkish cuisine was excellent! We missed the kids' club somehow. We liked the children's playground with water games and sprinklers. The aqua park was fantastic. Our child, who was almost four years old, easily mastered all the slides (with adult supervision, of course) and was extremely happy. The area with arcade machines needs urgent attention, guys. It's not suitable at all. It's like a fly in the ointment. We missed the evening animation, just like the kids' activities (we're not big fans at all), so we have no feedback on that. What's nice is that it didn't interfere with anything. I want to separately mention the SPA area and services. On the first day, I tried the hammam + peeling + foam massage + full body massage complex. It felt like being born again! The massage therapist Ferhat is a true professional. After the first session, we agreed on a five-day course of therapeutic massage for my poor computer-inflicted back. The massage is very gentle, but where needed, it's firm and precise. I recommend Ferhat for excellent results. Summarizing all the impressions, it's a wow! The friendliness and service are so inviting that the minor flaws simply don't matter. Akka Antedon has shown me the Turkish hospitality. The vacation was perfect! Thank you. P.S. Sberbank MIR cards are accepted throughout the hotel's territory.

We stayed at a hotel in August 222 and I decided to leave a review, albeit a late one, because the hotel truly deserves attention and a high rating. Rooms. Our room was, for the first time, without a sea view (we always chose rooms with a view) and I was pleasantly surprised by the convenience of such rooms. Firstly, it was located on the first floor, making it easily accessible without elevators (although I didn't see any long queues near the elevators), and secondly, it was quiet. No screams from the pool, daytime animation, or evening show music. The rooms themselves were a bit worn out, as we witnessed upon check-in (although they checked us in closer to 3 pm) - they were repairing the light fixtures, changing mattresses, and fixing a broken chair. But the air conditioning and plumbing worked properly. The room was cleaned well, the bed and towels were changed daily, and the minibar was replenished daily as well. This is one of the few hotels where you can extend your room on the day of departure even when it's fully booked, as the hotel has several windowless rooms specifically used for this purpose, which is very convenient. Food. The food was delicious and varied. For breakfast, they served red fish, various cheeses, including those with noble mold. For lunch and dinner, they grilled meat and fish, and served fruits (including dragon fruit), watermelons, and melons - everything was sweet and tasty. There was a separate dining area for children (located near the mini club) with children's dishes and small chairs and tables. The desserts were also to everyone's taste. The coffee in the main restaurant wasn't tasty, but there was a cafe on the premises that served a wide variety of coffee to guests' liking from 1 to 11 pm. The bartenders there were very friendly and pleasant. Between main meals, they prepared burgers, hot dogs, occasionally served fruits, and had ice cream available on the beach. Almost all the drinks were bottled, which was also very pleasing. The hotel had a large territory with several pools that smoothly transitioned into one another, great slides for entertainment, and plenty of sunbeds for everyone. The entrance to the sea was stony, but there was a carpet laid out along the shoreline, so it was possible to walk without slippers, although I personally found it more comfortable to wear them. The sea was clean, although not crystal clear, and mostly calm in the mornings. There were small fish with dots on their tails that could bite, but they didn't bother me, although my husband complained about them. Entertainment. The hotel had good entertainment for both adults and children. They entertained adults with poolside games, barrels, and evening shows (some of which I genuinely enjoyed watching). I want to specifically mention the kids' club, where you could leave your child - it was marvelous! The club operated from 1 pm to 6 pm and resembled a kindergarten - the children were engaged in various activities and even taken outside the hotel premises (for example, to a dinosaur park), the only exception being mealtime when the child ate with their parents. My husband and I were able to go diving for 2 hours and even do some shopping in Antalya (our child was at the club for 3.5 hours) - it was very convenient! In the evenings, before the adult entertainment, there was a mini disco. Excursions. We took a mini excursion to the birthplace of St. Nicholas and the Lycian tombs. The tour bus was just for one person, and overall, everything was well organized. It was informative and interesting, considering the long journey and packed schedule. I recommend it. On the way back, of course, they took us to some shops with unimaginable prices for Turkish delight and other trinkets (a 2 kg box of Turkish delight for $1!), the main thing is not to buy anything out of hunger or fatigue. I was truly satisfied with my stay at this hotel. It is located in a picturesque place and offers a high level of service, allowing you to relax and enjoy yourself. This would be the first hotel in Turkey that I would probably consider returning to.

We rested in January 222. We came here for the second time because we knew that everything here is well thought out to the smallest detail. The restaurant is clean and beautiful, with a variety of dishes to suit every taste. Everyone smiles at you. The hotel is large with a huge territory. In the room, we were greeted with a gift - fruits and a bottle of wine. The room was sufficient to relax comfortably. The temperature was 22-26 degrees, and some people were swimming. The pool is open. The beach is clean. And the nature... it's simply marvelous! Mountains, fir trees, sea... Thank you to everyone who made our vacation wonderful!

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Akka Antedon from September 15th to 27th in the year 222. We had a very good experience during our vacation. We arrived at the hotel at 9 o'clock in the morning and were greeted by the hotel staff who provided comfortable seats for us to relax and took care of our luggage. The check-in process was very fast. Considering our age, they promised to accommodate us in a vacant room at 12 o'clock. They suggested that we have breakfast at the restaurant while waiting. We would like to express our gratitude to the reception staff, CIHAN and ACPER, for their attentive and respectful treatment of the hotel guests. Our room was located on the second floor of the right wing of the hotel. The balcony had a wonderful view of the beautiful mountains and the sea. The room was cozy and clean, and housekeeping was done daily. The minibar and toiletries were replenished daily as well. The hotel grounds were very well maintained, and everything was designed for the comfort of the guests. There was a café, a tea house, a snack bar, a pastry shop, and a large swimming pool on the premises. The beach was within walking distance and equipped with excellent large tents. The beach chairs were all new, and for a reasonable fee, you could rent a tent with comfortable loungers. The entrance to the sea was equipped with a pathway and railings, but it was more convenient to enter with water shoes or from the pier. The overall dining experience could have been better. The quality of fruits, vegetables, cheese, fish, and soups was good, but the meat was usually poorly cooked and tough. If you have any questions, you can approach the reception staff. Darina is a professional who works very attentively with the hotel guests. Overall, it was a wonderful vacation if you don't look for negative experiences. I recommend the hotel for a peaceful family vacation.

We stayed at the hotel from 13.1. to 24.1. with two families with 3-year-old children. The cost came out to be 35. We stayed in the main building (rooms 1312 and 1322). I won't write about the flight and transfer because they are not relevant to the hotel. Pros: 1. Two heated children's swimming pools and water slides (the vacation is focused on children in general); 2. Good children's cafe; 3. Excellent kids' club for children of all ages; 4. Beautiful and clean sea; 5. Efficient waiters and cleaners; 6. Ironing boards with irons, children's bathrobes, potties, and cribs are provided upon request. Cons: 1. The food is varied, but my personal tastes and those of my loved ones were not thrilled; 2. Persistent representatives of the spa center and beach entertainments, photographers, who do not correspond to the hotel's level; 3. There is a mosque nearby with prayers every two hours starting at 6 am. Early waking is guaranteed; 4. The elevators in the main building are one of the main problems - either one is working or none (if you are waiting with a stroller, you might not get lucky); 5. Imported alcohol is served if you mention it, if you don't, you will be served the local equivalent; 6. The entertainment for adults is VERY weak (super for children). P.S. Choose your hotel carefully, as vacations are now not cheap and unfortunately not common.

The reviewer did not provide an extensive description of their stay at the hotel. I would like to share my impression of my stay at the hotel in more detail.

I won't write a lot, as this is my third time at this hotel and I suppose it speaks for itself. Those interested can read earlier reviews about the hotel. But I am very pleased that since my last visit, the service and infrastructure have only improved, which is the most important thing in my opinion. Of course, the hotel itself is not new, and those who expect luxury in the decor like in hotels built within the past 2+ years shouldn't expect it here. Everything is at a 5-star level, of course, but as they say, everything has its time and not everything can be modernized and restored. However, its location, green area, service staff, and food outweigh all these flaws for some people. In short, the price and quality correspond. Enjoy your stay!

What we liked: 1. The territory. It is surrounded by greenery and seems large because of the stunning pool with bridges that curves throughout the area, a small pool for children, cozy spots, green lawns, and a large water park. The dining area, overlooking the sea with small cafes, creates the impression of a small southern town. In short, bravo to the creator of such beauty, we didn't even want to leave. 2. The sea and the beach. The beach is small compared to hotels in Side and Alanya, where we usually vacation with our grandchildren. It is divided into two parts by a pier. If you face the sea, the left side of the pier has smaller pebbles, but it is better to enter the water wearing swim shoes. On the right side of the pier, there is a wide bridge with railings. You can wade in up to your chest and swim. By 9 am, almost all the sun loungers are occupied and they are quite close together. On the third day, we started using the sun loungers by the pool, especially since the sea is just a stone's throw away. There is a great pier where you can dive and descend to the sea using the stairs. The biggest advantage is the lack of waves. It was stormy for a couple of days. The wave height was less than 0.5m. During the same time in Side, the waves were over 1m. 3. The room. Despite the hotel's age, we really liked the room. We communicated with the hotel through the app in advance. Our request for a quiet room was fulfilled, for which we are very grateful. The room had a mountain view on the third floor. It was large, cozy, with comfortable beds, and excellent linens. The cleaning was top-notch. Everything worked fine. The refrigerator was restocked. It was nice that right after our check-in, the reception called us to confirm if everything was satisfactory. What we didn't like. The food, like in all five-star hotels in Turkey. Meat, fish, salads, porridge, and soups every day. What unpleasantly surprised us was the limited portions of some dishes (including fruits, vegetables, greens, and cheese, which were behind glass). It was inconvenient to ask the staff for more than the limited portions, such as four cherry tomatoes instead of two, or three slices of cheese instead of two. And to see them shaking their heads with disapproval. Only in the main restaurant is it evident that the hotel is full, especially during dinner. We tried to come at different times, but it was sometimes difficult to find an available table. The hotel is geared towards families with young children. In our opinion, about 80% of the guests were families with kids, ranging from infants to 5-6 years old. So, be prepared for screams and squeals. We didn't like the slippery tiles by the pool and in the hotel's courtyard. Overall, we are satisfied with our stay at the hotel. We may come back again in the future.

Hello! I am writing another review about the All-Union sanatorium in Turkey. Today we came home and I want to share my impressions right away. The hotel was recommended by an excellent manager from Tez Tour, and I trust her just as much as myself. Let's start with the good: the alcohol was top-notch, all imported, nothing to discuss. The cleanliness throughout the hotel was commendable! The room was spotless, shining everywhere, not a speck of dust on the mirrors or the TV. The staff was responsive and well-trained. The nature and the territory were all wonderful. Now, onto what we didn't like: we arrived early, and with 2 American rubles, we managed to check in early because flying with Turkish Airlines at 2 AM was not a pleasant experience. The rooms on the first floor, from 1125 to 114, overlooked a school and a place where they prepared grills for the restaurant. The smell and the noise from the children, along with the prayer on the loudspeaker, were guaranteed for you. We are not confrontational people, so we simply didn't open the balcony. There was a shower curtain in the bathroom, and a plastic box inserted in the bathtub, probably just so they wouldn't have to replace the bathtub itself. The rooms were worn out, but clean. The hotel had carpeting everywhere, and as you can imagine, its cleanliness left something to be desired. The food was the same as in similar hotels, but I personally missed seafood. There were no crayfish or shrimps, and even the calamari were only available once a week! Another big negative for us was the huge number of children at the end of October! It was just unbearable - strollers everywhere, and children of all ages, even less than a month old! It may be related to the fact that there was a heated pool outside where parents sat with their children for hours. Another major drawback was the single staircase into the water on the pier, where eight people sunbathed! And now the icing on the cake: children diving from the pier and immediately climbing back up the stairs for the next dive into the sea! And this carousel was constantly happening! Getting in and out of the sea from the pier was a problem! How difficult would it be to add two more staircases? A question to the hotel! I will add some more details: women's descent and ascent on the stairs was a struggle, taking a considerable amount of time to fix their bikinis right on the steps, testing the water temperature with their pinky fingers, and even taking photos there! As an alternative, you can enter from the beach, just don't forget your flip-flops - the pebbles are large! Well, I won't write about smoking - whether it's a smoking-free area or not, no one will read it anyway! People were smoking right next to the playground on the beach! Well, now you know where they come from. In conclusion, I want to say that I will not go there again, that's for sure. There were too many children for me. But I recommend it for families with kids!

We stayed at the hotel with my wife and two granddaughters from 14.9 to 27.9 222 (for the 12th time in Turkey). We stayed at NIRVANA OLCE VITA 5* and ULUSOY KEMER HOLIDAY CLUB HV-1 hotels. There is something to compare it with. Akka Antedon is an excellent hotel! We arrived at the hotel at 12. Well done, guys at the reception! They work quickly and efficiently (all hotel staff speak Russian)! Special thanks to Alper, a reception employee!! Thank you, Alper!!!! He checked us in in 15 minutes! We stayed in room 331, a two-room family room. The room was excellent, with two balconies - one facing the sea and the other facing the mountains... The view was magnificent. The room was cleaned every day, it was clean and tidy. The minibar was constantly restocked. The hotel grounds are amazing! Everything is surrounded by pine trees. There is a huge pool throughout the hotel grounds (like a river) with bridges. There are refrigerators with drinks on the grounds (Coca-Cola, Fanta, water, four types of juices, sparkling water (lemon and regular), cold tea (strawberry, lemon), canned and bottled Tuborg Gold beer. The sea is clean and warm, with small to medium pebbles. The staff is friendly and attentive! The services are well-organized and they respond to feedback instantly! The food was delicious, with beef ribs, lamb, crabs, and crayfish. In my opinion, the fish was not that great, and the chef fries it too dry. There were not many desserts, but there were eclairs and almond pastries. The alcoholic drinks (I had semi-sweet pomegranate wine) were tastier than in other hotels!!! There were three types of imported whiskey, cognac, vermouth, and tequila. For children, there is an amazing kids' club!! It's SUPER!! The club has a large indoor area and water activities outside. The children are fully supervised!! The children's animators (teachers) are fantastic. Thank you so much, girls!!! Especially Anastasia!! This hotel is perfect for family vacations!!!! I highly recommend it!!!! Thank you, Akka Antedon, for the great vacation!!!!

I have been staying at this hotel for the seventh time now, and I have the impression that the service, if not getting worse, is definitely getting simpler. Last year, Hennessy disappeared from the bars. For someone accustomed to having a glass of Hennessy before dinner, switching to Martell was a heavy blow. It has a completely different taste. But I understand the administration's perspective. Due to coronavirus, they had to hire additional waiters and needed to save on something. They saved on cognac. It's hard to accept, but these days the world is in crisis, everyone is struggling, everyone is making sacrifices. We will endure as well. But this year, the shooting range with air rifles disappeared and it's impossible to explain this as an economical decision - it is a cheap form of entertainment. People gathered for the shooting not just for those 3-5 shots, but for the social interaction. A certain group used to gather - hunters, former athletes. It was like a club based on common interests. And now it's gone, which is a shame. Also, the "parade of green-shirts" disappeared, where a group of beautiful, lively animators in their bright green uniforms would walk along the beach at 1 am, greeting the guests. I only found out about this "parade" a week into my vacation, when a few gloomy-looking people in white and gray uniforms, more suitable for waiters, walked along the beach. Their appearance reminded me of migrant workers at construction sites in Moscow. I don't want to offend anyone - they might be wonderful people, but the job of an animator requires certain physical attributes. In the past, they were slender girls who stood out among the sunburnt vacationers, and their vibrant uniforms complemented the experience. Their appearance brought joy to the eyes and stirred thoughts of a carefree vacation. The current animators' appearance only brings to mind the arduous work of construction workers (I used to be one, so I know what I'm talking about). A little off-topic, about water sports. The Turkish lira is falling, but the prices for water sports in dollars increase every year. I asked these boatmen how this could be, and they replied that they offer discounts if asked. It immediately reminded me of a scene from a movie, where a character said, "I will kill you, boatman!" It's quite strange - raising prices just to offer discounts. Okay, enough grumbling (I guess it's appropriate at 62 years old), now onto the good things. The work of the waiters hasn't worsened, if anything, it has gotten even better. That's pleasing. Special thanks to the bartenders. If before they could refuse to make a cocktail not on the approved list, now they make whatever the customer orders. They make all cocktails they know, and even ones they don't. Sometimes they make mistakes with the ingredients, but I appreciate their effort. Other than that, everything is the same as before - the rooms, the food, the service, the sea, and the magnificent view of the mountain. After a hard year of work, I will go back to the warm sea to relax in the spring. Where? Naturally, to AKKU.

We vacationed as a family with an 8-month-old baby and we liked everything. There were purees in jars and instant cereals for the baby. The fruits were always fresh. The adult food was diverse, with a lot of meat. We rented a cabana on the beach, which was super convenient. The waiter brought everything directly there. The alcohol was imported and honest. There is a coffee shop with very delicious coffee and pastries. This hotel is not suitable for parties and young people. There are many families with children. We did not participate in the animation activities.

avatar

We arrived at the hotel at 6 in the morning. Since the hotel was fully booked, we were checked in at 2 o'clock. Breakfast. The juice was slightly diluted with water. On the first day, there were figs, but the selection of fruits was limited the rest of the days, with mandarins on the last day. The buffet table was mostly covered with glass, and the food was served by waiters. Many people liked this, but I found it inconvenient. Lunch was also quite modest. However, you could always find something delicious, although the selection was limited. The desserts were particularly enjoyable. There was always a chocolate fountain, but there were no skewers. Dinner was better, with a different theme every day. The waiters were very friendly and attentive. We went to the à la carte restaurant three times. We enjoyed every visit; the service was always excellent! The food was much tastier than in the hotel restaurant. Waiter Seyfi served us in the "Pasha" à la carte restaurant. He is the best waiter in the hotel in my opinion ¸ᦋ Regarding the accommodation, we were given Room 113 on the first floor (which was actually like the third floor). The room was spacious, but the toilet and bathtub were dirty with other people's hair. The sink was clogged, and water was leaking from the pipe below. We called reception, and they promptly fixed everything. There were no further issues, and the cleaning was done well. On the second day, they brought us fruits and wine as it was our second time at the hotel. The spa had a very dirty jacuzzi. When you ran your finger along the wall, it was dirty. We immediately left. The beach had sun loungers placed very close to each other. The sea and mountains were very beautiful. The area was well-maintained and beautiful. There was a children's playground. The animation team was not intrusive. There seemed to be a lot of activities for children. Our 1.5-year-old baby did not get bored. The bartenders always made the same cocktail differently. They often got annoyed when you ordered a specific brand of alcohol. Hennessy, Bacardi, and Jack Daniels (with flavors) were charged. The bartenders at the lobby bar made better cocktails, probably because they had less of a workload. Unfortunately, almost always in the evening, they ran out of Martell cognac. It would be nice if they paid attention to that and increased the daily quantity of this drink))) Beach towels were only changed in one place, which was inconvenient since the area was large. However, you could change them as much as you needed. Packaged ice cream was given out by waiters. It would be more convenient to serve yourself and have a refrigerator with ice cream near the beach. For lunch, you could eat at the snack cafe by the sea. The waiters served there. The pizza was delicious, and everything else was tasty too. The hotel actively addressed guest complaints and promptly resolved problems. They always tried to be helpful.

My husband and I spent a week at Akka Antedon from April 16th to 23rd. This was our first time at this hotel. It was a peaceful, calm, and family-oriented vacation. The grounds, rooms, and service were commendable. The cleanliness and well-maintained grounds were impressive. The staff was attentive and caring. The views of the mountains and sea were breathtaking. I have never encountered such high-quality and diverse food anywhere else. Lamb, beef, turkey, chicken, three types of fish, a variety of fruits (strawberries, grapefruits, bananas, oranges, pears, apples), and vegetables were available. Everything was fresh and delicious. The desserts and cakes melted in your mouth. The coffee at the Preto café was magnificent and diverse. In summary, I highly recommend it.

My mom and I vacationed here in September 222, and it was our second time visiting. After comparing it to all the other hotels we've been to before, we unanimously concluded that Akka Antedon is the best!!! Although the others were also excellent 5-star hotels with ratings no less than 4.6. The hotel's grounds are very beautiful, with lots of greenery and fluffy pine trees (we always had lunch outside at a table under them). The pavilions are beautifully decorated in a traditional Turkish style, and the pools make you feel incredibly cozy, like you're in a fairytale! The cuisine is beyond praise! The dinner theme changes every evening, with dishes from various countries, plenty of fish, seafood, and always a grill. The level of service and responsiveness from the staff and waiters is remarkable! All requests were fulfilled immediately, with a genuine desire to help and wishes for a good vacation! We are especially grateful to the receptionist Şihan (I hope I read the name on his badge correctly), we approached him many times and were left satisfied! The beach stretches for a long distance, and there is always plenty of space on the beach and in the sea. The water is transparent and turquoise, and you can see fish at the bottom! There were always enough sunbeds, even though some holidaymakers always rush to reserve their spots early. The mountain near the hotel is very beautiful, and the view of it is breathtaking. While swimming in the sea, you can admire the mountains! You can't find that in other regions! There is plenty of entertainment for everyone's taste, yoga, gymnastics, aqua aerobics, volleyball, etc. Every evening there is a entertaining show, a disco, so there's never a dull moment! There are many families with children and adults, so it's a great vacation spot for people of all ages. In summary, it's a large, beautiful, and stunning hotel! We regret that we went to other places before, because we wanted to compare! We heard the same opinion from other vacationers. We are grateful for the amazing vacation, and we will only go here in the future!

Translated text: We stayed at the hotel in August 222 AD from August 2nd to 29th. 1. About the hotel. The territory is very green and well-maintained. There are many courtyards with gazebos and terraces, a reception area with a great selection of drinks. There is a pool for adults and children. 2. Room. Everything is clean, room cleaning is done every day. It is clean. 3. Food. The food is varied and there is plenty of it. Fruits such as peaches, nectarines, apples, pears, grapes, and even figs were available. Coffee is served in a separate gazebo and it is very delicious. Shawarma, pizza, salads, and soup are served in a separate gazebo close to the sea. Waffles are cooked in another gazebo and you can also enjoy desserts during the day. 4. Beach. Getting into the sea is a bit difficult with the pebbles at first. Some people wear special footwear. There are always enough sunbeds. There is a pier and special entrances to the sea from the beach, everything is very convenient. It can be challenging in the first few days, but then you get used to it. There are also 2 large pools on the territory and an aquapark with a few slides - even adults can have fun riding them! 5. Entertainment - Wonderful and interesting dance shows and different groups, disco on the pier. After the entertainment, there is live music for a cup of coffee/tea or a glass of something stronger. We really liked it. Thanks to the hotel staff. They are always smiling and speak Russian. We had Pegas. This is where I was disappointed; the transfer and escort services deteriorated.

My family and I stayed from the 5th to the 12th of September. We arrived at night and were immediately checked in. The room was nice, although I'm not sure if it was old or not. In many hotels in Turkey, the rooms are the same, but ours was a two-story one. They cleaned it almost every day. As for the food, everything was available, although it was mostly the same. However, you can have your fill. We liked the hotel, it was very good, although the evenings were a bit boring. There weren't entertainment programs every night, only once there was a disco on the pier, and they performed a couple of times in the amphitheater. If you enjoy evening entertainment, it's best to go to Antalya. The hotel also has a club, but there is no one there.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was located at the foot of the mountain, offering magnificent views. It would appeal to those who value beautiful surroundings such as pine trees, mountains, and abundant vegetation, but may not be suitable for those who prioritize fresh renovations and well-maintained rooms. There were plenty of locations for taking photos, and the hotel grounds even reminded us a bit of Greece. While there were some issues with the hotel, we were aware of them when choosing to stay here, so we were prepared. Once the hotel undergoes renovations, it will be fantastic, but the price will also be different. For those who care, we stayed in room 2316, which had a view of the hotel entrance and the tennis court on the right side, away from the noise. We liked it, and the view of the mountains was a plus. The quietest rooms are in that area. The beach was beautiful and spacious, divided into two zones. There were always available spots, though in the morning, the first and second rows were usually taken. However, there were always free sun loungers after lunch when many people left. There were some large rocks at the entrance, but then it was clear. The sun set around 5:30-5:40 pm, and we would leave the beach by then. I cannot comment on the pool as we did not use it. Regarding the food, everything was excellent. The breakfast options were diverse, including different types of eggs, omelets, cereals (specifically buckwheat, rice, and oatmeal), gözleme (Turkish pie) with various fillings, vegetables, salads, a variety of green salads, different types of olives, cheeses (the blue cheese was delicious!), tuna, red fish, and other seafood, tasty sausages, pancakes, honey, Nutella, various jams and sauces, halva, Turkish delight, dried fruits, and fruits (the figs and peaches were particularly tasty). Waffles were also available, but they were not as appealing as the pancakes, as they were made from the same batter. There was fresh orange juice. There was plenty of pastries, and the tastiest ones were the small croissants, simits, and chocolate buns. The cafeteria opened at 9 am, and there was an amazing barista working there - a slim dark-haired girl. Unfortunately, we did not get to know her name, but she was charismatic, talkative, quickly remembered our favorite drinks, and was always welcoming and cheerful. It was always a pleasure to visit. The Antedon liquor drink was very delicious. Lunch consisted of two types of soup, always plain boiled rice, mashed potatoes, french fries, pizza, several types of pasta, various hot meat and fish dishes. They grilled different parts of chicken outside, as well as kebabs, depending on the day. There was always fish available, and the standard options included vegetables, salads, desserts, and fruits. Additionally, you could have lunch at the snack bar from 11 am to 4 pm, where gözleme was served if I am not mistaken. Dinner was themed every night (international, Mexican, Italian, etc). There was a wide variety of grilled dishes outside, regular hot dishes inside the restaurant building, a great selection of cheeses, and we particularly enjoyed the beef tongue. The service provided by the waiters during dinner was excellent. However, it was just average during breakfast and lunch, with no one rushing. There were no issues with alcohol in this hotel as they had everything - Chivas, Ballantine's, Jim Beam, tequila, rum, vodka, Baileys, and many more. They were all imported, and the pomegranate and blackberry wines were particularly delicious, probably local. The mojitos and gin and tonics were very tasty. The packaged ice cream and the scoop ice cream were both delicious. The Beldibi village itself is very quiet and peaceful. There is a good pharmacy nearby with Russian-speaking employees. You just have to leave the hotel, cross the road, and walk a bit to the left. There is also a textile shop nearby, but I would not recommend it as their prices are sky-high. However, if you cross the road from the hotel and go to the right and walk a bit further, you will find an excellent family shop across the Rixos Hotel, run by a pleasant father and son. The prices there were much lower, and we stocked up on textiles. We decided not to go to Antalya and Kemer as you can buy vitamins, medicine, Turkish delight, halva, and textiles in this village. We enjoyed the evening shows, apart from the boho party and the music at the snack bar after the show. You should change the DJ for that. It was terrible! Everyone was dissatisfied, with some people asking the waiters to change the music, and others quietly expressing their discontent. This music does not suit the clientele that you have. As soon as the music was changed, people immediately became more lively and started dancing. The boho party was an attempt to make something very trendy, but it did not work at all for at least 8% of the people, as they left immediately. The music was horrible. Please consider who is staying at your hotel and make the necessary adjustments. There were very few couples without children aged 3-35 years. Many people return to this hotel, whether it's their fifth or first time. I think that says something - it's cozy, beautiful, and friendly. We also plan to return.

We stayed at Akka Antedon from July 29th to August 12th, with our son and spouse. It was our first time at Akka Antedon. For the past 5 years, we have consistently stayed at Alva Donna World Palace. To be honest, we didn't like the hotel in the first few days... The hotel grounds were not cozy, the rooms were tired-looking, there was high humidity, etc, etc. But, all the rough edges were smoothed out by the friendly and welcoming staff. Lobby bar: Ayla, the bartender, is so positive, responsive, and kind! She makes amazing cocktails, and the presentation is just perfect. Irem and Ahmet Can, the waiters at the lobby bar, serve with such speed and most importantly, with a twinkle in their eyes! Main restaurant: Murat S., the waiter at the main restaurant, is the most smiling waiter I have ever come across. It's very pleasant! Mereym Anne makes incredible güzleme, and she is so kind! The Guest Relations girls help solve all the questions. We called the call center every time to check if the issues were resolved and if everything was okay. They didn't leave anything unattended! The internet at the hotel is excellent, it even reaches the beach! I didn't like the spa, I went for a peeling with a massage. It was very strange that one person did the peeling and another person did the massage. You wait all steamed up under the air conditioner for about a minute for both the peeling and the massage. The spa reception didn't give me a discount, although they gave it to everyone else. The discount amount was 1 dollar, it's a small amount, but it left a sour taste. The cuisine: the food is of good quality. There is a lot of delicious fish. Grilled/fried/stewed fish! In general, I want to say that what is truly memorable about Akka Antedon is the staff! A huge thank you to them for their hard work, friendliness, responsiveness, and their desire to make our stay unforgettable!

We booked a tour in advance for June 2022 and were eagerly anticipating our long-awaited vacation at this hotel - based on the recommendation of the agent and close friends who spoke highly of the exquisite cuisine and exceptional service, as well as the attentiveness of the guest service to tourists' requests. So, we informed the hotel in advance that we were on our honeymoon and requested a room with a good view in a quiet location, as well as early check-in if possible. To our delight, the hotel sent a message stating that a honeymoon suite would be prepared for us and early check-in would be arranged if possible. This level of attention was greatly appreciated. We arrived at the hotel early in the morning and by 9 am, we were at the reception, filling out forms and waiting to check-in. Instead of receiving attention and a warm welcome, we were met with a cold response from a girl named Marina who said we could check-in at 2 pm. It was not the most pleasant experience, but we understood that early check-in was subject to availability so we decided to have breakfast and explore the hotel. In the end, we were not able to check-in until 4 pm, citing the preparation of the honeymoon suite (attached is a photo). Exhausted from the overnight flight and waiting until 4 pm, we no longer desired anything except to lie down and rest. The room decoration caused hysterical laughter - spending 2 hours making a heart shape on the bed and bringing plates of treats. The room was tired, but everything worked fine. However, housekeeping left something to be desired. They reliably collected tips, but forgot to clean the floor. The plastic wrap on the floor was still there during check-in and for several days afterward, indicating that the floor was not being cleaned. The hotel grounds and the sea were magnificent - with an unreal atmosphere and beauty. As for the food, when we were recommended this hotel, they told us it had premium dining (expensive alcohol, salmon, expensive cheeses, etc.). Even in the photos, they showed us this variety. However, when we arrived for breakfast, we found a nice table on the veranda. As I walked along the buffet with my plate, I didn't see any salmon or camembert. The breakfast was very ordinary, like in budget 5-star hotels in Turkey. Some hotels of this kind offer poached eggs and Belgian waffles, but they were not available here. After filling our plates and sitting down, we expected a waiter to come to our table, but while there were waiters, they never approached us. So, while our breakfast got cold, we had to go get our own tea and coffee. It was definitely not the level of service expected from a hotel of this price range and premium dining concept. I had been eagerly awaiting my vacation and dreaming of having a nice breakfast under the pine trees, with a cup of coffee, poached eggs, cheeses, and salmon. Lunch and dinner were also average. We didn't go hungry, but there was no constant variety of fish such as sea bass, trout, sea bream, and other seafood. There was shrimp once, but they were tasteless, boiled, and cold. Why not prepare them with spices or garlic in butter, as is done in other hotels??? In general, the impression of the main restaurant's food was that it was more like a cafeteria for a quick snack. You won't go hungry, but you won't enjoy the dining experience either. À la carte options were very tasty and the service was good, but it was an additional charge of 15 euros per person. While it is possible to have dinner there, when you consider adding 42 euros to the cost of the tour (14 days * 2 people * 15 euros), it would have been better to choose a hotel of a completely different level. Currently, the hotel is overcrowded and there is already a queue of guests waiting for the restaurant to open. There is a shortage of clean tables, and dirty dishes are often encountered, which is becoming irritating. We don't consume much alcohol, but the ones we tried were of good quality. In conclusion, the hotel has a wonderful location and grounds. I genuinely believe that during the summer, everything was very impressive here. However, at the moment, cost-cutting measures are noticeable and the service has declined. Perhaps if this hotel were priced at the level of average 5-star hotels, everything would be acceptable. But paying a price almost equivalent to IC, Papillon, Bellis, Alva Donna, it is disappointing.

Tickets to this paradise were pre-purchased in advance, 2+1, but unfortunately, no miracle happened. The flight was canceled and no alternative was offered. The money is deposited, but the vacation is not happening. I hope to definitely make it here eventually. Based on the reviews, I definitely recommend this hotel.

I specially registered here to leave my first feedback about the vacation. I must say that we have been vacationing in Turkey not for the first time. We have been to a few places, but we have something to compare it with. We fell in love with Kemer the first time we visited a long time ago. Our travel agent recommended Akka to us last year, but we decided to go to Belek (for a change), a luxury hotel recommended by friends, but that's another story. And now, after a year, we finally realized that we want to go to Kemer (combination of sea and mountains) and remembered that we liked Akka Antedon hotel and bought tickets. Hooray! We arrived at 5 am. We were prepared that we wouldn't be able to check in immediately, so I packed our swimsuits closer. We wanted to sleep, of course, but our travel agent mentioned in the application that we had an upgraded room with a sea and mountain view, and at the reception they immediately told us that this room would only be available at 11 am. They said they could check us in to another room earlier. We agreed to wait. Besides, they kindly offered us to have some breakfast, go for a walk. They gave us cards to get towels if we wanted to swim. We left our suitcases in a separate room and went to see the sunrise, greeted the pristine sea, turned around and marveled. MOUNTAINS! So close!! The resort is large, well-maintained, clean, beautiful. It really was love at first sight during the first minutes of our vacation. Then we spent some time at the cat shelter. They were all so cute and friendly, we couldn't separate our children from them. We had breakfast, spent some time in the lobby, and around 1:4 they checked us into our room. The room was good. There were enough beds for all four of us. The air conditioner worked fine, but we rarely turned it on, only when necessary. The water was hot and cold, everything worked properly. The room had a kettle, tea, cookies, and salty sticks (they brought them when they replenished the mini bar). The mini bar had water, cola, sprite, juice, fanta, and tuborg Beer in cans. Two bathrobes, slippers, various bathroom amenities (shower gels, shampoos), I didn't count the towels, but I remember there were 4 large ones, some for hands and feet. We always had enough. The room was always cleaned well and neatly. We always left tips. We stayed in room 1226, 2nd floor, and I can't describe the view from the window. On one side, mountains, on the other, the pool and behind it, the sea. It was heavenly, guys! The food. Everything was delicious! The meat was amazing, especially when it was smoked with vegetables!! We always ordered omelets for breakfast (they made them outside, with vegetables), they were absolutely finger-licking good! The pastries were top-notch (sorry, there is no other way to describe it, you can eat yourself full of them, luckily they are only available in the morning). And the peaches there!!!! We ate them endlessly, it seemed to me! As for desserts, my favorite was cherry cheesecake, and my children tried everything there was. There were crabs (didn't like them), but the crabs were amazing! They had different porridges, soups, various side dishes (including dietary ones), yogurts, fresh orange juice (only for breakfast), vegetables, various snacks, seafood (mussels, small shrimps), in general, there was plenty of food for any appetite and it was delicious! We didn't drink alcohol, so I can't say anything about it. But we were ready to drink tea by the mug. It was very tasty (the one that the waiters poured). The pools were everywhere, so

My wife and I were vacationing together. We enjoyed everything - the hotel, the service, the food. Everything was excellent. Thank you to the hotel.

We had a vacation in August 222. The hotel is a 5+ star. Many details were well thought out: sockets near the beds; properly placed air conditioning that can be set to any mode; each room has its own electricity card, unlike other places where electricity is controlled by a key; the beach is pebble, but there are bridges for easy access to the sea, designed in a way that won't cause any knee injuries; instead of regular umbrellas, there are canopies on the beach that provide good shade, small tables and trash bins are placed next to each pair of sunbeds. The beach is clean and well-maintained. It's not sandy, so walking along the shore is not very comfortable. If you are comfortable in the water, you can go without water shoes (using the bridges), but if you need to occasionally touch the bottom, it's better to have water shoes with you. The food is diverse and delicious. We were a bit worried because of our previous visits to Turkey where we had the impression of "having a lot, but having nothing to eat" (even though we stayed at good hotels). Luckily, our concerns were not justified. The territory is well-maintained and beautiful. There are many souvenir shops, stores, and pharmacies in the vicinity of the hotel, and there are places for a nice stroll. The Grand Bazaar shop (with red letters on a yellow backdrop, with "Natural" written at the bottom on a green backdrop) sells very delicious Turkish delight, just a 1-minute walk to the left from the hotel. Regarding excursions: The trip to Pamukkale was a bit challenging, especially on the way back (everyone fell asleep on the way there). However, the views of Pamukkale are worth it, they are very beautiful and unusual. We did not go to Cleopatra's Pool and did not regret it. It is crowded there, and there is not enough time to see everything around. Moreover, the tour guide took the storage locker keys and decided on the meeting time for key return, so we couldn't manage our own time. We were amazed by the shops where they traditionally offered: A stone products store. Trinkets similar to ones bought in Russia for 2 rubles were offered for 25 dollars. A winery. We were not interested in wines, but the price of olive oil, almost 1 dollar per liter, did not seem suspicious. Each purchase was accompanied by an expensive "gift", which was basically something you didn't plan on buying. Istanbul: We wanted to return to Istanbul and explore it more calmly. The city is very beautiful, but there are a lot of people. Unfortunately, the food did not meet our expectations. Lunch was simply awful, there is nothing more to say. For dinner, we had fish, which was probably tasty, but one big "but" ruined everything. Maybe I don't understand something, but it seemed to me that the scales were not removed before cooking. I tried to remove the skin, but it didn't help with the scales that got stuck on the knife. Hopefully, we just had bad luck, and they do know how to cook in Istanbul, but doubts have crept in. A couple more points: We used the Mir card to make purchases with cards from Alfa-Bank and Rosbank. We withdrew money from cards from Rosbank and Gazprombank. The ATM (Bankamatik) is located to the left of the hotel, across from the pharmacy. We didn't get any money from the ATMs on the right side of the hotel.

Good day everyone! My husband and I vacationed together in August 2022 and the memories are still fresh, so I want to write a review about the Akka Antedon hotel and share my overall impressions below. 1. Location. It's about a 5-minute drive from the airport on a private transfer to Beldibi, which is the first village in Kemer, so it's very close. At the same time, the beauty is stunning - on one side of the hotel is the sea, on the other side are the mountains! The sea is clean and very warm! The air is great! 2. The hotel itself. In 2025, when the hotel opened, it was probably expensive and luxurious, but now it mostly looks outdated and tired. It would be nice to update the carpets, sofas, etc. in the reception area and the main bar. There are no complaints about the external territory - everything is very green and well maintained. There is an inner courtyard and terrace in the reception area, which are closed, which is strange considering the hotel's full occupancy. I won't go into detail about the spa area - it didn't impress me at all - when we came during lunchtime, there were mops and rags in the pre-bath hammam, the sauna and jacuzzi were not working - we didn't go there anymore. 3. Accommodation. Well, just like the hotel itself, to meet the standards of a premium five-star hotel and such prices, a decent renovation is required. Especially the bathrooms - after each shower, there was whitewash on the feet :) But overall, everything is clean, room cleaning comes every day, and the hotel has a mobile app where you can order room cleaning/mini-bar restocking/and much more (you can even complain and they will respond to you!). 4. Food. I would like to mention some general points related to the food. Due to Covid restrictions, all the food is served by the chefs - for the first couple of days, it was unusual (whether showing with gestures (two watermelons, two!) or in Russian or English), but then you get used to it and it no longer bothers you. Some food stations are quite far away - for lunch and dinner, the vegetables and appetizers were at the very beginning of the restaurant, and you either forget about them or you're too lazy to go there - the same with coffee/tea - it is supposed to be brought by a waiter upon request, but sometimes it was impossible to wait for them. So, breakfast/lunch/dinner. Breakfast: several types of porridge (without sugar - you can add fruits/nuts/honey to your taste), several types of eggs, omelets made in front of you (but you have to wait for about 5 minutes on average), vegetables, fruits, pancakes, waffles, and coffee only from a machine, which is a mixture from a packet, not freshly ground. You can also ask the waiters for orange juice for breakfast - it resembles natural, tasty juice. Overall, it's quite monotonous, for example, there were cottage cheese pancakes only twice in 9 days. Lunch - several types of grilled fish, meats, and chicken were always available and very tasty, side dishes, fruits, vegetables, a couple of types of soups - I would like to highlight the desserts - the hotel's pastry chef is excellent!! Dinner - basically the same as lunch + a few more types of meat depending on the day of the week - ribs, chicken, fish, shrimp. There are some unusual items, like sushi on Fridays (not tasty - not worth the long queues), and crabs (tasty) and crayfish (also tasty) on Wednesdays. There's a wide selection of fruits (peaches, figs, plums, grapes, watermelon, melon). Pineapples were available once a week. All drinks (except coffee and tea) are served by waiters during lunch and dinner, and alcoholic beverages such as wine/beer are included. Be careful when eating outside - birds (including large seagulls) come and eat all the food from your plate while you're away. There's a snack bar where you can eat from 12 to 4. Shawarma, pizza, salads - a great option for a lunchtime snack by the sea! Throughout the day, Turkish flatbreads are baked on the premises (from 11 to 4), and after 4, they make hot dogs. You can eat ice cream all day (packaged or in scoops), and there's a café similar to Starbucks near the pool. 5. Bars. There are 3 bars on the premises (at the reception, pool bar, beach bar), and they have a menu with QR codes - very convenient! They serve a standard range of cocktails (mojito, gin and tonic, etc.), champagne, martinis, and you can get chips with your beer :) 6. A la carte restaurants - you can visit one of them for free once, and subsequent visits cost 15 euros per person (reservation for the next day or on the day itself is no problem, there are always available spots). We went to the Turkish (Shafran) and seafood (Gilet) restaurants - delicious, beautiful presentation, small portions, just enough for appetizers, salad, main course, and dessert :) 7. Beach. It's a spacious pebble beach, there are always enough sunbeds, but as usual, there are those who reserve them at 7am, but whenever we arrived at 9 or 9:30am, we found places. There's a pier and special entrances from the beach to the sea, everything is very convenient! The only drawback to the beach is the number of vendors and their services - there's a spa, water sports, a fabric shop, and a photo session with a pirate and a parrot (!) - the only thing missing is corn. This can be annoying in the first few days, but then you get used to it. There are also 2 large pools on the premises, and there's a water park with a couple of slides - even for adults, it's fun to ride them! 8. Entertainment - I just want to express a huge thank you to the hotel for inviting such wonderful and interesting shows! There are dance shows, cover bands, and on Tuesdays, there's a big disco on the pier. It was never boring in the 9 days we stayed there! It's better to get seats near the stage, as after 15 minutes of the show starting, children (who are bored) and their parents start walking around, taking them away. After the entertainment, there's live music - you can dance or just listen to the music while enjoying a cocktail/tea and having a great time! 9. Overall impression - a strong, classic Turkish five-star for a relaxing vacation :)

We had been considering the Akka Antedon Hotel for a while, but we always ended up choosing other hotels. The price difference played a role, as Akka was always more expensive. However, this year, considering the current situation in the world, as well as the situation around the fall of the lira and the decline of the dollar against the ruble, the prices for trips to Turkey in May were simply "gifted," and the prices for many hotels became equivalent. We decided to take advantage of this opportunity and booked the Akka Antedon Hotel to see what makes it so good?! Our choice of this hotel was based on its high priority towards service and improved dining, as well as its high customer orientation from the management!!! THE HOTEL DOES NOT HAVE WRISTBANDS - for us, this is a separate plus, and we really like the absence of wristbands!!! Overall, we just wanted to try what we had been eyeing for a long time. HOTEL PRICE The cost of the early booking tour for 11 days (10 nights) at Akka Antedon in May cost us 2,000 rubles, with a flight through Turkish Airlines from Kaliningrad (charters from Anadolu Jet). Of course, these are not full-fledged Turkish Airlines flights, but the travel time is 2 hours shorter than on Russian planes, which did not fly directly but made a big detour through the Baltic. In fact, we flew from Kaliningrad to Antalya in about 3 hours. Full hot meals were not available, but they did provide refreshing drinks once, as well as cereal bars and coffee or tea. There were no TV screens, and therefore, there was no media content to watch or listen to. WEATHER IN SEPTEMBER The daytime temperature during the first week was 32-34 degrees Celsius, but a cyclone arrived during the second week, and the temperature dropped to 28-32 degrees Celsius. At night, the temperature dropped to 24-26 degrees Celsius during the first week, and to 19-21 degrees Celsius during the second week. The sea temperature was around 26-27 degrees Celsius, according to my personal feelings. The hotel did not provide information about the sea water temperature, but the temperature of the water in the pool was 24 degrees Celsius, and it felt cold after the sea (the information board near the pool displayed this temperature, but it felt more like 22-23 degrees Celsius). There were a couple of windy days with stormy seas. On other days, the sea was as clear as glass. What surprised me a lot was that one day out of these two windy days was completely without sunshine, with continuous clouds, but there was no rain. The sea on that day was so muddy that nothing could be seen beyond an outstretched hand. I have never experienced this in Turkey before, but it didn't spoil our mood. HOTEL TERRITORY The hotel has a relatively large territory. There are many different benches, gazebos, bridges, paths, and relaxation areas. Everything is very convenient, beautiful, and pleasing to the eye. It is SPA, FITNESS, AND SPORTS The SPA center is of a very high standard, and the specialists are highly qualified. On the first day of arrival, my spouse and I went for a introductory massage for $13 for both of us (including sauna, hammam, full body scrub, full body and facial massage, and clay face mask). After this procedure, our tan was even and we didn't get sunburned, and most importantly, there was no skin peeling as usual after tanning. After that, my spouse signed up for 5 sessions of individual massage with elements of osteopathy (she was very satisfied with the noticeable effect, and it cost around 21,000 rubles for 5 sessions, as we paid with a card and I don't remember the price in dollars). There are 2 tennis courts on the premises, near the main hotel entrance, and one table tennis table on the hotel promenade. The fitness center is located in the hotel's SPA center. In the Junior Club, there are a couple of billiard tables and it seems there is also another table tennis table. BARS AND RESTAURANTS There are 5 à la carte restaurants: Şafran (Turkish cuisine), Gület (seafood), Olive (Italian), Ala Mezze (Mediterranean cuisine), and Pasha (French cuisine). For all first-time tourists, they are chargeable at 15 euros per person. In my opinion, the best seafood is on the beach, at the leftmost point of the hotel. In the food court area, there is a refrigerator with ALGIDA ice cream, and from 11 am to 6 pm, they have 27 types of ice cream available. In the main restaurant, there is bulk ice cream with 7 varieties, which they scoop into waffle cones. GEZLEME BREAD Near the main bar, there are two gazebos where two women prepare Gezleme bread from 1 pm to 4 pm. They have fillings such as cheese, greens, and meat. COFFEE SHOP The coffee shop, located near the food court, deserves special respect. From 9 am until 11 pm, you can order incredibly delicious coffee. There are different types to choose from, both hot and cold, with or without fillings. You can take it in a cup to go, or sit comfortably at a table and enjoy the wonderful aroma and taste of natural coffee! Of course, it would have been perfect if there were at least 2-3 desserts or cookies or waffles, but even without them, it is a wonderful location! We really liked it. MAIN BAR AND POOL BAR SELECTION Honestly, the expectations were not met here. The selection of alcohol was much smaller than I expected. Yes, the alcohol was all imported and of good quality, and yes, the choice was enough for us, but... With the advertised PREMIUM ULTRA ALL INCLUDED, the expectations were slightly higher... In particular, I like dark rum, but it was not available at all?! There were three types of light rum available. In general, there were liqueurs, whiskey, rum, brandy, tequila, champagne, wine, vodka, gin, and beer, but... I repeat, the expectations were slightly higher... I didn't like that there was no cocktail menu?! I don't understand why it's difficult to print and place a couple of menus with photos. Many hotel guests did not know the names of all the cocktails and often approached other guests to ask what cocktail it was and what it was called, but in my opinion, it would be more logical to look at the bar and order. The bartenders themselves, as everywhere, have those who do their job joyfully and cheerfully, and also make high-quality and delicious cocktails, and there are those who do everything "automatically" and accordingly, the taste of the cocktails is significantly different. Of course, a couple of dollars work their magic, and you always get the best cocktails with a smile from the bartender!!! As a plus, I can say that any cocktail you name will be prepared for you!!! Even if there is a lack of any ingredient, they will try to replace it and prepare a delicious cocktail. BEER SELECTION There were always only two types of beer available - CARLSBERG and TUBORG malt. They were available in bottles and on tap. If you drink at the bar, they pour it into a glass, but if you take it to the beach or pool, they give it in bottles, but they always open the cap. MAIN RESTAURANT The main restaurant always had very well-prepared food, and there was always a variety and choice. BUT... here the expectations were not met again... Based on the concept of PREMIUM ULTRA ALL INCLUDED, the choice was very modest... Yes, everything was there! There was a choice of fish, meat, cheese, delicacies, fruits, and desserts, but... Our expectations were clearly higher... We spoke to many guests and everyone agreed - the assortment of the main restaurant and alcohol was clearly more limited than before... The access to the food was still restricted, and the food was served by kitchen staff behind glass, but it didn't bother us... Although many hotels have lifted this restriction, we personally believe that this restriction should still be there!!! The coronavirus is still active!!! We just need to wait it out, and everything will return!!! I would like to separately mention that all the staff of the main restaurant were always friendly and polite. The waiters took orders and served them very efficiently and quickly! There were no sideways glances or dissatisfaction during the service. Whenever we sat down in the main restaurant for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, they approached us and asked what drinks to bring. During the meal, the waiters also constantly circulated around the tables and if they saw that a drink was running out, they asked if we needed a refill or replacement. In general, the service in terms of hospitality was very good. ROOMS The hotel had not undergone a complete renovation, and it was clear that the rooms were not new. However, I can say that everything was in decent condition. The most important thing was that everything was intact and clean. Although some hinges squeaked, there were some scratches here and there, etc. But overall, we were satisfied with the room. However, there was one downside again - it is unclear why the hotel skimps on such small things, but in reality, there was no disposable toothpaste, toothbrush, razor, and other small items?! There were standard shampoo, liquid soap, shower cap, and regular soap available. I can note that the hairdryer was of good quality. The room had a kettle, safe, slippers, bathrobes, and three towels per person. On the balcony, there were two plastic chairs and a table, as well as a wall-mounted drying rack. Each room had an individually controlled air conditioner. In addition to the chair and table, there was also a full-sized sofa and an additional chair in the room. The minibar had 2 beers, 2 Fantas, 2 colas, 2 Sprites, 2 Nestea teas, 2 mineral waters, 2 regular waters, tea bags, salted breadsticks, and cookies. ENTERTAINMENT The level of animation was worthy, both in general and by the animators themselves. Everything was at a good level, without any intrusiveness or "flat" jokes. I liked that the winners of the contests were simply greeted with applause and cheers. In Darts, the prize was a bottle of champagne! I even won once! Everything was decent, professional, and allowed for a comfortable time. I PERSONALLY LOVED EVERYTHING! Other guests complained that the shooting with an air rifle was canceled, but personally, I was satisfied with throwing darts, playing Boules, and competing in Curling. SHOW PROGRAM A good and worthy level! The program was designed for two weeks and did not repeat itself. I would like to note separately that after the main show program, there was always either live music or a disco near the food court. There, you could comfortably spend time with a cocktail or dance. Those who wanted to continue hanging out could go to the hotel's nightclub. We didn't go there, so I can't say anything about it. We just went in to see it before it started working, and that's all. GUEST DEMOGRAPHICS If you can say so, it is an excellent resort for tourists aged 4 and up... Most of the tourists were between 35 and 55 years old. There were a lot of guests over 55. There were hardly any young people under 25, and you could count them on one hand. The hotel is for calm and serene relaxation, not for parties, which is why there were many older guests. In terms of nationalities, the majority of hotel guests were Russian-speaking (guests from the entire post-Soviet space), and local Turkish vacationers made up no more than 1% of the total number of people. I did not see or hear any representatives from the old world (Europe), although I assume they may have been there. TRANSFER TO ANTALYA We purposely went to Antalya twice. The first time, we ordered an individual transfer for $7 round trip with a wait at the 5M-MIGROS shopping center parking lot. The second time, we specifically took a dolmuş (a small bus) for 22 lira or $1.5 per person one way (ultimately, $6 round trip). We took both options to compare the time and understand the difference. I can say that the difference in travel time was only 5 minutes!!! With the individual transfer, it took 25 minutes, and the dolmuş ride took 3 minutes. We decided that an individual transfer for two people is worth it for a one-time trip, but if you plan to go to the 5M-MIGROS shopping center 2-3 times, then it's better to use the dolmuş. But be sure to take the dolmuş with the number 7!!! It goes to the Geinuk settlement and stops in Beldibi but does not go to Kemer. Therefore, it has significantly fewer people, and there are always seats available. OVERALL IMPRESSIONS A very balanced hotel for a calm and relaxing vacation with a good level of service and a clientele aged 3-70. It had a wide beach and a large pool surrounded by beautiful greenery of conifer trees and palms on the promenade. Regarding food and drinks, our expectations were not met, but those were just our wishes about possible restaurant menus and bars... Overall, we liked everything, and everything was sufficient - everything was fresh, there was always a variety to choose from, everything was of good quality and cooked deliciously! If we consider the cost of the hotel (reminding you - it cost us $2000 in May, the lowest price in May dropped to $185,000! In the summer, its price ranged around $2500-3000, and in the fall, the price increased to around $3000-3500 for our vacation dates), then, given a price range of around $2000-2500 and other equal conditions, we will definitely return to this hotel. But if it becomes more expensive, we will probably look for something else, as there are many more interesting options out there... Thank you for reading to the end! We wish everyone a great vacation and excellent weather! I would be grateful if you could give this a like!

I recommend this hotel, we have been there twice and we liked it a lot. The entertainers are great, the food is delicious and the rooms are clean and cozy.

The hotel was chosen spontaneously amidst the cancellation of a tour purchased in winter. We didn't regret it. Yes, the rooms need updating and the family rooms are only suitable for a maximum of 4 people, with the second room being small and dark. We would have liked more comfort. However, the staff is excellent - they try to help you, smile, and quickly fulfill their duties. There is a convenient app where you can note your preferences, and everything is done instantly. Good internet. The beach is more convenient to the left of the pier, and there is an equipped entrance to the sea on the right. The entertainment was great for both children and adults. The food is diverse, and the 24/7 access to sweet water simply won over our children! We enjoyed everything.

Green territory, delicious food, close to the sea, excellent entertainment - that's what this hotel is all about. Especially worth mentioning are the darts with Eyup and Zumba with Zhenya. Every day there are some shows - very interesting!

We were on vacation with our family, including two children aged 2 and 15. We arrived at the hotel at 8 am and received our room at 11. The room was two-storeyed on the top floor with a view of the mountain and the neighboring hotel, where we could hear the animation and music, but it didn't bother us. The rooms are definitely old and need to be renovated, but everything works. A big plus of this room is having two bathrooms. The room cleaning was honestly poor. The food was good, with a lot of fruits! The only issue was that there were a lot of flies in the restaurant, I haven't seen that anywhere else, they kept landing on the food all the time. There were enough sunbeds on the beach and the sunshades were big. The sea was very clean, although there were a few times when trash was washed ashore by the wind. The entrance to the sea was rocky. You could dive from the pier. I liked the ice cream, waffles, coffee, and the bars. We liked the water slides in the water park, even with our little one in our arms, we went down the big slide (holding him securely). The mini club area was nice. We didn't use the services ourselves since they were for children aged 4 and above. No one goes to the teenage club, but our eldest son found himself a company and participated in games in the pool, darts, volleyball, and so on. He was satisfied. The hotel grounds are beautiful! Green, well-maintained with a view of the huge mountain! There are shops and a pharmacy near the hotel, which unfortunately came in handy for us, as all four of us caught a stomach virus (we have been to Turkey many times, and the kids get sick often, but the adults never do, and here...). However, it didn't spoil our vacation.

Hello! We stayed at the hotel for the second time, so we knew exactly where we were going. There is a lot of positive feedback already written, so I'll keep it short: We arrived at the hotel at 8 am and received our room at 1 pm. Room 2321 is on the 3rd floor from the reception (actually the 4th floor). The room is located at the end of the corridor and not many people pass by, so it's quiet. The view from the room is of the mountain. In my opinion, this is the best view in the hotel. In the morning, it feels like a beautiful mountain in the sunlight right outside the window. There are also tennis courts and a neighboring hotel under the room (there is music in the evening, but it's already quiet by 11 pm). The room has everything: a mini bar, soap, etc. The bathroom has a separate bathtub and shower cabin (both can be used simultaneously). Housekeeping - I would rate it a 4, it could have been better. Food: everything was at a high level. Those who say otherwise are probably just being picky, but it depends on personal preferences, of course. Water slides - great. Children can ride the big slides on their own from the age of 1, so if your child is 8-9 years old, tell them they are 1 and ride together. Animation: Volleyball - the most important for me, so I played twice a day. The court is normal for Turkey. Darts, bocce, curling - fun activities to have a good time without exerting too much effort. Teen animation - it exists, but I have never seen anyone go there, so my 9-year-old daughter played darts and curling with me if the animator wasn't strict and didn't allow children. By the way, other children aged 1-15 also played with adults. Evening shows - mostly very interesting groups perform. The sea is clean. There was a lot of trash brought to the shore once in 14 days. The pool water gets hot after lunch))). It is stated that reserving sunbeds in the morning is forbidden - I saw it myself when at 7 am the towels were removed from the sunbeds and a note was left for people to collect them. I reserved 3 sunbeds at around 7:30 am and had no problems. If you want, there is always a sunbed available, but it may not be in the location you would prefer. We were lucky with the weather - there was no intense heat. Check-out from the hotel was at 5 pm, and they gave me a substitute room for 25 euros. They can also extend your room for 5 euros, but we did not manage to do it. Come to the hotel - you won't regret it.

We were on vacation with my boyfriend from May 14th to May 24th. We flew with Turkish Airlines. They served food about an hour after takeoff, and there was a choice of tea, coffee, juices, and water. The receiving party was Pegas. We were taken to the hotel by a mini-bus, which was very comfortable and fast. It took us about 4 minutes to get there. We arrived at the hotel around 9 am, but our room was not ready yet as check-in is after 2 pm. The hotel was fully booked at this time of the year. The receptionist told us that we could go have breakfast. So, a little sleepy from the journey, we went to have breakfast. Only after breakfast did we realize we should have changed clothes in the nearest restroom and explore the area since it was quite hot. It would have been nice if the receptionist could have informed us right away, for example: "You can change clothes over there, then leave your bags with your suitcase and enjoy the hotel facilities." The hotel grounds are small but green, and the views of the mountains are breathtaking! There are several bars on the premises, as well as a coffee shop, snack bar, sweet bar, fruit distribution by the sea, and refrigerators with beverages (juices, cola, Fanta, Sprite, ayran, water). Everything is available in unlimited quantities. There is also a small house with very friendly cats (DO NOT FEED THEM SAUSAGES OR ICE CREAM - THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED!). There are water slides, hammock areas, a large heated outdoor pool (heated until the end of May) and a deeper, unheated pool nearby. The cocktails served at the bars are quite strong, so if you want to have a drink but don't like strong alcohol, remember to say "NOT STRONG" when ordering. Also, all bars offer snacks like nuts, nachos, and potato chips. Not everyone knew this, so I think this information will be useful. The towel exchange/replacement counter is located by the main pool on the way to the sea. The animation team is excellent! The guys constantly entertain the guests and involve them in various activities. However, the evening entertainment gets a solid 4. Throughout our stay, we attended almost every show, but they were mostly dancing or acrobatics with dancing. It would be nice to have more variety. In addition to the animation team, there are SPA center employees on the premises, and they bothered us a lot during the first half of our vacation. I understand that it's their job, but we tried to avoid them whenever we saw them because we didn't want to listen to their offers to go to the spa. About the room: We booked a standard LAN View room. It was located on the 3rd floor of the main building. The balcony offered a view of the mountains and a bit of the sea. We really liked the room. There are a few minor drawbacks, which I'll mention below. The room includes: - a large bed - a sofa - a TV - a refrigerator (the mini-bar is replenished daily around 3-4 pm and it's free) - a kettle - tea/coffee/cookies/pretzels (replenished as needed) - 2 bathrobes - 2 pairs of slippers - a safe (free) - a clothesline on the balcony - an ashtray - air conditioning - a hairdryer in the bathroom - a magnifying mirror - shampoo + conditioner + shower gel + lotion + soap (replenished as needed) - 2 large bath towels - 2 small face towels There was sufficient lighting. The only thing we couldn't find was the light switch for the balcony, as we sometimes wanted to sit there in the evenings. It seemed like there was no switch that led to the balcony. Housekeeping was done daily, and they usually came to our room before or during lunchtime. There were also enough power outlets. One on each side of the bed, one by the TV, and one in the bathroom. About the room's drawbacks: Every morning (around 4-5 am), we could hear prayers from the nearby mosque. This happened in the evening as well. The closed balcony and curtains didn't help to reduce the noise, unfortunately. Since our balcony faced the side where the school was located, we also woke

Do not book villas with a pool in the residence, as there is a mosque with excellent loudspeakers behind the fence, and the daily sunrise will be your wake-up call. Book a room in the main building with a sea view and you will be delighted. The hotel is excellent, the staff is friendly, the food is outstanding, the area is spacious, and the sea entrance is equipped. There is plenty of space for everyone, European alcohol is available in unlimited quantities. There are separate cafes with ice cream and coffee. If desired, you can rent a comfortable pavilion by the sea.

Our vacation at this hotel was in October 222. The weather was lovely and warm, the nights were cool, and the days were not humid. The hotel welcomes you with a huge lobby decorated in Turkish style. Bellboys swiftly grab your luggage (but only during the day, I didn't notice any at late arrivals) and check you into your room quickly. They check you in, but only at exactly 2 o'clock, even if you want to check in earlier. The hotel impresses with its decor, not new and stylish, but rather with a sense of grandeur in the solid wood furniture, Turkish embellishments, and high vaulted ceiling with beams. There is also a pleasant aroma of hotel perfume in the lobby. The rooms are old but well-maintained and clean, everything is acceptable, a solid 4 out of 5. Housekeeping is amazing, it was done every day, and the toiletries were replenished (soap, shampoo, etc). The minibar is stocked with popular brands of beer, Fanta, Coca-Cola, cold tea. There is also a tea set, kettle, coffee and tea, and cookies in the room. The beds and mattresses are a bit old, but they didn't hinder our rest, not even for those with picky backs. The blankets seemed to be one and a half beds wide. A very strange decision - one and a half blanket for two people, it's a bit too small! But there are also cool fluffy white bathrobes in the room, such a treat in autumn! The staff is responsive and friendly, both in the bars and in the restaurant. By the way, the food is not the hotel's strong point. It's tasty, of course, but not everything. I do not recommend queuing for salmon steak - it will have a strong oily smell, and the crabs and shrimps are also not worth your attention. Eat the meat - it's amazing! But the alcohol is what you need, they have almost everything you could want, mostly imported. There is animation, it's active, but not too intrusive. The water park is wonderful. The beach is stunning, plenty of space for everyone, comfortable sunbeds, and clean water. And Beldibi is a fantastic place, you should come here at least for these magnificent mountain views!

I want to share my review about the most wonderful hotel. We had a 14-day trip. We have previously stayed in different hotels in Turkey with a child, but Akka Antedon impressed us the most, especially due to its child theme and its suitability as a family hotel. So, we arrived at 6 am and were already at the hotel by 7 am. We had an individual transfer from Turkish Airlines, so we didn't have to wait for anyone. We were alone and we reached the hotel quickly and comfortably. The hotel is huge, with a large green area. It can accommodate up to 16 people, as far as I remember. We were informed that we could only check in at 12 noon. We left our luggage and went for a walk around the hotel grounds. By 1:30 pm, we were tired from the overnight flight, so we approached the reception desk and asked if we could check in. To our delight, they said we could. By the way, there is a street with shops near the hotel. Also, it is advisable to bring dollars or euros with you or exchange currency at the airport for lira or euros. It takes a 4-5 minute walk from the hotel to the ATM. You can only withdraw money from certain ATMs. The ones near the hotel don't accept Mir cards. Our room was on the 4th floor, with a view of the beautiful mountains. The view was stunning. The second floor of the room was not needed. Next time we come to this hotel, we will choose a regular one-story room. It wasn't necessary for us because our daughter is 4.5 years old, so she slept with us downstairs. However, if you have older children, this room is excellent as the child can live separately upstairs. The biggest highlight, in my opinion, is the children's pool. It was incredible because it was unbelievably warm. Children can splash around in it from morning till evening without worries about getting cold or their teeth chattering. I haven't seen such a warm pool in any other hotel we have been to. It was just wow, thanks to the hotel for that. The adults' pool was also heated. There is a great large water park with heated water as well. Moving on... The children's mini club is every parent's dream. It's not just a club where you drop off your kids and they entertain themselves. It's interesting and fun. I would give it a perfect score. The club operates from 9 am to 5:30 pm. We brought our child to the club until 1 am, and at 1:30 pm, there was a fun workout session with music. Then, the children engage in various activities, such as making necklaces, painting with watercolors, and playing games like Indians, searching for Winnie the Pooh, and more. In short, the mini club and the staff working there are amazing. They truly engage with the children and, most importantly, the kids enjoy themselves. The next highlight is the children's playground on the beach. It's great. Our daughter played there constantly while my husband and I sunbathed. The evening animation for children is also great. The shows were fantastic. The shows started on May 1st, and we arrived on May 22nd. The shows were impressive. Sometimes they even organized discos on the pier, which was really cool. The DJ played great music, there were tables set up, a bar, and it felt like being in a real club in Moscow. The DJ was amazing, and the music was superb. Now, I'll mention a small downside, but it's personally for me. My husband was satisfied with everything. It's about the food. If you pay attention, the hotel doesn't offer a wide variety of food for the number of people staying there. It's not little, but it's quite repetitive, especially in those metal containers (I don't know their correct name) with lids. Yes, for two weeks, I found something to eat every day, such as fish or some meat, but it became monotonous for me. I wanted more variety. However, there are plenty of vegetables, which is a plus. Plus, there was strawberry season with whipped cream, which was amazing. There were also many delicious sweets and cakes, so I can't complain about that. Breakfasts were very repetitive, and in the last few days, I didn't know what to choose. There are many guests from Poland, Estonia, and other countries in the hotel. There are Russians too, but not as many. Everything is calm and peaceful, and all the people are nice. You don't have that feeling that you probably know what I mean. Everyone is good, and everything is quiet and peaceful. I also remembered that the hotel has excellent customer service. If you call and ask for something, they do it or bring it right away. It's a 5+ for that. By the way, the hotel provides children's bathrobes, just ask at the reception, and they will bring them to your room. You can also ask for a stool for your child in the bathroom, and it will be brought to you. Moreover, from May 5th to 8th, there was a family festival at the hotel. They organized a picnic with giant dolls for kids, queens, Fixies, Robocar Poli, and more. It was awesome. My verdict is that I definitely recommend this hotel. We will definitely come back because it impressed me so much. Thank you very much, Akka Antedon.

Good day to everyone reading my review and choosing a hotel for vacation. I am writing this with a delay. We stayed from July 27th to August 5th, 2022. I made the reservation back in November before all the well-known events. The tour with the flight cost 22,000 rubles (2+2), to Minvody, through TO Sanmar. Now such prices do not exist, even "Creepy 5-star" hotels cost more. I will try to write in detail, if you have any questions, ask and I will answer everyone. CHECK-IN AND ROOM: We arrived at the hotel around 5 PM and filled out all the necessary paperwork. At that time, a guest relation girl approached us and said to contact them for anything, they will always help. This turned out to be true when we called them from the room for anything we needed (a toilet seat, a step for a child, extra water, etc.), everything was taken care of within 1-2 minutes. So, after filling out the paperwork, we approached the reception, and I put 15 euros in my passport and asked for a good room if possible (our reservation was for a room with a view of the grounds). They gave us a wonderful room 13 on the 2nd floor with a direct view of the sea and pool (since the trees were tall and we were on the 2nd floor, the sea was not very visible). But! I believe they considered my request, so I give them a 5+. The room was clean and had everything we needed. There was a very comfortable bed for our youngest daughter and the room was very spacious, everything was in working condition. HOTEL: Yes, it is an old hotel, a bit worn out and in need of renovation. But everything is clean! Cleanliness is constantly maintained inside the hotel and on the grounds. I give them a 5- for cleanliness. After all, it is not a cheap hotel, and it hasn't had a good renovation with furniture replacement for a long time. GROUNDS: I give them a 5+ as I mentioned above, everything is perfectly clean everywhere! The beauty of the grounds is mesmerizing... mountains, pine trees, everything is green. There are many locations for photos and relaxation. The pool is large and clean, you can always find a spot, and there is a children's pool with slides, but the water there is cooler. There is a small playground and a water spray area for children, they love it! The kids' club is also located in this area and they play both indoors and outdoors, constantly engaging with the kids. In the evening, there are always shows, and in the daytime, at the cafe after the amphitheater, there is live music. You can sit with a glass of something delicious and listen to a strange girl singing in broken Russian. There is enough space for everyone. CAFES, RESTAURANTS: Regarding food, I would give it a 5-. The outdoor café always has the same menu, not very diverse in terms of names (burgers, pizza, pasta-like macaroni, baked potatoes, flatbread, wings and drumsticks like KFC, french fries, and something else that I can't remember). They serve you based on the menu, which is a huge plus for my family. You can order any drinks. Everything is tasty, but after the third visit, it becomes repetitive, so for variety, we had to go to the main restaurant where the lunch is standard (a couple of types of soup, grilled, stewed, boiled meat, a few types of fish, pasta, potatoes, salads, vegetables, etc.). The breakfast was good, they had 15 types of cheese, salted salmon in pieces, 2 types of porridge, meat, sausages, eggs (omelette, boiled, fried, steamed, all kinds), vegetables, pastries, and so on. As for dinner, it is more diverse compared to lunch, and there was a themed dinner every other day (Turkish night, Mexican, Japanese, fish, etc.). I give it a 5- because although there is a lot of food, it all tends to be monotonous and not everything is delicious. But don't think that you will get bored of the food easily. I used to think that when I read such comments in reviews, BUT! Everything is relative and with experience, you appreciate it differently, and of course, the price leaves its mark when evaluating the food at the hotel! On the grounds, there are also gelato, fruits, and hot dogs available at certain hours. There is ice cream available in packaging (Magnum, Algida) and ice cream cones. There is a coffee shop with excellent coffee and coffee drinks. There is also a pastry shop with hot waffles with toppings, pastries, and cakes. We did not visit the à la carte restaurants. BARS: Now, in this aspect, I give it a 5++. My spouse and I love having a drink, but only on holidays and during leisure time, such as vacation. There is a wide variety of alcohol in all the bars, including premium brands. There are photos you can check out. They also make good and tasty cocktails (not all bartenders though). We always took bottled beer. On the grounds, there are refrigerators where you can take non-alcoholic drinks yourself (juice, cola, Fanta, Sprite, water, bottled water, etc.). The bartenders are generous, they pour as much as you ask for. If you "treat" them well, they will be loyal friends until the end of your stay. BEACH: The beach is large, there are always enough sun loungers, and there are canopies everywhere. There is also a sandbox for children. The entrance, like everywhere in this region, is pebbly, and the water is very clean and warm at this time. I give it a 5+. There is a large pier where you can jump. During our stay (9 days), a disco was held on the pier twice, there was a bar and excellent music. In summary, I recommend the hotel, we really liked it. Nobody got sick, all family members are happy and satisfied.

I am posting an old review from 222 years ago, which I will later supplement with a review from this year. According to a long-standing tradition, it was decided to go to sunny Turkey again for Christmas. This time, there was a strong desire for mountains, and the choice was made in favor of Beldibi. It turned out to be the right choice))) In winter, it is important to have good weather in Turkey, but it is equally important to have a good hotel. Now, let's talk in more detail about the advantages and disadvantages of Akka Antedon. 1. The airport is only a quick 4-5 minute drive away. 2. Check-in is fast from 2:00 pm, depending on the hotel's occupancy, but they will try to check you in as quickly as possible. Always communicate your preferences and be polite. 3. The rooms are not very new, but quite decent. Comfortable beds and pillows. The minibar (water, soda, mineral water) is replenished every day. Bathrobes are provided upon request (there may be availability issues due to high hotel occupancy). 4. The hotel grounds are spacious, with plenty of places to walk and relax. They are not overloaded with decorations, and there is an interesting feature with plants growing on the premises: the hotel provides a map showing where different plants grow. You can even give your child a botany lesson there. The place is very beautiful overall: at sunrise, the sun colors the mountains in pink, and on the other side, there is a bright blue sea. 5. The pools and beach. There is a large heated pool on the premises, so if the weather is not suitable for swimming in the sea, you can always swim there. It's particularly nice to swim there in the evening when it's raining. There is also a small pool for children, which seems even warmer and has steam rising from it. There is a water park, but we did not go there. In the main building, there is also a pool and a sauna, both dry and wet. After the January sea, warming up in the sauna is pure bliss. The beach in winter is not great, with pebbles and waves, but if the waves are not too big, it is still possible to go in and out. The water in January is refreshing, around 18-19 degrees, but you only feel it for a couple of minutes, and then you just want to swim and enjoy. There are plenty of sunbeds on the pier along the beach, so you can simply sunbathe. 6. Food. The food at Akka Antedon is very delicious and plentiful. Be careful not to overeat. The breakfast offers a standard selection for a 5-star hotel, but everything is really fresh and tasty, prepared in front of you, with good pastries and freshly squeezed juice. Lunch and dinner deserve high praise, always offering beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, and fish. There is plenty to choose from. There are children's and diet corners, baby food in jars for babies, fresh baklava and pastries, seasonal fruits, and ice cream. I would like to mention the café on the premises separately. It became my daughter's favorite place. They serve really delicious coffee, and there is a pastry shop nearby, which makes a teenager happy. You can take a cup of coffee, a couple of pastries, and enjoy the sound of the waves on the beach. By the way, it was noticeable that the variety of food decreased after the end of the New Year holidays when most of our fellow countrymen left. However, this did not affect the quality. I cannot say anything about alcohol as I do not drink, but my husband enjoyed the raki and they make cocktails in the bar. 7. Entertainment. I know for sure that the kids' club in the main building was operating, but I cannot provide details since my child is not of that age. They have adult entertainment as well, such as karaoke and evening disco in the bar. You can sign up for workshops, fishing, and trips to the Geyik Canyon at the reception. We went fishing on the beach))) They provide fishing rods and chicken. We caught and released small sea breams, and sometimes crabs get caught. It's quite entertaining for a change. You can also borrow a bicycle and ride around the area by leaving a deposit. There seem to be some other sports activities, but we just went to the gym. 8. Surroundings. The hotel is conveniently located relative to Antalya. To the left of the hotel's exit, there is a bus stop (bring cash lira). It takes a maximum of 3 minutes to get to Big Migros, and from there, you can transfer to any bus to the city center. You can also go to the Otogar (bus station) and transfer to the fast tram AntRay. I highly recommend walking around the shopping centers in winter. On the way back from Big Migros, stop any bus with the sign "Kemer". Buy an AntalyaKart pass, similar to our Troika card, and recharge it at the machines for every visit to Antalya. You can plan routes in the city using Google Maps. It displays bus numbers and transfers. I recommend visiting the Archaeological Museum of Antalya. You can also take a trip to Geyik Canyon, but choose good weather because you have to walk uphill for a couple of kilometers from the road to the entrance of the canyon, so evaluate your strength. There is an entrance fee for the canyon. 9. The weather in January is usually unstable - one day sunny and warm, the next day it may drizzle rain. The temperature ranges from +5 in the morning to +25 in the sun during the day. It can storm heavily. However, this does not hinder relaxation. The key is having the right mindset and the desire to relax. In general, January in Turkey reminds me of the beginning of May in Moscow, but instead of smog, there is the scent of pine trees, and instead of crazy traffic, there is the sound of the sea. It is just what you need to recharge. As for the hotel, I definitely recommend it; we felt very comfortable here. We will definitely come back.

Two adults and children aged 9 and 16. The room is a two-storey 53 sq. m, 1 hour away from the airport. The hotel is wonderful, with great service, food, and staff. The waiters are all polite and helpful. On the 31st of December, despite the large number of guests, all the dishes were beautifully decorated and all kinds of alcohol were served quickly. There was a lively program and the table was filled with food. The hotel guests are Russians and Turks. The weather was amazing, with a temperature of +27 degrees. Last year, when we were in Turkey for New Year's, the maximum temperature was +19 degrees. The pools are heated to 32 degrees, and there are cool slides suitable even for adults. The spa is warm, with a jacuzzi and several saunas to warm up in. There is a cat house for homeless animals. The hotel has a disco with a bar, and a magnificent large lobby. There are photographers on the premises who offer reasonable prices and don't impose their service. Many people enjoyed hot mulled wine in the pool bar. There were snacks, lots of fruits, juices from boxes, and sodas in cans (Fanta, Pepsi, Sprite). All kinds of cocktails are made directly in shakers and are beautifully presented. There is a coffee shop by the pool with all types of coffee, as well as various sweets and ice cream. We are very glad that we chose this hotel. The price for the tour and the service provided was excellent. Some tourists were dissatisfied, but I don't understand why they compare hotels in different price ranges. We have stayed in many large chain hotels, but Akka impressed us, and if we had the opportunity, we would have extended our vacation. The hotel offers free transportation to the famous Gainuk Canyon. When you arrive at the hotel, you install an application where you can find the schedule and activities. You can make reservations through the online chat. It was the first time I saw that the number of buses corresponds to the number of guests. Once we had three buses, and the second time we had two. It's not like they only offer one free bus ride. The guide marks everyone. It took us 2 minutes to get from the hotel to the entrance, where we paid $2. We were allowed to walk around for 2 hours. After 2 hours, some people came only for one bus, and they took us and left the second bus waiting for the others. The housekeepers are nice hardworking women who do everything without any comments. They replenish all supplies and clean the floors. We turned the air conditioners to heat mode, but if needed, they would bring an infrared heater upon request. Everything is written in the application. Read it, because later you can't blame the hotel for not knowing or not hearing something. A huge thanks to all the staff for their hard work and effort for the guests. I recommend this hotel. Personally, we liked it. There are no disappointing moments unless you want to find them. Have a great mood and vacation!

We had long wanted to visit this hotel... Well, it finally happened. We arrived on the morning of December 5th for an 11-night stay, filled out the questionnaire, and asked for a room on a higher floor - the reception kindly took note of our request and quickly escorted us to a room on the 3rd floor, with a view of the entrance and the mountains. It was quite a beautiful view. The room itself was good and had everything we needed for convenience. Throughout our stay, the room was cleaned daily, everything was replenished, towels and bed linen were changed regularly. Everything was impeccable. The hotel had a beautiful, large, and well-maintained territory with beautiful vegetation. It's just a pity that during this period, the main pool was closed - an empty pool and caution tapes around it didn't allow us to fully enjoy the hotel's landscape. However, there were still 3 open heated pools - one for children and a pool with slides. This was definitely a big plus if you wanted to enjoy swimming and sliding down water slides in the winter. We also swam in the sea, it wasn't too cold and our bodies quickly adjusted. It wasn't cold getting out of the sea. When the sun was out, we could even sunbathe a little. The spa center was nice. Sauna, steam room, hammam, heated pool, and jacuzzi. We often enjoyed using all of these facilities. As for the food... There was a wide variety of food, but I think we ate too much and never really got hungry. The serving of dishes behind glass was not very convenient, as it took time to make a choice and the staff politely waited for our selection. However, we could also serve ourselves some dishes. The service in the restaurant was always on point. There was a snack bar on the hotel grounds from 14:30 to 16:00. There was also a coffee shop and a pastry shop nearby, so sometimes we skipped lunch and enjoyed a few hours of warm sun. There were not many guests on the premises, but the restaurant was occasionally filled with participants of various conferences and runners. We also visited the à la carte restaurant. It was pleasant when they called our room on the day of our arrival and invited us for dinner. We had already stayed at the Akka Alinda hotel in November 2018, so the à la carte experience was free for us. We had a nice evening at the restaurant. The service was pleasant, and the dishes were interesting. Sometimes it could seem a bit boring during the winter period, as the weather wasn't always sunny and there wasn't much activity. But there was something enjoyable about it. A chance to remember our climate and its discomfort. Everyday life, rush... and getting pleasure from doing nothing... Having a drink at the pool bar, in the lobby bar... and realizing that our money wasn't wasted... and the hotel offered us tranquility and the opportunity to be lazy. Sometimes we ventured out of the hotel, walked to the old road with a tunnel, went down to the rocky beach, took a bus to Migros in Antalya (1.5$ per person), then a taxi for 6$ to Kaleici, and strolled around there. There is something special about this hotel... Culture, style, image, its own atmosphere... It somehow resonates with Akka Alinda. The staff were very friendly. The administration kept in touch via WhatsApp - inquiring about our stay, any wishes or remarks, and announcing events... Closer to our departure, there was a festive mood in the hotel - holiday decorations started appearing... It's been a couple of weeks since our vacation, and now we savor the memories... I don't want to go into detail anymore because a vacation is a personal experience for everyone. Our vacation happened. Thank you to the hotel for a quality stay!

Flew with Tez Tour - (Yasenevo, Golubinskaya Street, 16 +799934747 Welcome) on regular flights with Aeroflot in the morning. We waited for check-in as there were no available rooms, but it didn't hinder us from enjoying our vacation from A to Z. We went for breakfast, then to the beach, and walked around until 5 pm. Then we remembered it was time to check-in to our room. The room was spacious, clean, and had everything we needed: robes, slippers, a kettle (which we didn't use), and the mini bar was refilled daily. The bar provided mineral water, Fanta, Coca-Cola, Sprite, Tuborg beer, and children's cocktails. The hotel grounds were well-maintained and very green, and the heated water park was fantastic. There was also a heated outdoor pool, which we used after October 15 when it started raining and the weather began to cool down, reaching about 25-26 degrees Celsius on October 16. I love October and we often travel during this month. The alcohol at the bars was excellent and the food was good. However, after October 15, you could see that the hotel was transitioning into its winter concept. Overall, I recommend it. If you have any questions, feel free to write - I will answer. P.S. Anything you lose on the hotel grounds can be retrieved at the reception in the morning!

We stayed in Antedon from November 5th to November 15th, 222. There were three adults (myself, my mom, and my aunt) and two children, staying in a family duple room. Our grandmothers had been to the hotel before, but it was my first time based on their recommendation. I must say, I have been vacationing in Turkey annually for 25 years, and this was the first time I had no critical remarks about the hotel's service. The hotel staff, from managers to waiters, really made an effort to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Any questions or issues were promptly resolved through the phone number 6666, which made it easier for the reception staff. We arrived at the hotel at 7 am, left our luggage in the room, and went for breakfast and then to the beach. Check-in was at 2 pm. We were given a room where there was a double bed downstairs and single beds upstairs. This was not suitable for us as the grandmothers did not want to go upstairs. We went to the reception and asked for a room change. It was done the next day since there were no suitable available rooms on that day, and it was done completely free of charge. Housekeeping was done daily, towels were changed daily, and bedding was changed every three days, although it was not even dirty by then. Bathrobes and slippers were replaced as needed. The minibar was restocked daily. The minibar included juices, beer, soft drinks (CocaCola, Fanta, Sprite, FuseTea), and water, following the summer concept. There was a kettle, tea bags, coffee, powdered creamer, white and brown sugar, and sweetener. There were biscuits and pretzels. Everything was restocked. We had no issues at all with our accommodation. In the main restaurant, we always sat at the same table, and the waiters serving that section already knew our drink preferences and brought them as soon as we arrived at the restaurant. In general, the service was very quick and unobtrusive, the staff was excellent! According to our grandmothers, the food was slightly more modest compared to October last year, which I attribute to the end of the high season and the gradual transition to the winter concept. But even in this case, there was enough variety: daily meat (beef, veal, lamb), poultry (chicken, turkey), and fish (trout, mackerel). There was also tuna, and shrimp a few times. The appetizers and hot dish of the day were very enjoyable. The omelets with various fillings for breakfast were delicious. Coffee from the machines, tea from teapots, and freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast. We are not the type of people who try to compensate for the cost of the trip through food and alcohol, so we had more than enough. The bars served anything you asked for. Ice cream in cones from morning till night, packaged ice cream, filled waffles during certain hours, pastries in the pastry shop, coffee in Café Prêtto, tea in the Tea House, güzleme, snack bar... plenty of food. The kids' club was very enjoyable, with wonderful people who love children working there! My daughter always wanted to go to the club, the kids were always engaged in something interesting. As a mother, I felt like it was a waste of precious vacation time, but my child went there happily! The heated pools were a big plus of Antedon. The water in them was really warm, which was a good alternative to swimming in the sea, which was already slightly cool. I went on the slides with my son, and I give them a 5. There was plenty of space on the beach, and it was clean. The sea entrance was gentle like Kemer. Compared to other beaches, Beldibi was really good. The hammam was excellent! We went about five times in one day, even the kids enjoyed it. We missed the evening entertainment as we went to bed after the mini disco. I want to highlight the cleanliness of the hotel. Overall, you can feel that the people working there are like one family who love and take care of their hotel. The atmosphere is very cozy, welcoming, and friendly. Would I like to return to Antedon? Definitely yes. Would I recommend it to friends? Absolutely! It's a fantastic family hotel!!! Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

In the coveted Antedon, I vacationed from November 1st to November 22nd. I chose this hotel mainly because of its location, I love Beldibi, and because I accidentally found myself in Akka Alinda in 2016 and liked it there too! I arrived at the hotel around 1 pm, my room was ready, I asked to change to the upper floor, and after an hour after breakfast, I moved into it! One of the advantages of the winter season and the excellent attitude of the hotel staff 😄 In previous reviews, many note that the rooms are in need of renovation, but I didn't pay attention to it for the first time. I only remembered about this detail upon returning home. No complaints about the room cleaning, if something was not provided upon request through room 6666, everything was brought almost instantly) The menu in the main restaurant is all OK, everything is delicious! But it should be taken into account that it is a winter concept, and what was there in October will not be available at the end of November. And for me, undoubtedly, this is a plus, the fewer temptations, the better 😅 They have an amazingly talented pastry chef! Cakes, pastries, baklava, there are so many of them, and they are all different! It's very difficult to choose just one 😉 compared to other hotels where they only differed in presentation) The alcohol also suited me, I don't like strong drinks, but everything I tried was fine, there is bottled beer, but I liked the draft one better, which is strange for me. The rosé and sparkling wines were also good! Cocktails are not my thing, but everyone around was drinking them, so they are probably delicious😄 And the main positive point for the restaurants and bars is the staff, all the guys and few girls are great!!! I am very grateful to everyone for their attention and excellent attitude💛 On my birthday, I was at the Italian a la carte Olive restaurant (for free, as a regular guest of the network), the menu is really different from the main restaurant, everything is very tasty, portions are normal, and the beef carpaccio is simply divine 😋 I wanted to go there again, but it didn't work out 😔 Congratulations from the staff and guests of the restaurant were very beautiful! Thanks to Raila, a guest relations employee, for organizing my celebration, for her responsiveness and professionalism, she is a very nice girl, as well as the barista from Cafe Preto, my favorite place in the hotel 💛 I did not use the spa services, I was very lucky with the weather, but I went to the sauna a couple of times, which surprisingly was well heated, and then swam alone in the cold pool, it was just great since everyone else was swimming in the heated one. The heated slides for children are great, but due to my age, I couldn't use them😁 But just for the sake of it, I tried all of them😆 In the evenings, there is live music and karaoke in the lobby! In my opinion, they moved the evening events to the indoor area too early, as it was around +19 outside, it was quite comfortable in a light sweater. I spent all my breakfasts and dinners on the open veranda of the restaurant, and I came for dinner at the very end, around 9 pm. In general, the vacation exceeded all my expectations! I'm already dreaming of a new meeting! I hope to see familiar faces💛 ㈏🌠 I wish all the hotel staff happiness and prosperity!

We stayed at this hotel from November 4th to 16th with our 6-year-old child. We were initially placed in one room, but my spouse didn't like the view, so we switched and enjoyed the beautiful mountains of Kemer from the window during our entire stay. The room was spacious and had everything we needed. There was a refrigerator, hairdryer, kettle, air conditioner, television with Russian channels, and the ability to plug in a USB flash drive. The Wi-Fi in the room, as well as throughout the hotel, had excellent reception. The mini-bar was stocked with various snacks, soft drinks, water, juices, and more, which were replenished daily. The bathroom had soap, shower gels, shampoos, robes, and more. They cleaned the room every day, and it was done well. The hotel provided delicious and diverse meals. There were always available tables in the restaurant. There was an abundance of fruits, meats, fish, and cheeses. Freshly squeezed orange juices were served in the mornings. They also served shrimp and calamari as seafood options. There was a wide variety of imported alcoholic beverages, such as Martell, Chivas, Olmeca, Jack Daniels, and more. Ice cream was available throughout the day. There was a snack restaurant where you could have a quick lunch until 4 PM instead of the main meal if you didn't want to stay away from the beach for too long. We also visited the À la carte restaurant Pasa. We liked it, the food was delicious, and it was completely different from the main restaurant, which is the most important thing in this type of restaurant (À la carte). (For those who are familiar with the AKKA chain, one visit is free) The hotel had an indoor pool, sauna, hammam, steam room, and gym. There were also outdoor heated pools (2 for children, one part of the main pool, and one near the water park). The rest were already quite cool. There was also a private beach with a pier, which was convenient for diving. There were always enough sunbeds. We were satisfied with the entire infrastructure. There was also a café with wonderful coffee – I recommend it to everyone. The service was excellent, in line with the hotel's category. We also liked the mobile application through which we could order something or report any malfunctions. They fixed things very quickly. Our child enjoyed the kids' club and went there every morning. The entertainment seemed weak, but considering that we are not fans of all that, we did not consider it a negative aspect. The hotel is clearly not a party place. However, it is perfect for a peaceful family vacation. We considered the worn-out condition of the rooms to be a small downside. If you don't pay close attention, everything is excellent. But if you scrutinize, there are chips, cracks, and so on everywhere. However, considering all the aforementioned advantages, I consider it to be a nitpick. I would also like to mention that all of this is written about the summer concept, which ended on November 18th. Many things may not be operational during the winter concept. Keep this in mind. However, you can still have a wonderful vacation during the winter concept as well (we vacationed in March of last year).

The hotel was visited during the New Year holidays in 2022 with my husband and 4-year-old child. We arrived on December 31st and departed on January 1st. The first impression left a negative feeling as we realized that the New Year's buffet was not included for us. Surprisingly, even our long-time and experienced travel agent was surprised by this. As a result, we spent a good time in the lobby bar where there was live music. Later, we met some acquaintances and found out that the New Year's buffet was boring, so everyone moved to the lobby. I don't remember the exact price they paid, but it was close to $1 per person. We were given a large, beautiful, and perfectly clean room with good mattresses and pillows. All the negative impressions were forgotten when we opened the curtains in the morning and saw the stunning view of the mountains. The natural surroundings were the hotel's biggest advantage. During the winter, the children's pool and adult water park were heated, and we enjoyed sliding down the slides. We even went into the sea once, just for the sake of it. The sea was fantastic and very beautiful. There was a river nearby, and we went there to take photos on the rocks. We really liked the sauna. Every day, after swimming at 11 am and again at 3-4 pm, we went to the sauna to warm up. There were excellent facilities, including a Turkish bath, a steam sauna, and 2 Finnish saunas. We were provided with towels at the spa, and we took them twice a day. The service from the staff was excellent, and the waiters quickly brought drinks. The mulled wine at the poolside bar was delightful, and I had never seen it in other hotels before. We enjoyed drinking it. As for the downsides, I can mention that the hotel was very stingy with food and alcohol in the winter. The food selection was not extensive, and there were not many delicious dishes. Strawberries were only available on December 31st, and the bars did not have basic cocktails like Aperol and Daiquiri. In the end, we drank beer, gin and tonic, and brandy. Definitely not ultra. The hotel also needs to urgently address the lobby area. The stained carpet is dreadful. It's the face of the hotel, and this is just unacceptable. Overall, we are satisfied and had a good rest. For skeptics, I will briefly mention that I have been to Turkey more than once, staying in hotels of different levels, from 3-star to Rios Belek. In the last two years, I have stayed at Trendy Lara twice, Bellis elue twice, and Alva onna Eclusive once.

The best thing about this hotel is its territory and nature! Everything is really beautiful and clean! The whole family quickly caught a rotavirus, it is clear that no one is insured against it, but the hotel does not try to prevent it ... because there is no one in the children's cafe, everyone grabs the same spoon, no control, by the end of the lunch all this dishes and where the food is - everything is dirty and smeared, no wonder everyone gets sick. Vegetables and cheeses are not always fresh, it is evident that they have been lying around. The food in general is very monotonous, I've been to Turkey before and can compare, it is really difficult to find something really tasty, after 5 days I got tired and bored. The hotel is definitely not for those who love to eat DELICIOUS food, not just stuff their stomach. The room cleaning is also of a poor level, in 12 days the floors were never properly washed, they just wiped away some garbage, the floors were dusty and dirty, considering that a child crawls there, it is very unpleasant, even tips did not help the situation. The service is generally not bad, service managers do their best to smooth out all these shortcomings, but the impression of the vacation is not very good, we will not return to this hotel and will not recommend it to anyone. And the price they ask for it during the season is too high, it is not worth that money.

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

I would like to express my gratitude to Akka Antedon hotel for the excellent service, food, and atmosphere. I have been to many hotels in Turkey and have something to compare. I am very picky when it comes to choosing a hotel, so I considered all the details. This time, we specifically chose a family-friendly hotel as we were traveling with a child. The hotel is definitely a solid 5 stars. I would like to mention the food separately – the products are always fresh and of high quality. There is a great variety of dishes, including themed ones. The rooms were cleaned every day, and the bar was free. As for the kids' mini club, it was fantastic. We couldn't drag our child away from the playroom. Everything was great! They took excellent care of the children and were very attentive. I highly recommend this hotel, it truly deserves its 5-star rating!

We stayed at the hotel with my husband from 13.1.22 to 23.1.22. This year I spent a long time choosing a hotel (since in April the trip was canceled due to bad weather and the increased cost of the tour in the 222 season). I haven't been to Kemer for a long time, in 22 or 23, we decided to repeat the trip there with my husband. My requirements for the hotel have not changed: a large and well-kept territory, good service and food, a large beach, a nice room. Overall, my expectations were met. 1. We arrived at the hotel during dinner, checked in quickly, but we didn't like the room. Or rather, not the room itself, but the view from it. I immediately went to the reception and offered money. I was told that there was nothing available at the moment, but a replacement in the morning was possible. At 11 a.m., I went to the reception again - the room was changed without any money!!! (with a beautiful view of the mountains and the sea). This view brought special pleasure in the mornings))) As for the condition of the rooms, there have been many reviews about it. Yes, the rooms need renovation. But everything works, it is bright and pleasant. 2. The territory is large and very beautiful, everywhere you can feel the care. The beach is big but rocky. But this is not really a complaint about the hotel, but about the region. It didn't bother me, as I was prepared and knew the beaches of Kemer well. There were plenty of spots on the beach in October. Since the sun was not as scorching as in summer, we could put sunbeds closer to the sea. There are good areas with canopies and nice sunbeds on the beach. It is clean, constantly being cleaned. Everything you need is near the beach. 3. The bars and cafes left a very positive impression. Very friendly staff, a wide selection of drinks of good quality. We loved visiting the coffee shop at different times of the day and the pastry shop with Viennese waffles)) As for the main restaurant (Divan), here you can find some drawbacks: the staff varies. Some waiters are very attentive and try their best, while others occasionally don't notice you (even tipping doesn't change the situation much). Among those serving the dishes, there was always a very positive attitude! As for the food in the main restaurant, there were many dishes, but I can't say that everything was delicious. I liked the snack restaurant both in terms of the menu and service - if you don't feel like going for lunch, you can have a snack at a table with a view of the mountains. I would like to highlight the à la carte restaurants. We visited the seafood, Italian, French, and Turkish ones. Each of them has its own unique dishes and excellent service. 4. I want to highlight the hotel management's work with the staff as very serious. This was very pleasant and satisfying. I can say for sure that this hotel cares about ensuring that every guest leaves with a positive experience. We had a small incident with the staff. I wrote about it in the hotel's feedback section of the app. The reaction was instant. They replied to me within 1 minute and then tried their best to solve our difficulties and make us feel comfortable. In other cases (for example, regarding towels), they also reacted instantly and later checked if everything was okay. 5. The entertainment didn't really interest us, the shows were not particularly interesting, mainly done by the animators. As for the activities during the day, we saw them multiple times but did not participate. I want to add one more thing. There is a small house near the pastry shop where they sell decorations. But I'm not talking about them. Various handmade toys are sold in this house, very cute ones) They are knitted by the wife of the man who sells decorations. I bought a funny elephant with small ears, such a sweetheart))) Overall, the vacation went on a positive note, we enjoyed everything. I think that I could come back to this hotel.

Second time at the Akka Resort hotel. Beautiful large area, a coffee shop, gözleme, several bars, a beachfront restaurant. Imported alcohol, a diverse menu. Some rooms need cosmetic repairs, but the rooms are spacious. Cleaning is good, service and attitude are okay. We were lucky with the weather: 34 degrees in the sun, 23 degrees in the water. Now, let's talk about some nuances: The hotel claimed that the winter concept would only start on November 17th. We checked in on the 3rd, and the difference became noticeable after a week. The menu was reduced (turkey, lamb every couple of days - the main options were chicken and trout every other day, shrimp was served only once in 12 days), and alcohol would periodically disappear (for example, Jim Beam was replaced a couple of times with some local substitute instead of the regular whiskey). At some point, all the entertainment activities in the evening suddenly moved to the lobby because, allegedly, it got colder. Although in reality, the warm evenings remained as they were in early November. Concerts (previously there were dancers and live music) were completely canceled. Now imagine that all the people who used to spend their evenings on the hotel grounds crowded into the lobby together with karaoke and children's disco. Who came up with this idea is unclear. There is a club and many other facilities on the lower floor... The information about pool heating is also misleading. It is stated that there is heating, but it is worth noting that only one pool, essentially for children, is heated. There isn't much space for adults. However, there are heated slides. Another uncomfortable aspect: there is only one entrance to the water on the pier, the umbrellas are old, and instead of trash cans, there are makeshift iron buckets... Cats roam around the area, as they do everywhere (but they are not intrusive), so be careful. In Akka Alinda, they managed to bring in ringworm, a first in 28 years of my life. There are also tons of seagulls splashing around in the pool and trying to steal food from unattended plates. We paid 23 Euros for 11 nights, including the flight from Minsk. Overall, everything seemed fine, but the last 5 days spoiled the impression.

So, for the first time in more than thirty years of traveling to various cities and countries, I am writing a review about AKKA Antedon hotel because I promised the hotel staff, and promises should be kept...)) I'm writing practically "hot off the press" - we stayed at AKKA from May 24th to June 5th, 2022, two couples with children aged 4, 6, and 9. I won't bore you with the story of the flight and transfer, let's go straight to the hotel... And here, I'll start with the downsides: we arrived at the hotel at 9 in the morning, it's understandable, of course, that check-in should be at 14, but trust my experience, in almost all good "five-star" hotels, we were accommodated much earlier than scheduled. Here, however, we were immediately hinted that either we wait until 14 or, naturally, they offered to resolve the issue for a fee)) We refused to pay, for us, getting the rooms right away was not important, but the most annoying thing is that there were obviously free rooms (99% sure) available, we understood it based on the occupancy of the hotel (during the first 3 days of our stay there, the hotel was clearly not full, but on the 4th day, we already felt the fullness). Well, may the reception guys be the judge!)) Other downsides, such as outdated rooms, beach towels, someone writes about monotonous food (here, by the way, I strongly disagree), are described in previous reviews, I won't focus on them, because in any, even the super-duper hotel, you can always find something to criticize... And now, let's get to the most important point: I have never encountered such a customer-oriented attitude from the staff of all departments in any other hotel!!! This is the most customer-oriented hotel! Thanks to the hotel management (special thanks to Erdogan) for the clear organization of the hotel's operations. I also want to mention the work of the Guest Relations team, any problems that arose were solved promptly and efficiently, so don't hesitate to contact them with any questions, they help make your stay better)). Well, finally, I want to share with you information about visiting the à la carte restaurants: we visited the Italian, Turkish "Saffron", and French restaurants. The dishes, presentation, everything was very good, the only drawback was found in the French restaurant - the service was too slow, for some reason only 2 waiters were working for 6 tables, but maybe we were just unlucky)). I also want to mention the excellent selection of imported alcohol and the great work of the bartenders (I want to highlight Ayla in the lobby bar and Mahmoud in the beach bar). I definitely recommend this hotel to everyone! In terms of value for money, AKKA Antedon is the best offer today!!!

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

The hotel is very suitable for a family vacation. However, it was a bit noisy for us. The location is very beautiful and the grounds are nice. The food is tasty and diverse, but the staff distribution is disruptive and creates small queues. The beach is large and there are always available spots. The entry into the sea is rocky, so special footwear is needed. There are bus stops nearby, making it easy to travel to both Kemer and Antalya.

We vacationed from November 3rd to 12th with my wife and we were very satisfied. It is a fantastic place with stunning views, surprisingly great weather for November, a large and well-kept beautiful hotel grounds, excellent service, and good food - the vacation was a success in every way. Regarding the hotel grounds, it is large, beautiful, well-designed, and cozy. It is very comfortable to walk around, even when the hotel is fully booked, there is no feeling of overcrowding. There are many cozy spots where you can sit and relax. In the evening, the entire grounds are illuminated with beautiful lights, and each tree is illuminated from below with different colors. You can sit at the poolside bar after dinner, sipping on Ballantines, surrounded by this beauty, with a candle lantern on the table, and the moon hanging over the sea - it feels like being in an eastern fairy tale. And to complete the experience, you can hear the muezzin from the neighboring mosque chant the azan. It is hard to leave such a place, but there are places to explore outside the hotel gates in Beldibi. If you turn right and walk past the Rixos hotel, you will come across a long street with small hotels and shops on the left side. On the right side, between the sea and the street, there is a public beach with a beautiful promenade. In the evening, the street and the beach are beautifully illuminated. It is pleasant to take a walk and relax after dinner. During the day, if you walk to the end of the street and turn right towards the sea after the last hotel (Amara Palace), you can reach a pedestrian tunnel in the mountain. From the entrance of the tunnel, you can descend (with caution!) to a wild beach - a beautiful little bay surrounded by seashell cliffs on three sides. The entire journey to the wild beach is about 3 kilometers. I rented a bicycle near the hotel entrance (2 dollars per hour) and it was perfect for the round trip, plus swimming. The hotel also organizes free transfers to Konak Geynuk a couple of times a week. It takes about 15 minutes by bus and you find yourself in the heart of the mountains, which offers a completely different experience than looking at the mountains from the sea. I recommend it! You can sign up for the transfer at the guest relations desk at the reception. Now, about the hotel grounds. The outdoor pool is divided into two parts - a heated pool and a cold pool. Well, not exactly cold - in November, it is around 2°C, which is still suitable for swimming. You can swim the entire pool (about 1 meter) and then transition to the heated part (32°C) by crossing the border - I think it's great. However, there were not many people who wanted to swim in the cold pool. Mostly seagulls were swimming in it. Seagulls, as I understood, are an integral part of the ecosystem of this hotel. These huge, beautiful birds slowly land in the pool right in front of you, and their white feathers reflect the blue of the pool, making them appear blue. All of this happens against the backdrop of the mountains - it is very beautiful. We also liked the spa. There

I love Kemer. The sea, the pine trees, the mountains... It's beautiful! Due to the current situation, my choice of vacation destination was limited, so I settled on Turkey, specifically Beldibi, and the Akka Antedon hotel, and I didn't regret it at all. I had previously contacted the hotel in advance to request an early check-in. They replied that it would be possible. We arrived at the hotel at 8 am, and they suggested that we have breakfast and take a walk for a couple of hours. By 11 am, we were in our room. Room 127. It was located in the main building, and you could just barely see the sea (we had booked a sea side room). We got a connect room with a connecting door, but we were lucky with our neighbors, as it was quiet. The room had everything standard. A double bed, a spacious enough wardrobe, a TV, and a refrigerator. Bathrobes and slippers were provided. There was a tea set. The mini-bar and tea/coffee supplies were constantly replenished as we used them. Russian channels were available: Channel One, Russia 24, RTR-Planeta, and 8th Channel. STS and RT were listed in the menu, but there was no signal. Towels were changed daily, and bed linen was changed every 1-2 days. The bed linen was good, but the bath and beach towels were quite worn out. But these were minor details that didn't really matter. The beach. The beach had tents with well-placed sun loungers, and there was plenty of space. The beach was sandy, with large pebbles at the entrance and then sand further out. It was advisable to wear water shoes or use the pier. All beach facilities were available: showers, changing rooms, and a children's playground. There were wooden walkways for easy movement along the beach. There were refrigerators with water, mineral water, Ayran, and lemonades. The sea was clean, with a blue flag. You definitely won't go hungry in this hotel. Apart from the main meal times, there was a coffee shop (with various types of coffee), a tea house, a pastry shop (ice cream, desserts, waffles), bars, etc. Everything was delicious, and there was plenty of fruit. I indulged in strawberries to my heart's content. And I had a blast with the ice cream, as we don't have such a variety of flavors as the Magnat brand here. All the staff I encountered spoke Russian. Only the girl at the tea house said she didn't understand Russian. Most of the guests were also Russian-speaking. Everyone was enjoying their vacation peacefully. Extending the room until 5 pm cost an additional 3 euros (or 52 Turkish lira). I couldn't pay with my Mir card. The money was initially deducted, then returned. I had to pay in cash. The Wi-Fi throughout the hotel worked perfectly. Not far from the hotel (to the right, across the road, about 5 meters away), there's a Volmar store with fixed prices in Turkish lira. The Mir card works perfectly there. If you don't feel like going to Antalya, you can buy sweets and coffee there as gifts. Almost opposite, slightly to the left, there is a pharmacy. I paid in cash and didn't ask about the Mir card. The vacation went great. I highly recommend the hotel. I would definitely go back there.

The hotel is located in a very beautiful place, near the mountains. The hotel is very suitable for a family vacation. However, it seemed a bit noisy to us. We were disappointed with the food being served behind glass, as many other hotels have returned to a full buffet service. This caused small queues to form. The food is delicious and varied. There is a lot to choose from. The rooms are comfortable. The staff is very attentive. The beach is large, with plenty of available sunbeds. The sea entrance is rocky, so special footwear is required. There is a bus stop nearby, making it easy to reach both Kemer and Antalya. It is perfect for families with young children. For older tourists, it might be better to choose something else.

I travel a lot, but I have never written reviews before. However, I am so upset now that I want to share my frustration in order to warn those considering this hotel. I really love the Akka Antedon hotel; I had a great time there before and I really wanted to go back. Last time, there was an unpleasant moment with the accommodation. They checked me into the terrible room 2213 and promised to move me within the next few days. Instead of enjoying my vacation, I had to deal with moving my luggage and kids around - not very pleasant. This time, they put me in room 2213 again, but I hope it was just a coincidence. I immediately called the agency (I recommend Natalia Katashova, she is in my contacts list) where I booked my tour. They quickly contacted the hotel and the issue was resolved - after lunch, they placed me in a very comfortable room with a view of the playground, which was very convenient with kids. I believe this incident happened due to the high occupancy of the hotel. This was the only downside during the first few days of my vacation; everything else was just like before - warm, attentive, delicious and fun. The holiday activities for children were very well organized. The only problem was when they were giving out bags to the children, both adults and kids were grabbing them, and unfortunately, my child didn't get one, which made him very sad. Other than that, everything was like before, except now they don't have the amazing Turkish salmon and cheeses like Camembert and Roquefort for breakfast, which we really enjoyed during our previous trips. I kindly request the hotel to add these products; it's so nice to enjoy the beautiful view from the breakfast terrace with coffee, freshly baked rolls, salmon, vegetables, and cheeses.

I won't repeat the glowing reviews, but I will simply join in with all the positive feedback. The territory is truly large and well-maintained, with a fantastic water park and a good main restaurant (we didn't try the à la carte ones, as they are paid and the main kitchen is great). I want to specifically mention the quality of service. I haven't encountered anything like it in any other hotel. In Akka, there is an app that is installed upon check-in. It's a brilliant idea, as you don't need to go to the reception to explain what is not working in your room or if something is missing. You simply write a message in the app, and within a few minutes, everything is fixed or delivered to your room. The quality control team also checks to make sure we are satisfied. Overall, a big thank you to the Akka staff for their friendliness and thoughtfulness. They know how to surround you with care and it feels like you are staying with old good friends who want you to be as comfortable and happy as possible. In short, thank you Akka.

This is our second time staying at this hotel. After the first visit, we simply couldn't lower our expectations in terms of the level of service, the completeness of emotions, and the relaxation, including that for the children 😂

We have stayed at this hotel before. We arrived early in the morning and were quickly taken to our room, where we found gifts and greetings for returning guests. We were lucky with the weather, as it was sunny almost the entire time. To understand the weather conditions, it is important to note that if the weather forecast in Antalya is 17-2 degrees, it is actually 3-35 degrees in the sun. So, it was quite possible to get a tan in just a few days. As for the food, there was something for everyone's taste: fruits, meat, fish, and vegetables. Strawberries were served every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For those interested, in addition to beer and wine, there were four types of whiskey, brandy, local martini, and champagne. The bottled beers available were Tuborg Gold and Carlsberg. The waiters were attentive and polite, and there were no complaints this time. The café "PRETO" was always bustling with people and served delicious coffee recipes. A new patisserie with a variety of pastries and ice cream appeared in a new location. They also offered a range of their own branded ice cream in cups and packages. The water in the heated pool was warm, so we swam every day and even went into the sea a couple of times, although the sea was still chilly. In the evenings, after the mini disco, we enjoyed live music by local musicians every other day. There was also a karaoke night once. However, one afternoon, after lunch, an entertainer or, as he proudly introduced himself, "DJ Hussein," played a monotonous melody by repeating it over and over again for over an hour. The sound system operator couldn't be found until hotel staff assisted in locating him. When he finally arrived, he didn't explain his actions. This incident was a significant downside for us that day. During the celebration of Eid al-Adha, the menu changed, with more sweets available in the morning and an excellent buffet with a variety of delicacies served outdoors after lunch. On May 1st, there was a circus performance from Latin America, and on the evening of May 3rd, a late-night party with a bar and snacks was organized at the pier. We dined at the à la carte restaurant once as a gift for returning guests. We also visited the "Pasha" restaurant, which served French cuisine. Everything was delicious, and the service was top-notch. One drawback was the animation activities, which were below par. There were some games and gymnastics during the day, which were understandable and necessary. However, there were no actions or information from the animators in the evenings regarding planned activities. If we happened to attend any events, it was not because of the animators, but in spite of them. Hopefully, things will change in May. Overall, the vacation at this hotel is memorable because of the overall level of service and the friendly atmosphere created for guests. We encountered other guests who had been at this hotel in previous years and keep coming back.

The tour was initially booked at AKKA Alinda 5*. However, since the outdoor heated pool, including the water park, was closed for maintenance during our dates and due to our pickiness, we were relocated to AKKA Andedon 5* :) Since we moved here from AKKA Alinda 5*, comparisons are inevitable. We were kindly welcomed as the relocated guests and quickly checked-in. Where should I start? Let's start with the room. The room, just like in Alinda, was a duplex with a view of the surroundings. Well, this is where Alinda really shines. Only in terms of the exterior. But it was clean and well-maintained. Although it may be a bit old, any repairs or touch-ups were done very neatly. You can feel the personal touch, which is evident throughout the hotel. The concept here is slightly different from Alinda: the "kids" area (two beds) on the top level, and the "adult" area (double bed) on the bottom. There is no isolation or privacy. And there's a somewhat uncomfortable feeling of a balcony looming over the bed, with two pairs of curious children's eyes or dangling legs :)). Each level has its own bathroom: the second floor is equipped with a shower cabin, and the first floor has a bathtub. The room is equipped with everything necessary. Tea station, mini bar (with limited winter concept) restocked daily, safe. And yes, robes are available, and they even bring children's sizes upon request. I even saw them on the tiniest kids. Robes are convenient and you can say it's the hotel's signature clothing :)). And how could you not have a robe when you're regularly moving between the heated outdoor pool, water park, and spa center? As a result, almost the whole day was occupied. Booking time at the spa was done through the hotel's app. Since we formed a rough schedule on the first day, we immediately booked the remaining days for relaxing after lunch. But it should be noted that we were never checked against any lists in this regard. However, in the restaurant for lunch and dinner, they always asked about reservations. The outdoor pool is something, I'll tell you! Warm. We measured it with our travel thermometer, yeah, we bring it with us to resorts, just in case they exaggerate the temperature on the signs :), it showed +28°C. And the water slides were working! Well, I couldn't believe it. Moreover, the water on the slides was almost hot. According to our measurements, it was around +32°C. There were times when we came during the hours when the slides were supposed to work, but they weren't. That was disappointing. You would ask the slide attendant, and they would say, "No problem," and show a message on their smartphone saying they would turn it on soon. And they turned it on just for a couple of children! No, it's all wonderful! As a guest and a client of the hotel, I really appreciate such amenities and entertainment. But darn it, what a waste to heat the February air. That's just my greedy nature "complaining" :)). The area is not huge, but compared to Alinda, it's definitely bigger. Beauty can be seen from every side! Well-maintained, I would say polished, to the point that even a fallen pine cone looks like a work of art, not trash :)). Yes, the closed pool was a bit sad. What can you do? - It's winter. You can have a light snack outside. It's all very simple: nuggets, burgers, fries. There's also a lovely coffee shop and a charming pastry shop, where the selection for a snack is much wider and more diverse. As for children's entertainment: there is a mini club and disco, but my kids didn't go there, they've grown out of it, I guess. There is a playground available, but it's more suitable for young children. And for adults, there are organized activities scheduled for each day of the week. You need to sign up for

We ended up at the Akka Antedon Hotel in January 222, almost by accident (2 adults + teenager). We had never vacationed in winter in Turkey before. The hotel was amazing! The rooms were renovated and had everything necessary for comfort, and the cleaning was good. We stayed in two-story rooms with two bathrooms and two televisions (note that the top is open, so if insulation is important, choose a different type of room). The journey from Antalya Airport took anywhere from 4 minutes to an hour. The road was beautiful, the region itself incredibly green, framed by mountains, and the beach was pebbly, giving the water an emerald color. The "all-inclusive" winter concept for meals was limited, but everything was very tasty, with plenty of options, and there were no queues. To get into the restaurant, you had to download an application and make a reservation based on time, and the application was not simple. I hope all of these COVID restrictions have been lifted by now. The most delicious discovery was the national cuisine, which we had always loved in Turkey, but at Akka it was simply magically delicious!!! The grounds were green, well-maintained, surrounded by pines and cats)))) with a botanical garden on the premises. The water park was heated, and a part of the main pool (with bridges) as well. The weather was comfortable, reaching up to 28 degrees Celsius during the day, and we even swam in the sea. The most pleasant place for me was the Pretto coffee shop with various types of natural coffee, it was love!!! A huge thank you to the hotel staff, you made our winter vacation unforgettable. We hope for a new meeting, we love and miss you!!

It has become a tradition for my husband and me to vacation in the Akka chain in Turkey. In the summer, we prefer Akka Alinda hotel. Akka Antedon is more suitable for winter vacation as it has a better winter concept and a larger area for walks. We booked a room with the tags "regular guests" and "birthday". We arrived in the evening, so we didn't have to wait long for the room. We were given a standard room with the number 1223, which had a stunning view of the mountains and a gift of wine and fruits. The hotel was about 3% full, and there was no overcrowding, very comfortable. The territory is large, green, and well-groomed. There are many cats running around :) We were not very lucky with the weather this time, it was often windy and rainy. The temperature during the day was +18 degrees Celsius. So we couldn't swim in the sea, and we spent more time in the spa area. It is amazing here! Pool, jacuzzi, sauna, hammam. We enjoyed it :) There were heated pools outside (one large pool and the one with a water park). But we hardly swam in them because the water was warm only in the early morning, by lunchtime it cools down and becomes uncomfortable. The water park, as we were told, is operated upon guests' request, but we didn't ask due to the bad weather. One of the advantages of this hotel, which makes us want to come back here again, is the staff! Waiters, bartenders, guest relations, receptionists - all very friendly and kind! The only thing that was disappointing this time was the animation team. We really hope that the hotel management pays attention to this. The animators constantly refer to the fact that there are few people, bad weather, etc. Although they haven't approached anyone or asked anything. And they hardly understand Russian. We barely managed to ask for darts once. And we regretted it... the animator didn't engage us, lacked enthusiasm, couldn't keep score, and finished the game in just 1 minute just so we wouldn't bother him anymore. There is also no evening entertainment; if there was a karaoke night, "not enough people showed up". Again, maybe because no one asked anyone. At least there was live music every other day. We were here two years ago, there were no problems with the animation, both daytime and evening. On Tuesdays, there is a free tour to the canyon. The weather was good on that day, so they didn't cancel the hike. The entrance fee is only 2 euros per person. It is definitely worth going, we really enjoyed it. The food in the winter is excellent, with a wide selection, everything was always very tasty, especially the pizza and turkey. Fresh juices are always available in the mornings. The only premium alcohol available at this time is Red Label. The rest is all local. But they make delicious cocktails. Overall, it was a successful vacation, and I recommend this hotel for a family vacation. We would gladly come here again and again if the issue with the animation team is resolved.

Rest in this hotel is like a journey into a fairy tale. The huge well-maintained hotel grounds allow you to never get bored even on rainy days. The hotel structure unfolds gradually and sometimes completely unexpectedly. It's one of those cases when you think you've seen it all, but no! Around the corner, another pleasant surprise awaits you in the form of a snack bar or free weighing scales in the baggage room. Well, in general, everything is as it should be in a fairy tale)). The staff's attitude towards guests is admirable. The hotel team shows true Eastern hospitality and warmth! After a day, you're already chatting with them as if they were old friends... Nothing bothers you at the hotel. Everything is thought out down to the smallest detail. If you have an apple core in your hand, you can be sure that everything has been taken into account, and not only is there a trash bin nearby, but also a wet wipe in a stylish branded package, so that the guest can wipe their hands)). And so literally everything... It creates a feeling that you're not a guest, but at home, where you feel comfortable and cozy! A lot has been said about the hotel's cuisine, but this does not prevent you from being amazed at the quality of the dishes and the abundance of national flavors in the menu. Sometimes it seems like there are too many spices, but there are plenty of dishes that are made in European traditions. No one leaves hungry). I would like to separately mention the quality of the pizza... It's just delightful! A trip to this hotel can be compared to taking a sip of strong whiskey that you drink all at once, but then you can still taste the rich flavor of the elite drink for a long time! And this motivates you to take the next sip.

I stayed at this hotel during the New Year dates from January 2nd to January 11th. During these dates, the hotel had a 1% occupancy rate, which had its own implications. We booked a Double Family Room. The air conditioners did not work during the winter period, and the temperature on the first floor of the room was wonderful, but it was very stuffy on the second floor, and the constantly open balcony did not help. We had to request a fan, which we received after two days, as it was not available earlier. The room was cleaned perfectly every day, and there were bathrobes for both adults and children, which was very convenient as the air temperature was 16-2 degrees Celsius, and we went swimming outside in the pools and simply put on bathrobes over our swimsuits. The minibar was restocked daily. The hotel has a beautiful well-maintained green area with pine trees, and the nearby mountains offer breathtaking views. There is a lovely coffee shop where you can order different types of coffee, but unfortunately, they couldn't arrange a Five o'clock tea as the pastry shop closed at 4 PM. The restaurant offers a good selection of dishes, so you won't go hungry, but it is a bit small for full capacity. There are lines and crowds everywhere. The waiters and bartenders are very attentive and always friendly. Outdoor activities are well thought out: barrel rolling, mini curling, archery, fun races. We participated everywhere and enjoyed it. For children, there were also master classes in the mini club, but the atmosphere inside the children's house was both damp and hot at the same time, which was not very pleasant. I understand that it's challenging during the winter period. In the evenings, they made an effort to provide entertainment in the lobby or in the hall on the lower ground floor, with live music and karaoke. A special joy was the heated pools outside for children and adults, as well as the winter-operating water park. It was delightful! We didn't dare to swim in the sea, although some brave souls did, but sitting or lying on the beach in a lounge chair was also enjoyable. Overall, we were satisfied with our vacation.

I was disappointed with this hotel. We arrived at 12 o'clock, there weren't many people, but they delayed the check-in until three o'clock until we started to complain. There was a fruit bowl and a bottle of wine in the room which was nice. However, the bathroom was missing a complete set of toiletries, so we had to ask for them to be restocked. The bathtub itself was old, although it had been renovated, which looks strange for a 5-star hotel. Another thing I didn't like was the handheld showerhead in the bathroom instead of a full shower. The room cleaning was superficial, the floors were not mopped under the bed (see photo). The hotel grounds were okay, but the beach was not cozy or clean during the off-season, and you couldn't walk along the seafront much (see photo). I had to think about what to do in my free time. We attended yoga classes held in the hall where there were discos in the evenings, which created an unpleasant atmosphere. The carpeting was dirty and smelled like cat urine, and the yoga instructor conducted the classes in a subpar manner. There is a gym, a hammam, a sauna, and an indoor pool. However, I didn't like the bar as the drinks were cheap and of low quality. The food was not bad, but there was a lack of variety in the products, except for cheap fish. Unfortunately, the weather was also bad, with constant rain, and the hotel did not show any concern for its clients here either as there were no umbrellas available. Why did I even choose to come to this hotel in January? What were the advantages? I could have relaxed at home instead. p.s. And also, there are cats everywhere. I don't have anything against them, but it's excessive (see photo).

I'll start by saying that I adore Kemer! No other resort pleases the eye like this one, with its pine trees, mountains, and sea. I stayed at this hotel 1 year ago and the service is still top-notch. I really love AKKA hotels, they all have one concept - great service! I won't go into detail about the hotel, I'll just mention the important aspects for me. The staff is very attentive! Special thanks to Alper at the reception for solving our issues and to the barista, a wonderful girl with perfect coffee! The staff never shows any signs of being tired of tourists. The territory is large, green, with no bald patches or burnt grass, everywhere there are trees, pine trees, eucalyptus, lots of shade. The beach area is very beautiful, often turquoise in color. We have very warm and pleasant memories, we will definitely come back!

We arrived early in the morning at the hotel, but they made it clear that we couldn't check-in right away, even for an extra charge. Overall, the hotel is decent, with a great area and the hotel itself is not new, but not too worn out. They constantly clean, wipe, and sweep. The entertainment is lacking, it doesn't bring much fun to the vacation, especially on the beach. The beach is nice, despite the rocks at the entrance to the sea. There is an excellent coffee shop near the main pool and ice cream available almost 24/7 - Magnum, Oreo. There is so much to say about the bars, as they please everyone. There is a huge selection of quality imported alcohol - Chivas 12, Jack Daniels 7, Ballantine's, J.B, Absolut, etc. HOWEVER, there is one huge downside to the hotel, and that is the main restaurant ((((: The food is like in an ordinary cheap restaurant - pasta, fries, bread, standard sausages and hot dogs (impossible to eat). Though there are a couple of decent cheeses. Beans, mushy dishes, the grill outside is not up to par either - in the evening, it's almost always undercooked. The fish smells like mud and swamp, and if something is better in terms of food, they try to hide it (salmon steak, calamari salad - under-seasoned and bland, like most of the food). The food doesn't live up to the hotel's concept.

My sister and I stayed at the AKKA ANTEON hotel from January 2nd to January 8th, 222. My sister had already been to this hotel, so we chose it without hesitation. Of course, we had never been to Turkey in winter before, but now we will consider winter vacations in Turkey as well. We were lucky with the weather, with temperatures ranging from +22 to +24 during the day. We even dared to swim in the sea (+19), although there were warm outdoor and indoor heated pools available. We were accommodated in a wonderful apartment on the 4th floor, room 341. Bathrobes, slippers, shower gel, shampoo, body lotion, hair conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, a razor, and a shower cap were all provided. We were checked in without any delays, and there was already a complimentary plate of fruits and a bottle of red wine waiting for us in the room. Also, as repeat guests, we received a free dinner at the à la carte restaurant, which in our case was French cuisine. Since we had a two-bedroom suite, we had two televisions, which was very convenient for our family. The staff was friendly, polite, and very attentive. The food was excellent, very delicious. Perhaps there was not as extensive of a variety as in the summer concept, but it was sufficient for choices. The scenery was stunning, with mountains and greenery. It was a pleasure to walk around the area. We enjoyed everything and highly recommend it!

I haven't been to my favorite Turkey for two years. We took a long time to decide, but after visiting Akka alinda in 219, we planned to go to Alinda again, but it was closed, so we chose Antedon instead. We stayed from October 2nd to October 9th. Upon arrival at the hotel around 11:30, we were given an excellent two-bedroom family room. It was spacious with 2 LED TVs, a kitchen, and a gorgeous balcony. It was especially convenient that the room was on the first floor. The accommodation was top-notch. The area was green and beautiful with pomegranate trees, lemon-lime trees, and pine trees. The view of the mountains was breathtaking. Some people mentioned that the sound of prayers from the mosque was annoying, but I have to say it added to the atmosphere of the vacation. Another plus was the interesting evening shows, especially the circus performances. The sea was warm and clean now, but the beach on the right had huge slippery rocks, and the special entrance didn't help. So, it was better to swim on the left side of the beach or from the pier. Snorkeling gear is necessary! There were enough sunbeds, but many of them were unoccupied with towels on them to claim as taken. The pool was refreshing after the sea, but I didn't feel like swimming in it. The food was outstanding, a solid five stars. They had everything except caviar. Seafood, like crayfish, crabs, calamari rings, salmon, and all kinds of meat except pork. Ice cream was available both packaged and scooped. The alcohol was of high quality, imported. As a lover of Jameson whiskey, I can say that it was excellent. They had three types of bottled beer, liqueurs, rum, cognac, and Absolut vodka. They could make any cocktail. In conclusion, Antedon is an excellent five-star hotel! Our next vacation will be only at Akka!

We liked everything except the food, most likely it's our own fault, for example, we don't like and don't eat lamb at all, but there is so much of it that you don't know what to take, even a lamb cutlet in a cheeseburger. The chicken seems to be beautifully roasted, but tasteless and bland. In any case, we brought 2 kg of food with us, so no one will go hungry, but personally we stopped going for lunches altogether because it's too monotonous, we wanted our own homemade food. The orange juice for breakfast, which is positioned as freshly squeezed, is of course diluted with water (my husband loves orange juice and constantly drinks it, so he can definitely tell if it's freshly squeezed). But what won my heart was the baklava, I probably gained weight because of it. They pour any type of alcohol you ask for, but it's not always clear according to what logic, for example, Bacardi rum is charged, but Chivas and Jameson whiskey are free. The territory is simply stunning, it's not very large, but incredibly beautiful and well-maintained. By the way, there is a huge number of sick/coughing people, but that's not the hotel's issue. The room is not bad, we thought it would be worse, but in any case, I agree with the previous reviews that there is room for improvement. The cleaning is good, although it was very strange how the mini-bar was restocked, cola was almost never provided, even though 2 were supposed to be included, but because there were refrigerators near the pool with plenty of drinks, including cola, we didn't bother. The staff speaks Russian excellently, except for the reception (which is very strange). In any case, we recommend the hotel, but we wouldn't come back ourselves.

We spent our vacation in September 222. The hotel is luxurious. Everything about it is magical: the staff, the location, the attitude towards the guests, and the hotel itself. The beach is clean and the area is well-maintained. The food is delicious and diverse (they even served crabs and quails), as well as the drinks (juices, authentic French brandy of different brands, whiskey, various cocktails, etc.). By the way, if you want a tasty cocktail, you can approach the bartender Yoshiro (beach bar). There are plenty of entertainment options for everyone's taste. The animators are wonderful, so you won't get bored during the day or night. And before going to bed, you can visit the lobby bar, have a peaceful conversation and enjoy any kind of drink. There are areas for children of all ages - for dining and activities. Parents can fully relax and unwind. It's worth mentioning that the food is available 24 hours a day. I really liked Suede, a lovely and pleasant girl. She's probably a waitress. The hotel is so amazing that it's impossible to describe it in just a few words. There are plenty of excursions to choose from. The premises have a water park, numerous pools, a gym, and various bars where you can enjoy both alcoholic beverages and delicious coffee, and have some ice cream. There is also a very touching shelter for sick and old cats. And the sea... It's magical - transparent and clean, thanks to the pebble beach. And even though I'm not a great swimmer, I had a lot of fun. When you are surrounded by silky waves, you can forget about all your problems... There are many places to take stunning photos with a view of the sea and mountains. This hotel is wonderful, I highly recommend visiting it!

The hotel is a 4-minute drive from the airport, the rooms are not new, but everything is clean and tidy, with white robes and slippers (which we didn't use 😁). Everyone speaks Russian, and they accept Visa and Sberbank online - feel at home!) Beautiful well-maintained green area, plenty of entertainment for children, it seemed to me that 99% of the guests were families with children! There are mini clubs, slides, pools, a playground, and a children's restaurant (which offers various instant cereals and purees for infants), plus there is a blender, some parents brought broth, boiled vegetables, and steamed meat (all without salt) and made soups and purees for their infants; there was also a microwave in the children's area. There is nothing to complain about when it comes to food: there is a wide variety (fish, meat, plenty of fruits, vegetables), and everything is delicious. Once, they even made syrniki for breakfast ㉍🏻. My husband always had orange juice for breakfast and only towards the end of the holiday, he told us that it was fresh juice 🤬 The hotel has its own coffee shop (a wide selection of delicious coffee. Some guests brought coffee from this cafe to the dining hall for breakfast), and there was a mini bakery near the pool where they made waffles. Near the beach, there are large refrigerators with beverages (juices, water, lemonades, beer, kefir/ayran) - you can take as many bottles as you need. And every evening, as everywhere, there was mini disco. Every evening, there were concerts for adults, which alternated with a disco held on the pier. There is an ATM, pharmacy, and small shops with souvenirs, flip-flops, and toys near the hotel (within a 1-minute walk). Overall, we liked it. Everyone we met there has already been to this hotel at least twice, and some have been there for the 19th time!!!!!!

We stayed at Akka Antedon from July 29th to August 12th, with our son and spouse. It was our first time at Akka Antedon. For the past 5 years, we have consistently stayed at Alva Donna World Palace. To be honest, we did not like the hotel in the first few days... The hotel grounds were not cozy, the rooms looked tired, there was high humidity, and so on. However, the friendly and welcoming staff made up for these shortcomings. The lobby bar: Ayla, the bartender, is so positive, responsive, and kind! The cocktails she makes and their presentation, mmm! Irem and Ahmet Can, the waiters at the lobby bar, serve us with such speed and, most importantly, with sparks in their eyes! The main restaurant: Murat S., the waiter in the main restaurant, is the most cheerful waiter I've ever encountered, it's very pleasant! Mereym Anne makes amazing güzleme and she's so kind! The Guest Relations girls help resolve any issues. They would call from the call center every time to check if our questions were resolved, if there were any complaints, and if everything was good. In other words, they never left us without attention! The internet at the hotel is great, it works on the beach too! I didn't like the spa, I went for a peeling with a massage. It was very strange that one person does the peeling while another does the massage. You wait steamy and sweaty for both the peeling and massage, about 1 minute each, under the air conditioning. The spa reception did not give me a discount, even though they gave it to everyone else. The discount amount was $1, it's a small amount, but it left a sour taste. The food in the restaurant is of high quality. There is a lot of delicious fish, grilled/fried/stewed! Overall, I want to say that the memorable thing about Akka Antedon is the staff! I want to thank them once again for their hard work, friendliness, responsiveness, and desire to make our stay unforgettable!

The hotel is just awesome. The views from the hotel are superb, whether it's by the sea or in the mountains. The territory is large and green. The pool is long, semi-circular, and has varying depths. The water park is cool, I enjoyed it and got an adrenaline rush. The sea entrance is pebbly, so it's better to buy water shoes immediately. If you forget, it's better to buy them outside the hotel in the shops as they are much cheaper there. The water itself is clean and transparent, there are enough sun loungers. There are fish swimming by the pier, and if you feed them with bread, there will be a huge number of them. The food is fine, you can find something for every taste. There are many shops near the hotel, and everything is reasonably priced (you can and should negotiate). The kids' club is diverse, but on our first day, we either got sick, got too cold, or got infected, but I think it depends on the child's immune system. The room is cleaned daily, and the bar is restocked. There is a tea set. In the end, we were all satisfied. I recommend this hotel!

We stayed from November 16th to November 23rd, 222 AD. We had been to this hotel before, so we knew where we were going. The hotel itself hasn't changed much, with a large, well-maintained area and lots of greenery. It's very pleasant to walk around in the evening. We didn't swim much in the pools, only in the sea. The water was excellent, and we were lucky with the weather as there was no rain and the temperature was around 23 degrees Celsius, just what we needed. The staff was very friendly and tried to help with any problems. There was one incident where the housekeeper forgot to leave towels, but after calling the reception, they brought them within 15 minutes. The reception understood and spoke Russian, and the only thing that bothered us a little was that the restaurant served portions from the chef, although there were no restrictions. It felt as if it was due to COVID-19. The first five days had more variety, including a grill, but once the season ended, everything became more limited, even the fruits were served and the minibar became smaller. The local alcohol left much to be desired, it felt watered down. We enjoyed the tasty treats with coffee, respect to the bartender and the delicious pastries. Overall, we had a good rest. The sauna and hammam were okay, nothing special. Almost everyone at the hotel was Russian, with only a few foreigners. Overall, we liked the hotel, but it would be better if they didn't limit the buffet and allowed guests to serve themselves, although the portions from the chef were decent.

Check-in - we arrived at 1 am and were not immediately checked in, even though the hotel was half-empty. They only gave us a room with a courtyard view the next day - there was noise and commotion round the clock. The room was only changed the following day, and it improved slightly. Bars - they serve imported alcohol and make cocktails with it only if you specify the brand; otherwise, they pour cheap alcohol by default. I drink alcohol without ice and I inform all the bartenders about this when ordering, but they still put half a glass of ice. Therefore, there is no complete relaxation during the vacation, you have to keep an eye on everything. I came to a five-star hotel, but they serve alcohol like in a three-star hotel. Restaurant - the food is mediocre, there were no shrimp and mussels, but at least there was fish and meat every day. Another downside is that you cannot walk from the restaurant terrace to the hotel territory; you have to go back into the restaurant and pass through it to exit the hotel - it is very inconvenient and creates unnecessary crowding. Another major downside of the restaurant is the limited coffee machines - they only have some tasteless coffee with water, no cappuccino or latte - it is not up to a 5-star standard. Animation - darts, boules, yoga - those are during the day. The evening shows are very short and boring - mostly people from outside doing dances. Then there is live music or a DJ - only the twin girls were good, they put in effort, others sang standing like robots, and the DJ was always smoking and changing tracks. There is also a disco in the club, but you have to find it yourself, none of the animators lure people there, so not many people go, and the disco operates very little. Sea and territory - everything is very good! Café - thanks to the friendly barista girl, it was great! Overall impression - the hotel is well advertised by travel agencies, but it is overrated - there is room for improvement! Someone stole my beach towel - I went to collect towels and told them that someone took mine. They said it wouldn't go beyond the hotel, but they didn't give it back and sent me to the reception for a fine. It's a small thing, but it greatly spoiled my mood. I went to the pool area at closing time, everyone had left, and there were a bunch of unused towels. I waited until a staff member came to collect them - I told them one was mine and exchanged it for a card. This should not happen in a five-star hotel.

DECEPTION WITH SUMMER CONCEPT We fell for the hotel's extensive advertising about extending the summer concept until November 18th because we often travel in the autumn, and even in good hotels in Turkey, you can feel the end of the season. So it's incredibly disappointing and regrettable to have wasted money and be disappointed with our vacation. The hotel has a luxurious area, beach, and service - the staff tries very hard, and everything is great here, even the bars are at a decent level. But the food is some kind of horror, and in all my 16 years of traveling to Turkey, I have never encountered worse cuisine! Not only is there a severe cost-cutting on products, but the cooking is also terrible - they have managed to ruin the ingredients! Breakfast is very meager - no fish at all, the cheese is the cheapest, the porridge is tasteless and cold, and all the food is served on a plate. As a result, to get a ready-made omelette, you have to wait in line where they prepare omelettes upon request! In the end, the ready-made omelette is cold and burnt, the eggs are pre-fried, so they are both burnt and cold! The coffee at breakfast is terrible, so many guests, including us, went to the coffee shop at the opposite end of the hotel to get a delicious coffee for breakfast - it was like a breakfast quest! At dinner, the rice was so cheap that it had small stones in it. One of these stones damaged my tooth. One morning at breakfast, we saw how they brought salmon to one of the guests - all the vacationers were indignant, what kind of special treatment is this, who are these privileged guests? We have never seen such lawlessness anywhere else! The selection at lunch and dinner was also meager, everything was burnt, and the fried dishes were soaked in a huge amount of oil. In general, I will say about the cuisine - it is NOT TASTY, AT ALL! Despite the announced summer concept, the choice of dishes became scarcer with each passing day - the buffet was reduced by half, and the dishes were a complete mess! What a way to deceive tourists - announcing an extension of the summer concept, raising prices to the level of premium hotels, and in reality, it's a disaster! In the end, the opinion about the hotel is mixed, namely everything is great except for the food - it is terrible! We are not picky when it comes to cuisine; we like everything everywhere, but in this hotel, every meal was torture.

We stayed in May with three children. We loved the hotel! The size of the territory is small - perfect for children! It's easy to find everything. It's safe everywhere! Despite the small size of the territory, everything is available! Very compact and convenient. The staff is very friendly. The separate café makes excellent coffee, and the bars have great cocktails. There is an incredible amount of diverse food. We didn't even make it to the à la carte restaurants. The entertainment is fantastic - both for adults and children. I read in reviews about the old rooms, and it's true that you can see they were made a while ago, but they are still of good quality and beautiful. The cleaning is done well. The hotel even has a night club! I didn't know about it at first. You can't hear the music unless you get close. It's great for a family hotel! The entertainment ends at 11pm, and you want it to continue, but you can't go far from the children. The hotel offers a stunning view of the mountains from the territory.

I rested with my friend at this hotel from May 16th to May 24th. Everything was so excellent, simply amazing!!!! Very friendly and attentive staff, and only half a day of bad weather. The activities were at 100% capacity - aqua aerobics, gym, water park... it gave me goosebumps... I want to go back to this hotel again, and the evenings were so beautiful, the performances and dance shows were never repeated, costumes, music, staging were all top-notch. The restaurant astonishes with its abundance, there is everything... Crabs, shrimp, mussels, any choice of meat, fruits and desserts galore... Very attentive waiters, they bring the drinks themselves so you don't have to go around, there is a separate menu for small children, and I noticed that they also have options for those who don't want to gain extra kilograms... everything is available, boiled and steamed. But as they say, to each their own. They make amazing coffee at the lobby bar, and the café bar by the pool is also great!!! I want to separately mention the aqua aerobics instructor, such an energetic guy... RESPECT!!! And I also really enjoyed the photo studios, they were just fantastic. Roman made my vacation unforgettable for a long time, such shots are worth a lot, thank you so much Roman. I recommend this hotel for young people as well as all age groups... Oh, I also wanted to mention that we were warned to be careful and not get into conflicts with people of other nationalities... So, we interacted with Lithuanians and Ukrainians, they were all peaceful and friendly, the most important thing is to be human yourself.

We have been there for the second time. Before that, we celebrated New Year's there and decided to experience the summer concept. There is definitely a difference. We were amazed during New Year's, and now it's even better. There is a snack bar, refrigerators with drinks, and individual ice cream. There are also more bars. The food has expanded, of course. You can have breakfast, lunch, and dinner outside. There are definitely more people :) A lot of children, even though it's not yet summer vacation. The animation during the day and in the evening is great. There were parties on the pier as well. Special thanks to Inna, who greets at the entrance of the main restaurant. She is always very friendly and welcoming. Also, to the guest relations girls. And, in general, to all the staff. The service was pleasing again. Care is felt in everything. When we checked in as returning guests, there was a bottle of champagne, nuts, and fruits in the room. The cleaning was done every day. The only thing that probably disappointed us a bit was the late check-out room. We were flying out in the evening and decided to take "late check-out" to have a place to relax and freshen up. But in the end, we didn't really want to go to that room :) It was depressing. Our room was occupied, and we were offered another one. I didn't think such rooms existed :) Everything was fine, except there were no windows or balcony. It was just a solid wall. Because of this, it smelled damp, and it was very cold and dark. It felt like you were in a basement somewhere. We thought it might be a staff room. P3 or 3, something like that. I don't remember exactly. The cost of late check-out was 25 euros if someone needs it. But the hotel is still in our hearts, as always. We will definitely come back :)

Departure from Chisinau was at -15 degrees Celsius. Around 4 in the morning, we were already at the hotel, and our luggage was stored in the luggage room. We rested in the hotel lobby on soft sofas. Breakfast was served at 7, and then we changed and went to the beach. We checked in after 11 and were given a room on the 3rd floor with a view of the mountains. The room was spacious for two people, with two separate beds, a sofa, and a chair. There was a table and two chairs on the balcony. The room had bathrobes, slippers, a free safe, a kettle, and tea and coffee bags. The mini-fridge was stocked with canned beer, Fanta, Coca-Cola, Sprite, juice, and water. The hotel grounds were spacious with lots of greenery, very beautiful. There were two pools on the premises with depths of 14cm and 12cm. One of the pools had heated water. There were a coffee shop, a beach bar, and a snack bar. There were also fun water slides. The beach was large, with plenty of sunbeds. There were not many people swimming in the sea because the water was still a bit cold, but it was easier to find a spot near the pools. After 11, a cool breeze blew in from the sea. The beach bar served Tuborg and Carlsberg beer in glass bottles and on tap, as well as vodka, Martini, Baileys, wine, champagne, and other drinks. The main restaurant was large, with a terrace. On the third day of our vacation, due to the pandemic, the food was served behind a glass barrier. The menu included meat, fish, salads, herbs, cheeses, soups, and desserts. They also served a variety of fruits such as oranges, pears, apples, bananas, strawberries, grapefruits, melons, and watermelons. The guests at the hotel were diverse, with many families with young children. There was children's entertainment, a children's pool with a slide, and a children's room (which I called the "Police" room) where you could leave your child with animators who would take care of them while you were occupied. It was warm during the day, but still a bit chilly in the evenings, so we wore bathrobes. Check-out was as usual before 12. We stored our luggage and went back to the beach until 5 pm. We asked if we could keep the towels until our departure, and they allowed us to do so without any problems. The transfer was scheduled for 4:30 pm and they arrived exactly on time. We departed from Antalya at 9:15 pm (with a 15-minute delay at 9:03 pm) and arrived in Chisinau at 11:02 pm. In Chisinau, there was a light rain and it was +13 degrees Celsius. Thank you to AviaTur travel agency for organizing our vacation. I recommend the hotel. Have a pleasant vacation!

I really enjoyed the vacation and the few downsides didn't spoil it at all. + The lobby, bars, and reading room are beautifully decorated. The furniture is amazing, and I want to admire every wardrobe and chair. + There is a mobile app where you can order cleaning, repairs, ironing, hangers, and other items (shampoos, lotions, etc.). You can also submit requests, complaints, or compliments, and everything is taken care of immediately. + Everyone speaks Russian, and very well. + The territory is beautiful and well-maintained. + The room is spacious. Two beds and a sofa fit comfortably with plenty of space left. The shower has great water pressure, and hot water is available immediately. + The spa. The hammam and saunas are free and quite good. + The coffee is delicious, made from beans. + The ice cream is tasty, and there's plenty of it. + The salad bar is excellent. Generally, all vegetables and fruits in the hotel are top-notch. The selection is not extensive, but it's so delicious. + The mini-bar is fully stocked with soft drinks, juice, beer, and cookies, which are replenished daily. + The cocktails are beautiful, stylish, and tasty. We enjoy the non-alcoholic ones a lot and the alcoholic options are also said to be great. + The water slides. The water park is small, but it has everything you need and it is heated. -The juice in the cafeteria is terrible. We bring packages from the room instead. -The grilled food outside is not tasty. Everything is cooked in too much grease and not prepared properly (the salmon was dried out, and the dorado was raw inside). -The snack restaurant is also prepared with the same grease. It is impossible to eat the shawarma. -The warm pool is standard at 26 degrees Celsius, which is not warm when it's freezing outside. I asked for it to be heated and raised by 2 more degrees. It became comfortable. -At the end of April, it seemed like the summer concept was already in place, but the pier is still being assembled for weeks. They only hung the fabric on the umbrellas, and we got sunburned without it. There are no shows.

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

Good afternoon. We arrived at the hotel on April 22, 223. The hotel itself is quite tired in terms of furniture, it seems like no one does anything. But the grounds are very well-maintained and I liked that a lot. The room is fine, everything is standard. The minibar is good and gets replenished every day. There are two outdoor heated pools, but they are always crowded during this time. I guess it's the same everywhere. The concept of drinks in the main restaurant is strange. For dinner, you can have wine and other drinks except champagne. The wine itself seemed too strong and I didn't like it. It made me grimace when I took a sip. Honestly, the food selection is not that great, but the outdoor grill station saves the day. Without it, it would be quite disappointing. I don't know how it will be during the high season when the hotel is fully booked, but there were occasions when the grilled chicken wings were undercooked. Another surprising thing about the food was that the mashed potatoes were watery. To me, it's just unacceptable for a supposed 5-star hotel. My friends went to the "paid"! French restaurant and they said that both the salad and the ambiance were disappointing. The wine was equally unpleasant. It turns out the hotel only started operating on May 1, 223. They only built a pier with a pontoon on that date, and the evening entertainment was held at the snack bar. As for the beach, it's okay, but it has pebbles. The volleyball court is located in a paid area with cabins that cost 1 euro per day, and balls often fly there, which is a strange decision. The animation staff are alright, but there's a feeling that they rush through their half-hour games and disappear. You can hardly see or hear them. I understand it might be part of the concept, but it's silly for a family hotel. I don't want to judge too harshly, but I have something to compare it to. The kids' club was also strange. We wanted to leave our 7-year-old boy there as he was too old for the mini club, but a slightly older girl asked how old he was and if he knew how to play cards. She said he didn't fit and showed us her photo. It was a strange approach, so we didn't go there. The water park is nice and has heated water. Oh, I forgot, the TV in the room didn't show TNT and Russia channels. There were several strange unknown channels, which I didn't like. Overall, it's a standard 5-star hotel without any "wow" factors. It's cool, but it's hard to judge the value for money right now. It's more likely to be good than not, but they need to work on the shortcomings instead of making excuses.

Stayed at this hotel with my family for 1 day. Liked the hotel. The food is diverse, each evening has its own concept. There is a special dietary menu. Rooms are cleaned every day, everything is clean, there is shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion. Robes and slippers are also provided in the room. The hotel has an app where you can request items that have run out online. Ironing board and iron are provided for free from 16:00 to 23:00 for 3 minutes. The beach is pebbly, so we preferred to enter the sea from the pier as it was painful for the children to step on the stones. There weren't too many people on the beach, we always found places if they were not taken early. There were different shows every evening, followed by different programs (karaoke or live music). There was animation, various entertainment, and sports programs. The hotel also had a gym, a Turkish bath, an indoor pool, and a jacuzzi. Overall, we had a good impression of the hotel, we would come again.

Hotel with a very warm and friendly atmosphere. Point by point: 1. Territory. Large and well-groomed. There is a huge, picturesque pool surrounded by pine trees. 2. Beach. There are always available sunbeds. There is a pier with sunbeds, from which you can jump. To the right of the pier in the sea, there are large rocks, to the left - small pebbles with sand. There are bridges to enter the water. 3. Water park. Quite good for a hotel. Children are allowed on all slides. But on the big slides, if the child is less than 1 year old, they must ride with an adult. 4. Food. Good, high quality. There are always several types of meat and fish for lunch and dinner. Some dishes are "behind glass", they are served by employees, but even if there are queues, they are small and move quickly. Employees serve you with a smile, giving you whatever and how much you want. Waiters are very attentive: they quickly take away dirty plates and bring drinks. 5. Kids club. Deserves separate praise! We have stayed in more expensive hotels where kids clubs were better equipped. But children have never spent so much time in the club before. I have a hard time taking them out of it. It seems to me that the secret is that there are many Russian-speaking employees in the club who engage with children: make crafts, organize various games... 6. Animation. Very friendly team. During the day, there are standard activities. In the evening, there is always a good show. Usually, live music continues until 23:30. Then you can go to the closed night club (but there are usually few people there). Dance lovers may get bored. Only once a week, they set up equipment on the pier and organize a disco (instead of the evening show and live music). 7. Room. Pleasant, everything works. The hotel is located in the town. Nearby there are pharmacies, shops, and a park on the waterfront. I definitely recommend the hotel for a family vacation.

Wonderful hotel! We stayed at the end of June-beginning of July 223 and had a great time and relaxed! The large green territory, the sea is clean, the beach - sand with pebbles - we always found free sun loungers on the beach. For children - plenty of entertainment, a great mini club, children's pools with slides, and a children's disco in the evenings. Every evening - different shows, live music. The food - it's a huge variety of everything and always, and fruits, and seafood, and fish, and ice cream, and so much more that it's even hard to imagine that you can eat so much :))) Practically all the staff speaks Russian. I had a peeling and a foam massage at the hotel spa, and then also took a massage course. I recommend the master Mehmet Aras, he worked wonders with my problem back. And to keep wonderful memories, be sure to have a photoshoot with the local photographer Roma (Ramill), you will definitely not regret it!!! Practically all the staff speaks Russian. I recommend the hotel! The only downside is the somewhat "tired" room inventory, but if you don't pay attention to the non-luxury furniture, you will have an excellent vacation!

Pleasant stay. Luxurious hotel. Everything is top-notch. Highly recommended for families. The food is of high quality with a wide selection. I didn't try any alcoholic drinks except for beer. The water park is good. The entertainment is average, not pushy. There is a kids' club, but my child only went once and didn't want to go again. It's not easy to get to the sea, but there are beach entrances and a pier. I didn't like that tractors and shuttles drive on the lawns. The pool is excellent. The coffee shop has all kinds of drinks, but they are not good quality. The coffee is not great, but the tea is good. The staff is well-trained. Room cleaning is normal. The fridge was always restocked. The disco near the hotel is not great, the mini disco for kids is better.

We arrived at approximately 8 o'clock in the morning and received our room at 11. Our room had a partial view of the sea and also had a magnificent view of the surroundings and mountains. The hotel had a very good territory and infrastructure, with a large, well-designed green area. Everything was very comfortable and clean, with big, clean pools, some of which were heated since the weather was not favorable at the end of May. The heated pool was mainly used by children. The beach was long, with fine gravel and gradually transitioning to medium-sized pebbles. There were specially equipped entries for those who were not comfortable entering the sea from the shore. The food was good and varied, with waiters always nearby and ready to assist in choosing beverages. As for alcohol, I cannot comment as we do not consume it, but there was a wide selection available. I recommend hotel guests to visit the coffee shop; you will be very pleased. I would like to separately mention the massage. The masseur, Ferhat, was excellent at his job. I had a therapeutic massage and felt much better afterwards. It really helped me, so I definitely RECOMMEND going for a massage with him; you won't regret it. The reception staff always tried to help quickly and efficiently. They were an excellent team. I definitely plan to return to this hotel again! I enjoyed everything about it! Previously, we stayed at Akka Alinda, which falls short in comparison to Antedon in all aspects.

We were on vacation with our family. It was our first time in Turkey. We had a positive experience traveling in mainland and island Greece. We arrived in the morning and our room was ready by 2 pm. The reception staff spoke Russian and were friendly. The hotel grounds were very compact, there wasn't much space to walk around, only along the beach or between the pools. About 7% of the guests were Russians, while the rest were mainly Polish, Romanian, and Kazakh. We booked a Family Double Room with a Sea View. The room was in the main building on the 4th floor, room number 2438. One side of the room had a view of the sea and a canal with boats, while the other side had a view of neighboring hotels and the street, which wasn't very picturesque to be honest. The room was two-story, with a double bed upstairs and two single beds downstairs. There were two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bathtub. The furniture in the room was very old and the repairs were outdated, not at the level of a 5-star hotel. The faucets were all scratched and worn out. The faucet upstairs didn't work properly and would switch to "tap" mode due to weak water pressure. The tropical shower didn't work at all. Everything worked fine downstairs in the children's area, both in the bathtub and shower. We really liked the mattresses and pillows, they were comfortable. The room had 4 bathrobes and slippers. The minibar was restocked daily and the housekeeping was standard. The biggest downside to the room was the noise from the neighboring motel's nightly revelry (if I may use the term "hotel" for it). Drunken karaoke screams and brain-thumping music blared all around, which, you must agree, was not a pleasant experience. The closed balcony didn't help. It became quieter in the final days, maybe because people complained. Another thing we didn't like was how dark the rooms were! There was a catastrophic lack of light! One spotlight for the whole floor and two bedside lamps, that's economical, but very uncomfortable! The restaurant food was mostly delicious. They had several types of fish, such as salmon, perch, sea bass, and dorado (grilled, battered, and there was also a boiled or stewed diet option). They also served beef, lamb, chicken, quails, squid, mussels, shrimp, and crabs, which were only available once. You should note that the main dishes were behind glass. It wasn't very convenient, to be honest, but at least it was more hygienic. However, some people, like the "taiga" guy, would still use their hands to pick strawberries when there was a spoon right beside it, and even take meat with their hands! The coffee from the coffee machine was good. The juices were packaged, and there was a sufficient variety of fruits, although they weren't always ripe and sweet. There was a Snack restaurant on the premises where you could have fast food, spaghetti, and salads, if you liked that kind of food. There was also a cafe and a pastry shop. But, in my opinion, the desserts weren't very good. The ice cream was tasty, both in scoops and packaged (Magnat brand). There were several refrigerators on the premises with drinks. In the bars, you scan the barcode and open a link with a list of alcoholic beverages that are free or for an additional charge. There was a sufficient selection of cocktails, and tips helped make them taste better. The beach was large and had plenty of sunbeds. The entrance to the water had medium-sized pebbles, which was uncomfortable for the feet, but not critical. The sea was calm but cold because it rained throughout our stay and it wasn't hot. The bartenders and hotel staff were all friendly and spoke multiple languages. The animation team was hardly noticeable and not intrusive. The same cannot be said about the vendors who walked around the beach and hotel all day trying to sell their services. Some of them were tactless and even overly interested in the female guests. I was sure that a hotel of this level shouldn't have such things. As for the children's activities, our children are grown up, but it seemed like there were good facilities for little ones and older children: a separate buffet, a playroom, an excellent playground, and a children's pool. The animators kept the children entertained throughout the day. We liked the water park. It was a great addition for both children and adults. We didn't notice anyone who was sick, sneezing, or had a stomach virus. In conclusion, the hotel had friendly staff, beautiful views, and a calm sea. It is suitable for families with children. However, they need to update the plumbing, furniture, and room renovations. They should also limit the intrusive presence of service vendors on the hotel premises.

Good, family hotel. We stayed from 26/5, arrived in Turkey in the morning, about 4 minutes drive from the airport, checked in earlier than expected, thanks to the hotel. Hotel: I really liked the hotel, the floors and corridors are clear, you won't get lost, there are several buildings, everything is clean and pleasant. Territory: The territory is large, there is room for walking, lots of greenery, a lot of pine trees, and there are palm trees, there is a water park, but we didn't go because we were unlucky with the weather, Turkey greeted us with rain and even a hurricane, but we didn't feel it, the location of the hotel is very convenient, the mountain protects it from bad weather. Beach: The beach is clean, with sunbeds under a roof, the entrance is pebbly, bring your goggles, there is a pier and a metal entrance to the water, mainly used by the guests. Animation: The animation is not intrusive, the girls and boys are very nice and polite, but sometimes there were no performances due to the rain, the evening shows were moved to the lobby. Restaurant: The food is good, there is enough meat and fish, the grill is very good, that's what we mostly had, yes, compared to other five-star hotels, there is not such abundance (one and the same meat but with different sauces), here you will have grilled meat and a choice of sauces, as well as fish, there are also ready-made dishes with meat of course, everyone will find something they like, and believe me, you won't be hungry, there are plenty of fruits, plenty of vegetables, both in salads and sliced, there are snack bars and gözleme. Bars: The bars are a separate story, because they have 3 bottled beers, no, 4 types and also draft, with beer there are nuts, chips, and nachos, very tasty. All the alcohol is from bottles, no headaches)) Staff: I really liked the service, everyone does everything with a smile, even at my request, if they had warm beer, they were surprised at first, but then they started leaving beer for me at the bar, without a fridge. There is a good hookah in the hotel, for lovers, there is a life hack, bring your own tobacco, the hookah master can buy it for you. (Masthev, Spectrum, Element, Brusko, etc.) Our tobacco is simply better, and they don't have it in Turkey. What can I say? Everything was great, if not for the weather!!!! The weather was delayed for them, plus the mountains, the climate is different in the mountains, we want to come back and see how the weather will be in the summer or autumn)

I will try to be concise: I don't understand who can recommend this hotel, especially for families with children... Apparently, they haven't stayed in decent hotels before... I stayed there for a couple of days and urgently moved to another one to save my vacation... The only positive thing was the mountain view. That's it! No decent food, no service, no infrastructure... crowded with people, all sun loungers taken, only one heated pool... Anapa... I don't even want to remember... We went to Nirvana Mediterranean... Insane contrast: perfect service, food, nature... hardly any people... prices are only slightly higher than in Akka... In short, for normal people who value the price/quality ratio, there's nothing to do in Akka! I gave it a three with reservations, so as not to insult the hotel... but that's a stretch...

Good day, we went with the family and were unsure about the weather, whether it would be hot enough for swimming. In case of this, there is a nice indoor pool here. Outside, there is one adult pool with heating, and it is operational, which is great. There is also a large hotel area where you can take walks. Additionally, there is a nice park just a five-minute walk from the hotel. The entire surrounding area is very peaceful for those who enjoy walking, like us. For children aged 7-8, there is excellent entertainment, and they spend the whole day there. The territory has a great water park, and the beach area is well-maintained. The food is excellent, and the children have their own separate restaurant. The staff is always polite and smiling, and they quickly resolve any issues at the reception. The rooms are cleaned every day. We arrived without any dollars, but it is very convenient that you can easily exchange rubles for lira with the guide. There are also evening entertainment options for adults, as well as a shisha lounge outside. Additionally, there are photographers on the territory, and I want to mention photographer Ramil. Our family felt very comfortable during the photoshoot with him, and the pictures turned out bright and amazing. I highly recommend having a photoshoot with him! I forgot to mention that there is a nice hammam and sauna in the spa, and surprisingly, there is a decent fitness gym here. Usually, we come across hotel gyms that are not that great, but here it's awesome. The view here is very beautiful, the air is amazing, and you can hear birds singing!

I want to leave a review about the work of a massage therapist at the hotel's SPA salon. I ended up with a man named Ferhat. At the reception, they immediately explained to me that he is a very good massage therapist with a medical education. Originally, I had planned to have a relaxing massage, but during our conversation, Ferhat suggested doing a therapeutic massage, identifying my muscle problem. He explained the whole process of what he does, why and what it will ultimately achieve. He gave recommendations on finding a specialist, how to choose a massage therapist in the future, and what to focus on in terms of contraindications. I am very grateful for his work, he did everything very professionally, responsibly, and for the result that I felt/saw and received in such a short period of time (4 sessions). It is difficult to find such a massage therapist in Moscow, let alone to encounter one during a vacation. I was very lucky. I am ready to return to this hotel just to go through the full course again ㉍

Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude to the hotel staff and administration - everyone who makes our stay comfortable and unforgettable. Thank you! You're doing a great job, keep it up! So, currently we are staying at this hotel - me and my 16-year-old son. We have been to Turkey 4 times, and I can say that this hotel is the best in its price category, the best hotel we have ever been to. Huge, well-planned territory, large heated pools, a water park that is also heated, a children's water park with heating, a kids' club. The beach is a 3-minute walk from the room, it is big and well-equipped. Delicious and diverse food - there is everything. And everything is very tasty. Freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast. The waiters are great, they fly around the dining hall, dirty plates disappear at lightning speed! There are refrigerators with drinks in glass bottles on the hotel grounds! Cola, Sprite, Fanta, water, cold tea. The rooms have a free mini bar that is replenished daily. Cozy rooms, cleaned every day, excellent housekeeping, they provide shampoos, gels, hair conditioners, and soap. Snow-white bed linen and towels. Bathrobes, slippers, a kettle in the room. There are even needles and threads of different colors, a sponge, and a shoe spoon. The in-room safe is free. Fast and free Wi-Fi, which is available everywhere, even on the beach! It works flawlessly without interruptions! Snack bar, Ghezlime house, confectionery bars, you will definitely not stay hungry! Yoga, darts, bocce, water aerobics, tennis, football, volleyball. Any questions are resolved within minutes by phone at 6666 or in the hotel chat. I didn't see any downsides, we are very happy with our vacation and hope to come back to this hotel again. Our vacation was great, although the weather was a bit disappointing, but we knew that the weather in spring is still unstable. We swam in the sea, we swam in the pools, so everything is good, we are satisfied. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I'll be happy to answer.

The first impression upon entering is that the hotel is very old, but that's not exactly news. The lobby is very uncomfortable, with worn-out tables and very old furniture, and the main restaurant is also unattractive. But after trying the breakfast and having the first glass of Prosecco, you overlook these external factors. The weather was not great - around 16-17 degrees Celsius, with hardly any sun. The food is excellent, although the restaurant serves food behind glass (due to COVID remnants), and they clearly struggle to keep up with service during dinners. It's also difficult to find a table if you don't arrive at the opening time. There is even a separate restaurant for children, with jarred food available, and they also serve chicken soup. For lunch and dinner, they always grill meat and fish outside, which they serve in the restaurant. There is also a snack bar outside, where they serve food from a menu, and it's all very delicious. As for drinks, there is a wide selection, including bottled beer, Aperol, Margarita, Prosecco, Mojito, gin and tonic, and more. There is always a line at the bar and café, which is frustrating. Can't they add a few more people to serve? The children's concept is excellent. They provide bathrobes and, as mentioned before, there is a separate restaurant for them with jarred food. There is a mini club with animators, where you can leave children aged 4 and above. It operates from 1-12:30 PM and 2-5:30 PM, and they promise to have it open all day during summer. They also offer face painting and aquagrim for children. Of course, there are trampolines, climbing structures, and a dry pool. Outside, there is also a small playground with a sandbox. The cherry on top, and a huge plus for the hotel, are the large heated pools. The kids' pool is warm, around 35 degrees, with a small slide, while the octopus pool is around 32 degrees. The big adult pool is around 32 degrees as well, and the adult water park is around 28 degrees. The indoor pools are also warm, around 28 degrees. At 2:30 PM, mini disco starts, and in April, it takes place in the hotel lobby and lasts for half an hour. Then, karaoke starts at 9:30 PM, and at 11 PM, everyone moves to the nightclub on the ground floor. The karaoke repertoire is typical, while the music in the club is good, including European and Russian contemporary music. The lobby also has waiters serving guests. The hotel has a large, green, and beautiful territory, but there is some untidiness due to the hotel's age. We were given a standard room, which comfortably accommodated 2 adults and 2 children. The room was spacious, the plumbing was functional, and the bedding was sparkling white. The cleaning service was of high quality. Starting from 4 PM, you can borrow an iron for 3 minutes. The clientele is very diverse, with many elderly couples and teenagers, but the majority are families with children. It's understandable, as the hotel is family-friendly. I also want to note the excellent shisha (hookah) at the hotel, with a wide selection of quality tobacco. The attentive hookah expert frequently changes the coals.

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

We rested from April 7th to 16th. We arrived early in the morning, but by 1 o'clock we were already checked into our rooms with a partial sea view. The rooms have everything you need, any questions are solved over the phone in a matter of minutes. The resort has a huge, beautiful, well-maintained area. There is a long illuminated promenade. There is a heated pool (until May 31st), and a small but worthy water park with 7 slides (also heated). Unfortunately, we were not very lucky with the weather, but we had a great time in the cozy spa hotel. The restaurant is beyond praise. The meat, fish, vegetables, and fruits are all very delicious and fresh. We always chose a table outside, so a huge thanks to the waiters Murat for his fast and quality service, your glasses will never be empty with him; Yasen and Georgyan for their attentiveness and smiles. There are many bars in the hotel to suit every taste. Good, quality bottled alcohol. We preferred the beach bar, it was calm, cozy, and atmospheric. I would like to mention the bartender Alper, he makes delicious cocktails and is always smiling and sociable. As for the entertainment, honestly, I didn't notice it much. There were karaoke nights, but it was stuffy and crowded in the lobby, so we preferred to sit in the seaside bar. We missed live music. I recommend this hotel and will gladly come back again.

We stayed at the hotel from March 18th to March 27th, 223, with 2 adults and 1 child (9 years old). Initially, the hotel was only half full, but after 2 days, Iranians arrived and, judging by the occupied tables at dinner, the hotel became 99% full. We were lucky with the weather, there were only 2 nights with rain. We liked the hotel for its impeccable service, attentive bartenders, alert waiters, a wonderful coffee shop with a pastry section, a clean area, well-heated adult and children's pools, and an excellent hammam. The beach entry is not yet equipped, but that didn't stop us from swimming in the sea every morning, even though we are not polar bears. The food was not very diverse according to the winter concept, but every day there was meat and fish, including grilled options. We particularly enjoyed yogurt cream cheese for breakfast, excellent grilled salmon, tasty cakes, and decent fruits (there was a shortage of strawberries, so we bought them ourselves). The children's restaurant was nice. You can indulge in ice cream practically all day long (from 11 am until the evening). I recommend this hotel to families with children.

We were there from March 19th to 26th. We were checked in immediately upon arrival at 11. The room was ordinary, not new. There is no hair conditioner in the bathroom, so bring your own if needed. There is a kettle. Tea and coffee were never replenished, although water and soda were brought to the room every day. We liked the territory, it is similar to Rixos Sangate in some ways. Modern music played at the cold swimming pool (which we liked). We went to Canyon Guinuk from the hotel. The entrance fee was 2 dollars, euros. It was okay. The leather and fur store offers a free trip to Kemer. Agree to it. We were driven in a Mercedes both ways. The salespeople in the hotel from the store were very friendly. The outdoor swimming pool was warm and the water on the slides was warm too. The food at the hotel was average. I was shocked at first, but then I got used to it. There were no queues until the Iranians arrived, then the restaurant was overcrowded and sometimes there wasn't enough food. It was the same food every day. I didn't take the salad, it was an incomprehensible mixture. Only fresh vegetables were good. Almost all the food was served behind glass. The fruit was very small and there was no choice - no kiwis, strawberries, or tangerines. There was no red fish, shrimp, or mussels. There were only two coffee machines for the entire restaurant. They said there would be imported drinks with the start of the summer concept. I didn't understand if there would be any access to the sea at the beach. There were no walkways to the sea or umbrellas (although the sun was scorching). It seems like people paid for comfort, but there is none at the beach. It is rocky and difficult to walk without shoes. Some people were already swimming. Overall, the trip was okay, but the hotel was overly advertised. It is just an average 5-star hotel.

Hello. We stayed at the hotel from 1.3.23 to 1.3.23 and we liked everything very much. The territory is large and well-kept, despite it being off-season, we were lucky with the weather. It was 27-29 degrees Celsius during the day and 11-15 degrees Celsius in the morning, night, and evening. The heated pool replaced the sea for us, and many people swam in it! The rooms were clean and cleaned daily. The minibar was replenished every day, although there was no alcohol, but it wasn't a downside. Any question at the reception was resolved instantly and completely free of charge. The restaurant had a wide variety of food, all fresh and tasty. The drinks were also of good quality. The bar near the pool had excellent hot mulled wine. There was also a sweet house and a coffee shop, and everything was delicious. In the evening, there were programs in the lobby with good and non-intrusive animation. There was a disco as well. I also had a photo shoot and was very satisfied (photographer David). The surroundings were green and beautiful with mountains. The staff's attitude was wonderful. Overall, I was delighted with the vacation and didn't find any negatives. I would gladly return to this hotel. Thank you so much for such a fantastic vacation!

I should note right away that I fully understand the difference between the winter and summer concepts)). We returned home and didn't get the wow effect. I wanted to stay in this hotel for several years, with its pine trees, mountains, and sea, but the territory didn't impress me, maybe because there's something to compare it to. For reference: people who stayed with us after Akka Alinda - they were simply delighted with the hotel, while we, after Ic hotels green palace and Grand Yazici Club Turban Termal, think that it could have been better for the money)). The hotel itself is old and not cozy inside, the rooms are ordinary. The buffet line is very small, I believe, for this hotel, but everything is very tasty, really! The alcohol selection in winter is minimal (whiskey, beer, wine, champagne), no quality issues, the waiters are lovely, especially Ramsey, his cocktails are the most delicious! The spa is excellent, the massage is great, there's a basic indoor swimming pool and a Jacuzzi - my eyes almost popped out from the smell of chlorine. They heated the large pool, children's pool, and water park outside this year. What else disappointed us (these are just small things, but we noted them for ourselves 😊) is that upon arrival, there was no welcome, no champagne. Upon departure, they promised to congratulate me on my birthday (a bottle of wine and fruits) - they didn't. My husband went to inquire, and they said something like "you're leaving today, so it's not allowed," to the question "but we clarified and you promised," they suddenly stopped understanding Russian). We had a late flight home, and, of course, we spent half a day at the pool, even though there were plenty of available rooms. Overall, it was just okay, we won't return). We booked two rooms for 3 adults for 4 nights (5 full days), and it wasn't worth the 1,000 rubles.

In my previous review, I described our visit to Akka Antedon in January 222. This year, we weren't able to go as a whole family, only my husband had vacation time. And now, maybe someone will find the following information interesting. The hotel doesn't accommodate single men. I was able to book a tour for my husband only through Ane because they made a request to the hotel. Akka Antedon in 223 didn't disappoint. As a regular guest of the hotel, my husband was checked in around 11 o'clock, given a complimentary dinner at the restaurant, and delighted with a bottle of wine. The weather this year was more cloudy and rainy, but still warm. My husband rode a bike in the canyon, reached Kemer, and went to Antalya a few times. I described how to organize this in my previous review. The service at the hotel remained top-notch, my husband loved it, and all his questions were quickly resolved. By the way, the hotel has an app where you can address any issues that arise without even going to the reception. The Wi-Fi is excellent throughout the hotel grounds, with enough capacity even for video calls. Overall, I can recommend the hotel for a peaceful family vacation, families with children, and those who enjoy organizing their leisure time independently. There is no hustle and bustle here, and for those for whom it is essential, Akka Antedon is a wonderful choice. My daughter and I also dream of coming back here. I am writing this review after a horrible tragedy that claimed the lives of thousands of people. Our family mourns alongside the Turkish people. The heart breaks from the amount of pain and suffering that has befallen this almost already beloved country. I express condolences to all those affected by this monstrous earthquake and pray for the wounds to heal quickly and for peace to return to the affected areas.

We stayed at this hotel for the second time and it was the first time that we stayed at the same hotel twice. We were absolutely satisfied with everything! The level of service, food, and accommodations (we changed rooms upon our request) was excellent. I was surprised when I read reviews stating that the food was average; in reality, it was outstanding. The variety and taste were exceptional. We really liked that the entertainment was moderate and there weren't crowds of children with animators running around. The music was never loud, only played locally by the pool and bars. However, there were evening shows and discos for those who wanted them. The sea was beautiful, clean, and warm. We were able to swim with masks. The coffee throughout the hotel was very delicious. Thank you to all the hotel staff for their hard work and friendliness! I wish the hotel prosperity and to continue maintaining such a high level in everything!

We had a vacation from September 19th to October 3rd at the Akka Antedon hotel as a couple. The first thing to mention is the hotel staff and their attentive, caring attitude towards us, the guests. The bartenders, receptionists, and restaurant staff - everyone was excellent! Special thanks to the bartenders at the lobby bar, especially Ayla, for the beautiful and delicious cocktails. The beach bar is also a pleasant place. The food options were great - various grilled fish, beef, lamb, and turkey. The cleanliness of the hotel grounds was exceptional, and the common areas were always tidy. The sea was warm and gentle. We didn't swim from the shore, but always relaxed on the pier. Initially, we were given a room with a view of the mountains and the road, but then they kindly changed it to a room with a view of the lobby terrace, trees, and partially the pool, as per our request. Overall, the hotel is located in a way that offers minimal direct sea views (for those who find it important). We had to choose between Alva in Kemer (where we have been before) and Antedon. We do not regret choosing Antedon. After the renovation of the rooms, the hotel will be impeccable (except for the price, of course). We would love to come back!

Last year, while staying at the AKKA ALINA 5* hotel in Kirish, we decided that we would definitely return to the AKKA chain next year. And now we are currently staying at the AKKA ANTEON 5* hotel in the village of Beldibi. The hotel is fantastic! We arrived at the hotel at 1:30 in the morning and were immediately taken to have breakfast. By 11 in the morning, the receptionists Adem, Baris, and Ayper offered to show us our room. We were given room 128 on a floor with a splendid view of the Taurus Mountains and a partial view of the sea. The room completely satisfied us and the beach was within walking distance. Since this is our second time staying at an AKKA hotel, in the evening, when we returned from the beach, they brought fruits and a bottle of wine to our room. We were very pleased! Additionally, they offered us the opportunity to dine for free at one of the four à la carte restaurants of our choice. The toiletries such as gels, shampoos, and soaps are replenished daily. The food at the hotel is very delicious and there is a lot of it. For the first time in 15 years of vacationing in Turkey at the end of August, we had cherries. All the fruits were ripe, sweet, and the nectarines and peaches were soft. Fruits are available throughout the day in the hotel. There is a variety of cheese, salmon for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Meat, fish, and seafood are always available in large quantities and variety. There is a lot of ice cream, the coffee shop is excellent, and the tea selection is also great. The refrigerators are constantly stocked with water, various fizzy drinks, and ayran. The hotel offers a splendid view of the Taurus Mountains, and the water in the sea is clean, especially near the shore. The bottom is not visible near the buoys. The nature in Beldibi is incredible! I would like to mention the hotel staff. They are all efficient and quickly perform their duties, whether it is cleaning the tables in the restaurants or the bartenders making delicious cocktails. The staff always work with a smile on their faces. You can feel that they are happy to have you at this hotel! I really enjoy the spa! In the evenings, we go to the hammam and the jacuzzi. The hammam is hot, just as it should be, and the jacuzzi has cool water. You can also take a shower there and they provide towels and shower gel. I did not note any downsides for myself. It would be great if there was music playing on the pier.

My spouse and I were together at the border of February and March. We were very lucky with the weather. The sea is crystal clear! The entrance is rocky, but the pathways are cleared. It's a winter concept! The animation was excellent! All the games and sports were available! The beach is large and clean. The pool is big and heated. There is also a separate warm pool with slides and an indoor pool. There are 2 saunas, a hammam, and a steam room. The bars are operating well. The mulled wine is amazing! The coffee shop has a fantastic girl! She sings and smiles - it creates a festive atmosphere! The restaurant is a real restaurant. The waiters are attentive and discreetly clean up. The restaurant service is top-notch. There were enough people in the hotel, including many children. Everything was great, the kids behaved wonderfully and ate without any fuss. The kids' table was large and had plenty of seating. There is a huge selection for adults, even for picky eaters. Everything is delicious and of high quality. The territory is well maintained. While we were there, they were renovating the summer pool, trimming the pines, so I think it will be even more beautiful in the summer. I highly recommend the hotel!
