Well worth a visit
"Great hotel. Food very good and on par with other quality Turkish hotels. Entertainment team very good including kids club. Eveneing entertainment is the best we have had after 5 years in Turkey. The evening entertainment is geared around adults but kids are catered for. Not many English but the staff love the English. The Germans were ok but Russians as bad as usual. Lots of beds, but the beach beds go first as very peacful down there. The cinema is hidden, but is next to hair salon on the ground floor. 2 a la carte restaurants free ( once a week, Japanese and fish). Japanese is suchi, so only go if you like it. The fish restaurant is very good. The a la carte restaurants that you pay for the Chinese is well worth the 9 euros each. Not good reports about Italian. DO NOT BUY THE SPECIAL WINES IN THESE RESTAURANTS AS VERY VERY EXPENSIVE. Room big enough for the 4 of use, but smallest room we have ever had."

Good, but not worth the price!
"Hello everybody! The hotel was okay,but not worth the price.
Definitely most of the employees were helpfull and nice,but
those in the reception was certainly disgusting.(not all of them).
If you'll make a good research i have no doubt you find better
hotel in a lower price!!!!!!
the weather was fantastic! the food is o.k. all the facilities are good,but not everything that written in the hotel site is truth!
for example: the bowling costs money,there is no Football field at all !!! and there is more...so again,make a good research!!
Most of the guests were Russains and Germans..really nice people!!
All the motorized water-sport cost money , but don't be afraid to to bargain ( argue) with them about the price!
Apart from which my vication was really great!"

Pretty nice place
"Great pool & beach. The food and drinks were ok- we went to the Japanese and Italian restaurants and both were mediocre, but the Turkish night at the main buffet was great. The views of the mountains and ocean are unbelievable. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly for the most part. We both got great massages there too (very reasonably priced!) My boyfriend and I were told on several occasions that we were the only Americans they had ever seen there. The only problem we ran into was the pushiness of some of the people there from Russia to both the staff and other guests."

Best Hotel Ä±n Kemer!
"We were advÄ±sed by the medhotels.com rep that the Kemer Resort Hotel Ä±s the best hotel Ä±n Kemer and Kemer Ä±s consÄ±dered the best resort Ä±n Turkey. Booked the hotel and flÄ±ghts separately through travel republÄ±c and barhead travel totallÄ±ng just over 400 pounds each for a week all Ä±nclusÄ±ve Ä±n thÄ±s top 5 star hotel.
The Kemer Resort Hotel Ä±s amazÄ±ng. Excellent facÄ±lÄ±tÄ±es, great rooms, helpfull staff and great food. The hotel has fÄ±ve a la carte restaurants Ä±ncluded Ä±n the all Ä±nclusÄ±ve package whÄ±ch we recommend for a great meal away from the maÄ±n restaurant.
The attentÄ±on to detaÄ±l and lÄ±ttle extras makes thÄ±s hotel a defÄ±nate 5 star. All areas are Ä±mmaculate and constantly cleaned, great well kept gardens and pool area. The staff work really hard to maÄ±ntaÄ±n such a hÄ±gh standard and are allways approachable and polÄ±te. MÄ±nÄ± bar Ä±s also restocked each day as part of the all Ä±nclusÄ±ve package. TurkÄ±sh DelÄ±ght and bucks fÄ±zz are served daÄ±ly before dÄ±nner !!
The hotel Ä±s located approx 10 mÄ±n walk from the centre of Kemer, wÄ±th around 900 small leather, jewllery and clothes shops. The prÄ±vate sand shÄ±ngle beach and jetty are located adjacent to the gardens and snack bar area.,
If you are comÄ±ng to Turkey, then we belÄ±ve thÄ±s Ä±s the hotel you should be lookÄ±ng to stay Ä±n ! Excellent all round !
ps. Ä±f you do come, make sure you have a bottle of RÄ±bena and Walkers cheese and onÄ±on crÄ±sps for StephanÄ±e the med hotels rep."

Simply The Best!
"I've just returned from the Kemer Resort Hotel and I must say I had a hell of a good time! The pools are great, the staff are more than helpful and last but not least, the food is divine.
You can spend a really enjoyable holiday there, forget all your worries and problems.
Since I'm extremely picky (to put it mildly...) you can imagine, this hotel is really worth visiting.
Unfortunately, as some people have said before me, there are LOADS of Russians in Kemer. Highly impolite people. But I have to say, Russians are everywhere in Turkey and in the world so sonner or later you'll meet them. :)
The only flaw I've found about Kemer Resort: when you arrive at the hotel you receive a bulletin about the times of meals. It's not enough for the hotel has so much to offer and you have to work out for yourself where things are.
But apart from this, I can strongly recommend this place, you won't regret your decision.
Have fun, Eszter"

"We were on a family holiday here. The food was superb! (Compared to other top class all inclusive hotels in Turkey),The stuff was very friendlly and were willing to help at any time.
The hotel has a great Mini Club stuff (2006).
It has it's own great location of a private beach, and great outdoor pools.
Also in the hotel - A great turkish Hamam, a gym, billiard, bowlling indoor pool, and some shops."

"The Kemer Resort was a fantastic hotel definitely a 5 star property. I would stay there again. The room was better than expected with plenty of space. The hotel was extremely clean and the ladies who cleaned our room cannot be faulted. All the staff were very polite and helpful, most could speak good english, however due to the fact that we travelled in November the guests were mainly German and Turkish. The pools around the hotel looked lovely however we could not use them as it was too cold, there was an indoor pool which was empty most of the time. We felt that the evening entertainment could have been better but I think during summer months the entertainment programme for the hotel would be better. The food in the hotel was top notch but please note that we cannot comment on the al a carte restaurants as we never tried them. This hotel would be best suited to adults as there are limited things for children to occupy them."

"Hotel is very clean, service is top notch. As a Canadian travelling to Turkey, we felt safe, only problem is that the Turks relate to everyone as "Amerikans". So, some had some biases. Some thought, were happy to hear that a Cdn was actually there! So, we felt welcome. The rooms were very nice, yes, as for a room facing the pool. We found alot of Scandanavians, Germans, Danish, English, all great. The Russians seemed to take over, they were not nice to the staff, and were very demanding. It was an eye opener to say the least, to see how progressive they are, or modern, but have forgotton how to be good guests. Some just need to be nicer, and remember that the Turks deserve some respect. Regardless, the hotel was close to everything, Shopping is great, the best "fakes" in the world. Food excellent, enjoy!"

Excellent hotel don't even think about staying anywhere else
"Before I start I would like to say I am bit of a hotel snob generally staying in starwood branded hotels, ie Sheraton, and this hotel lived upto my fussy standards. My friend and I took a chance and booked here after being unable to find any reviews.
This all inclusive hotel has 6 bars including 2 outside bars, 2 inside bars and a disco and jazz bar although not very jazzy but more chilled than the disco.
There are 6 restaurants 5 of which are a-la-carte, Chinese (gorgeous about 10 courses) Italian (very nice) Turkish (very meaty) also a Sushi and a Fish restaurant of which I cant comment on as I didn't eat in them. The buffet restaurant was excellent with alfresco dinning in the evening. There is also a snack bar and a traditional turkish hut serving turkish breads throughout the day. The wine in the a-la carte restaurants is so much nicer than the bars try to book your table for 7pm as you may be a bit rushed if booked for 8pm.
The pool is huge and divided up into 5 sections kids/entertainment area, wave pool, slide pool, indoor pool and a quieter mainly adults area. Watersports on the beach. There is a jetty and deck area above the sea with sunbeds first up best dressed there though! The hotel was full when I was there but I never had a problem finding a sunbed even after lunch.
There are sauna's a steam room and a turkish bath all free. The spa and the ten pin bowling you have to pay for.
There is non stop entertainment throughout the day and into the evening which is excellent if thets your thing.
This is a 5 star hotel and facilitys with maybe 4 star rooms. The best views are overlooking the pool or to the left of the hotel and try not to get a room by a lift DING DING DING you'll know what I mean.
Finally Euros is suprisingly the most used currency and the best to take and the majority of the guest are Russian and German who always know the best hotels.
The staff were so lovely and friendly which added to our enjoyable stay."
