10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"the cennnt is a lovely hotel reasonable priced, it is right on the beach, the food is great with free wine served with dinner, the only downside is that there are no lifts. (4 floors). the resort has many attractions and is very clean. the staff at the hotel are very helpful, but you do have to make the most of the evening entertainment. overall this was a very enjoyable inexpensive holiday i would gladly recommend"

Loved The Cennet
"Just returned from a week at the Cennet and can only agree with all the previous comments i.e what a brilliant hotel and resort.Cannot fault it and one of the best holidays I have had.Clean Hotel,friendly staff and nice food.Evening entertainment a bit amateurish but good.Mainly German clientelle but was not a problem at all.Nice touches too with local ducks in attendance! Point to note that because of the heavy German presence,all the shops and restaurants deal with Euros as the first currency so don"t bother with Turkish Lire.Wish the Tour operator had made that known when booking."

loved the beach
"Excellent 3 star hotel Better than some 4 stars we have stayed in. Lovely private beach patrolled by hotel staff all day. Food ok ,rooms average( to be refurbished this winter). everywhere very clean and tidy. Free drinkable wine,free safety deposit boxes, free beds on beach(80p if you want a foam matress, try getting that for 80p in Spain) Only minus is lack of aircon at night but this seems to be a Turkish problem. I think the test is would you return and the answer is yes we enjoyed this hotel."

"Lovely hotel. Very clean. Good food. Excellent and attentive staff. Cennet is in an excellent position and only a short walk along the beach into Side old town. Fabulous private sandy beach - free sunbeds and umbrellas but you have to pay 2 YTL for a mattress. Only criticism is that the airt conditioning is centrally controlled and available for limited periods. Pool is relatively small but beds are limited around the pool to prevent overcrowding. Very few english - mainly german, french and dutch visitors."

"we stayed at the Cennet for 2 weeks all inclusive and had a marvellous time. The staff were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. Air conditioning left a little to be desired, but hotel itself was excellent. Everything in the grounds and the hotel was spotless Very good location right on beach. The all inclusive was great value, breakfast was buffet and plenty of options snacks were plentiful and well presented, evening meal was waiter service with a few strange options but there was still plenty of other food in the buffet. Would I stay again, most certainly, will be back for 2 weeks in September"

Lovely hotel but the all icl not up to much
"This was lovely place to stay in. Couldnt fault the hotel. Georgeous, set in lovely gardens which are kept everyday. Hotel spotless. Private beach, 1 min from hotel bar. Friendly staff although the Germans took preference when it came to service. LOTS OF GERMANS. The thing that disappointed us was the all inclusive package. Lots of things were extra. e.g. orange juice, cappacino, traditionallly cooked kebabs and specials of the day."

"This pension is a little rough around the edges, and the owner, Amet who is shown prominently in the pensions website, was nowhere to be seen when my wife and I were there. The family staff who were their were not overly friendly. It is an okay place for budget accomodation but next time if we visit Kusadasi we will definitely try another hotel or pension.

"My wife and I stayed in the Cennet in June 2004 for 3 nights all inclusive. We were there as guests of a local building firm as we were buying property at the time. We found the Hotel was virtually all German, even the waiters spoke German before English. We could not fault the service and quality of food and amenities. Certainly a beautiful hotel, right on the beach. It was just hard trying to find a friendly english speaking person to talk to."

Cennet is Great!
"Got a late booking for this Hotel, --we've been to turkey a few times, but not to this area, so were'nt sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised, as this was a lovely place to stay--exceptionally clean--beautiful grounds--(which have been constructed around an orchard) lovely pool area, and a good private beach. The staff were absolutely fantastic, so pleasant and full of fun. We were All Inclusive, and were given the strongest alcohol we've ever had on this type of board basis, so--quite a few merry nights were had by all! Would definitely return to this hotel."

"I visited the cennet hotel in july 2003, it was the first time i had visited Turkey and due to my experiences returned to another turkish destination this year. The hotel is very clean, modern and well presented. The hotel has its own private beach, which is second to none.some shops and a few bars are in close proximity, however a larger distance needs to be travelled in order to reach a wider variety of entertainment.Compared to the hotel i visited this year the staff weren't overly friendly.But overall i enjoyed my stay at the cennet."
