Lovely hotel, Everywhere new and modern. Friendley staff and lots to do. Ideal for all age groups! Loads of sunbeds to choose from in the day, Animation team who entertain during the day (water polo, pool games, volleyball) in the evening they often put a show on or games where they interact with audiences. and have a disco in the hotel for teenagers and adults. twice a week they take a group to kusidassi to a club where you pay for return travel club enterance and a free drink.

I stayed at the Fantasia, which I have to say was a bit dearer than other hotels, but the room was lovely, clean and of a good size. Almost all rooms have a sea view which is nice. The food was lovely and I was there for 2 weeks and I have to say did not get bored with the choice at all, the all inclusive was a good option as the Fantasia is approx 3 miles from the town, but there are bars and restuarants within walking distance on Long Beach. ladies beach is definitely work a visit as well. Pool area of the hotel is lovely with plenty of loungers and very close to its own private beach.

I stayed here last summer, late review i suppose but I thought it was still worth sharing my experience. The hotel overall was very well kept, and very beautiful i must say. the staff when we arrived were also extremely helpful. Arriving into the room I was shocked at the size, as it was a lot larger than i expected. The housekeeping was also excellent, we had fresh towels everyday, and the room was cleaned top to bottom. The entertainment was by far the best part of the holiday, activities were scheduled throughout the entire day, and each day would be slightly different. Although by the end of the first week you inevitably tire of doing the same activities, which i found was not a bad thing it gives you an excuse to leave the hotel and explore the area. Turkey is a beautiful place and the people are really friendly to tourists in particular.

I've been to turkey a few times now and this is the best hotel so far. I would definately consider staying here again and if your planning on travelling to Kusadasi i would definately recommend staying at the Fantasia.

We went to Fantasia Late sep, hotel was really well maintained, you would think you where walking into a palace. Our room was quite spacious but the people I went with their rooms where quite small because they had to have a double bed in and two singles, not enough room to swing a cat. Fresh towels everyday. Rooms where very clean. food was ok in the main restaurant but after the week it was boring, we used to have something to eat at 3.30 when the jacket potatoes came out, which are to die for, they are huge but very nice, they only have 2 fillings though cheese and something like potato salad but it was nice. There are a couple of other restaurants but they where closed because of end of season which was so annoying, they not the only thing that was closed, the kids club never opened at all, the entertainment of a night was not really anything so the kids where bored, they had kids songs from 9.15 till 9.40 and it was the same songs every night (agadoo, Superman, I am the music man ) you know the ones. So if you got kids dont go this time of year.

First impression was good. We arrived at around 5am Turkish time and were given a drink. One thing I found annoying was that we had to fill in some forms and were also given a welcome talk - I just wanted to go to bed! Got to the room and it was two singles - we'd asked for a double. This was no problem though, someone came up straight away and put the two beds together to make a double (we liked the location of the room so didn't want to move). The room was alright, great view of the sea from the balcony and lovely gardens. Only downside was having to pay for the mini bar in an all-inclusive.

The hotel has two pools, one is busy and noisy, the other is quiet and relaxing, depending on what you want they are both fantastic. The beach is a bit strange - it doesn't go into the sea, it's like a pier with sand on. This wasn't a problem for me as I am not a fan of the sea. It's still possible to go into the sea but you have to climb off a pier down a ladder. It's still quite shallow and has lots of little fish. There's a pier which goes out to sea and has cushion things on, nice to lie on at night.

Food is great. Pool bar does burgers and ice cream, then there's a guy who makes pizza, and in the afternoon you can get fab jacket potatoes. Probably not the best all inclusive I've been to if I'm honest, in terms of the periods of time when "proper" food is available. E.g. you couldn't get a full meal at around 4pm if you wanted one, you'd just have to snack. Drinks are good and available all day. The pool has drinks machines around it which is nice.

Spa is excellent, I totally recommend. There's loads of activities but I preferred to sunbathe, and if you wanted to just chill out you didn't get harassed.

All in all I enjoyed it!

6 start hotel. Food - excellent (you're in turkey so don't expect chick nuggets & chips). Hotel spotless, they clean constantly, not a spec of dirt anywhere. Bar staff excellent and couldn't be more helpful. Entertainment staff are great ambassadors for their country - people are so nice and friendly. Spa is a great treat and highly recommended.

Just returned from a week at the Hotel Fantasia and it was fantastic, the hotel is immaculate, the room was beautiful and the staff very helpful and friendly. We ate at the hotel during the day but ate out most evenings as we had friends staying in the centre. Will be returning next year, great hotel!

Hi just to give a rating on this Hotel it is luxurious Quality certainly lives up to it being 5 Star. We arrived around 5.30am and were welcomed and shown straight to our rooms. On awaking after a few hours sleep we went for a look around to be surprised where we had landed the hotel is gorgeous i could not fault in anyway, the staff a very friendly and speak good english....The food is plentiful and a wide range all our group of 7 (including kids from 5-14 years) ate plenty with no complaints....The beach is a bit of a let down as no actual sand to walk into water as man-made...but 4 pools made up for that....The hotel is about 10 mins from centre of kusidassi where plenty of shopping can be done.......Overall we will return to this hotel........I must mention we flew from Manchester Airport Terminal 1 worst airport ever.......avoid at all costs...expensive and terrible food take your own with you.

We have visited this hotel on 4 different occasions. We went in 2003/4/5/6 we weren't able to go in 2007 as one of our party was taken poorly. We have booked to go again this year 2008 in September for our usual 2 weeks. This is a lovely hotel but could do with a bit more evening entertainment. Having said that as there are always a few of us we make our own. We always found that the food on offer was enough for you to have a choice there was a very good variety of things. We always found the staff very nice and if we ever did have a complaint about anything it was dealt with ASP. I suppose when people complain about some of the staff I would think that they all get very little sleep and a lot of them are young so sleep is a big part of their lives. The pool area is lovely always nice and clean and always plenty of loungers not hogged every morning by the usual holiday makers. I have got to say that I don't think this is a holiday place for children say between the ages of maybe 8 & 16 as there is only the pools in the daytime it is mainly for people who want to go away for a leisurely couple of weeks with a few good books to soak up some sun lounge around and then go and get ready for your evening meal then after a trip on the Bus into Kusadasi town where you can enjoy walking around the shops and seeing the hustle and bustle of all walks of life. It is also a nice walk through the little houses going up to the little market on the main road they have some good things and hardly ever hassle you. You can have a nice walk every morning along the man made beach then up through the houses. I always think a holiday is what you make it and if you read some of the coments that have been made I would think again after all it is a foreign country with traditions and different sorts of foods etc. If you want a very active holiday Spain etc is the place to go also you can get most things English even the amount of people are English. My response is stay at home and go to Blackpool but the weather might be rubbish. No disrespect to Blackpool I have heard it is a lovely place never been myself it's too expensive. Every holiday is what you make it and if you are not happy with the standard of things don't wait till you come back home to complain do it while you are there preferably within a couple od days. Happy holidays to all.

wonderful hotel! food,staff,room,pool all great.ave been to turkey 4times and this is the best hotel yet.negatives and i guess there are always some...beach manmade and entry via ladder into the sea.location also a concern as not walking distance to any evening entertainment although dolmus bus stops across the road and is only 150 lira. pool towels available,clean and no charge.pool staff friendly as were all. indoor pool warm as a bath.massage and turkish bath a must!they are excellent! Ali,the in-house jewerally shop is fair and honest and the prices are at least the same if not better than Centrum so give him a try?shame no evening dress code for dinning room as it cheapend the evening,as music was played via a pianist and violinist.food was really good and the salads and sweets where beautiful.one point,really found the evening entertainment poor,mayb ive just seen too many ";miss hotel";shows but take some cards instead!

we would go back to this hotel tomorrow. cost us £320 for 1week A.I per person,great price,great hotel,enjoy!!

Just come back from a week's break to Fantasia Hotel. What a disapointment!!!

certainly not a five star hotel, rather a 3. Having taken our two young children we were under the impression the hotel catered for the young - oh no, the food was dreadful, certainly not for the faint hearted. The only time they served chips (absolute must for any kids) was at breakfast, which finished at 9:30 in the morning! The rest of the time it was very continental food aimed at those more adventurous when eating fish and veggie's.

The swiming pools too were a little scarey as the deepest part was over 3.25m! with no lifeguard overseeing the area at all. Our young daughter was nearly jumped on by two 15+ lads who clearly weren't paying attention.
Although there is a beach area, described as ";golden sandy Beach"; - this was dirty and completely unsuitable for any children, as the beach stopped, a concreate path began which led to the waters edge, which was disgusting, old tires, plastic cups, bit's of pottery etc - which you had to walk across to start swiming - yuk!!
To top the holday off, the marble sink in the hotel room came away from it's setting and crashed onto the floor, landing on my mother-in-law's foot, whilst she was brushing her teeth!! - it appears there were no brackets holding the sink in place only adhesive!!! - obviously distressing and very painful, the hotel reseptionist was more concerned on who was going to pay for the damage!!!!

In all not a vacation break we'd like to repeat, and certainly won't be recommending to our friends and family again. Don't get me started on the flight too and from Turkey - don't fly ONUR AIR - spend a little more, it's so worth it!!!
