So we were in 2011 in Amara- beach resort, and were very satisfied with all. Now in 2012 we were back there and it was as bad as not yet other hotel in which we were, the food, cleanliness, guests ( 80% are russians) to the bad and unfriendly staff. It is clear why it is so bad, the hotel was on a russians sold. So now it is enough, we now look forward to another task, as even to this stupid Amara- beach to think. Greetings from the beautiful Koblenz …  read hotel review

Great smaller clean family friendly hotel
  • Recommended hotel

This was our fourth year at a family all inclusive in Turkey plus one year in Greece. Alva Donna was the best hotel in my opinion. It is smaller than the other hotels we visited, but the quality and cleanliness were excellent. A very good buffet and no long lines for any wait. The clients of the hotel were also a bit higher class than other resorts we visited, which resulted in a much more pleasant experience. As far as criticisms - (i) the balcony was ridiculously small (not sure why we ordered a sea view room with a balcony ... that could fit two chairs and a table, but only together, leaving no room for a person to sit); and (ii) kids club seemed not to exist - we were told where it was and were even told of certain activities, but we never saw the kids club in action (a daily schedule of kids club activities would be helpful). The reception also had some difficulty understanding a request to pass on a key, but was very helpful in working things out, as well as they were helpful in organizing a trip to Side. Overall, the quality and the pluses far outweighed the minör criticisms and this hotel will definitely be on the list of places to which we will return. read hotel review
