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

Everything about is the Hotel perfect. I have been many Times in this Hotel and Would not like to take the chance of going to another Hotel. In case at that not meet High standart of Alva Donna. Food is the best that I had all inc. Hotels. My favourite being is the lunch at the Pool side Restaurant. Without exeption the Staff are Friendly, courteous and nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are adiquete and size but the balcony for a family room is small. read hotel review

Alva Donna Side - beach holiday
  • Recommended hotel
  • Families
  • Beach holiday
  • August 2014
The hotel in general is quite good. Rooms are standard, reasonable space in the room and bathroom. Unfortunately, not all rooms face the yard or the beach, but it could be an advantage if looking for having quite nights. The hotel is well maintained and once inside of the resort all is handy - beach, restaurants, gardens, swimming pools and all needed for a beach holiday. The hotel's location is so so, as it's at the edge of the region Side and the surrounding are not as nice as the resort is. During my stay the majority were locals with ... few Europeans (mainly from Belgium). Its not an issue unless you would like to hear a range of music, as often in the evenings they had Turkish traditional songs. read hotel review

    The reception staff disappointed very much for being quite indifferent and gave the room only at 14.20. However, the rest of the staff outweight this as they were very friendly and approachable. Those from restaurants and bars knew different languages - English, German, Russian etc. The room was cleaned daily in a good manner. I wouldn't comment much on handling complaints because my complaints were not handled properly, but I guess this is Turkish style and nothing much could be done about this. I put excellent because even with the minor problems that I had, I still received good attitude from the most of the staff.

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    The food during 7 days was very varied. Very few dishes were repeated and all were very tasty, including, starters, main courses, desserts, fruits. A la carte in the fish restaurant was very tasty as well. Overall cleanliness was outstanding in the area where we were eating.

    The rooms were alright, nothing fancy - TV , air conditioning, beds.

  • Sport & Leisure
    6.0

    This was my favourite out of all my experience in this hotel. To start with - in the mornings there were water gymnastics led by Nur or Giorgi (members of the animation team) who led very well and entertaining. Later there were pool games led by the rest of the animation team - the games were always different and very very entertaining - a lot of fun for all the ages (including watching). The was valleyball led by Giorgi and shooting, dart and many more games led by other members of the animation team. Also for kids there was a mini club where kids were entertained all day by Aleksandra, Marina and another guy. I was very impressed by the energy of the animation team, especially Giorgi, Aleksandra, Marina and Nur, and the way they managed to entertain the guests. I'm very thankful for their work and would definetly recommend them.

  • Location

    The location was not impressive as outside the resort nothing is appealing. But, its worth staying in the resort or on the beach as there are many things do to or just simply relax by the pool, on the grass, or in the shadows. From your room to the beach you will only need 2minutes and the walk is really pleasant. The hotel is about 40-50minutes from the Antalya airport. There are excursions available and trips to shopping centre - I haven't used any as was not interested in them.
