Iberotel Serra Palace

Before the trip, we were faced with the fact that the photos of this hotel was not where :), here is to fill this gap Iberotel Serra Palace. In the first lines it should be noted that in Turkey we went to rest not for the first time.Why – because he needed a simple uncomplicated holiday at the sea without worries and extra crossings. The hotel was selected on the money-level-place criteria from what was in the offers for 2!!! day before departure. Just opened Iberotel Serra Palace lured adequate price, free choice of number of days and the name, but he was very confused by the lack of any photos, reviews and information – it is logical, because it was officially opened 5 days before our acquaintance with him – we took a chance! We will try to cover objectively all sides of this place for vacationers: the Hotel is located 10 km from side, in the district of Manavgat, or rather on its most terrible outskirts, i.e. leaving the hotel, you get to a deserted field with sheds and cows, to the road 600 meters. No villages, no shops, NOTHING! The hotel grounds are average acres, but naked, ie, only the English lawn and Avenue of Egyptian palm trees. The landscape was indeed painfully reminiscent of the familiar Radisson in Sharm El-Sheikh. The main building includes restaurants, bars, saunas and baths, a gym and a conference room on the upper floors of the room. Very nice looking design – Japanese minimalism, strict forms – very tasteful. You can see the lack of savings on the details, nice furniture, materials, everything, down to the last detail. In front of the main entrance was built in a number of shops of the first necessity, and in this case, a sight for tourists, not traveling outside of the hotel. It has everything from sun creams to leather shoes, there is also a completely useless medical center. Why useless – Yes, because there is no Russian-English-speaking person, and there is no doctor, and does not happen, and you can not buy drugs, because without a doctor they are not sold J. We had the joy of communicating with this institution and were shocked by the presence of the necessary medicine, but the inability to buy it. On the other side of the main building there are two and three-storey buildings with balconies on the upper and terraces on the lower floors. Rooms meters 16 sq. + normal bathroom, quite cozy, and most importantly new. It was nice to see really new furniture, textile interior items, plumbers. Food – without a doubt the food was good. It is clear that for the rest of more than 5 days everything seems monotonous, but here everything was in order. Sufficient number and variety of fruits, vegetables, meat and fish, including seafood in the form of crayfish and king prawns. In all inclusive included drinks not only local production, but also imported (martinis, Campari, quite normal whiskey, etc.). All drinks were officially free until 24:00, but in practice and at 2 am you could count on free doping J, which was also pleasant! There were of course inconveniences associated with the “new” hotel. As usual, it was handed over a little earlier than he was really ready to receive tourists, the beach bar did not work the first half of the rest, during the day there was the sound of a jackhammer, some safes were locked, but it is now functioning. There are a lot of swimming pools on the territory, there are slides, a children’s town, and a well-equipped beach with all water activities. Developed animation program, however, mainly in German, because most of the tourists are Germans, but at the request of the Russian population introduced dubbing in English. language. All kinds of sports entertainment, children’s games, evening show and disco. However, the hotel is rather relaxing family vacation, many young people, but pomolimsya, for couples or newlyweds. Minus the disco on the beach and the water surface too well carries the invigorating music late at night, but this is more for those rooms whose Windows overlook the beach, ie, payment for sea view J.
