Excellent, spotless hotel

We stayed for 1 week. Hotel is located few miles away from Side, but local buses will take you to Side and Manavgat Centre in about 10 min. Ride cost 11 liras, or €1 one way. It was my seventh time in Turkey, and I can not say bad word about this place...

Location was great, just by the sea, with beautiful garden area. Lots of bars, separate children pools and slides at the front of the hotel, and main pool at the back with sea view. Hotel is very clean, staff is polite and work hard to make guests happy. Snack bar is good, and offers Turkish gozleme, kebab, Lahmacun and desserts. If you love smoothies: Bar tender at Passion bar named: Gokhan is an absolute star of this place. The way he prepares and present smoothies is just amazing. He is a genius and very polite man. Thank you Gokhan. We will miss you.

It has to be Arcanus!

Review by lconti11 Clitheroe, United Kingdom

Truly great hotel. Made even better by the staff. The Arcanus is set beachfront at Side with several restaurants, bars and very good entertainment...

If you want cocktails delivered on rollerblades, golden sand and a modern, spotlessly clean hotel with a stunning pool look no further. Special mention to Oguz who looked after my girlfriend & I all week ensuring we were never without drinks, laughs and catered to our every need. Using his words as he glided away on his rollerblades after delivering ice cold cocktails....he was "perfect." The hotel itself is wrapped around a beautiful swimming pool with several jacuzzis which you then walk down 50m onto the beach front and a huge private deck. Side old town is 5 min taxi ride away and is €8 or you can catch a bus every 20mins. None of the staff are pushy but there is plenty to keep you entertained should you wish to take part. Multiple options of food and there is also 4 A La Carte options for €10 per head. The evening entertainment was very good but the standout was the circus party which was an amazing night. They really do go all out here and make you feel special. The on-site water park with multiple slides and splash park is fantastic for children (big seeing as I'm 38 or small). We took the option of using the Turkish bath spa package with massages which was excellent. I have stayed in Side before in different hotels which were very good but this hotel's vibe is a class above more like Mexico as a feel. We would happily return to Arcanus a sip Oguz's cocktails once again.

Amazing holiday, amazing staff🤩

Review by PiotrekMimi79 Cheltenham, United Kingdom

Omg, I can’t thank you enough for your great customer service. Arcanus wasn’t my choice, jet2 cancelled my previous accommodation just 2 weeks before our holiday but tbh I am glad I stayed with you🤩 I love it every second in your hotel. Everything was just perfect, food, cleanliness, location and beautiful beach. Thank you to all of you for your very hard work but always with smile. Mehmet &Enes, thank you for your amazing “snapchat” cocktails and white wine😉 All the best for you. 100% highly recommended hotel.

Unexpectedly Awesome

I came to a last minute unplanned vacation and was a little bit concerned as I didn't have the time to research hotels, but I ended up absolutely loving the place: the staff is obsessively clean, food is delicious, rooms are great, and the hotel's territory is simply fantastic. The only con - I had to take my work with me in order to come here, and didn't expect to not have good internet in my room.

I ended up working from one of the main lobbies, but as you can imagine, it's not the most comfortable place to work 8 hours a day, hhh...

Other than internet, oh my goodness, I'm so coming back here :)))

Was birthday escape

It was spontaneous decision to escape for my birthday in a warm and sunny place, so just based on intuition the decision was made and here we are in the airplane. First of all I would like to mention one thing that I never see before, attitude! We all know that business is business and customer could be a night mare sometimes. But I think here I found an exception...

From the first minute we step in I feel like I come home to see my family. Just a genuine warm smile, friendly manners and treat every single guest as a king. All the hotel smells of fragrance, every single part or it. It was provided a booking for the alacarte restaurant and 5 masage sessions that actually solved some of my health issues. Every single request was done immediately without disturbing questions.
Buy the way it is cat friendly place. Food and drinks are delicious and no limits at all, everything was brought to our table,so I guess only risk is to put more kilograms on hips:))) I remember in Majorca after chek out braslet was taken so if you want a drink after you have to pay additional, here is not even a case. So based on previous experience I dare to ask about payment, manager smile to me and said, all our guests are friends actually so feel free to enjoy it till the end. Fantastic ! STRONGLY RECOMMEND
