Water Side Resort and Spa

TripAdvisor Review
Turkey, Europe
Side

This impressive resort enjoys a privileged location in Titreyengol, situated 70 km from Antalya Airport and only 7 kilometres from Side archaeological site. This opulent property is located just a few steps from a seemingly endless sandy beach bathed in crystalline waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Surrounded by lush and verdant scenery, this establishment boasts a fabulous architectural style, luxurious décor and excellent services. The luminous guest rooms offer space and luxury to each individual guest. Elegant furnishings and soothing tones and deep-purple toned fabrics induce a sense of royalty. Each unit is fitted with individually air conditioner, shower, hair dryer, LCD TV, balcony, complimentary mini bar with water and various juices. After a busy day of sightseeing, travellers may relax with a refreshing swim in the hotel pool, play tennis or indulge in hammam while the youngest ones may let off steam at the paddling pool with slides and children playground.

Fabulous Place!

Review by Emma E Northamptonshire, United Kingdom

Having strated my holiday in a different hotel (which I can only describe as a hell hole) I found a deal online for the Waterside Resort,booked it and moved! And how pleased I am that I did! An absolutely gorgeous place. Spotlessly clean, beautiful view of the river from my 6th floor room (the glass elevator is spectacular) and so much choice of food at mealtimes that it is hard not to over indulge! Staff are lovely (a smile goes a long way). Everything you can possibly need in your room ladies, hairdryer, shampoo and conditioner, shower gel and even slippers...

Lovely big towels (you also get free clean beach towels each day from the Spa) and lashings of hot water. The Spa offers free basic sauna/steam room etc and also pay for packages. No problem with Wi-Fi - was available all over the hotel and even down at the beach.There is a minibus that shuttles back and forth but frankly it is less than a 5 minute gentle stroll so why bother? I enjoyed the walk. Yes not much else round here but easy enough to get taxis into the town if you want to stroll round the shops but having eaten several meals in the town before moving hotel - you won't beat the food of the Waterside.Save your money for the genuine fakes :o)

Very nice early season trip

Review by frannyinDK Roende, Denmark

We took this hotel as a last minute decision for Easter holiday. We have 2 teenagers and were first given a family dublex (downstairs double and then a loft above). We preferred to have two adjoining rooms...

We arrived at 3AM so they couldn't change us the first night but the next morning we were moved to a fantastic higher floor with magnificent sea view and 2 balconies. Staff are extremely attentive and everything is very neat and clean and well taken care of. Staff always ready to help even if language is sometimes a challenge. We communicated efficiently via Google translate which many of the staff turned to if they couldn't speak english. Food was very fresh and tasty. I liked that they don't have exactly the same every day, and up to now after 4 days we have always been able to try something new. It is early in the season so not everythng is 100% up and running like nightly shows and the spa. There are waterslides that we haven't tried yet. Also an advantage that it is not at all busy right now. Cocktails are OK, but of course watered down a bit, but still tasty. Beach is a short walk or for the lazy there is a shuttle bus to take you the 300m. Water is a bit rough because of wind and it looks like there is a quick drop off in depth, but looks like a little down the beach may be not so steep. A bus 50m from the hotel takes you to Manavgat or Side old town (about a 500m walk from Side bustop where you can wander through the ruins for free down to the old town. Bus costs 1 Euro per person, takes about 20 minutes. Overally highly recommend this hotel at least in early season.

Lovely holiday

The staff at this hotel were lovely and polite and nothing was ever too much. The language barrier can b issue but we managed well. Drinks and food good, my fussy son would even find something to eat...

The staff made us a romantic table, using roses and heart napkins.

Spa is fab, photographer is brilliant, we had some lovely photos taken on beach at sunset.

We booked our tours through side excursions b4 we arrived as so much cheaper than through hotel.( no deposit needed)

5 minute walk to beach, very busy in morning but goes quiet at lunch time, bus if your lazy like me!!

Only issue is the other guest from Russia. No manners, no masks, no common sense and can't read signs about covid or follow arrows on floor in restaurant. A few times I told them to move away as to close,or they couldn't get into lift and even at airport they just have no idea of social distancing or how to use a mask (even If they own one).

Please don't let this put u off, this hotel was perfect for our 1st trip to Turkey and we couldn't have asked for more. Also a tip, the Russians do not tip and we found if u did u were more likely to get table service and better drinks (more booze), I taught one bar man to make espresso martinis!!!Some of these guys earn less than 100 lira a day (€10) and they really appreciate it.

Perfect, but with one minor issue

Review by jamietR3782GU Suffolk, United Kingdom

We've just returned from a 5 night stay here and we couldn't have asked for a better hotel.

Just some of the pro's of the hotel..

The staff are brilliant, and will do whatever they can for you. Yes, as others have mentioned their English isn't great at times, but you are in Turkey what are you expecting?

The hotel has everything you need, the pool is big enough so it doesn't feel cramped with more than enough sun loungers and the private beach is a 5 minute walk, or a free 2 minute drive in the hotel minibus.

There's a couple of shops in the hotel for the basics, enough room in the restaurant for everyone (although the outside seating does fill up quickly).

The spa is excellent, as my missus said it was the best massage she's ever had!

The wifi can be a bit patchy in places, but we never had a major issue with it, even at the beach, even video calls were possible.

Its about an hours drive from the airport, and there's nothing in the immediate area but taxis and transfers are easily organised.

Room sizes are a bit small, but unless you're planning to spend a lot of time in them it really isn't an issue. The pillows and mattresses are quite hard which is fine for me but not for everyone...

The only issue I had was the size of the duvet/sheets on our double bed. It was far too small for the both of us and didn't even cover the whole bed. Apart from that the room is cool enough and clean and thats all we really wanted.

The selection of food is good enough with both of us finding enough we liked so we never got bored of it. The outside grill was especially good.

Now to the downside...the Russians... I get that their culture is very different, but even if there wasn't a global pandemic they don't seem to understand personal space or how to queue (maybe thats just a British thing?). The amount of time they'd just push in whilst queuing for food, or try to jam 10 people in a lift signed for a maximum of 4 was ridiculous, and despite having to sign to agree to the covid restrictions on check-in the staff seemed powerless to manage this at all.

Overall though, we couldn't have been more pleased with the hotel and staff and are even planning to, hopefully, take the kids there next year

Wonderful, brilliant and safe

this hotel is glorious, the staff all wear masks and gloves, so you feel totally safe and secure. As we were basically in a bubble, we didn't need to keep masks on. heaven in the heat...

food fresh, looked good and , mainly, healthy eating. lots of choice. pool area good, beach also. our room faced the sea and was spacious and, even though the balcony was not large, it was enough. cannot praise it enough
