..."

The hotel itself was very clean and well presented and standard of room cleaning good.

Food of reasonable standard but a bit repetitive every day.
Restaurant area more like a canteen with a very high turnover of diners.

Not much for kids to do during the day and occasional shows in the evening of a poor standard.

Single ladies please beware as one of the married members of the restaurant staff targets single ladies to befrend them to obtain money so please be careful and dont believe any stories.

Perhaps the manager is not aware this has happened.

My Wife and i have been to Turkey for the past 7 or 8 years to different areas and hotels (usually with First Choice) and out of all the hotels we have stayed in we found that the Garden of Sun far exceded our expections.

It had a masive pool with plenty of space and sun beds, the room was spacious, and although there were only the two of us, the room was made to take four, two lifts to take you to all five floors, there was an inside and outdoor seating for meals, again plenty of room, The meals were excellent on all the fourteen days we were there and the staff worked hard to make sure everyone had a good time and were comfortable. The hotel is just a short 15 minute walk into the centre of ALTINKUM where you find all the restuarants and shops.

First we would like to thank the FIRST CHOICE REP. JUDITH who was nearly always there to answer any questions you might have
Then there was the housekeeping ours was called MERRAL who was in the room daily and did agood job making sure the room was just right, Then there was HANDENUR CANOK who seemed to be the hotel customer services. Then there were the waiters who seemed to fly about all over never stopping, in particur young KADIR who was always smiling and on occasions tried to teach me some of the Turkish language as did another waiter ARMOT. SALIH on reception was very helpfull as were the other Staff on reception, and in the dining room you had AHMET head chef standing by making sure everything was just so.

ALL IN ALL WE RECKON THIS WAS THE BEST HOLIDAY WE HAVE HAD.

This was our first time in Turkey and we enjoyed it. The hotel was fabulous architecturaly and was fitted out to a high standard. We enjoyed the food very much although we did eat out a few times as it was a bit samey.

If you are a vegitarian it will be Paradise for you. However we did have issues with the drinks, myself, and my partner only drank two drinks at the hotel all week, prefering to go over the road to the Moonshine Bar instead or down to the seafront.

We also had problems on checking out with reguards to the mini bar and we were not alone, beware they try to get money out of you once you have checked out.

Overall we enjoyed the holiday and thought the pool area and entertainment staff were first rate.
Big thumbs up to the staff at the Moonshine Bar as well.

I have been to Altinkum a number of times and frequently stay in the Garden of the Sun. The thing to remember about Altinkum and the hotels is generally take 1.5 stars off the official rating. remember you are in Turkey not spain so the 5 star in altinkum is really a 3 to 3 1/2 star in spain.

The food is not fantastic but how much do you really need to eat in 40 degrees heat

There is a snack bar for kids, pizzas and chips.

Fantastic size main pool plus 2 water slides for kids.

For those with children who like football the hotel has the best astro turf football pitch around (proper 3g astro its a fantastic football pitch. Tennis also available.

The main square is a gentle 10 minute walk into town with plenty of cheap eateries and shops and bars.

Most places will offer you a free taxi service back to hotel if you eat with them.

Down in the town they have daily boat cruises, which are fantastic value and a great way of getting a tan.

Finally the apollon temple is a must see, ruins from centuries past.

One thing you are guaranteed is wall to wall sunshine....enjoy

"Got back yesterday from our 1 week holiday in GOS which was our first time there.

Got back yesterday from our 1 week holiday in GOS which was our first time there.

The hotel itself was very clean and well presented but unfortunately everything wasn't. The shower was frequently cold and the mini bar was always warm!!

The staff were very rude and arrogant at reception and at the pool side bar - never smiled and weren't to happy when you keep going back!! The food was the same everyday and got very boring especially for my partner who didn't like most of the food so had to eat spaghetti every night!!

The beer was very watered down so didn't ever manage to get the slightest bit tipsy (weren't happy!!) imported drinks like malibu were very expensive!!

Upon checking out of the hotel they tried charging us for the room telephone (we tried ringin home but didnt connect) but we refused to pay as we never spoke to anyone.

Reluctantly we paid them but we weren't happy, we said we would complain and explain exactly what happened on the internet and as soon as we said that they gave us our money back!!

They try to grab every last penny out of u but as soon as you say about leaving a bad review or complaint, they will do anything to stop you!!!!!!!

"Ive just returned home from the Garden Of Sun Hotel in Altinkham in Turkey and what a relief..."

Ive just returned home from the Garden Of Sun Hotel in Altinkham in Turkey and what a relief to be back, were do i start.. the hotel itself is nice and a nice size pool and the rooms are cleaned every day with clean towels replaced every day, but thats about as good as it gets.

The food was the same everyday cold and poor, a lot of the hotel guests fell ill in the week i was there and thats was me included i was stuck in my room on the toilet for 2 days my little girl was ill and had to have an injection.

My partner was ill but sadley we wasnt the only ones, most people we spoke to had the same bad experience, we were told by a number of people that the fresh mineral water was infact tap water.

The poolbar staff were miserable, not much for kids to do during the day and as for the night it didnt get much better, we expected a lot more for are money as we were allinclusive, oh and the spirits were watered down didnt feel drunk once.

I would rate the hotel a 3 star and not a 5 star i would never go back again and when i read good reviews, i think have these people stayed in the same hotel as me, good luck to anyone that stays in this hotel..

"We stayed at the Garden of Sun at the end of August for a week and our biggest complaint was..."

We stayed at the Garden of Sun at the end of August for a week and our biggest complaint was that the holiday wasn't long enough! I'm going to on a bit now but I can't not defend the hotel against all these bad reviews, it just doesn't deserve it.

This was our 7th time all inclusive in Turkey and we've been lucky not to have had a bad holiday, this was no different. The Hotel itself is lovely, clean and spacious, plenty of space in even one of the smaller rooms for 4 adults, lets face it, how long do you spend in your room anyway, the room was cleaned daily with fresh towels and there wasn't a spot of dust even under the beds.

The restaurant was big and airey, I saw very few flies but the food was covered anyway. The food was good, a wide selection every lunchtime and evening, if you had a bit of everything on your plate every meal it might have got boring but there was always at least 3 choices of dish, plus lots of vegetables and salads and turkish style desserts to die for, the chips were cold a couple of times but that wasn't helped by people leaving the lids off the trays!

The staff were very helpful and friendly and cleared away promptly most of the time, even when it was pretty busy. We didn't eat at the snack bar much as we were more than satisfied with the food in the restaurant, but the odd burger, turkish pizza or chips we did have were fine, all I can say is if you want sausage and chips or sunday dinner go to Blackpool not Turkey, or go self catering and frequent the numerous cafes selling those things after a 10/15 minute walk (or 5 minute dolmus ride from the back gates) into Altinkum, which was reasonably cheap, even for drinks and cocktails if we didn't fancy going to bed when the all inclusive drinks finished at 11.

This wasn't really a problem, we'd had enough most nights by then anyway. The plastic cups at the pool bar were a decent size for spirits and we had no problem with available glasses, either during the day or in the evening, and I saw no broken glass whatsoever, all down to not many people having glass outside.

The 2 drink rule wasn't a problem for us, if all 4 of us wanted a drink 2 of us would go to the bar! The bar staff were great and I didn't get the impression the drinks were watered down, they seemed pretty strong to me! All the water at the pool bar comes through a filter system from which they fill up the water and juice dispensers, so it's ok to drink and have ice.

The entertainment team were brilliant, Marco, the boss, is absolutely bonkers, but a really nice guy when you get talking to him, the others are very young and enthusiasic, they work very very hard and long hours, as do all the staff, and always do their best to help you enjoy yourself, the shows in the amphitheatre are the usual turkish stuff, slapstick, sketch shows, etc but if you go with an open mind they can by really very funny.

There is a small bar at the amphitheatre usually with a couple of punches on the go,, which were lovely, but if you want something different it's only a minute back to the pool bar. Our kids are older, so didn't need entertaining, but the one of the kids reps was english and great, the younger ones seemed to be enjoying themselves at the kid's club and their cabaret show was pretty good.

The pool was big and clean, the hotel provides pool/beach towels, the pool staff fantastic and I have never seen as many sunbeds in a hotel. Yes you did have to get up early if you wanted a particular spot (saying that I was never up before half 7) but they would find you beds and put them wherever you wanted them whatever time of day you arrived at the pool. The umbrellas do need updating but apparantly that is something they are looking at for the winter season.

Basically it's a great hotel, but you have to treat the staff how you would like to be treated, smile, say please and thank you and talk to them and they'll do anything for you, complain constantly and be rude and what do you expect back?

They are human and work all hours in searing heat.
We have a rule of not going back to the same hotel just in case we don't enjoy the holiday as much, but if we booked at short notice again we would go back.

"Just returned from GOS and I can honestly say never again!!

Just returned from GOS and I can honestly say never again!!

The Hotel Accomadation itself is fantastic it is clean and the family room was spacious enough for us.
The grounds are beautiful.

The restaurant served pretty much the same food every day which did get a bit boring.

The all inclusive i feel from previous experiance was a joke.
limits to 2 drinks per person, beer was weak. The children could
not reach their own drinks and there was never any cups which meant queing in long ques.

The staff come over as very rude and arrogant. But we had a couple of nights out with them and they are terrified of management they have cameras on them all day.

We put in a complaint regarding cats in the restaurant area the general manager refused to talk to us. One of the cats scratched my daughter as well as 6 other children and now is on a course of anti rabies injections, the GOS still have not done anything about this up until we left yesterday.

They seemed to be selling timeshares for winter which meant people were being shown around all the time and served at the tables whilst we waited in queues.

PLEASE Keep kids away from the cats, the turkish hospital is not a good experiance for kids

With a lot of improvement this hotel could be fantastic

"I have been to Turkey about 10 times altinkum, i love turks, are very friendly and i respect..."

I have been to Turkey about 10 times altinkum, i love turks, are very friendly and i respect their culture, but this was by far the worst all inclusive i have ever stayed. The drinks were watered down especially the vodka you had to queue at the bar with loads of people waiting and only 1 bar staff serving. My little girl queued an hour for a ice cream which is only on for 1 hour a day with still one person serving.

The adult entertainment was of a very poor standard, they had the animation team day and night which was well below Parr of what i expected in a 5* hotel their was no bar in the amphitheatre. the bar closed at 11 pm and if you were queing and it was after this time you would have to pay for a drink that was more water content. on holiday you would expect entertainment go on longer not be like a ghost hotel after 11pm. i am not blaming the Turkish people working their as they are under poor management, their was loads of people complaining at all times.

Our holiday rep was great from first choice hotel management and pool bar staff were so rude. They would serve the other nationalities in the hotel before the british and also allowed them more than two drinks at a time. The pool bar area was very dirty and tables were never wiped down. Our room was being cleaned at 630pm and not done very well. We love Turkey and have been many times and this was the worst run hotel we have been to.

The hotel was fine, but we never even seen our rep, we didn't receive a welcome pack to let us know what was going on nothing about the resort no details about excursions no details about the hotel facilities no details about what to do in an emergency not a thing, I thought booking with a big Company like Thomas Cook it would be very professional but I was totally disappointed with the Company and the Company's rep.

When we arrived back at Bodrum airport to fly home the plane was delayed (yet again) for 2 and 1/2 hrs and there wasn't a rep in sight to ask what was going on so we had to sit again waiting on a broken down Thomas Cook airplane that when you got on it if you weren't so desperate to get home you would have refused to fly with it as it was filthy an absolute disgrace for a company this size. Last year we went with Goldtrail and from now on we will be going any other company other than Thomas Cook

Well what can i say about the Garden Of Sun , i wish i never went there the hotel is lovely the people are not they charge you for everthing even when you lock yourself out of your room, the drinks are watered down but not in the same bottle when they think you are a little bit drunk thats when they use another bottle making out it is vodka but all it is is water , the ice cream well now that is guarded better than the crown jewels of england we never got one free ice cream i am realy dissapointed with this holiday i was told by first choise this was the place to take young children how wrong they are about that the water slides only came on for a hour in the morn an ihr in the afternoon we were told the reason for this is they do not want to pay someone to stand there an watch the children , the food is okay until you realise it is recycled from previous meals we all ended up with stomach cramps etc , but i think the worst was when they would not give us any milk for the babys bottle unless we paid for it which i feel was expensive , and when you pay for all inclusive why should you . At the bar we were allowed only 2 drinks per person it realy was a terrible holiday so to all you people out there please believe me when i tell you not to go there , we could not wait to come home such a waste of nearly 3thousand pounds .

There was a lot of choice of nice food, the hotel is 1 1/2 km from town but the buses run every 2 mins for 1 lira. BIG TIP: if you go to the saturday market take 10 pound notes in sterling, the turks prefer them and give you a better rate. The pool slides are fun but there is no supervision. Animation lads r good fun and friendly as are most staff although english isn't their strongest point. Overall me and my wife & kids loved it and would recommend it. Dont be put off by too many negative reports and im sure that everyone we spoke to said the same.
Also, the altinkum/didim water park is worth a visit, it is cheaper, reachable by local bus for 1 1/2 lira although it is 1/2 an hour away from G.O.S and is safer than the rep would say.

Hotel is very clean and tidy, staff very friendly and generally helpful, massive pool, seperate kids pool, and plunge pool for the two slides. Slides only open for an hour in morning and two hours in afternoon, not so bad if you wish to spend some time with your kids on holiday. Standard room big enough for us 4, air con adequate in 40+ degres heat.
Some items weren't all inclusive, bar closed at 11, but with young kids they were normally ready for bed by then, icecreams were kids only from 3 til 4 each afternoon at the beach towel hut.
Food was a let down, snack bar did lovely pizza each afternoon + burgers and chips, restaurant food was ok, but virtually the same every day so soon became boring, both lunchtimes and evenings! No childrens menu, ours lived on bread and chips for most of the holiday. Didn't use the a la carte restaurant, again no child provision, and reports were that we didn't miss much.
To sum up? nice hotel, shame about the catering!!

We had 2 Weeks at the Garden of Sun and thought it was pretty good, a few things that were not as good was the all inclusive bar stopped at 23:00 hrs. Also the evening entertainment,well there was not any apart from a childrens disco, and as we had an early morning return flight we got charged £30 to move to a very sub standard room for a late check out.

Hotel environment was spacious and reasonable clean. However the reastaurant and eating facilities were terrible. During two weeks all of the people you spoke to had stomach upsets,alot requiring hospital treatment. During two weeks stay we only ate in the restaurant on 2 occasions! Due to the abundance of flies on the food which was uncovered! The hot meals were not hot and I watched the chefs place hot items in containers and leave the lids open! However hotel guests did not help the problem as one lady , hope she reads this was too impatient to wait for the food tongs and placed her bear hands in the salad to help herself!
Overall if you stay at this hotel - EAT OUT!!!!!

"Thomas Cook give this a three star plus and our tour operator First choice give a 4 star. Th..."

Thomas Cook give this a three star plus and our tour operator First choice give a 4 star. The Turkish tourist board give it a 5 star. It will never be a five star, as it has not been designed or built according to five star international standards. Having stayed at 5 star in business and on holiday over many years, we would give it a 4 star tourist class which would equivocate to a 4 star minus on the international stage, this due to a lack of concierge at reception and no proper a la carte dining facilities, also the public areas were pretty small inside.

The property opened in 2006 and there were huge problems in May and June, one of the duty managers at the hotel opined that they really should have opened in July, so the early complaints in those months were justified.
We found a lot of the problems had been ironed out by the time we arrived. The pool is great and very large, though I would haver sacrificed the size for an additional smaller pool elsewhere, where there was no music blasting!
Great variety of food and our kids had no problems with it, the only problem being the poor restaurant style with long benches and no privacy for a party of four. Not 4* on this account.
Staff were great, friendly and hard working and I would be reluctant to criticise this hotel heavily on the basis of this, the ratio of staff to guests was tremendous, definately 5* category, we have experienced worse at Hilton's. Staff were constantly out cleaning the public areas during the day and there was a host of security staff at all entrances, making it a secure environment for the kids to play in.
Would I go back knowing what I know now - yes! but only for a week purely on the basis of not favouring all inclusive packages. The resort is the Benidorm of Turkey so this would preclude us ever going back to Altinkum, though I am sure many people would find this an attraction - each to his/her own!

There are still complaints as we left from people, ranging from too much Turkish food, (but there are a lot of Turkish people holidaying there in the hotel), to lack of evening entertainment, probably justified but didn't bother us. It was more than made up by the lovely landscape gardens and great staff and food which we found no fault in, plus closeness to one of the best beaches in the area.
The one piece of Turkish culture we managed to extract in the area was the temple of Appolo - a must! (Durham).

After reading the two other reviews I feel I should add mine. We loved our holiday at the Garden of Sun, Staff were great, helpful and polite.They work long and hard for little money.The hotel was very clean. Lifts were a bit temprimental, but we were on 1st floor so walked up. Electric was on all the time. Our rep was great(Claire) Kids disco was on at 9.30 everynight, although there were not many children the staff still had smiles on there faces. Our flight was delayed so we stayed at the hotel for 3 hours rather than the airport, which was great. Dont be put off by some reviews, you have to take it as you find it and we would go back tomorrow if we could. (Cambs).

My freind and i have just returned from garden of sun all inclusive
All I can say what a con If you were taking children there it would be a disaster there is limited choice for them no kids club water slides are on one hour per day ice cream is only one hour a day for then. The way to the beach is down a dirt track any one with walking problems would not be able to make it

The hotel staff are rude and unfreindly

If you bring drink or food into the hotel they will take it of you so beware

We paid for our safe for 6 days but as we not leaving until midday they turned the safe of and we were told we would have to pay extra to get our passports out of them

every thing is limited to what you want choice of four drinks at the bar

so i would be very carefull of picking this hotel (Isle of Man)
