This resort is the best I've ever stayed in!
I've known Simba (animator chef) and Zizu (animator) for 5 years now. I met them at a different hotel. I saw they were at Kusadasi Golf and Spa and I wanted to see them again, but (seeing the pictures and videos of the resort) I thought the resort was too expensive. Turns out, it is not! It was actually even cheaper than what we usually pay for a resort in Turkey! The price was such a good deal, we booked immediately. And it was the best decision I've ever made! This resort is absolutely gorgeous! And the staff are the friendliest people I've ever met in my life. From the check-in, to the manager, to the bar staff, to the maids, Everyone! They are so friendly and sweet, they make your stay even more amazing! What really surprised us were the rooms. Wow! Complete apartments! And you can actually bring the food from the restaurants to your room! They have take away boxes! Bar is open till 2 am. That was also a big plus since (at most hotels) it closes at midnight. The resort is also very clean. They are always cleaning! And they do it with a smile. Animation is perfect! Zizu is one of the best animators I've ever seen. He is just so much fun to be around. Always happy and smiling and dancing. You can't not love him. Mimo is amazing as well. When he does aquagym you will laugh so hard you will get a six pack in an hour. Noddy was always amazing at darts. We've been back for a month and we're still saying "Reaaaallyy???" everyday. Ozzy is such a sweet little sweet heart. He was new and I can't wait to see what he becomes. Beth is a lovely girl who does the kids animation. Such a sweety. And Simba (Hamza). Sweet Hamza. The best chef. I love that man. He makes the best shows and sometimes I wonder if he isn't some long lost brother from Michael Jackson. That man can dance! I also want to give a special shout-out to Ali (manager). Such a sweet gentleman. Always in for a chat and always helpful. He made me feel safe and welcome. And also a shout-out to the guys who organize the busses to Kusadasi Centre. They are so sweet! We visited Kusadasi Golf and Spa for 15 days in May (2018). The resort, the staff and even the guests were so amazing, we decided right then and there we're going back in September. Please do not hesitate to visit. I promise you, you are gonna love it! I fell in love with this place and the people. And I can't wait to come back. Some extra mentions: - Don't let the distance discourage you! It was 7 euro's per person for a round way trip to Kusadasi Centre and it was a 20 min drive. You barely notice it's 20 mins. Same as the beach only the beach is free. If you make lunch or dinner reservation at Murphy's in Kusadasi Centre (which I highly recommend! I've been there many times and they are the best in the centre!) they will pick you up and drop you off, free of charge. - For me, personally, the food at the snackbar was the best. The fried chicken at the snackbar is the best I've ever tasted. Breakfast, lunch and dinner at the restaurant are good! Just walk around a bit because people don't seem to realize there are more stations outside. - Alcohol is really good! Not watered down and actually pretty strong! - Go to the main pool for the animators. You're not gonna regret it! - It is quite hilly but it's not problem if you're healthy. If you have trouble moving around, call the reception and they will send a car to pick you up and bring you to the lobby. Don't be shy to ask. They really don't mind. Or ask for a room close to the main pool when booking :).

What one should realize before booking
First, it is not a real resort! It is an apartment real estate project mixed with resort guests. Thus the facilities for resort tourists are too little, too limited and below standard. It looks nice on the pictures, but for example there are not enough swimming pools, there is no lobby, no disco, a ridiculous small sauna, and so on. They try to fix these problems with for example a shuttle to a minuscule private beach (where you will be packed like in a cinema looking to a third class sea location) or organizing paid trips to a club at night in Kusadasi and so on. The rooms might look spacious and luxurious. Because they are designed for Turkish families who buy such an apartment. However they are not suited for resort tourists. For example, you will be eaten alive by insects because the windows have no protection against them. So you have to close the windows at night. At that point you will discover the sewage problem. A bad smell comes from the bad rooms. Perhaps because the complex is build on a hill, the sewage is somehow not drained enough. (if you complain they seem to flush the sewage system with water but still the rooms have not enough ventilation for a good air quality at night. Unless you keep the windows open and are eaten alive by the bugs) Probably because the architects planed for quiet Turkish families they did not expect that the small swimming pools in the center of the apartments will be over used by loud/drunken tourists during the day and late into the night. (If you have really bad luck you will have a room where the problematically British gather. They are aggressive, unpleasant and above all loud) The sound problems are a general problem. Everywhere noises from machines, badly placed facilities, roads and so on. For these kind of reasons the apartments are probably largely not sold to Turkish families and they try to convert it into a resort now. Of course the mountain hill view is beautiful. But this view is largely unavailable or used for the resort tourists in practice. The breakfast is bad. Unless you are English and like cheap eggs, beans and sausages. The lunch remembers you at the times that your family had no money and your mother was creative. The remains of the previous day are recycled and so on. The evening diner you look forward because there at last is food. But it is cheap, low quality compared to considerable cheaper resorts we visited. Basically the whole system pushed you to eat as cheaply as possible. And you find yourself quickly eating at the snack bars a pizza or a simple salad with tuna. Also because of the walking distance to the main restaurant and your desire to keep your place at the swimming pool. The lower staff is extremely friendly and good. They are also very respective towards women. But management seems to be only aimed at keeping expenses as low as possible. We observed a number of times that a tourist was bullied by management. However the lower staff is certainly super quality. The animation team performs most of the evening shows. Other resorts hire considerable more outside professional performers. So after a few night it is more of the same. Also it has a "school theater" / "toilet humor" quality. Except for the acrobats. Because the animation team is used for the shows, and to bring tourists to the external clubs (remember the place has no disco or place to dance) they are too sleepy during the day to do the normal animation activities. Realize that there is also minimal space at night to relax except one small bar, who turns in the evening into an overcrowded "east enders" pub. The nighty shows are not only low quality but also badly planned, so your evenings will have boredom gaps and you fill find yourself going to your rooms often with a feeling of wanting to do something but there is nothing to do. You will find no musicians like in other resorts. Music is bad taste, loud and intended
