Barut Hemera Resort & Spa Side Reviews
Neat hotel, super friendly staff and amazing food :D Nov 19, 2010
I've been to Turkey several times already but never in the area of Side. So finding a nice hotel wasn't easy since there are hundreds to choose from. I'm not fond of huge hotels therefore I was looking for a smaller one which cut down the range ;)
The Barut Hemera Resort & Spa was choosen since the ratings of tourists were 99 % great and because it's close to Side. Only 3 km to walk along the beach or by dolmus (mini bus). A station is right in front of the hotel.
Our expectations on a 5* hotel were more than fulfilled. The staff was friendly, observant and helpful, the food was amazing and various, the hotel itself neat and clean, the spa area was small but adequate and the garden was just a dream.
The check-in was very quick and our room was upgraded to a deluxe room although we booked a standard one. The room was adequate and very clean. TV, minibar and water boiler was part of the equipment. The bathroom was big enough and very clean. Equiped with shampoo, shower gel, body lotion etc. The balcony was ok and protected to the neighbours with walls right and left. The view on the pool area and the garden was perfect.
The bars and restaurants were great. Clean and with friendly staff as all over the hotel.
I stayed in 5* hotel in Turkey every time but I never had a hotel with such a variety of food. The menus were delicious. They changed every day and during our 10 days stay we never had the same offer in the evening, except of lettuce ;) The food was prepared by the cooks in an open kitchen. Fish, lamb, chicken, turkey, beef, rice, noodles, various vegetables, lettuce, fresh fruits, bread and the best deserts ever were served. Everything was fresh and tasty.
The beach was easy to reach. Only seperated from the hotel by the seafront. It was cleaned every day. The sunbeds and parasols were clean and in a good shape and enough for every guest.
All in all it was a perfect place for a perfect relaxing holiday. We'll be back that's for sure.
