Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend this hotel to families. The location was good as it wasn't surrounded by other hotels and the facilities were second to none.

Not a bad thing about it
Well...Where do i start! This hotel is great! Not only was the hotel high standard the town itself was very pleasing. Me and my family went in mid september 2004 and the weather was to die for! And the staff were very friendly. There is a great selection of land and water activities for all ages. The turkish bath is very relaxing and the rooms were standard but who spends alot of time in there room (apart from sleeping)! My favourite thing about this holiday was around the clock drinks which, because its all inclusive, are free which saves carrying loose change in your pocket! The views were stunninng and the private beach...well the name says it all! I have just this very minute booked up to go september 2005. I am certain if you go you will find this is definately well worth the money!!! And please dont hesiate to email me for more info! :)

We visited the hotel in August 2004, and both my wife and i agreed the holiday would take some beating. The room was spotless and spacious,and i would recomend a room at the back it seemed much quieter on the night. Anybody who complains about the food must have gone to a different hotel to us, even my seven year old didn't complain once. Along with a fantastic beach, superb pool and great hostpitallity it was a holiday not to be forgotten. We've booked again this year and can't wait, see you there.
We had an excellent time.
We had an excellent time. Although the hotel was definitely not a 4*, the staff were very friendly. Great for young families. Food was excellent. There was so much to choose from, and people STILL managed to complain and chose to eat elsewhere despite being all inclusive. You can't please all the people.............
Try Tropicana Didim Beach it's brilliant!!
I have just returned from the Tropicana Hotel Didim Beach (August 2004) and my family and I have had the most fantastic time. I am well travelled and been to many restaurants and if you complain about the food in this hotel you must be mad. The standard of food is absolutely excellent with amazing choice and quality. It's the best we've ever had in a hotel, especially fully inclusive. The staff are helpful and friendly and the service in all areas is wonderful. There could be more entertainment in the evening, but the local bars are good fun. The site of the hotel is good as it is just outside the town, so is very quiet. The only draw back I can see is that the rooms are a bit shabby, but Turkish standards are not the same as in England. At least they are clean. I would recommend this hotel to anybody!!!
Great holiday destination
Stayed here from 8 Aug 2004 for 2 weeks. Food was not bad considering number/nationality of guests to cater for. Private beach was lovely. Pools were great although not enough sunbeds/umbrellas provided. Hotel was very clean and most of the staff were helpful & friendly. Would certainly consider coming here again. Very good value for money.
Very Good Time
I went to Didim Beach on 21st June 2004 and loved every minute of it. The beach was great, the hotel great with everything catered for, the food was good with something different both lunchtimes and evenings. You couldn't fault the service. Everyone was so polite and friendly. Probably a bit more nightly entertainment was needed for those not wanting to go to the nightclub in the early hours but the two evenings they had some were great. I enjoyed myself so much that I am going back 6th September this same year!
Good value for money
Hotel Didim beach
Stayed at the Didim Beach 3 May 04 for 2 weeks, paid 400.00 all inc.
Hotel was clean, food was good and well worth the money, going back 20 Sept 04. This hotel is not a 4star i would say a 3+
GREAT PLACE FOR THE PRICE YOU PAY
This hotel offers great value for money,the place is clean and tidy. OK the food might not be great but then again it's not that bad, the bar service is 24hrs, you dont get that anywhere else. We had a great time here and would recommended it to anyone thinking of going to Turkey.Please don't let these poor reviews put you off, give it a try you won't regret it.
we stayed at didim beach for 2 weeks 18/4/04 the hotel was very clean .gardens and pool well cared for ,but the food was terrible cold and very poor quality dont go to the ala carte restuarant we were there for over 2 hrs and had still not had the main course .ala carte in turkey means you do not get to choose what you eat

on Wednesday we drove north from Mesta to Volissos, a working mountain village in northwest Chios. After a terrific lunch of locally raised salad and veggies, we drove around the northeast part of the island on narrow mountain roads with breathtaking views of forests, streams, and the sea. After a brief stop at an ancient temple of Cybele, popularly known as "Homer's seat" (he was thought to teach and recite here), we cruised into Chios Town and back to the Grecian Castle ...
... ravaged by the Turks. The first has remained a ghost town, but the second is being revived as a weekend and holiday getaway with lovely little houses and breathtaking sea views. On the way back to Mesta, we had tea in the charming mastic village of Vessa and a great seaside fish dinner in Limenas. ...
Yesterday we drove to Mesta, in southwestern Chios, our base for exploring the mastihohoria or mastic villages. These walled, fortified towns were the center of the mastic trade, which flourished on Chios from the 16th century to the end of Turkish rule. (Mastic was used to make chewing gum, flavorings, medicine, and fixatives.) Mesta is dark but beautiful. Pyrgi, which we visited today, is a work of art - full of black and white houses decorated in the Genoese sgraffito style. ...
The house was closed off from the road by a spooky, imposing gate, but just as we arrived, a young woman emerged on a motor scooter. When we inquired, she parked the scooter and let us in. She lives there in decaying splendor with her father, a descendant of the Zygomalas on his mother's side. They both graciously showed us around and shared their family history. ...
... Bev our Australian hostess provided me with cold & flu tablets which were very helpful. So I rested whilst the group toured some of Chios and visited a citrus farm, of which the latter wasn't so very interesting.
Lunch on the ship, and about noon we set sail for Mykonos.
