Good, but not excellent
Pro; Good gym, nice spa facilities, fantastic guest services and extremely wonderful concierge, Con; Poor reception service when busy, no smart tv (Netflix, etc), telephone service is inadequate, quality food needs an overhaul for a 5 star establishment. Light system is awful to use. Looks fancy, but terrible and needs changing asap - especially if in a room with lounge

10/10 Exceptional

The hotel design and looks is awesome. Upscale lobby area. I loved the convenience of having a grill restaurant and cafe close to the outdoor pool. I am a big cigar smoker and I loved the fact you can smoke by the pool area. The staff are all very humble and friendly and welcoming. Had great service from all of the butlers in the lobby especially their manager (Emre). Overall I totally recommend staying in this hotel.

8/10 Very good

A beautiful hotel with the impressive modern look,with polite and helpful staff, but unfortunately, only few of them speaks English - so it is no easy to communicate with most of them. First of all I want to praise and give a special gratitude to the Ms. Azhar Aindidinova the wonderful Guest Relation Officer of the Hotel. She was always available and ready to help with any complains and request. Please convey my gratitude and impressions about her to the Hotel management - she deserve to be awarded for her work. As I said, other stuff (room service, cleaning people...) were polite as well, but the problem is language - even in the restaurant they do not understand the basic (lemonade or Turkish coffee without sugar or sparkling water). Staff definitely need additional trainings because - for example, we had a great suite with large and wonderful bath with a TV inside (upgraded bc. they didn't provide us selected room when we arrived first night -we are also very grateful to the reception for this), but - the cleaning stuff would pick up 3 towels for bathing ( it was 3 of us), and leave it only 1 or 2 new - so we have to call and wait for little bit to long, to bring it - if we were not lucky enough to find them on our floor. Also I think it should be eco friendly practice - if guest don't request - do not change all towels every day. Likewise, there are few other things that I've notice, regarding of cleanliness - like first bathroom that we got, upholstery etc...
