Hotel Grand Side is intended for more individualistic tourists on the lookout for a cool and quiet place. The all-inclusive option will not stop them, however, from diving into the huge shopping centre that is the town of Side.

    Location 10.0 /10

    Hotel Grand Side is located on Antalya's East coast, in the village of KumkŲy, 3 mi from Side's centre. Allow an hour and a half to reach the airport, 40 mi from the hotel. Driving to the hotel is no easy task when you know that there is a jungle of hotels in the area and that they are not clearly indicated either.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    Despite the decoration being in-keeping with the theme of the hotel (faded blue carpets and bed covers), the rooms remain a little dull with their wooden furniture and beige walls. Therefore, favour those with a view of the sea. Their size is reasonable (237 sq ft), as are their amenities (central air-conditioning, a TV, a (payable) safe, a telephone, a mini-bar). The beds are separate and it is possible for four people to sleep in one room (request a room with bunk beds). The bathrooms are ordinary and include a bathtub, a hair-dryer and some hospitality products (plus a telephone). If you come as a family, you will be accommodated on the ground floor with a terrace garden, which allows the children to have direct access to the swimming pools and the beach. We wish, however, that the layout were more practical - the four separate beds are all cramped in to the same place, with one bathroom only.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    This hotel first appears as a large block of concrete, painted a dark-sand colour and stuck at the end of an alley. Open in 1989 and renovated seven years later, the four-storey building is in an L shape. The effort made on the interior design improves the hotel as a whole, with its discreet but apt 'nautical' theme. In the entrance hall, visitors tread upon a compass rose, before walking on a carpet scattered with anchors on the upper floors. Various framed rope knots brighten up the walls of the slightly too dark corridors. The waiters are not forgotten, with their white and blue striped sailors' tops. As far as the communal areas are concerned (the bar and the lobby's reading area), dark parquet and some simple but chic leather armchairs complement the cosy atmosphere of the Grand Side. Something to take into account; other than the large gym, there is a beautiful marble Turkish bath and a swimming pool, which is heated in the winter, as well as four pretty massage booths which give directly on to the garden.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The hotel has two ŗ la carte restaurants as well as a main restaurant in which the meals, varied and fresh, are presented on buffets in the shape of boats. It is very pleasant to take your meals on the terrace, as it has an unobstructed view of the shaded garden and the sea in the background. The cuisine is typical in the sense that it consists of local dishes prepared with an international touch. Why not try the beach bar (well shaded under palm trees) where, although the service is a little slow, the fresh and grilled fish is a delight for the palate.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    You can be on the beach within less than five minutes (at the pace of a stroll, and following a gentle slope from your room), where you can sunbathe on some very fine sand. You will find all the necessary equipment (deck chairs and tables protected from the sun by long blue awnings; showers and a beach bar a mere stone's throw away). The atmosphere is also very relaxed. Only the nearby hotels, on either side of the Grand Side, and their music played on loudspeakers, risk disrupting the prevailing peace and quiet.

    To know

    Open from April to November, the Grand Side attracts many European guests, most of whom (approximately 80%) are German. Whether it's thirtysomethings on their summer holiday (usually families) or (pre)retired people in the low season, all of them hope to spend a relaxing holiday, without it being boring of course. Dance floor lovers will have to leave the hotel in order to find a night club, the nearest one is about 1,640 ft away. If you enjoy a gentle breaststroke, don't worry, the swimming pool with slides is isolated from the main swimming pool.

      You will better discern the meaning of the word 'Grand' once you have stepped into the Prestige Hotel. The reception may indeed serve as a great advertisement for the hotel, but this is definitely not the case as far as the rest of the establishment is concerned. This hotel is better adapted for couples than families because of its layout, as it turns out to be quite simple after all.

      The Club Grand Aqua, as its name suggests, is noteworthy for its water-based facilities, which really are as original as they are enjoyable. The hotel itself stands on a 6,9 acre site on the seafront and consists of six buildings made up of small ochre-coloured villas, all right at the water's edge. You might even be lucky enough to have one of the rooms where you can dive straight into the swimming pool from your terrace, and as if that weren't enough, guests at the Grand Aqua also have free access to the huge water park and swimming pools of the neighbouring Grand Side club. Families will absolutely love it here!
