Amy Adejokun Section editor

Built over 20 years ago, the Ephesia took over the former Pine Beach Club in 2007. Designed in the form of a small village, with natural charm emanating from the various facilities, this hotel on the Turkish coast has everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. Having been renovated in 2010, the hotel now boasts brand new facilities. The large number of guest rooms it houses is far from a handicap, as the communal areas are spacious and well-proportioned. This is also the ideal place for a family holiday, with comfortable rooms and a children's club.

    Location 9.06 /10

    The Ephesia is a seafront establishment located some 3 mi south of Kusadasi, with the town centre barely a 10 minute drive away! Izmir airport is just over 43 mi away, with a transfer time of around an hour and fifteen minutes by car.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The 405 spacious guest rooms are housed in two two-storey buildings and range from standard rooms to family rooms, all of which feature pleasant coloured decor in shades of cream and light blue. A small step leads down to the lounge area, which can accommodate an additional bed, whilst a large picture window leads out to the balcony, itself furnished with a table and two chairs. The whole place feels very new and is maintained to a high standard. The fabrics used in the decor, from the bedspread to the curtains, all go together pleasantly well. Having said that, the bathrooms could do with a bit of a makeover, as the tiled floors have certainly had their day. It's also worth noting that the toilet is separate. The amenities include air conditioning and a television, and room service is available during the daytime.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    On arrival at reception, you'll have no idea as to the size of the Ephesia. The reception desk itself is located outside and isn't very large, but the staff are certainly very efficient. The facilities have been designed to ensure that no one feels cramped. Indeed, you'll have no problems finding a deck chair around one of the hotel's 4 swimming pools! Having said that, the main rectangular pool is rather lacking in the charm department, but this is compensated for to a degree by the lively (and sometimes too catchy) music playing on the loudspeakers. Wherever you are in the hotel, you'll have breathtaking views of the sea. When it was last renovated, the Ephesia took the opportunity to build a new, spacious and well-equipped children's club. The youngest guests will undoubtedly enjoy the water slides in one of the pools. The hotel has also built a lovely health and fitness centre complete with high quality equipment and massage rooms, where guests can choose from the large selection of treatments on offer.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    You'd be hard-pushed to find a larger terrace than the bright and airy one in the Ephesia's main restaurant, the Sunset. Affording breathtaking views out to sea, this is a great place to enjoy your meal. Having said that, the tables inside the dining room are arranged pretty close together. All 3 meals are served as a buffet here, but the U-shaped stations are not always very easy to get to. In terms of the cuisine itself, you'll find a rather international selection of dishes with a few local specialities thrown in. If you're staying here in July or August, you'll also be able to dine at the hotel's la carte restaurant, which serves a variety of Italian and fish specialities. Given the limited capacity, though, it is advisable to book a table in advance.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    With some 15.5 mi of coastline, the Ephesia could hardly find a better seafront location, although the beach only runs on one side of the hotel. The sand here is fine but you will find quite a few rocks and plenty of seaweed in the water, and the surroundings can be a little cramped given the capacity of the hotel. Plastic deck chairs are arranged in a row along the shoreline. The water is fairly clear and the slope is rather shallow. There is also a club nearby offering all sorts of water sports.

    To know

    As with most of the other hotels in the region, the Ephesia is open during the summer season from April to October.

      The Fantasia, with its modern appearance, lacks authenticity. But it is a nice setting by the sea with several facilities: beautiful pools, a cinema and a few activities. The rooms are comfortable and services are of a high quality.

      If you're looking for somewhere to relax in peaceful surroundings, you've come to the right place! The Ephesus Boutique Hotel stands on the plains of Kusadasi and is really more like a guesthouse than an actual hotel, which is what makes it so utterly charming! This little house in the countryside will help even the most stressed of guests relax and thoroughly recharge their batteries. Your wake-up call will depend on the cockerel living next door!

      The Vera Santa Marina is admittedly short on facilities, but it does have the advantage of a location not far from Kusadasi town centre. It is a small hotel offering a good level of comfort and an all-inclusive formula. As for the rooms, no need for any jealousy, because they are all in the same standard category. However, interior design is clearly not the strong suit of this establishment...

      The inscription 'Boutique Hotel' is displayed on the facade of the Palm Hotel, but it is actually far from it. There isn't one element inside the hotel that justifies this designation. Its major asset simply resides in its central location in Kusadasi, close to the town marina. Although the hotel has no real charm, it can nevertheless boast a swimming pool and relaxation facilities that include a hammam and a massage room.

      The Sealight is popular with both couples and families, and is considered to be among the more upmarket establishments in the region, largely thanks to the quality of its facilities. However, its lack of charm can leave you indifferent. While its location on a rocky outcrop gives it superb sea views, the disadvantage of this is the many stairs that must be tackled on the way to the beach. Thanks to the all-inclusive package, you can save your money for any souvenirs you wish to take home!

      From the outside, this massive building is far from what one would expect from a seaside establishment. Despite well-kept facilities, the Batihan Beach Resort cruelly lacks charm. However, its mainly Dutch, Belgian and English clientele doesn't seem to mind. The rooms are unoriginal but provide a perfectly decent level of comfort. Furthermore, the hotel is immediately next to a beautiful beach you access by simply crossing the promenade.
