    Location 10.0 /10

    On the seashore, 5 miles from the very lively seaside resort of Kusadasi. To reach the hotel from Izmir airport, located 30 miles away, allow 30 hour.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The rooms in the main building of the hotel are large and comfortable, in grey and pink colours. They overlook the sea and have a large balcony, bathroom with bath and hairdryer, telephone, another telephone, a minibar, a safe (extra charge), satellite TV (lots of channels) and an adjustable air conditioning system. In the white and blue bungalows, the rooms recreate Mediterranean style. They are less comfortable than the bungalows and do not overlook the sea. tiling, shower room and bunkbeds in the children's rooms.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Built in 1991 and renovated in 2000, the Ephesus Princess is a large seaside complex belonging to the Princess hotel chain, which has 9 hotels in Turkey. It was built next to a mountain at the far end of Pamucak beach, one of the most beautiful natural beaches in the region, which has been preserved thanks to the marshes which limit construction. It has a main building (with 144 superior rooms) and 208 bungalows for a total capacity of 1,300 people. With its Disney kids club, large pool, sports equipment, aquapark, cinema, heliport, panoramic lifts and sound-system amphitheatre, this is the American dream (or nightmare, it depends).

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    2 main restaurants and several bars and pubs are housed within the complex. There is international and Turkish cuisine as well as seafood served in a variety of settings, and candlelit dinners with views over the Aegean Sea.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The hotel is on Pamucak beach, the most beautiful in the region, which extends over 1 mile of fine, clean sand. The sea is rather shallow (you have to walk 655 ft before being able to swim) and, in some places, there is a concrete border. Given the size of the complex and its perched location, access can be a bit difficult. A Beach-Express (a sort of little shuttle) drops you in the creek where there is a large private pontoon. The facilities include parasols, loungers, showers and everything you would expect in terms of watersports equipment. A bar and a fish restaurant (open from 15 July to 30 August) are also available.

    To know

    Open year-round. The hotel offers and all-inclusive package. During our stay we could not access the restaurants. We hesitantly judged them as being average, which we think lowered the overall rating.
