The Surmeli Efes, located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the region, has all the activities you would expect from a modern hotel. However, it could do with some renovation.

    Location 10.0 /10

    On the bay of Selcuk, 5 miles north of Kusadasi and 34 miles from Izmir airport (allow 45 minutes for the transfer).

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The rooms are very large and comfortable. They have a bathroom with bath and hairdryer, telephone, another telephone, satellite television, a radio, a safe (extra charge), a minibar and an adjustable air conditioning system. Room service can serve meals 24 h a day.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 1998, the Surmeli is apparently renovated every year. The complex seemed a little fusty however, and the equipment was in a poor state when we were rating it. The hotel has 463 rooms set in a modern 12-storey building in futuristic shapes, and 4 3-storey blocks containing the family rooms. With the surrounding buildings, the whole complex is an eyesore on the beach of Pamucak, which itself is actually one of the most beautiful in the region (relatively speaking) and which has been preserved thanks to the marshes that limit construction. The interior decor is very impersonal, not to say depressing (the dark and noisy lobby-shopping centre is not very welcoming). Some amenities, such as the amphitheatre-pool and the pools in general, the large hammam, the panoramic terrace on the top floor, and the multiple conference rooms, improve the standard of this old complex that lacks charm.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    Meals are served as a buffet in an airy restaurant with outside terrace close to the pools. The dishes vary between international and local specialities.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The large private beach is part of that of Pamucak, which stretches over 1 mile and has fine clean sand - it is one of the most beautiful in the region. The problem is that the water is rather shallow (you have to walk 655 ft before you can swim) and the water has a lot of seaweed; for this hotel, half the view is blocked by other buildings. The facilities include loungers and parasols. Watersports available from May to November.

    To know

    Open all year. The clientele tends to be older, from Northern Europe.
