Club Turban and its 454 rooms are nestled in pine-tree covered grounds. Guests enter a grand lobby with high ceilings and large windows; rustic light fittings and ornate antiques add character to the room. The buffet restaurant is in the same building as the lobby (see Food and Drink), with tables that spill out on to an outdoor terrace. Club Turban is fantastic for families, the proof: a large mini club with several activities rooms, children's wading pool and outdoor playground under the pine trees. Apart from the varied programme of activities and sports games on offer by the in-house animation team, the hotel also boasts tennis and beach volleyball for the athletic guests.
At the heart of the resort are the main swimming pool and amphitheatre (there's nightly entertainment). The main pool is the hub of activities and animation. The spacious pool deck is covered in sun loungers (we're told there are more sun loungers than guests so no fighting for one!) There is also a baby pool, changing cabins and a pool bar nearby, everything only a few convenient steps away.
Club Turban also boasts a decent health and wellbeing facility with well-lit fitness room, sauna with panoramic window, huge Turkish bath, massage rooms and indoor swimming pool heated at 26°C (although think about bringing a swimming cap otherwise you'll have to buy one there!). For those who really want to get away from it all, there's a 'relax pool' situated far away from the activity of the main pool for guests over the age of 14 only. We really appreciated the smart planning of Club Turban: for example, the 'relax pool' placed far away from the busy main pool (some resorts throw everything together in the one place), or the kids' club in its own area so as not to disturb anyone. Even the aqua park with waterslides is situated far from the relaxation areas so that kids can splash about and not hassle any adult guests.
