Open from April to October, the Maxima Paradise Resort is a large complex with many sport and leisure facilities. Families will have everything they need to keep busy, given the amount of activities they can do here. Everything is very well-maintained and the quality of the equipment is very good. However, the buildings may be modern but they lack a little charm.

This resort is found just under two miles away from the small town of Özdere but there are no shops in the vicinity. A large flag signals the entrance to the hotel from the coastal road. It takes about 45 minutes to reach it from the airport.
The 215 guest rooms are spread out among several buildings that are more or less 5 storeys high. Three categories are available: standard, family and suite. Those in the standard category are of an average size. The colours used in them are mainly grey and white. The contemporary decor is quite minimalist. The large cosy bed suggests that you will sleep well here. Outside, every room has a balcony where you can listen to the birds singing. Incidentally, these birds like this spot so much that they have built their nests all over the place. This is great for the music aspect but not for the state of the ground, which doesn't stay clean for very long. The bathroom is equipped with a shower and a toilet. As for the amenities, you'll have no cause for complaint, with a television, a safe, a mini-bar and room service available 24/7. The family rooms are twice the size of the standards and some of them even have a kitchen.
Looking at it from the outside, the Maxima Paradise Resort is a huge white building built on several levels that look like steps. Two automatic doors open onto a lobby with a contemporary decor. The atmosphere is quite refined. There is a circular bench seat in the middle, between the reception desk and lounge area, which is decorated with a fireplace. The lobby opens out onto the hotel's large main swimming pool facing the sea. White plastic deckchairs have been placed all around it. This area is reserved for relaxing; activities are held at the second pool where the noise level of the music can be quite loud. This pool was built lengthwise stretching towards the sea. Nearby is another pool where children can have fun on the many waterslides.
The Maxima Paradise's main restaurant is located in a large room devoid of any charm. An effort has been made in the presentation of the tables, though, which are lined up next to one another. There is a terrace where you can eat outdoors but most of the tables and chairs are inside. During peak periods, the dining room quickly becomes very noisy. All three meals of the day are served as a buffet. The cuisine is mostly international, as is the case for one of the two ŕ la carte restaurants that is found outside. The second ŕ la carte restaurant is inside near the main swimming pool.
Despite its location on the seafront, it is not possible to go swimming just anywhere. Part of the sea is hard to reach and covered in algae. To extend the area for relaxing, the hotel has installed a wooden solarium facing the sea. The part where you can go swimming is at the foot of the rooms. Unfortunately, the beach is small and there is a very limited amount of deckchairs. There is sand along the edge of the water but once you're in it you'll feel stones beneath your feet. To avoid this problem, the hotel has had a dock installed. It is possible to do a wide variety of activities at the water sports club. However, there is an extra charge for the motorised sports.
The hotel operates on an all-inclusive formula. This even includes a free Wi-Fi connection, which is available just about everywhere in the establishment.
