SENTIDO Lykia Resort & Spa Hotel Video
We visit the hotel in september, this year and was a great holiday. The location is fabulous, the architecture of construction is special, everything is relax and tranquility. Great advantage for this resort is being an adults-only !
The room are clean and confortable.
The staff is very kind and helpful everywhere.
Tha dining place is clean and stylish and the atmosfere is great. Many thanks especially for Engine (from Marmara saloon) and Salima, always very friendly and cheerful.
Everywhere you can feel the traditional Turkish hospitality!
The huge minus is about the wifi in the resort, which is very poor and discontinued.(this is unacceptable for this times, when the technology must be very accesible).
This hotel offers a truly home from home feel. I have visited many hotels in Turkey and I have to say this hotel offered the best overall feeling that we had been pampered and indulged in a five star hotel. The rooms are large and spacious and everything you require is provided.
The setting and grounds are truly stunning.
The staff are the epitome of customer service, warm, welcoming and nothing is too much trouble.
The food... wow!
The cocktails.. wow,wow!
You may visit other hotels with fancier reception areas, or that offer free al a carte restaurants, but one thing is for sure, you will not visit another another hotel which leaves you feeling like you have totally indulged all of your senses.
3rd time here and still awesome,May not be 5 star in some people’s eyes,however the staff are second to none,my only slight gripe about them is the fact there is only one television at the main pool bar and the staff there will only show what they want on.The evening entertainment needs looking into,the golden oldies night was brill and Elvis steals the whole week,not a dry eye anywhere.Apart from that the place is paradise.Never have I seen staff so happy in their work,The food is fantastic too and plenty to choose from.If you venture into town the taxis vary in price so agree one before you go,also if you venture into a shop called the Office that does trainers,shoes etc watch what you buy as one of our party got ripped off there and only found out when he got back home.Apart from that a truly great holiday and will be back next year.
Missed out a year and back again at Sentido Lykia Resort. Still a great hotel with fantastic staff and service, we found everybody to be so friendly and helpful. We have stayed at many hotels in Turkey and the staff at Sentido Lykia are just the best. We are two separate couples and had asked for two rooms close together on a high floor No problem. The hotel badges itself as 5 star however we would say a good 4 star the pool loungers were changed two years ago to some cheap version without any removable cushions, OMG they are so uncomfortable and dangerous, please please change them. A la cart should be waiter service and not serve yourself as in the "A La Cart" Turkish restaurant, sitting outside on wooden benches with no table cloths and serving yourself is not A La Cart. We visited the Blue Buda and again the food was faultless with very good attentive waiters however the table was very sticky with what seemed like a build up of sun tan lotion that you could scrape off with your nails every one of our table mats had at least two large chips in them, Not A La Cart Standard.
These are minor points but need to be addressed to take the hotel to the next level, we had a great holiday at a great hotel with very good service from all the staff, if you haven't visited the region or this hotel then you are missing out.
The ideal hotel
We have visited this hotel frequently over the past 20 years.
We are frequent travelers and use this hotel as a benchmark of quality.
The scenery, staff, quality of food and drinks at the Sentido Lykia are second to none.
The rooms are spacious and offer every comfort you will require, and like all other area of the hotel, they are immaculately clean. There are plenty of sunloungers around the pools and beaches; gyms and a diverse range of activities are available.
What makes this hotel really stand head and shoulders above any other hotel I have visited is its soul. Management that is customer and staff driven. Staff that actually happy. They care, and want to make sure you have the very best holiday and that you are not just another tourist through their doors, you are made to feel like family.
Stayed here for a week in May. We found the overalls experience to be excellent. Rooms are super comfortable and very spacious, the free mini bar is a nice touch and the mood lighting is pretty cool. The pool decks are excellent and very relaxing and even though the hotel was full, it was always possible to find sun beds. Food was a real high point and we were blown away by the quality, and variety. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and really made us feel very welcome. The town is just a short taxi ride away and there are ample shops and of course the stunning beach. We loved our stay and will certainly return at some point in the future.
Best hotel experience
We went there for a 1 week vacation. It is a real 16 plus hotel, and you can feel the difference at the sea, and at the restaurant. Although it was high season, and crowded, we did not feel it. The food and the beverages was great. The only thing I can criticise can be the sea. Because it was never smooth enough to swim.
Missing it already and will certainly be returning!!!!!
This was a present to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary from my hubby. Loved this resort. No faults with our visit what so ever only not long enough. Everyone was very helpful, Mehmet who looked after us every morning and lunch was the best. Had everything set at our table once he saw us enter the dining room.Thanks have to go to him. We arrived in the early hours and we were directed on where to get a little something to eat. All the workers are so happy and happy to help. Would definitely recommend buying some sea shoes as the beach was rough on my feet . Cannot fault this place at all. Was our first holiday alone and such a lovely place, views, food and drinks all aplenty. The place was spotless. Evening entertainment was good for us. We ventured in the family side in the early evenings to watch the Sun set and walk around. Was lovely to just nip across as and when you wanted.
Fantastic beautiful varied hotel that has everything you could want with lovely friendly staff
Absolutely wonderful hotel. My husband and I can be bit snobby when it comes to an all inclusive resort like this, but it was seriously great. It isn't fancy at all, so if you want 5 star luxury then its not necessarily the right place for you, but it is beautiful and interesting and has so much going on - and yet you can relax and do absolutely nothing and be quite happy. We didn't leave the hotel all week and had absolutely no need to. I would DEFINITELY recommend staying on the Sentido side rather than the liberty side if you have no children in tow, but its fantastic to be able to use both hotels.
We wanted to be healthy, and found this place to be incredible for it - you could stay here and use it as a fitness retreat if you wanted to! We did at least 2 exercise classes every day! On the Sentido side some of them are on a wooden platform in the woods, and on the liberty side it has a sea view. The instructors are as good as any London gym - Roxy in particular was just brilliant. Friendly but worked us hard! Thank you so much Roxy - you are amazing and made our holiday to be honest! Great to leave a holiday feeling good about yourself! The gym is better on the Liberty side than the Sentido side though strangely, and Hakan in there is very nice.
The food is really really great. The kitchen staff obviously work very hard and are proud of it. there is always variety and healthy delicious things. And the puddings!!! There is lots of choice to sit inside or outside (bit too hot outside for lunch for us, but SUCH a gorgeous view out there!) Our regular waiter Emirhan and waitress Pinar were incredibly welcoming and kind every single day.
Also the man who chops the fruit and makes the smoothies in the mornings is lovely! and the woman who does the orange juice!
The wine is delicious and keeps being topped up!
There are lots of different pools depending on what you prefer. The 16+ one on the Liberty side is probably the nicest. But there are so many cool areas you can lounge - the beach on the Sentido side has lovely shaded spots with gorgeous sea views, and pontoons that you can get into the sea from. There are even lovely little private loungers in the woods.
The entertainment team obviously work SO hard and are SO sweet. Maria in particular. We don't normally go to the shows on holiday, but we walked past the main theatre on Sunday night and stumbled across the most AMAZING acrobats, from kenya I believe. They were honestly world class.
Only small criticism would be that the Sentido side is mean to be adults only, but there were definitely teenagers there. They weren't trouble but I would have preferred them not to be there as they were messing about on inflatables loudly. The same in the 16+ pool in the Liberty hotel, but not a massive problem,
Also the pictures on the walls in the bedrooms should be of beautiful Turkey not fake Caribbean views!
The main restaurant in the Liberty hotel is bit intense- in that there are SO many people in there, and lots of confused children trying to decide what to eat/where their table is. But I suppose that cant be helped really. The Sentido side is so nice and calm so we were spoilt I think!
We also went to the Pinara Turkish restaurant one night as it was included with our Thomas Cook deal, and that was so worth it! Loads of fun and a bit different for the evening. Im sure all the other Al a Cartes are great too.
Weirdly, the entrance and the front desk and staff are perhaps the thing that let it down a tiny bit, so please don't be put off by them if you go. This hotel is fab and I would definitely go back.
13th Visit!! Amazing again!!
Well, where do I start.. Amazing, Fantastic, Can’t wait to return!! We have just turned after our 13th Visit, and I am still in mourning, I actually nearly cried when I left Saying goodbye breaks my heart, and I’m missing it everyday
Over the 13 years, we have seen some huge improvements since Liberty took over, and what a brilliant job, it’s just getting even better. The amount of food on offer is rather overwhelming, so much to choose from. Now the best it, the service. Turgut and Ulas run the breakfast and lunch shifts like clock work. They work so well together as a team, they never stop working, constantly serving us all the time. These guys are amazing, the place wouldn’t be the same without them, and knowing when we walk in on day 1, with them smiling to welcome us back is so nice and very kind.
The rooms are large, the bed mattress is so deep, it’s like princess and the pea. The rooms are always cleaned daily with fresh towels.
The pools are cleaned regularly with regular testing which is nice to see.
If I was to recommend anything, which I did mention last year in my review, please Liberty, can you put some security on the gates and do a check guests. We did again, see under 16’s in the sentido side, we think someone was letting them in through the gates, and also people using the sentido side from the family side. I don’t think anyone would mind showing security the room cards and numbers so stop this happening as Sentido guests have paid much more to be in adult only.
I literally could go on and on, so I will end this with, we miss you all, and yes we have already booked for 2019, so see you guys next June!!!
The views are fantastic, the food diverse and high standards kept. So many different areas to go within the resort. A perfect place to relax and go for sporting activities also. Staff all highly trained and I will return.
Cannot wait to come back!! 5 star all the way!
I have just got back from a weeks holiday at the Sentido Lykia Resort and also my first time in Turkey and what can I say, it was unbelievable! I have never met such nice staff members that will do anything and everything to ensure that you have the best time possible! Ekrem in the evening and Mehmet in the morning/lunch were our favourite waiters even taught us a bit of Turkish whilst we were there! The restaurant hostess both during the day and the evening were always there to welcome you in with a big smile on their faces! The entertainment team what can I say, they honestly make your day, Hiko, Ella, Ozzy, Mustafa in the evenings bring such a great vibe to the hotel and ensure that you have a great evening! They are more than happy to sit with you and talk to you and they make sure that they get to know the guests which just makes it a bit more personal! A great laugh and is definitely not the same without them, unfortunately it was Monday the evening we left and you could tell the difference when they were there and when they weren’t! The bar staff in the evening are so happy and over the days they get to know guests personal orders and in the end didn’t have to end up asking they just knew!
The hotel itself is lovely, the pools are always so clean, the room was so much better than we ever expected it to be. So much greenery with the woods and even on the hot days you still have places that are you are able to cool down! Overall, an amazing experience and cannot wait to come back hopefully before the end of the season and do it all over again!
My family of 4 adults stayed here end of June - beginning of July. It is a really relaxing resort. The rooms were spacious with a massive bed and a good bathroom with great walk in shower, there’s plenty of toiletries so you don’t really need to pack these. Lots of wardrobe space and well stocked mini fridge. The restaurant was very good and plenty of choice, there was always something for everyone. Waiters/waitresses all lovely and efficient . It would be nice to have availability for more light snacks which we have had at another hotel in turkey the snack bar in the portofino restaurant is open 3 -5pm but actually provides a meal. Swimming pools and beach are wonderful it would be nice to have sand as the shingle is more like gravel (sorry to say) there is plenty of beach towels which you can constantly change and the self service drinks near the bar are excellent. The resort is in a fantastic location away from main Olu Deniz which is busy but it’s easy to get a cab the scenery around the hotel is amazing looking out at the forest it’s spectacular. There’s also lots of sun loungers mingled under trees which is a lovely break away from the heat. The boat trip from the hotel is ok nice day out but have been on much better trips from fethiye. trip to Olu Deniz lagoon also ok but not up to expectations as I thought it would be, abit commercialised sadly.
Out of this world!
We are coming back to Sentido Lykia in July! This will be our 3rd time with them! From the rooms to the location and the quality of service, everything is Out of this world. So much thought is put into everything. The Beach bar is one of our favourite places to visit after a day on the private beach. Frozen towels are given out and are just what you need to cool down with your mojito! If you are feeling active you can do almost any sport from golf, tennis, or relax with a yoga class! A romantic,friendly,tranquil, fun place to relax and unwind! 2 weeks isn’t enough to try everything.
