While the range of amenities like pools and dining options are popular, some visitors express concerns about the value, pointing to overpriced services and maintenance issues in rooms. Although the cleanliness of general areas receives praise, there are mixed reviews about room upkeep.

Myself and my family arrived at the hotel around 1am and had our temperature checked before entering..
Hotel lobby staff were very friendly and put us at ease immediately.

We were shown to our room by a bell boy and was pleasantly surprised by the layout as it had two single beds downstairs and a double bed upstairs so that it felt spacious enough for a family of 4.

There were sandwiches in the main food hall so we didn’t go hungry even though it was early hours.

Now.. myself and my family had been worried after reading some recent reviews regarding the hotel but honestly had nothing to worry about!!

The food is plentiful and we always found it good quality with plenty of choice for ourselves and two teenage children.. plenty of places to eat and the beach bar and food is fab! There is something for everyone from plain food like pizza burgers and chips if fussy to authentic cuisine if you like to try something new!!

The coffee and doughnut cafe is great and we will miss our iced mochas each morning!

The hotel staff are fabulous very friendly and work so hard to keep the hotel in pristine condition.. we were very impressed in the cleanliness all around.

All staff wear masks arms there is plenty of hand sanitizer around the large hotel.
Cutlery is all packaged when eating also.

WiFi is great throughout hotel and beach which is a massive bonus with two teenagers!!

Beach is a little rocky in and out but you can always use the steps on the jetty..

A massive thank you to Hussain and the beach lads for making it fun for us doing the water sports.. top guys👌🏽

A final big thank you to the pool bar lads Mehmetcan.. and his two friends who were sooo friendly.. these guys work super long hours but always serve with a smile 😊

Water park area is also renovated from original photos with new slides..

I will agree with previous comments from reviews that the hotel is primarily Russian and polish guests and we did find them quite rude and ignorant but this didn’t phase us or effect our holiday and we will definitely return to Crystal Admiral..

At first as the hotel just opened food was cold and staff seemed to be serving People from their own culture first and there were lots of People pushing in at the food counters and being served first. Myself and Husband were polite to the customers and remind them there was a queue. some customers had no respect for the staff who were very helpful and polite. The food improved after speaking to some of the management and guest relations and we started to enjoy more variety. Covid safety measures were excellent and hand gels and signs were everywhere also pool area tidied and toilet cleaned all the time staff wore masks. The rooms very basic but comfortable. Snack bar was very good very fresh food enjoyable and cake shops delicious. Pools were cleaned and very spacious easy to gt into and not too crowed. the beach was pebbly and had to go under an underpass but beach bar was fine with drinks and snacks. The guest relations were very helpful and were willing to listen to any bodies complaints and put things right and were very polite and helpful. One lift was constantly breaking down making it difficult to get it as often lifts were full especially at mealtimes. . Would not have he hotel as a 5 Star as the bathroom needed updating and fittings old. and the lifts were needed cleaning more and updating . Entertainment music and shows children entertainment. Would come back to this hotel in the future

it’s 31degrees with a very nice breeze it’s our first time in turkey and I’ve read many reviews so I lowered my expectation as long as you remember 5* in Turkey isn’t the same as 5* in England you will be fine. I’d say in comparison to English star ratings that this hotel quality is 3 but because of facilities a low 4. Within 5 minutes of leaving my room a man tried to sell me spa visit which I thought was very expensive!

It cost us 660try via taxi (around £67) to get from Antalya airport to here which is a lot of money but we were very tired and didn’t arrange transfers.

Our room is very very basic, even travel lodge could beat it ‘as standard.’
sipping cocktails by the pool isn’t what you imagine, they’re more like whetherspoons cocktails and certainly not 5*. I ordered a gin& tonic but the tonic was flat. There is no tea & coffee making facilities in your room so if you’re an avid coffee/tea drinker keep this in mind. There is bottles of full sugar drinks in the minibar free but as we only drink sugar free it’s not ideal.

It’s very empty but we have found people very friendly, especially as I am a mother of three teenage daughters (14 & 18) my eldest gets a lot of attention as English dress is very revealing in comparison to European.

We checked in at 10am despite check in being at 3pm so we are very happy they allowed us to check in early. We have spoken to Turkish people who are on holiday and they say the food here is very bad and suggested if we want to sample real Turkish food then we should eat out.

Also a lot of your English apps like Netflix will not work, I cannot even get English subtitles programs here on YouTube. So if you want to watch programs download them in England!!

There is wifi in your room, I haven’t visited the beach yet but apparently there is a tunnel so you don’t have to cross the road. I have been told the sea temperature is 24, the pool is not heated but it is so hot you could jump in anyway!

I hope I have been helpful and the bar have given me so many drinks I hope I make sense!

On arrival at the hotel, at midnight, our luggage was disinfected and our temperatures were checked. Our names where not on the system for some reason so we had to pay £230 to stay that night as it could not be fixed until the following morning. We did get a free upgrade and full refund the following day.

FOOD is terrible, the food is cold, undercooked and tasteless. Our diet consisted of chips and crossiants.This hotel only caters for the Russians. There is set times for meals depending on what colour of wrist band you have on. The first week was fine regarding seating but hotel is mostly full now so you cannot get a seat.
We had to pay between 30 to 50 euros in a taxi to go out and get food as hotel is in the middle of nowhere. We complained to guest relations, got 2 free nights in the A la carte restaurant but again it was the same menu. Also got free breakfast in bed, but the eggs where not cooked properly, toast like cardboard and cold again.

ANIMATION made our holiday. Yusuf, Mert and Fatih were brilliant, they were hard working, always stopped for a chat with a smile. Did not force you to join in with activities. There English was fantastic. Thankyou guys you are the best. We went to one show at night but did not feel safe leaving the theatre due to covid, as it was not monitored with safe social distancing.

COVID The hotel is doing what it can with regards to covid. Markings clearly marked on the floor regarding social distancing. Hand sanitizer is everywhere in the hotel, face masks handed out if needed. All cutlery etc is sealed in a polythene bag and alcohol wipes handed out with every meal. All tables are disinfected after every meal. On our second week, we did find that in the main restaurant it was impossible for social distancing as they were letting to many people in.
Staff throughout hotel have been brilliant, very hard working although I think the management could have helped out a little more instead of standing barking orders to the staff, at times I found it uncomfortable.

I will return to Turkey but not to this Hotel.

Arrived at the resort late at night for our 7 day holiday and was met by a nice man at the door who took us through to the reception to book in. After booking in he took us up to our family room which was on the 6th Floor very high up with a balcony that was not suitable for a 6 year old and a 2 year old so we had to keep it closed the whole time we were there. The room it self was not a great room very outdated but was spacious with a bath and shower which was good. The fridges were stocked well and refilled everyday, along with a nice clean and new sheets.

The staff were not really friendly, except for the cake shop which was staffed by friendly staff. The food was not nice at all and was luke warm most of the time and not much choice, the resort is mainly 95% Russians and most of them were very rude.
The kids pool was good with lots of slides and a pirate themed water park, the adult slides were good and the beach was nice. It didnt take long to get to the beach through a small tunnel. There was a great park for the younger children which my 6 year old and 2 year old really enjoyed everyday. The resort does not cater well for the UK or English speakers and mainly caters for the Russians.

All the staff wore masks at all times but no one else did and social distancing was none existent. Nobody cared at all.

We will not be coming back or any other Crystal resorts.
I would not recommend coming here unless you are Russians, can speak Russian and like Russian food.

Thanks

We had a 2 week holiday here in September. The hotel itself is well clean and well maintained. The staff serving were friendly.

The food however is horrible, I don’t know how they manage it but whoever cooks there manages to dry out any meat dish even when cooked in a sauce. They served shrimp one day and it tasted like it was boiled in salt. They don’t change the menu, it’s basically the same thing every day and the a la carte restaurants just seem to serve the same thing that’s in the main restaurant.

The hotel was quiet the first week, it was really busy the second week. Not very good for covid considering everyone was rammed into the food hall at once. Russians don’t seem to understand the concept of queuing as well and will just barge in front of people and swear at them or threaten them if they kick up a fuss, the hotel hasn’t done anything to mitigate this and just let’s it happen. So the food hall is complete chaos at meal times and we just started avoiding it.

If you want a sun lounger get to the pool early, otherwise you won’t get one and even though they have a huge stack of them behind the water slides they still didn’t put any extra out after repeated requests to do so.

Be careful when booking an activity on the beach, we paid €100 to do parasailing and when we got back found out it was only supposed to be €80 so complained and got the difference back.

Basically this place is not a 5 star hotel, there are better places to go for the same or less money. We’ll probably avoid all hotels from this chain in the future.

Having 7 years experience with hotel resorts in Turkey Crystal Admiral is to be rated 10/10 for their excellence in customer service (best service ever). Every single staff member is exceptionally polite and proffesional from the reception ,costumer relations (Besti,Mithatcan) restaurant (all of them) ,bars (Emircan), towel service,the lady cleaning tables in the pool). There isn't any selfservice anymore but the staff behind the counters are very patient in your selection and orders (paying so much respect even to little children).They are all very helpful, fast and well organized. The food is plentyful and very high in quality, in every and each corner.
As most of the guests are from Russia, about 60% (nothing bad about it),russian is like an official language in the hotel.
Credits to animation team members (especially Atakan and Dogan assigned for guests that speak english) who are entertaining and make sure they don't get imposing at the same time. The others (girls)are very nice,polite and active but don't approach you as they speak basic english. The night shows are same as everywhere with a lot of space for improvement. But, there is live music played every night and the bands are really great (especially rock bands).
The location of the hotel is in the middle of nowhere and there is no place to walk in the vicinity. This is why the hotel provides you many activities and all the amenities,bars and the beach are very easy to access.
Fitness hall is quite small in space and has no proper AC.
Be careful with the photo service!!! They bother you all the time trying to convince you taking photos, specifying no price saying you would get a special price as you pick the photos of your choice. But this is not true at all..you end up loosing so much time with no deal (8 eur per digital photo) and they the bossy guy that stays at the counter calls you crazy if you decide not to get them (what happened to me)
Generally I would highly recommend this hotel to all those interested in a high quality service and professionalism.

This hotel is not 5*. It is 3* at best. The rooms need to be renovated, the wood on the doorframes and wardrobes is rotting. There is no ventilation in the bathroom, which means if you have a warm shower the floor turns into an ice skating rink. Whilst the resturant and bar staff are lively, the reception and guest relations staff are not helpful.

The food is mediocre and the main buffet resturant is chaos at 8pm with many people standing waiting for tables. The Mexican resturant is really not that good. I think the best food I ate all holiday was pizza!

If you want a sunlounger around the pool you need to put your towels down by 8am or you won’t get one. The tiles around the swimming pool are slippery and they don’t have enough non-slip mats to cover the whole pool area. I saw many people slip over.

The entertainment is in Turkish and German, so if you don’t speak one of those languages, you won’t understand it.

The hairdresser and water sports are very over priced and the spa, whilst good has very agressive sales men, that you have to walk past every day to get your beach towels.

There is no mini golf and the gym is tiny, with several machines broken.

I really have very little that is positive to say about this resort.

We were at this hotel in July 2021.
7 people, divided into 2 families, 3 small children up to 10 years and one of 14. Arriving at the hotel was easy, some distance from the airport, but the travel time has passed easily. We were enthusiastically received by the hotel staff, check-in was quick and easy.
The rooms was nice and clean. Cleaned everyday.
We felt very well during our stay. The fun was at her house.
The beach is fine, there are enough sunbeds, sand, warm sea and relatively moderate waves. Even my wife came in, who is afraid of the waves.
The food was delicious, sufficient and varied. Lots of opportunities. I couldn't taste more than 1/3 of everything there was.
The drinks were good and diverse, cocktails, juices, etc. Coffee and tea are the order of the day, very good.
Shopping in the hotel was a pleasure, acceptable prices, even good can be negotiated.
The yard, the garden, the pools, the playgrounds, the slides are all fantastic. The children could not get enough of the fun.
The food during the day at restaurants was of all kinds, burgers, mini-pizza, nuggets, salads, etc.
A special attraction was ice cream made from goat's milk. Well, I've never eaten such a delicious ice cream in my life. It cannot be described in words how good it is.
The service in the restaurants was exceptional. They were prepared to prevent the spread of COVID. At each table were all individually packaged, disinfectant, alcohol wipes, etc. We felt safe.

It was 7 days of pleasure and relaxation!
I highly recommend the hotel. Ideal for those with family not only.
I would return to Crystal Admiral Hotel anytime!

Just come home from a week at this resort. Previous reviews are mixed but the truth is somewhere in between. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves but it's a bit misleading to say this hotel.is five star. I would rate this as 4 at the most but we enjoyed ourselves.

The resort itself is lovely with a great water park for the kids. The main pools themselves are great if you have an older child that can swim but with a depth of 140cm it's not really ideal for younger children. The floor tiles around are also not suitable for the area and while there we saw numerous people take a tumble on them. Admittedly they are marked as a slipping hazard and blue matting is put down along the popular walkways to mitigate but the main pool bar area is extremely hazardous during the day . The Water park is great for the kids to have something apart from.the pool.

The food is varied and caters for vegans right through to the health conscious or picky teenagers. The only drawback is its a real free for all with no queuing system and people pushing in to get what they want. The other thing I found difficult was people smoking whilst you were eating your food. We tried to get around this by always sitting outside and the staff were brilliant with us never having to wait for a table and them ensuring I had one one the outside so I did not have to breathe in so much smoke.

The decor in the rooms is slightly dated but the beds were comfortable. Each room has a non alcoholic mini bar which is restocked every day. Bottled water is free. Cleaning staff come around every day and brush the floors, make the beds if you haven't and give you fresh towels. It's very much a surface clean though and if you look too closely there is a lot that could be cleaner.

Not many of the staff speak English but they do their best. One young lad on the beach even had a translation app on his phone when he struggled to tell.us this was where the sea turtles nested when we asked about a white string stretched across the beach. ( To try and stop people sitting that far down the beach but as there were no signs saying this it didn't work)

If going out for trips try and arrange them yourself if you can as one or two.of us after talking to each other found out the rep at the front is taking advantage. We paid £70 more for a family of three for the Pirate Boat arranged by him.than a family of 4 did when they arranged it themselves.

Also be aware there is nothing outside of this resort here and if you want to go shopping be prepared for a bus trip at least half an hour away.

Another thing to be aware of is the lighting on the steps in the entertainment arena. When all.other lighting is dimmed the steps are very poorly lit. I was unfortunate enough to miss my footing when one of the top steps had no light and take a nasty fall. If my son had not grabbed my arm I would have gone right to the bottom from the top, as it was I only tumbled about 3 steps but spent the rest of my holiday very bruised and sore.

Minibar in hotel is filled daily, with soft drinks like fruit teas, coke lemonade ect, there was once it wasn't filled. However they were pretty good. It's all included with the all inclusive. Hope this helps
