First off, take the advice of many Turks travelers: more money less clothes.
The RWI Resort is a beautiful property. Most of the staff are incredible. Our stay was from 3/18-3/23 2012.
Here's my advice, stay on the highest floor possible. The flooring is all ceramic tile and occupants above will begin sliding chairs, dropping stuff, and running (wait stomping) laps around their room promptly at 7am. I was on the first floor in room 312. Staying on the upper level will allow you to avoid the staff activities involving walkie-talkies and maintanace. I would not stay at building 3 if I return. There is a sensor that goes off randomly (usually when you want to nap) that sounds like a smoke alarm. It involves the truck lift or something. It went off everyday we were there. The front desk is unaware until you call. Our phone was 90% static as well. The fridge was on it's last legs. The bed was great and made sleeping easy.
The beach is great. Get out there early (i.e. 5am) to stake your claim to a chair and umbrella. We had no problem getting the staff to move us or set up chairs away from the crowds. We had several 4 person NEW families with babies around us what seemed like everyday. While we like babies and families, we didn't care for the new mothers saying the babies' names 50 times a minute. Thanks "Owen's Mom". LOL. We had no issues really with getting a bit of quiet.
We didn't eat at the restuarant there. We had drinks at the bar the last night. Sammy is great.
I don't want anyone to think this resort is horrible as it is not. Just this particular building. I would suggest using VRBO to find a place here instead of Expedia or others. You can probably get a better deal and nicer place. Would have given a 5 star raiting but the noise and such caused the 4 stars.
Listen up and listen good: get to the airport 3-4 hours ahead. While flying in will be pleasant, departing will remind you of trying to evacuate a third world country during an invasion. It is horribly unorganized. We barely made our flight even while arriving 2.5 hours ahead. There are no signs or directions. Go in first and check-in. Then get back in the line that will wrap 2 times across the length of the front of the airport which is the security line. If you stand in line, you will have to check in and then get back in line at the end. Other travelers will help. Good luck.
