It was very hard to decide to choose a new hotel (completed 2012). Many people (both friends and the travel agency) told us a definite NO for this option. I had seen but Delphin Hotel Imperial in 2011, when I was staying at the Delphin Diva. So, knowing the quality of the Delphin Diva I decided to return to Delphin chain. With little emotion (inauguration took place on May 1, 2012, exactly one month delay from the date announced) we arrived at the hotel.
A GOOD CHOICE, THAT we never regret!
The only regret is related to the period. May is the start of the season, the weather being quite moody, with some precipitation and sea water (and swimming) relatively cold. I compared that within days of Antalya in August and September in previous years, but this year only way possible. We consoled but by 2 weeks of dreams and relaxation.
Very high. We had a standard room, side sea view. I got a huge room with 2 double beds over 4 square pieces, a cot and a small sofa. And besides all this much remains playground for children.
The bathroom is also large, with the biggest shower I have ever seen in a hotel (1.5 x 1 m).
Cleanliness in the rooms is done daily. Special thanks to Kadriye Atasavar (maid).
Minibar is filled every day: Pepsi, Mirinda, Efes beer, water, mineral water, fruit juice (tetrapak), nuts, chocolate.
Longer have room for a kettle and tea bags and sugar.
On arrival we received room and um fruit plate, a glass of red wine and some articles promtionale. I could not figure out whether all guests receive the same or were simply because we are for the second time in a hotel chain Delphin. However, we did Delphin Club members with loyalty card;).
For breakfast, lunch and dinner you have the main restaurant. For lunch there are alternative snack Imperial Lyra, near the beach where you can find a kind of soup, Donner (chicken or beef), fries, mashed potatoes, rice, pasta, a kind of fish, a main dish of meat, lots of salads, cold appetizers, desserts (3-4 courses) and fruit (watermelon red and yellow, nash pears, apples, strawberries, oranges, kiwi, pineapple, grapefruit).
And fruit for dinner were well prepared for the chocolate (white or black) and ice cream (the real thing, not the envelope, 6 types).
At dinner, the main restaurant terrace with a saxophone playing a nenic and in restaurants a la carte is also a band.
There are 6 a la carte restaurants in the hotel: Fusion (International Cuisine fee), Museum (French cuisine), Da Vinci (meat and wine), Mia Mensa (Italian cuisine), Helen (Greek cuisine), Zuma (sushi, Japanese cuisine, Chinese cuisine) and 2 restautante close to the beach: Pescador (fish) and Lalezar (Turkish cuisine). Because we were accompanied by a bad baby two years, I have not tried any of them but as viewers we can say that showed dementia (both locations and preparations). Reservation-based access.
The main restaurant Gusto find a wide range of dishes. For breakfast you can choose: brazeturi, sausage, fish (smoked, marinated, ...), salads, several kinds of yogurt, cereals (8 types), nuts, seeds, etc., omelet made from ingredients chosen each egg cooked plates, pancakes classic American pancakes, waffles, donuts, pastries (in this chapter are below those at Diva), juice, fresh orange, tea, coffee, fruit.
At lunch you can find the same things as the Imperial Lyra snack, maybe a more diverse idea.
Every Sunday, in the main restaurant Gusto, organized brunch.
At dinner most of the dishes are prepared in front of tourists. Unlike lunch, dinner are cooks who prepare grilled chicken, beef, lamb, fish, pasta, baked potatoes with various toppings, grilled vegetables and steamer, rotisserie chicken, diet corner. In the restaurant there is a booth for children with a mini playground. Drinks are served at the table very attentive waiters.
Anyway, special thanks to Mesut Bulut - Rest Chef.
Each evening dinner is another specific: Italian, Turkish ... For dessert you can choose from famous baklava to the most sophisticated torture. Master baker boasts over 350 models of cookies (about 250 I managed to photograph us in those two weeks, so we believe the word).
The restaurant Gusto, as more have written, organized evenings teme: Italian night, Mexican fisherman, Turkish, Gala Night.
Besides these evenings I got Mother's Day. On entering the restarurant children receiving flowers that mother gives them. It was nice!
Evening fishermen, in addition to regular menu, gasisti a variety of fish. They have a bar over the desired fish you choose, be whole, be it file, and your chef prepares it. They did two fish (tuna) that I clean them fileteaza in your face.
In the evening most dishes are Turkish Turkish cuisine including cakes. Turkish Gala Evening and Friday Night is held alternately. But in our Turkish night was postponed by one day because the day coincided with the youth, sport and thought of Ataturk. So we had a big cake with Ataturk, a personality of Turkey, considered the founder of modern Turkey.
Evening Gala Night was spectacular. Both the software and as food. Evening begins with a parade of waiters in the pool. The restaurant at around 8:30 p.m. there is a parade of chefs, in which he presents a festive menu. Then the party continues in the amphitheater.
Most of us were known entertainers from Diva.
Animation programs are good and in place. The main path to find a panel that are past times for each activity daily progress. Adults can choose: gymnastics, aqua gym. volleyball, boccia, water sports from swimming, rifle shooting, darts.
Children activities are displayed on the panel at the Mini Club. Activities begin at 10:00 with dance entertainers to the pool. A further detailing activities to children. The program is repeated every 2 weeks and includes: creative activities (masks, hearts, prejituri) pool games (we have not really had them, the relatively cold water), fantomelo day, Indian day, pirate day, games ( mini darts, mini bowling, boccia, chair dance ...). And perhaps the nicest time: mini playback show. Children learn some dances that they present poi at 21:30 in the show. After mini play back show was a beach party with bonfire and fireworks.
I recommend you do not miss "Mojito Party". Evening begins with a live music show and continue with the hottest music specatol launch supported by the best DJ in Antalya.
Find a "relaxation pool" (without children), 2 swimming pools (depth 140 cm), a pool with mini slide (depth 35 cm), a children's pool with slides (80 cm) and the aqua park pool (110 cm) , 2 indoor pools (140 cm and 25 cm).
In the end special thanks, also, to Natalia Sarioglu (Guest Relation)
