More about Majesty Club Tuana Park
Majesty Club is not typical Turkey
Just returned from a week at the Majesty Club Tuana.
On arrival we were offered a room on a boat, as they were overbooked glad to say we declined as it was very small and by all accounts very basic. Do not be fooled by some of the web sites some of the rooms are very small and not 5*. If you are a fussy eater you will have a problem with the food. I always found something but lots of people were complaining. Do not bother with the fish restaurant it has to be booked 24hrs in advance and after the big build up the food is just plonked infront of you and there is no choice.
I did approach the operations manager and explain that the English guests were not at all happy, his only positive response was that they are targeting the English market now and that next year they will be catering more for the English.
The complex is a little isolated but there is an excellent local bus service, the hotel bus only goes into town 3 times a day and you do have to pay.
We were on park 1 which has its own pool and was a lot quieter than the main pool which was very busy and had lots of activities going on. On a positive note the hotel was very clean and lots to keep children busy.
If you do decide to risk it and pay them a visit there is a lovely little shop down the road between park 1 and the main hotel where they sell English news papers and Mustafa who runs it speaks excellent English and is full of local knowledge.
Fantastic, can't understand the moans
We have just got back from a fabulous week in the sun at Majesty Club Tuana. The hotel was excellent, our room was upgraded to a family room upon arrival. We arrived at 6am, but the staff were plentiful, friendly, and helped us settle in straight away. The hotel has several different areas, which cater for everyone's needs, either relaxed and quiet, or fun and energetic. The food was great, good choice and quality, with much cooked as you waited. We can't fault the hotel, people, or location, and would not hesitate to go back !
2nd Time at Tuana
We returned to Majesty Tuana on the 19th April having had a fantastic time last October to find that the whole hotel was still putting the finishing touches to its revamp.
We were the first guests in the hotel, and the only guests for the first day. On the whole the hotel was deserted for days and a little too quiet for our liking. As there were no guests the entertainment was non existent for those first few days. By the end of holiday 9 nights later things were starting to get going.
Although the hotel being quiet the food was good, although not as much choice as October, and the hotel has really been updated.
The rooms and bathrooms have been renovated and the bathrooms are really nice now. The hotel has also got new bar areas, new jetty, new sunshades and generally all around the hotel it has been upgraded. All in all we had a good time but probably wouldnt recommend going to Majesty Tuana for the first weeks of opening for the season - it was very quiet.
Majesty Tuana still isn't a 5 star hotel as sometimes stated but it is a good quality clean hotel and one we would recommend .
Had a really wonderful week
We have jut got back from a week at Majesty Tuana Park - and what a really fantastic time we had. We really could not fault the hotel at all. Bed linen changed every day, high standards of cleanliness throughout the hotel complex, beautiful gardens, well maintained pools, friendly helpful staff. It was a pleasure walking through the gardens to the main restaurant, where the food served was of a good standard, and quite a varied choice. The staff on the reception desk were very helpful indeed and when we arrived at 11:30 at night, we were shown to the restaurant, which was still open, whilst the bellboy took our cases to our room and all done in such a friendly and welcoming manner. We stayed in one of the Park Rooms which was a lovely quiet location and we could go over to the main pool area when we wanted a little more action! Our only disappointment was the fact that we only booked for one week - big mistake!!
I would not recommend this hotel
I did read up on the reviews before I booked this hotel, however they were quite mixed so I thought it would be ok. Most of the reviews were saying that it was not a 5 star but more like a 3 which I could live with as they did seem to have a lot of facilities. The hotel grounds were really nice, lots of palm trees, greenery, flowers etc, the rooms weren't too bad either. My main problem with this hotel was the food, I know your'e probably not going to get the very best standard at an all inclusive, however I have done them before and can safely say this was by far the worst food I have eaten at an all inclusive. They were definitely catering for the Russian guests at the hotel, which was about 80% of the guests. I don't think I tasted any authentic turkish food, only in the a la carte restaurant which you could only book once. The salads were ok but most of the hot food was not great, I'm not a fussy eater and did manage to find something to eat but it was not enjoyable, it was a matter of trying to find something that was edible. There were lots of flies around the food as well. Most of the reception staff were really rude and not accomodating. A lot of the Russian people were not that friendly either, didn't smile, were quite aggresive and barged past and literally pushed you out of the way for food, obviously a different culture. The hotel is also a bit out of the way from everthing. There is bus service into town 3 times a day but you do have to pay, cabs are quite a reasonsable price, but it would of been nice if there were bars / shops near to the complex. This was my first visit to Turkey, I do not think staying at this hotel was a true representation of what Turkey has to offer. We did visit Olu Deniz whilst we were there and it was lovely, so it would probably be better to find somewhere there.
When we arrived at 6am the guy on reception welcomed us very sleepily and complained that the UK flights are "too late!", meaning he was tired. Poor boy. There wasn't a cot in our room for our very tired 3 yr old and after a row with the rudest reception staff we've come across and a chat with our Turkish rep (also the rudest we,ve met), it was sorted out the following day. Ok, the wine wasn't great, nor the vodka ( which you're lucky any is left coz the Russians do like their Vodka, XXXXL) and sometimes the gin, but the bottled beer is Pils and quite nice. Once they ran out of beer at the pool bar and I was told "finished" but straight away they were on the phone and the beers were replenished within 5 minutes. So you wouldn't die of thirst. The entertainment staff are all lovely, a bit quirky but not over pushy. Food is alright, our 3yr old had something at every mealtime and it wasn't chips either. I noticed that a lot of the kids liked the Spaghetti Bolognaise or Pizza which was available lunch and evening. They had themed nights and we did get some traditional dishes some nights. You could also get a burger, chips and hot dogs from the snack bar at 3ish, they aren't good on time keeping but you are on holiday and have all the time in the world so what does it matter.The swimming pool is fantastic.The rooms and grounds are kept spotless. The beach is a bit sad if you like sand but at dusk the sunset is amazing. We were in park 2 which I highly recommend, there is a small pool and bar if you'd like a bit of peace. You also don't get the coming and goings for the rest of the complex at night. There are slides, mini golf, pets corner, kids club, tennis courts, football pitch, archery, darts and the huge swimming pool, pedolo's, wind surfing, jet ski's, boat taxi's. Kids love it. The shops on the complex are over priced, after sun was £20. They also confuse you by wanting to give change in a different currency to what you pay in, don't fall for it, pay in euro or sterling.
Overall, for a weeks stay this was great. Don't come here if you want to experience the famous Turkish hospitality, I don't think the staff are encouraged to fratanise with guests and the waiter staff are only there to clear tables, it is all self serve which is weird for a 5 star place. So what, everything was to hand and readily available. Maybe we missed Russian Holiday week?
Great place to stay
We've just returned fom a weeks holiday and it was great. We read a few bad reviews before we left and got a bit worried but it was superb. The whole complex was really clean and well laid out. The staff were great, lots of choice of food and plenty to drink. Good location, private beach with watersports, clean towels for beach, tennis and lots more. Fethiye was only a 15 minute drive away and had some good shopping. 12 Island cruise is a must if you fancy a day out. Other guests had read same reviews as us and were pleasantly surprised too. Lacks entertainment in the evenings for adults and this needs to improve but apart from that, no complaints. Transfer from Dalaman airport is only 25-30 mins which is great for somone like me who hates bus/ mimibus journeys. Three in our party, 20 yr old, 30 something and 40 something and we all enjoyed our stay.
We have just got back from club tuana this morning at 5-30.
I was glad to get home.The complex is well layed out,but there
are problems.The rooms are very small,to say its meant to be 5*,you have to walk 1/2 mile to the resteraunt,the food was bland and often tasteless.Night time there are 2main bars.One by the pool and one near the al/a/carte rest.Both have only the one beer pump and limited drinks,entertainment was not up to much either.Alot more could be done.This was my first trip to Turkey and certainly the last.Highlight of the week meeting two couples which took our mind of it.
oasis in the middle of nowhere
Beautiful hotel if you could pick it up and put it in the middle of Fethiye. Good facilities, pools great, waterslides and a good beach, food ok but nothing to write home about. There lays the problem, it is very remote and at least 10km from Fethiye. There is a shuttle bus that runs there once a day and you will want to go there because if you have forgot anything the resort shop will break the bank. A taxi is around £32 return. Tip:- take plenty of the free water on offer at the hotel to the airport, the prices there should be on recordbreakers.
I had doubts after booking this resort having read some of the reviews on this site. I can assure you that this is by far the best resort I have stayed at. I arrived early morning after a delayed flight and were the only guests to get off the coach. It was obvuous from the entrance that this was a 5* complex. We were shown to our room (Park 1) which was small, but then again you are on holiday and are you going to stay in your room other than to sleep or change. However the room was clean. The balcony was however small. I had a twin bedded room and could have done with a little bit more space, but it was ample. Having spoken to other guests, those with 3 bedded rooms had too much room. The hotel has three pools. One main and there is another small one on each Park. The main pool was about 3 minutes walk away from Park 1 and about 4-5 from Park 2. The main pool was large. By far the largest I have ever seen in a holiday resort. The restaurants around the complex served the most delicious food which was always different. I would suggest that you don't go for the 1st thing you see. Take some time to wander around the main restaurant before choosing. There is a grill area in the middle, fresh salad at the sides, hot plates towards the rear and outside there are more different dishes being prepared. It changes daily. However away from the main restaurant are other bars that also serve snacks throughout the day. Ice cream is serviced for one hour everyday and the queue can be quite long for a cornet and ice cream. The bars were always well stocked and the staff I always found attentive. There were plenty of sun loungers surrounding the pool, the adjacent gardens and the beach. Depending on your needs of sun or shade, you can decide where the best position for you is. However there is a tendency for other guests to place their belongings on certain sun beds, so if you find the ideal position, you have to play the same game. The entertainment was excellent, the animation team are 1st class. You don't have to take part and if you stay by the pools in Park 1 or 2 you won't even know its going on. But if you want some fun, take it. They made my holiday. There is plenty going on throughout the day starting at 10:00 with a break between 12:00 and 15:00 continuing until about 17:00. I didn't take any children, but I could see that the mini club for children and teenagers was well run with activities throughout the day. After evening meal times a childrens disco commences and then there is a different show every night. There is a beautifully maintained wooden pier that comes off the beach. This is also occupied by sun loungers. A water sports company operate from the beach as well as a PADI scuba centre. The diving is excellent and there are pool trys every day after lunch. I have read reviews complaining about the Russians. Yes they can be rude, but this is their nature. They appear not to be able to understand the concept of "thank you", "please" or "excuse me", but they are of course a different culture, and all cultures are different. English were a minority, but if thats what you want, go to Magaluf and sepnd your time in British pubs. Overall, I really enjoyed this resport, it was safe and there was lots to do. I am seriously thinking of going back and I would certainly recommend it, however I would consider staying in the club rooms which are just as well maintained as those on the parks and still situated within the well kept gardens.
