This is a detailed video review of the Hilton Dalaman Sarigerme Resort & Spa in Turkey, from July 2017.
I stayed at the Hilton Dalaman Sarigerme Resort & Spa in Turkey, in July 2017, two of us stayed for 1 week, all-inclusive booked as a package with Jet2Holidays. The package included return flights from Leeds Bradford Airport to Dalaman Airport, 2 complimentary drinks each on the plane, extra leg-room seats on the plane, airport transfers in Turkey, 7 night's accommodation in a room with a sea view, all-inclusive premium brand drinks (24 hours a day), all-inclusive food from 07:00 until 01:00, and use of the majority of the resort's facilities as well as entertainment. This cost £1,192 per person, and whilst expensive, represents a very good value holiday experience, considering the scope and luxury of what is on offer.
The staff were extremely courteous, and very polite, welcoming and groomed to perfection, they all looked amazing in their crisp uniforms. The reception and lobby area is a vast wood, steel and glass building, with a cavernous open space giving the feeling of being outside and indoors. The lobby is spread over four floors.
Our room was on the third floor, which is the same as the reception, you enter the reception at the upper level. There is one floor above this, which also has access to bedrooms and a bar - the Rouge Bar.
Our room (1342) was very large, the bed was a super-king sized bed, the floors were carpeted (so no chair scrapes from the floor above), and there were ample plug sockets for charging up all manner of gadgets.
There was a large double wardrobe, ample shelves, drawers, a dressing table, several mirrors, large safe (easily held a laptop), tea and coffee making facilities, and a mini-bar that was FREE and re-stocked daily.
The bathroom was open plan, with a closed off shower / bath area and a separate toilet area. The shower was completely accessible, no step up at all, in a wet-room configuration, with a bath-tub and second shower next to it. This was well thought out.
The toilet was in a separate room on it's own.
The room had a balcony overlooking the gardens towards the sea. It was dubbed ‘a sea view room’, above the tree tops on the horizon, we could see a snippet of the blue sea.
The bars were very good, all premium brand spirits and superb bar-staff.
The main buffet restaurant ‘Sarigerme’ was amazing, definitely the best food I have ever eaten in Turkey, and the widest buffet selection that I have ever seen at a hotel anywhere in the world.
There are several other restaurants and bars dotted around the site, which are also included in the all-inclusive deal. As well as these, there are several a-la-carte restaurants, which cost 15 Euro per head on an evening, with all-inclusive drinks.
The site has seven outdoor swimming pools, three indoor pools and a Turkish Bath. The swimming pools at this resort are quite simply amazing. Each accommodation block has its own pool, these were always quiet. There is an activity pool, a kids pool and a chilled out adults only pool, there is also a water park with slides – again this is all free to use.
The gardens are enormous, and an army of gardeners are constantly mowing, watering and pruning all day long.
There is a private beach, which has sun loungers, bar and a short jetty.
The majority of customers at the resort seemed to be from Turkey, Ukraine, Russia and the UK, along with a few Iranians, Americans and Italians.
I asked for daily occupancy percentages, and during my stay this fluctuated between 70% and 95%, but it just never felt busy. The resort is vast with so many facilities, that even when nearly full it just doesn’t feel it. It really is a great place.
