The Sueno Resort is what some would say “a little
tired”. That is understandable as down at the beach Sueno are building a
1200 person new luxury hotel which looks amazing! Having said that, the
hotel was still very clean, tidy and presented well. The rooms where very
spacious (we were upgraded to a Senior room at no extra cost!) and if you get
the option request (before you go!) a golf course view.
Where the Sueno lost maybe 1 point out of 10 was the
food. There was plenty of it and of good quality but it was the variety
that was lacking. In the end we picked pretty much the same type of food each
day and it was more than pleasant. If you are expecting a large variety of
tastes and/or restaurants then maybe Sueno isn’t for you…
They do offer an “A La Carte” option each evening which
varies the theme each evening – book as soon as you get there as some of the
evenings get sold out quickly.
The drinks provided as part of the all-inclusive deal where
very good – even the local Turkish wines were very nice. All spirits
where branded spirits so no complaints there and the local beer is more than OK
(not a big beer drinker anyway)…
The transfer time of about 30 minutes was really convenient
and we had no hassle on the 14-seater transfer bus. The hotel itself is a 4-5
minute walk from the beach but they run a shuttle service if you are that way
inclined – the walk is fine and nice to stretch your legs after a game of golf.
One thing the Sueno does have that we all *REALLY* enjoyed
was the beach pier. It’s larger than every other hotel’s, very spacious
and the staff are very helpful. They don’t supply lunch/food on the pier but
that is available in the beach bar/café – maybe a thought for them to consider.
The location of the hotel in relation to the golf courses is
perfect and sitting watching golfers come down the 9th/18th is very
Overall verdict – this was our first all-inclusive golf
holiday and we all rated it 9/10 – the food being the only *slight* downside.
We will definitely return to Turkey and even to the current
Sueno as the Pines course is very good and we would like to play the Dunes as
