"By far the best hotel we have been to!!!"
Me and my wife stayed at the Delphin Be Grande resort in Antalya for 5 nights. I have to say that this was definitely one of the best hotels we have stayed in. We're can i start, firstly the hotel lives up to all expectations. The decoration was modern and luxurious. It was spotless with the staff forever cleaning to maintain it. The facilities were brilliant everything you expect from a 5* hotel and the price we paid was so affordable. The room was clean and very nice and comfortable. The mini bar was filled up everyday for free. So many choices of breakfast, lunch & dinner as well as all the snack bars they have during the day with loads of different choices. At night they had entertainment for both adults & children. There was also free sheesha for those who enjoy. The pool area was clean and bar staff were very nice, all the staff were very hospitable and went out of their way to accomodate our needs. Management team were very friendly especially Mehmet Yayli - Operation Manager who went out his way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. All staff worked extremely hard. I would like to elaborate on how safe we felt on this resort and Turkey. We understand with all the upheaval some people dont feel safe travelling to Turkey, but as i mentioned this was far the best destination & hotel we have been to and we are already looking to book again. As well as recommending this hotel to our family who have booked a stay in August, as we feel without a doubt they will enjoy their stay as much as we did. Keep up the good work and we hope to see you soon. We also hope people will read this and consider visiting the hotel, perfect holiday for both couples and families, with something to do for everybody. We hope to be back soon.

Be grand dulphin amazing hotel And very good service... i enjoyed staying there.. the room was good and beutiful.the pools so many. the food was good and tasty. And i enjoy the spa. Thank you for everything .
I visited Delphin Be Grand in late April 2017 and it was very nice. The hotel has an excellent service! Nice lobby with some welcome goodies. When I arrived it was late at night and I could go to the Irish Pub for a late night dinner where I could eat something good and have some drinks, since it is open until 7 am. The room was very nice, with bathrobe and slippers, and a filled free minibar (2 medium bottles of red and white wine, local beer, cola, water, small juice and a waffle and chips. I know they have free Wi-Fi in the rooms and hotel with a password from the reception. Food was good in the main restaurant with open buffet (free within its ultra all inclusive system), with a good offer to eat indoor or outdoor. Free fresh orange juice and banana/milk for the breakfast ... You could also eat a kebab, gozleme or other stuff at the snack bars within its territory. For the evening, you can book a reservation for an a la carte restaurant at the automatic machines next to the reception for the same evening or for the following evening. It's once free per stay at each one (so one free at the Fish restaurant for an evening, the next evening one free at the Mexican restaurant, etc.). There are 7 in high season, but 5 were open when I was there. I had one at the Asian restaurant with excellent meal and whisky/wine, I loved it! You could have lots of (free) drinks at the bars, such as Jack Daniel's, Chivas, Jim Beam, Jameson bourbon, Tia Maria and Kahlua coffee liquor, beer, wine, cocktails, etc., etc. The beach is nice, large, with a pier where you could stay on a sunbed. The sea water temperature was acceptable in the first day, I could swim, not so much in the next days. The indoor swimming pool as well as one outdoor swimming pool was well heated! Other outdoor pools were cooler but not cold, I guess they were slightly heated but OK to swim there for some 10-15 min. The same was for the water temperature at the big waterpark they have, you could deal with it, it was not very cold. The aquapark is really nice with a 12 water slides, very high, and with a lazy river as well (where you get your hair wet from some miniature waterfalls you go through) :) There is a very nice big kids aquapark next to it (7 water slides), where you can spend a lot of time and not get bored. These are some major investments, as the hotel was closed all of 2016 to undergo a complete renovation, from the previous Rixos Lares to the Delphin chain of today. Many areas were fully renovated, the hotel being like a brand new one now. There are some outdoor pools to choose from, an olympic one, a relaxation one, one with the animation team and its games, the aquaparks ... The gym area is big with a nice offer to choose from for staying fit. In the evening, the hotel had a very nice game of lights, changing various colors continuously at the balconies - nice to watch! There is a also a free lunapark for the kids (opened a few hours per day). Almost anything at this hotel is free, less the game room and maybe some few other things. There is also a night club area where you can dance in the night with free drinks at their bar. You can reach a shopping mall just walking outside the hotel. The hotel staff was very nice everywhere, really nothing to complain about it. I had a lovely stay at this hotel - I enjoyed it very much!
"Best holiday ever"
Just got back from an amazing holiday. I don't know where to start and this is my first ever review so I'll try my best to get everything in. This was our first family holiday in 4 years and we couldn't have picked a better place to come. I had told my wife that we were going to a different hotel so she would get a surprise and she didn't half lol. Once I had seen the new pictures after it had been refurbished I knew this hotel was the one. Check in was very smooth and everything was explained to us very clearly. We stayed in room 4222, 6 of us in total 2 adults 4 kids (6,5,3,5months). Room was excellent with two mini bars that get filled once a day and are included in your all inclusive package 😊 which was a blessing with kids. The lady who checked us in I think was day time manager at reception as she had on a white shirt at time while everyone else had on red and white. She was excellent and helped me anytime I went to ask anything and so did the night shift manager Rifat( I think that his name) very funny guy and always smiling. Lazy river and kids pool were brilliant but as there was a breeze and the water was cold once kids discovered the heated pool that's where they wanted to spend all there day lol once the weather is a bit hotter I think the kids pool would be the place to be even tho temp was at 24/30 while we were there. There is so much food when your at the pool. Burgers, donner, gozleme just some of my favourites and talking about favourites how can I mention food and not mention PIZZA 😋. Mehmet the pizza chef made some amazing pizza I never got sick of it probably miss his pizzas the most from all the food, he was a true gentleman spoke to everyone in there own language and always a smile on his face. When we got talking I told him I'm from Glasgow but originally my family from Pakistan and he broke out in fluent Urdu he actually spoke better than me lol enjoyed a good chat with him while my pizza got made. Plenty staff on roller skates getting everyone drinks poolside. It's big hotel so roller skates made sense to get round quick lol Breakfast and dinner the main restaurant was again quality every night. We never went for lunch as we always had so much poolside. Small section made up of different rooms to sit and eat. We ended up in the grape kiss section most times and the waiter there(never got chance to ask his name he never spoke much English) tall skinny fella with spiked up hair was 2nd to Mehmet in our staff rating. He worked so hard every time we saw him another true diamond of the hotel with staff like this hotel will shine for a long time. Used the gym 4 times and it's really good the member of staff working there would walk about every 20mins fixing stuff even if it was only me in there he would still go round once to check everything lol Kids animation team are also very hard working and get there best to take the kids off you so you can enjoy yourself lol I think I'll stop as I can go on forever and ever tho in short staff is amazing the place is amazing and it's the first holiday which we didn't want to leave and are planning on coming back in few years if not next year In sha Allah There is only one bad point which I'm only saying as I know other people would have had the same problem and I don't want this hotel to be held back by this one issue. In the evening there is Shisha available at the hotel which again is free of charge. Chichin (I think that's how you spell it) she shisha master as he calls himself is hot and cold. My experience with him wasn't pleasant and some evening he actually kind of ruined my night with his attitude but not for long as I had such an amazing day I quickly forgot about him First day we went to him he was all smiles and gave us a shisha Second day he was very rude and finally gave us a shisha but was just being very unpleasant. Third day he was okay Forth day he said to us wait 30mins you go to long as we don't drink alcohol shisha is kind of only thing we do so I said ok we wait plus kids like to run about there as there so much and the music and the way the hotel lights change kids loved going there at night. So we sat down and this couple came and he gave them a shisha each first while clearly we had been before them. Then he gave us one Fifth day he turned his back on me as I walked towards him and wasn't doing anything at all so I turned round and thought nah forget this and we just went to our room. This wasn't just with me it was with other guests also he would be rude and say no shisha today or wait for so long or you can only have one when he gave that couple i each and later there friend came And he gave her one also. I don't know if it's because they looked from and Arab country but his excuses didn't make sense. After the first day I said to my wife we will give him a tip tomorrow as he works the shisha bit himself and works hard I would of gave him tip then but I left my money in my room but 2nd day his attitude was stinking I didn't bother. I think if you tipped him he looked after you but with his attitude he won't be getting much tips. He also asked my wife if she was Arab she said no maybe if she said yes service might of been better lol. Either he is stressed doing it himself and needs help or he just wants tips either way the management need to look into it. I seen him sayin to two men only one shisha not two when he had so many ready to go. Besides the shisha master this hotel is worth every penny and the only hotel we didn't want to leave and we were planning on coming back to while we were still there 😃 Almost forgot the wifi is 👌🏽 Thank from the Asghar Family for a brilliant holiday and see you all soon ☺️
