It is possible to practice water sports on the beach. The options include renting watercraft and pedal boats to parasailing. This is at your own expense. Nice prices are charged for this during the high season.
Swimming pools and slides
The hotel has a small indoor swimming pool. Outside there are two large swimming pools and a paddling pool. The pools are clean and well maintained. There are also four large slides. These slides are not just for little visitors. Fathers and mothers will also enjoy these slides. A tip: on the red slide, pull your legs up slightly just before you end up in the water. This causes a major tidal wave. Nice when unsuspecting people are watching.
If you want to rent a car, there are numerous options. One of the cheapest options for this is a one-minute walk from the hotel. When you leave the main entrance and turn left, you will see a currency exchange office after about 50 meters on the right. Here you can rent a car at a good price.
Pros and cons
Of course, every hotel has its pros and cons. What can be difficult is that the staff speaks very poor English, especially in the low season. This can be difficult if you want specific information and they do not understand you well due to the language problem. On the other hand, German can get you very far. The staff is friendly, but they also let you know if you are a bit too ‘ difficult ‘. Sometimes the staff can be a bit curt.
Siam Elegance Hotel & Spa is definitely worth it if you want to have a holiday in Turkey. However, it is advisable to look at all options. The choice of luxury hotels in the region is enormous and many more hotels are being built.
