Everland Q children’s club – our personal favorite from Ela Quality Resort Belek
“What do you say, Ionut, will you stay with Andrei at the children’s club this time?” (please say yes, please say yes, so I can have an hour to myself this holiday). “They have a lot of activities there, including football” (I am touching a sensitive spot here.)
“I don’t know, mom, do I have to stay all day long? What if I am hungry? What if we get bored? What if I want you to come get me?”
Here comes the bombing questions strategy…
“We will have a deal with the nice people from the club and they can call us whenever you need me.”
“But how about just go see this club first!”.
Well, that’s why daddy is the wisest member of the family, I think and go on with his plan. I am secretly hoping they will love it and agree to stay there, so we can have a one/two hour adult time, so help us the All Mighty.
On a positive note: you have to enter a closed air conditioning facility by touching a sensor within the door, not accessible for kids under 130 cm, so they cannot get out by themselves! So, they’re trapped in here!!! (evilly kidding and not so much).
Well, the boys are so happy about the play options they decide to join the club. OMG! This must be my lucky day! It was the first time they wanted to join a Club, so we had 2 hours alone in the morning, just the two of us, for 2 consecutive days!!! After that, Andrei stayed with us, but Ionut kept going to the club for football (mostly, but also because he fell in love with a beautiful Turkish assistant there, Meltem).
We actually met Meltem in the kids club at Rixos Tekyrova Kemer, 2 years before, Ionut was head over heels with her since then. She now joined the Everland Q Club team and we were happy to meet her again.
Schedule: the club opens at 10.00 am and closes at 10.00 p.m. daily, with a break between 18.00 and 20.00 (actually no activities are scheduled during this time, but the club is open for access for families with children), at 20.30 there is mini disco and 21.00 various film screenings or performances for the children.
We were deeply impressed by the newly renovated club, where everything looks flawless:
- reception hall,
- restaurant (mainly for kids, but you can have a soup there with them),
- sleeping room for babies,
- small cinema room,
- activity room for infants and toddlers,
- activity room for children,
- fitness for babies,
- courtyard theatre with stage and stairs (every evening the boys attended the mini disco),
- playground outdoors but shaded, composed by swings, bridges, houses, cars, and a large dinosaur skeleton.
At the restaurant, everything is miniature size, tables and sofas, lower buffets where kids could serve themselves, ice cream freezer, fridge with water, milk, juices. Varied cooked meals, vegetables, fruits and sweets.
Also, for infants you can use the organic baby food corner, microwave, blender, bottle sterilizer. The schedule for this restaurant features lunch between 12.00 – 14.00, snack (cake time) between 15.00 – 15.30 and dinner between 18.00 and 20.00.
One night, the boys had a blast on one of the football fields, where they had inflatable games and rides, but also performances in the main theater (adult and children) from 21.30 to 22.30, with singers, dancers, athletes and magic.
One small regret, though. We didn’t get to go to adult disco and night shows for adults (like White beach party) for obvious reasons. Well, maybe in 5 or 6 years…
