My recommendations

I have been to most parts of Antalya and here are my suggestions:

If you stay in Antalya ,choose a 2 nights program in Hillside Su Hotel.It is the biggest designer hotel in the world.Very experimental,nice decoration inside.The color of hotel changes in every 3 minutes thanks to the light games...
If you prefer history,fresh mountain air along with clean pebble beaches choose Kemer,Tekirova,Kas.
If you prefer history,endless sandy beaches and big crowd choose Alanya,Side ..
The dead sea is beauitful and quiet and located in far west of Antalya..

The best time to go is May,June,September,October..
July and August is 40 degrees C and if you can't stand the heat ,you may evaporate..
In winter it is rainy and warm.The average temperature is 18 C and most of the elder european tourists choose winter offers.
My favourite Hotels:
Cornelia Resort,Belek (Side )
Corinthia Club Hotel Tekirova
Hillside Su , Antalya
Club Med Palmiye is nice but many familes with kids
Club Med Kemer is famous for romantic holidays and singles.
Fethiye Hillside is the best Holiday village in Turkey.


We stayed in Corinthia Club Hotel in Tekirova and really enjoyed the beach,forests and the journey to the past..

Do we have a Roman translator?

I wish I understand the language..

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The best holiday spot in entire Mediterranean
  • Cons:Don't choose July and August to go there..
  • In a nutshell:Mountains,Sandy and pebble beaches with blue flags,History,style

    We love spending our summer holidays in Turkey! This year we'd like to go to Kemer instead of Belek and we are hardly trying to find the best resort there:)

    Antalya is one of my favourite places on this planet, even considered finding a place to rent for the winter months. Great pics and tips. Tim

    Awesome Antalya pages. Too bad you can not join us Saturday night in Chicago for Turkish food at Al La Turka. You will be there in spirit though.
