Sweeping sandy beaches that shelve gently into the warm water, historical ruins virtually on your doorstep, friendly people and great cuisine. No wonder Side is my most favourite Turkish resort. You don't have to wander too far before you discover the theatre and temples ruins on the headland of Side.
A return visit to Side in April 2009 found Side much changed.
Busier, more touristic, had lost its village feel, not as free and easy when waiters constantly ask if you want to come in for a drink or a meal at their restaurant - not necessary when on an all-inclusive deal. We were glad the hotel was so good, this time around it was more of a relaxing hotel based holiday with a couple of sojourns out for exploring the surrounding area.
- Pros:beach, history, food, friendly people
- In a nutshell:great holiday destination
A wonderful stay at this fabulous hotel, thoroughly enjoyed being spoilt here. Truly worth its 5 star and for once... more travel advice
This pic shows jsut what a ruined state the theatre was in and all the stone remants just littering the ground outside.... more travel advice
