Kids no longer want to come on holiday,where to go?
Somewhere to relax, unwind ,peaceful and be in beautiful surroundings!!
My wife and i came up trumps, a warm turquoise sea , a landscape and coastline of stunning beauty,a mix of friendly people and a hotel that treats you as a family member.
The Maviay is a basic 2 star hotel , rooms were cleaned daily with regular changes of towels and bed linen.We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis for two weeks so as to appreciate some of the local restaurants,the Merhaba and Siesta to name two, out of many offering fresh local produce with the majority of food cooked freshly.
Meals are great value, watch out for the price of a bottle of wine though, anything between £15-£18 , with not a great selection.A beer similarly priced to UK.
The relatively high prices are down to the Government putting a high duty on alcohol,mainly wine and spirits.
The Maviay also offers evening meals, those we had were very good, but we felt the choice was limited, as was breakfast, however the ever accommodating Ishmet/Carol and staff were only to willing to help if they could with optional meals.
A must is to go on the boat trips, these can be arranged through the hotel. We went on two and one of the best ways to experience and appreciate the coastline, amazing landscape and that turquoise sea.Watch out for Queen Victoria in rock!!
The freshest fish you are ever likely to taste is cooked on board with Captain Erdell and his wife looking after you on the Kamsal boat.
Two of our most enjoyable days were on the Kamsal, but in the resort of Andrasan you can not fail to relax and enjoy the surroundings, either on the sandy beach swimming in the warm sea or relaxing round the Maviay pool enjoying a drink at the pool side bar with Ishmet , host of hosts,his son Mochi and Carol all making sure your stay however short or long is an enjoyable experience.
A car is not necessarily a must but worth a consideration in order to explore the incredible scenery and ancient history , Phaselis and Olympos the two closest historical sites. If your a trekker or enjoy walking one of the worlds top walking trails, the Lycian Way, runs adjacent to the Maviay.
This location at present is unspoiled and pretty much uncommercialised , and long may it remain so. Chilling and relaxation are the words for the Maviay and Adrasan where life goes at its own pace in this beautiful and stunning location.
The Maviay Hotel and Adrasan area are well worth visiting, we will revisit and many do on a regular basis
