We stayed 10 days at the Barut Arum hotel. It is well positioned with a 40 minute walk into Side, some people say 20 mins but its not. The walk is along a paved wide flat walkway which is lit up at night an perfectly safe.
The hotel was faultless. The food excellent, we were half board. The presentation was 1st class, there were chefs and managers on the floor at all times welcoming you. Our room was on the sixth floor well designed, apart from no drawer space! Also probably one of the smallest rooms which was a shame as we were there for 10 days.
We did a jeep safari booked through Thompson which was good but over priced you can get the same trip booked in Side for half the price. We did another 2 trips booked in Side to a Hamman which was excellent also had a facial and threading done. The other trip was to the Sapadere Canyon full day for 30 euros including lunch and visit to Antalya.
The resort is predominantly German tourists and the Turks speak more German than English but they manage to communicate quite well with the Brit minority.
Entertainment at the hotel was ok.
You can catch a dolmus bus outside the hotel or anywhere along the road for 2 lire into Side. We also went to Manavgat to see the waterfall you need to get second bus from Manavgat to waterfalls outside Burger King there are usually men there to help you.
Overall very good holiday lots to see and do. A trip into the mountains is well worth it to get a different slant on the area.
