As a single older lady I felt secure and comfortable at the Ephesia, staff were all very nice without being intrusive, the hotel and rooms are spotless, pool area and gardens well maintained and plenty of sunbeds both by the pool and on the beach. Food was plentiful and a good variety , afternoon tea on the terrace overlooking the beach was a nice touch and very enjoyable. The weather was apparently warmer than usual for mid October (up to 32 degrees) which suited me fine. Don't miss a trip to Ephesus, the best preserved Roman site in the area. There were a large number of German guests in the hotel (a lot more than Brits) but all very pleasant and friendly. The evening "entertainment " was a bit of a joke (except for the folk dancers who were very good) but the team worked hard during the day with daft sports etc. All in all I was sorry to leave and wished I had booked the fortnight.
