The Zeybek Hotel in Turunc is a really nice hotel. It has limited reviews on this hotel, which is a shame as far as value for money goes it is well worth the stay. Before our visit I emailed the hotel to ask for an upper floor, which only has 2. I got a prompt response saying okay and reserved. The room was on the 2nd(top) floor, and was over looking the sea which was about 10mtrs away. The room is basic which is why it probably has a 2 star rating, but at the end of the day why pay extra for something you only sleep in. The room was spacious on the top, with a double wardrobe with shelf inside. There was only anther storage area between the beds with 1 draw. The bathroom was adequate with a proper toilet and descent shower, giving a good flow of water, although the temperature changed at different times of the day. But who wants a red hot shower when you have baked all day on the beach. The aircon costs you £30 a week, and safe box is £10 a week. The room was cleaned every single day, and the towels were changed every 2 days. We only tried the hotel food at lunchtime, which was good value as at night they only offered a buffet menu. A large efes beer was 5lira which at our rate worked out at £1.87 a pint. There seemed to be no difference at any bar in turunc. Cocktails varied between 10/12 lira. There were many restaurants to eat in. You always have favorites and ours was the Sahin out of front hotel 1st on the right, and the Korfez out of hotel beach side turn right and last restaurant on the right( massive portions) A bottle of wine worked out at 25-30 lira, whilst a glass was 7 lira. The resort is fantastic for families, couples etc. It is not a massive busy place, but flat and something for all ages. The trip from Icemeler is extremely windy so be aware.The dolmus costs 2.5 lira, but you can get the taxi boat for 5 lira and keep your stomach in tact. Well worth a visit is Amos beach and Kamubulc. Both can be reached by walking ( Not recommended). Amos is 5km we tried it and lost 10 stone in sweat. Get the taxi boat which costs 5 lira each way. There is a restaurant at the beach so you can get food, which again is not over priced. Boat trips are available from £10 which has the entire population of turunc on, or Ibrahim who works at the hotel has a brother with a proper gullet boat. He charges £30, but a max of 12 people, and you choose from a choice of food for lunch before you go. The food was amazing value, you will be absolutely stuffed. Ibrahim,s brother is Chetic (captain). He even caught an octopus and put it on you for pictures. Even though it was more expensive it was much better then being crammed on a boat with 100+ others, and Chetic seemed to go to different places where the normal tourist boat didn't. If you want to go by taxi boat to nearby Icemeler or Marmaris, then it costs 15 lira return, but a real nice trip, with some of the boat owners fishing on the way catching tuna.All in all if you want 5 star luxury then you pay for it. If you want a good clean room, towels and bedding. No rip of beach prices, and by the way FREE SUNBEDS on the beach. Good value for money then give it a try.One thing I should mention is it is near a mosc, which goes off at 5am for about 5mins. Top tip is to drink lots of wine/ spirits and like me, I never really heard it. I have put some photos of the resort which were taken early in a morning. Hope this review helps you make a decision, but as I said, it is on the beach, in the town near to everything and no hills.
