This was our first REAL family holiday abroad with our three little boys aged 6, 4 & 1! We booked the Aydos based on the recommendation of my dad (who has been there 4 times & he is hard to please so we knew it had to be good!) We were expecting a bit of a nightmare journey & then a week of being extra vigilant for all the dangers that little boys seem to be drawn to when in a new place! However, we had an amazing time at the Aydos Club. We were greeted at the airport by one of the friendly Simpson Reps who whisked us off to our private air conditioned transfer & chilled bottles of water. The hotel is set in lovely grounds & the staff are all very friendly and approachable. They were great with our boys and couldn't do enough to help. Rahmi the owner is always on hand to answer questions or organise any thing you need.
Our accomodation was great - the duplex rooms have all recently renovated. The rooms are bright and cleaned every day. There was plenty of space for all 5 of us and the air conditioning was very efficient - keeping us all cool especially during our afternoon siestas. The only downside is that the rooms aren't the most child friendly environment. There are steep stairs up to the first floor room and the upstairs balcony door did not have a lock on it. We did warn our boys not to open the door if we weren't with them. There is a lovely swimming pool, baby pool, bar area & peaceful gardens where you can sit or sunbathe. The river is a minutes walk from the pool & our kids loved watching the boats go past or the fish swimming in the water. The hotel is an easy 15 minute walk (at toddler speed!) from the busy town were there are plenty of restaurants, shops and bars.
Food in the hotel is very good. There is quite a large continental style selection available for breakfast and each morning they alternate between pancakes or omlettes made freshly to order. Try the pancakes with honey & pistachios! We enjoyed the buffet on our first night (mixed meze & BBQ grilled chicken or fish) and had a few lunches from the bar (which we usually ate on the river side). Breakfast & Dinner are all eaten in the open air beside the pool.
