From the start to the end, this holiday was super.
We were in room 529, at the top of the top of the complex in a lovely CLEAN room, they are not massive by an means but why do you need a HUGE room?? You only shower and sleep there!
We woke up the first morning and could easily get a sunbed by the "sun and chill" pool. Lovely pool, so clear and very cold!! You need it in 40' heat though.
The whole hotel is surrounded by mountains making it so picturesque as the sun rises from behind them every morn.
Breakfast...good selection (no bacon or sausage though!)
Lunch...lovely selection of food, different every day.
Dinner...one night we had a man doing a shish kebab, this was amazing...so lovely!!!
One night they were doing stir fry, another night they had the most amazing leg of lamb that just fell off the bone.
Along with all the other lovely foods they had.
All inclusive drinks are good, the free alcoholic drinks include Brandy, gin, wine, beer, vodka and their local spirit Raki...(wow this is strong but try it!)
Soft drinks all day...coke, lemonade, fruit juices, coffee, tea etc.
Snacks between 3.30-5...pizza, chips, cakes, hot dogs and then midnight soup 11.30pm-midnight!
So no you can't ever be hungry!
We went on a trip organised by Thomson which was Fethiye by night. We got picked up at 6 on a small bus, taken to the small beautiful town of Fethiye and did a 1/2-45min boat trip to go and watch the sunset...it was absolutely beautiful. This sunset is world famous apparently. We then went back to the harbour, and walked to the local fish market where you choose your fish from a deli....caught fresh that day!!...then the chefs cook it up for you. For a whole red snapper, and a whole sea bass, breads, massive salad, chips, 1 water and one wine, it was 80 TL, about £28!!
Amazing!! We then had time to look round the shops and we were taken back to the hotel at midnight. (£15 for trip but does get booked up!)
We did go to St Nicholas beach which is the beach the hotel offer for free (pick up 10.30 from hotel, come back at 4.30)
Beach so lovely and warm...very salty so you just float.
15 TL for 2 sunbeds (£2.50 each) and 15TL for an hour of pedalo (great fun!)
We then spent most of our days lazing by the pool (quiet pool) lilos are allowed but buy in England if you can. Quite expensive there! At beach much cheaper, less then half the price than in hotel shop!
If you're thinking of booking greenland...do it!
Great value for money and fab hotel.
So sad to be home!!!
