what times do the dolmus run Conakli-Side

We are looking to stay at the Alba Royal in Conakli in May next year and we were wondering what time the dolmus buses stop running in the evening.

You need to walk up to the main road from your hotel and 5 mins more tothe Alba Queen where the taxi rank is to get a dolmus into Side. They run every 15 minutes in May each year and the journey will take about 15 to 20 minutes to the Otogar (bus station) of Side. Cost - about 1 uk pound - then when you get to Otogar, walk through the passageway selling trinkets and souvenirs and you will see a small hut selling tickets for the tractor train (looks like Noddy and Big Ears train!) for just 0.75 Lire (cost this year anyway-may be moreby next year perhaps?) -then hop on there and you will have the best 5 to 10 mins ride through ruins on either side of you to the main High Street of Side where the ampitheatre will be on your left. Walk down High Street to harbour area, passing lots and lots of shops, and walk left to Apollo Temple - best seen at sunset. Just the other side of harbour and Apollo is Paradise Restaurant where - if you walk down back staircase into the rocks - you can sit on tables and chairs actually on the rocks and watch the cats jump in for fish dinner, with Apollo as your backdrop. Fabulous chilling out place.

Dolmuses from Colaklı (say - Chow-Lack-Lee) stop at 10pm going out of Colakli but not until midnight from Side to Colaklı AT PRESENT... but things here in Side seem to change by the minute! ... so best to check next year to be absolutely certain.
