It is Turkish lira. They will accept euros or sterling if you have it but there is no point in exchanging sterling to euros to take to Turkey.

When people write reviews they often refer to prices in Stg or Euro as that makes more sense to them and better informs the reader who may not be familiar with the local currency. The local currency is always more acceptable but for shopping etc most will accept other major currencies but be sure to check what rate they are offering to make sure it is in your favour.

Change a little money to lira for when you arrive and then change the rest in the resort. It is much easier to bargain in Lira.
