Considering just your 9yr old and not yourselves, I would go with Marmaris or rather Icmeler (near enough to Marmaris). I myself would choose Kusadasi, but we are 2 adults. I took my 2 granddaughters to Kusadasi on my own a couple of years back and they were a little bored, so really unless you are going to book somewhere like Aqua Fantasy, then there isn't much for children. I love Kusadasi, but having been to a lot of resorts over 20yrs, in all honesty - if I was taking a 9yr old, I would choose Icmeler or preferably Olu Deniz in both resorts everything going on and situated around the beach (flights much cheaper to Dalaman as well). Nothing to choose between size, restaurants, bars and prices. Hope this helps, I'm not biased between one resort or another, I just love Turkey.

Jackie from Glasgow, you fly into Bodrum, you then have a 2 hour transfer to Kusadasi, after a 4 hour flight it is a bit much for some kids. I think the Marmaris transfer is a bit kinder. I prefer Kusadasi (not surprising), Marmaris feels a lot hotter than Kusadasi.

Hi Jackie - I have visited both Marmaris and Kusadasi. We found Marmaris a large, bustling concrete jungle and just very noisy and busy. I think Kusadasi is a lot nicer, there's Long Beach, also Ladies Beach quite near - the Dolmus mini buses generally go to most places, very cheaply. Theres also an Old Town, and a plethora and shops, bars, cafes & restaurants, etc. Generally we have found there is not an awful lot catered for for children in Turkish resorts. Suggest taking things to do - puzzle books, drawing books, beach ball etc.

Best wishes, Debbie B

Canmom not from Glasgow you can't. It's Bodrum only, you have to travel to Edinburgh and go via Istanbul for Izmir.
