Just had a two week holiday in the Royal Dragon Hotel, Side. My husband didn't want to come so I braved it with my 15 and 11 year old. We were very pleased with the plush feel of the hotel - so much space in the foyer and surrounding bar areas... The water slides were used every day as was the beach, beach bar disco, indoor disco and the theatre. The sea was a perfect temperature and there were always plenty of free sunbeds with awnings above to lie in the shade.
Both of my children found friends, so were kept busy and happy - we went to the theatre together every evening and thought that the animation team put on a good show consistently. In the evening we went on to the beach bar disco, and the lovely belly dancing Ucha kept me company - it's not what it sounds like - but we did become friends so thank you Ucha for being so much fun. My teenager then went on to the midnight to 3am disco with her new possy - a mixed bunchof teenagers from several different countries - and I felt safe in the knowlege that she was in the hotel and having fun.
The hotel was always being cleaned and the food was really good but my younger daughter got a tummy bug for two days and was sick and I had a funny tum for a few days so we left off the salads.
We did an organised trip with First Choice to the nearby amphitheatre and Roman baths and had an amazing guide who was very knowledgeable. We also went white water rafting for a day which was really good fun. We ventured into Side once but wanted to spend the rest of the time at the hotel as it was so nice.
All in all, a very successful holiday - thankyou to the animation team (esp. Ucha!) and I think I'll have a fight on my hands if I want to go anywhere else next year.
