We (family of 5 inc 7yr old) arrived at approx 5am following the rubbish Thomas Cook flights. You cant see much at that time in the morning. However, after a nap we awoke to amazing sunsine and intense heat, which is to be expected in August! The apartments were very spacious albeit pretty basic. They were generally clean and tidy. Great for a "base" and a place to sleep. We went self catering and to be honest, there really isnt enough "kit" in the apartments to do this effectively (you have to hire a toaster) and just 2 cooking rings (great fridge though), but this didnt matter as eating out was cheap and the food was excellent everywhere. The pools were great and clean, beach is v hot! We all had a lovely time. I had been very worried prior to going given some of the horrific reviews I had read, but once there I was able to relax and enjoy myself. There was nothing inherently wrong with Mellissa Gardens, just basic and not as up to date as you would perhaps like. For a place to rest and sleep, no problems. There is on site entertainment every other night and although we didnt partake, we could see everyone having a good time from our balcony just above the bar area. Noise levels were nothing like I had read about. Yes there was music noise in the evening from the bar area, but what do you expect......people are on hoiliday having a good time. It wasnt too loud or intrusive at all and in some ways you can find a bit of noise comforting? Turkish people were absolutely lovely, very friendly without overstepping the mark. They love it if you learn a few basic Turkish words and they are great with Kids, took a couple of days to get your head around that aspect, but again thats more of a refection on our society rather than theirs. If you are after a cheap holiday, no frills, clean, safe, good food, friendly people and plenty of sun, then I think you could do a lot worse. Thanks Melissa Gardens, my first trip to Turkey was a sucess and thoroughly enjoyable.
