Not long been back from a 1 week stay at Whispering Sands in Kusadasi. What an excellent place!
Me & my girlfriend arrived in the early hours of the morning where we were greeted and cases taken to our room. We had a walk down to the bar which was seemingly closed but the friendly barmen opened it for us to have a drink.
The apartment itself was extremely clean and very spacious. It had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen and living room area. Air conditioning within the two bedrooms and living room was superb when we used it!
The balcony was pretty big, our apartment was facing the sea so we were lucky enough to see the amazing Kusadasi sunsets whilst enjoying a cool drink. Truly a great site (see pic!)
Kitchen had all the essentials we needed to cook. pans, cutlery, cups, plates etc. Also had a great modern oven and washing machine which was handy!
I must note that the shower was particularly impressive as usually when on holiday it’s a slow drip at best but this was very powerful!
The pool area was spacious and clean with more than enough sunbeds so not a problem there atall.
I've read a few reviews where people suggested the WiFi wasn't the best and could only get coverage in and around the bar / pool area. I was picking it up in my apartment which wasn't the closest to the bar area but worked fine all week round for me!
We stocked up on essentials from the local supermarket which was around 10 minutes walk from the apartments (got a taxi back).
We ate lunch most probably every day we were at Whispering Sands. There was a good choice, very tasty and as per the drinks reasonably priced.
We never actually ate at the restaurant in the evenings but it always looked nice.
We ate out every night either in the center of Kusadasi or at Ladies Beach. A lot of the restaurants done a pickup and drop off service so that was pretty handy. Otherwise we’d just get a bus from the apartment into the middle of town for around 70p per person. The #1 bus back would always drop us around 150 yards from Whispering Sands so location was not a problem atall.
When it came to home time we were not due to leave for the airport until 1700, we were told it was OK to stay in the apartment (at no extra cost) until then as it was not being checked into by anyone else that day.
All the staff at Whispering Sands were extremely friendly. Liam and Tony were very approachable and always on hand if we had any questions on places to eat / drink, supermarkets, etc... Both great guys!
Overall, really loved the place, will recommend to all my friends & family and hope to return next year!
