Firstly, let me say the sea pearl is clean, the rooms are well serviced tand the food is pretty good. I went with two single lads on the look out for some fun and sight seeing along with great weather. While the weather was fine, Kusadasi lefta sour taste in my mouth.
Hotel prices are about double what you should for similar item in kusdasi, and sometime more. Drink prices are similar to Ireland. although a whiskey or brandy will set you back around €11, and no im not joking!
The entertainment is very poor. The only thing worth seeing was the traditional turkish dancers, after that it was ad hoc comedy by the staff and and middle of the road singers. thusday night was bingo night! no more need be said....
The local buses are great, very cheap. the taxis are very scary, most cars do not have back seat belts and the cars are very old so there is no protection from crashes. Anyone with a child should be very carefull.
Food can be expensive in Kusadasi itself, Toursists can epect to pay close to a what a meal at home would cost(ireland). Watch out for the sea food, i got poisoning twice from two seperate restaurants. The pubs are few and far between. the only street in the town where pubs can be found is bart street. and the only bar that get s a good crowd is Jimmies bar. in here you can expect to find Young Mothers with babies at 3 o clock in the morning, drunk irish girls willing to be treated like meat by the bar staff. on more than 1 occassion i seen girls felt up, getting there asses slapped and being filled with drink by the barmen and staff.
so to sumerise:
Not for singles, unless your a girl with no self respect.
Not for parents unless everywhere else was booked up, and even then id think twice.
not for people who want to experience some turkish culture, even the turkish bath experience has been changed, its now a cattle mart where youyr treated like a no.
not for anyone who like long sandly clean beaches, Ladies beach, the closest to the hotel, is filthy, tiny and over crowded with people and deck chairs.
and not for people who want value for there money.
As promised, i will say this, The China garden restaurant, adn the Mona Lisa restaurant on ladies beach are top class, excellent staff, great value for money and a pleasant experience all round.
Would i go back? No way.
