I’m sat here at work wishing I was sat at the bar in Bitez!
The perfect blend of hotel, staff and guests really went together beautifully to make this the most enjoyable holiday my partner and I have had.
Our room was not large, but was clean and comfortable, with a daily visit from the maid and well ventilated so the temperature was bearable when returning from a day on the beach. Being Scottish I find walk-in freezers a little on the warm side, but the air-conditioning worked a treat and wasn’t overly noisy when left on overnight.
The bar, usually manned by the hotel manager Murat (apologies if that’s misspelled!) is ideal for the size of the hotel, and priced inline with the rest of the Bitez. We arrived from a damp and dismal UK at about 8pm to be greeted by a great group of the hotel guests having a drink before dinner. Everyone said hello and made us feel immediately welcome.
Because of the small size of the hotel you see all of the other guests with such regularity, on the beach, at the restaurants, even waving as we passed each other on separate Jeep Safaris that you cannot help but become friends! Or perhaps we were just lucky! Either way, we twice ended up going to the nearby Yali Meyhanesi as a group of about 16 and enjoying a great night of Turkish food and Irish songs!
The beach is a three minute walk away. All of the sun-beds are free but you’re expected to use the connected restaurant’s facilities, which is a fair trade. We stayed in the Regal hotel’s area and their waiting service was absolutely fine; almost always available but not overbearing.
Overall, I cannot recommend Small World, and Bitez enough. If you are looking for a relaxing, summer holiday this is the place.
Thank you Small World, and the fantastic bunch of people we met. We’ll be back!
