we have just arrived home 23/6/13 from a two week stay at ocakkoy (pronounced od-ju-ku by the locals) and had a wonderful time. our party consisted of 5 adults and 3 children aged 3,4,5 staying in two cottages (22 + 23).We booked direct and chose our cottages and there was no hickups thank god as the wife was panicking ha ha,The cottages are lovely and clean with lemon trees and grape vines growing outside, jack daniels and fresh lemon and ice never tasted so good and I have read reviews saying that they are basic , yes you don't get all the mod cons but in 15 yrs of going to turkey ive never seen more than a kettle and a couple of rings!!!! and the air con is free .The only bad point I could find about the cottages was they could do with having a couch in them ,in ours we sat on the beds. we found the village stunning with twists and turns everywhere leading to different cottages, don't confuse the term " holiday village" with the ones used for all inclusive places they are miles apart ocakkoy is quiet and tranquil with only the noise of the crickets to disturb you. we spent all of our time at kids pool which is great for kids with two shallow pools and a deep pool with a slide in it, the slide gets turned on twice a day but if they don't come to turn it on just ring the bar and they will walk down and do it but there are two other adult only pools. The food in the restaurant was lovely with a large choice of meals and with good service too. If you want a lively place to stay then this is totally the opposite ,there is no music played by the side of the pools and no waiters badgering you if you want a drink, you are left to do what you want to do. If I had one complaint the market/reception does not have much choice and it closes at 6pm so if you want anything after then is a long trip out to get it.We also spent a night at sugar beach (google it) on the lagoon in olu deniz you can rent a wooden hut with double bed/single bed walk in shower for £50 inc breakfast and sunbeds and its well worth it so is getting up to watch the sunrise over the lagoon. In the end ocakkoy for me is a stunning unique place I would recommend to anyone and go back to 10/10 thank you.
