This resort, as it says in other reviews, is quite remote, however, if you like a nice quiet place to relax, this is it. Our villa was lovely, but at the top end of the resort, so quite a trek down to the pools and restaurants every day. Transfer from airport can take up to an hour in a taxi which I would advise but the taxis take a short cut over the mountain roads, and, if like me you are not a good traveller, remember to bring the sick bags from the plane with you. TOP TIP ask the driver to take you the main road way and not the mountain route, we did this on the way back and even though it took a bit longer, 10-15 mins, it was much more smoother.
DOWN SIDE The on site restaurant is expensive and doesn't have a lot of choice for children, chips chips and chips. The on site shop is over priced and doesn't stock a lot of choice.
UP SIDE. the spa is good and you will pay about the same as in England, the pools are lovely, but were very cold (our trip was the last week in October) so we tended to swim in the sea more as it was warmer. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Beds are very hard, but just ask for mattress toppers if they are to uncomfortable for you.
We used the Dolmush to get around and if you like an adventure, its quite easy to do. We travelled to Soke and Didum using the Dolmush and it was quite cheap.
The markets in Akbuk and Didum are good, but if you want cheap, good quality clothing then travel to Soke to the outlet stores. Better quality and the real thing and you will probably only pay a fiver more than the markets. The markets are great for fresh fish, fruit and vegetables and very cheap. Be sure to check your bags before you leave though, as if they are busy you might yourself coming away with someone else's fish, as we did. Would recommend the boat trip to Didum and whilst you are there, get a taxi and visit Appollos Temple, stunning. Best meal we had was a traditional Turkish meal at Romeos in Didum. Be warned, you will be made to dress up and dance a traditional Turkish dance in the street before you eat, fab experience.
Would I go again, yes I would.
