I was rather dubious about staying at this hotel. Some of our party were on a very limited budget and we booked through Lowcostholidays at an excellent price. The hotel is 3* and has no lift, however, I am sure if it did have a lift the price would also increase.
The rooms are of a very good size and are absolutely spotlessly clean. The beds are comfortable and the shower is good. There is plenty of hanging space in the wardrobe and there is a fridge in which two bottles of water were placed and replenished as they were used.
You can see right into the kitchen which, again, looked very clean. The bread is made in front of guests so there is nothing to hide. Breakfast basically consists of bread and eggs, cereal. Lunch is superb every day. The evening meal I didn't enjoy so much but that's just me. The weather was extremely hot and the air conditioning in the room was most welcome. Personally, I think you can't go wrong by staying at the Aral. It was a perfect introduction to Turkey and Side is a very nice place to visit. There is plenty of shopping and culture in equal measure.
Jimmy is excellent for booking trips. We visited the green canyon - a wonderful day out and I would recommend it. Visit the ruins also whilst there.
The bar is basic but the staff are excellent and very hard working. The area where you take your meals is outside and is cleaned thoroughly every day ALL day. Standards are high.
I would stay here again. I would recommend this hotel. There is also a free shuttle bus to and from the beach - another bonus.
