Arrived very early in the morning 3.00 am, night porter brought our baggage in and firstly showed one couple to their room, then gave us safe key and air conditioner remote and carried our bags to our room and stated we could pay for the safe and air conditioning in the morning as we were shattered. Rooms clean and plenty of room for clothes. We had a double bed and a single bed which were comfy enough I asked for a extra pillow the day after which was there that afternoon. We had plenty of sockets in room which is always helpful with a 13 year old and all her gadgets. We were booked in for bed and breakfast and the breakfast was the normal Turkish, boiled egg, bread, jam, cucumber tomatoes, spam two sorts of cheese one being goats cheese - I quite like them however my partner prefers English which you could get at the hotel for 12 lira however if you looked around you could get cheaper however we never tried. The hotel has several nights when they put entertainment on , quiz night, Turkish night, pool party, we attended all of these which we thoroughly enjoyed. My daughter made alot of friends very family orientated hotel. The bar staff and waiters were great good fun and the majority spoke very good English. Ken whom is English is also very helpful, explaining what's on in the hotel and if you had any problems could also help to sort them out, however we never required this of him. There are quite a few restaurants in walking distance a good choice, the garden restaurant is very good - lovely food and not badly priced - if your looking for Turkish only there is a restaurant we were recommended with a number after if which is apparently good value for money and the food great this is on the opposite side of the hotel to the left you cannot miss it.
The free bus to the beach is great, free sunbeds and yes they wish for you to purchase something but you tell me when you get something for nothing I have never had that anywhere else in Turkey.
We did however encounter the ladies of the night, i have to say first night couldn't stop watching them but after that didn't bother. The police made arrests a few nights so towards the latter of our week the numbers had dwindled rapidly - think they had found someone new to stand. They don't come into the hotel grounds however stand on the pavement outside and never bothered us at all.
We have paid more on previous holidays and i have to say not been made as welcome, not mithered at all by the staff and left to enjoy our holiday as we wished.
Many thanks to the staff at Selge especially mojo and sadie .
Side is a beautiful place, very historic, beautiful beach, old harbour and new are lovely some beautiful shops and very hot and humid in July and August. Bonus no mosquitoes and very few flies if they bother you.
