We've booked it Toady!

We are paying our first ever visit to Turkey on June 18th 2013 and we have booked Paloma Renaissance for two weeks.

We have read the reviews, done the research and also found Toadys review from 2009 albeit sometime ago but it sold it.

We plan a trip or two and also chill as I have a demanding job so anyone have any tips about the hotel or trips for kids age during holiday 9 & 7 please kindly advise.

My wife is already wanting a head massage!

Thank you

Derbyshire, United...

Hi BristolCityRed

Wonder where you got the name !!

So pleased that you took the plunge and booked Turkey as I am sure you will love it.

If Steph the resident TC rep at the Paloma is still there then you will find out loads from her as she lives in the area and goes that extra mile ! She was even taking in washing when we stayed, not that we used her service!!

The kids will love the free to use games room and even pool/snooker was free when we stayed and in a separate room near the gym.

There is a really nice but small relax pool with lovely padded sunbeds and a small bar which some think is just for the blocks close by but anyone can use it.

Do take plenty of suncream because the prices in Turkey will make your eyes water !! Your going at a great time of year before it gets to hot ! It should be perfect weather.If you can take some snorkling sets for the kids they will get to see lots of fish.The water in Beldibi is clearer and this area is popular with divers etc !

You can hop on the Dolmus very cheaply and go to Kemer for any shopping you might want and find out market day if you like that sort of trip out.We find once we install ourselves it is hard to tear ourselves away ! The animation team were very good when we stayed but they do change hotels but if you get to know them they will make sure the kids have a great time.

If you dine at the Mexican, it is great there by the ocean and do try the Mariachi beer there, unusual but so refreshing.

There is the all night food area for late night munchies where you can get things like burger and chips etc.

The lunch time food down by the sea is great and food cooked to order so time it right as it is popular. There is also another lunch time buffet in the grounds which turns in to an Al a carte at night.

Have a great holiday and please let me know what you think of our favourite holiday destination ! We went the first time when our son was 5 years old to Tekirova near Kemer and have never looked back since, that was 14 years ago!! Enjoy !

Hi Toady, that sounds great thank you very much. We are all really looking forward to it and the inlaws have just returned from Turkey and had an amazing time so even better.

Roll on June 2013!
