Antalya/ Hotel and Nightlife

Hi guys,

I'm hoping someone might be able to help as the hotel we are staying in hasn't been too forthcoming with answering my questions about the area.

I am organizing a 4 day trip to Antalya this October with 15 other people. We are staying at the Starlight Convention Center Thalasso. My questions are:

* How far away is the hotel from Antalya airport, any recommendations on transport for large groups?

* What would be the closest city for a good night out, lively club, bar restaurant recommendation would be greatly appreciated?

* We would like a day trip or some kind of activity (thinking of a boat trip) to keep 15 lads entertained, somewhere thats less than an hour away from the hotel ideally?

Many thanks in advance,


Woking, United...

The Starlight Convention Center is in Kizilagac which is about 15 minutes drive to Manavgat and from there a further 15 minutes to Side - one hour from Antalya airport. Side would be the nearest place for a bit of night life, although Manavgat is pretty during the day with the bridge and little boats beneath it.

Side has lots of bars restaurants and shops as well as the 2nd longest sandy beach in all of Turkey - turtles - a Saturday market too. Manavgat has a market on Mondays and Thursdays.

You would probably enjoy white water rafting in the nearby Taurus mountains at 20 Euros each for the day including lunch - Try local guide Abdullah on 0090-538-9213-468 - - he can arrange pıck up for free at your hotel gates - tell him your hotel is in Kizilagac though.

For airport transfer email graham@siderivieraproperties.com

If you take the dolmus from your hotel to the bridge at Manavgat, take a boat trip to the Manavgat waterfalls and have lunch at the trout farm on the way - lovely peaceful day out -
