All Inclusive or Half Board

Given the great value of the Turkish lira and my first visit to oludeniz I'm not sure if I should do HB or AI this summer. I'm also thinking that AI might mean not experiencing the local restaurants.

Any help is really appreciated.

Go B&B then you can sample all the delights and with so many choices of food and Restaurants you can't go wrong.

Plus your not tied to fixed meal times and you'll be spreading your business around which will be much appreciated by the locals.

B&B, venture out, you will not be disappointed. Plus if you fancy eating at your hotel they all do deals anyway.

Depends on the price really, if you get a cheap Ai as we did last year then just use it for breakfast /snacks and drinks round the pool then eat out on a night... If not then b and b as you won't want to miss out on all the great restaurants

We go B&B as all the other posters have said there ere lots of fabulous restaurants to try and not tied down to set meal times.

Also as you have said in one of your other posts your partner does not drink so may not be able to take full advantage of the included beverages.

I would stay in OD and tae your partner to the Olive garden at Kabak for a romantic night away

We always go all inclusive but eat and drink out most of the time....main reasons as follows: we use it as a base... the prices we checked before booking weren't much more for 2 weeks all inclusive than self catering / B & B etc.....with this we got no under occupancy charge, free air con, free safe, some form of food any time of the day (and not at set times depending on hotel ratings) ice cream and drinks at the pool if we stay by it or before we go out at night....also we get to try the Turkish food first to see if we like it instead of paying for a meal and not enjoying it... And if we do happen to spend up we know we can still eat and drink. We have been several times and don't think we've missed out by going all inclusive as we think of it as 'best of both worlds'.
