We stayed at Connys Hotel in October 2010 for two weeks - how we wish we were there now !
Everything about the Hotel is 1st class, the hotel only has 12 rooms but what it lacks in size it certainly makes up for in hospitality. Conny and Ad are a charming Dutch couple, who have lived in Side for 18 years and owned various establishments working up to their current hotel which is Excellent. They both make you welcome in their hotel, without being too intrusive from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. The staff at Connys are equally professional and friendly, in particular Ismail, whose attentiveness is second to none. The setting of the hotel is good, with a lovely restaurant where breakfast is served and is used as the excellent and renowned Connys restaurant in the evenings. Don't take it from us, just ask the owners of the local apartments, or anyone who has ever eaten there, this restaurant is No. 1 in Side for good reason. The food, service and setting cannot be beaten in Side, to avoid disappointment book a table before your visit. Ad completes a pick and return service for anyone who requests it from any hotel in Side. you do pay a little more for the food, but it is not expensive by any means considering the quality and standard of the experience. We (3) ate there on at least 3 occasions during our stay and for 3 courses with wine and drinks it cost little more than £25 a head.
Breakfast is typically Turkish with eggs cooked to your liking, toast, meats, fruits, yoghurts, tea/coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice - a full English breakfast is available at a small supplement .
Ad and Conny work tirelessly from the start of the day until the end of the day. They stage a karaoke evening in their bar once a week. This is very relaxed and entertaining as they themselves take part, as do some of their friends. It becomes very international when other nationalities take part throughout the evening.
The rooms are tastefully decorated and all have a roman theme and are named after roman characters. All have air con and safe deposits (at no extra charge), and all have balconies.
The pool area is adequate, but not very large. The pool however, is large enough for a 'workout'. this does not matter as the beach is reachable on foot, but preference is for the free courtesy bus.
We thoroughly recommend Connys, and would not hesitate in making a return visit. In fact I doubt whether we can find another Hotel of such high quality and friendliness anywhere in the world.
