I booked my last minute holiday for myself and my daughter. I was amazed of the price of only £354 for both of us for the week. On arrival to the Merve Sun, I was introduced to the manager whom showed me and my daughter to our room. It was so clean and tidy, but at 3am all i wanted to do was go to sleep, my daughter had other plans been only 10yrs old.
The next day I decided i would just stay around the pool and local shop area. Which we meet some great people here.
The Merve Sun itself was amazing, clean and every staff member was so helpful in any way they can. My daughter often got a free ice cream, fruit cocktails and milkshake when she fluttered her lashes a few times at the staff haha i got nothing just smiles lol.
Dinners was Fab we had every time a turkish bread with mint and yogurt sauce and tomato salsa, the Steaks were AMAZING one of the best i have tasted and the Chicken in Diane was nice too.
The hotel offers its own beach and transport if needed, myself and daughter always walked to the beach and again we would be greeted by friendly staff. The Massage man normally walked with us to the beach and made sure we were always looked after. The guys at the beach will do anything for you, if you need your bed moved and a brolly they will go out of their way to do this for you. There is loads of sports you can do from jet skies to banana boats, unfortunitly i couldn't do much as my 10 yr old had better plans, Beach, Sea , Pool and eat lol but next time I am def going to do ALL and drag my hubby across the seas too.
The night life i dont know much about as I didnt go out much only to our bar at the Merve. But I did hear it was amazing and you will have a fab time.
You must visit Side and the Apollo ruins that is a MUST for sure, we went to the Paradise restaurant and the food was ok but i was shocked when i got mash potatoes with my Shish kebab, but very enjoyable indeed. If you can get a table over looking the sea and you may find yourself watching the local cats catching there meal for the night. There is a few shops i would go to but becarefull, some just like to rip you off big time, stick to your guns n dont let it go. Go to Antique spice house my friend Hakan will look after you but please make sure you go lower than he says also but he normally gives in easily too :D
My personal thoughts of this holiday/ hotel was AMAZING, FAB & I am COMING BACK for sure next yr, i will make sure i do a full 2 weeks and not the 1 in the same Apartments.
Anyone going to the Merve Sun please say a Big Hello from Abbie-lee and her mum we miss them all.
