This was a last minute booking my partner and I not really sure where we wanted to go - were thinking about the Canaries mainly for the weather but did not fancy 'Brits Abroad' and suggested to the travel agent "something different". The travel agent suggested we consider the deal on offer from Neilson for Club Adakoy, Marmaris, Turkey. I was slightly apprehensive as had stayed in Icmeler some 28 years ago visiting Marmaris on a day trip and not really enjoying the hustle and bustle. I was assured, however, that Club Adakoy was a 20 minute water taxi ride from Marmaris, on its own secluded island and a holiday with a 'difference' involving opportunity to partake in a variety of watersports and other activities - we decided to give it a go and booked for the very last week of the 2013 season.
On arrival at the Adakoy resort we were greeted by friendly and professional Neilson staff. Throughout our week's stay we learned that nothing really was too much trouble for either the Neilson staff or for the Turkish waiters, bar and catering staff. The holiday was a great success and we took part in activities and sporting events that we would never have dreamed of engaging in back home. We enjoyed tennis lessons, sailing lessons, kayaking, mountain biking, a multitude of keep fit classes and gym sessions as well as relaxing by the pool (on the odd occasion when we weren't involved in other activities) as well as enjoying a couple of treatments including an Indian Head Massage and a back massage in the resort Spa.
The food served in the restaurant was of a very high standard and the variety immense. We really enjoyed the selection of wonderful salads as well as the fresh meat and fish. Not once did we find any reason to complain about any of the meals.
The accommodation was clean and well equipped. The rooms were cleaned daily and towels changed each day. Our only small 'niggle' was that some noise travelled from adjoining apartments and, being on a ground floor, the noise from those above us although not really to an extent to complain about
So, do we recommend Neilson activity holidays? - yes most definitely.
Do we recommend Club Adakoy, Marmaris, Turkey - yes most certainly
Would we return - yes - we had a wonderful holiday, met some wonderful people and enjoyed a week in one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited.
