My partner and I stayed recently for 4 nights at the Orka Sunlife. We both left, wishing we had booked longer.
It's a beautifully designed resort, set high in the hills overlooking Ölüdeniz.
The resort has a wide range of excellent facilities. The pool area is large, with a separate kids area and 5 water slides in a section off to the side. These are only open at certain times.
There are several bars, including one which is open 24hrs a day. As with most all inclusive options, the drinks are 'local' beer, wine and spirits, however there are more premium options which are chargeable. We found the selection more than satisfactory.
The main restaurant area is a decent size, and there are different options each day, as well as some which are the same. There are many Turkish dishes available, so why not give them a try. It does get busy however the staff are efficient, and you are also able to eat poolside if you prefer.
The spa is excellent and we both enjoyed a traditional hamam (Turkish Bath) and also a spa treatment. This took 2 hours and was a nice treat.
There are shows on at night at the "Orka Theatre" and also pool side activities during the day.
There is plenty to keep you busy or else just lay back and enjoy the beautiful weather, surrounded by stunning scenery.
I found most of the guests were British, and also quite a few Turkish families.
I have read reviews on here that the staff don't speak English very well. The truth is, some do, some have limited knowledge. If you actually try to have a conversation with them, you'll find they come from all over Turkey, some from small towns and villages. If you try to use a few words of Turkish yourself, it's greatly appreciated by them.
Special mention goes to Erol in the restaurant, Haydar at the pool bar and GM Turgay who were all very kind to us during our stay.
This was my first time to Turkey, and I have nothing but praise and admiration for this beautiful country and it's people
