What a fantastic atmosphere!
This hotel is all about family and fun.. The staff treated us and our kids as they would their own loved ones. The kids got lots of complimentary treats and, a year on, still haven't forgotten their many new uncles..
Great weekly entertainment that is appropriate for ALL age groups in-spite of the time of day..
The rooms are basic but clean and it's well worth signing on for the ALL INCLUSIVE or HALF BOARD dining option as there's very few options that are as good.
A great plus for families is the attached WATERPARK! My husband, in particular, loved this.
The hotel is set in Ovacik/Hisoranou but only a very cheap and quick bus ride away from the main tourist areas of Olu Deniz and Fetiye Bay..
Worthwhile sites include Patara Beach, Kaya Koy (Ghost Town) and the mountain retreat of Yaka Park Restaurant, only minutes from the TLOS RUINS.. Don't be tempted to try the newer copy cats.. Make the drive straight to the top of the mountain and turn LEFT. The real Yaka Park is an outdoor venue.
Also recommended is the Dalyan boat trip to Turtle Bay.. Amazing ruins and wildlife on offer. If you get the chance, definitely try the freshly caught/grilled BLUE CRAB on offer from local villagers scouring the waters.. :)
