Side Sun is a fantastic hotel which is set in an excellent beachfront location and is very well maintained and looked after. The hotel in itself is faultless however there is only one problem- the hotel is 99.9% German.
After booking this holiday I was aware of this, yet I was not aware of how much of a problem this would turn out to be. The majority of the staff speak no English which can make the most simplest of things difficult i.e. ordering a drink. Went to the bar, asked for 2 beers and got given a lemonade! The entertainment is all in German and the beachfront games can become quite competative to say the least. One day I made the mistake of participating in volleyball, a game I found the Germans took very seriously indeed. Twice daily they que to play botra on the beach and one could be forgiven for thinking it was the World Championships due to the whole seriousness of the event. Quite amusing.
12 & 7 the restaurants open for lunch and tea. Best avoided at these times as the restaurant is absolutley packed with diners too efficiant to wait a little later for their meals.
Oh and one last point- if I never see another pair of Speedo's again it would be too soon!
