We like medium sized resorts but not 18-30s style resorts, not too bothered about culture but don't want every bar full of groups of teenagers getting pissed. Would prefer to be able to walk to a resort as opposed to having to drive to get anywhere.
Any resort recommendations? Anywhere to avoid?
Sorry so vague but am finding the brochures a bit confusing.
I got back from Antalya (Lara Beach) a month ago and it was fab but not a 'resort' as such. The hotels are mostly massive all-inclusive jobs along the beach with nowt much else apart from that. It suited us though, but we would have liked somewhere nice to go for long walks etc.
We did do a trip to Kemer and it's LOVELY! Beautiful beach, lovely town with lots of attractive shops, nice restaurants, very clean and tidy etc. Went during the day but it defo didn't look like a young persons piss up type of place. It's about 40 minutes from Antalya airport.
Try Akyaka[also called Gokova] in Turkey, small seaside village,1 hour from dalaman airport, with sandy blue flag beach and shallow sea.It's more of an older person/young family place as not enough for teenagers to do. No loud bars, plenty of places to eat,but no Sunday lunch or english bars. There are little boats on the river selling turkish food, transport to get around, tractor and trailor!!!! Anatolian sky, Thomas cook and H4U go but it's just as easy to arrange holiday for yourself...and cheaper. Anyone going with children childcare is provided in village by an english lady with childcare qualifications and police check etc. If anyone wants anymore info just ask....
