The only trouble with the Montana Pine is that it is a little out of the way, although yes the scenery is gorg. If you prefer to be within 2 mins walking distance of the centre of OD then perhaps a good hotel like Belkekiz Beach, Olu Deniz Resort, or Sun City would suit you better. Each of thesel is AI and very good. Depends what you want really. Monatana Pine is suituated up a steep hill, OK going down but coming back,.............

The Montana Pine is set back from the main road (giving it a more exclusive feel) and offers exquisite views. It's the best hotel in Hisaronu (it isn't actually in Olu Deniz - that's a 2-minute drive down the road) and has free buses to take you down to the beach - and to bring you back.

You can also pick up a dolmus from the end of the drive, or take one of the taxis' which are always outside the main entrance.

One of the bonuses of being further up the mountain is the cooler air, and the wonderful views.

Although Olu Deniz is beautiful, you don't appreciate it as much as when you're looking down on it from above.

What are the prices like in olu, sorry if it has already been discussed but I swear I saw somewhere that it was around 40p for a pint? I may be wrong.

Is it really cheap like that though please get back to me, Thanks.

Hi Mattb,

A large Efes can cost anyhting between 3.50 and 5TL depending on the bar. So between £1.50 and £2.00 - depending on the exchange rate.

hi mattb22

DO NOT buy tobacco or cigs from turkey they will be fake and will do your health in worse than the real stuff, that is why the duty free is open as you arrive in the country to buy your tobacco and cigs

if you must buy cigs only do it when they have the goverment yellow stamp on the packet

when we were in olu in may it was 6 lira a large bottle of effes

seems actually more expensive than parts of spain and canary islands etc, I thought it would be cheaper being that they still work in Lira and not euro? I guess I was wrong in thinking that?

So am I right in thinking its more expensive than parts of spain and the canaries?, When I was in majorca I think I remember it being around 3 euro or so for a litre of there own brand malibu in most of they're small alcohol shops which at the time meant it worked out at around about £1.90p or so. Are the prices more expensive in turkey?

I wouldn't worry too much Matt, the trouble with Turkey is that it's main selling point over the last 10 or so years is how cheap it is, and unfortunately that has got in to people's psyche. ie 'Turkey the cheap place to go for a holiday'.

It's now more similar in price to Spain, Algarve and other main European tourist hubs, or that's how it seemed to me last year. It isn't an expensive destination either. Hope that makes sense.
