I know there are many people who love Icmeler. I disliked it so much I thought it was simply awful, along with Marmaris which we disliked even more. Our best day on that holiday was when we went away from them both and headed to Turunc!
Im torn . . .thinking about it . . .but we had a wonderful trip this year to New York and Orlando, and I fell in love with NYC, so also considering an extended NYC trip combined with a cruise . . .but also thinking about a Turkey fix.
May just go back to Olu which we loved so much!
Dalyan is by the river, in a stunning location, restaurants line the river, its a great place to eat, with the backdrop of the rock tombs. To get to the beach (which is beautiful) you go on a wonderful boat trip, through lovely scenery, the beach is protected because loggerhead turtles nest there, so there is no building allowed there. Have a google of Dalyan and turtle beach.
Alternatively, would you not want to reconsider Turunc though? Even though its small its very friendly, the waiters and bar owners soon get to know you and you get great personal service. As you probably saw there is a fantastic choice of restaurants, there's also some great boat trips, there always seems to be plenty to do if you want to get out and about.
Good luck, if you do choose Turkey again!
Its strange that Karen didnt like it yet loves Olu.
When I went to Olu I hated it and cheered when the coach came to take us to the airport.
We all like different resorts and I think the resorts are different at different times of the year.
I am thinking about going to Marmaris in April as we were so impressed with the Marina area when we visited in October and we hope to return to the National Park to the north east of the harbour.
We are cant decide between Calis Beach and Dalyan for our October holiday.
Yes, there is rubbish but that is down to inconsiderate people who can't be asked to deviate to put it in one of the many waste bins located about the resort. This is more noticeable in summer when there is an abundance of discarded water bottles, particularly around the hotel areas. On a more positive note, whilst Altinkum may not be everybodys cup of tea, the Turkish people are welcoming and very hospitable, add to this, over 10,000 resident Ex-Pats can't be wrong can they ??
I have only ever been to that part of Turkey before I was married but I wont visit again now.
