Turkey Discussion Forum

We have not been to Turkey before but have read and heard so many good reports and would really like to somewhere other than the usual Canary/Balearic Islands. The only thing putting us off is the heat July/August time so we wondered what it would be like during the school Easter holidays, i.e. first two weeks of April and how the temperature would compare to, say, the Canary Islands at this time of year. We just want to get away for a bit of sun and warmth!

We are a family of 4 with two boys, 12 and 8, who love football, golf (mini and putting) and swimming. We would be looking for a nice complex (at least 4*) that would cater well for them, with daily and evening entertainment, close to the beach. I guess most accommodation is all inclusive, which is fine.

We don't know much about the resorts or hotels in Turkey either so any recommendations on where to stay would be much appreciated.

Has anyone come across any deals to Turkey recently?- I've looked on the Portland, Thomson, etc websites but wondered if there were any other useful holiday websites that may specialise in Turkey.

Any advice/recommendations would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance for any advice.
Hi Jan, don't know about the weather in April, sorry. But try On the Beach - onthebeach.com - for holidays, or Holidays for you. I found some cheapies on there for April, but decided not to go as it is too near our booked holiday in May.

Go into Turkey weather reports for last April to see what it was like then.

Marn.
Have a look on Icmeler online website for there offers :wink:
If you're looking for guaranteed heat I wouldn't bother. You might get wet weather or you might get sunny weather into the 60s but it won't be anywhere near as warm as the Canaries.
I would go in June or September for hot-but-not-sweltering weather.
hi

ive been to turkey the last 2 easters, last year the weather for easter wasnt great, we managed to sun bathe for about 2-3 hours on only 2-3 days out of the week, temps were around 19-23 in marmaris, the year before the weather was better and sun bathed again only 3-4 hours but 4-5 days out of the week,temps around 21-24 but this was antalya. depends what you want if its just to get away somewhere not to busy then this should be fine. if you want guaranteed sunshine for a week or 2 then its risky. we love turkey and go a lot but mainly cos my mother lives there.

or tulip holidays

Thanks very much everyone. After reading your comments I think we'll probably leave Turkey until the warmer months. We went to Cyprus a few years ago at the end of March and the weather was very interchangeable and cold in the evenings. So having experienced that I think we will opt for the Canaries, where at least you can be guaranteed some sun and warmth.

Thanks again.
