Pleasant location, on a good sandy beach
Side is a cute town with Greco Roman ruins to explore and friendly restaurants. It's a 1 Euro Dolmus ride away or a fifty minute walk along the lovely promenade. The hotel itself is pleasant enough. We had an all inclusive deal - a first for us. Handy, because there isn't much in the way of restaurants other than in Side itself and one or two halfway down the promenade. Good choice of food, but does get a bit samey after a week. Strict adherence to serving timetable and waiters' insistence on blocking off some seating areas of the terrace is a bit annoying.
Pros: Pleasant location. Nicely kept lobby, pool, restaurant etc. Plenty of good food.
Cons: Airco in the room brought in cigarette stink from somewhere. Shower hose was a bit broken. Sure it would have been replaced had we asked.
Location: Pamukkale is a must see, but 4 hours away. When booking, check if entrance is included! Boat up river to Manavgat is pleasant but don't expect turtles
