Went 3rd to 16th October (13 days booked a full package with Jet Holidays flying from Leeds/Bradford,both flights were great 3 seats between us on both flights,took a while to get through Dalaman airport on arrival,as 6 flights arrived all in a short time,so firstly had to wait at PP Control 4 desks open but large queues at each took around 15 mins then had to wait for a carousel to become available for luggage took another 20 mins which then came through the very slowly about 20 mins for ours,so a total of almost an hour before we came out of airport....Usualy have a private transfer but this time it was included in the package price so used it,12 seater bus with 8 of us on it which left with in 5 mins of us getting on,took 1 hour and 40 mins with a 15 min stop same again on return journey,which we thought was very good for tour operators transfer...
Stayed in Verde Hotel A/I,same as we did last year in Sept/Oct,as we got the package cheaper than we could get s/c or b/b,hotel was good,room was very clean and spacious with aircon included in the package and we love the location of it as we like to go the beach most days,as we prefer it to the pool..We just used it as a B/B and had a few drinks before we went out at night,as we were out all day everyday and every night..
Tried some new restaurants this year as well as returning to some of our favourites which are Meryem Yemec Evi,Alins Grill,Urgru and Deniz Kapisi...New ones tried were Cihan Okabasi in Marmaris which was very good,Caddie Pide Icmeler again very good,Tin Tins good and Kyra Pide wich was excellent we retuned 3 times to this one..Loved trying the more traditional ones and could not believe how cheap they are for the amount of beautiful food you get and will definitely be using them again..Had breakfast out at Backstage,Wembley Bar and Florida Bar a couple of times all very good but the price at the Florida bar was only 18 lira for 2 including 1 tea and 1 coffee,others were around 30 lira for same things..
Weather was fabulous for the whole time except for a couple of showers on Monday morning of our second week,but was lovely from lunch time onwards,never needed a cardi not even at night..
