The hotel is located in Kumkoy, about 5 km from the ancient town of Side. There are frequent dolmuses from the hotel to Side and Manavgat. The hotel has two large swimming pools and the beach is about 300 m downhill. The rooms are of average size, bathrooms are small. All rooms have a balcony. The hotel underwent a major refurbishment last year. There are many more luxurious hotels in Side and vicinity, but Side Alegria offers a good combination of convenient location, comfort and service at a very reasonable price.
The hotel is all inclusive and all meals are served buffet style. There is a large selection of hot dishes, salads and desserts which should satisfy every palate. Particularly the selection of salads is impressive. The emphasis is on Turkish cuisine, which is very rich and healthy. Beverages are served by waiters at meal times. There is also a bar with a good selection of local drinks. The staff are very friendly. Despite some negate reviews on TripAdvisor I would recommend the hotel highly.More
