... your hand and you spread it on your hands, neck or arms. He also spritzered the carpet of the bus aisle carpet with a lemon scented spray frequently. From Izmir we transferred to a mini bus for an hour ride to Selçuk and our hotel. After settling into our room, off for a short walk and out to dinner. Wonderful restaurant and great ...
... at all. We saw a horse and cart loaded up going through town. All along the roads we saw people watching their cattle and sheep to make sure they kept off the highway!
We stopped for lunch at a little eatery along the road and managed, with a lot of pointing, to work out what things were and tell him what we wanted. We had the kofte or meatballs with rice and salad and of course bread. They were cooked on the grill out front while we waited.
... and I know. Picture several groups of men all sitting round a table, all drinking black tea (chai) out of small tulip shaped glasses and playing board games! No milk, no lemon and definitely.......no women! This is turkish tea culture at its best! Being of British descent and loving my tea, Mark and I have been into a few of these tea houses...it was only when I was in about the third one that I realised there were no women....I ...
Wandered around Selcuk, which took all of 15 mins end to end. Bought some snacks and then hiked up to St. Jeans Basilica for a photo op. Had a view of the whole town. I want to say it was breathtaking, but it really wasn't; Selcuk is a small, sleepy town without key landmarks, so it just looks like I took a photo from a hill.
On the walk back to the hostel, met a restaurant owner named Mehmet, who invited me in for tea despite me saying I didn't plan to ...
... Fanta? It came with the hotel, and was served by a very kind older man in a chef outfit. The Turks really like their uniforms. There was even a man in a chef uniform on our PLANE coming into Izmir. Breakfast has also been our only meal today... more on that later down ;)
2. We wandered the streets of Izmir, finding ourselves on back streets filled with tiny shops, little children, who really enjoyed saying "Hello" in English to us, and older women with ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ephesus Princess Hotel Selcuk
Ephesus Princess was not in my opinion a 5* rating in was more of a 3*, although the service was acceptable the overall standard was poor your company advertised the hotel as "ultra inclusive" but this really was not the case, for example their selection of drinks service at a number of bars was very poor. (gin, vodka only at the cocktail bar on the beach)
This holiday has been even better this year, i visited it last year aswel and i thought it was great for me, my partner and my children.
I just came back from Ephesus princess with my wife and two kids.
I am from France and I have spent 2 weeks in June at EPHESUS PRINCESS HOTEL and 5 months after being back there is still something very strong thaht remain from this holiday time.
Go to ephesus princess for a great time
just got back from the ephesus princess and what a great holiday it was for all the family. i went with my husband inlaws and children what can i say accomadation great food fantastic staff could not do enough for you and the entertainment team worked flat out all day long. it really was a great place to stay with only one drawback our room was up at the top with 70+ steps which is hard with a buggy but when we mentioned it to reception they said we could pay extra for a prestige room or they would run us back and forwards in the hotel car they really make you feel special and i will be going back
Just got back from a weeks stay at the ephesus princess. Lovely large hotel with a great views over the pool. The food is good but try the A la Carte restaurants too where it is a bit better. Music is played by the pool all day so if you really want to relax then this might get a bit too much. However there are a few steps and you come to a little private beach. Try the winehouse at the top of the resort where you can relax with a glass of wine away from it all. The rooms are nice but basic. They have a great maid service where they top up your fridge with soft drinks everyday. There is a local bus that can take you in to the centre of Kusadasi if you want to explore.
We have recently returned from a 2week holiday staying at the Ephesus Princess. The hotel was superb with the staff being very friendly. We had 2 rooms on the 1st floor of the main hotel which were located on ground level and this proved to be an excellent choice as it gave us easy access to the pools, restaurant and several bars. The food was buffet style for breakfast, lunch & dinner in the main restaurant and there was always a good selection. You could also book at the a la carte restaurants for several dinners depending on the duration of your holiday, this was not always the better meal but made a pleasant change! The rooms were spotless and the maid service very good. The private beach is accessed by stairs leading from the pool area. It is quite a steep climb but luckily in the afternoons, there is a tractor that runs every 30mins from the beach to the hotel so you do not have to worry if you are not overly fit!!
I went quite some time ago, may 02 and you wont find a more beautiful hotel. I wont write alot (lots of people seem to go into great detail). I shall start with the rooms, they were'nt brilliant, not that big but there was enough for the amount of time we were going to be spendidng in there (we had a standard sized room). And we had our own fridge and the maid made good job of cleaning round every day. The gardens were absolutly beautiful! There were lots of tropical creatures around. The beach was man made but pretty none theless. And there was a nice bar that served cocktails.The beach wasnt to crowded. The food was v nice, lots of variety, i've been to many all inclusive hotels all over the world and the food was of the best quality. The entertainment was very funny and entertaining. And not cheesy like most! You wont be dissapointed. we made some great friends there that we stil keep in touch with. Go and enjoy yourself, you WILL have a brilliant time!
we stayed at the Ephesus Princess quite some time ago- in August 2001. The accomodation was situated outside of the main hotel on a hillside complex overlooking the coastline. Our room was comfortable and we stayed on a fully inclusive basis. Food was of good quality although it's best to avoid the peak opening times of the restaurant as seating was at a premium and there were long queues at the buffet. The hotel had it's own private beach which was extremely busy and the sunbeds were placed so close to each other you could easily shake hands with the holiday makers lying next to you. It's beachside pizza restaurant was excellent and very convenient especially for the children as it was a very steep walk back to the hotel, we advise you take advantage of the tractor-taxi. Hotel entertainment was varied and catered for all ages, it offered watersports during the daytime (1 hour free tuition per day including water ski-ing) evening entertainment plus disco's and cinema until the early hours. However we did find the hotel isolated as there are no other buildings or hotels situated locally-if you like a stroll after dinner or a walk into town this hotel is definitely not for you! Finally for those who like a drink as part of their "all inclusive package", we found the spririts to be very weak and diluted, I'm sure Weights & Measures would have a field day over here in the UK, but Turkey does not comply with any copyright or licencing laws so watering down the drinks is of no consequence to them. You could drink from dawn until midnight and still be as sober as a judge, we did compalin to the Airtours rep Kim who was most dismissive and unhelpful. So if you don't enjoy a tipple and like to stay within the hotel complex this holiday would be ideal.
