... walked up to the really newly discovered theater; they have just started excavating that. Pretty amazing.
Then we continued to Bodrum……and that’s another story! We arrived and were told that we had been upgraded to a junior suite. We were thrilled, of course. Here are two quick pictures:
Today we managed to get to Bodrum Castle - very impressive building with a long and varied history. There were lots of steps and spectacular views of the Aegean as well as Bodrum marina. You can readily see that is would be a great defensive building with visibility to see who is coming. Lunch in our newest find for great pide - this time with complementary apple tea. Then it was back to the pool for some more reading and ...
... By the time I returned mum was recovered so we did some more shopping - and picked up some exquisite silk cushion covers. The shop owner saw us coming - and we were treated to apple tea - and complementary "kuneffe" after our pide. Kuneffe is a sweet cheese filled dessert with honey and coconut - not over sweet and very nice! Following all of this we were well ready for the pool and some ...
Today we tried to visit Bodrum castle - and failed. Having got up bright and early so as to avoid the heat of the day we arrived to find that the castle is closed on Mondays. I wanted to pick up some more books ( it is amazing how much you can read lying beside a pool!) ...
Today we decided to have a quiet day -lazing by the pool. However mum was determined to have a proper fried breakfast (which we did for lunch) at the restaurant across the road from our hotel. Then back to the pool for more reading and swimming. I think I am the palest person here as I am rarely out of the shade and have 50+ sunscreen (left over form Israel las ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Peyda Aqua Apartments Altinkum
Went to Peyda with my three children, rooms were basic but clean, the staff were very friendly & polite. Great holiday would recommed this hotel for families who want to travel on a self catering basis.
at the time i stayed at peyda i was 15 but had stayed ther for the previous 2 years aswell!! i found the accomadation very good n the staff are really friendly n can always remeber you!! the rooms are extremely clean, they are basic but it makes it feel more homely n like your own that way, it has a fridge and the ovens n things like that. i agree with some people though there wasnt that much goin on during the day but the night entertainment was really good. they used 2 hold a turkish bbq night wer they got traditanal turkish folk dancers in and the breakdancers but also they have da game room to play pool or table tennis in. also recommend you get a turksih bath whilst stayin there it fantastic..... overall all da family enjoyed our stay at peyda there was 8 of us all together 4 adults n 4 children ages from 8-15 n all seemed to really enjoy the place.
I thought Peyda Aqua was pretty clean apart from the fact our stair lights wouldn't turn on so it was a struggle trying to get into our apartment every night! It was my first time in Turkey and we didnt enjoy it! Yes, the staff were really friendly but sometimes got a bit too annoying. I found most of the Turks over-friendly and my 16 year old daughter wasn't best pleased with all the 'friendly' attention. Many a time she was groped and I don't think it is very appropiate. There was nothing to do at all in the day at Peyda Aqua even though the boards mentioned several activities, they never took place. However TUrkey was very lively at night and we enjoyed several bars especially The Big Nose Bar and Linekars. Linekars was probably the best bar in Altinkum as there was plenty to do especially for teenagers/children. Overall I think Turkey is abit like marmite - you either hate it or love it! :)
that was my first time in turkey and it wasnt that bad.the rooms were very basic and there where not any blankets for the beds.so if you go this time of year ask for blankets you need them cos its freezing at night.the rooms were clean and got cleaned every day.the 2 pools were also clean but very cold too.remember and go to the markets they are good.appart from that its a good place to go for a cheap holiday.
Really good holiday
Stayed at Peyda Aqua between 7-14 Sept 05. Had a great time. Staff really friendly and self catering facilities very good and very clean. Food in restaurant good value and high quality. Pools very clean and not too cold! Not much really more to say than if you are staying there you'll have a great time and no worries.
I had a great time at peyda! At first I thought okay this apartment is not that great but then 5 minutes later it felt like home, the staff keep it clean and always listen to your requests. The pool is cleaned daily morning and night and there are two so it never gets too crowded!!Peyda is lively and a great place to stay, although I never actually stayed for the night activities, shows etc as I went out I am sure it is fantastic! If you are staying at Peyda I would say you are definitely going to have a great time!!
Had a great time
The staff were extemely helpful and friendly. Any problems were dealt with immediately. I was a bit concerned about the review on cleanliness but the apartments had been redecorated inside and out and were simple but clean. Ideal for families as the staff provide entertainment most evenings.
Had a great time
I stayed in Peyda Aqua August 2004, had a really great time. If you want to go down to the beach get the reception staff to call one of the restaurants on the beach and they will taxi you there and back all you need to do is buy a drink. The whole of Altinkum is filled with wonderfully friendly people. The staff at the Peyda were helpful and lots of fun and organised water polo, football etc. Watch out for the mosquitoes!
Lacking in cleanliness
I was very disappointed with the state of the rooms at the peyda aqua,they were very lacking in cleanliness.I stayed there in the middle of july and apart from the rooms i was very impressed with Turkey ,the staff were very friendly.However after a hot day round the pool or on the beach you expect to be able to have a shower this was not always possible at the peyda.
complex: very good
Loved every minute of it
I stayed in peyda aqua appartments for 2 weeks. I just got back 2 days ago. I really enjoyed my holliday there. The appartments were adverage and could do with being a bit more cleaner. The staff were very very freindly and alway there to speak to all the time. There are 3 beaches in Altinkum, the 1st and 3rd beach was very busy because of the time of year. We spent most of our time on the 2nd beach as it was much quieter. Overall i really enjoyed my holliday and made alot of new friends there and i am hopeing to visit Altinkum again.
