As at my actual visa in Kazakhstan, I need to go out every 30 days and return (next time in Germany, I need to change that visa type).
As Aktobe airport is limited of direct flights abroad (in summertime only some charter flights to Antalya and 3 liners a week to Moscow), my choice was ...
Weather got the best of us and we bailed out early yesterday , to quote Justine, it was chuffin hot! Surprisingly bit hotter today but spent most of the day in the shade ..., lots of sun reading, my Dan Brown Inferno is a fab read . The hotel is a bit isolated so have only ventured up the beach but if u want somewhere to relax and recharge your batteries you couldn't wish for anywhere better ...

Alanya Took on new passengers last night in Cyprus. The drill wasn't as successful this time, most of my passengers were so rude. I lost my name badge somewhere out on deck during the drill too! Hopefully I can get one with my real name on it this time. Opened for a few hours on the evening and just about made it back to crew bar for one drink. Found it really hard to get up when my alarm when off this morning, after almost a week of getting up ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sunrise Park Resort and Spa Side
Fantastic Family Holiday
Fisrt time abroad on a package Holiday. Iwas very sceptical about "all inclusive" but having sampled this in the sunrise hotel I was very surprised. The kids entertainment was excellent. Look out for the kids disco. It'll have you singing the tunes for weeks on end. I've still got "Slappy" running thru my head now. The rooms were first class. But next time we go we'll try to get one of the Bungalows. They look amazing. Everything that you would want to do is on the resort but if you want to go outside, there's nothing much about unless you're willing to travel. Try going to the Jewellers at the market a short distance from the resort. Very reasonable prices and the blokes very friendly. Recommend this resort and will definately be back.
We have just come back from a fantastic 2 weeks at Sunrise and it was brillient. I'd read the reviews on any website I could find and was a bit worried about the food, but I don't know what people want or how they could moan. I have a very fussy eater husband and 3 kids and none of them went hungry, always loads of choice. The pizza at the kids snack bar are delicious. The whole complex was spotless, inside and out, the staff work really hard. The pools are aplenty, the aqua park great for kids and grown ups alike, and contary to what I'd read somewhere there was always at least 3 lifeguards around when the slides were in operation. The only downside to the village is that despite what you see on the photos the beach is not sand, its pebbles...that get very HOT and you have to stand your ground with the russians and germans otherwise they would walk all over you.
Two 20 something girls out for a relax and some fun...and thats exactly what we got in georgous CLEAN surroundings. I couldn't get over how clean it was, absolutely spotless. the apartment was cleaned to such a high standard daily and the bathrooms were a real suprise- it was definately 5 star accomodation. 4 great pools, an aqua park, one that the animation team played the games around, one quieter relaxing pool with a swim up pool bar (fantastic!) and indoor pool next to the hotels own health centre and turkish baths, it even has its own beach! You really couldn't have asked for more. We went just out of season, so wasnt at its busiest - but it was a fantastic time to go - no queues, and no waiting at the bar (but 2 blonde english girls aren't going to have to wait long for anything from the turkish waiters or bar staff!!) the staff were really friendly - not many spoke english - mostly german or russian - but an e in gcse german, and the staff being more than willing to help got us everything we needed! the lobby bar, where we had our own stools by the end of the holiday had great staff -mehmet and fatih. The amination team were funny - jimmy was great, they worked so hard.
What can i say?
When I was told that I was going to turkey by my dad i was not best pleased however it turned into the best holiday ever! the hotel is a true first class hotel the food, staff and entertainment are exellent i would recomend everything about the place from the live band on the beach to the such high standard of the rooms i have never seen maids work so hard! I certainly will not be goin back to spain in a hurry after seing wat turkey and this hotel has to offer.
I am booked to go again in april with friends just hope it aint quite as hot as when i went last 52 one day!
The hotel itself is beautiful, we stayed in the family bungalows (thankfully), however..... if you want to be treated like a second-class citizen, eat appalling food, which ALL tastes the same and be constantly harassed then this is the place for you.
Excellent value for money
The hotel was really clean and the entertainment was one of the best I had seen. There was lots to do for adults and children. The pools were clean and one even had a water park on them. Kept my six year ole very happy for hours on end while i got on with relaxing. The only draw back was that they didnt seem to cater for children in the resaurant, there only seemed to be chips, I thought an hotel that was aimed for familys could have had a childrens section, with nuggets, sausage burgersetc. The food for adults though was second to none. would deffinatly go back next year if they could garunteee a childrens menu.
HATED THE SUNRISE HOLIDAY VILLAGE
This hotel is catered for the Russians.The English are treat appauling by hotel staff and management.The food is disgusting and often cold as you have to queue for different dishes.Russians and other nationalities get priority over the British. Definately would not go back.
Loved the hotel
Very nice hotel, the food was quite german but you get a full range of all choices of food, it is a very posh hotel and the staff are great, if you go please take a present for the rep sarah sayer, she was the best rep ever (jar of coffee or mayo) u have to take a present or you will feel stupid. you will have a great time at this hotel, very big and clean hotel, we would go back. This hotel is for all ages and if you have chrildren then book in advance for the kids clubs creche or you may not get a place for your children. The kids reps are very good with the chrildren and have very safe toys, mostly little tykes. Have a great holiday. a four star holiday
I will go again
I went to this hotel in the Summer of 2003 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The entertainment was good the variety of activities very good (activities constantly going on, boules, archery, football, darts, swimming, table tennis and many more). The room was clean and comfortable and the staff friendly. The choice of food has to be seen to be believed and very nice (a variety of breads, soup, jacket potatoes, salads, casseroles, vegetables,pastas, rices, chips, fish and meats barbecued and freshly made pizza type breads, a dozen or so desserts and more). The complex is picturesque and the two pools well maintained and it has its own private beach. I intend to return next year. Great for couples and families.
Phew, dont listen to reviews!
It was after the holiday was booked that I looked on the net for visitor's reviews and wished I hadnt.
All I can say is that I think I went to a different hotel to them!! The food was good quality, plentiful and full of variety, I for one enjoyed it, and wasnt bored. The hotel it's could not have been better, the rooms spacious, clean, bedding changed daily, the pools clean and the staff pleasant and eager to please. I could have happily spent my time in the hotel, or wandering across the bridge to the beach without ever having to leave the grounds of the complex. This was my first experience of all inclusive and I'm now converted and would love to go back to this hotel later in the year
Relax and enjoy your holiday - I did
