After our visit to the seaside resort, Oscar took us to this little town that is the home of his favorite Turkish dessert shop. We took a walking tour of the town, and then went to the shop for dessert, where we met the family that runs the shop, and even sang a song for them. ...
... Before we went to get ice cream we toured the city a bit. It was absolutely breath taking once again. It had the most beautiful scenery that I have ever seen in a city! And right within the city, there was a bay. Walking along the borders of the city I was amazed at how clear the water was to the bay. The water was such a clear light blue, I could see the rocks and stones at the bottom of the bay floor. The water looked so shallow because it was ...
... to just hang out by the water, take pictures, and smoke hookah. The dessert place was also phenomenal. The ice cream was like nothing I had ever had. It was gooey and chilled not actually cold. A family entered the establishment and a 2 year old serenaded us with Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star in Turkish. We returned the favor with The Lord Bless You and Keep You but I still feel like that little kid beat us.
Later on, a group of us went out on the town ...
... that he had ever tried. A little boy at the shop was also flirting with some of our female choir members, and he sang "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." We said goodbye with a performance of "The Lord Bless You and Keep You," and the family that owned the shop seemed genuinely glad to have hosted ...
Today we visited Alaçati, a popular spot for Turkish locals on the Çesme Peninsula. According to Oscar, the peninsula is one of the best spots in the world for windsurfing. The weather was beautiful during our walk through the town of Alaçati. It seemed like a spot that would come alive during the Summer, and Oscar mentioned that many times during the Summer months the streets would be so crowded with tables that it might become impossible ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Didim Beach Resort & Spa Altinkum
Well...Where do i start! This hotel is great! Not only was the hotel high standard the town itself was very pleasing. Me and my family went in mid september 2004 and the weather was to die for! And the staff were very friendly. There is a great selection of land and water activities for all ages. The turkish bath is very relaxing and the rooms were standard but who spends alot of time in there room (apart from sleeping)! My favourite thing about this holiday was around the clock drinks which, because its all inclusive, are free which saves carrying loose change in your pocket! The views were stunninng and the private beach...well the name says it all! I have just this very minute booked up to go september 2005. I am certain if you go you will find this is definately well worth the money!!! And please dont hesiate to email me for more info! :)

We visited the hotel in August 2004, and both my wife and i agreed the holiday would take some beating. The room was spotless and spacious,and i would recomend a room at the back it seemed much quieter on the night. Anybody who complains about the food must have gone to a different hotel to us, even my seven year old didn't complain once. Along with a fantastic beach, superb pool and great hostpitallity it was a holiday not to be forgotten. We've booked again this year and can't wait, see you there.
We had an excellent time.
We had an excellent time. Although the hotel was definitely not a 4*, the staff were very friendly. Great for young families. Food was excellent. There was so much to choose from, and people STILL managed to complain and chose to eat elsewhere despite being all inclusive. You can't please all the people.............
I have just returned from the Tropicana Hotel Didim Beach (August 2004) and my family and I have had the most fantastic time. I am well travelled and been to many restaurants and if you complain about the food in this hotel you must be mad. The standard of food is absolutely excellent with amazing choice and quality. It's the best we've ever had in a hotel, especially fully inclusive. The staff are helpful and friendly and the service in all areas is wonderful. There could be more entertainment in the evening, but the local bars are good fun. The site of the hotel is good as it is just outside the town, so is very quiet. The only draw back I can see is that the rooms are a bit shabby, but Turkish standards are not the same as in England. At least they are clean. I would recommend this hotel to anybody!!!
Great holiday destination
Stayed here from 8 Aug 2004 for 2 weeks. Food was not bad considering number/nationality of guests to cater for. Private beach was lovely. Pools were great although not enough sunbeds/umbrellas provided. Hotel was very clean and most of the staff were helpful & friendly. Would certainly consider coming here again. Very good value for money.
Very Good Time
I went to Didim Beach on 21st June 2004 and loved every minute of it. The beach was great, the hotel great with everything catered for, the food was good with something different both lunchtimes and evenings. You couldn't fault the service. Everyone was so polite and friendly. Probably a bit more nightly entertainment was needed for those not wanting to go to the nightclub in the early hours but the two evenings they had some were great. I enjoyed myself so much that I am going back 6th September this same year!
Good value for money
Hotel Didim beach
Stayed at the Didim Beach 3 May 04 for 2 weeks, paid 400.00 all inc.
Hotel was clean, food was good and well worth the money, going back 20 Sept 04. This hotel is not a 4star i would say a 3+
GREAT PLACE FOR THE PRICE YOU PAY
This hotel offers great value for money,the place is clean and tidy. OK the food might not be great but then again it's not that bad, the bar service is 24hrs, you dont get that anywhere else. We had a great time here and would recommended it to anyone thinking of going to Turkey.Please don't let these poor reviews put you off, give it a try you won't regret it.
we stayed at didim beach for 2 weeks 18/4/04 the hotel was very clean .gardens and pool well cared for ,but the food was terrible cold and very poor quality dont go to the ala carte restuarant we were there for over 2 hrs and had still not had the main course .ala carte in turkey means you do not get to choose what you eat
