Right, where do I start??!! Just got back from my first time in both Kusadasi and the Ida apart hotels and it was bloomin fantastic! The hotel itself is just out of the centrum which I thought was great as the noise levels were fairly low, it was up a hill though so it's not recommended for the elderly, infirm or those that smoke 20+ fags a day. The hotel had a fantastic view of the marina below and over to Kusadasi centrum. You had great views of Pigeon Island etc and the QE2!!!! (when it pulled up for a day!) The hotel was nice and clean, we stayed in Self Catering apartments that baically had everything we needed, the maids were on hand and kept everything clean and tidy, the pool was freezing, but I believe this is pretty customary in Turkey. The bar was great with nightlife and they were more than happy for you to play your own cd's etc which is great once you get sick of the same songs they play over and over and over again! The staff were fantastic, there was a guest that was having sight mental problems (understatment of century!!!) and the staff were on hand to help assist. They kept everyone calm, translated without a problem and kept us all entertained at the same time - although lil miss nutjob managedd that anyway! Erm what else can I say other than we are most definately going back!! The hotel told us that we can book a week with them fairly cheaply and they will collect from the airport at no extra cost - which is great - so I'm now trawling the internet for cheap flights! Who needs a travel agent when you have a great hotel to go to again!!
