"Nice place"

Overall Resort Rating:

Poor

Open quote

Kusadasi is a lovely place if you have the right ghotel andlocation but we was not happy with our accomodation and food. If you travel away from the hotels the bars and restuarants are very nice and the food is lovely. If you like to Shop and get a bargian then this is the place to go!

A lot of bars claim to be Irish owned but are not. Bar Street with it’s night life only really gets started at about midnight. So try the old town bars first. The Yucca is very expensive for food, but it is well prepared and served, but again there are lots of other restaurants around. I recommend “Pam’s,” which is just around the corner from the hotel…Left at the bottom of the road and second left….Try their roasts!!!! Street vendors try to get you in their shops and you will also be plagued by perfume sellers along the streets….It may be just water they sell…You just don’t know. On your way back to the airport at Izmer, buy your drinks and food as the cost inside is really exorbitant!!!!!

Ladies beach was the best lovely sandy beach with lots going on in peak season it can get vey lively. I would recommend this resort to everyone from singles and especially families to couples. I have travelled to Turkey many times but never to Kusadasi and would definately go back again as I enjoyed it very much.

Be prepared to be pestered every time you pass a shop, and avoid looking in the leather shops, as they don't let you out until you purchase.

"Avoid Murphys, Go to Aqua Fantasyland"

Overall Resort Rating:

Average

Whilst we didnt venture ot of our hotel too much, we did visit Kusadasi for the market (held every Wednesday 8am to 8pm). LOADS of handbags, clothing, shoes and other stuff on offer, but be prepared to haggle, and haggle very hard. The traders all speak good english, but can be downright rude and very forceful when trying to get your cash. You also wont get much difference between UK market prices and Turkish. The traders seemed happy to take Euros, Lira or Pounds, just be sure you haggle in the right currency, else when you settle on a price they will screw you on the exchange rate lol. Also remember that everything is fake and counterfeit - dont be lulled into believeing that these goods are genuine and therefore the prices excellent. As an example, one stall holder was insisting that £40 for a football kit was an excellent price. For a genuine kit, it would have been, but for knock off goods, it wasnt. However the market is a great experience, but dont go unless you want to buy, and make sure you are thick skinned enough to deal with the insulst when you walk away from some stalls. One stallholder actually told my ten year old son he hope our plane would crash on the way home, and this was after we had actually bought something from him - he obviously thought we had got too good a deal from him...?

Kusadasi itself is a great tourist town. Loads to see and do, and very lively. Just remember that EVERYTHING can be haggled, so the price you are asked for is the stupid tourist price, which only naiive people will pay. On which note, please avoid Murphys like the plague. Its decent enough food, but at an average of £10 a head for a one course meal and drink (2 adults, a 10 year old and a 3 year old) it is not what was advertised by the bloke touting the hotels, and they are quite pushy getting you to buy more drinks and spend more time there. I would call it school dinner standard food, and very much targetted at UK customers, but not good value for money by English standards, let alone Turkish.

We also visited Aqua Fantasyland. This was 15 euros per adult and half price for the kids through an excursion company, and worth evry single penny. The place was immaculately clean, the food on average 10 liras [5 euros] a meal (which for a theme park is pretty darn good) and tasty, and the park itself was out of this world. It was great for my 4 year old with blow up rafts going around a very long lazy river and a massive pirate land where the water is no more than 30 cm at any point. Loads of lifeguards, very helpful staff and then my 10 year old LOVED the slides, of which there were plenty. Even in mid august, the queues for slides were 5 minutes maximum, and frequently no queue at all. This is a definite recommend to anyone visiting Kusadasi.

"Bit of a slum"

Overall Resort Rating:

Loads and loads of shops / markets. Although I probably saves a couple of pound or so, when brought home, after a couple of washes, it all needed sewing or throwing! Good fun though bartering etc... There were quite a few beggers laying out their goods on the streets etc... which was quite upsetting, also children coming upto you asking for money & offering sweets which was heart breaking. Meals out were ok nothing to shout home about & when 7 of us (2 adults 5 children went out) The bill generally came to about £125 which was overpriced for what you got. Much better value when I went to Hisaranu last year and food was alot better. Boat trip was ok apart from everyone crammed on. we got a mattress but then as it was so packed people started to sit at your feet and started taking over our area, which I suppose you can't blame them! Jeep safari was good fun, apart from lack of information. Took us to a petrol station for the 1st hour & never told us when & what was happening, they could speak very little english, by which time my autistic son was going crazy! It all ended up ok in the end though. Kusadasi as a whole. Worst resort I've been to in Turkey and I've been to quite a few.
