Well, who does not know this magic combination at which sound of heart of millions of Russians start fighting and is more often and purer?! And after all a two-three tens years ago and on a place of the present town, and it was possible to find some villages of local fishermen in vicinities. Nowadays on this coast of the Mediterranean Sea, eyes – abundance of various hotels and tourist clubs, malls, restaurants, parks – everything how many are enough that it is necessary for soul!
But I not about Kemer. On InfoAdvisor.net there was a quite good article "Rest in Kemere, Turkey" where about the town everything is written correctly. But to have a rest there, in sense, in city line would not advise! City beaches of Kemer – all the same that Sochi where the people lie on the heads each other. By your windows in hotel crowds of vacationers and other delights of the "concentrated" rest rush.
And here aside – another matter! There it is already possible to enjoy the nature, the sea – in a word, to have a rest …
Place and time
So … Region, nevertheless, Kemer. Settlement of Chamyyuva. From the airport of Antalya – a little more than 2 hours by bus on very picturesque, places to the mountain road. To the next village – 15 minutes on foot. To Kemer's center from hotel about 8 km. These are 20 minutes by the regular bus plying along the coast for ~ 1?. Time – August.
This period (all August and the beginning of September) for Turkey – not the best time. Temperature does not fall below 33-38 °C, quite high humidity, in a word – is not too comfortable! Under conditioners and by the sea or the pool – it is normal, but just like that to walk – pleasure on the fan …
Elize Beach Resort
Quite good hotels both in Turkey, and in Kemere, in particular, there is a lot of. Considered here it was recommended by travel agency – the manager was in it.
I consider that it is extremely important – to find out it, people saw in live that advertize or not. By my experience, it is the biggest guarantee (if you, of course, trust these people!). In our case it was told that there it is cozy, quiet and peaceful and if something is necessary more incendiary, and to Kemer nearby. In total truth!
The Elize Beach Resort hotel consists of two cases. Main, 7-storeyed and Annex cases (3 floors). Remarkably that, as in one, and in the friend, all numbers with a look (at least and lateral) at the sea! But from the Internet responses found out that in the main building of number it is more therefore directly on reception declared that it is necessary for me here. The girl (from Khabarovsk!) rummaged in the computer and found to us number on the 6th floor. Those who did not ask – got to Annex.
Responses normal and from one building, and from another, but on appearance and internal furniture the main case really 5* hotel, and the extension reminds the hostel. Though in numbers everything is almost identical.
Naturally – all inclusive, drinks, flat cakes, cocktails, ice cream, etc. The food is very decent and various, and … is traditional for Turkey. On my taste, very decent beer – after all the Hilt nearby! 1 time for a week of rest it is possible to visit for dinner "a la carte" restaurant (the Italian or fish cuisine) – quite refined and is where to women to dress evening dresses!
The hotel territory very small, but also at the pool, and on a beach, and in general everywhere it is quite free, cozy and comfortable. There is a place where even it is simply possible to take a walk in a grass! There are 2 small waterslides with the certain pool – children are happy! The main pool of meters 30-40 in length, and on the one hand very deep (meters 5, probably) – there learn to plunge with an aqualung. Very amusing piece – periodically included falls – quite strong massage!
Small (~ 27 sq.m), but quite comfortable. Dressing gowns, but for some reason without slippers. 2 Russian channels. 2 beds and a sofa on which the child slept (we refused an additional bed). Some bottles of soft drinks in the refrigerator. Absolutely not old furniture that is pleasant. On a small balcony the dryer for things – too the necessary thing. Small disappointment: since August, i.e. during the season, the room safe became paid (2$/days), but on a rack, as before – it is free.
Very clean sea and beach. Water, of course, not as in the Red Sea, but quite transparent. The administration of hotel very much is proud of the of "a blue flag" – the European symbol of purity of the coast. It is pleasant that though an entrance to water – pebble, but on fractional structure transitional from small to average therefore does not strain at all. It is not pleasant to whom – the long pier. Dive – I do not want!
Any problems to find a place, a chaise lounge and was not. And, at any time. It is possible to ride free of charge kayaks and catamarans – but here, just, and turn!
In the territory of Elize Beach Resort standard set: tennis, aerobics, animation, a disco, sea walks, an aqualung, a folklore holiday with camels, etc. Did not go by excursion – it seemed that too hot. Walked on neighboring villages, went to Kemer.
Separate conversation – walk on the coastline. As well as around the world, it is free for visit on distance, apparently, of 15 meters from a water edge. We walked out of limits of hotel: to the right side there was a private, closed boarding house and the beautiful rock behind it (it is visible one photo below). Protection reacted instantly. But when I explained that we go along the coast and only – no problems! Try to experiment so in the homeland of near someone's private possession! …
Very decently! Both in numbers, and in bars, and on a beach. It is considered that in Elize Beach Resort hotel many Germans have a rest. Saw, but it is not enough. However, for Europe August – not a season, they, generally come in September – cheaper, and more quietly. But the service staff (which, of course, creeps before the available Europeans) confirmed: knowledge of German for work obligatory …
Nearby, naturally, mass of different hotels. I will shortly stop on one. From the water, through the road, up cases of group of Vera hotels uphill settled down. It is possible to walk (an entrance – free!) on foot, it is possible to drive up by the funicular. Remarkable paved a natural stone of a path, a lawn, driving on horses, a minizoo and mass of pleasant trifles like the Mediterranean pines and other (see a photo).
We had Tez Tour, flight – Aeroflot. Any problems. In total according to the schedule.
In our case the price of two adults and the child of 2 weeks was around $3000. In a word, I recommend, will not regret. Very adequately and without "pressure" spent time! By the way, approximately the same owners keep Kilikia Palace 5 hotel in the same area * – judging by responses, conditions and quality are comparable.
