Where is the best area to stay in Turkey?

Turkey is huge. With so many holiday resorts to choose from, it’s hard to know where to go. Well, we have the answer.

  • If you’re a family, the Antalya region has an amazing variety of five-star, all-inclusive family-focused hotels, with waterparks, kids’ clubs and a choice of restaurants – most of which are right near the beach! Antalya (the resort) and Belek are particularly popular with families, you can also find some fabulous family hotels in Dalaman, too! Families with older kids will love Kusadasi, a more traditional resort with a lively centre, and great nightlife but is still family-friendly.

  • If you’re looking to go away with friends, Bodrum and Marmaris are Turkey’s top nightlife spots, with an iconic range of clubs and bars to choose from.

  • A couple’s getaway to Turkey? Sounds perfect. Olu Deniz is stunning, there are tons of activities, sandy beaches and (most importantly) top restaurants to wine and dine at. If you’re more of a flop-and-drop couple, the luxury, all-inclusive hotels in Antalya will definitely win you over.
