We stayed at Didim Beach last year 2013 at it was lovely really enjoyed our stay there... But unfortunately when we stayed in July 2014 the hotel was under new management and everything had changed for the worst!! The drinks were ridiculously small... You were charged for your room safe and you didn't get the £30 back which we found disgusting... The all inclusive stopped at 11pm even tea and coffee... The hotel was overrun with Arrogant Rude Disgusting Ignorant Vile Russians who had no manners Ate like pigs and the amount of food they wasted was appalling... They actually spoilt our holiday.. We paid £5000 to stay at this All Inclusive Resort but really our holiday was worth probably half that amount it was just terrible.. The staff at reception were rude unhelpful and damn right ignorant... When we checked out we was charged 95TL for 3drinks and 3 chocolate bars what the children had from their mini bar... Also another con they use to get money from you is block your room key so you govtovreceotion and they charge you £20 to unlock your key accusing you of having drinks/food in your room from the restaurant... Any good points... Errmm let me think... Probably Ali the Bar manager and some of the bar staff.. Mustafah who worked in the restaurant and the animation team who worked really hard to keep spirits up... Another few points to note... Free ice cream does not exist it 1TL every time there's no free kids club unless. Your with Thomson otherwise you have to pay...also sunbeds are a nightmare I use to get up at6am to get beds and an umbrella for us... A couple of times someone had a poo in the pool and it took over an hour for somebody to come clean it.. And twice while we were there 2 children were dragged from the pool after drowning thank god they were ok!!! So readers if you are thinking of going to this hotel please think AGAIN... It was a lovely resort in 2013 but not any more I would never stay here again it's an absolute rip off!!!!

Not the right time of month to go to this hotel. The Romania and Russians are very loud and especially bad when you are trying to sleep in the early hours. Have to admit the food after the second week was very monotonous ended up eating out all the time. They make great cakes though lol

The transfer to the location took around 3 hours. On arrival our room was allocated to another family so waited around for an hour and a half for our room. Finally got in there around half 2 am after climbing countless stairs because the lift was broke. The food left a lot to be desired for, we went to a lovely eatery up the road for most of our meals rather than eating the repetitive food in the hotels restaurant. The hotel seemed to cater for Russians who were extremely rude, the alcohol was bland, dont think I was tipsy once on my stay, the entertainment was virtually non existant, if you wanted a bed round the pool, you had to make sure you were up at half 6 or you would have no chance because everyone put their towels down on them, the private beach if you could call it thst was a huge let down, everything you thought was included in the price like all the water sports, the spa was all extra cost, even had to pay for kids icecream and ice lollies.No one came to repair my childs bed which in the end my husband repaired himself. Did have nice gardens and was clean but they're the only 2 good points to this holiday I had i'm afraid

Altinkum holidays mean sun, and there is no shortage of that on Turkey's turquoise Aegean coast! Temperatures here regularly reach highs of 30° Celsius and above in summer, and the winters are very mild, though rainier and overcast at times.
The best time of year to visit on holidays to Altinkum would be in either spring, summer or early autumn when the temperatures are more manageable. This assures you great weather, avoiding the peak season and of course, some quality beach-time to top up that tan!
