Disadvantages: price of the holiday is quite high
The best holiday I have ever had was in SIDE in turkey, at the time when I went, which was nearly 10 years ago, it was mainly like a land of building sites, but even that being the case, I had a brilliant time.
The locals are very very friendly; they made my families stay a brilliant one! Although we did come on a few that were over friendly but you get that everywhere.
At every restaurant we visited we were made to feel very comfortable, offered a free drink to start with and the food was amazing and unbelievably dirt cheap, I think the one night my parents paid £20 in total for the four of us to eat, that was including our side orders and our drinks.
To view the ancient ruins was an amazing experience, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, taking picture after picture to keep as memories of my time in this country. We did happen to come across a male who offered to show us round as he explained he was a local, unbeknown to us, he was going to end up charging my parents for the 5 minutes he showed us round, we know not to fall for that stunt again.
We had brilliant entertainment in and around the apartments we stayed at, even visited the lighthouse, to see the reps put on a show, which was the highlight of the fortnight.
I would advise side to anyone planning on going abroad, only the prices have rocketed since becoming a more known part of turkey.
My ideal holiday destination.
