Royal Alhambra Palace details

Ideally located on Colakli’s lovely sandy beach, the Royal Alhambra Palace offers a little something for everyone!

All members of the family are sure to enjoy the huge range of facilities on offer at this new and friendly beachfront hotel which hosts some unusual attractions, such as a huge pool complex and even a funfair!

Situated just 5km from the centre of Side, the Royal Alhambra Palace is just a 500m stroll from the nearest bars, shops and restaurants but has so much to offer on-site that the possibilities are endless! The free-form outdoor pool features numerous waterslides where the whole family can also relax on sun loungers whilst watching all the fun!

After a hectic day, why not unwind in the hotel’s spa and wellness centre, with its Turkish bath and sauna – or perhaps enjoy a relaxing massage in one of the relaxation rooms – before heading off for dinner in one of the five a la carte restaurants.

Younger guests, aged between 4 and 12 years of age, can also enjoy the children only swimming pools, funfair (mid April – October, weather permitting), playground, kids buffet, bowling and even a mini disco! Whatever your age, the Royal Alhambra Palace really does offer something for everyone!

Side guide

Situated on a peninsula and flanked by two stretches of golden beach, the pretty holiday resort town of Side is a jumble of old and new, with an extensive range of tourist accommodation, shops, late-night bars and restaurants mixed in among the ruins of the ancient city. In the centre of town is the magnificent 2nd-century theatre with beautiful views towards the sea, and the remains of the Roman Baths houses an impressive collection of artefacts.

Activities

Side is full of antique ruins, but the Aspendos theatre and Apollon Temple are the most popular. The harbour is full of interesting boat tours and activities, including trips around Side or to neighbouring towns. The turtles can be visited on a daily tour, and the white sand beaches provide activities like scuba diving, parasailing, horse riding, and swimming. Nearby Manavgat has some beautiful natural sights, including a beautiful waterfall.

Restaurants

Side has a variety of restaurants, ranging from Western style food to local delicacies like dolmades and kebabs. Anatolia Cafe is a popular place for English breakfasts and roasts.

Nightlife

Most of Side's nightlife is concentrated along the beachfront. There are a few lively bars and clubs, but they don't stay open very late.

Shopping

The shopkeepers in Side have a reputation for pestering tourists, especially in the city centre. Many shops will not display prices, so be prepared to ask and haggle. Busy streets that lead down to the sea are lined with souvenir shops selling typical Turkish handicrafts like carpets, jewellery and leather goods. You can take a bus to the Manavgat market on Thursdays, which has the usual souvenir options like t-shirts and leather goods. The main markets are fun and have a lively atmosphere, but the best deals can usually be found in quieter areas.

Negatives

Side can be very crowded on weekends, when many local tourists visit.
