Offering six adventure slides, a huge lagoon-style pool, three kids' slides and an onsite funfair, the Royal Dragon Resort in Side is a popular destination for all the family.

Guests can enjoy full use of the onsite aqua park, swim in the two connected free-form swimming pools, take a break from the sun in the irregularly shaped indoor pool and relax on the sun terraces (where you'll find plenty of sun loungers and parasols).

The resort is ideal for families, offering plenty of exciting kids' activities: there is a hotel run kids' club (for 4-12 year olds) a separate children's pool and a kids' section of the main pool, a funfair, a playground, playroom and toys and games. There are also activities such as ten-pin bowling and pool.

And while the children are kept occupied, why not treat yourself to a massage, relax in the Turkish bath or indulge in a beauty treatment or two?

In addition, the Royal Dragon Resort has plenty of places to drink and eat: there are four s la carte restaurants, a pool snack bar, a buffet restaurant and a selection of bars.

If you're looking to explore the surrounding area you'll find a sandy beach just metres from the hotel or a selection of shops, bars, restaurants and disco just 2km away. The centre of Side lies 5km from the resorts ideal if you want to experience a bustling resort.

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.

Resort Rating










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.


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.


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.


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.


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

Hi Steve, the waterpark does have opening and closing times, these change throughout the year, you will be advised of these upon check in.
I'm afraid we do not have details on the air conditioning at the property.
Kind Regards
