Sunset Village is well located, just a three minute stroll from the nearest beach and less than ten minutes to the main stretch of sand. In a quiet, residential location, the hotel is nevertheless in easy reach of the resort centre -it’s a 25 walk or a 5 minute hop in a taxi away. There’s a big pool and well-tended gardens, as well as a little snack bar, and inside your apartment you’ll find a kitchenette and a large living area. This hotel scores 4/5 on TripAdvisor, and throws BBQ nights from time to time – just ask the staff if there’s one due during your stay. This hotel is the perfect base for your Turkey summer holidays.
Your Turkey summer holidays have loads in store! Altinkum itself is home to a series of pretty sandy coves, and with the ever-affordable dolmus buses running throughout the day it’s easy to get out and about and explore even without renting a car. Just across the bay, the pretty Bodrum peninsula is home to the city of Bodrum, which with it’s castle and Ottoman charm has attracted Turkey’s intellectuals and artists since the early 20th century.
