"Another enjoyable week at Petunia 14, which now seems like a home from home."
This was our second visit to Petunia 14. We last visited two years ago, and returned this year as the first holiday was superb. This time around we had the additional benefit of a newly-installed dish… More

"Relaxing week by the pool."
The family had a great week at Petunia 14. We had arranged a transfer with the owners on arrival who was waiting for us when we got through customs. The transfer was only 25 minutes to the apartment which was great. The apartment was exactly like the photos on the website and very clean. The pool was directly below the apartment and was a good size it did have loungers but they did not have any cushions which after a few hours sunbathing was a bit uncomfortable even with a towel over them. The location had three facilities you could eat at The Flamingo were we were based the Turquoise and Royal Heights. Royal Heights had the best restaurant and most friendly service. We did eat at the Turquoise which was closer but the service was very poor and not very friendly. We did not eat at the Turquoise as it was not as nice and looked a bit run down and could have done with a good clean.
This was a last minute get away for the family and it we did not need much other then the sun and a pool and a nice apartment. If we were there for more than a week we would recommend a car so that you could get around particularly to eat.
The area certainly has plenty to offer and has some great ocean views and we would definitely go back.

"Great for relaxation"
If you want a holiday which is tranquil and away from hustle and bustle then this is perfect. The apartment was clean and well kitted out. The balcony had a lovely view of the lake and also the nearest pool which we pretty much had to ourselves; at most there was ourselves and another family. For a little more life there is the Clubhouse Pool at Flamingo or Torquiose Pool which is a lot more livelier. The Private Beach and the Infinity Pool at The Heights are fabulous. The selection of restaurants is limited and not as cheap as I expected for Turkey (though not expensive). I traveled with my husband, 13 year old boy and 9 year old daughter. The supermarket is only a short distance and is open 9am - midnight which is useful.

"Petunia 14 - a lovely apartment."
We were pleasantly surprised on arrival at Petunia 14. It's a lovely, contemporary and tastefully decorated apartment. It was spotless throughout which was appreciated, and there was plenty of literature to hand regarding local amenities and places of interest. The kids were delighted to find a TV, accompanied by an an X-Box and DVD player.
We were impressed by the lovely large balcony to the front of the apartment with views to a distant lake, and a smaller balcony to the rear. You wouldn't use it to sit on, but is handy to store blow up beds and to cook food on the barbecue provided by the apartment owners.
There is a large and quiet swimming pool almost directly below the apartment which we used for the first day or so while we spent some time to settle in and read up on the local tourism literature. The kids loved it, and it was really convenient. There is also a spacious and private rooftop sunbeck above the apartment, but to be honest, even with a large canopy on a stand and sunbeds, it was too hot to stay up there for any length of time.
There are several shops within a 10-15 minute walk, as well as a two or three restaurants. The nearest town however, is around a half an hour mini-bus ride. The buses are regular and cheap but can sometimes be full at peak times. Cabs are a bit pricey, we found. We hired a car via the company recommended by the apartment owners and it was easy and inexpensive at around £30.00 a day. Considering there are no towns within walking distance, it was nice to have the freedom to explore without relying on public transport.
There is a nice little beach at Royal Hights, which is only around ten minutes walk from the apartment to an 8-person "car" on steel tracks which takes you down a steep hill to the beach. There's no sand as such. It's all wooden decking with lots of sunbeds, but the kids enjoyed diving off the wooden pier, and there's an inexpensive cafe just above the beach that offers waiter service to your sunbeds which is really nice.
There was only one small glitch and that was that every morning the water in the apartment cut off completely for approximately an hour and a half. We noticed it coincided with the swimming pool attendant topping up the pool with a hose, so I guess that was the reason. We simply learned to shave and wash the breakfast dishes early.
One tip. It's a really good idea to thoroughly clean up after every meal and put everything away. Any food or even crumbs on the kitchen surface or floor attracts ants - lots of them! But hey, this is Turkey, not Torquay! We'd definitely book again.

Lovely quiet and relaxing resort. There are 3 centres within the resort, Flamingo, Turquoise and Royal Heights. Being honest whilst Flamingo was not our favourite, it had the least faciliteis and was … More
