A few years ago my partner, son and myself hired
a speedboat from the Marmaris Palace and headed off
along the coast. Past Içmeler and we came
across Turunç, it looked lovely.
A couple of years ago we decided to search for a
holiday in Turunç and we found The Turunç Hotel.
We stayed there in October 2012 and loved every minute
of the holiday. We really enjoyed walking in to
Turunç on an evening, it was so relaxing and hassle free
and the people were lovely.
Last year my partner and myself decided to get
married - we planned a return to The Hotel Turunç with a
view to having a beach wedding/blessing then marry
officially once we returned to the UK. We booked
the holiday and messaged the Hotel! To cut a long
story short we had an amazing beach blessing at The
Hotel Turunç, the service was conducted by the animation
team manager who dressed up as Captain Jack Sparrow and
came to the beach on a boat! We had our stag and
hen nights in Turunç itself, visiting the various bars.
A waiter from the Hotel (Huseyin Gunaydin) recommended
we hold our wedding reception at Çardak Restaurant - Ali
the owner and the staff were amazing and they even let
fireworks off for us after the meal. We then
headed off to some bars in Turunç, finishing off in Bros
Bar. There were 11 of us and we had a fantastic
time. The owner of Bros Bar was convinced my brother and
myself were the pop group 'Right Said Fred' so we said
We love Turunç and the Hotel Turunç. My advice
to anyone staying at the Hotel Turunç is to enjoy the
all-inclusive deal but head out in to the village and
eat and drink locally; it is very good value and the
local people are lovely. I can sum up how nice
Turunç is by my observation that when bars close on an
evening some of them just pull a plastic sheet down
across the front of the bar to 'lock up'. I don't
know many places where you can do that!
Thank you to everyone in Turunç for making us all
feel so welcome.
