Kusadasi a great place - Doug. Date of travel: May 2009
We stopped in Kusadasi on a cruise we took and the hassling was very off-putting, we decdied to go back the following year for a ten day stay and there's no hassle in the market anymore. The shop owners were told that they would be jailed if caught harassing the tourists. Brilliant place, people extremely friendly, ladies beach also earns top marks, you can also travel anywhere on the dolmus that are very cheap.

The town of Kusadasi wasn't far away and that was great they had a lot of shops but the men there was annoying because they wanted to drag you into the shops so if you're a girl and alone then be careful. There was also a little market what you can go to which is also nice and yet the men hassle you there to but it is nice.
Nice city - Josef Smith. Date of travel: Jun 2008
In Kusadasi you can find whatever you want. Around the city there are so many places for visiting. If you like a cultural and historical vacation...
Kusadasi - Natalie Newsome. Date of travel: May 2008
Kusadasi is the best place I have ever been! I love bar street and most of all Paddy's bar! It is amazing the staff are friendly and really nice. The food in Kusadasi is graet! The sun, sea and sand is beautiful and I could not ask to go to a better place! I'll definitely be coming back here. Big up Dubliners karaoke bar!
Very good sea view - Andrew. Date of travel: Feb 2008
Very good sea view
Panorama Hotel is on a quiet street just a minute away from the ferry terminal. They even provıde free pick up from Kusadasi bus stations. It's very close to the shopping bazaar, a few clubs and restaurants and a minute walk to the bay. Located near a bus stop with only a 10 minute ride to beautiful turquoise water and white sandy beaches.
Kusadasi was great - Sue. Date of travel: Sep 2007

Small but good - Rixx. Date of travel: Jul 2007
Small but good
Kusadasi is a good town with great features however very dangerous and many mosquitoes. Be careful. But a nice town to go to.
Ephesus - Nigel, Mandy and Phoebe. Date of travel: Jun 2007
Zaza organised our transfers from the airport to the hotel. We were picked up on time in comfortable air conditioned mini bus with very pleasant drivers and it was very reasonable. The trip to Ephesus was awsome and again very resonable and he didn't charge for our daughter. We would use Zaza again and we recommed you use him as well!
No place like it - Chunky. Date of travel: May 2007
Kusadasi takes some getting used to, but when you get behind the salesmen trying everything to sell leather and carpets the charm of this cosmopolitan town take over. A better sea front than most Turkish resorts large and flat with good quality hotels and bars from the marina to the harbour the large cruise ships really are a sight to behold. In Kusadasi town itself the shopping is unbelievable from posh boutiques to souviner shops there really is something for everyone. The restaurants are in abundance from sea front fish restaurant to traditional Turkish from Chinese to Burger King again a great choice. I have visited Kusadasi on holiday, not got a lot of choice really I've purchased a property there and as time goes by and I learn more about the Turkish customs and make more friends I feel at home, do I regret buying a property in Kusadasi? No way only wish I'd bought one 10 years ago. Try it for yourself you'll love the people, food and brilliant weather.
A very special place. - 'Tweedy' Harris. Date of travel: Jun 2006
Kusadasi has been a favourite in our family for two generations. We always come during peak season to appreciate the fine weather and the wonderful people, both from within the country and abroad. It is a very special place.

Had a lovely week. Did not like being hassled into resturants. Shops hassle to buy goods. Very friendly people. Hair done very cheap; a lovely young man. Turkish evening lovely: lots to eat, drink low in price. Village life very interesting: lot to see, lunch lovely. Wine tasting. Tour guide very good: explained all about the way they live. Hotel very clean: family run very friendly, helpful. Boat trip good but park near rocks, climb over. I stayed on boat. Food lovely again. Friendly staff. Had great night at Captain House. A disco: 60's music (too loud for me). Will go again soon. Can't wait. Tour Operator: Thompson
3rd time lucky - Neville Wailshtow. Date of travel: Jun 2005
I have for unknown reasons been here twice before actually enjoying but I must say this time around I found Kusadasi to be the perfect Turkish holiday. I regret not having explored the area more on previous visits but this time round made it out onto the Aegean for a boat trip that was simply magical. The service was vastly imprved this time round and I did enjoy the food.

Located in the Kustur area just outside the main town of Kusadasi this complex has to be one of Kusadasis best kept secrets. We have been to various parts of Turkey over the years so we have had our fair share of disappointments and suprises! Tour Operator: Direct

A group of 4 adults, we had seen this hotel on a previous visit to Kusadasi so knew exactly what to expect before we arrived. We arranged our own booking via their website, and collected our car rental from Izmir Airport and made our own transfer to the hotel. Izmir to Kustur is about 40mins taking it easy. Although the apartments would adequately accomodate 4 people we opted for 2 apartments on their upper level overlooking their fabulous pool and gardens. The hotel itself was impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. The split unit air conditioning in the room was essential and we had no hesitation in paying a small extra daily charge for its use. Food was excellent, (try their full english breakfast!) varied and catered for all diets and tastes. My Husband is vegetarian and the menu was no problem to him whatsoever. Entertainment was exceptional. We had spent a couple of days in 2003 using the hotels facilities to get a feel of the place and they have certainly improved on their evening animation - the best Turkish night we have ever been to, poolside barbeques and plenty to keep all ages occupied. This hotel is not overly large, some 80 apartments, we have again booked for 2005 and am pleasantly suprised that they have not increased their room rates from last years prices. They charge on a room basis and not per person - excellent all round and a great holiday for all. Very well done The Palm Club. Tour Operator: DIY Email Booking
