We have now visited lykia 5 times. I suppose that says it all.
Just booked to go back this october 09.
The only downside drinks after meal times in the evening are so expensive as through out the day you can manage by going from resterant, also avoide the shops try and pack as much as you can for toiletries etc so very dear.
but overal a fab place.

Made so many friends by going back each year and it pays to join the repeat club as you get money off the following year off your bar bill.

My daughter is 16 and she will not go any where else all she says is its just the best mum.

Then im happy if the children are.

We have been to Lykia World twice now and have already booked again for May 2008. This is the best holiday we have ever been on, the facilities are fantastic and the everything is clean and tidy. We stayed in the residence part of Lykia World it is a little more expensive but its worth while as you are near all the facilities.

All the staff are very helpfull and each time we go back they recongnise you and cant do enough to make you stay pleasant and comfortable. The food is great and there are so many choices you could easily put a stone in a week. This is the only hotel that my husband will return to again and again, every time we get back from holiday my children ask are we booking again for Lykia World.

Excellent holiday. The standard of Lykia World is 10/10, with every age catered for . With the choice of 17 pools or the private beach you can't go wrong.

The only thing I would say is that if you are not a good walker you may struggle. We were at the end away from the main centre which was good on a night because it was really quiet, but it was a good 10 minute walk and we was on the 3rd floor with a baby in a pram and there are no lifts!!!

But otherwise a fab holiday and we will be going back.

We have been to Lykia World, in Olu Deniz, twice now and have thoroughly enjoyed it. We have recommended the Lykia World complex to friends who have since been and really enjoyed it. Great for both couples and families.

Been to Lykia World for the last 5 years, like lots of other people we have found this place very hard to beat! Really want to go again next year but we are going to try somewhere else. Facilities for children, especially young children, are fantastic. They even have their own little pool and dining areas. Would definitely recommend although there are a lot of steps, but I don't mind as the food is fab and the inches can soon pile on!

We spent two excellent weeks here and are looking at going back next year. We ate mostly in the Marina restaurant which was lovely at night watching the sunset. If going at this time of year make sure you only eat when the sun has set as there where lots of wasps. The quality of food is unbelieveable and the choice is unlimited. Kids were in their element with the amount of ice creams they could have. The kids clubs were run excellently and offered lots of activities for all ages and all the kids seemed to have lots of fun. The complex was very clean and we did not need to leave it. We definitely recommend this resort to people with families and its true to say once you have been you want to go back. We met up with some people who where on their 4th visit. (preston)

BEST HOLIDAY EVER. We've been going since 2002 and as of yet not found anywhere we would rather go. My two teenage children (usually hard to please!) love it there and want to keep going back, which means I have a peaceful holiday with no whinging! The food is fantastic with a different theme every night, so you never get bored with the selection. There are speciality restaurants on site and we have tried them all. The Mandarin Restaurant is our favourite! The entertainment is fab, very professional and English is always spoken first, which makes it easier for us Brits! Can't wait til June 2006!!!

FANTASTIC!! We have been back to Lykia World now 3 times, so for people who say they never go back to the same place that's saying something. Our Last visit was June 2005 (previous visits 2002 2004)It just gets better and better with improvements every time we go. We stayed in a family village room which was lovely the bath room is to die for, the biggest shower I've been in.
The kids love it (7 and 15) it's so safe. My son whos 15 met up with people he new from previous holidays so it show that it's not just us that return, It was funny seeing familar faces.

Our friends we went on holiday with(we meet them on holiday in the carribean) came last year for the first time and loved it so much they returned with us this year, they have now booked to return this October (twice in one year, lucky buggers!)

We plan to try some where different next year (theres a big world out there) but already we are having problems finding somewhere that compares to Lykia World, I have a feeling we will end up back at Lykia World.

If anyone out there knows of some where just as good please let me know pjsasmith@aol.com.

All I can say is BOOK IT! and find out for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

They also have a repeaters scheme going so if you do go make sure you register as soon as you get there. We got £220.00 off this years bill because of money we spent last year, you can also use the points to upgrade your room (didn't feel the need, our room was lovely (K203).

In 2004, I visited Lykia World for the 2nd time....I've been on holiday every single year for 18years, and we have NEVER visited anywhere twice....cos we new we could always find somewhere better!! However, in 2003, we new that within 1week into our holiday at Lykia World, we would be returning in 2004....It is unbelieveable, I don't know where to start! I think the first thing that should be mentioned, in case there are any teenagers reading- is that the evening disco is great, and then when that finishes (at midnight) the on-site nightclub opens until god knows what time...I sometimes was walking back to the apartment at 6am!! Secondly, the themed nights and the whole of the entertainment is brilliant...they often have whole nights centred around different themes...over my 2years at Lykia, I experienced Toga Night(HUGE pool party for everyone)...Tropical Night, Ice Party, Western Night and Harley Davidson night.....they were all sooooo goood....what next......food....the food is so good, and there is a unbelievable amount of variety, we chose to eat at the Marina restraunt on most nights, as its slightly cooler than the other ones, as it is entirely outside, and right on the beach. When we heard that it was a buffet, we were quite worried, just incase we would be queing for hours in the heat....but I can honestly say that I didnt que once. The buffets are layed out in the biggest areas....so its very spacious and relaxed...another bonus is being able to have as much local wine/beer/soft drinks as you like at meal times!! During the day, I stayed around the pool and sometimes did the pool games, which are all organised really well and all the animation team aim to get everyone involved....then I speant the later part of the day on the beach, where they have this big floating 'thing' out in the sea that everyone can sunbathe on! The water was gorgeously warm....The reason that we went to Lykia World in the first place is because both sets of aunties and uncles had recommended it to us, so we thought we would give it a try...they both have children under 9...and they are going back for a 4th time...it is so great for both adults and children, because adults don't see there children, and children don't have to see their mum and dad!! There is so so so so soooo much for children to do, and the kids clubs are really safe and professional. There is a giagantic pool and childrens area called Childrens Paradise, where they even have mini toilets designed just for the kids...then for the adults there is a lovely pool (which my mum and dad speant a great deal of time in) especially for adults..I sometimes went down there, and it is really peaceful. I could go on for days and days about how brilliant this place is, for every single age...one last thing I would like to mention though, is how many friends I made..there are so many young kids and teenagers there, and the main pool tends to attract that age group (thats where the music is played all day, and where the games/competitions are held)..the adults tend to stick around one of the other FOURTEEN pools!! I don't really like talking about Lykia World now though, cos it makes me sad that I'm not going back this year (there are so many other places in the world, and we are determined to find somewhere better....although I think it's going to be quite unlikely)! So to anyone even considering Lykia World, stop considering and just GO!! It truly is, amazing...I'm jealous of you all :-( Have fun! (Newton Abbot)

Lykia world is one of the best places that we have been to in a long time. What
we can say about this place can be summed up in one word EXCELLANT. The rooms
food and facilities just cannot be beaten. The childrens club is ab-fab for the
kids as they give them plenty to do. The kids show at the end of the week is so
professional and all credit must go to all the entertainment staff, quick name
check for nancy, gorkan, stephanie, boris, so numerous to mention but you all know who you are (respect).And thanks for giving us a brilliant holiday. One more thanks to Sam Clarke who works for thomas cook in the big W in Rotherham for pointing us in the right direction for this little bit of paradise in Turkey.We will be going back in 2005 that is a cert.

this holiday was the best we have ever been on, my children went to the kids club every day and thought it was fantastic, they didn't want to come home. the only downfall we had is that the room was slighty to small as we had an additional single bed and a cot in it. we will definately be booking to return to lykia world but we will be staying in the residence next time. we found all the staff were brilliant especially with the kids.

Great place but watch the waiters and bar staff if you are taking teenage girls, they are a pest and do not understand NO; besides that brilliant facilities, and in October the weather was great not too hot; but good enough for a tan

"We took a last minute break in May this year not really knowing where we wanted to go but no..."

We took a last minute break in May this year not really knowing where we wanted to go but not wishing to fly long haul. We settled on Lykia World Olu Deniz because we were offered very little else as a viable alternative (we were rigid on dates). So arriving at Lykia World, with no expectations and after a long and arduous transfer, we were pleasantly surprised. Arriving in the early hours of the morning, we didn't bother going to bed just unpacked and watched the sun come up over the bay. We stayed in the village as opposed to the residence but managed to get one of the residence receptionists to give us a sneak look at the accommodation and found it to be far superior. Our overall experience was a fantastic one. As the week went on we found ourselves more and more relaxed. The staff, or 'animators' as Lykia World calls them, were friendly, fun and mostly bi-lingual. Resort guests appeared mostly german in origin with a few British guests, but not many. I think this resort shines for children and indeed our only regret was that we left ours at home! In the children's areas there is a petting zoo, a multitude of swimming pools, shaded activity areas and even their own theatre. We left feeling a little guilty. We have gone some way towards redeeming ourselves by booking our return for August 2003 with children! I have to say that with so many places to see in the world I am never one to return to the same place twice, Lykia World was excellent and I am happy to break with that tradition! One tip I would definitely leave you with is to take the trip to the mud baths and turtle beach on your last day. Apart from being great fun (apparently it takes 10 years off you)! JMC will organise the use of a hotel room and dinner 20 minutes from Dalaman which will save you from that arduous transfer for those opting for night flights. To sum up? Go!

Saw this holiday on a travel programme on the tv and it sounded wonderful. It was. The journey from the airport to the site is something to be believed round all those mountain roads, but worth it for the rest of the holiday. Take a look at the website and you will see what a wonderful place this truly is.

Very good facilities, activities and clubs (in sessions for under 3s) upto about 9.30pm 6/7 days a week for children of all ages, including infants. If using a pushchair note that it is very hilly with lots & lots of steps. Staff are very friendly and helpful, but German is the main tourist language spoken although English is quite common. We stayed in the Residence and accommodation definitely was better than what the Village looked like, also for young children the Village rooms only have showers no baths, are on more floors and generally further up the hill away from everything.

I have travelled extensively in the past 40 years! This place was SUPERB!!! There is something for everyone--all to the highest standards.(I am well known for complaining but there was NOTHING to criticise!!!). We stayed in 'The Residence' and found it perfect. FOOD--Excellent DRINK--decent wine (not gut-rot), lager or soft drinks served with meals. Children's clubs--catered for many ages--25 trained adults worked wonderfully with all the ages (I am an ex Primary Head so quickly grasp if an adult working with children has got what it takes!)Masses of activities for ALL of ALL ages. We booked to go again within 2 days of getting back to the U K. We asked ourselves, 'Where do we go from here?'Check out Lykia World's own web site---IT IS ALL TRUE!!!! Honestly.

This hotel is the very best hotel I have been to in my life! It has a wide range of activities for all. The JMC brochure does not do this hotel justice. It has over 6 restrunts to pick from and 19 swimming pools of which 2 are adult only. The childrens faciltys are also of a very high standerd. They will look after your kids from 7 in the morning untill 9 at night, and yes they do take your kids for all 3 meals. The programe is well thought out as the instructers will organise the activitys so your children will allways be in the shade. This hoilday was extremely relaxing. The only criticism I can give this hotel is that ever since it has always be fully booked!!!!!!!

The brochure does not do this place justice at all. Spent a week here in May 2001 - never understood why people go back to the same place year after year but I do now! The whole experience is great, but what made it for us was the beauty of the location, the food and drink and the quality of the children's club. Our 4 year old daughter cried when it was time to go home. We re-booked immediately for a forthnight in May this year. Very highly recommended.
