Found 18th May
After the holiday I had booked was cancelled due to collapse of the the travel agent, I spent a bit of time looking around for replacement (last minute) holidays.

Attempting a few different options on the Thomas Cook site meant I was able to bring up the above deal, which works at £459 per person for an all inclusive, 1 weeks holiday, with flights.

Follow these steps:

1. Search for the following. This is a critical step as a standard search for these dates does not bring up this deal. It is also vital you remove the 'I'm Flexible' tick box and choose the hotel specifically as shown here in the search box.

You will then be presented with the following price

2941455.jpg
Enter promo code TURKEY at check out to get this down to £1839, only £459 per person for a weeks all inclusive.

There is nothing else on the thomas cook site even close to this deal for a well rated hotel on these dates

This deal will go quickly so act fast....

There are other pools and children’s splash play areas. If Turkey is not a place you would visit, I am not sure why you would even open a deal that clearly states it in the title.

How you choose to spend your money is completely your choice....

To ask for an explanation why you wouldn't go, is a question that should be answered.

If you didn't want people to ask it, then don't write it in a forum based website.

Just scroll past the deal next time.
What I don't get is people posting opinion but refusing to explain. Why bother posting the opinion in the first place? Why do you want to make people aware that you're too good for Turkey but won't say why? And to even reply saying I don't have to tell you, why waste the effort at all? If you said I wouldn't go because of x, or have you considered y, it would make sense. This is just like posting I wouldn't buy a sony in a phone deal but refusing to elaborate, the whole post becomes a waste of everyones time including the person who posted it. Why not just stay out of the deal?

I can only assume that like me you people are procrastinating, desperately avoiding doing real work so posting blindly on forums so at least it sounds like you are typing?

I'd happily go if it was free, but I live near Stoke on Trent so Turkey aint that bad
Holidays like this in the holidays to Turkey in past year or two are a lot cheaper than this I'm sure
Thank you for the post. Some people need to learn to appreciate the effort of others. If something is not for you then you dont have to comment.
I also wouldn't go anywhere near Turkey.

It's a real shame others then try to offend with insults how people choose to spend their own hard earnt money.

My own personal advice, if asked by my family or friends, is to avoid the place.

For anyone that decides to risk it, good luck to them.

Wouldn't it be even more helpful if you could briefly give your reasons for not wanting to go to Turkey? People could then decide if your reasons applied to them, or not.

The thing is, I don't need to explain how I choose to spend my money to anyone.

Turkey is, and will remain on my avoid at all costs list.
I can understand people's rejection of Turkey on the grounds of Erdogan's regime, but as a holiday destination it's still one of the best at lower prices. Resorts are generally good standard, as are beaches and facilites. Weather is ideal most of the year (although Summer holidays might be a bit warm...) and the cost of excursions is vastly better than most other destinations - you can get a day out on a boat with food for less than £12 per person if you go outside of resort reps.

Obviously it depends where you are in Turkey - personally I wouldn't be going too far East due to the Syrian border conflicts, but the West side is absolutely fine. Last time I went was 1 week after the Coup attempt and you wouldn't know anything had happened.

My point is, please appreciate and empathise that we are all fighting our own battles, every day. What is not right for you, may help others. My intent is to simply help out a family that are looking for a holiday and may have been in the same situation as me. Travel agency went bust, I had no holiday.

I have spent the last 2 days researching all inclusive hotel in a variety of location. Deals to turkey (non- all inclusive) can be had cheaper, but my experience of all inclusive is that the price above is pretty much all I pay for the whole week.

Informed opinion is what helps. Those blindly stating "avoid Turkey" do not help others to be informed, plus do not give any idea as to whether they are informed themselves (and in what way), so it does end up as just a throw-away comment. As has been intimated before, it then renders the posting of the comment completely pointless, maybe apart from to serve to antagonise.

No-one is being asked to explain how - or why - they spend their money, but if someone is suggesting to someone else how they should not be spending their money, surely it is only natural to want to know why.
This thread has taken a different turn to how I expected. hope it helps someone
Just looking at holidays, but 19th July isn't the school summer holidays for us here in Swindon.
I'd happily pull the kids out, but Mrs B is a teacher.

No but I would expect the emergency response and managment to a terrorist attack to be second to non in London, I doubt the same can be said about holiday resorts in Turkey

Risk what? I've been so have most people I know and it's a beautiful country with loads of history. Be prepared to spend some time at the airport though because there taking there time to protect us because single minded people like yourself believe there is a danger there.. but by all means go sight seeing in London or maybe a gig in Manchester.

I've actually been to Marmaris unlike your 'mate down the pub'.
I can tell you the worst people there are the holiday makers.
The locals tolerate them because of the money they bring in to the economy.
If that kind of attitude were brought to this country by foreign holiday makers, there would be an outcry.,
I've never been to Turkey and I kinda understand why people might want to avoid, given what's happening further east, but we're talking about the Mediterranean coastal resorts here aren't we? And they will be no more dangerous than similar in Greece, Cyprus or even Spain.

I despair of the Brits Abroad stories in Europe so would want to avoid completely. Sticking to the Mediterranean resorts, what are the more 'classy' ones, good for young families?

Might be a bit late to the fray but I really appreciate seeing holiday deals on here. I had a fantastic holiday in Kos last year (yes we put up with minor earthquakes!) thanks to North.and.South's post and also taken a couple of lovely short breaks thanks to posters on here.

So Bill puts down people for expressing opinion by voicing his own opinion?
Thomas crook again, Turkey is good but not with crooks from Thomas.
Ok so focusing again on the original deal. I've stayed at the Cettia 3 times and really enjoyed it. Interestingly enough it was usually full of repeat guests and the staff said they got booked up quickly by the same people year on year.

My tip would be to actually go for the 1 bed apartment as this isn't in the main hotel block but in the apartment block which has its own separate pool area and is much more pleasant. You can still use the main hotel facilities but it has a different restaurant and is easier to get a sun lounger at. The hotel guests aren't allowed to use the apartment block's facilities. Plus the apartments were pretty nice - lovely kitchen/living room area and you had the choice of different levels of board (we usually went B&B as food is cheap and lots of restaurants nearby to choose from). Fully inclusive is only up at the hotel and wasn't anything to write home about tbh. It was easy to upgrade to half board if you wanted at reception but this was a couple of years ago so may have changed.

Yes Marmaris can be loud but we were there as a family with a 5-8 year old daughter and we had a lovely time. Used to stroll into town in the evenings and as long as you avoid the egg and chips brigade pubs, found it nice enough for shopping and food.

A kind messge to the person who hates turkey and wouldn't go for free.
I went last year and honestly YOU WILL GET 10 PEOPLE PROTECTING YOU FROM DANGER!
They are so nice and caring people that i think we dont have in this country.
They have already lost a lot of western tourists but where is anyone safe??
It's like me saying "don't go to London because you will get killed or mugged".
Turkey is so rubbish that I spent a ton of cash taking my 8 and 6yr olds to Disney World this year, stayed at 4 and 5* hotels and cut loose with the wallet for once.

As we arrived back in the UK:

Me: "What holiday was your best ever kids?"
Kids: "Turkey"
Me: "..."

Obviously it depends a lot on where you stay, but I'll be going back next year probably.
