    Dear Sir/Madam

    My husband and I have just returned from the Grand Efe Hotel at Ozdere Turkey. This hotel is fantastic the food is good, the entertainment is brilliant and the entertainment team are fantastic for adults and children. The hotel is overlooking the sea and it is an all inclusive hotel.

    When we were there, there was only 7 British people there because British people have not heard of this hotel/place in Turkey because it is not on the major travel companies. We only heard of it through friends who work there.

    When we booked our travel agent had to book it by booking everything separate but we like booking holidays as a package so I highly recommend this hotel for your company so British people will hear about it.

    Your regards

      Hi Sue, Thank you for sharing this wonderful feedback. I’ll be sure to pass this on for you to see if it’s something we could offer as a package holiday in the future. ^Hayley

    Hi, I have been attempting to print out boarding passes for our family holiday…all the logos, headers are there, but no passenger information is appearing. Am I doing something wrong?

    Spoiled ҟittens only do what they want, when they want. Instead of you telling the cat to
    avoid the furnitսre, let the fսrniture itself tell the cat to stay away.
