This little hotel looks out onto the beach, and the restaurant is first in line to take in the view.
This hotel looks out over the bay, with just a few steps leading down to the sand. Authentic restaurants are right on hand, too, and it’s just a 10-minute walk to Side’s centre.
As the Med is practically your bed-fellow, there’s no need for a pool – though the rooftop terrace has a plunge pool if you want it. Food-wise, there’s a beachfront restaurant and a café-bar for snacks.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a week in September, which is in the old part of Side very close to the harbour. We are so glad we stayed here and not in the new part of Side, which is like a concrete jungle with no character whatsoever.
We knew the hotel was dated before we arrived after reading the reviews on tripadvisor, so we knew what to expect. It is crying out for some tender loving care and a lick of paint.
The friendliness of the staff more than compensated for the shabbiness of the rooms.
Our room was on the top floor which had an amazing balcony overlooking the small sandy beach down below. (Only the top floor rooms have air conditioning) The hotel is owned by the family and this added to its charm.
The breakfast was typical Turkish, although you could have an English breakfast at an extra cost if required.
We had an amazing holiday, we dined at the hotel restaurant a few evenings and also at Sound Waves Restaurant which is also owned by the family. there are lots of other restaurants in the area with plenty of choice. We loved the hotel and the Turkish people and would certainly stay at the Beach House again, it was just what we were looking for.
There is lots to do in the area if you want it or like us it was ideal for us to chill out for the week and recharge the batteries.More
5 Star Location
If you are expecting a 5 star hotel, you will get it, but not by the conventional ratings. The rooms are simple, more than adequate for a beach hotel, clean, bright, and most have exquisite views of the sea. The breakfast is simple Turkish, again adequate. But it is the people and the location in Antik Side, amongst the ruins, that makes it 5 star. Penny & Ali and all the staff make you feel welcome & at home from the beginning. They are accommodating, helpful, offer suggestions on sites to visit. Sitting in the back garden area amongst the ruins is always relaxing, or just taking those few steps across the road down the steps to the beach. Always clean, generally crowded, calm waters, there are sunbeds for hotel guests. We have visited here numerous times these past years, and always glad to get to our relaxing place. Nothing like waking up and going to sleep to the sound of the sea.More

Beautiful Location .Hotel - disappointment.
First impression of side and the area were very favourable. As soon as we walked into the hotel we noticed how dated( not in a nice aesthetic way) and shabby. The first thing we noticed were the terrible stains on the carpet, in the hall.The large cupboard door fell off it's hinges, just missing my husbands toe. The tap in the bathroom banged very loudly when turned on. There were no water glasses in the room. No hairdrier. No plug in the wash basin .Had to send for someone to fix shower, it was very dated(in the bath) and wouldn't work. Patio doors and windows to balcony didn't lock .No air conditioning. Dirty tables on terrace.,and dirty plunge pool. No fruit for breakfast except for a small piece of melon. No orange juice(when I questioned the Thomsons rep. about this, she said) "Non of the hotels in this area offered orange juice". The beach belonging to the hotel was very dirty- with broken glass, plastic, cigarette ends etc. and umbrellas that were broken and didn't work. All in all we came to the conclusion., Thomsons had not done a very good survey of this hotel, because I'm sure it would not have passed the standards we expect of them. It's such a shame, because this hotel could have so much going for it with a little effort.,and training of the mail staff.More
Only in Side for the day but had to stop at the Beach house for a coffee.I stayed here a few years ago and have great memories of this hotel.Basic hotel with great staff and you wake up to the sound of the waves.little beach so is quite private which is nice.More

Will Be Back !!!!!
me and my wife stayed here for 2 weeks 29th july to 12th august,
firstly we were delayed by the carrier and arrived early hours on the 30th but was met with a smile, after checking in we were asked if we would like a drink or something but due to the time all we wanted to do was get some sleep, so we declined the offer and was shown to our room, the night watchman carried my wife's suitcase and offered to bring mine up but i carried it thankyou.
Room 303 was beach facing and what a view it was fantastic is an under-statement to wake up and look out to the sea was WOW !! the room had a double bed,bedside cabinet, wardrobe and a mirror with a floating drawer bathroom had a toilet, shower and washbasin the balcony was large with 2 seats and a table we attached a washing line and there was still room to move about on it fab
the staff were all warm and friendly and our washing was done for us for a small charge which we dried on our line.
breakfast was traditional and there was cereal laid out as well you also got coffee or tea, however you could purchase an english one for 20 lira.
It was our annerversary and they reserved and dressed a table up for us what more can you ask for.
they do have a plunge pool but we went into the sea every day and it was like a warm bath that how warm it was they do have sunbeds for guests these are on a raised bit but the ones next to the sea have a small charge its your choice.
First holiday i have had and can honestly say that there was still more to do trips are cheap enough visit vigo tours just up from the cheers bar next door to easy riders bar and speak to ismail does you a fantastic deal cheaper than everyone else and one at a time so you can decide when you want to go and when !!!
If you need to know more just ask and we will try to answer all
this is anteek side close to all shops temples and ruins most costing nothing and you can walk around and take pictures, the roads are closed to most traffic so its safe as well there is also side itself but most things go from anteek and you get dropped off at the ampitheatre and have to walk down to the boats.More
