Presa di Finica

OK, so I was confused. We are staying at the Presa di Finica Resort at Finike which is SW of Antalya about the same distance as Alanya is to the SE of Antalya. We are semi-enjoying our holiday. The resort is lovely, beach wonderful, water wonderful, food good, rip-off artists everywhere as always over charging tourists but the excursion we took to Myra on Saturday was good value for the money. Everything is perfect except...

Big problem is Air Conditioning works only periodically and does not work properly when it is on. Ventilation fan runs when patio doors are closed but AC hours are from 6:30 am to 9:00 am; 3:30 pm to 7:00 pm and 10:30 pm to 2:00 am. Even when it is on, it is hard to tell the difference in air temp. We slept on the balcony every night just to survive the heat in the room.

Tanya is MAD! That is something you never want aimed at you, and you can be sure I will tread carefully all my days that it is never aimed at me. She bitched at everyone she could find all week so today they put us in a suite for our last two days. We are not sure the AC works any better but it is certainly a nicer room. When we get home we are both writing letters to the Presidents of the hotel and the tour company to ask why they spoil a wonderful place with cheap AC.

The front desk was not helpful about internet either. Tried to sell us 15 Euro cards for one hour wifi. So this morning the girl at the Customer Relations desk says that there is wifi here that doesn’t need a card from the desk. Sure enough. 10 Euro for 300 minutes on credit card. But even better, I found a high speed cable just asking to plug into my laptop, so it is free.

We will be home Tuesday and I am looking forward to it, though once we learned to ignore the AC and simply pretended it didn’t exist it was easier as all else is perfect in my books.


  1. I love the homes built into the mountain. OMG. I want to go there.

  2. Be careful what you wish for. Oh, you didn't mean live there? Those are tombs from either Lydian or Hellenic times.
    This country is so full of old cities that were ruined by earthquakes. They are everywhere. Civilization here runs back about 5 or 10,000 years or even more.

  3. Wow! Finally I got a website from where I know how to truly obtain useful facts concerning my study and knowledge.

  4. My brother recommended I may like this web site.

    He was entirely right. This submit truly made my day.
    You cann't believe just how so much time I had spent for this information! Thank you!
    Feel free to visit my page ; clean my pc

  5. I was curious if you ever thought of changing
    the page layout of your website? Its very well written;
    I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could
    a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
