I've been to the Era many times since 2010 with Friendship Travel and I love it. I wanted to go back this year as usual, but due to the downturn in tourism in Turkey, my usual direct Monday morning Thomas Cook flight has been cancelled (Thursdays only) so I couldn't fit into FT's Monday to Monday schedule. OK, I could have gone the long haul way through Gatwick or such like but didn't want the hassle of transfers and long waits at airports.
Luckily there was an alternative. This year the Era is open to independent guests as well as FT. Same all inclusive deal, transfers provided. And the Era is open all season, even when it's not available to FT. I'm going back in August, independent again. Quite apart from the flight thing, I couldn't get time off work to fit into FT'S dates.
So if there's anybody reading this who really,really wants to go back to the Era, singles, couples, (no kids) book independently. Ergun and Raziye will welcome you and look after you. You may or may not have the company of FT guests, either way it's all good.
P.S. I had a lovely holiday and am counting the days till the next one.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The all-inclusive three-star Hotel Era in Hisaronu Turkey is a small, family-run hotel exclusively for single travellers. It has just 20 en suite rooms and guests enjoy sole occupancy of a double room. It has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the focus of the hotel is the super swimming pool, surrounded by good-sized terraces with sun-beds for everyone. Authentic Turkish touches include the wood panelling in the bar, the hubble bubble pipe and the hammocks hanging in the gardens. A short stroll leads to small shops, bars and restaurants and a short dolmus ride leads to the Blue Lagoon. ... more less
