Hotels With Water Parks
Many of the all inclusive hotels in Turkey offer some sort of water park or splash park for the kids. It is worth checking to see what's on offer and whether they will be open when you stay before you book as it can vary from hotel to hotel. Due to the size of some of the resorts, many have large, expansive pools that you could easily get lost in, with kids pools available too. Alternatively you could book a hotel and buy tickets to a nearby water park like Aqua Dream Water Park in Marmaris or Adaland in Kusadasi.
Hotels With Swim Up Rooms
Several of the resorts in Turkey feature swim up rooms, a wonderful upgrade if you fancy treating yourself to a little something special or simply like a bit of extra privacy. It's worth noting these aren't usually exclusively private pools. Instead they are often shared with your neighbours but only people staying in those rooms can use the pool. Some great hotels in Turkey which offer swim up rooms include the Hilton Dalaman Sarigerme Resort & Spa in Dalaman, the Rixos Premium Belek, and the Paloma Finesse Side in Antalya.
