We have a house on an older site, Palmiye, straight up from the main centre, we love the house but we have 2 children who love the sea but also a swimming pool, are there any in akbuk open to the public?
I think the Derby hotel pool is open, as long as you buy drinks from the bar, this was couple of years ago, but worth a try, although it's only a few meters from the sea so might as well just swim in the sea.
The Derby pool is open but ask if you can use it if you buy some drinks, as in the past they have added a charge on afterwards for `use of pool`.
Just make sure you know what you are paying before you use it.
Thank you both, ive only spent 1 day in Akbuk so far, plan on going again in Aug to try to get to know it better as I didnt have long enough to make a judgement, although the views and sights looked gorg and did manage to enjoy a lovely lunch at Pizza Hiati ( i think thats what its called) .Can I ask where is the Derby and Oracle?
There is also a new beautiful pool at Mandalya Gardens complex which is open to the public if you use their bar and restaurant. Great menu especially for kids and it is in a beautiful location. They will pick you up and drop you home as well I gather or you could get a local taxi. Well worth a visit! There is also a wonderful new pool opened up at the University in Akbuk open to public. I went past there the other day and it looks very inviting and there is entertainment there for the kids all day apparently. You can get the bus from Akbuk centre there and it certainly is worth a visit.
Thanks for your comment. I am an owner at Mandalya Gardens and we do pay quite high maintenance fees which we don't mind given the quality of the complex but I for one will not be very pleased if lots of members of Joe Public get to use the facilities free of charge.
eadie, did they state that they were going to open the facilities to the general public when you purchased? If they didn't i would get together with other like minded owners on your complex and see what can be done about it. Not fair at all if you weren't notified and having to pay a service/maintenance charge when they are gaining an income from your facilities.
I see that Mandalya Gardens (looks stunning by the way) are advertising their restaurant a lot in the local paper for celebrations and weddings etc with free pick ups.
Thank you all for the information, I also wouldnt be happy if I had to pay monthly maintenance fees on sites only for other people to use, not knowing Akbuk I didnt know whether there were any public pools or Hotels, i would imagine that most of our time would be spent on day trips,boat trips and around the beach but I know at some stage my kiddies would say "can we go to a Pool".
Can anyone tell me the way to the University then from the centre?
Sorry I did not see this question from you. It is a short Dolmus ride from the centre of Akbuk. I don't know how well you know the area, but if you get a dolmus going to soke or altinkum you come out of akbuk and then pass a stretch of water with a fish stall on the side, then there is the Caprice, Holiday Hotel, and the University is sort of the next stop, but you may need to ask the driver to make the trip to the University. I have noticed that out of term time the buses don't go down the road. (I assume that is where is the pool is situated) - looking forward to exploring in August!
