Even that most advertisement about Alanya claims the opposite the sun does actually not shine all the time.
The winter break benefits everyone
Often hotel standards in Turkey are better than similar hotels in other tourist destinations. Why should this be?
The explanation is very simple. Many other travel destinations have tourists all year round and the hotels therefore have neither the time nor opportunity to maintain or renovate their buildings. Furthermore the climate in many other places is often harsher than in Turkey. Despite the winter in Alanya being both wet and windy, the temperature almost never goes below 10 degrees celsius.
It is not just in the buildings that this winter change, without the many demanding tourists, is seen but in other areas as well.
Everybody, from hotel receptionists to taxi drivers to workers at the various tourist attractions, are with very few exceptions always happy and helpful.
They do not get tired of the many visitors as they can use the whole winter to relax and be with their families!
