Jthe residence pool at ic green palace lara beach turkeyust booked our Easter 2015 break at the hotel we went to last year - A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

IC Green Palace, Antalya, Lara Beach

There are two sections to this hotel, the main hotel with umpteen restaurants, pools and cafes, shops etc. and then The Residence. We booked the hotel as this kids are old enough to explore the grounds and try out the kid’s pool etc. The Residence was the exclusive area with privileged accommodation and service.

The Residence

We almost accidentally booked into the Residence area of this hotel, a smallish complex of Lake Villas in the exclusive area of the IC Palace Hotel.

private pool at the residence at night at ic green palace lara beach turkeyWhat we got

We went on an all-inclusive basis in the two bed Lake Villa... The hotel is 5 stars so has the TV, hairdryer, air con etc. and the terrace lead out on to the swimming pool that had sole use by the villas. The mini bar was included too and was stocked with alcohol and soft drinks, nuts and chocolate...

The Lake Villas had their own restaurant, a la carte with buffet overlooking another pool just for the Residence Villas PLUS via a short path there was a private beach, where on arrival fresh fruit appeared and towels were waiting! The umbrellas and soft sunbeds were enticing and the blue sea was inviting!

We planned to use the restaurants but actually didn’t eat away from The Residence...

All facilities

The Residence residents have access to all the hotels facilities, so slides, pools restaurants etc., so there’s no chance of missing out! On the other hand the non-Residence guests were not allowed to sue the facilities of the Residence's pool, restaurant or beach!

Thomas Cook

We flew with Thomas Cook and as always, their service is perfectly acceptable... The website doesn’t really split the hotel up into the distinct differences, so if you want The Residence, the ensure you opt for the LAKE VILLAS as this earns you the special treatment for very few extra pennies / Lira.

This was our first holiday to Turkey and the rave reviews from fellow holibobbers at how amazing this hotel was, makes me wonder whether we'd go anywhere else in Turkey... ]

I am open to suggestions!

phase eight purple blouse gold shoes and bagA one stop shop at @phaseeight - and I am very pleased with myself.

I do get a little fed up when I buy an outfit for a lovely evening with friends or mum's night out and then it stays in the wardrobe forever. Well, you cant wear the same top again on another night out can you?

So, I have been determined to buy a nice top or trousers and accessories, which will look fabulous for my pals and then be perfect for work too...

They say 'if you did it the first time around, then you shouldn't do it the next time around!' BUT I cant resist a parka.

Cold Drizzily Mornings

We seem to get a lot of damp fog where I live, and this morning is no exception. Three miles down the road and it's glorious sunshine but at this time of year crisp!

Break the rule

I have broken that fore-said rule and bought myself a parka - there are so many to choose from in various colours... fur lined, fuzzy hood, blue, khaki green, detatchable lining etc...

My Choice

I went for the adjustable waist band as I really prefer to emphasis my waist, as clearly I am not thin, and adding a large coat doesnt help... I have to nip the waist line in!

Grey Mint Velvet Padded Parka £169.00 at John Lewis

This lightly padded (always a good thing), flattering drawstring waist, gorgeous fur trim!
