A Friend's Experience: Sign by Ersan Hotel - Bodrum, Turkey

My friend recently visited Bodrum, Turkey for the first time and was looking for resorts, I gave her a few names, although I've never been there, and they opted for their own choice of Sign by Ersan.  She loved it so much that she wanted to share her experience.  As a couple they have been excessively pampered in this boutique hotels which has a resort also but more suited for families.  
زارت صديقتي بودروم في تركيا لأول مرة في حياتها واختاروا فندق اسمه ساين باي ايرسان وتابعبله منتجع عائلي ايرسان بس تقول ان الفندق اريح من المنتجع.  دلعوهم على الأخير وحبت أشارك تجربتها بالصور في البلوق. بعض الصور لغرف شافوها وما اسكنوا فيها.

My Stay at Katikies in Santorini, Greece

The second hotel we stayed in in Santorini, Greece was Katikies.  One of the best hotels according to Conde Naste Traveller among others and an award winner.  the main reason of choosing to stay at another hotel, especially being a well known hotel like this, was the location.  It was very difficult to move around during our stay in Grace Santorini, so we wanted to be in Oia, which I think is the best place to be at when visiting the island.  And you won't miss the beautiful sight of the Caldera in Katikies.
ثاني فندق سكنا فيه في جزيرة سانتوريني هو فندق كاتيكيز وهو من أشهر الفنادق في الجزيرة وفائز بكثير من الجوائز.  السبب الرئيسي لتغير فندقنا خلال الرحلة كان الموقع وهو يقع في منطقة إيا وهو المكان الأنسب برأيي للسكن والمشي فيه مو متعب مثل الفندق الأول والشارع بالضبط عند الفندق غير ان في ممشى طويل كله مطاعم ومقاهي ومحلات.  اضافة ما راح يطوفكم منظر الكالديرا لأنه مقابل الغرف.

Out & About in Santorini, Greece


 Red Beach, most famous beach on the island near the excavation site of Akitori
 Another famous crowded beach, with black sand
 A great place to try real Santorini produce! The woman who runs this shop plants and creates the producst she sells.  I loved their cherry tomato paste. We got great stuff from this shop and best of all she gives you a tasting of most to everthing in the shop.
