In autumn, winter and spring vacation in Turkey is comfortable thanks to hotels with outdoor heated pools and water parks. The climate is mild, always green, warm for a long time, you can swim in the sea until mid-November, and in the warm pools all year round. And in winter Turkish hotels have saunas and hammams.
When they start heating the pools in Turkey – most hotels start heating from the first of November, although this year some hotels have been heating since mid-October. The winter concept in hotels lasts until April.
For me the coolest warm pools in Turkish hotels – if they are open, and even with sea water are. A vacation with kids is the chicest when there are heated water parks with slides. Indoor heated pools, of course, will not surprise, but also good when they are at the hotel in winter (for those who are afraid of temperature extremes).
So, our detailed selection of hotels in Turkey for the low season.
Hotels with heated pools in Belek
🟢 Bellis Deluxe 5 stars with heated water park
From October to the end of November they heat an outdoor pool with slides for adults, a children’s pool with slides and an indoor pool. The water is +30 everywhere. After a technical break in December, the heated waterparks will resume its work from December 21 through the end of March.
The hotel is a hit this season for holidays in Turkey with children, with them there are engaged and entertain all day. Also people especially praise the kitchen – it is delicious and they know how to cook. A good option for the New Year by the way.
Green area, you can walk around endlessly. The atmosphere is very warm and family oriented.
🟢 Alva Donna 5* (which is in Belek)
There are several heated pools outside (water is maintained +28) – main, water park with adult slides, children’s at the mini club. The children’s interactive water park is not heated. In the indoor pool mineral water is warm.
The hotel is also very popular in the 2022 season and a great option for winter and spring. Many tourists return – more than once and in any season. Restaurants, bars, there are round the clock. Recreation is family friendly, both morning and evening entertainment, club and games for children. The staff at the hotel is very responsive, it’s nice to be taken care of like that.
Our advice is to choose a room in the new building (Deluxe).
Minuses on reviews this year – poorly cleaned, fast food in the main restaurant, as in most popular hotels.
