Jimbo, I visited again last month and the place is still great. I think Mahmutlar has a very European feel with lovely wide streets and very pleasant people. If you want hustle and bustle it's just down the road in Alanya

Re: mahmutlar

Jim,

Mahmutler is fine for a holiday. We visit regularly - some good restaurents, great small resort feel. The basic problem is far too many apartments have been built for the foreign market. There are several developments which will never be finished and dozens more which are in serious trouble. Even if no new developments are started it will take years to absorb all these unsold apartments.

I would be VERY careful buying into this market. You need to do your homework and buy into one of the better blocks. Prices are UNCERTAIN. What is an apartment worth when there is such a massive oversupply? If you buy you will have problems reselling. Mahmutler is not an investment area. On the other hand if you are savvy you can pick up a bargain and enjoy holidays or living in Turkey.

Re: mahmutlar

Hi welcome to the forum, Alanya is a large city but with the added bonus of also being a holiday resort so you get the best of both really, weather wise October is lovely and warm, t-shirt and shorts without the intense heat so great for site seeing, but can get a bit chilly in the evening, so bring something warm, also you can get the odd thunder storm which are quite dramatic and great to watch.

I'm sure someone else will be along with something else to add soon, have a good holiday.

Jane

Re: mahmutlar

Hi Hovis welcome to the forum
i live in Tosmur which is next door to Oba in fact you can hardly tell which is which nowadays.
Oba is a great place to stay or live, some nice restaurants and with easy access to the beach. Alanya centre is about 10 minutes by bus or you can walk there its an easy walk(for some..not for me) the beach road is lovely flat and with places to sit and relax all the way along into the town.
the weather in October is generally good, hopefully you might see a drop of rain as by October we are looking forward to a cooling shower.

Re: mahmutlar

Hi, I have an apartment in Mahmutlar and I really like the place - my friends and family usually stay there. My friends are in their 20s and 30s and well travelled and they loved Mahmutlar. Its not the hustle and bustle of Alanya but locals are friendlyand always make you feel welcome. Everytime I go back it gets better due to the improvements they are continuing to do. I guess for a holiday its a good place to chill and relax and at your own pace. Yes there is over some over development but hey that does not affect me I face out onto the sea.
I have to say in the two years i have been going to Mahmutlar Ive never come across one english person Where are you all !! and the only place I have travelled in the world where I have been bitten by the Mosquitoes Have a great time

I assume you meant haven't been bitten by mosquitoes, at least they have never troubled me. I have noticed on previous visits that the council spray all the drains to keep them under control. I too am impressed with the improvements, especially the outdoor gym by the traffic lights.
