TUI Magic Life Jacaranda

The TUI Magic Life Jacaranda is almost overflowing with places to eat, drink and swim. Plus, the beach is only across the road. A real crowd pleaser, this family-friendly hotel provides memories that will last a lifetime.

The main pool is so large that there’s a bridge to cross from one side to the other. By the water, ice-cream carts and a pool bar invite you to stay cool. However, you may find that kids bypass this to head straight to the splash park.

For food, you’re spoiled for choice with a buffet restaurant, five a la carte options and a coffee house. After your evening meal, there are games for the family to enjoy together. After this, there are shows in the hotel’s own amphitheatre.

Overview of Side

The TUI Magic Life Jacaranda is a 15-minute taxi journey away from the centre of Side. With endless beaches, cultural hotspots and a swish marina, Side is a destination that really sparkles. An increasingly popular destination for holidays to the Antalya region, Side offers ancient ruins, sandy beaches and glistening waterfalls.

From the 150 restaurants to the crumbling pillars that line the amphitheatres, Side really is a destination for everyone. You can jump on a jet ski, admire a monument that’s thousands of years old and pick up some bargains from the bazaar, all on the same day.

Things to do in Side

Side’s a family-friendly destination that has really stood the test of time. For the ‘wow factor’, head to the harbour’s mega yachts, glitzy restaurants and two ample beaches.

If you’re more of a history buff than a beach lover, then head to the Temple of Apollo. Believed to be the place where Anthony and Cleopatra first met, it remains a popular spot for romantics and honeymooners. The temple may date back to ancient times, but it’s just as impressive today. Plus, its harbourside location makes it perfect for those all-important holiday snaps.

A stay at the TUI Magic Life Jacaranda will leave a permanent smile on the face of every family member. You won’t even make it back home before the kids will ask when you can return.

Resort Summary

The former playground of the Greeks and Romans, Side is a coastal resort of epic proportions. It’s also rumoured to be the holiday spot of history’s first power couple, Antony and Cleopatra. Found on a little peninsula on Turkey’s southern coast, this town is sandwiched between two scenic beaches and dotted with ancient ruins.

Nearby nature resorts keep things subdued while watersports on the coast up the energy. Days at the beach and Instagramming the crumbling columns of the Temple of Apollo are all good fun during cheap holidays to Turkey, but sundown is when Side really comes to life.
