How long is the transfer from Izmir? We normally grab a cab rather than bus or coach transfers?

Not interested in night club or roast dinners etc "Brits " abroad culture but do like a few bars and variety of restaurants to have dinner in - happy to walk 10-20 mins from hotel every evening - also happy to pay ish £ for dinner at night for 2 - does this sound like our sort of place ?

Looking at the Radisson hotel initially

Greatly appreciate any comments

Transfer from the airport to Cesme is 60 to 75 minutes. A private driver is cheaper than a taxi, price this fall around tl 250,- one way. Easy to find with Google. A very good option is the Havas bus direct from the airport to Cesme busstation, no other stops. Costs Tl 26 pp leaving on every half hour. I would advice renting a car, Cesme is very nice, but beaches and restaurants/ bars are scaterred around. Beachclubs at Ayayorgi, bars/restaurants in Alacati and Cesme, Beaches in Ilica, Ciftliköy and Alacati Port, Fish restaurants in Dalyanköy. If you're civilized it's your place. You won't find half naked,tattooed, drunk Brits roaming the streets here. The reason why we choose to live here

If you are travelling from the airport then definitely the airport Havas bus service is the easiest.You walk out of arrivals and will find it to the right side of the exit door at the pavement.It is every hour in the summer but only every 2 hrs from Oct to May.If you stay in the centre of Cesme you are handy for all the restaurants and the marina area which is lively at night.There are very cheap dolmus buses running from there every 10 mins to all the surrounding villages and great beaches in the area.Alacati is worth a visit,especially to the market on a Saturday but unless you have a high budget the restaurants there tend to be very expensive compared to Cesme.Villa Fanti hotel near the castle we found was a good choice as they have free private parking for a hire car but are in the centre of everything so you can walk at night if you want to have a meal and a glass of wine.It is brand new and was great value for all the comfort and amenities available.There are so many great eating places that I wouldn't recommend paying for all inclusive in one of the bigger hotels where the food can be mediocre. Cesme is a beautiful,historical town with a lot of character-better to stay local and enjoy all that it has to offer.
