Thanks for the feedback. Soon information about Alushta and the surrounding area will be renewed and will become even more. And yet, if you are looking for in these parts a place with a quiet, sparsely populated beaches, I recommend another look at Solnechnogorsk. Personally, I like it more than fishing, as something more comfortable out there, the beach is well-groomed, not as "dead" as in fishing. However if you on your car and tent in Solnechnogorskoye no normal camping as in fishing. And not to be confused with solnechnogorskaya Ulitsa. These villages are near, almost merged into one, but the beachfront in Malorechenskoye very tiny. This is my IMHO, of course, just recommend. ...

The rest chose to 2018 in the Crimea. Long thought, in what city or village to go, which hotel or hotel to choose, read many reviews, listened to the advice of friends and decided to stay at a wonderful place called the Utes at the hotel Santa Barbara 3**. I want to say, earlier, was vacationing abroad - Turkey, Egypt, Italy, Spain, in the Crimea, in Yalta, Alushta, Gurzuf, traveled on tours the whole of Crimea, but such a heavenly place not seen anywhere else. The village itself attracts with its beauty and atypical. The Utes near Alushta, in my opinion, even, is the town of Alushta to Yalta 30 minutes, i.e. convenient location, You will be able to get in the direction of Alushta is very fast, and in the direction of Yalta. A tiny village located on the mountain attracts with its coziness, little Italy. Who would have thought that in Crimea exists???)))
Regarding, hotels and accommodation. Very responsive, friendly and welcoming staff. Feel every day care of yourself! We lived in a room with a sea view. Every day you Wake up with the sea, fall asleep with the sea! Fantastic! The hotel called Santa Barbara 3**, one of the most famous hotels of the Cliff, the village itself is often called Santa Barbara. The hotel itself is located right on the waterfront, i.e. out of the hotel and here's the sea, the beach! The room has everything you need. Pleased with daily maid service, change of linen and towels every three days! At the front Desk administrators will always help, prompt, advise and not least important, will give You their smiles and warmth. We had two meals - Breakfast and lunch. Breakfast and lunch we had at the restaurant Santa Barbara over the sea, the restaurant is right on ...
