It is a very nice hotel however the service is really poor although the people ar every nice and try to do their best. The extra prices are extremly high according to even higher level hotels. Not much to do around if you are an active person. The place is just for relaxing, good food, sipping you wine and reading... More

Wow - just wow! I only write reviews when I think somewhere is exceptional and this place really is. I absolutely felt like I was staying in a luxury resort - from the beautiful island and delicious food to the exceptional service. Eating our four course dinner while watching the sunset was the highlight of my day! The beauty of... More

I've never seen such a turistic place in Turkey, the island's nature, sea and the location was unbelievable, The deluxe room was great but not worth to pay for it. Standart room is enough because you spent all of your time at the beach and on the island. Beyond the island, the stuff of the hotel was great. The director... More

We stayed at Kalem Island as external guests, meaning we did not book one of the 29 hotel rooms, but we were day guests as the resort accepts an extra 20 guests on a daily basis from outside who pay an entrance fee of 75 TL to access the island. The welcoming to the island is wonderful. You are picked... More

Checked in on the 25th of august 2013, stayed for 1 night, because we were passing by. Very lovely boutique hotel. Nice environment, clear waters, a small beach with cabbanas and everything. Food is tasteful, and the site is well organized. Most important of all toughts shared, I would visit again, altough a little pricey. Afternoon wind is typical, but... More

We stayed for only one night at the Olivera Resort as we drove down the coast towards Cesme in July. The setting is fantastic. The island and its well maintained garden, make you feel you are staying somewhere exotic such as the Maldivs or Carribean. The beach side area is well organized with plenty of shady space for the small... More

A boutique resort with just 29 rooms, so never fully packed,also during the peak season. The rooms are very clean, the stuff are very friendly, the prices are not cheap but also not expensive. The activities at the resort are scuba diving and spa. I tried Bali massage for 80 €, which is not cheap but the massage ladies are... More

To those individuals who choose to read this review you should know I typically do not spend writing reviews for resorts or hotels whose business it is to offer excellent services to the guest. In this case, from the time that we checked in at Oliviera, until the time we checked out we were treated as VIPs and my sense... More

One of the nicest and peaceful place anyone should experience. Amazing nature full of beautiful flowers and trees. The sea,the beach,the gardens everything is just perfect. I was there twice and the first time was not that great but I loved the area so I wanted to come back and last year (August 2011) it was different,it was way better.... More

I completely agree with most of the reviews: the sea and the nature is fantastic,the hotel is so relaxing. However, although the staff is polite and helpful the service is so slow and weak. Also the fee of the extra food/beverages are so high. Ideal just for a weekend holiday, not worth to spend your whole vacation.
