Palmetto is set in beautiful gardens in a quieter area of Selimiye. The village has a great marina, super range of restaurants and very welcoming hosts. There is none of the pressure that is sometimes apparent in other Turkish resorts. The room we were allocated was fine, but had a view overlooking the school. There was no problem to upgrade...

An excellent place to relax and have a rest. For 8 years we always come back to this place with my husband. You have the sea, a swimming pool, nice breakfast, clean rooms and excellent fish restaurant. Always ready, kind and helpful staff, the lady at reception and her little daughter, all wonderful people.

Pool is a nice size and although only 6 sunbeds there isnt room for more. But plenty in the adjoining garden and on the pontoon. We... More

I agree with the "Quiet Idyll" review, we had read the reviews before we went and I can honestly say ALL the negative ones were totally unfounded! The staff couldn't do enough for you, the rooms a re spotless and the bedding and towels are changed everyday. The food in the hotel for breakfast improved by the weekend once the... More

Firstly, Seliminye is a quiet unspoilt holiday village with few foreign tourists, so it is not for those who want a busy night life. The Palmetto appears to be one of the best hotels and pensions in town. We found the other criticisms on this site now unfounded. The bathroom, although perhaps not suited to the larger person, was perfectly... More

The Palmetto has the potential to be a lovely little hotel, charming reception and hardworking room staff, nice, large, if a bit dated, rooms, great position, excellent swimming pool, but with only 9 sun beds could have been a bit awkward if hotel had been full, well established gardens and fantastic position on the bay. But: •The gardens were overgrown,... More

A medium resort, that has seen better days. Oldish deco, average bathroom (with dripping basin). Pool in the shadows quite soon in the afternoon, which may suit you, or not. Good breakfast buffet, apart from the drinks (nescafé for coffee). Absent staff. In a word, much too expensive for the quality offered.

Thanks for your feedback. For info, the hotel is only 11 years old and I can advise that all rooms will be renovated over the winter, including complete renewal of bathrooms, re decoration throughout plus new flooring, curtains and so on. Whilst I note your favourable comment about our breakfast buffet, this will be further enhanced next summer and we... More

We returned to the Palmetto but were very disappointed with a number of things:- Rooms not cleaned on two days and when I complained the manager was most unhelpful and seemed to think this was OK. The swimming pool had a green line which I and other guestes who had stayed before complained about. We were fobbed off by the... More
