I am sure it is wonderful for 8 months a year. But not in winter. Rooms are too simple to enjoy inside. But outside is marvelous. I am sure the place is incredible any time except December to March. We will be here again in April. But now, we have to leave.

Everything's amazing here! The beautiful view of the lake, the natural food, and most of all, the courtesy of the personnel! It is definitely a place to stay for at least a couple of days. Thank you! We will surely be back here next time we are in this region of Turkey!

Excellent website in 3 languages tempts in the traveller. We arrived after dark and were.taken to our quiet, basic room. The fireplace would be great in the winter. The bathroom smelt like an old ladies bathroom, and not in a good way! The restaurant was.buzzing...with hundreds of insects but if you sat away.from the lights.it was ok. Food was alright.... More

Thanks David, we adressed the problem with the mosquitos, there are now information sheets in each room. This year was an exceptional year, it rained all summer long. Therefore our ecologic mosquito treatment didn't work as supposed to. We are aware about the condition of our hotel, we started already the renovation process, but it is a huge property. We... More

I stayed 3 days in this wonderful place surrounded by Olivetrees. I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the surroundings and the kindness of the owners. The restaurant was also very good, the breakfast fabulous and the service absolutely lovely. It is a place that I will not forget and hope to see again in the future. I would recommend... More

Basic, clean rooms with wonderful view. Super food with friendly, helpful staff. Great pity that the olive grove and outside areas are so neglected. Depressing. It could be so much more inviting. The food makes up for a lot.

I read about this place and thought wow, an olive farm, wouldn't that be fun. Then we arrived and found that everything was kind of run down, overgrown...you get the idea that this place was special in the 80's. When we got down to the lakeside, there's an entire kitchen area and dining area which is all closed up and... More

Although it is just off a main road, after visiting a few options on Lake Bafa we were absolutely charmed by this small chalet village on the side of the hill by the lake. The bungalows are homey and provided with AC/heating and a fridge. The view is simply amazing, day and night, and you can walk down by the... More

We arrived at 1am and the owner waited up for us. The rooms and overall hotel are tired and dated and in need of maintenance but the view and setting made up for this in our opinion. Looking over the beautiful lake bafa sitting on the terrace was a wonderful experience. The breakfast is one of the best we've ever... More

The hotel was probably a beautiful place some 30 years ago. Unfortunately not much maintenance has been done till today, so rooms are rather desolated, even with nice wooden ceiling and visible truss. The olive grove is still pleasant, but paths leading to the scattered buildings (4 rooms each) are not well kept and the lake beach is completely abandoned... More

Me and three friends happened upon the hotel on a day trip to Ephesus from Bodrum, we didn't stay at the hotel but stopped for a meal which was wonderful, with olives picked from the groves surrounding us. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the views of the olive groves and the Lake were spectacular as we watched... More
