The pool is the star of this hotel. A really good sized pool with views over Kalamar Bay is wonderful. Breakfast is good, the team is friendly and the rooms are a good size... This is our second time here and, again, an enjoyable stay. Just ignore the over-stated 'no food in the rooms' signs.

I've never been to the same holiday resort twice never mind the hotel - my partner and I have been all over the world but this place, although basic and could profit from a revamp of the bar area and sun loungers, just ticks the boxes. The staff are absolutely amazing and accommodating. This is the first review I've ever... More

I booked a suite for myself and two boys, it was very well equipped and huge. The staff here are lovely, the pool is large and very well kept with plenty of sunbeds and beautiful views. A free shuttle takes you into Kalkan and they were very flexible where they dropped us, a taxi fair was also very inexpensive if... More

Judging from the number of guests who like us return time after time this hotel has lots going for it. It is a little dated but the rooms are fine, the pool and the views over Kalamar Bay fantastic. There has been some staff changes since our last visit but nothing that affected us or the other guests, as usual... More

The star system in Turkey is not quite equivalent to British and I would say this is 3 rather than the 4 it is advertised at. However, despite being a little old fashioned it is clean and quiet with fantastic views of Kalamar Bay. A good up/downhill walk into Kalkan but that suited me as it was close enough to... More

I've just returned from the Happy Hotel. Other reviewers have said hotel was dated I didn't find that at all. My room 315 was lovely had modern bathroom. Lovely big balcony that had a sea and mountain view. The bedroom was large with large wardrobe with loads of hangers. Bed was quite low but still very comfortable. Room was cleaned... More

Our second visit to the happy and if anything it was better than the first, this is a quiet comfortable hotel with fantastic views over kalamar bay, the best thing about the hotel though is the wonderful staff who go out of their way to make your visit enjoyable. We will be returning for our third visit.

This year was our 4th visit to The Happy Hotel Kalkan. We love the resort and we love this hotel. The rooms are very clean and spacious and the view from the pool area across Kalamar Bay is breathtaking. The pool is what we call a " proper " swimming pool no slides no quirky features just a large pool... More

This hotel was one of the best we've stayed in, in Turkey. The staff were very friendly. Our room was a good size, with a large balcony, the view from our balcony was sea views, absolutely fantastic. Guests do tend to be more upmarket and older (no lager louts, and not over run with kids)Although the hotel run a courtesy... More
