Catching a free water taxi from the Kalkan harbour to Hotel Villa Mahal Beach Club was an absolute delight aboard a comfortable shaded power boat. It's a mere 10 minute journey across the bay and a chance to sight sea turtles catching their breath in the turquoise waters. Arriving at the Mahal Beach Club, we were not disappointed, it's luxurious... More

Just back from our 2nd honeymoon. I cannot recommend Hotel Villa Mahal enough. I have never seen a more romantic, calming and stylish place like it. We didn't want to leave - we will definitely return

Not everyone staying at the hotel may be aware but the hotel does a fantastic fish special. We have never seen anything like it. But white grouper slow steamed with vegetables so you have soup starter from juices and then fish and vegetables.... delicious.

The hotel owner and staff run a magnificent hotel. The accommodation is extremely well set out in a hillside complex, comfortable, clean and delightfully quiet and private. The staff are universally polite, and helpful and the hotel boat is ready to take you to the village of Kalkan - don't try walking, it's not worth it!! Don't believe the "only... More

A fantastic place to stay - you can just dream your days away in this wonderful location. Excellent food and especially the breakfast with masses of fresh produce. Try the Cliff House - it is just perfect. The town of Kalkan is just a short boat taxi away where there are some really good places to eat.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the apartments above the hotel villa mahal and used the facilities several times. The location is perfect and scenery breathtaking when using the infinity pool. We were there in low season so found it to be very peaceful. Food and cocktails were good and service average - probably better if a guest.

Once loved this hotel, and surely it still is gorgeous. Stayed for a night, (incognito) last year, this, just to see. Kalkan was once a small village. It grew, with little care to tie it into surroundings as lets say, Kas. But Turkey is so full of little villages by the sea, you can find that feeling again. It was... More
