We love ending our trips to Turkey with a visit to Villa Mahal- such a treat !! This was our 3rd visit and it seems to get better with each stay. The breakfast was magnificent in its quality and choices of cheeses, jams, fruits, breads, etc. The lunch menu has also expanded and it ,too, was delicious and varied. "Our... More

We have just returned from our first visit to Turkey and we feel fortunate to have chosen the Hotel Villa Mahal in Kalkan. We booked through Exclusive Escapes (EE) and were impressed by how smoothly our trip went from start to finish. Joan, our EE representative, was very attentive and knowledgeable. Our room (204) was west facing, not overlooked, and... More

Ipek who owns this hotel and lives on site has created something very special, at a price to match. The whole place faces west into the bay so the views from every room are stunning. It is built on a steep slope, as many of the coastal hotels are, so the steps are a challenge, especially when its 38c and... More

This hotel has a great setting and a lovely floating platform. It is on the Kisla side of the bay and they provide a free boat service to and from town to the beach club. If I was staying at the hotel I would find this annoying as the whole tranquility of the place disappears when the public school kids... More

Shame to see such an iconic hotel and beach club lose its appeal. We've been using Exclusive Escapes as regular guests for this hotel and adjacent villas for the last 8 years. In our mind, EE remains fantastic, the local rep Joan is a treasure, the location extraordinary and the villas stunning. However the hotel food quality is now below... More

This hotel is presented on the Exclusive Escapes web site in a seriously upmarket style and is priced accordingly. In our view it is totally over-rated. Yes, the location on the hillside is amazing, the pool is great, and first appearances are promising. The hotel is proud of its 181 steps, the staff even wear t-shirts proclaiming this. But unless...

I thought long and hard about this review. This is a true 3.5* If I'd dropped on the positive side nobody would take note of the comments. So let's look at the positives 1. Fabulous views of the bay of Kalkan , probably the best I've had on holiday 2. We had the pool room, private pool and sun rest... More

The most beautiful sea side restaurant I have ever visited. The food was genuinely good. A restaurant anywhere else on the mediterranean with a view like that would charge 3 times the price. Very chilled, not pretentious and amazing cocktails !

If you are in the UK, you have to book this property through Exclusive Escapes, who charge a premium for their marketing - even if you are travelling independently as we were. Our comments are in relation to how much we had to pay. Having said that, it was the Exclsuive Escapes representative who made this hotel for us; without... More

This place is a real find, pure luxury with no pretentiousness. It's perfectly situated on the hilltops of Kalkan with way access To the sea and a lovely infinity pool.
