Unless you enjoy music played at full volume into the small hours of the morning, you would be advised to avoid this hotel. There are two bars, a sports bar and a pool bar. If you want to relax in the hammock after lunch you are likely to get blasted from your rest by the sudden ear-splitting noise of motor... More

The noise levels from the pool bar and the sports bar went into the early hours on a number of occasions.Most of the room had no escape from it, The young staff were on the most part most helpful and friendly though there seemed to be a lack of leadership and guidance and things got done more by luck than...

This was our second stay at the Elixir and we felt that it had lost a little of its gloss from 2012, It is difficult to pinpoint exactly why, the staff try hard as always and "Pumkin" is still the focus of fun around the pool and bar. Perhaps it was the absence of the manager from the previous year... More

Arrived last Monday to excellent reviews - all I can say is - where have previous visitors been staying? Standard rooms are less than basic, no bath, TV, fridge, or any stock in the bathroom. Superior rooms just about meet a basic standard. My room had not been cleaned at all when I arrived - bin overflowing, bathroom dirty and... More

We visited this hotel for 10 days in October 2013. It was our first visit to the hotel, booked through Anatolian Sky. The local tour rep, Ahmet was absolutely superb. We have been on more expensive holidays and never seen the rep..!! He was excellent at his job and always available. The hotel staff were friendly and yet respectful. The... More

We found it difficult to find available accommodation in Kalkan, I think this is because we were booking independently rather than through an agent. Of those available we went with the Elixir due to the reviews saying how friendly the hotel is, I can confirm they are right, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We also found the... More

We visited this hotel for 2 weeks in September 2013. It was our 3rd visit to the hotel, having been in 2012 and 2010. On all occasions we have booked through Anatolian Sky and found the service they provide to be excellent. The rep, Ahmet is excellent at his job and is always popping by the hotel to check all...

We visited Kalkan and the Elixir Hotel for the first time for a two week holiday. We did not know what to expect as a brochure does always tell the real story. The resort is lovely and the hotel is a short 10 min walk to the town. We could not have found the staff to be more helpful and... More

We visited kalkan for a two week holiday and although we stayed in a Villa we visited The Elixir almost every evening. There is a lovely friendly atmosphere and the staff make you feel very welcome. Even though we were not staying at The Elixir the staff did their upmost to make our stay enjoyable, in particular Ali. Complementary crips,... More

We have just returned from a week's holiday at this hotel and had a fantastic time. All of the staff are helpful and welcoming. Our room was comfortable although the balcony small but we did not tend to use this as every evening we would spend time with other guests at the hotel pool bar. This is run by "Pumpkin"... More
