Amazing staff especially pumpkin you are gifted at making each holiday makers visit personal...the hotel is a small boutique hotel within a downhill walk into kalkan. The return by taxi is 11fl well worth it.......the rooms are tastefully designed clean and spacious the pool area is similar with amble sunbeds and cabana beds to rest in the shade. Many little...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Elixir hotel for the second time this August and had such a great time, the staff are lovely and very helpful they really couldn't do enough for us. The newly renovated rooms are well appointed, big and very comfortable. The food was delicious and as nice as any restaurant in the town but... More

The Elixir is a great boutique hotel which has recently undergone a make-over. Well situated just far enough out of the town yet close enough to walk and close to the Kalama beach club. Great staff with special reference to Pumpkin the bar man, nothing was too much trouble for him at any time of day. Rooms were well appointed... More

It was with heavy hearts that we said goodbye last Monday to Ali and his staff at the Elixir Hotel in Kalkan. Having been to the hotel previously, we knew exactly what to expect but since our last visit, Ali has invested a lot of money over the Winter and I have to say that the results are very impressive....

Had a great time here. Mostly english but all nice english, even all the kids were well behaved. Big question is would I go back again, yes definitely, staff great, great relaxed atmosphere and the bar manager was a credit to the hotel. As every holiday you can always find fault but these were minor and not worth making a... More

A real 'find' .... Kalkan is lovely and an ideal base for exploring. The elixir was ideal .... the pool was relaxing, the room (with balcony) newly renovated and all the staff we met were friendly and very helpful. Food good and bar and restaurant handy ... but be prepared for the occasional impromptu late night music. Would definitely stay... More

This was our first time to Kalkan and to the Elixir Hotel and we chose this hotel based mainly on the reviews we'd read here on TripAdvisor - and they're were right this is a great place to stay in a very nice town perfect for holidays. All the staff in the Elixir couldn't have been more helpful, the rooms... More

Hotel looks spectacular but I merely booked in for a hamam and so cannot comment on the hotel itself. Booked in advance and was still kept waiting at reception for my appointment. Eventually shown down into what I can only describe as the dumping ground for equipment. Was left with no explanation as to where I should go... so ventured... More

We have recently returned from the superb Elixir Hotel Kalkan, for the 2nd year running It has been everything we had ever wished for in a hotel, and this year it is even better having undergone a full refurbishment. Extended fantastic pool, loungers in the pool on decks, showers and Jacuzzi's on the balconies - why go anywhere else? Kalkan... More
