Since last year the hotel has had many alterations and has been decorated to a very high standard. All the staff working at the hotel are friendly and very helpful and can't do enough for you. The food is very good... More

With this being our first visit to Kalkan, and indeed Turkey, my wife and I were keen to stay at a lovely hotel, with a friendly but intimate environment, where we felt most welcome and at home. This was after all our 'Honeymoon' and we really wanted to stay somewhere we felt was luxurious, but not too over the top.... More

The integrity of the owner rubs off on all his staff giving the hotel's guests a memorable holiday experience.There is lively conversation in the bar late evenings but not once was my sleep disturbed.The whole ethos of the place is to enjoy yourself, have fun and make friends.

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
