We have just returned from our first ever visit to Turkey. The Escape is situated a short drive from Gocek and Dalaman Airport. Our transfer was arranged by Susan, we were collected from the airport and arrived to a very warm welcome and lovely meal. The fish was fantastic! Our room was spacious and very comfortable over looking the beautiful... More

My wife and I have Just returned from a fabulous week at the Escape. Prior to booking I had read the reviews and have to confess to an element of cynicism with all submitters rating the Escape as excellent. I am delighted to say that from our experience all the comments are fully justified and accurately reflect the unique experience... More

Susan and Chris Salmon have created a little gem of a hotel. It is very secluded, tucked away up a hill about 10 minutes from Gocek and 30 minutes or so from Dalaman Airport. It is a British family hotel transported to Turkey. What you get is a caring, very high quality hotel run to UK standards in a Mediterranean... More

Susan and Chris have created a treasure, a very special place to holiday in Turkey with the very highest standards through out. We enjoyed two stays at the beginning and end of our trip to Turkey and Greece. Susan also arranged our car and it was great to be able to contact her when there were small issue's with the... More

Seven of us stayed for two nights at the end of a sailing holiday. We all agreed that The Escape is a great find. It is exactly as the name suggests, away from all the hurly-burly of a tourist resort. None of the previous reviews do justice to the standards and the enjoyment of a stay at The Escape. Chris...

A charming small hotel of 9 bedrooms in the hills down a real country road. You round the last corner to find this lovely place. What a warm welcome we received on arrival! An incredible level of hospitality and attention was lavished on us throughout our stay; nothing was too much trouble. Lovely food, a great environment and you could... More

This is simply the best small hotel we have ever found anywhere in the world! Five of us had a weeks sailing holiday based in Gocek and although we had booked earlier in the year, we couldn't let our hosts know what time we would arrive because of flaky internet connection at the marina. In the event we pitched up... More

This is a real boutique hotel. The attention to detail is amazing. The bedrooms are extremely tasteful & each is different. Susan's food was delicious & the wines excellent. No wonder it has an excellent rating. Thoroughly deserved! Thoroughly recommended.

Escape Review Just returned from my second visit to The Escape and it was just as fantastic as the first time. I stayed in the Suite with my partner for a week in July and really enjoyed the sheer beauty of the surroundings and the quiet relaxing days spent indulgently by the infinity pool. The days were lazy and whilst... More

We arrived as a party of six and a week later left our new friends Susan and Chris to carry on running The Escape! We cannot recommend it any more than to say that we had the most wonderful time. Chris kept us entertained throughout our stay while still managing to keep us supplied with food and drinks. Susan's cooking... More
