My wife and I recently went to Enchanted guest house with our two girls for a weekend. The place is rather old but the staff were friendly, rooms were clean and its situated close to the beach. Good experience overall.

Nice team, Good standard for an affordable good price. The view is great in front of the sea and you can enjoy it from the balcony. I was here for business and was able to use the Wi-Fi which is becoming a must have when you travel on business, they have it.

My husband and I stayed at the guesthouse for two nights, taken great care of by the very capable Leyla and Muhamed! Although the building can do with a little bit of maintenance work, especially the exterior, we found the style of the guesthouse to be very enchanting indeed... and the location was perfect. The staff is very friendly and... More

Having seen the beautiful photos on the internet we decided to make our booking. This only to find that the pictures are not only old, but also totally over exaggerated. The place is totally run down although kept reasonably clean. If it were not for Leyla and her staff, we were tempted to leave a day early even though we'd... More

Dear Guest Apologies for the discomfort you experienced with your stay and for the unfortunate break in of your vehicle. The safe parking refers to off street parking away from the vehicles riding up and down our very narrow road. If I may extend an invitation to visit us again in next year the same time for a weekend free... More

This guest house definitely needs some maintenance work done and we never got breakfast served. There were no staff members in sight, neither any food or coffee. I will not be recommending this guest house to anyone.
