Ipek Fine and her fantastic B&B made our trip to Alacati simply amazing. First, the hotel is really nicely designed. Everything is brand new and well appointed. The pool and outdoor seating areas are lovely with crisp whites and blues that are more "Conde Nast" than the rates would suggest. The bathrooms are lux with fine products and linens. The beds are comfy and the rooms have plenty of closet space and a desk as well as a cute window seat. We walked by several other butik (boutique) hotels during our stay in town and so many of them seemed more like staying at grandmas - but not Alura. This place is mod and clean with the best vibes. Ipek and her dad were as warm as old friends. They went out of their way to make sure that we were set up with windsurfing, transportation, restaurant recommendations, etc. It was more like staying at a friend's house, except that Ipek has better taste in music. We really enjoyed getting to know them a bit and were genuinely sad to leave. The location is excellent. Right near the cute main pedestrian area, but not in the thick of it. The breakfast is wonderful.
We came during the off season, but the weather was nice and the windsurfing great fun. I can't imagine how busy this place must get in the height of summer. We'll take this time of year over the crowds any day!
