Nicely appointed and spacious accommodation, great pool area and superb view from the terrace bar, the 3T Apart hotel is ideally situated if you want peace and quiet to relax and unwind. It is approximately 20 minute walk from the centre of Kalkan. Kalkan is a great holiday destination but not suitable for people with mobility problems, we didn’t find the distance to/from our accommodation too problematic and walked it each day but we made sure to avoid the hottest part of the day. Even in early September the temperature was a challenge. If you prefer not to walk there are plenty of taxis and a regular dolmus minibus service (white minibus with blue horizontal stripe).
Except for breakfast for hotel guests, the 3T complex doesn’t have in-house catering but staff will happily order tasty take-away food for you from a local café.
The only things I could fault in our self-catering apartment were the hard mattresses and pillows, also, there was no toaster and tea towels/dishcloths were not provided. On the plus side, the remote-controlled aircon was a God-send, the fridge freezer was spacious and ideal for freezing bottles of water, the shower worked really well and the bath towels were soft. Externally the pool was a good size and the sunbeds were comfy and plentiful (take your own beach towel) - the pool-side showers need attention.
On our final day we checked out at noon but weren't scheduled to be picked up from our apartment until 9.00pm. The manager very kindly gave us a lovely twin-bedded hotel suite in which to shower.
On departure, the manager and another member of staff shook our hands (twice) and waved us off. Lovely staff, super accommodation – we would happily recommend the 3T Apart Hotel and Kalkan as a holiday destination.
For restaurant recommendations I’d suggest The House Café opposite - Ali the Manager is very personable. Café Aqua and Café Vita are a short walk away as is Topaz (above La Sera) where we had our favourite meal.
Day trip tip – the Saklikent Gorge, plus amphitheatre, trout farm and Patara beach trip is well worth the £20 per person. Also, head to the Thursday market towards the end of the day - the stallholders are much less enthusiastic/overpowering than they are in the morning.
