This is a lovely little hotel with so much to recommend it, that it is difficult to know where to start. It feels almost as if you have your own villa - with staff! The position is stunning - the pool terrace and restaurant area overlook the Bay providing a great backdrop to breakfast or evening meals.
The service is outstanding. From the minute you arrive, you are made to feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff. The manager, Burhan, is very approachable and goes out of his way to ensure that you have a good stay, helping with arrangements or advice at any time. He personally welcomes guests on arrival and speaks with them everyday, and is genuinely interested in them. He finds time everyday to check that everything is going OK and even popped over to say hello when we met him out and about on his day off. The whole hotel is spotless and well maintained and any issues are dealt with promptly and efficiently - in our case, for example, fixing a broken air conditioning unit within 10 minutes, in the middle of the night.
The breakfasts are excellent with a wide selection: cereals, fruits, cheeses, toast, yoghurt, cold meats, juices etc etc.
There are over 100 restaurants in Kalkan which vary in price and it is possible to eat out very cheaply- or expensively. The restaurant at the Ekinhan is mid range but good value especially when you consider the quality and freshness of the food, the position and the service which are all very good.
The pool area is quiet and friendly and ideal for relaxing in the sun with occasional dips in the pool to cool off. Drinks and snacks can be ordered as needed from Valentino or Ali who are friendly and attentive. Perfect!
(On some days, there was music playing quietly in the background - a very eclectic mix of turkish, modern and oldies - but never intrusive and definitely not 'blaring'. On many days, there wasn't any music at all.)
The Ekinhan is on the edge of Kalkan which means it is a really peaceful place to stay and quiet at night. The town centre is a 20 minute walk or a few minutes by taxi - essential in the heat of the day.
We had a really lovely time at the Ekinhan and would recommend it to anyone looking for a calm, relaxing break.
