Our first visit to turkey and we were lucky enough to stay at this small hotel. Our suite was mid price range and was very spacious and extremely comfortable.But the best part of our suite was the outside space.Outside our room was a balcony where we were served breakfast every morning at our convenience.A few steps up from our balcony was our own pool and sun loungers and settee and chairs in the shade.It was difficult to leave these surroundings and we relaxed and were very private.The private cabana was a special treat when the day became hot we retreated to the cabana overlooking the sea where there was a welcome breeze.The cabana had its own double bed mini bar 2 sun loungers and a buzzer to call for meals or drinks from the beach side restaurant.The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful when it came to booking taxis and restaurant tables. the beachside Yali Restaurant was fine for midday snacks and drinks.The menu was not extensive but the hotel is only 10 /15min walk from Kalkan where there are some superb restaurants.Try Aubergine,Trio , Gourmet and Mussaka.But to be honest the standard of food in most places is very good and we ate well.Kalkan is a lively place in the evenings but in a friendly welcoming way.It is for tourists mainly.We paid a visit to Kas which is more of a Turkish town with tourists and is just as good as Kalkan.We believe that the hotel is planning a bar for guests for next season Nd this will be a good addition as fellow guests will be able to share drinks together.
The next time we need some sunshine a private pool and relaxation we will return to the Likya Gardens and thoroughly recommend it.
