“Very Expensive and Only Average Food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We had a free meal here courtesy of Exclusive Escapes which was ok given its a limited menu offered. We made the mistake of not checking the prices of the main menu before booking to come back at our own expense, big mistake. A kebab cost 60tl which is about £25 at current rates. As someone else has commented the meze starter is woefully poor and costs 22tl.
The position by the water is fabulous and the view is amazing but be prepared to pay over the odds to enjoy them. You can do so much better in town without having to travel out here.

“Don't go here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

My boyfriend and I stayed in some apartments just above the hotel. We visited the beach club on our first day To be greeted by the rudest staff!! We were told to move from the sunbeds we sat on, then not one staff member came and asked us if we wanted a drink. Once buying some drinks it was over priced and again the staff were so rude. No please thankyou or excuse me, I think there exact words were 'what do you want' with a frown upon their face!! We visited again simply to get an ice cream, over priced and were greeted with 'tab number?' when we explained we just wanted to get an ice cream the guy frowned and unhappily charged us over the odds for it!
Nice views but staff are horrible, rude, unfriendly, unhelpful and everything is overpriced! Will never go here again!!

“mahal beach club”

lovely beach club with comfortable sun loungers set on varying ledges so a little privacy available. Excellent food and drink available and fab views and lovely little boat to take you there from Kalkan harbour-perfect day.

“restaurant meal at Villa Mahal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2011

Can only speak as you find,and we had a horrid experience. We ate twice including with our sons. The second time the woman owner/manager was screeching at the two nice waiters as they were trying to seat us outside on a cool,windy evening after several days of rain. .A poor start.!!Then when my husband's meal arrived the plate was stone cold and the chips were totally cold. I had to eat my fish alone until a new meal arrived. She was all smiles and when we complained that this should not have happened as she delivered the new meal, she was very angry and said the food had not been cold. We were flabbergasted and amazed that she would disagree when we were looking forward to a lovely evening. No complimentary coffe and she was nowhere to be seen when we left.Never again!!. We had such amazing food and service everywhere else and fabulous food on holiday.She thinks she has the finest restaurant in that area but although the setting is worth paying for the food is not.The waiter was sweet and embarrassed.
