Losing your passport is every travellers nightmare. So after arriving at the picturesque Villa Tamara and feeling excited about a few days of lazing by the pool and sea, post a 5 hour drive from Bodrum, I was devasted upon being asked for passport at checkin, to realise it was at the previous hotel - in the safe. So technically not lost. Just a 10 hour return drive away. I was distraught and that's when Mesut the manager calmly stepped in, told me not to worry - he would fix. My husband dubious and a little anxious offered to drive back. Mesut would not hear of it. Relax, have a drink - I will fix. And he did. With full compliments also to our previous Hotel in Bodrum and Mesut - together they arranged a bus courier and our passports arrived next day. In the meantime we were able to enjoy panoramic views, an excellent steak dinner (and great value) and generous hospitality of the team, instead of the 10 hour drive. The hotel room was generous if a little quirky in bathroom design (ie no shower other than hand shower in the bath) and some parts of the common areas are shabby chic and are in need of updating - eg awnings ripped, which the owners said they were slowly doing. With 100 steps from our room to the restaurant area and then a further 100 steps to the sea, we certainly got our excercise whilst staying there. The ocean access is excellent and in full summer there is a bar operating down at the seaside lounges. We were sorry to leave Kas, its a delightful town not too overrun with Tourist buses yet. Make sure to visit the Kas market on Fridays and visit the pancake stand area for one of the most delicous and cheap lunches you can enjoy. Villa Tamara, Mesut and his team will help you enjoy every day in Kas and we are still greatful for his calm and quiet service.
