“A little piece of Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Just returned from an amazing 7 night break at The Escape. It is a fabulous place to chill out and I am reluctant to share how good it is in case too many people find it! We stayed in Turquoise room and it really was lovely as are all the rooms but I definitely enjoyed the extra space the superior rooms offered. Everything about this hotel is just as all reviews have said so there is very little I can add other than to thank Chris and Susan for a lovely week. We will return.

Room Tip: Worth upgrading to the superior rooms as they are lovely and spacious.

We arrived here late from Dalaman airport (around a 25 minute drive) having had to deal with lost luggage and arrived a little stressed to say the least. Thank god for Susan and Chris who then welcomed us into their wonderful retreat. Chris produced a welcome glass of beer and glass of wine, Susan managed to find a complete set of kit for my wife, thus enabling her to have an early morning swim in the glorious pool. We stayed in the turquoise room which was positioned just by the pool terrace. Extremely comfortable bed with good pillows and luxury linen. Extra bonus was being able to make fresh coffee and tea (fresh milk provided) in the room. Good bathroom. Breakfast was a treat: all freshly prepared with fruit, eggs, muesli, orange juice and coffee etc. Chris comes into his own here looking after all your needs with anything you need to know about the area and Susan then excels with her cuisine and warmth. Well worth having dinner as well, not only is the food excellent, but also the setting must be recommended. In fact the stay was so good that we booked an extra night here on our return, where yet again all was perfect and just confirmed my thoughts that they have got this place just right!!! A good pair of pillows and excellent coffee are bliss after spending a couple of weeks travelling around the area. Location is handy for the airport and Gocek, so useful for stopover, but you will want to stay longer. I am sure we will return as we love this part of the world.

Room Tip: I saw all the rooms and all have their merits.

….of sheer luxury"....and that is exactly what The Escape delivers. A stunning and unique Villa, in a beautiful and tranquil location. A stone’s throw from Gocek Marina and only 25 minutes drive from Dalaman airport. Exceptionally welcoming, Chris and Susan leave you wanting for nothing, always attentive; delivering exceptional food, service and company. We felt utterly spoilt with the perfection of the room and the completely peaceful, relaxing atmosphere they have created. A paradise that we both look forward to returning to.

What an excellent 'escape' it is! I needed relaxation and a place to wind down and The Escape, and Chris and Susan, offered exactly that - it was perfect. A 'gem' of a location - discrete but accessible - nestled in the hills within a traditional Turkish village but close enough to the marina town of Gocek to be able to savour its delights. The sunshine was warming, the pool was refreshing, the food was delicious, the rooms were private, the beds comfortable and the service was exceptional, right from the outset through to having to say goodbye. Lots of wonderful memories of a fantastic holiday in an amazing place.

"It is with deepest pride, and greatest pleasure that Susan and Chris welcome you to "The Escape'. They will invite you to relax, and will pull you up a chair. As Susan's dining room proudly presents - your dinner!
Be their guest!
Be their guest!
Put their service to the test
Tie your napkin 'round your neck, cherie
And they will provide the rest......"

What an amazing location! The moment you arrived, you were greeted by name, and warmly welcomed to ‘The Escape’, your bags were whisked away, you are shown to your room, and next thing you know you are sitting on the balcony with a beer in ones hand, looking at the most breath taking view in the world. This was my home away from home, my retreat from the world. 10/10, best place in Dalaman / Gocek!

Susan & Chris you are fantastic wonderful people, with such big hearts, and run / own such a beautiful haven.

Wonderful people providing an wonderful experience!! We just had one night stay but one of the best memories we will carry for long time. Tastefully done interiors including excellent customer care (homely touch). Very very good break-fast and a very relaxed atmosphere.

Stunning, absolutely stunning. This adult only hotel is the perfect holiday for a completely relaxing holiday. The owners Chris and Susan are the most friendly, helpful people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. This hotel truly has the WOW factor it is spotlessly clean, the attention to detail is supreme and the building is stunning. Daily swimming in the pool with the beautiful Gocek mountains all around.

I have never been so relaxed on holiday. Definitely will return.
