“Unique retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We loved our stay with this genuine and delightful family.
The rooms which are unique combined well with the opportunity to share food lovingly prepared and cooked especially for us.Both breakfast and dinner were a pure delight.
This is an experience rare to find and fitted well into our months itinerary exploring Turkey
Do not miss the chance to ask for a private viewing of the Gallery to appreciate how unique this special retreat is.

We picked this hotel because of the many good reviews and they are all true. This is a place for people who love a relaxed and quit holiday. We spent many days just being lazy at the giant pool, while hearing the sounds of the crickets, feeling a cool breeze and enjoying the mountain and sea view.
The host Yanki does everything to make you feel at home, 24/7. His mother keeps the gardens in good order, so they look lovely with many flowers and the father starts in the late afternoon with preparations for the dinner, which was in every case outstanding! I have been to Turkey many times, and this food can match even the finest restaurants in Istanbul. Also, the Turkish wines are fabulous.
The rooms all have a sea view and are big, comfy and well equipped with TV, internet and mini-bar.
The prices are a bit steep, both for staying, dinner and drinks. It's easily Western prices. But with the excellent service and the fact that anywhere in the surrounding area the prices are much higher, we found it reasonable. Highly recommended for a relaxed and quiet holiday!

***This hotel is hard to find so go to their website and call or email them for directions.
Once you are there you will not want to leave. This place is Eden. The staff will lavish you with all the attention you want while still respecting your privacy. Yanki gave us a history lesson of Turkey from 1924 until the present. I was reading a book re: Turkish history while we were there and I could have saved myself the trouble as he covered everything thoroughly. Do NOT be deterred by the current political unrest in Turkey. If you stay away from the actual protest areas you will be safe and you would really regret missing a trip to the friendliest nation on earth.
EAT DINNER at Antik Zeytin. This was far and away the best food we had on our 3 week journey through the country.

Thank you for the review and compliments.

These were really strange times that maybe the second "Prague Spring" was actually happening in Taksim Square / İstanbul. The political situation affected the whole tourism in Turkey including the anticipatied Syrian-Turkish war (i strongly think that it won't be happening in near future).

Well, politics again (= . Hope to see you in a calmer political weather but also there is a lot to discuss about the situation.

Warm regards

The unique property of Antik Zeytin Hotel exudes a five star experience in a retreat setting. The grounds are uniquely landscaped and the pool is surreal, especially at night. The complex is designed more for adults seeking a comfortable, quiet environment in a picturesque setting.
Yanki, the owners' son, was a perfect host and we enjoyed our multi-leveled conversation with him...while patting the cats. This is quiet retreat, far away from the noise of the town, yet conveniently located within minutes of Bodrum and the airport in Milas.

Room Tip: The rooms are wonderfully designed with stone work interiors and wonderful showers. The two rooms o...

Dear Sonia,

Thank you for choosing us to stay. The compliments are very nice also It is very nice to meet pure-minded Canadians in our hotel. I know it is a long distance but if you come to Turkey again, just give me a call, perhaps we may do a wine-tasting again, who knows?

Warm regards

We've spend the first two weeks of September 2012 at Zeytin, and it was truly superb! The hospitality and kindness of Ümit, Yanki and their crew is genuine and exceptional and makes one feel at home immediately. Also, seek no further for good food as Ümit and Ramazan make a delicacy out of any eatable product. Finally, a trip with Ümit's beautiful wooden yacht made our stay unforgetable.
We look forward staying at Zeytin soon again!

We enjoyed ten perfect days at this very special place. We felt treated as honored family members rather than just hotel guests. The cats and the dog made us feel like home. We indulged in the traditional turkish food which was prepared by master chef and hotel owner Umit himself who is a true artist! But not only in the kitchen! The beautiful hotel was designed by him, too. If you feel for a good glas of wine, be sure to ask Yanki and follow his recommendations. This is the place for people who are interested in culture, art and tranquility.
