The location of this boutique hotel with small bungalows nestled in beautiful gardens is simply stunning. It is individual, simple, very chic and hip. Apart from the beauty of the hotel, the beach club with pontoons reaching into the water is great for lazy days by the sea. The bar make it very trendy and the lounge music is very cool.
We had a simply furnished room with beautiful views over the gardens and sea. Basic, but sufficient.
The hotel is staffed by a lot of young students who are not used to the questions and demands of the guests. Having said that, all of them were very friendly, most spoke English and tried to give advice to the best of their knowledge.
If you like to party, Türkbükü is the perfect place, as clubs and bars along the waterfront cater for all night action. Nights at Macakizi were loud, particularly on Friday and Saturday, when the neighbouring clubs turned their music up, well into the early morning. Ear plugs and eye masks were a must to be able to sleep (our room didn't have black out curtains).
The breakfast buffet was generous, very nice and served until 11.30am. Unfortunately, dinner was very very pricey (double the cost of the best restaurants in Istanbul), good, but not outstanding. We would recommend lunch only. Explore other options around the bay.
Overall, we liked our stay, but have some reservations as per above. A paradise with imperfections.
