This was our 3rd visit to Dalyan but our 1st stay at the Gizaldi.
We chose the Gizaldi because we were a family group of 7 including a four year old. We wanted a little extra space & thought that self-catering at an apartment hotel would work for us. (Not that we did much self-catering as in Dalyan you are spoilt for choice with wonderful places to eat & drink to suit everyone’s budget)
The Gizaldi certainly matched our needs perfectly.
Each room has a kitchen equipped with everything you need for making snacks. A two hot plate hob can be utilised to make toast! There is a good-sized living area with comfy seating, the bedroom has adequate storage & the beds were very comfortable. A shower & toilet completes the accommodation. Standard rooms also have the benefit of two spacious balconies. The attic rooms have a great view but only a tiny balcony.
As the photos show this is a very pretty, traditional hotel. Near to the centre of town (about 5 minutes walk) set in a very peaceful location. The pool & bar area are kept scrupulously clean. We ate a few times at the hotel & all the meals are reasonably priced & very tasty. The Barbeque Night was great fun & you should give this a try, there was even a spot of impromptu belly dancing.
It is the family/owners that make this hotel extra special. They are so welcoming & nothing is too much trouble, they really want you to enjoy your holiday!
We had 2 birthdays in our party during our stay & Alper & his lovely family helped to make them into special celebrations that we will remember forever. Our 4year old Grandson was treated like a king! Thank you so much for your kindness.
We met many other guests who were returning to stay at the Gizaldi for a second or third time, which I think shows how comfortable the family make you feel.
We will defiantly return also!
We all left feeling we had made new friends in Alper, Mamma & Dilara
A special thank you to Nuray, the housekeeper who works amazingly hard but is always smiling & has a great sense of humour! Good Morning!!
Twelve Island Tour, boat trips to the beach & covering our selves in Mud at the Baths were defiantly our other highlights. Dalyan we think is a little piece of paradise that offers something for every one.
