“Outstanding welcome and care”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I stayed at Dalyan Doga for 11 nights with my four children ranging from age 7 to 20. Dalyan had been recommended to me by a friend and I booked the Doga on the strength of its good Tripadvisor reviews. I was not disappointed. Ilksen and her family were outstanding hosts, helpful in every way even before we set off from England. The friendliness and care surpassed any other hotel I've stayed at. Meryam's cooking was fantastic, everything was clean and well looked after, price was good value. My 7 year old daughter was virtually adopted by the family (and by other families in nearby shops - you must visit Yasmin Authentic and the Altintava pancake house nearby), we were even invited to share lunch with the family. Dalyan itself was great, enough to do for at least the time we were there yet small enough to become familiar - a sort of 'managed' tourism. Great eateries (I recommend the Hidden Garden for an evening meal and Askin cafe for a snack and a drink), and Sinan's Place just across the road very convenient. Shop around for trips (nearby Aya Nicola gave us best deals). Most shops well priced though a couple tried to inflate prices, so I just went elsewhere. Shop prices pretty fixed, but bargain at Saturday market. Would I recommend Dalyan? Yes! Would I recommend Dalyan Doga? Without reservation! An exceptional place. teşekkür ederim, ilksen!

A little gem. We stayed in a triple room quite small but adequate. Great shower and air conditioning with small balcony and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was typical turkish ample with selection of teas and coffee by the pool. Home made food especially the lemonade and tiramisu was scrumptious. Family always on hand without being intrusive. Pool area beautiful with mountains in the background and close to the river and town.

Room Tip: Triple room on ground floor has a wet room and is very close to hotel entrance and might be suitable...

We have just had 2 weeks of pure bliss at the Doga otel ilksen and her lovely family are wonderful,so relaxing and and calm just what we needed after a busy working year, everything about this little gem was perfect, from the cleanliness of the rooms,to the every day running of the hotel, ilksen is a gentle, lovely lady that can't do enough for you but never intrusive,breakfast was super also snacks and evening meals made by ilksen Mum not forgetting the homemade lemonade.We have been coming back to Dalyan for a few years now and this hotel is right near our favourite bar and restaurant Sinan's Place Last drop (the friendliest bar in Dalyan,) also a few minuetes walk to the harbour so we could not ask for anything more. A couple of our friends came to join us and stayed over night they also loved it too. myself and my husband would like to say a big thank you to all concerned that made our holiday so 'Magical 'miss you all so much we will be back very soon,love and best wishes to all Cathryn and Chris Egan xx

Wonderful little hotel with a relaxed atmosphere and beautiful pool area. Fresh and tasty meals and homemade lemonade. You could not have a nicer family looking after you and the location was excellent. Am missing this hotel already. Thank you to you all for making this holiday so special and memorable. Your excellent reviews are well deserved

Just returned from 2 weeks stay at the Doga Otel. From the moment we arrived till the moment we left our needs were catered for. Our room was comfortable and the pool was fabulous. Not ice cold like some swimming pools. Breakfast was Al Fresco served and eaten by the side of the pool. The service was A1. The hotel is situated not more than 5 minutes walk to the centre of Dalyan and the river. Additional benefit, if you didn't want to eat and drink at the hotel then just across the way is the Sinia Restaurant. Fantastic food in both places.

We would like to highly recommend the Dalyan Doga hotel. We stayed for 8 nights. The manager, Ilksen, arranged airport transfers for us and stayed up until after 1am to welcome us in. The room was immaculately clean and very comfortable. The air conditioning worked perfectly. The hotel is family run and everyone is very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. A very tasty breakfast with lots of fresh fruit and salad, a boiled egg, a choice of cheeses and plenty of the delicious fresh bread. We liked the way the tea is made, well brewed yet light and fresh. We had two evening meals at the hotel during our stay and they were lovely and reasonably priced too. The location is very convenient and quiet. The locality is quiet and safe. Just a five minute walk to the centre of the town and the river. There is a lovely pool at the hotel. Very pleasant for a relaxing break after a tough day on the beach. The hotel is surrounded by a pretty garden. Gorgeous bougainvillea and angels trumpets mix with banana plants and vegetables. We received good advice about things to do from Ilksen. River trips, lake trips and regular boats to Turtle beach are all within 10 minutes walk. This was our first visit to Dalyan but we would love to return and would certainly chose the Dalyan Doga hotel.

we stayed 6 nights at Doga hotel which was quite nice with the quality and the happy all staff
garden is so lovely, breakfast is good (especially their home made jams by Meryem abla) and price of the foods/drinks are not expensive even some of them is cheaper than the outside.

rooms are very clean, there is a girl cleaning every day your room.

this was our secoond visit Dalyan but for me the best for resting. planning to come back on September

tks for everthing Ilksen, Meryem abla, Cennet abla.
