I stayed at Club Alla Turca from 7 October - 21 October 2008. I travelled by myself and had a room looking out to the pomegrante field round the back of the hotel and the mountains that formed the backdrop of much of dalyan which was a gorgeous view of a very lush country.
My room was tastefully decorated in magnolia/white with what seemed to be updated headboard . The room and bathroom were cleaned to a very high standard everyday. I've travelled quite a bit now and i have to say that Alla Turca was the first hotel bathroom where i would have confidently showered without my flip flops. Although I didn't. Small steps and everything... :0)
What i saw of the hotel itself was very nice (i don't spend much time in the hotels when i travel), the garden being particularly worthy of note. Again, the hotel is surounded by vegetation (this actually defines dalyan), encassed by a mountaineous terrain. The garden has sun beds and matresses arranged on a path of wooden cladding and sheltered by a canopy of sorts which was very nice.
The hotel has a computer in a small area next to the dining room where you can access the internet for free.
On my first night I was given a voucher which gifted me to a free meal for the evening which was very nice. On my last night I paid to eat in the hotel and the food was excellent. Turkish food is great for veggies as you can just eat the mezze dishes as i did and i believe i could have been satisfied with this for the whole of my stay (admittedly my eating habits are quite repetitive).
Disappointing however was the service. I went in October and the nights were very cold. My air conditioning wasn't working properly and just gushed out cold air which gave me a cold. I had to ask no less than 5 times on 5 seperate occassions for them to fix this by which time i was already bunged up. When they did fix it it was because i insisted on someone following me to my room to look at the air con right away. The blanket i requested came after they fixed the air con.
The selection of fruit at breakfast was extremely poor which was inexcusable seeing as turkey seems to grow everything other than money. On fridays i noticed a truck in town selling local hotels and restuarants melons which never made an appearance in the hotel breakfast buffet. I spoke to the hotel about the poor fruit output and they received this like i was wasting their time.
I watched TV when i returned to the hotel at night when i finished my books and many of the english speaking channels seemed to be unavailable after a few days. Again, the hotel were useless and seemingly proud of it.
The breakfast selection besides the fruit was generally quite limited compared to other places i've stayed in with them for example alternating between the provisions, for example, of boiled eggs or scrambled eggs or fried- never all at the same time.
The town is a short 10-15 mins walk away and cluttered with shops selling the typical leather goods, turkish delight, spices etc and there are restaurants galore but that doesn't mean there is much in the way of range of dishes as they all have the same menu give or take a few appetisers.
Be aware of the bad practices of the local post office where you'll change your money (and shops in general) and they do not give you your Kurus change believing it their entitlement. I found the turks to be very greedy and aggressive when it came to money.
Overall, if you are going to go to Dalayan, i would recommend this hotel primarily because it is clean and aesthestically pleasant but i wouldn't return to Dalayan.
