“Perfect in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The hotel delivers perfectly on its promise of Serenity, Design, Quality and Attitude. Set in the tranquil hills above Yalikavak town it is faultless in every way, the bistro serves delicious food, especially the home cooked breads, the hotel is beautiful and provides picturesque views down to the coast but best of all is the service, Ali, Youssef and especially Sahad couldn’t do enough for us. Thoroughly recommend this hotel to everyone and hope to book again soon.

I stayed at the hotel for one week from 24th September. It was my 3rd stay since 2008 & im busy looking at flights for next year already!
I absolutely love the place, its a wonderful relaxing oasis & perfect for a chilled out relaxing break. Rooms, food, cocktails & staff are all amazing. A special thank you to Birol for making amazing cosmoplitans & for supervising the staff, they all work to a very high standard indeed.
I really can not speak highly enough.

The hotel was recommended to us as a quiet, but centrally located boutique hotel with a great view. The view was stunning, the room stylish and very comfortable at the same time and although we ate out a lot due to excellent tips of the front desk, we also greatly enjoyed the menue of the bistro. Absolute highlight of our days was sipping the Cosmopolitan in the hotels outside bar while watching the spectacular sunset.
Thanks to the very friendly and descreet staff, we have seen and tasted the best the pensinsula can offer - no tour guide book required if you have Ali and Ahmet letting you in on their insider knowledge of the best restaurants, clubs and beaches!
Very recommendable indeed!

The four reasons behind the title name are as follows: serenity, design, quality, attitude.

Well, the place definitely was serene. I loved the pool area which had a little bit for everyone (sun, shade, loungers, sofas...). The pool is a centrepiece to the public / common (for lack of better word) area with sun loungers, bistro and bar all located around it. True, some days there were screaming kids and the area was pretty crowded over the weekend, but overall, this really was an excellent relaxation area. Since it is set in a hill, the views over the village towards the sea were quite stunning.

Design. Yes, there was plenty of design, perhaps too much of it. The room (Functional) particularly felt really quite over designed... the room was on the small side yet there was a large but sadly utterly useless wardrobe, the lamps were awkward and took most of the bedside table space, there was a profound lack of surface on which to place things... Having said that, the overall look of the place was fine and fitted perfectly. And the balcony was stunning!

Quality. All the staff around the pool and in the bistro were very friendly, attentive and the overall feel of the service was excellent... even though the promised drink sometimes never arrived (waitress couldn't understand but was too shy to admit it!) but they really did try. Quality of food was ok although we had better down by the beach in Magi Beach. The pool was great, sun loungers super comfy etc.

The one reason missing though was definitely attitude on the managerial level. The first night of our stay, I asked the reception to book a restaurant (recommended by a local) for us. They seemed really disapproving of our choice. They didn't explain much about their reasons but appeared really offended when I insisted in this restaurant (which turned out to be great if a little overpriced). And it just went downhill from there... they were very economical on information and sometimes even rude. By the end of the week, I started feeling really uncomfortable whenever I spotted the manager around. Attitude was definitely present but not the good kind.

I still rate Four Reasons as very good and if the attitude improved, I would definitely recommend to friends!

We measure our success by many criteria. "Quality of service and personal attention" is the utmost important and critical element that we measure. We take special pride in our efforts of excelling in this area. However, unfortunately, it is apparent that we have failed to satisfy our guest. It is duly and respectfully noted. We thank our guest for the constructive criticism. We will continue in our efforts of providing the highest possible service quality.

If you need to relax! this is the place to go, The hotel is immaculate with fantastic views and the staff are excellent.
Yalikavak is a small picturesque fishing village with a fantastic market and appears to be attracting some wealthy visitors which is a endorsement for the area.

4Reasons is a fabulous hotel, its a little oasis, the setting is beautiful and the pool and the view over the town and out to see are stunning.

The staff at the hotel are great, the rooms are really top quality and it all adds up to deliver a really relaxing experience.

We ate in the hotel a few times and the food is excellent quality and the setting by the pool in candlelight is lovely.

All in all a great experience.

Room Tip: We stay in the love suite which was fabulous!

Just returned from my second trip to 4reasons. The hotel is as beautiful as ever.
Well kept gardens, efficient, friendly staff that go the extra mile..sorry Birol and the boys we kept you up a few nights..the cocktails are sooooo good, they not to be missed.
I had a standard room which was anything but standard, big and spacious with everything you need.
My favourite time of day was around 6pm, pre dinner drinks watching the sun go down over the seaview panorama. Dinner by candlelight, with some great friends.
Fantastic holiday I would gladly recommend to my friends and hope to return in the future.
