I chose this hotel on behalf of my friends and I because the reviews were good.
The room and its beautiful surroundings were spotless. Cleaned every day by such friendly staff that I gave her £10 which is not much for us but means an awful lot to them. The food was great in comparison to lots of other hotels in Turkey with something there for everyone. The bar staff were all fabulous and enjoyed a bit of fun with us. We met some fantastic people who we hope to keep in touch with as well.
The only things I would like to point out are the steps that a few people pointed out in the reviews. There are quite a lot, especially if your room is at the top, but they were nice and wide and benches are provided for you to have five.
We did have one boy to help us with our cases when we arrived, but the hardest thing was carrying them back up the steps when you leave.
The biggee for me was that there were no shops around or no where to have a little walk around. The little harbour village of Yalikavak is only about 10 minutes on the dolmus but there were hardly any shops there either. We did a bus trip to Turgetreis and that was lovely with lots of little indoor market stalls. We also did a boat trip from Yalikavak which cost about £23.00 each. The boat only takes a maximum of 12 people and is fantastic value and you have a great lunch, then later lots of different fruit and later again drink and biscuits. You stop about 4 times either to swim and just take in the scenery.
A fabulous time was had by all and we would definitely recommend this hotel, especially if you don't do shops.
