Based on my brilliant stay recently, I cannot recommend The Arikanda River Garden Hotel highly enough. Situated 2 hours from Antalya, Adrasan provides its guests with remoteness, tranquility while a short drive from plenty of activities and excursions.
The hotel itself was fantastic. The bedroom was clean, spacious and had a kind size bed. My boyfriend and I enjoyed playing cards with an evening drink on our little balcony too. While the room fulfilled our expectations, it was the service, atmosphere and the food which sets Arikanda apart from any other hotel that I have ever visited by far. Our flight arrived late (and additionally was delayed) meaning we did not arrive at the hotel until 12.30 am. Tired and also hungry, the team unexpectedly laid on a delicious mezze supper and introduced us adequately to what the surrounding area has to offer. We were touched at their kindness and warm welcome, which was continued throughout the week. Getting to know the family and having some banter with them made us instantly feel at home and relaxed, unlike any other hotel experience i've had.
I'm not the sort of tourist to stay in my hotel all week to eat, but Fell's food is absolutely delicious and very reasonably priced! We enjoyed Mousakka, fresh calamari, the slow roast lamb and best of all the beef stroganoff. We ventured one night to the second best rated restaurant in Adrasan (the first being Fell's food from Arikanda) and having a dissatisfactory meal we decided to only eat with Fell- mainly for the food and partly for the company of the family, cats and the famous ducks!
The family took us on various trips to the ancient ruins, boat trip (definitely worth doing), fire mountain, and cable car (worth a miss) and were able to add all costs to our final bill which was useful and incredibly reasonably priced!
Overall I cannot stress how much I enjoyed my holiday to Adrasan which was mainly due to our fantastic stay at Arikanda. We will almost certainly be returning and suggest you definitely consider it for a brilliant break by the sea!
