This is a place to just relax .for that it is perfect .. The location is stunning . On the edge of a canyon that reaches down to the sea at Kumlumbuk bay .
We had a cottage suite at the very top and the view was truly breathtaking . The price to pay was the 200 steps to get to it . Please bear in mind that this property is mist vertical . Having said that 2 60ish averagely unfit people managed the climb 2 or 3 times every day and are now much fitter from the effort .
Previous reviews have commented on the lack of choice in the food . The quality is very good and it's fresh having come straight from their farm . It could be varied more day to day but the buffet and barbecue night s are very good with loads of mezes to choose from. There could be more at breakfast and I echo the surprise that the orange juice comes from a carton . These are minor niggles though .
The point of the Dionysos is the overall peaceful ambience . This
And it's relative isolation engender a very social atmosphere . People talk to each other . Share experiences like the boat trips . Share tables at dinner chat and engage in good conversation and form ephemeral friendships . Okay not mates for life but certainly for the week .
The beach club is still being completed and was only open during the day but it will enhance the experience .
The nearest town Turunc has little to offer . The restaurants are mostly not great . There are possibly 2 that are up to scratch . The shops sell mostly low grade tourist tat . This is not Kalkan or Kas .
As a result you will spend most of your time at the Dionysos so I recommend the pre bought meal deal. It will save alot . The hotel knows how to charge too so expect to pay for the extras .
Expect also to meet nice people friendly staff and welcoming owners . Enjoy one of the best pools anywhere .
Don't expect riff raff the pricing policy certainly should put them off !
We had a lovely week and thanks to all staff and other guests who made it so .
