I have been wanting to get to this review. If you are in this region of Turkey you MUST stay here. It's a little hard to find but get a nav system and there's no problem. Run by a family who lease the hotel side but then built next to it a pool with restaurant where the cooking is just outstanding. There isn't anything this family won't do for you. Was traveling with friends by motorcycle/car (steep hill to hotel, let them park your car for you!) and this place was truly an oasis for two nights. I expressed an interest in fishing, one call was made to a neighboring fishing village and the next day I was fishing with a guy ("Sheriff" or Sharif, I could never get it straight!), his wife and their two young boys on a very small boat, as this guy was a real fisherman, not a charter boat. The advice the son of the owner gave us (he's the English speaker and has a degree in engineering) was invaluable and we also had some interesting cultural discussions. Running a hotel was this family's dream (they are from the city) and they just went out and did it and are very successful as far as I can tell. The room prices are very reasonable and I think once word gets out about how good this place is - it should be in Rick Steves - the prices will inevitably go up. Wi-Fi worked everywhere which is unusual in Turkish hotels and restaurants. Great pool which we couldn't use due to the season. But it looks fantastic. Climate control in the room, unlike many places we stayed in a month in Turkey, was fully functional. Filter coffee at breakfast was a treat - not Sanka which appears to be the norm elsewhere.
If you are going to Turkey, want to see the SW coast (it's only maybe 45 KM south of Marmaris), like great views, great service, great food and hotel owners who actually care about the quality of your stay, then you have got to stay here. Best hotel we stayed in in Turkey out of maybe a dozen hotels. As we pulled away the father threw water on the trunk of our car which is supposed to bring you back someday. Rick Steves, Lonely Planet, take note of this place.
