We stayed at the Kaucuk Hotel during the first week in November, trying to catch the last rays of summer. We had the two-room, second floor suite with the balcony overlooking the pool. Our suite had no TV, which we thought was a good thing.
Like others have said, the Kaucuk Hotel is organized around a lovely courtyard of fruit trees, tables, and pool. While the pool was open, it was, by that time of the year, too cold for swimming. Nonetheless, a ten-minute walk will bring swimmers to a restaurant where one can buy access (for ten TL) to small but serviceable beach with clean water, warm enough for swimming (even in November).
Initially we had ambitions about seeing ruins and perhaps even golfing. But with our one-and-a-half year toddler in tow, we found ourselves more just exploring the old city and lounging either on our balcony or in the courtyard. The Kaucuk Hotel truly made our vacation.
The only threats to our tranquility were the pool and stairs, two standard fears of parents of a young, active toddler. Our son loved splashing his hands along the edge of the pool, several times trying hard to fall in . . . until he succeeded early one morning. Fortunately I was right there and a staffer was right behind me with a towel and words of concern as I fished him out.
More scary to us were the stairs to our room which were a bit steep. While nothing happened, I would advise parents of young children to to consider this in choosing the suite with the balcony.
