Kalkan is a very pretty location with cobbled streets and lots of restaurants and shops. My husband and I stayed at the Samira apartments recently. The apartments are located in a hilly area and would not be suitable for persons with walking difficulties unless just staying in the apartments and not going into the Kalkan resort area. The Samira Deluxe hotel is situated further up the hill and you have to cross a main road to get to the main resort area. The apartments have a separate bathroom with shower, separate bedroom and kitchenette with table and chairs and sofas and a balcony and air conditioning. When staying at the apartments on a self catering basis you can purchase drinks etc from supermarkets and store them in your room, if you stay on a bed and breakfast basis this is not allowed. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful and we had a real laugh with them. Many of the guests at the apartments were repeat guests and had been there many times although this was our first time at the apartments.
We were informed that the prices in Kalkan are slightly more expensive than in the rest of Turkey but we did not find them expensive. Beer in the resort and at the apartments was 5TL (approx £2) and wine 7-8TL. Meals varied, we stayed at the apartments by the pool at lunchtimes and there is a good selection of snacks and meals and prices are very reasonable and with a drink we never spent more than £20 for the 2 of us. Meals in the report varied and could be as cheap as £20 for 2 with a drink for a basic meal with starter. The prices get more expensive the nearer you get to the harbour and the most expensive meal we had was £60 for the 2 of us but this was with starters and steaks for main courses and a drink.
We would definitely go back as the resort itself is very attractive. We also had a Turkish bath, massage and facial at a place which is behind the Yale supermarket (75TL ea - approx £30)
