We stayed at the Samira Deluxe in early july 2012, and had a fantastic stay..
The hotel was lovely, very well run, with very attentive staff. Nothing was too much trouble, and a special mention must go to Josef and his staff in the Pool Bar/restaurant, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Food in the restaurant was very good, with a great choice of meals, and prices were reasonable.
We stayed in room 705 which had a side sea view of Kalkan Bay which is simply stunning. The room was lovely, and very very clean.
The hotel had a good mix of people, lots of couples, and families with older teenagers, there was no rowdiness at all, very relaxing. The same could be said for the town as a whole.
Kalkan itself is a superb destination, full of English people, but with a lovely Turkish feel to it. Loads of restaurants, all with lovely views of the bay from the terrace. We particularly like Mussakka where we were treated like royalty. The walk into town from the hotel is a 15 stroll downhill, and in that heat we'd definately recommend the 11TL Taxi ride back
We will be back at the Samira Deluxe, and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relaxing break in nice surroundings

The hotel was a long way from the center of Kalkan. The taxis charged £6 each time for a 3 minute trip which adds up. Too far to walk back in day with the heat and too dark and up hill to walk at night. The walk is very steep
The breakfast was awful. They only offered rolls no fresh bread which Turkey is famous for. Only water melon no other fruits. Watered down orange juice. It was clear they did not put thought or pride into it
The hotel was spotlessly clean but it was very loud in the evenings and they did bingo and kareoke. I don't do that in UK so I don't want that on holiday.
Kalkan has so many gorgeous restaurants, bars, shops, ambiance and great beach clubs. This hotel is for people who just want to stay at the hotel, in day and evening and not experience Kalkan and just mix with British hotel guests and not experience Turkey , the amazing food in Kalkan etc
It was my worst nightmare. The managers were the rudest people ever all they cared about was getting as much money from the clients they could and I had to make several complaints that they charged me for water I had supposedly had from my room. many people in the hotel also said they were charged for drinks they never had. They also don't provide a room you can change and have a shower in for late departures. I have traveled all over the world and have never had this experience before.
The bar staff were friendly but not professional. It is a typical package hotel for the British tourists.
It will not stop me going back to Kalkan as it is stunning but I ost certainly would not stay in this hotel ever again.

Top Tips:
The bus station only which was great if you wanted to catch a bus to Kas, Patara, Kaputas beach thats it

Would you recommend Travel Republic to a friend?

“The hotel and the rooms were very clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and the receptionist helpful. We struggled to get a brolly round the pool a couple of times and it was annoying that some people left towels on sunbeds for hours before returning to them when we needed somewhere to sit. The music was our main complaint. The majority of the guests sitting at the pool bar in the evenings were in their 40s and 50s yet they continuously played boom boom dance music. We asked for other tracks and we were encouraged to make a list for the DJ yet never once did they change the music or play any of our requests. The staff were playing music for themselves and not for the guests. We kept our own record of what we had spent in the bar and hotel restaurant each day as some people were saying they were over charged but our bill was spot on at the end of the holiday. The walk into town and back was a bit of a struggle in the heat because it was quite steep so not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties, unless you are prepared to get taxis, which we did at night on a couple of occassions - around £5.00 a trip. There is a hotel shuttle bus 4 times a day but we didn't use it as it never coincided with the times we wanted to go into town. The bus station is close by so easy to get around on the dolmus buses. Kalkan is beautiful and the view from the hotel is magnificent. There are lots of good restaurants in town and we never had a bad meal.« less

“Top Tip:CHOPS restaurant on the other side of the mountain - if you book a table they will come down and pick you up and bring you back when you are ready. A nice change from going into town.We booked our trips with Unlimited - they are in town - Tlos and Saklikante Gorge was a good trip - only 8 of us on it in a nice minibus with a good guide. And we did Kekova sunken city and Simena island. This was around 25 - 30 people on the boat and the lunch was excellent

We have recently returned from Kalkan having stayed at the Samira Deluxe. The hotel and apartments were kept spotlessly clean, all of the staff worked tirelessly throughout the day and into the evening to ensure that guests were well catered for. The location above the town was welcome as it captured any breeze in the evening and the shuttle bus which ran at certain times throughout the day was very welcome. Special mention must go to Yusuf who managed the pool bar etc for his friendly and efficient demeanour and of course to Fatima who is an example to all of how to do things right. This is our second visit to the Samira as indeed it seemed to be for many others. Well done and thank you.

The hotel we stayed in was block A, it is very modern and very clean and comes with all the mod cons including free air con and movie channels on the telly. The rooms were cleaned every day wih towels being changed twice in out 1 week stay.

The pool area is very nice but temperatures can get very high but this is not a negative just to warn really (take factor 50 lol) the wifi default pin for the pool area is 1111111111 this also works from reception.

The food is very nice and reasonably priced. The breakfast is traditional Turkish so meat/cheese/bread etc but fills a hole. The only thing to watch would be your room tab and pay off at the end of each day and keep a note of what you buy as mistakes do happen.

The hotel itself is based up in the mountains about 10 mins taxi/shuttle bus service from hotel to Migros local supermarket which is the pick up and drop off point put on free from the hotel at certain times of the day, taxis cost around £4 / 13 Turkish lira

DO NOT UNDERESIMATE THE HILLS (lol)

The staff were very pleasent always happy to help and friendly and work very long hours so have some patience with them when trying to disuss matters.

Overall the hotel an service and location is very high and if I were to go back I perhaps would stay closer to the town but this is just choice.

Thank you for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday
