We booked this as a last minute package holiday, something we almost never do. We were allocated an apartment on arrival; we had booked a hotel room. On the one hand the rooms are located in a much newer & nicer looking building; however, on the other we were happy to have a fridge, table etc. although the fixtures & fittings were somewhat worn & shabby looking. It was kept very clean throughout our stay.
I believe the brochure does not emphasise enough quite how steep the walk is into & out of town. We are two fit & healthy people but even we struggled up in the heat of the day. The famous 'shuttlebus' service from the hotel really only takes you into & from town about a third of the distance; you still have to do the worst part yourself.
The hotel tends to cater for it's (entire?) British clientele; we spent day one by the pool & were horrified when the footie was shown on the massive TV screen in the bar, with the sound turned up, RIGHT next to the pool. We loathe football & go on holiday to get away from such things. We declined the 'Turkish Night' for many reasons, number one being that they advertised that 'proper chips' would be served with the meal. We ate once by the pool & felt that, whilst adequate, it was poor value for what we paid.
If you watch 'Benidorm' I can almost Guarrentee you will spot one or two characters here!
Not a bad place, & we LOVED Kalkan. It's just this accommodation was not our personal cup of tea. We'll return to Kalkan, but next time make our own arrangements.
