“Lovely hotel and great staff”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

We had two wonderful weeks here at the end of September. The reason we loved it so much was the beautiful views, the great staff, and the ambience of the hotel. Food was lovely and an easy walk / taxi ride down the hill to the town which has an abundance of super restaurants.
We particularly liked coming back from a meal in town and having drinks with the other guests at the bar looking out over the town. It's also a good location for exploring nearby beaches.

We made some great friends and we hope to be back very soon!

We had a beautiful week's stay. Everything was excellent and as other reviewers say.

The view from the bar was to die for and the infinity pool added to the delightful atmosphere.

Also lovely that you could wander down any time of day and get sunbeds with shades together and the place never felt crowded.

Walk to the town is downhill and quite challenging if you are not fully fit, but do recommend you get a taxi back!

What a wonderful place to stay! First time but will be back. Great views, pretty hotel with wonderful staff - and yes, Lokman! Would highly recommend this as a tranquil place to stay above the town so peaceful for relaxing but within easy walking to town.

Room Tip: Room 203 - screened from the pool by foliage which was great. Still had good views and best for seei...

Just returned from our ninth year at the Mediteran.Everything was as expected with a few improvements this year which were appreciated.New showers in rooms much better.
We only hope that this hotel does not become too upmarket as its charm lies in its simple,relaxing style with many repeat guests.
The staff are friendly and helpful.The rooms and sun terrace are very spacious.
We look forward to our next visit.

We enjoyed a two week stay at Hotel Mediteran. This is a small, family run hotel with 20 rooms/suites. From the moment we arrived and Gamze emerged from her seat in the shade to welcome us, we were treated with the utmost warmth, kindness and hospitality by all the staff.

We had a ground floor suite with a very comfortable lounge area and kitchenette. Our rooms were kept spotlessly clean by the domestic staff, with a full set of fresh towels each morning and frequent linen changes. Although they spoke little English, there was always a lovely smile and 'good morning' when we met.

We enjoyed our quiet outdoor terrace area, especially during the evening. We ate out there on a number of occasions and when we mentioned it to Lokman he gave us additional tea lights for our table to create a lovely ambience.

The sun terraces and pool area are spacious, with plenty of comfortable cushioned sunbeds. The view over Kalkan and out to sea is truly memorable. Surely the best in Kalkan. Mehmet always ensures the pool and terrace areas are well maintained and clean. For those, like us, seeking shade, there are large umbrellas in all areas, easily wheeled around to suit. Mehmet is particularly attentive at breakfast and lunch to ensure the umbrellas are well placed to afford maximum shade for guests.

The restaurant area has the same fabulous view as the bar. A pre dinner drink at the bar is really special, with the twinkling lights of Kalkan below matching Murat's twinkling smile as he welcomes you. He is such an interesting young man that conversations at the bar take on quite a deep level at times and are light hearted and fun at others. Needless to say he provides an excellent gin and tonic!

The restaurant food can’t compete with some of the higher class restaurants in Kalkan itself but we had some very enjoyable meals. We particularly liked the tabbouleh with its lovely mixture of flavours and fresh parsley. Combined with a chicken shish kebab it made an extremely tasty meal, capturing the essence of traditional Turkish food.

The Turkish/continental style buffet breakfasts offer a good variety of foods from cereals, breads and preserves to yoghurt, cheeses, eggs, tomatoes, olives, tahini etc. We particularly enjoyed the very fresh selection of fresh fruit every day. It is a more than adequate continental breakfast, with the addition of a hot plate on several mornings for cooked eggs. Neemet is a young lady about to go off to university and she was always on hand at breakfast with a gentle smiling welcome, practising her English. She also helped to bring round the complimentary glasses of tea and cake at 5pm. A lovely touch.

Simpsons provide their own concierge to supplement the hotel staff. Lokman is a real credit to them. He is always on hand to answer questions, provide information and give insights into Turkish culture. He will organise trips for you and nothing is ever too much trouble for him. A true professional.

If you are looking for a stylish, glass and chrome hotel, which could be in any country in the world, then maybe the Mediteran is not for you. If, however, you are seeking a truly comfortable hotel, with genuine Turkish hospitality then you will find it here and look forward to returning in the future, as so many guests already do. It is an island of tranquility above the busy bustle of Kalkan. It was our first visit but we hope to be back in the future.

My husband and I returned for our 9th year to this lovely hotel in Kalkan. As usual the staff at the hotel cannot be praised enough for their excellent service as nothing is too much trouble for them to make your holiday perfect. Lokman was a new addition to the hotel as a concierge provided by Simpson Travel, and like the other staff was extremely friendly and helpful in providing anything you needed.

I was very surprised to read the recent negative feedback on this hotel as they appeared to be reviewing a different establishment. They compared this hotel with the Lykia and Regency Hotels stating that they are similarly priced, but having looked into the costs I can assure you that they are very much more expensive than the Mediteran Hotel and therefore should not be used as a comparison. We ate at the hotel on several occasions and found the food very good, yes there are many very good restaurants in Kalkan and you can pay a very high price for good food served on designer plates with extra fancy bits, but that is not necessarily what a lot of people want. Simpson Travel provide a complimentary meal on arrival this year which was very welcomed and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Mediteran Hotel is a small friendly mainly family run hotel and gives the personal touch to your holiday experience, so if you are looking to stay at a large hotel where the staff don't know your name and you are just a number in a room, then don't go to the Mediteran Hotel.

We are already looking forward to staying here again next year where no doubt we will have another memorable relaxing holiday, mainly due to the exceptional service provided by all the staff.

This was our first trip to Turkey and we would definitely return to the Mediteran. This small laid back, family run hotel is the ultimate in relaxation.The views from the hotel are the best in Kalkan, and at night while enjoying a drink at the bar, the view is hard to beat. The staff were wonderful and went that extra mile to ensure a hassle free holiday with great personal service.Murat runs the hotel on a day to day basis with his twin sister Gamze and they are assisted by Nimet and Mehmet- a very friendly and efficient team .Lokman who works for Simpson travel was also amazing, nothing was too much trouble and he was in attendance 6 days a week. We have noted the negative remarks made about this hotel and are surprised by them as we did not experience this at the hotel. We used the hotel restaurant regularly and the food was of very good quality and reasonably priced. The breakfast is quiet basic but was sufficient for our needs. Kalkan is a fantastic destination and we will definitely return.
