We loved this holiday. We had never been to Turkey before so Kalkan was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. Beautiful place. We did not have a bad meal in any of the restaurants, and there are loads of them. From the apartments it is literally a 5 min walk and you and in the middle of the town and there are also restaurants at the end of the street. The staff at the apartments are so friendly and welcoming. We were there for two weeks and the first week we went to the BBQ which is held every Monday night round one of the two pools. The tables at the bar are put together so you can get to chat to the other guests which was a nice touch. And Yasar (probably not spelt right), the Manager, makes a gorgeous homemade mint lemonade. We stayed in room 5 which was absolutely fine and has the most beautiful view from the balcony. We had a look round the penthouse (no. 6) which was massive. Rooms 16 an 17 have rooftop terraces which we would probably go for when we go again (which we will be doing). We went on a couple of trips, one to the gorge which was an experience. Prepare to get very wet and wear shoes that can't be pulled off your feet in water! Our flight home wasn't until 12.25 the next morning so we booked on a trip on the last day which worked out perfect. Its a trip down the Dalyan river. What happens is you get picked up at 7.30am with all your cases etc. A taxi takes you to a bus which drops you off for a boat trip down the Dalyan river, seeing the turtles. You stop off for lunch which is included in the price and then head off to the mud baths and sulphur pool before getting back on the boat and heading off to the beach for a couple of hours. After that you get on a bus and are then taken to a hotel right beside the airport where you are given your suitcases back and you have a room to get showered etc and have the room right up until you need to leave to go the airport for your flight. A buffet meal at the hotel is also included. It was a perfect way to round off a perfect holiday.
