Patara Prince Hotel & Resort
Ranked #25 of 40 Hotels in Kalkan
Reviewed December 23, 2011

The Patara Prince, like many resorts in other destination countries like Mexico is part hotel and part time-share. This review is for the honeymoon room (top tier of rooms, full suite, balconies) of the HOTEL. It was amazing, maybe my best high-end hotel experience ever. Imagine a panoramic view (even the bathroom thx to shutters) of the deep blue Mediterrnean sea, a stones throw from downtown Kalkan. Only place I've sayed in with lovely help and remotely controlled window blinds. Great & would stay again.

Stayed: January 2011, traveled solo

Just returned from two weeks stay in the Palm Tree apartment Patara Prince Kalkan, apartment 227
The pre holiday information was clear and informative with Nicky & Steve the owners being only to willing to help with the setting up of the holiday
The apartment was very well equipped and extremely comfortable, and had a very large balcony with excellent views.
The apartment was well kept, Tracy who maintains the property was welcoming on arrival and extremely helpful throughout our stay.
The resort is very beautiful and meticulously maintained and the staff were friendly.
The apartment is at the top of the resort and a courtesy bus picks up and drops of every 15 minutes
The swimming pools were wonderful and had excellent views, there are also many platforms overlooking the sea which we used most days as they were private and were convenient for swimming in the bay.
We have stayed in the centre of Kalkan on many occasions and know it to be a wonderful and vibrant town with many excellent restaurants and shops, on this occasion we chose to stay around the bay in the Patara Prince resort to enjoy the views of both the bay and the town of kalkan.
Getting to Kalkan town was a pleasant 15 minute walk or a 5 minute taxi ride or you can even take the taxi boat over during the day, if you are walking at night we would recommend taking a torch as the road is quite dark.
For the guys a Turkish shave is a must, its an experience and very reasonably priced, my 20TL ( about £6.50 ) got me a hair wash and cut, wet shave with cut throat razor, hair on my ears removed with fire, and nose hair trimmed, all followed up with a shoulder massage, I Can recommend Eddie in the wooden hut below the PTT.
All the restaurants we ate in served excellent food, but two that stood out were Sultans at the top of the resort next to the PTT serving authentic Turkish food at a very reasonable price and Coast at the bottom of the resort serving lovely food with a great view of the harbour.
We would definitely return to the Palm Tree apartment in Patara Prince as we thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks in October with glorious sunshine during the day, cooling to pleasant temperature during the evening and the sea at this time of year is a perfect temperature to swim.
We are a couple and both the apartment and resort were ideal for us, having said this the apartment and resort would be well suited to families also.

After reading many mixed reviews we were keen to see what all the fuss was about, and just get on with our holiday,So we arrived at about 2.30 in the morning to be greeted by a rather helpful and polite Hotel night receptionist, he checked us in with no fuss and even helped us up to our room, ok via the elavator, and it was only one floor but was a nice touch,well we arrived at the room to be greeted by a very spacious room, bright and clean, and cool, he showed us the wobbly ceiling fan and requested we dont use that.Well the view from the room was totally incredible, at night Kalkan looked rather special and mezmerizing, Shimmering lights way up into the mountains,Incredible. Anyways, the A/C was rather good and did the job, some nights it made a bit of noise so i just switched it down to a lower setting and it was fine, The room had a sofa, tv, fridge,table,ample lighting, good size balcony, two reclining chairs and a table, good size bathroom, nice and bright,large wardrobe, with lights that switch on when the door is opened.Remember your room key operates the electrics in your room so when you go in the key goes into a slot and then then everything works.The Breakfasts were very good, fresh fruit, Wonderful Breads and rolls, lots of salads,and cereals and a good omelette station for fried eggs and of course omelettes, plenty of tea and coffee and fruit juices.We were half board so ate in the waterfront resteraunt for lunch and the chicken sandwiches were excellent,But there were other good choices of Salads, and sea food and pastas.Dinner was also in the same resteraunt and A La carte was outside by the main pool.Tables lit up by candlelight.The grounds were excellent, plenty of greenery and flowers, and the gardeners were constantly doing a very good job. Four pools in all and we mainly stayed by the Adult only pool, (bliss),Also i must say a BIG thank you to ESEN who made the best vodka and diet cokes and delivered the Efes beer perfectly chilled. Excellent amount of sunbeds and space, and a few steps down to the sea.Overall the Patara Prince is stunning, Kalkan is stunning,Will be returning next year, thats for sure.

Room Tip: 815 first floor, incredible view,

We have recently returned from a weeks holiday staying in Villa 189 at the Patara Prince Resort. It was fantastic. The villa was all we had imagined with amazing views and a lovely plunge pool. The interior was well equiped, spacious with good air con upstairs and plenty of hot water. We ate in the A La Carte restaurant a few times and had breakfast twice and were more than happy with the food in both. The resort is beautiful and well maintained, there are gardeners and handmen everywhere. The 2 pools are lovely and its a real delight to swim in the sea. we were lucky to see turtles on 2 occasions. Yes the staff are reserved but thats mainly because of their lack of English but they were always helpfull and polite. We used the water taxi to Kalkan and also the normal taxis which were helpful and cheap and it was a godsend to have the mini bus up the hill especially in the heat. We are already planning our next trip. We travelled trough Elixir Holidays who were fantastic. Kalkan was also lovely and there was a massive choice of very good restaurants. We recommend Aubergine and Salt n Pepper.

Just returned home from two glorious weeks at the Patara Prince hotel ...we miss you already.!After reading negative reviews over the past few months we were eager to see the Patara Prince hotel for ourselves.We arrived at 2.30am to be greeted with a warm smile and welcome by the Front desk night manager,with very little fuss we were shown to our room 815 on the first floor. He showed us around the room and then saved the best til last, The view.!INCREDIBLE. Full sea view and also Kalkan harbour and town view was breathtaking.After a good nights sleep in the very comfortable beds and excellent Air conditioning we went down to breakfast which was very varied in choice which ranged from Omellettes,fried eggs ,boiled, various salad, cheeses, Turkish fresh baked bread,cereals, tea and coffee and fruit juices, cerals,the list was endless.The gardens around the resort were immaculate and very well maintained,Yes there were plenty of steps but this added to the charm of Patara prince with incredible views of the bay from every angle and every level.Several pools to laze by on a hot summers day. We spent most of our time by the adult pool which was very quiet and peaceful with attentive barman Muhorrem Esen who supplied us with copious amonts of Efes beer, Water and fruit juices. A Huge thank you to him.In the evenings for dinner we ate at the Patara A la carte resteraunt which also served a fantastic selection of buffet meals, from salads to hot meat dishes and a lovely sicilian themed nights,also a good choice of desserts.The Hotel is very relaxing and tranquil and has a charm of its own.Thank you Patara prince hotel and staff for making this a very special holiday. CANT WAIT TO RETURN.!!!!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed the 6 nights I spent at the Patara Prince resort in June 2011.
The apartment was beautiful, the scenery breathtaking.

The stairs were challenging but I was a lot fitter by the end of my stay. The town of Kalkan is charming with many fine restaurants and some terrific shopping. Brought home lots of lovely things to remember this trip.

I wouldnt recommend eating at the resort. The food and prices in town are much better.
Having said this it was a wonderful holiday!

After using tripadvisor to plan my trip I feel its my turn to give some tips back.

Ive just got back from 8 nights at Patara prince hotel. I was concerened about the bad reviews I almost was going to cancel my booking.

But Im glad we stuck with it, the hotel is lovely old world ( bit crumbling ) Turkish tuscan charm.
We got a very nice room with sea and kalkan bay view - which we requested.
Aircon worked well, there were comments there were just fans? thats not true.

I agree the whole resort could do with a refurb - but it was very comfortable and excellent location you can literrally roll down stairs from breakfast into turquoise med sea. And 10 min ( 5TL ) boat trip into Kalkan town.

ONLY real issue is the breakfast - sorry but it was awful.
Patara Prince pls you need to mix it up a bit - add a few more fruit variety's - local fruit vinyards are all around in the mountains they cant be that hard to get hold of.

Also you need to add a filter coffee machine - no one expects latte's but just good strong filter coffee. The coffee machine at present is like dishwater!

Otherwise and lovely stay thankyou Patara Prince.

Room Tip: ask for sea view
