I strongly recommend this hotel!
For our first visit to Turkey and Kalkan, this hotel provided a really satisfying introduction and would be hard to beat.
The location is ideal being halfway up the hill with easy access to a lot of shops and facilities but far enough away from the main bustle and harbour if you want peace and quiet. The hotel facilities are very good with a lovely clean pool and poolside snack bar. There is also a garden bar if you feel the need to catch up on football but this never interferes with your stay if you don't want it. Additionally, a main attraction is the moonlight roof terrace bar which offers stunning views of Kalkan and the harbour and beyond. It's a very relaxing and enjoyable experience to sip your cocktail or beer as the sun goes down. Furthermore there is an adjacent rooftop hotel restaurant providing a range of meals to suit most pockets.
Let's get the next bit over and done with ... yes the rooms are quite small, but, I didn't travel here to stay in the room; once inside I was really pleased with the cleanliness and excellent air conditioning, the access to electric sockets and the small but useful balcony.
The staff are friendly, helpful and informative and do their very best to make your stay a pleasant one, I was very impressed with Ahmed the owner and Yusuf, Gurkan, Hassan, Nuree,, Mehmet and the cleaning staff.( apologies for spellings )
So ... friendliness 10, location 10, facilities 9, cleanliness 10 and if that isn't enough the hotel also offers a range of massages from a qualified and experienced masseur!
Nothing is perfection and there is room for improvement on the breakfast but it still provides a fair start to the day
In conclusion ... if you are going to Turkey try Kalkan and if you are going to Kalkan you should definitely try this excellent hotel.
