“LOVELY RELAXING HOLIDAY”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We had a lovely relaxing holiday at the Rhapsody Hotel. It is in a quiet area about 10 minutes walk to the centre of Kalkan. We stayed in a Deluxe room which had great views of the surrounding bay. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left to go to the airport Diane and all of her staff were on hand to help with anything we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a great evening at the Turkish Night at the hotel. The food was excellent and great value at 50TL per person. There are many restaurants (we were told over 200) to choose from in Kalkan. We ate at a different restaurant every night and did not have a bad meal. We would highlight The Small House and Sofra for a special mention. Due to the many hills, Kalkan would not be suitable for anyone with walking difficulties. Thanks to Diane and her team.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are bigger and have a larger balcony

We are all so happy when our Turkish nights are enjoyed, we love them too! The dancers are all so enthusiastic and manage to get those who want to up for a dance, Turkish style! İt`s a great way to work off the great food and maybe a pre-dinner cocktail or two (or is that why people want to dance???)!

Thank you for your kind words about the team here, it means alot to us.

This is our second visit to the Rhapsody Hotel and we would recommend it to anyone who wants a lovely holiday in a fantastic location, only a short walk away from the town centre with stunning veiws over the bay. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Diane (the manageress) is brilliant and makes sure that you are relaxed and confortable and have everything you require for a truely memorable time. I have to say that this hotel has everything that you would ever want. . The rooms are smart and regularly cleaned on a daily basis. Thank you all! Can't wait to return!

I am so pleased that like many of our guests this year you have thoroughly enjoyed your holiday with us. I know the housekeeping ladies work extremely hard to keep everywhere spick and span and will on-pass your kind comments to them.

We booked here for 10 nights, and the hotel has exceeded all expectations. A warm welcome on arrival from Diane, a beautiful room with an amazing view, all staff so courteous, friendly, polite and accommodating. Pool/dining area so relaxing with a great atmosphere. Turkish Night a must! Just what we wanted (and needed). Will definitely return, best holiday ever!

Hello Robert, thank you for your comments, I know you typed them whilst sitting next to the pool! We have had some lovely guests the last 2 weeks, it`s sad to see people leave. Do you remember Margaret, our 84 year old lady travelling on her own? What a character and didn`t everyone spoil her, guests and staff alike. That is typical of this hotel, we become firm friends and like family.

I hope to meet you again, maybe next year?

Thank you to all the staff for helping us enjoy our weekend break at Rhapsody Hotel. We were already holidaying in Turkey and wanted to see somewhere different. Hence a shory break to Kalkan. We booked from the UK before we departed but weren't sure how it would work out. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of decoration and clealiness throughout the hotel. The little extras like afternoon tea and cake, nice bathroom toiletries and slippers helped make it more pleasurable. Diane, the hotel manager made a point of introducing herself to us as she hadn't greeted us on arrival which made us feel very welcome. The hotel had a friendly family feel about it. The breakfast buffet provided plenty of choice and the small poolside bar had a range of drinks and cocktails. Why have I not given a 5 star rating? The minibar was not working and all the drinks were warm wnen we fanied a cold beer on the balconyand the air-con in the living room was not very effective- although it was working. As we were only there for a weekend these issues were very minor and didn 't spoil our overall enjoyment. We look forward to a longer stay in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel, that`s kind of you. I hope the third part of your holiday back at Caliş was fun and how nice to think you would like to spend more days here next time! Yes, I especially like the Premium suite too, lots of room to spread about! İt`s also good if one wants to sleep and the other read or watch TV, as there are 2 rooms.

I am sorry to hear both the air-con and minibar were working under par, I wish you had mentioned it whilst you were here. The problem was electrical, and not the unit as such.
Best wishes
Diane

We and our three children (ranging from 15 to 22 years) have just returned from the most relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable two weeks at the Rhapsody. From the moment we arrived, right up to the last minute we were treated with such warmth and hospitality. The hotel was immaculate, all the staff were so helpful, polite and professional at all times. It was also a pleasure to wake up in the morning and not have to fight to find a sunbed! Not to forget the afternoon tea served around the pool! The Turkish night was great fun too with so much gorgeous food!!! A peaceful and perfect location with stunning views and a short walk into Kalkan. We all had a fabulous time and will definitely be back!!! Thank you to Diane and to all the staff for an unforgettable stay.

Hello to the Watson family

I am so happy you enjoyed your family holiday with us, I know how important it was for you and couldn`t be more pleased for you. You certainly got out and about on some fantastic trips, enjoyed some good food and great company. Ahmet, from Anatolian Sky is such a great guy and we love working with him here at Rhapsody.
The food at our Turkish night is quite something isn`t it, so many meze dishes it`s hard to stop yourself eating too much whilst knowing there is still the main course and dessert to come!

We would all love to see you back with us, maybe next year. We hope so.

I have travelled to 59 Countries and stayed at a wide range of properties and this is one of the best with staff given one of the best i have received ever !! From the greeting on arrival to the send off on departure the staff just simply could not do enough for you if you wanted it.

We have just had an amazing 2 weeks at this property, we paid for the deluxe room which was a good size and had a huge balcony/terrace overlooking the pool.
Diane and her staff are amazing with nothing too much, food was very good at the hotel

I cant not say how wonderful this hotel and what a change Diane has made to the place but the number of repeat guests just says it all !!

Thank you once again for a lovely 2 weeks that were so relaxing.

Cant wait to return :-)

Hello David and Robert
It was our pleasure to have you here at Rhapsody for 2 weeks, you made our jobs very easy by your friendliness and sense of fun. It`s strange not to see you by the pool enjoying the view and sunshine but hopefully you will return next year. As someone who has travelled so extensively your review has even more impact, thank you very much.

I agree the Deluxe rooms are spacious and have a great balcony. That`s why they are sometimes booked a year in advance with some of our guests coming twice in the same season.

Thank for posting the photos, they are lovely.
Best regards
Diane

We read so many positive reviews before arriving that we felt instantly at home. The famous Diane, the manager, was waiting on the steps for us on arrival, and she ensured that our whole stay was marvellous.
We had a superior room ( perfectly fine, although the deluxe ones were bigger and had a larger balcony, whereas ours was small, with only room for a couple of stools - they are hoping to enlarge the balconies soon) and the whole hotel was immaculately clean. Diane runs a great team - Mehmet the bar manager and his team of wonderful colleagues were efficient and discreet, with great eye for detail and constantly on the lookout for ways in which to be helpful. The food was fabulous , and it's just a shame that when on holiday most people like to walk into town to eat rather than in their hotel, to wander through the shops, look at the harbour ( and walk their dinner off afterwards - up the very steep hill!). We ate at the hotel on two nights only - one was the fantastic Turkish night - and the food (outstanding ) and view (perfect) was at least as good as anything in town. But not many people eat in, so it's a little quiet. Ideal if you've done a day trip. The chef is shy but absolutely fantastic - how do you get poached eggs, which are sitting on a buffet, to still be perfect by the time you eat them?! And as for tea and cake every day at 4.30 pm - the highlight of the day!

The whole atmosphere was relaxing, peaceful, with a superb view of the bay from our balcony. I had a Turkish bath and massage at the beginning of the holiday, too, which was refreshing, good fun and excellent value.

We heartily recommend this hotel, and will certainly be returning ( and we know that Diane goes out of her way to reply to all these reviews - a testament to her good humour and professionalism!!) Well done, Diane!

Room Tip: Choose superior at least, deluxe if you can. If choosing deluxe, ask for one of the centre ones, as...

When I read your review I must say I felt a little glow with your kind words about the team and your holiday here at Rhapsody.

I want to pick-up about your Turkish bath and massage experience. Thank you for saying it was a great start to your holiday, I know the body scrub certainly makes your body ready for tanning! As for great value, yes we have July and August special prices which, makes it even more tempting.

As I have mentioned before we may not be the most luxurious hotel in Kalkan but I am sure we are the friendliest and cleanest! I am very proud, thank you
