Reviewed October 17, 2011

Friendly and family run the Santosa is ideally located for a short break in the centre of Kas. A short walk from the otogar, although Denis, the owner of Santaosa collected us within minutes of our arrival having been alerted by a friend who spotted us getting off the bus. Our stay was easy to arrange through booking.com (with no penalties for a cancellation up to 24hrs before you arrive) and there appeared to be no price difference whether we booked direct or not. Lovely Turkish breakfast is included, and eaten on the roof top terrace which overlooks the town and valley. The pension and rooms are basic but comfortable and not cramped and have ensuite facilities. We didn't have a balcony although some rooms did, but we had a beautiful view. From the Santosa, the harbour is a short walk, ideal for trips to Kerkova and other islands. Well positioned for acitivities such as snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking and walking - or if you just want a walk through the quaint ottoman style streets to do some window shopping or pass the time in a cafe - it's ideal.

Room Tip: Ask for what you'd like and if they can oblige they will

we had a really great experience staying here--booked for one niight and stayed for five...hostel is a few minutes walk from the action..but is really quiet..our ground floor room was also really cool despite the 38 degree heat outside..possibly a bit pricey, but i think it was worth it..Deniz was a helpful and friendly host.

the hotel is a small guesthouse offering a warm and caring welcome: the comfort and services are appropriate to the level of the structure, which is notable for the large breakfast and the friendly helpfulness of the owners

Before I write my review, I want to state that this place is a pension, and your comfort depends on your preference between luxurious stay or more friendly & warm environment. If you are not used to stay in a place that is friendly and connected to their guests (of course preserving your freedom..) for a less luxurious stay, or if you think you cannot handle warmth and disturb owners or other people staying in the pension, you should consider choosing another type of accommodation for your vacation.

I went this pension without reservation in August and booked a room in their 1st floor. First of all, the family is very relaxed and warm. They even do not ask things like pre-payment and your exact check out dates, just enjoy your stay, inform them one night before you leave and pay when you leave as I did. They are specially very connected to their guests, knowing their names, as well as their children's. They solve problems in your rooms as soon as you report them (like my douche).
Good to state also; staying here, as such a warm and connected environment, you should not worry about your freedom, they are modern and free minded family, as most of the locals in Kas, and I didn't have any issues in my stay.
The room was huge compared to other pensions and the air conditioning was new and efficient. The neighbourhood is silent and nice for a good rest.
Another nice thing if you stay there is their barbecue nights. They sometimes barbecue fishes in their teras for their guests, with homemade side dishes. The side dishes they made are nice and goes great with the fish.

Because the pension is located in centre, the teras has very limited sea view. It mostly sees the city itself.

I had a comfortable stay with lots of nice friendships, chats and food eaten. Recommended to anyone looking for such a place in Kas.

Good location in the middle of the town and down a side road so very quiet. The room was spotless with good size bathroom. The roof terrace is great - wonderful views and a lovely place to relax. The breakfast, served on the terrace, was very good and the family that run the pension were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again!

My friend and I were there last week. We stayed in room nr 7. First of all Santosa is much more than a pension.It's a family house and you feel as you have just visited your relatives. During our five-day trip Deniz and his wife Meryem made us feel like we were home. On our returning day when we missed our bus, Deniz and his sweet family carried us to Fethiye which is almost 100kms far from Kas with their own car!!! Surely we catched our bus and they saw off us from the bus station! It was a great adventure. On the other hand, dinners are nice, the panorama is good and it is all worth money you pay for the service.

We just returned from 4 nights at the Santosa Pension in the lovely town of Kas on the Turkish Mediterranean coast. The room was perfect--good-sized (ours had a balcony), very clean, great location, fantastic view on terrace where breakfast is served, and tastefully decorated. But the best was the lovely family who runs it. They were warm and accommodating and spoke English.
