“Cute pension in great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Walking distance to town, rooms are clean, air conditioned and quiet, free large breakfast - highly recommend having dinner at this place as the owners are also chefs!! Nice rooftop terrace with great views overlooking kas where you can watch the sunset while having your home cooked dinner!

Santosa is run by Deniz and his wife and has a very homely, relaxed vibe. It is low-cost accomodation, so don't expect anything fancy ... do expect a clean, decent-sized room with all you need, a pretty good breakfast (for the price) on a sunny terrace and a location that's just a short walk from the harbour/sea. We did not book in advance so our room did not have a view, but did have a small outside patio which was great ... Deniz also sometimes does dinners for guests and at 15TL it's a good deal. A fish barbeque with an array of salads and bread ... simple, delicious food. There's wi-fi, you can get your laundry done and Deniz can book your boat trips or whatever you need. My only gripe, as I am a coffee lover – be prepared for Nescafé instant! (this is not unique to Santosa however, we found this at quite a few places in Turkey) ... also, as it is family-run, there are literally quite a few kids running around the breakfast area every morning! Not really a problem. Overall, it's a thumbs up for Santosa. The casualness of this pension really adds to the holiday feeling ...

This is a great deal. Clean, airy and great room (we had an amazing view over the town and mountains, but I don't think that all rooms do). As soon as we got here we felt relaxed and welcome. Kas has been a highlight in our trip and I think a lot to do with this place. Denis booked a tour for us (through Xanthos Tours, at same price as if you book direct) and was helpful in planning what to do with our days. I loved this place and would definitely stay again. We stayed 4 nights and could easily have stayed more if time allowed.

We stayed here for 4 nights with our 3 boys (ages 8, 4 and 4) and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was very large, clean and bright with a private balcony (room 5, I think). The location is very good, halfway between the otogar and the harbour (as are most of the pensions). The wifi was good and strong wherever I tried it. Breakfast was a good typical Turkish breakfast but served buffet style, with a few extras like cereal and yogurt...really yuimmy. Deniz and Meryem and their parents were great hosts. My only one tiny complaint is that the bathroom was a bit small and had no window or outside vent, which is very minor, indeed. I can happily recommend this place.

In Kas I stayed at the Santosa pension, this pension is wonderful, family owned that emitted great energy. They let me use the kitchen to cook my own breakfast, they let me use a wash bin for my clothes, which they don’t mind if you hang your clothes on the outside line. A private bathroom, free wireless Internet, and free tea for only 40 YTL a night, I stayed three nights. The town is touristy, although relaxed.

i was recommended by my friend from goreme to stay at the Santosa pension for 2 nights. was not dissapointed. arrived at the bus station and 1 call to deniz to advise of my arrival he arrived within minutes on his motor bike. seeing that i had a rather large suicase with me , phoned his wife and she arrived with the car to pick me up. what a wonderful family . had a rather large room to myself and spotlessly clean. breakfast was typical turkish but we were also served fresh fruit. really/really nice . enjoyed my stay at santosa highly recommended and conveniently situated . short walk to the centre of the town and harbour.

Room Tip: choose a room with a balcony, if u are a smoker. also lovely mountain views.
