“Nice and easy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

We spent 4 nights in this nice family run guest house. Rooms and bathrooms are spotless. Location is excellent. In my opinion the best guest house on the street (there 3 or 4 more, we checked all of them). Opt for upper floor rooms with nice view and bigger bathroom.

Located within 2 minutes walk from the Otagar in Kas, the Santosa Pansiyon was a great place to base ourselves while spending a couple of days in the town. An excellent spread was laid on for breakfast on the roof terrace. Rooms were spotless and comfortable. Compared with other places we stayed in Turkey, the price was excellent, especially for a busy town such as Kas. Also the resident cat is the friendliest cat i've ever seen!

Dennis and Maria are very kind and lovely hosts which makes this clean and family pension a great place to stay. I was going to stay 1 night and ended up staying three!

It has a great roof top terrace and breakfast is plentiful with the standard Turkish breaky (eggs, bread, jams, tomato, cheese, cucumber etc). I would suggest trying to avoid the rooms on the ground floor, but I did have to stay in one on my first night as the others were full and it wasn't too bad, the others just receive more light and have better views.

The rooms have good air conditioning, plenty of power sockets, good beds and extra blankets. They are simple but very clean and comfortable.

The location is also fantastic. Very close to bus station and parallel to the Main Street with a small side street connecting it to the back on the pension, but it's also nice and quiet, I would come back and stay again!

I spent a couple of nights at Santosa Pension. As soon as I got there I was invited inside their house for a cup of tea, they were very welcoming and kind. The location is great as its only a short walk down the road to the city centre. It's affordable and the laundry service is for the next day. I highly recommend this place.

Tired after a long bus ride, wandering along the streets of Kas clueless, we ran into the owner who at first seems like a hustle - " follow me to my pension it is the best in Kas" etc. I was doubtful but desperate so we followed and reluctantly agreed to a room and price. Things just got better from there. We got the smallest room in the place and because it was noisy we wished we had spent a little more. Turns out the owner is a prince: he helped some French couple (guests) that were in trouble - the boyfriend or husband appeared to have been beaten - anyway he gets help for them in the middle of the night, he really went to bat folks. Another good sign - there were a lot of repeat guests. We stayed 4 nights. Great location, great price and the best meal in our month in Turkey; let me explain: every few nights the owner puts on a BBQ at $20usd per person. It is quite a spread. Their dining deck has a beautiful panarama of the city and the comaraderie among the guests was a rare thing. We never found anything like this elsewhere on our trip. The staff is dedicated to providing a great experience. Only downer we had to prod them into cleaning and resupplying the room.

Arrived at the Santosa after a long journey only to be told only basement room available even though we had booked a high floor sea view room. Room was clean but was a basement room. It had 2 window but we could not open them as there were no mozzie nets and although there was wire on the metal work the cats could get into your room. The room was also not cleaned during our 5 day stay, I did ask but why but was told that the owners wife had not checked on the cleaners as her son was unwell and she was suffering from stress!! Breakfast was served on the roof terrace and was good, and they also do bbq's several nights a week which we did'nt attend but everyone said they were excellent. On the whole a very disappointed stay considering all the great write-ups

Guys, ıf you seach a place to stay ın Kaş for a reasonable prıce and a real Turkısh famıly experıence, please do not mıss thıs place. Dennıs and Marıa are super nıce owners of thıs place and they wıll warmly welcome you! The penson and the rooms are sımple but spotless clean and absolutely worthy for the prıce you pay. We slept on a nıce bed ın the roof-top terrace wıth a stunnıng vıew of the cıty for only 60 TL ıncludıng an amazıng buffet breakfast (Turkısh breakfast wıth fresh tomatoes and cucumber, olıves, dıfferent sort of cheeses bread marmelades, cereals and fresh fruıt).
