I apologize for the lateness of this review, some things I get to slowly. :-(
We live in a small village outside of Kaş and for my wife's birthday in May, I arranged for a surprise visit of her daughter and sister from Istanbul and a stay at the Medusa Hotel. Peter and Nurçin, the hotel hosts, arranged everything including the car from Dalaman airport for the Istanbul travelers. I secretly arranged for two suites for the four of us and both were facing the sea with ample balconies to sit on early morning. I asked them all to keep the visit a surprise and they and their staff were as secretive as can be. When our visitors arrived late at night the desk clerk used the "passport police" as an excuse to call our room and ask us to come to the lobby where my wife was duly surprised by her daughter and sister.
Our stay was delightful, the staff are courteous and friendly beyond measure and worked to meet our every need. The night clerk served tea to my wife, her daughter and sister until the early morning hours and without a complaint or lack of service. The breakfast buffet was more than ample and although some reviewers have commented on the repetitiousness of the layout, I have never felt this about Turkish breakfasts. Cereal grains, very fresh tomatoes and cucumbers, assorted cheeses, marmalades, jams and honey along with both white and wheat bread. A classical Mediterranean fare!
We ate at outside Kaş restaurants for our long weekend so I cannot comment upon the quality of the dinner or lunch but from what I observed the fare appeared to be more than adequate.
The rooms were extremely clean and the hotel was recently updated and modernized. Wireless Internet is adequate in the rooms, LCD TV, modern bath facilities, large closet and very comfortable beds.
The hotel has its own small beach area and a cafe/bar below the hotel and immediately above the beach. Sleeping at nights is very comfortable and in early May we used the A/C during the day but found its sound to be quiet enough that a nap was in order. :-)
As other reviewers have noted, it is a long walk to the lobby and there is no lift. The staff however went out of their way to meet and greet us and carry our bags and shopping to our rooms. Quality service plus and always with a smile.
Peter serves Likya wine at his bar and I have developed a taste for it so much that a couple of weeks later we made a visit to their winery and were treated to both a tour and a formal wine tasting. The quality of Likya red is consistent unlike some other local brands I have tried. I cannot comment much upon their white or rose as I do not drink them. http://kasadventuretravel.blogspot.com/2010/06/likya-winery.html
Try the Medusa, I am sure you will like it.
