My fiance and I tried to read all reviews before going to Kas to find the right hotel for a relaxing couple days, we could not have made a better choice.
The Amphora hotel is located on the peninsula of Kas, approximately 7 km from the city (nice walk along the water, good exercise) for our trip it was nice to be away from the shops and restaurants for some quiet when we wanted it. Getting to the town is very accessible either by foot which is about an hour walk, or there is a bus that runs every 30 mins during high season that you can pick up on the ring road that passes all the hotels on the peninsula. The bus ride in is approx 2.25 TL and picks you up right outside your hotel on the side of the road and drops you in the city square about 7 mins depending where you are located. One day we walked to the city, with a pit stop at a beach (both sides of the road) one side across from marina and the other open to the sea. We took the bus back to the hotel.
Our trip was right at the beginning of holiday season May 14-17 and the hotels in the area were just setting up. Both the GM Ziya and Restaurant manager Saffet were amazing and made our trip unforgettable. The food was great as we would have a great breakfast spread and then would usually have an appetizer meze for lunch with wine and beer. Very reasonable and very tasty. We had dinner one of the nights for a great fish dish that was also very good.
Both Ziya and Saffet were very helpful with suggesting other restaurants in the city, one of them being köşk which was amazing. Hot hummas dip and pepper steak very recommended.
We also set up paragliding with a breathtaking sail overlooking the town of Kas and the peninsula as well as the Greek Island of Meis.
The hotel was very clean and the pool was a nice option when we didnt feel like walking down to the private beach patio that the hotel has set up about 100 meters from the hotel. As the hotel is located up from the rocky seaside, they have built a very comfortable sitting/laying area with a little place to eat and drink.
All in all a very great experience and would recommend to any couple or families.
