I found this hotel via Trip Advisor, and I couldn't agree more with all the positive reviews. We stayed here for three nights/four days--not long enough! We had just come in from Istanbul and were feeling not-so-great because of the pollution, traffic, tourists, etc. We skipped Antalya and instead headed to Kas, and I am so happy we found this little gem because we needed the R&R desperately.
We had a sea view room which was very clean and had a lovely view. The beach across the hotel is actually some decks on the rocks by the seaside, and you aren't charged for the chairs if you order any drinks or food which is quite nice. You also have a freshwater shower there--double bonus not to have to deal with the sand or sea water stickiness!
Omer and his wife are possibly the most hospitable proprietors we have ever stayed with. Each day, they asked how we were doing, and Omer was especially eager to give us insider tips for restaurants, driving shortcuts, etc. One day, we decided very last minute to go and see the sunken city--we only mentioned this to Omer, and he was able to make one phone call and arrange a private boat for us, with the captain waiting for us immediately when we arrived a half-hour later. As we were on the private boat chatting with the captain and having some tea and spice cake he offered us, we couldn't help but think how grateful we were that Omer set this up--we didn't have to look up boat timetables, deal with a tourist-loaded boat, etc. He also recommended several ruins sites for us, and we were pleased with each place.
We are so sad to be back home and cannot stop thinking about Kas and the wonderful hospitality we had there. Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything!
