I have been going to Villa Tamara since 2002. For the past five years I had different destinations and last week I travelled there once more and I have seen yet again that here is heaven on earth. Tamara is located in the Kas Peninsula facing the amazing little island Kastellorizo. It has two buildings: one is more traditional the other is modern. The traditional one has a massive palm tree in its courtyard and lovely sepia colored stones and bougainvillas take your worries the moment you step into hotel. Rooms have different color schemes and they are spacious overlooking to Kastellorizo"s back side. On the balcony at nights you just see the constellations and the sea and the island, there is nothing to distract you during day or night. The sea water pool is great to lounge in the afternoons and the sea side deck is the most hip and cool one is Kas with massive sun beds and a very friendly and quick service. The chef makes amazing fresh mediterranean cuisine all day long. The manager Mesut, who became one of my closest friends over the years is the kindest and welcoming manager you can ever see. He helps you through all your questions and makes your holiday a smooth and fuss free one. This is a hotel that is remote from Kas and which makes it so special, it gives you inspiration to work. it"s atmosphere is so romantic and its locations makes it adventurous to enjoy with your friends. Best times to visit between June and October. I can"t wait to return although I was swimming in its turquise colored sea just a day ago!

Room Tip: Ask for the Blue Room or if you are on honeymoon for the honeymoon suites!

Staff were all very friendly, I nearly cried when I left. I'm ashamed to say that I never fancied Turkey for a holiday, but this trip changed my ideas, and i will be going back. Hotel has stunning views. May not be suitable for small children as there are terraces down to the sea front, no beach but you can dive off the decking or crawl in over the stones. Was too hot for me, would go back in September. We had room with partial sea view, if you can afford it go for the full sea view. Never felt so relaxed. Food and drinks were delicious.

We found that we left our worries on the plane as our 10 day stay was very relaxing and peaceful. The hotel is quiet, having a fairly remote location, even though it is only minutes by car to Kas. The traditionally styled stone building is on many different levels with a light well over a court yard where a tall palm is the focal point. Down a flight of stairs is an open air lounge and pool/bar/restaurant terrace before walking down more steps through the garden to the sea, where the scattered islands are deceptively close. The small Greek Island opposite can be visited by boat from Kas harbour.
Villa Hotel Tamara is located on the southern side of what local residents call the peninsular. Using the hotel shuttle service to town at set times or a dolmus flagged down at the top of the hill, will make a quick lunch time shopping trip into Kas or a dinner in one of the town's restaurants in the evening very easy.

Mesut, the manager, is very welcoming and puts every effort into ensuring the guest's needs are met. He will even drive the lazy ones to the top of the hill to catch the dolmus if they miss the hotel shuttle. The hill is steep and a test in hot weather.

Rooms spacious, food very good, breakfast relaxed and so good over eating is very possible, service with a smile, fresh juice, bread, fruit, cheese, and eggs!

Relaxing by the sea pool is perfect and I can't describe the new bathing deck with access to the most refreshing clear deep sea!

It would be great to keep Villa Hotel Tamara a secret, but the hotel deserves to be successful. We can't wait to return.

Room Tip: NB: As with many buildings on a hill there are MANY steps between bedroom, bar, pool and sea. If anyone reading this has mobility problems where steps are concerned, make sure you ask for a room on the lower level which reduces some of the steps.

Villa Tamara is the perfect destination for a private but pampered holiday. We were there on a group tour but still we received that same treatment. A huge, gorgeous room with balcony and sea views to the Greek Islands, it was well maintained and provided all extras... soaps etc, mini bar, safe. The cliff top bar and restaurant were excellent and the management went to extra trouble to please us as a group at dinner each night.
The salt water pool was perfect, but you must swin in the Meditteranean off the cliffs below the hotel. You will never forget that!
All that was wonderful but the best feature of the Villa Tamara was the friendly, courteous and exceptional service provided by all the staff. The mini bus ran us up the hill, our luggage was carried to the coach - nothing was too much trouble and all done with a genuine & personal smile.
We loved the place!
The one negative for some people could be its isolated location. That makes for the wonderful in-house experience but does probably make it difficult to get to the town of Kas & the attractions of the area.
