We stayed at the Linda Beach Hotel, not to be confused with the Linda Hotel, for 6 nights in August as part of a dive package. The hotel was a short walk from town, the dive center, and the harbor where our dive boat was parked.
LInda Hotel has a small, crystal clear pool that is about 5 feet deep, except for a small entrance, so it’s not good for children that don’t swim. The hotel was very well kept, inside and out.
The room we had was smallish but painted a cheerful buttery yellow and had clean white tile floors. We had a queen bed, small wardrobe with shelves, very small desk, and two night stands. It came equipped with an air conditioner (that only stayed on when we were in the room) and an LCD TV mounted on the wall. The small bathroom had a shower with plenty of hot water and was tastefully tiled. Occasionally we had to go on the hunt for amenities such as soap and toilet paper. Shampoo was never provided.
The TV was mostly Turkish with a few prime-time shows in English. We had a small balcony and could just see a little of the view; it overlooked a pedestrian street so it was quiet. Only a few of the rooms in the hotel have a good view of the Med. The hotel doesn’t have a lift and the marble stairs reflect noise throughout the hotel. You could hear loud guests coming and going.
The breakfast buffet was neatly presented and was the usual Turkish presnetation of bread, cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, boiled eggs, cereal, and raisins. Juice was extra.
The hotel is located across the street from several restaurants looking over the Med. There are also several terraces where you can use a lounge and umbrella for the day. I don’t think you have to pay, but you aren’t allowed to bring in your own food and drinks, so you will have to use the reasonably priced restaurant services. There is also a pebble beach below where the water is very clear and refreshing due to some freshwater springs.
The staff at the hotel was wonderful. When we needed a power strip, they let us borrow one of theirs. When we wanted some ice for our evening night cap, they ran to the kitchen and got it for us. There were always several members of the family around and they were friendly and attentive.
