“What a wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

We had two nights here while visiting Ephesus. That was an experience in itself but this came at the end of a long vacation and we still had to transfer back to Istanbul, then Amsterdam and finally home to Memphis. This place calls itself a Boutique Hotel I suppose because it is small but I cannot imagine wanting anything more. The time we were there the weather was perfect and the view of the Aegean was more than beautiful. It was quiet and relaxing. We were able to walk to town to many restaurants and shopping but it was so, so, so very nice to sit on the balcony and read with the breeze blowing in. I would go back just to sit and read but heck Ephesus is ten minutes away and the Arcadian Way where Anthony and Cleopatra walked. What history, what a trip!

Room Tip: Be sure to get a suite facing the Aegean.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Lavista while visiting Ephesus and the surrounding area & were very happy with our stay. Our room was very spacious and we had a terrific view of the Aegean Sea from our balcony. The service was excellent. We ate at the hotel restaurant the first night (no complaints), but for the next two nights we took the short 15 minute walk into Kusadasi - a stay here isn't complete without enjoying some of the fresh seafood! If I was ever to return to this area, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We spent one night at the Lavista and were very pleased. It has a wonderful view of the Aegean. Although it was walking distance to the Kusadasi harbor (with all of the cruise ships and tourist area), it was a quiet oasis. The room was clean and comfortable. We also found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.

Fantastic view, friendly attentive reception staff, large spacious, clean rooms with small balcony with views over the Agean sea. Turkish buffet breakfast with a beautiful endless pool overlooking sea only matched by the sunsets. Nice downhill walk into the town centre and a great bus service if you didn't want to walk back uphill!

For our base for a tour of Ephesus, we found a relatively new hotel called LaVista Hotel, http://www.lavistahotel.net/index_en.html.
It was within walking distance of the tourist area in Kusadasi. It sits on a cliff above a pretty cove. It does not have direct beach access, but apparently there is a spot to swim in the ocean nearby.
It has a lovely pool and all rooms have ocean views. The rooms were clean and spacious but of an odd decor--our room was all pink and flowers, not what one expects from an oceanside hotel.
The food in the restaurant was actually quite good--excellent seafood. The breakfast was tasty, but certain beverages were extra--cappucinos and espressos and juices. The regular coffee was awful.
My only real complaint was the service. The staff do not speak English well so we had some trouble communicating with the servers at the pool and restaurant. Also, we arrived there after a long day of travel. As we were checking in, I asked the woman checking me in for a glass of water. She declined and told me that I had to get water from my mini bar in my room at $3.50 US after we completed check-in (which took 30 minutes). We were taking two rooms for two nights and they could not give me a drink of water! I would have complained but she was the manager on duty. I thought that the hotel could use some training in customer service! Also, the water at the restaurant is less expensive than the minibar. Better yet, walk into town and buy water and beverages for the fridge in the room.

Room Tip: Suites were quite spacious. I would also get a room on a high floor for sweeping views.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Though the room was clean, bathroom is spacious and view from the balcony is very nice, service and charges remain a thing of concern. They don't provide even a small bottle of water in the room and a bottle is charged at TL 5. Breakfast is same all days and spread is also very very minimal. With no variety in fruits and cereals (only corn flakes). Don't dine over there. Prices are rocket high and quantity is too less. They charge for Kuvar(bread) even if you do not order it in restaurant. I had a fight over this and when I threatened to comment on Tripadvisor then and there, they offered me free bottles of water and removed Kuvar (bread) charges from my bill. Staff in the restaurant have lots of attitude, though at reception are better.

Room Tip: All their are room are sea facing so select any one. Rooms in 2nd building have a view of Swimming p...

Stayed for 3 nights, a beautiful, well decorated hotel with a magnificent view and well-appointed large rooms.

However, whilst breakfast is quite good, do not eat lunch/dinner at the restaurant. Poor quality food, particularly for the high (for Turkey) price.
