“Pleasant staff and lovely surroundings at the Golden Dolphin”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Our party stayed here for only 3 nights. Our check-in was very well organised by a beautiful receptionist lady with a wonderful attitude and welcome. Our rooms looked out over the entrance to the hotel and over the top of what looked to be an inflatable space below....we never found out what it was. The room was basic but nice enough. The bathroom was in need of a thorough clean although it was not filthy. There was plenty of hot water and fresh towels. Guests at the hotel were mainly Turkish people although there were few Dutch and German people also. The breakfast was delicious and very enjoyable. However, dinner time was not as good.The staff around the lobby and balcony serveries are very professional and friendly without being too much so. The walks around the complex are lovely. We would have lunch at the beach hut where the food was prepared fresh to order. A pianist would perform in the lobby of an early evening which was very pleasant.This is a nice hotel and I am sure that it was once one of the finest hotels for miles around as the views of it's private marina are amazing. However, it perhaps needs a rub-up and bringing up to date. We would definitely stay here again.Thank you Golden Dolphin.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the sea.

Excellent Hotel, but a little overrated. Too generic of a hotel, the food was a not very exciting, too boring, and not that tasty, both breakfast and dinner. The location was very good and so were the staff and the grounds.

I had the chance to attend a conference in this hotel, and for this purpose it is great. The hotel has meeting rooms of all sizes and they are very comfortable for this purpose. In addition, accommodation and food were decent but not great. The location is amazing, though, and the price for the event was very good.

However, I warn organizers and attendants of these kind of events of any dealings with ARKAS TRAVEL and or Ms Senay Alplaslan, who were in charge of the operative issues of the event. This company/woman managed to con me into paying more than USD 300 above the rates published for this event in the web pages. I contacted them by mail and they just cook an invoice to make the price look official. Shame on this people.

Room Tip: Room with a sea view are great, but seem to be given only to tourists, not to attendants to conferen...

the reason that I go in this hotel is the thermalwater and the treatments I can have there.
The price they offer that, it is OK.
The breakfast ist very good. I agree to the outher passenger, the dinner is not the best. There they have to do more, offer different food. Not every night the same.
Many time we go to Cesme in different restaurant
My room was allways clean, the beds are new and very good and I never have had trouble with the staff.
Every year when I am there I can see something will bee new.
In this moment my sister is there for 12 times. She go there 2 times a year.

Room Tip: I allways chose garden side on 3th floor

Not a particularly restful experience due to consistent conferences emanating an atmosphere of hustle and bustle, and an impersonal feeling.
Food was average and as diners who eat late the selection was sometimes very poor. Breakfasts were alright but not very exciting albeit there was a selection of about 50 different breads.
Staff were very disinterested at the restaurant and were far more interested in their personal mobiles - in effect we didn't know what half of them were actually doing apart from walking from the outside area to the interior restaurant.
We stayed in September and most of the facilities were closed apart from the spa which was adequate but quite clinical. Not a hotel we would go back to again.

Room Tip: Mmm not sure.....our room was above the restaurant so maybe request a room that is NOT above the res...

My wife and I stayed at Altin Yunus for a day and night in mid August 2012 on our way to the Greek island of Kios. I had been to the hotel many times before in the period 1998 - 2001. Unfortunately much had not changed at the hotel since that time and there are many newer alternative hotels in the area such as the Sheraton and many new boutique hotels in nearby Alacati. Altin Yunus has a beautiful site with a great beach on one side and a marina on the other and the views are absolutely spectacular on either side but the hotel needs updating even though it is immaculately clean and well-managed. The breakfast buffet which was included in our room price was truly spectacular. We ate dinner off premises in a village fishing town called Dalyan about 10 minutes from the hotel. We highly recommend this spot for lunch or dinner. Most every restaurant in this village has high ratings from evrybody we asked at the hotel. I would not purchase the all-inclusive package at Altin....it's better to get outside the hotel for dinner and not worth paying the all inclusive rates. Overall, we had a pleasant experience for a full day and night but we would not want to spend more than 2-3 days at this property. The hotel has great security and is very well protected from the public but it has seen better days.......and not a 4 or 5 star hotel anymore. Too bad, given the pristine location.

Room Tip: The balcony rooms overlooking the marina are excellent and the sunrises are worth getting up early f...
