“What a Gem!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The title says it all! We booked 4 days at The Escape after reading amazing reviews on Tripadvisor and we wasn't disappointed, down to the beautiful building, wonderful surroundings, amazing hosts and fellow guests. It is difficult to find enough words to describe The Escape, the rooms are beautiful and spotlessly clean, Susan's cooking and Chris's hospitality and attention to detail are second to none. We were lucky enough to be at the hotel with a great bunch of people who made The Escape experience even more pleasurable, 4 days just wasn't long enough and we left feeling we should have booked for longer. We plan to return to enjoy the experience more but also to see Susan and Chris the perfect hosts and new found friends.

“Returning Home! Same Place same friends same great Hotel/iers.”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We don't often go to the same place but for this place ... we made an exception. After visiting Turkey for the first time last year I fell in love. Whenever I visit abroad I usually am the fresh delicacy of the local flying nasties. As such look like a dot-to-dot on day one. Here no such monching creatures so I don't end up being bitten to hell. Some lovely lizards who are more scared of you than you ever could be of them.
The scenery is breathtaking and I watched the sunset every day for 2 weeks how often do we get a chance to do that in our busy lives? Watching the swallows coming in at night to dip in the pool still mesmerises me. One evening we were lucky enough to be joined by a large owl who sat on the balustrade watching the evenings proceedings take place.
The pool as ever was delightful and in great condition due to Chris's attention to it day and night. The food and drink are fabulous and changed regularly. Fresh home cooked food meant that we didn't need to go out and most of the time didn't want to.
Susan and Chris have a deep love for what they do and each other and it shows.. it's infectious. We had a romantic, private holiday surrounded by friends. Sounds a contradiction but by pure coincidence ended up staying at the same time as some of the guests we met last year. So whilst taking time to enjoy each others company and relax and unwind we both met and made friends. The company here is key. If you want to join in, you can but if a state of reverie if desired both are attainable. Being a 7 room hotel. Privacy and security are felt in equal measure to belonging and a feeling freedom.
Coming and goings pass by unnoticed as the days wind beautifully along.
Attention to detail is what makes a stay here seamless, effortless flowing service and at the same time uninterrupted relaxation and pampering.
Many an occasion we ventured out to only wish to be back at the hotel. We visited the nearby beach for 14 euros? it was much improved on last year but still we longed to be in the mountain by the pool. After taking a trip to the market in Fethiye, a must do, we still returned back earlier than we planned just because we wished to be at the hotel. Again calling it "home" many times by mistake. Yet it's no mistake it is a home for you to stay in. Hotel seems too clinical a word for the this place. Comforts of England without taking away from the foreign holiday feeling.
The Escape has it all. Views, Amenities, Bar, Pool, Great service, The fencing, Clean, atmosphere more... and more to come.
We did feel like the kids who've been off travelling the world only to come home for TLC, home cooked food, and a good ol' chat. Testament to the overall feeling of the place that 3 of the 7 rooms while we were there were 'returners'!
For somewhere that's not been open too long, you only have to look at the reviews to see why booking here you'll be on to a winner. I can't really embellish more on why I love this hotel I just do. Everything that others have said, it is.
Thanks Chris and Susan (& of course also to Fatmana)

“A Wonderful Holiday”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

people found this review helpful

The Escape is the nearest thing you will find to going to staying with friends in a wonderful villa and enjoying the finest hospitality. There are no fancy coffee machines - just a cafetiere, no need to lock your door (although you can), the ability to make a cup of tea whenever you fancy, your fridge stocked with whatever you want (rather than what the hotel wants) and a wonderful atmosphere of friendliness and a willingness to make your holiday what you want it to be. Susan is a great cook - and all the food at The Escape is fresh, simple and delicious. I'm trying to persuade her to publish a cook book - her way with sea bass is to die for! The place is immaculate - I had a lovely spacious room and wetroom - and comfortable. The pool is gorgeous and, again, immaculate. Susan and Chris are perfect hosts - they do all they can to make all their guests comfortable in every way. During my stay, there was a very social atmosphere. Because it's small and intimate, the guests all became very friendly and there was a lot of socialising together. Great for us - we were there with some lovely people - but you need to be willing to mingle! I'm sure I'll go back and one of the reasons would be to see Susan and Chris and enjoy their unique brand of hospitality.

“The ultimate escape!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My Partner and I, have just returned from 6 days in Gocek and it will be a week we will never forget.

We were looking to 'escape' from things and the brief for the holiday search was tranquil, exclusive, quiet and pampered. I am pleased to say that The Escape delivered on everyone.

Even before we arrived we were welcomed by email and advice helping us plan the pre checking information. Our flight didn't come in until the early morning but still S&C (Susan and Chris, the hoteliers) were there to welcome us, with a beautiful selection of Meze and a cold glass of wine.

Once settled in the experience continued to impressed, my partner and I love to eat out, however the pull of Susan's cooking saw us, stay in 4 nights and sample some of The Escapes finest cuisine (try the Sea Bass).

During our stay S&C couldn't be more helpful with arranging cars, trips and local advice, they really took every worry away from us.

We aren't normal ones for reviews, however when someone goes to the extent C&S do, to ensure their guests have a magical holiday, they deserve a pat on the back.

We will be booking a week every year for a very long time!

“A little piece of Heaven”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Just returned from an amazing 7 night break at The Escape. It is a fabulous place to chill out and I am reluctant to share how good it is in case too many people find it! We stayed in Turquoise room and it really was lovely as are all the rooms but I definitely enjoyed the extra space the superior rooms offered. Everything about this hotel is just as all reviews have said so there is very little I can add other than to thank Chris and Susan for a lovely week. We will return.

“Fantastic set up”

We arrived here late from Dalaman airport (around a 25 minute drive) having had to deal with lost luggage and arrived a little stressed to say the least. Thank god for Susan and Chris who then welcomed us into their wonderful retreat. Chris produced a welcome glass of beer and glass of wine, Susan managed to find a complete set of kit for my wife, thus enabling her to have an early morning swim in the glorious pool. We stayed in the turquoise room which was positioned just by the pool terrace. Extremely comfortable bed with good pillows and luxury linen. Extra bonus was being able to make fresh coffee and tea (fresh milk provided) in the room. Good bathroom. Breakfast was a treat: all freshly prepared with fruit, eggs, muesli, orange juice and coffee etc. Chris comes into his own here looking after all your needs with anything you need to know about the area and Susan then excels with her cuisine and warmth. Well worth having dinner as well, not only is the food excellent, but also the setting must be recommended. In fact the stay was so good that we booked an extra night here on our return, where yet again all was perfect and just confirmed my thoughts that they have got this place just right!!! A good pair of pillows and excellent coffee are bliss after spending a couple of weeks travelling around the area. Location is handy for the airport and Gocek, so useful for stopover, but you will want to stay longer. I am sure we will return as we love this part of the world.

“"I had a dream.....”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

….of sheer luxury"....and that is exactly what The Escape delivers. A stunning and unique Villa, in a beautiful and tranquil location. A stone’s throw from Gocek Marina and only 25 minutes drive from Dalaman airport. Exceptionally welcoming, Chris and Susan leave you wanting for nothing, always attentive; delivering exceptional food, service and company. We felt utterly spoilt with the perfection of the room and the completely peaceful, relaxing atmosphere they have created. A paradise that we both look forward to returning to.
