We spent two weeks at this most delightful boutique hotel. At first I was worried that the resort of Gocek would not have enough to keep us occupied but how wrong I was I could have stayed and never returned. I have travelled quite extensively for business and pleasure staying in very nice hotels and I can honestly say this was one of my most favourite hotels. Firstly I think this was due to the family that own the hotel they made us feel like we were part of their family they are so welcoming and can't do enough for you - they go out of their way to make sure that you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. We were lucky enough to stay in one of the suite rooms which was kept spotless each day by the cleaning staff we had a lounge area with a balcony a separate bedroom and a bathroom. All rooms have a fridge which is stocked with drinks and snacks that you can purchase and the bathroom has a hairdryer provided. The rooms also have a television and air conditioning. The hotel has a total of 10 rooms. Breakfast is provided and is served on the terrace by the swimming pool. The breakfast is lovely typically Turkish but with home made jams and produce from their garden. Tea & Coffee is also provided and you are able to purchase fresh orange juice for 6tL Meals are available at lunchtimes and in the evening, you just need to speak to the staff and discuss choices. There is also a bar area to enjoy a nice drink and relax after a hard day sunbathing/sightseeing. The swimming pool is lovely and very comfy sun loungers are provided for the guests with umbrellas for shade if required. The gardens are beautifully kept by the owners and make the whole property feel very tranquil. I won't deny that there is a small amount of traffic noise from the main road but overall it is not too bad. Parking is on the road in front of the hotel - the hotel is situated in a residential area and is approx. a 10-15 minute very easy walk to the town. Bikes are available and as the roads are flat make a very easy 5 minute ride into the centre.
We went on a boat trip which was organised by the hotel round the 12 islands which was a lovely day out and lunch provided with various swimming stops all for 50TL. We also hired a car organised by the hotel for sightseeing trip to Kalkan and Kas which are about a 2-2.5 hour journey. We caught the local dolmus (aided by the staff at the hotel) to Fethiye (approx. 30 mins) and then onto Olu Deniz (approx. 20 mins) very easy journeys.
Gocek is a lovely small town with lots of good restaurants that cater for the large amount of yachting crowds they attract there is a large harbour with fantastic yachts and it is nice to walk down the promenade and admire them. There a number of shops and supermarkets as well as banks and a weekly small market on a Sunday. There are no beaches as such apart from the D Resort which has a sandy beach and you are able to rent sunbeds on a weekday for 60tl each or the weekend 100tl each. You can get a local boat from the harbour which takes you to Gocek island where they have a pebbly beach with sunbeds to rent and a café for drinks and food. There is also a boat to a private beach club where again you can rent sunbeds and they have a restaurant.
I would recommend Gocek for a nice relaxing place with good food and lovely atmosphere.
I can't wait to return to Gocek and to the wonderful hotel I miss my friends as I now think of them and wish I was still there enjoying the hospitality!!!
