“Back again”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We came back for a second visit, this time just myself and my daughter. Yet again a wonderful relaxing stay, the rooms clean and cool with essential AC. Wifi to stay in touch with the outside world that did seem a world away. The pace is relaxed but always friendly in the village, and we came away refreshed and rested. The team at the hotel were, as always, friendly but not pushy, and always helpful. Kalkan is a short cab ride (50tl from the hotel) or 6tl on the dolmus if you need a change of scene. The boat trip organised by the hotel was,as before, one of the best days of our holiday... In fact we went twice! A whole day swimming off the boat, amongst shoals of fish, passing the sunken ruins of Kekova, barbecue on the boat for lunch, ice cream in the village of Siminea (or climb the hill to view the fort, hot but worth doing once!) all for 70tl!
Thank you to all at the Delfin, I hope we'll be back again!

You feel turkish hospitality and warm welcome at your first steps in the hotel.This is a family operated hotel.Breakfast is served with fresh fruits on terrace garden in front of the hotel.The staff are very kind and helpful.Mustafa and his family(his sons Tunahan and Gokhan) are so polite and friendly.This hotel with its regular guests likes a big international family.Hotel guests meets at 5 o'clock tea and cake time everyday.We also remember St.nicholas restaurant in walking distance operated with Mustafa and his family.You can eat delicious and perfect meals at this hotel.Hotel owners also organise barbecue nights beside the pool of the hotel.After staying at this hotel you will be an aficionado of this hotel like me.We had stayed at this hotel with our 5,5 years old son for 11 nights.We had a good time and perfect rest at this hotel.I think Patara beach with its nature and historical backgrounds is unique in the world.You should see ancient lighthouse,lycian assembly building of patara.You should also taste gombe ice-cream at gombe plateau.The god of Apollon was born in Patara.Apollon stayed at delfi,greece for 6 months in summers,stayed at Patara for 6 months in winters because of sunny days of Lycia.Ancient greeks spoke about this region as lycia,but the original name of this region is lukka lands.The people lived in lukka lands were anatolian not greek.St.nicholas also was born in Patara.This whole information makes Patara one of the most important places in the world.Be ready having a good rest in historical and natural beauty.

Select music to go along with this review - try this - go to You tube input 'The Ronettes' and chose 'Paradise' ........... We have been visiting Patara since early days of tourism - Mustapha and his family have always understood how to make a holiday a meaningful experience - just read between the lines of all the reviews - see all the international friends you make over tea and cake, at the pool, over dinner at the St Nicholas, walking to the beach - remember to exchange addresses - just when you think they have forgotten you an email will arrive out of the blue reminding you of all those enjoyable experiences in Patara ..............only disappointment is realising that this special treatment is in fact for all guests! Paradise..............yes! We will return...........!

Room Tip: Place yourself in the hands of the Coret family

The young staff are very kind and it was a very pleasant experience. The pool is the best in town and also are the views. All up a clean hotel and better than other choices we saw in area.
The viewpoint hotel which is shown in lonely planet as the best choice isn't a patch on this stay and now I will be going only off ratings made by actual people on websites like this one.

I travel many times in the district but always return to Patara, dawn and sunset is unbelievable.
The Hotel is an extension of the family enterprise in bringing good quality service and facilities to a very quaint and historical location, close to one of the best beaches and superb swimming in the area.
The hotel is staffed by the family sons and cousins all assisting in providing multi lingual service with a wonderful smile and efficiency
Clean and excellent A.C. The breakfasts are a treat early till late in the morning tho the best time is early to enjoy the cool dawn light.
Car parking is provided close to the entrance and easy access to the pool and bar area.

Room Tip: First floor rooms have a great view

This is a great place where you can enjoy peace and quite and excellent service from Mustafa and his team (his son Tunahan and others). Rooms are relatively spacious and light with working AC. Breakfast is a good spread and tasty start to the day on the patio, under fig and olive trees. There is a free shuttle to the beach which is recommended, especially in summer when 2 kms in 38'C could be very tiresome. Rooms all have balconies with clothes lines, but double rooms have showers that are not separated from the rest of the bathroom, making for wet bathrooms after showers. Triple rooms do have showers separated by glass partition. All in all, an excellent place away from home with unbeatable service, friendliness, cleanliness and value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms are all very nice and relatively quiet. Rooms away from the street side are slightly quieter...

The Delfin Hotel is one of my favourite places on earth. I keep coming back to it and the wonderful people that run it. I can highly recommand it for it's service (including free afternoon snack at the pool, shuttle to the beach, great breakfast and help with whatever is needed). In addition the linked restaurant serves amazing food. Patara is a great place for relaxing, but if you need action you can also book a tour through the hotel (canoeing, horse riding, city trips, or hammam if you prefer something more quiet). The hotel itself is like an oasis - wonderfully kept by Mustafa and his family. I highly recommand it to stay here.

Room Tip: Try to get a room towards the street with a balcony. You will have a great view over the pool and th...
