After reading all the amazing reviews on Trip Advisor I wondered if the hotel could possibly meet, or even exceed what I had read... it did.
We were picked up from the airport, even though our flight was an hour and a half late. The driver was fantastic, safe and clearly knew the roads very well. The car was lovely, air conned and modern.
The rooms are basic, clean and perfect. They are cleaned every morning and kept ship shape. We took two rooms, one at the front and one with a side balcony, both were ideal, and if you can get one with a balcony, the view at the front is lovely.
Breakfast was on the patio, and was delicious; fresh fruit, breads and home made jams and honey. It was a lovely chance to chat with other guests and the hosts and their team.
Whilst you are there you can either spend your time at the beautiful beach or the pool. We spent one day at the beach (about 10 mins away), using the hotels free taxi service to get there. It is stunning and has beautiful, clean water to swim in. You can also rent umbrellas and have lunch there. The ruins are also well worth a trip in their own right, we walked back one morning after Mustafa dropped us down there, and then had breakfast when we got back. The amphitheatre is brilliant. The other days we spent by the wonderful pool which is clean, and is the perfect place to spend a day or two! We also went on the boat trip which was FANTASTIC.... I would highly recommend it, the lunch was delicious and the tour was exceptional. Kalkan is a short distance away, and whilst it was nice to visit, we were much more taken with Patara.
Patara is small, but relaxed, calm and great to stroll around in the evening. If the hotel put on a BBQ whilst you are there, then make sure you attend as they are amazing. Tunahan, Gurkan and Mustafa are very attentive hosts who go out of their way to help and assist you. They provided us with a fantastic family holiday and I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone. (If you are thinking of staying in Kalkan, stay here instead!)
