We are a family of four with two teenage daughters and have just spent a blissful two weeks at Sultan Palas. The rooms are simple (NB only one electric socket) but well laid out and spacious. The setting is so beautiful and peaceful- we loved going backwards and forwards to Dalyan by boat and thoroughly enjoyed early morning runs & bike rides (before it became too hot). The atmosphere at the hotel is friendly and relaxed and we really appreciated the friendliness of staff and little extras such as manicures & pedicures (for a good price) available in the evenings by arrangement. It was also lovely that we were not asked to vacate our rooms on the last day & had full use of all the facilities until our airport transfer at 7.30pm.
As a family of vegetarians, Turkish food suits us well; breakfasts here are basic while dinner was more varied. In general we very much enjoyed the soup and mezzes although main course and dessert were variable (this view seemed to be shared by other non veggie guests). Fresh orange juice is not served with breakfast but delicious freshly squeezed juice can be purchased for a reasonable price at any time of day.
We enjoyed the 12 island boat trip & the Koycegiz lake trip (except for the mud bath visit as it was noisy & very busy). Instead we would recommend walking to the smaller mud bath (10-15 mins walk) avoiding the busy times- i.e. before 11am & after 4.30pm- really good fun! We also enjoyed a wonderful individual Hamam experience (2 people at a time) at Mimi Beauty Home in Dalyan- a real pampering!
There are so many wonderful things about our holiday a Sultan Palas that I really hope we will be back. In terms of slight criticisms, however, there was a smell from the drains in our rooms at times; some of the food could have been better and after a week or so we did start to feel a bit cut off with the last boat returning from Dalyan at 7pm.
Overall, however, this was a wonderful holiday & the staff at Sultan Palas are lovely, friendly, hard working and helpful people. Thank you for making our holiday so special.
