“'One of the best holidays we've ever had'”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Where do I start!

I had never been to Turkey before Dalyan, on this holiday I came with with my parents and boyfriend (who all have visited Turkey before but have been to the rowdier Marmaris and Icmeler areas years earlier) in September 23rd 2013 to October 7th 2013.

Hotel Asur has 3 parts, The Hotel Asur, The Apartments Asur and the Vıllas- Asur and Mirna (named after the owners daughter). We stayed in the fabulous Villa Asur. None of us had been to a villa before and as our first I dont think another anywhere else could beat it!
The Asur Hotel\Apartments and Villas are about a 10 minute walk from the main shopping\restaurant street. The Asur group is family run and all the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, Mirna the owners daughter was excellent, along with the Thomas Cook rep Haysan. The family let their pet dogs Pasha and Ben roam around the complex, and as dog lovers my family and I were in our element.

The Villa Asur is less than a 2 minute walk from the hotel, it is surrounded by a 5ft brick wall and gates to enter (which are lockable for security) inside the grounds of the villa in the garden there are pomegranate trees, bushes, flowers and cactus plants, a 10m swimming pool with area to sunbathe with sun loungers and parasols and also a dining area with bbq.
The villa itself has 3 floors there are 4 double bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and remote controlled air-con in each room. The ground floor consists of the living room/kitchen/dining area, all open plan, with a small washroom with shower/toilet and washing machine also. The kitchen has all the necessary appliances including fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, oven and hob. The living room has 2 sofas one turning into a sofa bed for extra guests and a large TV with Turkish satellite channels not very many English (but you don’t need to watch tv on holiday really). There is an amazing spiral staircase leading to the first floor where there are 3 double bedrooms 2 of similar size with shower/toilet and one larger with a bath/toilet. On this level there is also a large balcony with dining area which you can get to from 2 of the rooms. Behind a lockable doorway on the 1st floor there is also a staircase leading to a 3rd floor/loft space containing a bedroom with 2 double beds, a kitchenette and 2 small balconies on separate sides with wonderful views of the mountains.
The villa was very luxurious and spacious and wonderful to be able to sunbathe and potter around in our own peace and tranquility- A home from home. Every morning there would be a gardener tidying and pruning the garden and maids every other day who were extremely friendly and efficient.
The Hotel Asur has a pier where you can go to, to sunbathe and watch the boats go by or go fishing (which we did). Some stray cats/kittens live in the grounds of the hotel and so most people catch the small fish for them to eat.

Dalyan itself is not a built up area and mainly consists of small hotels and villas both holiday rental and residential. The restaurants and shops are a short distance away (only 5-10 minute walk depending on how fast you walk). The different shops sell the fake mulberry and prada designer bags and purses for example and also the fake branded shoes such as All star Converse\Vans\Nike etc. There are also shops selling the local Turkish\Dalyan produce such as pottery, fabrics, candles, jewellery, delicious Turkish delight etc. There is a river that runs alongside the resort and all the way down the side of the shops and you can get on a boat here to take you to the many trips that Turkey offers.
There are simply too many brilliant restaurants to mention as they all pretty much served the most amazing food!!! Our favourites were, The Lime, Four Seasons, Medusa, Olive and The White house.

We went to the mini thermal and mud baths a short 25 minute boat journey away and this was as we expected. The thermal baths was just what we needed as the day we went was 4th October and was cloudier and cooler than previous days. This costed 90 Turkish lira (£30 each) for the private boat ride just my boyfriend and I using one of the 'Coop' boats an another 5 Turkish lira to enter (a couple of pound each!!!)

We also used the Asur Hotel's private boat one day to go to the turtle beach although sadly we didnt see any turtles) for a nice relaxing day sunbathing on the beach. You have to pay for 2 sunbeds with a parasol this was 9 Turkish lira altogether (£3 for the day).

We went from September- October 2013 therefore the season was nearly at its end and so was quieter than it would have been in earlier peak season months. Nonetheless there was still many tourists around and if anything it made the holiday a bit more relaxing and peaceful. Dalyan is full of stray dogs and cats and as long as you love these pets you should not be too bothered by them bothering you when you're wandering around. Some of them even chaperoned us some of the way back to our villa. Some dogs have tags on theirs ears and this means that these ones have had their injections from the Dalyan pet sanctuary, but I wouldn't be too alarmed by the ones that do not have these they are all pretty much placid.

Overall, this was one of the best holidays I/we have ever had and we endeavour to return not too far in the future (in fact my mother and father have already booked for next year but in the apartments as villa would be too big for 2 people). I would suggest that Dalyan is not for families with young children as there is not much for them to do. But for couples older and/or younger this place is wonderful and I recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxed and laid back holiday with amazing food and friendly locals!

Room Tip: Asur appartments if you want more space as the Hotel is smaller and not as much room to move around...

We have just returned from our week holiday at the Asur Hotel in Dalyan.
On arrival we checked in then taken to our room.
It had two twin beds and a put up bed for our son placed at the bottom of the other beds. We had to climb over the beds to get to the shower room/toilet.
After reading other reviews we knew that there would be lots of cats but they were everywhere especially at breakfast which was a little off putting.
On the plus side the house keepers were lovely and worked extremely hard.
The Asur is not suitable for families so think twice before booking if you have children.
There was also no entertainment of an evening and the tv in the room only had about 4 channels which were mainly news channels.

2nd stay at The Asur. Met some lovely people both local and guests. Roger "Taylor" Thompson and Curly Shirley,(sorry), must get a special mention for giving us some great holiday memories, and not forgetting FRIENDS,Karen and Pia! The hotel is so relaxing. The town offers restaurants and bars for all tastes, ate at a different place for two weeks and not one bad meal so too many to list. Thomas Cook rep Hussein was excellent, very friendly and had great knowledge of Dalyan. Kounos is worth a visit, tip,wear some comfortable walking shoes. Don't want to go on and repeat what everyone else has said so well done Dalyan and everyone associated with the Asur Hotel.

Having just returned after a week at the Hotel Asur, it is safe to say it was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The success of the hotel comes down to the staff, and you really sense a family vibe from them, as they go the extra mile to make sure you have the best stay possible, and that is why it is so great.

If you are after a beautiful hotel, within a peaceful/quiet location, then this is for you. The views surrounding the hotel give it that extra special touch as well. (The hotel is 100% for couples, or older groups only, as the hotel would lose its enjoyment if you had kids screaming and running around). We met so many other lovely couples, it was just a friendly atmosphere with everyone being pleasant to one another.
Other positives..
-Plenty of sun loungers for everyone
-Rooms cleaned everyday
-Wifi throughout the hotel
-Free air con in rooms
-BBQ night was very good and entertaining.
-Hussein (Thomas Cook rep) was ever so helpful and friendly
-Guaranteed good weather (apart from our first day when the resort was flooded)

If you stay at this hotel, make sure you watch the sunset on the jetty, you can grab some fantastic photos, and you can rely enjoy the views looking out.

My only negative would be the stray cats. If you are not a cat lover, you potentially wont want to stay here. When we were there, there was approximately 6 cats, and they are wandering around throughout the day throughout the hotel, and even jump up at you whilst you eat (either at breakfast or lunch by the pool). I am not a cat lover, and I disliked this along with many of the other guests. Apart from this, and the cockerel going off at 4am/5am/8am, and then throughout the day, the hotel is a gem. (So purchase ear plugs, and take headphones for the day time).

All the reviews on here speak the truth, I know you never know until you try, but I am so pleased we booked this hotel with Thomas Cook. I like to visit new places all the time, but I have no doubt in my mind that one day we will be returning to this hotel.

As for Dalyan itself, it is a safe/beautiful town. With so many excursions available, I would suggest going for 10 days to really make the most of it. Make sure you do the turkish bath experience, as well as the Jeep safari tour, and visit the market on saturdays to pick up some bargains (obviously barta, half the price they say). With only a 10 min walk, there are so many restaurants to choose from. Our favourite was Lime restaurant. You get great value for your money, the food is delicious and the service is superb.

I can't speak anymore highly for this hotel resort and surrounding areas. We just wished we went for longer. The hotel could easily double their prices, and remain busy throughout the 6 months - it is that good!

I want to thank the hotel staff for such a pleasant stay, and wonderful service. Enjoy the 6 months off, as I know for a fact you will have another busy 6 months as of May next year. Definitely the number one resort of Dalyan. 10/10.

(Small tip) - instead of paying for transfers with Thomas Cook - we just got a taxi each way. Thomas cook charged £75, and it took 45 mins each way. We got a taxi, took no more than 20 mins each way, and only cost us £50 overall. That £25 saved pays for a meal for 2!!

Recently returned from a another great stay at the asur .we were last there in 2011 so please we decided to go back just as good as the first time .There were some new faces amongst the staff all very polite and efficient and some familiar faces amongst the guests Special mention to Hussein the Thomas cook rep best rep ever .The five mile walk he arranges around Dalyan is really interesting he knows everything about the area. We are just about to book for next year we are thinking of maybe trying the apartments to compare them to the hotel

Had another great trip to Dalyan and the Asur. Weather was eventful with a storm in the middle of the fortnight that brought in some cooler temperatures. Loved the gardens and the pool. Rooms cleaned daily and room and pool towels were also changed on a daily basis. Had a great trip with local boatman Ramasin and also enjoyed the jeep safari organised by the best Thomas Cook rep, Hussein. Already booked for next year!!

Room Tip: Liked row 3 as not overlooked, but if I tell you which room you'll all want it!!
