“Wonderful home from home, with amazing host, location and outstanding value”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Lindos Pension is quite simply a complete gem.

People go once ...and keep coming back ... year after year. Some people even get the Pension's owner manager's half jokey loyalty scheme ... come ten years and 11th is free.

The best recommendation that I can give is simply this ... would you go back to the same place ... well I have ... for nearly 10 years.

However many cities or continents I travel (3 continents so far this year) ...I always go to beautiful Dalyan and amazing Levant and family.

People who know me find this surprising ... it so cheap compared to my normal holidays .... but it is magical and feels like a real home ... and in all homes ... in the good times and the not so ... good ... the constant in your life of summer in Dalyan at Lindos is just wonderful.

What is so good about it ... well just a few reasons ... include ...

Dalyan is a real natures paradise
Property has it's own jetty
The atmosphere is lovely and welcoming
The home cooked food ... on special nights (at an every other evening on average) is fantastic
the value for money is great for families ... or anybody
You can walk to town ! and not need a car
Great nature / bike excursions exist via the owner himself (a lycra / fitness fanatic!)

Just wonderful. Actually magical.

Just had a great time for a week in Dalyan at a lovely place run by Levant and Pembe. From the breakfast overlooking the river and the hills to the home prepared evening meals it was very relaxing. Lots to do in the daytime for all ages - easy access to the local town or beach. Met lots of people who have returned time and again - one person making 16th visit - can easily see why.

Room Tip: Best thing was there are only 10 rooms so not lots of people wandering about

We come back time and time again. It's simple, clean and friendly, there are friendly terrapins and kingfishers to watch as you have breakfast on the waterfront, after you early morning dip in the river. If you want to go to the beach, you ask Levent or Pembe and they'll call a boat to pick you up from the pension.
this year Levent took us on a hike to Ekincik beach through the forest. He reckons its about 10km but I would swear it's nearer 18!
The bar is relaxed and friendly, though avoid the raki with pickled carrot juice. He did try to ward me!
Another highlight for me is the free use of his two kayaks, though the harbourmaster is disapproving, so this is limited to after 5pm.

Room Tip: We prefer the larger rooms on the East side, but there's not much in it - you don't stay at...

We have stayed here a couple of times with our children and have had a fantastic time. we have stayed in posher places, but would happily swap them for the freindly and relaxed atmosphere here. Situated on the river opposite the rock tombs, it is an ideal location and Levant is a wonderfull host. I thoroughly recomend a stay here.

Room Tip: We have only stayed in the family room, it was very cosy with a balcony and wonderfull veiws.

We have stayed a number of times at lindos pension and can highly recommend it. The location is perfect and the rooms are comfortable. The family that owns and runs the pension provide a wonderful service. Levent makes everyone welcome and can provide good advice and organises great tours including cycling trips. They have excellent mountain bikes for hire.

Lindos is a great place to stay and excellent value for money.

How many places do you stay in where the manager hands you cash to pay for your boat trip because you don't have enough on you - trusting you to pay it back that evening!

We loved this place. We are a family of 5 with three teenage kids and were staying for 3 nights before moving on. It was quiet yet with plenty to do (swim, paddle, read, sleep in the hammock with views of the Lycian tombs, play the guitar, go on any of the many boat trips) and close enough to the town to walk in within 5 minutes, get to the best restaurants and be part of the nightlife - if you wanted to.

Levant the manager was kind and very helpful - organising our transfer back to the airport, printing off our insurance policy, organising all our day trips (and the boat picking you up stops right on the jetty at the end of the garden!). Food was authentically Turkish, prepared by two lovely Turkish ladies (make sure you go for the home cooked dinner offered every other night - wonderful). In fact it was the best we had in Dalyan and in Turkey during our whole holiday - and we ate in some nice places. Afternoon tea is included in your B& B rate and is served around 5pm - a great bonus.

Rooms impeccably clean, air con worked well and wasn't noisy, garden beautiful - grapes and olives and lemons all around.

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: All good - no one better than another as far as we could see

The pension was lovely, set in a lovely location on the river. Swam off the decking straight into the river it was great. Views overlooking the tombs lit up in the evening, stunning. All in all a brilliant couple of days. Would recommend Levents pension to anyone and will return again I am sure of that.
