Reviewed August 3, 2013

This is one of the poorest lit places I've stayed in. I needed a headlight to read. I had trouble shaving in the bathroom. The breakfast buffet is outdoors with food uncovered, so flies hover over it. On the first day the housekeeper didn't show up until 5 pm, while we were there. The place is under construction and they have a dog chained up outside by the pile of stone tiles so nobody steals them, and the dog starts to bark at dawn. In our unit the safe upstairs uses a key attached to the card you put in next to the entry door to get the lights to work. So, to use the safe you do it in the dark with your headlight. Otherwise, the room was new and clean and adequate. We didn't use the spa. The pool was nice though

By the way, I booked this hotel with Expedia, and they emailed me to submit a review. I submitted a similar one and they never published it. I emailed them and they sent me a link of their standards, all of which I met. My conclusion: they rejected it because I didn't give it a good review.Another hotel I booked with them and gave a great review to got published in a few days. I recommend you don't trust their reviews and rely on the honest ones on Trip Advisor.

Stayed with my partner for a week. Excellent location close to te town, and on the river. Well laid out pool area and good sized pool. Mostly couples or families with older teenage children staying when we were there (last week in July), which was good as it was mostly peaceful sunbathing round the pool. No facilities for young children so guessing that the are not aiming a te family market. Rooms were adequate, air con unit was modern and excellent. Had problem with drainage smell on day one but the hotel staff did something and it was okay after that. Excellent spa located in the basement, with a good sized indoor pool! Turkish npnassage and other treatments were good value, in very modern surroundings. Pool bar cocktails were poor - the batman needs to take cocktail making lessons. Breakfasts were disappointing; not much choice so we didn't bother going for them after a few days, as a on sequence we didn't try te restaurant; there are many other restaurants along the river, the first only 50 gds away - Prince of Kaunos, which turned Putto e the best in our view, so we ate there four times in all. I would recommend the BC Spa for adults, it's good value.

We stayed at the BC Spa Hotel for 3 nights in July. It was very good value in a lovely location. The room was clean and spacious, with a balcony. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was eaten beside the river. The location was beautiful but the breakfast, a little disappointing. The addition of some good coffee and fresh fruit would have been welcome. On the second day we did have some watermelon.
We enjoyed two lovely lunches in the hotel restaurant and would recommend the tuna salad with pomegranate dressing. The staff were courteous and helpful at all times.
This was a perfect place to spend a few days in Dalyan. The location was quiet but with only a short walk to the town.
Access to the Spa was also included in the room rate and this is a good bonus. On the recommendation of other guests my friend and I each paid TL60 for a Hamman which was an interesting experience!!!!!!! We were female and were given a Turkish bath by male staff!!!! Not for the faint-hearted!!!
A good hotel in a good location. A great start to our holiday.

It costs a little more, but it is worth it if you'd like a bit more quality. Professional and unobtrusive staff, beautiful buildings and one of the most wonderful spas you will experience. The rooms are spacious, we had a living room downstairs and a bathroom and bedroom upstairs with plenty of storage space. The balcony areas are prefect for reading or a late night drink.
A special mention for the masseuse, who did more for my back in three sessions than an entire programme of physiotherapy.

Room Tip: poolside rooms are not noisy and are very convenient.

Bc spa
Arrived mid July for 9 days b&b. First time in Turkey for my husband and I.
Our 18:30pm Thomas cook flight delayed 2 hours from manchester, not good for a night flight but more shopping time. Arrived BC Spa at 4am and thankfully check in quick n easy, one form to scribble out & passport photocopied. Escorted to our room in block 3. Had a pool view to front and building works to side. Room was very clean with 1 double and a single bed, just for the two of us so plenty big enough. Walk in shower with complementary toiletries, namely sink soap and small shower gel (which doesn't get re-filled -so don't rely on this alone (not that us ladies would!!)) Large wardrobe with wooden hangers and dressing table. Small fridge and free safe/aircon. You can't leave aircon on when your out as it's controlled by the room key fob & it can't be removed.
No tea/coffee making facilities in the room so would recommend taking travel kettle if your a tea junkie.. Small balcony with 2 chairs n table, chairs not v comfy, small & wooden, we later asked for chairs to be swapped to larger wooden chairs with cushions (which we noticed other rooms had) & this was done within a couple of hours. Would recommend taking citronella candle for balcony on an evening as you will get a few pesky visitors. I got a few bites, but may have been from ants which tend to be around - check the floor when your sat in the restaurants :-/ Lots of dogs and cats about too which wander aimlessly around and are looked after quite well.

Breakfast- adequate.
Tea/coffee/hot water (if u like to take your own herbal teas etc.,) Fresh orange was extra at 5TL.
Boiled eggs, toast/bread, jam, butter, melon, cucumber, toms, olives, cheeses, cold meat, sausage, cereals, yoghurt, preserves, chocolate spread - this sort of thing. My opinion - not really 5star, could benefit from fruit juices on tap and more fruit selection.
Guests staying h/b complained of lack of choice so b&b best option. Take breakfast at the shaded tables next to the river and watch for turtles & take in stunning mountain views.

Spa area, underground, was v nice, spotlessly clean, housed a swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna (out of action several days) all free for residents. Gym with several running machines, cross trainer & plenty of weights. Freshly juiced orange, pomegranite can be had while lounging for 5TL. Enjoyed a hamman & felt all was well in the world afterwards! for only 30TL a must. Although i would have preferred a lady masseuse, just my preference.
Other massages included are Aromatherapy 50TL, Swedish 60 TL, Deep tissue 60 TL & several others, quite popular with guests. No pedicure/manicure service, just the various massages. Lots of places in town offer these.

Poolside is lovely, lots of loungers, some of which are under a wooden overhang which shades u nicely from the midday sun. No having to drag parasols along here. Pool open from 8am. No separate kiddies pool. No lifeguard. No diving (not deep enough). As previous reviews note, music can be a bit out of place for such a spa hotel, would prefer 'chill out' music, not party/disco music. Lunch can be taken here but can't review as we didn't. Toilets and showers close by. Garden lounge area with hammocks and bean bags.

This place has a tranquil calmness about it, far enough away from the centre to be peaceful and close enough to visit the many restaurants & shops where there's plenty going off to suit all. No evening entertainment here apart from the tiny vocal frogs we thought were ducks!!

A Walk along the riverside (to your left with the hotel behind you) takes you passed the many restaurants all touting for your business, I find a quickened pace, no eye contact (or sunglasses) and sweet smile works as you hurry along. 5 mins and your in the centre where u can hire cars, push bikes or scooters at very reasonable rates from £10/day. Take your wits with you as traffic weaves in and out of the busy centre, could benefit from being pedestrianised in places. Nice square in centre with line of restaurants, ice cream parlour and wooden benches to sit and while away your holiday.

Money
Post office is a good place to change your cash, no passport needed and great aircon! Signposted PTT. From the centre. We got 2.9415 / £ on 15th July. Compared to 2.60 back home a few days prior. In general we worked prices out on 3TL/£ which is not far off. In our 9 days we spent around £500 on eating/drinking and some supermarket/market shopping, uncharacteristically cheap for Europe, possible because of the lira and not euro.

Ventures :-)
Many tour guides selling the various boat trips & land excursions. Can't comment on land excursions as didn't partake, but do the usual jeep safari trips etc., Lots of boats docked ready to whisk you off, either private, co-operative or public boats. Different prices so check a few before booking. We took the public boat to a local market (with unpronounceable name beginning with K) for just 20TL each return, pleasant trip (took about an hour). Departed 10.30 & returned 3pm. No party vibes/games/loud music going on, just what us 40 something's wanted- if your happy just to chillax and take in the amazing scenery, would recommend the public boat. Market 'K' was a great way to pass a few hours, mainly undercover from sun. We bought some yummy cherries and peaches, juicy & refreshing.
Lots of similar stalls, keep looking and spot the stall selling t-shirts 4/30TL, great value or even better value 4/£10 sterling. You can spend english money here, I think they prefer it. Check clothes/t-shirt sizes as XL more like L. Same market comes to Dalyan on a Saturday if your not keen on boats.

We took the public boat (look for signs on harbour for public boat) to the popular turtle beach, cost 10TL return. These leave frequently as and when the boats fill up (around 20 people) Takes around 40 mins or so to get to the beach and returns from beach end frequently as and when it fills up, last trip back is 7pm. Very busy beach which has a large shaded cafe area with snacks & drinks (reasonable prices), toilets and changing rooms. Also lots of sun beds and parasols (not sure of charge if any).
NB There are two ways to get to the turtle beach, either dolmus bus (not far from Bc spa) which takes you directly to the sanctuary at one end of the 5km beach or the boat which takes you to the other end of the beach. You can walk to the turtles which takes around 45 mins if you chose the boat option, which we did - very pleasant walk, beautiful & scenic with mountain backdrop, lovely breeze which calmed the suns heat. Turtle Sanctuary is Free to get in but donations gratefully received. Dolmus charges about 10TL & leaves frequently (around half hour intervals) back to Dalyan, or you can walk back to the boat, nice stroll and doesn't feel like exercise at all :-).

From the far end of the harbour in Dalyan you can take a rowing boat over the water to 'the other side'. If you stand here someone will come to take you across. Hubby ventured over one morning, it was powered by a lady half his size with Popeye muscles! 4TL(return) took about 2 mins. You may get asked for tips on your short trip over. From this side hyou can see the tombs clearer and walk up to them. Also a graveyard and a spattering of cafes. If you are intending to walk up you need sturdy shoes/trainers. Hubby spotted a funnel web spider's nest complete with spider and a skin freshly shed from a local snake (how psychic of me not to join him). Could spend a couple of hours on 'the other side', not much more.

Food
We dined out every night alternating with the top ten restaurants as named on trip adviser. Didn't have a bad meal. Special touches were complementary tea/coffee, dip starters & bread or indeed free cake :-) - check reviews under restaurants, lots of info here.
Our preference for lunch time snack was Dalyan Iz.. where we had a lovely salad and Freddy's chocolate biscuit cake (delicious). (Airport survival packs can be purchased here for 18TL - sandwich, muffin & fruit). There is also a small kiosk in the centre selling cheese/tomato sandwiches in cling film for 3TL and chunky apple pies for 3TL which would also be ideal for airport as heard its v expensive.
Evening meal perhaps not much in it but Four Seasons, in the centre, stands out for freshness and complementary starter & coffee. Prince of Caunos on the riverside, first restaurant you get to when walking along the river from hotel, very reasonable prices and lovely comfy chairs, you can easily spend a few hours here just chilling. Baileys coffee here is 7TL compared to around 12 in other restaurants and is lovely.

Drinks
Drinks in general, the ever popular local Efe beer served is generally between 5-7TL. This will be for the light beer, dark Efe is more expensive and not as readily sold but v nice if you like Guinness/stout. Restaurant prices are approx 6TL+ for wine, Cocktails from 10TL, Mohito 15TL. Nescafe up to 5 TL, Fresh orange/pomegranate/peach juices etc areound 5TL, just as a guide.
Supermarket cost for dark Efe is 4.95TL. Water is very cheap around 2TL for a 5 litre bottle, you will need plenty, easy to grab a bottle on way back to hotel.

Sure I've missed something but easy to go in and on when you start. All in all hubby & I thoroughly enjoyed our time at BC SPA, the location next to the river, cleanliness, friendliness of staff, relaxed atmosphere and spa facilities all combined to make our first visit to Turkey an enjoyable and relaxing one. Not for groups of kids, more for couples who like the relaxed pace of a holiday with the addition of spa to boot. Glad we chose the B&B option tho.
Enjoy :-)

Hadnt booked anywhere when i arrived in Dalyan, and was quoted £25 for some grotty looking place up the road, checked this place online and got a room for just over £15 a night extra, for a poolside room! Everything is clean and bright, and new looking. Staff friendly and helpful, spa area looked great and good value, but sadly sunburn ommitted me from trying. Nice location next to the river, and back exit to bars/restaurants. Downside would be choice of music by the pool, and breakfast. Unattended service meant milk and water left to get warm and no juice of any description.

Room Tip: Go for a poolside room.

I wanted a decent Turkish Bath for myself and family. BC Spa was suggested and we were very pleased with what we found. The Spa facilities looked great as we walked in and we were greeted warmly. We were quoted 30 TL (about £10) each which is about right. However, we then found this also includes used of the Sauna, Steam Room, showers, mineral pool, jacuzzi and you could relax with a drink if you wanted! We went in the Sauna, Steam room, pool and jacuzzi before each having an excellent Turkish bath, amongst the best I've had although maybe a little quicker than others? We didn't stay at the hotel but the facilities looked good and the location on the river was lovely. I would give the Spa 5/5 and would love to try the hotel! Well worth a visit.
