Only stayed for 3 nights before boarding a gullet but really enjoyed the peaceful nature of this small resort. Initially we were a bit disappointed with the room as it was a bit dated and rather basic but we were quickly won over by the pool and the surrounding views.

The resort has a very relaxed atmosphere, with a lovely pool, and stunning river and mountain views. So it's perfect to just relaxed. It's also very close to Dalyan itself without having all the noise and masses of people. Breakfast is served around the pool and is very nice with plenty of choice. You can have dinner in the evening around the pool which we didn't do but it looked really inviting and worth a try.

Room Tip: get a room on the ground floor as they have a little terrace with a table and chairs outside.

Hmmm, what can I say. Lovely hotel by the river. Lovely to sit by and watch the day go by but did make it slightly noisey. Hotel its self was nice enough, however there didn't seem to be much atmosphere and life about the place. The staff were all very hard working and efficient, however, this made them inflexible and not very welcoming. There were a few staff that stood out, Ali round the pool, the chap that seemed to be in charge of the meals once engaged, was fun. The girl in the front desk had the best smile. The older chap in the reception was very unpleasant, not helpful and in my opinion rude to the point of not wanting to go back. Which is a shame as the hotel was clean, tidy and in a good spot. Not much fun about the place and the staff reflected this. Maybe that the age limit was slightly older, around 50-70 perhaps but oldies can still have fun and laugh!!

We were looking for 10 days away to just relax and take it easy...This was perfect. You can always fault some part of your stay, but we struggled to find any fault at all....Nice and quiet in the day and in the evening too -something you don't always get! Most people are in the 40-70 range and Amazon Kindles abound. Staff are extremely friendly without being over-familiar and the Hamam session was a joy. The centre of Dalyan is just a 15 minute walk. I've never stopped in a resort where we would definitely plan to return. Trust me - It is a good as the other reviews say.

Room Tip: Worth going for a suite as you get the extra space for little more money...Avoid the side where they are building an additional block. Block 3 looks over the gardens rather than the pool and is more secluded.

Chilled out at Dalyan Resort 
Great place, and is perfect if you want a quiet place to unwind. Could not really fault the place and stayed here for one week half board. Booked using Travel Republic and included transfers.

Could sit on the decking besides the river, or in the gardens, or by the pool. Or sit by the river for a drink before dinner which was perfect and watch the sun set. During the day we really liked a small decking area to the left by the river, really nice. To the far right is the place where the boat is tied up, called the harbour but is really a small pontoon. Nice gardens.

Mostly older couples but there were some younger ones. Some visitors from UK, Dutch, German. A lot of repeat visitors which speaks for itself.

We had a room above the ground floor level. This was good and had a spare single bed as you entered the room. Room was probably one of the best we have had for this type of holiday, everything worked! View over pool and gardens. It did not have a balcony but understand this was better than the ground floor, which was smaller / darker but this had the advantage of a small seating area outside. Understand there are some rooms which are suites, ie had a sitting room I believe.

Understand there is a market on
- in Dalyan on a Saturday, missed this as not aware until too late.
- on Monday there is a market two hours up the river which boats takes you from the Dalyan centre. We missed this as we were not aware.

Plus
Good breakfast inc omelette chef who was good.
Dinner, we eat at the hotel every night apart from twice (stayed for seven nights). Good variety and was wide variety of mains. Also there was a chef doing different things each night inc kebab meat.
Wine and beer price same/similar to that in town.
12-15 mins walk to town, there's sort of a short cut, which can be found easily, but is not a made up road. Or could take a taxi if really needed (but didn't have to)
Every other day free water taxi boat to beach, leaving at 1330. Nice addition.
Everything in the room worked and was clean, see other comment below.
Just across the water are some ruins which the pool guy, Ali, can row you across, which we tipped him.  This took about two hours to walk around.  Found out next door there is an old lady who does the rowing for 2TL per person.
Ali, the pool attendant was very helpful and conscientious, and if I had to single anyone out, he is the star player. I saw him do some nice things for people and nothing seemed too much trouble. Nice guy !
Other Staff good and worked hard. Always buzzing across and clearing tables, plates etc. When we arrived late for first night we missed the dinner seating but they prepared something for us which they did not need to.
Towels provided at pool, ask for towel card at reception.
Free wifi, there is a password.
Staff at front desk were efficient and helpful.

Minus
Maybe ok if you have a toddler but kids not catered for as could get bored. One main pool and a small shallow round pool. Probably conclude this hotel is not marketed to families (which is ok).
Bottled water was more expensive but affordable. You are supposed to not bring you own food and drink into the hotel.
No evening entertainment  but was ok as we wanted a quiet week. There is a bar near the pool and background music. Bar staff good but could be slow, but I guess there was no rush..
Pool not heated but once in was ok , just...
There is a fitness room and equipment was very old, only a minor critism as this is probably not a main feature or used much.
Maybe our room could have been tidied a bit better but not an issue as was very clean.
Some people had bought their own mugs as coffee cups were quite small.
Massage and spa treatment prices seemed excessively high. Did not do any of these!

In town things were good value
Burger 10TL
Beer 6-8 TL
Dinner for two with drinks 100TL or more if you had several drinks.
Exchange change rate 3.2

Had lunch at the hotel most days, and prices similar to in the town I believe.

Hotel also offered on B&B basis.

Building work going on next door, and understand the hotel is being enlarged and that part to cater more for families. Due to finish in six months. However during our stay no major noise issues apart from one time and heard some construction work.

Weather great at 27-29 deg C, apart from last day was a bit rainy, but had a late check out. Went into town for something to eat and walked back. Very chilled out last day rather that a hot one.

Definitely would come back for another relaxing break, and would consider this hotel and Dalyan again.

Thanks to hotel staff, and Ali for a great week.
