Have just returned from our second stay at the hotel this year.Firstly we would like to thank all of the amazing staff who ensured we had an excellent stay at The Dalyan Resort.Our friend Ali the pool boy who always goes above and beyond to help the guests we will miss so much.Captain boatman and chief gardener another asset to the team and of course Eric and Dothan the barman who are like a comedy duo.The hotel is welcoming the grounds are stunning we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday the second there this year.Cannot wait to return next year to this little piece of heaven.
Thankyou all so much,the guy on reception who always wears black cannot remember his name, is so helpful and nothing is ever a problem to him always greeted us with a beautiful smile,lovely man. Wouldn't change a thing.Met some amazing people from all over the UK.
Thank you all again for making our stay a memorable one would highly recommend if you are wanting an amazing relaxing holiday.

I’ve just come to the end of a thoroughly restful week at this hotel. It was my first time in Dalyan but most of my fellow guests seemed to be repeat visitors to the town and to the hotel - this tells its own story.
Essentially there are two parts to this hotel each with its own pool. One part is designated for adults only. The atmosphere around the pool is peaceful and perfect for reading & sun bathing. The other pool area is more lively and includes the bar. Breakfast and dinner are served around this pool.
The food is of a high standard and there’s enough variety for dining in not to become boring. I would recommend being there at the start time of the buffet, however, as later arrivers sometimes seemed to struggle to find tables particularly if they were in larger parties.
The town is about 15 minutes away on foot. You can also visit by water taxi - the river runs behind the hotel. There’s a short noisy section of the main street but the rest is low key and largely pleasant.
I didn’t use what looked like extensive spa facilities but I did use the gym which is much better equipped than most hotel gyms, and is free.
All of the staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. The very favourable exchange rate meant that the final bar bill at checkout was the right kind of shock.
I would recommend this hotel for those who wish to be disgracefully idle and thoroughly relaxed.

We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Daylan resort hotel. The hotel is In a great spot on the river, and still near enough to the town. The staff were really helpful .
The rooms were fab and really clean, we enjoyed the traditional Turkish food and will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We emailed before and asked for a river view. Which we did get it was so nice and quiet .

Myself and my husband booked this as a last minute holiday
We have been to Turkey 3 times previously and got married there 2 years ago,having never visited Daylan we didn’t know what to expect

WOW !!

On arrival to Dalaman airport we were advised by Jet 2 we had a private transfer (nothing we had booked) but as Daylan is only 20 mins away they put on a taxi just for us as no extra cost

We arrived at the hotel around midnight
The reception night staff so lovely, helpful and informative
He advised us our room had been upgraded to a superior room with French balcony
We were shown to our room

The rooms are spacious, clean and equipped with everything (including a fully stocked fridge) EXCEPT tea/coffee/kettle facilities (the only slight down point)

Our room overlooked the pool and in the distance tombs in the cliff face could be seen

The hotel and pool areas are so beautiful and kept looking clean and lovely
Sunbeds are plentiful, always beds available
Around the pools, on the decked areas next to the river and in the gardens
There are several swing chairs very relaxing

Ali is an absolute star, he works so hard to make sure you have fresh towels and parasols and the pool area is just so

Meal are served around the pool area a beautiful setting
Breakfast 8-10
Dinner 730-930
Always plenty of choice

Breakfast is very Turkish, fresh pancakes and omelettes cooked in front of you, a selection of Turkish breads, cheese and hams, plus yoghurt, cereal and fruits
Something for everyone

Dinner again lovely
Meze/salad/soup starters (yoghurt soup my favourite)
Mains a choice of Turkish cuisine -all so tasty and flavoursome
And my favourite the dessert station
The dessert chef will make personal recommendations,all incredibly yummy

There is a bar area, service can be slow
But that is just the way it is
So chilled and relaxed

After dinner there isn’t really anywhere to go (unless you walk into town) there is a large room with sofas and a tele but it’s not used
I think the hotel could utilise this and provide an area for guests to go after dinner and play cards/chat and mix with other guests

The whole team at the Daylan resort are so lovely, helpful and really go out of their way to make your holiday as special as possible
From the cleaners to the owners of the hotel, who took the time to help us with a problem we had with our safe and to even chat during our stay

It is very much a family run hotel
With their own dog (Blexi) who stole my husbands heart

Ercan (Erik) comes round daily to check everything is ok and can arrange trips etc for you
He is super friendly

There is a fully equipped gym and spa area
The gym doesn’t open until 830, had it of opened before breakfast we would have used it more

Daylan centre is only around a ten min walk from hotel where you will find shops, supermarkets and an abundance of restaurants
It is so cheap!!!
Bottles of water around 12p for 1.5 litres
Cocktails around £2-3
Chicken kebabs £1.80!!!!! And nothing like you get back in the uk

We will without doubt return
Thank you to all the staff who looked after us so well they are an absolute credit to such a lovely hotel

Just got back from a week here with my 13 yr old and 9 yr old daughters. This was my first visit to Turkey and Dalyan was highly recommended by an English friend who lived there for 10 years. Dalyan is absolutely beautiful on the river. I could not fault this hotel one bit, location breathtaking, gardens lovely and on the river, facilities and rooms immaculate, staff couldn't be more friendly or helpful. This hotel caters for all from young children to the elderly - there is an adult area with quiet pool and apartments and a more lively family/children's pool area with bar/dining and separate family suite apartments. Felt like home and when we left all the staff came to wish us goodbye ! I will return and would stay here again without doubt.

Room Tip: family suites have a well stocked fridge with drinks and snacks !
