Asena Motel
Ranked #44 of 64 Hotels in Dalyan
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Just returned from Dalyan after spending 2 weeks at the Asena, we had 8 rooms for family & friends. Cannot fault anything, Volkan & Seb are perfect hosts. Sednam did a fish BBQ for us all which was amazing. The rooms are clean, the pool is spotless (no chlorine used)
The bar around the tree is a fabulous attraction, now known amongst my friends as "The Hub" a great meeting place, which can go on till the early hours!
I have already booked 11 rooms for next September, even though i willl be back a few times before then.
A big thank to Volkan & Sebnam, and the rest of the crew for for making our stay a fantastic memory. See you all soon.

Hi Yvonne;

Once again thank you so much for your great comment. Since the first day we have taken over the management of Asena you have been a great friend and help with all your comments and advises. We always appreciate your comments and try to keep up to them best in our abilities. Also having your family and friends here was great and we felt like we were surrounded by our own family and friends. We look forward to next September to re-unite. We miss you here and wish that we will see you soon at new year's eve.

Love always,
Sebnem & Volkan

The tan may be fading fast but our memories of the Asena will last forever!
This is a lovely little hotel but the reason the Asena really stands out from the competition is the devotion and dedication of the wonderful staff there. Volkan & Sebnem and their team really do make guests feel like they're all part of one big family.
From the moment we stepped out of the car we were made to feel like VIPs, with a warm welcome on arrival followed by a much needed drink in the relaxing Enjoy Bar. And this special treatment continued throughout our two week holiday. It's rare to experience such excellent customer service, where you genuinely feel that nothing you could ask for would be too much trouble. And the best bit? All the staff always have a smile on their faces and seem genuinely happy to help.
Add to that the lovely pool, Sebnem's amazing cooking and her fabulous cocktails, Volkan's day trips, and Casper the beautiful hotel dog, and I can't think of a better place to stay!
We have always vowed never to return to any holiday destinations, but for this one we will definitely be making an exception!

Our Dear Friends Vicky and Stephen;

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. You are absolutely right, we did feel like you were apart of our family from the moment you walked in to Asena. It was actually you who treated us VIP by being great friends and with all your understanding on busy days when we were running around. We couldn't thank you enough for all your friendship. And now even though you would plan to go explore some other part of the world next summer the possibility to see you again makes us very happy. We really hope that we get to see you next summer.

We will be in touch and even if not this summer we will always look forward to seeing you here at Asena.

With our most sincere best wishes,
Sebnem & Volkan

Stayed and Asena many times (don't change the name to Enjoy. Not Turkish and comes across as low quality). The motel is basic but very clean and comfortable. The welcome from Volkan and Sebnem (and all the staff) was both sincere and genuine and their "care" carried on throughout our extended stay. The recent improvements are good and the new bar blends in with the garden without taking up too much room. Good food, good location, clean and comfortable, friendly people, what more can we say. A place we have recommended too many of our friends on many occasions. Ian & Jan

Dear Ian & Jan;

Thank you for your kind comments. Even before we have met you we knew so much about you and knew that you had stayed at Asena many times and always on an extended period of 3-4 weeks. This being our first season as hosts at Asena, welcoming repeat guests made us more nervous because we were not sure of their expectations. We consider ourselves very lucky because we always had very nice people stayed at Asena and everyone helped us with their great comments, friendship, suggestions and encouraged us. In that manner we shall also thank you for your friendship and kindness.

We hope to see you again soon.

Best Wishes
Volkan & Sebnem

This is the 1st time ever that i have felt the need to post a review of anywhere that i have holidayed but i just wanted to make public a big thank you to both Volkan and Sebnem for all their help, kindness and input to helping us have a fabulous holiday. This really is a lovely hotel, just a 10 minute stroll into town kept spotlessly clean with great rooms and a great bar area (enjoy definitely) which brings together all guests staying at the hotel,and many from outside and together with Volkan and Sebo creates a wonderful relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Sebnems cooking is something else that is absolutely delightful and the meal she cooked for our wedding anniversary made it a special night. Volkan also organises some lovely trips which were greatly enjoyed by everyone ( even the gorge ). All in all this is the ideal holiday for us and we cant wait to return. Thanks again Volkan and Sebo oh and a big mention also to the other guys pasa,omar and murvat they are all a great gang of people.

Hi Kim & Steve;

I don't even know how and where should I start to thank you. For being a great friend, for being a lovely couple, for making us feel special, for making great friends with everyone, for keeping us a great company day and night, for your great comment and support.... We all love you soooo much you place is unfulfillable. Just so grateful that we will see you next July and also will get to meet your friends. Already counting the days. The trips to Yuvarlakcay, the gorge, both boat trips were so fabulous with your presence. So far I can tell you that Roger has made his reservation at the same time with you, this time he will be here with his wife and also Amy & Adam and their parents will be at the same time so we can already be sure that we will have lots of fun and will carry on from where we have left. Everyone Omer, Pasa, Muruvet even Casper is sending their deepest love to you. We all miss you so much. Please take good care of yourselves and give our best to your family.

Your friends for lifetime,
Sebnem & Volkan

We have been to Dalyan seven times, always loved the village, but this is the best hotel we have stayed in and in a very good location just outside the main drag. The hotel is small and simple but very well presented and spotlessly clean and has the nice touch of a little sitting room with fridge for residents use. Pool and grounds are well maintained and there is a delightful central bar where everyone congregates - perfect for getting to know fellow guests. Sebnem, Volkan, Pasa, Halime and Omer (hope I get the names right) all worked continuously to make everything run smoothly and always with a smile and a good word. Breakfasts were excellent and we had two evening meals which were also excellent and very good value. We were interested to hear that Sebnem does teach some Turkish cooking, maybe something for another visit. We were only here for 5 days this year so missed Volkan's excursions but certainly his plans for future trips to less touristic places sounded good. His enthusiasm could sell you anything. Great place with wonderful warm welcome - they will probably be so successful we won't get in next year.

ASENA MOTEL, To be renamed soon "Enjoy" Don't miss it! 10 Minute walk out of the main square pass market towards Little England. Friendly, warm, open all year round and food in the evening to die for, Turkish Cusine with a twist! Best value for money in Dalyan.

Our first trip to Asena and I truly hope not our last.
The owners make you completely welcome like an old friend but are never pushy or put any demands on you. Volkan tries to arrange things to do for guests most days but if it's chilling by the pool that you would like there is know more perfect place. I have no criticism I can give either to Dalyan or to the Asena Motel.

Thank you so much for your lovely comment. We have met so many great friends in our first year at Asena but you have a special place in our hearts. Your kindness is unmatched. We couldn't thank you enough for your friendship and understanding at times we struggled! Your support and positive attitude had helped us in many ways to coop with our short-comings. We respect and love you so much. We will always look forward to seeing you.
