I don't even know where to begin with this hotel. Me and my boyfriend were there for a week and we were absolutely blown away by the friendliness and quality.
I'm just going to let this example speak by itself: our flight was delayed and we arrived at 3AM, waking Omer up. The very next morning at breakfast we were invited for a fishing trip by the owners. When we asked the price the answer was 'come on, this is a trip between friends. We'll split the cost between all of us at the end!'.
Now, the room we stayed in was the only twin and as a result somewhat basic. However, this was more than compensated by the fact that the hotel is so lovely. The garden is fantastic, with a pool, lounges and huge bean bags you can chill on, and read a book near the flower beds. The centre bar, built around a tree with really nice, mood lightning at night is great for drinks and conversation after spending the day in the town. There are bikes available to borrow, and the though in a map the hotel looks to be in the outskirts of Dalyan, it only takes 3 minutes to cycle to the centre (7 minute walk TOPS).
The food. Oh my god the food. Shebnan was in the Turkish equivalent of Master Chef and offers a unique, fresh menu for the guests every night. Every Wednesday Volkan goes off for a boar hunt and there is a huge feast, with traditional music, dancing and more amazing food.
Omer might be one of my favourite people in the world, super intelligent, kind and helpful. I just cannot put into words how kind, generous, welcoming, warm, fun, lovely and fantastic the owners are. It isn't a luxury hotel by any stretch of the imagination - but the result is oh so much better
