I visited the Calbis between 7th and 14th July 2013 with my wife and son and must say that it is an excellent hotel despite it's 3* status. The whole of the complex is immaculately clean and the grounds are stunning. 2 great pools, no loud music and exceptionally friendly staff (Ronaldo - my favourite waiter)
The rooms were basic but totally adequate with air con standard. We had a pool view 1st floor my son had a roadside balcony just across the corridor from us and both were fine. No mould in the bathroom, fresh decor and nice furniture (no fridge or TV but who wants one of them on holiday???). Breakfast was tasty if a little limited at times - always fresh fruit, toast, cheeses and salamis, coffee and teas and sometimes omelettes, traditional Turkish foods and beans / egg etc. Lunches were very tasty and good value.
WiFi is free all over the hotel and grounds, ideal for my lad to keep in touch with his mates back home. the Calbis is about 800 meters from the resort centre with a pleasant walk passing bars, cafes, restaurants and shops on the way. Dalyan is a wonderful place to holiday, nothing like my distant memories of Marmaris. Turkey has a reputation for mither and relentless touting from owners of bars and shops but not here, Dalyan is small and personable and if someone asks you once to try their establishment, they remember your face and do not drive you mad asking over and over the same things, simply wishing you a pleasant day which was welcome!
The night security guy at the Calbis was a lovely man - didn't catch his name but we always chatted after a night out. He works for 6 months continuous without a single night off doing 12 hour shifts on his own, sometimes in 30-35 degrees at night!!! Lovely fella.
If trip advisor had a 1 to 10 green circles instead of 5 then Calbis would get 9 from me, it's 90% quality. The limited breakfast choice was the only downside for me, plus the walk into the resort centre if you had trouble walking may be an issue. Value for money it is spot on and we hope to go back in October.
