I stayed here July 2012 with my partner.
First impressions were excellent- The grounds were beautiful, covered with flowers.
Please bring dog and cat food or buy it there to feed the night time hedgehogs, stray cats and dogs. :)

Accomodation was basic but clean. The only thing I found cheeky was that all holiday the cleaners did a basic clean and then on the last day, decorated the towels, covered the bed in petals and then left an envelope saying -TIP BOX. Naturally I took a photo of this for you to all see.

Its location is a 15minute walk into town, up a long road (see pics)- Dalyan is a beautiful fishing village- If you want to go to turtle beach MAKE SURE YOU TAKE THE BUS (It takes you to a prettier, less busy side and there are actually turtles for you to see. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE contribute to this fantastic charity that nurses injured turtles back to health.

The pancake place in town is amazing and looks like a real turkish place.
Make sure you tip at the markets as the locals try to rip you off.

The pool was always very clean.
A little personal niggle- The food at the hotel was very overpriced and average-
Hibiscus gardens in dalyan town is AMAZING- youve got to try the garlic steak! So yummy :)

Staying in Dalyan was amazing and I would gladly go back again.

Stayed September - October 2011 for 21 days.

I have been to Dalayan 3 years on the run and I have to say that this was the best.

Accomodation.

1 bedroom apartment - very clean and cleaned every day. Cleaners exceptional.

Staff

Brilliant - everyone so friendlyand helpful.

Pool

I do not use - but big and clean. Plenty of sun beds. ( see photos )

Room

Superb. My cleaners totally looked after me ( see photograph )

Facilities

10 mins walk from town centre. Dalyan quiet and superb. However, very little for children.

Market so so.

Dalayan restauarants - choose carefully. Some very cheap, others very expensive for same quality of food. You can eat very cheaply if you choose carefully.

Steak House - 10 mins down the road superb for breakfast and dinner. Hopefully Max still there to greet you.

Hotel free wi-fi - very important to me for business. If you have skype, very cheap or even free to make calls home.

Cat lovers

I am actually a dog lover, but i absolutely fell in love the four pure white kittens who adopted me along with their mother. ( see photographs ) You have got to see white dad. He is awsesome. Unfortunatley do not have a photograph.

Conclusion

The complex is brilliant and well maintained.

Warning - my fault. I sat out out on the rear veranda 3 days before I was due to leave. I did not spray myself and was severley bitten by mosquitos. In 3 years visiting Turkey, I have never had the problem 12 months later I have finally got ridden of the scars from 3 bites. Make sure you do not make my mistake and cover yourself in spray.

This is our 4th year in succession going to Turkey – the first year (2009) we went to Icmeler (which was lovely). We took the trip to the mud baths at Dalyan, passed Dalyan without stopping and thought the place looked incredible and so we booked to go there the following year, to the Dolunay Apartments, or the Villa Dolunay Apartments. We loved the place so much we returned the year after, and again this year, and we will go back next September, to the Dolunay. I have written two pretty full and comprehensive reviews on Trip Advisor so I won’t ramble on. The Dolunay is not perfect, but it suits us fine. Sixteen apartments, clean, a bit ramshackle (what do you expect for the price?), big pool, ample sunbeds, lovely owners. For regulars, Buddy is still alive and kicking, and a bit stinky! He still follows you into town and waits patiently for you. We have met some wonderful people there, David and Edna, Alison and Kevin, Mandy and Paul, Isobel and Barry, Sandra and Gordon. Hope to see you all in September, 2013. The beds are a tad hard, the water is tepid in the morning (not later on though), there’s a lack of drawer space (as seems to be a problem almost everywhere), and the safes are in reception. Not perfect, but perfect for us. There are a couple of good enough restaurants within a 5 or 6 minute stroll from the apartments. If you don’t like cats, this is NOT the place for you. September it is most certainly a month for the more mature person!!!!

Room Tip: Ground floor for cat lovers, upstairs for people who don't like cats!

Currently staying at the Dolunay for the fifth year running. These apartments are most suitable for older couples wanting a quiet, relaxed holiday. Not really much to please children or teenagers and the apartments would be cramped for more than two people. The apartments are basic as is reflected in the price but the pool and gardens are lovely. Ghokan and family are friendly and always ready to help. We have already booked for next year which says it all really !

We stayed at the Dolunay for the whole of our two week stay in Dalyan for the third time in the last five years and it did not disappoint. The bar area has been updated and the food and drinks are always delicious. Gourkan and his family are always very friendly and welcoming and will do anything to make you feel at home.
Ubedi is still there, accompanying you on your balcony and making sure you arrive to your restaurant alright in the evening.
Overall Dolunay is a welcoming, tidy set of apartments set just outside the main town of Dalyan that would make a good holiday destination for couples and families looking for a break.

Have just returned from our second visit to the Dolunay apartments and our stay was even better than last year.Gokhan and his family have improved the apartments and the pool was in fantastic condition.They all work very hard including the cleaners to keep the apartments and restaurant,pool area etc very clean.
It was nice to see that they have a few more customers now but I hope this does not spoil it too much as one of the great things was it was very peaceful.
Nothing is too much trouble for them ,you only have to ask .Thank you very much for getting us to the airport Gokhan and we hope to see you next year!
One thing I would like to comment on is the comments some people have made regarding the children ,when you have parents and family that have a business to run and their children are on holiday from school as are children are in England what do you expect them to do with the children? Gokhan and his family have small children and all day they stay around the pool in the restaurant area where they are quiet most of the time and then they are allowed to go in the pool when the customers start to leave the pool area.They are children ,all children make noise at some time !
