We travelled independently and had booked the Dolunay Apts that we had stayed in last year. The day before we travelled I had an email to say they had overbooked and we were being moved to the Fatih Apts.
Well, we arrived at the apts at 11.30pm and were given a 3 bedroomed apt for 2 of us! It was huge, and was in the older part of the complex. The family were very accommodating and Rose even cooked us something to eat at that time of night. Rose is an excellent cook, and her sons Fatih and Khan are friendly and helpful.
The pool area isn't massive but we prefer going to the beach anyway so it wasn't a problem for us.
There is a Turkish night every couple of weeks which was good fun and again Rose's cooking was superb. They also had a BBQ night which we didn't go to because we had a trip booked that night but was apparently very good.
The family seem to know everyone in the area and are happy to make phone calls and get you picked up. We had a Turkish bath at the Sahin apts and Fatih arranged for us to be picked up and dropped off when we wanted to go. They also reconfirmed the return travel arrangements for us.
The rooms were cleaned regularly and although the kitchen facilities are fairly basic it's not a problem as we ate out every night. It was adequate for us to do a bit of brekkie and keep the beers cool!
Aircon is £4 per night - Dolunay charged £8 last year so this was much cheaper.
When we left, Rose gave us a bottle of delicious home made lemonade to take with us which sums up the warmth you get from this family and I felt we left them as friends. If (when!) we return to Dalyan, we will stay here again.
