I hope that this reports helps any reader to rid themselves of any apprenhension if they are new to Dalyan, and if they intend to stay at the Fatih for the first time.
This is a charming family ran accomodation that is warm and welcoming in it's hospitality. Rose and Emrullah have the philosophy that as a guest you are part of the family and they offer you all the help, curteousy and regard that one needs to be quickly become relaxed, acclimatised and unwind from the worries of everyday life left behind.
We travelled as a family, and Rose, Emrullah with their sons Kaan and Fatih are very friendly to children in a way that can put other less tolerate people (mostly the English, which alas I class myself) to shame. They always made time to ask how you were doing, if they could help, or just chatted if you wanted to.
The accomodation is a comfortable stroll into the centre of Dalyan (5 minutes), which provides greater privacy and a quieter environment, although Dalyan itself is charming and far from rowdy.
The rooms are of a very good standard and cleaned on a regular basis. The pool area, gardens and sun terrace is well maintained and cleanly. The sunbeds are mostly wooden and comfortable with some bean bags which proved to be ideal for reading.
Rose is in our opinions one of the best cooks in Dalyan and her husband was a chef at their sons restaurant 'Denizati' in Dalyan itself, therefore the food is of superb quality and variety. Offering authentic turkish cuisine and English meals. Breakfasts not to be missed as is Rose's homemade lemonade.
The prices of the food were slightly cheaper, as were the drinks than most places in Dalyan, which itself was cheaper than most other tourist destinations we have visited.
Entertainment was available if you wanted, we attended both the Turkish and Barbeque nights and would recommend them.
Rose and her family are extremely hard working and honest people and made are stay so enjoyable that he intend to return to the Fatih next year. My dopey son left out an expensive camcorder that he had inadvertantly lost for 2 days, and Emrullah found it and gave it to us back. My son and ourselves were not even aware that he'd lost it in the first place.
Do not have any worries about staying here as it is fantastic place, but what made the whole holiday better were the lovely family that ran the accomodation.
As we left the Fatih on the last day, we were given a lovely farewell from all the family who gave us lots of hugs and bade us a genuinely warm wish for a safe journey. Lots of moist eyes for our part and something that we'd never had before as we are usually just quiet English reserved sun worshippers on holidays, but this goodbyes really touched us.
As with many that use trip advisor, and give reviews on Dalyan, we are now devotee's. It is not just Rose and her family (although they are special to us), but the whole place is wonderful and that little 'bit special' for a destination.
Can not recommend a stay at the Fatih highly enough, and would gladly answer any questions from trip advisor users about the Fatih.
