“Relaxing, laid back holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2009

It's all been said and everything reported previously is 100% correct.

The hotel was spotless and outside areas hosed down twice daily and the rooms were also cleaned daily. Mention must go to the maid who made up the beds occasionally festooning them with flowers and forming the towels into ornate shapes.

Umit, family and staff were all very attentive without being pushy and as previously stated, nothing was too much trouble.

The barbeque evenings were an excellent way of meeting fellow guests and the 3 courses represent good value for money, Breakfast is another communal meet-up and all nations get on famously despite the language differences.

Only 1 negative issue needs addressing and it is common to many hotels and that is the slippery surfaces in the bathroom when wet. A fellow guest suggested putting down a beach mat or similar and when brought to Umit's attention he did say he would address the problem - but I'm guessing perhaps next year.

Whould we go back - definately. "She who must be obeyed" and yours truely met some great people and even went on a couple of boat trips organised by regular guests, Mike & Carolyne.

A further thanks to Umit, family and staff - the only question now is not if but when we return.

My partner and I returned to the Mehtap Hotel for the third time in just over a year. To say we had counted the days since our last visit was an understatement. The warmth of Umit and Seraps welcome is just the start of what is always an idyllic holiday. We were fortunate enough to meet up with old friends and make new. The atmosphere amongst the guests is always one of friendliness and a keenness to share in the beauties of this delightful place.

it is to their credit that Umit and Serap have been chosen as "Best budget Hotel in Turkey for 2009" they have most certainly earned the accolade.

One of my most enduring memories of this visit is watching a sixteen year old, an eight year old and four year old Kirim, Umit and Seraps son, playing happily together in the pool and, indeed , going off to town together. The cameradie they had belied age and language differentials.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Mehtap with my 16 year old son this month and wanted to say what a lovely time we both had.

I found the hotel on trip advisor, read the reviews and wanted to stay. I had previously visited Dalyan and wanted to base myself there for my next trip to Turkey.

The Mehtap is a small, budget hotel. That is however all that is small and budget about this hotel. The service, the welcome, the friendliness and the attention Umit and Serap pay to their guests comfort and enjoyment is huge. My holiday plans changed at the last moment and thus my 16 year old accompanied me instead of my partner. Ordinarily I would have chosen a livlier hotel and resort if I were taking my family. However I need not have worried - my son loved his stay there!! The sheer friendliness of the staff and guests (many of whom are returnees) was such that it was impossible not to feel welcome and relaxed.

We will definetely be returning and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Mehtap to anyone considering a trip to Dalyan

i visited this hotel back in 01 and 02, just been reading the latest reviews and have been inspired to look at returning after spending the last six years holidaying in bodrum. when i visited it was run by kameron and his wife and his brother in law, kameron's son deniz alp was a little cutie, as was the hotel dog - moonlight! often wonder what happened to them and where they went, if anyone knows i would love to see some info on these dalyan reviews!
will certainly look at a return trip this september and see if it is still as relaxing. (i did not stay in june 2006 but it was the earliest dat that it would allow me to use)

Updating our report of 2006, we have now had some 23 visits to the Mehtap and it remains our favourite holiday home from home. There is a delightful atmosphere in this hotel, people say good morning and pass on tips about boat trips, restaurants and bars over breakfast or in the bar. Additionally, for some unfathomable reason, this hotel seems to attract extremely pleasant people. Many are repeat visitors but there always seem to be delightful new faces as well.....this year we were lucky enough (inter alia) to meet Dave and Lynn.
We agree that it is not, perhaps, ideal for children but for adults you could search long and hard to find a better venue. Our only complaint is that for many years we have 'phoned Umit and simply said 'arriving tomorrow for a couple of weeks'. Now, however, thanks to all the splendid and well merited reviews the Mehtap is highly booked up and we are having to think ahead! johnandjill

For the price, it was by far the best hotel value for money in Turkey. We paid 32 Euros per night for three adults, including breakfast and taxes. The room was spacious, bathrooms small and the shower was part of the bathroom, and thus after a shower everything was wet. It was fine in our case for two reasons, one the price we were paying, and secondly, our triple room had two bathrooms and thus one was used for showering and the other for brushing teeth etc. The breakfast was excellent, as was dinner. They also have a pool, and many pool chairs, which was great as in summer while the hotel only has 10 or so rooms, everyone has space at the pool. The hotel is a short walk to town, yet it has to be said that arriving in the neighborhood, it looks quite modern and not the charming Turkish village one would imagine. The setting of the town is definitely spectacular, along the river, with the tombs cut into the cliffs across the town, the beautiful beach nearby and the Roman ruins to boost. There is also a mud-pool spring nearby. Overall the stay was very enjoyble. Unit and his family do a wonderful job and make you feel very welcome in this clean, small, excellent value family hotel..

Stayed for two weeks at the Mehtap in september. dalyian is a great location, short transfer, and no hassle when going out to eat. Not your usual noisy, commercialised resort.

Umit & Serap were great hosts and could not do enough to help & assist with our stay.

Only fault would be when stayed at hotel for dinner. 3 courses served in 30mins. Would be better if this could be a bit more relaxed and you are given time to settle between courses. However, food was great and really enjoyed it.

My partner & i were on a two week holiday to relax & chill out and we certainly were at the end of the holiday.

Would certainly return and would recommend to friends to visit
