Keysan Yunus Hotel
Ranked #25 of 64 Hotels in Dalyan
Reviewed October 19, 2012

The riverside at Dalyan is beautiful and if you want a quiet, laid back holiday this is the perfect place. It is up to you whether you join in and socialise with the people who are obviously regulars there or chose to do your own thing. We struck a balance between the two and were fully accepted on that basis.
The rooms were basic but very clean and you were not charged additional fees for air conditioning.
The grounds are lovely with private areas should you wish to access them. The pool was a good size for such a small hotel and again spotlessly clean. ALL the staff were friendly and polite and tried to make your holiday as pleasant as they could.
The breakfasts were good and there were changes daily as to what was available. Nothing was left from the day before but was freshly made each day and carefully presented and protected from any bugs or from drying out.
Even the transfers between the airport and hotel were catered for and meticulously handled.
We were amazed at the value for money that this hotel provided.
How they manage to offer such facilities at the price we paid beggars belief. Well done to all at the hotel and thank you for such a lovely holiday.
PS Hassan and the boat should also get a mention. Such a pleasant man (ALWAYS smiling) and nothing was too much trouble on our excursions on the lake and to the beach.

Room Tip: We liked the room facing the pool. Even in high season I cannot imagine that it would be very noisy...

There is something very special about the Yunus. It doesn't have a big marble floored entrance or crystal chandeliers but what it does have is a beautiful setting, with lovely grounds, set on the Dalyan river with a mountain backdrop. This lovely Turkish family will look after you so well that you will want to return year after year. I have read some negative comments about Kamerun, some were rather detrimental. and I consider unfair. He is laid back but conducts all the buisiness which is very demanding because they are so busy. He does however care about his customers. There was a boat trip organised when I was there (October 2012) but because the weather was a bit changeable he cancelled it as he wanted his customers to enjoy the day, if he wanted only the money he would have gone ahead regardless, as some companies in the town did. While there one of the male guests was very unwell, Kamerun immediately arranged for him to go to the hospital. Although not an outgoing man, he genuinly cares, so please do not be put off by the negative comments. Hulya is a beautiful person and a lovely cook, the breakfasts are wonderful, ranging from cereal, fresh fruit (often from the garden), home made Borek to the normal Turkish Breakfast and always plenty of it. The rooms are basic but the most comfortable beds I have slept in and spotlessly clean, towels and bedding are changed on the average evey three days. Fatih is a charming man who you will find most helpful. If you want some night life the walk in to town is about 15 minuets where I am told there are 270 restaurants! However, the meals at the Yunus are hard to beat if you want a quiet night in. Dalyan is a lovely place and the Yunus Hotel makes it very special indeed. Be warned.....if it's your first visit to Turkey, Dalaman Airport is the most expensive Airport I have ever been to with a cup of horrible brown water which they call coffee costing £6!!!

Room Tip: Pool rooms seem to be very popular but I would imagine would be noisy at the height of the season if...

This is by far the friendliest hotels we have ever stayed in. The bedrooms are spacious and spotless and the staff welcoming and accommodating. Its peaceful yet so easy to walk into the town. The location by the river overlooking the opposite hillside is breathtaking and the whole area is absolutely stunning. With two teenagers we needed to chose the right accommodation and they settled in immediately and the staff made them feel very special. I would recommend this hotel to any traveler wanting peace, beauty, comfort and traditional turkish hospitality. The food was delicious and offered both English and Turkish and we struggled to find a better restaurant in the town!

Although basic rooms, the staff were so friendly and everything was very clean, air conditioning most welcome! Many of the guests had returned year after year which tells you how well thought of it is. Hulya, Kamuran and Fatih make the place complete with their friendliness and good service. The hotel is in a wonderful position by the river and everything is to hand. A very enjoyable and peaceful holiday. When I return, I would request a poolside room which has a larger bathroom.

Room Tip: Poolside room - bigger bathroom.

Over the last 16 years we have travelled to many
different resorts in Turkey but the last few years
we have been going back to the Keysan.

The hotel is laid back with fantastic views a lovely
garden setting by the river and a tempting pool.

Kamuran will do anything for you all you have to
do is ask him and he always gives you a big smile
especially when you pay the bill.
Hulya is the most friendilest person you could ever
meet and makes the best spicy meatballs in tomato
sauce in Dalyan.
Fatih will help you with anything especially with his
fishing tips a big thank you to Fatihs wife for gutting
all the fish I caught.

All the best will see you soon.
Richard & Christine.

Charming laid back relaxing hotel alongside the riverfront. We loved having our breakfast sitting at the river side tables, feeding the turtles, fish and birds little pieces of bread. Tranquil setting watching the river boats go by. Very convenient to walk into the village along the natural stone river walk. Take a public boat ride to Turtle Beach and see the ruins along the way, great day. We were lucky to meet a great group of friendly, welcoming guests who vacation at the hotel year after year. The owners, manager and staff were all terrific. Highly Recommend!

Room Tip: Ask for a pool front room, if possible, it faces out at the river side property.

I do enjoy reading all the reviews re Keysan Yunus Hotel - great entertainment. You can tell those that get it and those that well just don't - and should book a holiday in Ibiza or Blackpool. Let me tell anyone who has any doubts about this place. We have been all round the world and to some places that everyone reads and knows about and there is nowhere better than here. Yeah Kamuran is grumpy, thats his charm! Hulya is just the most beautiful person we have ever met and Fatih is well Fatih. Never forget the day we met and always look forward to seeing them. Heading back to Dalyan this year but messed up arrangements and have to stay somewhere else but we will be there for a beer or two soon
