Having found Villa Kiydan by chance on the internet we booked for 2 weeks in July/August 2014 and were pleasantly surprised by the host, Onur his apartments and Dalyan. The fact that we have already booked to go back with friends next year sums up our opinion of the place.
Onur is attentive and always at hand yet never intrusive. The 20 minute private transfer to and from the airport is welcoming after a 4 hour flight. His family are always at hand to cook meals, serve drinks and to take you on a boat trip for the day. There are many boat trips available from the town however non are comparable to the one offered by Onur. The boat is luxurious; you choose either a trip to the sea caves and turtle beach or the lake and mud baths, but either way there is ample time to stop off for a swim and to relax and unwind whilst lunch is being freshly prepared.
The apartments are clean and spacious with great air-conditioning in the bedrooms. The kitchen has all the basic tools to prepare a meal but could benefit from an oven for those that do want to cook. There are two apartment blocks, one immediately next to the pool and the other set back slightly, some 2 bedroom apartments have 2 double beds and others have a double and a twin.
The grounds and pool are immaculate and there is a shaded den (converted pool bar) next to the pool which is a great place to relax when you have had enough of the sun.
The apartments are only a 5 mins walk to the nearest shop or restaurant and a further 5 minutes to the centre of town. The town has everything you require for a holiday however there are numerous excursions you can chose from if you want to venture further afield. The town retains a lot of character due to the fact there are no large hotels and has not been take over by tour operators.
Thanks goes to Onur and his family, see you all soon.
