“Peace, relaxation and superb service”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

My wife and I have been to Turkey 20 times in the past 30 years. We counted them all up. In the beginning, all the places were quiet and had a genuinely authentic ambience but as time has gone on, many of Turkey's destinations have followed the example of Spain more closely than we like. Bodrum was once a quiet place, Olu Deniz was magical. Hisaronu had hardly begun. Kalkan has sprawled so that it doesn't resemble what it was fifteen years ago. Not only have the resorts turned into little Benidorms, they're not as cheap as they were (but still good value)
.
Datca is a breath of fresh air. I don't like to praise it too highly in case it fills up with the overspill from Altinkum. Datca has a sophisticated feel about it: nothing 'kiss me quick' in this place. The rich from Istanbul come and play here and they don't come to Datca to put up with crap. The restaurants are good, the shops are quality. It's a bit like Provence 60 years ago.

If you want noisy discos and English food, don't go to Datca Flow. It caters mainly to Turks so the (excellent) cuisine is Turkish. It was served as buffets but I think there may be an a la carte option, but we didn't try it or need it. Lovely polite staff, attentive but not intrusive; genuinely, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. And a nice uncrowded beach.

Incidentally, I'm not a windsurfer, but if you are, this is THE place. Miles of of sandy beach with no one on them, good fresh wind in abundance.

A perfect place to spend a few days. It feels like being on holiday when you're there. We will return, difinitely.

This hotel cum beach club on the picturesque Datca peninsular is one that we would happily return to. The location is on the southern side of the peninsular, a few miles from Datca town that has all amenities. This is a well-run, clean site with great views across the sea and to the hills. We took half-board and were rewarded with excellent food throughout our stay. Almonds and honey are some of the local specialities and the breakfast comb honey was a great touch. The pool and garden surrounds are beautiful, with good shade, attentive but not intrusive staff, so all the makings of a proper break. The beach has a windsurfing school that makes good use of the near constant breeze - great for cooling potentially high temperatures. There are fascinating historic sites and impressive land and seascapes. I shouldn't wax so lyrical, as it will only encourage others to go - I would prefer to keep this hotel a secret.

Room Tip: Go for the bigger rooms if you can afford it. It is worth it.

Our family of four stayed at Flow Datca - July 2013. We loved this low-key, small resort. It is very nicely laid out, the rooms are small but pleasant. The air conditioning works well, thank goodness, because it was hot! We made good use of the windsurfing instruction and enjoyed the pool. The food was also very good, although the variety might be a bit limiting if it was a prolonged stay. The staff were very pleasant. All in all - we had a great time and would certainly return.

Room Tip: We had 2 rooms - one with a double bed and one with 2 twins. We were on the ground floor, but did no...

We stayed in this hotel for 5 days last summer (2012) with two kids aged 6 and 10. The location of the hotel is a bit away from the center of the town but this did not really boher us as there are minibuses every half an hour. The place is a bit windy which we did like a lot though we do not surf since Datca's summers are too hot, so wind is more than welcome at this part of Turkey. Hotel is clean and nicely decorated, food is great. Serving is good. As the hotel has limited number of rooms, it is not crowded which is good since you do not need to queue for lunch or dinner. We liked the hotel a lot, planning to go back again.

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of days. This place is of medium quality for several reasons. Firstly, the hotel considers itself a windsurfing oriented place however windsurfing facilities are far from satisfactory. The equipment is old fashioned, the instructors are very arrogant, hard to reach or even speak to, since they keep on saying that they are better than Alacati, theirs is the best windsurfing resort in turkey and that we possibly can not windsurf in these waters! So discouraging and hard to believe for such a likely-to be-good resort. We were planning to windsurf at this hotel for 5 days, but indeed ended up biking and kayaking with our own sources and discovering old town Datca, since we could not break the barriers set by the hotel for windsurfers! If you have your own equipment, and experienced in wavy waters, come here. If not, go elsewhere where you can find excellent and humble windsurfing instructors, such as Alacati..
Secondly, do not ever attempt to want a glass of turkish tea after dinner since they will be reluctant to do so although they serve to the managers and their families staying at the hotel.! If the management, windsurf instructors change, the place can do great things.. Otherwise, not the best place I would visit for windsurfing or a friendly hotel staying.
