Kenan (the owner/manager) and Murad are quite the team and made our visit truly memorable and fun with their outstanding hospitality.
The property itself is very nice, quiet and comfortable but not amazing. We were in a family suite that was super comfortable for four adults.
We were initially a bit taken aback by the prices on the dinner menu, but the food turned out to be truly outstanding. We ended up eating at Sandima both nights we were there and really enjoyed it. We are vegetarians and the menu did not really offer us much choice. Murad worked with us to figure out dishes that could be prepared for us and worked with the chef to make it happen. Every item turned out to be delicious. The breakfasts were awesome and we really appreciated their flexibility, since both the mornings we needed to have breakfast earlier than their normal schedule.
The cats can be a bit bothersome and intrusive, but you get used to them.
Our regret is that we did not get to spend too much time in Yalikavak itself, because our kids had to go to Bodrum to dive and we accompanied them. It seemed like a really nice town and Kenan offered to drive us down there. The walk down to the Marina and restaurants is a bit steep on a fairly trafficked road but a nice challenge. Would highly recommend staying here, if you are planning to just chill out for a few days.
