My wife, son and I are just back from a week at Aika Hotel, Bozcaada. We found exactly what we were looking for! And more! Our desire was for a quiet, clean island hotel, well run and stress free. Claudia and Umit gave us all of this and more. We felt more like family than we did like paying guests. These are hotel owners who clearly enjoy the work they have chosen for themselves. They like people, they are interested in people and they are part of a marvelously gracious Turkish culture.
From our first contact by email to a heartfelt hug on departure, we were taken care of. On arrival, I inquired as to the possibility of cooking classes. Within an hour, I had an invitation to spend the next day in the kitchen of one of the most interesting restaurants on the island, with the chef and his staff. Every day we had a report on which beach would be best (depending on the wind). We enjoyed the terrific breakfast in the garden-the staff is kind and attentive, and returning at the end of the day to smiles and a few quiet moments.
Rooms are of good size and spotless, the shower is great-important to me! There is nothing about the hotel that I would change. It's an excellent place to stay.
