Stayed here for two nights. A really wonderfully laid back hotel, beautiful setting in lush gardens, and the most amazing views on the river. Can swim from the hotel , breakfast delicious, owners very discreet but so we'll run. Rooms spotless, air con and lovely shower room . 5 minute walk to centre, but so quiet and peaceful.

Very nice hotel with a beautiful river front lounge area. Very easy walk to town but far enough to be quiet and peaceful. The owners are friendly, although not super helpful in recommending things to do or places to go in town. The room we stayed in was very clean but a bit on the small side.

We were able to stay in this lovely location for 2 nights. We took the bus into Dalyan and then took a quick taxi ride to the hotel. It is right on the river with a wonderful little garden and amazing views of the rock tombs. We had a good dinner there our first night, sitting by the river while... More

The breakfast which serves with open buffet was very fulfilling and i especially loved their homemade plum marmalades.After breakfast,if you want to go to the İztuzu beach,the only thing that you...

This hotel is set in a peaceful riverside garden with a full view of the Lycian Tombs. The welcoming owners offer a delicious buffet breakfast and will arrange river transportation and laundry. Their home-made Turkish dinner option is worth the additional cost. You can swim off the dock. We highly recommend staying here.

Stayed at The Happy Caretta Hotel for two nights. Hotel has a lovely view of the lake and rock tombs. Also enjoyed the breakfast - local olives, homemade jam, breads, melon and delicious cheese.
