Reviewed 4 September 2013

Sadly only stayed here for one night which was not enough. Everything about this place is wonderful. The owners were lovely as were the staff. The building was designed by the owner and the room we had opened up onto the pool which has bean bags, lounger and plants around it which instantly gives a calm peaceful feeling. The room was great, excellent bed and bathroom. The breakfast was served outside and was plentiful. Alacati itself is a very charming place with many of its original buildings around. There are lots of restaurants and plenty of great unique shops. A real treat, cant wait to revisit

A real gem in a great location beside stunning Alacati. Really nice pool and breakfast is nice and authentic. Rooms very individual, staff very courteous and attentive but not in the way.

A nice touch is the 5pm coffee and pastry served in the terrace or by the pool. You really feel welcome here and they are very helpful for arranging activities etc. great little hotel in beautiful style.

It was.really unexpected and pretty surprise to meet this hotel. Except for being slightly expensive (which, in my opinion deserved tothe last penny) I could not find anything to criticize. Do spend one full night at the terrace that I guess is unique in whole Alacati town. May be owners can also prepare for you a dinner at the terrace if you request and for sure it will be very romantic and relaxing. All the port and town is under your eyes. Hotel has a very pretty and well maintained swimming pool, decoration is nice and all I can say is that I recommend it strongly if you have suitable budget.

We found ourselves in a high rise hotel that we were unhappy with. I read the reviews for the Chigdem and thought I would give it a try. Everything I read was true. They picked us up from our hotel, the gave us a guided tour of Alacati, they drove us to the beach, served us tea when we returned and prepared a dinner of grilled fish and traditional Turkish food just for us. The hotel was thoughtfully and tastefully decorated by their daughter in law. It was fun to talk to the whole family, they were all so gracious. We spent time on the roof looking at the stars that was comfortably fitted with cushions. Very high quality.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
About UsCommanding a fine view of Alacati, Chigdem Hotel greets the day with the sunrise. This hotel reflects the peace and nature among the bougainvilles overlooking Alacati's famous windmills. You can start the night sipping wine on the terrace-bar watching the sunset. It was constructed by certified engineer Batacar Baysal who made a surprise and gave his wife's name to the hotel(Çiğdem) and was decorated bytheir daughter-in-law, Gunel Baysal.Crocus FlowerCrocus flower, Colchium in Latin, is originally native to Eurasia. It is plant of woodlands ; blossoming in a variety of colors, standing out to strong winds with its fragile body, reminding us to endure and the power of existence. It has 59 species, 30 of which grow in Turkey. These flowers appear in the late winter often emerging in a colony when hardly a few plants blossom in the meantime. Flower color ranges from yellow, pink and blue, to a vast array of shades.Known as one of the most expensive spices of the world, Saffron is is obtained from the stigmas of of Crocus sativus. It was used to provide with nice odour for the baths by the ancient Grek and Roman. Crocuses have the late-winter/early spring bulbs. They are the first blossoms of spring and autumn. They have a short flowering period and after a two week process they end up with their buds. They survive until the next year by their bulbs storing the nutritives. These are the bulbs sold by the florists. It means you can grow any color of these flowers in your garden.Our hotel took its name from our hostess who took her name from these flowers: CHIGDEM.Special Category HotelSpecial Category hotels contributes to the tourism and are supported by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
