Dolphin Boutique Hotel
Ranked #1 of 19 Bozburun B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 July 2011

Back in February I reserved a room here for a weeks stay in July. I booked directly with the hotel via email, they asked for 2 nights deposit of 180 lira, having confirmed the 90 lira per night charge on their website for July. They emailed me to confirm they had received the deposit bank transfer and that the room was reserved for me. The emails were sent by the hotel owner.

A few days before leaving I rang them to check on the last stage of the journey ...where to get off the dolmus....and was told they had no reservation for me and there were no rooms available. They said they could maybe find me another room in their other hotel but this would cost 153 lira per night instead of 90. I said no thanks (but of course had I actually arrived and found no room for me I would have had no choice but to accept that). I said that if my deposit was not returned I would contact the police. My deposit was returned.

I've had many independent holidays over years and years and I have never had this done to me before.

If the room had been TL80 or even TL100, I'd be writing a different review, but for TL140 b&b per night for a double room (TL180 including dinner for two), it is vastly overpriced and I would recommend going elsewhere.

First the good things: the views are fantastic, the balcony sitting area (with bar/restaurant) is lovely, garlanded in vines and flowers, the platform with loungers over the water is good (although, even with the hotel practically empty, there were problems over lounger availability). The room balcony was a good size.

Maybe part of the problem was our room. Certainly, some of the other rooms we peered into seemed to be rather better. Our room (top floor) had nothing to recommend it but the balcony and view (fantastic): very bare room, filled with lots of cheap, melamine, veneered, furniture and an extra bed. The only attractive element was a reasonable rug. Bathroom slightly small. In three nights we only had hot water once and one evening we hardly had water at all. None of this would have mattered, if we had been paying less.

Set dinners offered little variety and were also overpriced (although not as greatly) and were very ordinary, with two courses (three meze and a choice of fish (good), plain chicken or meat). In town, similarly priced meals included fruit/sweet and coffee. Instead, at this hotel, Turkish coffee was two or three times the price we paid elsewhere.

I have been to Turkey 19 times but this lovely hotel in an absolutely idealic location was definitely one of the highlights. My room, actually an exceptionally clean, charming mini-suite also had a nicely-tiled bathroom and a balcony overlooking the sea. Breakfast was delicious on the garden-like patio. The entire hotel is like a hand-crafted work of art designed and maintained by a gracious Turkish family. I remember the mom in particular. She was up early in the morning until dark, cleaning, cooking, or hosing off the patio in big rubber boots. I often think about this place when I'm at work here in Los Angeles and can't wait to return. Additionally, the Marmaris peninsula is surprisingly natural with no unsightly building blocks. It's a great place for walking, exploring hidden coves, watching boat-building and playing with dogs!
