The High Life is an unpretentious, quiet hotel in a fabulous location. The rooms are large - much larger than an average Mediterranean hotel room and ours had a galleried bedroom upstairs. Excellent views of the sea and mountains. Towels are changed every day and bedlinen every other day. The whole place is spotlessly clean.
Swimming pool was a couple of steps away from our room - also kept very clean.
The terrace where meals are taken is set above the sea and is very pleasant. The quality of the food at dinner is very good, although the menu doesn't have a lot of choice and there is an occasional longish wait for the main course although with good company and a bottle of Turkish wine it's not that bad.
I'm not a cat lover and although there are15, they are not obtrusive, seeming to spend most of their day asleep in the sun so they didn't bother us at all.
This is a family run hotel and everyone is helpful. Our flight was delayed and we didn't arrive until 2.30am but one of the daughters was there to greet us with a smile to show us to our room. We had help with sightseeing directions as well.
It's very quiet at night as the hotel is some away from the road and the bar is a long way from the rooms, althought it's not the sort of place where people stay up late and that suited us fine.
Because of the location and the ambience, its all incredibly relaxing and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
