A charming and beautifully situated hotel with all facilities provided and if you ask they will go out of their way to satisfy your needs.
Set low on a hill above the village - accessible for the less fit, this delightful hotel is smoothly run by its owner/manager, Ozgur, his wife Jadar??, his brother Engin?? (forgive me if these names are wrongly spelled) and other family members. The hospitality is amazing, warm and friendly and family oriented. For the non Turkish speaker it is fair to mention at this point that Ozgur studied in the USA and has no difficulty in coping with English and other languages as well (and this applies to other family members too). But even with my fractured Turkish, I was understood and enjoyed a wonderful interaction with the non English speaking family members.
I did not stay in the hotel, but living close by, I was welcomed as if I was a resident and treated splendidly. They even accommodated the cat who would wander down from the house where I was staying.
The pool area is clean, pretty and peaceful, beautifully surrounded with bougainvillea and views up and down the valley. Fresh towels and pool beds are there as well as Turkish lounging areas. The village and the sea are close, though the facilities could persuade the very idle not to go anywhere very far from the hotel, with 2 pool tables, games, wifi connection, air conditioning, good home cooked food and delightful hoteliers to keep you entertained.
The regular Dolmus (village bus service) will, however take you, inexpensively, to other parts of the country and coast and is a short walk from the hotel and the village offers dining and bars within strolling distance of the hotel.
What could be more delightful than dining at the poolside with tasty, barbecued food, fresh vegetables, salads and the scent of wild thyme in the air. Try everything, it is all delicious and in generous proportions.The food is mainly Turkish, but they will cook just about anything you ask for and excellently too!
My thanks to Ozgur and his family and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone seeking a peaceful holiday, honeymooners to families with or without children. You will be well catered for in all aspects.
