We have just come back from our first visit to Patara where we stayed for 11 days at the Sisyphos Hotel, which has just re-opened to the public under new ownership/management having being restructured and modernized. The location of the hotel is perfect: no other hotel is closer to the centre (the main T-junction) and yet it is very quiet. Our room was a little small (about 10 square metres) but the modern bathroom had a good size. The décor is simple but pleasing to the eye: The walls and furniture are brilliant white while minimalistic soft furnishing is in contrasting blue (or light blue). The air conditioning is effective and quiet (it can be kept on overnight without disrupting one’s sleep). Free wifi is available in the common areas.
Breakfast is excellent. Though not a buffet breakfast, the large plate that is served has a large variety of fresh fruit, sweet and non-sweet items, which is also beautifully presented. Breakfast is served on a shady terrace with good views. The swimming pool is very small but can be adequate if one does not plan to spend long hours in the pool area or to swim. The rooms and the hotel in general are meticulously clean.
We leave a comment on the managers/proprietors last. Everyone we have met in Patara was very kind but Baris and Arif have gone beyond that. They have been not only kind and responded positively and promptly to any request but have also been extremely attentive to any of our needs and proactive. And they have done this without being oppressive or overpowering.
We might return to Patara and, if we do, we would go back to the Sisyphos Hotel, not only for what the hotel has to offer but above all in the knowledge that, with Baris and Arif as well as the other staff, we will be properly looked after.
