I have stayed here before about 4 years ago and had a really lovely holiday ,so was well familiar with the set up ,I have been to Kalkan 3 times before and stayed in villas but since I thought I might be alone this year and got a really great deal on a self catering apartment ,
I booked it in January and stated I had mobility issues but on arrival was told by the manager there was no ground floor accommodation in the apartments and I could go in the hotel with free breakfast and Lunch which some people would be really happy I said sorry no so after a shuffle he gave me a first floor apt
I requested a safe as I was carrying English cash as exchange rate is better in Turkey then UK,
2 days into my stay I asked for my bag from the safe which is behind the reception I took what I thought was £200 (in bundles of £100 )I went of to the PTT to exchange it to lira and discover one of the bundles was £20 short and the other was £10 short ,on returning to the hotel I request to talk to the manager who said YOU have made a mistake and you will remember what you spent your money on and come to me to say sorry its impossible to steal from the safe you have the only key NO I will not be sorry I know how much money I had and its very clever the way the money was taken at which I was told you haven't paid yet for the safe and you have a bar bill for 87lira ,At this point I walked away the next day after reading reviews I am not the only one this has happened to I decided to talk to him regarding the safe issues and said you need to look at your CCTV one of your staff are stealing from the guests and to me it is £30 but this is your business and he said I dont know why people are reporting this on line when I gave them the money at NO point did he offer me the money but since I still had 10 days to go I kept it so my self only telling a friend who said he had had half a bottle of Gin go from his fridge and reported it and was told maybe your 17 yr old son drank it ,
This is all very sad as this really was a good hotel 4 years ago ,
The bar staff are great and didn't overcharge my room for anything thanks for the cocktails at the pool Fred
Thank you Murat for coming to say sorry about the whole safe situation more than the Manager did ,
The rooms are great value and I didn't even mind the hills as a taxi is £3 ,
I will be returning to Kalkan next year but sorry not to this hotel if you stay here be very aware and DO NOT USE THE SAFE lock your stuff in your suitcase its safer or get a box at the PTT in town as they have CCTV that works !!
