We enjoyed a 4 night stay at Likya in early October and were extremely impressed with this hotel. Having access to the nearby beach club free of charge was just fantastic and where we spent most of our time. The hotel itself offered two pools which were a little chilly come October but comfortable for relaxing with sunloungers always available. We really liked the design of this hotel with all rooms outward facing, spent most evenings enjoying sunset from our balcony. The bar area reminded us of being in the Caribbean and they make a very good cocktail. We dined in the restaurant one evening and the food was just delicious and compared to the UK extremely good value.
Typically we like to head out for meals in the evening so was great to be able to easily walk into Kalkan where you really are spoiled for choice. We did not have one bad meal and have not stopped talking about Turkish cuisine since our return.
Only downside is we are in our early thirties and were really looking for some quiet time away. Would not suggest this hotel or indeed the Kalkan area to people looking for a bustling nightlife, however in saying that was quite late in the season.
Would definitely visit again.

Just returned home after nine nights at the Lykia.
The location is superb with all rooms having views either out to sea or, like ours, across the bay. It was magical.
Our room was a De Lux Suite and was well appointed with a large double bed and enough storage and wardrobe space for anyone staying the whole season.
Service was very professional and courteous but because most of the staff speak very little English it was difficult to establish a rapport.
The inclusive buffet style breakfast included a variety of morsels ranging from cereals to fruit and cheese. The chef was also on hand to cook up omelettes, pancakes or fried eggs.
We ate lunch at the poolside restaurant on several occasions and where impressed by the range of dishes and their high quality. The menu ranged from club sandwiches to cheeseburgers, pasta and salads.
We had dinner on the night of our arrival. Our table overlooked Kalkan Bay. It was a warm an balmy night and the meal did not disappoint. Once again plenty of choice and the quality of food and service was exceptional. We only ate there once as there is so much choice in Kalkan and also because it got a bit chilly at night and dinner was served in a covered area.
If you go as a couple and want to be left alone this is the place for you. My wife and I enjoy meeting new people and enjoying a drink with others. Sadly, there was no event to break the ice. Many hotels organise a 'Happy Hour' or a weekly managers cocktail party. These provide great opportunities to get chatting to fellow guests. There was no such event during our stay. Even the 'Turkish Night' was cancelled due to low interest.
At least one other couple made the same suggestion to the deputy restaurant manager but I'm not sure he understood what they were saying.
So to sum up, nice hotel in a great location. Food and service excellent. But - it's the people that you meet who often turn a good holiday into a great holiday. Perhaps we were just unlucky to be staying at a time when the majority of the other guests wanted to be left to their own devices.

We didn't stay here but I booked myself and 3 girlfriends in for treatments at the Spa before we left on holiday. They have lots of packages to choose from and from the moment we arrived we knew we had made a good decision to come as we were treated like royalty!

The traditional Turkish bath was good fun with all of us being done at the same time and then we each had different massages/facials etc.

The staff don't appear to speak very good English but were always smiling and wanted to make you enjoy yourself.

My massage was fabulous and the whole Spa package and treatments were excellent. We paid around £55-80 for different treatments and were there a good couple of hours. My masseur was a girl called Sinem and she really was excellent.

There is a chill out area in the swimming pool where you can just doze off and relax and also there is a small area outside with loungers for use in the Spa.

Considering this is a big hotel we were the only guests in the Spa - which was great for us!

All in all a very good visit and will return!

The likya residence was just perfect! The views from the pool and restaurant are amazing!

We stayed in the Likya retreat room to the side of the main hotel. The rooms were lovely. Clean plenty of space but if we stayed again we would stay in the main hotel just because there are a few flights of steep steps to get to the retreat rooms but it wasn't really an issue.

The whole team at Likya are so helpful and friendly. Our favourite waiters were Ibraham and Emra. Food is so good! Breakfast is included and plenty to choose from. Good menu to choose from for lunch and dinner.

Kalkan itself is a lovely place. This was our first time to Turkey and were told before that we would be hassled by shop and restaurant owners but other than at the front of the harbour this was not the case. The restaurants are gorgeous our fave was the Kalamaki restaurant and a bar called the fountain bar.

Girls, would recommend leaving the heels at home and when walking around Kalkan you will need flats as it is so hilly!

We will definitely come back soon!

Room Tip: Stay in main hotel if you want to avoid the steep steps on the retreat rooms!
