We have just returned from three lovely weeks in the Diana apartments, part of the Dionysia Hotel in Kalkan Turkey. Last year we stayed in the hotel, which we gave five stars, but as we were staying for longer wanted more facilities, such as a fridge and a washer.
We were greeted warmly, by the lovely Kate and Ahmet, when we arrived and shown the apartment. It was very clean and so cool. There is a large fan in the living area and free air con in the bedroom.
Marble floors run throughout with rugs scattered around. In the main living area there are two settees, one of which pulls out into an extra double bed, side tables, lamps, dining table and chairs. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, kettle, sink, hob, dishwasher,pots and pans, glasses, dishes, plates and cuttlery. There is also a juicer to make use of the oranges that you can buy locally.
A welcome hamper was waiting for us and had all that we required for the next couple of days.
The bathroom has a toilet, sink, shower and washing machine. The bedroom has a large double bed, plenty of storage, dressing table and bedside tables. There is also a mosquito plug to plug in at night.
The balcony at the front has enough room for a small table and two chairs. The views are amazing and always something different to see. There is also a small balcony leading from the bedroom with a clothes horse for washing or just beach towels and swim wear.
The swimming pool is a couple of seconds across the road and the swimming pool is sparkling. There is a pool bar open from 8am-8pm for drinks and snacks. The lunchtime snacks we had were very tasty and a wide menu to choose from.
There are alot of sunbeds, small tables and parasols and as long as everybody is fair and does not reserve beds whilst they go into town, plenty for everybody.
There is a moonlight bar at the top of the hotel and it is worth the climb to get the brilliant views of Kalkan. There is also the hotel restaurant and again a wide range of choice for all prices and tastes. On a Saturday night there is a barbeque night where the staff make sure you have a good time, which is also their aim for the whole of your stay.
Across the road, next to the apartments, is the garden area were you are able to watch television, usually sports, or sit in the comfortable chairs.
Even though we were in the apartments, we were able to open an account and charge drinks and meals, and the use of a safe, to pay at the end of our stay.
I had a couple of amazing massages with Ismet and recommend them one hundred percent. He will relieve your tension and make you feel totally relaxed.
We were so sad when our time came to leave. We have made some wonderful friends in Kalkan and hope to be back as soon as we can.
