This holiday really was the most beautiful, the most relaxing hoiday we have ever had and this is the fisrt time ever I have said wiin 24hrs of being there that we will definitely be going back again next year. The hotel is stunning with fabulous pools and platfor beach area where diving into the crystal clear turquoise water is just so amazing. The staff were so freindly and cannot do enough for you, we even went out for meals to local restaurants with soe of them and they really do treat you like one of the family. The food here in the hotel is excellent and very reasonable. The restaurants in the town are just out of this world our favorite by far being 'Mussaka' where the service and the food are both beyond 5*.
We have done nothing but talk about our holiday since we returned. The Turkish people here are by far the nicest people we have ever met and we simply cant wait to return next year.
Thanks for a fantastic holiday Kulube and thank you to all the lovely locals we et in Kalkan, we look forwad to seeing you next year.

Loved absolutely everything about it! Nothing more to be said..the location, the hotel staff, the privacy,the fabulous design of a woman lying on our bed made out of towels , my bikini, flip flops and glasses(made by the lovely lady servicing our room) the town of Kalkan, the pools, the sea, the boat trip from the harbour, the short bus ride to the beautiful beach...cant moan about one thing...and i like to moan!! If I had to grumble I would say the air con was not ferocious enough for me and there was a heck of a noise from the crickets!! Get yourself there..you wont regret it! P.S Very comfy beds too!

The Kulube Hotel was a dream holiday come true for us. Beautiful location, two swimming pools and a beach area just a few steps from the bar. Although the town is within walking distance (c'mon, once you've braved the steep hill, stopping for a cold one halfway up at the House bar/restaurant, the rest is easy, and you encounter many nice places to eat/drink on the way) we spent our days at the hotel, as did nearly all the guests, only venturing into town in the evenings on the 7:30 shuttle bus. Consequently we felt part of a friendly family, which also included the fabulous staff. They couldn't do enough for us, always had a smile on their face and always put one on ours. People close to tears when having to inevitably leave was not an uncommon sight. If you want to escape the stresses of the world for a spell, this is the place to go,you'll be more chilled than you've felt in years before you know it.

Where do I start.......first and foremost, Kalkan is a fantastic little town in the outskirts of Turkey (Dalaman).....when you arrive in Kalkan you have 2 choices of where to stay....in the hillside along the Mediterranean coastline....I'll let you decide which you prefer!! :-/
We picked Kulube as it already had great reviews. At the Kulube, you not only got a choice of pools (Sean/Salt Water or normal pool) but you even have a private beach!!....trust me, a private beach in Kalkan is a rarity!!
The people are absolutely amazing and very accommodating......nothing is too much trouble and they treat you like part of the family....always happy to help, they'll give you recommendations and go the extra mile to ensure that your stay is without compromise! YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THIS PLACE!!***
The owner (Erol bey) walks around during the day, humble as pie, checking that everything is ok and where he can personally help you, he will! We were given great advice on the local hot spots, entertainment and places to eat (and NOT to eat!)....all of which was perfect.

Room Tip: There are 4no. rooms overlooking the saltwater pool - choose these for sure!! worth the extra amount...

The reviews for this place are spot on. Very small, friendly and personal. We had the whole place to ourselves most of the time( no kids allowed) and has its own private cove where you can bathe all day and swim, dive and all in waters around 26 degrees. The apartments are fab, well appointed albeit it simple and have good air con. The staff are all friendly helpful and the bus leaves into town at 10, 1.00 and 7.30 every day which takes 7-8 mins but you wouldn't walk it as its too severe in the heat we have had of 38-40+ degrees. Bus is only 2.5 lira each and cab back about 16 lira ( about £6.50) food is excellent everywhere with over 150 restaurants to try and many with roof terraces and next to harbour. The hotel has lovely spa, 3 pools + cove and all well maintained the standard of cleanliness is very high. Very highly recommended adults only get away. enjoy!

This stylish Hotel is one of only a few in Kalkan that has direct access to the sea shore, It has it's own gardens sloping down via steps with private patio areas and pool steps into crystal clear waters in its own little cove. This is not a suitable hotel for the elderly because of its hillside location nor is it really suitable if you have small children. It is a fair trek to the town but taxis are plentiful taking only a couple of minutes. The Old Town of Kalkan and it's harbour are mainly unspoilt and offer excellent dining experiences in the very many top rate restaurants and bars dotted about the town. The hotel is in the process of being updated and refurbished during the close season so there are no disturbances in the holiday season. I stayed in one of the newly converted rooms and have to say it was very nice with walk in shower large bedroom with spectacular views. I have been to the Kalube 5-6 times and want to go again. The staff are all very helpful and accommodating and the owner could not be more friendly and helpful too. The hotel resturants serve excellent food and the staff here too are great. The breakfast are to die for! Can't wait till our next visit.

Room Tip: usually take room 111 or 112 -cool but this year upgraded to 124/125 newly refurbed and converted...

Gorgeous setting on the hillside with steps going down to the crystal clear sea. Fresh water springs under the sea offer a refreshing woooosh as you swim. Lounge chairs with palapas dot the hillside which also features beautiful plantings and olive trees. There is also a pool if you're not one for the sea. Service was excellent as is often in Turkey and we are very much looking forward to going back! (in fact, it was very hard to leave...)
