I just stayed here for a week with my partner and liked it a lot. Small hotel with a great view of the ocean. We stayed in one of the normal rooms, which was spacious and made good use of the private balcony (all rooms have one). The staff were very friendly and happy to help with all requests. The pool area was good for sunbathing (never too overcrowded during our stay, even though the hotel seemed pretty full) and also for drinks in the evening. The crowd was slightly older than us, around 50+, and a few younger couples with babies. This might have just been the time of year, as we travelled right at the start of peak season. Generally a good place for a quiet, relaxing holiday. The food was pretty good - not the most delicious thing ever but fresh and simple.
It's close to Kalkan centre but far enough to be relaxing - recommend going down to one of the beach clubs on the waterfront to get on a short water taxi for 5 lira (I particularly recommend the Mahal Beach Club - it is heavenly! You can rent a bed for the day for only 15 lira, which is well worth it. If you stay there during the day the water taxi is free.)
Loads of restaurants to choose from in Kalkan - we particularly liked The Olive Garden to eat and The Fountain cocktail bar. The owner Yas is super friendly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Fidanka, with its fauna, trees, beautiful gardens and antique furnishings, is a Mediterranean fairytale brought to life by a family from İstanbul who loves nature, art, gourmet food and locales with soul. Fidanka means female sapling in Bulgarian, and grows even more beautiful year after year with our love and the happiness of our guests. We have collected hundreds of objects and fauna throughout the years all over Turkey and the world, not because we think of them as decorations, but because we couldn’t bear to be without them. Toys from our childhood, mementos from our families, wooden ceilings, timber doors, window frames - some from nearby villages, some from the other side of the world, all combine to make Fidanka what it is. Fidanka offers five types of beautiful rooms each with immense terraces opening to breathtaking sea views. We used antique furnishings in all rooms, especially in the Timber Rooms. ... more less
