“Barbarossa - a place to return to”
Reviewed 11 September 2009

We have never spent holidays in Turkey before and were a little doubtful before going there. The thought of mixing with crowds of tourists, invading Antalya and Marmaris - just 2-3 hours drive from Kas, was a bit worrying.

Luckily, we quite by chance, found a perfect spot (Kas) and the best place to stay on the peninsular - Barbarossa hotel. If you are looking for privacy in a best location, crystal clear turquoise water, which you can access just walking down a few metres from your room, breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and lots of things to do and see in the area, then Barbarossa is a right place for you too.

Barbarossa is a small boutique hotel - just 25 rooms and the place never seems crowded. Whether you choose to use the sea water pool or go down to the sea side - you will always have this feeling of privacy and exclusiveness.

The personnell is very friendly, helpful and informal. Here we must add that the hotel staff and the management create a very special atmosphere with positive energy in the place, really caring for the guests and that everybody is happy. This you obviously don't find in larger hotels...

The rooms have different style and decor, the best ones are the corner rooms with sea view.

The cuisine is local (Turkish), which we found tasty and healthy with a lot of fresh fruit and vegetable variety. Grilled meat, lamb and fish would definitely be a part of lunch and dinner buffee. The food is best washed down with local wines, which we also found of good quality.

As for things to do and see - the hotel provides an excellent choice of excursions in cooperation with the best local tourist agent. Don't miss the Saklikent gorge and Kekova (sunken city) - both whole day excursions.

We are sure we'll return to the place and can definitely recommend it as a very special holiday.

Barbarossa is just wonderful. We hesitate to review it because it's such a marvellous secret. Set on a peninsula, the hotel is built on many levels, running down to a private rocky promontory, from where you can get into the sea. The rooms are spacious and light, with panoramic views from the balcony, the infinity pool constantly refilled with fresh sea water, the food simple Turkish fare, heavy on fresh salads, fruit and grilled meats. At night you eat your supper amid bobbing lights, with the immaculate staff on hand to help with everything. It's not very cheap, but we're not surprised. We had one of our best holidays ever.

We were booked at another hotel in Kas but after being completely horrified we checked out after one night, drove around the peninsula and relieved to have found Hotel Barbarossa. After telling the manager about our horrific experience, she offered us a deluxe room for the same price that we were paying at the other hotel. The room decor was a bit flowery for my taste but was very large, clean, overlooked the pool and sea, equipped with AC, wireless internet and modern (seems like newly renovated) bath. The beach is actually a stone terrace with a long jetty, which makes it comfortable to plunge into the turquoise swimming cove (which I much prefer to over-crowded sandy beaches). The water was fantastically warm and clear. We took half-board and the food was excellent. Growing up partially vegetarian, I was delighted to find such a variety of vegetable mezzas (Turkish tapas). The barbeque lunch buffet provided a wide variety of options and the afternoon tea and cake was great break after a long day of lounging and swimming. In the evening the swimming cove becomes a nice bar-lounge with magnificent views of the sunset and perfect for romantic star-gazing. The staff was young, energetic and always cheerful and ready to help you with anything you needed. The staff was ready to help with transfers into Kas city center, boat tours of the sunken city, swimming with dolphins or any other activity. I would highly recommend this place!

Hello,
The club is perfect, the sea is excelent, staffs are great. we spent one of our best holidays and we don't wanna leave barbarossa. I think that it is necessary to go there before dying, like that you can see what looks like the paradise. The hotel is much better in really that these photos. The staffs are so friendly that you do not want to leave them. The prices are not expensive with regard to the other hotels and the quality is much more better. I thank all the staff for this vacancy.

I have spend four days in Barbarossa and I did not want to leave. The best part about the Barbarossa is the guests. Very select international clients. I also loved the food (great vegetables prepared with olive oil) and the grill during lunch. The service staff was great too. They really cared about us. I will be coming back to Barbarossa. It has great positive energy, a magnet for peace of mind. Cristal clear water and lovely wind by the sea side.. Thanks Barbarossa.

Barbarossa is the perfect place to chill out. It's got private access to the sea which is so clear and clean with fish easy to spot. If you love your food, this is also the best place to stay. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are delicious and having lived in Istanbul, I can say that this is top-class Turkish food. The views and scenary are unspoilt so this means the photos on the website don't lie! The rooms are also of a very good standard. I always recommend my friends to stay here as it is a true taste of Turkish hospitality in a beautiful location matched by amazing food (yes, I know I'm slightly obsessed by food!).
