“The New Diamond of Kusadasi”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We have been coming to Kusadasi for years and stayed in all manner of accommodations throughout that time and this is the first time I feel truly compelled to tell other people about this hidden gem of Kusadasi. Excellent location overlooking the Aegean and within 10 mins walking distance of both ladies beach and the centrum.

Recently fully renovated in the off season it really is something to behold. Freshly furnished with French Boutique style furniture in every room, beautiful relaxation room by reception where you can relax to the sounds of classical music playing in the background. The pool area has also been redone and the water quality was excellent. Free WiFi and use of the private safe in our room was also a really nice touch, and really speaks volumes of the owners attention to detail on this refurb.

We ate in the hotel a couple of night and ordered from the a la carte rather than the buffet as we prefer to dine in this manner. We had aperitif cocktails a few nights and the barman ErCan who truly is a master of his art. We met both the owners and the mangers Erhan and Gurol and they made our stay really special, the level of warmth and hospitality was exceptional. It's impossible to list all the ways in which every member of the staff does the most to make sure your stay is incredible. Suffice to say that we arrived as guests and departed as friends.

We cannot wait to return in September again.....

Room Tip: All rooms have panoramic seaviews and allow you experience Kusadasi's wonderful sunsets.

My tour company booked me at the hotel, and I was very satisfied with the experience. The room was nice (seems to have been updated fairly recently), the pool area was very relaxing, the breakfast and dinner buffets were great, and the location was perfect (short walk to town). But the thing that really stands out from the experience was the hotel staff, who were terrific. Everyone I interacted with - the bartenders, waitstaff, front desk staff, etc. - were all very cheerful, helpful, and welcoming. One night we were trying to take some photos of the sunset, and a woman seated a nearby table came over and offered to take some photos of my friend and me. Afterwards we started chatting with her and discovered that she's the owner's girlfriend - she too was positive and helpful, just like the staff. I highly recommend the Hotel Carina!

The tour company for the classic Turkey tour booked me in Hotel Carina. Certainly a lovely place to stay in in Kusadasi. I admit the facilities are pretty basic - bedroom and bathroom are very clean and comfortable. But the view from the vantage point of the rooms is stunning, especially at sun down. I was able to survey the area and could certainly tell that Hotel Carina is more relaxing because of the open space (the pool front and bar). In the evenings, they hold lovely dinners with great music. I definitely recommend the place.

Room Tip: I highly recommend the rooms facing the sea, not the ones at the side apartment

First off all I would like to thank the Hotel Carina staff for a wonderful holiday.

We spent our 2 week easther holiday with our 6 year old daughter (there where 3 or 4 familys with children that age there) in Hotel Carina. We were welcomed very friendly. The rooms look just like the rooms on the Internet, very pretty and they where made up new. The bathroom was very nice, we loved the shower in there :-). The Hotel is very, very clean and the staff work hard to keep it that way. The pool- and bararea is very pretty too and - as the rest of the Hotel - very clean.
The food ist faboulus. The efford put in there is unbeleavable. We had every day different dishes on the buffet. In our 1st week, the Hotel was rather empty, so they gave us a lovely 4 course meal for dinner. As it got fuller, we got the lovely buffet. In the morning the chef was standing there himself cooking omletts and pancakes (not every morning, but it was a nice change when he did stand there :-)). It was a little shame that the drinks in the Hotel are so expencive. We think, if they would be a bit cheaper, the people would drink a lot more there, because it is lovely sitting in the bararea. But that is the only thing we thought a shame, and you can live with that :-)

The staff was allways very helpful with any questions and telling us how the weather will be :-).

The Hotel is nicely seated with a stunning seaview (you sit at the dinnertable in the evening and can watch the sunset). To Kusadasi harbor it is a very nice 10 minute walk down the hill. Also to the centrum. We don't recomend Ladys Beach, at the time we were there it wasn't nice at all. We went with the Dolmus (they are great!!) to Pygale beach, easy to find.

Let me also say hello to Ercan at the poolbar, the new shipowner ;-)

Hotel Carina, we had the most lovely holiday and would allways come again. Thank you very much!!
