I've never posted anything despite travelling abroad each year with my husband (for pleasure); however, I was inspired by the service, ammenities and value at the Villa DanLin in light of the small size of both the hotel (B&B is more accurate) and the town.
Last minute itinerary changes reduced our stay at the Villa DanLin to one night. Having provided advance notice of this change, the Villa Dan Lin was very gracious and had a driver waiting for us at the Dalaman airport as we had requested. In addition, the English-speaking receptionist/manager must have proactively taken a mental note of our schedule for the next morning, which we had shared via e-mail prior to arrival, because upon returning from a stroll through the town (around 11:30 pm), she suggested (unsolicited) the best time for a wakeup call to ensure we'd have time to check-out, eat and meet the driver she arranged to take us to our next destination.
Gocek is a small, laid-back and charming town where you'll see a lot of yachts and gulllets. The upscale shops and even those with the typical tourist fare are not as aggressive as those in other larger port towns like Oludeniz. Most of the tourist restaurants in the harbour do make a strong pitch to get you in, however.
For a very small moderately-priced B&B (I think we paid around $70USD), the savvy, professional service surprised and impressed me. The facility is also well-tended to despite some shabby surroundings outside of the hotel grounds. The Hotel makes the most of the compact space. I would certainly stay there again.
