You need to be aware that this hotel is not in Gocek town. In fact, it's probably nearer Dalaman than Gocek but that's also its great advantage. It's about 20 minutes drive to the airport and makes a great base for a peaceful start to either the end or the start of your holiday.
We arrived late evening and had a room in the main house initially, but then moved to a garden suite for the second night - it's certainly worth paying the extra for these if you can though the standard garden rooms looked nice too.
During the day we just chilled out by the pool and enjoyed the lovely, peaceful surroundings and gardens. There's lunch on the terrace if you want it and then a drive down to Gocek for dinner in the evening.
It's all very casual (which some people may find a bit off-putting, but suits us) and you soon get used to the chickens, cockerels and kittens which roam the grounds. Hakkan seems to happy to act as host, tour guide and/or taxi driver if you need him.
