Dalya Life
Ranked #1 of 18 Gocek B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2014

My friend and I stayed here overnight before travelling on to Kas. Our flight was delayed and so we arrived after 11.00 pm at Dalyan airport. The hotel had sent a taxi to pick us up, and when we arrived at Dalya Life we were welcomed warmly even though it was nearly midnight! I was even upgraded to suite, at no extra cost.
It wasn't until the morning that we realised what a beautiful place we had found. The grounds are delightful with orange and lemon trees, a meandering stream, chickens, friendly dogs and a lovely pool.
We were presented with a delicious breakfast and definitely felt our holiday had got off to an excellent start. This would be a wonderful place to stay for anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing retreat to chill out. Would definitely return if flying to Dalyman in the future.

We stayed two nights and loved it. Turkey is welcoming and yet this place was the best. We traveled for 3 weeks in Turkey by rental car and stayed about 3 nights each stay. The owners are genuine and warm and the creek which you can paddle a little in, the flowers, and the pool are very relaxing. My only problem with the stay is we didn't know how good it would be and we had to move on to our next destination. Appreciated the breakfast outdoors. Would we stay again? In a heartbeat.

Room Tip: All the rooms are individual buildings as far as we could see and it was really quiet.

Well, what can i say-just got back from a week here and it was absolutely lovely. So peaceful-most of the time, we were the only guests there-it felt like we had rented our own private villa complete with staff! Best part-so quiet-no crappy music by the pool-most of the time, all you can hear is the wildlife-very loud frogs at night, chickens in the morning-brilliant! The river/stream is lovely-keep your eye out for Terence the terrapin, and we did spot a crab as well! My boyfriend enjoyed fishing in the river. There is no set time for breakfast which is great-you just get up whenever you feel like it-we ate there most nights-it is a bit isolated, so you would have to walk into Gocek-about 2 hours, which we did once and was very nice, or Hakan will drop you off if he can. A taxi back from Gocek is 40 lira. Be warned-he is about the only person who speaks English, so if you need any information, you really need to speak to him, although everyone else was very friendly. Hakan was very helpful, dropping us off & picking us up, although there was hardly anyone else there so he had more time to help us. Recommend the chicken casserole-salads are also very good and my boyfriend loved the cheese pastries & courgette biscuits. We went to Fethiye one day on the bus and recommend the car cemetery bar. Not sure why the last reviewer complained about the beds-i had no problem with them, although i like firm beds anyway & my boyfriend is 6 foot 2 and didn't complain about it. My only point would be that the room could do with a separate mirror in the bedroom as the only one was in the bathroom, which doesn't help if your boyfriend hogs the bathroom, but really, that would be the only negative point. Oh and maybe the Turkish ravioli which i really didn't like, but maybe, that's just my taste! I got the best rate by e-mailing the hotel directly & if you need an airport transfer, i recommend Koral travel-they were on time (early, actually!) and very cheap. A special mention has to go to the mad puppy and cat who were an endless source of entertainment and i'm only sorry they wouldn't fit in my suitcase! Hakan was great-very helpful and it is an absolutely beautiful place to stay if you just want to get away from it all and have some peace and quiet. If you want bars and lager louts, forget it-if you want true Turkish hospitality and relaxation, this is it! Half the time, we didn't even lock our door-there really was no need.

Room Tip: We had a standard room-didn't see the better ones so can't comment, but it was fine-bathroom...

We stayed here our first night in Turkey. And even though we came quite late and the cook had already gone, Hakan (great host!) didn't let us stay hungry and cooked us something himself. Pitty we could stay only one night! The area is like a little garden of eden, very nice and pieceful. Oh, and the breakfast deserves a separate praise as well :)

This boutique hotel is a delightful escape from the hustle and bustle of life. There are several little extra touches that make this retreat extra special. The owners will happily collect you from Gocek if required and are very willing to help with any arrangements that you require. The food at this hotel is absolutely delicious and all home grown and produced. You are at liberty to eat in the stunning gardens or on the veranda surrounding the house. Relaxation is further enhanced by the company of the resident pets including playful kittens and some very tame hens. We were extremely amused at the hen who decided to share our lunch with us! The whole feel of the place is relaxed and very calming. You are free to use the rowing boats to row a short distance down the river, relax under the shady pergola or enjoy the lovely pool area - the choice is yours and the owners are happy to leave you in peace to enjoy your surroundings.
The rooms are in small individual villas each with their own bedroom and en-suite bathroom. This makes it all feel beautifully private. The only criticism that we have of this delightful hotel is the beds. I know that several other people have commented on this and it is a genuine problem. The beds are very short and incredibly hard. They don't really provide proper sheets on the beds either. I really hope that they invest in some new beds this year as this would make a massive difference to guest comfort.
This wonderful oasis is very close to Gocek yet feels a million miles from civilisation. The owners couldn't be more helpful and I would love to return to this hotel but only if they invest in some new beds. Maybe by the time you visit they will have done so. Have a wonderful holiday!

We stayed there with our 2 year old. He loved playing with their older kids and exploring the farm. Their family went out of their way to make us happy, even making us a requested dinner not on the menu. And breakfast was amazing!!
It is located near the city yet far enough out that you feel like you are in the middle of nature. We loved the place.

First of all,
My special thanks to Owner Family and of course Mr.Hakan.

We have been there as Honeymoon couple and really glad to pick this awesome, hidden gem of Gocek.
It is in the middle of Nature by the river far from all the city noises and people around.
Just 5 min drive from Hotel to Gocek Town Center.Moreover Hakan puts all his efforts to assist you with your enquiries.

We ll be happy to pick this place on next vacation as well and they deserve every penny.
Thanks for all,
Tarık&Nehir
