The hotel is a 10 minute pleasant walk into the centre of Dalyan. The rooms are all large and ours had 1 four poster and 2 single beds for the 3 of us (grandmother, mother and teenage son) so plenty of room. Not that you spend much time in the room - the pool is deep and refreshing - surrounded by banana trees and 3 seperate areas to sunbath which would usually be enough as the hotel only has 14 rooms I believe. Kudret is a very thoughtful host and walked me down to the hamman massage place on the corner to ensure that I got the massage I wanted at the right price. His cooking is very good and I recommend the Turkish chicken (14 TL) which was delicious, and the steak sandwich was also very tasty. We ate here most nights as the food was consistanty good, and the prices are very reasonable - service always with a smile. The first 5 days of our trip it was just us and 2 other couples staying at the hotel (with non residents coming for an evening meal) and this was the best part of the holiday. For the last 2 days a family group of 27 arrived for their weeks holiday - and although they were very nice, we were completly overwhelmed and the youngsters woke us up at 3 in the morning coming back from their night out. Kudret did his best as he could see that this was not ideal for us and I am not criticising him or his staff at all - it was just an unfortunate end to what was otherwise a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Dalyan is a lovely town - and the locals are not at all oppressive (as I have found in Tunisia etc) Of course they will ask you if you would like to eat in their restaurant, but a simple smile and a thankyou but not tonight and they wish you a pleasant evening. I recommend the boat trip to the turtle beach, the bus to the other end of the turtle beach where you can see the turtle sanctuary and the walk to Kounos. I would think the best time to visit is May/June and September/October as it can get very hot in July/August. Taxi is 70 TL pick up from the airport, and 55TL drop off on the return to the airport, Kudret can organise all of this and any other trips you would like to go on. All in all a good holiday, and we will return.
