“Home from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2011

We have travelled around the world and stayed in many lovely places but we can honestly say that the Sandybrown hotel is the best place we have stayed at so far. Astrid and Kamil are great people and so helpful and friendly. Our beautiful room was equipped a lovely shower, really comfortable bed and best of all a balcony looking out over the pool and lush garden. We strongly advise you have at least one dinner at the Sandybrown as the food that was prepared for us was simply delicious. It's the little things that make a difference such as having a different breakfast to look forward to every morning. We would go back to Dalyan just to stay at the Sandybrown. We promise you will not be disappointed :)

A short trip from the airport and a warm welccome from the hosts Astrid and Kamil made us feel at home right away. The room was fabulous with a leafy balcony overlooking the pool where breakfast was effortlessly served every morning. We had a wonderful week's break exploring Dalyan but the highlight was the night we dined in eating delicious fresh fish expertly prepared by our hosts. Nothing was ever too much trouble. We will visit again. So should you. Go!

If you're looking for a quiet hotel with welcoming hosts and delicious food you could not do better.

Nothing is too much trouble for Astrid and Kamil. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we were made to feel like especially honoured and valued guests. Trips were organised with the minimum of fuss and prices agreed in advance. For example I particularly wanted to try a turkish shave (being a bloke!) and while I was at it had my haircut too. Shamefully my Turkish is non-existent but Kamil not only drove me and my son to the barber's but made sure it was understood what we wanted. Breakfasts were (I understand - this was our first trip to Turkey) typically Turkish buffet style with some items different every day.

The large, en-suite room was clean with lovely touches such as flower petals beautifully arranged on towels on the bed when we arrived. A personal note signed by Astrid and Kamil awaited us on arrival. The hot water was hot, the air conditioning worked a treat and our room had its own private balcony with views across the valley and of the hills in the distance.

The location of the hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Dalyan and has a wonderful swimming pool with toys for the kids to play with and lots of sun loungers around for the adults to snooze, read or sunbathe. Adjacent to the pool is a well stocked bar.

Dalyan itself is on a river and there are innumerable river boats as buses and available for private hire. Of the trips the 12 islands is a must, as is the hire of a boat for the day with your own captain. This sounds very grand but if you're able to share the boat with another family as we did the costs are kept down. Swimming in the sea, discovering underwater caves and swimming in the thermal river sounds odd but was lovely with the water warmer the further down you went. The kids enjoyed seeing the turtles and fishing for crabs. The boat trips themselves are a joy as they wind their way along the river. A trip to the mudbaths is also highly recommended.

Astrid and Kamil clearly worked very hard to make our holiday wonderful. Early starts for them in getting breakfast ready and often staying up late with their guests playing OK, chatting and generally being the perfect hosts. A big thank you to them both. We can't wait to visit again.

I don't usually write reviews on hotels, but this time I had to.
First because it's the only way to pay tribute to the staff, second cause I won't return there so soon ( another baby on the way ;o) so I don't have to keep it for myself.

The hotel is ok, cleean and good accomodations, great pool and jaccuzi, nice and quiet place.
Food was excelent ( took only local meals and it was worth it). Rooms are big , good air con, good bathroom, good beds ( and I know a lot about it ).

But that is the easy part, I mean it's only matter of means. The thing that makes SandyBrown so special is Astrid and Kamil.
They are really very friendly and they seem to have only one thing in mind : to make everything easy and pleasant to you. Want to go somewhere? want to eat something special, want to do a trek somewhere? They have the answers, and they contact theyr network to make it possible for you and at lower prices too. Our son was charmed by them, never wanted to return home ( that would be the only bad point for SandyBrown ;o).
It's simple, whenewer we needed something for us or our son, Astrid found a solution.

So it was really a good hollyday for us 3, and we still miss the chats we had with Astrid by the pool once the kid was sleeping.

Astrid and Kamil if you are reading this, thank you again.

P, C and of course, Paul

I have been coming to this hotel for 3 years now and it just keeps getting better and better. Astrid is the most marvellous host and nothing is ever too much trouble. Her kindness, her cooking, her attention to detail makes this one of my absolute favourite hotels. I always leavr wanting to return again SOON

Just spent 11 nights at Sandybrown Hotel we found it a very relaxing place to stay . Astrid and Kamil who run the hotel are very friendly and cannot do enough to help in any way from advising the best resturants to eat in and sorting out trips for you .It is a small hotel with beautiful pink flowers surrounding the building which were picked each morning to go on the breakfast table which was a nice touch .The breakfast every morning was very nice with something different each day.Their is no hotel entertainment but it is only a 10 to 15 minute walk to the town centre and river where you can find plenty of lovely places to eat and watch the world go by. It was always nice to finish the evening off around the hotel bar for last drinks with other guests and Astrid and Kamil. They have a lovely friendly dog called Shanty
and a great little boy called Max .We would like to recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a
relaxing holiday and would like to thank Astrid and Kamil for making our stay special

This hotel, run by Astrid and Kamil, is an oasis of peace and tranquility. We loved it. It is situated in a very quiet part of Dalyan (about 15 minutes walk to town) and does not have any entertainment. This was a big plus for us as we like the quiet life after being surrounded by people at work for the rest of the year! Astrid and Kamil couldn't do enough and the breakfasts were lovely with something different every day. They have a lovely little boy (Max) and a dog, so felt very homely. They can advise on anything you would like to do or see in Dalyan but we did nothing for two weeks...... I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
