We booked this hotel based on the other reviews and weren't disappointed! We are a family of 3 and our daughter is 8. I was worried that there may not be many children around as it looked quite coupley from the reviews, however, there were enough so the kids could make friends and all lovely kids too! Firstly the positives:
its a short transfer from/to the airport, the rooms were lovely - we booked a slightly larger room than the standard and had a lovely bay window with seating. The staff are all very polite and go out of their way to help. We were on B&B basis and the breakfasts were fab - the usual buffet and then freshly cooked pancakes, omlettes, eggs etc. The pool area is lovely and my daughter especially loved swimming up and ordering a chocolate milkshake for elevensies! Lunch was fine and we only ate at the hotel once (we got a voucher for a complimentary meal for 1 night), however we prefer to sample the local restaurants so didn't eat again at the hotel although the food seemed ok. The cleanliness of the pool area, rooms etc was fantastic and the maids were so lovely. The location is a 5-10 min stroll into the centre of Dalyan along the river which was a lovely walk. We sampled many of the restaurants but the one that stands out for us is called Safran which is right at the top of the main drag (its virtually the last restaurant you come to). The food, staff and location is fab and you get a great view of the tombs lit up at night. I highly recommend the prawns, crab and the baked lamb and salted fish - all excellent! The only minor downpoints were (and I can't believe I'm saying this!) is that the staff at breakfast seemed a little too efficient so no sooner had you taken your last mouthful or last sip of tea your plate/cup was whisked away from you, even if you wanted something else! My only other minor gripe was that on occasion the bar seemed to run out of plain crisps and chocolate powder for milkshakes and the restaurant ran out of ketchup!! Only 2 minor negatives in whas was a fab holiday. Perfect for couples off the holiday season or families with kids in shool holidays - we met several couples/families who had returned 3/4 years on the trot - speaks for itself !

Went to this hotel on recommendation of friends and weren't disappointed. It was everything that everyone has already said (including the 14 strong group that arrived and took over a bit - we were there that week too and they were a bit loud and intrusive). Our highlights were the Jeep safari (book through Brilliant Tours in Dalyan and ask for Icut to be your driver - he is hilarious!) and the 12 island tour. Great holiday in a great hotel on a lovely part of Turkey.

Our 6th visit to Alla Turca and 7th in total to Dalyan. As you may have guessed we like the hotel and place. Once again we were not disappointed.

From the minute you arrive in your room you can relax here, admittedly it does take us a while to get from reception to our room on arrival as we are greeted by all the staff we know as friends from previous visits. The owners have made improvements to the hotel over the years we have been visiting and this year these included new thicker curtains in the bedroom and finally Efes beer at the bar. This just makes the banter with Erhan (‘the trainee barman’) even more enjoyable.

Our room with free A/C and Safe overlooked the pool and mountains from one window and across to villas from the other, had a sun trap of a balcony and was kept immaculately clean with fresh towels everyday by our cleaner Birgul (Rose). She spotted the card for our anniversary in our room so then decorated the bed with flowers which was a lovely touch. All the staff are wonderful and I enjoy improving my Pigeon Turkish with them.

We stayed BB rather than HB this year for a change as we wanted to try some of the restaurants in town. The food in the hotel was once again very good. With a wide range at Breakfast including freshly cooked omelettes and pancakes. Dinner is a selection of Soup, Salads, hot fish & meat dishes and a wide range of deserts and we ate in the hotel twice (once being the complimentary voucher for your first nights dinner).The snack bar at lunchtime was also very good. Eating out we ate at Ramazan Han three times including our Anniversary (excellent food and service), Ali Babas (an enjoyable unique experience in choosing your meal from a chiller cabinet rather than a menu), ChinaTown (nice Chinese but not value for money) and snacked at Sevgi Gozleme on the Riverside walk into town (superb chips).

Excursion wise, we had a fairly quite week but started the week with a trip to the Haman down the road from Alla Turca which was very good and finished with our 7th 12 island trip (booked with Kaunos near the turtle roundabout).

Already planning next years visit.

Club Alla Turca exceeded all expectations given the low cost. The setting is just lovely - not too big but plenty of room for all the guests to spread out around the pool and gardens (although you still get a few idiot Brits who feel they have to get their towel down at seven in the morning to reserve their 'special' sunbed so they can frazzle to death all day).

We were fortunate to be upgraded to a family room but we did see in the standard rooms and they are of the same excellent standard but just a little smaller. The rooms have very tasteful furnishings, very clean and modern with a good size balony to sit and enjoy the evenings.

The staff were generally quite young and all really lovely - nothing was too much trouble. The buffet breakfasts were excellent - good variety of foods for all tastes. We had dinner at the hotel twice during our stay and both times had superb meals at a very reasonable price (also very nice to eat by the pool in candlelight).

The 10-minute walk into Dalyan is along the riverside - very well lit and maintained. It's a pleasant stroll to a lovely town. Dalyan has enough nice bars, restaurants and cafes to choose a different one every day for a month! The locals understandably want you to choose their restaurant but are very friendly and not pushy at all. A delightful, small town mainly geared to eating!!

If you're inclined to sunbathe on the beach, there is a 45-minute boatride from Dalyan to the coast (take the publuc boat as it's cheaper and nice to mix with the locals). However, although the beach has loungers and a bar, it's nothing special. I'd avoid the visit to see the turtles - rather than seeing these beautiful creatures basking naturally you actually watch a local guy with a fish on a line desperately trying to attract the odd one to come and nibble!!! However, I would recommend the night cruise on a local boat up river with the evening BBQ - very nice!

If you're looking for a quiet, upmarket hotel with a nearby, quiet and delightful town then this is the place to go in Turkey. However, if you're looking for a noisy nightlife with loads of activities for kids, then you're looking in the wrong place!!!

Have just returned from a 10 day stay at the lovely Club Alla turca in Dalyan.
On of our best holidays ever (married couple, early 50s) with terrific service, top quality food, well maintained and landscaped pool and garden area, great location and good rooms.
The staff of the hotel are obviously well briefed to put customer satisfaction at the top of the list, from the friendly and helpful housekeeping/maid service (extra pillows received within 2 minutes of my request, lovely touches with decorative petal arrangements when servicing your room!), the entertaining and efficient pool bar staff to the hard-working but cheerful and cheeky restaurant staff....5 stars to all, the management appears to value the guest feedback and act accordingly in the best interests of the guests.
The hotel is situated in a quiet area about 12-15 minutes walk from the small but perfectly formed town of Dalyan, from where you can get transport (bus of boat to most anywhere you are likely to want to). It is probably best suited to couples and young family groups rather than teenagers, being very much a relaxing, easy-going, layback environment rather than a buzzing, party-going atmosphere (and lets face it there are enough of those around to select from). Admitedly the peace and quiet of the previous week came to an end when an all-ages,14 strong, family group arrived shortly before our stay ended, as they good-naturedly but loudly staked their claim to territory. Other guests, like ourselves, quickly scheduled our pool breaks around theirs and adapted, I must add that there was no harm intended by the group, they were not unruly or badly behaved, it was just that they shattered the tranquility - an American football flying through the air across the pool soon made you think twice before going for a dip! However it did not take the gloss off the holiday and I fully accept that we all have differing expectations of our holiday and part of the esperience is the people you meet.
I am going to be less complimentary as regards our booking agent, Cosmos, with our hotel being designated no visits at all from the representative and the one promise they made regarding info on our flight home they didn't fulfill, so 0/10 to Cosmos.
Happy to give a 10/10 to Sardes Tourism for the day out we purchased from them, not because the trip was perfect as it was a bit of a cock-up, the point being was we politely reported back to them our dissatisfaction and their reaction was the best possible example of customer service you could receive. A gold star to them.
One tip though: make sure you have some cash on you if you want to eat or drink anything in Dalaman airport....incredibly expensive cup of coffee and bottle of water.
Overall an excellent intro to Turkey for my wife and myself and I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. .

We returned to the Hotel for a second time following our visit last summer. Everything about this Hotel has already been said in volumes. All I can add is that it fails to disappoint and is a gem. Enjoy it and Dalyan whilst you can. Will be returning next year to meet old and new friends.
