Me and the family was looking for something different than the usual beach holiday or staying in a large busy hotel. We had never been to Turkey before and found the Club Alla Turca in Dalyan. Reading about the location on the river, I thought it would be a little different than holidays we experienced in the past. After doing a bit of research on Dalyan and reading some good hotel reviews, we booked the hotel halfboard for the last two weeks in October 2010.
When we arrived at the hotel it was night time and received a nice friendly welcome from reception, we were more than happy with our room which was on the ground floor. In the morning we were really impressed with the selection for breakfast, the freshly made omelettes were great and the pancakes also went down well with our 6 yr old son! The pool area looked great and over the whole holiday we had no problem getting a space by the pool, although it was end of season and the pool was very cold in October. The hotel location is in such a picturesque setting with the mountain or hills in the background where the river runs along. Venturing outside the hotel and exploring we originally walked the wrong way out of town... Doh! So we were quite wrongly a little bit disappointed and thought we were in the middle of nowhere. Until we spoke to somebody and they pointed us in the direction of the walk by the river into the town which was very pleasant. The town has a nice square and play area to keep the children happy. Plenty of boat trips along the river are available to various sites which we would recommend. The mini bus service in town was really good value to go to the yellow sandy Turtle beach which took about 30mins. There's some nice restaurants along the river where we had a lunch on a few occasions and watch the world go by. The market in the town is also worth a visit, make sure you haggle ;o)
The hotel buffet style food in the evening was a very good selection of salads and main dishes and the sweets, especially the Tiramisu went down rather well! The hotel staff from the maids to the waiters and in reception were all very helpful and friendly. Overall it was such a relaxing holiday and we were glad we stayed for two weeks. The weather was a mixture and we did have some rain showers, but overall some really hot days. I can say it is one of the best holiday's we have had in years and would not hesitate to stay at the Club Alla Turca again... If it isn't already fully booked that is!
