“We'll Definitely be back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2009

This was our second stay at the Dolunay Apartments and it certainly won't be our last.
The poolside area and gardens are fantastic and the location of the apartments ( a 10 minute walk from the centre of Dalyan) ensures that it is peaceful. An added bonus for animal lovers is the proximity of a lot of Dalyan wildlife ( not to mention the resident dog which likes to walk into Dalyan with guests !)
The owners can't do enough for you and the little snack bar serves delicious homecooked food. The apartment was adequate and clean albeit scruffy but there is a new block being added this Winter and the current apartments are being refurbished throughout.
Dalyan itself remains as enchanting as ever and , despite the presence of a garish Karoake bar, retains it's unspoilt charm.
We will definitely come back to these apartments again.

Firstly, Dalyan is an amazing little town. Very friendly, fantastic restaurants and beautiful scenery.
Secondly, Dolunay Apartments are fantastic value for money. Yes the furniture in the apartments are basic (apparently being refurbished soon though), but for the cost of the holiday we really can't complain and spent little time in the apartment anyway.
The pool side area is perfect.. clean, well maintained, a good atmos and a kiddies pool too.
Gochan, the son of the family who own the place is a hero.. He does everything and with no moaning at all. His family are very friendly but speak little English.. perhaps we should speak more Turkish as we did feel at times more like guests in their own home they were that friendly.
Their Turkish food is perfect for lunch or tea if you are staying around the pool and the policy of 'help yourself to a beer and we'll put it on your tab' was greatly appreciated. (i still owe for all my Efes.. joke)
The rooms are cleaned every other day and even though it was hot weather, we got by without needing the air con which is 5 lira a day.. we're back in July hopefully, i'm sure we'll need it then.
Finally, our fellow guests were as friendly as the owners.. with there being just 10 apartments (possibly 15 by next year), their was a real close knit atmos and one where you could trust everyone there and leave your belongings around the pool and your door open etc.
You won't be surprised when i say, I'd strongly reccommend Dolunay for a holiday whether you are a couple or family with young or older kids... Just don't book yet, cos we haven't for next year yet.

Just returned home from Dalyan. The Dolunay apartments are quite large for Turkey, basic but perfectly adequate. They consist of 1 bedroom with a large living/kitchen area. The bathroom has a shower. The rooms are cleaned daily. All of the apartments overlook the pool area. As it is a small complex of only 10 apartments there was never any problem getting sunbeds. The pool was lovely but has no shallow end - there is also a children's pool. The staff are very helpful and looked after us and our constant demands well. The apartments are about a 10 minute stroll from the centre of Dalyan. Our party of 16 (all family) had an amazing holiday. This was our second stay at the Dolunay apartments (unusual for us as we don't usually go back to a place as there are too many others to see). During both of our stays here we have met a really nice family who have returned every year for the last ten years! The staff here must be doing something right! We will probably return again in a couple of years. Definitely recommended. PS: If you take a laptop you can log onto their internet for free.
