We have just spent a fantastic 2 weeks (13th -27th July 2009) at the Mehtap Hotel Dalyan which is within a 10 minute slow walk to the town centre and a vast array of great riverside restaurants serving traditional Turkish and, if you wish, English cuisine.
The Mehtap Hotel is located in a quiet part of Dalyan with the mountains as a back drop. This charming, small and friendly hotel is managed by Umit who speaks very good English and his wife Serap. We found them both very welcoming and hospitable.
We had a room for three people with air conditioning, which was cleaned daily. The young lady who cleaned our room added an artist touch with regards to the way the fresh clean towels were folded and displayed on our beds in the shapes of swans surrounded by purple bougainvillea petals. Fantastic.
The swimming pool which like the rest of the hotel is kept very clean always had plenty of sun beds and umbrellas around its perimeter. If you require a drink or lunchtime snack from the hotel there is a shaded area of grape vines for you to sit under relaxing and contemplating out of the rays of the midday sun.
We stayed on a bed and breakfast bases as we enjoy eating out at the local restaurants, however evening meals are available from the Hotel if required. Do try Umit’s barbeque evening which we found to be very reasonable and a great way to talk and meet with the other hotel guests.
In addition to the above as a small and friendly hotel, myself, my wife and our 15 year old daughter met some lovely Dutch, Turkish and English people during our stay.
To conclude a great hotel which deserves its TripAdviser “Travellers Choice 2009” award. My wife, myself and our fifteen year old daughter would highly recommend the Mehtap Hotel, for its high standards, quality of service, friendliness and value.
We will be back !!!
