“Magic place”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

I have never been to the same place more than once but after visiting with my friend Helen two years ago I was determined to return again with another friend Chris to share the wonderful magic of the place. I'm not sure what the ingredients are for a holiday but it certainly suited my pallet. Its a smallish place 8-10 rooms but has a rally friendly atmosphere. Erean and Cathy who run the place can't do enough for you to make your stay enjoyable. Although there are a lot of things to see around Dalyan I became more drawn to staying by the pool or in the gardens chilling, which is surprising as i am a fidget. I am planning to return again soon and this time hope to bring a few people for my big birthday so they to can enjoy the experience of the
individual unique place

We are just back from a wonderful holiday at the Dalyan Garden Pension. It's easy to see why so many people visit again and again - a beautiful garden to relax in, a fabulous pool and a delightful position on the edge of the village which makes for easy access to some lovely rural walks. The easy 20-minute stroll into the village is a pleasure in itself. Our room was spotless and very comfortable and the breakfasts were feasts (eggs, cheese,tomatoes, olives,fruit, bread,jam and more) eaten at tables scattered in shady spots around the garden. There are snacks like omelettes and salads available at lunchtime if you can't tear yourself away from the pension and in the evening the bar is a focal point if you want company. With just ten rooms the atmosphere is very friendly but there is plenty of space to be private if you wish. Ercan does everything he can to make sure you have a good time and is always available for advice and to book excursions etc but is never obtrusive. We can't wait to return to the Dalyan Garden - many thanks Ercan and girls! Mike and Madeleine

We've just returned from another lovely visit to the Dalyan Garden Pension. This is a first class pension with everything you require for a tranquil relaxing holiday. The rooms, which all look over the beautiful garden and pool, are spotless and very comfortable with fresh towels, air-con, hair dryers and even a sofa in the larger rooms. Breakfast is plentiful and served outside in seating areas within the beautiful garden. The pool is very large with plenty of sunbeds with cushions and umbrellas for everyone. The well-stocked bar serves a great selection of lunchtime snacks, ice-creams and drinks and is a very sociable gathering place in the evenings. The weekly BBQ is not to be missed with the opportunity to meet other guests, the food is plentiful with a great selection of mezes followed by fish, chicken or meat cooked on the large BBQ in the garden. Bikes are available for guests to use. Ercan is happy to share his wealth of information about the local area and will happily arrange boat trips etc. Cathy and Ercan have created a really lovely pension, where nothing is too much trouble and their hospitality is second to none.

The Dalyan Garden Pension as you might guess from the name takes great pride in its garden. It is a beautiful spot to relax. The rooms are all very comfortable and the pool perfect for the hot weather. It is run by a Anglo-Turkish couple who are very welcoming and attentive hosts always trying to help you make the most of your stay. We will definitely look to return.

We had a week at the Dalyan Garden Pension and could not have been more impressed with the quality of the accommodation, the beauty of the lovely gardens and huge pool. Our hosts Cathy and Ercan extended a level of hospitality and helpfulness which during our stay which went well beyond what one could reasonably expect. We don't normally tend to return to places we have stayed but will certainly make an exception in this case. In a word, outstanding.

Room Tip: Our room was first floor but all rooms have great aspect

We visited as a treat, for a real getaway - our first time in Turkey. I didn't even take my phone! And what we experienced was nothing short of magical.
The hotel has 8-10 rooms/apartments (i think), all based around a tempting kidney bean-shaped pool and ultra-colourful garden which is a testament to the owners' constant tending. It's a really beautiful oasis.
There's so much to commend really - friendly owner Ercan really knows the area and is the first point of call if you want to know a good restaurant, where to go on the bikes (free!) or just want a drink at his well stocked bar (near the pool). He also cooks a mean barbecue.
We were there for around 10 days, and did everything from boat trips and mountain top restaurants in the middle of nowhere (great sunsets) to meals in town and cycle rides to pomegranate plantations - all on his recommendation - and he was never once wrong.
The apartments were spotless - and commendation should also go to his team of housekeepers who were always more than happy to help and super friendly.
We'll always be tempted to go back - this was exactly what we wanted, although the fear now is that whatever holiday we go on next, it might never live up to Dalyan Garden Pension!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are good for views, downstairs ones excellent to get to the pool and bar.

If you are expecting tea and coffee making facilities, sky TV and all the facilities of a four star hotel then perhaps this is not for you. If you want to be in the centre of town then this is not for you either. But if you are happy with clean attractive rooms, beautiful gardens and a lovely pool topped off with a wonderfully convivial atmosphere then you will not be disappointed.
This year we are breaking our golden rule and following in the footsteps of many other guests who return year after year to this lovely pension. (We actually stayed here in September 2012 but there was not the facility on here to back date reviews).

The staff are delightful and take their lead from the friendly and convivial owner, Ercan, who remembered all of our names from day one which just added to the warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Normally we avoid hotel gatherings like the plague but we attended the barbeque on two occasions and it was huge fun, tasty food and a great atmosphere. We went out twice on Osman’s boat which we hired for ourselves at a very reasonable price. Osman took great care of us, showing us the best places to snorkel and finding a deserted beach where he moored his boat and proceeded to prepare a delicious lunch which he barbequed over the edge of the boat. His boat is not modern or well-equipped like some that you may find on the Dalyan river– rather it had two upturned chairs with cushions placed at the front where we reclined and felt like Cleopatra as we traveled down through the beautiful reed beds with Osman’s Turkish music playing in the background. Great fun.

The centre of Dalyan is a fifteen to twenty minute walk or a three minute taxi ride away and here you will find a lovely selection of restaurants along the river. Some good shopping to be had too. Turkish Kilims and cushions and bags.
The restaurants are very reasonably priced and we ate out on many occasions both at lunchtime and in the evening without worrying about blowing our budget. Turkish food is delicious. We also had ‘take away’ which Ercan ordered in and spent fun evenings drinking and chatting with other like-minded guests and with Ercan himself who runs the bar in the garden.

The pool is beautiful, large and crystal clear with plenty of sun beds and set in a beautiful garden where there are many shady places to escape the midday sun and where you can be entertained by the resident cats and their kittens.

One of the most relaxing holidays we have ever been on.
