Reviewed 9 October 2012

So many complimentary reviews have been written for this wonderful little hotel that I don't think I can add anything original but I still wanted to add my accolade. This was our third, and final, hotel in a two week holiday and we stayed for a week. We just loved it. It met and exceeded all our expectations and we'd go back in a heart beat.
We stayed in the Pool Suite and it was very special. The room is large and comfortable and the private garden always had areas of sunshine and shade to meet any need. There are several different outside sitting/lounging options: sun loungers, a hammock, a day bed, table and chairs and, of course, the pool which whilst small was bigger than I had expected, definitely a little pool and not just a plunge pool. The larger hotel pool had a wonderful view of the beach and plenty of sun beds and seating.
The room was immaculately clean with a very good shower room with an interesting fish tank 'wall' separating it from the bedroom. The one way mirror to the loo took a bit of getting used to though!
The Pool Suite has a view of the sea although not the beach but this can be seen from many other areas of the hotel such as the pool and the outside dining area.
All of the hotel staff were delightful. They were friendly, professional and endlessly helpful. We celebrated an anniversary here and they made it very special indeed. The lady who comes to do the massages was also very good and definitely recommended. Mustafa runs a very efficient hotel with great charm and attention to detail.
The food was excellent and we enjoyed every single thing we were presented with from the delicious breakfasts to the very last mouthful of the lovely dinners. The evening menu was always discussed a day in advance and changes were willing made if required. There was a lovely ambience at the hotel with a good mix of mingling with other guests and enjoying our privacy. Mustafa managed this very well and the intimacy of this small hotel was very comfortable and never claustrophobic.
Olu Deniz is an experience in itself and if you don't have a good number of tattoos you might feel under-dressed there but this did not detract at all from our enjoyment of this gem of a hotel which is situated right at the end of the beach away from the bustle and entertainment of the town. We heard ocassional music drifting in but nothing to disturb us. Certainly don't be put off by the commercialisation of Olu Deniz or you will miss one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in on a lovely picturesque beach.
Dawn, the Exclusive Escapes Rep, was also excellent and very helpful. The gulet trip on our last day was just wonderful.

Room Tip: The Pool Suite is lovely and a bit special.

Just returned yesterday from our first stay at this hotel. Exclusive Escapes have a real gem here! Mustafa and his team plus Dawn and Monika made this a great experience for us. My initial concerns about the food (as it is half board) and the noise from Olu Deniz night-life were dispelled on day one. Being quite a foodie I can honestly say the chefs are outstanding and the service is second to none. We will definitely be returning to this hotel next year.

Room Tip: Room 4 terrace can only be accessed through the room so there can be no surprise visits when you are...

There isn't really anything to add to all the complimentary things that have already been written about this wonderful place. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable (room 5 particularly so), the setting inspired, the pool refreshing, the staff all smiling (genuine smiles) and Mustafa really does live up to his reputation - and how does he know what you want before you do? The food is delicious and plentiful (breakfast always brings a 'shall I do you one more?' from Mustafa, which it would have been rude to refuse.....!) and if you don't like the dinner suggestion for the following night, an alternative will be provided with no problem.
We were there the second week in Sep (also last year) and noise from the resort is minimal - it certainly wouldn't keep you awake at night. As soon as we got back we tried to book the same week for next year but had to settle for a week later as the rest of the month was sold out already for 'our' room!

Wonderful hotel, location was perfect, quiet and away from it all but near enough to Olu Deniz for a wander around. The food was so good and all the staff were excellent, especially Mustafa who couldn't do enough for us.On the recommendation of another guest we visited the Turkish bath for a massage but as it was slightly grubby and smelly we decided not to book any treatments there. The prices were the only attractive thing about this place! I guess you get what you pay for, as the Beyas Yunus own massage therapist, while a little more expensive was fantastic, and you could tell she was properly qualified. Don't forget to try one of Mustafas cocktails at Sunset !

We visited in June, so sorry for the long delay in writing. Without repeating what everyone else has said,the Beyaz Yunus really is a special place. The ambience is what you make it and whilst there is enough space to never really have to mingle with other guests, after dinner everyone tends to drift away back to their rooms. Saying that i you saw the huge seaview terraces, you'd understand why.
The staff are superb, everything gets done and somehow you hardly notice it being done.
The Exclusive Escape rep Dawne was kind, helpful and a credit to her company and all the credit given to Mustafa is well deserved.
I have to recommend a few things here :
Take a stroll through Olu Deniz down to the National Park side of the Lagoon.Its a lovely photogenic place and the small fee goes towards the upkeep
Spend the day on Kidrak beach but take everything you need with you, water etc as there are no shops or anything nearby
Avail yourself of the hotels massage therapist for a treatment in your room....I dont give praise lightly for massages but this woman knows her stuff and is infinitely better than what you will find down in Olu Deniz. She may be more expensive but you get what you pay for.
Mustafa's fresh juices in the morning,........delish
Sitting with a glass of wine in your own private (cold) jacuzzi on your terrace...bliss

It really doesnt get much better than this and we hope to return next year

My husband and I have just returned from a magical week spent in the delightful Olu Deniz. We were lucky enough to travel with Exclusive Escapes to one of their glorious properties called Beyaz Yunus. This property owes its success to the wonderful staff headed up by the ever present, ever resourceful, ever pleasing Mustapha. All the staff are to be recommended in their commitment to wonderful service, discrete presence and ever smiling attention to detail.
Room 5, the terrace suite with its superb views, spacious bedroom and magical bathroom was where we stayed and it is simply out of this world.Having said that all the guests ( there are only seven rooms in total ) felt their rooms were superb!
Each day at breakfast and dinner we waited with relish to see what culinary delights the chef would spoil us with, we werent disappointed! The package is half board and it is a suprise menu but believe me it is always a pleasant surprise!
Cocktails each evening were served at the bar with glorious views out over the bay with the moon rising over the hill making it a very special. The other guests were charming and you can choose to mix with or stay seperate depending how you feel. The week we were there we were very lucky to meet lovely people with whom we had great fun.
In the town of Olu Deniz, I can heartily recommend the Sanctuary Spa for a selection of massages. In particular I must mention Saadez ( the only female masseuse) and Yosef ( male masseuse who my husband used). Excellent treatments at very reasonable rates ( 25 pounds sterling for a one hour massage). The lovely Eleanor on reception was both pleasant and accomodating to our needs and timetable which made the whole experience very easy.

Room Tip: Each and every room is different and very beautiful, obviously we are biased towards room 5 with the...

Just came back today from a week at the Beyaz Yunus (White Dolphin) and already missing the place badly. We absolutely agree with all the excellent reviews this place has got!
Lovely place, excellent food, and Mustafa will pamper you in a way you have never been pampered before, guaranteed!

Must do: blue lagoon beach, paragliding, gulet cruise, mustafa's cocktails :-)

We were already thinking about returning there even before leaving the place!!

BTW, the exclusive escape organization is absolutely flawless. Worth it every penny!!

See you there?
