“More than lives up to its great reviews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

My wife, our 5 year old and I stayed in the two bedroom suite with direct access to the pool and garden area by some steps.

Our suite was clean and well furnished, the beds comfortable and bathroom spotless.

The free wifi signal works well throught the property (even poolside) and the speed is good.

The pool and garden area is even nicer than the photos suggest and the small number of rooms means that it is never crowd. The pool itself was very clean and well maintained.

Day and night the service from staff was prompt, attentive and friendly - with nothing being too much trouble.

The food and drink is plentiful and of excellent quality - we chose to take our meals on the large veranda outside our suite but you can also eat in the covered bar area in the gardens.

The whole place has been designed by someone who knows what they're doing so it looks good and is a really relaxing place to spend time in.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family

The best aspect of this hotel is the very personal, and personable, service from all of the staff.
Our special thanks go to Murat (who worked exceptionally hard to cater for our every need) and
to Kenan for making sure we made the most of our stay and were comfortable. Additional
thanks go to Tarik (the night watchman) and Kenan, again, for helping out with some car
trouble we had.

Breakfast was a real highlight - we were able to eat this whenever we were ready and either in
the garden or brought to our room's terrace to enjoy the fantastic view. As well as the Turkish
staple breakfast items of olives, cucumber, tomatoes and cheeses (accompanied by fresh OJ
and tea/coffee) we enjoyed a variety of delicious menemem, gozleme, kaymak, yoghurt or
scrambled eggs. Murat also brought some special treats (fruit, etc.) for our 9mth old.
Altogether, it was a lovely start to each day - very relaxing and somewhat indulgent.

Due to our baby, we opted to eat at the hotel each evening - before arriving, our expectation
was that this might become a little bit dull, but we were pleasantly surprised by the relatively
sizeable menu of Turkish & international cuisine which is prepared by the in-house chef. We recommend the steaks, which were cooked exceptionally well, and the beautifully simple salads.

Our suite (honeymoon) was well-designed, spacious and met all our needs (and then some: jacuzzi; fridge/freezer; 2-sided fireplace). The cleaning staff dressed our room every day with new combinations of petal and/or towel designs on the bed (hearts, etc.). The pool was chilly but very refreshing on the sunny days we chose to sit around the garden, which is well looked after and has plenty of seating/lounging without being crowded.

All in all, we had a lovely and relaxing stay. We would thoroughly recommend.

Room Tip: Lower floors open out onto the garden, pool and outside dining area. Upper floors have separate ent...

We had a wonderfully relaxing time and were so well looked after. Kenan (the manager) Murat and Tarik manage to get the balance right - helpful and attentive, good fun but without being intrusive.
Every morning we looked forward to a magnificent breakfast on the large balcony of our Honeymoon Suite (50 years married and in our 70's.) And there is such a pretty garden with a lovely pool.
It's easy to get around by Dolmus. Although we went to other places including Bodrum, Yalikavak
was the right size for us. Not too big with many restaurants and enough to do - but we're not into nightlife. Downtown was a pleasant 20 minute stroll although in warmer weather ( we were 22 C) you might prefer to return by taxi (10 TL). One of our best holidays.

Room Tip: We enjoyed being upstairs

The owners of this small boutique hotel are very friendly and helpful and will do anything to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms were beautiful and the higher up you stay the view is better, and it is a beautiful sunset and sea view. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious and quite luxurious. The breakfast was just amazing and served at whatever time suited us. The hospitality, cleanliness and service would be hard to beat. You do need a car though as the hotel is in Yalikavak which is about 20km outside Bodrum. This was a beautiful stay and as we had a car it was no problem and we enjoyed the peacefulness outside of Bodrum. We would recommend this hotel. Again, the service and helpfulness was fabulous!

Room Tip: The higher up room has a beautiful view.

Murat and Kenan are doing a great job running this boutique hotel. Upon arrival, Murat was so accommodating and friendly. After a long day of driving after landing in Dalaman, Murat was kind enough to show us around the hotel and the Honeymoon suite. He even took us down to the grocery store in town. Fair warning to all american's that come to Turkey... they drive very aggressively!! I ended up getting into a minor fender bender just about 100 yards from the hotel and Murat came down and helped sort everything out. He spent over 3 hours making sure that I got all of the information I needed for the car rental company etc. He is just the best!!! After everything got settled Murat took me and my friend into town to the most amazing fish restaurant. He even came back and picked us up. I cannot even explain how kind he was.

The room was amazing and the views even more amazing. The next morning Murat served us a traditional Turkish breakfast including gozleme (my favorite thing on the trip) on our patio so we could enjoy the breathtaking views from our room. Pammuke (Murat's cat named Cotton) even joined us and kept us warm. We were there during off season and even then we felt like the hotel was comfortable and accommodating. We wish we could have spent more than one night at the hotel.

I never write reviews but this hotel deserves 10 stars. The hospitality, cleanliness, and service were unmatched during the rest of our trip in Turkey.

Room Tip: Honeymoon suite has breathtaking views

A lot of excellent reviews have been said, I am not going to repeat myself here, but need to share my feelings. We stayed four nights in the honeymoon suite for the New Year's. Best of the best personal service we have received up until today in the world! Everything is more than perfect, words cannot tell, you need to live it. Breathtaking location! We sipped our wines on our terrace and watched the sunset behind the sailboats at the marina in the evenings, and woke up in love listening to the humming birds. The suite is so beautifully and carefully decorated. Kudos to the owner couple!!! We stepped in to our suite and fell in love at first sight. There is everything more than you may need. and it is sooo artsy!!( Oh, those paintings on the walls:)) .Definitely sensational, and soul feeding!!! But what makes this place a wonderland is talented Mr. Kenan !!!! Impeccable service from Kenan Bey and his staff! They are truly "obsessive" about customer service, We could not ask for anything. All was there before we could ask for.He started guiding us a day before our trip, welcomed us on the highway!! Yes on the highway! Anytime I called, he would know what I had called for and made it happen immediately.I would call him on the way back from dinner and without saying a word he would know I was calling for the fireplace to be lit. We have so many dreamy memories and fantastic images in our hearts and souls. All in all, two thumbs up! If you like being pampered like a king or a queen or a royal couple, highly recommend this place! We will definitely come back very soon. Go and splurge yourselves. That is what we did;) Thank you so much Kenan Bey ! Yakinda tekrar gorusmek uzere sevgilerimizle Dilek- Maurice Danon

Room Tip: take room number 2:)

This is a small and very charming boutique hotel set in beautiful grounds with a pool and shady bar area; there are fantastic views of the sunset and the sea. it's well-located between Yalikavak (famed for its seafood) and the hurley-burley of Bodrum. The family suite in which we stayed was modern, stylish and spotlessly clean, providing a calm and relaxing place to unwind after a day's sightseeing.

However, what sets this hotel apart is the quality of service from both the manager, Kenan, and his assistant Murat. Nothing was ever too much trouble and, when my wife had a serious medical emergency (requiring us to extend our stay in Turkey), both went over and above the call of duty to assist us in getting the best possible care for her.

I would conclude by highly recommending this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the area. It is a small haven of calm, backed up by extremely friendly and helpful staff.
