No 22 Riders' Inn
Ranked #7 of 21 Akyaka B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 July 2013

This was my second trip to Akyaka/Gokova for a kitesurfing/relaxation holiday with my girlfriend. We wanted somewhere a bit more lively than the sleepy boutique B&B we stayed in last year so we selected Riders No. 22 from the reviews.

The place is awesome, a great B&B with a pool, kitchen and best of all a bar with ice cold Efes or Bomonti beer, or as my girlfriend made full use of, the amazing cocktails. Note they do one of the best mohitos! The owners, Senem and Doruk are awesome and always very welcoming and friendly. The staff make this place amazing. The chef is so friendly, the barman too and the waiter/barman/gardener/handyman who arrived a couple of days into our trip was one of my favourites, remembering every morning without me asking for a fresh orange juice and a coffee. Legend!

The hotel is ideally situated in the town, away from the hustle (well as hustled as Akyaka gets!) but close enough to walk to the inner town restaurants and the amazing fish restaurants on the way out of town. It is also so easy to walk to Gokova beach if you are a kitesurfer.

One thing I loved about the hotel was that there were a lot of locals, kitesurfers and holiday makers who stayed at the hotel but also came to eat and drink there in the evening giving it an awesome atmosphere. Everyone chats away and makes friends. It's great.

I could not recommend this place enough. The town is amazing and beautiful. The food fantastic. It is far away from the horrible places such as Marmaris. The wind blows everyday and the people are very friendly. Watch out for the driving skills of the locals though!

I am DEFINITELY going back to Akyaka and I am DEFINITELY going to stay at Riders no. 22 again.

Room Tip: They are all good and kept very clean.

This was my second stay in Akyaka having visited last June, and I am delighted to have found such a great place to stay, particularly due to the fact that I was kiteboarding , although I would have been happy to stay there if I had not been.
Doruk and Sanam are the most friendly hosts you could hope to find , and the food and service was probably the best I have encountered anywhere in the world.
This will definitely not be my last visit to this beautiful place.
Thanks Guy's for making my visit so memorable.

No.22, run by a lovely couple, Doruk and Ece, both with previous experience from the professional corporate world, first established the legendary Big Bite at Akyaka, and have now established the notorious B&B, No.22. This has been one of the best discoveries I had during my stay in the gorgeous, quiet resort town of Akyaka, Turkey, home to the most well kept secret of the Kite world; with the constant thermal winds of the Gokova Bay.

This small, cozy establishment, mostly used by travelers, backpackers and kiters from around the globe immediately create a communal feeling of long time friends even if you are a total stranger. Everyone is very accessible, easy to talk to, helpful and are there to have a good time. The parties and BBQ gatherings add to create a family feeling like no other stay I experienced in Turkey. These people will make you feel like you are home away from home, while kiting, or exploring the gorgeous natural beauty of Gokova Bay. Owners are both kiters and world travelers and know everyone in the area and can recommend the top trainers, local food and places to go.

One of the best experiences after a day of kiting, is to dip in the Azmak river, a cold, natural river flowing near the hotel. It's a great way to relax after a hard day of kiting.

Looking forward to my next visit.

Room Tip: Ask for the balcony rooms. Let them know if you are the party type, or prefer the nice and quiet.

A friend and myself stayed here in September, 2012.
Predominately a hotel for Kite surfers, who travel from other parts of Turkey, UK and elsewhere.
The team who work here were friendly, helpful and after travelling for about 6 weeks before arriving here, it was a good place to indeed chill out for a while.
My room was on the ground floor, it did have a balcony, though no view other than some rubbish in the yard.
They served a turkish breakfast each day, olives, cheese, fresh bread and each day something different.
Good coffee for an extra charge.
Would return again to enjoy time in Akyaka, where the river meets the sea.

Room Tip: A room upstairs at back of hotel would have a good view , and possibly be quieter than the front
