“ A well run hotel with minimum fuss. Value for money. Friendly staff. Good breakfast choices. Good sized pool. Lovely view from poolside. Lacks a little atmosphere in poolside bar/lounge in the evening. Situated away from the town centre/harbour - a pleasant walk down (20 minutes) but could be a strain going back uphill (35 minutes).8.4 Great

A well run hotel with minimum fuss. Value for money. Friendly staff. Good breakfast choices. Good sized pool. Lovely view from poolside.
Lacks a little atmosphere in poolside bar/lounge in the evening.
Situated away from the town centre/harbour - a pleasant walk down (20 minutes) but could be a strain going back uphill (35 minutes).
“ Top Tip: Cafe Aqua and Cafe Vita both fairly close (5 mins walk) worked hard to please and food good.
Jacky from Plymouth
“ Hotek has very large rooms. Stunning views. Breakfast best out of any iveseen. Quiet atmosphere. Cleanliness around the pool area could be better. Towels left around for days. Bits and pieces ariund beds could be picked up instead of left all night.
“ Top Tip: Kakamaki beach ckub very good
Stewart from Lincoln
“ Compared to the good 3* hotels we're used to, this hotel blew us away. The views from the room and pool were stunning. The room and the balcony were big with good aircon. All the staff were lovely and exceptionally helpful. I would describe the hotel as relaxing when we went end of august, as there were no organised activities. Food was excellent quality. The hotel is about 3km from town, but there are several free shuttles and I wouldn't trade any of the above for it's slight remoteness. To me this must be the best hotel in Kalkan.
“ Top Tip: Use the communal minibuses for transport and trips if you're looking for economy. There are regular minibuses along the coast from Antalya to Fethiye and beyond (the big coach at 10.30am).
Roderick from Edinburgh
“ Exceptional hotel with great staff who were very relaxed and helpful and well mannered and respectful to all. Great prices for everything and you could pay bill at end so meant you did not have to pay for snacks by the pool as you went along. Room outstanding with TV and air conditioning which was very necessary due to extreme heat and humidity at times. Room cleaned daily by very pleasant cleaning staff. The hotel provided return minibus travel to main town centre three times per day-great touch. I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel!
“ Top Tip: It was a little walk to main town with most of restaurants but plenty stopping places and watering holes, shops on way there. Kept you fit also.
