Date of stay: June 2015Trip type: Travelled as a couple
It is not very easy to rate this small nice boutique hotel for many different reasons but to be fair I will give 3.5 out of 5.
This hotel is being run by a half Scottish-half Turkish couple. The owner's wife is the cook here but know that she is a very accomplished award winner one in the UK.
The couple seems to have settled here after retiring themselves from their highly successful restaurant chain back in Scotland. (Rendezvous at Nargile, Aberdeen).
The quality of the DINNERS clearly reflect the outstanding dexterity of the cook.
This is a very small hotel but extremely clean and taken care of very well. There is high speed wi-fi available even from the very far corners of the beach until your room. The rooms are super-clean, the view is excellent too.
The owner couple is always on top of everything here. But this place is not totally problem free. Service personnel is not very professional although they are friendly and kind. They need more training.
The sea is crystal clean and turtles will be swimming with you gracefully.
Although the dinners are truly excellent, the quality of breakfast is not in line with the extremely high quality of the dinners. In my opinion the hotel should pay attention to add more organic local food to their breakfasts. The mastery of the cook Mrs. Karen is truly outstanding.
Mosquitos can be a problem sometimes too. Please ask for a electrical mosquito repellent device from the owners before you move into your room which is used simply by plugging into the wall socket.
Another problem with this hotel is that they accept families with small children and if your aim to experience pure silence in your holiday, this hotel may disappoint you because of the echoing screams and yells of small children on the beach. I would advise the hotel management to put signs on the beach area to invite parents to restrain their children to be silent.
Room Tip: Chose a room with balcony with sea view.
