    Location 4.71 /10

    Dalyan Resort is found in the river town of Dalyan, about a 20 minute drive from Dalaman Airport.

    Accommodation

    There are 58 rooms at Dalyan Resort: 16 standards, 16 suites, 2 VIP rooms and 24 deluxe rooms. The suites and standards are all found on the ground floor and boast small terraces. The deluxe rooms are all found on the top floor and due to local government restrictions, they do not have balconies.

    Rooms are simply but classically furnished in a cream/ivory colour scheme. While the rooms are clean, comfortable and quite spacious, their plain looks mean they do not match the standards of the rest of the hotel. We did however appreciate the spacious bathrooms with large vanity and hydromassage shower (suites and deluxe rooms only).

    Overview

    Dalyan Resort is an intimate boutique property popular with a European clientele. Built in 2004, it is relatively new and well-maintained with only 58 rooms. Entering the lobby is like walking into a tastefully decorated home; furnishings in natural materials and objets d'art create a cosy-chic ambiance. Outside, the landscaped gardens are magnificent. The hotel's owner has a green thumb and has planted bougainvillea, orchids, pomegranate, strelitzia, roses, orange trees, olive trees, palm trees, zambak and gazella, amongst others. The large free form swimming pool is at the heart of the hotel, while there is also a separate kids' pool.

    Further back is a cosy TV/meeting room decorated with stunning objets d'art, a fireplace and flat screen television. The floor to ceiling windows allow for views over the Dalyan River. The riverbank is only a few steps away, where, nestled in the gardens are a few sun loungers and chillout seating areas. A river path leads guests to other riverside relaxation areas such as a small jetty with a bench perfect for kicking back with a book and a cuppa...or perhaps something a little stronger! From the river's edge, guests have some of the most prized views in Dalyan; those of the town's famous Lycian tombs.

    The hotel itself consists of three discreet, two-storey buildings with terracotta roofs. The building closest to Reception contains standard rooms on the ground floor (eight with pool views, eight with garden views), while the second and third buildings feature suites on the ground floor. The top floor of all three buildings contain deluxe rooms.

    Meanwhile, other facilities include a tennis court, and a health and wellbeing facility with a Turkish bath, sauna, well-equipped fitness room and massage room. The fitness room is free, all other facilities mentioned above require extra payment.

    Food and drink

    Dalyan Resort operates a half board meal plan in summer and B&B the rest of the year (low season). Being a small hotel, there is not a lot of bar/restaurant choice. There is a charming pool bar featuring hand-painted ceramic details and a multi-coloured mosaic, as well as a bar inside the restaurant, where ship models are wedged between bottles of Bombay Sapphire and Baileys. The restaurant is found inside a circular building with floor to ceiling glass doors that are opened in warm weather, which is when the dining tables spill out on to the pool deck. Bright and casual, the restaurant also boasts lovely river and garden views. However, it does get crowded and noisy during peak meal times and the fairly limited buffet selection means there is sometimes a wait. Considering the above average standards of the rest of the hotel, not only the variety but the quality of the food was somewhat disappointing.

    To know

        One of our faves in the Dalaman region, a haven of peace and tranquility

      • Advantages

        The serenity! Riverside and Lycian tomb views. Immaculate gardens. The large pool and funky pool bar.

      • Disavantages

        At least a 15/20 minute walk to the village. Rooms a bit plain/bare and small restaurant that gets noisy with a limited buffet selection.
