Although Lykia Botanika is a four-star hotel, bear in mind that Turkish four-star standards are not always compatible with what British guests may expect from such a rating. The resort is an all-inclusive one, with a total of 195 rooms set out on 40,000m² of land. The simple lobby is the gateway to this resort that doesn't try to be something it's not, however the service from some of the front office staff wasn't the most helpful or attentive we experienced.
The hotel rooms are found throughout seven three-storey blocks - white buildings fringed with bougainvillea and complemented by attractive gardens. Apart from the beach, most of the hotel's facilities are in the one spot, so it is very easy for guests to find their way around.
A large pool is flanked by plenty of sun loungers, while a small aqua park lies between the pool and the main restaurant. An outdoor stage only steps from the lobby is used for evening animation, and is also surrounded by a handful of small shops selling resort wear and pool toys, etc. On the far side of the pool, the health and wellbeing areas; massage rooms, sauna, a Turkish bath and various relaxation areas are simple and clean although they would benefit from a renovation to refresh their look. Guests may also hire a space with private Jacuzzi, plunge pool and mini Turkish bath.
Other facilities include a large, well-lit fitness room (during our visit it was in bad shape and "not ready" so we hope that it has since been tended to), ping pong table, and kids' club with shaded play areas and sandpits.
