    Location 10.0 /10

    In a private marina, in the centre of Ilica, 2 miles from Cesme and 50 miles from Izmir. To reach the hotel from Izmir airport, located 74.5 miles away, allow 1 hour.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    Half of the rooms overlook the marina (those on the ground floor have large terraces directly overlooking the quay); the other half overlook the gardens or the beach (for the new residences). Some studios have a kitchen. The standard rooms are large, in green and pink pastel shades, with wooden furniture and carpeted floor. They have a terrace, a pleasant bathroom with bathtub and hairdryer, telephone, satellite television, and adjustable air conditioning and minibar.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    Built in 1975 and renovated in 2001, the Dauphin d'Or has a multitude of white buildings (with 517 rooms), set at varying heights around a large private marina in the centre of Ilica. The complex, which is vaguely reminiscent of Monte Carlo, is centred around a port containing several yachts, with lawned terraces planted with palm trees, and a private beach situated 1,640 feet away. The interior decor of the hotel is classic and the facilities offer residents a high level of comfort. In terms of leisure and sports, there are high level of equipments, with the ample programme of the sumptuous thalassatherapy centre, and a relaxed but professional activity team. For purchases, designer boutiques and an art galery have set up in an open-air shopping centre.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    9 restaurants, including one fish, one Italian, and one fast-food. Some are open 24 h! The main restaurant prepares generous buffets in a beautiful space overlooking the marina. The variety of dishes is remarkable, with international cuisine, several Turkish specialities, and homemade pastries.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The small beach is 1,640 ft away on a beach bordered by trees and several second homes. It was a building site when we rated it (44 residences were built) so it was hard to give a positive assessment. Note the five tennis courts and the heliport.

    To know

    Open year-round. The clientele is mainly German and Turkish. With its private marina, the Dauphin d'Or offers a choice of boat trips. Thanks to the hot springs in the sea, you can swim all year round in Ilica.
