Dalyan, Turkey: Holiday review

  • Dalyan is as good as it gets ...

    Review by: Mel & Kathryn

    Weather

    We've stayed two successive years (2011 and 2012) from late May to mid June. Occasional torrential rain, hot and sunny throughout

    Holiday

    Enjoyed it thoroughly as it combines perfectly the beauty and splendour of Turkey's scenery and ancient ruins with a laid-back resort with excellent transport links to airports, amazing beach and lake. The locals don't over-do the hassling to get your business.

  • dalyan as the turks call it - second heaven-

    Review by: Denis

    Weather

    We have been going to Dalyan for 12 years in May and October; it's cooler then.

    Dalyan is a peaceful, easy going village with country walks, boat trips, great authentic Turkish food, Roman town, turtles, fishing and most of all the residents of Dalyan.

    Go: you won't regret it.

    Holiday

    Always superb in Dalyan.

    It's a little piece of heaven on earth, with rock tombs, the famous turtle beach, the river.

    The weather was great. There is a lovely breeze that appears around midday that come's up through the valley and cools you down, it's wonderful.

    Holiday

    Beautiful.

    The river has lovely boat ride's. If you go to the left you go to the sea and beach, if you go to the right you go to the mud baths, hot springs and to a beautiful lake.

    It's a great boat trip, and you see big turtles swimming about in the in the river and in the big Lake ahead.

    It's a conservation area,very green and lush, I would not want to be any where else.

    We would recommend a private villa to stay in, we stayed in a viila called Kavak Evi. It was very private, the agent we went to was Turkevi Ltd, www.dalyanproperty.com, phone 00902522844444, ask for Kubilay Kececi.

    We went in September and stayed at the Asena Hotel and it was hot during the day but very pleasant at night.

    The sea was lovely and warm and it is a must to walk the beach,go down on the boat and get a Dolmus back.Watch out for the Kingfishers

    Holiday

    Dalyan is a wonderful small but friendly place with plenty of choice for restaurants ,shops and bars.Great for children(safe)

    Review by: R Harrison

    Weather

    I went for a week at the end of September and had just missed some dramatic storms.

    The weather was fabulous for us.

    Holiday

    We stayed at Villa Gol Manzara which we booked through dalyanvillas .com. The villa was great and the pool huge.

    Just a short stroll into the village. We also made use of the mountain bikes supplied by the owner. How great to be able to explore this lovely place.

    Beautiful with a lovely breeze every afternoon.

    The temperature in September is hot uring the day but cool in the evening.

    We had one day of rain for one hour.

    Holiday

    Absolutely fantastic.

    We stayed at the Asena Motel.

    Mine and Sezgin are fabulous hosts and their Turkish night should not be missed.

    Dalyan has fantastic beaches and is certainly for people who love beauty and nature.

  • Holiday In Dalyan

    Review by: Susan Young

    Weather

    Weather in May/June is better for us. Some days around 80 degress, some days higher! Also had a couple of cloudy days and some rain. Cooler at night which makes it more pleasant.

    Holiday

    Dalyan is such a great place. Nice bars to chill out in and not full of people like the larger resorts. Also only 20 minutes from Dalaman airport so no massive journey to your resort once you land. We stayed in Villa Samimi and got a really good deal for just two of us using the villa which would normally sleep 6. We've stayed there 3 times now and it feels like our own home. Did a jeep safara and the 12 Island Tour from Gocek and basically relaxed the rest of the time.

    HOT!
    Unbroken sunshine every day all day!
    Lovely cool refreshing breez in the evening, although still warm enough to walk about with only T shirt and shorts.

    Holiday

    If I say I have booked for 14 days this year same hotel - Keskin (flowers around the grounds out of this world) and cant wait to board that plane - I hope this communicates just how much I enjoyed my self last year.
    Made some great local freinds who I have kept in touch with and really look forward to seeing and chating to them soon.
    Resturant food great prices not to bad vast selection, fresh fish is fresh belive me im a keen angler.

  • Dalyan this autumn

    Review by: Steve Smith

    Weather

    I left 10 days ago and the weather was still in the mid 20s, unbroken sunshine!

    Starting to get a little cold at night but the restaurants had welcoming log fires when it was necessary

    Holiday

    Wonderfully relaxing place - do as much or as little as you like, you will still get so much from your holiday in Dalyan that you'll return time and time again

  • Dalyan, Turkey

    Review by: Mark Pudwell

    Weather

    The weather is always amazing. Very hot summers and very pleasant in the Autumn. During the summer months, the nights are very warm and without A/C could be a little uncomfortable. Most hotels and Villas do have A/C.

    Holiday

    The people are great, with a good sense of humour. Whilst they are all making a living out of tourism, they are neither threatening or over bearing when it come to shopping or even looking for a restaurant for the evening.
    Eating out is a wonderful experience. Local restaurants cater for all tastes and appetites. We found places that were full of the shop, bar and cafe owners from the resort and there is no better recommendation than that if its local cusine youre after.
    Exceptional value and great food.

    Weather wonderful.
    Great thing about Dalyan is that there is a slight breeze in the summer month which means the heat is not oppressive.

    Dalyan is a magic pace to stay.
    Beautiful
    scenery and friendly local people.Loads to do for anyone who wants an activity holiday but also a lovely gentle place to chill out.
