Aydos Club Hotel Turkey, Dalyan

This intimate waterside hotel, set on the banks of the Dalyan River, has long been renowned as a small hotel of excellence for its friendly and attentive service.

Simpson Travel was delighted to add the Aydos to our collection of small boutique hotels in 2011 particularly as it lies in one of the most stunning locations in south western Turkey – a conservation area known as the Dalyan Delta.

Comfortable and unpretentious, Aydos Club has been run for the last 15 years by Rahmi, a man who epitomises the role of an attentive host aided by his loyal staff, many of whom have worked with him for many years. Nothing is too much trouble and the atmosphere and ambience here reflect the hotel’s measured pace of life.

To complement this extraordinary place of just 20 split-level rooms is the hotel's stylish Ottoman river boat, the 'Aydos'. Each morning it can be found wending its way down river to the stunning Iztuzu Beach with those Aydos guests who wish to savour the delights of this astounding spot – a haven for the loggerhead turtle – whilst in the evening it can be seen sailing with romantic couples or families who wish to dine by candlelight on the river beneath the illuminated Lycian rock tombs.

The rooms offer light and comfortable accommodation with a second bedroom/lounge upstairs suitable for children or couples for sleeping or relaxing.

  • We had a great time at the Aydos Hotel in Dalyan, Turkey. Rhami and his team were friendly and hospitable as always. The boat trips were very good and our two teenagers especially loved jumping off the side of the boat into the sea. Thank you to Jessica the Simpson Rep who did an excellent job and always helpful. Thank you to all. The Southall Family. Mrs Southall - August 2016

  • We booked a late decision stay at Aydos Club in Dalyan. As others have commented, Rahmi and his team are superb hosts - nothing is too much trouble and their friendliness made the stay so relaxing. The hotel, pool and grounds are attractive and spot on for a simple relaxing week - not too long a wander into Dalyan on the river path and Rahmi arranges some excellent excursions. Would thoroughly recommend for a 'chill week' with options to wander and take boat trips etc. Mr Sims - September 2015
  • Golden Key Beach is wonderful. The room was beautiful, colonial meets modern, with a wonderful view of the gardens and sea. The restaurant was amazing with so much choice and the staff were very attentive. The position of the hotel was excellent for exploring the Bozburun Pennisula. Thank you to Ayten, our rep., for all her guidance and little maps. The image of the sunsets will stay with us for a long time. A superb hotel. Mr Hyde - September 2015

Their enthusiasm and love for South West Turkey definitely rubbed off on us. Ms Lord - August 2015

  • Just back from a week in Turkey, Dalyan staying at the Aydos Club Hotel, 2 teenage girls and parents we have all had an amazing week, from the minute we arrived at our departure airport Simpsons ensure we had a hassle free holiday, transfers were seamless and the hotel everything we had been promised. The staff were committed to us having a great time, Rahmi the manager arranged great trips, swimming in the lake, BBQ on the boat and the mud baths one evening, a tour of the local ruins, with Rahmi guiding followed by hitting the beach when no one else was there and another meal on the river, cooler box full of refreshments another evening. Our first Simpsons holiday and our first Turkey holiday but certainly not our last. Thank you to all at Simpsons. Mrs Hewing-Powell - July 2015
  • From booking the holiday in the cold and dark of february, planning, spending a lovely week in the sun to returning to the UK in July the whole experience was excellent. Staff, travel and hotel were all well above what we expected. Aydos Club is a little gem. Will definitely use Simpson Travel again and, in fact, my wife has already recommended them to her colleagues. Mr Batterham - July 2015
  • I cannot recommend Simpson Travel highly enough. Our week at the Aydos Beach Club in Dalyan was a perfect getaway. The location was stunning and Rahmi and his team will do everything they can to ensure that you get everything you need. Our rep, Jessica, was also fantastic and any queries/problems we had were dealt with quickly and efficiently. The cleanliness of the hotel and pool area was outstanding and meals in the restaurant were excellent. Mr Bellis-Jones - June 2015
  • We have just returned from a wonderful week at Aydos Club Hotel. Rahmi and his staff understand customer service and are faultless in their efforts to make your holiday as enjoyable as humanly possible. As a pensioner I have experienced dozens of holidays, but I have never met before, a manager with real hands on involvement with his guests. He deserves a medal, as do all of his staff. Fabulous location, pretty venue, great food and welcoming staff. Mr Williams - June 2015
  • This was our first time using Simpson Travel. We found the local tour representatives (Jessica & Jenny at Aydos Club, Dalyan) very friendly and attentive as was the hotel owner, Rahmi Baser and staff. We did feel there was a more personal feel to the holiday, from start to finish, in the way we and everyone was looked after which made the experience even more enjoyable. We will certainly be using Simpson Travel in the future and highly recommend you to family & friends. All ready looking to re-book a second visit to the Aydos Club Hotel, Dalyan later this year. Many thanks for a great holiday. Rob & Claire Mr Raymond - June 2015
  • If you want a relaxing stay with excellent service try the Adyos in Dalyan. Mrs Lister - May 2015
  • From our first phone call to Simpson's to arriving home, we received excellent service. This really made our holiday easy and we will be using Simpson's in the future. Ms Oliver - May 2015
  • The Aydos Club is the best place I have ever holidayed that provides friendliness, good company, relaxation, boat trips, good food and great service from arrival to departure. Brilliant. Mr Hogan - May 2015
  • We were looking for a short relaxing holiday, and discovered Simpsons Travel by chance. We found just the break we were looking for, and have just enjoyed a great week at Dalyan, in Turkey. The information, booking, travel, hotel, and Simpsons representatives were excellent throughout, and more than met our expectations. Highly recommended. Mr Woolley - May 2015
  • Aydos club hotel delightful property fantastic staff. Mrs Moyse - May 2015
  • First guests of the season...so well cared for by Rahmi and the team! Having breakfast on the lake was amazing, so was the beach, and the trip to Kaunos with barbecue on the boast watching the sunset - wow!! It's been a fantastic week, we've loved it all..thank you. - May 2015
  • A perfectly positioned hotel, with both the beach and lake available for sunbathing and birdwatching! The service at the hotel was superb, and Rahmi provided such a good service it felt like you were honoured friends in his house. Mrs Taylor - October 2014
  • This was our first holiday with Simpson Travel, and we were very impressed with the personal service, type and standard of accommodation and the friendly atmosphere. We will certainly be booking again! Mr Gould - September 2014
  • Great holidays at sensible prices. Simpson look after you from beginning to end yet also manage to appear 'low key' whilst you are there in that there is no pressure to do or be anything you don't want to do or be - the holiday is simply yours to enjoy. Hotels are small, consistently good quality and we recommend them to everyone we meet. Dr Taylor - September 2014
  • The Aydos Club at Dalyan is "Home from Home" to so many guests year after year. Rahmi and Olgan and the staff are all wonderful. The setting is beautiful, among the mountains and on the river, creating more photo opportunities than you could imagine. The garden creates a haven of peace and tranquility, where you can watch the boats going up and down the river between the lake and the beach. Mrs Dawson - September 2014
  • Our first experience with Simpson Travel was superb. The dedicated check in at Gatwick was just fantastic. Miss Buchanan - September 2014
  • This was a great holiday for a family with teenage girls. The pool area is lovely, town is an easy 15 min walk along the river path, with a vast number of restaurants and plenty local shops to explore, and the boat trip to the beach is a novel experience. The hotel is well kept and the staff are very friendly and attentive. We all agree we'd go back again! Mrs Burleigh - July 2014
  • Another brilliant holiday at Aydos Club. Since our last visit the hotel has undergone a few improvements - brighter rooms, 2 proper single beds and a full wardrobe upstairs, Wi-Fi , Tea and coffee making facilities and hairdryers in the rooms but don't panic ..Rhami and Olgan are still there providing a relaxed , friendly and fun environment for your holiday. Nothing is too much trouble and the trips along the Dalyan river are as relaxing and interesting as ever- a week just isn't long enough! - July 2014
  • 2 weeks in a fantastic location for those who want more than a beach - who love history, nature, scenery - all from a friendly hotel, with ever willing staff, fantastic management in a wonderful setting. The Simpson staff could not have been more helpful and supportive in suggesting tours, restaurants and ideas to get the best from our holiday. We will very likely return to Dalyan again but will certainly use Simpson Travel again. Mrs Barker - June 2014
  • excellent holiday , brilliant location , friendly staff , what more do you want. could not fault a thing. Thank you for a great holiday Mr Browning - June 2014
  • We usually travel independently and were very pleasantly surprised by our trip to Turkey with Simpsons - we enjoyed having all the travel and transfer arrangements taken care of whilst being able to 'do our own thing' if we wished. Simpson's ensured that we had a relaxing break in a delightful hotel whilst giving us the freedom to 'dip in and out' of any of the excellent activities that they offered. Mrs Thornton-James - June 2014
  • Very relaxing holiday. Well organised quality excursions. Idyllic riverside setting. Mrs Chapman - June 2014
  • Rahmi and his team are excellent and nothing is too much trouble. the service is excellent and we would certainly recommend this holiday and hotel to all our friends. The boat trips are excellent and add another dimension to the stay there. A thoroughly enjoyable and very relaxing holiday. Mr Bowness - June 2014
  • I wanted to send a general message about our holiday last week in Dalyan. It was the first time we had used Simpson Travel or visited Turkey but thoroughly enjoyed it. The whole experience from booking the holiday with you to leaving the airport to come home was excellent. The service we received throughout has been efficient and professional and we will certainly hope to use your company in the future. Mr Powell - May 2014
  • Lovely friendly accomadation. Small enough to get to know staff & other holiday makers but big enough for privacy if you want it.. Stunning location. Great trips - you must have breakfast on the boat -magical! Mr Mitchell - October 2013
  • Aydos Club is a wonderful hotel. Rahmi and his team are the best holiday hosts we have met in a very long while- nothing is too much trouble, and everything is delivered with fun and a friendly smile, as well as very high standards of customer service. We would recommend Aydos Club very highly. Ms Shorter - October 2013
  • We had another fabulous holiday, the Aydos Club is a lovely place to relax. Rahmi is a perfect host and the staff are very helpful. Although we were there in the middle of October the weather was amazing. Mrs Stevens - October 2013
  • My Simpson Holiday in Dalyan was one of the nicest weeks I have ever spent away from home. Everything was laid on just as promised both on the website and by the sales consultant. Simpson staff were attentive and extremely helpful both in the traveling and at the resort. We found the room, restaurant and pool well suited for my husband's restricted walking.We will certainly be returning next year. Mrs Pick - October 2013
  • a very memorable experience for our first holiday as a couple without the children in over 20 years! It's easy to see why Aydos Club hotel has so many repeat visits - they have everything just about right!! Mr Rogers - October 2013
  • We would definately use Simpsons Travel again for future holidays.We were very impressed by,not only the professional way that everything was executed but by all the little extra touches that make you feel special and individual which is a rare attribute these days. Mrs Flynn - September 2013
  • We had a wonderful holiday and are now defnitely Simpson converts! Ms Corcoran - September 2013
  • Our second visit to the Aydos was just as good as the first , in other words excellent. Mr Powell - September 2013
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our fortnight at the Aydos Club in Dalyan. The location was perfect - right next to the river where you could sit out of the sun and watch the boats go by. The trips organised by Rahmi and the team were great - we did most of them but our favourite was the evening boat trip which encompassed swimming in the lake, a great BBQ on the boat, covering ourselves in mud at the mud baths and then sitting in the hot thermal pool at the end of the evening. The hotel is also a short walk away from the main town of Dalyan where you can visit local restaurants and my husband quite enjoyed his experience in one of the local Barber's. You must also experience a Hamam - all in all a very fab time and we were very sorry to leave! Mrs Bliss - September 2013
  • It was so good, we did it twice! And will again - so impressed with Simpson Travel, their attention to detail is superb. Dr Taylor - September 2013
  • We had another great holiday at the Aydos - our third now. Mrs Hepworth - September 2013
  • We found our first holiday with Simpson Travel to be "outstanding" from the initial enquiry through to the destination and hotel itself, it far exceeded our expectations and we are really looking forward to exploring the other destinations they recommend, backed with the reassurance that we can trust their expert judgement and we won't be let down. Mrs Evanson - September 2013
  • The Aydos hotel was a truly wonderfull place and the staff are lovely. Simpson travel was great and hassle free from start to finish. Would deffinately use them again. Mr Parr - September 2013
  • What we liked about Simpson Travel, as a first-time client,was the subtle support we were given from start to finish. We felt we were treated as individuals, not just members of a large group, Your logo - The Road less travelled impressed and appealed to my sense of intrigue! Mr Rosier - September 2013
  • The Aydos is a magical hotel which people find themselves returning to time and again. The reason is the location, of course, but primarily due to Rahmi, Olgun and all the staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Mrs Dawson - September 2013
  • We've just returned from our holiday at the Aydos Club Hotel. It was our first experience of Simpons Holidays and of Turkey and we would highly recommend both. The hotel was just what we were looking for - small, quiet, family friendly, friendly and professional service, fantastic pool and a lovely riverside position. Our two sons (aged 7 and 9) played for hours in the pool and fishing in the river and made many friends. Rahmi and his staff were all wonderful - and the day and evening trips were trully memorable experiences. Miss Dispirito - August 2013
  • The Aydos Hotel offers the traveller a stunning setting with fabulous views in a peaceful surrounding. However it is close enough to Dalyan centre to enable the visitor to truly experience Turkish life. Our 7 year old daughter enjoyed a Turkish spa, a mud bath and a day snorkelling off the islands. A wonderful holiday in a lovely small hotel with super staff, a great pool and lovely food. Almost don't want to recommend as its a great secret!!! Mr Herring - August 2013
  • The hotel staff are excellent. Ramhi the manager makes everyone feel special. The size of the hotel keeps the experience intimate. This is important to us, we would not want to go to a large hotel which seems impersonal. Mr Mackenzie - July 2013
  • The Aydos club is perfect.. a real home from home. The ambiance is unique , feeling like a gathering of old friends carefully and sensitively managed by Rhami and his team. A genuine piece of of paradise. Mrs Ebery - July 2013
  • The hotel was well kept. The gardens and surrounds were well tended and all the staff were friendly. The manager was very personable, very accommodating and very flexible. He organised a range of outings at a comfortable price and the use of the hotel boat for trips to the beach was a nice touch. The hotel had a good location, reasonably central yet reasonably private and the rooms were very comfortable. Many of the other guests were returnees who were very happy with the family care. Mr Rennicks - July 2013
  • The Aydos Club Hotel has a beautiful setting on the banks of the Dalyan River. The manager and staff are incredibly efficient and friendly and really work extremely hard to ensure that guests have the best possible holiday. The walk from the hotel into the town is along a river bank walk and is lovely - even quite shady during the day. Dalyan town is a casual place - not overly sophisticated - but has enough decent restaurants/bars. The hotel manager runs his own boat trip excursions. These are enjoyed by the guests - in fact we met other guests who were on their 7th return visit to the Aydos! I really do not think you will be disappointed! Ms Shaw - July 2013
  • This was our 3rd time to the aydos, the best yet and it keeps improving year on year. it is an amazing hotel in a fantastic location, very friendly staff who are very welcoming and plenty of things to do while you are there. The hotel is great for families with trips organised which are suitable for any age and brilliant fun for everyone. Mr Jones - July 2013
  • We had a wonderful time in both places, but Rami at Aydos is brilliant at his job we would definately go back to Dalyan Mrs Baumann - July 2013
  • From start to finish everything was perfect, the staff, the hotel, the people and the place. We had a magical week and have memories we will never forget. Watching my husband and daughter swim in a lake surrounded by such beauty and no one else in sight will stay with me forever. Makes me teary thinking about it. Dinner on the edge of the river with flowers strewn over our table and an oil lantern was incredible. Thanks so much x Mrs Coath - June 2013
  • Dalyan is a lovely town with very friendly residents. Getting the boat to the beach was a unique and memorable experience. The setting of the hotel was lovely. Mrs Giltrap - May 2013
  • Our most relaxing holiday ever, everything exceeded our expectations. Thank you very much Mrs Schorah - May 2013
  • Our first holiday with your company and very impressed. Thank You Mr Strobridge - May 2013
  • Would highly recommend The Aydos Club Hotel. A small family run hotel in a beautiful setting, next to the river. Rahmi and his staff are so welcoming and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. If you are looking for a relaxing break but with a little culture mixed in, then this is the place for you! Mrs Marsh - May 2013
  • Our holiday to Aydos Club Hotel was just perfect. Olgun was particularly helpful and friendly, and the meals in the restaurant in the evenings were wonderful, with lots of choice. One night, they even surprised us by setting up our table by the river, decorated with candles and fresh cut flowers from the garden. How romantic! Mrs May - April 2013
  • Rahmi and his excellent team at Aydos will ensure that you are well looked after during your stay and will leave the hotel with a smile on your face Mr Barnett - October 2012
  • I cannot fault the service we received from Simpson Travel in the Uk and in resort. Aydos Club was an ideal location for our family group of 10. Something for everyone which is quite an achievement when we had an age range from 4 to 74! The hotel setting is beautiful. The staff and manager did all they could to accommodate everyone's requirements. My children announced that this is the best holiday they have ever had and are already begging to go back. Thank you very much. Mrs Hill - October 2012
  • Perfect - that is pretty much all I can say about our experience with Simpson for our holiday. The quality of the accomodation and the attentive service that we received were beyond our expectations. Please keep it up and expand your locations!!! Ms Downing - October 2012
  • Our first experience of travelling with Simpsons exceeded our expectations both in their service and the hotel we booked through them. Their representatives couldn't have been more friendly and helpful both when booking the holiday and the Rep on site at the hotel. We would definitely look at them first when booking our next holiday. Mrs Barnett - October 2012
  • Thank you so much - we had a fabulous holiday. Mrs Funnell - October 2012
  • As usual a perfect site situated in a part of Turkey which is unspoilt.Every little item that an English traveller would hope to see in the accommodation thought about & the choice of privacyavailable.The local staff have the same intention to ensure a very peaceful & enjoyable holiday. Mrs Sharkey - September 2012
  • This was our second holiday to the Aydos Club in Dalyan this year , it really is a little bit of heaven , Wonderful Staff and location , cant wait to go back next year . Mrs Aldous - September 2012
  • Our representative, Jessica, was exceptional. Friendly, very knowledgable about the area as she lived there. She was always happy to help guests at any time of day and also happy to talk to you if she was in town with her family. She was always happy and smiling. The Aydos Club hotel treated everyone as a big happy family and ran excellent excursions. The standard of service was very high and the food was consistently top quality. Mrs Walker - September 2012
  • A perfectly managed hotel in an exceptional setting - a real dollop of paradise. Rhami, his team - Olgun and all staff play a huge part in the success of your holiday. Brilliant! Mrs Jerrard - September 2012
  • Having got engaged on the Aydos boat with the rock tombs as a backdrop in 2011 we decided to go back there for our honeymoon this September. Rhami and his staff were as friendly as ever and we enjoyed another 2 weeks of relaxation, good food, good company and a few fun boat trips as well. We will be back! Mrs Hepworth - September 2012
  • excellent service, excellent accomodation, perfect relaxation. Mr Rogers - September 2012

  • Aydos Hotel Lovely location,very friendly, walking distance to town of Dalyan with lots of Restaurants on the riverfront local shops and a good Saturday Market.30mins by hotel boat to sandy beach,which does get a little crowded,pleasant beach bar with all amenities. Mr Sweet - September 2012
  • A visit to the Aydos Club Hotel in Dalyan Turkey is a delight. We spent a week there in early July with eight family members of various ages and interests.. Everyone found something to do all week long that they enjoyed. The excellent staff was a special part of the pleasure of the holiday. Many family members said it was their best holiday ever. We enjoyed our time so much that my husband and I returned in Sept. and still had lots of new experiences around Dalyan to keep us busy as well as time to rest around the spacious pool. Mrs Chase - September 2012
  • We really enjoyed our visit to The Aydos Hotel. Whilst not 5 star luxury, it is clean, cool and comfortable, with lots of space for the children upstairs. The hotel is small enough for the children to go to and from the pool to the rooms independently and the complimentary coffee all morning was good quality and much appreciated! Sitting by the river made a nice change on a holiday and the trips arranged by the hotel were excellent and enjoyed by all of us. Most of all, however, it was the friendly attitude of the manager, Rahmi and his staff that made this holiday special. The Golden Key is in a beautiful location, and room 102 that we stayed in has to be the best suite we have ever occupied - huge and tastefully furnished with oodles of storage and a separate en-suite for the kids. In addition to the pool and beach there is table tennis and table football and a climbing frame with swings on the lawns. The immediate area of The Bozburan peninsular is breath taking and we found some fantastic places to have dinner amongst the yachts whilst watching the sun go down. Magical. Mrs Gillece - August 2012
  • We simply could not have had a nicer holiday. The Ayos Club hotel was friendly, comfortable, with a lovely pool and very good food - great weather, within walking distance of the local town, and some lovely trips were organized as well. The holiday was also exceptional value. All in all, we were very impressed - it was a wonderful two weeks. Mr Clifford - August 2012
  • Thank you for a fabulous holiday experience. We would recommend anyone to use Simpson travel. Mrs Dhokia - August 2012

  • Just a thank you - we had a lovely time. Mrs Bailey - July 2012
  • This was our first trip to Turkey and will not be our last! The Aydos offered so much more than we could have hoped for. The staff were so attentive and welcoming, the hotel was spotlessly clean and the location superb. All topped with the amazing boat - so relaxing! We just didnt want to leave THANK-YOU! Mrs Dellar - July 2012
  • Thanks for a good holiday. Mr Glaysher - June 2012

CHILD CONCESSIONS
Children aged 2-11 years are eligible for concessions of between 5%-25% of the holiday price. This is offered at most of our self-catering properties depending on departure dates. High season dates are excluded. Two full paying adults must be travelling in order for child discounts to apply. For further information please call our sales consultants.

INFANTS
There is a charge of £75 per infant (under 2 years) on all our holidays. Travel cots and highchairs are provided free of charge in our self-catering properties, however, some hotels may charge for these items and we will advise you of any extra costs at the time of booking. Many hotels offer reduced rates for children if they share the same room as their parents.

PLACING AN OPTION
In order to allow you to co-ordinate your holiday arrangements with friends and family, in many cases we are able to hold an option for up to 24 hours before confirming your booking.

PAYING FOR YOUR HOLIDAY
In order to confirm your booking a deposit of £225 per person is required unless you are booking accommodation only in which case 20% of the total holiday cost is required (30% for Exclusive villas). However, if we need to buy in flight seats especially for your booking, we will ask you to pay a higher deposit to include the cost of the flights. This payment is non-refundable. The balance payment for your holiday should be paid at least 10 weeks prior to your departure. We accept most debit cards and credit cards, and personal cheques. All payments made by credit card will be subject to a 1.25% charge* reflecting our incurred costs. (*American Express is subject to a 2% charge.) Multi-centre holidays incur a £25-70 per person administration fee.

Please familiarise yourself with our full booking terms including our cancellation policy here.

TRAVEL INSURANCE
It is compulsory that all our guests have comprehensive travel insurance and we will need full details of your policy at the time of booking or before you travel.

FINAL DOCUMENTATION
Your travel documents are available to download and print 2 weeks prior to departure provided you have paid in full, completed and submitted Advanced Passenger Information and car hire details (if applicable). Please note if you are travelling with Ryan Air you will only be able to download your boarding passes approximately 7 days before departure due to the airline's check-in requirements. Should you prefer to receive your documents by post, please ask us at the time of booking.

PASSPORTS AND VISAS
British passport holders travelling to Turkey require a tourist visa in advance of travel. The visa is issued via the Turkish Electronic Visa Application System at the following website www.evisa.gov.tr and is charged at USD20. Please refer to www.evisa.gov.tr or the Turkish Consulate if you do not hold a British passport. Please note that passports need to be valid for six months or more from your return date to the UK.

FLIGHT INFORMATION
Our prices are based on our lowest contracted fare. Occasionally it may be necessary to purchase flights outside of our normal allocation and in these circumstances we may need to charge an additional supplement to reflect the extra costs incurred. This will also be the case if we are booking flights from regional airports or on flights where we do not have a seat allocation. If a supplement applies, this will be advised to you at the time of booking.

API (ADDITIONAL PASSENGER INFORMATION)
Most countries require that the airline take additional information from each passenger such as full name, date and place of birth, passport number, country of issue and expiry date. You will need to provide this information at the time of booking or, at the very latest, prior to release of your travel documents. You are able to complete the details online via Manage My Booking or call a member of our Pre-Departure team.

NAME CHANGES
The name shown on the itinerary must exactly match the name of the passenger travelling as it appears in his/her passport (first full name and surname). If not, you may be refused boarding. Once your flights have been booked, it is not usually possible to make name changes without incurring substantial charges. If there are any errors on your invoice or itinerary, please inform us immediately.

FOREIGN OFFICE ADVICE BEFORE YOU TRAVEL
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office provides up-to-date travel information to help British travellers make informed decisions about travelling abroad. Should you wish to check their advice or information about the destination you are travelling to, please visit their website: www.fco.gov.uk/en or call 020 7008 1500.

FLIGHT DELAYS
In the event of a flight delay, whenever possible we will ensure that the airline/operator communicates the reasons for and extent of any delay and implements appropriate standards of welfare provision. EU carriers should also comply with EU Regulation 261/2004 in the event of delays, cancellations or denied boarding and guidance is provided on the CAA’s website www.caa.co.uk

CAR HIRE INFORMATION
Most of our holidays include an air-conditioned hire car, to be collected from and returned to the airport (or port where applicable). The category of car included in the basic holiday price will vary according to the number of people in your party. We do not consider infants as part of the total party size. The cars we have included offer comfortable seating for the size of party travelling, however, we do ask you to take into account the size of the boot space for your luggage if any infants are in your party, and the number of child and baby seats required. You may wish to upgrade your car to give you extra comfort and space. Availability and supplements for upgrading will be advised at the time of booking. For transporting extra luggage it is also possible to pre-book a taxi at additional cost.

We cannot guarantee that you will receive a specific make or model.

INCLUDED IN YOUR CAR HIRE

  • Unlimited mileage
  • Local taxes and compulsory insurance
  • Two main drivers. Please note that there is a minimum age for drivers (minimum ages vary from 21 to 25 and can be advised at the time of booking) although there is no maximum age limit. Drivers must hold a British/EU Driver’s Licence or International Driver’s Licence, held for at least 2 years. You will not be able to hire a car without your original, valid Driver’s Licence which you must carry at all times when you are driving. Please also take the counterpart of your licence if you hold a photo licence.

Unlike many other countries, our car hire in Turkey also includes:

  • Tyres (excluding punctures)
  • Windscreen, wing mirrors and undercarriage (you should not drive off-road)

CAR INSURANCE
Please note that in most cases you will need to pay an excess in the event of theft or damage to your hire car, regardless of blame. As amounts and conditions vary, please ensure you ask for full details at collection, before you sign your car hire contract.

The insurance with or without the excess will not cover:

  • Personal Accident Insurance (this should be covered by your personal travel insurance)
  • Any damage, loss, accident, theft, attempted theft, etc caused by your own negligence, for example, driving under the influence of alcohol, unlawful driving, driving off-road, using wrong type of fuel, unlocked doors, apparent personal effects, etc.
  • Loss of or damage to car keys (and costs incurred due to this, for example towing and replacement keys, etc.)

CAR HIRE DEPOSIT
The car hire agents will require you to lodge a credit card deposit when you collect your car. No money will be taken if you return the undamaged car at the correct time with the correct amount of fuel and not requiring cleaning.

CHILD SEATS
Child and baby seats (forward facing seats only are available) can be provided if booked at least 2 weeks prior to your departure and are charged at £2 per day. Please remember to specify the age of the child. Local car hire and Simpson Travel staff are not authorised to install the child seats and as style and installation may differ to those in the UK, you may prefer to bring your own child seat for your own peace of mind.

TRANSFER INFORMATION
Please refer to the information at the top of the page for details of the transfers included in the cost of your holiday. Taxis are licensed and insured to carry up to 4 passengers. Therefore, if there are 4 passengers and an infant then 2 taxis are needed and we will provide you with a separate quotation. If you are travelling with young children or babies, child seats are not provided for any vehicles used for transfers. For your own peace of mind, we recommend that you bring your own although there is no guarantee that local taxi companies will allow the use of child seats. Please note that the transfer times included in our accommodation details are approximate estimates only and do not include any waiting time.

 

ACCOMMODATION AND USEFUL INFORMATION
 

Air-conditioning and heating 
We have indicated in the property descriptions which accommodation has air-conditioning included in the holiday price. Heating is available in some of our properties during the low season weeks, which is normally included in the holiday price.

Animals and wildlife
As in all rural communities, indigenous animals are an essential part of the way of life. The braying of a donkey, crow of a cockerel or the barking of a dog is not a complaint that receives much sympathy from the locals! Care should be taken to minimise the presence of insects and animals in your accommodation. Keep surfaces clean, dispose of refuse regularly and ensure that food is not left uncovered. Cats and dogs are often resident where an owner or manager lives on the property. If you are allergic to cats and/or dogs please ensure that you check the suitability of your chosen accommodation with us prior to confirming your booking.

Barbecues
We have specified if a barbecue is available at your accommodation. Please note that often in summer, due to the hot weather, use of your barbecue may not be allowed and/or strict rules for its use may apply. The local or national government reserves the right to introduce new rulings at any time, often with little prior notice, prohibiting the use of barbecues to reduce the risk of fires. Where a barbecue is not provided, it is usually because the surroundings are considered a fire risk or inappropriate for the use of barbecues.

Beach/pool towels
We provide Simpson Travel beach/pool towels in all our self-catering properties and Simpson Hotels, and these are normally laundered weekly. 

Beds
Please note that a double bed could be two single beds placed together. Double beds usually measure 140cm x 190cm and single beds 80/90cm x 190cm. If you are booking a hotel room, please let us know your room preference (double or twin). Although we will make every effort to convey your request to the hotel, we cannot guarantee your preference will be available.

Check-in and check-out
You will usually be able to occupy your villa, apartment or hotel room after 4pm and you must vacate it on the day of departure by 11am. Most of our hotels follow common practice with regard to check-in and check-out times (around midday); however some have later check-in times between 3pm and 5pm.

Cleaning
Self-catering accommodation is cleaned a minimum of twice a week (including arrival day) and some accommodation may be cleaned more often. Cleaning usually consists of a sweep, mop, bathroom and kitchen tidy up. 

Distances and timings
Please note that all walking and driving times stated are approximate estimates only. Transfer times are also approximate estimates only and do not include any waiting time.

Health and safety
Simpson Travel is committed to raising the standards of health and safety throughout all our destinations. Our guests’ safety and wellbeing is of the highest importance to us. However, please note that since many of our properties are private homes, it is not always possible to meet the same exacting standards as in the UK. In your accommodation we will provide any necessary health and safety information. We ask you to familiarise yourself with this information and the property on arrival, particularly when travelling with children, and to raise any concerns with your local representative.

Internet access and wifi
Internet access and wifi is available when stated in the relevant accommodation description details. Please note there may be restrictions with the availability and speed of the service transmitted by the local provider and technical issues may cause temporary withdrawal of internet facilities. We are unable to accept responsibility for any down time or consequences of using this service and refund/compensation cannot be offered due to circumstances beyond our control such as adverse weather conditions.

Linen and laundry
Bed and bathroom linen is provided and usually laundered twice weekly. For your convenience some of our properties have a washing machine.

Noise and building works
Traffic, farm work, roadwork, animals and other sounds form part of everyday life, however, what constitutes ‘noise’ to one person may not be a problem for another. Please let us know if you have any special needs regarding this. Occasionally, building work is unavoidable as we do not control such work and may not know about it in advance. Whenever possible, we will notify you of any work that we believe may affect your holiday.

Occupancy
Only guests named on your invoice are entitled to occupy the accommodation.

Plumbing and power
In some properties, the plumbing system is not designed to have items flushed down the lavatory. Where necessary, bins are provided in all bathrooms. Throughout Turkey power cuts can arise from time to time, due to electrical storms, for example. Power is normally restored quickly.

Satellite television
We cannot guarantee that a full selection of satellite channels will be available. Channels in English may be very limited and these are often only CNN or BBC World.

Seasonal facilities
Some facilities are subject to weather conditions and the general season, for example swimming pools, restaurant terraces, pool bars, local restaurants, and they may be limited or unavailable at the beginning or end of the season. Please do not hesitate to check with us, should a particular facility be a necessity to you.

Security and cleaning deposits
For self-catering properties, we require you to lodge a security deposit against any breakages, damage, losses, extra cleaning or outstanding accounts, which you may have incurred during your stay and/or due to your negligence. This should be provided by credit or debit card at the time of booking by providing authorisation for us to deduct (within 14 days of your return home) any advised charges from your card. Most of our properties are the owners’ personal homes and repairs, replacements and extra cleaning can be very expensive, so we do ask you to take care in order to avoid incurring extra costs.

Swimming pools
Swimming pool details are given on our website. Pool dimensions are approximate only and, unless specified otherwise, pools are freshwater and unheated. Dates when pools are operational are subject to the prevailing weather conditions at the time of opening and closing and we cannot be held responsible if poor weather means the pool is opened later, or is closed earlier in the season. Upon arrival at your accommodation, we kindly ask you to acquaint yourselves with the pool’s safety and hygiene rules.

Very few pools have covers, fencing or life rings, so children must be supervised at all times. Some pools are ‘infinity pools,’ which have an exposed pool edge with an unprotected drop. This maximises views and is an attractive feature of the pool. We recommend that children are supervised and that you do not sit, lean or walk on the unprotected edge.

Pool heating is a service that can be provided on a weekly basis in select properties. The cost varies according to size of pool from £100 to £200 per week. As a general rule pool heating will only bring the pool temperature up by approximately 10 degrees higher than the night time temperature. As such in early or late season you may still consider the pool temperature to be too cold despite heating. We regret that should this be the case Simpson Travel, our local agents and owners cannot refund monies paid for this facility.

Villa owners
Whilst the owners or staff of some properties may live on site and tend to the grounds, they are aware that you value your privacy, and will do their best not to intrude. We do ask you, however, to allow them reasonable access to the property so that they can maintain the grounds and keep them in good order.

Welcome Pack
We offer a welcome pack in all our self-catering accommodation.  This usually includes the following complimentary items: coffee, tea bags, milk, bottled water, fruit juice, bread, wine, local beer, pasta, pasta sauce, regional biscuits, savoury snacks, cheese, washing powder, washing-up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing-up sponge, salt and pepper, sugar, vegetable or olive oil, vinegar, mixed herbs and toilet paper.

Guests at the Korsan Suites and Dalyan River Suites receive a small selection of staple items.

Our choice of Turkey properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide.

We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
