Mediteran Hotel Turkey, Kalkan

Perched on a hill just above Kalkan with breathtaking views of the bay below sits the Mediteran Hotel where owners Ahmet and Halil welcome guests to their picturesque hillside haven to experience real Turkish hospitality. Most of the light and comfortable suites and rooms have private balconies or patios with beautiful sea vistas whilst a stunning infinity pool allows for lazy days soaking up the afternoon sun. Just below the pool terrace, bathed by the soft lights of Turkish lamps, romantic soirées can be enjoyed at the hotel’s superb restaurant.

The walk down to lively and sophisticated Kalkan with its irresistible bohemian atmosphere is a mere 15 minutes, however the return journey can take a little longer and taxis are often the order of the day.

Part of any relaxing stay here can be combined with visits to the extraordinary historic sites of Letoon, Patara and Xanthos, all nearby and where history takes you back to another era. But it’s always comforting to return to this haven after a day’s exploration to enjoy a favourite drink or dine whilst watching the horizon over Kalkan turn a gentle pink and the distant lights of the town sparkle below.

We loved the boat trip, swimming with turtles in the bay at Indigo, the lovely fresh food ... everything really! Go there! Mr Holden - August 2016
  • We had a delightful holiday in Kalkan, a place welcoming visitors with warmth, great hospitality and many picturesque views. The Korsan Suites are light, spacious and comfortable and are well placed providing great views. But it is the staff that made our stay so special as nothing was too much trouble for any of them who worked very well as a team. Their daily enthusiasm, conversation, advice, catering and housekeeping were exemplary. We hope we will be able to return. Our overall impression of Simpson's is of a company paying attention to the detail of things and providing services to a high standard. Thank you. Mr Hiller - July 2016
  • Simpson provided us with the most incredible holiday. Nothing was too much and the standard of everything, was exceptional. Mrs Moore - June 2016
  • We had a brilliant week at the Mediteran, everything was perfect. The staff were brilliant and looked after us very well as did Kirsty our local rep. The hotel is so well laid out with an absolutely fantastic view. We were quite happy to just laze by the pool and take in the view. Our suite had just been upgraded and it was amazing. Kalkan has everything you need and some fantastic restaurants. A visit to the Turkish bath is a must. Just book it and go, you will love it. We will definitely book with Simpsons from now on. Thank you and keep up the good work! Mrs Wells - May 2016
  • Fabulously looked after by Simpson's, we will use them again. Ms Lewis - October 2015
  • Great company Simpsons, from start to finish, and all points in between, food, comfort, location. Our second holiday was as good as the first. Will book again. Thank you. Mr Buzzell - October 2015
  • Our stay at The Mediteran Hotel in Kalkan was everything that the website had promised and more. This small family run hotel had a relaxed but efficient atmosphere and the staff were always ready and willing to offer advice and excellent service. Kalkan is a small but stylish resort with numerous wonderful restaurants-we were spoiled for choice. We loved the relaxed and laid back feel of the town and were surprised and delighted by the range of shops and services available; the Turkish people are delightful and so warm and welcoming. The town is an ideal point from which to travel easily to visit the ancient Lycian ruins and excellent sandy beaches of Patara. A day trip to Kas was also great fun and we loved the small cobbled streets of the old town with its beautiful artisan craft shops. A day trip on a gulet was a superb way to sail around to nearby bays and swim in the cool and refreshing waters and the on board lunch was delicious. We will definitely be returning to Turkey again. Mrs Palmer - October 2015
  • This was our first holiday booked through Simpson Travel - we will defenitely use them again. The whole service from booking,help with visas through to transfer to the airport for our return flight was exceptional. We also met lots of really nice like minded holidaymakers who had also booked through Simpson Travel Geoff and Chris Mr Renshaw - October 2015
  • Simpson Travel very known and thought of in Kalkan. A wonderful trip from start to finish with perfect weather too! Mr Waller - October 2015
  • Our 2 week holiday in Kalkan, Turkey with Simpson Travel was absolutely superb.Everything went very smoothly resulting in a really relaxed break. The perfect package at the right price, faultless. Mr Lisney-Smith - October 2015
  • Simpson travel once again did it for us at the Hotel Mediteran Kalkan it was our fourth year and still as perfect as the first time around the family that own and run it cannot say enough about them (could be here all night) the rep Chris 3stars and of course the star of the family 'Badem' wouldn't be the same without him. recommend this hotel to anyone who asks Well done Simpsons and congratulations. Pam and Mick Jagger Mrs Jagger - September 2015
  • Simpsons are an excellent tour operator. We have travelled with them many times and completely trust that any holiday we book with them will be to a standard that we are happy with. Staff in the office are always very helpful and all resort staff are also great. The Company is small enough that service is still valued and I feel that feedback is listened to and passed on to their partners. I have no hesitation in recommending Simpson Travel. Mr Parker - September 2015
  • We had an amazing holiday - resort, hotel and flights were all excellent. Mrs Wakely - August 2015
  • After a very busy year, the Mediteran in Kalkan delivered the perfect holiday experience. We were able to make the most of the sites and sounds of the town centre whilst retreating to the peace and quiet of the hotel nestling in the hills just a few minutes away. Many happy an evening was spent at the sunset bar with what must be the very best view looking down on the town and harbour, totally brilliant. Jude & Ian - Tunbridge Wells Mrs Wheeler - August 2015
  • Simpson Travel always give us wonderful holidays, with their choice of country/villa/hotel, their organisation, their recommendations of what to do whilst on holiday, and so much more. We always highly recommend them. Mrs Hawes - August 2015
  • Our fourth holiday with Simpson and never disappointed. Think of your holiday wish list and you will find that in one of Simpson's holidays - small, friendly hotels situated in the most perfect places and managed by the most affable and helpful staff Mrs Tushingham - August 2015
  • A lovely hotel with friendly and efficient staff, good food and lovely views. Perfect for a relaxing holiday. Mr Foster - July 2015
  • Our first time to travel with Simpsons, excellent experience. It is rare for us to use any tour operator but our experience was such that we will definitely use Simpsons again, flights, checking in at airports, transfers, representatives at location, accommodation and place, all quality; high class! Miss Coleman - July 2015
  • We found Simpson Travel to be most professional in all aspects and the Hotel Mediteran to be a beautiful place to stay to enjoy the delights of Kalkan. Such friendly staff and locals made us feel very welcome and we will certainly be recommending Simpson, Kalkan and Hotel Mediteran! Mrs Jones - July 2015
  • Mediteran was an excellent hotel, made special by the friendly staff, stunning views, relaxing and spacious pool area, lovely bar and great food. We were also very pleased with flying from terminal 5 and the BA flights - good service and terminal 5 was very pleasant. Mrs Richardson - July 2015
  • Thank you Simpson Travel for another wonderful holiday, we were extremely well looked after and the view from the hotel will stay in our memories for the rest of our lives! Mrs Mason - July 2015
  • We have travelled with Simpsons many times because they provide the relaxed holiday we seek. All arrangements are made efficiently and work well. They listen to customer feedback and strive to ensure each year is better than the last. We never feel herded or inconvenienced: I believe Simpson Travel genuinely wants their customers to have the best experience possible and its the small, thoughtful touches which impress. We look forward to experiencing many more excellent holidays through Simpson Travel. Mr Etkind - July 2015
  • A perfect holiday in all respects. Good flight times and the hotel was perfect in every aspect. The staff could not do more for you but in a very nice unobtrusive way. Will be booking again. Hadn't holidayed in Turkey before but Kalkan is certainly a very beautiful place. Particularly recommend the Indigo Beach Club for swimming - the most beautiful turquoise sea we have ever seen. Mr Wordsworth - June 2015
  • Our first visit and it was absolutely beyond our expectations. Staff were polite and always on hand and helpful. Room kept beautifully clean. Chris, our representative was most professional and knowledgeable. Mr Marshall - May 2015
  • Our second visit - we had a wonderful holiday here in the Mediteran. What a great hotel and wonderful people. Mr O'Dwyer - May 2015
  • Another terrific Simpson holiday at another spectacular location. With an unrivaled position, great staff and a most relaxing atmosphere. The Mediteran met our expectations and more. Thanks to all the team - and to the Turkish people who we found, without exception, to be the most welcoming. Mr Gregory - May 2015
  • First visit - lovely place, lovely people, we had a truly relaxing time. Many thanks to all concerned. Mrs Pringle - May 2015
  • The Mediteran Hotel has been fabulous for our first stay in Kalkan. The staff have been incredibly helpful and couldn't do more for us. The hotel is very clean and kept well with amazing views. Food and drinks really good too! Kalkan is a lovely place and we will definitely visit again soon. Mrs Rowberry - May 2015
  • A wonderful week in Kalkan. Lovely town with fab views, restaurants and bars. The hotel is superb - food, drink and staff all brilliant! Thank you everyone for all your help and friendliness. We will be back. Mrs Richardson - May 2015
  • Our first visit, and absolutely not our last! We have had a wonderful stay. Such a chilled, perfect atmosphere. Views to die for and staff so kind and helpful. Thank you all so much. Mr Everson - May 2015
  • The whole experience was "stress free" - the booking, flight times, information/advice, transfers, quality of the hotel and the relaxed, friendly atmosphere created by all the staff made it a wonderful holiday. I would recommend Kalkan, especially if you enjoy dining out - the restaurants are amazing. The quality of the food and the service, wherever we went, was excellent. The Mediteran is a fairly small hotel and you quickly get to know the staff and other guests. If you want to spend time round the pool, there's plenty of sunbeds to go round (no need to put your towels out to "claim" your spot for the day!). We will certainly return and already looking to book our next holiday with Simpsons. Mr Martin - May 2015
  • First time visiting Kalkan and staying at the wonderful Mediteran hotel. Wonderful, family friendly hotel. The staff a very friendly and helpful. The views from the hotel are stunning and the restaurants in town are great. We had lots of fun at the BBQ night. Thank you to all the staff at the Mediteran. Mr Mason - May 2015
  • We return to Simpson year after year. They think of all the details and take the stree out of travel. Mr Sanders - May 2015
  • Back for our second visit. Once again, Halil and his team made us feel very welcome and they are all so friendly and helpful. Really go the extra mile. I am sure we will be back soon. Mrs Loveridge - May 2015
  • This is our fourth visit to the hotel and won't be our last. Still the best views in Kalkan. Mr Hadfield - May 2015
  • Thank you to all at Simpson for making our holiday a great success from booking through to return journey home. The Mediteran Hotel in Kalkan was as described in Simpsons web page, and was quiet with others of a similar mind. The simpsons rep Chris Young was on hand to help make our stay that little bit special. Thanks again to Mehmet, Murat and Gamsie at the Mediteran all of whom looked after us and we felt that nothing was too much trouble. We would recommend this boutique hotel for a relaxing break, with fantastic views and super chef. The town close enough for walking, but taxi needed for coming back, but hotel and restaurant was good enough not to need venturing out. Mr Mason - May 2015
  • The Mediteran is a little slice of heaven. The view is wonderful and the staff can not do enough for you. If you have babies then Kalkan and the Mediteran is perfect, everyone in Kalkan seems to love children and will spend most of their time amusing them while you eat dinner or shop. This was our first holiday as a family and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We will be back. Miss Jones - May 2015
  • A real gem !! We will be back . Big hugs also to Badem the hound . Mrs King - May 2015
  • Booking a holiday with Simpson travel you can be sure that your holiday will at least meet or often exceed expectations. The booking procedure is simple and effective and the information you receive is relevant and easy to understand. This holiday in particular I really liked the fact that we were travelling with British Airways from Heathrow. The flight was more comfortable and check in procedures are so much more efficient than on normal charter flights. We were well looked after buy our in resort representative and although we had no real need of his services he was always around to ensure that we were enjoying our stay. All in all an excellent holiday made possible by a travel company who know how to go the extra mile for their customers Mr Hadfield - May 2015
  • Fab as usual - our third stay! Speaks for itself. Mrs Douglas - May 2015
  • What a wonderful hotel and wonderful staff, nothing was too much trouble for them, even down to baby entertainment! We had a wonderful first family holiday, with lots of special memories to look back on. Thank you so much! Miss Jones - May 2015
  • First time visiting Kalkan and this wonderful hotel. Friendly welcoming staff and beautiful views which we can't wait to come back to! We have had a fantastic week and couldn't ask for anything more! Mr Kos - May 2015
  • Lovely hotel, very friendly staff and attentive staff. They made this a great weeks stay in Kalkan. If we come back to Kalkan, we would come back to the Mediteran. Mr Yule - May 2015
  • Thank you so much for a wonderful stay at the Mediteran. Our first time in Turkey and we will definitely be back! Such an amazing hotel with lovely helpful staff who it was a pleasure to get to know. Thank you! Mr Mason - May 2015

  • the holiday was a great success it was very relaxed . the location was superb and the hotel staff did every thing to make the stay a delight. Mrs Price - September 2014
  • Another wonderful week on a Simpson holiday. It was our 1st trip to Turkey and it did not disappoint. The hotel was excellent, amazing location and all the staff were so helpful. We were delighted with Kalkan as a destination, lovely restaurants and full of surprises. We have the Kalkan area now firmly on our list of places to revisit in the future. Chris&Anne Woodhead Mr Woodhead - September 2014
  • The hotel was wonderful. The staff were so friendly and accommodating . The view is spectacular. Our best holiday yet. Mrs Howieson - September 2014
  • Very peaceful relaxed holiday with a stunning view. Hotel staff very friendly and welcoming. Would recommend a boat trip to Kekova and the sunken City. Lots of stops for a swim off the boat in stunning bays. Mrs Welsby - September 2014
  • We had a 2 week holiday at the Hotel Mediteran in September and can thoroughly recommend it. The views from our balcony (room 303) were spectacular. The hotel is situated quite high above Kalkan, but it is perfectly ok to walk down into the town. We got a taxi back though as it is quite a steep walk. However, the hotel runs a shuttle 4 times a day which was useful. Kalkan is a perfect holiday if you like eating out. The choice of restaurants is fabulous and the standard is high. We liked Gourmet, Isos, The Small House, Aubergine, La Terrazza, Kalamaki (check out the loos!), to name a few. We also liked the Botanik Garden bar for a pre dinner drink - lovely garden lit by Turkish lanterns and candles. Also worth visiting Patara Beach, Kaputas Beach and the trout restaurants in the hills of Islamar about 20 mins drive from the hotel. A boat trip is a lovely day out and there are many to choose from at the harbour. The Simpson rep at the hotel, Lokman, is wonderful and will arrange anything for you. He is so friendly and helpful - and has a lovely smile! Another wonderful holiday from Simpsons - thank you, Mr Fletcher - September 2014
  • Excellent service before we traveled and then the added benefit of pleasant flight time and a dedicated check in desk was a great way to start the holiday. The dedicated minibus which met us at the airport was fine, but the addition of a hot towel and water was an added bonus. The rep on site was very helpful and was more than happy to arrange and book trips and book restaurants for us The apartments were very good and it was sad when we left Mr Evans - August 2014
  • The first thing that strikes you on arrival at the Mediteran is the view. It's breathtaking, taking in the bay of Kalkan and the surrounding hills. The hotel itself benefits from being family-owned. Nothing seems too much trouble for the owners and staff. Simply furnished, it is modern with a Turkish twist and delightful fauna. Its position in the hillside means the use of the free courtesy shuttle service and taxis from the town is a necessity for all but the fittest on a hot day. My partner and I, and teenage son Jack, made many friends among the guests, and enjoyed many hours making small talk around the delightful pool and bar . No review would be complete without special mention of the Simpson rep, Lokman, who appeared every morning and evening with a lovely smile and plenty of helpful advice. We came to regard him as yet another friend. Mr Nelson - August 2014
  • Excellent holiday. Hotel and staff amazing. Lokman the rep was incredibly helpful at all times. Fantastic views and a beautiful town. Probably our best holiday ever. - August 2014

  • Hotel Mediteran is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holiday experiences that we have had, the staff are professional, welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and cleaned daily by a lovely team of ladies, the pool and surrounding areas are looked after beautifully and there were always sunbeds for all, it was hard to move once ensconced by the pool with a watermelon smoothie, a short walk for a dip to cool down before returning for some more sun, what more could one want! Our evenings were spent by the bar followed by a trip in to Kalkan or staying for a meal at the hotel and we enjoyed two barbecue nights that were great fun. The food on offer was fabulous especially the mezes. As a family with teenagers and a twenty something we were not sure how it would be but the children made lots of friends as there was a good mix of ages, we too made some good friends and hope to return at the same time next year. A special mention to Gamze and Murat a brilliant, hospitable team, Mehmet for his cooking, Tuna and Nemet for their lovely smiles, Lokman who was always on hand with information and friendliness and anyone else I may have forgotten, we particularly fell in love with Baden, the cocker spaniel, who was such a character. This is a wonderful hotel in every way, well done to the Mediteran for making us so welcome. Mrs Lunn - August 2014
  • Our second holiday with Simpsons and our first time to Turkey - it was perfect. It was so well organised, everything had been thought of and sorted for us. It was truly relaxing and the hotel staff and the kalkan locals were exceptionally friendly. The restaurants and food and drink were exceptional. The boat trip was great fun and we saw giant turtles. The view from the hotel was magical and we spent a fortune on cocktails taking in the view. We would definitely recommend taking teenagers here and would love to go back. Mrs Franklin - July 2014
  • We found the service, accommodation and facilities at the Hotel Mediterran outstanding. We particularly valued the opportunity to mix and match self catering with the range of excellent venues to dine out. Lokman, the Simpson representative on site, was excellent, always on hand with a friendly greeting and able to make the right connections for us whether restaurant bookings or travel arrangements, nothing was too much bother. Mrs Payne - June 2014
  • Just what we were looking for. Location, standard and facilities. Look forward to trying out more holidays with Simpson. Thank you Miss Patel - June 2014
  • The Mediteran is a small family run hotel, intimate and comfortable. It affords privacy for those who want it, whilst offering a lovely al fresco restaurant bar and dining area that has the most stunning views over Kalkan and the bay beyond. The rooms are well appointed and offer a welcome relief from the midday heat. Tea and cake at 5pm is a lovely touch, and a great precursor to a wonderful cocktail as the heat of the day subsides! Kalkan itself is a fascinating town, and offers some great restaurants with a high standard of cuisine; the roof tops giving a lovely extra dimension to the whole dining experience. The Simpsons service is as always, superb. Mr Pawley - June 2014
  • This was our first booking with Simpsons and were totally impressed with the level of service and the amount of thought that had clearly been put into the arrangements by them. We stayed at the Mediteran Hotel in Kalkan in turkey staff there were superb as nothing was too much trouble for them at all they were attentive to the needs of their guests and always friendly chatty and polite. The food was always excellent too. Mr Wilkinson - June 2014
  • Fantastic two week holiday in the Hotel Medetran Kalkan Turkey. Mrs Hood - June 2014
  • Just had a fantastic week via Simpson Travel at the Hotel Mediteran in Kalkan ,Turkey. This small family run hotel is just lovely in every way. Friendly, comfortable and relaxing, designed to showcase the gorgeous views over the bay. The Simpson rep was great, knowledgeable and always on hand to help. Everyone seemed to genuinely care and we have nothing to fault. Really well done. Mrs Reed - June 2014
  • Thank you to the hotel, the staff and our rep Lokman for making our second visit just as special as the first. Mrs Chambers - May 2014
  • Just spent a week in Kalkan at the Mediteran and enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing time. The hotel was lovely, wonderful views across the bay and a chilled, friendly atmosphere. Being a relatively small hotel it never felt busy, plenty of very comfy sun beds around pool, which is also a decent size to actually be able to do a few lengths in. The hotel staff are all very helpful and friendly and serving tea and cake around the pool each day at 5 felt like a nice little treat. Kalkan itself is a super resort to wander around and the selection of good quality shops, bars and restaurants makes it a resort we would actually return to again. The Simpson representative Lokman is a real gem, on hand each morning and evening. His knowledge and helpfulness is super and is very good company to have a chat with, not at all overbearing. We would definitely use Simpson Travel again and recommend to our friends and family. Thank you for a great service all round! Mrs Gunby - May 2014
  • We had a superb time at The Mediteran - the staff couldn't have been more helpful and efficient, especially their concierge the wonderful Lokman. The apartments are spacious and have excellent sea views. The food at The Mediteran is also to be recommended. A week wasn't long enough - we plan to return next year! Karen Rowland and Dave Pearce Mrs Rowland - May 2014
  • We had a fantastic holiday at the Mediteran and would like to thank all the staff for making it so enjoyable, everything was spot on. While there is ample choice of restaurants in Kalkan town if you would prefer not to venture out then we can highly recommend the food at the hotel, while the house wine was also very good. Mr Conner - May 2014
  • Fabulous holiday. Would highly recommend Simpsons Mr Wilkins - October 2013
  • A wonderful holiday that exceeded our expectations in every way. Our first trip with Simpsons but definitely not our last! Ms Rowden - October 2013
  • Kalkan is a fantastic place to visit, laid back and friendly. The Mediteran is in a perfect location with friendly and helpful staff. The concierge, Lochman, made our holiday complete. He was always on hand to help and nothing was too much trouble for him. We intend to return. Mr Shires - October 2013
  • Hotel Mediteran is a welcoming, family-run hotel. The staff are exceptional. Kalkan is a lovely resort. The only thing that would make it better would be a sandy beach! Mrs Bartlett - September 2013
  • This is the second time with have been to the Mediteran in Kalkan and have had a most enjoyable and relaxing holiday . All the staff /Bardem and no name cat have been very helpful and entertaining,their friendliness and hospitality wil be very hard to beat, Thank you Halil and family we hope to see all again next year. Mrs Jagger - September 2013
  • The Mediteran Hotel in Kalkan was an excellent destination. The staff and Lokman the Simpson Representative were extremely helpful and friendly, the location was amazing, high up above Kalkan with a wonderful view over the bay and the town itself was full of fantastic restaurants and interesting shops. The Indigo Beach Club was a great "added extra" to enjoy with great snack lunches. A boat trip to Kekova, the sunken city is a must - you might even get to swim and touch a turtle as I was lucky enough to! Mrs Beames - September 2013
  • Everything we wanted, total relaxation, friendly attentive staff, amazing views, excellent food, well appointed rooms, loudly purring cat to stroke Mrs Chapman - September 2013
  • Nine years at the Hotel Mediteran says it all.Some small improvements this year added to the holiday. Mr Murphy - September 2013
  • Our first time with Simpson Travel and have no hesitation in recommending them or the Mediteran Hotel in Kalkan - the staff are excellent. Mrs Mcgillivray - September 2013
  • This was our second holiday with Simpson Travel and it did not disappoint. Crete last year and Turkey this year, both wonderful experiences helped by a company who do seem to really care. Mrs Hough - September 2013
  • My husband and I stayed at the Mediteran for 2 weeks at the end of Sept / beginning of October. It was our first Simpson holiday and they did not disappoint. The hotel was perfect for a relaxing, chilled out holiday which is what we wanted after a hectic year. The accommodation was spacious, clean and modern and the view from the balcony was to die for! I don't think I have ever had such a beautiful view when either sitting on the balcony, relaxing by the pool, or having a drink at the bar. The staff, especially Lokman and Murhat were so friendly and helpful. It was really nice to stay in a small hotel, exclusive to Simpson, as it felt like the service we received was genuine and personal. The welcome meal, plus tea and cake at the pool every afternoon were lovely touches. In short we loved it and we hope to return in the not too distant future! Mr Rawson - September 2013
  • Simpson Travel made our trip to Turkey a very memorable experience Mr Smith - September 2013
  • as ever, a wonderful holiday with Simpsons. Mrs Oswald - September 2013
  • This was a delightful introduction to Turkey. Everything was perfect at our hotel, the view was more beautiful than we expected and having meals overlooking the bay and mountains was lovely. We hope to return. Mrs Barnes - September 2013
  • This was our first time travelling with Simpson Travel. The accommodation we booked was just as described on the website and met our expectations. The Simpson Travel rep was probably one of the best we have experienced over our years of travelling abroad. We would not hesitate to recommend Simpson Travel to friends and family. Mrs Lane - September 2013
  • Thank you Simpsons for a wonderful holiday at the Mediteran Hotel in Kalcan. We had such a great time there and we would especially like to thank the team at the Mediteran for making us feel so special and welcome. I would be happy to recommend this hotel and I am definitely planning to return there myself some time soon. Miss Nicholls - September 2013
  • We have just returned from an extremely pleasant week in Kalkan, Turkey, where we had the great pleasure of staying at the Hotel Mediteran. From the moment that we arrived at the hotel we and the other guests were all made to feel welcome by the hugely impressive concierge and the wonderfully friendly staff. As well as appreciating the courtesy of an introductory 'welcome meal' the first evening also allowed us the opportunity to meet a few of the other guests and to further familiarise ourselves with the staff as well as Bardem, the beautiful resident cocker spaniel dog as well as the equally delightful (almost) resident cat. It was as early as this first night that we came to appreciate why the hotel is so special and why so many people continue to return here. By the end of our stay we were very happy that we had spent such a thoroughly pleasant week but saddened that we would no longer be spending any time with some of the wonderful people that we had met. Mr Woodhead - September 2013
  • Thank you for a wonderful holiday experience, the excellent customer service as well as the friendliness & professionalism at the Mediteran. Mrs Davies - September 2013

  • We have just returned from hotel Mediteran in Kalkan, Turkey and would recommend both the destination and Hotel. The hotel staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. They were always smiling. We would like to make special mention of the concierge at this hotel (Lokman) who was always on hand for any queries we might have and who made a great effort to ensure that everything was OK for us. His daily chats were very much appreciated and his smile of welcome first thing in the morning started the day on a great note. Can't speak too highly of this hotel which has fantastic views. Mr Smith - June 2013
  • The Mediteran and Kalkan are an exceptional combination for us and the staff are so very welcoming that we will definitely be back. Thank you Simpson for making it a very relaxing break Mrs Daunter - June 2013

And, as others have said, great cocktails and smoothies! Very pleased to have stumbled upon Simpson Travel and would likely use you again. Mr Sims - June 2013
  • One of the best, hassle-free holidays we have ever taken. Beautiful location, charming staff, terrace bar/restaurant with views to die for, we found ourselves hard-pressed to actually leave the hotel. Highly recommended. Mrs Setterfield - June 2013
  • Just returned from the Mediteran Hotel in Kalkan, June 2013. Can't recommend this hotel enough for an amazing, relaxing and brilliant time. The location is perfect with a view over the infinity pool to die for. The pick up at Dalaman airport with private transfer, lovely apartment and brilliant staff all made our holiday perfect. Well done Simpson Travel. Mr Amor - June 2013
  • This is probably the best holiday we have had as a family. The hotel is lovely, the views are amazing and Lokman and the team are exceptional. We were all very sad to leave and there is no doubt we will be returning. The only issue is the walk up and down the hill but the views from the hotel make it worth it. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Mediteran for making our holiday so special. Best cocktails ever! Mrs Hill - May 2013
  • A thoroughly enjoyable holiday that fully met expectations. The staff at The Mediteren Hotel are exceptional. Thank you. Mr Cochrane - May 2013

PREGNANCY
You will usually need a certificate of fitness to fly if you are more than 28 weeks pregnant. Most airlines will not allow you to fly if you are more than 32 weeks pregnant. Please refer to the airline’s website for details of their policy.

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.
