  • 2-3
  • Luxurious and stylish Simpson Hotel
  • Walking distance to Kalkan
  • Four 2-bedroom and four 3-bedroom suites
  • Welcome dinner included
  • Private terrace Jacuzzis

Set high above the coast for the most mesmerising views, yet still within walking distance of Kalkan’s sophisticated little centre, the Korsan Suites are unique within our collection, combining all the generous space and facilities of a stylish apartment with the service of a luxury hotel, including a restaurant, bar and room service. The apart-hotel concept is first class in both design and execution; each suite is laid out over two floors to maximise the sea views, best enjoyed from your private Jacuzzi with a glass of something chilled from your fridge. The two-floor layout lends an extra dimension of privacy, ideal if you’re travelling with older children or teenagers who love the freedom of having Kalkan and its beach clubs less than 15 minutes away on foot. And if you’ve got little ones with unpredictable appetites, or big ones that never stop snacking, having your own kitchen makes life easy for everyone.

Self-catering is entirely optional of course; daily breakfast by the main pool is included for all our guests, and the marvellous Memduh and his team run an excellent restaurant on the premises. Once you’ve settled in and got your bearings, Kalkan beckons with a tempting choice of waterfront cafés and rooftop restaurants, many offering highly creative menus that fuse local ingredients with international inspiration to great effect. For a taste of traditional Turkey, you might also like to try your hand at bartering for a souvenir or two in the local markets.

Design and location are what bring many visitors to the Korsan Suites, but what makes them come back year after year is the truly exceptional service from manager Memduh and the whole team. With an impressive 5-star TripAdvisor rating and a very loyal following of guests, Korsan Suites are the perfect embodiment of Turkish hospitality that extends to couples, groups and families of all ages.

Fabulous relaxed holiday. The accommodation was lovely and the staff there were superb, nothing was too much trouble. Our son's birthday was during our stay and Memduh arranged for a cake and flowers to be put in our suite. The rep was there virtually every day and was very helpful. Thank you.

Mrs Julie Cartlidge, June 2024

We have had a wonderful stay here. Feeling very relaxed now! I would recommend a day trip to Meis, a tiny island about 30 mins ferry from Kas. Many thanks to Memduh and his staff.

Neville, Sue & Laura Simpson, May 2024

We have had a wonderful first stay in Kalkan. We have been very well looked after, everything has been perfect! We especially enjoyed getting the small boats over to the beach clubs on the other side of the bay.

Jill & Pete, May 2024

Another lovely holiday at the Korsan Suites. Excellent service from local Concierge Kitty, Manager Memduh and all his team.

Mrs Susan Younger, May 2024

Thank you so much for a fabulous week at the Korsan Suites - Memduh and his team were so friendly and helpful. Location is excellent and the accommodation worked very well and had great views. The selection of jams at breakfast were a talking point and delicious. Thank you.

Mrs Nicola Chambers, May 2024

Used Simpson Travel a few times now & each trip has been smooth & seamless. Excellent service. Korsan Suites in Kalkan Turkey are exceptional & that’s more to do with the staff (as well as location). Our next holiday will likely be through Simpson.

Miss Claire Nevin, May 2024

Our first time to Kalkan and a wonderful stay at the Korsan Suites. A huge thank you to Memduh and the team for looking after us so well.

Guy & Hilary, May 2024

Thank you Memduh for a truly great fortnight. Apartment beautifully cleaned every day. See you next year.

Nicky, John, Jess and family, October 2023

A fantastic location with a fantastic team. Memduh and his team have gone beyond the call of duty to ensure that each guest had everything they needed. We will miss Korsan Suites and have had an amazing time so a very big thank you.

The McClusters and Patel, October 2023

I’m not going to say what a fabulous place this is to stay, and I’m not going to say how wonderful all the staff are, who make Korsan Suites so special. And, of course, the expert management of Memduh in running a very tight and smooth operation. What I will say is that we’ve booked for two weeks next year already and it will be our ninth visit in 10 years. Enough said?

Mark and Debbie, October 2023

Thank you so much to Memduh and team – we had an absolutely fabulous time. The staff are exceptional, the best service in Kalkan and we have been coming for 20 years!

Donna and Roger, October 2023

This was our second visit to the Korsan Suites and apart from the view everything was as good as we remembered. Lovely spacious suite, kept spotlessly clean and all our needs met by the wonderful Memduh and his team. They make you feel like one of the family and nothing is too much trouble which made for a very relaxing week.

Mr Ian O'Connor, October 2023

Simpson Travel once again lived up to our expectations. From the moment we exited the airport in Turkey, to when we checked our bags back with the airline on our return, there was always the reassurance that a knowledgeable and friendly Simpson representative was there to advise and assist if required. The accommodation was excellent and the super staff at the Korsan Suites are exactly the same as on our first visit several years ago, which speaks volumes. It's lovely to be greeted as a returning friend, more than a guest. It feels like travel "used to be".

Mr Christopher Bennett, October 2023

We had a fabulous holiday & can’t wait to go back next year!

Mrs Joanne Spencer, October 2023

Absolutely excellent manager and team at Korsan suites.

Mrs Donna Daymond, October 2023

For a second year in a row, we travelled to Kalkan in October using Simpson Travel. The service provided from the moment of first enquiry to your departure at the end of your holiday is excellent. Our accommodation at the Korsan Suites was perfect. Our host, Memdhu (and all his team) could not have done more to make our stay any better than it was. Everything worked perfectly, and our concierge Kitty, in resort, also helped us a lot with planning our week as well and answering our questions. We will not hesitate to book with Simpson again. Thank you for another great holiday!

Mrs Joanne Weston, October 2023

Truly wonderful holiday experience from start to finish. Many thanks to the whole team at Simpson Travel.

Mr Des Morrison, October 2023

Outstanding service from friendly and efficient staff and Simpson representatives. Memduh the manager's help and support in a medical emergency went way beyond anything I might have expected, over many days.

Mr David Evans, October 2023

Simpson travel are so lucky to have Memduh managing the Korsan Suites. The staff couldn’t be more helpful if they tried. An absolute gem of a place and the staff are what make it! Will definitely return

Mrs Linda Ann McCrum, October 2023

Fantastic accommodation, beautiful location and view. Sunsets to die for. All wrapped up with amazing hospitality from Memduh and his team who couldn’t have been more caring and informative. Such a wonderful holiday.

Stuart and Clare, October 2023

A lovely holiday and looked after very well by Simpson Travel. Memhet and his team at Korsan Suites were excellent and very attentive, going the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Kitty was helpful and provided some great recommendations. Very impressed and wouldn’t hesitate to return.

Mrs Deborah Roberts, October 2023

Another outstanding Simpson holiday! Knowing we are in safe hands with a Simpson booking, we were delighted with the exceptional accommodation and a fully relaxing experience from the moment we were picked up by the private transfer. We were incredibly impressed with the genuine warmth of all hotel staff and the quality of food they served with a smile. Keen to tell all our friends - while making sure there is booking space for us to keep returning on Simpson holidays for years to come...

Mr Paul Shaw, October 2023

You could not find anywhere better. The service, the food and the accommodation are superb. Thank you to the whole team for looking after us so well. They make Korsan Suites – the atmosphere is so welcoming. We look forward to returning next year. Thank you Kitty for all your help.

Dorothy and David, September 2023

“Simply the Best”! Thanks to Memduh and his team for making our stay so perfect. Look forward to seeing you all next year. Kitty – thanks for all your advice and looking after us so well.

Anne and David, September 2023

We’ve had such a lovely week, returning to Kalkan after 23 years! Korsan Suites is the perfect balance of independence, spacious suites and the warm hospitality of Memduh and his team – always helpful and indulging with our attempts to speak Turkish. Thank you for helping to make our stay in colourful Kalkan a memorable one.

Caroline, John and Lydia, September 2023

Sadly we have to go home and leave Memduh and all the great team. We have absolutely loved being at Korsan Suites. Such a great base to stay in Kalkan. Thank you for all the help, advice, medical assistance and jolly cheerfulness. Thank you for keeping our rooms clean and plentiful towels. Hamam and gulet trip were really good. Great breakfasts and coffee. Simpson Travel was excellent – communications, organisation and thanks to Kitty and the Simpson team.

Cris and Sallyanne, September 2023

We’ve had the most relaxing week in this beautiful place. Everyone has been so helpful and kind – we’ve felt so valued. Everything has been perfect and would like to have stayed another week… Memduh and his team have been wonderful and Kitty most helpful in every way. Thank you, Simpson Travel.

Sophie R, September 2023

Have travelled with Simpson for many years and it’s our fifth time to Kalkan. As always, Simpson are just wonderful and Kalkan is as colourful and vibrant as we remember it to be. Never had a bad meal anywhere. Thanks to Kitty, the team and Simpson Travel – can’t fault you.

Paul and Ursula, September 2023

What a wonderful week we have had. Memduh and his amazing team made our stay magical and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. The apartment, the pool area, the food were all first class and it was a real pleasure to stay at this beautiful property. A thank you to Kitty too, who has been exemplary throughout. A great balance of professional and friendly. Thank you.

Sue and Deborah, September 2023

We had a very enjoyable week at Korsan Suites. Our suite was very clean and modern, spread out over two floors with a good sized open plan living area/kitchen. Memduh and his team were very hospitable, friendly and warm - nothing was too much trouble. Having access to facilities at the Kalkan Regency Hotel a few steps away allowed us to take advantage of their gorgeous outdoor bar and restaurant with views to die for.

Mrs Caroline Bonney, September 2023

Thanks for such a lovely time at Korsan Suites. Memduh and his team have been exceptional and we thank you for your kindness and friendliness.

Anna, Jonny, Jackie, Richard, Lizzi and Charlie, September 2023

This was our first holiday in Turkey. The service and hospitality of Memduh and the team was exceptional. Thanks for making our holiday so memorable.

Dean, Judith and James, September 2023

Our first visit to Korsan Suites and it won’t be our last. As has been said repeatedly, Memduh and his team are unsurpassed. Food, service, housekeeping, information and more than that; getting to know their guests and offering that “little bit extra” which just makes a lovely holiday even more special. Outstanding!

Mrs Lynne Roberts, September 2023

Having read many reviews, our expectations were high and we were not disappointed. Memduh and all the staff were so helpful and polite, nothing was too much trouble. They made our holiday the success it was. The accommodation is good and the pool area is perfect. We liked that Korsan Suites is a small complex with just 8 suites. This makes it feel more personal and that you are not just "another" guest. A huge thank you to Memduh and all the staff, not forgetting the lovely Kitty of course! Hope to see you again one day.

Mrs Deborah Cowling, September 2023

Kalkan and the Korsan Suites were an ideal location for a lovely holiday. The Simpson Travel representative and the staff at the Korsan Suites were extremely helpful and friendly. Making for an enjoyable stay.

Mrs Robina Hopkins, September 2023

Lovely laid back hotel with attentive staff in a great location. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anybody looking for a relaxing time with easy access to more if required.

Mr Carl Flinn, September 2023

“Simply the Best!” Our second time at the Korsan Suites and it only gets better - already booked for next year. Memduh and his team cannot do enough for you and it’s always with a smile. Kitty from Simpson Travel makes sure your holiday runs smoothly giving you plenty of advice and making sure everything is booked. The complimentary Poseidon boat trip is always a highlight together with the Haman experience. Kitty also pointed out some great Beach Clubs.

Mr David Oldham, September 2023

This was our third holiday with Simpson Travel and was just as good as ever. The quality and service is reliably excellent every year.

Mrs Anne Ripley, September 2023

The Korsan Suites are excellent. The staff are most welcoming and the whole venue has a really good atmosphere. Whatever you ask for is readily and eagerly attended to. Cannot recommend enough. Amazingly holiday accommodation.

Mrs Dorothy Lucas, September 2023

Our first stay at the Korsan Suites and what a gem! Memduh and his team offer the best of both worlds - a superb, spacious apartment with just the right amount of hotel services to ensure a fabulous, stress-free holiday. Simpson Travel were faultless from start to finish in the management of the booking and transfers. We've travelled with you before and will definitely be doing so again.

Catherine Hammett, August 2023

Fantastic service from start to finish - Kitty our rep was fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful. We'll definitely be back!

Mr Alexander Burton Brown, August 2023

We stayed at the Korsan Suites for a week at the end of August 2023. The accommodation was superb with the most breathtakingly beautiful view across the bay. Kalkan is magical and keeps us coming back. Memduh is the most kind, thoughtful, funny and helpful host, alongside his incredible team. Can’t wait to come back.

Ms Rosalind Padgham, August 2023

Sad to leave, but grateful for a wonderful holiday with many happy memories. Memduh and his amazing team – thank you from the bottom of our hearts for creating such a warm welcome. Your care, kindness and attention to detail is exceptional! What a joy and blessing to celebrate my birthday here with you and I so appreciate all the trouble you went to in creating a special day for me. We’ll miss the chats, stories and poolside drinks. Hope to return before too long.

We have had the best week at Korsan Suites! The accommodation far exceeded our expectations. Memduh and his team couldn’t have done more for us. Shhh! This place needs to be kept secret!

Duncan, Jan, Poppy and Zac, August 2023

We have had a wonderful holiday. Korsan Suites are the perfect mix of hotel service with self-catering independence. The peace and quiet and balcony views were wonderful. Memduh and team have looked after us superbly. We will definitely be back to explore Kalkan and the coast again.

Jo, Marc, Ethan and Harry, August 2023

Ed and Liz Jones, May 2023

As usual, Memduh and his team and Kitty have been wonderful hosts, Every need taken care of with their usual good-natured professionalism and courtesy.

E and M, May 2023

Comfortable, clean and welcoming accommodation well managed by Memduh and his staff. A fifteen minute stroll into Kalkan centre for it’s varied choice of restaurants and shops.

Margaret Jones, May 2023

This was our second visit to the Korsan Suites which is evidence of our satisfaction. There are many plusses - the quality of the suites themselves, the views the peace and quite, not to mention the excellent friendly staff. The area is full of wonderful places to visit or venues to eat. It is worth mentioning that there are no lifts so the inevitable steps make the accommodation unsuitable for anyone physically disabled.

Christopher Bennett, October 2022

We had the most fabulous holiday at the Korsan Suites perfectly suited for a family of six. The most friendly accommodation we have ever stayed in.

Nicholas Miller, October 2022

This was our second visit to the Korsan Suites and it was lovely to see Memduh some others again, Memduh was as helpful and lovely as ever. It’s a great location for walking into town and despite building works out the front, the view is still good and will be ok once the villas are completed. We love Kalkan and the people and will be back.

Claire Bardsley, October 2022

After three Covid cancellations it was so lovely to be back at The Korsan Suites. Nothing had changed, the service and the food were as good as ever and of course Memduh was still there, he really is the heart of The Korsan Suites and the reason why so many people keep returning. We met Kitty again - she is always super friendly and helpful. We hope to be back again next year!

Prudence O'Gorman, October 2022

We would just like to mention all the staff that looked after us. Cleaners Bafer and his wife Huriye who did an excellent job of keeping our suite lovely and clean. Kitchen staff Ahmet the chef and Caner assistant chef who served us with some excellent meals in the evening's during our stay. Last of all, extra special thank you to Memduh and Sadrettin (Sado) who also really looked after us. Memduh is special and takes the time to talk to you and is always interested in what you have to say. All of the staff helped us to enjoy our holiday and made it special for us.

Barbara Dalton, September 2022

We have returned to the Korsan Suites year after year. That in itself must speak volumes, for the quality of accommodation and service offered throughout our stay. Simpson Travel make the whole process of organising the holiday stress free and straightforward. Would highly recommend. Memduh at The Korsan Suites is the epitome of professionalism in welcoming his guests in a quiet and unassuming manner. Nothing is too much trouble...he truly is an asset to the company.Suzanne Prince, September, 2022 Amazing welcome, fantastic staff who can’t do enough for you. A lovely place to stay.

Judith Taylor, September 2022

First class vacation in Kalkan, very well planned and executed. Our first time in Turkey, no dissatisfaction at all.

Norman Hill, September 2022

We had a terrific week at Korsan Suites. The quality of the accommodation and friendliness of the staff was excellent, as was the local knowledge of Kitty, the local rep. The service from Simpson throughout was very good and we would recommend both Korsan Suites and Simpson.

Duncan Thomas, August 2022

As always, we know we are guaranteed a great location, excellent customer service pre departure and at the resort, and excellent accommodation. It’s easy for us to book Simpson holidays with complete confidence year after year. Thank you to all who make our holidays stress free from start to finish.

Rory Murphy, August 2022

What an amazing stay at theKorsan Suites. Our second visit and still as beautiful! Memduh and his team are fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. Daily housekeeping and regular changing of towels is a nice touch. The complimentary meal was very tasty and lots of it too! The boat trip was a really lovely day out and a good opportunity to meet other holiday makers. Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Turkey, we will be back.

Sara Disson, July 2022

The whole experience of using Simpson Travel and the Korsan Suites could not be improved.

Stuart Thorne, July 2022

Korsan Suites is the most wonderful place to stay in Kalkan, Memduh and all the team were absolutely amazing. They couldn’t do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble. They have the most delicious soft drinks and the welcome meal was wonderful. I felt like I had my own private villa with the luxury of a 5-star hotel all built into one. Our suite was gorgeous and had everything we needed, the dip pool was the best, with the views over Kalkan. I will definitely be back, my only wish would be to have 10 days.

Jane Vowles, July 2022

Korsan suites are 5-star in every respect. Staff can make or break a holiday and with Memduh, the Korsan Suites have an absolute gem. Nothing too much trouble.

William Wakely, June 2022

Having visited Korsan Suites on several occasions, it has always been made special by Memduh and his team. Having missed visiting for a couple of years due to Covid, things hadn’t changed and were still excellent.

John Ross, June 2022

Thank you for the most wonderful holiday in this outstandingly beautiful part of Turkey. Having worked throughout the pandemic it was such a treat and a huge relief to get away and relax and that is just what we have been able to do here at Korsan Suites. The team who run Korsan Suites could not be better. They are kind beyond words, caring, considerate, hardworking, intuitive, gentle, understanding and willing to go that extra mile to make the stay just right. Memduh and the team have made this holiday the perfect escape and we could not be more grateful. With best wishes and huge thanks.

Claire, Chris, Patrick & Phoebe, October 2021

First time in Kalkan and we had a fantastic time. Memduh was very attentive and professional and we were really well looked after. We had the most amazing view from our suite. Looking forward to returning next year.

Joan Moran, October 2021

A fantastic holiday – could not be faulted. The Korsan Suites are in a beautiful location with stunning views across Kalkan and ideally situated for an easy stroll into the town centre. The suites provide the best of both worlds with your own private space as well as the option to use the communal pool. Breakfast is provided with the option to have lunch and dinner in your own suite or in the restaurant area. All in all, a fantastic holiday. We will hopefully return soon.

Julia Rawson, September 2020

Fantastic accommodation! So much space and everything you need. Views from the balconies are amazing when lazing in your own Jacuzzi! Lovely pool too and often were there on our own. Staff were fantastic as was the food. Thank you Mete and Seref and all the other staff for a great week!

Lesley Booth, September 2020

Wonderful stay as ever. Mete and the whole team looked after us really well in difficult circumstances when we were left as the only guests in our second week due to the Covid-19 situation in the UK. We love the Korsan Suites – they are in a perfect location and well-appointed and the staff are fabulous. Kitty, the Simpson rep, is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We hope to return again next year.

Carolyn & Andy Mackinnon-Ure, September 2020

If ever a holiday was needed it was this year and as ever it did not disappoint! The Korsan Suites, as always, offer a very friendly welcome where nothing is too much trouble to help make your holiday a special one. The setting is superb with undisturbed views out to sea and the beautiful town of Kalkan. We were sad to leave but left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated and ready to plan a return trip. Thank you to everyone at Simpson Travel and The Korsan Suites.

Suzanne & Jack Prince, August 2020

A very special place to stay – beautifully appointed, stunning location and first class hospitality. The Korsan team are extremely professional but do everything with warmth and good humour. Kitty and Vicky are excellent representatives of the Simpson Travel brand – knowledgeable, super friendly and altogether lovely, helpful people. Bowled over by Kalkan – such a brilliant blend of chilled days by the sea and sophisticated, vibrant evenings. Perfect for all, but amazing for families with teens. One of our best holidays ever – and during a pandemic! Good work Simpson Travel.

Camilla, Gordon, Grace & Lily, August 2020

Everything was well organised, from being picked up with the private transfer which was nice without being cramped and no fuss, space, air conditioning, water or wine on ice was a real nice touch, further the greeting at the hotel was very warm by Memduh and the amazing team behind him. I cannot rate Memduh as front of house manager highly enough, he ensured everything was taken care of and was very knowledgeable about the area too. The quality of the suites were excellent, very clean, modern and suited our needs. The breakfast and service was excellent, serviced by a hard working team, also the representative from Simpson was very professional (Kitty) and on hand should you need any tips on how to get around the local region. Special notes that the team went out of their way to accommodate us in every way which was very worthy and appreciated especially as we had our elderly parents with us, we are grateful. We will use Simpson Travel again based on our first experience and we look forward to booking something special next year.

Richard & Tracey, October 2019

Wonderful first holiday with Simpson Travel and we were very impressed. I cannot speak highly enough of Kitty, Memduh and the rest of the staff at the Korsan Suites. My partner says it’s the best service he has received. Kalkan is a beautiful resort and we met some lovely people. We will definitely holiday with Simpson again.

Petula & Fred, October 2019

Our second holiday with Simpson Travel and once again, everything was as described. The team at Korsan Suites are wonderful – nothing is too much trouble and they know how to deliver an excellent service. The suites are very well equipped and immaculate, with the most amazing views. Including the gulet trip and Hamam is an excellent touch and a fabulous experience for all.

The Wilmott family, October 2019

S – synonymous with quality. I- Inspired locations. M – Made for the discerning traveller. P – Personal touch. S – so much to do. O – of good repute. N – None better.

Mrs T, September 2019

The Korsan Suites was a stylish, intimate place to stay. The suite was excellent with wonderful views over the bay. The service was second to none with nothing too much trouble. We felt very welcome and very much at home! The location was pleasingly near to the buzzy town of Kalkan with its amazing array of restaurants.

Vanessa Young, September 2019

The holiday experience at Korsan Suites was different from that of our normal hotel and villa holiday but one that we really enjoyed and will be considering it again for the future. The quality of the overall staff service, accommodation and facilities was excellent.

Carol & Colin, September 2019

We never tire of our visits to Korsan Suites despite this being our fourth stay. It feels like coming home albeit with a much superior view, much better weather and a distinct lack of housekeeping issues to attend to! We truly are treated to a beautiful setting with such a welcoming and attentive team. Every year we are sad to leave but content in the knowledge we will be returning very soon. Thanks Memduh and team ...... you make it a truly very special place. See you soon.

Suzanne & Jack Prince, August 2019

Korsan Suites not only fulfilled our expectations, but far exceeded them on every level – from the accommodation itself to the exceptional charming team who work at the property and made our stay such an enjoyable and relaxing experience.

Mrs A Davies, August 2019

We had a wonderful fortnight. We were so impressed with the quality and cleanliness of the accommodation. Memduh, the manager, and his team are such wonderful hosts and really look after you during your stay with endless tips and suggestions of where to eat, what trips to do also supported by Kitty, the very knowledgeable Simpson rep. The saltwater pool was lovely and the Jacuzzi on the balcony was a real hit with the teens. The view from the Suites is just beautiful day and night. The boat trip on Poseidon was a real treat too. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

The Osborne family, August 2019

Korsan Suites are spacious and beautifully positioned to enjoy the views and the lovely town of Kalkan. The staff are very friendly and really go out of their way to make sure your holiday is as wonderful as possible. The trip on the Poseidon, the hotel gulet, was a real highlight of the holiday. The whole holiday was excellent value for money.

S Mackenzie, August 2019

My wife is already trying to book for next year! The hotel standards were superb but the manager made the experience special, a very warm and welcoming environment in which to relax. A short 10-15 minute walk into town and then a £2.50 taxi home again. The split level room meant enough space for adults and children with the much need excellent air conditioning!

Darren & Emma Baker, August 2019

We had a wonderful holiday at Korsan Suites. Our suite was delightful and was kept spick and span by the Korsan staff. The service given was without fault, friendly and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended!

Rob & Julia, August 2019

I can't say enough about the kindness, friendliness and professionalism of Memduh and his team. They remembered little things I didn't even know I needed, like making sure I had goggles for my beach trip. The venue is perfect in both view and design. We will definitely be making return trips in the future.

Mr J Fry, July 2019

What a wonderful holiday at Korsan Suites. The attention to detail was fabulous and the service levels were wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for Memduh and his staff. Memduh is one of the friendliest and caring hosts we have ever come across and we will definitely return because of him! It was great that Kitty was around most mornings if we had any questions and she gave us good recommendations for places to go and trips, restaurants, etc. The Hamam was a good experience and the boat trip on Poseidon was a lovely day out too. Thanks you Simpson Travel (and especially Memduh!).

Mena Duggins, July 2019

Memduh and his team are just fantastic and look after your every need. The location is stunning and Korsan Suites provide an excellent balance of privacy but inclusion. I am not surprised that many guests return every year. It is a ‘Turkish Delight’ worth experiencing.

Simpson Traveller, July 2019

Our stay at Korsan Suites was our first visit to Kalkan and Turkey, and we're already itching to return! From the minute we arrived Memduh and his team's hospitality made us feel relaxed. During our stay nothing was too much trouble and they were always on hand to help. Kitty was also an amazing rep and helped with any queries we had. The Korsan Suites themselves were spacious and very comfortable, with wonderful views and very well equipped if you wanted to cook in. We did that rarely as the town was a short taxi journey and had so many excellent eateries to choose from.

Mrs Leonie Edwards, July 2019

We absolutely loved our time at Korsan Suites – fabulous, spacious apartments and everything was so easy we totally relaxed very quickly. Kitty was a fantastic rep and we look forward to booking with Simpson Travel for our next sun holiday.

Mrs Scott, July 2019

We had a fantastic holiday at Korsan suites with our two children. The Korsan apartments are very well designed and extremely comfortable. Great air conditioning and the beds were great. Memduh and his team were fantastically friendly and couldn't do enough to help, the children loved them and they made our lives easy. Kalkan is lovely and there is plenty to do.

Mr Price, July 2019

We had a fantastic week at Korsan Suites. The accommodation is of a high standard, the pool area very good, and the breakfast excellent. But it's the service from Memduh and his team that elevates the experience – they go out of their way to make your stay as special as possible.

Jane Walton, June 2019

This was our third visit to the Korsan Suites. It was just as we remembered it and although 8 years old it is clearly very well maintained as it felt much newer. As always Memduh, the manager was brilliant, the chef cooked lovely food and the cleaners always did their best to accommodate us and our baby who always seemed to be sleeping whenever they wanted to clean our suite.

Mr J Brand, June 2019

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at the Korsan Suites, the views were wonderful as were the welcome and kindness we received from Memduh and his team. Nothing was too much trouble for them and this truly added to the enjoyment of our holiday. Kitty our representative was also extremely helpful and efficient.

Christine Mann & Stephen Bishop, June 2019

Our second holiday with Simpson and we will definitely be back. Everything was well managed from booking to departure flight. All the Simpson staff we encountered were friendly and professional. Thank you for making our family holiday special.

Sue H, June 2019

Our second visit to Korsan Suites. The manager, Memduh ,is just the best – he is helpful, kind, considerate and fun. The apartments provide a real holiday home with the advantages of hotel service. I spent time on the outdoor sofas in the shade doing my sewing, my idea of heaven!

Deborah Sanders, June 2019

It's not the good location and accommodation, or the great views that make the Korsan Suites so special, it's the people. Manager Memduh and his team, together with your local representative Kitty, have made our most recent visit really superb.

Mr & Mrs Younger, June 2019

Second time at Korsan Suites and still absolutely love it. Kalkan is gorgeous and Simpson is extremely efficient. The staff at Korsan Suites were welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. I love that view! Can't wait to go back again.

Mrs Green, June 2019

This was my second visit to Korsan Suites and most certainly won’t be my last. Memdah and his team made us extremely welcome and we felt very much at home there. This was my sixth experience of a Simpson holiday and all have been excellent.

Janet Ward, June 2019

We have absolutely loved our first trip to Kalkan and an incredible stay at Korsan Suites. We will miss it so much but will be back in 2020.

Mike, Helen, Alexander & Rory, May 2019

A huge thank you to Memduh and all the staff for making our holiday so special. It is our first, but definitely not our last visit to Kalkan. What an amazing place. We will take back many fabulous memories from our week and look forward to returning to make more.

Geoff, Karen & Callum, May 2019

Thank you so much for the most perfect holiday. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so relaxed! The view from the rooms is so beautiful and very single member of staff has been so kind and welcoming.

Sophie Elvin, May 2019

The whole KS team have been fantastic – extremely welcoming and attentive. We will miss the view, the breakfasts, the call to prayer, the friendliest restaurants in the world. We have loved our week and only wish it could have been longer. This is a very special place with very special people running it.

Christy, Jonathan & Jane, May 2019

What a wonderful holiday. Many thanks to Memduh and the fantastic team - they were all so helpful and friendly.  Simpson Travel promised luxury and delivered. The breakfasts were amazing – especially the pancakes.

Andy, Sarah, Charlie & Sophie, May 2019

I cannot recommend Simpson Travel highly enough. They understand what customer service really means and exceed expectations in their delivery. Thank you to everyone who played a part in my recent holiday to Kalkan. You helped to make it the perfect week!

Mrs Robinson, May 2019

The suites were beautiful. Amazing sea views and a fabulous size apartment. Location to town was very good. Boat trip on the Poseidon was fabulous! Memduh was an excellent manager and we will definitely be returning to Kalkan and Korsan Suites in the future.

Miss See, May 2019

Reading other reviews of the Korsan Suites it is difficult to disagree with anything contained within them. Everything about this place is top notch. I will however make mention of a couple of things. 1) Simpson staff at Gatwick and at Dalaman were easily recognisable and well situated so the process was quick and efficient. 2) The Simpson representative at the Korsan Suites, Kirsti, was without doubt the best holiday representative we have ever had. She was always available, not pushy or trying to sell us anything (this is usually the reason we avoid rep meetings on other holidays we have had). She has a very pleasant and outgoing personality, very knowledgeable and extremely helpful and is a great credit to the company. 3)The staff at the Korsan Suites led by Memduh were excellent in all regards. 4) This is the first holiday we have taken with Simpson Travel and will not be the last.

Mr & Mrs Newcombe, October 2018

It was our first stay at the Korsan Suites and we're glad to have chosen wisely. It was an excellent experience. The location, staff and suites are superb. Most of the other guests had stayed there previously. I would highly recommend Kalkan and the Korsan Suites.

Mark, October 2018

We usually ‘go it alone’ when booking holidays. However, our experience with Simpson Travel has truly converted us. Value for money and amazing service from beginning to end, made for one of the best holidays we've ever had. Why make life difficult when it should be a breeze?

Mrs W, October 2018

Another lovely holiday at the Korsan Suites. I'm really not sure what it is that makes this place so special, almost all the other guests there were on at least their second visit (some were on their sixth visit!). It is very peaceful, with beautiful views of Kalkan and the apartments are lovely and spacious, but the extra ingredient has to be the manager Memduh. He is so kind and helpful, nothing is too much trouble and his staff are all lovely. It is a perfect little oasis for a tranquil holiday in Kalkan.

Prudence O’Gorman, October 2018

An excellent experience from initial call to booking. The service is faultless and extremely professional. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone we dealt with. The Korsan Suites are fantastic we felt so relaxed and welcome as soon as we arrived and Memduh and his team were helpful and attentive at all times. We will definitely return.

Mrs S Revett, October 2018

We have just returned from The Korsan Suites in Kalkan. It was my husband’s and my second visit. This time our daughter and family, including two children joined us. We had a three-bedroom suite which was perfect for all the family. High chair and baby cot, along with a stair gate that had been fitted for us – super! Memdou and all of the team were as great as ever, and nothing was too much trouble. The welcome meal was delicious; the chocolate pudding was absolutely divine. For breakfast do give the bacon a try, it is extra, but very tasty. We went to Patara Beach for the sunset, as recommended by Kirsti, our Simpson travel representative. Stunning! Memdou provided a cool box along with a parasol. We thoroughly enjoyed the Turkish bath and the trip on the Poseidon. Thank you again to Memdou and team, not forgetting Kirsti, who is always on hand to help. A fabulous holiday in a fabulous location and accommodation.

Steve, Tina, Lisa & Stephen, September 2018

Our Korsan Suites experience was truly outstanding, what a find.

Dorothy Begley, September 2018

Korsan Suites are just all round perfection mainly thanks to Memduh and his wonderful team and their great position in Kalkan. D.

Saunders, September 2018

We have just spent two weeks at The Korsan Suites in Kalkan. They are ideally located in a quiet area just outside of the main centre and provide immaculate and spacious accommodation with great views over the bay. The team at Korsan are exceptional and cannot do enough to make your stay memorable. Kalkan is a friendly resort with excellent restaurants. Do go, you will not be disappointed.

Mr Davison, September 2018

Memdou is an exceptional host! Ramazan and Kirsti gave a very personal service. The other team members also were very obliging; working hard behind the scenes to ensure our holiday experience was faultless. From the welcome received to the team waving us off in a taxi, it was just wonderful and heart-warming. The location and accommodation are exquisite. Food served in the suite or in the town was amazing. Would we return? Oh yes, especially in the hope the same team will be involved in running the place.

Mr & Mrs Bright, September 2018

Thanks to the Simpson Travel team and all at the Korsan Suites for yet another fabulous holiday. It was our third time there and we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect holiday. We arrived with high expectations, our holiday did not disappoint. Thank you – we will be rebooking again very soon!

Suzanne Prince, August 2018

This was our first visit to Turkey and to The Korsan Suites and it definitely won't be our last either. The Korsan Suites are wonderful, but the manager Memduh and his team make your stay at Korsan exceptional. I can't recommend them highly enough. We loved every aspect of our holiday from the luxurious transfers to the helpfulness of Kirsti, our Simpson Travel representative. Kalkan is beautiful, and although busy, has a really relaxed and happy vibe. Every meal we had in Turkey was beyond our expectations and we rolled home fat, but happy! The boat trip was a real highlight and the Hamam was a lovely added bonus. Thank you Simpson Travel and thank you Memduh!

Mrs Kelly, August 2018

From the moment I booked this holiday it has been a seamless experience. It was without doubt an amazing location and the Korsan Suites are perfectly furnished. The air-conditioning was very welcome and between this, the Jacuzzi and the pool it was easy to stay cool. The hotel manager, Memduh, could not have been more attentive and helpful and his team were so friendly. There are stunning views and it’s close to the harbour when you want a bit more hustle and bustle. This is the perfect spot to just relax and we are already looking into when we can go back.

Mrs Nevin, July 2018

The Korsan Suites are beautifully maintained with excellent facilities, commanding views and truly outstanding service. The staff go out of their way to make you welcome without ever being intrusive.

David, July 2018

The whole Korsan team were absolutely brilliant. Memduh was outstanding and such a lovely guy. Nothing was too much trouble. The whole experience at the Korsan Suites resulted in it being one of the best holidays we have ever had. Kirsti, the Simpson Travel representative, also deserves a mention, she was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. All in all we could not fault a thing, and the view from our balconies (yes more than one!) were breathtaking. The private Jacuzzi was also a lovely bonus and got used every day. We would recommend this holiday to anyone and we will definitely return.

Mr & Mrs Miller – Suite 8, June 2018

Just wonderful – clean, friendly, relaxing and extremely well run. This was our first Simpson Travel holiday but IT won’t be our last. Korsan Suites is perfect if you want a quiet, laidback holiday in spacious well-equipped apartments. Just a short walk from the bars and restaurants but very peaceful. We will be back.

Chris & Nick – Suite 6, June 2018

We had a fantastic time at The Korsan Suites. It exceeded our expectations and all the staff were so helpful! Thank you Simpson Travel.

Mrs Warrington, June 2018

Our whole holiday experience, from the first phone call to the return to the UK after a wonderful week in Kalkan, was second to none. Memduh at the Korsan Suites somehow manages always to be attentive and interesting and is a real joy. His greeting, as he showed us to our apartment, was a ‘welcome back home’, which is exactly what our suite immediately became (but with a significantly better view than we have at home!). Kirsti, the Simpson Travel representative’s visits were really appreciated, as we were able to glean information from her considerable knowledge of the local area, and the little touches were very thoughtful. Korsan Suites gives an exceptional holiday experience; with just eight suites it is small enough to meet your fellow holidaymakers quickly and easily, but gives you space in your apartment and on the private balconies to be away from others if that is what the moment calls for. This was our first holiday with Simpson Travel; next time we’re planning a trip we will know to come immediately to you, in the certain knowledge we will have a superb holiday to look forward to.

Ken & Karen Johnston – Suite 5, June 2018

Just an amazing place and experience.

Rachel, May 2018

We have not used Simpson Travel before but the quality of the service and the attention to detail is exceptional. It is clear that a good deal of thought has gone into what is required to make a relaxing holiday, we were very impressed and will certainly book again.

Mr Brewer, October 2017

This has been our second visit to the Korsan Suites this year. Again we have had a wonderful holiday. The service provided by your Kalkan representative Kirsti, Manager Memduh, Chef Ahmed, Housekeepers Zafer and Huriye has again been absolutely excellent.

Mrs Younger, October 2017

We cannot recommend enough the first class service of the Simpson Travel team and the quality of our holiday at the Korsan Suites in Kalkan. A perfect retreat in a beautiful setting made extra special by the wonderful staff there. We cannot wait to return again very soon.

Mrs Prince, September 2017

We cannot speak too highly of the team at the Korsan Suites. Memduh is quite extraordinary. The accommodation is fabulous. We had a great holiday. Thank you.

Mrs Buckland, September 2017

We had a fantastic family holiday at Korsan Suites in Kalkan with kids aged 16, 14 and 11. The accommodation was so comfortable and well appointed and the service from Memduh and his team was first class. The food was excellent and the place was spotless. Kalkan itself is lovely with endless restaurants and bars. The whole trip was effortless and so relaxing. There are plenty of boat trips and culture/sightseeing if you want to be busy but we spent more time than expected in the accommodation, around the pool as it was just so nice. Hopefully we'll be back at some point to explore further and enjoy a relaxing break.

Mrs Evans, September 2017

The Korsan Suites were idyllic – beautiful location and fabulous accommodation which made a very relaxing holiday. Kalkan town, a 15-minute walk away, with its many lovely restaurants was perfect.

Mrs Lorkin, September 2017

Spent a wonderfully relaxing two weeks at the Korsan Suites and couldn't fault it in any way. The team led by Memduh were friendly and helpful –nothing too much trouble. Would definitely recommend it.

Mrs Lovett, September 2017

My family of 5 (aged children 18,15,12) stayed at the Korsan Suites for two weeks in Kalkan and had the most fantastic holiday. The suites were immaculate and cleaned every day. The breakfasts were delicious especially the pancakes! The host, Memduh, made our holiday as nothing was too much trouble and he seemed to anticipate our every need. We loved Kalkan with its beach clubs, mesmerising sea, fantastic boat trips and pretty town with its roof top restaurants. We would definitely return.

Mrs Ake, August 2017

Second time to Kalkan. Would go again. Staff simply amazing, and worked 18-hour days, every day without a break. Quite extraordinary dedication. A most warm and friendly atmosphere and Kalkan itself quite delightful. All the restaurants are excellent and, by British standards, almost 'cheap'!

Mr Iles, August 2017

We cannot recommend Korsan Suites highly enough – convenient location, excellent facilities, magnificent view and the most amazing team, led by Memduh, there to anticipate our every need. Holiday heaven!

Mr Ellis, August 2017

The Korsan Suites are a delight. Roomy, well designed, very comfortable and with outstanding views. Great kitchen facilities for self-catering. The shared pool and lounging area are great and the bar and food service were very good indeed. Of particular note are the staff. Memduh runs the place with great expertise and is friendly, patient and extremely knowledgeable. The chef is excellent, producing lovely breakfasts, barbecues and a good à la carte menu. We were also very impressed by the discreet housekeepers who always waited until we had left the hotel before cleaning our suite. With plenty to do in the area and a relaxing base to return to we have had a great holiday. Many thanks.

Mr Jeffrey, July 2017

Thank you, thank you, thank you! We have had the most wonderful holiday and leave Korsan Suites heavy-hearted but feeling relaxed and rejuvenated thanks to the excellent care everyone has taken of us. Zafer and Huriye have ensured that both our apartment and the rest of the property have been beautifully maintained, Ahmet's kitchen has kept us fabulously fed at any moment, Volkan and Emirhan have waited on us beautifully and Memduh has been truly magnificent! Nothing has been too much trouble for anyone and we are truly grateful. Here's to planning our next visit.....

Vanessa, Mike, Thea and Polly, July 2017

This was our first stay at Korsan Suites – and what a pleasure it was! Memduh and the rest of the team were angels, nothing was too much trouble – even dealing with couple of unwelcome spiders on our balcony! The pancakes at breakfast are to die for. Fantastic location and facilities. We will certainly be back.

Miss Frackiewicz, June 2017

Korsan Suites are lovely, in a wonderful location, staff amazing, Memduh in particular but all of the staff lovely – can't do enough for you – the rep always available and very knowledgeable about the area. A wonderful holiday and we will be back yet again.

Mrs Harper, June 2017

First time in Turkey at Korsan Suites, Kalkan – beautiful place, immaculate, fabulous views, credit to the manager (Memduh) and his staff, Kalkan so many restaurants, fantastic food, friendly people, so much to do.The market, boat trips and everyone made us feel welcome.

Mr Curnin-Waterson, June 2017

A fantastic holiday and a first class level of service from the moment I booked! Nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be using Simpson Travel for future holidays.

Mrs Thompson, June 2017

Our stay at the Korsan Suites was enhanced by Memduh and the team, nothing is too much trouble and they work hard to make your stay extremely relaxing. The Suites are superb – spacious and comfortable. They are situated in a stunning peaceful location with views that are very pleasing to the eye. We also want to thank Kirsti for her friendly professionalism. Thank you all so much for a super holiday and we look forward to returning.

Steve & Tina, May 2017

This has been our fifth visit to the Korsan Suites over the past few years. We have had another wonderful holiday. The level of service from your representative Kirsti, the manager Memduh, chef Ahmed, housekeepers Zafer and Huriye has again been absolutely excellent.

Mrs Younger, May 2017

My two teenage children and I have had a wonderful week in Kalkan at Korsan Suites. It was the most relaxing and stunning holiday we could have wished for. Impeccably clean rooms, incredible views, wonderful staff, great food, plenty to do and see and everything went smoothly from beginning to end. Our apartment at Korsan Suites was spacious, very well equipped, and had two big balconies with incredible views – we really enjoyed having our own Jacuzzi/plunge pool. It was the last week of the holiday season in this area and we were blessed with perfect weather. Thank you so much Simpson Travel, we will be back for more...

Mrs Goddard, October 2016

Overall one of the best holidays we have ever had on a one-week sun break. Accommodation was an excellent standard, well chosen and run. This was our first use of Simpson Travel and we have been very impressed by all aspects of this holiday, we will almost certainly think to use you again as we had a very stress free experience this time, and that is what holidays are meant to be about.

Mr Whittle, October 2016

Simpson Travel offers a first class service from start to end. The standard of service, accommodation cannot be beaten and nothing is too much trouble. Can't wait for next year. Thank you for making our 2016 holiday very special.

Mrs Radley, September 2016

The Korsan Suites are in an excellent location being a 15-minute walk (3-minute taxi ride!) from town. They offer a beautiful view over the bay which I never tire of. Memduh and his team work tirelessly to ensure that the only thing you need to worry about is whether to relax in the sun or dip in the pool. The suites are kept spotless by Zafar and Huriye. Kalkan itself is a jewel of a resort that also offers some of the best food in the Mediterranean. We have been coming on and off over the last 20 years and have spent the last six at the Korsan Suites. The Simpson Travel representative, Kirsti, is always available for any help or advice to ensure that your holiday runs like clockwork. If you want somewhere to wind down then look no further.

Mr Shipp, September 2016

This was our third stay at the Korsan Suites in Kalkan and it is a firm favourite with us. The rooms are excellent, with large comfortable accommodation and breathtaking views from your private balconies. We stayed in one of the two-bedroom suites on the upper floors and nothing quite beats sitting in your personal Jacuzzi in the heat of the day and watching the boats coming and going in the bay below. The staff are really friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make your holiday special from start to finish. We will definitely be back again!

Mr Dowty, June 2016

Another wonderful holiday with Simpson Travel, giving us memories that we will treasure forever. Our children had the most fabulous time, which makes it an even more relaxing time for us as parents – even with a one-year old toddler!

Mrs White, May 2016

The Korsan Suites are everything they cracked up to be on the Simpson Travel website – breathtaking situation and very well appointed. But it is the staff who work there – from the manager through to the cleaners – who really make the place special. They are alert to every need but without any stiff formality – simply excellent service delivered in a very friendly way.

Ms Stewart, September 2015

Korsan Suites is one of the best holiday places we have stayed in.The apartments are beautifully appointed, the views stunning, and the staff cannot do enough for you. Please don't let Memduh leave!

Mr Potter, September 2015

First time that we have used Simpson Travel and probably the best holiday we have ever had. Everything was flawless. No hiccups whatsoever.

Mr Williams, August 2015

This was our first holiday in Turkey, and we had the most amazing time. Everyone at the Korsan Suites was so friendly and helpful, particularly Memduh and Mehmet. Our children are now older – aged 14, 16 and 18 – and we found that there was something for everyone to enjoy. We did boat trips, tours to historical sites, the gorge, and ate out most nights. We have been to Greece, France, Italy, Spain, the Caribbean, etc but this was our first time in Turkey and we all had a brilliant time. We were really impressed with the transfers to and from the airport, and will definitely book with Simpson Travel again as our experience was so good.

Mrs Saer, July 2015

Our Korsan Suites holiday in Turkey was amazing. The choice of accommodation and the booking itself were all faultless and easy thanks to the lovely staff at Simpson. Korsan Suites is breathtaking with stunning views over Kalkan bay. The staff at Korsan Suites couldn't be more courteous and helpful and the property is spotlessly clean. You don't want for anything. It is a luxury venue but without any pretension. Every need is catered for allowing one to instantly relax. I highly recommend it. The only sad part is when you have to leave. I will definitely return.

Mrs Drummond, July 2015

We have just returned from a week at Korsan Suites, Kalkan, Turkey. Thank you to Simpson Travel and Korsan for a fantastic holiday. The accommodation was fantastic, the views superb and the service and friendliness of the local staff faultless. It was a truly memorable holiday and will be very hard to beat. We will certainly be using Simpson Travel again.

Mr Carpenter, July 2015

This was our first time travelling with Simpson Travel and have to say this was probably the best holiday ever. The Korsan Suites in Kalkan were superb, the views fantastic, and the staff Memduh, chef Ahmet and Mehmet were all brilliant. The cleaners were very unobtrusive and very efficient. Kirsti, the rep, was great and very helpful and knowledgeable, the whole holiday was a wonderful experience, we have already booked with Simpson Travel to Turkey next year.

Mrs Daly, June 2015

Simpson Travel add an extra touch to a holiday and only use the very best places to stay. All your staff are very helpful and pleasing.We have travelled with this company for several years and have always enjoyed our holidays, thank you.

Mrs Bray, May 2015

Just returned from Turkey where I had a fabulous, relaxing week. First time with Simpson Travel and very impressed with the professional staff – everything was arranged (boarding cards, etc) without having to chase, and both legs of the journey were seamless. The accommodation was spotless and spacious, very well appointed in a great location. The staff were faultless. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Simpson Travel to anyone wanting a hassle-free holiday experience.

Ms Jamieson, May 2015

We booked Korsan Suites as a first taste of a Turkish Holiday. We were stunned by the incredible tranquility, magical location, and superb welcome by Memduh and his team. We really hadn't anticipated how amazing the atmosphere would be – instant relaxation – the only sound was the haunting call to pray from the minarets – just wonderful. Breakfast by the pool every morning was a joy, and the staff were like part of the family. Stunning immaculately clean suites – better than the photos. Kirsti, the rep, was fabulous, and always on hand for advice and tips. Highly recommended – can't wait to go back next year!!

Ms Crick, October 2014

A thoroughly enjoyable stay (again) at the Korsan Suites.

Mr Beauclerk, September 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Korsan Suites. Memduh and the staff were all amazing. Extremely luxurious accommodation – extremely clean and comfortable. The views are breathtaking. We have been travelling to Kalkan for over 14 years and this is the best place we have stayed at and we have been to the top hotels in Kalkan including The Regency and the Likya...

Miss Gorecki, September 2014

Stayed at the Korsan Suites in Kalkan, excellent holiday from booking to transfer back to the airport at the end of the holiday, all went really well, no problems, no worries. Just as a holiday should be. Very simple but some companies cannot achieve it!

Mr Pooley, September 2014

As many other customers have said, this was the first time we have traveled with Simpson Travel but I'm sure it won't be the last. We felt well-looked after throughout and the exclusive-to-Simpson accommodation was first class. Excellent service and well worth paying that little bit extra.

Ms Coombs, September 2014

I have to say that Korsan Suites staff are excellent. We have stayed at some lovely hotels and the subtle approach to quality service was wonderful. Kirsti was really helpful and always there if you needed her. This is the first time we have travelled with Simpson Travel but I am certain it will not be the last. Everything from the welcome by the taxi driver with a small gift, water and towels to being seen off by the hotel staff made us feel like five-star guests at all times. Thank you for sourcing and providing us with a fantastic holiday!

Mrs Eason, July 2014

Such a lovely place to go and relax in the sunshine. The resort was perfect for older families as there was something to do that suited everyone. The accommodation was beautiful, simple, luxurious and spotlessly clean. The staff were so kind and thoughtful. We were treated like individuals, not just one of the herd. A fantastic high quality service from booking to returning home. Thank you.

Mr McGill, July 2014

We've just come back from the most amazing two-week stay at the Korsan Suites in Kalkan. Memduh and the staff were more than helpful and couldn't have done anymore to accomodate us (Ramazan – I love the pancakes!). We had a three-bedroom suite which was absolutely gorgeous with a fully equipped kitchen. The views across the bay were to die for and having your own Jacuzzi was a bonus!. All in all we had the most fantastic holiday and are already planning on going back next year. Thanks Kirsti (our rep), Memduh and all the staff at Korsan Suites.

Mrs McGill, July 2014

Another enjoyable and memorable stay at Korsan Suites, Kalkan. Excellent facilities, friendly and knowledgeable staff, beautiful location.

Mrs Robinson, June 2014

A wonderful travel experience from the minute we booked, to arriving at the airport and the actual location. A relaxing experience.

Mr Mercieca, June 2014

With the Simpson Travel checking in desk at the airport, the fleet of new white cars on arrival in Turkey and helpful reps, our holiday got off to an easy start. It just got better as we met the staff at the Korsan Suites who made our holiday fantastic. They were so friendly and helpful. A lovely place to stay, and Kalkan itself is a vibrant and fun place to eat out with so many great restaurants to choose from. I would definitely recommend staying in Kalkan and the Korsan Suites, having hotel facilities but with the privacy of your own apartment, has the best of both worlds.

Mr Doherty, May 2014

Everything about the holiday was perfect. The suites were gorgeous with breathtaking views of the coast and the staff in the hotel did everything they could to make us welcome. Kalkan is a lovely town, full of rooftop restaurants, every one with a sea view. A special mention for Memduh, our hotel manager who kept the children entertained and even offered to find one of the local tortoises!

Mrs White, May 2014

Thank you so much to Emme and the staff at Korsan Suites – her insight into Turkey and the food, wine and area was really helpful. We had such a lovely time exploring the ancient Lycian sites, travelling up into the hills and relaxing on Patara beach in the afternoons. The Turkish cuisine was a revelation and we had excellent food and local wine. It was a perfect tonic to face the winter months in England. I hope Simpson Travel will still use the Korsan Suites as we would love to go again.

Mrs Garland, October 2013

Had the best holiday, Kalkan is just such a wonderful place to go, great food, accommodation, friendly people, just FAB. Didn't want to come home.

Mrs Harris, October 2013

This was the second time we have travelled with Simpson Travel and we remain entirely impressed. The level of care and consideration we received after news arrived of a serious family illness back in the UK was excellent.

Mr Norwell, September 2013

Our first time in Turkey and the Korsan Suites, Kalkan did not disappoint. Positioned to the west of the bay we felt secluded but it was only a 15-minute walk to the Old Town. The evening we arrived, we were treated to the most amazing Turkish meal, a real plus. The two-bedroom suite was very spacious and our only regret was not being able to use the Jacuzzi as the weather had turned unseasonably cold. As a famous film once said "We will be back".

Mr Hyde, September 2013

Fantastic holiday, great suites, just far enough from the main town, lovely staff.

Mr Christie, September 2013

We have just returned from a wonderful two-week stay at the glorious Korsan Suites in Kalkan. Emine and her staff couldn't have been more helpful, and even gave us some spices and potatoes when my husband wanted to cook us his own version of Moussaka! The suites were beautifully presented and very well kitted out. Having your own kitchen was ideal, since it was wonderful to choose between going out to one of the hundreds of fantastic restaurants in Kalkan, or to eat in. I loved the small touches like having a large collection of books that you could borrow, or choose a good DVD to watch during an evening in. All in all we had the most fantastic holiday and have many marvellous memories, as well as nearly 1,000 photos. Thanks Simpson Travel, Emine and her team and Kirsti.

Mrs Thornton-Smith, September 2013

This was our first time to Turkey and we had our reservations. How wrong we were!! The Korsan Suites in Kalkan were outstanding, the service provided by Emine and Ramazan was faultless. They could not do enough for us. The position of the apartments was ideal, just enough distance from the hustle and bustle but an easy walk in and taxi ride home (very cheap taxi, may I add!). We went for my father's 70th birthday celebrations and it was certainly a week to remember, thank you Simpson Travel!

Mrs Upton, August 2013

Another fantastic holiday, already looking for next year. We really like locations that do not need a car, and are self-catering with local shops for groceries. l have so enjoyed the hotel/self-catering combination. Hope to see more smaller properties as the villas are often too big.

Ms Hamlet, August 2013

I would not hesitate to travel with Simpson Travel again, the service they offered and the excellent quality of accommodation at the Korsan Suites in Kalkan, was exceptionally good. The manager, staff and Simpson Travel rep made us very welcome and were so helpful, all the arrangements went very smoothly. The apartment and pool area were so luxurious and we all loved the view so much, we really didn't want to come home. Getting a taxi into the town (10 TL one-way) was easy and we didn't need a car, we also got a taxi to Kaş (140 TL rtn), you can walk into the old town and we tended to walk down and taxi back. Restaurants did get busy once the summer holidays started but Emine at the Korsan Suites can book a table for you and this would be necessary during busy times. Definitely recommended and we will go back!

Mrs Green, July 2013

We have just come back from another holiday in Kalkan at the fabulous Korsan Suites. As before, a wonderful holiday in an amazing location in luxurious accommodation. As always, Simpson Travel looked after us so well and ensured that the whole holiday was hassle-free and relaxed. Our only difficulty is trying to switch ourselves back on after two stress-free weeks away – though we have already re-booked for next year which helps!

Mr Potter, June 2013

We had a fabulous holiday with Simpson Travel. If you want to be sure of top quality accommodation and service you won't be disappointed.

Ms Roskilly, June 2013

Quality experience with Simpson Travel. Fabulous accommodation and location at the Korsan Suites – thank you to Emine and her team for looking after us so well!

Mrs Lappin, May 2013

The holiday exceeded all our expectations. The quality of the accommodation was fantastic and we were all made to feel very special.

Mrs Drury, May 2013

I would have no hesitation in travelling with Simpson Travel again as I can be assured that their standards are what I have come to look for over the years with friendly helpful staff to help me on my way to the best holiday ever.

Mrs Harrison, May 2013

From start to finish, we can only describe the service from Simpson Travel as five star. Malin was extremely helpful and every query was responded to quickly and effectively. The arrival and welcome at the airport in Dalaman was great, we felt very special when we were shown to our own private car for our transfer! The accommodation was out of this world! We cannot fault anything! Emine, the Manageress at the hotel gave us a personal welcome and showed us to our apartment. Our rep, Kirsti, was brilliant, very helpful and knowledgeable. We loved every minute of our holiday and will use Simpson Travel again! Thank you!

Mrs Dearing, May 2013

The staff were so welcoming on our arrival, the food was wonderful – cooked by Ahmed and his helper. Ramazan was a diamond, his attentiveness was one in a million. Emine, the manageress, makes the BEST mint lemonade I have ever tasted and no wish was too much for her. The suite was out of this world and the views stunning! If you are very lucky you will see one or two turtles lingering around at the back of the Korsan Suites. Overall, Kalkan is a lovely village, with breathtaking views over the harbour and we will only book with Simpson Travel!

Mr Gwilt, May 2013

A wonderful holiday at the Korsan Suites at Kalkan, great manager in Emine and her staff – nothing was too much trouble and the fittings within the suites were of the highest quality and everything well maintained.

Mr Cameron, May 2013

Very happy to recommend Simpson Travel – they care about providing a personal service for the whole of the holiday.

Mrs Davison, April 2013

Fabulous holiday in a beautiful relaxing location at the wonderful Korsan Suites.

Mrs Mason, April 2013
