Fodor's Expert Review Happy Caretta

Kaunos Sok., Dalyan, Mugla, 48600, Turkey Fodor's Choice

This modest, family-run hotel is in a shady garden on the banks of the Dalyan River, with breathtaking views of the ancient Kaunosian rock tombs from the large and comfortable riverside terrace, where you can enjoy a traditional breakfast or grilled fish supper in absolute tranquility. The rather cloistered rooms are simply decorated in wood and terra-cotta-style tiles with white stucco. You can swim in the river off a small jetty in front of a splendid row of cypress trees or wait for a boat to pick you up and take you to the nearby beach.

PROS

  • friendly service
  • nice dock area to swim with fish and the odd sea turtle
