“Second visit a real gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2011

Last years holiday was very good when Memhet was running the bar ( he is no longer at the Doga as he is doing his national service ) however this year was excellent - Jack who ran the bar made our holiday. He and the staff could not do enough for my husband and I while we had a superb, relaxing holiday. Jacks cocktails - even though they had no names - were to die for. The food served in the holiday was some of the best food we ate while in Cesme. Ebo was the best educated,well mannered (kind sir) of a waiter you could ever wish for. An excellent run hotel, everyone was so friendly and we were treated like one of the family.

We have just returned from our Holiday to Cesme and our stay at the Hotel Doga.
First the hotel .. Well what can I say it was everything we had wished for and more , from the moment we arrived we were welcomed by the staff , and the guests that were already there . Massive thanks to Simon the owner and his lovely wife who sorted out our fridge and hairdryer crisis immediately nothing was ever too much trouble ( even when i inadvertantley took a dip in the pool in my white skirt and she got it cleaned for me ) and the other staff including Ferhat (Jack) . Ibo, the lovely Brook , and the rest of the staff you were all the people that make the Hotel so special .The pool area and the bar are something else No other hotel in Cesme comes close to what this hotel provides, the sun shines all day on the pool and at 17.17 its beer o clock time at the bar :) Yes the rooms are basic so dont go expecting luxury but the setting in between lime and plum trees is beautiful and the rooms are cleaned every day with clean bedding and towells too. After a few days we started to get a bit fed up of Effes so we asked Jack if he did Cider and although he didnt within 2 days he got some in for us now that is service .The hotel is situated about 10 mins stroll from the main part of Cesme and yes there is a slight uphill walk to get back but after having a large meal in town perhaps that is just whats needed .
Restaurants ... Here are a few I would recommend
The Friendly Corner .. very good food at a very reasonable price try there Chicken curry yummy
The Star Restaurant ... Excellent for steaks as well as other food of course
Ibos ... the place the Ex pats meet up and excellent food
The Olive Tree ... the Beef Stroganoff is out of this world .
No Problem Bar ... Good food and a lift home if you are lucky
There are other restaurants that we tried but cant remember the names sorry but I must say we did not have a bad meal anywhere.
We met some lovely people on our stay including Ian who was an absolute godsend he took us under his wing and took us to Alacati , Chiftlic and Illica Beach . Steve and Annette, Pauline and Gordon , Anne and Barry , Kathy and Tommy , Nicky and Henry and everyone else we met there.
Trips.... there are a few trips I would recommend , For The boat trip there are the Bang bang boats with music all day if thats what you want but I would recommend the St Mary as its a much quieter boat which will give you a much more relaxing day and a beautiful lunch its a bit more expensive at 50 lire but well worth it.
Ephesus is about 1/2 hours away Thomas cook do a very good trip its £65 which I think was a bit steep but to be honest its worth paying a bit more to take the hassle out of trying to organise it yourself.
Altinkum Beach ( golden Beach ) my most favourite day out 3 lire on the bus and you are taken to heaven , lovely sand , clear water ( albeit a bit cool) and peace and quiet .
Cesme Castle , 3 lire to go in and the views are stunning
All in all I would recommend Cesme as a place to go in Turkey , No its not Bodrum , Marmaris or even Ichmeler , theres NO sky sports or English 99p breakfasts so if thats what you are looking you will be dissapointed . Its a lazy , chilled out , beautiful part of the world that delivered everything we wanted from our holiday this year and more. Never has 2 weeks seemed so long and relaxing and for that feeling we thank Cesme and particually the Hotel Doga from the bottom of our hearts

Beautiful hotel with great a great pool!

The owners were out every day greeting us and making us feel more than welcome: You can really tell this is a family run business!
The bar stays open as long as there are still customers in so you are never shoo-ed away from the place (The music is turned down though for those sleeping thank goodness!)
Will be back to cesme soon and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!

This little hotel could be so much better if the bar and restaurant was not rmanaged by Mehmet. The bar and food prices for a 2 star hotel were ridiculous and more than three guests had to complian after their bills for food and drinks were incorrect, in one case £40 more!!!
I would urge the owner to change the bar management otherwise this nice lkittle hotel will fast gain a very bad reputation for ripping off its guests.

Our room was basic and the bed was big and comfy. Well cleaned.
The breakfast was also basic but adaquate.
The pool was quite big for a small hotel but freezing cold; the gardens were pretty.
The staff were attentive but watch your change! Us and at least 1 other couple were short changed by Mehmet. Drinks are a similar price to UK.
Cesme harbour was a 5 min walk. There are no lively bars and it's quite boring; however it did feel very safe.
