We stayed at The Escape for 5 nights at the end of our 2 week holiday to Turkey. We wanted a nice place to relax, after having walked on the Lycian Way for 8 days. We had read the reviews prior to booking and were suitably impressed. Our expectations were high. We did think that possibly the reviews were too good to be true, we needn't have worried.
The Escape is more than we had expected from the photos and reviews. The owners Susan and Chris are excellent hosts; their attention to detail, and enthusiasm for what they do is remarkable. We stayed in the suite which was very well equipped and spacious. The location of the property is lovely and quiet.
In an evening there was the option to either dine in with the other guests and experience Susan's excellent cuisine and the couples hospitality, or Chris was more than happy to offer guests return travel to Gocek so that you can enjoy the evenings out.
We are already looking forward to arranging our next stay.
We stayed for two nights in a superior pool side room which was worth the splurge. It was the perfect place to wind down after a busy week in Istanbul. Chris and Susan are the perfect hosts and made our stay very special. Highlights include Susan's gourmet cooking, a music night and the beautiful pool. I am not surprised by the consistently high ratings and fulsome comments of the previous guests.
Our preference for hotels is the Small and Boutique category and "The Escape" suited us from the first instance. The location is set in a small hamlet in the hills above Gocek and offers peace and tranquility
The personal attention, the style and cleanliness of the rooms, pool and facilities are second to none.
We must also comment on the exquisite meals - they got the "WOW" factor. Using local produce we were treated to a series of gourmets delights, these were complimented with great local wines.
Susan and Chris made the extra effort to ensure we had an excellent holiday because nothing was too much trouble and for that we would like to thank you
We were taken here last night to meet Susan and Chris by friends who had stayed earlier in the year.
What a wonderful experience for our 'taster' visit. Great welcome and the whole place took our breath away.
Peace, beauty, great food and company, we will be booking for next year.!
I was greeted by the owners and immediately made to feel at home, my room had been upgraded to a poolside room, spotlessly clean, light and cool. I ate there and really enjoyed Susan's cooking, she works with local ingredients and every meal I had was delicious. Chris also keeps some good Biological wines in his canteen that are well worth tasting.
My only complaint is that I had to leave! It will be hard to find somewhere else as nice. Thank you
