As a family of 8 adults and 2 children we recently stayed here for 2 weeks. The villa itself was nice enough, looked just as the pictures showed. The rooms were spacious and tidy and reasonably clean, had clean sheets and towels. Aircon worked well and was adjustable in each room to your own preference. Child friendly with stair gates, high chair (although this was filthy so we didn't bother using it) and travel cot (this was very very uncomfortable and needed substantial added padding to be sleep able in). The pool was nice although very deep with no shallow end so only adults could stand in it. There is a hot tub however this was also too deep for our 15 month old to stand in. Location is great, quiet area with stunning mountain scenery yet close to town and restaurants and shops. There were some negatives however. The cleaner never came after the first week to change bedding and wash towels although she was supposed to. The dishwasher didn't wash properly. No wifi as apparently it wasn't working which was a big disappointment. A couple of the showers were really weak at the best of times and turned from boiling hot to freezing cold when you were showering. One of the downstairs ensuites had a fowl smell of sewage most of the time too. There are only showers in the villa no baths which was very awkward with our baby. There was no security around the villa, anyone could walk in through the gate to the pool area and also could get into our garden from other surrounding villas. The area surrounding the pool felt small and cramped and not very sociable with no a lot of playing room for children and wasn't very safe either. A final comment id like to make is that we arrived in the middle of the night and were assured there would be plenty of bottled water and some food for breakfast for us. This wasn't the case, there was 1 bottle of water for 10 of us and nothing else and as it was the middle of the night we couldn't go out to buy some. Overall I think this could be a better villa with some improvements however I wouldn't return.

This was our second year in dalyan having last year stayed at the opposite end of the strip in a larger villa. We decided to come to dalyan as it's a really nice place that's not been over run with tourist and the locals are very sincere and friendly,they don't expect your hard earned cash but they do earn it. Onto the location, it's ideally situated at the top end of the strip with a very pleasant walk into the centre via the river, stop off at the okylanas bar the guys in there are great. The villa sits in a group of 4 and you will hear your neighbours having fun but I never see an issue with listening to people enjoying their hols. The villa itself has everything you can ask for, even small things like beach towels are provided so you can save some weight in the cases.
Maid and gardeners are friendly and just crack on and do their thing. There were bikes but of the four three had punctures, nothing to do with villa but I think if someone did take the bikes out and got a puncture it's beyond me why they couldn't fix it? After all there's two repair kits there for such a problem, that's previous tenants laziness in my mind.
Overall the villa is great value and I would not think twice about recommending this property.
Couple of eating tips, the white house restaurant at the bottom of strip next to the rock bar is cracking, look out for vodka the dog,lastly the steak house at the over end looking onto the river has the best steak I've had abroad, not the cheapest but worth every lire! Enjoy
