When picking 4reasons hotel+bistro for one week out of 2 weeks of vacation in the Yalikavak area, the background was that me and my wife wanted to spent some quality time together in a boutique hotel at a great location in tranquility and style.
Upon arriving at the hotel we saw that the requirements regarding the location were definitely met. 4reasons is situated nicely in the hills overlooking the bay area of Yalikavak and the views especially during sunset are stunning.
The welcome by the staff was professional and we were guided to our room (Passionate room category, something like 180€ per night), which was looking quite...functional. This means, everything was really clean and neat and nice, but all the bits and pieces in the room were somewhat sterile and it was somehow missing that charm that you are looking for in a small, individual, charming type of hotel.
The pool area was nice, but crowded at day time due to the fact that the beach is quite far away and especially families take comfort in having such possiblity to swim and relax close-bay the room. This also caters for a decent level of noise which is somewhat distracting and hindering if you want to relax. Of course, this is highly depending on which time you are travelling in.
The food served at the hotel is good, but, at least for our taste, the cuisne was a little to global, with too few distinguished influences from the very region the hotel is located in.
This is probably also depending on the individual person, but, if I want to eat great pasta, I will go to Italy, while I would probably not head there for Kebab.
The service was good, yet, very professional which meant that we were also feeling like being treated as clients - missing this last bit of warmth which makes you feel "home" while being away. One thing which we were a little astonished of were the owners relaxing at the pool side together with their family and friends all day long and also dining there like being guests. This is something I have never seen in a boutique hotel before.
Concluding, this is definitely a nice hotel at a great location, but I think that the pricing is very ambitious compared to what you get.
