“Wonderful, unique swimming pool”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This was our second trip to Dalyan and Villa Samimi. Dalyan is a fantastic holiday location. There is so much to do and yet also feels quite small and not too developed - a hidden gem! We wouldn't stay anywhere else if we went back to Dalyan. Dot and Dondu were so helpful with the booking and looking after us when we were there. The villa is beautiful and had everything we needed. The main highlight for me is the 50m pool because I love swimming and I can't find anywhere else with a pool like this just shared between a few villas so I'm sure we will be back before too long I hope! Highly recommend Dalyan but Villa Samimi in particular.

Many thanks for your lovely review. Amazingly Dalyan has stayed the same and not become commercialised - we still love it for that very reason. The pool is hard to beat for us keen swimmers :) I will pass on your comments to Dondu as well.
Appreciated and hope you manage to visit the villa again. Dot and Iain

“Lovey villa in a peaceful location with a unique pool”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 for a stay in August 2013

outskirts of town, there is a feeling of space, and although Villa Samimi is one of a set of four villas in a row, there is no sense of being crowded with each villa having a lot of privacy. The shared pool is magnificent with each villa having its own private pool area offset from the main stretch. We spent many hours sitting under the pergola, shaded and surrounded by well-developed shrubs and sweet smelling jasmin. The villa itself has everything you could want with effective air-conditioning (important in August), and well-equipped. Our party consisted of 6 adults. The villa was big enough to accommodate us all comfortably, and while the room at the top is better suited to children because of the low headroom, this was not a problem. Dondu, who looks after the villa, was efficient, very helpful and she always had a smile on her face. She and her husband arranged some trips for us including a private boat trip at sundown which finished late in the evening. It was one of the highlights of our holiday. A special mention must be made of Dot, the co-owner, who handled every query I had with incredible efficiency. She has bent over backwards to help us in every possible way. I would recommend this villa alone on the basis of Dot and Dondu. That the villa itself is also so nice, means that I highly recommend Villa Samimi.

“A gem of a place to stay!”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We arrived in the small hours of the morning, but that was no bother. Dondu was very helpful throughout. Breakfast in the Samimi garden was a lovely way to start each day and it was a great, quiet place to relax later in the afternoon. The long pool was great for a either a cool dip, or a few lengths exercise. Inside the Villa was comfortable and had all we needed; the air-conditioning was much appreciated!. We particularly liked that there was no wifi in the Villa, although our two boys, a 16 and a 17 year old, were less so. Umpteen excellent places to eat out (and lots of places for wifi) were an easy 15-20 min walk to the town centre and there was much to see around Dalyan. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return.

“Wonderful, peaceful, fantastic!”
Reviewed 12 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

What can I say about Villa Samimi and Dalyan? Perfect, relaxing, friendly, historic, magical. All of this doesn't do it justice! It was quite simply the best holiday we have ever had. It was all so simple and well organised from the first email to Dot, to being met at the airport and meeting Dondu, to the ease of getting into the town and all the fantastic restaurants and shops. Everyone we met was so friendly and helpful. The boat trip to the beach was amazing - the views of Caunos en route were stunning. The beach was so clean and beautiful surrounded by mountains. The Saturday market is not to be missed - fantastic bargains to be had, and the haggling is great fun. The villa was lovely, clean and well equipped. Dondu was a star - organising water and gas refills at a moments notice, very friendly and always there when you needed her but never intrusive. The pool is amazing - my two teenage boys were never out of it, and their swimming has improved enormously. Dalyan casts a spell over you, so much so that we're already planning next years holiday. Highly recommended - you won't be disappointed!

“Brilliant Villa in a fabulous Location”
Reviewed 25 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We have had a brilliant holiday staying at the Villa Samimi, so relaxing with everything you need (a home from home). Lovely meals out and people really friendly. Lots to do if you want it or you can just chill out, would definately go back a weeks not long enough.
