This has been along time coming, it's the first review I've left on trip adviser.but on reflection only fair to share with others
The area, if you havnt been is outstandingly beautiful,being in a conservation area, buildings are minimally invasive, without the usual tower blocks.
The villa is spacious, cool with air con, in all areas, big seating area in side and out, thoughtful decor, and comfortable beds.
The gardens are large, pretty and private.
The pool is attractive and adequate, not over big, but enough to chill and cool off.plenty of loungers.
Bikes provide an easy form of transport, although nowhere is far, unless you attempt to cycle yo the beach...a mistake, my husband made, as the mountain got in the wayhe was saved by a kind dolmas driver..who put him and the bike in the bus.
The area he's a tranquil feel to it, and really does have to be seen to be appreciated, the riverside bars and restaraunts brilliant.
Am coming back, if there's space after the secrets out.
this was our second villa in dalyan in two years and we thought that it maybe a bit to far out for us but as it was it was perfect, our whole stay from booking to leaving was a dream, Charles Bentley the owner and his team at dalyan villas.com and oruc travel couldnt of been more helpful or accomadating, the villa is stunning and clean, with plenty of space so you didnt feel the need to go out all the time and when you did it was a lovely 10min strole or a 90 second ride on the villa mountain bikes. this villa has everything you need, see you next year.
We stayed at Dalyan Jewel the last two weeks of July as a family of nine. Communication over the booking was brilliant, transfer was easy and Erkan met us at the villa and explained everything. The villa was spacious and clean with plenty of seating for everyone. The kids were happy as they had their own bedrooms and bathrooms, wifi and the gorgeous pool. We had several bbq's in the garden and enjoyed watching the wildlife. A pair of storks nesting at the entrance to the garden, gecko's, owls and bats were about every day or evening. A restaurant called Jiks was down the road heading into the centre and they made us takeaway salads to have with the bbq's. The butchers and supermarket were in the same vicinity so shopping was easy. We often used the bikes from the villa to pick up takeaways and have a cheeky cocktail too! Erkan arranged a boat trip for us and it was a fantastic day out, lovely food and plenty of snorkelling. This was our third visit to Dalyan and by far the best due to the villa and Erkan being so helpful. All of the restaurants we visited were great, the food and service was faultless. It was also cheap as the exchange rate is so good. Beware your waistlines! As a family, we could not have wished for a better holiday. Very sad to go and definately want to return. We have visited Turkey six times, Dalyan is our favourite place. The people, wildlife and food are all very special.
Villa Dalyan Jewel is a beautiful villa well equipped with a lovely garden and pool area. Its a good 15 to 20 min pleasant walk to the centre of Dalyan. My family and I had a great holiday here. Charles the owner went out of his way to be extremely helpful and provide assistance when needed. Cheers Charles
We took our family (2 daughters, son in-laws and 5 grandchildren aged between 9 & 20, 11 of us altogether) to stay at the Jewel in August and had one of our BEST family holidays ever. The villa is fabulous, lot's of room and really well furnished, the garden is really large with a storks nest on a pole at the entrance to the villa, it was amazing watching it come and go. The pool is brilliant, we all had lot's of fun in it and when ever we managed to get the children out of the pool they liked to go into the Kosk (they called it their quiet reading area). There is a large eating area outside with a BBQ next to it and a really good butchers not too far away. It is just a 15 minute walk into town with lot's of good restaurants and the people are so friendly. There was also bikes at the villa, which were great for a morning bike ride.The only down side was that we had only booked for 8 day, everyone agreed that they will definitely be going back next year and staying longer.
