    Amazing swimming at the beach / rocks area! Spent time there not in your room..
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Grand Suite
    • Stayed 7 nights

    The design of the rooms is very basic and not very considered at all and interior design doesn't match the beautiful exterior architecture. Some rooms don't come with a shower although listed with shower. The breakfast was very basic and not authentically Turkish and could be much better.

    The view and swimming of the beach area rocks was the most amazing part of the hotel and certainly makes up for everything ! Several pools also available onsite. Most of the staff were extremely friendly, kind and helpful also !

    There are lots of steps, but that's not surprising as the hotel is on a steep hill leading down to the sea. However, the steps have been improved since last year.

    Amazing views across the bay from this hotel. The beach club, beach bar and restaurant are alll great and the staff friendly and helpful.

    Lots of steps, though this adds to hotel's charm. I would have like another pillow and I'm sure they would have supplied one but I didn't notice until I'd gone to bed.

    Beautiful location, fab room with great facilities and a sea view. Excellent friendly staff. The food was great. Beach club and pool great. There is no beach, but man made decks scattered around the rocky cove.

    On arrival we were told very little about the facilities of the hotel or given any advice about the place. You had to figure everything out for youself. An information pack in the room would have been good.

    Fabulous room, hotel setting was beautiful, although not within walking distance to town.

    There are a lot of steps to get down to the sea...hard work especially on the way back up...sometimes pollution washed into the bay... not sure if it came off boats or another hotel...or even the Kulube itself...the lunchtime restaurant was excellent but the evening one had a very limited menu

    The 'upper' wifi was quite poor ( 2x wifi addresses provided, as hotel is a stepped address - many layers of rooms, from road and above, down to near the 'beach'/cove. )

    Another excellent visit to the Kulube Hotel; wonderful staff, incredible location with its own private cove; a place our family will want to keep coming back to. Any imperfections are wiped out for the reasons above.

    The top floor rooms in the deluxe building are many, many stairs away and far from the main pool and beach cove. Upgrade if you can. The reception staff were great, some of the restaurant staff seemed quite abrupt and rude at times; unlike Turkish hospitality.

    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    Nothing really. However, over the last 18 months or so the owner has invested very heavily in making impressive improvements to the hotel. As this is a rolling programme of improvements it has left a few of the original rooms and facilities by the sea looking a little tired by comparison. But improvements appear to be very much in hand.

    The Kulube's location within Kalkan is superb, an oasis of calm by the sea that is within relatively easy reach of the hustle and bustle of Kalkan harbour. The Kulube team are fantastic, they're very attentive and always eager to please and nothing is too much trouble to ensure the guests enjoy their stay. The Chef and his team prepare some of the best food in Kalkan. For freshness and quality of ingredients it has to be the best value in town!! This was our third visit over a number of years and the owner has ensured the quality of service has remained consistently high. We'll definitely be back!!

    No complaints but less mobile guests should be warned the steps are challenging between all the levels. "Toiletries" consisted of a tiny bar of soap. Shampoo please!

    The spacious room (in fact two rooms) with view but not in direct sun.Two pools on different levels provide sunning opportunities but we preferred to descend to the private cove with clear water and ideal bathing. Those who do so are joined by "Molly" a golden retriever who loves to swim with guests. Breakfast is taken on the pool bar level, lunch at another lower terrace and and dinner at another so no sense of crowding. Food good and reasonable prices (esp snacks). WiFi free & dependable. Our room-maid did wonderful sculptures with the towels on the beds.
