The staff at the Meldi are extremely helpful, most speak good English and are always prepared to assist. The rooms are basic and very clean. Each room has a small balcony and air conditioning, many rooms have a great views of the sea and town. The bar is open all day and food can be ordered throughout the day. The hotel is approx 10 minutes walk from central Kalkan and 20 minutes walk to the harbour and town beach....many really good and inexpensive restaurants are also nearby as well as a large range of shops. You will not need a car as everything is within a short walk ! We have been visiting the Meldi for many years as have many other English families and I cannot rate it too highly enough ! Finally, the Meldi is very well priced, additionally you only pay anything when you leave.…
A lovely hotel offering honest value, great service and a good location to be based at. Many people return each year which is reassuring in this ever changing times. During the covid years the opportunity has been taken to uplift the room furniture and generally upgrade ready for this season. The pool offer is fantastic as is the general atmosphere from reception to departure. Hotel prices are fair and reasonable as is the exchange rate. As is the case everywhere in Turkey £ cash gets the best exchange rate. Use of a card here adds 3% to cover the cost. Don’t forget when you pay the bar bill at the end to work out the tip for the staff that you would have been paying elsewhere. The staff work hard for your enjoyment and deserve it!
We have been going to the Meldi twice a year (June/September) since 2005. We have had an amazing time every time we go and have met some wonderful people, many of whom we stay in touch with and visit frequently when we are home. Most of the guests are serial offenders like ourselves who also visit twice a year. The staff are wonderful and always ready to help with any of our needs. They are also really good fun.... very important I feel. The hotel is clean and comfortable and you certainly get a 5 star welcome. Nothing is too much trouble. Our rooms are booked for the foreseeable future and we count the days until we are back again. We call this our second home and this is how it feels Keep up the good work Fatih and team.
I had heard that this was a good hotel. There are much better in Kalkan. Sleep quality was poor. Wild dogs roam the streets outside of the hotel. Beds were rather hard and not comfortable. when eating our supper the hotel pet dog would jump up beside us and try to eat food off my plate. The owner and the bar staff saw this but did nothing to stop it.
The excellent staff at the Meldi give the highest standard of friendliness, welcome and service you could ever ask for in a beautiful setting. Thank you so much to Faith, Halil and all the team for going the extra mile to make our holiday special, you are special and exceptional people and the hotel is the most relaxing and welcoming place we could ever wish to stay.
Been going here now for 19 years and this hotel never fails to impress. Sahap and his team treat us all like family and nothing is too much trouble. The chef runs a brilliant kitchen producing superb, tasty and freshly cooked dishes. The rooms are simple but very clean and comfortable. We noted that the bedrooms had been recently decorated and refurnished; the bathrooms would benefit from a refurb as they are now getting a bit tired! However, this is not enough to stop us from going again. The pool area is beautiful and the positioning of the bar and food service areas is just perfect. A truly relaxing place to stay.
Just returned from a fabulous 18 days staying in Kalkan at the Meldi for the first time. The location, room, staff, pool and breakfast were all top notch. We couldn't have had a better holiday. We will definitely be back very soon.
The hotel is a better than decent place to relax and unwind , loads of space around the pool to enjoy with a lovely bar and seating area for lunch , Rooms are a good size , good storage and a pretty good shower with loads of hot water , staff are all excellent and help add to the ambience around the hotel , Location is great with an easy 10 min walk to the main eating and drinking areas All in all a fab hotel and would stay again
I am a regular visitor to the Meldi and as always the staff provided an amazing friendly welcome . The hotel has a lovely pool in a picturesque setting. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk from bustling Kalkan with its many excellent restaurants. The Meldi provides fantastic value for money and a memorable holiday experience
It's been a long time since we last visited Kalkan and we decided to return to the Meldi for our holiday. Once again we were treated royally by the wonderful staff. Walkable from the town, it is the perfect location to enjoy the amenities in Kalkan. The pool is a great size, with a pool bar to relax and enjoy lunches and drinks. Nothing is a bother to the staff, you can't fail to love it.
