Harpy Hotel - just right! by Esabs
8 / 10

Emma and Will - Sept 06

We have just returned from a lovely weeks holiday at the Harpy Hotel in Kalkan. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, in a quiet location, great views, lovely people, good turkish beer and lots of lovely restaurants then Harpy/Kalkan is perfect.

Our room was great with lots of space, big beds and an amazing view from our balcony! The balcony is bigger than my lounge! Pool was a brilliant size and the sun loungers allowed you to relax whilst looking out over the sea/mountains. Hotel is also spotlessly clean.

5 minutes walk from the hotel is the Kalamar beach club. Here you can snorkel, learn to dive or just chill out. Food is also fab and the 'chill out' zone with all the comfy cushions certainly helps for an afternoon siesta!

The Harpy hotel is situated about 15 minutes walk from Kalkan but the hotel has a regular mini bus which takes 5 minutes and really reliable. Taxi is also cheap. There are so many restaurants in Kalkan and we did not have one bad meal, amazing seafood but local cuisine was fantastic.

One of the best things about the Harpy hotel was the staff that worked there. They would remember everyones names and would make you feel so welcome, without being intrusive.

We had a fantastic time and would certainly go back again.

Fabulous Hotel by sugarrain
8 / 10

We stayed at the Harpy in July 06 and it was a fabulous experience. The hotel rooms were above average, with gigantic beds, a lovely stylish bathroom and a balcony big enough to throw your own party on. The staff (Bahri, Doosh, Keno) were the friendliest I have ever had the pleasure of encountering and made the holiday a truly memorable one. The hotel food was outstanding and therefore made the task of dining out in the local restaurants very difficult! As the hotel is around 20mins from the town and in a fairly quiet location, it may not suite families with very young children, there is a courtesy bus however, which is highly efficient and reliable. The hotel has an air of exclusivity about it, something which I believe is difficult to come by. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to any one and cannot sing its praises highly enough.

Good rooms average hotel by HOSTAN
8 / 10

The hotel is 3-4 kilometers from Kalkan, and giving view partly on Kalamar bay. The rooms are recently renovated so they are very comfortable to stay.

The pool is enough when it is not completely full. The staff is very lovely and helpful. But despite the renovation of the rooms the hotel still seems very old especially in the restaurant area with the tables and chairs.

The breakfast is very average and sometimes you can not get what you exactly want.

Overall it is a good hotel if your expectation is not very high but it is probably not a 4 star hotel may be only with the suit rooms.

Great Hotel! by ickleminx_uk
10 / 10

Me and my boyfriend have just arrived back from the Harpy Hotel after having a fantastic week. The room was lovely and spacious with a huge bed, a lovely balcony overlooking Kalamar Bay and well equipped with air con and mosquito net. The pool was great, with only half of the sunloungers being used at any one time. We were only staying bed and breakfast but it was lovely with a selection of fruit, cereal and jams and an egg chef who would cook omlettes, fried eggs or crepes if you wanted.

What really made this hotel tho was the staff. Turkish people are the nicest and friendliest people I've met. Nothing was too much for them and would happily help out with anything they could. We had many evenings helping them learn some new English words and learn some Turkish ourselves. A special mention to Bahri, Doesh and the 3 Kenans for such a laugh. The manager was always around to make sure you were ok and didnt have any problems and was quite happy to clear away plates and bring you your food himself.

Kalkan itself is a small but lively town with so many restaurants its very hard to choose just 7 for a weeks evening meals but more of a place to relax as there arent many bars/clubs.

I would happily go back to Kalkan again and again and would definately choose to stay at the Harpy Hotel.

A Hotel holiday by default by DorkingHolidayaddict
8 / 10

Just returned from a holiday here by default-we had to depart from a gulet cruise in a hurry due to sea sickness! The staff were like most of the Turkish people have met-kind, charming and very good at their jobs. The half board food was good value for money-but too cheap and basic for my taste. We would have been happy to pay more for a better menu. The views were excellent, there was a lovely welcome sea breeze. The rooms were large and spacious. The pool was a lovely size but jolly chilly in early May. We swam everyday however! The hotel design was not great-but most people had jolly, good generous balconies, unlike prettier hotels in the area. The shuttle bus service is good as it was both ways! The new manager was very keen for us to enjoy our stay and was very professional.

Loved a stay at the Harpy by A TripAdvisor Member
10 / 10

We would just like to say we had a lovely time at the Harpy, the staff were wonderful and gave us a warm welcome and excellent service.

We made friends and the bar staff gave us all a wonderful send off in arranging a birthday cake and cocktails to celebrate as part of their service for our friend.

Thanks again to Bareeee and Dosh for keeping us entertained (sus Baree).

I can recommend the Harpy for the views and peaceful surroundings and the excellent service. Also the sun terraces were well kept and the restaurants excellent. Kalkan is a lovely resort.

Only Dalaman airport let us down.

Good as it sounded by StelG
10 / 10

Just back from a lovely relaxing week at the hotel Harpy in Kalkan. We were lucky enought to have a deluxe room (the standard ones are still great) which was lovely. Bed was as wide as it was long and very comfy air con worked efficiently and bathroom was luxurious. All the rooms have that wonderful view over Kalamar Bay. The pool and jacuzzi were fantastic and there were always plenty of sunbeds, being provided with fresh towels for the pool each day was great. There was plenty of variety at breakfast including fresh fruit, nice breads and eggs or pancakes cooked to order. Staff were all great very friendly and helpful even as it gets to the end of a long season of working long hours. Only slight criticism was the food in the evening which was OK but not wonderful.

The Kalkan town is about 20 minutes walk we never tried the return journey up that hill taking advantage of the free minibus "home". Kalamar beach club and Kalibe beach about 10 minutes away again down a steep hill were both lovely places to sunbathe and have lunch. Also spent a day at the Ibo beach near Kalkan harbour again great. Favourite restaurant Ibo terrace........book as it gets very busy.

Excellent Hotel by A TripAdvisor Member

My wife and I have just returned from a 2 week stay in the Harpy Hotel and would have no hesitation in staying there again. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by the very friendly staff, who always had time to talk and take an interest in your holiday.

We stayed in one of the suite rooms which was huge, plenty of room in the lounge/kitchenette area and the bedroom ( bed was 7 feet across!). Also we had a large balcony with fantastic views of Kalamar Bay.

The pool area was very good, with plenty of sunbeds which attract the sun all day and a 25 metre heated swimming pool, with a standard depth of 1.5m.

The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the town, although there is a courtesy bus which runs 5 times a day, even if you miss this, taxis usually only cost £2 each way.

We stayed on a B & B basis so I cannot comment on food options, the hotel did seem to go quite quickly in the evening because the bar was part of the restaurant, rather then in a separate area.

Breakfast was fine, with options for omelettes, pancakes or eggs if you desired. Just a little disappinted with only one type of bread available.

These are small complaints though, in summary, the Harpy is an excellent hotel with very good facilities ( there is also a beach club nearer the sea), friendly staff and a real relaxing feel to it.
