TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Kekova Kas
Kekova is nice and central in Kas, minutes from the bus station and an easy walk, 5 - 7 mins, into the centre where all the restaurants/bars are. Although basic and a little shabby in parts, the hotel has a charm and warmth especially from the manager who goes out of his way to look after guests. We enjoyed the Turkish breakfast - fresh, plentiful and constantly being replenished - guests are really looked after. The view from the restaurant/terrace is beautiful. Rooms are basic, hot water can be erratic but in the high heat during our week there we were often grateful for the cool showers. Convenient, charming and ideally located for a stay in Kas which we would definitely recommend.

The days were long and hot and we slept on the deck watching the sun set and then rise again. Even the moon, blood red and low in the night sky looked fantastic. Just magic. Hopefully our photos will tell a fuller story but we can say our batteries are recharged and we are looking forward to the last few days of this ...
... the military is searching every vehicle at various points between S'urfa and Adana. Little do I know that at the border in this area a large group of refugees has amassed and are trying to get in. I awaken to the news on my bus informing me with fighting intensifying between Kurdish soldiers and ISIS militants people have fled for their lives. Earlier the day I departed a desperate group gathered, Turkish soldiers watched on as suspected ISIS ...
... walk or catch a taxi to the ancient site, go back to the bus station, ride the bus back to Kas, and walk back to the hostel. This is, in effect, what I did, but not without some serendipitous detours along the way. First, as I was walking to the bus station, a car pulls up behind me on the road, the driver rolls down the window, and says "Are you going to the bus station? Get in the car!" Fortunately I recognized the driver as one of the owners of the hotel ...
... time to go back to my room to freshen up and take a stroll around the harbour, stopping for an ouzo at Radio Cafe before returning to the Olive Garden for dinner.
In such a small community friends would often pass by the restaurant and this was perhaps part of the reason for Kastellorizo’s charm as even in the space of my short stay I began to find myself bumping into people I’d met and stopping for a chat, whilst the mix of nationalities stopped ...
