generation learnt about at school, took place in the lands around our home town
of Akbük, with well known people such as King Darius, Alexander the Great,
Hannibal and King Zerxes.

Saved for a whole year to take family on holiday to the lovely beach of Bardakci Bay on the Bodrum Peninsula in Turkey. Brilliant time was had by all especially our little 7 year old boy. Everything revolved around the beach and the pool with plenty going on day and night. Food was tasty and good plain food for kids. The ...

Life is good in Turkey! After lunch everyone on the boat had a quick siesta before arriving to our next swim stop. We saw alot of fish that were vibrant in color, bright blue, and yellow. When we arrived back to ...

A fantastic place
We are about to return to the Dolphin Hotel for the fifth time. Always had a fantastic time there and have never experienced any problems, in comparison to another hotel we have stayed in at Altinkum!
I loved this hotel!!!
This hotel was truly a home away from home, the staff were great, especially Gerrard, Sello (who we nick named bob hoskins) and Michael (love you all xxxx)
I recommend anyone with a sense of humour go to this hotel, we laughed through the whole holiday, thanks you guys !!! XXXXXXXX
Holiday of fun!!!
Our stay at the Dolphin Hotel was a lot of fun!! The staff were brilliant especially Gerrard - he needs some singing lessons though!! The Sunday dinners were very nice and the barbacue was excellent value for money. The Hotel was very clean and although basic everythng was of a high standard. We'll be booking again so see you all next year!!
Throw em in the pool
Hotel was very nice and clean considering how cheap it is to stay their. The staff are brilliant especially sello and gerrard, made loads of friends, chucked all the staff in the pool and really enjoyed the BBQ on saturday £10 for three course meal and all included as much as u like.

Loved it that much going back again next week !
A pleasant, basic hotel. Perfect to use as a base.
I have just read one of the other reviews from a guy who was at this hotel. I felt that it must have been a different hotel. When we arrived on the 18th May, 2004 we found the hotel in general very clean, OK so some of the fittings were past their best, but everything worked. The staff are brilliant, the breakfasts were typical of Turkey and they varied some of the foods on offer, Bread, honey, jam, cheese, tomatos, cucumbers etc, etc & Boiled eggs are wonderful for the digestion!!. One word of warning - DISCO, about 400 yards away, take your earplugs. All in all we were quite happy with the accomodation.
Greatly disapointed staff fantastic hotel absolute rubbish
After arriving home one week ago from the nightmare that is the dolphin hotel in altinkum turkey we feel that we need to inform wouldbe visitors that they will not receive any value whatsoever for their outlay of monies. We were not given the rooms that we booked 2 instead of 3 we experienced damaged beds, broken mirrors ill closing doors, ripped curtains, dirty and broken showers and toilets, wet bedding and very noisy rooms, all these problems are down to the owners and not the staff, we can truthfully say that the staff at the dolphin are exellent and will help in any way they can.
We love Turkey and are returning, we love Altinkum annd will be returning but as for the Dolphin no amount of money offered to us would make us return to the hotel that even the lovely people of Altinkum refuse to acknowledge.
Great for families
We stayed there last year and are returning with friends and family .
idealy situated would highly reccomend
