Servet speaks perfect English and runs a place which is a bit more eco-friendly than most, with birds and trees in the grounds. They have beer, and backpacker-types and budget travellers in particular would enjoy it here. The staff are friendly and the breakfast good. A very low price. We didn’t hear any mosque. I booked via the hotel website, but paid on arrival. AC is included in the price. The beds are more hard than soft. It is just 1 block from the strip. He can organise for you reliable transfers to Dalaman which are cheaper than the going rate.
Dalyan is a great place for a holiday with cliff tombs which you can admire across the river during breakfast here, a ruined city at Kaunos 1km walk from the boat crossing, boat tours and the beautiful unspoilt Iztuzu beach (beach bars were already open early April). If you attract mosquitos like me avoid this beach at sunset/dusk!
If you take a boat tour please use one which fits a turtle guard, tell the skipper that’s why you’re hiring him, and say that you DON’T want to stop at the boat which baits the turtles. As you can see in the turtle hospital, turtles are injured by boat propellers and feeding them encourages them to come near boats. The crabs which they use as bait are being overfished too. The boats which have a guard have a hallmark saying “Kaptan June Turtle friendly boat” and a date which shouldn’t be more than a year out of date. Details are on newsletter 14 of dalyanturtles.com and the boat numbers which comply are currently 32, 44, 53, 73, 123, 126, 127, 174, 190, 232.
