Feedback from our guests

Dear Ms Krickl!

On 27 June we returned from our trip to Cirali. My wife and I were completely delighted. At the Hotel Odile, they offered us a newly-built bungalow, which we moved into. ...

All in all, we were very pleased, and can only warmly recommend the Hotel Odile with its very friendly staff. Many thanks to you too, Ms Krickl, for the very good organisation (flight, transfer, etc.).

Very nice hotel for a quiet holiday in fantastic entertainments or other disruptive services on offer.

Andreas Boldt, July 2013

It was an unexpectedly wonderful holiday, which far surpassed our expectations!!! Many thanks for arranging it. Everything just went wonderfully, all the people on site were inexpressibly nice and relaxed and outstandingly friendly!!!

My daughter and I landed on Sunday night and spent beautiful days in Cerali and its vicinity.

The on-site car gave us some benefits - we were simply more flexible. Receipt and handover of the car at the airport were seamless - the process as a whole was very service-orientated.

The whole site was very well-tended, breakfast at the pool was excellent, and the furnishings, with loungers/chairs etc., created an appealing ambiance. We felt really good - we were able to make good use of a location so close to the beach, and of the two pools. The staff were very nice and obliging. We discovered the Lycian hiking route and other hiking routes through our tour guide and through conversations with other guests. On one of our "journeys of discovery", we arrived at Sibel`s Four Season Restaurant, which is highly recommended. Sibel is a German-speaking Turk with a Tyrolean accent and lives with her Austrian husband in the village of Beycik. She offers excellent food, which is grown/produced by her and by the local farmers.

It was my daughter's first visit to Turkey - and she was delighted!

All in all, a very relaxing holiday - thanks to your excellent organisation!

Top Villa! Quiet location. No shopping or leisure opportunities in the immediate vicinity (apart from the splendid pool). But with the car, none of that was a problem...

A. V., July 2013

We had an incredibly restful, enjoyable, relaxed, sunny and eventful holiday. Naturally, the house was huge for just the two of us - but that meant that we'd found exactly what we'd been looking for. Peace and privacy. We were able to experience the scenery, the people and our holiday slowly and at our own pace. And - to cook for ourselves! With all the fresh and delicious produce from the region, this was an absolute delight! Heavenly sunsets on one terrace, sunny early breakfast on the other one, and a really nice pool when we really didn't want to venture out any more. In the vicinity, there was an endless amount of things to discover - on water and on land (also on foot). As for the tour guide service - this was unfamiliar to us but very pleasant, because it was unobtrusive and helpful! We received a few great suggestions for excursions and were offered a few lovely tours. We can only recommend all this. We felt good in Lycia and want more! We would be happy to book again with Brigitte Krickl!

M. R., October 2013

We really liked the house and its vicinity, we will recommend it to friends and acquaintances.

Dr. G.S., March 2014

My family and I felt really at home. The house is very large, and with its various terraces and sweet upstairs balcony, it was a retreat for everyone. The furnishings are extraordinary, and you can see that someone with great ideas has realised them there. We were not disturbed by anyone and were completely left to our own devices. The kitchen was huge.

Another thing worth mentioning is the really nice, easy-going and uncomplicated reception at Leymona Beach. My children spent some hours there and felt really good there - the location is also really brilliant. You really need more time there.....

I. N., April 2014

Hello Ms Krickl,

Once again, we were very pleased.

Best regards,

We had a great time at the Villa Yasemin, and once again we would like to commend the on-site support very highly!!!!!

M. S., August 2013
Ferienhaus Villa Yasemin

We had a very relaxed holiday (more than bearable thanks to the air conditioning and service at Leymona Beach and the wonderful sea) and would once again like to thank the team at Hotel Kale, Pension Selim and Leymona Beach for their attentive support, hospitality and assistance with the planning of our excursions (which, among other things, included riding on the beautiful Patara beach). In particular, many thanks, Nalan, for your help / translation from Turkish into German ... Thanks to Hakan's ever-watchful eye and the boys at Leymona Beach, we never wanted for anything and felt almost totally at home. I think we will come again!!!!!

C. S., August 2013

Lovely guest house offering very good value for money, highly recommended. Good breakfast on the roof terrace with a heavenly view. Perfect service.

Norman Goßmann, September 2013
Pension Selim - adults only

Dear Ms Krickl,

You're probably still in Kas, which makes me most envious. How I wish I were still there now! We met briefly at reception at the Hotel Kale on my last day, and I was able to take the opportunity to tell you what a success my holidays had been.

So I'm certainly not going to fill the individual lines with grades.

As a solo traveller, I was superbly accommodated at the Pension Selim for 10 days in September. From the reception staff, who were always helpful in every way, and the staff at the clean and very pleasant guest house, who always made me feel welcome, to the staff at the restaurant, where I regularly enjoyed half-board dinner and felt like a member of the family as early as the third evening, I could not have wished for a better experience. I only ever encountered good service and overwhelming and very warm friendliness.

I would be happy to come again any time.

Particularly because Kas is a beautiful little place. As well as the usual tourist shops, you can find all the normal shopping facilities nearby. Anyone who wants to can enjoy the hustle and bustle near the port at any time. But you don't have to, because the guest house is at the quiet end of the place.

Kas is also in a wonderfully central location for companies in the surrounding area, and thanks to my rental car I was able to make extensive use of this advantage.

So that is my thoroughly satisfied report.

Thank you so much.

Birgit Heuckeroth, September 2013
Pension Selim - adults only

I totally enjoyed my holiday in a beautiful setting and with such friendly staff, and I thank all the staff sincerely.

Kas is a paradise, and if I ever feel myself sagging, I'll think of the wonderful breakfast on the roof terrace and the fun I had with Yusuf, Reza and some guests. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Ms Krickl, for making such a wonderful holiday possible for me.

Blue Cruise on the 'Mozaik' (1 week)

A unique experience with a wonderful crew. An experienced, confident captain and extraordinarily nice and helpful companions!

Rainer Heinrich, May 2013

In general, it was a very nice and relaxed holiday. Great!

S. D., July 2013
Blue Cruise

Dear Ms Krickl,

Many warm thanks for a beautiful holiday on the Lycian coast.


Then we had our private transfer to the port of Kas, and we began a terrific week with a lot of enjoyable bathing and nice stopovers in scenic, attractive bays.

Captain Ekrem (Eko) and his crew totally pampered us from the very first minute. And with a spontaneous on-board birthday party, his flair for organisation really got the atmosphere going.

We are already looking forward to the next voyage with him!!!

Best wishes

Tanja and Tommy Schlagenhauf, July/August 2013
Blue Cruise

The ship was ideal for our tour party (10 people).

The friendliness and helpfulness of the crew were extraordinary.

The food was excellent, even given the limited possibilities of the small kitchen.

The voyage route and the land trip (Myra, Demre and Arykanda, with expert German-speaking tour guides) were outstandingly well-chosen.

All in all, a perfect holiday.

Dear Ms Krickl, our tour party is extraordinarily pleased with your company's performance. Flight, transfer and ship were perfect. The crew on the ship did a great job. The following days in Dogan / Antalya were simply great. Many thanks - we will certainly be in touch with you again next year.

Best wishes.

Matthias Hoffmann, September 2013

That was a very nice, relaxing holiday - well worth seeing.

The captain, crew and German tour guides were GREAT!

The children really liked it, and the crew and the captain were exemplary in this respect.

This will not be our last time, Ms Krickl!!

Best (very relaxed!) wishes from Osnabrück and Berlin.

Terrific organisation (even with the airport transfer from Kas to Dalaman) - many thanks for this! We had an unforgettable holiday – I'd really like to come back to the boat ;-)

Claudia Hoffmann, July 2013

Dear Ms Krickl,

We would like to say a big thank you for the lovely holiday. The Blue Cruise was a dream! The crew, the boat, the food, the service and the support from the tour guides were great! We would be glad to come again!

Best regards

Dear Ms Krickl,

Yesterday we left the Kahramanlar 5 with heavy hearts. We all spent a wonderful week in which everything really did happen! Above all, we highly commend the great crew under Captain Ilyas' command, whose attention to our wellbeing was outstanding. We would be glad to come again next year.

Best wishes from the Rhineland

B. W., July 2013
Blue Cruise

It was a great and unique experience for us. We were accompanied by a great crew who were there for us and our children all day and all night.

The service and catering were super.

It was pure relaxation to bathe in the secluded bays as the sunshine beat down, to spend the night on deck under a breathtaking starry sky, and to be awoken by the rising sun. And then we were given coffee on deck before breakfast. Simply heavenly.

The last two rainy days couldn't be helped, but still we had time to get to know the Kas area better.

In any case, we will recommend the Blue Cruise to other people, and we may yet book other trips with you too.

Best wishes

Angelika Meinhardt, October 2013

We were thoroughly satisfied, even though the double room is really too small for rainy days. We found the apartments most satisfactory. The hotel has a particular charm that we really liked. Breakfast and dinner were excellent.

Hamm family, April 2014
Hotel Kale

It was SUCH a nice, relaxing holiday - I'd like to thank you to all again for this break.

The staff were so friendly and relaxed. I'd also like to thank Ms Nalan, who was always happy to lend an ear!

C.Kress, May 2014
Hotel Kale

You can only recommend the Kale Hotel. Very friendly service, the food was really good, and you got good value for money. The family atmosphere makes you feel really accepted and enables you to enjoy a relaxing holiday. I would especially like to mention Hakan, who looks after his guests considerately and is always in a good mood. I had a really nice holiday.

B.S., May 2014
Hotel Kale

I have already enjoyed holidays in Kas more than once, and I plan to do so again in future.

My spouse, who is now having his first ever holiday in Turkey, is thoroughly delighted by the "living room charm", as he has lovingly called it. In any event, he plans to come again.

For people who would like to enjoy a completely original kind of holiday, who would like to experience the people there in pleasantly close proximity, Kas is the ideal holiday destination. With nature which is still relatively unspoilt, the beautiful turquoise sea surrounded by picturesque and rugged green mountains and their famous cave tombs, picturesque bathing bays, and enough opportunities for many wonderful activities, such as hikes in the mountains and adventures (paragliding, trekking, mountain biking, cultural experiences, etc.), this place is really something special.

The many picturesque little alleys in the place, the many little hidden restaurants in the lanes, and the charm of the little port with its breathtaking view of Kas and the mountains enchanted us. The beautiful little shops with all their treasures and many traditional wares...

We will come again!

Thank you for all your help and support. We felt that your travel company treated us well and we will contact you again!

Best wishes,

Fr. Stromer, June 2014
Hotel Kale

We thoroughly enjoyed the excellent boat trip during the first week of our holidays and the services you provided were exactly as described.

The crew (captain, deck hand, cabin boy and cook) all took excellent care of us. Worthy of special mention, however, is the captain who made sure there was something for everyone in the group, including a programme of special entertainments for the kids. We were very comfortable on the boat and the cook really did us proud, serving us the most delicious local food. We can highly recommend this boat trip and will be booking another one (to Bodrum) in the near future.

Thank you also for all the other services which you provided (transfer etc.) – everything went completely smoothly.

Many thanks again

Blue Cruise

Dear Frau Krickl, I’m sorry that it has taken so long to get back to you. On behalf of my "travel group" I would like to say a really big thank-you for the wonderful week we spent on the Mozaik. It was absolutely perfect! From the moment we stepped on the boat we felt completely at home and Captain Eco and his crew were fantastic. They worked extremely hard around the clock to make sure that we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves. By the end of the week we were all agreed – this was the best holiday we had ever had! Thank you so much for organising everything so well! We will definitely be back.

Yours sincerely A. Brinks, August 2012

Dear Brigitte,

We have had a wonderful time at Domizil Lina Art. Elke and Mehmet are very friendly and make you feel at home very soon. They gave us all kind of information which was vey helpful for us being in Turkey for the first time. The room was good and comfortable, the breakfast extensive with lovely fresh bread, yoghurt, muesli, honey, marmelades, several types of cheese, orange juice, coffee, tea and for those who love a real Turkish breakfast cucumber, tomatoes and olives as well.

We had not booked for dinner, but Elke is a wonderful cook and after our first dinner in their lovely small garden we had no intention at all to go out for dinner in Güzelcamli. Every night Elke made a different three course dinner of high quality!

Highly recommanded for those who love a small pension with a friendly, personal atmosphere!

Kind regards,

Rob van de Wijngaard and Ina Veenstra, The Netherlands, October 2010

Dear Brigitte

Thank you for your email.

The holiday was wonderful. It could not have been better. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

The staff were all extremely nice, the accommodation was perfect as was the location and the weather.

What more can I say. I would love to go back again (and I never go back to the same place twice, but in this instance ......)


D. M., September 2010


We really enjoyed the 2 places in kas and Antalya. So well located! The pansion was really great and the access to the beach well appreciated!!! The hotel in antalya was so well decorated. Very good service as well. The only disappointing thing was the dinner. It is not at the same level of quality than the rest. The food was a bit what you can find in a canteen rather than what you can expect from such a delicate place.

But I will recommend these 2 places

Marie, Paris, August 2010

Dear Ms Krickl

We had a FABULOUS time in the Kale Otel in Kas and both enjoyed our time there enormously. We will be back as soon as we can be.

The only thing I would say is that we think you should forbid guests from smoking PIPES & CIGARS as the smell is overwhelming at the Leymona Beach which we loved and where we spent most of our time. Apart from that - everything was perfect and the staff were very helpful, courteous and friendly.

We congratulate you and your partners - an excellent place.

Sarah Matters, Cleveland, Ohio , August 2010
Hotel Kale


Our vacation and stay at Kale was great! Very calm, chilled atmosphere. We visited gülsen alot since our friends lived there and it was also great. The Kale staff didnt speak that much english but we managed to communicate with basic English (and some very basic German from our part =) The important part is that they where very friendly and made us feel welcome.

The A.C in the room was an absolute lifesaver in the extreme heat during the day. An actual fridge in the room instead of the cooling locker would have been great, but that wasnt a problem really.

My friend said that our time in Kas was the best vaccation hes ever been to. Its definetly somewhere in the top 5 for me aswell (amongst Japan, brazil, portugal and so fort =). The surrounding mountains and the kekowa boattrip was breathtaking!

Hello Brigitte

We had a lovely time in Turkey. The Hotel Odile was in a lovely location away from the crowds. The hotel staff were always very helpful and friendly, and the breakfast was great. It was very hot so we were glad of the pool and the sea on our doorstep.

There were a couple of things it would have been handy to know before we went which would have helped when we were packing! We were given pool/beach towels, which we could renew when we liked, and the hotel had their own sunbeds on the beach. Such a good idea! We did not need to take towels or beach mats, which take up space in suitcases. Also we had free tea and cake in the afternoon, which was lovely. Perhaps you could mention these facts in the information you supply to your customers.

Thankyou for your help in booking this holiday.

Pam W., July 2010

Hi Brigitte,

We had an absolutely brilliant time in Kas. It was one of the best holidays that we've ever had. We made lots of friends there and saw so many beautiful and interesting sights.

I am an historian with a deep interest in ancient history so it was paradise for me.

The hotel was great. The room was kept spotlessly clean and the food at Leymona was delicious. Because of the healthy diet there, I actually lost some weight which is no bad thing.

We will have no hesitation in recommending your services to our friends and we both look forward to travelling to Turkey again with you.

Best wishes,

M. and A.


Sorry this is a little delayed but just wanted to compliment you and all the people involved in the wonderful time we had at Villa Lavanta in Kalkan.

The house was absolutely lovely and the transfer and information services provided on our arrival were very helpful and if we had any queries they we dealt with both professionally and efficiently so please pass on our compliments to everyone in Turkey. Turkey and especially Kalkan, is a wonderful place to visit and the people were so friendly.

I will certainly recommend your services to anyone considering visiting Turkey. Thank you.


Hi Brigitte

Just to let you know we had a great holiday.

Kas was lovely, thanks for the recommendation. Loads to do and amazing weather.

Cirali and the Aida hotel were superb, friendly people and the place had a great vibe.

Many thanks for your help,

Gareth Prosser

Dear Brigitte

Thank you so much for our wonderful holiday!

The transfers were excellent and very punctual.

The hotel was absolutely gorgeous. Rooms, setting, breakfast, pool all excellent and the staff and owners couldn't have been more helpful.

Cirali itself was perfect for us, so quiet and beautiful with very reasonably priced restaurants..again all lovely.

Many thanks again for your excellent organisation.

Regards, Pip and Andy

Dear Brigitte

I promised to give you some feed back on our trip.

It was basically fantastic from beginning to end! Firstly, we were unbelievably lucky with the weather: apart from the 2 days in Kusadasi when it rained, we had absolutely brilliant weather throughout the trip, particularly in Istanbul and Kas. Secondly, you were right about Kas - it is definitely the nicest spot on the Southern Aegean coast and we really enjoyed our three nights at the Pension Kale. We had wonderful rooms overlooking the sea and the manager Ahmet Gelik was extremely pleasant and helpful in making arrangements for us

Our one night stay at the Pension Dervishan in Dalyan was perhaps the highlight of the trip: certainly the best meal and we also were introduced by Barbara to a delightful couple from Hamburg there. What a beautiful spot! I wish we could have stayed longer.

The Villa Konak in Kusadasi was very comfortable although the town itself is a bit of a dump. We liked Sirince a lot, however, and would probably stay there if we were to go back. I have to say that the drive to the airport at Izmir in a rain storm in the early hours of the morning (the driver was the manager of the hotel) was one of the most frightening experiences I've had in a lifetime of travel! Very nice man but not someone to get into a car with!

We loved Cappadocia, although the weather was surprisingly cool and, with the exception of the dinners at the Gamirasu which were very disappointing, thought the hotel was extremely comfortable with excellent service.

Thank you again so much for your recommendations. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to friends planning a trip to Turkey.

Very kind regards, Chris

...tidying up me emails, I found your message. Our holiday in Kas (9-16 April 2007) was fantastic - the accomodation top-notch, with very nice people, a great breakfast and lovely bech ...everything was perfect. We will definitely recommend you!

C. Bandulet

... just back from Kas, and I`d like to let you know that our week there was absolutely fantastic. We liked Hotel Kale very muchm it has a small but exclusive fell. The hotel staff were very attentive, and the activities in the "spring special" were interesting and varied. All in all, it ws a wonderul week.

This was definitely not my last visit to Kas.

Please keep my name on your distribution list so that I can stay in touch be notified of any specials.

B. Breede
Hotel Kale

I want to thank you for the beautiful holiday in Turkey. Everything was incredible. I read your information brochure in Hotel Kale and I can totally understand why you chose this lovely little place. I`ve never done so little reading while on holiday as when I was in Kas because I was fully occupied "photographing" everything with my eyes to take it all in. It`s obvious that everything is done with love. All the staff are nice and their work is exceptional. At the end of the two weeks my son didn`t want to go home and cried bitterly. Isn`t that the ultimate compliment? Until now we were loyal friends to Greece beause we`ve been going there for ten years and have a lot of friends ther (away from the touristy areas). But now, part of my heart belongs to Kas!!! Keep up the good work!!!

I. and M. Tschierse
Hotel Kale

We had noticed your advertisement many times over the years, the idea of seeing another side of Turkey. There was no comparison with usual alternatives, if you want to get away from the huge concrete tourist hotels and crowded beaches. This was our first visit to Turkey and we returned to our own "patch" on Saturday with wealth of beautiful experiences and memories.

Selim Pension was very nice, with a lovely view from the roof terrace to the Greek island. The little town of Kas is equally nice and enables you to get to know this country in a down-to-earth way. We were impressed with the range of trips offered, particularly the final stay in Olympos at the lovely Aida Hotel, surrounded by the beauty of nature.

Flights and transfers also went well, so we can imagine experiencing Turkey again with you - we wouldn`t do anything differently, but hopefully have the same again.
