"Kalkan is wonderful and hotel couldn't be better!"
A group of six stayed at the Rhapsody hotel Kalkan early August and it was fantastic, Kalkan is wonderful and hotel couldn't be better, Antonia couldn't have done more to make our stay better, all the staff seemed to really care that we had a good time , it was wonderfully clean a great position with great views. We will be back next year.

"perfect holiday location"
Hi Ian, Just a quick email to thank you for all the work you put into make our holiday perfect. Kalkan remains a perfect holiday location and we were loved our room (Private Pool Room) and the changes/facelift at the Rhapsody. Weather was very hot, but great. Thanks again, we will be contacting you again when we want to return to that area. Great service. Lesley W

The Rhapsody hotel quite simply sets the benchmark for the rest of Kalkan. Its our first visit to both Kalkan and the Rhapsody, and I can quite honestly say that I loved both. Me and my wife always say that we wont go to the same place twice, but if I don't go back to Kalkan or the Rhapsody then I will both be disappointed and surprised. Kalkan has beautiful views everywhere you look, several beaches within easy reach, restaurants and bars of the highest quality, we loved it. The Rhapsody hotel is set in a great location with great views. The rooms are beautiful and done to a very high standard. But by far the best thing about the hotel are the staff, I always think that if the staff are happy then it must be a nice place to work. The manager Diane is lovely, very chatty and full of useful advice and information about Kalkan. Rami is the heartbeat of the hotel, always smiling and friendly, everytime I saw him he made me smile. My wife and I had a Turkish bath and scrub which was amazing, my wife then had a massage which she said was the best she had ever had! The lady that does the cakes ( afternoon tea ) and breakfast is so cheery, I loved her. But I have saved the best till last, Ozge the young lady on reception was my favourite, from the wonderful greeting, advice, information, friendly smile, I think she is an absolute credit to the hotel. In a nutshell if you are thinking of staying here, do, you will not be disappointed. Just to add Kalkan has several beach clubs which are well worth a visit, The Mahal was our favourite. We also did a boat trip " sunken city ", this was very good.
Even better than last year!
Our second stay at the lovely Rhapsody Hotel in Kalkan. The hotel is just a 10 minute stroll into Kalkan where the restaurants are utterly superb. The refurbishment has made what was already a very comfortable hotel into a very classy establishment. The new rooms are spacious and well designed. The new pool and bar area welcoming and well furnished. Food excellent, with a great breakfast selection and dinner on our first night was delicious; as for the cocktails...... The hotel was as ever immaculately clean. The thing that makes this hotel so special is the staff. Diane, friendly & helpful as ever heads a superb group, nothing is too much trouble. Rose, Sergan & Alper always smiling and helpful. Special thanks to Rami for his enthusiasm over everything, we did as he always says "enjoy our time"!

Fantastic hotel with stunning views....
This newly refurbished hotel is extremely smart with absolutely magnificent views. The rooms are very well equipped and the whole hotel is spotlessly clean. The pool area is stunning with lovely luxury sun loungers and a great pool bar. There is a very good buffet style breakfast and an excellent menu selection for lunch and dinner. All the staff were extremely pleasant and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Diane is an excellent hostess and personally looks after all the guests. Rami is also very entertaining and attentive to guests. The spa/massage is highly recommended.
The minute I set foot in this hotel I was gobsmacked on how beautiful this hotel is! The decor to the hotel is to a very very standard and is stunning ! Very very clean hotel and the staff made our stay very enjoyable. Beds were very comfortable and couldn't fault anything. An extra special mention for the breathtaking view STUNNING !
Once again Di and her staff made us feel welcome and special. They couldn't do enough for us. The hotel has had a recent refurbishment and upgrade which has changed the feel of the hotel from last year. It is now a more modern and 21st century hotel. We are looking forward to 2016 and a return.

This small hotel has recently been renovated which has made it contemporary and a wonderful spot to stay at with stunning views across the Kalkan bay. The staff are friendly and obliging, and nothing was too much trouble. In particular, the masseur in the spa gave me two of the best massages I've ever had, if you stay at Rhapsody, make sure you have a massage, they're world class!!
Magnificent newly renovated hotel
The staff & Manager Di were excellent & the room facilities were upgraded to the most comfortable standards. We ate dinner at the pool area on the last night & the cuisine was of a top class restaurant. We would most definitely return to the Rhapsody should we go back to Kalkan - a most charming Turkish seaside resort.

Great hotel with fabulous staff
We had a triple room above reception and a top floor room with a pool again on the same side of the hotel. Both were great in terms of location and in particular the views from the top floor room were stunning. The rooms were tastefully furnished and kept spotlessly clean by the housekeeping staff. The staff were all so helpful and couldn't do enough for us - from the complimentary tea and cakes every afternoon, arranging car hire and restaurant bookings to organising some lilo's for the pool! Rami who had joined the team just a few days before our arrival in particular made sure we had everything we needed. Both he, Diane and the other staff were visible throughout our holiday and always happy to have a chat. We are not used to hotel holidays, having camped for the last 18 years, but this was a winner all round. Kalkan is a vibrant town in a beautiful bay. As a family with three girls who like different things, there was something to please all of us. Would definitely recommend Kalkan and Rhapsody Hotel. Thanks again for making our holiday so memorable!

A haven of peace in the middle of August
My husband and I spent two weeks at the Rhapsody during the middle of August and were pleased to find this peaceful haven in the middle of the school holidays. The hotel has recently been refurbished to an extremely high standard and is beginning to build up its clientele again (although I think it will always be a quiet hotel). All areas are spotlessly clean and the staff cannot do enough to ensure that guests needs are met. The manager, Diane is efficient and very friendly and is very knowledgeable about the local area. Kalkan itself is just delightful. The only tiny downside was that the new rooftop restaurant at the hotel was not open. Maybe next year. This hotel is definitely on our list for a revisit.
Amazing time in Rhapsody Hotel!!!
We stayed at Rhapsody Hotel from the end of July to August and had an absolutely wonderful time! We could not wait to write a review for Rhapsody Hotel! When we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed by a friendly receptionist who booked us in with ease and offered us a lovely plate of fruit to be delivered to our room. Our bags were then taken to the room by a very helpful member of staff. We booked the room with a private pool. I think there are two rooms with private pools and we were taken to the slightly smaller room. Although this room is beautiful we asked if it was possible to be booked into the bigger pool room which is more private (the pool is not overlooked by any other rooms). Diane (the manager) and 'very helpful receptionist' (I'm sorry, I cannot remember her name) were more than accommodating and moved us to the larger pool room. We were told that we could have the larger room for the majority of our stay but would need to move back to the smaller pool room for the last two days. This was no problem at all as all of the staff had been more than helpful. Even though this was not a problem, Diane and 'very helpful receptionist' organised that myself and my boyfriend would receive a free massage after our turkish bath that we had booked through the hotel (the spa is joined to the hotel). This was such a lovely thing to do! We had a turkish bath and an hour long massage each by a 'fantastic masseur' (I'm sorry, I cannot remember name again) which was a first for us and a wonderful experience! We spent most days on our lovely terrace relaxing in our large pool, sunbathing on our really comfy sunbeds and looking at the amazing view! Our breakfast was included in the price (we only had it once but it was lovely). The hotel is a 10-15 minute walk to the harbour. Kalkan itself is absolutely beautiful and really has something for everyone. We are both 25 and found there was enough nightlife for our taste- lots of lovely restaurants, lots of atmospheric bars and a couple of clubs. As our flight was very late on our last day, Diane gave us a spare room for us to shower before we left the hotel which was so kind! All in all we had a wonderful experience in Kalkan and at Rhapsody Hotel. Thank you to Diane and all of her wonderful team! Kate and Tom x
I first visited the Rhapsody Hotel some years ago and loved the views, the fantastic pool and surrounding area, the friendly staff and relaxed but stylish ambience. I returned this year to find the hotel fully refurbished and was simply knocked out by the rooms (I saw several as well as my own as I was so impressed by the upgrade) and the overall re-fit. Many of the rooms are bigger than before, and for a special occasion I would certainly go for the presidential suite, with its own lounge and roof top jacuzzi with views to die for. The hotel has retained all its original charm, warmth and friendliness and gained a new glossier style and hipper design which only adds to the great experience of staying at Rhapsody Hotel.
First time staying at Rhapsody Kalkan
Stayed June 2015. Refurbished hotel to excellent standard. Our room had balcony with superb views of Kalkan bay. The room was cleaned every day to a very high standard. Room was spacious with great storage space (wardrobes etc). Hotel was in a great location and only a 10-15 minute stroll into town centre. We thought Diane was an excellent host, and around on a regular basis to talk to. Hotel has 24 hour reception and all transfers arranged by Hotel went to plan. Happy to strongly recommend this hotel as stayed in three others in Kalkan prior to this holiday, but could not fault the Rhapsody.
My wife and I stayed at the Rhapsody Hotel last year and had such a good time that we thought we would return this year, Wow the hotel has been completely refurbished unrecognisable from last year. However the the staff, Diane the manager and Ozge the receptionist are still there and the welcome you receive on your arrival is like coming home. They make your stay so restful and they cannot do enough to help you. They now have a new rooftop restaurant opening soon, which we look forward to trying next year.
A magical holiday!
My boyfriend and I stayed in the rhapsody hotel the last week in August. We had a perfect holiday and as regular kalkan goers we were extremely impressed with the rhapsody. Diane and the staff at the hotel were so friendly and always accommodating to the guests needs. Our room had a lovely view over the beautiful kalkan bay and was cleaned daily by the staff who were both kind and courteous. Diane and the team laid on a fresh and tasty breakfast each morning and when we ate at the hotel for lunch the food was delicious. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at rhapsody and will be coming back in the near future.
