Without any doubt, Antonia the manager, is the person who ensures that the Rhapsody works in what is a very competitive industry, for she ensures that each guest has an experience to remember. It is rare to find a hotel so thoroughly clean and wholesome, the level of cleanliness was simply exemplary, and from the bottom to the top, all concerned deserve commendation on that. The hotel is situated overlooking the bay, and at the time of our stay (pre school holidays) was extremely quiet and peaceful. A generously sized bed and spacious bathroom with excellent shower, and all facilities working to top speed where all so very welcome. Kalkan itself was a wonderful experience with its lovely beach clubs, and terrace dining in the town. The locals, without exception where so kind, helpful and generous of spirit.
With a more 'upmarket' breakfast area, the Rhapsody would surely deserve four star status. Antonia and her husband who runs the hotel spa, truly excel in offering each guest their personal attention, and requests are followed through immediately. We so hope that the management are aware of the immense input Antonia offers and that without her, the Rhapsody would simply not be the place it is. (Having left what would be an expensive item to replace, in my room, Antonia is organising to have the item returned to me - you cannot ask for better than that). With airport transfers and a boat trip all organised for us, there was little to do, but enjoy our stay at the Rhapsody. Thank you Antonia, thank you cleaners.

Room Tip: Larger rooms worth having.

We've been coming to Kalkan for many years with our children who are now 17 and 21. For this reason we usually, stay in villas or apartments, however we decided that we would book into a hotel and leave the kids at home, to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday in May. We booked the Rhapsody as we knew the area and it was reasonably priced, also Antonia was extremely helpful via email and by telephone answering our queries quickly and knowledgeably.

We are so glad we booked. Antonia and her team were fantastic and like others have said, we felt like we came away as friends. They definitely have a personal touch and you feel valued as a guest. Nothing was too much trouble and on my husband's birthday, they decorated our room beautifully and tastefully with flowers and petals.
Our room was amazing with a wrap around balcony giving a fantastic view of the bay and a floor to ceiling window next to the bed with the same view. It was breathtaking.

The food was excellent, both breakfast and lunchtime menu. At breakfast there was the typical Turkish breakfast style cold meats and cheeses, salads, etc, cereal, honey yoghurt and preserves. There was also a warm choice of a few dishes which varied on a day to day basis, my favourite was the menemen - scrambled eggs and tomatoes with spicy peppers and chilli.

We spent many an hour around the pool and we only saw beds reserved occasionally which was good and Nihan and staff at the pool bar were fantastic.

We are coming back to Kalkan next week with our girls and will definitely call in to say hello and hope we have the pleasure of staying with you again sometime in the future. Thank you for a truly memorable holiday.

This hotel is just perfect. It is in the perfect position just the right distance from town and views are amazing. It is also kept spotless, rooms are great, just cant fault it. The manager Antonia was so helpful from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble. She also arranged a gullet day trip for us which was fantastic. Her husband Ilhan runs the spa underneath the hotel and is also super friendly and helpful. Great massage too!

We will definitely be back, missing the place already!

We stayed at the Rhapsody for the second time at the end of May beginning ofJune 2018. We love this place and we love the staff, who from the manager to the cleaners all do their very best to make sure you have the best of times.
Antonia, the manager of the hotel, has always gone above and beyond expectations, and, both her and her husband Ilan feel like personal friends. The Spa is great and we can both definitely recommend a Turkish bath - thanks Ilan.
The location of the hotel is a very convenient short walk into town and the views from the pool area ( and most of the rooms) are fantastic.
In short this is the very best, we wouldn't consider another hotel in Kalkan.

Jane what a glowing report you have given us! We are very lucky in our Boutique hotel that we have the time to spend with our guests who also feel like friends and family to us. So many of you come back year after year and it is fantastic to know that after you second visit the third is definitely on the way. We all look forward to welcoming you again!

Our 1st visit to Kalkan & absolutely love our Hotel.
The Rhapsody has everything you need extremely helpful & attentive staff, cleanliness of rooms & superb decor.
No fighting for a sunbed on a morning & the pool area is relaxed & quiet.
It’s only a 10 minute walk into the heart of Kalkan but far enough away to be so quiet after dark
Antonia on reception is a delight & can’t do enough for you, the lads behind the bar are great & Illan in the Spa is professional & has a wealth of knowledge .
Top class hotel with Top class staff
