We stayed at Villa Hatira for 12 days, firstly as a couple, then joined by two friends for the last week. We all enjoyed it immensely and would definitely return. The villa is very well-equipped, double rooms and shower rooms are spacious and well-finished, masses of storage (and unusually masses of coat hangers!) and large open living/dining area inside. The outside spaces are great whether you want to lounge by the pool in the sun, dine or relax in the shade. The gardens are mature and well-maintained, and offer plenty of space for 4-6 people or more. The pool is a good size and the Jacuzzi a nice touch. Views of the tombs from the balconies are lovely, but so are the views of the gardens, municipal park with fountain and mountains beyond from pretty much anywhere. The twin room is quite small and doesn't have big windows, although this does make the room cooler.
The villa's gardens offer reasonable privacy, and the location couldn't be better. A quiet residential area, close to the facilities of the local park, under five minutes' walk to the closest supermarket and the 'top end' of the main street with its bars, restaurants and shops, or the riverside restaurants. It's less than ten minutes' walk by the river to get to the boats or buses to the beach, and all on the level.
Vivien and Rob did everything to make the booking process and our stay as smooth as possible. We had problems with the alarm on arrival, and an immediate response to help. Local reps from Oruc are helpful and responded well after the initial problem. We've been to Dalyan pretty much every year for 17 years, so didn't need to go on trips etc., and just enjoyed relaxing in and around the villa or the occasional trip to the beach or boat trip. Dalyan is a lovely town and although it has grown over the years, it's still a friendly place where repeat visitors are welcomed as old friends.

We've been to Dalyan many times and this is the best villa we've stayed in. The location is perfect; close enough to town for eating out and shopping, but tucked away in the peaceful Maras area.
The villa is immaculate and has everything you could wish for. The pool and garden are beautiful, top choice for a relaxing holiday.
