Only 7 days to go !!!!!
« on: August 01, 2013, 05:50:53 PM »
Only 7 days to go untill we come to Kalkan for the first time  ;D ;D
we are staying at the kalkan dream hotel ..... is there anyone else there the same time as us?
I have a son with Autism and learning difficulties so it would be nice if there would be other teenagers there he could say hi to my son is 17 ..... he is so excited  ;D ;D
any tips for things we should do or places we should eat would be very much appreciated
Thanks Tessa

Tessa, You will have a fantastic time and I'm sure your son will have a great time the kalkan people are amazing with kids, we had a young man in our hotel in June with learning difficulties and all the staff were amazing with him (and also the guests). i am sure Ergun and his family will do everything they can to make your stay the best they are a lovely family and the Dream is a gorgeous hotel.Have a marvellous time and please let us know what you think of paradise.

I think you might have booked this on my recommendation, and having just returned from 3 weeks at the Dream myself, I am more confident than ever that you have made a great choice. Bless your son - he will love the Dream Pool (jacuzzi, water toys) and you will all be very warmly welcomed by the family who run it. They will look after you well. The owner, Ergun, has a little son of his own who is always running around the place - and he is besotted with him. The bar staff are also young and friendly, and there is always someone up for a game of table tennis by the pool. The pool terrace is safe and clean with the comfiest furniture.

Thinking of your circumstances - my favourite roof terrace restaurants for a special meal are Gourmet and Kalamaki. Doy Doy also very lively, good food and great views. At the less expensive end you will also love Fener Cafe at the Harbour (fab pasta and ice cream, with lovely views of the beach from the Ottoman seats) and Cafe Leon near the mosque where there are always English mags, great music and lots of lovely animals lying round. Merkez Cafe is great for snacks and people-watching, and you should also try the Hunkar kebab place on the main road on the left just up from the small roundabout. Although a street cafe, it is always packed, and they do dramatic cooking and presentation of the best kebabs in Kalkan. There is also the new (really friendly) Han inn/restaurant just in front of the Dream on the main roundabout - it will be your local. Elevated position, breath taking views, shady terrace, cooling sea breezes, where they will cook your son anything he wants. He will be mesmerised by the crazy traffic action on the roundabout below. (Families of 4 on a scooter carrying an inflatable crocodile.)

Kalkan at night is like a film set, and I'm sure your son will be enthralled and stimulated by all that he sees - the lights, the sights, the smells and the sounds of glorious Kalkan. Here's wishing you all a wonderful holiday.

I'm confident you and your son will have a wonderful time. The local people are the friendliest ever and will certainly give you and your son a warm welcome you will never forget. Trouble is once you've been there you'll just have to go back. Really hope you both have a lovely time full of happy memories, I'm certain you will. Enjoy yourselves  :laugh:

Thanks so much for all your reply s,
they have been really helpful and has put my mind at rest lol
Christina i did book the dream hotel after you had mentioned it to me it looks wonderful and it suits my son and thats all that matters lol
Thanks for the restaurant recommendation i will definitely write a list and try them all as we are there for 2 weeks.
Are there any boat trips that we should definitely do or any other day trips in the area that are a must?
we have done a Jeep safari and mud baths and the gorge trip previously so do not need to do those
I will also show Elliott the you tube video and see what he thinks
Many Thanks
Tessa

Oh yes Lizilu where are you staying? do you have any children? i bet you cant wait either lol

Hi Tessa, we are staying in a villa high up in kiziltas, but we may see you knocking around. We have 3 daughters, 2 at 16 and 1 at 12. There is a meet up at midtown on the evening of the 13th, time yet to be confirmed but probably after everyone's eaten as the music doesn't start until late. You and your family are more than welcome to come along.  :)

Hi Tessa. Midtown is a cafe and bistro and is on Facebook. Martyn has put a post on the meet up thread re this. General consensus of opinion seems to be to meet up at 9.30ish as the music starts at 21.45.
Hope to see you there.  :)
