Upon arriving it took me two minutes on top of the very steep driveway to muster my courage and drive down (it does get better with time ;-) . Lovely location, unbeatable directly on the tip of the peninsula. The hotel has its own access to the sea, no sandy beach but very clear water. I was given an update and ended up in of of the three gorgeous island rooms which have a lot of privacy and their own little pools. It was the most relaxing three days of my stay in Turkey.
Oh, and Kas is a lovely small town, too (although I did spent a disproportionate amount of the time reading and looking at the sea and swimming.....

Amazing location with breathtaking views. Hotel was a real hidden gem with lovely rooms and very attentive staff. Bar/restaurants prices much higher than in town which is the only bad thing about the hotel.
Location: If you are looking for a secluded location to chill out away from town then the peninsula is great. The surrounding views are beautiful. However the negatives are that you have to wait on the main road for a bus into Kas (running every hour when we were there, with the last bus at 11pm) - it really would be too far to walk. The road up from the hotel to the main road is also very steep.
Rooms: Would highly recommend paying a little extra for a sea view. The garden view rooms tend to be much darker and have smaller balconies (or none at all). We originally had a ground floor garden view room and we had to ask to upgrade - there was no privacy as the path ran right past our window and (tiny) seating area, and it was very small, dark and smelled damp. However the staff were very helpful finding us a new room which was lovely - large, light, with a large balcony looking over the sea. More expensive, but worth it.
Sunbathing: Great on the platforms, blustery at times
Facilities: Generally good, although there seemed to be a bit of a run-down air to some of the place (unfilled pools at times, some closed/unmanned bars, some unsafe/broken steps, exposed pipes and wires)
Staff: Most seemed to be quite young lads who didn't speak English well and were quite unprofessional (play-fighting with each other while on shift). But they tried hard.
Food and drink: Great buffet options for breakfast (though they charge for juice!) lunch and dinner. Good drinks choices too.

For a relax, recharge and unwind hotel this is one of the best! The location is truly magnificent with stunning views and scenery. The quaint town is perfect for a leisurely walk and for dinning out with ample choices of restaurants to suit all pallets.
The marina area next to the hotel offers some lovely walking distance facilities and again adds to the tranquillity of the area.
I would definitely re-visit this one!
Beautiful hotel. Fabulous view from balcony. Immaculately clean, recently refurbished. No tea/coffee facilities in room. Unable to pay with credit card which was annoying. The whole experience was ruined by the fact it was advertised by Expedia as including breakfast but we were conned, their written confirmation did not state breakfast and we were refused any breakfast. Disgusted. What was booked as a decent low price overnight stay with breakfast turned into an expensive experience. Shame on you Expedia!!!
Located halfway between the two main regional airports, Kas has a more laid-back atmosphere than other resort towns on the Turkish Riviera. Built on top of the ancient Greek city of Antiphellos, whose ruins are still visible in places, this old fishing village offers plenty of charm. The Greek island of Megisti (Kastellorizo) sits directly opposite the harbor and makes a great day trip by ferry.
