Problems with security
We stayed at the Samira Resort and Apartment in June 2014. It was our first holiday away as a family, my daughter having just turned 1. The Good: The hotel is kept very clean, the pool is a good size. It was quite quiet in June, which suited us. Plenty of space around the pool, filling up in the afternoon but normally one or two spaces available. The staff do come round and offer you drinks etc but aren't pushy. Some of the restaurant staff were great with my little one, even spoon feeding her breakfast so that I could get on and eat mine! The balcony was of a good size and generally didn't have any trouble with noise (except Turkish Night but that's just one night) The view was lovely. The Not so Good: Some of the restaurant staff seemed lazy, unengaged and surly. To be fair it was only some of them and I'm sure you'd get this anywhere. We requested a travel cot. We got a cot that rocked, probably would have been great for younger kids but meant my daughter just stood in it and rocked it to keep herself awake. The mattress was too big for the cot and had been stuffed into the frame creating a big dip in the middle. Daughter woke up every night. To be fair we should have said something and didn't. The curtains were thin and the sunlight woke us up every morning. Again probably not normally a problem but bit of a pain with an infant. The fridge in the room only worked when the key was in the slot in the room - which meant if you went out for the day anything left in the fridge was not kept cool. We had to go up two flights of stairs to get to our room which was not ideal with a pram and all the kit a young child needs. However, the view made it worthwhile. The Bad: On the first day we paid to have a key to the safety deposit box in our room. It was about Â£50 for two weeks. We thought it a bit strange to have to pay for a key to something already in our room, and felt we were just being milked for easy money. The Ugly: At the end of our first day, after being out at the pool all day we got talking to another couple who told us to watch our valuables. Apparently there had been rumours of money being taken from the safety deposit boxes. We returned to our room straight away to check our money and discovered we were Â£200 short. We went straight down to reception to ask to speak to the Manager, only to find another couple in the lobby in the same position as ourselves. We waited for ages for the Manager, all the time with other people flitting in and out to tell us they'd had money stolen, and then refunded by the Manager or that they'd heard of other people having the same problem. Eventually the Manager strolled up and started talking to the couple that were there in the lobby before us. We could hear shouting and so walked over to see what was going on, and to add our support to the other couple, as it appeared that the Manager was suggesting they'd made up the theft. The Thomas Cook rep as absolutely useless and did nothing to reassure us that our money would be returned to us. She seemed far to friendly with the Manager and never followed up with us on whether our incident was resolved. I was also really concerned that someone unauthorised may have got into our apartment, as I had a young child with me. I spent that night with chairs up against the door so that we would hear anyone entering. Perhaps an over-reaction on my part, but by this point I was pretty upset and the hotel had done nothing to reassure me. Anyway the staff went off to check the CTV. 24hrs later we chased again for a response and were told the Manager would come up to speak to us. He didn't. We returned to reception to demand to see the Manager to find another family in tears. They wouldn't say exactly what had happened, because apparently the Manager had told them that if they spoke to other guests he would not give them back their stolen items. I got the impression it was more than just money...but as they wouldn't say what had happened this is pure conjecture. Anyway, eventually an apologetic Manager told us he'd reviewed the CCTV and blamed a cleaner and gave us our cash back. No refund on the cost of the safe mind. He asked us not to give the hotel a bad review. To be fair, everyone got their money back and there were no incidents of this nature again. Some people told us not to buy drinks during happy hour (BOGOF) unless you paid for them straight away as the staff would put 2 drinks on your tab instead of one. However I don't know whether this is true or not because after the incident with our stolen money we resolved to spend as little as possible at the Samira. I'm sure this was a one off incident and don't think the hotel have a general theft problem. However, it was managed very badly and I think soured our stay considerably. I would never stay in this hotel again, which is a shame as it has the potential to be a good albeit smallish resortMore
Samira Resort & Apartments
I stayed at the Samira Resort & Apartments with my wife for a week in October 2014. Upon arrival we were greeted by Emma who was extremely friendly and very charming, who showed us to our room. The room was on the first floor overlooking the Pool and had great views. The standard of the room was fine and everything was clean. The pool was rather cold but enjoyable after a hot day in the sun and was very clean with plenty of sunbeds around the pool. The bar and restaurant staff were very friendly and provided a good service. I was disappointed they cancelled the Turkish night the week we stayed, but was informed the was purely due to a lack of interest at that time of year as it was the penultimate week of the season. All in all my wife and I enjoyed our week in Kalkan, its our second visit to the area but first at the Samira. I would have rated the whole experience higher had I not been extremely disappointed with the last day of our stay. We departed on the Monday at just gone 12.00 mid-day having packed everything (or everything as I thought) into the Rental Car we booked, where we then ventured on to Fethiye where we spent the afternoon before heading for Dalaman Airport. It was when we arrived in Dalaman that things went a bit sour, I had to call the Samira Resort & Apartments where we stayed as I had realised I left a pair of Puma Trainers in the bedroom of our apartment ( my mistake I know). I spoke with receptionist who told me she would go and check the room we had stayed in as nobody was staying there after we left and could I call back in 10 minutes. I rang back ten minutes later, to be told quit bluntly that there were no Trainers in the bedroom. They had been left and as I stated earlier, that was my mistake for leaving them but when I emailed the Hotel on my return to England I got the shock of my life when the Manager called me to express his displeasure at the email I sent him questioning where my Trainers were. I felt like I was pretty much being accused of making up the story and that I had not left anything in the room, which both my wife and I know I had. It was a little more upsetting as the Trainers had been purchased by my young son for my 55th birthday and were not cheap. I can only say to have the Manager tell me I was not welcome in his hotel again, because I had the audacity to ask if my Trainers had been handed in (common practice here in the UK with property left in a hotel bedroom, left for up to 30 days to enable guests to claim back if needed). I would therefore say, lovely Hotel, great location very friendly staff but please ensure you keep all belongings locked up and remember to take everything home with you.More

Great base to explore the Kalkan region on a budget.
We had stayed at the Samira a few years ago so knew exactly what to expect. This time we were traveling with four of our kids, aged between 11 and 19 years, so we booked two apartments. I did request that the apartments would be close together and they honoured this. The hotel lobby is clean and bright, there was always someone at reception and we found the staff to be friendly and polite. We had no problem with the bar staff or our bar bills as some reviewers have mentioned. There were always plenty of sun loungers although they were packed quite tightly together and it would have been nice to have more umbrellas during the hottest part of the day. That said, we didn't spend much time by the pool or bar as we were out exploring most of the time. The apartments were basic and clean enough. Like I said, we knew what to expect. There wasn't enough crockery or facilities to self cater, but this isn't what we were there for. We borrowed a few glasses from the bar and bought mugs from the supermarket in town. There was a kettle and a very large, efficient fridge so we were able to have cups of tea and keep our milk and wine cold. That's all that mattered to so we were happy! We ate out all of the time apart from fruit and cereal for breakfast. The shower was tiny and hot water was temperamental, but the weather was so hot we it was quite refreshing to have cool showers. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms were air conditioned so we slept well. We brought fans for the living room as two of the kids were sleeping on (two separate) sleeper couches. This worked well and they didn't complain they were too hot to sleep, despite no air con in the living area. We had lunch at the hotel restaurant once (not bad) and did the Turkish Night on Thursday (awful). Over priced, inedible food and tacky entertainment. Since we last visited Samira, a bridge has been built across the main road which is a great help. Running for my life across a busy road with a whole bunch of kids in tow was not for the faint hearted! It is now a much more pleasant, easier walk into town and back. Kalkan itself remains gorgeous and still has that upmarket, more traditional feel about it. I am pleased to say it is not overrun with English bars advertising football and English breakfasts! We ate at numerous roof top restaurants and had excellent, traditional Turkish meals and good service at virtually all of them. Stunning views were a bonus. A taxi back to the hotel cost about 12TL but we only did this if we had shopping to carry as we enjoyed the walk. We went on several boat trips which were excellent. I thoroughly recommend Korsan Boat with Captain Ali who can be found at the harbour front in Kalkan. We had the boat to ourselves for the whole day and he took us to some great snorkelling spots, beach to have a mud bath and provided us with one of the best meals we had on our holiday - all for 600TL (I booked well in advance so got a good price). Staff at Samira reception also recommended and arranged a boat trip to see the ruins at Kekova. We were even provided with transport to get to Kas where the Kekova boats depart and were picked up and brought back to the hotel in the evening. We also did trips to Patara Beach, Tlol and Saklikent Gorge with Define Tours, again thoroughly recommended. Small, air conditioned mini bus, excellent knowledgable guide who spoke perfect English and included a traditional lunch in a village in the hills. I think this cost about 70TL per person. All in all, we had a fantastic family holiday. Samira was a perfect base for us to explore Kalkan and the surrounding region. Our younger boys loved the snorkelling, white water rafting down the gorge and boat trips, while our teenagers loved the activities too, they were also able to have some independence and explore Kalkan on their own as it felt safe to let them do so. We went not expecting luxurious accommodation so we were not disappointed. Excellent value for money. We would stay here again if we didn't have so many different parts of the world to explore.More

Samira (Deluxe) Resort, general info
This is Part1 of 2 reports for Samira (Deluxe) Resorts and relates to it's more general info, part 2 will be hotel review once checked out. Warning, please don't confuse Samira (Deluxe) Resort with Samira Exclusive, they are not the same. Samira Resort is near top of Kalkan, just other side of coastal dual carriageway, the Kalkan Exclusive is much closer to town centre, so inherently a bit noisier but more accessible without steep hill to climb upon return. Near Samara Resort are the following: Local daytime pancake house - Out of hotel, over dual carriageway bridge, down approach road and turn left at mosque, about 40 metres on right. About 7TL for pancakes, I tried each and all good, can recommend the slightly spicy (not hot) cheese & potato savoury pancake. Local shop - Out of hotel, over dual carriageway bridge, down approach road and turn left at mosque, about 150 metres on left. Local prices so 1Tl for large water, 2.5 TL for large bottle of fresh orange, daily bread supply, etc. not massive supermarket range but more than you first think, give them a try and help local businesss.Try the local "wagon Wheels", pack of 10 for about 1.5TL, though they use digestive biscuits between the chocolate. Very good local Aciktim kofta restaurant(Red & green sign) - Out of hotel, turn right and follow local road to roundabout, over and walk on pavement alongside dual carriageway and your there, about third of a kilometre in total, take a torch at night so you can clearly see and be seen. Mainly used by locals and Very good food at half town centre price. Local Market (each Thursday) -Out of hotel, over dual carriageway bridge, just down road and you will be in it, they pre-setup each Wed night and use the local roads and square. Local transport - hotel says it offers a shuttle, gross exaggeration, merely once or twice a day from hotel to Migros supermarket also owned by hotel owner, less than third of way down hill and no real benefit other than encouraging purchase of goods from own shop, there is a better stocked one just down road,believe it's called Yalti. Drinks are fairly standard hotel/restaurant price and seems to provides a reasonable selection of lunch meals at reasonable (circa 12 - 20TL) price, didn't try evening meals as there wasn't that much atmosphere. Other than above we generally went into town both for meals & basic provisions.More
Cheap and cheerful
Stayed for 2 weeks in the apartments with my girlfriend and 7 month old baby. Generally had a good stay at the Samira, but there were ups and downs, as follows - POSITIVES - Great pool and sea views from balcony provided you're not at the back of the building. Very large and clean pool and sunbathing area, never a problem getting a sunbed. Staff very helpful and friendly, particularly Fred in the bar, and the hotel manager who went out of his way to help some family get a room and also sorted our car hire and a very cheap price. NEGATIVES - Food in hotel restaurant was very basic and disappointing, however we found most food in Turkey disappointing. We did complain about a couple of meals and we were not charged for them. Cleanliness of room left something to be desired. When we arrived there were lots of black hairs in the bathroom sink plughole, and these were still there 2 weeks later. No shops within walking distance, quite a trek to get anywhere and all uphill. The parasols round the pool were a massive pain, everytime there was a gust of wind, they'd blow away (hit my head, nearly hit the baby). Need to invest in some heavier bases, and there wasn't enough to go round the sunbeds, but this was probably because they'd all blown away. All in all, for the money we paid, i can't complain, and i did enjoy the majority of my time at the Samira. If you're on a budget then I would recommend it.More
