Cesme is known as an up market resort and offers a good standard of accommodation generally. It is very European in its make up and infrastructure and you could be anywhere on the mediterranean really.
We went straight to the Cesme Ugulama Hotel but found it was closed for the winter renovations. They directed us to the nearby Kamera Hotel where we enquired about a double room for the night. The Reception area is well laid out and as soon as you walk in you get the impression that the staff here know how to run a hotel. It just looks very professional in every way. There is also ample parking outside and in the side road.
We paid 120 Turkish Lira ( £23.46 ) for what we thought was a double room with breakfast for two included in that price. What we got was a suite, complete with hallway, lounge and bedroom with a spacious bathroom. The quality of the build, the attention to detail of the fixtures and fittings and the actual buildings which formed part of the complex was of a very high quality.
The heating was more than adequate ( it was very cold outside when we stayed ) and the beds comfortable. The accommodation has a TV, kitchenette and tea and coffee services. This really was excellent value for money.
The staff here are very helpful and friendly. The Wifi works fine and the breakfast in the morning consisted of a good selection of Turkish breakfast cheeses, breads and salad, egg and jams etc with coffee, tea or fruit juices.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. If you are staying in Cesme and have your own transport then this is for you. Although this hotel is not right by the sea and a little out on a limb at first glance it more than makes up for it in every other way.#Cok Begendik. Cok guzel bir otel. Personel 5 yildiz, hotel 5 yildiz, hersey harika. Tavsiye ederiz. Cok tesekkur ederiz.
This restaurant is located in a shopping outlet in Urla, Cesme. It is fairly basic in terms of its decor and furniture but it offers a good choice of menu and traditional Turkish food. We stopped off for an evening meal and paid 65 Turkish Lira ( £12.70 ) for a meal for two which consisted of 2 x Kusbasi Kasarli Pide ( meat and cheese Turkish Pizza ) a good salad and Ayran ( buttermilk ).
I have to say that the Kusbasi Pide was one of the best I have had in Turkey for a long time. These guys really know how to cook. All in all a good experience with good service and friendly staff.
