The hotel was much better than expected! The pictures showed a gorgeous facility, but did not capture the true beauty of location and incredible staff! I was treated like royalty as soon as I arrived. The staff made sure I had everything I needed and more. They made all of the experiences very organized and fun. I was there two days, and I will be sure to visit during a warmer time (Spring or early Fall).
I went on their recommended balloon ride tour! Was not sure since cold weather, but I am so glad I did! Everything was memorable from this short trip and I can't wait to go back!
My fiancee and I wanted to spend New Years Eve in Capadoccia and this hotel did not disappoint. The room was very comfortable and authentic. The staff was friendly and the breakfast each morning was fresh and tasty. I would recommend this location to all. The only thing that would have made the visit perfect was to have a working fireplace in the room as the website stated. The management tried to make the fireplace in the room work, but it only filled the room with smoke. Apparently, there was some parts that were needed, but had not arrived. Other than this our experience at Dere Suites and in Capadoccia was very memorable. I've traveled to 33 countries and stayed in hundreds of different hotels...I would stay here again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3-night stay at Hotel Cave Konak and wished we were able to stay longer. Our cave room was beautiful, spacious and quite unique. The entire hotel has a beautiful old-world look and feel to it with distinctive architectural accents everywhere. If you're thinking of opting for the Breakfast package - do it! After eating your Turkish breakfast with the homemade jams and Pekmek on the rooftop terrace, you won't want to eat breakfast anywhere else. The breakfast is delicious and views from the terrace are amazing. The terrace is also a great place to end the evening with a bottle of wine enjoying the views and the cool air. Even more amazing than the hotel itslef, is the staff. Colleen and Adnan are exemplary hosts and their knowledge of the surrounding area is priceless. Every day after breakfast Colleen sat down with us to help plan our day of sightseeing. While I had done a lot of research on where to go and what to see, her "inside" knowledge and tips on places to go (some I hadn't even heard of) really made a difference. Colleen and Adnan are both very proud of the work they have put into the hotel, and rightly so. Adnan gave us a tour of some of the other rooms as well as parts of the hotel and caves still undergoing renovation. It was quite fascinating, and really gave us an appreciation of all the hard work that was put into transforming these old buildings and caves into something quite special. This was our favorite stay in all of Turkey.
Family owned and take great pride in insuring your comfort. This was our second visit, the first was two years ago for our honeymoon. I am American and my wife is Turkish, plus we brought our niece and her husband. They heard us say our niece and her husband were newly weds and surprised them by upgrading their room free of charge. Also, while we were gone they put rose pedal in their room with romantic towel swans on the bed. The next day they surprised them with a fruit basket and bottle of wine, very nice of them to put the extra effort into making it special for them. The breakfast was included with our stay and the chef was fantastic and served a European breakfast along with eggs cooked the way you like. We asked for an extra comforter for our room and it was waiting when we got in that night. Manager/owner speaks fluent English and is as nice as they come and will help you out in any way he can. This is why we returned two years later and was treated with open arms and politeness. All rooms are very nice, just depends on how much you want to spend and what size of room you want. Even the basic room is really nice with large beds.
