Dear Baki, Filiz, Orçun, Barkın (Ricky & Baxi)
You are all such wonderful ambassadors for Turkey. On our first visit to your country we did not know what to expect but you have all made our stay here a fantastic experience. We came as strangers but we leave feeling as though we are part of the family.
We take with us so many memories lazy days by the pool, the simple pleasure of eating our meals "al fresco", the smell of food cooking in the clay oven or on the barbecue. Filiz' delicious meals, watching the moon rise over the mountain with a glass (or two) of raki or wine!
We have learned to play Turkish board games and joined in the folk singing. There have been many special days. The jeep safari to the mountain and Iztuzu (Caretta) beach and the wonderful trip to Saklıkent Gorge, where Matt kept falling over, and swimming in the deep blue waters of Ölüdeniz. Dan and Matt especially enjoyed the friendship of Orçun and Barkın. Most of all we have enjoyed your special hospitality. Of course we will miss all of these things but the memories will remain strong until the next time.
Love from the Drummonds
Adrian, Sheila, Dan, Matt

My second visit to the Sedir.
What can I say, words can not describe the welcome I have had a home from home.
See you all again in 2006
Love and best wishes
The Sedir Apartments
I have thought long and about what we can write regarding our holiday at the Sedir in Dalyan, but I find it bard top put into words the feelings we have. It has been three years since out last holiday so we needed a good one we choose the Sedir hotel this web site, and buy did we choose well. We have travelled in several areas of the world and I am still to find anywhere that will even come close to matching the Sedir. The rooms are cool even in mid July. Baki and Filiz made us feel like one of the family. Most evenings we cooked barbecue or superb tradiotional home cooking from the clay oven and on the rest of the week a short walk into Dalyan in the cool evenings. After a few drinks and a quick Raki with our new friends from " Paradise Gold", it was into the "The Sedir deep" with Riky the dog for our short trip through the town and back to our peaceful haven "The Sedir" each morning we woke to the sound of the cockerel at the bottom of the garden and after a breakfast of fresh yoghurt home made of course by Filiz. We sat by almost "Olympic pool" only looking but it was big and enjoyed each day as much as the last Baki and his family are genuine people the type I feel we could know for the rest of our lives. We still don't know what the words to the songs they sang in the evenings really mean but the sights sounds and feelings of the The Sedir will stay with us until the next time we visit. If you are in any doubt about the Sedir you can contact myself and Rachael. We are from the UK.

We can call you that because that is how you have made us feel ..!
All we can say thank heavens for the internet ..We were looking in Greece and
some how found ourselves in Turkey.. The best mistake we ever made ..
Spoke the Drummonds who confirmed what we saw on the website Baki , Filiz
family and staff made us feel comfortable and to quote others a part of their
The standard of cleanliness and helpfulness is second none.. Sedir is an Oasis
of peace and tranquility ..
Turkey is the most beautiful country and as first timers in the country what
a perfect introduction !
We have found the Turkish sense of humour absolutely brilliant and have so
enjoyed.. The conversation and laughter at dinner under the stars at Sedir..
We never return to the same place twice but with Sedir we make an exception ..
We will be dragged away to the airport screaming !!!
Until next year many thanks
