Hello Everyone,

I am a hotel owner in Turkish Mediterranean Coast Kas, a dreamlike seaside village which Lycians rules for centuries...I realized that 100% of voters here said -They felt unconfortable at their hotel while they were in Turkey. I dont know how much this would change but my hotel www.saylamsuites.com is a Gay Friendly hotel and this might be a start to heal Turkeys picture.

Hope to welcome you one day.
Kind Regards,
Duygu Saylam
