Gabby and Dom are a dynamic Duo who we can't speak highly enough of; personable, extremely hard working and all-round wonderful human beings!
Prior to our stay at Dionysos Village Hotel they took care of all our requests very efficiently and in a friendly manner. Once we'd arrived, every detail was pre-empted before we'd even had the chance to ask. Their intuition for what may be desired as well as their attention to detail was second to none.
The purpose of our visit was to celebrate my mum and her fiance's wedding. They'd lost their original venue at the last minute but Gabby and Dom were able to organise a wedding that looked and felt as if they'd had at least a year to plan; every detail was absolutely perfect and the entire day ran seamlessly. It was obvious to everyone in attendance that they both really care about their job and their clients. We are already planning our return to the resort and that is down to them and the huge effect they had on all of our party. We know we'll be in great hands!

Gabby and Dom – where do we start? You have given us the most perfect wedding EVER! Everything was exactly as we had imagined it could be or better. We cannot thank you enough. So much attention to detail, starting from the video Gabby sent at the very beginning of how things could be (as we’d never been to the hotel), down to every single minute on the day.
The scenery is absolutely breathtaking and the hotel is rustic, charming and the perfect setting for weddings. We believe we had the most wonderful and perfect day and we enjoyed every minute. It was the best day of our lives – but more than that several guests have said to us since that it was the best day of their lives also, and many said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. People are still talking about it months later. The atmosphere on the day was wonderful – so full of love and care. People were emotional at the beauty of the setting, the friendliness of all the staff, the flowers, everything.
The canapes were amazing, the meal was wonderful and you coped with vegans and a gluten free/dairy free child like that was an everyday occurrence. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone had delicious food. We had opted for a drinks package and that was extremely good quality and free flowing. perfect.
I (the bride) had sent photos in advance of a bouquet I liked, a flower crown I wanted to wear (made from gypsophila) and some buttonholes to match the bouquet. I also asked for fresh flowers on the wedding cake. What appeared on the day, all freshly made, was more beautiful than any of the photos or anything I had imagined. The flowers at the wedding itself including the arch were spectacular (I can’t even begin to describe them) and the flowers on the tables at dinner were wonderful too. Everything matched and went beautifully together. Beautiful.
On the hotel website it says “When you arrive at Dionysos Village Hotel, Turkey, you become a part of the family.” Well, this has never felt so true. The owner Ahmet is so welcoming and such a lovely, caring gentleman, you feel like you have known him for years. His face just shines with his enthusiasm and knowledge of all the nature that surrounds you. We cannot wait to go back and see our Dionysos Family again. Until then, lot's of love".
