I hadn't had a real holiday in four years, so I finally decided to treat myself to a week away in Turkey. Chose the Fethiye area for now real reason at all, and then stumbled across this little gem. Exactly what I needed. Good rooms, wonderful showers, peace and quiet. Friendly staff, and an execellent chef.

This is a truly magnificent restaurant - we have been many times and this time was for my husbands birthday on 12th June with our two sons and four friends. I had bored them all telling him how wonderful this place is and just had to show them. Eric Frank and Phil are great and they feel like friends and... More

Although we didn't stay here we had a fabulous meal on the recommendation of friends. We were picked up from our apartment by one of the owners and driven to this little piece of heaven .. The greeting from being picked up to entering the hotel was warm and welcoming. The view from the terrace was stunning and the food... More

With so many restaurants in the area serving basically the same food it is s pleasure to go to Il Rifugio. You'll not get a warmer welcome any where than you will from Eric, Frank, and Phillip. The food is a cut above and the sunset beautiful. A little more expensive than many but worth the price.

Set up in the mountains this is a welcome surprise! The views are beautiful. The setting is gorgeous. The food is impeccable. The A La Carte menu choice is not huge but it changes every week, and there are always a couple of extras in addition to the menu. The restaurant will pick up and drop off too. There is... More

Alison and I keep coming back to this lovely, boutique hotel nestling under Babadag mountain near Oludeniz. The welcome and hospitality is second to none from Eric, Philip and Frank and in just 3 days we come away feeling wonderfully relaxed, thoroughly spoilt and having enjoyed some fantastic meals in the restaurant - Frank even did us some poached eggs...

The best way of describing this hotel and location is at first glance it is a pleasant surprise from the other types of that we have experienced, however that quickly changes from pleasant to outstanding. We were met at the airport by Phillip and avoided all the usual problems with transport arrangements, on arrival we walked into the villa style... More
