“Contrasts too Great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

This was the hotel with the greatest contrasts. The room although small was perfectly acceptable with a good view of the bay. The bathroom was wholly unacceptable. Lighting was inadequate, the shower curtain was so badly fitted that the floor became a flood. The mildew on the tiles was horrendous. Then came the catering side, dinner was good - breakfast was excellent. Oh for a happy medium.

Stayed February 2014, traveled as a couple

Stayed here for one night during our tour of Lycia with RSD Travel. The hotel has a lovely location. The rooms are a little tired in places but the hotel is very comfortable and welcoming. Breakfast and dinner were very good and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

If you stay in the winter you will find warm duvets in the wardrobe.

Breakfast selection a little limited but they do cook lovely fresh omelettes.

Enjoyed our short stay.

Perhaps one should be told this hotel is totally biased towards the German tourist market.........the
reception struggled with English but from the many German residents were very enthusiastic to chatter away to us in German though as we pointed out we were English and Russian! Food was very boring and always seemed directed towards the local Turks.
Tripadvisor?....never met or heard from any rep!
Our room! We were attracted to the description "Twin View"........Fact was the room had 1 balcony
and twin view was 2 windows .....the main balcony wind and the second a small side window hidden by a covering curtain.
Location and Fethiye super....quiet and fabulous mountain scenery with a fantastic bay.

Room Tip: Study the descriptions really closely.........Do not choose the south front as this side is situated...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

I stayed for 12 days in April 2013 in a room on the side of the hotel with a partial sea view and very small balcony. The room was a good size and nicely furnished although the bathroom was a little on the small side. Everything was in working order and my room was cleaned daily with new towels and sheets provided regularly. Unfortunately there were no English channels on the TV in my room; BBC would have been useful to have. Breakfast was good standard Turkish breakfast and dinner in the evening was buffet style with plenty of delicious mezes to choose from. Special thanks to Gokhan, one of the waiters, who spoke good English and made an effort every day to chat. The hotel is very conveniently situated right on the sea front at Calis and the dolmus buses can be caught at the back of the hotel into Fethiye for only 2 lira. A couple of very nice cafes/bars next to the hotel were also useful - try the chips at Merhaba cafe - delicious! Athough there were no other British in the hotel when I was there, there are plenty to chat to in the nearby cafes as Calis is home to several thousand British expats.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel have full sea views across Fethiye Bay and the islands but you may h...

Spent a few days at this property the breakfasts were very poor and the staff although cheerful and polite appeared confused and disorientated as nothing seemed to go as planned. A positive comment the hotel has a lovely position with beautiful views over Calis Beach. A negative comment is that the predatory waiters linger around the annex and pool area which is somewhat worrying for some of the female guests, apparently one of the guests was frightened by one of the waiters very late into the night/early morning and had to stay with another guest. I will not return to this property.

Room Tip: If you stay here enure you book a room in the main hotel with a sea view it is worth the extra money...

Was pleasantly surprised with this small, basic hotel. Stayed in the block at the rear of the hotel just over a small quiet road. Room was very clean; full marks to the cleaners who work tirelessly thoughout the day. This block has its own small pool and was alot quieter than the main pool area. Food was good although not varied and was buffet style. Breakfast was disappointing; more catered to the German guests. Waiters very attentive without being intrusive. Location is its best selling point; right on the beach so enjoyed dining while the sun set. Would recommend you sip pre dinner drinks in the Terrace Bar as the view is just breathtaking. Beach is slightly disappointing though - could do with a good clean up but that is not the fault of the hotel!

Fantastic promenade to stroll in the evening with plenty of bars and resturants to choose from.

All in all a good holiday - would definately go back.
