“Was a great hotel, great location - but...........”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Third time visit for us this year. Had a suite again on 1st floor.
Still a good hotel in a great location BUT the service is slipping! They were just not as "on the ball" as in previous years. Breakfast staff seemed poorly managed. The manager, who speaks perfect english, just ignored the guests totally. Food was good athough not as good as in previous years and portion sizes were down. Several cracks in external walls made the building look tired. Pool area was as good as ever and the location is still fabulous.
The health Spa is grossly overpriced.Sadly I think we will look elsewhere next year!

Room Tip: Try to avoid ground floor rooms as anyone can look in from the walkway. 216 and 316 are the best sui...

I have just returned from spending a week at the Ece Saray and there is very little to fault here. If you are not into large, all-inclusive hotels, and prefer something a bit more boutique then this hotel is for you.

The views are stunnng, it was a pleasure to wake up every morning and look out onto the harbour with all the yachts bobbing with wonderful mountains as the backdrop. Everything is so green and lush here. Breafast on the terrace was fabulous and again over looked the harbour and mountains. The staff were excellent, polite and efficient and Fatma was just great, nothing was too much trouble.

Having gone half board, which I would not normally do, I was a bit concerned about what the standard of the food would be like. I have to say it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and hot, which is unusual for the Turks! Menu was limited but I never had a problem choosing something that never failed to please.

The locaton was fabulous - far enough out of Fethiye town to have peace and quiet but near enough to stroll in and hit the bars. A 30 minute stroll took you up to the tombs in Fethiye which I thought was worth a visit and a 20 minute tax boat ride across the bay put you in Calis which again is worth an afternoon or day visit if you fancy a beach setting.

The hotel pool was lovely and clean and a great size to have a swim in. The sunbeds are the most comfortable I have ever laid on and the pontoon's with large comfy bean bags for bathing on were just made for relaxing in the sun!

I notice someone mentoned air conditioning did not work - ours was great no problem at all, and icey cold. My only comment on a negative note would be the room is quite small but as I spent very little time in it, I could forgive this as everything else was wonderful.

The spa was good too and free use of gym, sauna, hamman if you are a guest. I treated myself to a Hamman and massage which was really good too.

All in all I had a fab holiday and would definitely go back to both this hotel and Fethiye again. It is a little piece of heaven only 4 hours away from the UK.

Room Tip: When you book make sure you request a room with a seaview that is on the 2nd or 3rd floor. There ar...

Just returned on 24th September from the Ece Saray . A rare find ! Excellent hotel set right on Fethiye Marina . Our room was on the 2nd Floor and lokked straight on to some fantastic yachts in the marina. Our room was good , but could do with some tidying up in the shower area.Perhaps an updated TV would also be good , but we spent little time in the room , so does the TV matter , ? maybe not . The staff were brilliant both in the Hotel , around the Bar and around the pool area , nothing was too much trouble . Breakfast was good and again the staff were very attentaive and the quality of the food was excellent . The pool area is extremely clean , with more loungers than were needed , so no need to 'book' a lounger pre- breakfast (although some still did !). We stayed B+B , rather than half board , so we can't really comment on evening meal , as we only had 2 , during our stay . Overall really good , would we return ? yes we would .

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the Marina , but the higher you get the better the view

We arrived in Fethiye without reservations and were able to obtain a suite at 40% discount for 3 nights. The staff and grounds are very nice. Be aware that this is set on a marina, not the beach (which required a drive). The a/c didn't work well, but we had this problem in several hotels in Turkey, so it wasn't much of a surprise. The rate included half-pension, which though we traditionally don't like, we were happy to take advantage of, as it was above average. My children (6 & 8yrs) loved the pool and from the hotel we were able to walk to town in the evenings. I highly recommend going to the beach at Oludeniz for the day.

We stayed at this hotel on 20-27 August. It is just lovely the view from our bedroom window every day was just fantastic. The service was great. The restaurant food was OK. The menu is limited, but it is a small hotel and the views and scenery more than made up for that. Most of our meals were very good.

Breakfast again was served on the roof terrace with the most fantastic views across the bay. Fethiye is a short walk. All in all this is a fab hotel, in a great location with quite simply priceless views.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the marina - you will be so disappointed if you don't....

This hotel has everything! Perfect setting overlooking Marina, fantastic choice of breakfast dishes with outstanding view from terrace over the bay. Massive pool with delicious lunchtime menu. Fantastic setting for dinner with excellent and varied menu. All this and only a short flat walk into town. Room was spacious and well-appointed. All staff were friendly and attentive. Would definitely come again!
