Just got back from a week at the Mellis Beach and loved it!
We booked the hotel on the back of the great reviews on this website, then a couple of weeks before we left I came back on to see a couple of reviews complaining abot noise etc so was quite apprehensive!
When we arrived we were given a free drink at the bar as our room was not quite ready, then we were shown up to the room which was great, basic but very clean and tidy. We have stayed in Olu Deniz before at another 'basic' hotel but the Mellis Beach was much better. The Hotel is in a great location at the end of the main street but tucked away and the pool is a very peaceful place, considering how close you are to the action. One definate plus was the fact there was a shower cubicle in the bathroom, as many times when we have been away you end up with water all over the bathroom floor!
Regarding the noise at night, the first night we were there, the Tequila Bar was open until probably about 2am, and as you are so close of course you can hear the music, but to tell you the truth we were both so tired it didnt affect us. This was the latest we saw the Tequila Bar open, the other nights it was finishing up at about midnight. We were not affected at all by the karaoke bar, I didnt actually hear it at all over the course of the week.
The breakfast was great, dont expect a full english but there was olives, melon, cheeses, bread etc and tea/coffee. I am not looking for a fry up when Im on holiday and this was perfect for us, a Turkish breakfast in Turkey! You can get a fry up for an extra charge (I think) if you feel like it.
Olu Deniz is a great little town, more than enough going on but not too hectic. Hisoranou is only 15 lira or so in a cab and this is where you'll find your busier bars and clubs. Our favourite place to eat in Olu was the help Beach Bar on the beach, they make the best cocktails we could find! Another great spot was the Buzz Bar just along from the Help Beach Bar - a chilled out place for lunch or dinner. We did have to book for dinner though as its quite a popular bar.
We had a great holiday, the weather was fantastic and we were more than pleased with the Mellis Beach, considering the price we'd paid! Pauline and her staff are very helpful and will do anything they can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Remember, this is not a 4 star hotel, but a small family run place with just 12 rooms. Personally, I would rather stay somewhere like this.
