“Pleasant hotel, very good value”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

This family-run hotel is located close to Cadiz Beach and is very popular with British tourists. Everyone was very friendly including owners/staff and other guests. Our room was larger than many we had in Turkey with lots of storage space. The bathroom was large however shower was the type that sprays the whole bathroom. Everything was very clean including the pool with lots of sun chairs. Breakfast was fairly basic, not as good as most of the other breakfasts we enjoyed during our 3 weeks in Turkey. Most of the restaurants along the pleasant promenade at Cadiz Beach seemed to cater to British tours with every second one offering "English breakfast" or Fish and Chips. We spent most of our time in downtown Fethiye which was easily reached by dolmus very close to the hotel. Fethiye itself is a lovely place with a beautiful long boardwalk with shaded benches to sit and admire the view. it was easy to find an all day boat trip that took us out to several islands which we enjoyed a lot. We stayed 3 nights at the Tugay - it was very reasonably priced. We also ate lunch at the hotel one day - it was a fixed menu, delicious and inexpensive.

Small family run hotel on outskirts of Calis. Good maid service. Rooms are typically Turkish basic, we asked to be moved to a slightly larger room which the owner did with no problems. Breakfast is basic (as expected) The pool area is pleasant and all guests were British when we were there. A good 10 minute walk to the centre but along the prom this is pleasant. There are bars etc nearby but they are quiet. The The nearby caretta beach bar/ restaurant is good for those wishing to Sun worship as you can have a Sun bed free if you buy drinks or food there, which are standard priced.

Nothing much has changed since our first visit last June. This time we were in a ground floor room at the front of the hotel, which did feel a bit on the small-ish side for two people and the shower room really did need a tray/shelf where you could put shower gel/shampoo etc , but both of these points are just minor niggles really, and for cleanliness, value for money and friendliness of the other guests The Tugay is still an excellent option in Calis.

Oh i don't like leaving negative feedback, however sometimes it's necessary. I go to Turkey twice a year, normally two weeks in May/June then again for two weeks in Sept. I usually stay at the Seketur hotel, however when i booked my recent trip via Travel Republic, i couldn't book the Seketur Hotel, therefore i relied on Trip Advisor reviews. As such the reviews for the Tugay hotel were very positive, i had no reservations in booking this hotel. Prior to arriving at the hotel, i had emailed the hotel for some advice on the rooms/WiFi etc......no reply was forthcoming. On arrival at the hotel i was greeted by the owner, who was very pleasant as were the other staff working there. My main issue with this holiday was the building work taking place on the upper part of the hotel. The owner is extending the hotel to include additional rooms on the upper floor.......these will be lovely once they are completed. During my two weeks stay, there was constant banging, drilling, hammering, not to mention the view from my balcony looking like a building site. One extended family checked out after 2/3 nights and moved to the Seketur Hotel, where i know they enjoyed the remainder of their trip. I decided to stay at the Tugay, however apart from sleeping and having breakfast there, i would be away from the hotel all day/evening. It was impossible to have an afternoon nap for the constant building work related noise as well as doors being slammed shut. I love Calis Beach and will return there year after year and i always try to remain positive, even while disappointment reigned supreme. I've waited over a week to leave this review, thinking i might have thought less of it, however i paid good money for a well earned holiday, only to be let down. I'm sure once the work is complete this hotel will continue to receive good reviews.......sadly i can't offer that.

Having read all the rave reviews for the Tugay Hotel I had high hopes. We booked through Jewel In the Crown holidays. We returned a week ago.
On arrival, we were allocated a room adjacent to the small reception area. It was around 2am so we just went straight to bed. We were woken at 5.30 am by someone else checking into the hotel, then again at 7am by other guests chatting in reception. We have a young daughter, she had very little sleep. We spoke to the owner, Ilkay, he said he only had one other room available ( the other were being used as store rooms). The room was extremely tiny, they squeezed in an extra bed, we decided to accept it as we would at least get undisturbed sleep. It was far from ideal for three people though. The balcony (complete with rusty railings) over looked an area that was being used for storing junk, old sunbeds, mattresses, sacks etc.......not very pleasant. We wasn't expected a 5 star hotel but the grounds of the hotel should be kept clean and tidy.
The first few days were ok, sometimes we struggled to find room with shade around the pool as nonresidents were being allowed to use the pool. I have no objection to this but there should be ample shades for the residents, there were only three large umbrellas along one side of the pool.
THEN the noise started! From 8.30am, banging, drilling, sawing, welding. No chance of peace around the pool so we went to the beach. We returned for a siesta, no chance the noise was horrendous. The following morning the noise was the same, we spoke to Ilkay and he assured us that it would only be for a couple more hours. We went out for the day and returned in the late afternoon to more noise. I felt like I was holidaying on a building site. I went to sit on the balcony, it was covered in builing dust, as were the towels I had left to dry. No wonder, the builders wer throwing all the rubble over the balcony above onto the floor below.
The owner avoided us.
The following day was the same so we went out for the day to escape. Because the noise started early in the morning and continued all day we decided our daughter neede and early night. However, even at nearly 10pm the banging and drilling continued. My husband went up to the workers and asked them to stop then went to see the owner who was no where to be found, the only member of staff around didn't speak English.
The next morning at breakfast, the owner made no apology and just gave us dirty looks. The rep from the travel company came round and agreed it was unacceptable, she was also appalled at the state of the grounds. She spoke to her boss, he rang the owner. Before we went out that day, we bumped into Ilkay, he offered to make up for 'his mistakes' (his words) by offering us a much larger room, he showed it to us, we accepted and he said it would be ready when we returned. Sadly, when we got back, he had given the room to someone else!!
The following day, we could take no more of the the noise, the filthy grounds (our room did not overlook the pool which was the only tidy area) and the dirty looks from the owner bacuse we had dared to complain. We spoke to the rep and asked to move, it was at our expense but it was worth it, we couldn't spend another week like this.
Luckily Calis Beach is a wonderful resort so our time out of the hotel made up for the fact that our time in the hotel was so disappointing.
I have never needed to complain about a hotel before, hopefully I won't have to ever again. Thankfully the Jewel In The Crown Rep, Fiona, was excellent and did everything she could to help us but Jewel In The Crown should have informed us of the building work before we travelled, it had been going on for a few weeks and it's set to continue as the owner is building a laundry behind the hotel.

Have just returned from another 2 week holiday at this lovely family run hotel. Everyone is so friendly, extremely helpful and thoughtful. The rooms are quite small and basic, but clean and comfortable. Ilkay has now turned the top floor into guest accommodation too and, although we didn't actually see them, our rep assured us they were very nice.
We are already planning our next visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a mat in the bathroom as the floors can get very slippery.
