Villa Daffodil
Ranked #25 of 102 Hotels in Fethiye
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We stayed 3 nights at Villa Daffodil and unfortunately the first impressions were slightly coloured by the manager of the day informing us that by booking through hotels4u we would have to pay extra for air con and the use of the room safe. It did erk us as we had stayed in various accommodation in turkey (which I have all reviewed) and this was the first time this has happened. Needless to say we didn't opt for either of these and our room (a choice of two in the courtyard) was perfectly shaded from the sun so we didn't really suffer from being cooked. I also checked my voucher from hotels4u just in case I made a mistake in booking a room without air con but there was no mention of that being a supplementation. Apparently, according to the day manager, it is something that only happens if you book through hotels4u so it would be interesting to see what other reviewers have to comment.
Otherwise, we did have a very pleasant stay, rooms were clean, the breakfast was served at 8 and I particularly like the bar with the lime tree growing intertwined in and around the area. We met the famous general on the second day, a congenial man who was recovering from a knee operation. Although we had an opportunity to raise any problems with the man himself when he asked us how our stay was, we both refrained from saying anything as he had just left hospital and should really have been recuperating. But he strikes me as a hands on personality and if you do happen to stay on his charge, I don't think you will be disappointed with your stay.

We have just returned from the Villa Daffodil for the second time this year. This hotel is very welcoming with friendly, helpful staff at all times. The situation of the hotel is almost "paradise" overlooking the bay. Cleanliness is excellent right throughout the hotel with clean linen every day. A very varied buffet breakfast is taken in the dining room overlooking the bay. Evening meals are also available and are of good quality. The local transport into the town of Fethiye is very frequent and cheap. We cannot wait to return again in the Spring of 2013 and know that we will get a warm welcome.

Villa daffodill is a fantastic little hotel, very clean, rooms a bit small but adequate, excellent bathrooms and air con (a must in the very hot weather) the staff were lovely and very helpful. Buses evey 5 mins in to town where ther are several good restaurants, bars & fantastic boat trips. The hotel is set in a quite area with amazing views over the marina with a lovely little beach a short distance away and two more beaches a short bus ride away. A fantastic place tp stay can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Rooms at back may be quieter?

The Villa Daffodil is a bit away from the town centre along the coast road south. Looking from the dining room or bar terraces you can look out over the sea and marina below. The room we had was one in the lower older building with a small 'terrace' opening onto an enclosed courtyard. No view but cooler perhaps than the rooms above (which may cost more?) which have balconies out into the sunshine. We were met (at 0100 hrs) at the door and taken to the room (actually given a choice at that point!) which was a twin. We rearranged the beds into an off-centre double (the staff helped) which we noticed was properly done to 'balance the room' the next day when the room was cleaned. Not a vast room, with a tiny bathroom but big enough and perfectly clean and comfortable. The shower worked well with no shortage of hot water or water pressure. Beds were made and towels changed every day. Aircon really good as it was a very hot week!
Food in the restaurant was good, not perhaps too adventurous but easily as good as most other places. The open air restaurant not being too busy though, it was slightly lacking in atmosphere. Cost was very reasonable as each main dish we had seemed to come with a complimentary mezze-style starter or two and fresh fruit at the end of the meal. We had a tab at the hotel for meals and drinks and at the end of the week, as is usual for this part of Turkey, it seemed to be for less than we thought!! Breakfast was very Turkish with a lot of local cheese, boiled eggs, cucumber and tomatoes. But there was nice bread, cereals, yoghurt, jams etc. Don't expect a fried english meal!!
The delightful staff were smiling and helpful all week, and we met the owner only on the last day who insisted that we could keep our room until we needed to depart at 1800 for the airport: a very kind gesture as check-out is normally pre-cleaning at 1200. Obviously proud of his hotel!
The pool is again immaculately clean: rather small, but the hotel wasn't busy and you wouldn't perhaps want to stay there all day: no real view but a garden feel all round with shade, beds and clean water. Lovely for an early or late dip!
Generally a great place to stay: dolmus will take you to town every 10 mins or so for 2TL and we would thoroughly recommend this hotel for those wishing for a quieter stay away from the hubbub of the main town: which itself is really nice and not the Blackpool style razzamatazz of the now-wrecked Olu Deniz.

Villa Daffodil is perfectly located 15 minutes from downtown (noisy) Fethiye. There are minibuses every 15 minutes to take you downtown within minutes. The pool is small but pretty and in a garden like setting. The breakfast is nice - with a view of the marina. The manager arranged a lovely and inexpensive fish dinner for us at the hotel one night - it was fresh from the nearby fish market. I had a somewhat small room with a nice view - 601, but for a bit more $$$ you can get a much larger window - I think it was 602??

Management is very nice and accommodating - some spoke English better than others. This is a very relaxing place to chill out.

Our room was very comfortable, with a small patio onto an interior courtyard, which was nice. The view across the yacht harbor from the dining patio was wonderful. The included breakfast buffet was excellent. We reserved the dinner plan ahead because we thought it would be too much trouble to get into town. The dinners were perfectly acceptable, especially given the great view. But there are very frequent, cheap minibus shuttles passing the hotel and going to town. Knowing that, its better to dine in town, with lots of choices.
We enjoyed the location because it was quiet, and we walked around the harbor to lovely quiet beach.

Room Tip: interior rooms face a pleasant courtyard

We stayed here for one night prior to collecting a sailing yacht for a weeks charter.
Very clean, great staff, great breakfast, pleasant pool area with mature gardens

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are great but can be noisy. Very steep stairs and low roof obstruction to the top...
