My Husband John, my Nephew Daniel,my Daughter Liberty and myself April have just returned on Saturday 26th April 2014 after an amazing 9 night stay at the Jiva Beach Resort in Calis Beach Fethiye.
When we arrived on Thursday 17th April 2014 at 10.30pm(Hotels first day of opening for the season) after a 45 minute coach journey we had such a lovely welcome from the Hotel Reception and Porter, the hotel has a very impressive relaxing and calm modern décor, we felt relaxed as soon as we arrived. We also got to meet the Hotel owner who was very friendly and welcoming and sorted out my patio door locks immediately with the Maintenance team, could I just say that all of your staff are a credit to you and to your Hotel and to see you walking around and keeping a check on things on a daily basis and having your meals in your hotel is good to see.
After checking in our bags were taken to our room by the porter who was very friendly and welcoming.We entered our room No 246 a Front Suite Sea view on the first floor, we were amazed, what a sea view with the mountains beyond and such a large room with 2 balconies, King size Bed and enough room for another bed of the same size, loads of wardrobe space hanging and shelves and also a complimentary locking digital safe with tea and coffee making facilities & flat screen Television & two balcony`s. Pool/Beach Towels are also complimentary and can be changed daily.
The other room in our Suite had twin beds, again a good size room with lots of wardrobe space & flat screen Television and its own balcony.
The bathroom was also beautifully decorated with a large mirror and separate shaving mirror and complimentary shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and a shower cap. A double Glass shower door opening to a walk in huge rainfall overhead shower and also a hand held one on the wall for children, the power of the water was brilliant and always hot. We asked for extra bedding which was delivered immediately and extra pillows, a quilt and cover not those horrible itchy blankets. Opening the curtains in the morning was a delight, the view was out of this world from the front and side balconies and the sunsets in the evening were very impressive, I'm glad we paid a little extra for a suite it was well worth it for the views and the extra space. Having said that the swim up pool rooms would be great too if you want peace and quiet away from the main pool, each to their own, I enjoy the atmosphere with the kids and the pool bar being able to mingle and meet new people.
The beach had it's own little bar with waiter service, the guy serving was very friendly and always ready to help with a smile.
The hotel food was of an excellent quality, plenty of choice to suit all tastes even for fussy eaters like myself and always hot. The homemade bread was a delight and obviously very fresh. The desserts were very impressive especially the profiteroles, my only complaint was that there was no ice cream for myself or children, maybe this could be introduced soon.
The waiters were on form constantly, very helpful and friendly at all times, serving drinks to your table and clearing away tables.
The coffee out of the machine was good.
Bottled Water, Beer, Wine and Spirits were served with your meal.
The Pool Bar opened at 9am serving all drinks Hot & Cold right through until Midnight, The food hall bar was open 24hrs, all the Bar staff were efficient and very friendly.
The Lukka Lounge down near the beach was great with all drinks All Inclusive and non All Inclusive being served and hot drinks. A beautiful setting in the Lagoon with Bar Stools and also Large Comfy Sofa's and tables to chill out in to enjoy the Sea Breeze.
The Barman who we nicknamed Tom as in Tom Cruise out of Cocktail was so friendly, welcoming and entertaining with his juggling skills with the bottles glasses and fresh fruit. His English was brilliant and his Customer Service was faultless, thank you for making our evenings enjoyable.
Now for the entertainment staff, well what can I say, they were all friendly, funny and made our days enjoyable trying to get us to take part in the activities day and night, if we refused at any time they were not offended, but they did try really hard to get as many people involved as possible so well done to Apo, Mujdat, Bob, Zaine, their Manager and the rest of the entertainment team you are all lovely friendly people and do a fantastic job keeping the guests happy and entertained.
A special well done for getting my husband Big John up off his sunbed and joining in the activities especially the Mr Jiva Beach Contest which he won.
The whole of the Hotel was spotlessly clean even the pool toilets were lush and well looked after.
The Cleaners came every day, always fresh towels and the beds made up every day leaving the room fresh and clean.
The main pool was lovely and clean with a well maintained lounging area with Plenty of sunbeds with umbrellas and more soft sofas around the bar area, The pool slides were a great hit with the kids big & small keeping them well entertained.
Music was played around the pool bar daily which was nice to listen too as it was not to overpowering, the DJ would also change the music to your request which was good.
The Hotel Spa looked fabulous they had a small indoor pool and steam room and sauna and a Turkish Bath. The Pool/Beach Towels were changed here daily.
On our last day after checking out at 12 noon we left our cases at Reception and were able to Shower and change in the Beautiful Spa Downstairs so there was no need to keep the room on for longer.
A trip to Fethiye Market on a Tuesday is an experience!!! It's funny.
The Dolmus buses are great and so cheap if you want to get around, it stops right outside the back of the hotel on beach there is always one passing by and 2tl each way.
There are some shops and bars a ten minute walk away on Calis Beach and a lovely Restaurant called Nil Bar (give it a try you'll love it), the staff again are very welcoming the food is excellent get on the Dolmus bus to it the driver will know it and drop you off right outside.
To sum up this Hotel, if you want a Fantastic Holiday with excellent quality hot food, good All Inclusive Drinks, an amazing Beach side setting, spotlessly clean everywhere and the Best ever staff who made you feel the most welcome then don't hesitate to book the Jiva Beach Resort I can honestly say that this is one of the best All Inclusive Hotels that we have stayed in and we have stayed in quite a few, there is nothing we could find to complain about and the weather was also brilliant better than I expected for the time of year. We hope to return soon. Many Thanks to all the staff for making our stay so wonderful.
