Stayed at Hotel Mutlu in Calis last week. Picked this because of reviews on line and need to have somewhere comfortable and disability friendly. Hotel is superbly located on the beach front at the Fethiye end of the resort. Sunsets all along this resort front are STUNNING. Resort is flat so no hills for my OH to battle with (has limited mobility).
Hotel has lifts, and the room was as promised, had a side sea-view. Air conditioning feels not cool enough at first as it is fixed at 22 degrees, but as you acclimatise, you appreciate this setting. Very clean and furnishings quite smart for Turkey.
Sea is very calm,being a bay this has no tide and gently laps all day, unless the wind is up. The wind is something else, as it can be non-existent one minute and gusty the next. This is useful with the temps hitting the mid-forties in July. The views of the bay can be seen from the hotel, and the breeze blows in from the sea to the pool area.
Sea is not easy to get in and out of, having said that, and I had only one dip. OH didnt join me for the same reason.
Pool is nice, but not very big. Bigger than a dipping pool, not large enough for a decent swim. A midday pool game would have been nice, and it is just large enough for this.
Breakfasts were cold buffet, except the scrambled eggs served daily. Very nice, fresh and a good quality and choice if you are not too fussy about what you eat, and like me and OH, like to try different things. Bring your own teabags though.
Staff, as advertised, are friendly, and helpful, but at times, you get the impression you are not the most important person in the hotel. The time we were staying, the owner had his family visit, and sometimes, the staff made us too aware that the family were their first priority.
The only other criticism is the lack of any entertainments program. Its clear that the Mutlu is built to accomodate this, but it is noticeably absent. This is why the guests disappear to sample the fare offered by the many local restaurants, and why so few non-residents are seen at the hotel bar of an evening.
So would highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing break, giving access to the best of the rest of Calis, but will not be returning ourselves for a repeat visit.
