I saw this hotel on the internet and enquired if they had rooms available, the owner, John, rang me in Ireland the following day and stated he could accomadate my wife and I. A few weeks later we duly arrived in Turkey and were collected by Cem, Johns' son. As soon as we arrived at the hotel we were made more than welcome by John and his wife Mary.

During our few weeks there we were well looked after and had an excellent holiday with John helping us with any queries that we had, the rooms were kept spotless and were cleaned every day, the bar facilities were excellent and they used a system that involved purchasing a voucher and everytime you got drinks the appropiate amout was deducted from the voucher, a great system which meant that you did not have to carry cash with you all the time.

The hotel is located close to the town and beaches and is adjacent to the local bus stop and it is also on the Dolmus route, therefore getting around the area was no problem. There was a large swimming pool along with an outdoor jacuzzi beside it, fresh towels were provided in the room for use on the numerous sun loungers around the pool.

The meals were of an excellent standard, the menu was extensive and the food was served within the pleseant surrounding of the hotel. Food was available all day from breakfast time to evening and bar snacks along with ice cream, soft drinks, beer etc were available throughout the day. The bar stayed open late in the evening and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly.

We had a wonderful time at the Caretta and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would certainly highly recommend it to other travellers, we look forward to calling in at the Carreta shortly.

The Caretta Apartments are for most people, a home from home, with everything necessary to make your holiday the experience that you want. Whether it be quiet, or by being part of the 'family' trips that are organised by Dr John, the choice is yours. Everything possible is done by John, his family and staff to make your holiday special. The rooms are spacious with balconies. They have a small kitchen area with two to four rings for cooking. There is a fridge, toaster and kettle and a selection of crockery and cutlery.supplied and if required the use of an iron and ironing board. The maids will do a washing for you for a small charge. The swimming pool is small and you can get splashed with water if the children are jumping into the pool. The apartments are situated a short walk away from the town centre which makes them very quiet although there is evening entertainment provided by Dr John from Bingo to Belly Dancing but not every night so you can have a quiet drink at the bar if that is what takes your fancy. I used to come to these apartments with my husband but now that I am on my own, I still find that a welcome awaits me from guests that I have met over the years. Dont hesitate to book your visit here, otherwise you wont get in....İt is so popular that people return year after year!!!!!

We stayed in two different apartments during our two weeks there, due to previous bookings being honoured, but were warned of this in advance. The first apartment was really special, with the balcony having a wonderful view over the swimming pool to the sea. The second didn't have such a nice outlook, but was still very comfortable and well equipped for preparing breakfasts and light snacks. There was a spacious living/dining room with kitchen area including kettle, microwave, fridge and bottled gas hob.Both had spacious separate bedrooms with a good amount of storage, and both has clean and modern bathrooms with shower.
A bit of a stroll down to Calis Beach, but we liked a bit of exercise after dinner if we went there to eat, and as other reviews have said, the dolmus stop is almost right outside.
John & his wife are extremely friendly & helpful, and the bar & restaurant area is a very pleasant place to sit, with wifi available (a bit intermittent in the apartments, but more often than not working ok there too).
The pool was lovely and clean, and usually plenty of beds available in both sun or shade.

I have been to the Caretta six times now and my partner (who I introduced to the Caretta) has been twice and we are both looking forward to visiting again this October. We have both been of the mind that we would never go to the same place twice, but once you visit the Caretta its very difficult not to go back. Your holiday starts from the moment you step off the plane, you are met by Duran (Dr John (the owners) right hand man), who immediately takes your bags and leads you to the waiting mini bus, which takes you on your journey to Calis. As you make your way towards Calis and the Caretta Apartments you get a weird feeling, like your on your way home to see family you haven't seen for ages. The Caretta Apartments are clean and spacious and if you require anything all you have to do is ask. Dr John, his wife Mary and the rest of the staff at the Caretta make sure your stay is relaxed and happy. Nothing is too much trouble for them. If you need to go into the nearby town of Fethiye, especially for the market, Dr John will most often offer you a lift. This is not the norm as I have never experienced this when I've been anywhere else. The apartments are situated close to local shops and is a short walk to the shingle beach. I would certainly recommend the Caretta to anyone.

The Caretta Apts is a wonderful place to stay. close to the beach, right next to the dolmus stop that takes you into Fethiye or wherever you would like to go. small grocery store right down the road if you don't want to go into town. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, the shower was great with lots of hot water (and if you have travelled much you know how welcome that is..). Since it is an apartment, they do not supply everything a hotel might but it is not a problem to get what you need at the little market down the street. Highly recommend this place for longer stays. Can, the owner, is a friendly and helpful man who bends over backwards to make his guests comfortable. We had a wonderful time here and would love to go back. Only issue is: if you are a light sleeper like me, ask for an apt in the back away from the road.

Perfect pick up and return airport service supplied by the owner in air- con people carrier.Good size shower/toilet unlike the normal Turkish size.Bedroom and living/dining area also good size for holiday appt.Pool and appt cleaning good,bar prices very reasonable,good location,beach/restaurants 10 min. stroll on the flat no hills here,bus stop at the front,supermarket 100mtrs where you can get just about everything to self cater,a very good host who is only too willing to help in any way he can.15 mins in to Fethiye and the harbour but above all this is a lovely quiet location so after the hustle and bustle of a day out you return to peace.Oh! and to my delight,no loud music ever played at the bar/pool area to disturb you which for me was a joy.In all honesty you would be hard pushed to fault it overall for the money paid.I travelled independently 2 adults and a child aged 11 for relaxing at the beach,dining out and diving.If you can`t relax here and enjoy, see a doctor.Bedding and towel changing was the best I have experienced after travelling Turkey umpteen times.
