Just want to re-iterate what other guests have mentioned regarding Can, Mary & the Caretta. We have travelled to other parts of Turkey as well as Europe, Asia & the Caribbean and the best hosts we have encountered by far are Can & Mary. Their welcome and hospitality is genuine and they go that extra mile to make sure you have a wonderful stay at the Caretta. Just let them know if you have any special requirements ahead of a visit and they will try their utmost to oblige.
The hotel/apartments are a great base with the centre of Calis a short 5 minute walk away. From there you can get the water dolmus to Fethiye (for boat trips) or travel on further to places such as Olu Deniz etc. There is also a bus stop outside Caretta. That said, Can & Mary usually arrange trips out for added benefit of guests staying at Caretta. On our last visit we went to Kayakoy one late afternoon, followed by a meal in a restaurant chosen by Can. On another occasion we stopped off to do some cherry picking(!) on the way to a Turkish restaurant in the hills and completely off the tourist trail, which was really traditional and enjoyable.
You can get food and drink at Caretta which is excellent quality and good value. It also relaxing to chill out around the pool area or chat with other guests. We have visited Caretta three times in the last 10 years. The only reason we haven’t been back more often is our desire to see lots of different places. I have no hesitation in recommending Caretta, especially now that we have booked for next year and have a room guaranteed!
