A well deserved 1st place in the Fethiye area.
I am a repeat poster on the Caretta Apartments and make no excuse for it. The entire experience is unique and so enjoyable.
I have never booked into accommodation, anywhere, where I, and all other guests were so well looked after.
There is virtually nothing that Dr John, his family and his staff would not do for you to make sure your holiday was totally enjoyable.
Dr John has a knack of getting his guests to 'mingle'. During our last stay there were many nationalities present, Chinese, British, North American, South African, Turkish, a family originally from Afghanistan and some Geordies :) all of whom were able to relate to each other and get along.
All down to Dr John's personality and his family and staff.
Why are all hotels/apartments not like this?

Room Tip: I have no preference on rooms as all those I have been allocated were very good. There are no 'b...

Caretta Apart Hotel is 100% worthy of its wonderful reviews, I have just enjoyed a 10 night stay and loved every minute. The trip advisor reviews are Spot on!

It is family run and Dr.Can, the owner spends his time ensuring his guests are comfortable and catered for, he, his family and staff are exemplary.
The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable, we had a pool view with two balconies!!
There were always plenty of sun loungers by the pool all with sun and shade. The breakfast is cooked to order and food and drink prices are very reasonably priced!
It was clear to see that many guests had been coming year after year, Dr Cans hospitality and care for his guests is second to none! It made such a refreshing change from all the big corporate faceless all inclusives! This hotel had personality and character, which was just lovely!
An all round super place, I'm booked to go back already.

I completely agree with all the previous positive reviews of this accommodation. The rooms are clean and have all the basics you will need. We had a terrace with a table and chairs, but we hardly used this, preferring to spend our time in the bar, enjoying the atmosphere. The air con in the rooms is great and means there are no sleepless nights due to the heat. The main attraction of these apartments though is the warm welcome you receive from the staff, owners and other guests. My son is three(and blonde) and was an instant hit with everyone. All the other guests were nice to him and always took the time to speak to him. The hosts and staff here are the nicest and most helpful you could ever wish to meet. My son now has 'turkish grandma' (Mary) and 'uncle Jon' (Dr Jon)
Dr Jon arranges trips to various places upon request. One of the highlights of this trip was a boat trip arranged by Dr Jon. The boat was small - not like the massive booze cruise boats you see around. There was a small well stocked bar and the food was amazing with plenty of choice. There was no juice or milk on board for my son so the captain swam to a boat across the bay to get him some (he was brought back by speedboat)
The pool is clean with plenty of sunbeds and the bar is reasonably priced with a selection of bar snacks.
We cant wait to go back next year and the only downside really was having to come home

Just returned from another holiday at these apartments and cannot wait to go back later in the year. It is like returning home. These family run apartments are warm and welcoming. The apartments have all you require for basic cooking with the provision of a 2/4 ring cooker, a microwave, kettle, toaster and fridge. There is also a chef who prepares bar snacks or evening meals if you cannot be bothered going out in the evening. The apartments are also well situated for access to the many restaurants that Calis has to offer with them only being a 5 to 10 minute walk away. The beach is also the same walking time away but the apartments have a small pool with children's pool and sun bed's available free of charge. The owner also arranges trips for the guests so that they can get to know each other and also the surrounding area. He takes you to some secluded beaches for a barbecue, or to the Ghost Village or to the Blue Lagoon. If you can get enough people interested in the trip, he will do his best to take you there.

These apartments are not 5 star but they are more than 5 star in hospitality.

We have just returned from attending the wedding of our friends which was held at the Caretta Aparthotel and we cannot praise this place highly enough! John, Mary and all the staff were so welcoming, friendly and accommodating, nothing is too much trouble. We had our 9 month old son, Theo, with us and he was treated like a baby within their own family by everyone which was great and made us feel very comfortable. The grounds and pool area were lovely and well maintained. Beautiful surroundings, close to all the amenities. A short stroll to the beautiful beach. Can't wait to return!

Excellent Host is John and with his family nothing is to much trouble, they will go out of their way to ensure you have a great holiday.

The rooms are a good size and comfortable and the new 2nd floor refurbished rooms are finished to a very high standard with sea views.

The location of the hotel is great, close to all the shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs are quiet and have balconies

Super big rooms in great condition. Balcony, fridge, stove, sink, great water pressure, the works.
You'll be in upper fethiye about a 5 min walk from the beach and the boardwalk.

It's a great run and a great place.

But Dr. Can makes this place great. At first, I found him a bit eccentric but he's a quick study and he's the guy you want on your side when traveling to Turkey. He'll jump on the phone if you're having a problem with your travel arrangements, fight the good battle if he senses you're getting a raw deal and make you feel at home.

And he'll make an omelette instead of the turkish breakfast you'll get everywhere else.

Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Huge, big 1 bedrooms. Strong wifi!
