Not long back after staying at the Cettia Beach Resort, was my first trip to Turkey and certainly enjoyed it. The hotel is approx 1 hour 45 minute coach transfer from Dalaman Airport, which included a rest stop about half way for anyone requiring food,refreshments, toilet or simply just to stretch your legs.
Checked into the hotel at about 6pm to which there were no issues, had to pay extra for the safe in room but this was expected. Bags were taking upstairs by member off staff and he activated the safe for us. The room itself was modernly furnished and air con worked a treat, rooms was cleaned daily along with fresh bedding and towels. Fridge in room was stocked with complimentary bottles of water, 3 tins of juice and bottle of beer.
We had booked all inclusive for our stay, breakfast was served from 0700-1030, lunch was served 1230-1400 and dinner was served 1930-2130 all of which was open buffet with 'live action' food being cooked outside during each meal time. The food was good, however began to become largely repetitive near the end of the stay with there always being some incarnation of meatballs,turkey,fish and rice being on the menu for dinner and lunch. Snacks were available from the Tirziik Bar & Gril outside from 1300-1700, 1930-2130 and again at night from 2330-2400 which served chips, burgers, pizza and chicken nuggets. There was ice cream served in the pool area from 1500-1600 which was popular and always queued for. Drinks for the all inclusive were all local spirits vodka,whiskey,dark rum, peach schnapps, raki and efes beer on tap. Soft drink & water dispensers were freely available in the restaurant and outside bar.
The entertainers Izzy & Ozzy were on the go from around 1000 till midnight and were always full off energy but wasn't pushy when it came to asking about the activities they held. Would also recommend the Buddha Spa located at the base of the hotel where a range of traditional Turkish treatments are available at reasonable cost. There is also a friendly on site Photographer whom will likely introduce himself when he first see you but isn't pushy for you to book nor take any photos if you have a shoot, but I must say his photos are really good and we had bought 30 prints which were available the following day along with a disc of all the photos for £100.
Would defiantly recommend a stay at Cettia Beach for people looking for a relaxing, chilled out stay. It's situated out with the hustle and noise of the busier bars and restaurants on the beach front but is only a 10-15 minute walk away from them and about hours walk away from the centre or Marmaris.
