After a rocky start to our holiday turning up at the accommodation and facing the possibility of having no where to stay for 2 weeks, then finding out we had been moved hotels and had been sent an email but we couldn't find it and were shocked it was followed up by a letter, we eventually arrived at the Lemon Tree and I have to say it was 10 times better than the accommodation we had originally booked! The cleaners came into the apartment every day and bedding and towels were changed every 3 days. If you do need any extra toilet roll etc just ask the staff cant do enough for you.
I would recommend getting a safety deposit box (available for 5 lier a day) or locking all your valuables/money away in a suitcase etc because the owners are not liable for anything that goes missing. There is also air-con available for an extra cost but as we had been to turkey before we were expecting this.
The apartments themselves were a perfect size for us we travelled as 3 couples and had 3 single bedroom apartments. In the wardrobe we only had about 4 coat hangers so I would recommend taking extra if you need them.
Most of the time it seemed like we had the pool to ourselves it was lovely and relaxing and the bar played chilled music throughout the day. In other reviews I have read about the road being loud but I have to say I didn't notice the noise of the road once while we were out there and we were in apartment 11 which was right next to the road, there was a dog up the road that annoyed me once about 5 in the morning but I found the whole atmosphere of the hotel relaxed a home away from home.
The apartments are run but a family there is Ali and Janan the parents and Ali built the apartments himself as something to do in his retirement lol. There is Hande the daughter who is lovely and speaks very good English as she has spent some time in England and then there is Emre the son he is the chef makes lovely food and is very funny. They couldn't do enough for us wanting our holiday to be perfect. Ali took us out to a local bakery and the cakes was amazing he also took us to some old windmills on top of a hill and the views were amazing on one side you could see the whole of the Bodrum coast and on the other you could see the Gumbet coast.
We mainly ate in the Blanca restaurant in Bitez amazing food and the offered a free shuttle service if we wanted to go to the beach during the day they offered to pick us to the beach and then back the the hotel then back to the restaurant for our evening meal, even though it was offered to take us the the beach we only used the shuttle service for our evening meals they are very good aswell you could have your meal go the the shops of a walk around Bitez and then go back to the restaurant for a lift back to the apartments, the shuttle service is offered by most of the restaurants in Bitez.
I really didn't want to come home lovely area and the best accommodation and the most friendly staff I have ever stayed in or met in my 4 trips to Bitez.
