The tower hotel is situated really well in Oludeniz only 5 - 10 minute walk from main resort and beach . The hotel is basic rooms cleaned every day . We stayed bed and breakfast not much selection but enough to keep you going til lunch . We found the staff to be not that friendly couple of the bar staff made an effort but the rest didnt really bother receptionist and manager very unhelpful . There are some really good resturants in the town which we used La Mare lovely itailian served excellent food also another resturant along sea front called Help . Good cocktail bar called magic garden just down the road from hotel 6 lira for cocktails where the hotel was charging 10- 15 Lira . Beware you are not allowed to take any food or drink into the hotel from outside. I cant say we didnt have a good holiday because we did Oludeniz is beautiful and would definetly go back again I wouldnt stay at the tower hotel .

good hotel 3 star dont expect 5 basic food but good and plenty
rooms small but cleaned everday.
we stayed half board if you are dont pay for turkish night wednesday you get same food and you can watch it all from bar for a 4 lira drink not paying 30 lira for t night you only get cheap wine for your money, drink in the town bars not the hotel..
dont take to much t lira with you big shops take pound and the rate is better in oula deniz than britiain plenty of place to change money
take your drinks into your room in a bag so eyes dont see. family owned and eyes about

My friend and I stayed at the Tower Hotel for a week. We arrived after an overnight flight, tired, ready for sleep and our room was ready for us - bliss! The room we had was at the far end away from the main road. It was very comfortable, clean and quiet with a little terrace to sit out in the evenings before going out. They also provided a washing line for us to hang out our swimwear and sarongs - nice touch! Our room was cleaned every day, fresh sheets and towels.

The location was perfect, 5 minutes walk down to the beach past local amenities, bars and restaurants. It's a quieter part of this small resort away from the main strip, crowd and loud music which is a welcome break.

The hotel staff are lovely and friendly and took delight in telling me that the beach was 5 minutes away - so sweet!

My only very minor negative feedback is the breakfast. It was a good continental selection but it could have been varied day by day. The fresh tomatoes are delicious!

The area - there's plenty of restaurants to choose from, delicious food especially chicken shish from Ottoman's, lovely Turkish beer, shisha by the beach at night , Turkish ice cream is yummy and stretchy?! try teh pistacchio. Excellent views from 1700m paragliding - a must!!!

I would definitley stay at this hotel again.

Just got back from two fantastic weeks in Olu Deniz. The Hotel & food was excellent(complements to the chef). The rooms were clean but on the small side & the air conditioning although effective was a bit noisy. We didn't go to the Turkish Folk night, although I hear it was good. The pool is nice & warm although did appear 'over chlorinated' at times. The staff were very effecient & courtious. I would definately return to the hotel in the future should we visit the resort again.

Just back from a weeks stay in Olu Deniz,staying at the Tower hotel which;on a map,looks like its towards the rear of the town but Olu Deniz is such a small resort,it's only a 5 minute stroll to the beach.
Lovely hotel for the price,regularly cleaned rooms with air con,well looked after warm pool and terrace,good evening entertainment and the staff and owners are excellent,really friendly and accomodating.Definitely going back to Olu Deniz,might try a different hotel but have no quarms in recommending the Tower to anyone. Not many children there though so if you're a young family,there are probably more suitable hotels.
But if you're a couple its a superb place to stay!

Just returned from a 2 week stay at the Tower Hotel. I read some of the reviews before I went as I was travelling with 2 small children. Some of the reviews did suggest the rooms were quite small and they are right, so I suppose it was our fault for booking. If it had just been me and my husband then it would have been fine. However, rooms are not acceptable for a family of four, I was totally alarmed at the size and the amount of stairs I had to walk up and down to get to the room they initially put us in. I immediately complained and ended up in the room by the pool side bar, anyone staying there at this time will know who we are, so hi to all those people. Think this was the largest room and maybe kept for those on a honey moon, still basic, but much larger than the rest. Rooms are also very clean, in fact they never stop cleaning, the staff work so hard.
We found the staff to be very accommodating, friendly and excellent with the children, especially Sonar (head bar man). We stayed on a half board basis and found the food to be of a good standard. Tip - much cheaper to eat and drink out of the hotel if staying on a B&B only.
They had a great bus service in Oludeniz, buses run every five minutes and take you to the near by towns for about £1 pp , these towns are well worth a visit for shopping and nightlife etc.
We also went on a boat trip, which we would highly recommend, booked with a company on the the beach front.
Would definately stay at the tower again, but only on a two to a room basis.
For all those interested we stayed in room 613.

We have just had 2 wnderful weeks at the Tower Hotel, Sonar who's in charge of the bar area goes out of his way to help, he is pleasant, chatty and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is typical Turkish toast, cereal, meat, cheese, bread, melon, juice, tea and coffee.The Turkish night is great fun traditional Turkish dancing and a belly dancer as well. Rooms and grounds are kept spotless and the staff all work long hours cleaning, tidying and never seem to stop. The hotel is only a short walk from the shops, beach and lagoon, you can hop on a dolmus for 2.5tl to Hisaronu where it's slightly cooler in the evening and there's some lovely shops to browse and plenty of places to eat or for 3.5tl you can go to Fethiye to the Tuesday market. Yes they ask you not to take food or drink bought outside into your rooms but what they don't see they don't know about!! Air con is £3 per day and you definately need it. We paid our room tab every few days to keep on top of it but always found it to be correct. The music around the pool can irritate a bit but you can live with it, the gardens are pretty with lovely trees and flowers. There are so many nice places to eat we never had a bad meal at all, we liked the Magic Garden, the Secret Garden, the Olive Tree/Garden (not sure which) and the Atta Lagoon. We booked our trips with Alex at Sea Horse travel just down the road and enjoyed all of them. We had a lovely relaxing holiday and hope to return.
