I have just returned with my partner for Olu deniz after staying at the Belcehan Beach hotel...not to be confused with its sister hotel the Belcehan Delux hotel. I had read the reviews before going and was pleased that it surpassed expectations. Yes the rooms are quite basic but have all you need bed storage space dressing table and en-suite. The rooms arent very large but are kept inpeccably clean daily by the friendly houskeeping staff!! And after all all you do is sleep and change there! We stayed in a ground floor rom which was great cos the balcony led onto poolside.
I loved the fact that the pool was away from the road as I personally dont like to sunbathe in full view of the world as most other hotels in the nearby area seem to have their pools right on the road!!
The hotel is just 5 minutes walk to the beach and the strip and just a 10 minute or so walk to the lagoon! If you have young children I would suggest the lagoon over the beach as the beach has strong currents and gets deep very quickly. Also be prepared for shale not sand we got surf shoes on day 1 and they were the best purchase of the hols!! Although some sand beaches can be found at the lagoon.
But what really made this holiday special and unique was the hotel staff, harun 'harry' the bartender and his assistant Sefa created such a great atmosphere that we and most other guests spent most evenings drinking in the hotel bar by the pool. Also Adam and Altan at reception were v friendly and helpful too. And when they found out I was pregnant they couldnt do enough to help me.
The only down thing I would say is we went half board and ate dinner in the delux. The food was great quality but not much selection some days only 1 main course to choose from so we only ate their half the nights in the end. But again the staff were fabulous and especially the turkish night was great fun and definitely worth it!
The area itself is quiet enough in May so if you are looking to party go to marmaris but if you are looking for a relaxing romantic or family holiday it is perfect and there are lots of day excursions to keep you busy.
