I visited this hotel last september for two weeks with my family and family friends, 4 of which were teenagers. The location is perfect situated in the mountains a short 5/10 walk away from the small town and beaches. The staff are so friendly and helpful, they really make you feel welcome and build up a good friendship, every day they make up games to play and always have a couple of games of water polo which gets everyone involved. They have little night entertainment but do have weekly bingo night and turkish night which are just a bit of fun, they have half price drinks and cocktails which make it very cheap to drink there. During the day there is a chef by the side of the bar, who will cook you anything from jacket potatos, pizza, burgers,omlettes etc def try the bacon and cheese toastie. Murat was a very good laugh really made the holiday for us. The girls there are great to, learning your name and having a chat with you. Yes the pool is small but was just right for this small family hotel, could be more sunbeds though!! Alot of stray cats in Olu Deniz but this did not bother me, they miow alot at night which i heard some people complain about but did not affect me.
Olu Deniz and the area around itself is amazing I honestly did not want to leave there was so much to do, things not to miss are:
Turkish baths - definatly worth going and very reasonably priced, (be aware massages are done by men)
Boat trips - worked out to cost around £7 each for a whole days trip and lunch included which was very nice, take you to various little attractions, and beaches.
Paragliding - if your not scared of heights this is an AMAZING experience that you have to do, The drive up the steep mountain was the bit to bite your lip about (actually thought i wasn't going to make it), not the jump off a 6,500ft mountain, the view is just amazing and suprisingly very relaxing.
Saklikent Gorge - we thought we were catching a one way bus there but turned out we had booked a tour bus, but was worth it in the end, took us to a couple of good places as well as a lovely and cheap resturant. The gorge was beautiful, freezing cold water which you have to walk through to get there, slighty irratating young boys splashing the water on you, trying to hold your hand across and taking pictures, but just a bit of fun, also the water rafting was very fun beautful views and mini mud bath at the end. One of the best days out I had.
Blue Lagoon: The lagoon is not free to go to, but it is very cheap and worth a few visits but beware it gets very very busy and you have to pay for sunbeds (they are very expensive), beach is made up of stones not sand, but the water is crystal clear. Try to visit sugar beach club which has its own private sandy beach, massage tent, bar serving very nice food, you can also rent out canoes and pedalos cheaply, they also have a playground for children and a volleyball net.
Fethiye market: about 20 minute bus drive, worth going to grab a few bargains, shisha pipes, turkish delight, turkish tea and baklava, with lots of free samples! always barter prices, managed to get things down from 20 lira to only 5 lire.
Rooms: Green and orange theme to it which I found odd but was ok over all, kept clean every day plently of hot water, could have done with a bigger mirror but made do, maids came almost every day, extras like petals and towel sculptures left on the beds, was a nice touch.
Food: We went B&B at this hotel i'm very glad we did, the selection of food for all-inclusive diners had very little choice as we ate there one night, very likely it was last nights left overs!! Breakfast was ok, I am quite a fussy eater when it comes to breakfast so didnt bother most days but rest of my family enjoyed it, there was a selection of boiled eggs, olives, yogurts, toast, cereal and squashes and hot drinks. There are some wonderful restaurants to choose from out side of the hotel we ate mostly in Olu deniz, but some nights ventured to near by town Hisaronu, which is a bit more commercial and 'British' but can still find some lovely places to eat, also Fethiye which is a bit further away but has some good restaurants especially for fresh fish. Belcekiz restaurant is a def to try if you want a change from turkish food, they offer Thai, Indian and Italian, and I have to say the service, cleanliness and presentation of the food is amazing not to mention the taste, better than alot of food I have eaten in England (try the ravioli!!) and is reasonably priced. Keep in mind that the resturants in the town centre are the most expensive. Most restaurants here have the biggest menus you have seen, they try to fit every dish possible on, so always find something to eat.
Nightlife: It's obviously not known for having wild night-life but it's not completely dead either, try buzz beach bar for a few cocktails and a nice view, there is a bar on the beach where you can sit on bean bags and have shisha and there are waiters who come round to serve you. There is a small club on the sea front, cant remember what it was called but had a good few nights in there, have foam partys etc. Bit more night-life when you go up to Hisaronu with places like Time-out and Zombie.
Overall I had the best holiday and would definatly go back some time soon.
