Shared a room with my friend at the back in block 3 which was far enough away from party nights at the bar ( as was block 2) to not be disturbed if you want an early night. The rooms are absolutely fine and the bathrooom and shower great. The maids are very friendly and keep the whole place spotlessly clean. The staff, especially James and Mustafa, are the two front of house and are fantasic at their jobs, they kept us entertained the whole two weeks. All the staff work long hours and must be tired but still nothing is too much trouble for them. I left my heart with the briliant chef Ibo who is just the nicest and funniest company. We met numerous other wonderful guests too numerous to mention, we partied with them and have sworn to return for a reunion next year.
The Saray is situated just the perfect distance from the noisy nightlife in the centre of Hisaranu, we went bed and breakfast so as well as eating at the Hotel, which was great, we were able to try out the other many good restaurants. 'Shine' 'Castello' ' El Nino' being just a few. We also sampled the fish market in Fethiye, which was another brilliant night but far too much food. Everywhere all portions are large so 3 courses is never needed.
Getting around is never a problem, you just flag down a dolmus (small bus) anytime, they all display their destination on a board in the front windscreen and cost very little. They seem to be every 10 minutes or so and its very quick and easy to get either down into Olu Deniz where the beach and lagoon are or into Fethiye to the main shops, old town and harbour. We booked a 6 island boat trip with AliBaba for £10 each and what a brilliant day. Collected and delivered back to your Hotel on all trips, lunch included. I told them they could easily charge £15 per person with maybe special offers for families with kids. I don't know how they do it for such little cost. We also paid £16 for the most amazing jeep safari, again to include lunch, fantasic stops and mud bath all. Screamed with laughter all day using the water guns on each other. Cheers to the bunch from Stoke-on-Trent!!!
Nothing is as expensive as here in the uk and their is nothing you can't buy. If your luggage allowance is low then don't bother buying your toileteries until you get there.They sell most normal wellknown makes at a slightly higher price so just buy their local brands, which are fine.
Overall my holiday was one of the best I ever had and there have been a few. I would definitely return to Turkey, definitely to the same area and definitely to the Saray. PLEASE DONT CHANGE THE STAFF!!!
