With an extended pool and a complete makeover this hotel has improved out of all recognition. I loved it before for its friendly staff, great food and scrupulously clean rooms but now the standard of accomodation is brilliant. The rooms are all fresh and clean with new fitted wardrobes and lots and lots of drawer space. The balcony space has been extended and new windows and doors have all been fitted - they have done a great job but I'm glad that Leyla (the owner) kept the window seats in the old block one as I enjoy relaxing there with my book. I had a guided tour round the new block and wow those bathrooms would not look out of place in a 5 star hotel! The family rooms are in fact two large rooms connecting so that parents and children have separate sleeping areas - they looked very comfortable.

Halil, the waiter, was very helpful. There is a new chef and the food is excellent. We were half board and I cleared my plate most nights, only failing to do so when there was too much food! The cleaners are lovely and they took real pride in their new pink uniforms. I really like the fact that Leyla insists her staff are friendly but that they don't flirt or hassle the customers. This makes for a very relaxing and comfortable atmosphere.

This hotel is ideal for adults who want to be away from the bustling centre of Hisaronu. The village is only a 10 minute domus ride (or half hour walk) away and its just a 15 minute trip in the dolmus to Olu Deniz one way or Fethiye the other so its in a great location.

After reading a few patchy reviews on trip advisor, we were a bit concerned about our stay at Leytur. From the moment we arrived, we realised our concerns flew out the window. We had a wonderfully relaxing week here, and were very sad to leave.
Leyla, the owner is a lovely woman who is full of local knowledge, and really knows how to look after her guests. The recently refurbished pool is MASSIVE and beautiful. Rooms are cleaned each morning, and are fresh, airy and comfortable. The location is out of the revolting tackiness of Hisaranou (one of the main reasons that we chose this hotel), and it is extremely peaceful and relaxing, with gorgeous mountains as a backdrop.
I thoroughly recommend this hotel, and plan to go back again.

General
Just returned to rainy Britain, after a fantastic weeks stay at the Leytur Hotel. We are already planning a return some time in mid-September… need I say anymore…

A very relaxing holiday, in a great location for a good price… we have some very happy memories from this holiday, which will always make it special for us.

Location
The hotel is tucked away on the northern fringes of Ovacik, at the base of the surrounding mountains. It is quiet in the day (no music/noise spilling over from nearby hotels) The nearest hotel is approx 100 metres up the road, but is separated from the pool area of the Leytur by the attractively designed accommodation buildings that all over-look the pool.

The main road through the village is 100 metres away from the hotel, where a bus (dolmus) runs approx every 10 minutes. These mini-buses are privately owned (usually by the driver) and tend to have fixed rates for various popular journeys. From Ovacik heading south, you are 10 mins away from Hisaronu (many bars, restaurants, clubs etc) and a further 10 mins away is the beach resort of Olu Deniz (again, many bars, restaurants, clubs etc). Ovacik to Hisaronu = 1.75 L (80 pence)…. Ovacik to Olu Deniz = 2.25 L (£1)….

Unless you are staying in a hotel a few hundred metres away from the beach in Olu Deniz, then you will tend to need a bus to get anywhere… so why not have a location away from the busy bars etc such as the Leytur.

Rooms
The rooms are spotless… they were completely redone over the winter of 2009-2010 in one of the buildings… the other building has been re-built !! Rooms are a mix of twins and doubles… beware of the beds… some of them squeak like hell !!

Food/Drink in hotel
Breakfast is a help-yourself buffet, in true Turkish style….boiled eggs, fresh bread, cucumber, toms, feta & white cheese, olives, yogurt and honey, tea and coffee.

Didn’t ever eat lunch, but talking to many other guests, it seems very good.

Evening menu is fantastic food… and priced about the same as many of the restaurants that you’ll find in the nearby towns of Hisaronu and Olu Deniz. A main meal is an average of 20 turkist lira, (approx 2.2 lire = £1.00), so about £9 for a lovely meal. Starters are about £3-5.

A large beer is 4 lira, but spirits are more extensive. Imported drink tends to cost a lot to import, so this is reflected in the selling price. About 8 lire for a Captain Morgan/coke…

Service/Welcome/Facilities
Many of the guests return year-after-year, so this is a really good indicator of the service and welcome that you get. As first-timers, we were no exception. We were made to feel very welcome and did not feel as though we were looked upon as just ‘one-time-only’ visitors. The hotel was far from fully booked… mayby 10 rooms occupied out of the 60 rooms available, so I am sure it gets very busy in the months of July and August. However, talking to the owner/manager Leyla, she staffs up to look after the demand, and I am sure the service would be as good as the quiet times.

The pool area is lovely, not shadowed by the buildings so the sun hits pool area from about 8am right until the suns goes down behind the smaller mountains to the west at around 8pm… so you’re able to frazzle all day long !!

Holiday Price
We arranged our holiday through Holiday Mate, who happen to have their HQ in Hisaronu, although they are a UK company. Each element of the holiday was priced separately, with the baggage and transfers being an additional cost above the advertised price… so all in, we managed to get the entire holiday for approx £240 each (flights, baggage allowance, transfers and accommodation on a bed & breakfast basis)

Eating out in local area
There are many restaurants and bars away from the hotel, but many of the guests had evening dinner in the hotel. In Hisaronu and Olu Deniz, main meals ranged from 15 L (Pizza/pasta) to about 25 L for a T-bone steak. A bottle of wine was about 20 L and drinks were just about the same wherever you went… some of the beach-front bars in Olu Deniz charged more due to their location.

The restaurants that were very busy and therefore probably very good food/price were The Bees Knees and the Ackiktim Del Boys (don’t be put off by the name… it seems most people could not remember the ‘Ackiktim’ name even though it sounds like ‘I kicked him’ !! So they added the Del Boys bit). We ate here many times. The food was stunning and a good price. Free oven-baked bread for starters, 2 mains and a bottle of wine, free tea/coffee/liqueur was about £28.

Great hotel, will be going back !! Thanks so much to Leyla and her staff for a great holiday.

We stayed at the Leytur for the third time this year, what a transformation! We knew Leyla was planning to update and refurbish the rooms but we did not know the extent of what she was planning. We arrived on 3rd May and it looked great the entrance had been changed and was much more imposing, the pool had been enlarged by 50% , one of the blocks of rooms had been demolished and completely rebuilt. All the rooms had been decorated and had new storage added, the curtains ans bedspreads now were co-ordinated, 20 more rooms are now available. The hotel is more modern and elegant than before but the service is just as good a ever, Leyla and her staff work really hard to make guests' holidays as happy as possible. We are back home now and carefully saving to go again next year.

We have just returned from our second year at the Leytur. We had a lovely holiday there last year, hence our return, and had an equally wonderful time this year. The refurbishment, which was completed over the winter period, is fantastic. The exterior and interior is amazing. On holiday we look for a comfortable environment, good company (we met old friends and made new ones), peace and quiet and good food. Although we did not eat in the hotel very often as we like to experience a variety of places. When we did eat at the hotel we were more than happy with the quality and service. Leyla, her husband and staff made our stay an enjoyable experience. The hotel is ideally placed for reaching Fethiye, Hisaronu and Olu Deniz. Also there are some wonderful walks available in the surrounding area.

I have literally just arrived back from the Leytur. What can I say...............amazing, just what we needed.

We booked this holiday through Holidaymate/Teletext the week before we travelled and the reason we chose the hotel was because of the very complimentary reviews we read. Our requirements were quiet with a pool and near to a town so we could eat out and have a wander at our leisure, this fitted the bill perfectly.

The rooms are basic, yet spacious with balconies overlooking the beautiful pool area. Air conditioning and safety deposit boxes are reasonabley priced in comparison to other countries I have been too and the maids cleaned the rooms every morning leaving them spotless. The only thing I would say is that a kettle in the room would have been useful.

Leyla - the owner is just lovely. She is always on hand during both the day and evening and remembered our names from day one. She clearly takes alot of pride in her business and sees many of her customers as dear friends (some of which have visited upto 17 times since 1995).

The dolmus service stops every five minutes outside the hotel and will take you into Fethiye or Hisaronu/Olu Deniz a a reasonable price.

We did venture out of the hotel to eat in the evenings however we ate twice there and the food was fantastic - steak roll was the best food i ate all holiday!!!!!!!!

This trip was simply perfect and we will be going back!
