We travelled with Exclusive Escapes who were efficient and helpful from start to finish (normally we are 'independant' travellers but their website won us over)!
We spent nine days at this wonderful small hotel, staying in the Pool Suite which was simply beautiful with a very large private outside terrace and a delightful abundance of birds, lizards, amazing plants and trees.
The hotel is managed by Mustafa who is so lovely, I cannot find words to praise him highly enough (I hope his boss knows how lucky he is to have him)! We were spoiled rotten with his amazing cocktails and he prepared fresh herbs to help me with a couple of UK bugs I was getting over - in no time I was fixed without medicine!
We did the trip to the private Island for dinner and spent a wonderful evening with three truly lovely couples and all agreed the experience was very special indeed. Even just the short boat trip to and from the Island was lovely, laying on the boat deck with great company and star gazing. Ok, the market is nothing great (apart from the wonderful food stalls which are frustrating making you wish you lived there)! - a good suggestion would be to use the short time before going to the Island to go and see the lovely old town instead!
Town - We did not find the resort of Oludeniz so terrible as some people have stated - the evening noise that you do hear at the hotel is not painfully intrusive and we commented that at night the town itself was clean, fun, happy and far from being rowdy or nasty. Certainly it is very English and we visited only really for a few supplies and one fun evening out but it was perfectly pleasant and we did not witness any 'bad' English behaviour!
Rooms etc - We were lucky to see several of the rooms from inside and all are beautiful. Our bathroom was divine with a very powerful shower (both fixed head and hand-held), and the cleaning of the rooms was very good too. The owner of this property has beautifully combined modern amenities wih stunning use of natural materials - all interwoven around the natural setting that the hotel enjoys.
Food - Wonderful from start to finish. A super contemporary all day menu of all you could want. Dinners were taken on the beautiful outdoor terrace and the Chef and his team are very skilled. Mostly seafood but always a choice and always very varied.
I've already written too much but just to add that I am one of life's fussier travellers - normally Four Seasons etc. I can't help but notice failings (it's my job), however, here you will be delighted. A unique small gem with a wonderful staff.
