“Fab holiday great location lovely staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Telmesoss last September and had a great time. The hotel is basic but for the price it was nice, the bar staff were really nice the location was fab just a 5 min walk down the hill you where on the strip by Talk of the Town and there is something for everyone. Looking forward to going back in May for another great holiday.

We have been staying at this hotel for the past 9 years and at this time of year I start counting down the weeks till end of May when we can get back out there. I properly get confused by people after reading some of the reviews. I know not everyone likes the same things and holiday hotels are no exception.The music is only as loud as people like. We often have a room in A block facing the bar and have yet to have a disturbed sleep.
The owners of the hotel Selcuk and Zafir are great. Approachable and very hands on.
I do think some people should look to their own attitudes before making nasty comments.....Simon m must have known what to expect if he had been going there for the last
15 years. Gino who was back last year so much better than Cameron who was there for 3 years before that.
If you want a fun holiday without much stress this is a great place to go. If you want 5* go somewhere else....easy

Room Tip: Family rooms in B block are brill

i have been visiting the area for over 15 years and at one time was the greatest friendliest places i had been,how times have changed....... i have realised that if you are female with big boobs the bar staff cant do enough for you, if you are spending lots of money, the hotel management cant do enough to keep you happy if you are not fitting into either of the above then you do not exist. shabby rooms, very noisy, very angry, aggresive manager. 5 years ago it was great, not anymore. look eleswhere to get the best from this beautiful country

Me and my boyfriend stayed here in early October 2011.
Originally booked in for the Marcan, (prenonced 'Marjan') the hotel's sister across the road. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to find we were booked in for the slightly better looking Telmessos.

We had been recommended this hotel and location by friends and so we knew to expect a very good, cheap, clean no thrills hotel for the money you pay and we weren't disappointed.

The hotel sits at the top of a steep hill so therefore I wouldn't recommend this hotel for older people or people with mobility issues. Aside from that, the location couldn't be better. Less than a five minute walk away is the main road of Hisaronu, where you will find an array of restaurants to keep you satisfied for very good prices. (We ate like kings everyday on a low budget) On the main road there's a regular bus service that takes you into Fethiye, and Olu Deniz.

Positives- Staff are helpful and friendly, especially the cleaning and bar staff. Beautifully, well maintained hotel. Food is of a good standard, keep in mind breakfast is basic as is expected with Turkish Breakfasts. Excellent location. The hotel dog, Deco :)

Negatives - the bars do stay open to the early hours, but apart from one occasion they turned the music down as it got later. However we didn't pay for air con as it is extra so our balcony door and windows were kept open and we could still hear it. Didn't keep us up though the heat did!

Would deffo go again, lovely place, would reccomend to anyone.

What a fantastic Hotel :)
Myself & my partner would defiantly return to this Hotel, We had an Amazing time here. The location of the hotel from the Main Street is literally 5 Minutes away from the hotel, so if you don’t like or Cannot walk too far, This hotel is perfect!
The Turkish BBQ Night around the pool area was so good, The atmosphere was brilliant!
The Bar staff are really friendly & help you with anything.
The Pool is quite a decent size & there are plenty of sun loungers to pick from.
Also the Wildlife is great, We saw Hogs, Turtles & Plenty of Lizards & Birds. Beautiful Creatures.

The only problem we had was the Cleaners didn’t clean our room for two days, but we told the guys at the Reception & it got cleaned that day :)

People on here always complain about how loud the Music is, Its a Holiday resort of course there is going to be music until late, Don’t fault it on the music!

And last but not least, The View! Well what a view we had overlooking the Main Street & all the Mountains! :) This was especially nice when we had the Hotels Photographer snap some shots of us.. They came out Beautiful!

Overall - FANTASTIC!! Would Defiantly return..

Hi everyone,

Firstly I would like to start by saying, like most of you, I read through a lot of reviews before going on holiday. It's helpful to get other people's opinions on where you're about to be staying for the next week or two. We read some great reviews and a lot of not so good reviews. And of course, its the bad ones that stick in your head.

I am 24 and I went on holiday with my girlfriend to this hotel. We were nervous to say the least. On arrival we went to reception, filled in a form and a nice guy took our bags to our room. Good start! We went out for a few drinks and came back to the hotel to.... SILENCE! We expected there to be a party with loud music blaring (which we wouldn't have really minded because we are young after all) until 3am. This was not the case. We had a great sleep.

We woke up the next day and went to the pool which is brilliant btw. It's clean and full of laughter. The bar serves up a decent lunch menu and drinks. We got a sun lounger pretty easily and lay back and listened to the bar music which featured a lot of UB40 and Queen. Result! Queen are my favourite band of all time!

Anyway, to cut a long story short. We loved this hotel. The staff could not do enough for you. I mean, these guys work their as* off. They work from the moment the pool opens right up until the bar closes. I couldn't speak highly enough of them. There isn't this rediculously loud music playing till 3am either.

The rooms were clean and big enough. You did have to put your key in to reception if you wanted your room cleaned BUT that didn't really matter. You were out by the pool most of the day anyway.

The only thing we disliked about coming to Hisaronu was the traders on the main strip. They just don't leave you alone. But to be honest, we should have expected that anyway. We were in a holiday resort and they have to make a living. We did manage to work out that if you walk on the middle of the road, you wouldn't get hassled so much. The road gets closed to traffic at night.

I would recommend going to a bar called Tropical Karaoke Bar at the bottom of the road from the hotel. It is a great place to go whether you are with family, friends or your partner. It really is for everyone and what's more, Efes lager is only 4TL! They also do buy one cocktail and get another one free for 10TL. The staff here are great aswell. They want people to have a great time so I would encourage you to let your hair down here.

There are so many places to eat in Hisaronu. You could stuff your face for as little as £6! I would recommend going to Shine. It's an indian restaurant, again, down the road from the hotel. The food was delicious! We did use the hotel restaurant once. It was nice enough but we prefered to eat outside and try different places.

So to sum up. The best advice i'd give is to look at everyone's reviews because everyone does have different experiences. However, some people do expect too much when they travel to hotels especially hotels with low ratings. Your holiday is what you make it. You can pick up on little things and let it ruin your holiday or like me, be more open minded and enjoy your holiday and make it as fun as you can. I personally think 2 stars for this hotel does the hotel and their staff an injustice. They are a great bunch of people and try to make your holiday experience the best it can be.

As for the resort itself and local people? An absolute pleasure to be around!

I hope this helps anyone who was worried or undecided.

Cheers!

this hotel is lovely, but my god how loud do they have to play the music every night until 3am, we unfortunately had a poolside room, big mistake! apart from that the pool is lovely, we always got a sun lounger but we did see people putting towels on beds and then disappearing, there is also a little click going on with older people that have obviously been going to this hotel for years and think they own it, every day we had this horrible old guy jump right into the pool as we were sunbathing and splashed us, but when his 'friends' were sitting in the spot we were he gently slid into the pool, what an old fool, strutted around like he thought he was 21, must have been 70+. i dont know if i would go back to this hotel because of that but the views around this area were unbelieveable, mountains all around the hotel. breakfast was typical turkish food, olives, cheese, meat, water melon, cereal, yoghurt and bread and jams, also boiled eggs on some days. very nice spread. we took water to our rooms and juice etc and we were never stopped and searched, but possible would be in high season, we went on 30th august for a week. short walk into town and all the shops and bars are there, if you want any trips go and see alibaba, hes such a nice guy and gave us very good deals, the safari trip is a must do if you dont mind water fights (take a water gun or you will be lost) included in that is a trip to the gorge, the mud baths and the ruins, it cost about £12 each, very long day in a jeep and very tired at the end of the day, but the drivers tirelessly kept joking after a good 12 hour day, then they wash all the jeeps at a stop off at a cafe on the way home, then start all over again at 8am the next day. the boat trip was good but they tell you the max on board would be 49 people, there were more like 80 on ours and if you want to sunbathe on the top deck its a little crowded, check how many will be on your boat before you book. paragliding is very scary but unbelieveable when you are in the sky, quadbiking was excellent, that was the most expensive trip, it was £18. you would be better taking english pounds with you as you get a better deal when booking trips and the rate to change them over while there was 2.75tl, so very good rate too.

Room Tip: if you like loud music, then get a poolside room
