“Great value hotel in awesome location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Stayed here for three weeks on my most recent kitesurfing trip to Gokova. The room was clean and modern with AC, Wifi and a decent shower. The breakfast is a classic Turkish breakfast with fruit, bread and eggs which you have at the cafe outside. The location is ideal, right in the middle of town so less than 50 metres to pubs or restaurants. The owners are really friendly and speak good english. Very good value for money, would definitely recommend.

Decided to go over to Turkey for a few days as we had been on Rhodes Island for 6 weeks and thought we would hire a car to visit Ephesus in Turkey. We hired a car from lovely people in Marmaris called" TRIP" (I think). Asked where we could stay en-route for the night and the lady said that even though Gokava was very near Marmaris, it was a lovely place to stay.

We eventually found Gokava and what a gem - it is absolutely beautiful. My husband and I live in Rhodes for part of the year and all I can say is I wish the Greeks built roads like the Turks! What an absolute joy driving there.

Anyway, after some deliberation we stayed at Hotel Caretta, To be honest, we were surprised how reasonable it was, The girl agreed a price of about £40 for the night - Cheap or what?

The rooms was lovely and modern and very, very clean, spotless in fact. It all looked new. The shower was great. I didn't want to leave the next morning - breakfast was great too. Home-made preserves and the usual continental fare. I would go back tomorrow if I could - in fact have told other half we are doing the same next year and will explore even more of Turkey and Gokava will definitely be on the itinerary.

There were loads of restaurants to choose from for evening meals and again very reasonably priced.

As a dog lover, I was pleased to see the stray dogs had tagged ears and seemed well cared for (again, not the same in Greece unfortunately)!!

One little niggle and it is very little. Quite noisy in the morning as you are right in the heart of Gokava.

All in all fabulous place and lovely little hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights while on a weeks holiday at our apartment in Dalaman.. The rooms are very clean and modern,and are in the centre of Akyaka and a short walk to the lovely beach.

We were there at the start of the season and the only thing We felt was that there was a lack of ventilation and nothing felt dry even the bed! but saying that I am sure when it gets hotter and the doors and windows are open it will be better. The Hotel is on the main street and therefore it might be a little noisy in high season, but this would not stop us staying here again and lovely Akyaka ...

Room Tip: We were at the front of the hotel with big balcony, make sure you ask for a balcony as the first roo...

My girlfriend and I stayed at Caretta hotel for 2 weeks while kitesurfing. We found it super friendly and very clean! The owners are very knowledgable about the area and were always willing to help. We would definitely come back here.
