On arrival we received a warm welcome from the owner and also Naomi an English receiptionist/waitress working at Villa Onemli at the time. This was a last minute booking made 10 days previously and our reservation was for a garden view room. However, after a few minutes chat in Turkish between the two of them, Naomi showed us to a 1st floor partial seaview room with no balcony. We accepted the situation, but after 10 minutes Naomi was back and swapped us into a better, brighter room next door, with balcony and better seaview, a nice bonus, plus there was air-conditioning in the room too!
This hotel is probably best suited to those looking for a quite holiday.There are a few steps up to the front door and a flight of marble steps leading to the first floor, but the staff are usually on hand to help with any heavy luggage. The hotel location is excellent, being very close to the small, clean beach and large longer beach nearby and the ruins of Side are only a few minutes walk away. Surprisingly, even though the town with its many restaurants, bars & shops is close, this hotel is a very quiet, peaceful place to stay.
Villa Onemili serve a good Turkish continental breakfast, which you can help yourself to as much as you like...including.very sweet tomatoes, cucumbers & green chillies all home grown!
The room was cleaned & tidied daily, although bed linen and towels are only changed once a week, unless you request more and the shower was difficult to regulate between very hot, or cold, but this is usually par for the course in Turkey and didn't spoil our holiday.
There is a choice of other small hotels nearby, but given its convenient location to the beach & all local amenities, if we returned to Side, we would probably stay there again.
