“Wonderful place!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Yonca (yon-ja) Lodge is a beautiful place to stay and spend your honeymoon. Quiet, calm, scenic and beautiful. We had a great time there and would recommend it to anyone who wants to go there for honeymoon. Daniella was extremely kind and helpful!

Room Tip: standard rooms are better and have more space. Attics are good too but they are relatively smaller.

Yonca Lodge is a place I would highly recommend to anyone anytime. It's a treat to have breakfast right beside the sea, to enjoy the environment-friendly set-up with chickens running freely and lemons dripping from the trees, to eat jams that are home-made from organic products grown by Yonca Lodge itself and drink fresh cow's milk. The sunset is awesome to watch, and at night when the moon is out it casts its mesmerising light on the waves.

The staff are friendly and helpful. The room rates are reasonable. The cleaning service is first-rate. The decor of the rooms is simple but cosy. There is greenery all around, with lots of fruit trees. And much serenity and tranquility. On the whole, it is the atmosphere of the entire place that makes it such a lovely resort.

A couple of downside points -- 1) There are too many mosquitoes around and that mars the enjoyment of sitting on the beach at night, as well as prevents guests from opening their room windows except for those protected by mosquito netting. 2) Yonca Lodge is located about 15 kilometres from Fethiye, which makes it rather inconvenient to go to town. However, if your intention is to stay on the resort away from the outside world, you can't find a better place for relaxing.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that directly faces the sea.

Yonca was way beyond our expectations ! The rooms were clean & comfortable (not luxury) but the entire property is amazing, specially its breakfast on the beach. I would wait for morning to sit on the breakfast table few feet away from the water…Loved the 'farm' feeling being surrounded by lemon trees, avocado trees, naar trees, figs, and even a small vegetable patch…staff is friendly and helpful, its a bit far from the city but we had our own hired car so that wasn't a problem. Its a must for families.

We were a party of 8 and we stayed at Yonca Lodge for 4 nights. We were all totally thrilled to be there. Truly I don't even know where to start. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless and spacious. The grounds were filled with natural beauty, fruit trees, veggie garden, and many farm animals everywhere. The breakfast buffet was exceptional. Several of us are vegetarian and several meat eaters and we all loved the food -- lunch and dinner too. It was not only as fresh as it could be (taken from the garden, picked from a tree, and prepared well) but it was obviously made with love which is the secret ingredient missing in so many places. The location of the Lodge right on the water was amazing too. The bus to Fethiye was inexpensive and came often and was easy to catch from Yonca. If you have the chance, I would strongly recommend you stay at Yonca Lodge! Make sure to try the Rose Preserves!

Simply amazing! One of the best places we have ever stayed. Location is great with the beach being the dining room, room was great, but more than anything all the staff was really going out of their way to make our stay as perfect as possible. Special thanks to Daniela and all of them!

This was a standout from our two weeks travelling in Turkey. It's a really nice, laid back atmosphere, the natural grounds are beautiful, with fruit trees and gardens, and we loved the chickens running everywhere, the creek with ducks and turtles. The breakfast buffet was my favorite in all of Turkey - a really nice selection with products from their gardens. (Dinner was just okay in comparison). Can't say enough about the manager, Daniella, who was very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean. We found found it hard to leave the loungers on the beach along this scenic stretch of coast that are perfect for kicking back, relaxing and reading. The only slight downer is the mega restort next store with disco late into the night, but this didn't dampen enthusiasm for Yonca - we immediately wanted to return after we left.

We received a warm welcome at Yonca Lodge, a truely stunning location, set right on the beach with the view of the mountains. We stayed for seven nights in one of the standard rooms. Very charming and spacious with two balconies. Daniella has a wealth of knowledge about this place and the areas around. She will show you around this beautiful retreat with it's grapevines, amazing fruit trees, chickens and geese roaming happily, There's a river to the side with ducks, turtles and king fishers. As you walk through these well kept gardens you will see the relaxing sun beds, romantic lounging areas, hammocks and a lovely inviting pool area. Homemade freshly cooked food - cherry, rose, bergermot jams.. afternoon tea with cakes and pastries, a lovely touch... Soups, starters, main courses and deserts - just delicious! It was so nice to meet the family, they genuinely work hard and have maintained a safe, naturally beautiful and magical retreat. We just loved it at Yonca Lodge and didn't want to leave but if you do want to venture out and about, there's a regular Dolmus service and we found it very easy to go into Fethiyre to see the sights, or for the markets, the old town etc. The weather was glorious!

Room Tip: All rooms look great! Upgrade to a superior room for a treat!
