“Fabulous place to stay !!”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Yonca Lodge for two weeks staying in one of their superior rooms.
It was dark when we arrived so our first impression was the sound of the sea and the croaking of the frogs .
Sunrise brought with it the true beauty of the place. Gorgeous well kept gardens, fruit trees, vines, hens , ducks, geese and their chicks wandering about the place. Small river running alongside , scenic views from the beach. What a place!
Our room was very comfortable with high ceilings and plenty of space. It was nicely furnished. Fridge with mini bar , complimentary teas and coffee making facilities and bottle of water (left every day). The bed was extremely comfortable with good pillows and linen. Plenty of storage space for everything. We had our own veranda with large cushioned daybed, 2 deckchairs and small table.
Bathroom was decent size with bath and overhead shower, complimentary toiletries and soft snow white towels.
Breakfast was great. So fresh and plenty of choice. Delicious homemade jams, cereals, yogurt, breads, dried fruits and nuts, various cheeses, fresh fruits, olives, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers and more besides. Herbal teas , fresh coffee and fruit juice. Delicious.
The pool was cleaned daily and had small children's area. Plenty of sunbeds and towels were provided.
Scenic views from beach, plenty of loungers and plenty of space. If you needed to cool off there were shady platforms and olive trees also offered shade. Scattered about were hammocks too.
Throughout the day you could order snacks and light meals at reasonable prices . I loved the homemade lemonade and became quite addicted to it !!
It is located a bit out of the way but personally that was what we wanted. There's a dolmus that runs frequently into Fethiye from 8 a.m til late. A bargain at only 5tl each way per person. It's about a 35 minute ride.
Last but not least the staff are all lovely and kind. Must mention Danielle who was most helpful and who would go out of her way to help. Buket, whose beautiful smile greeted us each morning at breakfast and when you brought our lemonade down the beach ☺ Big thank you too to Hava, Makbule and Leyla who work so hard to keep the rooms spotlessly clean.
We would recommend Yonca to all who would love a relaxing place to stay.
We loved it... Thank you all.x

Yonca Lodge is a very unique hotel in Yaniklar Fethiye. It has a surrounding garden, located by the sea and river. There are all kinds of trees and animals around. There are baskets in rooms to collect fruit and vegetables from the garden. They serve spectacular food. All organic and fresh. For dinner the serve loads of food for 50 TL per person. You should definitely try and taste the freshness of them. Only comment I would say is be prepared for the mosquito as it is located by a river. Would recommend this hotel to everyone for romance and families to show their children all kinds of animals around.

We booked Yonca lodge off the back off all the positive tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. My fiancée and I were after an affordable, relaxing beach holiday not at a resort, which is pretty hard to come by but this Yonca is perfect.

The rooms are spacious and homely and stay cool enough without aircon (although there is a unit in the room). The gardens full of fruit trees, hens and ducks are lovely to have on your doorstep and the beech area is incredible. The highlight for us will always be sitting in the dining area at sunset with a glass of nice wine waiting for our dinner.

There are some comments about noise from nearby resorts on other tripadvisor reviews, we found this pretty intermittent and barely audible from the beech due to the sound of the waves.

The food at yonca is lovely, all fresh and locally sourced, we found the small set menu in the evening ample and enjoyed the surprise of what it might be every evening.

Every single member if staff was welcoming and hard working especially Daniella who goes the extra mile for all of her guests.

We would recommend this to any individual or couple who needs a relaxing and recharging holiday, we can't wait to go back :)

Room Tip: Our room (101) was great, as you spend so little On my way! In the room I opulent worry about being...

We decided to give Yonca lodge a go and we weren't disappointed. The place is located about 20 Km outside of Fethiye and is easy reached by the local bus which is cheap and they run until late at night. Said that, it was still too far for me as I like to be in the middle of, restaurants, bars, shops etc.
The lodge is very nice & clean with large grounds where chickens wander around. The breakfast was also very nice but mainly for vegetarians which was fine by us - very fresh food. We can't comment on drinks & dinner as we didn't eat here for that.
We had one of the top room in the lodge with sloping ceilings - not good for taller people as I kept banging me head constantly.
Now to the noise from the large hotel next door which I think is catered to Russians - it seems they have parties every night for their guests. I'm half deaf so it wasn't a problem for me but my partner could here it.
I have read a few reviews here regarding the staff - we both found them very nice especially Daniella who went out of her way to make sure we had a nice stay.
If you like a place that is a bit different I'll definitely stay at Yonca Lodge and we would stay here again if it was closer to Fethiye.
Great place - thank you.

I can't add much that hasn't been said before. This is a gem. The rooms are unfussy and functional rather than opulent, but they are perfectly comfortable, spacious and spotless. The environment is gorgeous. It is great to have grass areas as well as sand, and the chickens scratching around are endlessly fascinating, with their own distinct characters. Breakfast and dinner with tables by the sea is just as special as it sounds, the food is authentic, fresh and delicious - and the staff are charming. We spent three nights here at the beginning of a two-week holiday, and would have liked to have spent more.

This was our second visit to Younca and I remain convinced this is heaven, the sun, sand and the sea, the company and the food along with service level that is bordering upon family is just divine.

Don't tell everyone only special people I want to go back and there has to be availability!

Yonca Lodge is a small hotel with 14 rooms in the village Yaniklar which is in Fethiye , Mugla. Yonca Lodge is an ideal place of refreshing with spring just like nature, running off the depressed hot and crowd in summer, relaxing yourself in a calm and peaceful garden, enjoying autumn, feeling the soft weather of mediterranean. At the center of the Mediterranean's most beautiful islands and coves, located in a lovely garden within various fruit trees and flowers. There is an endemic Sweetgum tree (Liquidambar orientalis) forest on one side of the simply furnished rooms and on the other side there is a stream full of ducks and a lot of species. The restaurant next to the beach and mansions around attracts people who want to listen to the sounds of waves and birds. Desire of reading book will be much more on the hammocks at trees. ... more   less
