Found easily enough, the hotel is in a lovely location in Fethiye--but the "lobby" is somewhat strange, as it is adjacent the kitchen of a restaurant on one side, and a corridor leading to an outdoor recreation business on the other.
We initially were put into a room that faced the back (and was close to the garbage), so the stench was very unpleasant. Additionally, the room smelled like it had been smoked in (we had been assured we were given a non-smoking room as we had requested), and there was definitely something unpleasant about this room. There was only one electrical plug-in we found, so charging two phones at the same time wasn't going to happen. Also, there was a 1 cm gap under the door, so mosquitoes and other bugs entering the room were only hindered by putting a rolled-up towel on the floor in front of the door.
We attempted to talk with the manager/desk personnel to request a different room for out entire stay, but they were unable to change our room for the first night. We endured it, and the next morning were moved across the hall to a different room that faced the water. Thank goodness. Not certain we could have dealt with the first room more than one night.
The across-the-hall room was better--there was no foul smell when the door to the balcony was opened; the view of the seaside was beautiful. It was a lot of fun watching the crowds on the "boardwalk" in the evenings. No need to go out for entertainment when it paraded in front of you every evening!
The bathroom was the "all-in-one" with the shower not separated by a partition. In other words, everything gets wet when you take a shower!
Breakfast was included in the price of the room, but it wasn't served until 0830, which could put a crimp in one's travel plans if they intended to get an early start for the day. As for the quality of the breakfast, it was OK. Have had better, have had worse. The kahvalti plate included a boiled egg, sliced meat, slices of cheese, several types of preserves, bread and the ubiquitous cucumbers and tomatoes. Chai was included for a small price, as was water.
