Bambu Apartments
Ranked #30 of 137 Speciality Lodging in Fethiye
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We have shortly returned from two weeks at Bambu apartments staying the last 2 weeks in July. The apartments are lovely are spacious, clean, well equipped and comfortable, the air conditioning was much needed and cooled everywhere down really quickly. The pool area is lovely and clean and was never too busy. There are more than enough sunbeds and loungers for everyone staying in the apartments so there was no need to reserve one!! Ann and Gary met us on the first night and also bid us friendly farewell and gave us some local information about good places to eat and shop etc.
Ann and Gary gave my daughters a scuba diving lesson in the pool and they loved it and felt really confident afterwards - was well worth the money. Ann and Gary also arranged a boat trip which all of the guests at the apartment went on - this was fab. The boat was plenty big enough for everyone with lots of indoor and outdoor space, we had lots of nice long stops for swimming and snorkelling and the food was brilliant with lots of choice (much better than boat trips we had been on previously) and really cheap as well. The apartments are ideally situated for getting into Calis - a short 5 min walk and you are on the promenade. Calis is a lovely resort and all the locals were really friendly. Had a brilliant holiday and will probably be back again!!

Just back from a 10 day holiday at Bambu. Third time we've stayed there and it never disappoints. Ann and Gary are lovely people who go the extra mile to make sure your holiday runs smoothly. The accomodation is clean, spacious and well furnished, the pool is great and there are plenty of sunbeds so no need to towel drop at 6am! The beach is a short walk away as are the shops and restaurants.
Cannot recommend Bambu highly enough, 10 out of 10 every time.

My partner, my daughter, her boyfriend and i spent two fantastic weeks with Ann and Gary in the first two weeks of July. They arranged transfers both ways at a very reasonable cost, welcomed us on arrival and wished us a very friendly farewell. The accommodation is spacious, well furnished and equipped and very clean inside and out. The pool could not be better managed and maintained. The tyranny of towel reservations has no writ in this friendly joint and, in any case, there are far more sun beds available than needed as well as outside sofas and a shaded outside lounge area. . Gary and Ann are the perfect hosts somehow knowing exactly how much contact a guest wants. There is no bar or restaurant on site but there is a BIM supermarket less than three minutes walk away if you forgot to stock up your full sized fridge. We were in apartment 1 on the ground floor and also had a full sized washing machine, gas hob, kettle, toaster and plenty of cooking, drinking and dining equipment. Other apartments have microwaves, TVs etc. Air con, fast and reliable WiFi inside and out, a safe and a communal chilled water dispenser on the pool lever were generously provided at no additional cost. Gary and Ann are qualified diving instructors and were able to organise scuba induction sessions for residents in the pool. There was a lovely breeze from the coastal bird sanctuary across the road throughout our visit. Calis centre and promenade are 7-10 minutes walk away and the water park less than 5. In over 20 years visiting, I have never had poor accommodation in Calis but Bambu Apartments are without doubt the best by a long mark. I will definitely return.

Just arrived back home from our second stay in the Bambu apartments, had a wonderful time again. Lovely location and pool. Extremely good apartment. It was made very special because my 11 year old granddaughter was taught to scuba dive by the fantastic Ann Gabbage and Garry Gabbage. Thanks for letting us join the night boat trip.
Looking forward to going back in September

Bambu Apartments are just 5 mins walk from Calis Beach. Ann and Gary who run the apartments and friendly and welcoming and their knowledge of the local area and Turkish customs are invaluable.

My friend and I stayed in apartment 5 which is at the top and has the most beautiful views not only in the morning but of the amazing sunsets. The apartments are furnished and decorated to a high standard and the kitchen was well equipped with various pots and pans, a large fridge, gas hobs and a combi oven. There was an abundance of crockery and cutlery. The beds are really comfortable and it was nice to have proper bedding. There was also a tv, dvd player and a safe. The bathroom is large with a toilet, sink and shower. There is plenty of storage room throughout the apartment.

The pool area was always clean with lots of sun beds and sofas and there is a lovely shaded area with sofas and a 'bed which is perfect for those extra hot days.

Calis is a lovely little town with a great choice of restaurants along the seafront, there are also plenty of shops and more restaurants and bars just off the sea front. There is a large supermarket close by but also 3 in Calis itself. There is something for everyone.

I could not highly enough recommend Bambu Apartments as the best place to stay in Calis Beach!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a sea view for your private view of the stunning sun sets

The only place we have ever stayed where there are plenty of sunbeds for all guests to enjoy, towel reservations are not required!

We booked our stay at Bambu by reading Trip Advisor reports. We have been to several resorts in Turkey and have enjoyed them all. However Bambu will remain as a favourite for lots of reasons.

The owners Ann and Gary are fantastic. Ann arranged our airport pick up which was cheap and very pleasant and I would recommend this service to anyone.

The apartments are in a great location in Calis, nice and quiet but walking distance to shops, beach water taxi and the main tourist stretch. The Dolmus and public bus run from 1 road away which makes transport to Fethiye and beyond very easy.

The block has a lovely pool which was 30 deg during our stay at the end of August. A great touch was the free water cooler which is kept in the lobby and helped us to keep our cool.

Bambu is well kept, clean, great value and above all feels like home as soon as you get there. One air con unit in the living area managed to cool off the 2 bedrooms, a simple gas ring, fridge and multi function microwave alow you to cook if you want to.

We cant speak highly enough of both Ann and Gary 2 very friendly people who have all the time in the world to help make your holiday fantastic. A real bonus is they live on site so any problems can be sorted out straight away.

A great value and a fantastic relaxing break thank you Ann and Gary so much!

Our third year to bambu apartments, Ann & Gary make you very welcome. Nothing is too much trouble. Apartments are in a very convenient position for travel to Fethiye and surrounding area by dolmus. Very quiet area of Calis Beach.
