We had a wonderful week at the Bahar from 18th to 25th. The staff were exceptional, all areas were really clean and well kept, service was wonderful at all times. Restaurant staff were delightful, and drinks were available from 11 to 11, no problem at all. Food was fine - salads great, and different food every day, not a great variety but enough and brilliant value for the price.

I couldn't praise this hotel enought, the staff joined in our fun and helped in every way to make out holiday perfect. I recommend it very highly and will definitely go again. All who stayed that week would love a Bahar Reunion!!!

Booked our last minute holiday to the Bahar Hotel the week before and got a great deal with Dealchecker. After reading the reviews on here we were a little dubious. However, we have just returned from a lovely holiday at this hotel.
Free air con, and wi fi, 3 cooked meals a day with afternoon tea, gin on tap, towels changed and room cleaned daily, friendly staff, beach a few steps away, all this for under £300 for the week, money well spent.

Just returned from this fab hotel after two weeks, still nursing the insect bites. Our room had a window overlooking the pool and the sea which was great as we could leave windows open to get a lovely through breeze so we did not use the free A C very much. Our room was kept clean with linen changed most days. The staff were very helpful and Badger and Fatima always had a welcoming smile when you went for a meal. The food had a variety of salads daily with a main meal, proving a bit basic but perfectly adequate for those who had no special dietry requirements. The barman was up for a laugh most of the time and with the long hours he worked we could accept the odd scowl. The nearby local restaurants served a lovely alternative on the odd evening to eat out and watch the amazing sunset.. We had great company both weeks and sampled the local karaoke bar Bus Stop several times. Recommend the Talk of the Town for a night out.which was really funny and value for money. Focus was good for booking trips and gave good value for money. Overall the Bahar Hotel is a great place to stay and Calis although quiet had always something to do and we will return for another holiday when we can.

Room Tip: Request pool view room.

My wife and I went to the Bahar hotel for our honeymoon after having the trip paid for by my mum. To be honest, we had seen the Bahar in the listings when we planning the trip, and originally ignored it due to the fact it was rated 3 stars, however that was a big mistake! When we arrived, the reception guy was incredibly friendly and chatty, even though it was 5am and we were checked in and in our room in less than 5 mins. We were in room 204 which was overlooking the pool, as far as we could tell all rooms had a pool view apart from 2 on the ground floor ( Could be wrong on this though).

The food was always delicious and well cooked, although not much variety, but then what they had would usually appeal to most guests, ie usually "english" food with a turkish twist, and we found ourselves eating all our meals at the restaurant, which is by the pool, as is the bar. We never had reason to complain about the food at all and if there is something you don't like, there are plenty of restaurants along the sea front for you to choose from. The kitchen staff were always smiling and greeting you when you came for a meal, even breakfast. Unlike some all inclusives, there are no snacks for you to choose between meals, but there is a little market next to the hotel that sells all manner of crisps and chocolate for next to nothing. Although the bar is open from 11:00 to 23:00, you can get water and fruit juice 24 hours a day. When the bar is open, you get a good choice of spirits and soft drinks, and the local beer, Perge I think it was called.

The hotel is in an excellent location, and seems quiet and secluded when you laze around the pool, however 30 seconds walk from your room, out the back of the hotel, you get to the seafront and promenade, which is absolutely full of bars and restaurants, I can thoroughly recommend watching the sun set in a sofaboat in the Lighthouse cocktail bar, which is directly adjacent to the hotel, and going for a singalong in the Bus Stop Karaoke bar further up. There is a small shopping area in Calis Beach (where the hotel is actually located) but there are minibuses every few minutes to the centre of Fethiye, with a larger variety of shops.

The other thing that I commented to my wife about was the cleanliness of the place, the rooms and all communal areas where kept spotless, including the pool. I'm usually wary of outside pools, but this one was so inviting and clean I wanted to spend hours in there! The cleaning staff were always friendly and it was quite amusing to come back to your room and find out how your towels had been laid out, as it was a different pattern every day!

The hotel appears to be exclusively Olympic when it comes to package holidays, which is good because the rep attached to this hotel was Emre, and he was an absolutely fantastic rep, the kind of guy that you would happily socialise with if he wasn't so busy!

As other reviews have said, dont pay the cheap price and expect 5* accomodation on the cheap, however you do get a fantastic little, almost boutique, hotel with good food, friendly staff and good clean facilities, you even get free wifi and air conditioning whereas some places charge extra for these.

I think the most telling aspect of a review is whether you would go again, and recommend it to friends and family, to say we are planning to go back next year answers that question!

We had this booked for us as a suprise and flew out on the 4th July a couple of days after our wedding. To be honest if we booked ourselves we would have not even looked at this hotel but I am so glad we did.

On arrival we were met by our olympic rep (emre) who explained everything about the hotel on the transfer. we arrived at 5am on 5th of july and were given our room key and told the time of breakfast and what time the rep would be back for our welcome meeting.

we were told about the hotel and given the chance to book excursions. We booked the 12 island boat trip (highly recommened).

The hotel was not 5 star hotel but for the price you pay it was excellent, the staff couldn't have made us feel more welcome if they tried. All meal times were brilliant and although the salads weren't varied much daily the food was fantastic everyday, from curry to chicken nuggets it was very varried.

there were plenty of sun loungers with at least 15 spare a day which are located round the beautiful pool which is cleaned daily. the only downside to the pool is it closes at 7:30pm but in the hotels deffence people had consumed lots of alcohol by then so it wouldnt have been safe.

I have read reviews on here and noticed alot of people complaining about the barman. so let me put the story straight he gets to work just after 10am has a bite to eat for breakfast then starts work before hes supposed to he works solidly all day in the heat which for us was 40 degrees. the bar doesn't close till 11pm and he only gets a few breaks even after that he continues to work till around 12pm. Ofcourse he is going to be tired so thats a very unfair statement that he is grumpy. (In our case he got grumpy once and thats because at 10:50pm someone ordered 25 beers). we always found him pleasent, always said hello, always gave us smiles and never complained when our big group of friends ordered at least 20 drinks just before closing. he was brilliant.

the kitchen staff were great and so friendly (the man always shaking your hand every morning and asking how you were, and fatima always smiling)

to me this hotel had no faults they were brilliant and we are already saving for our next holiday to the bahar hotel.

we made great friends and had some great nights by the pool and the bar along the beach (the bus stop karaoke bar).

the 12 island boat trip is a must but please go with the reps as they are very entertaining. the islands are beautiful and you get to swim in the middle of the sea near some beautiful bays.

olympic reps bilgin and emre you are both brilliant keep up the good work :) we miss you already.

this hotel is a must!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
