“Truly Disappointing”
Reviewed 11 December 2010

We had booked another hotel through Travel Republic but was bumped to the Harman. As it was only for 1 night and we weren,t fussed about a sea view, we accepted the change of booking.
I read the reviews on here and went expecting a warm and friendly place.
We were so disappointed - the lady on reception was abrupt and unfriendly. The reception area was dark and unwelcoming.
The room we were given in B block was not clean. There was dust tumbleweed all over the bedroom floor. One of the blankets was not at all clean. The room was very cold.

When we went out for dinner we asked if the heating could be put on in the room. On our return the room was barely warm.

During the night there was the most awful smell coming from the bathroom drains. Plus all through the night a generator/pump was going.

Breakfast was a very shabby affair. We had to ask for plates and cups for the coffee. The cheese was dried up and curling and there were no eggs left. The bread was stale. Breakfast was between 8 -10am and we were there at 8.20am so hardly late.

I mentioned some of the above on leaving and it was met with just a shrug.

Certainly wouldn,t stay there again and would discourage others from doing so.

The nicest staff we've met in Turkey, especially Murhat. The hotel was clean, the rooms are basic bad the food was great.

For the price, it's a really good deal !

Well, what a difference after 3 months after staying at the Cenk Bey Hotel and our review of that "Hotel"!
What a revelation, great reception, excellent service at Breakfast and evening meals, at the bar and even the maid service. Friendly staff and residents with comfortable surroundings made the atmosphere warm and inviting! Atmosphere so pleasant and relaxing to talk to other residents in convivial settings with plenty of activities to enhance the stay.
Departure was sad and where else would you have staff to give you a lovely and heart felt send off with the feeling that it wouldn't be long till we returned, which, can't come quick enough!
Check out Travel Republic for the offers!

Arrived in the middle of the night to a mistake in the sleeping arrangements. This was quickly sorted out and off to bed. Only problem with nights was a couple of nights when a generator or something suddenly roared into action about 3 in the morning, otherwise a quiet hotel but then it was out of season. Mixed german and english. Never seemed overcrowded but it was out of season. Only problem is that if a coach of new people arrive the entrance is very small and guests struggle to get in while the party is checking in. Hotel reception has the look of a museum, strange to our eyes as lots of farming equipment but it grows on you! Food is unadventurous but the fresh pancakes and omelettes are nice. (only did breakfast so can't comment on dinner) Loads of places around the hotel to eat out and very good prices. Hotel close to buses and the Sunday market, (well worth a visit and they don't pester you) Home made slush puppies with ice cut from the hills are a novelty! Feithye market on a Tue is huge! Boat trips etc can be booked all over at half the travel company prices and my friend who lives there says most good so worth enquiring, we went on 2 that were good. Hotel staff friendly and helpful if asked. pool very clean. Small area around pool for sunbeds so prehaps crowded in summer but fine while we were there. Overall travelled to this hotel and stayed 2 weeks B&B for less than it would have cost us for 2 flights and transfers. That can't be bad! took £700 for 2 of us for 14 days and managed well so still cheap to.

We glad we picked Harman as our base for 4 nights for our visit to Calis, Fethiye and Oludeniz. The excellent location, just off the main road in Calis was perfect. It was literally a 2 min walk to the main road where one could take the bus to Fethiye (citybus was cheaper than dolmus and came every half hour) or take a right turn to walk towards the lovely Calis Promenade and the water taxi stand for Fethiye.

The staff- right from the managers, Tunas and Murad were extremely helpful and friendly. The cooks, waiters, cleaners- all very friendly and welcoming.

We got a good room- block C. Block A rooms were in the main building and overlooked the bar - so it could noisy after dark. Block B and block C rooms were the best bet. Almost all rooms have a balcony facing the pool and bar area. We went half board and the food was fine. No complains. Wednesday night was Turkish Night where the guests enjoyed barbeque dinner (excellent chicken) and a entertaining turkish dance show. Good stuff!!

You would be hard pressed to find a sunbed if you arrive late as the ones around the immediate pool area would be occupied as early as 7 am-geeez!!

The room was clean, very comfortable and had a balcony facing the pool. Small TV with BBC/CNN was there as well.

Overall, we had an excellent stay at the Harman and would not hesitate to come here again.

Just back from an excellent week at The Harman, 2nd time to Calis, 1st time to this hotel. Rooms were comfortable, clean and ours was quite spacious, loads of hot water only complaint was they don't provide bath mats so when we had a shower we had to put our beach towels on the bathroom floor!!
Breakfast was typically Turkish with excellent pancakes or omelettes every morning.
Only did b and b so can't comment on evening meals. The bar and bar staff were excellent, especially Ferhat, a real gentleman.
All the hotel staff were friendly and helpful, especially Murat and the lady on reception.
The hotel and resort were winding down for the end of the season so it wasn't too busy and never had probs getting a bed by the pool. As the previous post says apparently this was a problem the week before went with certain people reserving 4 or more beds at a time!!!
We had lovely meals out in Georges, Bella mammas, The Nil bar and the highlight of our holiday which was Mozaic Bache in Fethiye. A fabulous lunch and evening meal here, Only Turkish food on the menu and Nichola and Dogan are such a lovely couple.
We loved getting the water taxi into Fethiye, a lovely relaxing way of getting there!
We had a couple of lunches at Gunisic(just over the canal bridge) and also bought a few pastries from the lady with the little cart just before the bridge and would sit and eat these on the seafront!
Love the new wooden decking seating area on the prom, great for sitting and looking at the view!
Again Calis didn't disappoint and we will hopefully return to the Harman.
