We spent a wonderful week at the Ece Saray Hotel at the end of July this year and it was truly fantastic! I want to go back there now!
It's location is perfect and standing on the small balcony in the morning looking over the marina towards the beautiful blue sea and mountains was truly idyllic. Our room was lovely and had all we wanted and more. The bathroom was well equipped with towelling robes and slippers too, also a lot of lovely toiletries available. There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room and a small mini bar where we kept some cans and milk we bought at the supermarket (there are a couple of small supermarkets nearby and also one on the Marina).
Everything was very clean in the hotel and the air conditioning in the hotel and our room was perfect - not too loud but kept us lovely and cool. It was baking whilst we were there and coming back to our lovely cool room after a day out was blissful.
Breakfast on the roof terrace was delicious, a huge choice of hot and cold food, fruit, cereals, bread, toast, coffee, tea, juice and also a choice of boiled or scrambled eggs, omelette, full English or crepes. We found we didn't need to bother with lunch after having had breakfast!! The staff in the breakfast room were all lovely and friendly.
The pool was fabulous, never too crowded, we always managed to find beds and an umbrella and the one day there wasn't an umbrella available Mustafa (who I see has been mentioned in a previous review) went out of his way to find us one and put it up for us.
I treated myself to a spa treatment at the hotel spa/Turkish bath (paid in Turkish Lira as this worked out the cheapest) and that was a lovely experience (I think it worked out at £20 for a Turkish massage/exfoliation and I was in there about one and a half hours so not bad value!).
The location of the hotel is perfect, just 10 minutes along the front to the main hustle bustle of Fethiye. We found it very cheap to eat out and on our last night treated ourselves to a meal by the marina at the Hotel (we were only bed and breakfast). Our meal was gorgeous! A buffet starter followed by a choice of main course and then buffet dessert (and there were some very yummy desserts!). With two drinks and tip it came to 105 Turkish Lira which we thought was well worth it.
My only, very small, gripes would be the lack of hook in the bathroom/bedroom to hang up towels/towelling robes (I told you it was a small gripe!) and a couple of the staff on Reception were sometimes not that friendly/helpful (but I'm happy to put that down to the language barrier), in fact the least friendly person I encountered whilst here was the British lad who was there on work experience who deal with our luggage on our last day!
There is free Wi-Fi in the Reception area of the hotel and there are also a number of English books available to borrow in the sitting area on each of the floors which was useful.
We requested (and got) a second floor room but I could see no problem with having a lower level room apart from the view from the balcony may not be so good. There was no problem with noise either inside or outside the hotel.
I can't wait to go back! I loved Fethiye and the Ece Saray!
