“Excellent Hotel wonderful position.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2009

Our first visit to Turkey. Eylem on reception was great. She was always available and helpful also she had the answer to all our questions. The breakfast was excellent and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool area is very good with plenty of shade if you want it..
The room was a bit small but the wonderful sea view made up for that. The sunsets from the balcony were stunning. There are plenty of restaurants within two miniutes walk of the hotel. The promenade is completely flat. I am disabled and would recommend the hotel and area for anyone with walking difficulties.
We are definately going to book here again.

We returned to Turkey staying at the Hotel Mutlu in Chalis Beach,our first time at this resort.

The Mutlu Hotel is situated at the very end of the promonade towards Fethiye excellent location. The hotel is small with a small but excellent swimming pool which is the same depth from end to end. Access to the beach is 10 yards across the promonade where sun loungers and parasols can be hired at 9 TYL per day.

Listen out for the frog chorus at night!

The beach is made of shingle and once in the water quickly deepens so not ideal for small children or the less confident swimmer.

Breakfast at the Mutlu is tradional Turkish offering, scrambled eggs/boiled eggs available every day, The chef made omelettes at least twice a week which were very good. Breakfast is served at the front of the hotel giving you a lovely view whilst eating, overall a very good breakfast. If you do require a full english lots of restaurants offer this service starting at around 8TYL.

However the lack of fresh fruit at breakfast was disappointing as water melon is grown everywhere locally.

The rooms are basic but comfortable and cleaned on a daily basis, lots of hot water and air conditiong that worked.

The Mutlu provides a lunch and dinner menu at the pool or the attached Lion Lounge, as per previous reports we did not use either as there are far to many restuarants around the resort to try, however we did attend the Wednesday night BBQ which was excellent and very good value at 25TYL per person.

The staff are all very helpful and willing to help, Aylem on reception is very helpful and friendly.

A note for ladies who require a hairdryer although each room has a hairdryer they are challenging to use!!!

For lunch in the resort we used Gunisik which is located over the canal bridge on the left hand side of the road. Kebabs were good value at 4TYL for chicken and 5TYL for lamb they also offer set meal deal starting at 10TYL and going up to 23TYL all include large Effes.

Effes is the local beer and is very good and costs 4TYL for a large beer/bottle at every bar in the resort except Josephs Bar( just down from Gunisik) where it is 3,500.

Joseph's is a small bar where you can sit and people watch.

Meals at Night

There are many places to eat within the resort and you will find your own favourites we ended up eating at Bella Mamma's and George's both located on the sea front.

Bella Mamma's serves Italian food from pizza's to T-Bone steaks all excellent quality.

The fresh pasta was delicious the steaks and pizza's as good as they could be , I had pancakes on each visit which were soooooo good!

Starter's were priced from 4TYL the most expensive item was a T Bone steak at 27TYL

On the night's we ate there the bill was between 50 - 70TYL which included drinks/coffee.

Georges

A traditional turkish restaurant located further along the beach promonade served traditional meals, the staff are very effiencent and friendly, with many returning customers, we never had a bad meal the seafood was sooooooo goood! free bread and garlic butter to start typical bill with drinks 50-60 TYL you also get free tea/coffee once you have paid the bill.

p.s pancakes also very good here.

Trips

Having been to this area of Turkey many times before we decided to only do the jeep safari.

Booked with Karacay ( over canal bridge on the right hand side) we chose them because the jeeps looked robust and safe, previous experience has proved this is not always the case with other companies.

The trip cost £18 per person which included a lunch at the Gorge.

The day started at 08:30 and we took a drive through the mountains to TLOS and then on to a trout farm for a short refreshment stop.

Drinks slightly more expensive Effes 5TYL soft drinks a whopping 4.5TYL
Then on to the Gorge were the entrance fee is now 4TYL per person check to see if the entrance fee is include in your tour price.

An excellent place to see, however make sure you have suitable footwear on, flip flops are not suitable, make sure your camera equipment is also safely stored as at some points you will need both hands, on our trip one camcorder met a watery grave!!!!!!

If the local lads offer to help you wade across you will need to tip them as they will follow you until you do, the guides from Karacay will help you across if you need help.

Lunch is served at the Gorge, mezze starters followed by choice of fish/chicken/meatballs or omelette Drinks priced at 5TYL per large beer.

The mud baths then followed, really good fun you will get very muddy if you choose to take part do not wear the latest item in your wardrobe.

Karacay then took us to the Seceret Garden Beach Club which allowed people to get rid of the rest of the mud and chill out on the beach. Overall a very good day out.

Bars in Chalis Beach

The Mutlu has it own bar, to be fair this is used mainly by the residents at the end of the evening for a night cap.

If you you go to the bar between 19:00 and 20:00 you can have something cold whilst watching the sun go down....

We would then go to Joseph's for a drink before dinner, and excellent place to people watch.

For a livelier experince and cocktails we visited Bus Stop Bar on the beach front,Cocktails starting at 10TYL excellent muisc, Friday night's a must do. Other bars available B-52 looks good too.

We also took the water taxi into Fethiye, a really good way to get there at 8TYL return per person. Fethiye a good day out , a visit to the old town is well worth the visit and we shall return to Fethiye in the autumn to try a number of restaurants mentioned on this site.

We had coffee and cake at the Ozsut cafe on the front towards the marina, not cheap but well worth the calories.

The current exchange rate is £1 = 2.45 which makes your money go further, we did a little bit of shopping but the genuine fakes appeared to have gone up in price with watches starting at £40 for the bigger names and leather bags between £50 - £100.

Beware if buying a lot of goods, when returning to this country at Dalaman they will charge you £10 per kilo over your allowance. Which happend to many people on our return flight.

An excellent holiday, recharged our batteries we will return next year.

We stayed at the Mutlu in August during our vacation in Turkey. We booked it on short notice based on positive TripAdvisor reviews, and were not disappointed. The Mutlu has the best location in Fethiye. It is right on the Calis Beach promenade, and within a few minutes' walk of dozens of shops and restaurants.

The hotel's best feature is its swimming pool, which is large and surrounded by attractive landscaping. Our seven year old daughter loved it and was very happy. There was shade and plenty of chairs, although they tended to fill up by mid-morning. Next to the pool was a convenient bar, which was open all day.

The rooms were fine - nothing fancy, but clean. The TV and air conditioning worked well, which were our most important considerations. The hotel had wireless internet access in the lobby area.

The food at dinner and breakfast was served buffet-style. The food was good and had enough variety. However, there are so many restaurants in the area, that a lot of people, us included, went outside for dinners.

The clientele is heavily British, many of whom were there on vacation packages. There was a wide range of ages, from young families with kids up through retirees.

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the woman at the front desk. When we decided to extend our stay in Fethiye, she went way out of her way to find us a room at a nearby hotel (the Mutlu was fully booked) for the extra days.

We definitely recommend the Mutlu, especially for families with kids who want a good swimming pool and easy beach access.

Mutlu Hotel is set in the best position in Calis Beach, its a few steps to the sea, all the rooms face out to sea so there is so much to look over while chilling on the balcony having a cuppa.

it is a very clean and tidy hotel, they provide very good food.

our only issues were.. if you do not buy there drinks and food they are not as friendly as they are with the customers that spend all day in the hotel with there money

they do not provide a fridge or kettle in any of the rooms, so we had to search hi & low but did find a kettle in fethiye town.

we could not get near the pool in the whole 2 weeks, it says you cant reserve pool beds till 8 am but by 6.30 am they were all taken.

but over all it was pleasant stay

What more can I add to all the reviews on this site. Well all I can say is that I have been to many 4+5 star hotels around the world and in Turkey but none of them have this special vibe that this hotel has. I spoke to many people staying here and was told that they had been coming to the Mutlu for 15 years some even more than 20 years and I can see why.
The rooms are clean and you get clean towels every day. They are not spacious but I would say they are average.
Breakfast is very good and every other day the chef is on hand to cook you a mean omelette or fried eggs otherwise your can have scrambled egg or boiled egg. The bread rolls are always fresh and this goes for all the meats,tomatoes, cheese etc. Toast and jam is on offer plus yoghart and honey. The restuarant looks out to the sea which is a bonus.
All the staff are extremely friendly but I must say that Eylem is a godess, she cannot do enough for you and is always happy she is by far the nicest person I have met working in reception.
If you like to stay around the pool I can vouch to the cleanliness of the pool and the gardens. There is always loungers availiable and the breeze that arrives every day whisks across the pool area and helps to cool you especially when the temperatures reached 40 degrees in the shade.
All in all my opinion of this hotel is that you will find it hard to find one like it and I will definately be going back.
I will post a review on Calis itself on the appropiate page.
Thanks again for all at the Hotel Mutlu for making our holiday a holiday to remember.
