I read all the reviews before booking and the Caretta has lived up to its reputation, it's the perfect place to go if you want a relaxing holiday with a bit of shopping and sightseeing.
The best thing about this hotel is the people who run it, Dr Can and his wife (Meri) can't do enough for you. They did so many things for us which we would have never expected. I really don't know what else to add to to the previous great reviews so my highlights are: giving us lifts into Fethiye, inviting us to eat with them to sample proper Turkish food, organizing a boat trip for us and negotiating a discount (someone else would have slapped a fat commission on top), giving us sandwiches and drinks before we left so we didn't have to spend a fortune at the outrageusly expensive Dalaman cafeteria. Had we been interested in football we could have gone to their house to watch some important match. I've never met such nice hotel owners!
I also recommend the trips they organize. This was our fifth time in Turkey and usually any excursion includes some lenghty, tedious stops at a gold/leather/carpet/turkish delight factory where you are pressurized into buying some overpriced stuff. Luckily there's none of that with Dr Can, you only get to see the good bits (the landscape is stunning) and it feels like an outing with friends.
We liked it so much we are going back next year.
Once again cok tesekkur ederim (sorry the spelling) and see you next year.
