“Friendly atmosphere that you'll want to go back year after year”
Reviewed 1 February 2011

I have been to the Caretta six times now and my partner (who I introduced to the Caretta) has been twice and we are both looking forward to visiting again this October. We have both been of the mind that we would never go to the same place twice, but once you visit the Caretta its very difficult not to go back. Your holiday starts from the moment you step off the plane, you are met by Duran (Dr John (the owners) right hand man), who immediately takes your bags and leads you to the waiting mini bus, which takes you on your journey to Calis. As you make your way towards Calis and the Caretta Apartments you get a weird feeling, like your on your way home to see family you haven't seen for ages. The Caretta Apartments are clean and spacious and if you require anything all you have to do is ask. Dr John, his wife Mary and the rest of the staff at the Caretta make sure your stay is relaxed and happy. Nothing is too much trouble for them. If you need to go into the nearby town of Fethiye, especially for the market, Dr John will most often offer you a lift. This is not the norm as I have never experienced this when I've been anywhere else. The apartments are situated close to local shops and is a short walk to the shingle beach. I would certainly recommend the Caretta to anyone.

The Caretta Apts is a wonderful place to stay. close to the beach, right next to the dolmus stop that takes you into Fethiye or wherever you would like to go. small grocery store right down the road if you don't want to go into town. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, the shower was great with lots of hot water (and if you have travelled much you know how welcome that is..). Since it is an apartment, they do not supply everything a hotel might but it is not a problem to get what you need at the little market down the street. Highly recommend this place for longer stays. Can, the owner, is a friendly and helpful man who bends over backwards to make his guests comfortable. We had a wonderful time here and would love to go back. Only issue is: if you are a light sleeper like me, ask for an apt in the back away from the road.

Perfect pick up and return airport service supplied by the owner in air- con people carrier.Good size shower/toilet unlike the normal Turkish size.Bedroom and living/dining area also good size for holiday appt.Pool and appt cleaning good,bar prices very reasonable,good location,beach/restaurants 10 min. stroll on the flat no hills here,bus stop at the front,supermarket 100mtrs where you can get just about everything to self cater,a very good host who is only too willing to help in any way he can.15 mins in to Fethiye and the harbour but above all this is a lovely quiet location so after the hustle and bustle of a day out you return to peace.Oh! and to my delight,no loud music ever played at the bar/pool area to disturb you which for me was a joy.In all honesty you would be hard pushed to fault it overall for the money paid.I travelled independently 2 adults and a child aged 11 for relaxing at the beach,dining out and diving.If you can`t relax here and enjoy, see a doctor.Bedding and towel changing was the best I have experienced after travelling Turkey umpteen times.

This hotel is incredibly cheap and absolutely wonderful value. For the price we paid, I was expecting something quite basic, and was pleasantly surprised by how clean and tidy it all was.

The owner, Dr John, is freindly, helpful, and very caring towards his guests. He does everything he can to make your stay enjoyable. In fact, all the staff and his family are fantastic.

Although I am not enamoured with the area - Calis Beach being a bit "karaoke" for my taste - I would certainly return to Caretta Aparts which is situated well back from the beach area and serves as a bit of an oasis away from the hubub. Yes, there is a bit of traffic noise as the hotel is situated on a corner with the main road, but it's not intrusive.

The rooms are spick and span and cleaned every day. I saw three rooms during our stay and all were quite different and individual, but equally nice. The lovely cleaning ladies would leave my clothes and towels folded in pretty origame-like designs on the bed which I thought was a sweet touch! The pool is clean and perfectly adequate in size, situated next to the garden bar, which is a pleasant area, lush with plants and containing a great gazebo where the hours can be whiled away, reading, enjoying a drink, or chatting with Dr John (he loves a natter!)

Crucially, music does not blare out day and night - bliss!

After travelling extensively we by chance found Caretta Apart Hotel in Calis 16 years ago. Although we have never returned to a hotel before we have now been back to Caretta many times, at least twice a year! Although we still visit other countries we always return to Caretta. Can and Mary are perfect hosts who make you so welcome, as do all the staff.
The rooms are large and airy, excellent staff, the rooms are kept spotless and you only have to ask for something and it appears eg: extra blankets, pillows etc.
Our only problem is that it is now so popular that we have to book early!

Many thanks to Can and family and their excellent staff.
Perfect holiday. Again!!!
