“You'll not be able to 'top' the Yakamoz!”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

My wife and I have just returned from our second visit to Yakamoz - a real 'home from home' in terms of friendliness, fantastic food, relaxing atmosphere, and downright 'top value' for your money!
You'll struggle to find the equivalent of the "personal approach to service", that the Yakamoz management and staff provide, anywhere - no matter how hard you search, and if you can find a better chef in the Fethiye area then I'd like to meet him!
We actually stayed in room 23 in the annexe - which is THE closest room to the new 5* hotel that has sprung up since we last visited (which was only in October of 2011) - and I can assure you that there is NO need whatsoever to be concerned about excess noise from that hotel. OK, there were 'events' going on during the daytime and into the evening - but the noise levels were never what I'd call excessive, and everything always quietened down before midnight on every evening that we were there.
Once again, a big "thank you" to Mehmet, Julie, Ibo, Adam and the rest of the staff for looking after us at 5* standards - I'm sure that we WILL be back!

Room Tip: The 'Annexe' is closer then the 'Main Building' to the new hotel next door - but tha...

I have been to many hotels around the world ranging from 2 star all the way up to 5 star and the Yakamoz is up ther with the best of them.
We (my girlfriend and I) stayed in a standard room for just over a week and were very happy with it. All of the staff are amazingly firnedly and incredibly accomodating for any requests that you might have. The food is fantastic and although we tried eating in Oludeniz too we soon came to the conclusion that we prefered what the chef back at Yakamoz had to offer.

If you are looking to do any excursions then I would recommend using all of the recommended operators that the hotel works with as we did lots (paragliding, scuba diving, jeep safari, a trip to Pammukale, pony trekking and a flight in a microlight) and all of them were excellent.

I know I did mention the staff earlier but I cannot emphasise just how much they made our stay as memorable as it has been, they simply cannot do enough for you from the moment you arrive until they all wave you off when you depart. To Memhet, Julie, Ibo and all of the staff we would like to say a massive "thank you" for making our stay so enjoyable. Usually we rarely plan to return to countires/places that we have been to before (as I love seeing different parts of the world) but I know that sooner rather than later we will go back to Yakamoz again.

Quiet place near to fethiyue and oludeniz, the temperature is not that hot as in the cities, a/c not needed at all. Rooms are basic but clean, hotel services including lunch, dinner and shuttle bus really convenient. Perhaps the room's bathroom could have been renovated.

My wife, two sons, and I have just returned from a two week holiday at The Yakamoz and have all concluded that it is probably our favourite hotel,and holiday from the many we have shared over the years.
I think what makes it so special is the quality of the service.Ask for a drink and it will be provided very quickly indeed whether you ask for it in the bar,at the pool,or under the beautiful dappled shade of the orchard area. Not just provided but provided with a smile which lets you know that the staff have been happy to help.
The food was excellent, prepared by a chef who really knows his business. Nothing too complicated but invariably to a very high standard.
There is some noise from the next door hotel but it doesn't go on too late and it never stopped any of us from sleeping. There are new rooms being prepared in the older block which we had a sneeky look at and I think they will be excellent and will avoid the vast majority of the noise though, I suspect, it will die away during the weeks when there are not so many children on holiday in any case.
We really liked Fethiye 'Old Town' but went to Hisaranu one evening and could only cope with it for about 30 minutes (Olu Deniz about the same). Blackpool on Steroids! Did though go to a locals only retaurant there where all four of us ate and had drinks for a total charge of about £20.
Will we go back ? Only my hatred of flying will stop us though, I have to say, I was very impressed by the flight times and service of Jet 2 from East Midlands. They made the experience almost bearable and combined with the transfers arranged through Julie at the Yakamoz it was 'almost' painless.
We are on a weeks cruise at the end of the month. If the service is half as friendly and efficient as that at the Yakamoz I will be very pleased indeed.

Room Tip: All are clean, bright and comfortable. The annexe rooms are however larger and, I think well worth t...

Thank you Mehmet and Julie and all the staff for a much needed and enjoyable break at Yakamoz.

We had never been to Turkey before and we weren't sure what to expect. It was very hot in July so if you wish to go walking then try in Sept/Oct or May/June when it will be bearable as there is a fantastic walk 'The Lycean Way'. We spent a lot of time in Fetiye and took the dolmus to Kas and Kalkan, we also visited the ghost village, relaxing by the pool or in the hammocks were a favourite pastime as well.

We stayed in 3 types of their acomodation both cottages and the premium room due to availability (they book up fast). All were clean and the cottages especially were full of Turkish ornaments, pictures etc.

We also jumped off a perfectly good mountain and did our first ever paraglide which was amazing and well worth the cost 300tl with skysports including all photos and videos of your flight.

Yakamoz Hotel is a rural oasis in an area that is probably better known for the nearby town and nightlife of Hisaronu (25 mins walk), the beaches and lagoon at Oludinez (20 mins by bus) or the historic culture of Fethiye (25 mins by bus). We avoided the shops and tourist bars of Hisaronu (except for essentials and the HSBC cash machine), enjoying the tranquillity of the hotel pool and gardens or visiting the myriad of other wonderful places in the region.

The hotel has maintained a traditional style which we fell in love with instantly. The rooms in the original two storey block are nicely decorated and comfortable (with aircon recently added). More modern rooms are being opened upstairs next season, with alterations planned for several rooms downstairs (with a promise that they will retain the rustic charm of the current setup). There are also a number of bungalows/communal cottages that were fully booked when we were there, but we did not look around. The bar and restaurant are under/alongside grape vines, the pool is clean and well equipped and the gardens full of hammocks, swing seats and a traditional covered seating area - paradise! We stayed B&B (as we planned to eat out most evenings) but we quickly realised that there was very little to beat the quality, value, presentation and service of the hotel restaurant and staff.

Our big trips were organised by the hotel and they selected their operators very carefully (for quality and value). Our concerns over one mixed experience were taken up instantly by the hotel owner for personal review with the company. Access to Oludinez or Fethiye was easy on the local shuttle buses which cost less than £2 pp each way and the hotel operates a morning and evening drop off service to the bus stops. There is plenty to do locally for every age group, from ancient sites, mud baths, turtle viewing and Turkish baths to diving, riding, aerial pursuits or just swimming in the beautiful waters around the coast....10 days was just not enough.

Yakamoz Hotel should be the closest kept secret in Turkey but it would be wrong not to spread the word. If you want conga around the pool, wet t-shirt competitions or gammon, egg and chips they are close enough but not available within the confines of this hotel. If you want personal service, fun or peace then here it is. We rarely visit the same place twice, but we will go back to Yakamoz and our very active teenage children want to go back too!

Room Tip: We had an end double room with our children in a twin (opposite). We slept with the windows open on...

In fact, if I owned Paradise and Yakamoz, I'd probably rent out Paradise and live in Yakamoz, as long as I could keep the staff as well. Fantastic place, fantastic setting, great food, brilliant service - all done with humour and a smile. A place for couples and friends, with no young children to bother you. The olive grove and the restaurant covered by a huge vine just top the whole experience off. Went visiting in a hire car and the region is stunning - Oludeniz and especially Kadirak beaches as well as Sakklikent Gorge. Tripadvisor, you need a marking above excellent - the word doesn't do this hotel justice. We'll be back..and back...

Room Tip: New rooms being developed - larger and with great views of mountains.
