My wife and I had a great week at the Fethiye Park Hotel in the first week of July. The hotel is actually in Hisaronu and is a good base to visit Oludeniz and Fethiye downtown. We arrived at the hotel around 11pm being dropped off by our airport transfer (coach) outside the hotel. It was dark so we were not sure where we were going but were met by two friendly staff. An initial surprise was that there is no traditional hotel reception area but instead an outdoor cabin that is used as the office. Don't let this put you off, it simply adds to the character of the hotel.
What we liked about the hotel was that once you are within the enclosure of the hotel you are away from all the noise from the central area and yes it is very close to the central busy area of restaurants and shops so another positive.
All rooms have a balcony and when we stopped out in the morning we looked out to a great view of the swimming pool area and the mountains in the background. The room was pretty basic compared to other hotels that we have stayed but the balcony space gives you that extra space. There was a small tv and A/C in the room which was very handy. There was a fault with the door key when we put it in the slot as it kept tripping and it needed a bit fidgeting before it clicked in place. The bathroom had a funny smell every time we walked in the room and opened the door, and possibly the heat escalated the problem but we never reported this to staff.
Another great positive was that the bus stop was just across the road and there is a mini bus service with buses coming every 5 minutes or so. This was very handy. It cost 2,75TL to go to Oludeniz and 3.50TL to go to Fethiye.
I had read on one of the reviews that a buffet breakfast was not provided but this was not the case when we were there and we thought it was pretty good although there could have been more of a variety of cereal and you do need to pay for fresh juice.
Many of the guests during the week dined at the hotel in the evening and we also tried the food a couple of evening, which was very nice.
The swimming pool looked very clean and although we did not use it, it was used often by other guests regularly. There is also a table tennis table and pool table. The pool table is covered with a plastic sheet and all we needed to do was ask the staff and they would take it off for us.
Many reviewers have mentioned how great the staff are and that is very true.The staff make your stay very special and are very helpful. Sinan, the owner is a true gent and was very friendly and was helpful to us all week. We had a late night flight going back and he had no problem with us spending the afternoon at the hotel and if there was a room free, he would have let us use it. There is a small team of staff and we got to know Nurullah very well who is a great guy and spoke English very well.
We definitely chose the perfect hotel to stay at and would have no hesitation to stay at the Fethiye Park Hotel again.
