“Friendly family run getaway. Ideal for chilling & enjoying Turkey Time!”

Yet again a perfect holiday made all the better by the relaxed and friendly occupants at the Gondol.
The bijou 'mini villas' have everything needed to base either a sun seeking relaxed holiday, or an adrenaline fueled 2 week knees-up!
The local area must be the friendliest corner of Turkey and the first question everyone asks when they meet isn't, "Is this your first time?" its, "How many times have you been?"
From the moment you book to stay at Gondol you already feel you're on holiday.
41 weeks and counting till our next stay (if we can bear to stay away that long!)

“Welcoming ... Back with friends old and new.”

Our second trip to Gondol Apartments with our 16 year old daughter. We knew from our visit in 2013 we wouldn't be disappointed and we certainly weren't. 2 new staff members Murat and Alaaddin met us on arrival and helped us to our apartment. We soon settled in and after a nice reunion with Angela and owners Ali and Jane on day 2 soon felt relaxed in the "family" environment.

We met some nice families with children of a similar age and they soon bonded allowing my partner and I to sit back and enjoy.

Roll on 2016, thanks to all

We have just got back from our week's stay at Gondol Apartments and must say we had a great time. The owners are very friendly and helpful with anything you ask. The bar staff are great and helpful in regards to arranging trips for you etc.
The lady who cleans the apartments was really sweet and left flowers in our room everyday......what a gem!

We would definitely come back again and recommend to anyone wanting low cost accommodation with very hospitable people.
Thanks again Ali & Jane xx

I stayed here for 2 nights on vacation with my cousin, and we both had a great experience at Gondol apartments. As has been mentioned in other reviews, the value is just remarkable. Having a pull-out sofa in the kitchen was great as it meant we both got our own rooms. The apartments are just a short walk from the main road, where you can easily take public transportation down to Oludeniz beach. Murat (the on-site manager) was awesome and extremely kind. He went above and beyond during our stay to make sure we were taken care of, including hooking us up with a great paragliding company (Gravity). Thanks so much, Murat!

Would definitely recommend Gondol Apartments to any interested party.

“Great value”
Reviewed 14 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Great week spent with friends. Jane, Ali and his staff were friendly and worked hard to make our stay memorable. Helped us book a brilliant boat trip and a wonderful restaurant for Halloween.
Pool was cold but not surprising at the end of October.
Hot water was an issue when the sun did not shine!

They have their own website so you can get an idea of what they look like.
These are located in a more residential area of Ovacik.
They are run by Ali and Jane and there seemed to be a lot of repeat visitors.
They are a little unusual in that they have two floors but are keep very clean
and come with some nice little extra touches as well, we were provided with a small
bottle of water, small carton of milk and tea bags and sachets of coffee to start us off.
There is a nice pool with a small bar area with compatible prices to what is in the main
resort, background music is played throughout the day mainly 70’s 80’s and a few from the
90’s. Ali,s exchange rate is also very good, the staff are very competent and are very
friendly and obliging. (its worth while E-mailing if you have any special room requests)
All the apartments have an outside table and chairs so it is very pleasant to just sit
out.
They have an onsite restaurant for breakfasts and lunch which was very good and popular
with other people staying in the apartments as well as with people staying close by.

Out and about.

When you come out of the Gondol apartments and turn right then turn left this takes you to
the main Ovacik road, if you then turn right it takes you into Ovacik, there are loads of
restaurants and there is also plenty of supermarkets on this road, the bigger ones Azda
and Sol seem to have better prices but beware as they add tax to the prices between 8%
and18%, there is also a bakery on this road.
Walking further on takes you to hisinoru.
We tried a few of the restaurants
Friar Tucks, The Lemon tree, Barracuda and 3 Cheers.
Wine seem to be quite expensive, you can even find it costing more than the meal although
beer seems to be priced ok.
If you go left on the Ovacik road you will find a outdoor fruit and veg place very good
choice and good prices further up there is a Bim supermarket (like Lidi don't forget about
the tax!!)

Further afield

Oludeniz.
Dolmus run along the main road (worth a visit to the blue lagoon, beach is OK, we think it
looks better from a distance, there is also a charge to enter 5 tl)
Oludeniz is a nice place to look around, be careful of the landing paragliders!!

Kaya again dolmus bus can be caught on the main road, Kaya is a deserted old Greek village
good for a morning or afternoon visit, wear suitable footwear as it is quite stoney and
steep!!

Hisinarou market (on Mondays) very good market make sure you look at all of it before you
purchase anything (also they like English £10 notes)
Fethiye again nice place to visit on the way there is a new shopping mall called Erasta
the dolmus goes past it.
and lastly make sure you get to the airport within a good amount of time as the Turkish
seem to be very tight on security, we had 3 separate security scans the last one was
before we boarded the plane, baggage were being randomly checked and anything electrical
you were asked to switch on to make sure they powered up.
