“charming village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

This is a bit late as we stayed here for 2 weeks in July! The grounds and cottages of Ocakkoy are lovely, it is spread out up the side of a hill so if you have a further cottage be prepared for a bit of a hike. Worth it though for the peace and quiet and the wonderful views. The down side of being on a hill is that that the sound travels and some nights the PA system from a hotel below was very invasive with loud music, such a shame. If you want noisy and lively then visit Hisaronu! We saw tortoises, frogs and lizards, as well as the free range chickens who would come right up to the top cottages. Depending on your mobility it is a bit of a hike to the bus stop, and also very dark at night. We caught the dolmas a couple of times, which was cheap and easy. Also we hired a car for a week which helped with shopping and also to visit Fethiye, Kalkan etc. The food in the restaurant was very good and the waiters were smashing, but I gather there is now a bit of "holiday camp" style creeping in - not what Ocakkoy is about. The pool area (adult) was lovely, plenty of sun beds with shady areas. The cottages are very basic and the bathroom in ours was in need of refurbishment. Bed was ok, but there is nowhere comfortable to sit inside or out. Air con very welcome as it was exceedingly hot whilst we were there. Having the children's pool away from the Adult one is an excellent idea, and it caters for the children very well. Overall we really enjoyed the beauty and peace (mostly). The cottages were kept clean by a group of lovely women and nothIng was too much trouble for any of the staff. Special thanks to the owners who very quickly arranged the return of my left behind (!) iPad....

Our fourth visit to Ocokkoy, still the most beautiful natural haven in Turkey. We've now stayed in three different cottages & even one of the apartments, all of which felt very homely, clean & comfortable but most of all private, absorbing into the mountainside, especially this year when we stayed in number 29, with no immediate neighbours, just some local chickens & wild tortoise.
With all the families gone home, both pools were free to relax by & the mountain views still breathtaking, only problem, the quiet tranquil ambience that usually accompanies this special
place is being sullied by extraordinarily loud PA systems echoing across the valley from the nearby mini-Blackpool/ Brits Abroad holiday town, Hyrosonu- locally nicknamed Hyroshima, which previously felt a comfortable distance from Ocokkoy's borders. Also new large holiday homes are being built behind the family pool, which seem totally out of place. Despite this & the influx of a large group of noisy Essex couples on day two of our holiday, occupying all of the apartments by the pool, Ocokkoy's spell seemed to come over even them, calming them all down after a couple of days or maybe it was the fierce looks they were getting from the other 'campers' by the adult pool who all seem to adhere to the unspoken rule of maintaining a quiet, relaxed atmosphere.
Edi the excitable head bar-man/waiter seemed to enjoy & encourage the energetic holiday-vibe, encouraging everyone to get up after the sat night BBQ & the performance from a troup of lovely young Turkish dancers to do formation dancing to nightclub favourites like Gangum- style & the Macarena ....a complete contrast to our last visit two years ago, when we found ourselves sitting in the bar listening to Ramazan, the then head-barman & Ozoman the then manager playing a beautiful duet onTurkish guitars, whilst we sipped our after dinner drinks & watched the stars. This new attitude concerns me that Ocokkoy is beginning to let Hyrosunu infect its tranquility & trying to keep its head above water in the current climate through desperate means.
Despite all these observations, Ocokkoy is still a magical space, it even has its own resident 'witch', Shirley, who lives at number 26, an elagent, silver haired, ex ballet dancer,who's lived in Turkey for over 50 years & co-founded the village with its original owners. She's often seen at the restaurant
in the evenings chatting to guests.
Occokoy is still our favourite place in the world & I will still continue to recommend it to all of those in need of a truly special retreat.

Pretty cottages scattered throughout the hillside (beware the climb to some can be steep). The cottages are small and basic but comfortable and have a real charm about them. The aircon is effective enough to keep them cool even when it is very hot outside and despite it only being in the main bedroom. Basic cooking facilities are provided and are sufficient to cook supper if you can't be bothered to go out. The on site restaurant is good enough, we found some dishes worked better than others but you will find your own way thought the overly large menu. The family pool is wonderful, warm water, great slide and generally very quite (apart from the kids that is) and plenty of beds available with decent shade. Goats, cows, chickens and lizards make for great entertainment. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area and trips are easy to book, if you don't want a crowd then Cemil the local taxi driver can take you. All in all a great place to stay a bit off the beaten track but close to everything you could possibly want. Just a shame about the ever encroaching nearby town with it's bright light and loud PA systems!

Room Tip: Depends on what you want, those by the pool are probably easiest access wise but those scattered thr...

We booked a week at Ocakkoy to take my partner's 12 year old daughter on a treat holiday, as she had done so well in her first year at secondary school. We had a wonderful time, because Ocakkoy is that rare thing: a place where you can truly relax. The owners are so confident in the beauty and peace of the place that they do nothing to spoil it. There is no music by the pool, ( a pet hate of mine), just the sound of the birds and the crickets. There is no 'entertainment', apart from a fantastic weekly BBQ with an amazing troop of Turkish dancers who are also out of the ordinary to match Ocakkoy. There is even a pool for kids and a pool for adults, well away from each other, so everyone is happy.
The staff at reception and in the restaurant are incredibly helpful and friendly and the food is great. Most of the rooms, which are basic but very clean and comfortable, come with a terrace area and a small kitchen and we self catered for breakfast most mornings and a few lunches and suppers. There is a little food shop at reception, but the market at Fethiye every Tuesday was where we stocked up on fantastic fruit and veg.
I noticed that a recent review said it was quite a walk to pick up the mini bus service into town. It is about a 10 minute walk through a pine forest and we never waited longer than 2 minutes for a bus. Fethiye is a great local town, but we loved Ocakkoy so much we only left it a couple of times to go on a few excursions, which were also excellent, especially the lazy day cruise. Most of the people we met there had been many times and we are already planning our return. That, plus a very sad 12 year old as we left for the airport, speaks volumes. If you like your summer holiday quiet and very relaxing then this is the place for you.

Room Tip: Cottages by the adult pool are very quiet as are the cottages numbered 11 to 15.

This is a lovely place to relax and get away from it all. With lovely veiws and traditional Turkish rooms, this is a great place to stay. The only downside I have of this place is that you're quite alone and even though there is a mini bus service which runs all the time it is a long walk to the dolmus stop and any restaurants or bars. We found ourselves eating in the restaurant at resort but this was quite expensive. So if you are visiting then pack a torch! Or you can pay for a taxi. Also depending what cottage to get put into makes a massive difference to the holiday as some are small and very basic but have nice veiws over the mountins and other are larger but don't have the veiws. The self-catering facilities are also very basic and I wouldn't of thought you'd be able to cook a meal with what's to offer. Overall a lovely holiday!

We traveled Turkey and booked through Thomson holidays to stay at the Ocakkoy Cottages on the 21st June 2013 for one weeks holiday, What can we say.The best holiday we have ever had. We arrived at approx midnight and were welcomed by the night porter at the reception area. He took our cases and escorted us to our room which was the end of a 4 block terrace No 34.The room was really spacious with the first room having two single beds which led onto the well equipped kitchen with kettle, 2 ring gas cooker, fridge with ice compartment which is certainly most needed, pots pans, plates , glasses etc.There was even a welcome pack consisting of coffee, tea bags, milk, sugar, fruit and most important a bottle of chilled white wine. To the left was a double bedded bedroom with plenty of storage space for clothes and an free air conditioning unit. Just off the bedroom there was the bathroom with a walk in shower with all the mod cons you could ask for. To the front was a very spacious terrace where we sat most nights listening to music with a cool cold drink or should i say a few cold drinks. The main adult pool was only 10 meters away from our cottage which was fantastic when you needed a dip to cool off which was every hour. The breakfasts and the meals in the restaurant were great with no complaints from us. The staff at the reception could not do enough for you and spoke very good English, In fact all the staff from the cleaners to the bar staff were fantastic,nothing was too much. they would even arrange for meals to be brought to your terrace if you fancied dining alone. The cottages are set in a beautiful gardens with roaming chickens. A lot of the food is produced and grown in the village or in the local area.
Ocakkoy cottages is set approx 400 meter of the beaten track and be warned if you should venture out during day light hours and return after dark ensure you have a good torch with you or hire a taxi. Without one or the other you will never be seen again ha ha ha. only joking but the road is very dark with no lighting needless to say we forgot the torch and hired a taxi each time we came home.
If you want to explore the local area then use the local buses which are called the dolmus. If you have been to Turkey before then you will expect the dolmus to be an old ancient bus. These are new Mercedes mini buses and are great to travel in.
Hisaronu is just 10 minutes away by bus from the resort, Hisaronu is an inland resort with no beach or sea front but is the main place to go both night and day. There are fantastic shops, bars and restaurants to explore. We found a beauty parlor called Booty's, not normally our thing but was recommended by our rep. I had 3 Turkish shaves and my wife had a massage, a pedicure and eyelash extensions. I can say its the only place we've been to where you walk in sober and come out drunk. The amount of free drinks that they give away is unreal. just 10 minutes further on is Oiu Deniz. Here you have beaches, water sports and the famous blue lagoon. You can book all of the boat trips and water sports on the beach front. We booked the lazy days cruise at £5 each. we left at 10:30 are got back at 18:30. There are shops, bars and restaurants for all to enjoy
In the opposite direction is Fethiye. Again a beach resort but here you will find the local market and the well known fish market where you buy the fish and its cooked in the restaurants for you.
All i all we had a fantastic holiday and cannot wait to return in the near future

Room Tip: We had an end terrace no 34 which was great. There are semi and detached bungalows. No 34 has the su...
