My wife & I have just had a 2 week holiday in Oludeniz, our first visit to Turkey.
We stayed at The Tower Hotel from October 8th to 22nd. We would agree with all the positive comments made by other guests to this family run hotel. Excellent position, spotlessly clean etc.
There are some negative comments re the bringing to the hotel, food & drink from outside sources, most of the other hotels in Oludeniz operate this policy. We purchased small bottles of water from the hotel, price 1 Lira a bottle, which amounts to 35 pence. Supermarket price for the same size bottle, 25 pence. I don't think this issue needs any further comment.
We had booked bed & breakfast, which suited our purpose, there are many many restaurants within a 5 minute walk from the hotel, most are of good quality, serving Turkish, International, Indian & Chinese cuisine.
The resort of Oludeniz closes down for the winter months at the end of October, we found that by the second week of our stay, the hotel had only about 20 guests, so there was no problem with sunbeds at the poolside.
We have never stayed at a hotel where so many guests return year on year, one couple had already stayed at the Tower earlier in the year. By the end of our holiday I could see why the place was so popular.
The hotel employed a great barman called Ayhan (known as Buba to the guests). What a great guy, nothing was too much trouble this man, who was also as good as any tour rep in providing useful local information.
Buba worked the bar every night from 6pm to 6am without a night off & because of a great attitude to the job, people from other nearby hotels, would at the end of the evening, end up at the Tower bar. I used to ask them why, always the reply was, "because this bar is more friendly than the one at our hotel".
The annual Oludeniz International Air Games take place during the second weekend in October, anyone interested in paragliding then it is a must, great entertainment on the beach as the "pilots" come into land.
All in all we had a very enjoyable holiday & will return to the Tower Hotel next Ocober.
When we first stepped into the Tower, we were welcomed by one of the guests, who was quite a large guy with a good sun tan holding a large glass of beer. As we stepped off the coach he said "welcome to paradise"
He was right!
