This was our fifth visit to Hotel Leytur. There were ten of us in our party, ranging from 24 to 60 and everyone loves it. It is a small, family run hotel in a quiet location in Ovacik in the mountains.
Leyla, her husband Sukru and all the staff, from the maids, gardener and bar staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel, pool, poolside and bedrooms are all spotlessly clean. Food at the hotel is excellent, we love the Turkish breakfast sitting overlooking the mountains/pool and the poolside lunches and evening meals are also excellent. The Turkish night is great fun, fantastic buffet meal and a fun evening with the belly dancer, audience participation is a must!
It is great relaxing round the pool, no problem getting sunbeds and the pool is the clearest we have come across. There is a room with pool table, darts and table tennis for the more active.
Hop on a dolomus at the end of the road to go into Hisonaru, or you can walk, where there are good restaurants, shops and bars, and great hairdressers (manicure £4, pedicure £8 and hair cut and blow dry only £10). The customary Turkish bath is also a must. A little further on the bus takes you to Olu Deniz and the fabulous Blue Lagoon where the sea is crystal clear. It is also good for eating (Buzz Bar excellent) and good bars and shops, Great to sit on bean bags on the beach and have a cocktail. In the other direction is Fethiye with its lovely harbour and labyrinth of shops and bars/restaurants. We would recommend the fish market, chose which fish you want and they cook it for you in one of the restaurants around the market. The boat trips are great (we would recommend Carolye and Tayfun, 12 island cruise and sunset cruise), they provide transport to and from the hotel and provide a bbq on board. Excellent value for money. Kaya is also worth a visit.
Back to the hotel, we just love its tranquillity and there is always a nice breeze. The bar area is great for meeting other guests and Leyla and her staff are always there to chat.
We cant wait to return next year and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
