“just like going home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2009

we've just returned from our second holiday at the leytur this year,and enjoyed it as much as ever. we arrived at 3 o'clock in the morning,a member of staff came out with a bit of paper with our room number on it.( the fethiye philharmonic orchestra was playing the 1812 overture at the poolside, accompanied by cannon and fireworks). the hotel was virtually full. we met many people who we've met before and lots of people who have been for the first time.all were very nice,friendly folk.
we have become used to this hotel over the last few years. i suppose we are a little biased because we love it. the family who own the leytur are very nice down to earth people, who will go out of there way to help you,over and above the usual requirements.we have always found the atmosphere very warm and friendly here and i think it begins with leyla and her husband,sukru,and their family and the staff.the owners live on site,eat there, drink there, socialise there.they demand the same standards as the guests.
the rooms are basic but very clean, room and bathroom cleaned daily,beds changed twice in the week, towels four times ( maids would change towels on demand.) air conditioning for about £3/£3:50 per night.
breakfast consists of fresh bread,tomatoes, cucumber,cheese,olives,boiled eggs,yoghourt,melon,jams and honey,the same as you get in most turkish 3star hotels. more traditional english style dishes are available at a reasonable price. if ever i've found some of the breakfast buffet has run out, the kitchen staff have always replaced it on request. poolside lunches are very good as are the evening meals in the restaurant, as good as in town and compare favourably pricewise.the food at the turkish night was excellent,the fact that it was indoors because of a spot of rain was of no detriment and a good night was had by all.
the countryside around the leytur is beautiful and the views are stunning.dolmus buses run every 5 mins. to olu deniz, fethiye,and hsaronou, all different in character.its nice to go to these places,but its nice to go back to the leytur and its location.
hopefully we'll be back in june and i know we are sure to see many familiar faces.( maybe the guests who get up in the night to claim their sun beds and dont sit on them untill 15:00 will be in marmaris.maybe ugr wont be playing amy winehouse or the ODD rap. who knows )
well done leyla ,sukru and staff

We have just returned from our sixth visit to the Leytur, and would like to thank Leyla and all her staff for helping to make it a great holiday. I find some of the less favourable reviews hard to understand, it would appear that some people want to pay rock bottom prices and then expect to stay at the Hilton. The hotel is very friendly ,with a lovely swimming pool, rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable, food is very good and reasonably priced. We cannot wait to go back next year which says it all really.

2nd stay with Leyla and her friendly, attentive staff this year and will definately go again! Felt like arriving home the 2nd time we went as Leyla is certainly the hostess with the mostest. Great value for money, most of Leyla's guests are repeat bookings which says it all. If anyone can find fault with Leytur at these prices there is something wrong with them.
Looking forward to going again next year, hopefully for 3 weeks! Carry on just as you are Leyla, Sukru & staff, excellent!!

After reading the ‘great’ reviews of this hotel on Tripadvisor I felt confident that we had made the right choice for our week away in Turkey. But how wrong could we have been? When we arrived at 6.00am after a late flight there was nobody around to greet us, eventually a waiter came into the reception and took our suitcase. He had a piece of paper saying “Room 101”. As we were to find out this certainly was our room 101 as the grumbling waiter led we into a horrible, dark and dingy basement with no balcony – similar to a dungeon.
The room was situated in a dark corner of the hotel and I did not feel safe at all. The room itself was very basic and the shower leaked every time we used it. I was a bit upset about how dingy the room was and asked the owner when she came in that morning if she could kindly move us. We were basically told that the “room was for sleeping and washing in” and she refused to move us. Every night I dreaded coming back to the hotel at night as it just didn’t feel clean.
Over our 7 night stay the towels and bedsheets were only changed once. I felt this was a terrible way to treat guests. Clean towels and bedding are the basics which you deserve in any hotel especially one in a hot country.
The breakfast consisted of bread, cheese, tomatoes and yoghurt. There was no effort at all to making the breakfast half decent and because the breakfast was so bad we decided against eating at the hotel for tea.
The leaky shower was horrible, one morning the shower was so bad that the maids used our towels to mop up the excess water on the floor.
I had read on Tripadvisor that if you put your towels on the shower floor they would be changed. However, when we got home from a lovely day at the Blue Lagoon, we found that the cleaners had simply hung the towels out to dry. The beds were as hard as sleeping on a pavement outside and we used to wake up with aching bones. The Hotel Leda behind this hotel also had a dreadful noise coming from it every night - a tacky eurovision style disco playing until 3am most mornings.
The hotel had a very cliquey feel to it. Most of the clientele are chavs with the same matching tattoos. The manager wasn’t helpful at all and we got the impression that she would only look after you and change your towels/sheets if you spent a lot of money in the bar during the day and at night. This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in and I would not recommend it to anyone. Think “Fawlty Towers” or a cheap European hostel. There is no way this is a 3* hotel.
On the upside, even although we had a bad experience at this hotel it has certainly not put us off Turkey. The surrounding area is very beautiful and the Blue Lagoon is simply stunning. This is an honest review, stay at the Leytur Hotel at your peril!

This no0w our 9th year & 15th visits holidaying in Turkey and we have staryed in nearly all family orientaded resorts, with this my review is taken in comparison with other hotels and resorts we have visited.

On arrival we stopped outside the hotel but there didn't appear to be the traditional gareish neon flashing facards that normally identify the reception - just what seemed to be a large wrought iron garden gate to what appeared to be a private house (very nice but not expected), the coach driver led us around the side of the 'house' to the bar area. The bar area looked over the pool and 2 blocks which were the accomadations, again no gareish lights or loud music (dump-dump music as the wife calls it). A lady introduced herself as Layla and led us to reception to book us in.

We now know Layla to be the owner of the hotel and she treats everyone like long lost friends ( not in an overpowering way - just pleased to see you again sort of way).
The hotel consists of around 40 rooms and the rooms are of good preportion and very clean, however please note that there are no cooking facilities or fridge/tv etc, the hotel does have a resturaunt and bar food which are reasonable priced.

the walk to the road for the Dolmus is literally only 5 mins and 50 yards but it is a bit on the steep side on an unmade road so those with walking difficulties may be restricted to taxis. the trip into Hisaronu is about 10mins and about 20 mins into Fethiye by dolmus or if you're energetic its about 30 min walk into Hisaronu.

All in all, the Leytur is of good standard for a turkish hotel and has had the same owner for some 16 years, leyla and her Husband eat every night in the hotels resturaunt and from the same menu and at the same times as the guests - this says a lot to me for the reccomedation of the food !!!.

Hisaronu is starting to look tired now with quite a few more empty shops than last year, the shops now sell mostly the same tat and the bars play the same music.

If this is your first trip to the area you won't be dissapointed and you can see why people return year after year after year and remember that you're paying budget prices so don't expect 1st class luxury - the areas a good 2 to 3 star

well first of all if your thinkinkg of going half board then make sure your not fussy cause its a set menue, we didnt go half board but friends of ares did an it was awful they had kebab 3 nights in a run.
if you like gettin dragged up for turkish night then its alright but if you dont then i wouldnt recomend it the belly dancer grabs men and woman up even if they say no (not good for children) even half board have to pay to go.
Everyone says Layla is wonderful and treats you welcoming well she does for the first few days an they its what ever im not botherd and if you dont spend money she snarls you and everythink.
okay so the hotel rooms are nice but very small if theres four of you i say iver get 2 rooms or get the family room which is £30 a night.
The staff are Amazing exspecily ugar and laylas son there always up for a good laugh but when laylas there they cant do anythink fun
if you have already booked it dont think theres no where to go and you have to eat there about five mins down the road there are a few bars a resturents i recomend four seasons its more near hisoronia but its great
i dont fink this hotel is as great as its made out to be but its in a good spot

Hotel Leytur Is situated about 80m uphill from the main Ovacik through road, it has regular dolmus bus service to either Fethiye or Hisaronu and Oludeniz beach. Standing on a hillside giving a beutifull scenic outlook. It only has 40 rooms so it never got busy or noisy, although the hotel further up (the Leda) could be heard on some late nights. The rooms are basic, no TV or fridge, aircon was £25 for the week and the safe a £1 a day . The rooms were cleaned daily with fresh towels provided as required and ours overlooked the lovely clean swimming pool. Overall this provided us with a very relaxed location, creating a good atmosphere for people to mix. The breakfast was typically Turkish, Bread, feta cheese, tomato, boiled eggs, tea, coffee etc. Eating breakfast between 08.00 and 10.00 on the veranda overlooking the scenery was a very, very nice place to be. We only had one other meal at the hotel during our week, this with the ’Turkish’ barbecue night , and we both enjoyed it. Other restaurants , Frier Tucks, 3 cheers and Shine Indian, all very nice with similar prices as the UK. Cheaper food could be found elsewere. Take a travel kettle and some tea/coffee if you need a midnight cuppa.
Prices, 500ml bottle of Efes, standard euro lager was 4 Turkish Lira about £1.63. Average price of main course at the hotel and the restaurants listed above was 20 Tls, about £8.20.
One other thing, we went on a boat trip this departed from Oludeniz pebble beach and cost 20Tls each this included a very poor meal, in the form of three ‘meatballs’ something like cous cous and oddments of a salad. This, I decided made better fish food. The point is when they have you ‘on board’ drinks and other essentials are very expensive, almost airport prices. We had a good day but came ashore at 18.30 feeling we had been fleeced.
All in all a very nice clean base hotel, with nothing but praise from the people we had spoken to, most of which had been there before.
