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
