“Lovely little hotel”
Reviewed 4 October 2010

Lovely litte hotel perfect for relaxing getaway in the lovely resort of Ovacik.Lots of things to do if you want but was also bliss to jst relax with the mountains behind us. Booked with Holidaymate and can genuinely say was thoroughly impressed. Their customer service pre and after sale was second to none will definitely be travelling with them again.

Stayed July 2010, travelled as a couple

We loved this hotel - so much so we're already talking about going back next year. Hotel itself is very clean and well presented, a nice sized pool and rooms were cleaned every day to a high standard. We stayed in one of the standard rooms which have everything you need (I think air con is extra but we didn't find we needed it - being in the mountains it is a bit cooler at night) but you can upgrade for around £5 a day to the deluxe rooms which were built last year. The staff are extremely helpful, friendly and can't do enough for you.

The nearest dolmus stop is about a 5-10 minute walk which takes you into Olu Deniz in around 10-15 minutes. Fetiye is also worth a visit. The Dalyan river cruise was great and highly recommended.

Thanks Celay for making our holiday one to remember!

This was our first trip to Turkey. The plan was to chill out for a week, just relaxing in the sun by the pool. We chose Celay because it's not in one of the main tourist areas that way there wasn't going to be loud music and massively drunken people treating us to karaoke at 3am. The celay is a good spot for this. It has a good sized pool, nice bar and the resturant is good too. Ok the breakfast is is a basic fruit and coffee type thing, if you want something more you can pay for a fry up that will cost you a couple of quid. There are plenty of other restaurants within 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel so you don't have to catch the bus if you fancy a change. Jimmy's resturant was close and good.

Buses run amazingly often are air-conditioned and are very cheap. The walk to the bus stop takes around five minutes. This will take you in olu deniz in around 15 minutes.

The staff were really nice, no one was pushy and seemed to be enjoying their job.

We upgraded to the new luxury room, this cost £10 a day and gives you aircon, a safe and a tv. The rooms are finished to a great standard for the price.

Have been going to Hisaronu/Olu Deniz for the last 8 years once or twice a year and this is best hotel I have stayed in. We upgraded to a deluxe room which was well worth it -Large and airy with fabulous bathroom (great power shower), always spotlessly cleaned when we returned in the afternoon. Aircon included (this is always an extra charge in 3* in Turkey), with flat screen tv (never had that before)! and safe in the room (saved a lot of "tooing and froeing" to reception). Only rated the sleep quality as very good, as a couple of nights we were disturbed by some very inconsiderate noisy neighbours (why are they always drunk)!! as the accoustics in the new block are very "echoey"

Great, large pool with plenty of sunbeds - hotel was full but still never had a problem getting one. The ones in the best positions (i.e. sun from am to pm) always went first and some people did put their towels on these so they could go shopping in the morning and come back to the best spots in the afternoon. But that's ok if they don't turn up after breakfast, fold their towels nice and tidy and leave somewhere where they won't get wet for them to collect later in the day - simple!!

Half Board was okay - nothing spectactular (don't expect "masterchef") - but always very tasty and portions big enough.

Yes it was a bit of a walk to Hisaronu - If you want to be in the centre of the bright lights and all that goes with it - loud clubs, loud bars, loud music, lairy people, falling over at 4am - the Celay won't be for you but for us it was perfect - far enough away that we didn't
have to experience Hisaronu even if we didn't want too! We did walk into town a few times (it's downhill) but got a taxi back!

The Owners and staff at the Celay were the most professional, courteous, polite and well behaved I have ever come across in Turkey - absolutely first class - Orhan and Ondur/Ernie - you are a credit to the Celay, keep up the good work - Thankyou!

We had a great week and will definately stay at the Celay again. For those people who complained that the owners/staff never waved them goodbye at the end of their stay - Would you expect this from a hotel in UK? - thought not!

The Celey Hotel itself is really nice, couldnt fault it at all. The staff were really nice and friendly, nothing was to much trouble. We went for 2 weeks half board and i have got to say the food was excellent, the service could have been a little quicker as the evening meal started between 8 and 10pm we got down for 8pm and it was 9:45 by the time we was coming out. i would have prefered it to have started around 7pm (hey but you cant have everything can you) The worse thing about the Celey Hotel was its location, its out in the mountains and up a very steep hill, there was no dolmus (bus) stop outside the hotel so you had to walk for about 15-20 mins down the hill to the main road to catch one. Someone has put on their review that it only takes 20 mins walk to Hisaronu....take it from me that is completely untrue, we tried it the first night we got there and it took us a good 45-50 mins walk (NEVER AGAIN) So if you have walking difficulties i wouldnt bother with this hotel unless you take plenty of money for taxi's which we ended up using for the rest of our stay.

Just got back from a lovely relaxing holiday, the Celay is worth going to, its clean, quieter than most hotels ive been in and clean. The staff are really friendly but not in your face, and love to have a laugh and a joke with you. There was a couple who brought there problems with them which did wind us up a bit, but its not the fault of the hotel.
I agree with the rest of the comments from this months reviews. I think Jalal and Ayten have got it made. Hope I spelt your names correct! If your reading this (Dave Evans) ive lost your details, hope you still have ours. x

Thank you for a special holiday. Miss you lots. x love Julie 106.
