Amy Adejokun Section editor

A marina location, yes, but typical 'resort' it is not. Ece Saray Marina and Resort is a relatively new hotel (built in 2002) yet quite different to the typical beach holiday offering in Dalaman. A hotel rather than a resort, there are no poolside games, beach animation or a large selection of restaurants to choose from; instead there is but one swimming pool, one restaurant...and no beach. Due to the hotel's majority older clientele and the absence of entertainment/activities, Ece Saray Marina and Resort is suited to those looking for peace and quiet.

    Location 10.0 /10

    Overlooking the marina, Ece Saray Marina and Resort is in the heart of Fethiye and approximately 45 minutes drive from Dalaman Airport.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    Of the 48 rooms at Ece Saray, 34 of those are standard and the remainder are luxury suites. There are three floors of accommodation, including those rooms on the ground floor. Standard rooms measure around 24m˛ and feature a king-size bed and simple furnishings. Neutral shades can be seen from the carpets to the bed linen and are interspersed with touches of mustard and burgundy. Despite the classic, inoffensive decor, the rooms appear somewhat dated and therefore lack charm. Rooms feature 'French balconies' (doors open onto a railing rather than a traditional balcony one can step out on to). The bathrooms meanwhile are a decent size and feature a marble vanity. The suites are decorated in the same style but are larger due to the addition of a separate living area (with sofa bed). Suite bathrooms also contain a Jacuzzi. As mentioned earlier, it should be noted that we were not permitted to take any photos at this hotel; all photos shown are the hotel's own promotional material.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The hotel consists of a single building block with an attractive and elegant facade. Inside, a spacious and chic lobby greets guests, decorated with mosaic and stained glass features. There is a small seating area and lobby bar towards the rear. Outdoors there is a patch of manicured lawn but not much by the way of gardens. Directly in front of the hotel guests will find the jetty bar with great views of the marina. Tacked on to the sides of the jetty are nets for sunbathing and relaxing at the water's edge (actually, suspended over the water), however probably not best to actually swim at the marina! Swimming can be done at the hotel's outdoor pool, a few steps away; for a small hotel it is quite large (compensation for lack of beach?) and is flanked by wooden sun loungers and cream-coloured parasols. There is also a Jacuzzi and outdoor bar. Next door to the swimming pool is the hotel spa with sauna and Turkish bath (both free of charge), and a handful of massage rooms decorated with pretty wallpaper and tea lights. There is also a large and bright fitness room well-equipped with a variety of machines and flat screen televisions.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    In the main building on the top floor, the terrace restaurant is used to serve breakfast only. Its large windows allow for lots of light and panoramic views of the hundreds of yachts bobbing in the harbour. For lunch and dinner, the main restaurant is situated at the edge of the property and serves international cuisine. Those guests on the half board meal plan can choose from a fixed menu or open buffet. There is indoor seating which is used only in winter time; otherwise, seating is outside on the boardwalk overlooking the marina. There is also a jetty bar at the front of the hotel which is open from 4:00pm until 1:00am.

    Beach

    Ece Saray Marina and Resort is situated, as its name suggests, at the marina therefore there is no beach within walking distance of the hotel.

    To know

    Unlike many other hotels in the region, the Ece Saray Marina and Resort is open all year round.

    There is no beach in the immediate vicinity (only a port, not ideal for swimming), swimming is in the hotel pool only.

    It should be noted that we were not permitted to take any photos at this hotel; all photos shown are the hotel's own promotional material.

      Given its location, Green Anatolia is a good choice for holidaymakers who wish to hide away in a quiet part of town, all whilst being within easy reach of a town centre. Tucked away on a hillside in Ovacik and overlooking Hisaronu, the Green Anatolia is a charming, family-owned four-star hotel. There are improvements to be made however, notably with the standard of accommodation...

      • Location 4.0

      Miles away from other resorts (and therefore other tourists), the "five star holiday village" Hillside Beach Club enjoys a privileged position nestled, as its name suggests, on a hillside that borders a secluded cove. The resort offers excellent entertainment and activity options, whether you're on holiday with the family, friends or with your other half. Hillside is modern and well-maintained (no cheesy décor) which may explain why it's a cut above the rest.

      Do you want everything from a resort? Do you want 24 hour food and drink and the possibility of undertaking any activity your heart desires at almost any time of the day? Lykia World might be the place for you if you're not fussed by mind-boggingly enormous resorts. Lykia World is especially great for any holidaymakers who like to keep active with sports and other fitness activites.

      Last renovated in 2010, Perdikia Hill is an attractive four-star property situated on a hill overlooking Ovacik and Hisaronu. The resort consists of self-catering apartments that attract a largely British clientele and is best suited to those who are looking for peace and quiet due to its slightly isolated location. If you've come for the beach be aware that you'll definitely need wheels to get there...

      An excellent three-star hotel with a wide range of facilities, Asena Village was renovated in 2011. It is a good choice for families and anybody who doesn't mind that their hotel is not beachfront. If it wasn't for the very basic (but clean) rooms, it also probably deserves a fourth star going by the standard of some other "four star" and even "five star" resorts in the area...

      A large beach resort with plenty of activities on offer, Majesty Tuana Club and Park is suited to families and groups looking for constant entertainment. However, as the property is split into three mini-resorts each with its own facilities, it is also possible for holidaymakers to escape the crowds for some peace and quiet.

      A simple, no fuss beach resort, the Lykia Botanika Beach & Fun Club is situated in a relatively calm corner of Fethiye and is one of the few resorts within an hour's drive of Dalaman airport. With 75 family rooms, families are well accommodated here, however the rooms we visited look somewhat tired and are in need of a nip and tuck. Guests will find the usual holiday resort facilities at this medium-sized hotel.

      With great views of the Aegean Sea, Nicholas Heights is a great find in a quiet area of Hisaronu. Built in 2007, this four-star hotel is a relatively new property and boasts a high standard of accommodation. However, the views from the hillside mean you are a short drive (not walk) from the beach. This is a good choice for couples who are looking for a tranquil spot to escape to, or anyone with a dislike for giant beach resorts.

      • Location 3.0

      The drive itself to Letoonia is worth it, for its location on the outskirts of Fethiye means you'll drive along a lovely stretch of coastline boasting fantastic views. The resort itself is a massive complex perched on a peninsula with something for everybody so there's no need to worry about the kids getting bored. Accommodation and facilities are nestled in a lush garden setting however the steep and winding paths may prove bothersome for some guests. This is a popular resort with both British and Russian guests but overall, this is a great option for active holidaymakers.
