Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 4.0 /10

    The resort is tucked away in verdant pine forests only a few miles from Fethiye town centre, and about an hour's drive from Dalaman International Airport.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    There are 330 rooms at Hillside, housed in 8 blocks found on either side of the main areas. Built into the hillside, the higher up the accommodation the better the view, even if the resort assures guests that 90% of rooms boast sea views. Two outdoor elevators provide access to the upper level rooms (thankfully as the climb to rooms at the top is steep and high) however, with over 330 rooms, two elevators are probably not enough. There are five room categories, known simply as A, B, C, D and E type.

    A and B type rooms are the standard room and standard family room respectively. The difference is that B-type rooms consist of a second bedroom and open-air patio. Rooms are modern thanks to their simple but tasteful decor. Comfortable, spacious and clean, they also benefit from lots of light. B-type rooms feature sliding glass doors which open on to the terrace, which doubles as a living room (and from where the bathroom and second bedroom are accessed). A-type rooms do not feature an additional bedroom, or an open-air patio. C-type rooms are those located on the ground floor and do not come with a balcony.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Hillside is not your typical beach resort - at first glance it is, but look closer and you'll find excellent standards everywhere; from accommodation and facilities, to food and drink and service in general. It is also quite compact, main facilities are easily accessible at the centre of the resort and from most areas of the resort there are lovely views of the surrounding mountains, cliffs and pine forests.

    There are plenty of entertainment options at Hillside, whether you want an active holiday, or prefer to chill out at the spa or on the beach. There are four tennis courts overlooked by a well-equipped gym, plus an all-day program of various sports and fitness activities, some hosted in Studio One (dance classes etc.), others outdoors. Next to the studio, the amphitheatre features nightly entertainment from the in-house animation team. A large pool is found near the water's edge, and is where most daytime animation takes place. Other activities include arts and crafts workshops (for all ages), Turkish language lessons and post-evening entertainment beach parties. However, we were surprised that for such a large resort there was only one swimming pool (excluding the wading pools at the kids' club). Hillside compensates with three private beaches.

    For the children, the kids' club facility is excellent, with spacious play areas, numerous kids' pools, waterslides and activity areas. On top of that, there are several animators and lifeguards on duty at any one time, plus a security door at the kids' club entrance. Unlike some other resorts, the kids' club is open all day; the kids are taken to lunch so that parents don't have to collect their little ones until the end of the day should they choose. The weekly jumping castle is especially popular.

    For those who need to relax, there are not one but two spas on-site; the Sandaspa day spa located near the pool (with the usual amenities for classic therapies and treatments) plus the fantastic Sandaspa Nature, promoting a range of Eastern therapies. The best thing is its setting; hidden away in the forest, the spa is like a secret, beautifully decorated tree house offering the most indulgent of treatments...

    Food and drink 9.20 /10

    The quality of food and beverage at Hillside Beach Club is well above average. The resort operates a 'full board plus' meal plan which includes all meals and some drinks (e.g.: soft drinks, bottled water, beer and table wine at lunch and dinner). Besides the main buffet restaurant, there are two à la carte restaurants on-site. Like the rest of the resort, the main restaurant boasts contemporary decor but also features large buffet areas, high ceilings and indoor and outdoor seating, the latter with sea views. At peak times however, guests could experience long waits at the buffet but take comfort in the fact that the food is fresh and delicious. From the salads to the desserts, we certainly appreciated the mountains of choice.

    Meanwhile, the Pasha on the Bay restaurant serves a late, light breakfast and à la carte dinner daily. Its all-white décor, chill-out music and lounge ambiance evoke an Ibiza vibe. The beach bar serves snacks throughout the day but in the evenings becomes an à la carte Italian restaurant. Several bars are scattered throughout the resort but drinks are not included at any of them.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    Beach-lovers will love it here. The resort's secluded location means it can claim not one but three private beaches, two of which are 'quiet' beaches. The main beach is situated at the heart of the resort and is where a lot of activity takes place. Here the beach is gravelly and pebbly rather than sandy however it boasts 'blue flag' status (awarded for cleanliness and water quality). You'll find all the usual facilities at each beach. Beach-goers can also head to the diving pontoon, play a game of beach volleyball nearby, or swim laps in the sea (there is a roped off section of 315m).

    The remaining two beaches, 'Silent' and 'Serenity' are reached by boardwalk after 3 and 10 minutes, respectively. A boat service is provided to Serenity Beach for those who can't be bothered with the stroll. On the way to Silent Beach, guests also have use of two pontoons set up with beach mattresses, etc. Silent Beach is an adults-only beach situated a few steps away from the Sandaspa Nature (no mobile phones allowed). There are some rocks dotted below the surface so bathers should exercise caution or think about wearing protective footwear. Sun beds are arranged on elevated deck areas, as well as at the water's edge.

    There is a wide range of water sports available; all non-motorised sports are included (and with licence, if applicable). Lifeguard supervision is provided at the main beach only.

    Hillside Beach Club is open between the end of April and the end of October.

      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...

      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 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.

      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...

      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.

      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.

      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...

      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.
