Dmitry Petrounin Section editor

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.

    • To know

    • The resort is situated in the Fethiye region of Mugla province; about 45 minutes drive from Dalaman airport and only a few kilometres to the centre of Fethiye (the town). The chic marina village of Göcek is also a short drive away.

    • The 195 rooms at Lykia Botanika are divided into three different categories: standard rooms (95), family rooms (75) and suites (10), each with a pool or garden view. Rooms are fitted with the usual; individual air conditioning, mini bar, balcony/terrace, telephone and safety deposit box however there is a 12 Euro weekly charge to use the latter. The standard rooms are spacious but appear dated and would benefit from renovation. Rooms feature tile floors, pale lilac walls and simple furnishings (including 1 x queen and 1 x single bed), while the smallish bathrooms are not very well lit and are slightly worn around the edges in places. The family rooms meanwhile consist of a standard room connected to an additional room containing two sets of bunk beds (therefore four beds).
    • Although Lykia Botanika is a four-star hotel, bear in mind that Turkish four-star standards are not always compatible with what British guests may expect from such a rating. The resort is an all-inclusive one, with a total of 195 rooms set out on 40,000m² of land. The simple lobby is the gateway to this resort that doesn't try to be something it's not, however the service from some of the front office staff wasn't the most helpful or attentive we experienced.

      The hotel rooms are found throughout seven three-storey blocks - white buildings fringed with bougainvillea and complemented by attractive gardens. Apart from the beach, most of the hotel's facilities are in the one spot, so it is very easy for guests to find their way around.

      A large pool is flanked by plenty of sun loungers, while a small aqua park lies between the pool and the main restaurant. An outdoor stage only steps from the lobby is used for evening animation, and is also surrounded by a handful of small shops selling resort wear and pool toys, etc. On the far side of the pool, the health and wellbeing areas; massage rooms, sauna, a Turkish bath and various relaxation areas are simple and clean although they would benefit from a renovation to refresh their look. Guests may also hire a space with private Jacuzzi, plunge pool and mini Turkish bath.

      Other facilities include a large, well-lit fitness room (during our visit it was in bad shape and "not ready" so we hope that it has since been tended to), ping pong table, and kids' club with shaded play areas and sandpits.
    • The resort operates on an all-inclusive meal plan and there are two restaurants on-site; the main, open buffet restaurant and an à la carte restaurant, plus two snack bars, one poolside and one beachside. The restaurants are situated in the same building; the main restaurant on the ground floor and the à la carte restaurant on the second floor. At the time of our visit, the open-air à la carte restaurant, which serves a fish menu, was not yet in service. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the main restaurant is simply decorated (brick walls, timber ceilings, canary yellow tablecloths) and features a separate room where the buffet stations are found. The variety at lunch is reasonable, with plenty of salads but no hot dishes - some guests may be surprised at their exclusion, even if it makes more sense to eat lighter, cold dishes on a hot summer's day.
    • The beach at Lykia Botanika is a good five to ten minute walk from the main area of the resort. However, the difference is that guests wander down a private trail, taking them through a lush oriental sweet-gum forest. The beach is about 300m long and features dark, pebbly sand and a handful of small trees near the water's edge. There are small waves and its secluded location means it is relatively calm. Underneath a large pergola, neat rows of wooden sun loungers face the sea, overlooking nearby islands. There's a snack bar which transforms into a beach disco at night, while the usual water sports are available (non-motorised are free), as are a range of boat trips and night dives. There is no lifeguard supervision (pool area only).

      • 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.

      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 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.

      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.

      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.

      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...

      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.

      • 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.
