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.

    • To know

    • A 15 minute walk from the centre of Hisaronu (bars, restaurants and shops galore), Nicholas Heights is just under 10 minutes by car from the beaches of Belcekiz and Olu Deniz. Allow 15 minutes to reach the port town of Fethiye and at least an hour for Dalaman Airport.

    • There are 77 rooms divided throughout 7 buildings, built into the hillside on various levels. The buildings themselves contain three levels of accommodation, meaning that those on the top floor need to climb two flights of stairs. Three categories of accommodation exist: standard (ground floor), Jacuzzi suites (first floor) and roof suites (top floor), each with a terrace (standard rooms) or balcony (Jacuzzi and roof suites).

      Standard rooms feature tile floors and simple décor (white walls and crisp white bed linen) topped off with navy blue and orange accents (light fittings and cushions, etc.). The open plan rooms are clean, well-lit and feature a sitting area with sofa bed and huge flat screen television. We loved the very modern black-tiled bathroom complete with enormous shower cubicle for two (double rain shower heads).

      The roof suites are found on the upper level of each block and feature a sloping wooden ceiling and open plan bedroom and living area. They are not as spacious as the Jacuzzi suites but they are clean and bright, like the other room categories at Nicholas Heights. Even if you don't get the huge bathroom with double rain shower, there is a generous balcony offering the best views in the house.

      The Jacuzzi suites (there are 39) were our favourite; bright, immaculate and incredibly spacious, they boast not only sea views but a sunken Jacuzzi in the bedroom. At the entrance is a comfortable living area with access to a furnished balcony, and what is at first glance a 'kitchenette' - however there is no stove or sink making it just a kitchen bench with tea/coffee making facilities, a fridge and an icemaker. The rooms are decorated in creamy neutral shades with touches of bright orange. A huge window curves around the Jacuzzi and provides wonderful views. Meanwhile, the bathrooms are in the same style as those seen in the standard rooms and contain a large shower cubicle with rain shower for two.

      Although the Jacuzzi suites are luxurious and comfortable we did have a few gripes: during our stay there were some problems getting hot water on more than once occasion (shower +Jacuzzi); the large flat screen TV is in the living area, therefore on the other side of the room and not ideal for watching TV in bed; the flimsy curtains let the light flood in every morning (not great for those sleep-ins); not to mention the use of the Jacuzzi at night when those same curtains become practically transparent...
    • The hotel is built into the hillside with Reception, an infinity swimming pool, an alfresco bar/café and a handful of rooms located on the upper terrace. From here, guests are granted plunging views but must go down one level to access other facilities such as the main restaurant, spa and fitness room. There is an additional pool (with swim-up bar) on the lower terrace, accessed by a second set of stairs. The latter contains 229 steps so if you don't fancy the exercise, ask for a room on the upper level, as there are rooms found on each level.

      For those who like to keep active, there is a darkish fitness room with four machines and one tiny window, as well as a tennis court across the road. Prefer to be pampered? The hotel's Bijou Spa is one of the best spas we visited in the region (even more so when you remember that it is a small hotel) with bright and spotless treatment rooms decorated with flowers and sleek, contemporary furnishings. There's also a small private garden for post-treatment relaxation.
    • There are two restaurants and two bars at Nicholas Heights which is a good number considering the hotel's small size. The main restaurant is housed below the upper terrace and is open for a buffet breakfast and dinner à la carte (half-board meal plan). The main restaurant is a somewhat cold place to dine (bright lights, simple aquarium décor); however the service here is excellent, provided by a friendly and enthusiastic wait staff. The choice at dinner is varied but the food itself won't blow you away, while the choice at breakfast is a little disappointing for a four-star hotel. In summer, dinner is served alfresco at the terrace café on the upper deck, where there are beautiful views and a well-stocked bar! The terrace café is also open for light lunch and snacks, while the second bar is found at the pool on the lower terrace.
    • Although there is a public beach at Belcekiz and a popular private beach at Kumburunu, the hotel claims its own beach, known as Nicholas Plaj, in a great spot on the famous 'blue lagoon' of Olu Deniz. While those who go to Kumburunu are forced to hand over at least 10TL (£3.85) as part of their entrance fee and sun bed/parasol hire, hotel guests at Nicholas Plaj do not pay an entrance fee, and only 6TL (£2.30) for beach equipment hire. The sheltered blue lagoon location means that the beach is calm and safe but be aware that it can get very crowded in summer. There's a snack bar nestled under the shade of a few gum trees with a relaxed ambiance and reasonably priced light meals. Nicholas Heights offers its guests a free shuttle bus service, departing at 10:00am and 11:00am and returning at 4:00pm and 5:00pm.
    • The hotel accepts guests aged 16 and over only.
      Nicholas Heights is open between May and November.
      WIFI connection is free in the lobby and on the upper pool deck only.

      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...

      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 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.

      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...

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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
