We stayed in the Seril 2 again for 1 week from 18/05/07. This was our third visit at this hotel during May time - we like it because although the weather is fantastic (in the 30's), it is not as opressive as in July/August when we used to stay when our sons were still at school. We always stayed in different hotels in Calis, until we were recommend to stay at the Seril 2 and we must say its an absolute gem!
Reception is manned 24/7, and it's lovely to know that "Mr. Bean" will be there in the small hours when you arrive to show you to your room and help with the luggage.
The hotel is owned by 2 sisters - Esra who mainly looks after the Seril 2 and her sister, Eser, who looks after the Seril 1 appartments at the other end of Calis.
Hotel is superbly situated being less than a 5 min walk from Calis Beach, where you can find many bars and restaurants with nightlife which can continue late into the night. It is so nice to have a meal at the beach watching the sunset, then when you've had enough and want to go to bed, walk back to the hotel where it is just far enough away not to be too bothered by all the music etc.
All the staff were fantastic. Never hastling you, but always attentive if you wanted a drink etc. All prices for food and drink are displayed behind the bar and you can get a 3 course meal there for about £5 per head. We have NEVER had a wrong bill.
Accomodation is basic but clean. Each room is cleaned daily with clean linen and towels. Pool cleaned every morning.
Each floor has a little "lounge" area with a 3 piece suite. Very cool and quiet, so if you want a little time to yourself to read, you can always go there. There is also another "lounge" area by the reception, with doors leading out to the poolside.
The hotel attracts many return guests, so you can bump into guests you may have met the year before. (we can't all be wrong about this hotel!!!) It is very friendly and family orientated and has a small kiddies play area to one end of the "L" shaped pool with grass, swings and a see-saw.
They do have 2 boxer dogs - look a bit scary at first - but they are gentle giants. Simba (with tail) is always around and his uncle (Rambo - tail docked) comes and goes as he pleases. They are very well loved and looked after. I would not be concerned about taking young children there because of the dogs, but I would obviously keep an eye on them.
Getting around is also very easy. You can catch the local bus (dolmus) at the end of the road into Fethiye where you get off at the Mosque where you can get connecting buses to Hisaranou (shopping) or Olu Deniz (superb beach with Blue Lagoon).
We will definately return to the Seril 2 again next year, but probably in a much larger family group. Would recommend this hotel for all age groups. If you want to go there, check out their website for their contact details on how to book. We booked through Advisor Travel, but previously we used Goldtrail Travel. Enjoy!!!!!
