We arrived in Turkey on the afternoon of 6th June 13 to be met at the airport by the taxi we had booked from Fethiye airport transfers (£35 each way, very cheap considering others charge £50 each way). A most enjoyable ride to Olu, cold water provided, a smooth driven journey which was repeated on the return a week later, and what a week it was.
We were welcomed warmly at the hotel and george carried our bags to our room (410) and it was perfect, a nice double bed, a lovely balcony with a nice view over the pool. No noise on an evening from the bar, not that it was too noisy even when you were sat in it. The music was reasonable, not too loud and you could certainly hear yourself speak which can not be said of some other bars/restaurants in the resort, butr it certainly did not spoil our enjoyment.
The Karbel Sun was all we could have wished for, not too big or noisy, minimal children although this may alter in the british school holiday period. I like children, just not too many at one time, lol.
All tbhe staff were happy and did all they could to help and make the stay enjoyable. We would certainly go back there.
We booked trips with Focus with whom I have booked with in the past. Happy cheerful staff and you get what it says on the tin. My partner went paragliding ( I have done it before, and I wanted to see my partners face when she landed). She loved it and would have gone straight back up, I persuaded her an alcoholic drink was a better idea!!
The sunset cruise, hmmm, well it was certainly an experience we will talk about for as long as we go on holiday, it wasnt the fault of Focus or other agencies that organised the cruises that the weather or more specifically , the sea was lets say atad rough on the evening of the cruise and especially when we came back at 23.30, getting off the boat was somewhat interesting andsome may say hair raising, but we survived, we had fun and more alcohol to talk about it and eventually laugh, for a fiver dont be put off, but personally id rather fight a tiger than go again!
Now the next day was the river boat trip from Dalyan which was totally different and was fabulous, the mud bath was hilarious and the trip up the river to the beach where we first saw the turtles was pretty cool. We arrived back at the hotel later in the evening having had a great time and we bought the photos which for £20 was a bargain.
My partner is Gluten intolerant (gluten free basically) and we had a card printed in Turkish explaining this. The result was brilliant, every meal she ate was wonderful, the chef/staff in all the places we ate saw the card and ensured that all food ordered was suitable for my partner to eat and we ate out every night as we were on a BnB basis at the hotel. Cant be faulted, she was happy wehich means I was happy.
All in all the holiday, including hotel, food, trips, transfers were all superb and we will, not would return there, hopefully sometime soon, as I am ready for another holiday now!!
