Very Scenic

Ducking out of the way of Paragliders.

We decided on Turkey this year as there were a few sites we wanted to visit, and Olu Deniz seemed a good base to achieve this. We booked two weeks staying at the Perdikia Hotel thru Thomsons. The resort is heavily sold on its Blue Lagoon, the most photographed place in the Turkey Brochures. You...

“Olu Deniz Sixteen Years On”

published 26/10/2004

Sun, Sea and Lovely People

Mosquitos and Paragliders

What a difference 16 years make? Olu is still and always will be beautiful place and the people are just as friendly, but where there were a few tiny cafes with goats and chickens running about and accommodation resembling the holiday camps of old, there are now numerous cafes, bars, shops and...

I just got back from a two week break in Oludeniz, Turkey, and I can say without a doubt that it is the best holiday I have ever been on. We had such good service from the fabulous staff at the hotel and so much loved the pretty, lively little town and stunning lagoon that we’ve already booked up...

Don't let the fact that Turkey neighbours Iraq put you off visiting this wonderful country. Although Eastern Turkey is best avoided, and despite the fact there have been a few terrorist attacks this year in other parts of the country, Brits are as safe in Oludeniz as in London. Back in early June...

“Turkish Delight”

published 26/02/2001

A perfect Holiday

Too Hot Mid Summer

I holidayed in Ölü Deniz in June 2000, so all costs (in GBP) are based on that time period. Also due to the rate of development there may be more facilities available now, than there were when I visited. Ölü Deniz is situated in South West Tukey. It is a hotel based resort so is dead out of...

My Girlfriend and I went to Olu Deniz in 2008 and had such an amazing time. I was a bit apprehensive and curious of what to expect at first but I think what summed up our opinion was at the end when we said we'd happily go back - not something we usually say generally because we don't like to go...

beautiful scenery, friendly people, cheap prices

lack of infrastucture, mosquitos

Recently there have been a couple of articles in the Scottish press criticising Turkey. This may be political manoeuvring following the murder of a Turkish asylum seeker in Glasgow, but I feel it is unfair not to respond to the negative image portrayed. We holidayed In Olu Deniz this year and I...

“The best beach in Europe.”

published 26/07/2001

100% Sun, sea and sand. Cheap.

The Dolmus crawls back up the mountain.

Olu Deniz. Nestled in an area of outstanding beauty, with Olu Deniz on the beach and Hisaronu on the mountainside looking down over the lagoon. These resorts are about 3klms apart and can be easily reached by Dolmus service. Olu Deniz is one of the most photographed locations in the whole of...

We went in May this year for 2 weeks and stayed at the Montebello hotel at the top of the resort, although as it's a small resort we were still only a 5-10 min walk from the beach. We paid £295 from Manchester for B and B which was a bargain for the quality of the resort. It is quite small and...

Small but still plenty to offer.

Can't think of any.

I have just come back from Olu Deniz, which was my first taste of Turkey - and I loved it. The resort is very small and secluded, surrounded on 3 sides by mountains. It seemed to be based on a sort of H shape with a road going across the top, then down the main street towards the beach with...

Can't think of any.

The number of times I have been to Hisaronu (six) says something about the place. Hisaronu is in the Olu Deniz area and is up in the mountains. The scenery is fabulous. You are surrounded by mountains and pine forests yet only 10 minutes away from Olu Deniz by dolmus. Down at Olu Deniz you can...

“Olu Deniz cool Turkey”

published 29/08/2000

beautiful area, friendly people

building work, getting more expensive

I have been to the Olu Deniz area of Turkey on 2 occasions and find it a relaxing and beautiful area. The Olu Deniz pennisula is an enclosed bay that has a natural beauty of it's own. It is getting popular now so can be quite busy. A walk other the mountains is worth trying but it is a long walk...

I and my girlfriend have just returned from a lovely holiday in the south of Turkey. We've been to Ayvalik (on the Aegean coast of Turkey) first, which was an old settlement by the sea that had spectacular houses made in the 1800s. From there we went to *Oludeniz* (farther south, in Fethiye)...

We visited Sarigerme in Turkey October 2008 and a stop off in Oludeniz was included in an excursion to Fethyia. When we arrived in the town it was clear to see that it was a thriving tourist town, I didn't see many residential areas although we didn't stay long so if we had explored a bit more we...

I have stayed in Olu Deniz many many times and I am astonished at the reviews I have read on this page, Olu Deniz is definately not geared up for Germans, it is a very english resort, There is also plenty to do in Hisonaru and Fethyie (sorry about spellings) As for there being no resteraunts, this is rediculous! Both towns are full of resteraunts and bars. There is also night clubs and many places of interest, to keep everyone happy and busy. I have always found that 2 weeks is not enough time to fit in everything. The turkish people are very friendly and helpful and will willingly assist anyone who needs it. I have stayed in Olu Deniz, near the lagoon and it was beautiful. I have also stayed in Fethiye and Hisonaru and i have really enjoyed the hotels that i have stayed in. I have found the staff and the service to be exceptional.
