This is just our opinion: OK I will start with the negative first!,firstly we arrived and were put in Room 909,remember this number if your going there.
You will not want to stay there I can almost guarantee it,it is near Reception and is right next to the drop off point for the coaches and anything else that turns up during the night.
It took the hotel two days to move and we were not alone.
why they cannot make this for late checkouts I do Not know,anyway basically you would have to be a very very heavy sleeper to sleep through the noise and from what we saw no one stayed there long term.
The room we got moved to 215 was OK a bit bigger but fairly dark,but at least it was peaceful compared to 909.
Downside is the walls are paper thin you can here your neighbours and of course you get the door slammers that come back at 3.30am.
Still that wasn't a problem,they are on holiday too.
Food: Was OK a bit bland and after 2weeks became repetitive,we did see reports about salads to die for,think it might have been before these owners took over ,they were nothing special.
The Relax pool was great Adults only,the main pool was good too but a bit noisy for us.
The Turkish bath was very good.
The Staff and waiters were excellent,Reception were good but a bit hit and miss depending who was on,but in general did help eventually.
The grounds were excellent and very well kept ,I think the gardener is very proud of his work and so he should be.
There are plenty of places to hide away and relax.
The Location is very good,Looking towards the Sea its the last Hotel on the left Beach front,approx 100yds to the sea.
Impression overall was :They have excellent staff and a good Location very very nice gardens but the Accommodation could be better and the food selection improved.
Entertainment: Turkish night was the best ive seen at any Hotel,but the rest of the time was so so.
If I had to score out of 10 I would say 6.
Dont get me wrong it is a nice place in a nice Location but does not make 4stars in my Books more 3star.
most of the staff would get 10 out 10,they work really long hours too.
Hisaronu and Ovacik is close by in the hills behind Olu Deniz, surrounded by pine forests and beautiful countryside. These resorts have grown from the popularity of Olu Deniz itself, as when the conservation area made it impossible to build more hotels and apartments by the sea, the hillside villages within easy reach of the beach started to grow. Both resorts are now incredibly popular with British guests with many holidaymakers deciding to settle in the area and there is a wide selection of restaurants, bars and pubs to cater for their tastes.
Hisaronu is the busier of the two villages and most restaurants, shops and bars are centred around one main street, whilst at the top of the village is a weekly market where it can be great fun choosing unusual gifts for those back home.
Ovacik is altogether quieter and more rural with splendid views of the surrounding pine clad mountains. The air here is usually cooler and fresher than at sea level, which can be very welcome at the height of the summer.
Whichever resort you choose, getting between them is very easy as dolmus minibuses run between all three resorts. Alternatively you can walk between the centre of Hisaronu and Ovacik in about 15 minutes.
Sightseeing & Activities
Organised excursions are available such as a trip to Dalyan to see the famous Lycian Rock Tombs, perhaps bathe in the sulphur mud baths or indulge in a boat trip to Butterfly Valley. As well as the usual watersports at the beach, other activities have been developed in the area such as mountain biking, quad biking, horse riding and for the really adventurous paragliding at Olu Deniz giving you stunning views over the lagoon. The area is also wonderful for walking and we recommend a stroll from Hisaranu or Ovacik to the ghost village of Kayakoy, a village abandoned by the Greeks with over 3,000 uninhabited houses

POOL TABLE, TABLE TENNÝS..,
Great views to the village and to the highest mountain 1970m Babadag.Gemiler beach St.Nicholas Island only 7km main town Fethiye 7km.
With a few nights to spare before our Mavi Tur, my husband and I decided to stay a bit off the beaten path. Fethiye and Oludeniz were too large and touristic for our tastes. An internet search and several emails to the manager of the Akkent convinced us this was the place for us. Yildez, the owner, was gracious and helpful even before we booked our stay. She helped us arrange a beautiful tour of the ruins of Tlos and the Saklikent Gorge with no profit for her hotel. Her hotel (more like a bed and breakfast) has very large rooms with balcony/porches that open onto a lovely garden and swimming area. The hotel restaurant is al fresco with good fare. Breakfast was included with the room. Dinners were generous and tasty.
The small staff were very helpful and generous with their time and attention to our needs. We encountered more communication issues in Calis than in Istanbul (not a surprise) but whenever we needed a translator, the staff came through.
Public transportation is very convenient to the hotel, which is necessary since the hotel is not within easy walking distance to the beach or additional restaurants and shops. If you are in Turkey to hit the discos and party, this is not the place for you. If, instead, you are looking for a quiet haven while seeing the sites, Akkent is a splendid choice.
The hotel has a beautiful large garden and pool area. While they are destined to grow up, when we visited the garden was doubling as a jungle for the four resident kittens and their mommy.
The Perdikia is a 3 star hotel with 60 rooms pleasingly laid out villa-style around a swimming pool. One of its best features is its quiet location at the edge of the resort where the noise from the beach-front hotel bars is not intrusive and yet it is still only a 200m walk to the beach. The half-board option proved to be a good choice as the food was of very good quality and if the buffet breakfast does get too repetitive for some then there is always a Full English Breakfast available in any of Oludeniz’s restaurants. The reception staff and waiters were also friendly and helpful though there is a rather gratuitous charge for using the room safe.
The Perdikia has a perfectly good pool but with such a fantastic beach only 200m away I never needed to use it. There are spectacular views of the mountains from the restaurant and from rooms which face the entrance of the hotel.
Despite being a great place for a holiday, the hostels in Fethiye were probably the worst I encountered in Turkey. Eventually after looking at a few different places I settled for the Point. It was in a great central location near to the ruins of an ampitheatre, great for getting Dolmus and walking into town at night.
