  • Best holiday ever


    This holiday is amazing. The hotel is well quiet and nice to chill out in, the town ovacik is amazing and if you want to have some excitment do it here at night, there are loads of clubs and cocktail bars open till 7am serving cheap cocktails and cheep beer. Then you can go back to the quiet family run hotel to chill out by the pool side. weather is beautiful and always hot, with a breeze coming over the mountain to cool you down. The place is ran by some lovely people who are so friendly. My mum was in hospital during our stay and they visited her in hospital, they are just such nice people. They do have two dogs there who are so cute and friendly pets, they were rescued by the owners, but if you dont like dogs then maybe dont go. The bar is realy good, i became very good friends with the bar dude ohran, and the rooms are so comfertable and they even make patterns and stuff with the towels on the bed :) there is lots to do in this area, micro lighting, paragliding,m parasailing etc. if u wan to camp for a bit there is a beautiful island nearby with loads of turkish hippies so for students it would be great witht eh campfires and the pot. but it is also great for the family on a crusing trip to the many islands. my advice on these is

  • All may not be what it seems from the travel broch


    Most patrons, during our stay, appeared to be content to spend their days by the hotel pool, or possibly to partake in the occasional organised outing by the package holiday company. That, quite naturally, is their privilege, but we checked prices locally in Hisoranu for these very same excursions and were astonished to be quoted up to 1/3 of what 'Jewel in the Crown’, for example, were asking.
    Furthermore, when we were asked to settle our bill for the additional £3 per day per room air-conditioning (which automatically turned itself off each time we left our rooms), the exchange rate offered for sterling traveller’s cheques was extortionate.
    Although any issues that we had were usually attended to promptly enough by the management, our own perception of the couple who own the hotel was that they were generally quite surly and uncommunicative.
    Upon our arrival, we had most of our luggage carried by staff to our rooms at the far end of the premises. Upon our departure, the same staff merely leant against the poolside bar and watched us as we each dragged a large suitcase back to Reception (even our struggling 9-year old daughter was totally ignored). On our final day, we had to be up at 6-00am in order to pack for a 7-30am departure. At 5-02 am, the power went off – only to come back on at 7-23am. We were forced to pack in total darkness. No-one at all came to our rooms to explain or to assist us and our phone calls to Reception were consistently ignored. As we walked out to our transit bus, the owner’s wife appeared to have been aware of our departure, as she was stood by the door. No apologies were offered to us, indeed, not a word was said by her – not even Farewell!
    For those of you on a budget and not deliberately seeking total isolation from civilisation (and most of us are in that category), far better value is available elsewhere. Try, for example, the much smaller ‘Friendly Hotel’.

    Unique Quality: Other reviews about this hotel are generally accurate enough in what they say, but these, of course, are based merely on personal perceptions and experiences.
    The main redeeming feature of the Celay is the large size of its pool, but this is offset by other factors which might suggest that there is, for many, much better value for money locally available elsewhere. Yes, the Celay certainly is clean and tidy, with rooms being serviced every day, but for most guests the hotel had a virtual monopoly on where it is possible to eat and drink and it is well aware of this fact. Poolside bar and hotel restaurant prices were, we discovered, far higher than anywhere else in the area, albeit admittedly still slightly cheaper than in the UK.

    Directions: Whatever you do, don't fly with SardineAir - sorry, Monarch!

  • A little piece of heaven


    We have just spent a week at the Celay Hotel on half board basis. Although there is not a choice of food on the daily buffet the quality of the food was excellent. The selection of salads were amazing. The owners and staff were extremely friendly though "not in your face" and the swimming pool was to die for. The Celay Hotel is about 4 km from Olu Deniz but it was so hot in Olu Deniz we were really glad to be able to return to our hotel and the cooling mountain breeze (saying that the temperature there was still way up int the 30's). I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to unwind but perhaps would like the advantage of the occasional evening out in Hisaronou or Olu Deniz.

    Unique Quality: Lovely views of the surrounding mountains. Stunning swimming pool, good food and good company. Spotlessly clean, what more could you want.

    Directions: Mountain setting 4 km from Olu Deniz

Turkish Delight

by mymannsmilie about Celay Hotel

Hotel staff are always up for a laugh are friendly and very helpful,. Cannot fault staff from maid to chef, waiters to bar staff, they were all fantastic and they helped to make our stay one of the best holidays we have had.

The Bagadad mountain that stands over the hotel is really fantastic take binoculars as the tandem paragliders take off from it.

The apartments are all very spacious and clean. Cleanliness is very important to the owners as well as to all the staff. The food could not be more delicious looking with so much care and attention to presentation.

The pool was spotless as was the pool bar and sunbathing areas.

Facilities include a beach volley area, childrens pool and playground, turkish garden seating area, table tennis and football game, weekly BBQ/Turkish night alternate.

Once you have been to this hotel you will want to go back again and again. Great view of Mount Bagadad, Large pool, large meals, great staff, warm very friendly place to be.

Celay Hotel, Ovacik, Turkey

"Celay Hotel"

We travelled to Turkey from Manchester and arrived at the hotel to be welcomed by both owners Ayten and Celal who were a lovely friendly couple with an always welcoming smile. We were shown to a good sized apartment with a spacious terrace on ground floor overlooking the children's pool as well as the larger pool. The pool side bar was to our left as we stood on the terrace. We had booked half-board so when we had unpacked we were shown to the restaurant where we were served our four course evening meal of soup, followed by meze, followed by meat-balls, rice and chips, our final course being melon, the meal was large and very filling. Having had a long day travelling firstly to the airport, flight then another hour and half to the hotel we were very exhausted so retired to our apartment for a good nights sleep. We awoke early to the lads cleaning the bar and pool area very quietly but as we had retired so early any noise and sunlight would of awokened us. Breakfast started at 8 am so we were quite ready for a good breakfast to start the day we found the breakfast to be different to our usual continental breakfast it was in fact typical turkish breakfast hard boiled eggs, tomato, cucumber, bread, jam, a processed type of cheese and a feta cheese and melon this was on offer every morning with coffee and tea. After just 3 days i was gagging for a bowl of cornflakes or a slice of toast even a glass of fresh juice. After breakfast we met our rep from Vision who called his-self bloody sexy gorgeous and although he wasn't a bad looking chap BSG for short wasn't exactly the right title we thought Pushy little git suited him more. We made good friends with several of the other guests and settled around the pool for some serious sunbathing which we did for just 2 days after that it just got too hot to sit in. Sitting around the pool going in for a quick dip to cool off when needed we had extraordinary views of Bagadad mountain where there were tandem paragliders taking off and landing at nearby Olu deniz beach. We walked in to Hisaronu on the Monday morning to see the local market unfortunately I hadn't realised how closed in the markets in Turkey were so after a quick flick through the main drag we were off unfortunately not looking at anything other than an exit. A large milkshake turned out to be icecream with chocolate chips in it which was quite entertaining trying to suck them through a thin straw, definately thicker than a MacD's. Walking into Hisaronu seemed quite a long stroll in full heat, about 30 mins, but was really lovely and slightly cooler by 7 pm, which we did later in the week. Dolmus would of taken 10 mins we preferred to stroll.

"Fethiye Market and 6 Island boat trip"

The Tuesday morning was to be an early start as we had booked the Fethiye Market and 6 Island boat trip with lunch included. A coach arrived to collect ourselves and two other couples from our hotel and we were off to the market that I was dreading because of the previous days experience, but to my delight it was a lot more open and mega huge whereas the Hisaronu market was smaller the aisles were also smaller and with clothing and other goods hanging down from the tent covering this had brought on my phobias, in Fethiye it was next to a canal that ran down to the harbour thus seeming more open. Having purchased some shorts for gus £6 a pair of (copy)Gucci sunglasses for myself at just £6 and some fresh fruit we headed off to the harbour, by then the market had began to get much busier. We had a slow stroll then went to the coach park for our 6 Island boat trip, Our coach party all aboard, and the crew were very friendly, we headed out to the Islands, unfortunately we were not told the names of most of the islands, but having had the sails up for a cut across the water, several lovely islands were visited where you could have a nice swim or stay on the boat topping up your tan if desired and a good lunch was included. We returned back to our hotel about 7pm and had a good shower before our evening meal.
