I'm thinking of going to Fethiye in September & staying at the Mediteran hotel and I have a few questions, is this a nice hotel, how hot will it be and any recommendations for things to do, places to go/see etc?
hello , have stayed at the mediteran a couple of times and i think its lovely. the dolmus stops outside the hotel if you want to go anywhere. the staff are nice and friendly and always helpful.you will get lovely sea views and its just next to the boatyards which can be interesting to see the boats being built and launched, the market on tuesdays is good and i went to the bus station and went on a trip to sakklikent and tlos which was brill. hope you enjoy it.
Never been to Fethiye or Turkey for that matter. My wife and I are spending three days in Fethiye starting Sept 28. A few questions for those "in the know". Is it possible to rent scooters/motorbikes in Fethiye for purpose of road trips to all destinations up and down coast, for instance to Cesme beach and maybe Marmaris and some of the canyons and ruins? Do we need an international motorcycle license? Finally, any advice on the Ata Park Hotel compared to Yacht Hotel, Yacht Plaza Hotel, and Mediteran Hotel? Outside of price, which might offer the best experience for a couple that wants something in the way of more of a "Turkish" experience than a "tourist" experience?
Thanks for your advice and help.

Hi David and Sydney
Is it possible to rent scooters/motorbikes in Fethiye for purpose of road trips to all destinations up and down coast,
the answer is Yes
for instance to Cesme beach and maybe Marmaris and some of the canyons and ruins?
Cesme beach ( if we are talking the same cesme beach is a little far to fethiye and I dont think that you can ride this far in one day time)
Marmaris is acceptable and you can also visit the near canyons and ruins
I will not suggest you to go to Cesme beach from fethiye .
Do we need an international motorcycle license?
you will need a license but not necessarily the international one .
About Turkish experience:Turkish people prefer hotels in Oludeniz or in Calıs instead of fethiye.
None of the hotels that you've mentioned will give you a "Turkish Experience" as such. But don't be put off booking at any one of them, they're all very good tourist hotels. There are a huge number of traditional Lokantasis, Restaurants and Bars in and around Fethiye where you can savour the real Turkey. ( The further away from the harbour you get, the less expensive, and more traditional, it becomes). A good tip, is to eat in the places that you see Turkish people eating.
Renting motorbikes, scooters, cars and buggies (similar to Honda Pilots) is very easy and reasonably cheap around Fethiye. A full driving licence is all that's required. You'll probably be asked to leave your passport as a deposit. Don't worry about it, it's normal.
You won't need to go very far from Fethiye to see ruins, canyons and other beautiful sights. Going as far as Marmaris will mean that you'll have to spend the best part of a day travelling.
I am thinking of going in June. I have been to Istanbul and also the west coast in June and there were NO mobs of tourists. Is all of Turkey this way in June?
Where is the best place to stay for under $125 for two people? I would like something that is not a party place and also not too overrun with children but have a charming atmosphere if there is such a place.
hello, you could try the hotel mediteran, have stayed there a couple of times and its quite nice, basic but ok, its about half hour s walk from the town or a dolmus away, situated next to the boat yards , can be fun to watch them at work and you get lovely sea views.
Fethiye is a lovely uncommercial town, without the "mobs" but still with plenty to see & do. A 12 islands day cruise around the gulf of Fethiye is a "must do" as is a visit to arguably the most famous beach in Turkey at Olu Deniz about 30 mins away by local dolmus. The majority of tourists in the area are Brits, so June, whilst busy is one of the quieter months, being outside the main UK school holidays.
As for places to stay, I would highly recommend the Yacht Plaza Hotel (also known as Yeni Yacht). It's about a 5 minute walk to the old town (paspatur) area - 10 minutes back as there's a steepish hill! It has its own marina, pool restaurant & bar; Banu, Batu, Mustafa & Ali have become as family - even though I now own a place locally, I always go & visit them & see the same guests year after year! Prices are in the region of £30 per night inc breakfast for double / twin room.
