19 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"We have been going to Calis Resort for three years and have always stayed in another hotel.Due to last minute booking we booked for the Mutlu. The hotel is situated in a prime location which has fantastic sea views and a very warm breeze that extends through the bar to the pool area. All staff are so very friendly and welcoming their main aim is to ensure you have a good holiday nothing is to much.Whoever owns this hotel should appreciate the staff as they are the heart and soul of this hotel, Aylum Tan and all the hotel staff thank you for a great holiday.We will be back. For anyone reading this review don't hesitate book the Mutlu you will not be disappointed. "

You can't do better
"This is a very lovely, small hotel situated at the 'quieter' end of Calis Beach and situated on the seafront. There have been very recent improvements to the dining and bar areas with the addition of improved seating. The hotel is primarily B&B although evening meals are available. Meals and a wide selection of snacks are available throughout the day. Not to forget the 'domestic and kitchen staff, the three people who make this place 'work' are Eylem. I don't know exactly what her Job Title or Description is but she is magnificent. She is here there and everywhere, checking and making sure that the high standards are maintained. Nothing is too much trouble for her. She is friendly, bubbly and a wonderful advert for the Hotel and the Turkish people. She is more than ably assisted by Tan and Husseyn who work tirelessly in the dining area and bar at night. The rooms are equipped with TV and Aircon (Fridge & Safe on request for a small charge). It is hard to find fault with The Mutlu but I must say that the beds are very hard. Calis Beach itself has many restaurants serving traditional Turkish fayre and there are plenty of alternatives available. River Taxi to Fethiye (8TL return) and not forgetting Calis Market (2TL by Dolmus) I couldn't recommend this Hotel any higher. "

Excellent hotel, location and everything.....
"This hotel was spotlessly clean in all areas, which is one thing I am alway paranoid about. It's location is right on the beach not far at all from the restaurants and bars but far enough away to be peaceful. The pool area and garden is beautifully maintained and clean. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate in going back to this hotel, certainly if I went back to Callis Beach I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The sea was a bit murky but very warm. This resort seems to be more breezy than it's neighbouring Fethiye, Oludeniz and Hisoruno, which made it far more pleasant during June when the temperatures were in the 40's."

Great Hotel and Resort
"We have been to the Hotel Mutlu for the past 2 years and we are booked in to come again in August 2009. The Hotel is second to none and in a great location. I don't think there is anything I can fault about the hotel - the rooms are always spotless, the breakfast is great. We have only had good experiences here. We always holiday somewhere else in the world but once a year we always come back to Turkey - and especially to Calis Beach - we have been for about 10 years altogether staying at other hotels but this is by far the best. We are looking forward to our holiday again this year."

Location, Location, Location!!
"Hotel Mutlu is situated on the beach and definately the best hotel on the strip. Grounds and pool are excellent, well kept and pretty, plenty of sun beds and brollies available but on some days when it was busy not as much room as the garden is small. All the Staff helpful and friendly but surprised by the owners of the hotel were very rude and didn't speak or smile at any resident for the whole two weeks we were there. The hotel bedrooms were very basic and initially I was disapointed that the bedspread had a hole in it and was a little tired looking however, our room and bathroom were kept very clean Air con worked fantastically. . Our room overlooked a large garden, could just about see the sea but balcony very small and difficult for both of us to sit on it at the same time. Room was quite cool as sun on the other side of the building all day but views from the other side more scenic. Lunch time food at Mutlu good never ate there in the evening though. Breakfast very very basic and apart from the standard water melon no other fruit available. Dispite this, breakfast served outside overlooking beach which is lovely. Avoid the weekly BBQ as food disappointing and there is no entertainment whatsoever. Plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. SAT restaurant is well worth a visit located at the end of Chalis beach and on stilts overlooking Fetiye. Georges and Chalis beach restaurant. also worth a visit good food at reasonable prices. Sunsets at Chalis beach are absolutely beautiful. Plenty of boat trips to choose from we tried two island hoping ones but the one organised by the tour operator was the best as not as many people on it was organised better. A trip to the blue lagoon at Olu Deniz worth a visit we thought it was very busy though and sun beds on top on the other and it was very hot the day we went so I suggest you find somewhere with a bit of shade. More sun bed room at Sugar beach at Olu Deniz also worth a visit, waiters on hand to deliver your drinks, cocktails and food to you at no extra charge so no need to more for the day unless for a dip in the lagoon. If going to the Markets go either very very early in the moring (opens at 8am) or late in the evening. By 10:30am in July/Aug too hot and uncomfortable to shop. Definately recommed the fish market in Fetiye where you can buy fresh fish or seafood and then take it to one of the fish market restaurants and have it cooked as you like it. All in all, a good hotel not luxury and basic facilities, resort and location excellent for a relaxing quiet beach holiday."

perfectly situated, clean and great staff
"we had a one week stay at the Hotel Mutlu and were impressed by the friendly and helpful staff. The location was excellent with local restaurants, shops and amazing sunsets. The Mutlu is perfectly situated with the shingle beach on the doorstep. Going to Fethiye for the market, fish market and shopping is easy and pleasant with the nearby water taxi. We felt the Turkish people were extremely warm and genuine. There was no in your face hassling when browsing which we also liked. We went on a jeep safari for one day which we booked through Karacay trips with a fantastic gentleman, also booked for 2 day trip to Ephesus and Pamukkale which was also superb -Karacay trips is in Calis Beach near water taxi. Highly recommended and would go back anytime. Hello to the lovely Eylem on reception and the lads at the bar at the Mutlu."

What a fantastic Hotel!
"I have to say that this was the best holiday i have ever been on. The hotel was extremely clean and the staff were amazing, especially the lady on reception (i'm sorry i don't remember her name), they couldn't do enough for us and bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable from our maid hanging all our clothes up for us on our first day to the owner of the hotel taking a member of our party to the nearest chemist when he had earache! The rooms were basic but very clean with brilliant views and we felt we had everything we needed. As for Calis Beach in general, it is a lovely resort with beautiful views. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from who all serve lovely food. The nightlife is a little on the quiet side but the bars were very accommodating. Children are welcome at all times and the little girl who came with us was given VIP treatment everywhere we went!! Depending upon your tastes, we found that food and drinks were very cheap (some bars worked out at 80p per pint!) unless ordering imported drinks which worked out about the same as a home I was part of a group of 16 and every single one of us have said that we would all go back again when possible and we are all looking forward to it."

As Good As Ever
"Had another wonderful holiday at this hotel, returned for the second time. The staff are outstanding so friendly, helpful & polite especially Eylem on the reception and Yazin and the bar staff. The hotel and the rooms are kept spotless. I was surprised by the early review in May as this didn't sound like the Mutlu hotel. We don't normally return to the same Hotel or resort but this hotel is special."
