11 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Fabulous little hotel - wonderful staff - lovely food
"Everything the other reviews say are all true! This was one chilled out holiday.
The hotel is far enough from Hisaronu to be quiet at night but close enough to walk down and stagger back (or cram into a 'taxi' .... heehee) from a good night out with newly made friends. Its THE most friendly hotel we've ever been to, with the staff being lovely, polite, helpful and very hardworking, and the other holiday makers there, well what can I say - we just clicked into one big happy family - especially at Efes pub, Churchill Bar and Hakuna Matata!
All the food is lovely, homecooked, definitely no complaints, and bar prices fairly reasonable - try the Mariachi Black - if its back in stock!
We'd love to go back next year - and its not often you can say that!"

3 star hotel with 5 star service!
"The Hotel Cypriot is a small family owned hotel with 2 & 3 bed ensuite rooms and also several larger suites.
To get to the hotel one has to turn off the main Fethiye to Oludeniz road onto a dusty track, but don't be alarmed by this because the hotel is literally around the corner.
Once there, Erkan (The manager) and his staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and relaxed.
This is a very friendly hotel and the vibe is most definately "chill out & enjoy".
Although the rooms are fairly basic (as are most 3 star hotels I've stayed in), they were clean and the beds comfortable.
Evenings tend to consist of guests meeting up at the bar and enjoying a drink while watching a beautiful sunset.
The evening meals are extremely good value for money: A large selection of self service Turkish Meze followed by a home made soup with bread and finishing with a simple main course of a meat or fish with rice or chips.
The Turkish breakfast offered is a choice of hard boiled eggs, local cheese, tomatoes, cucumber, olives and fresh bread & butter (for the die hard Brit foodies... there is a full English Breakfast on offer at extra money).
I have stayed at the Cypriot on several occasions and usually bump into other repeat guests that have also been as happy with the hotel as I have"

Who let the dogs out!
"We have just returned from a two week holiday staying at the Cypriot Hotel and overall it was great. The manager, Erkan was welcoming and friendly. He and the bar staff, Ahmed and Alil, were always cheerful and very helpful. You only had to ask and Erkan would phone and arrange trips, taxis and transport to and from the beach etc. The other guests, most had been staying in the hotel year after year, and the staff made you feel like part of one big family. The bar stayed open all nite and going to bed in the evening was like a scene from the Waltons.
The hotel itself was basic but very clean and comfortable and great shower. Unfortunately you could hear people in rooms along and across the corridor and we were once or twice woken up by people returning to the hotel in the middle of the night. It didn't bother us too much but it may have been difficult if we had brought young children. The chickens over the road were visable but you couldn't here them and there was no sign of cows or goats when we went.
The pool was clean and tidy, never a issue getting sunbeds, and u must do 'who let the dogs out' in the sauna with as many people in there as you can. I would recommend this hotel to adults and adults with older children. We had a geat time and we will be going back and taking our mob with us. Thanks guys see you next year x"

Ahmed and Ali rule.
"The hotel Cypriot is one of the friendliest hotel we have stayed in. Ercan and his staff treat you like you are one of their family. The rooms are spacious and clean.
The breakfast was a bit of a let down for me cos i don't like turkish breakfasts.No cereal or honey.If you wanted these you had to pay.No juice only tea or coffee.
We will be going back next year,hopefully i will get my juice and cornflakes. See you next year Ercan.
Philip Sue and Sam xx"

Best for Family
"We have been to this hotel twice now, in 2004 and 2006. You are made to feel extremely welcome immediately. Erkan and his staff are absolutely fantastic and make your holiday a very enjoyable time indeed.
My wife and 11 year old daughter went out 2 weeks before myself and our sons (14 & 16) and so managed a 4 week holiday! At no point were they bored and they felt relaxed and safe at all times. All three of our kids now vote for this hotel as their first choice when it comes to deciding on a family holiday each year.
Our friends, Dave and Sharon, recommended this hotel to us and they too regularly return.
It is very well priced and allows you to choose the pace of your own holiday. The first year we were here, we did all the usual tourist things, last year we just relaxed by the pool and were then able to come home completely refreshed and ready to rejoin the rat race for another year! This holiday is what you make of it.
They really make you feel one of the family!"

Relaxing time,very friendly
"Myself and the Girlfriend stayed for two weeks and we had a great time.
The Bar staff are fantastic, very friendly always there to help and assist you with any little problems that you may have. It only has seven people running the hotel, 3, bar staff, 1, manager, 1, cleaner 1, chef 1, kitchen help.
So they really are kept busy but, you'ed never know that they were, they just glide through the long hours etc. I mentioned them helping with any problems....They rang a on street tour agency when our coach for a trip never turned up and sorted it via the phone. One of the bar staff is a bit off a handyman and sorted a problem with the shower straight away.
We usually had a lunch at the hotel and we was B&B so we paid for our snacks, the food was lovely. Never had dinner at the hotel, but a few people stayed HB and seemed to like it.
The location is ten minutes walk from Hisaronu, but we usually just hopped on a dolmush for 1.50 YTL about 60p each person one way,
The rooms were kept clean, floors,toilet, beds made, new towels etc, but no REAL cleaning, dusting of surfaces etc. The room was "Compact" but big enough for two for the amout of time you are in them. We had a nice front view of the pool from the balconey.
The bar was always open as the sign says " The Bar is open until the last one drops" too true, we spent one night there until 5am!!! The bar staff never moaned they just enjoyed a chat :)
We would return again :)
To sum up its a budget hotel and for the money paid, excellent value. It's not a 5 * hotel, so don't expect it to be. A nice place to relax and use as a base, with lots of laughter and fun along the way."

Hotel needs a ittle TLC
"Recently returned from a week long last minute type trip to Hisaronu, staying in the Cypriot hotel
We had a nice week but feel that (as always) there are a few things you should be aware of
Overall impression was that the hotel needed a little bit of sprucing up. Tiles were missing around the pool and the showers were a bit ropey
Erkan, and in particular the lads who work there were superb. In credibly helpful and curteous.
As mentioned earlier, there are cows and goats tied up on criminally short ropes around the back of the hotel (which is a bit unattractive wasteland) and some very persistent early morning cockerels
Do not come here if you want real peace and quiet. Yes, the hotel is away from the main drag with all its Karaoke bars, but the hotel is built ona small plot and the hotel bar is right beneath the windows. You WILL hear everyones drunken conversations and sing alongs whether you like it or not.
Resort. Oludeniz is very pretty and worth a visit. Fetiye is also a lovely harbour town and seems to be where the Turks go on holiday (always a good sign) Hisaronu is like Blackpool with sunshine.
All in all, I imagine most people who go to Cypriot get last minute deals, and like everything, you get what you pay for. Like Turkey itself, The Hotel Cypriot has a rough charm"

Nice and friendly place
"Hello, just got back from a holiday in turkey last week staying in this hotel in Hisaronu. All in all a good time was had by myself and my girlfriend and this hotel was not only modern and clean but the staff were very friendly too (as with all the Turkish locals everywhere!).
Air con costs Â£3 a night if you want it for your room. It's probably recommended if you go the time of year we did (45 degrees each day). Otherwise, if you cant stomach the heat, you and your partner might have to sleep on the cold floor for a bit to cool down. not so much fun.
The food was very good. You get a buffet starter consisting of a choice of what you want from about 10 dishes and then a set main (different every night). If you are half board like we were it's good food and stacks up against a lot that's offered in restaraunts in the town. The bread is nice over there too. Fresh and light and mmm, why can't we make bread like that over here?
The bar stays open 'til the last person drops'. Why they have to keep playing so much celine dion and meat loaf is beyond me but hey once you've had a few you'll be singing along (oh dear yes its true). Drinks are reasonably priced (1.49 for a pint of nice cold Efes). Myself and my girlfriend often just stayed here away from the busier places and we'd just chat all night with good cocktails and that suited us fine. It's a nice little bar.
One of the local wines is called Dikmen. Had a little chuckle about that. But it's surprisingly nice.
The beach is a short bus ride (dolmus) away and cost 2L2t (about a Pound) each. They're air conditioned which is nice but when they squeeze in you like sardines (like they sometimes do) then it makes no difference. The sea was warm and lovely and the scenery is beautiful around the area.
The 'turkish night' is a good night out. Great turkish dances and a fun evening all round (you'll be clapping to the turkish music on the bus ride home) The male belly dancer (and i'd never thought i would say this) was actually better than the female belly dancer. Go figure. The food was great here too, unlimited food and wine. and all for about Â£15 each i think (for the whole night)
There were a lot of roosters that woke us up at ungodly hours of the morning. This was not so much fun.
There is also a cow tied to a tree near the hotel, but dont worry, she's friendly.
All in all i'd recommend this hotel, and the location and the town and all amenities, definitely worth a visit.
We booked our holiday very last minute, on the 12th august, through vision holidays, we went on the 14th, all for a smidge over Â£200 each, which was a bit of a bargain we think.
Have a great holiday

Hotel Cypriot, Turkey
"The hotel Cypriot offers relaxed, friendly and flexible accommodation. Situated a short walk from Hisaronu, it was the perfect distance to enjoy all the townâs shops, restaurants and bars, yet provided a tranquil retreat from the tourist hustle and bustle. The hotel itself has a lovely pool, suitable for children and adults, sauna, bar and the rooms have the option of air conditioning. Outside the hotel the local buses will take you the short distance to the beautiful beach and the blue lagoon or in the other direction to the bigger town of Fethiye, where you can haggle yourself a bargain or two!"
