Ant Apart Otel
11 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Hidden Gem in Ovacik
" This was a 1st class hotel where guests were treated like family. The Ant Apartments are clean, very spacious and provide excellent facilities for self catering. The place is spotless and is kept clean as well as being cleaned on a constant basis. We stayed in June in Ovacik all-inclusive at the Yel Holiday Resort and the Ant Aparts were far superior in every respect, the whole experience from arrival until departure was a joy. The owners Ertugrul and Turin cannot make you any more welcomed than if they were your family. The atmosphere is relaxing, calm and totally enjoyable - what every one wants from a top holiday at reasonable prices in this current climate. All the staff are friendly, helpful and cannot do enough for guests. Although we were self catering, the Ant does food too which was 1st class.

The whole experience was so enjoyable we are hoping to stay there again next year and meet up again with some of the lovely people who stayed there this time. The only problem we will have in future is trying to get other holidays to live up to the high standards received at the Ant. We can now truly appreciate and understand all the previous good reviews we read before we stayed which praised this wonderful hotel, owners and staff - no wonder people have stayed there time and time again. Next year we will be joining them. "

Excellent, clean, friendly, Beautiful!!!
"The family that look after the apartments and their staff are very friendly, Yasin and Ismet made every effort to make our holiday extra special. All the other people that were there the same time as us were very friendly. We never had to fight for a sunbed, there are plenty for everyone. The children loved the pool and pool table. We walked to the town of Hisaranu every night, it takes 10 to 15 minutes, but is a lovely walk. There are lots of restaurants and bars. We recommend the Woodmans restaurant and the Barrumba bar, great staff and entertainment. We will be returning to the Ant apartments as we had a really brilliant time and it is a perfect place to be!!!"

Great place for families, very clean,friendly helpful staff,
"Fantastic place,family run apartments, all very helpful and polite. We travelled with 3 children age range between 8 and 12, they all had a great time and were kept busy with the inflatables in the pool. There is a pool table that is free to use and a table tennis and football table also free. The other guests were very friendly and relaxed, many of them return each year we discovered. Would definately recommend this place to our friends and family. The rooms are a little worn but the maids keep them very clean and well equipped with cooker ,fridge,kettle,hairdryer etc."

"Just had a wonderfull stay at the ant the apartments were very simple but very roomy we had 4 of us the lounge area has 2 camp beds a kitchenette with breakfast bar large fridge all kitchen essentials the separate bedroom is large with two beds and air con (Â£3 per day) two balconies very very clean never had to ask for clean towels it was the perfect place to just chill everything you need is there or right on your doorstep. The couple who run the place and their staff were lovely made us all feel at home so much so that my daughter who turned 10 whilst we was there they went out specially to buy her a cake with candles and gave her a perfect birthday we loved it and would love to go back next year for the perfect chill"

BEST HOLIDAY EVER!!!
"Turkey was amazing!!! Best holiday I have ever had. The hotel was only slightly on the basic side but whos cares if your only using the room to sleep in. In have never seen such a diverse hotel. It is what ever you want it to be. It has a relaxed atmousphere which is safe for children however it has a fantastic lively small bar which is situated right at the front of the comlpex so the noise cannot be heard in the appartments. The two barstaff were fantastic. And everywere you went it was like people wanted to know you and be ure freind with no sense of them being false. The area is absolutly beatiful. With a few off the mountains they feel that you can reach out and touch them they are so close. It was that good im going back in September/October. If your young and single or with a family. This is the best place. 5stars thanks for a fantastic holiday guys!!!!"

Fantastic Five Days
"We have just returned from a 5 day stay at the Ant apts. We have had a really great time. The couple who run the complex, together with their staff are such helpful, considerate , entertaining and welcoming people. They treat you like their own family. They are always on hand to assist and are always on site. You will see them eat in the restaurant ,drink at the bar whilst talking to guests from moning til night.The pool area is clean and no problems with getting a sun bed. The food is very good, especially the Monday night BBQ. The apartments are basic, but comfortable. The small complex is just set off the main road but it is peaceful and quite and within easy reach of Hisaronu and Olu Deniz.There is such a personal touch here and the staff are so eager to please. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone. It is good value for money."

Lovely holiday destination
"Stayed at the Ant apartments for a week in July and it was lovely. The apartments are on the main road between Fethiye and Olu Deniz which is easily reached by bus. Hisaronu was a 10 minute walk away which is where we spent most of our evenings in restaurants and bars but it is very busy. The apartments themselves were much better than we had expected. Very clean and tidy and even had an upstairs! The balcony was small but looked out over the pool-all in all just what we needed. The poolside was really quiet (although we did go out of school holidays) and the owners and the bar staff (Yasin and Ismet) were very friendly and always checking you were happy and having a good holiday. We would definately return here due to the fact the place was so nice, it was roughly 40 degrees every day and it was so cheap. Would also recommend the Orka Bay hotel next door for the turkish bath-it was lovely and only Â£20 for lots of pampering! If you dont like a busy place then I wouldnt reccommend near by Hisaronu as its a little bit like Blackpool with the English fry ups and sunday dinners included! However we avoided this and found some very nice turkish food and cheap cocktails. We'll be back next year!!!!"

Everything we were looking for
"After a holiday in Dalaman two years ago and staying a little of the beaten track we were looking for somewhere a bit more central but not right in the middle of Hisaronou. The Ant Apartments were in a perfect location for us. Really easy to get to Olu Deniz and Fethiye on the local buses, and a 10 minute walk to Hisaronu. The apartments were clean, very spacious and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant a few times and the food was excellent. There are loads of places to eat close by or the facilities for self catering are good if you choose to do so. The pool and gardens are lovely, clean and well kept and there was always plenty of room. No towels to reserve sunbeds, unlike the hotel next door where you seemed to have to get up at 6.30 to reserve a bed. Staff were very friendly , helpful and polite and the managers were a lovely couple who had just taken over this year and were always making sure that everyone was satisfied with everything. Lots of people were saying they wanted to come back either later this year or next year and we would certainly stay at the Ant again."

Excellent - location, cleanliness and service
"Excellent stay - the apartments are loacted right on the main street in Ovacik which is a ten minute stroll to Hisoronu or you can jump in the local dolmush (buses) to Hisoronu, Olu Deniz or Fetiye - all for a pound or less. Fetyie and Olu Deniz are ten mins by bus and Hisoronu just a few mins. Apartments were very spacious and whilst for four it might have been pushed for space for my boyfriend and myself it was excellent - one bedroom with dressing area off with bathroom and then main living area. Balcony off both the living area and bedroom and the kitchenette was well equipped with a two ring cooker and then a mini oven and grill - we were able to cook no problem after a visit to Fetiye market on the Tuesday. That was cooking rice and meat - so no problems with the facilities for cooking at all. All the utensils you need. Stay in general was excellent - Ovacik really is in the centre of all the main resorts but a bit quieter. We were on and off the local buses every day - everyone uses them and you can just flag them anywhere on the main street and it is 2.75 Turkish Lira to Fetiye, 2.50 to Olu Deniz and 1.75 to Hisoronu - why pay extra for taxis when the buses are so comfortable and ev ery 5 mins. We ate in a couple of times and the food was excellent - pool lovely and not overcrowded. We over looked the apartments next door and every morning folk were down at 8am with towels to 'reserve' a bed - no problems at Ant plenty room for everyone. There is free pool, darts, table tennis, table football and chess - for when you want to escape into the shade. The garden grounds are lovely and there are two hammocks you can relax and chill on - my favourite touch. We would certainly return here - the family are lovely, the staff very helpful and the apartments were very clean. We were pleasantly surprised given the few reviews on here - we were a bit unsure - but the apartments are great - no issues at all and would recommmend to anyone."

Ant Apartments are brilliant!
"Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 1 week and when we arrived to the airport in tuyrkey we were told our original hotel was double booked so we had been 'upgraded' and we were slightly concerned but it seems it was one of those times where we actually were upgraded!! it was absolutely brilliant! the pool was lovely and clean and very refreshing in the harsh august heat! our apartment was huge and also very clean and the kitchen area was really big and well stocked with cooking aparatus, it was a very clean apartment with two really comfy seatees which were sofa beds and although i didnt sleep on one i think they would have been very comfortable if i had. Ovacik isnt huge but its lovely and quiet if thats what you want and it is only a 15 min walk into hisaranu which is a lot more lively. we got a taxi to the beach one day it is all based on set fares when you get to taxi rank which is right next to ant apartments so you dont get any nasty shock fares! the beach is beautiful but it was too hot for us as i think the weather was in the 50s the day we went so we didnt last long but we did go to a lovely seafood rest aurant there before we came back so i would def recommend the beach as there is a lot going on down there. there is also some lovely restaurants in ovacik and in one week we didnt have one bad meal. the family who run the ant aparts are lovely and the husband makes the best cocktails in the world and we spent many a night chatting away to him. we did have some food round the pool sandwiches and chips and i must say it was of very high quality! overall we had a brillaint week and wouldnt hesitate to go back!"

Absolutely Fine, Great Location, Pleasant Staff, Very Clean Hotel
"loved the ant....great location in ovacik. Situated slightly set back off the main road (which isnt that busy or noisy!) and close to all the bars/shops in ovacik. Ovacik is a ten minute walk from hisaronu which is much livlier than Ovacik.but if you are wanting a cheap hotel in a quiet area, so you can get away from it all and relax i personally dont think you can go wrong with the Ant.... The hotel and pool facilities were spotless and the staff very friendly and helpful....really enjoyed our stay...Would definately stay in the ANT again. We stayed self catering and upon our arrival were offered the option of upgrading to B&B for Â£4 pp per night or full board for Â£7 pp per night....we didnt take up the option but the food looked nice of those that were dining there."
