The food at the hotel was dreadful and although we were half board we ate out after the first two nights. The loud music played all day on the beach and at the bars was unbearable, not allowing any relaxation at all. We went elsewhere. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Hotel is beautifully located, bang in the middle of the Bitez strip on the beach, at night a lovely breeze ensures you stay cool whilst dining in the restaurants. Okaliptus has many trees, loungers, hammocks, huge cushions and other comfortable places to lay on and chill out, emphasis on chill!! It truly is a lovely hotel to stay in. Pool is adequately sized with small kids area, clean and tidy, grounds are attended to constantly and although the staff are very young and not really that friendly, the experience of the hotel ambience overides any negatives. Music at the bar was at times overbearing, too loud and I actually complained to the reception who ensured it was turned down, however, the music was good when at a normal volume. Breakfast was nice, cereal and turkish food, all good quality. We did eat once in the restaurant at night, however, this was not a pleasant experience and would not be repeated. The lunch menu was lovely and food very good. This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this hotel and would definately go back. overall, I would highly recommed this hotel for the cleanliness and setting.

The Okaliptus Hotel is right on the beach front.

As the coach dropped us of at the rear of the hotel, first impressions were not promising. Having had this experience of arriving at the back door before we were not unduly worried. Nor did we need to be.

Check in was smooth and quick and we were taken to our room at the very back of the hotel quickly. (we had asked for a room at the back in response to other reports of loud music at the front).

The room was large with two proper single beds (with duvets?). A lower level contained two chairs and coffee table and TV, leading to a Patio. The bathroom was big enough with a screened shower unit and was nice and clean.

There were 3 reading lamps and a wall light in the room, two more lights and an extractor in the bathroom, and a ceiling light in the corridor. Bedside cabinets, and dressing table provided drawers and a recess near the door doubled as a wardrobe that was curtained off, so storage was not a problem.

Towels were provided and changed without any problem, but bed-linen appeared to be changed only weekly (but maybe I was mistaken, perhaps something to do with having Duvets?) .

Air con was included and was efficient and quiet.
The view from the patio was a dissapointment, looking on to a scruffy back yard and was surrounded by trees making it dark, but we knew this before we went so it was not a problem.

A mini-bar (fridge)was in the room stocked with soft drinks etc, but was VERY expensive, but there were no compaints about putting your own drinks in it
The hotel itself is clean and well managed with plenty of foliage offering shade and stone flagged exterior corridors.

The swimming pool lets it down a bit, being a shade small and not especially clean or well maintained, but it is adequate for sunbathing around with plenty of sunbeds and shade.There is a very small childrens section.

Breakfast was the usual Turkish type, but included cereal, fruit, cake, sausages (some days). We didn't have it often (alarm clock failure) so can't give a full report ,but I would rate above several hotels in Turkey that we have visited.

Restaurant/bar. We never ate there on an evening so cannot gauge the food, other visitors said it was good.HOWEVER, we had a drink there on arrival (after a 4 hour delay courtesy of T. Cook)and were shocked to find that a SMALL beer was 5 ytl.The average in the resort was around 3.5 or 4ytl for a large one.

The music around the bar area was constant but , perhaps, heeding previous complaints was of a reasonable kind/volume.

There are loads of hammocks , swings and cushions around this area to lounge about on.

Money exchange was available at a reasonable exchange rate (no commission on cheques, unlike some of the money changers).Also safety deposits in reception for 20 ytl per week.

All in all we were sufficiently happy to book again for next year on return to England.

We did notice that some guests were unhappy with their bills after running a "tab" in the bar/ restaurant and were questioning their bills. Indeed we were asked for 60 ytl even though we had not had a tab, but this was dropped without question when we resisted paying.

Staff were pleasant and friendly, maybe the maids could have been a bit more thorough in their duties.

Entertainment was as far as I could see,non-existent.

On a personal level I would rate this as the best 3* hotel we have used in Turkey and have no hesitation in recommending it to seasoned travellers who do not expect 5* comfort at 3* prices.

This was our second time staying in the Okaliptus, the hotel is in a great beachfront location, right in the centre of Bitez bay.

The rooms are of a standard worthy of 3-4* rating.

Out front the hotel has cushions, swinging chairs, sunbeds etc for a relaxing day lying in the sun, however it is let down by the loud music coming from the bar which can be repeative and not suitable for children listening (eminem).

This sadly now seems to be all along Bitez beachfront with Bars turning up the volume competing with each other. Bar prices at the Okaliptus are expensive (a G&T is 12 lira compared to 6 lira next door).

However its a nice hotel, if you can put up with the music its probably the best in Bitez.

The hotel was beautiful, it was clean and well maintained. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was great, we were on a b&b bases, which was great, we also ate off the menu a couple of times, which was lovely.

The hotel was located in the middle, with loads of resturants to either side, so much choice. It has bean bags and hamocks to relax in, which is great after a big meal.

There is also a water sports section, which is so much fun, the staff working there are such a laugh and they make sure that you have a good time.

They didn't really provide entertainment, all though the staff are very entertaining.
