What a joy Dede, owner Rose cook and Sabash the cleaner & not forgetting Millie the dog. Also 118 treated us with such kindness and hospitality that we felt as though we were part of the family nothing was to much trouble. If Dede didn't have something you can be sure he got it for you.
We each had an apartment which was so clean. Bed sheets and towels were fresh everyday.
Beautiful swimming pool which was spotlessly clean and cleaned every night.
The food was excellent. Breakfast was a full English and kebabs snacks, all very cheap
All in all we just had a lovely chilled out holiday which was made more enjoyable by Dede.
My friends and family have all agreed we will most definitely be returning next year to the Camellia Apartments 10 out of 10

The apartment management arranged the transfers which were excellent, on time and very comfortable. On our arrival at 6am at the Camelia the night porter was waiting for us and took us and our luggage straight to our apartment.
Whilst basic and a little run down, the apartment was absolutely huge, very clean and well equipped. The large bedroom contained two single beds and masses of wardrobe space. French doors led to a balcony with a good clothes drying thing on it and a view over fields. The bathroom was a decent size with a good shower. The kitchen area was large, airy and well equipped and the living room was massive, light and airy. It contained a large, comfortable sofa bed (already made up for sleeping), a table and chairs, another large armchair that could also be made into a bed if required and a huge air conditioning unit that very effectively cooled the whole apartment including the bedroom. French doors led to a second good sized balcony overlooking the pool.
The pool was fabulous, an excellent size for the twelve apartments and spotlessly clean. There were loads of very comfortable sunbeds, more than enough for the guests and various visitors to the complex no matter what time you staggered out of bed.
The bar area was lovely, cool and shady. Prices of food and drink were extremely reasonable. Food was served from around 8am to around 4 or 5pm.
The complex managers, Cenk and Olga, and their bar manager Yousseff are what make these apartments a joy to stay in. Nothing is too much trouble, they regard their guests as friends and treat them accordingly. I have never stayed somewhere this small before but would definitely do so again, there is a real "family" feel amongst the staff and guests. Many of their guests return year after year due to the warm welcome and friendly atmosphere.
I booked these apartments as they were so cheap. Many guests I met there could afford far more luxurious apartments but chose to return to the Camelia because of the staff.
My only criticism is the location, they are a good fifteen minute walk from the front of Calis which is a long way when the temperature is in the mid forties. However if you time it right, the dolmus passes the end of the road they are on every ten minutes and goes directly to the front.
I rated the entertainment as 5.....I do not like organised entertainment and there was very little, making it perfect for me. They do a barbecue/belly dancer night once a fortnight which was great fun.
I would visit these apartments again without a doubt.
