No curtains in room and the nets weren't that great at blocking out the early morning sun. Very noisey in Block A we took a large supply of earplugs and used them every night. Tiny balcony.
Breakfast same each day very boring. Lunch ok, didn't eat in hotel in the evening.
Pool and views of mountains fantastic. Hotel in great location and very close to Hisaronu. We went on a few boat trips which were very good, drinks expensive in comparison to resort.
Love Olu Deniz visited it for the beach and night life. Great place for watching the sunset enjoying a cocktail and watching the paragliders (Buzz and Help bars). Husband tried paragliding and hasn't stopped talking about it - fantastic!
Fetiye also close and market huge. Thought prices were cheaper in Hisaronu/Olu Deniz so check out before you go. The fresh veg and fruit amazing there wished we had gone self catering.
Turkey not as cheap as we thought and spent a fortune. Change your money when you get there as much better exchange,

We got married here just over a year ago so we obviously like it!
Was a bit disappointed on this trip though. The rooms as always were clean and the cleaners were lovely and very friendly. Pool is spotless and very large. Location is fantastic (if you don't mind the walk up the hill). Food not great - although we did have a couple of very lovely pizzas - but generally we eat out of the hotel anyway as there is so much choice in Hisaronu.
Disappointing were the staff. The reception staff are always brilliant, but the bar staff and waiters this year left quite a lot to be desired. However, as they seem to change those year to year it is just pot luck which staff you get!

The location of the hotel is perfect for us. Set up a short incline it is close enough to the town for a quick two minute walk to the shops, but far enough away from the main drag to be quiet and undisturbed.
The rooms are basic - you will not find TVs or mini bars, but who needs them?! The bathrooms are small but perfectly formed. The bedrooms tend to be twin rather than double, but this is pretty standard in Turkish hotels. Rooms are cleaned daily and towels are replaced a couple of times a week. Air conditioning is available at an extra charge. Safety deposit boxes are also available at an extra charge.
The staff at this hotel make it a real pleasure to stay in. They work incredibly hard and always have a smile on their faces - I can't praise them highly enough.
Entertainment is lacking. They do do a bbq and Turkish night once a week but that's about it. However, we tend to head into town in the evenings anyway and just go to the hotel bar for a few drinks at the end of the night. In early and late summer when the evenings are colder they light a wood fire in the bar area.
My only two fairly negative comments about the Telmessos is that the food isn't fantastic - you will have much nicer meals in town. The breakfast is basic but it's okay and I wouldn't eat there in the evenings. That said, they laid on lovely food for our wedding! The other thing is that unless you hand your key into reception your room doesn't get cleaned. And once you've handed your key in you can't get into your room until they have cleaned it - which can take HOURS so I wish the management would give the cleaners a master key.
I would recommend this hotel highly overall if you want to get out and about and see the town and need a good base to stay at.
In fact, we're going back in September 2008!
