The three-and-a-half-pearl Club & Hotel Letoonia is a huge, family-geared resort with an enviable peninsula positioning across the bay from Fethiye. The 165 acres (66.7 hectares) of pine forests and manicured gardens here border three private beaches, and a wealth of activities for all ages makes it a popular choice for both couples and families. The 620 rooms are spread across the grounds, which means a lot of steps and slopes, but sea views from many are gorgeous. Renovations in 2016-17 gave rooms a contemporary look, and they're all outfitted with kettles, fridges, and safes. All-inclusive food and drink are extensive, however nearby offerings are not. For a beachfront stay with easier terrain and town proximity, consider the Jiva Beach Resort.
Huge, beachfront nature resort with lovely grounds
This all-inclusive resort has a beautiful nature-rich setting with fragrant pines that straddle three private beaches. Forest hills here are challenging -- shuttle transport and elevators are present, but so are many steps and slopes -- however, large lawns flanked by paved paths and flowering bougainvillea are easier to manage, and distinctive sculptures cutely dot grounds. White buildings with wood trim and shutters are distinctly Turkish, as are Ottoman decor in the spa and galleried veranda lounges. Simple or retro-like interiors are less impressive, but most guests are here for the amenities and views, which expansive al fresco terraces overlooking seas offer. An array of indoor and outdoor facilities cater both to couples and families. A few drawbacks include somewhat-repetitive buffets, and noise reaching some rooms. Note that the hotel has a fairly isolated location and is only open late-April through October.
The resort occupies a flora- and fauna-rich forest setting by its private beaches, and while beautiful, the location is remote. Boat shuttles to Fethiye are regularly available though, taking around 15 minutes (fees apply). They allow guests to explore this town's historic sights, market bazaars, and marina. Taxis are your best bet for Oludeniz (famous for its Blue Lagoon beach), and journeys take 35 minutes, as does Hisaronu, for nightlife. Dalaman Airport is a little over an hour away by car.
Modern 2016-renovated rooms -- many with sea views
Comfortable rooms occupy the main building or Bungalows, reached by outdoor elevators and unavoidable steps. They span 258 to 301 square feet (24 to 28 square meters), and are outfitted in contemporary decor, thanks to 2016-17 renovations. Light-wood floors and furnishings are accented by silver-and-turquoise patterned bedding, blue drapes and seating, olive-green throw pillows, and attractive photos of local scenes above the headboards. Unfortunately, some entry-level rooms lack balconies and overlook parking lots. Others, meanwhile, can have lovely balconies or terraces facing the sea or gardens. Most rooms have a sofa bed, and Suite or split-level Villas add on kitchens and dining areas.
Phones, desks, minibars with free soft drinks, kettles for tea- and coffee-making, hairdryers, AC, and safes come standard. Light or dark-tiled bathrooms have showers, toiletries, slippers, and robes, but some can suffer drain odors. Additionally, beds can be two twins pushed together (common for the region), and rooms can suffer noise. All units can be fitted with cribs.
The standout features here are the three private beaches, named Dolphin, Champagne, and Marina. Their white sand or shingle shores overlook pretty turquoise waters, and features include a jettied pavilion bar, loungers, umbrellas, hammocks, and two large waterslides that lead into the sea. Free-to-use canoes, sailboats, and paddleboards, plus for-fee motorized water sports are available. Sea views are also gorgeous from many dining terraces serving three buffet and three a la carte restaurants, plus multiple bars. Note, some non-buffet outlets are not part of the all-inclusive rates. Cuisine is mostly Turkish or Mediterranean, and themed nights are popular, though many guests find buffets repetitive.
Alongside relaxing lawn hammocks or morning yoga, activity-centric features include four tennis courts and multiple family-friendly pools with kiddy sections and snack bars serving drinks and ice cream. Kids' clubs range from toddler to teen options, as do amenities including indoor and outdoor play areas, mini-golf, sports courts, a playground, and indoor game room. Evening entertainment such as dancing or acrobat shows is mostly well-received.
The spa's sultan archways, earth tones, and patterned tiling are traditionally Turkish, as is its marbled hammam. The sauna, whirlpool, and modern gym are free-to-use, and treatments are available, alongside a hair salon. There's also a Vitamin Bar here and by the main pool (for fresh-squeezed juices). On-site boutiques sell clothes, souvenirs, and essentials, and there's an ATM outside. Pets aren't permitted. Conference space, Fethiye shuttles (fee), free parking and property-wide Wi-Fi complete amenities.
