Era Hotel - Oludeniz - Turkey
An exclusive Friendship Houseparty - with refurbishments for 2015
“A brillant concept and a fantastic holiday. Met some great people' Margaret, Manchester
This simple hotel, built in 1997, has all the key ingredients for a great value week in the sun. The Era is exclusive to Friendship Travel all summer, with a team of 3 staff including 2 British/Turkish hosts based here in the Olu Deniz area of Turkey. Our All-inclusive board basis at the Era means that you can budget with confidence, without worrying about too many ‘extras’.
The focus of the hotel is the turquoise swimming pool surrounded by good-sized sun terraces with sun-beds for everyone, with a shady bar and al-fresco dining areas. Though the hotel is traditional, there are plenty of nice touches in the wood panelling of the bar, the hubble bubble pipe and the odd hammock tucked away in shady corners of the garden.
The ensuite, twin-bedded rooms – for sole occupancy of course – are a good size, each ensuite and with bath and beach towels provided - bedrooms & bathrooms refurbished in 2014 - new bathrooms, showers, updated bedroom furniture. Standard ground floor rooms – on which the holiday price is based – have a terrace; rooms on the first and second floor have a small balcony. For Summer 2015 the hotel owners will carry out works in the winter, to improve the guest experience.
The hotel is 10 minutes’ stroll from a good choice of bars and shops for after-dinner drinks and nightlife, as well as the weekly market. The bus-stop is 7 minutes walk, for easy trips down to the Blue Lagoon or over to Fethiye.
Food is fresh, local and plentiful. The buffet breakfast is a ‘come-when-you’re-ready’ feast; lunch is a plated salad or sandwiches and dinner in the evening is a set menu or buffet. The All-inclusive package includes – from 10am until 10pm each day – unlimited local spirits including vodka, gin and raki, wine, beer, soft drinks and bottled water (all served by the glass). Ice creams are available between 11.00 and mid-afternoon and then it’s time for afternoon tea! You will be glad to know that there are no bathroom scales in the hotel! Please note that, by popular request, dinner is not included on two evenings, so that we can try out the local restaurants (at your own expense).
