Private beaches and a stack of bars and restaurants make this place a huge success.
Rustic cottages peek out from behind date palms and jasmine at this hillside complex. Steps and lifts help you get around. The hotel is on a peninsula, and down on the coast there’s a trio of private beaches.
This place does things on a big scale. There’s a huge selection of restaurants, including one with panoramic views, plus a mega-mix of bars. And to top things off, the waterslides go right into the sea.

A delightfully different holiday experience.
TURKEY :- We had not been to Turkey before, so soon became aware of 2 things to bear in mind if this applies to you. Firstly you have to apply and pay for a visa on line-about £12 each. Secondly, a lot of European travel insurance does not include Turkey (though strangely enough ours included Tunisia which is definitely on the African continent!) so an upgrade may be necessary. FETHIYE:- We chose this location because the flight times from our local airport to Dalaman airport were the most convenient, and the transfer times seemed less tortuous than some. We still had to pay £40 each extra to Thomas Cook for return transfers, consisting of a minibus to Fethiye and then we were met by a taxi. The system for finding the rep at the airport is chaotic-you have to exit the airport and then find their stand amongst many others facing into a circular arena, but the pathway actually takes you behind the stands, so that you cannot see the displays, and taxi drivers are trying to block your transit touting for business. All of this is a fault of the airport-not the reps or the hotel. Transfer was still well over an hour. HOTEL:- No-one at the hotel lets you lift your cases-the taxi driver took them to the hotel lobby. After a swift and efficient check-in, we were taken by a porter (who handled our luggage throughout), on a land train (which we nicknamed the Ninky nonk, which will mean something to those with young children/grandchildren), to an air-conditioned funicular railway lift (4 of these around the site to take you to higher levels), and then led along pathways and down steps to our bungalow. The porter demonstrated the key action, and showed us TV and aircon remotes and generally gesticulated door to balcony, bathroom etc. Tipping is not obligatory but one does feel the need to tip, as there are tip boxes everywhere, so what bigger hint than that? So it is advisable to try to arrive with some loose change or lower denominational notes. We did not feel that the décor of our bungalow was outdated, more that it was charmingly Turkish, which is what we expected. The bed was 6’ wide (and not two singles pushed together). It was all clean and fresh, though the use of a little mould and mildew spray on small areas of the shower room would not have gone amiss. There was a FREE safety deposit box, fridge stocked with juice and water (replenished when required), kettle and tea/coffee/dried milk. They provide dressing gowns and one size fit all slip-on slippers and the usual sample shampoos etc. The room was spacious with plenty of storage and a settee, and plenty of cushions to remove from the bed before sleeping! The bed /pillows were comfortable. We found that we could not sleep with the air conditioning on, because we are light sleepers, but left it going while we were out each evening using spare key card and that sufficed. Our bungalow had a nice view between trees of the harbour, and it was shady for most of the day after early morning sun, but that helped to keep it cooler. We were well positioned for reaching most pools/beaches. Some bungalows were quite distant from amenities but the walking around such beautiful grounds is part of the pleasure of this resort, and the land train covers the main routes. There are always lots of steps involved to access bungalows or for short cuts, so not ideal for infirm guests or those with buggies, though the latter could be left safely on the site which is entirely enclosed. The whole site is an immaculate garden with wonderful flowers, statues and stunning views of sea and mountains. There are new places to discover every day which is what makes this resort so special. You can pick up a free Letoonia beach bag from guest relations (situated near the gift shops). They will also help you to sort out your wi-fi and are very helpful. Reception give you a card to exchange for pool towels (until 6pm) at 2 locations near the 2 main pools. After check out, you can keep pool towels until your departure, but you can shower free in the Spa and fitness centre and they provide a towel and locker key for a communal single-sex changing room adjacent to shower cubicles for mixed sexes. There are 3 large pools and some smaller children’s pools. (I can’t comment on other children’s facilities as we travelled as a couple). There are beaches all around the resort. All pools have loungers and sunshades, though there are still those who will selfishly reserve their’s for the whole day with a hotel towel without going near it! The beaches have loungers, sunshades, hammocks, and some have water slides into the sea and pedalos etc. for no extra charge.There is always somewhere different to go. The sea clarity could be better, but it is still very nice and very safe bathing. There are several places to eat, but one main dining area –the Lykia, which has the widest choice for breakfast lunch and dinner. A special mention for IMDAT from there, who brought us wine and fruit to our room for our special anniversary and who was always very attentive to us. All the staff work very hard.The Lykia has a roof but is open at the sides and has a splendid view. It can seem a little noisy and because in the evening the restaurants are only open 7.30pm until 9.30pm they do seem very busy-they should open an hour earlier to spread dining out for longer. It does at least keep smokers separate, which is more than can be said for the open air Moonlight dinner restaurant which has lovely views but is rather on the dark side for seeing what you are eating at this time of year. Throughout the day there are many different bars and snack bars adjacent to where you have chosen to be, always bottled water available, wine comes out bottles not huge vats, fruit juice out of cartons, (or squeeze your own oranges at breakfast). There is a wide enough range of food but labelling on bowls of sauces could be better. These are Turkish salads and dishes so no point expecting the same as other Mediterranean countries and enjoy the different things on offer. My only observation would be that vegetables are overdone (this is a fairly common problem, so just eat more salads plus the meat/fish dishes) and lovely fruit (best pears I’ve tasted). Lovely Turkish desserts of baklava are delicious. Be aware that flies live in this country as well, so select food from under covers or from lower layers of dishes. Sparrows are also on the lookout for crumbs. These are just a necessary evil for al fresco dining which is such a wonderful experience . Cocktails and drinks were all very good-tonic water and coke were main brands, and Irish cream was very good. Lager is Tuborg. Freshly cooked doughnuts 5pm by the main pool are delicious. Coffee bar placed by the evening entertainment area is very good (as is coffee at all locations). The little touches like a popcorn stand made this place so different. We paid extra (£9 each)for the Dolphin Beach waiter service fish restaurant on our anniversary-a unique experience eating with the sea lapping the sand a yard away from our feet, and low lighting festooned from the trees. The menu that is available to view around the site does not make it clear that you get ALL the cold starters-about 9 dishes! We saw entertainment on several nights from 10pm. It takes place in the central area by the main pool (which is not near the main hotel with its Marine bar and pool), or in the arena theatre behind the Letoonia edifice. It was the same team every night in different guises-good jugglers, tumblers and dancers. The daytime animation team worked hard to involve people, but we were there to just chill out. Noise was never a problem. OUT AND ABOUT:- We took the shuttle bus 15TL return each to Fethiye-a pleasant 15min trip each way, but it was rather too hot that day to wander round a town for long, but you can get further afield to Olu Deniz by Dolmus from there. We paid quite highly for the Thomas Cook Gulet trip round the islands, but it was worth it to be picked up at the hotel quay, and there were relatively few of us on board and it was a lovely day out with lunch and drinks included-much cooler on a boat and plenty of opportunities to bathe in the sea from the boat and such magnificent scenery and so much shipping to watch including yachts of the rich and famous. On the journey home Dalaman airport scan you and all your luggage BEFORE check-in, and this is still followed by the security check on your hand luggage. They apparently are one of the worst airports for charging for going over weight limits. I would recommend this hotel for a totally different experience. Well done Letoonia!More

Paradise in Fethiye
I just remeber the year it was built about thirty years ago when I was a 15 years old. Now I had found the oppurtunity to visit with my daughter at eight years old. What a lovely place it had been turned into. Great villas surronded by trees and lovely colourful plants all over the peninsule of the resort with several beaches and wonderful view of Fethiye Town and the back ground the magnificient mountains. The staff are friendly and helpful.More

First time at Latoonia
First timer but know the area well, location perfect , bungalow I was allocated spotless and easy reach to the centre but oh my get the staff to smile , making omelettes all morning may not be fun but why so miserable ! Food not the most exciting not 5 star but caters for the masses , pressing fresh orange juice a nice touch ! Mix variety of clients but eastern block not the happiest of groups and rubs off on staff! Must add not all staff but 80% shouldn't be so sullen and downright rude . No leadership or role models to learn from still a nice place and plenty of activity ! Tip for hotel lay a mini bus on to Fethiye in the evening and get Memhet ex Belcekiz beach to teach catering staff how to operate . I have to say its 75% great needs a bit of polish around the edges to make it 5* worth a trip . Nice for a week ,fortnight you would have had enough ! More
One week certainly enough.Very big hotel in very large grounds full of Russians and children. Good entertainment for children and you can find quiet areas but food quality not that good and very repetative. All drinks of course free even up to 7.00am. Quite loud at night in main square where all activities go on. Better for groups and families.More

Just what we needed
After moving homes twice in the last 5 months we were looking for a place to just relax without any hassle. The Letoonia resort delivered exactly what we needed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The accommodation was excellent (we were in one of the apartments at the edge of the site therefore quite a number of steps to climb, however this also meant there was no disturbance from the night time activity's). The food was excellent however we did opt for the al a carte 3 times during our stay (£10 per head additional charge). This was no reflection on the food it was more to do with the fact you had waiter service and in case of the fish menu, you were located in a romantic setting on the beach. Also excellent spa facilities for an additional cost, my partner had a massage to remember and my shave and haircut was great. One of the few places we have ever been that we would consider going back too.More
