Sticky Beak Flies Off To Letoonia Hotel & Club, Fethiye, Turkey

You may have noticed a brief quiet spell on The Sticky Beak Blog over half term week dear reader, there was a reason for this; the Flock (sans Elders) had flown off to Turkey in search of some sun.



The Man Bird, Chickadee and I decided to have a lazy week at Letoonia Club and Hotel, Fethiye, Turkey and booked our break through Jet2 Holidays (never used them before, but check out my thoughts on them here). We flew into Dalaman airport which is currently undergoing expansion for a new terminal, although there was no disruption at all.


The accommodation itself was absolutely stunning even though we didn’t indulge in the stuff that had attracted me to the resort initially! Read my thoughts about the hotel



The water slides that went into the sea, the huge day bed lounge out on a pier in the bay, the Spa and the Gym were sadly neglected by us as we were just too busy with other things, but it’s a good excuse for a return visit, and I would definitely go back to Letoonia Club and Hotel.


Nothing was too much trouble for any of the hotel staff and the choice of restaurants and quality of the food was second-to-none, and there are more detailed reviews here

Letoonia has its own Marina due to its secluded location, and for a small fee there is a daily boat taxi service that takes you into the coastal town of Fethiye.



Every Tuesday there is a market in Fethiye and  I love going and having a poke round at the local wares on offer and indulging in a spot (ok, a lot) of haggling with the traders. His Nibs was in desperate need of some good quality leather belts and after some intense “negotiations” the stall holder and I agreed a price that suited both sides.



If you haven’t experienced the hustle and bustle of a Turkish market before, I recommend that you go and see one for yourself. There isn’t any obligation to buy, all you need do is smile politely, say no thank you and keep walking. The traders attention will quickly switch to the next person walking by their frontage trust me.


We went on several excursions during our week away, all of which were immensely pleasurable. We chose to book them through our Jet2 representative, Mustafa, as we like the peace of mind and ease of booking, but there were plenty of locals offering boat excursions to the marina at Fethiye if you prefer to trade directly.



The Mugla region of Turkey is breath-takingly beautiful and I can recommend you pay it a visit if you haven’t been here before. Equally, we have stayed in Hotels in Side (pronounced See- Day) and this is a lovely area too, served by Antalya airport.


I hope you find my articles useful :)
