Three bedroom (sleeps 8) duplex apartment right on Calis beach. Dolphin 2 is part of the luxury Sunset Beach Club resort that has pools, bars, own restaurant, shop, hamam/beauty salon & 24hr security
Dolphin 2 is a spacious apartment just 30 seconds from Calis beach and has access to all the facilities on site at Sunset Beach Club Resort. The gentle lapping of the waves on the beach in the morning, sipping cold drinks by one of the four large pools, eating a delicious meal at the onsite restaurant while watching the sun set across the bay, strolling along Calis Beach promenade and sampling the many bars and restaurants, hopping on the water taxis to go across the bay to the cosmopolitan harbour town of Fethiye or just lazing about on Dolphin 2's large wrap around balcony or top floor roof terrace.... all these activities make Dolphin 2 a magical place to spend a week or two in the sun to completely chill out, relax and completely recharge those batteries!
Calis Beach is now a very popular holiday resort on Turkey's "turquoise coast" - and the crystal clear deep blue seas explain that name easily. But for Calis, it is not so easy as "Calis" means work in Turkish and that reveals a little of it's history. It hasn't always been a holiday destination - Calis Beach was "Work beach" where a small railway ran across the beach to the jetty (where Sat Restaurant now is at the far south end of the beach) with loads of chromium, mined inland. Those days are well in the past now and the only work done on Calis Beach nowadays is applying the sun cream - Calis is reported to have around 300 days of sun each year - and the beach is lined almost from end to end with restaurants serving superb Turkish cuisine and international favourites. The pedestrianised Calis promenade is the place to watch the simply stunning Calis sunsets.
Calis is actually part of Fethiye, who's centre lies to the south side of Fethiye bay, while Calis sits on the east side. Fethiye is an excellent place to visit - there are plenty of reasons - the narrow lanes of the Paspatur (known as the "old town") with it's restaurants, bars and souvenir and gold shops, but actually getting there can be a lovely experience on the Calis water taxis that leave the canal just behind the seafront. Water taxis leave every half hour but don't believe the advertised "on the hour and half hour" - this is Turkey and it never is! To use to Calis water taxi service simply go to the kiosk and purchase your tickets (single or return) and once the boat is docked you will be ushered on. It's a very laid back and enjoyable experience. In fact, if time is on your side it is the only way to travel!

Unfortunately I think as I booked near the end of the season I did not get the best from this apartment, the first thing that struck us was the dirty sofa, and the ants marching up the cupboards, but its Turkey so we knew that the ants could be dealt with, the management company did supply traps 4 days later. The sofa had broken zips and covers hanging off, curtain tie back hooks were hanging off the walls, shelves in bathroom were glass and broken and loose, curtains in the loft room hanging off the rail, floors filthy under beds, sofa etc., and the air con was disgusting, to the point that I had to wash all the filters in them. I feel that the owner is not getting the service he is paying for from the management company. The location of the apartment is great, almost on the beach and a dolmus trip to anywhere you would wish to get to in the area.

There was 7 of us staying in the apartment and there was more than enough room, there is air con in all bedrooms and lounge which is very welcome, 3 bathrooms were perfect with 2 teenage girls. The views are eactly as the picture and were amazing sitting out in the morning watching the beach and local kite surfers. The shop on site is great for basics such as fresh bread and water. Worth visiting the surf club down the road had a few amazing nights watching the sunset and some lovely food. Ross has been great from start to finish and we all would definately book to stay here again, thanks Ross :)

Absolutely 1st class. Our third time in Turkey and in that same region. This resoort is brilliant. The appartment DOLPHIN 2 was excellent, spacious, clean, bright and well furnished. I am absolutely sure we will be back. This appartment slept 8 of us comfortably and the view oout frrom the balcony onto the pool and nearby sea / beach was brill.
Do not be fooled by the pictures of the gym - There isnt one !!. A Bike and a cross trainer both adjacent to the indoor pool - neither worked. No hassel though as overall the whole Sunset Beach Club facility is excellent.

We have stayed at this villa twice now, and both times we have had an amazing holiday. The property is lovely and the position is also great as most things can be reached on foot!! Inside the apartment is fantastic... very comfortable, spacious and clean & especially being next to the pool which was great for our friends having two children, who could watch them easily from the balcony. Air-con in Turkey was a must and much appreciated. During our first holiday we hired a car, but the second time we didn’t bother, everything is within easy walking distance and if we didnt want to walk the regular dolmus buses were cheap and picked us up from just outside on the road. Our trip to Oludinez was easily made on the dolmus buses, the drivers were very helpful and spoke very good English, we found it was very easy to get around. There are plentiful bars, pubs and restaurants in walking distance, especially if you explore the surrounding back streets where some little gems can be found. The owner Ross was really helpful about everything, and very honest and prompt emailing back regarding any queries we had and obviously he really cares that your holiday is a success. Thanks Ross.... we will definitely be booking again next year!
