We have just returned from our second trip together to the Caretta Aparts. Although this is my sixth visit and my partners second we had no hesitation in returning as we feel we are now part of the ever growing Caretta family. From the moment you are met by Duran at the airport to the sad moment he drops you back at the end of your holiday, you are guaranteed to have a great time, make lots of new friends (on Dr Johns orders), meet old friends and have a relaxing enjoyable holiday. The Caretta apartments are well maintained and comfortable, with everything you need make your stay complete. Nothing is too much trouble for Dr John or his staff and you are always greeted by a smile. During your stay Dr John will arrange boat trips, beach barbeques and trips to Fethiye at the drop of a hat, and he will even insist on dropping you at the local market on a Sunday. His Turkish Nights are a wonderful holiday highlight, with belly dancing, great food and a chance to see Dr John and his wife Mary dancing with guests and a special bar dancing routine carried out by their son Cem. You are certainly guaranteed to come back with many new friends names and addresses and lots of wonderful memories. We will certainly be going back again!!

Ever since I moved to Turkey in 2009 and then more permanently after I married in 2010 my family have been coming to see me twice a year. I needed to find a place for them to stay that was near to the beach and restaurants, dolmus stops (bus that runs everywhere) and that was comfortable, clean and friendly. I stumbled across Caretta, luckily! and my family have been coming to Caretta every time they visit me. I actually live in the centre of Fethiye by the harbour and Caretta is located in Calis (pronounced ch) which is only 5 minutes by dolmus and costs next to nothing. Caretta is such a homely, relaxed, friendly apart hotel and Dr Can and Mary and their son Cem have become good friends of not only myself but also my family. My husband and myself even invited them all to our wedding in 2010, to which Dr Can offered his car as a wedding car for us and even decorated it accordingly....something you would never expect in a million years from your average holiday rental place! Everyone we ever meet at Caretta returns year after year and has been going to see Jan and Mary for many many years. Caretta's location really is perfect! its by the dolmus stop, but is still quiet (it really is) and is 10 minutes walk to the beach and restaurants, through gardens, and is also only 5 odd minutes to the centre of Fethiye, so not only is Carretta perfectly situated, it is everything I believe a first timer to Turkey needs and I guarantee you will keep on coming back! Great place!
