Hotel Era
Ranked #47 of 102 Hotels in Fethiye
Reviewed 3 August 2017 via mobile

Just spent 17 days with Ergun and Raziye at the Era Hotel. This was only my 2nd time there (last was Sept 2016 for only a week) and i really didn't want to leave at the end of my stay. It really does feel like a home from home to me. All of the staff make you feel so welcome and at home, they will cater for your dietary needs if necessary and nothing is a chore to them. I hoped for the same room as last year and Ergun made sure i had it! Era seems to have broken away from Friendship Travel now so if you want to go alone you can book directly through Ergun to dates that suit you. It's an adult hotel and most of the time extremely peaceful. Still all inclusive with afternoon cake and fruit. Any drinks ordered after 10pm will be chargeable but it's minimal. Towels are provided for the pool and to be honest, you really don't need much more than that! I had the most wonderful time there and am now looking to go back in September! Thank you again Ergun and i'll see you soon! x

First stayed here for two weeks in 2012 through Friendship Travel and met my now husband. As a couple we couldn't book with Friendship Travel so we were delighted when Ergun told us that the hotel would be open to independent guests as well as FT. We had the same all inclusive deal as Friendship Travel guests, with transfers provided. The Era is open all season, even when it's not available to FT. Ergun and Raziye will welcome you and look after you as will their wonderful team of staff - all are friendly and put you at your ease. You arrive as a guest and leave as a friend. The food is great (thanks chef Ali), the rooms are clean, beds comfy, plenty of hot water and the pool is so inviting - plenty of sun loungers and parasols too!

I've been to the Era many times since 2010 with Friendship Travel and I love it. I wanted to go back this year as usual, but due to the downturn in tourism in Turkey, my usual direct Monday morning Thomas Cook flight has been cancelled (Thursdays only) so I couldn't fit into FT's Monday to Monday schedule. OK, I could have gone the long haul way through Gatwick or such like but didn't want the hassle of transfers and long waits at airports.
Luckily there was an alternative. This year the Era is open to independent guests as well as FT. Same all inclusive deal, transfers provided. And the Era is open all season, even when it's not available to FT. I'm going back in August, independent again. Quite apart from the flight thing, I couldn't get time off work to fit into FT'S dates.
So if there's anybody reading this who really,really wants to go back to the Era, singles, couples, (no kids) book independently. Ergun and Raziye will welcome you and look after you. You may or may not have the company of FT guests, either way it's all good.
P.S. I had a lovely holiday and am counting the days till the next one.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are coolest.

i booked Era through Friendship Travel who organise solo traveller holidays. I've been to this area of Turkey many times but not stayed here so was a bit apprehensive about it. I need not have worried. Apart from a lovely lot of people in my group, the owners Ergun and Raziye along with chef Ali were the most warm and wonderful hosts you could meet. My room was on the lower ground floor so no need to use the air con as it was fairly cool most of the time. Size of the room was large and lots of space, lots of plug sockets, loads of hanger in the double closet. The pool is a great size, plenty of sun loungers. The food was good although i didn't make the most of the all inclusive option i was more than happy with both food and drinks available. It's a 10-15 min stroll down the hill into Hisaronu where most of the night life happens along with shops and plenty of restaurants.
All in all i had a wonderful week there (wish it was longer!) and will definitely be staying there again next year...if you want local charm, wonderful hosts and great views then i would not hesitate to recommend the Era. (I hate to give a fab review for fear they will be booked up next year!!)

Room Tip: Quieter and cooler rooms are on the lower garden/terrace.
