My eighth visit.I'll start by saying that when on holiday, you have to respect the hosts, each other and yourself. I booked this holiday very late. I was on the verge of maybe trying another destination but something kept directing me back to the Gorkem. I have reviewd this property following previous visits.Its a medium sized family run hotel in the heart of Ovacik.It lies three hundred metres from the main road that links Fethiye and Olu Deniz at the coast.The area is touristy with plenty of good eating, drinking and shopping.Moving around is easy. Minibuses go past every few minutes. You just hop on and off wherever you want.There is a taxi rank nearby.A trip by taxi to the beach is five pounds.The area is semi rural , mountains seem to be everywhere.Hospitality is universally magnificent.So back to the hotel.Its basic but that is the kernel of its charm and appeal.A kind of rustic peace. The family work hard to ensure you have a great time.Rooms are functional and perfectly adequate to sleep/shower.The grounds are beautiful.There is a bar/ dining room. Yummy snacks are served throughout the day.Now the big bonus for me. Due to personal circumstances I travel alone.Its not ideal but it is what it is.I understand eighty percent of guests are repeat.So its a fair bet you'll know a few faces. so I was truly delighted to see some friends from previous visits.Brian and Kerina, Sam and Robin, Gary and Christine and my hippy friend from Hull, Jane. Thank you all for spending time with me, listening to my story and being so supportive.Beautiful people, just like the family.Hope to see you all again soon.
