Special offer: £25 off all 2 week bookings.
Location is everything!... so whether you're a beach or pool lover, this 2 bedroom apartment is PERFECT as you really can't get much closer to both the beach and the swimming pool!!
This apartment enjoys one of the BEST positions on the whole complex as it has an enviable front-line beach and sea view location at The Sunset Beach Club. It is just a few steps from both Calis Beach (with FREE sunloungers and parasols) and looks out onto one of the 5 outdoor swimming pools and is close to one of the 3 kids splash pools. It is also situated near to all the main facilities such as the poolside bar, snack bar, restaurant and shop.
The excellent ground floor position makes it easily accessible for all ages. You can have family fun in the numerous pools, enjoy the amazing sunsets over the beach with a glass of wine on your patio or make friends at the nearby poolside bar. Being so close to the sea means that you will benefit from any sea breezes - which is an added bonus during the hot summer months!
This apartment is great for a self-catering holiday and benefits from air-conditioning throughout. With a double and twin bedroom, it is ideal for 1 or 2 couples travelling together, or a family up to 5 (when using the sofa bed in the lounge or a travel cot). Please note that the sofa bed is for use by children only. We can arrange cot and highchair hire if travelling with a baby/ young child.
As this is a ground floor apartment, it is good for families with young children as there are no high balconies to worry about. Another advantage is that it is easy to wheel a pushchair into the apartment without having to struggle to carry it upstairs. Plus as the accommodation is on one level, it is easy for older or slightly infirm guests. There is 1 small step off the patio into the garden area then a step up to the pool area (which can be avoided by walking around the pool if necessary).
Due to its fantastic location, the patio doors open out onto the patio which has magnificent views of the swimming pool, the beach and the sea. There is a small BBQ, outdoor dining tables and 4 chairs so is the perfect place for an al-fresco breakfast or lunch. There are 4 sun loungers for use of this apartment.
For your entertainment the open plan lounge features a TV and DVD player so please bring your favourite films/ kids DVDs to watch during your holiday. There is a basic satellite TV system which receives some English/ European/ Turkish programmes. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, microwave, oven, hob, large fridge/ freezer as well as all the essential cutlery and crockery for a self-catering holiday.
The bathroom features wc, basin, plus a bath with shower over it (quite a rarity in Turkey) and a washing machine (it is very common for this to be plumbed in the bathroom in Turkey).
The main bedroom has patio doors and lovely pool views, and has a double bed, wardrobe, drawers, 2 bedside cabinets as well as a safe and hairdryer. The second bedroom features twin beds, a large wardrobes and a bedside cabinet.
Please note that this is a NO SMOKING apartment however the owners will allow smoking on the patio.
In summary this 2 bedroom apartment is well suited for FAMILIES or COUPLES seeking a fun beach or pool holiday on a complex with outstanding facilities. The Sunset Beach Club really has everything you could be looking for whilst on holiday. As well as the outdoor pools, there is a wellness centre with a sauna, Turkish bath and treatments available (local charges apply). There is even an on-site shop, a poolside bar and lovely restaurant/ snack bar. Wi-fi internet access is available on the complex for internet browsing and emails (with your own laptop, small charge may apply). Alternatively many of the local bars and restaurants (such as Guven's) offer free internet access when buying a drink or a meal.
When you are ready for some activities, there are watersports available just a few minutes walk away at the nearby Fethiye Suf Club. A short 10 minute stroll brings you onto the main Calis Beach promenade with its laid-back bars and many restaurants.The surrounding area of Fethiye, Hisaronu and Olu Deniz can all be reached by the local public bus transport (caled the 'dolmus') which means that NO CAR HIRE is required when staying here. The dolmus now stops close to the complex so it is very easy to get around the local area.

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
This is a wonderful part of Turkey with dramatic mountain scenery, breathtaking sea views, sparkling clear waters and stunning sunsets (see our photo gallery for pictures of the area). You'll be spolit for choice for things to do in this area. You can combine a relaxing beach holiday with energetic sporting activities from watersports to paragliding, go off exploring ancient ruins and rock tombs or take one of many excursions on offer such as a boat trip or a jeep safari.
Experience the Turkish culture in the bazaar and local market, enjoy the local hospitality and tasty cuisine.. which is second to none! You'll find that the Turkish people are extremely friendly and welcoming, plus the cost of living is still cheaper than the UK and other EU countries (as Turkey is not in the euro zone and still has its own currency ... the Turkish Lira).. which makes your holiday spending money go further!
The climate is wonderful (with approximately 300 sunshine days per year) and temperatures are 30c+ degrees throughout the summer months. May, June and September are lovely months for families with younger children when it is slightly cooler with temperatures usually between the mid-high 20c degrees.
Calis is located 2.5 miles north of Fethiye and is a laid-back resort with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. It is not a full-on party place with wall-to-wall nightclubs so if you are looking for wild nightlife, then this is not the place for you. However if you enjoy relaxing days with plenty of nice bars and restaurants to choose from, with easy access to Fethiye and the surrounding area.. then this is a great place to stay.
With an amazing 4 km stretch of beach, you can always find your own peaceful spot on Calis beach. There are plenty of watersports and activities on offer at the nearby Fethiye Surf Club. The beach promenade is a lovely place to stroll along and is lined with shops, travel agencies (offering many excursions), cafes, bars and restaurants offering both Turkish and International cuisine. The local market takes place on Sunday so you can see the locals selling their wares. There is even the Sultan's City waterpark in Calis which is great fun for all the family.
From Calis, you can take the dolmus (local bus) or water taxi to Fethiye (don't forget your camera as the views from the water taxi are stunning). Still a lively working Turkish town, this is a great place to see the locals going about their every day lives and offers many restaurants and good shopping around the Old Town bazaar and impressive marina. The huge market takes place on Tuesday with more than 500 stalls ... definitely the place to barter for all your holiday bargains and a great place to buy fresh produce such as locally grown fruit and vegetables.
At the northern end of Fethiye bay is the harbour of Gocek. The village has grown around the extensive yacht marina and is a great place to visit and watch the rich at play! Just to the south of Fethiye is the popular resort of Olu Deniz with its stunning lagoon and beach... probably one of the worlds most photographed beauty spots. Adrenline junkies can paraglide from the top of Mount Babadag down onto the beach at Olu Deniz to enjoy the breath-taking scenary. Why not stop off en-route in the hills at Hisaronu or Ovacik for a bite to eat as it is generally cooler up here on hot days.
Other interesting places/ things to do in the area to visit include:
- Climbing up to the Lycian Rock Tombs in Fethiye
- Exploring the Ancient ghost village of Kayakoy
- A boat trip around the 12 Islands or to Butterfly Valley
- A jeep safari to Patara Beach
- A day return on the fast ferry from Fethiye - Rhodes, Greece so you can experience 2 countries in 1 holiday!
More excursions which can be organised from Calis include visiting the:
- Mud baths at Dalyan and the ruins of Caunos
- Beautiful gorge of Saklikent and the ruins of Tlos
- Maginificent ancient city and wonders of Ephesus
- The amazing white calcium terraces and mineral waters at Pamukkale
Activities include scuba diving, trekking, kayaking, quad biking, horse riding, bicycle hire .. the list goes on and on so you will never run out of things to do in this area!!

"Perfect apartment for a family holiday"
Dolphin 5 is a fantastic apartment at the Sunset Beach Club, spacious, practical, comfortable and a great location overlooking the beach & sea and beautiful views of the mountains above Fethiye. From the moment we booked with Nicola, we were kept well informed and everything was fantastically organised from airport transfers to being greeted warmly at resort by Nadine. Nothing too much trouble. The apartment was really well equipped; the wheeled shopping trolley very handy for the market trips! Water cooler machine was a plus, as was the security safe, comfortable patio chairs and apartments own sunbeds/cushions which saved the early morning rise to reserve pool sunbeds. Wifi access from the bar worked a treat. Main bedroom bed had a mattress topper which added to comfort - normally struggle to sleep when away because of bad back so this definitely helped. The complex was great, everything on hand, regular dolmus running into town, fantastic choice of local restaurants. 4th time visiting complex, 1st time in Dolphin 5, already booked to come back again next year. We can't wait..... Thanks Nicola & Nadine for making it a really relaxing holiday.
Thank you for taking the time to submit such a nice review. We are delighted that you have chosen Dolphin 5 again for your holiday next year at Sunset Beach. We looking forward to welcoming your family again in 2015.

"Heaven on earth!"
We have just come back from a 2 week stay at sunset beach club. Everything went smoothly from the moment we booked to when we sadly returned home. Nicola arranged everything perfectly before we left and Nadine was on site to help with anything from holiday advice to booking excursions to suit our personal needs. The apartment itself is in a fantastic position, right by the pool, poolside bar/restaurant and overlooked the sea which was just a stones throw away. The apartment has everything you need for a self catering holiday with a fully equipped kitchen, including fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There is also air con which you don't have to use often as there is a lovely breeze coming from the sea. There is a table and four chairs on the patio area overlooking the pool/beach and also four sun loungers allocated to the apartment so no early mornings trying to get your towel on a bed before anyone else beats you to it! We had some wonderful evenings sat outside watching the world go by and the staff at the poolside bar!/restaurant were so friendly and made us feel like we were family. Nothing was too much trouble. Sunset beach is located within easy walking distance of the promenade where there are some fabulous bars and restaurants serving delicious meals ranging from traditional Turkish, Italian,Chinese,Indian or British! The waiters obviously encourage you to eat at their restaurants, but they are not over the top and don't hassle you too much. If you find the heat too much and don't feel like walking the local buses (dolmus)pass directly outside sunset beach every few minutes, and it only costs 2 Turkish lira to get to nearby fethiye, which has the local market every Tues, shops,bars, restaurants, larger supermarkets and a harbour.
There are plenty of places to visit and you will never be short of things to do, excursions are very reasonable, the only problem you have is finding the time to do everything!
We travelled as a family of 5 with 2 teenage children and a ten year old. Sunset beach is somewhere that can suit everyone's holiday needs, it's in a quiet area of calis beach for people that want a nice relaxing holiday, but also within distance of bars, restaurants etc if you want a lively holiday!
We had the best holiday ever at Sunset beach and we will definitely be booking again soon.
Many thanks to Nicola, Nadine and all the hard working team at Sunset beach for a fabulous holiday from start to finish.
Wow.. where do I start? What a totally amazing review! I am so pleased that you enjoyed your 1st trip to Turkey so much. Thank you for highlighting all the positive aspects about Dolphin 5 apartment, the Sunset Beach complex and the surrounding area of Calis Beach. We would be delighted to welcome your family back again in the near future.

"Great Apartment- Brilliant Holiday"
My wife and I stayed in Dolphin 5 at Sunset Beach Calis for 2 weeks in July 2014, booking via Maison-Sol Holidays.
The apartment absolutely First Class. We had a great 2 week holiday, apartment very well appointed, just like being at home, except brilliant sunshine everyday.
Apartment has everything one could need, washing machine/dishwasher/cooker/sunloungers etc. Complex also well served having small shop/wellness centre hairdresser and of course numerous pools and bar/restaurant all immediately accessible from front ot apartment.
Great to sit on balcony having breakfast with fantastic seaview across beach. Beach just across road with free sunlongers.
Nicola made booking very simple and easy in the UK, and Nadine in Turkey was very helpful in resort and also provided welcome grocery pack.
Complex is very convieniently situated at end of Calis Promenade, out of complex to right to Calis surf club and a number of bars, to left just a short walk (10/15mins) to main promenade with many bars and good restaurants and shops. Local Dolmus buses stop right outside complex taking you to Calis or Fethiye for 2TL each. Local markets at Calis-Sunday or Big market in Fethiye-Tuesday are a must, again Dolmus takes you straight there.Markets are a great experience (bartering is a must) a great place for 'Genuine Fakes'. Lots of trips are available locally. Full day boat trips from Fethiye harbour are a great way to pass a day with lunch provided and stops for swimming in quiet bays. Fethiye is a good place to pass some time visting The Old Town and Fish Market, possibly travelling back to Calis via water taxi across the bay where it is not unusual to see the odd Dolphin or large Turtlein Fethiye Bay.
To sum up,A great holiday in a great apartment with fabulous sunsets everynight from apartment balcony.
Thank you Nicola and Nadine, we look forward to seeing you soon.
Ann and Roy, Swinton, Manchester.
Thank you for taking the time to submit such an excellent review. We are delighted that you had a great holiday and were happy with both the booking service from myself and in-resort assistance from Nadine. Thank you for pointing out some of the great benefits of the apartment, complex and the surrounding area. We would be very happy to help you with any future holiday plans.

our second holiday at dolphin 5 .or stay was brilliant .overlooking the sea and the pool on hand just so relaxing .we arrived late and we were tired so decided to unpack and have a shower and the restaurant there very kindly fetched our meal over to our terrace .the little buses stop right outside the apartments every 5 min so no worry's about getting anywhere and there really cheap .some lovely restaurants around a walk down to the surf bar is a must . the best restaurant to visit is called sat ,a bit more expensive but worth a visit .suggest getting a taxi though its quite a walk .

"Perfect apartment, Perfect location. Loved every minute."
We stayed in Apartment Dolphin 5, and i must say we had the best view, i ate my breakfast every morning admiring the views of the beach and the mountains.
The apartment is located right next to the swimming pool, the bar/restaurant, and the little convenient shop, which is perfect for stocking up on essentials such as bread and milk etc.
One of the best things is being able to sit on the balcony or get lunch ready and still keep an eye on the children. If your in the bar etc and forget something you dont have to walk far at all to your apartment!
The apartment itself is very clean, one double bed in the master room which overlooks the pool, the bed is comfortable and there is plenty of wardrobe space and a chest of drawers. The childrens room had 2 twin beds and also plenty of wardrobe space. You have all the essentials you need in the kitchen to cook your own meals etc.
The Sunset Beach club itself is run by very friendly and helpful staff. Nadine was excellent and dealt with any queries very quickly, she was brilliant at advising on best trips out. and orgainising transfers to and from places. There are Dolmus (Buses) that run all the time directly outside the resort to take you into Calis itself or Fethiye. These were perfect, cheap and very convenient.
Directly opposite Sunset beach club is the beach, Perfect. There is always plenty of sunbeds etc. A short walk along the beach to the right s the windsurf
beach area, this is also excellent and very relaxing.
Basically in a nutshell you cant go wrong.
Thank-you for such a glowing review. We are delighted that you have had such a great holiday and enjoyed the position of this apartment on the complex. Thanks also for pointing out some of the great benefits and facilities of the apartment and facilities. We hope to be able to welcome your family back to the apartment some time in the future.

Great Holiday, easily booked direct with owners, professional to deal with and very helpful, transfer by pre booked taxi went perfectly, apartments are nice and well stocked with fertilities and very clean, the apartments are in a perfect front position overlooking the pool and sea, best of both world in seconds, wind/kite surfing just on the beach for those that partake or just to watch, pool spa haham and bar all great, 10 min walk to centre and dolmus bus picks u up outside and takes you anywhere for less than a £1. great restaurants close by, great fish market in fethyei but your fish and the surrounding restaurant of your choice will cook and do the trimmings, fabulous ! great trips to great places but DO NOT do the horse riding, very dangerous 4 people hospitalized our our trip, out of control horses, poor guides who spoke no English, no instruction or training, serious accident awaits, all other trips are great, find Gerrys boat fethyei harbour for a great day out, free fishing available, trip great food great,
Thank-you for such a positive review and pointing out the benefits of the apartment and complex and what you enjoyed about your holiday. We always try to provide a great, professional service and we would be very happy to welcome you back again in the future.

"Extremely Good Value Apartment"
We stayed at the apartment for a week in June 2013 and had a fantastic holiday. Nicola and Nadine both looked after us well - organising transfers and a food package which were both good value.
The apartment was clean and well equipped and was in a brilliant location right next door to the pool and the beach. Having sun loungers, which were for the sole use of the apartment, were also amazing on days when the pool became busy. We would definitely recommend the apartment to friends and family.
Thank you for submitting this great review. We are delighted that you had a lovely holiday and felt well looked after. We are happy that you would recommend it to others and we would love to welcome you back again in the future.

"Dolphin 5 and Sunset Beach Club - what a cracker"
In September 2012 my brother, his family and I holidayed at Calis, Fethiye. We stayed at Dolphin 5 which is an apartment located at the popular Sunset Beach Club. The apartment is ideally situated in a prime position at the front of the complex directly across from the Aegean pool-side bar, the pool being next to the apartment and the beach being literally on the door step. I have to say the apartment is second to none and comprises of two bedrooms - one with a double bed the other with two singles, bathroom, kitchen - which is well equiped if you wish to dine in and lounge area which also has sleeping facilities for children. The apartment is fitted out to a high standard. The complex has it's own shop where you can purchase your basic requirements, and is only marginally more expensive than the local super markets. The complex also has it's own fitness centre and spa centre which offer great rates for treatments. Food can also be ordered at the pool-side bar. The complex is very well cared for. Sunset Beach Club is situated well for getting out and about, the dolmus bus which is a cheap mode of transport can be caught at Sunsets entrance and is very regular every twenty minutes to half an hour, from Calis is goes through to Fethiye from where you can travel to all local areas. At the entrance of Sunset turn right and on your left is the famous Surf-Club which was included in the latest Bond film, turn left at Sunset and a short walk takes you onto Calis promenade where there are many good restaurants, bars, shops etc. I have to say one of our favourite restaurants was George's which serves Turkish/English cuisine and the Turkish Otterman Roll is absolutely delicious, good food, good value and great company. From Calis promenade turn left over the bridge, this is where you can take the water taxi which does regular trips to Fethiye and return, a lovely relaxing trip and a great day out, go and return as you wish it's just like a return bus ticket. Fethiye has a large market which is well worth a visit. Calis also has a market day. There are many trips that are definitely worth going on, we went on the Jeep Safari and the Twelve Ireland Boat trip which worked out between £8-10 for each trip, these are full days, such great fun and a lovely lunch included (great value). Calis is a lovely place which has culture through and through, lovely people who have all the time in the world for you and what is nice to say is that it's not overly commercialised. We would like to compliment all who are involved in running Sunset, they all do a terrific job and are pleasant at all times. All in all a brilliant holiday and we look forward to returning soon, a lovely apartment located on a great complex aptly named, and the sunsets well what can I say - out of this world.
