I have been to marmaris, stayed at marmaris and got the teashirt, thay is why I come to Fethiye. It is busy busy, you cannot walk down the street without being hassled and to top it all there is at least 4 McDonnalds, enough said!!!
If the likes of Kerrametin keep this sort of rif raff out of Olu then he will get my vote.As Kevin say "you always have the choice". By the way if you like Marmaris so much I have a 2 bedroom apartment, brand new and furnished for sale, very cheap please get in touch.

You cant compare Marmaris with Olu Deniz.. thats unrealistic. Marmaris is a large town with a busy harbour/port whereas Olu was originally a village. I love to escape from the noise and madness of Marmaris to the peace of Olu in the summer.

I don't think another Marmaris style resort would be welcome in Calis. So in your face as opposed to a laid back resort where if you want a bit of 'action ' you can find it if required. Who needs McDonalds & Asda in Turkey???

I am not saying I want to live in Marmaris or create another version of it. The whole infrastructure in Marmaris is geared towards promoting tourism. The traders in the Hisaranou area are really struggling to make ends meet. I know a number of traders and most lost money last season. The traders want to know where are the tourists and why are they not coming to Hisaranou. A good friend of ours had to sell his car to pay off his restaurants debts.

The main decisions as to what areas should be marketed by tthe tour operators are made in late March. You come to Hisaranou in late march and the place is like a bomb site. The tour operators go away thinking the area is a disaster. It must be the responsibility of the mayor to ensure that all this building work that takes place is completed in time for the tour operators visits. At present you can stay in some hotels in the area for 35GBP for 14 nights. How can a hotel operator make a reasonable profit. they hope to make a profit by being totally reliant on these guests eating and drinking in the hotel.What happens these hotels fall into disrepair and get poor write ups as substandard.

The latest decision of the mayor is that every bar and restaurant in the Olu Deniz area must charge a minimum of 4TL for a beer.So the smaller bars that are more like pubs have lost their advantage. It is authority sticking its nose in the free market.

what I want to see is a prosperous Olu Deniz area offering the best holidays in Turkey.With prosperity comes better hotels better facilities and better roads. This does not have to include McDonalds or Burgerking

I remember Marmaris, when it was a pretty village.  Then when it was a smallish resort and now a biggie.  it has lost it's character and personally, I am not a fan, however, lots of tourists absolutely love it there.
In my opinion OluDeniz is much better, but, yes the council should be much better organised, the roads are not in good repair and everything is left until the last minute and beyond, however, the mayor has done some good things in the previous four years and hopefully will do more in the next.  
I think more should be done to help business in general.  Taxation is very high, national insurance contributions are high and income is low.  Plus of course, rents are expensive and horror of horrors the tenant has to pay the landlord's tax liability rather than office/shop/premises rental moneys being tax deductable.

Is it true that the mayor was given the choice of a golf course being built or the Nicholas Centre shopping area?

I do agree,a lot of progress has been made in the area over the years.It must be a difficult job.I hope that as things progress farther the natural beauty of the area is not spoilt.
