Tucked into pine-cloaked mountains overlooking Olu Deniz, this property looks out over hills to the Med in the distance. What’s more, its location is secluded - perfect if you’re looking for peace and quiet. That said, there are a few morning courtesy buses to take you to Olu Deniz when you want to pick up the pace.
As you’d expect, it’s the views that steal the spotlight. For the best, settle around the Dolphin pool - its terrace seems to dissolve into the green backdrop. There are two other pools nestled in the gardens, too. One is surrounded by shady trees and has its own waterfall, while the other pool is set just above.
As far as looks go, the hotel blends into its surroundings. Pan-tiled annexes are tiered into the hillside with some of them taking advantage of the widescreen panoramas on offer. And they’re built using lots of pine in a nod to traditional Turkish mountain architecture. Inside, the rooms focus on homely charm. Think rose pinks and reds matched with wooden balconies.
On the food front, there’s the main Pinewood restaurant - awash with fresh pine and white linen and lined by an elevated terrace so you eat outdoors at breakfast and dinner. For pre-dinner drinks though, the place to be is the Sunset Bar. With its bloom-filled terraces stepped down the hillside, it’s a great spot for watching the sun set over the mountains.

What a lovely place
We stayed here August 2013 for 10 nights as part of a family holiday having first been to Istanbul. After the heat and busyness of the city this was perfect for the calm and relaxing rest we needed. The resort is out of the main town (easily accessible by taxi or bus in about 10 mins) so its not possible to walk to anywhere. There are snack bars for lunchtime and excellent day-time entertainment activities for kids (&dads!) but if you like to get out, you could feel trapped here. We wouldn't normally pick such an isolated hotel, but chose it partly as it had good write ups for families. My teenagers had a great time, made friends and were able to do their own thing safely. For us, the peaceful and undemanding environment was priceless. There are three nice-sized pools and the poolside loungers/parasols were very well maintained with enough for everyone. There were lots of nice little touches - like cold towels handed out in the afternoons and dinner by the candle-lit pool. We took full advantage of the excellent spa facilities and I had my first Turkish bath and the best massage ever! The resort has a system where everything is added to your room and paid for at the end of your stay. this can be daunting - but the receptionists were happy to print an update out whenever we wanted, so it was easy to keep an eye on spending and no worries about changing money. Travelling with teenagers We had 2 adjacent rooms which were at the top of the resort (near the chickens which woke my husband in the mornings but I thought they we brilliant). My only small gripe about the rooms were that the mattresses and curtains were a bit thin. The views from our balcony were stunning across the valley, the pines smelt wonderful and the gardens were beautifully tended. We loved all the food - buffet style with lots of choice (the honeycomb at breakfast was out of this world) and good service and smiles from all of the staff. The evening entertainment was excellent quality every night. Overall we had a wonderful stay. Montana Pines lived up to all the good reviews we read and we would definately go back.More
Best hotel ever!!
Quite simply the best hotel we have ever stayed in. Perfect location with great views over coastline and mountains. Food was excellent and served either on terrace outside or by the pool .. both lovely settings. Staff helpful and friendly. Faultless.More

Don't let standards slip please
Our third visit to this lovely hotel. The staff were as fantastic, friendly and efficient as always. We have always stayed in the standard accommodation but this year were allocated a room at the very back - no view and very dark - which was disappointing. The beach towels were thin and had holes in them and were replaced for us. The food wasn't quite as good as on our previous visits and the hotel seemed quite crowded which we couldn't understand as there are the same number of rooms as before. The gardens were not quite as manicured. There were huge numbers of wasps this year but apparently that sometimes happens and you can't blame the hotel for that. On our previous visits they weren't in evidence. We still enjoyed our stay. There is a lot to do in the area if you want more than relaxing in the sun. The hotel is in a beautiful setting but it felt as if some penny pinching by the management meant that it was struggling to maintain its own high standards.More

Wonderful time Beautiful Place
Wow the Montana Pine resort has a warm & friendly atmosphere, from the welcoming drink on arrival to the waiters giving out pashminas, if the evenings were a bit chilly. The staff from the cleaners, gardeners, reception, waiters and General Manager always greated you with a smile and cheery hello. We had a superior valley room with excellant view over the Dolphin pool with the moutains in the distance. The choice of food was excellant with the chefs always cooking fresh from the centre console. Breakfasts were what ever you wanted from fruit, continental or cooked even had a honeycomb for you to take a piece from. Dinner had a great variety with again the chefs cooking fresh. The general manager even served the soup for you and the dessert table groaned under a veritable cornucopia of tempting cakes, sweets etc. The must do thing is the Montana boat trip - relaxing on the deck on thick cushions, swimming in the sea, lunch prepaired by one of the crew, then more relaxing or swimming before we sailed to another inlet for tea. This was rounded off with sails up, as we came back to Fetyia, with the sun setting and a glass of fiz what more could you want. As the boat only takes 14 people you got to know everyone, making friends too. We had a turkish bath and massage treatments at the Crocus Spa - great. The only thing I would say that in October the pools are freezing, it would be nice for one to be heated, but that is the only thing. The shuttle bus runs three times in the morning and three times in the late afternoon, which was very handy.(Down to the beach and blue lagoon), The famous Lycean Way walk starts just outside the hotel and if you walk for about 3/4 hour the views over to the blue lagoon are amazing. The entertainment was good, on each evening at about 9.00pm. We went to the sunset bar a couple of evenings to watch the beautiful sunset over the sea and mountains. The hotel have their own photographer and he is great, even making me look good!!!! All in all this is an excellant Hotel, with all your needs met by the most helpful staff that I have come across. We hope to return in September for my birthday.More

Second Visit - Loved going back
This is a lovely place to stay and explore from, The warning were for bad weather, October is a gamble, but it was just right, a little rain one day. The hotel is clean and fresh looking with fantastic helpful staff. The food is excellent and the choice vast. Something for everyone, no matter how fussy they might be. Couple of minor warning, having been there twice in October. The pools are freezing, honestly they are that cold. on both trips we have found the range of wine available shrink as they reach end of season. The Spa is a bit of a nothing and not the greatest. It is a little small for the hotel and the steam room really needs updated. while these niggles are real they are so minor compared to the positives they in no way spoilt our holiday. We had to rooms and they are excellent. And to make life even better as a returning guest we got discount on everything we had or did while we were there. So just a beautiful place to be, with the trees all about and so much to see and visit. I suspect we may return again.More
