We stayed in Ceylan Apartments in June 2009 for a week. It was our first time in Turkey, and we were worried about a language barrier or being unble to work out the Turkish way of life.
How surprised we were! We arrived at about 6am, after a perilous flight, and a 2 hour drive from Dalaman, but we were greeted, and someone was even so kind to haul our bags up 3 fligts of stairs to our room. Awaking a few hours later, we saw our room, which was clean and well presented, and although no toiletries were provided, which we expected, all other basic needs were there (bowls, plates, working fridge). The rooms were very hot, but air conditioning came at a cost, but we like heat and coped well, however if you don't, i recommend paying!
The view was beautiful, and we were able to hear the islamic prayers on the at night, which was oddly calming and the climbing hibiscus against the white wash walls added to the atmosphere
The pool was a reasonable size, and there were plenty of beds available, although the earlier you reserve one with your towel the better. The on site restaurant served a massive english breakfast for about 5 lira, which is a bargain! Though the slide is not recomended soon afterwards!
There were lots of themed entertainment evenings, including turkish night, pool party and kareoke, and the staff were really good at getting people involved!
We heard that the shop over the road was a great place to stay, and on meeting the owner (keep your key in you hand so he knows you stay at ceylan) he offered us free bread each day, so we also bought milk (for cereal we brought with us from england), salami for with the bread, and anything else we needed including frozen water for 1lira (and a must have, even just for a walk to the beach) I even once forgot my money, and the owner didnt mind, i definatly went back to pay!
Untimatly, Ceylan was a great little calm from the beach side assult you get from the restraunters, and I would definatly go back!!
