“Really enjoyed our stay - thankyou very much!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We were travelliing around with the very first edition of Lonely Planet's Discover Turkey guidebook which had come out a couple of days before I left for Turkey.

We arrived at Patara just in time for sunset and saw where the Flower Pension was on the main road, which was the only pension mentioned to stay at in my guidebook though we could see there were many others while we were trying to find the beach before it was too late.
Wondering though if theres only one out of all these places to stay in my book will we have to spend time again hunting for a better place if its full or not looking too good...

When we pulled up at the Flower we were greeted by a cheery smiling young man who took us up the stairs to show us the room we could have.
it all looked great - clean, spacious, air con was a necessity!, tidy, very cute with mosquito curtains and great looking modern bathroom. He promised the wifi was good and showed us the router just outside our door.

All that for 60 lira which had fairly standard price for us during our travels down the coast from Istanbul though more on the lower side which was a relief.

He pointed out that there are lots of mosquitoes around so don't leave the door open. We noted there was good insect screens on the windows but we were hot and were looking forward to the air con anyway. He said they spray daily to make sure there are no mosquitoes lingering in the rooms - this is all the sort of stuff I like to hear and what shows intent to give good service.

He then asked if we would like to have dinner tonight for 20 lira each person we could have fresh fish or beef with salad. Which we took the offer of and headed on down as the barebecue was at its peak. Very nice dining area with plants and good lighting. He kindly chilled the wine we had with us (opened and corked from the night before us budget travellers!) and we had with our very nice food.
We had breakfast here the next morning which was very nice.

As with pretty much everywhere we stayed, automatic lights were in place here which is great to have the added security.

We were able to park the car overnight just near the main entrance into the pension. So overall we were very happy to have such a comfortable place to stay - no complaints whatsoever - except for the mosquitoes that had dinner with us while we had ours!

Room Tip: We had a room at the far end of the corridor upstairs with small balcony. Good wifi and nice and qu...

We stayed May 25-26 in the house apartment. The house is good, spacious, and clean. And it has a washing machine, which was great for our family of 4.
The staff were pretty awful. At first they would only talk to my husband, not ever to me. That was just weird. Then one of them decided he would "tickle" my 6 year old son by poking him hard. I finally had to tell him to stop because he was hurting my son. One day, the boys were laughing at a chicken in the yard below the dining area. The staff came over, saw what they were laughing at, and started throwing rocks at the chickens (hitting them hard) until they all ran away. The casual cruelty was horrendous. Maybe this was because we were there on the weekend, and the owners were away?? not sure, but do not recommend. Oh. And the food was terrible. Fatty gristly meat, old soggy brown salad.

Had a amzing time with such a fantastic dinner at the Flower Pension. The family is so friendly and helpfull. I would stay there again if I was back in Patara Beach. Nice and quiet location with 2 friendly little goats running around.

Just back from another stay at Flower pension. Once again was well looked after and had great relaxing time in this unspoilt part of Turkey. Food good as always and spotlessly clean rooms. Excellent accommodation on the Lycian way, so great walks and an amazing beach. Am already looking forward to going back next year.

We stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of a week of walking on the Lycian Way. Very friendly welcome from the family running it, Bekir even gave us a lift down to the beach one morning. The rooms are basic, but clean. We did have some mosquito issues our first night, realized they were coming in under the balcony door so problem solved with a towel tucked in the next night! Other than that, no complaints, just lots of compliments especially for the food and the relaxing ambience. There are a lot of comfy spots for you to sit outside, and one cool evening they even lit their fireplace on wheels on the open dining area which warmed us up nicely. Highly recommended!

Our group of 5 stayed here for 1 night at the end of a trekking holiday. The rooms and restaurant were immaculately kept and our hosts welcoming. Comfortable beds and decent sized rooms. Food in the restaurant was of a high standard and very reasonable. This would be a great base for a longer holiday in and around Patara

The Patara area was a very pleasant surprise. We were a quick drive to one of the best beaches in the world. The Patara ruins were also impressive and not over run by tourists. The hotel itself was not new but comfortable, people friendly, and location great.
