Kibala is set in a beautiful garden with stunning surroundings. Our chalet was simple but spotless and perfectly adequate with storage consisting of a wardrobe and bedside cabinets/drawers. We could have done with a chair or similar if only to throw clothes onto. Despite an earlier comment we found the bed really comfy.
Breakfast and dinner both consisted of several courses and were always freshly prepared and delicious (veggie for us) and we ate and drank some decent wines...and beer...and raki!! whilst listening to wonderful background music.
There are bikes for guests' use or for those who want to relax more there are a couple of hammocks and a typical Turkish raised wooden seating platform with cushions and narghile pipe.
It's only a short walk to the small village and wonderful beach both which had some decent enough cafes/restaurants where you could get a snack, full meal or just stop for a drink - both beer and wine freely available. There were also two or three shops selling gifts and clothing and a few supermarkets both in the village centre and surroundings.
We called on Carrie at Hotel Canada to say hello. Despite us being in a 'rival' hotel she was really helpful and made some good suggestions of what to do both in Cirali and when we moved on to Kaleici (Antalya old quarter) - thanks Carrie and for the tea for which we forgot to pay !!
It was also really good to meet with another TA member - Turkish Delight - who was staying at Kibala with her husband. Hope you both enjoyed the rest of your trip although you'll still be in Turkey yet you lucky things.
We stayed only 5 nights before moving on to a much more 'upmarket' hotel in Kaleici but honestly wish we'd stayed the full week with Bulent and his fantastic staff, Ness, Ismail, Efe and the cook ( I'm ashamed to say I didn't get her name). Highly recommended.
