My family insisted that I give Incirliev 6 out of 5 stars, but the Trip Advisor website isn’t cooperating! Last August, my family of 2 adults and 3 kids took an amazing trip to Turkey. We went to 3 areas – Istanbul, Alacati, and Cappadocia. The entire trip was so memorable, but we all agree that our time on the Aegean Coast at Incirliev was the high point of our trip. From the moment we entered the courtyard, we felt as if we had been transported to an oasis filled with beautiful, colorful flowers dripping from the balconies, lush plants, and the most magnificent tree with ripe figs hanging from the many branches. We were greeted by glasses that were brimming with fresh squeezed lemonade and adorned by a floating flower. The staff was thoroughly welcoming and pleasant. Voila – instant rejuvenation, and this was only after 5 minutes! One only needs to read a few of these reviews and you get the picture – this place is very special. The courtyard and rooms are beautiful and peaceful, spacious yet cozy. Relaxing and inviting in every way. Yet what really sets Incirliev apart from other beautiful inns and hotels anywhere are the hosts, Sabahat and Osman, and their staff.
Sabahat and Osman are the most wonderful hosts because they are wonderful people. They are welcoming and gracious. Kind. Well-traveled, experienced, and knowledgeable. They have already thought of everything that you need, even before you knew you needed it. Every recommendation Sabahat gave us was spot on, from the beaches, to the restaurants, to our day trip to Ephesus. By our 2nd day, our mouths would start to water around 5 pm because we knew that wherever we were at the moment – be it the beach or a day trip – we would soon return to Incirliev and would be greeted with tea and a delicious piece of cake or cookies. Waking up was actually a good thing because it meant we got to eat breakfast soon-the best, most delicious breakfasts ever! I could go on and on here, from the daily surprise treats, to the incredible fresh spread on the buffet table (the many choices posed the most difficult decisions of the day), to Osman’s incredible jams. How many times can I say incredible? It has been difficult eating jam out of a store-bought jar ever since.
I must also underscore that Sahabat and Osman have the most amazing staff. The service they gave was perfection – attentive without being stuffy or overbearing. The staff is professional, and so kind, sincere, and genuine. We were always greeted with smiles throughout the day, and we always felt well cared for, incredibly relaxed, and just plain happy!
There is one negative thing I have to say about Incirliev … leaving! Thank you Sabahat, Osman, and Staff for providing us with treasured memories for many, many years to come!
