We spent 4 nights at the Ciragan Palace and had a wonderful stay! We had been here before, in Dec. 2006, and we had very good memories about it, and I was curious to see if something had changed over the years. Well everything is still there! Beautiful, large, exquisitely decorated rooms and bathrooms, flawless and attentive service, stunning and well kept grounds. From the moment we walked in everything was perfect.
Breakfast buffet is very good, with freshly squeezed juices, lots of food to choose from and a good selection of healthy options (I'm not a bacon and eggs lover). We also had dinner at the Ottoman restaurant, on the terrace with a superb view on the Bosphorous; It's truly a culinary experience!
My two teenage children and I, spent some time in the SPA and in the gym. I experienced the "turkish bath massage" which was absolutely blissful! The gym is large and well equipped with modern Technogym machines for cardio workout. The outdoor swimming pool is very large, you can swim lengths. Both staff at the SPA and at the swimming pool are very kind and helpful.
The only turndown are prices at the SPA. I spent 85 Euros for a 45 min. pedicure, which is extremely expensive even on Swiss standards.
A part from prices at the SPA we truly had an exceptional holiday and we definitely would like to come back here.
