Bellerofon Hotel
Ranked #14 of 18 Hotels in Cirali
Reviewed June 11, 2007

My wife and I had pinned our hopes on the Belleraphon and Cirali wanting a holiday that met our mutually exclusive requirements for a relaxing time with lots to do. Our requirements were met in full.

the Bellerophon is a great hotel - just five chalets and a cookhouse set in a lovely semi-tropical garden on the beach. Hens and cats wander through the garden never bothering each other, even they are relaxed. The mood was set on arrival, we asked what time breakfast was served to be told 'whenever'. Dinner and breakfast were both served when you got to your open air table; the food was consistently good. The full Turkish breakfast was always spectacular with all the cheeses and jams and fruit and the four course diner, served by lamplight as all lighting must be subdued, was always a delight.

The chalets were comfortable, with a/c and ok beds, basic, but when each comes with a porch for relaxing and a hammock for further relaxing, who cares. In the garden were two Turkish lounging platforms: 'kuush'. These are shady and cool and a lovely place to sit and read. On the beach are sunbeds and parasols for more serious lounging. The beach is fine if a little stoney, the water is crystal clear and was quite warm in May. At any time we couldn't see more than twenty people on the beach; though the more public beach, near Olimpos and too far to see from the hotel, did have dozens of people, maybe even hundreds at the weekend.

The village has hardly any two storrey buildings and is a far cry from mass tourism, most of the hotels and pensions are on small olive or citrus farms. There are a few cafes, mostly cheap and all I tried were fine. There is excellent walking in the surrounding hills, enough to provide days of amusement, but the terrain is pretty rugged and the hills steep and high so best suited to experienced walkers who've remembered to bring decent shoes. The heat is a bit of a problem - climbing up for two hours in 30 degrees or more is an effort and that is in Spring. There is also the ancient city of Olimpos to explore, an enchanting place, where the remains of Lycian building are partially hiden by cyprus trees and flowers. All this and the Chimera, with fire coming ou of the ground; fantastic.

Back at the hotel the service was laid back, but attentive. All the other guests, all ten of them, were getting down to heavy duty chilling out too, even the children were Ok and I hate children.

In short we both loved it - I relaxed and I don't ever relax. We're going back next year.

If you are going do take books. Take good walking shoes, take a camera. Leave behind any stress, you won;t need it

Having worked harder in the last few months than during any time in our lives my wife and I (early 30's) felt the need to chill out in Turkey our favourite country. Although we had fancied going to Cirali for a while we found the website for Bellerofon quite by chance, but boy what a find!

Located at a protected 'Carretta Caretta' beach - the beach is quite literally on the doorstep - the sea is like a warm bath in July and a short stroll from the ancient site of Olympos.

The accommodation comprises 5 wooden huts with air conditioning and showers. Breakfast and dinner are served on the terrace - at the time you turn up. We usually feel the need to eat at a different place each night, but not here. Chef Noori lovingly prepares a variety of typical simple Turkish fare with all of the ingredients sourced locally.

You could easily spend a week in and around Cirali without getting bored but we hired a jeep locally for about £20 a day and visited Ulupinar, Phaeselis (great for swimming) and Adrasan.

Never been so relaxed, and we'll certainly return. Don't miss the Yanartas!

This is a small site situated directly on the beach at Cirali. There are 5 wooden bungalows each with their own balcony, bathroom, fridge, air con and hammock, reminded us of The Little House on the Prairie! The hotel is managed by Akif who is so helpful, with all the cooking done by Noori - the food is absolutely fantastic. There is a patio leading on to the beach where breakfast and evening meals are served along with shady seating areas for when the sun gets too hot to bear. Sunbeads and parasols are provided on the beach - combination of sand and stones but take shoes to swim in as very pebbly at waters edge. The nights are very dark, with lighting subdued to encourage the turtles on to the beach. The village is about a 10 minute walk or Akif lends out his bikes free of charge. Take lots of books - no where to buy anything in English!! Would highly recommend this hotel/hostel - if you want a chill out week with good food then this is the place
