We spent 2 weeks at Odile at the beginning of September. This was our first visit to Cirali but we shall certainly be returning next year. A stunning beach with a relaxed friendlly atmosphere - the Odile is certainly a beautiful hotel. Lovely palms and gardens surround the pool in the older part of the hotel and the new pool with the pine chalets around is being developed to mirror this. The gardens are beautifully kept and provide much needed shade from the midday sun, creating a calm oasis that is just across the small road from the wonderful stretch of beach which is never crowded. Early morning walks before the sun got hot, turtle spotting in the freshwaters by the ruins of Olympos and snorkelling in the warm turquoise sea followed by long relaxing afternoons in the sunshine were how our days passed in Cirali. The evenings were spent experimenting with the many different restaurants on offer and although it is not gourmet cuisine it is usually good reasonably priced food served in very attractive settings and the fish was always perfect! It was a shame that at present Odile do not offer food or a bar service but I believe it will be reinstated next year. We stayed in both the new chalets and the original hotel rooms. Both were lovely, the chalets are beautifully fitted out and ideal for families, but I would imagine more noisy in the height of the season, whilst the original rooms (we stayed in room 33) are lovely for couples with balconies overlooking the gardens and surround the original pool which tends to be more tranquil.
The only niggles that we found were:
Breakfast was lovely but became a little repetitive after the first week, could do with a little more variety
Lashings of hot water in the evening but less in the mornings.
The management led you to believe that their english was better than it actually was - this lead to a couple of misunderstandings over the 2 weeks but no real problems
For a reasonably priced, relaxing break in the most stunning location it would be difficult to find better than this.
