The hotel is in a perfect spot in Cirali, which is a great destination for a do-nothing beach holiday. The staff are very accommodating and made our stay enjoyable and special (even down to the cleaning staff leaving flowers on our bed). The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and very photogenic. The picturesque beach is 5 minutes walk away and leads to many restaurants, one of which belongs to this hotel. The food there is superb and the staff were always friendly and made us feel like old friends. They also cook the best lamb chops on the planet!
The hotel room we had had a balcony and was spacious and very clean. The bathroom was well equipped with hairdryer, an abundance of towels and a great shower. One word of advice for those not used to Islamic countries is to not sleep with the windows open, as a 5.30am call to prayer can be somewhat disruptive to sleep patterns. The air-con was fortunately very effective and quiet. There are no TV's in the room but we felt this was a good thing. Paper cups for tea/coffee were a tad annoying but that's a small criticism. Breakfast is served til 10.30/11 and when we missed it one day they still cobbled one together for us.
Cirali itself is small and off the beaten track but that was part of the attraction for us. It's safe and pleasant to walk around at any time of day and night.
Sitting in the grounds at night drinking wine, with the smell of jasmine in the air will make you realise how far behind you've left your everyday life. We loved it and would come back without a second thought.
