Ikiz pension is in the quiet and beautiful village of Cirali, with the fabulous shingle, stone and sand beach about 10 minutes walk away through a shady path between orange trees where chickens roam freely. The family who own / run it were very helpful, friendly and welcoming as were the members of staff. The bungalow we had for our 10 day holiday had a main room with double bed, kitchen area, TV etc, and a bathroom and twin single bedroom coming off it. The room was spotlessly clean, with fresh towels for the bathroom / beach as well as room cleaning done every few days. There was a small balcony with chairs and a table outside and steps down to a grassed area with hammock. A great breakfast of lovely fresh produce..fruit, salad, cheeses, ham, eggs, pancakes etc.. was served every morning outside under the veranda and free bikes were provided which we used to explore Cirali. This pension is in a great location, in between the two major attractions of Chimaera and the ruins of Olympus, each at opposite ends of the long unspoilt beach.
The Ikiz restaurant at the beach was fabulous, free tea and coffee is available to residents whenever required... we ended up eating there most nights (and several lunches), although there are a few others restaurants at the beach and in the village centre. The menu was varied with lovely fresh fish and meat skewers, salads etc. as well as complimentary dips and bread served before the meal. Various wines were available but were surprisingly expensive, similar to UK prices (the only negative I can think of!).
The beach is the nesting ground for turtles, we were delighted to see some hatch and make their way to the sea early one morning, a highlight of the holiday.
A big thank you to the Ikiz family and staff for looking after us, and for sorting out the mix up with the company organising our transfer to the airport..we did make it for the flight, it was delayed by a couple of hours!
