Cirali, Olympos or Adrasan?


We're looking for a quiet 2 days (3 nights) Mid September, not into long walks (knee injury).We hesitate between the 3 destinations. By preference right now:

- Olympos Mountain Lodge (in Beycik). Raving reviews, food, pool and views. My preferred option so far. I think it's not that close driving to Cirali and other destinations (30-40 in?) and wondering if road is easy. However since we're not planning lots of sightseeing it might work just fine. And we have a car.

- Villa Lukka (Cirali): Like the hotel, a bit expensive but on the acceptable side. No Pool though. I heard mised reviews of the cirali beach in general (Pebble beach, not sure about loungers/umbrellas)

- Portalimo Lodge (Cirali): not walking distance to the beach but have a pool. Very basic bungalows though.

OR something else in Adrasan (at this stage just wondering, as it looks like a bit of a less discovered village than Cirali)

Your recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

There are sunbeds at the beach and unbrellas to use that are located in front of the restaurants at the beach..you can use their facilities but it is polite to order a small snack or drinks while you are there..they dont charge for the use of these umbrellas and sunbeds…and you can also buy small umbrellas in the markets very cheaply if you like.

The beach is open to the public and you can sit where ever you like.

the beach of cirali is a mix of sand and small pebbles

in mid Sept anywhere you go in cirali will be quiet..all the schools have gone back into session

there are plenty of places in cirali that offer bungalows and some with pools

check out the reveiws section

also have a look at the photos ; http://tinyurl.com/lqpxxkc

with 2 of the locations you have picked you will need a car to access the beach of cirali

also as for walking most places in Cirali are around 100-750meters to the sea so a walk of 5-10-15 minutes depending on where you are planning to stay..also it is accessable by bikes..many of the hotels offer free bike service or shuttle service to the beach if you are unable to walk or bike
