“Lovely views”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We walked upto Alanya castle which we felt was a highlight of our trip. We took our time and enjoyed the views and a meal on the way back down. For the castle itself, it certainly isnt worth the entry fee, as you get the same experience on the walk up.

“Stunning views”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

We visited the castle in June 2014 and the views are stunning. We got the bus up from Alanya bus station for 2 lira each. Gorgeous views on the way up in a very comfortable air conditioned bus. It's up a very steep winding road so there was no way we would've made it if we walked! And the bus is much cheaper than the 60 lira the taxis were offering! The entrance fee was 15 lira each. The castle itself isn't that big. It only took us about 40 minutes to walk around but it does offer stunning views of the surrounding Cleopatra beach and Alanya that offers lovely photos opportunities. I did expect it to be bigger and more 'castle-like' and was just a little disappointed but it is worth a visit.

“Superb panoramic views and dripping with history.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

The castle is extremely popular with the tourists but was not overcrowded.

From the great hight of the parapets the views are amazing overlooking Cleopatra beach to the west and the harbour to east.

Entry is not over priced and souvenirs are available from the stalls outside. There is a small café/bar 200 metres away. As it has no competition it would be easy for them to overcharge but the owners are very friendly and do not take advantage.

Visitors would be advised to take drink with them into the castle as refreshments are not available once inside.

All in all a very pleasant way to spend a morning or afternoon.

“Nice views”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Nice views from the castle. The entrance fee is 15TL. There is a nice family-run bar close to the entrance of the castle, with great views too - recommended:)
