“Family run pension in beautiful location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

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!

Room Tip: ...think ours was B1, was the best bungalow available in my opinion!

Ikiz is a family pension in a quite place, at the foot of the picturesque mountain Olimpos by the sea. The host and hostess are really good people, nice and friendly. We stayed in bungalow which is a two-room wooden house with a bathroom and cooking facilities. The house is new, even too new (you do feel your head in the morning after breathing freshly varnished wooden walls during nighttime).
Do not hesitate to dine at their restaurant at the beach. It’s open-air, great view, delicious cuisine, and they give discounts and free meals from the house for Ikiz guests. And also free beach towels and shower if stay at their pension.
They provide free bicycles to cycle to the local market which is in 2 min drive and 10 min walk along the country road. There is a shuttle that goes every 15 min to take you up the hill to the highway. You can camp at the backyard for a lower price.
The pictures on the web showed airy and spacious green area. Well, the place is green but the window is overlooking the blank walls of another two buildings at a 7-10 meter distance. It wasn’t an issue at all as we came for the sea and outdoors but there exists this inconsistency between reality and photos that can be a little bit tricky.
Hammocks at the lawn are great idea!!
Many thanks to the staff, host, and hostess for a warm welcome and hospitality!

First of all, the owner organised a transfer from Antalya at reasonable price. Very plesant meeting. Of course, there were some misunderstandings thanks to language barrier, but all problems were solved quickly.

We were offered free tea during whole staying at this place.

The room has 1 extra bed with no additional charge, air-condition system, shower room, TV set. In the garden there are a few hammocks, where you can have a nap any time.

The pension is located on the 2nd line from the sea, on the main street with a few shops and restaurants, just in the middle between 2 main places to see: Chimaera mountain and ancient city Olympos. The way to the sea between orange trees is short and beautiful.

The best thing is that the pension has its own restaurant at the beach, where you can have a free cup of tea or coffee, plus a great amount of free snacks in addition to the main course.

The least thing we liked: not regular room cleaning - the towels were changed only twice during our staying.

But, anyway, the place is worth to stay in

Room Tip: if you have possibility, choose one of 3 bungalows
