Caretta Caretta Pension
Ranked #2 of 54 Cirali B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 April 2013

We stayed for four nights as part of a holiday walking stretches of the Lycian Way. Cirali itself is in a beautiful setting: a lovely long pebbly beach (almost deserted when we were there in April), views of the snow-topped mount Olympos, and no high rise hotels. The accommodation and cafes behind are all low key and were only just starting to open up. We loved staying at Caretta Caretta Pension.The accommodation is simple but clean and meets all your needs with a small verandah overlooking the garden with herbs and hens and cockerels running around. Durmus and his family made us very welcome.The breakfasts were superb and we also had an evening meal on three occasions which were also very good home cooking.We even sampled the teas made from herbs grown in the garden. The pension is set back further from the beach than some accommodation in Cirali but we had free use of bikes if needed.We were sad to leave Cirali and Caretta Caretta but hope we may revisit sometime.

my wife and I are vegans , Durmus and his mother were so kind to prepare authentic Turkish meals that met our needs , the food was fantastic , the living was (so) easy, we loved it .We were only planning to stay 4 nights but stayed much longer and we were sorry to go . Cirali and Olympus are worth a visit

My wife and I spent two nights at Caretta Caretta Pension as part of our winter get-away. We experienced extraordinary hospitality, great home-cooked food, and a very relaxing break. Being winter, the weather wasn't great, but we were more than content to sit next to the fire, read a book and sip a cup of tea.

The family who runs Caretta Caretta are simply delightful. While there's no shortage of places to stay in Cirali, it's hard to imagine that any of them rival the friendliness of Caretta Caretta.

we had a nice time at caretta pension thanks to durmus and his parents. the food is wonderful and cirali is a very peaceful place in the off season. the fact the restaurants were closed meant we got to taste the wonderful home cooking. they also have a very friendly and curious cat. rooms are a good size, simple but clean and the a/c was very effective on the cold nights. highly recommended.

Caretta Caretta pension is small, beautifully located and truly welcoming. It is a short distance from the village centre and beach (about a 10 minute walk or 3 minutes on a bike, provided by the pension). There are 4 chalets, simply furnished, fresh and clean, each with air conditioning, bathroom and veranda. I loved the size and location of the pension. It is so peaceful. At night all you can hear are the frogs and the chickens! The food is excellent, home cooked, delicious. The breakfasts are amazing. We were given omelettes, (the eggs are from the chickens that wander around the garden all day), pancakes, fresh fruit, and more, Turkish tea, herb tea (from the garden) and the best marmalade and preserves I have ever eaten, anywhere! You can choose to eat in the pension in the evening too, which was great when we had been out all day. Caretta Caretta will not suit a visitor who wants sophisticated, hotel type facilities. It is absolutely perfect if you want peace, fresh local food, culture, walking, swimming and to experience the warmth and generosity of a family run pension. Any questions that we had were answered and information and advice given, so we saw and did everything that we wanted to. The pension owner is generous and really helpful, and made our stay there very special.

Cirali beach is huge, so that you never feel that it is crowded. You can walk along the beach to the ruins of Olympus, a truly magical experience early in the morning. From Cirali we went on a short walk along the Lycian way, visited Phaselis (30 min drive), Myra (Demre, 1.45 hrs) and other sights. There are Bazaars in Kumluca (buy the mountain honey) and Kemer.
