“A piece of paradise ”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

What can we say but fantastic .. I stayed here with my Turkish partner and his children and we all totally fell in love with caretta caretta pension. We arrived after a very long journey to be met by Durmuş who instantly made us feel right at home . Our 2 bedroom lodge was number 1 which, was very nicely decorated and extremely clean . The bathroom has a massive walk on shower with a shower head at each end. The bathroom again was extremely clean and very nicely decorated . The children's bedroom had bunk beds and a single bed with a wall mounted flat screen TV and air con. The main bedroom has ample enough storage space plus air con and flat screen TV. outside were 2 hammocks The lodge had ample enough cupboard and a private veranda with sitting and table .

Now onto the food.. We opted for dinner every evening (7 euros p p)and can say we were extremely pleased we did .. as I mentioned my partner is Turkish and he was more than impressed with the dinner and bfast ..Durmuş's mum is a fantastic cook and I wish I could take her home with me ..

caretta caretta is about 7 mins bike ride from the beach but , there are free bikes (ladies bikes , bikes with child seat available for use . We found every bike we used to be of good working condition.

We will definitely be returning to Caretta caretta ..and we would highly recommend it to anyone .

Rooms were clean and decorated with new, high-quality furnitures. Air condition was a little bit noisy. Breakfast was quite well. It is operated by a cheerful and helpful family. Hot drinks are free of charge during the stay. It is also possible to use bicycles for free. But they are a little bit old and not well-kept. There are lots of chickens around. You can feed them.

Very rarely do my boyfriend and I go to places where we think 'we must return here', but this is definitely the case not just with Cirali in general, but with Durmuş and his family's place specifically. From the large delicious breakfasts in the morning to the bikes that you can freely use to the welcoming common sitting area to the beautiful flowers everywhere, this place is spectacular. Durmuş even kindly gave me a bottle of wine when he found out it was my birthday. He was very helpful in booking us a boat tour and giving us suggestions of places to explore. We would highly recommend the dinners - the home cooked food (especially the manti-so good!) is fantastic. The rooms had air conditioning, nice showers and hammocks you could relax on out front. All in all, we were sad to leave and would return in a heartbeat. Great value for a place where you meet nice people, relax in beautiful surroundings and eat delicious food.

Thank to Durmuş and his lovely family, we spent great time in Caretta Caretta. Breakfast and dinner there are delicious. We are family with 2 children and were surprised, that in pension is everything for their entertainment, even big playground, which is unique in Cirali. Hope to come back next year and we advise this place

For me Cirali is one of the best places for vacation. You will enjoy mediterranean nature, swim in the clearest sea, learn discover it's rich history.
When I searched a place for my vacations, I looked for a peaceful place without a rush.
I recommend you this pension. It is really great place for people, who try to find a lovely place for a rest, because pension is not in noisy centre of village, so you will join the nature.
In the pension are wooden and stone bungalows. They are clean and spacious. Outside, near bungalows are hammocks, where you can relax and read book.
In the garden are fruit trees: lemons, oranges, pomegranates, tangerines and grapes. Also you can use bicycles, it is free.
Owner of the pension Durmus - very hospitable and welcoming guest person. He will help to organize your vacations in Cirali. He was very kind to us.
The food there is really delicious, breakfast with fresh local vegetables and fruits, homemade marmalade and other.
If you will be there, I advise you to take dinners in the pension. Durmuş and his mother prepare food excellent.
We recommend this place everyone!)

My husband and I LOVE Caretta Caretta. We have now stayed there twice, the second time for a relaxing five days after walking part of the Lycian Way. It was also our honeymoon and Durmuş and his wonderful mum made us feel really welcome and special, more like distant relatives or old friends than guests. The huts are cosy and the showers are great (which is very important after a day at the beach). The gardens are beautiful, full of flowers and fruit trees and there are loads of chickens and cockerels around.

When you stay at Caretta Caretta make sure you have dinner there as well as breakfast. The restaurants in the village are distinctly average and Durmuş' mum is such a good cook. Trust me on this one ;) you won't be disappointed.

We were in Turkey for a total of three weeks and in that time we had tons of 'Turkish Breakfasts' but I can honestly say that the breakfast at Caretta Caretta pension was by far the best. The sigara böreği are amazing!

Yes, it's a little further from the beach than some of the other pensions but this makes it feel more private and low-key. There are bikes which you can borrow to go to the beach which is loads of fun and it only takes a few minutes, anyway.

We'll be back soon, Durmuş!

A friendly, relaxed family run pension with everything you need at hand. The softly spoken durmus will sort out anything you require without any fuss making food, transport, entertainment, no bother, even doing some baby sitting duties.The pension is Just the right size so as not to feel anonymous and in the evenings a great place to hang around and chat to others without the bongo players further up the beach,.
