“Comfort for the soul”
Reviewed 3 October 2007

We are a special type of traveler: we had 2 small sons with us (19 months and 7 months). We spent a month in Villa Monte, Cirali, Turkey. My spouse and I, we travel a lot (you can see http://www.flickr.com/photos/usovo/ ), have been to some quality resorts worldwide, and we agreed with each other, that out of many points on the Globe, this one might deserve a second visit!

First thing to know is that Cirali is a quiet and authentic small Turkish village - it defines the scale of the infrastructure in this area: no discotheques, but several nice open-air restaurants along the beach. However, there are several rent-a-cars, medical offices, small department shops (trading in almost anything you will need!). Plus, the village is astonishingly located inside the national park!

The hotel is small and very quiet, accommodating less than 20 people, which makes it easy to contact anybody, if you want, or to keep "family solitude" if you feel like doing so.
The owners/top-management of the facility are the family (Sinan and Esin), both Turk, both speaking good English.

Points of our total satisfaction:
- we were able to discuss the whole vacation by e-mail before coming and the owners fulfilled every given promise
- hospitality and general attitude was so positive from the hotel staff, that we felt like visiting relatives
- food was high quality, authentic to Mediterranean cuisine and absolutely "organic", served in cozy rustic style
- small hotel house stands inside the large lemon-tree garden and has it's own secluded yard, planted with flowers, citrus and banana-tree, which was safe and comfortable for the kids
- overall area - mountain-sea natural reserve (national park) with astonishing hiking facilities, turtle nests in the beach, ancient city of Olympos (one mile walk), eternal flames of the "fire mountain" (Chimera) - two miles or so
- neighborhood - peaceful village, with homes mostly converted into pensions
- beaches - sand and some stones, fine for kids (with attendance, of course!)
- people around were from Europe, US, Canada and Turkey (majority) targeted to tranquil rest with no extremes and NO crowds

Accommodation was OK, no luxury, but comfortable (AC, equipped bathrooms). Of course, this is not even a 3 star hotel, but overall impression of hospitality and personal care makes vacating in Villa Monte definitely and positively unique!

Hello travellers!

If you are looking for a beautiful place in Turkeye, far away from the countless 'all-inn' resorts at Antalya or Kemer, then Cirali is your destination. And once you are in ciralli you should stay at the Hotel Villa Monte! It's only three minutes away from the most beautiful bay of Turkeye.

It was the perfect hotel us... We booked a family room, with a seperate room for the children. It was very nice and clean. Breakfast and dinner were dilicious. The (small) size of the hotel (7 rooms) was perfect for us too. But most important: we felt at home... Esin and Sinan are great hosts! They really do everything to make your stay fantastic!

LOCATION: Perfect! It’s a 3 minute walk to the beach and town center. Off the street on a quiet road. Cirali is so much better than Olympos which is full of backpackers and lacking charm.

BED/SHEETS/PILLOW: Bed was harder than most in Turkey (Turkish beds are typically hard). Could feel bed springs. Sheets and pillow were ok.

LIGHTING: Great lighting in bedroom and bathroom.

SHOWER: Consistent water temperature.

CLEANLINESS: Room and common areas are spotless.

A/C: Works fairly well, won’t get the room really cold, but sufficient.


STYLE OF ROOM: Beautiful travertine stone floors, nice crown moldings. Very comfortable room.

FOOD: You must eat here for dinner. Even if you don’t stay here, you should ask if you could come for dinner. Food is fantastic and the table is covered with flowers. You must let them know earlier in the day for dinner. Breakfast is a very fresh traditional Turkish breakfast.

TV/INTERNET: No TV in room. Wireless was incredibly fast and worked in our room.

SERVICE: The main reason to stay here is the service. You will not find more nice hosts than the owners of this hotel. They are so pleasant you will want to stay longer.

COMMON AREA: Beautiful, especially at night. They will let you use beach lounge chairs in front of a friends beach restaurant at no cost.

TIPS: After walking/driving by most of the hotels in the area, I would strongly believe that this hotel is the best and most beautiful in Cirali (which has limited options). We did find the room hotter than we would like and the bed less comfortable than what we prefer, but the service and the style of the hotel would make me come back here again. I also stayed at the Aida hotel (next door) which is less luxurious, but has a more comfortable bed, better A/C, and a pool. If a pool is very important to you I would stay at Aida, if not, you will be very pleased with Villa Monte.
