“Secluded and a great place to unwind.”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Cirali - a quick geography/nature lesson.
80 minutes south of Antalya, this secluded coastal village is nestled into a pretty half moon shaped bay down a steep winding road 10 klm’s off the main highway (only one road in, one road out). Very little development is built upon or near the beach as this is a primary nesting ground for the Mediterranean turtles. A 100 metre zone of trees, orange groves and other vegetation provides a buffer parallel between the beach and the hotels. This vegetation buffer shields the manmade light (hotels etc), and as the turtles hatch at night they are guided by the moonlight to the sea rather than be drawn inland to other light sources. So endith the lesson.

Spend a couple of minutes with Sinan (the owner) and you quickly realise why Hotel Villa Monte gets the great reviews that it has. An extremely friendly, genuine, helpful and hospitable gentleman that wants to ensure you get the most out of your stay in Cirali and at his comfortable B&B. Our room was spacious and clean with a modern bathroom and satisfied all our requirements. Breakfast in the gardens or outdoor room was fantastic with typical Turkish fare of fruits, tomatoes, egg plants, eggs or whatever your request.

With Sinans help we easily filled our 3 day stay with many walks, swimming in the crystal clear sea, boat trips, car hire and much more.
100 metre walk to the centre of the village for restaurants, shops and travel agents.
150 metre walk through orange groves to Cirali’s coarse sandy and pebbly beach (don't expect powder white sand).
500 metre to southern end of Cirali beach and Olympos ruins.
4 klm walk to the famous Chimaera eternal flames.
20 klm drive to amazing Phaselis ruins.
20 klm drive to stunning mountains.

Great location, great accommodation, great people, will recommend to our friends.

My husband and I wanted to spend our honeymoon in a quiet, rural village along the beach in Turkey and that is exactly what we got at Hotel Villa Monte. This bed and breakfast was incredibly clean and comfortable. The staff offered great hospitality and everything about the village and our stay was very romantic. I couldn’t have been happier with our choice! I highly recommend Hotel Villa Monte for any kind of vacation.

Logistically, the hotel is easily accessible from the Antalya airport (we booked a car to pick us up) and there are lots of fun places to explore on foot nearby. I highly recommend taking one of the daylong boat tours. We did rent a car for one day so that we could check out some of the neighboring villages. (Car rental tents are available in town.) All in all, Cirali was one of the most peaceful and relaxing beach vacations I have ever taken and Hotel Villa Monte made a lot of it possible.

We have just come back from a fantastic week in Cirali. We booked the holiday purely on the recommendation of this hotel on Trip Advisor. It is so rare to get so many good ratings, that we decided to give this place a try. We were not disappointed! From the minute we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by Sinan and his hard working staff, and made to feel welcome right from the start. Our room was lovely, clean, air con, balcony, lovely bathroom etc. Sinan told us that once we'd settled in, he would tell us of things to do, places to visit etc. He was so helpful, nothing was too much trouble for him. We learnt a lot! The food was spot on. Breakfasts were so filling, that we made do with a scrumped pomegranate and orange for lunch, until returning to the hotel in the evening, for a lovely meal. We mainly ate BBQ fish, salad, meze etc. All healthy stuff that suits our eating habits. Sinan's wife Esin was also lovely. She spent ages trying to contact our transfer company for the return pick up. Nothing was too much effort for any of the staff, and they always had a smile on their faces and made you feel like you were special guests. The highlight for us, was when Sinan and Esin's friends and family turned up for the Muslim holiday, and we were invited to join them at their table and share the evening with them.
The short walk to the beach through the lemon/orange groves was lovely. The sunloungers and shades were clean and free. We were never hassled when on the beach to buy anything, and we were left alone to enjoy our holiday.
All in all, the weather was great, food was great, location and hotel great, staff fantastic, plenty to do, and we would definitely recommend the place, and intend to return.

There are so many places to stay in Cirali but reasons for choosing Villa Monte include:
1: The location is perfect. It's 150 metres walk to the restaurant end of the beach where the sun loungers are for free and a cool beer is always to hand. And it's about the same distance to the centre of the village with a choice of good value eating places. Some of the other hotels/B&Bs are a fair way (and a hot walk) from the centre.
2: The breakfasts are 'to die for'. Great choice of fresh fruit, bread, jams, cheese and always a freshly cooked hot dish with great coffee to follow. They seemed to serve it all morning.
3: Last but not least: Esin, Sinan and their team of staff are fantastic hosts. They could not be more helpful, kind and keen to make sure you make the most of your stay in the area.
Not surprisingly, this place attracts a lot of repeat visitors. It would be easy to become a regular.

Room Tip: Room 8 is a family suite but has a lovely balcony overlooking the garden - and the extra space for s...

For the last 5 years, our family discussions over vacation programs have not been “where to go” but “when to go to Villa Monte”.
Room no.2 is our second best haven, for which we can even change our visiting dates. Feeling comfortable and safe, enjoying finer tastes, sharing warm atmospheres of friendly conversations are just a couple of routine higlights after each stay.
As we prefer a half board package, the lovely couple assistants, Seval and Ozen, always find a way to satisfy our taste every breakfast and dinner.
If you are looking for great hospitality, tranquility, and relaxation, you will be surprised to find something from each, if not all, in this cousy place.
Many thanks to owner-manager couple Esin and Sinan for their soft touch in every detail about Villa Monte.
We have traveled quite a lot, around Europe and US and have not witnessed many occasions where tables are joined by the end of the evening for a prolonged chat and laughter.
Thank you again for sharing your “home” with us. Müge-Oğuz-Derin ÖZTUNCER

We stayed in Cirali for a couple of days as part of a two week honeymoon in Turkey. We rented a car in Antalya and drove to Cirali where there was easy parking available in front of the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the accommodations for the price. Our room and bathroom were so clean and felt very new. The A/C was nice and cold when we needed it.

Highly recommend guests to eat dinner here. The chicken kebob was the best we had over our entire trip in Turkey! I still think about it to this day, and my husband and I have tried replicating the flavors on our grill.

Cirali is a very special place, but Sinan and his staff made it all the more delightful for us. There were a few families with children present during our stay and Sinan offered to set up dinner for us in a separate dining room so that we could have a little privacy. Sinan really went above and beyond to take care of us while we were there and made us feel valued as guests. Hotel Villa Monte is truly a gem in Cirali.

Tip: We did a whole load of laundry for an extremely reasonable price.
