Cirali and the Canada Hotel

We arrived at the Hotel Canada after a day of travelling from Cappadocia via Istanbul to Antayla. By van to Cirali, we marvelled at the landscape as we drove along the Mediterranean towards Cirali, reminding us of British Columbia. Only hotter! 36 degrees. The hotel is owned by Carrie and her her husband. Carrie is originally from Calgary, Alberta …

Day 6: Olympos Ruins & our first beach day

Wow, we are definitely in "phase 2" of this trip. This part of Turkey is way different than Cappadocia.

As mentioned previously, it's hot. Really really hot. Hotel said it was probably 38 today.

Now we experience the Mediterranean, with the gorgeous teals, blues and greens of the water. And we're getting into some more serious …

Ancient Lycia 101

A travel blog entry by brendakwilson

As promised, a 'little' history about the ancient Lycian history: This part of Anatolia was home to the Lycians, a civilization that dates back to at least the 12th century BCE. They first make their appearance in Homer's Iliad. By the 6th century BCE, the Lycians were defeated by the Persians (along with many other civilizations in Anatolia, such …

Off to the Turkish Mediterranean!

Today, we left Istanbul early in the morning for Antalya, a city on the Mediterranean Sea. This southern coastline of Turkey is called the Turquoise Coast, or the Turkish Riviera. We rented a car (which was sort of a crazy experience...our friend Aysen had arranged for us to meet her friend to help us get to our reservations office, but she barely …

Ancient myths, ancient ruins

Disembarking from our gulet in the port of Demre we were met by our transfer which was taking us the rest of the way to Olympos, an hour and a half further east. As we began to head along the coast it was quickly apparent why all the gulet cruises end in Demre, and don't continue onto Olympos itself. The beautiful rocky hillsides which shelter …

    Might be nicer to stay on the beach. Also, the wifi was terrible and there were quite a few "rules" that we weren't a fan of...specifically no outside food at the poolside.

    My boyfriend, mother, & I just returned from our 15-day vacation in Turkey. Nine of those days were spent traveling by car along the Lycian Way. Our first stop (2 nights) was in Cirali, where we stayed at Hotel Canada. Now looking back on all of our travels on the Lycian Way, I have to say that our best time was in Cirali - and part of that was because of our wonderful, unique experience with Hotel Canada. Carrie & her husband own and operate Hotel Canada and are so very kind and accommodating! I really enjoyed that Carrie made the rounds among the guests, speaking with each of us, making sure that we had all we needed. Also, the property is absolutely beautiful and provides a very secluded, serene environment! We stayed in one of the bungalows - very clean, very quaint, &d perfect for all we needed. The location is also great - it's proximity to the charming little village & the Olympus ruins is quite convenient. We had a car, so we were easily able to drive ourselves to the Chimera at night. (The hotel also offers to transport guests to the Chimera, too). And lastly, the food!!!! For only 10 Euros each, Hotel Canada serves a 5- course dinner each evening (bread, soup, salad, entree, dessert). We enjoyed some of the best food of our entire trip here at Hotel Canada. The only minor negative comment I have is that the wireless internet connection is very weak & it doesn't work at all if your bungalow is located further out from the central building like ours was. But actually, we had this problem at EVERY hotel that we stayed at during our trip (except while in Istanbul). If you are truly on vacation then one may argue that you don't need internet, but since my 13-yr-old daughter was back at home in Texas, the internet was our only means of communication. Also, I was writing an online travel blog, so an internet connection is necessary for that, too. But nonetheless, I would LOVE to return to Cirali some day and spend more time than just 2 nights. If/when we do, we'll certainly stay at Hotel Canada again! Thanks so much for making our stay in Cirali so memorable, Carrie!

    A wonderful stay!

    from

    The Canada hotel really exceeded all our expectations. The rooms were clean and had all the comforts we needed away from home. Saban and Carrie went out of their way to make us feel welcome. You'll definately not be disappointed! The beach is a short walk/bike ride away. Thank you Carrie, Saban and Mustafa! We look forward to our next visit to Cirali. It was a fantastically relaxing holiday!

    Good hotel in the best Turkish place

    from

    Excellent rooms and service

    TV in rooms, swim pool

    Peaceful location aside from other hotels

    Not the closest to the beach though

    Carrie is a gem!

    from

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Canada Hotel in Cirali. Carrie and Saban make a great team and really looked after us.

    the atmosphere was incredibly relaxing, friendly and provided a welcome oasis...gorgeous pool and tropical garden setting with hammocks made it all the more of a treasure for us. Would definitely stay there again...great for children. Carrie and Saban couldnt help us enough, they were a pleasure to meet.

    Loved it!!! Welcoming and friendly

    from

    We simply can't give the Canada Hotel and Carrie, the propietor, enough praise. We went to Turkey for two weeks at the end of August and from the first moment of arriving very late, well after the kitchens had closed, but still being served wonderful fresh food to leaving some days later with our route carefully planned out for us; we felt cared for and genuinely welcome.

    Perfect for us

    from

    We stayed at the Canada Hotel with two children (7 and 10) for 3 nights and had a great time. We shared a spacious family room, brand new, very clean, all the facilities needed and more (TV, Minibar, Air-con). The garden is absoluterly lovely (palm trees, banana trees, lemon and orange trees, Grenade apple trees, figue trees and plenty of flowers) - our children even had a nap in the hammocks after an exhausting day on the beach.... very peaceful.

    Fabulous people and a lovely home

    from

    Kathy and I have just got back from a 3 week ride on a motorbike around Turkey. We had booked the hotel with Carrie over the internet, and we were e-mailed excellent directions from where we would be staying the night before.

    Paradise in Cirali - The Canada Hotel

    from

    Coming off the night bus from istanbul to Antalya, minibus to Cirali and dolmus to the Hotel Canada I found that I had arrived in paradise, what a beautiful location, a moutain in the front yard, lovely garden, chickens, sensational pool and the warm greeting by owners Carrie and Saban. My somewhat travel worn spirits immediately revived. My second floor room with balcony was clean, neat with tv and shower. Arriving well after lunch I was served a delicious chicken stir fry while Carrie told me of all the things to do in around Cirali/Olympus. Spent a relaxing evening talking to other guests and finding that at the Hotel Canada you are more than a guest you're actually a member of the family. After a long lovely sleep, (they say you get more oxygen in the air down here), I awoke to a rooster crowing and having showered and dressed went down to a breakfast by poolside served by the wonderful Mustafa. Having stoked the inner LemonLady I set off on foot to the beach, a short walk away. Lovely, unspoiled, hatching ground for turtles (they proved to elusive that day), I walked over to Olympos, great beach, certainly not deserted with boats taking off for cruises of local waters. Walked on the beach to ruins in Olympos, climbed all about, smelled the scent of wind borne jasmine, I walked and climbed, photographed and talked to people. Stopped for a quick gozleme (Turkish crepes) and ice tea and walked over to see famous tree house hotel. Found lovely shops and friendly people. Walked back to the Hotel Canada where I went for a refreshing swim, talked more to Carrie about the day's adventures and enjoyed one of the best nights sleep I had in ages. The atmosphere at the Hotel Canada is conducive to rests, relaxation, and renewal. The service is personal and attentive. Next day, I took one of the bikes, free for the asking and set off for a turn around Cirali seeing the beautiful scenery, stopping for freshly squeezed orange juice. That night I went to climb up the mountain to see the Chimera lights, a natural phenomenon close to the Hotel. Dropped off by Saban's brother who said he would collect me in 2 hours I ascended at dusk which soon became dark (take a flashlight) and after some time, 700 meters straight up, saw the truly fascinating lights. Going up was one thing but coming down in the dark was only made possible by the kindness of 4 Czech students who literally carried me over the rough spots. Returning to the Hotel Canada with a real sense of accomplishment I really regretted having to leave it. I highly recommend the Hotel Canada for it's peace, quiet, welcoming, warm and friendly service, good amenities, good food, and reasonable prices, not to mention the extra shot oxygen in the air. If you can't relax at the Hotel Canada you're beyond help. Happy Travel, LemonLady

    A wonderful hotel in a lovely unspoilt part of Turkey

    from

    We began our Turkey holiday with 4 days at the Hotel Canada and it was very hard to leave. The kids spent hours in the lovely swimming pool surrounded by beautiful natural scenery. We lazed in the hammocks in the gardens, watching rabbits hopping around us. We enjoyed the delicious, great value meals. And above all, we appreciated the friendliness of Carrie, the lovely Canadian owner, her family and her staff. The atmosphere was so relaxed and happy.

    Charming hotel in an idyllic location

    from

    We spent two days here on our driving tour of the Turquoise Coast and loved it. Cirali is tucked into the mountains on the coast not far from Antalya--the nearby pebble beach is practically deserted, with some evocative Byzantine and Venetian ruins to explore to boot. The hotel's rooms are simply but comfortably furnished--ours had a little balcony overlooking the lovingly maintained garden. In the large common area there are tables for breakfast and dinner, a TV, and a pingpong table. There are also a bar and tables outside alongside one of the nicest pools we saw on our travels in Turkey. Saban, the proprietor, and his staff were friendly and helpful with good suggestions for local touring. The food is good home-style Turkish cooking. If you are looking for discos and nightlife, Cirali is probably not for you. But if you want a perfect base to explore the paradise of the coast and mountains outside Antalya, I highly recommend this hotel.
