Una struttura immersa nel verde e nel silenzio..con zona piscina super attrezzata. I bungalows sono comodissimi e arredati con gusto . Sui 4 disponibili noi ne avevamo 3 e quindi... read more eravamo praticamente soli ( l'altro bungalow era occupato da una coppia "fantasma" che non abbiamo mai incontrato nei nostri 5 gg..). Gaye e Erold, i proprietari, 2 persone assolutamente piacevolissime ( lei una cuoca sopraffina...) ci hanno viziato e coccolato tutto il tempo , dandoci consigli utilissimi per il nostro soggiorno. La famosa Olympos beach dista circa 1,5 Km dal posto , ma con le biciclette che sono in dotazione al Portalimo la si raggiunge facilmente in 10 mn . Sulla lunghissima spiaggia , ci sono tanti ristorantini molto sobri ma buonissimi.
In definitiva ..un paradiso immerso nel silenzio, coccolati e viziati da 2 persone meravigliose che ti fanno sentire a casa tua.
Per gli amanti della vita notturna e delle serate in discoteca o simili , Cirali non è il posto dove andare ...20 Km più in la' Kemer offre tutto quello. Più

Portalimo Lodge is peaceful and beautiful. Lodges are comfortable and spotlessly clean, the pretty gardens are peppered with places to relax, the pool is so scenically located it's hard... read more to tear yourself away and the views of the mountains are just incredible. Erol and Gaye are the most amazing hosts - such happy, friendly people, always on hand to help and offer advice on what to see and do. Cirali is our new favourite place in Turkey and we wouldn't stay anywhere else other than Portalimo. Thank you Erol and Gaye for a truly wonderful week.

Beautiful small hotel, just 4 cabins, quite area, surrounded by a stunning garden wonderful scenery of mountains on the background. The hosts are super duper friendly and kind. Delicious... read more breakfast.
After one week hiking in Cappadocia this was an excellent break. We recommend this lodge 100 %.

Portalimo and its owners Gaye & Erol creating the ambiance of being a personal guest in a private home, rather than just a hotel occupant. Lodge's interior designs are unique,... read more cozy. Also the pool and the garden has extraordinary charm, style and provide individuality. It is an adult only hotel and also location is a little bit far from the sea (10 - 15 minutes’ walk) so you are away from the crowds, well hidden from the main tourist throng. (we prefer silence so that is a huge plus for us). Travelers who are attracted to boutique hotels & lodges will enjoy creative, natural design, authentic character and good service & friendship. Like everything else their kitchen is locally-sourced, you can enjoy quality, authentic cuisine and comfortable garden- restaurant. Definitely will go back here and i can say that this place is highly recommended!

We have just returned from a week at the Portalimo Lodge and had a wonderful time.
Hosts Gaye and Erol couldn’t have been more kind, particularly when my partner... read more Julie hurt her back and they were on had to administer various creams and tablets which were immensely helpful.
The accommodation is discreetly located close to or adjacent to the pool, all with sufficient space and privacy so that you are not overlooked.
The breakfasts are incredible and far more than anyone could possibly manage with locally sourced produce and Gaye’s amazing home made marmalade and like many have said leaves little or no room for lunch.
The property is about one mile from the village and the beach but with the freely available bikes it took us five minutes to cycle down and only a couple more to cycle back.
Cirali really is a lovely place to stay. The village is quite small with just a few restaurants, bars and shops and the atmosphere is very ‘laid back’.
The ruined ancient village of Olympos is within walking distance and well worth a visit and the chimera (burning rocks) a 6km cycle through the village (and steep walk) but definitely not to be missed.
One of the reasons we came was because of the beach but we often found it hard to tear ourselves away from the pool side at Portalimo Lodge.
Everyone that we met in Cirali was kind and helpful.
This was our first visit to Turkey and made a lasting impression on us both. Gaye and Erol’s kindness and their beautiful property were a huge part of this really great holiday.

Wir haben ein Hideaway erwartet und es auch gefunden, was die großzügige Anlage, den Pool, die netten Eigentümer angeht. Letztlich ist es aber doch nicht so viel anders als die... read more anderen Blockhaus-Anlagen, dazu überdekoriert bis kitschig, dass es diesen hohen Preis rechtfertigen würde, zumal es an der Zufahrtstraße nach Cirali liegt.

Had a wonderful time at Portolimo with the lovely Erol and Gaye
The most amazing pool and gardens, comfortable lodges and great breakfasts
It’s a bit out of... read more town so we were glad of a car, but they have bikes you could borrow, just being here made us feel too relaxed for cycling

We were incredibly lucky to have discovered Portolimo Lodge through a friend. Gaye and Erol are the most kindest and hospitable hosts anyone could wish for. Our stay at the... read more beginning of our holiday was so enjoyable that we returned for another visit to relax, rejuvenate and recharge before departing to UK. There are only 4 lodges which are secluded amongst orange and lemon trees, so there is a great deal of privacy. The garden is planted with beautifully looked after citrus trees and fruit trees with roses and jasmine scenting the evening air. Gaye and Erol were ever so helpful and well informed, patiently answering all our queries. I think we found our sanctuary in Portolimo Lodge. Thank you ever so much Gaye & Erol for your wonderful breakfasts & generous hospitality. We will visit soon.

If you have managed to find Cirali in this most wonderful corner of Turkey then there is only 1 place to stay, Portalimo Lodge.
The grounds are like a... read more secret garden and the swimming pool is sheer perfection. The surrounding mountains provide a dramatic and stunning backdrop.
The wooden cabins are very well equipped and there are only 4 so you really have a private experience.
The owners Erol and Gaye are amazing hosts who really know how to look after their guests and can help you with any information that you may need.
The breakfast is very good and we also enjoyed some evening meals during our stay.
I would highly recommend staying here.

We had an excellent time in a paradise created by Gaye, Erol and Ozan and their dog Hira of course. We only stayed for 4 days but it wasn't enough... read more at all and we always think to come back. It has the most beautiful garden and the pool and watching stars at night was amazing! Çıralı is also very beautiful and peaceful with its blue sea and excellent nature.

Ich war mit einer Freundin in dieser wunderschoenen Unterkunft. Alles in dieser Oase der Ruhe ist dermassen liebevoll gestaltet, dass man sich einfach wohlfuehlen muss. Dazu kommen die unglaublich netten... read more Besitzer mit Anhang, die man sofort ins Herz schliesst. Man fuehlt sich sehr willkommen. Das Essen ist hervorragend und beim Fruehstueck fehlt es an nichts. Ich kann gar nicht beschreiben, wie schoen es dort war - der Abschied war entsprechend traurig. Ueberhaupt ist diese Ecke der Tuerkei einer der schoensten Flecken Erde, den man sich wuenschen kann - sehr urspruenglich und unverdorben. Ich kann nur jedem raten, zum Ausspannen dort hinzureisen. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!

We only stayed 1 night but would of loved to of stayed longer.
We arrived late and were greeted by Gaye & Erol.
They assisted us with our... read more luggage and showed us to our cabin.
There are 4 in total.
The area the lodge was in was amazing. Very well kept and looked after.
Chickens running around, fruit trees aplenty around the grounds.
Nice swimming pool that could be used 24/7.
This is a place were you could have a nice romantic getaway or a business meeting-holiday in such a nice area.
If you have a busy lifestyle and want a peaceful relaxing vacation then this place is for you.
Also this is a great place to take your Mum.
A place where if you need to recover from stress or the bustle of city life.
Car parking is provided.
Wifi is dinner area only which was accessible 24/7.
It occasionally worked in the cabin nearest to the dinner area.
No TV or phone in the cabins tho there is a main lounge where there is a TV.
But this place is a getaway place so really that should be avoided if you are on a chillax getaway holiday.
Very quiet so plenty of peace to think things thru if thats what you are here for.
Outside sleeping is possible whilst looking at the night sky in hammocks or those outside beds/ loungers.
We had dinner late the night we arrived and was such good value and quality.
The home cooking was really nice. Presentation and quality were high.
Breakfast is provided and wow what an amazing breakfast it was.
The home made marmalade was gorgeous and always had to have just a bit more.
We were well looked after me & my friend.
Nothing was too much trouble and we found the hosts easily sold there guest lodge by there warmth and nice homemade touches.
I would defo stay here again and would highly recommend this place.
Almost forgot to mention the poolside bar where there's a small range of nibbles and drinks to purchase.
Cirali is not a clubbers paradise but one for a getaway and this place Portalimo Lodge highly compliments the village.

After many visits to Turkey we wanted to stretch a littke further East and Portalimo Lodge ticked all the boxes on paper and in actuality. The owners Gaye and Erol... read more retired here with a vision and have created paradise. They couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Gaye's breakfasts make lunch an unnecessary luxury. Her dinners are creative and delicious. The 4 comfortable and spacious wooden guest bungalows, coupled with the lovely large pool and garden, mean there is plenty of room, although for 3 of the nights, we were their only guests. The 'lodge' is surrounded by stunning scenary.
It is a mile or so from the beach and restuarants. Gaye and Erol's, son Ozan kindly picked us up from the airport and to and from the beach whenever we wanted. Cycling there should be easy; back is reasonably gently uphill. A hire car (or scooter) would enable visitors to best explore the whole area.
The kindness of the owners is boundless. Ozan saved our holiday when our second hotel 'lost' our booking; (see; Unique Hotel, Fethiye). We cannot thank them all enough.
