Booking.com guest review guidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).

눇If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings in a small wonderfully appointed pansyon then look no further. The quality and variety of the food is an extra bonus. The staff are helpful, friendly and very gracious. An added plus, its all of 5 minutes from the beach which in itself is magnificent.

눉The hotel is 8-10 minutes away from the seashore, although the way to the beach is colorful and filled with nice small shops and cafés, and you're welcome to use another hotel's beach facilities free of charge.
눇This boutique hotel with a wonderful garden, grown by the owner with love, care and taste, is a real gem! Five bungalows only, located at the garden near the beautiful mountain, let you feel really special and unique. The owner is a really intelligent person who is wonderful to chat to during breakfast an dinners. The personnel treats you like a king and are ready to fulfill all your needs starting from airport transfer and up to providing you with a beach towel and preparing breakfast eggs according to your taste or getting a fresh mint for your tea. During the day the garden is filled with quiet wonderful music chosen by owner. You can choose between the different types of hammocks and treehouses (there are two!) to rest with a book at - and you just wouldn't want to leave the hotel for anything, even the sea, and wish to stay there forever.

눇From the moment we arrived we immediately loved it. We extended our stay as it ticked all the boxes. Great spot, shot stroll to the beach and very convenient for getting to Chimaera or Olympus. Lovely chilled out vibe and host with the most - amazing meals and extremely accommodating. Can't wait to go back!

눇I've never stayed anywhere so relaxing, so simple and natural and yet where everything I could want was at hand. Such sweet, genuinely caring service from Bulent and his staff. Fantastic food, wonderful music.

눇Because Kibala is so small (just six bungalows), it feels more like a homestay than a hotel. The owner, Bulent, is present on the premises and nothing is too much trouble for him. The location is perfect: Kibala is on the main road leading to the beach but a thick green wall shields the bungalows from noise and prying eyes. Bungalows are set far apart from one another for extra privacy. 10 min max to the beach. No cocks or hens around, no one crows at 4 am! The breakfast spread changes every day and includes fresh orange juice, eggs and Turkish coffee.

눇Cirali is a beautiful chilled destination and the Kibala Hotel is equally beautiful and chilled. The setting is beautiful with the 'rooms' situated in a beautiful orchard of citrus, pomegranate and apple trees. The breakfast is outstanding and kept us filled up until supper time. Supper at the hotel is wonderful, simple fresh Turkish cuisine. Loved everything about Cirali and the Kibala Hotel

눇We had a sensational stay at Kibala. We arrived late after a long delay at the airport, and were welcomed with a delicious fresh dinner, relaxing music, and the friendly comfort that is the way of Kibala. Over our stay, we continued to relax, and Bulent and his family gave us super suggestions for activities. The highlight was definitely the three dinners we ate there, such tasty Turkish cooking, a real treat!

눇We had a great time. The owner and staff are absolutely the best. So warm and welcoming the whole time with lovely smiles and very polite. Always asking us if everything was ok. The food is amazing. Breakfast was perfect. Everything fresh and such a great assortment of many homegrown and homemade items. They even made us a food pack as we departed really early in the morning. Dinner which you can order if you let them know you want to eat there in advance is a good idea. Really good food and a lot of it. The dining area for breakfast and dinner is lovely. The room was perfect for two people. Air conditioner was amazing to sleep with, as it was very hot. Shower & bathroom was great. Everything was clean & comfortable. We didn't use it, but the minibar was very well stocked. Hammocks outside were nice, and a washing line behind our cabin / bungalow was handy. The location off the main area was good, nice and quiet. An easy 10-15 minute walk to the sea. They provide bikes for free if you want to ride around instead. We would definitely recommend Kibala, especially for a couple or small group of friends who want to feel relaxed in a peaceful setting. Thanks.

눉Didn't feel the owner was very hospitable. Forgot to setup a cake in the room for my husbands birthday when I had requested it weeks in advance. Also when we advised we didn't want to have dinner there as we wanted to eat in town, we felt we were then treated differently. The grounds are clean and nice, but for the price you pay there are much nicer properties in the area and at cheaper rates. Beach is not near so unless you have a car, this location is further away.

눉We could find no fault with our stay.
눇Every morning we were utterly spoiled with a delicious breakfast of olives, bread, cheeses, chutney, and fresh fruits picked from Bulent's garden. The room was a gorgeous and secluded cabin set in a lush garden and the staff were always a delight.
