"To get to Simena Panysion, you will have yo be picked up from Ucagiz village by boat. It was a short ride but certainly a memorable start to a pleasant stay. The hotel staff were warm, friendly and welcoming, always ready to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Although not located by the water, there’s always a sun bed for you at Kale Panysion, same owners. I had my meals at Kale Panysion and it was lovely home cooked Turkish food. In the evenings, I could sit peacefully on my balcony with lovely views of the sea. I had a lovely stay."
"Very cozy and stylish family-run pension with the view over the haven. They also provide boat transfer to/from Ucagiz, have they beach facilities (together with Kale pension). I would imagine how let's say Orkhan Pamuk wrote his novels at such a place - very picturesque and tranquil."
"We took a boat trip from Ucagiz to Kekova two years ago and promised ourselves we would return and stay a couple of days. In the event we stayed for a week enjoying the most peaceful week ever. Yasin and Hatice were outstanding hosts and the accommodation was simple, comfortable and great value. We had read that the restaurants were a little expensive but they seemed to be very reasonable with good choices, tasty fresh food and very adequate wine. The views from Simena Pansion were lovely and the early morning canoe trips, walks around the castle and over the hill to Ucagiz all enjoyable. Recommended without hesitation! The transfers to and from Antalya were also efficient and comfortable. Just go there and try it, you'll love it."
"The place is absolutely amazing. The food, the view, the atmosphere. I have stayed in many hotels and this is by far one of the best. The water is like in Maldives and in Sardinia, you can see everything! Yasim and his family was so friendly and the best hosts that I could imagine! His daughters were so polite. The whole family made a great impression on our family by their hospitality, warmth and kindness. The people on the island are likewise. This is the perfect place if you just want to enjoy the nature, views and have an amazing vacation. We will definitely come back!"
