“Shocking!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We paid for all inclusvie for this hotel for 2 weeks what a rip off the food was shocking no entertainment there in the evenings so spent all our money eating out. Im not a fussy eater and tried to eat there but couldnt it was terrible and the staff was a misserable as sin!! the only good things I can say bout this hotel is its in a fantastic location had a nice pool which was in the sun all day and we had a lovely view from the beach from our room (which was very basic but clean)and thats it. I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THIS HOTEL EVEN IF YOU PAID ME!!!

Room Tip: Only ask for a sea view room thats the only good thing about the rooms.

well this was our fourth holiday to turkey and the last for a while.the staff in this hotel apart from the chef who was very polite and the maids who always had a smile and hello for u everyday were nothing short of pig ignorant.it amazes me that when walking out and about in this beautiful town everywaiter ,shopkeeper etc speak perfect english,but the minute you step into a hotel lobby they dont understand especially if you want to complain!!!.I have never complained before and my only gripe was this hotel has a section of beach for guests to use but when you go there ,there is a cocky git who demands money even when you show him your ALbands .I know on most sections of the beach there is a charge but not when your hotel has that section .we found out he has a scam going becuase no money went to the hotel.My only other gripe was a sign in the lobby saying after you check out only alcohol is payable,we were getting picked up at 4.20 and had to check out at 12 our flight wasnt until 10pm and we didnt get home untl 3am but we thought and i must say checked before hand with the rep that we could have lunch and coffee until we were picked up. NOT SO as soon as we handed over our room keys we were told that we would have to pay full price for everything i pointed to the sign and told the girl i wanted to see the manager, she went into a room and came out and suddenly couldnt speak english only to keep saying sorry the manager refused to come and see me and when i asked for her name to write a letter that was refused too .I had to get on my mobile and phone the rep who then phoned the hotel.this girl then came and told us we could have lunch and A soft drink but only from the restaurant not the pool bar.so we waited until 12.30 and couldnt eat out of pure anger of the pettiness but lined up 3 soft drinks and 3 coffees each and as soon as the restaurant closed the girl phoned the waiter and was told not to serve us to be fair many of the other geusts offerred to get drinks for us but we were all being watched.i started taking photos of signs in the hotel but as soon as i was seen the sign by reception was taken down.we met some fabulous people and made our own fun ,but the attitude of many staff was awful the girl in the pool bar would put the same three turkish songs on repeat at least 10 hours a day for 7 days and eggs for breakfast and chicken for lunch and dinner for 7 days [not nice]!!!think the owner has shares in the chicken factory.

We have stayed at the Blue Rainbow in Icmeler 3 times, It is a brilliant place to be, The hotel is very clean and tidy, The staff are very helpful and like a good laugh. The maids do a fantastic job with your rooms, cleaned everyday with a hello and a smile. Take some sweets they really love our english sweets. The pool is lovely but the shallow end is about 5ft 4in deep, and the deep end is way above your head, and their is no children's pool. The Chefs are really great and do a fantastic job on the money they have been given to feed you per day. It is mainly chicken, but i love chicken so that did not bother me. also for what you are paying for this AI hotel you can afford to eat out if needed. A english Breakfast will cost you around £1. The bar across the road called Home, do fantastic meals and they are make you feel very welcome, Say hello to Ali, he is sooooo funny.
You are right on the beach at this hotel and if you have a room at the back of the hotel you will be looking across the whole of Icmeler beach. Which the views are stunning.
All music in this resort turns off at 12 midnight, but nightlife goes on until the last person leave the bars, so it could be 5-6 in the morning, Icmeler never sleeps, but you can not here any noise.
We also go to Icmeler 2-3 times a year, and i promise you, you will not be disappointed. If you got some money spare buy some diamonds or gold, you will double or triple your money and it is a good investment for the future. I also use Bora. The owners name is Hasan and his helper is Jimmy, they will look after like a king or queen nothing is too much trouble for them, also they will tell you the truth. I have known Hasan for many many years and he has not let me down once.
If you want your hair cut then go to Nigel's salon, once again you will not be disappointed, brilliant cuts fantastic colours and at half the price of England.
People have moaned about the the manager, but if you make the effort to say hello to him, he will speak to you everyday.
Well i have been going on a bit, So all i can say is Enjoy yourself's and keep a open mind. You are not in England or Spain you are in turkey and it is completely differant to other countries food etc. So happy holidays.

Room Tip: We have alway stayed a the back of the hotel rooms on the 3rd floor are brilliant.
