“a bit dissapointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2008

stayed at the imba with partner and 2 children aged 7 and 5. the good bits first, very clean, fantastic veiws and just far enough from the nightlife so kids get good sleep! BUT kettle did'nt work told them a few times but nothing done. the drinks at the bar are;nt cold enough, and the soft drinks for kids are out of a big bottle so after many times beeing opened where'nt very fizzy. ther own shop just 15 steps down had freezing cold cans at half the price, but when i bought them ther and tried to drink them at the pool, i was told this was forbidden even when bought from there own shop! when i objected to this as we were self catering they didnt speak to me for the rest of the holiday.ther is no entertainment of any kind at night, but the local bars and restaurants are only about a 10 minute walk away. you have to pay about £30 pounds a week for air con, but be aware, although you get 2 bedrooms the air con is only in the main bedroom, so the kids stay hot and sticky all night. we enjoyed our time in bitez but were dissapointed in the imba appartments.many people were complaining but little was done to sort anything out. sorry imba but i will not be visiting you again.

we stayed at the imba apartments for two weeks from Aug 20th he apartments are basic but clean plenty of room we had sea views which were nice.. I would recomend them to anyone who wants to be just far engough away from the night life to walk to it one thing I will say you have to pay extra for ac around £100.00 for two weeks so rem this when booking as you may need it there is a bus that takes you to bodrum it runs every 15mins all you have to do is put your hand out its great they just stop which is nice ......... we met some lovely people at the imba I think kat was one of them if she had the 3 girls I have been in touch with another family the kids all got on great which is nice and everyone seemed to stay round the pool ps about 100 yrds there is a laundry but dont expect mircles except if you have whites s she ruined all my coloured things so be warned just send whites

  • Liked — it was just ok very basic for a cheaP holiday great but dont expect the ritz for old people no as there are alot of steps everything is on a steep hill so any one who has problems dont go turkey as very hilly
  • Disliked — nothing really as it is what I said cheap cheerfull

We stayed at the Imba apartments for a week from the 21st of August. It was absolutly fantastic, would recomend it to any one. Rooms are really spacious and they are cleaned every day by freindly staff.

Jack and Ozie who work behind the bar were exelent and would go out of their way to entertain the kids. We left then a beach towel behind the bar saying reserve on it so look out for that.

W e got home on the 28th and on the 29th I booked for 2 weeks next year. Loved it.

Hello, Just got back on Thursday after 2 brilliant weeks. If you have booked to go , you will have a brilliant time. Where to start....Here goes.

The apartments, I think, have a great location cos you are about 5 minutes away from all the biz, which is brilliant cos you get a great nights sleep. Head right when you go out of the apartments and you come to the beach road. In our 2 weeks, there was 2 English families and an Irish, and us the Scot's. I was wishing your family was there and then we'd have all the UK!!!

The rest of the guests were Danish or Dutch. They all speak excellent English and were very friendly, with all the kids playing together in the pool. Also there was some Turkish guests, which I took to be a good sign about the complex in general.

Mehmet and his wife, own the apartments and work the reception and the supermarket on site. You can hire the air con, and the safety boxes from reception. We hired the air con for 2 weeks but didn't use it much in the 2nd week. You can also change English notes, to Lira on site which saves any hassle finding banks, bueura de change etc. The rate there is the same as everywhere else, currently 2.50 lira= £1. All the cleaning is done by one family who come in everyday, Yes that's right everyday. They empty the bins and mop the floors. Lost count how many times beds and towels were changed, so no problems on that score. In fact, on one of the days they had shaped the towels into love hearts and scatted fresh flowers. It was a really lovely touch and a very pleasant surprise.

Then you have Jack & Ozzy who are in the bar. These guys became great friends and we are sending over a Scottish flag for the bar. You'll see what I mean, when you get there. They are brilliant with the kids and organised a Turkish Night which was very good and a late night pool party, which was good fun. Jack gets the kids up to dance after the belly dancers have gone. Great laugh.

The complex has nice food and the prices are cheaper than downtown. Never once had a problem getting a sunbed, even after 10am. Try the big cushions next to the bar in the shade with a cold beer. The bar is open from 10am (great morning coffee watching the views) till the last person leaves, which was usually the Brits, but we were never really later than 1am(ish).

Bitez is great and is for families. No big groups of single sex parties. They are all in Gumbet, over the hill, which is a bit like Blackpool on speed. All £1 a pint signs and watch Big Brother here. Great if that's what your looking for, but it's not for me. Bitez is a bit "posher" Best places to eat were Sultan ( Please say hi to Iden from us,) also we liked the New Season and Vona's. We also had a great chinese meal in the Pagodas, ( turn right at Vona's).

The kids did parasailing and jet ski-ing. We also went for a boat cruise at night which was amazing. Most of the older kids, hung about the Temple Bar at night. Lots of Irish there.

If you have never been to Turkey before, I would recommend the Village tour to find out about, how they live and there culture etc. A good tip is to go for a Turkish bath really early in your holiday. Jack will write you a note, as his friend runs the bath in the Ambrosia Hotel. It really sets your skin up to take a good tan.

As you can tell, I could go on and on. Safe to say, you will have an absolutely brilliant time. The complex is great and we had no problems from start to finish.

Please tell Jack & Ozzy, Carole Emma & Heather send them their love, and our parcel should be with them shortly. Anything else you can think of, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm very jealous. In fact the kids lost count the number of times I said out loud " I love it here" and I think you will too.

  • Liked — The most friendliest people
  • Disliked — Too many stairs in complex overall
