Both myself and my partner had a great time at the Hotel Navy and would recommend it to anyone. We went half board and got a good deal, as most people we spoke to did and thought we got excellent value for money.
ROOM-Firstly, having read other reviews, our bathroom appeared brand new, and we stayed in the main building on the first floor, so we had no problems there. The balcony was small and overlooked the bar, not all do, but we are reasonably young and did not find this a problem. We had a wardrobe, bedside table, dresser in our room and as we did not spend an awful lot of time there, found it to be clean and larger than expected. Again, we could not quibble with regards to the cost.
FACILITIES- I have mentioned the bar already, but a special mention goes to "Bar Boy!"
The bar is probably one of the nicest in Icmeler and is set back from the road (with the hotel itself.) You dont get harassed and is a nice starting point if heading out for the evening. The pool is a little small, however this did not seem to be a huge issue as most people seemed to head to the beach as there are alot of loungers there. You have to get up no later than 8:30 to reserve one as they are scarce around the pool!
FOOD- As mentioned we were half board, and the breakfast was great. Omlettes/ Pancakes/Fried or Scrambled Egg were the most popular, also the toaster needed some attention which was eventually fixed. This goes with the usual cheese/ fruit/ coffee/ juice you would expect. The evening meal was not always to our taste, but often ate out, but when we did try it, it was always of a good standard. The only thing that we would have perhaps changed was that their could have been a little more choice. Try the barbeque though, if not half board its worth the extra!
STAFF- The staff was the real clincher for both of us. They were absolutely amazing. There were 3 or 4 staff that wait on the whole hotel all day. No matter what time we got up or went to bed, they would be happy to get you a drink or bring your change over etc. They were really friendly and work extremely hard and if you are taking children I would recommend this hotel for this very reason. In addition to the bar/waiting/reception staff, the maids were also extremely helpful and did a great job, infact they even left our towels in folded in a heart shape every day!
Overall the hotel was excellent value for money, clean and the staff were great. Its in a great location as you are a minutes walk from the seafront. The bars/shops and restaurants are within a stones throw, meaning you dont get the noise, but are in easy walking distance. Also you have the option to go to livlier Marmaris, however despite our youth, much preferred the smaller and more family orientated Icmeler. Whether you are going for a beach holiday or for the nightlife or culture, the Hotel Navy makes a good, affordable base for an enjoyable holiday.
