“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2009

Stayed at the Efendi Hotel from 1 June 09 for 1 week. This is a lovely little hotel, room was spotlessly clean, beds and towels changed at least twice during the week. Great location as just off the beach. Didn't use the air con as left patio windows open at night, didn't seem to be any mossies around!

Found plenty of restaurants to try Turkish cuisine, couple of the nicest were Kemel (side of the canal) and Cafe Rose in the old village.

Wouldn't go back to Icemeler as got put off by the 4.5 hours it took to get to the hotel from landing due to huge queues for visas, passport control and still no bags on carrousel, then the awful stop for 1/2 hour on the way, coach then got pulled over by police and to top it all the coach then got a puncture and had to wait for replacement coach. Landed at 9.30 p.m. didn't make hotel until 2.00 a.m. took longer than the flight!! Transfer back not much better due to coach driver not speaking english and couldn't understand which hotels the rep was asking him to go.

Stayed June 2009, traveled as a couple

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2008

We have stayed at the Efendi four times now as it is such good value for the price. The rooms are fairly basic but spacious and are cleaned daily with fresh towels at least twice a week. It is well located a couple of minutes from the beach with shops,bars and restaurants all around.The pool is fine, maybe a little on the small side but has plenty of sunbeds, a bar which serves drinks,snacks and ice creams which are brought to your sunbed! Some of the ground floor rooms open directly onto the pool area which some people love. Personally I like to be a bit higher for the views.
Breakfast is the traditional Turkish style, eggs, cereal,cheese tomato and lovely crusty bread and jam or honey.You can buy the full english for a couple of pounds.
The Maestro restaurant is really good with lovely food and attentive service.The Heaven Bar is great as they always have sports on as well as music, dancing and karaoke. Staff there are brilliant.
What makes it for us is the friendliness of the staff who we keep in touch with throughout the year. People tend to return to the Efendi year after year.
If you are after a big complex with loads of activities then maybe this isn't for you as you make your own amusement here but for a good base to explore Icmeler you can't beat it.
See you next year!
