Spent 10 days at the Hotel Vela in September and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough
Manager- Nihat- Fantastic guy who is more than happy to help with any problems you may have, mine was not with the hotel but using a courier to transport a parcel to a friend in Bursa. Nihat and Namik was extremely helpful in arranging this. Thankyou once again Nihat and Namik.
Restaurant Staff - Soner great guy who works very hard, but will always give you a smile, you are a little diamond. Thankyou for making my holiday a great stay.
Reception Namik - Very helpful and kind, will bring you some Jack Daniels chocolates when i return to Icmeler.
Night Reception - Umut lovely man who will do everything he can to help, he also loves English chocolate so please buy him a bar of choc or maltesars. Always greeted with a smile and chat at the start and the end of the evening.
Pool Guy - Metin He is a little diamond also, nothing is too much trouble for Metin and he will try and make sure you enjoy your holiday . He will make you laugh so much.
Bar Guy - Metin -Sadly he is the weakest link, sometimes smiley but most of the time scowling. Prefers to serve the Russians first because " you are a nice lady and you will not complain" yes i did complain, when 4 people entered the queue after me to be served and they was served before me!, suffers badly with mood swings!.
The room was bright and spacious, very clean , towels and linen changed daily. only met the maid on my departure and sadly i do not have her name to give her credit. The air conditioning was free , slightly noisy but it was an added bonus not having to pay for A/C.
The food was slighly repititious but this is to be expected with budget AI, i had budgeted to eat out most evenings as there is so many good restaurants in Icmeler. I am a very fussy eater but the standard of food for breakfast and lunch was very good and I always found something I liked.
There is no entertainment in the hotel but this is the norm in Turkey, I cannot comment about the evening meals or night time service in the bar as I never used it. Would i recommend this hotel , most definitely yes.
