We too are seasoned travellers and have stayed in many different types and standards of hotels but what you have to consider here is the price you pay. We stayed for one week from the 22 to the 29 October which is towards the end of the season so the hotel wasn't full but we found nearly everything to our satisfaction.
Our room: We upgraded to a mini suite with a sea view, the room was spacious and spotlessly clean, yes the balcony could be larger but who cares..!!! Towels were changed every day and toiletries topped up and the bed linen was changed twice during the week.
Restaurant: breakfast, lunch and dinner were all served buffet style but were plentiful, attractive and tasty, if I was to be really picky I would say the food could have been hotter on occasion but there was a good selection of English and European dishes at all times (no English breakfast, but eat continental on holiday for gods sake) the waiting staff were friendly and helpful and the tables were always set with glasses and cutlery every time we dined.
Bars: we were all inclusive so enjoyed local spirits and beer. The wine wasn't the best quality I have ever drunk but then Turkey has never been famous for its wine. Omar the bar man was efficient and served as quickly as he could and yes a small tip never hurts if you want To Insure Prompt Service (TIPS)
Entertainment: Joe, Vicky and Adrian kept us royally entertained throughout the week, throw in the Belly Dancer, the young Turkish dance troop, the Turkish singer and you could imagine you we're on holiday in Turkey..!!!
The spa: we enjoyed a range of treatments at excellent prices from two young Thai girls and Omar (I'm sure not everybody was called Omar) looked after us like VIP's
The hotel: beautifully clean and well maintained especially as you consider it was in the final week of the season and a great location.
Icmeler: a lovely resort we enjoyed a couple of walks along the promenade to Marmais and water taxi rides back. Lots of good quality authentic fake goods at excellent prices and the best Turkish shave and haircut I've ever had at a local barbers.
All in all a fantastic break for our first time in Turkey so if you're thinking of taking a holiday don't listen to the moaners and groaners who want full English and Fish and Chips go to the Munamar Beach Hotel with an open mind ready to enjoy a first class break at a good price. Enjoy.
