Reviewed August 25, 2010

Arrived after 4 1/2 hour delay at Airport so very tired and found out the Roms we booked in Hotel was too small for us , only two plus teenager [16], however staff let us look at Apartments across the road without any fuss and we did get a very roomy corner apartment [although first 2 were a little small] at no charge.
Basic apartments and £28 per week for A/c , a must in the heat though.
Clean towels every day but cleaners forgot to clean rooms! , they could do with moving beds and hoovering up , this was the biggest let down in the rooms overall.
Hotel pool is OK but not much room for sunbathing, better option is go to beach only 10 min walk and get a free sunbed.
Waiters in hotel were good fun and made everyone welcome , definetely worth a visit for the laugh with them , prices in hotel weren't too bad either, only ate there on the barbecue evening , food ok but entertainment was a great laugh and varied, cos 20tl each , about £8.
Icmeler is a great resort as its not too big or noisy but plenty of good bars and restaurants, I would recommend the Three Bells Pub, Waterfall/Champagne and Cafe Anne for food all not too far away. Also for breakfast try the first bar/restauarant at end of road [turn left from hotel , end of road turn right and its first one on right , excellent .
Prices are about 4tl for beer 3-4 for soft drinks and good meal about £10 without drinks.
Also try and go to the harbour [right hand side of beach] just before it there is a fountain with fresh water from mountains, full of minerals and probably the most refreshing thing you could do.
Overall good basic hotel/appartments in great location with fantastic waiters in a great resort.
Enjoy!

Selen 2 is overall a good basic hotel. Most of the budget holiday hotels in Turkey are very basic, so this was of a similar standard. The hotel had a relaxed atmosphere and the children felt comfortable there. Our room was cleaned everyday.

The down side was so many children and adults got ear infections whilst we were there. Most requiring medical treatment or trips to the chemist (you can by uk prescription drugs over the counter there). I have stayed in many holiday hotels and have never seen so many people from the same hotel with ear infections. I see that previous reviews also comment on their family having ear infections. I felt sure there must be a bacteria in the pool like Pseudomonus, but when I reported this, I was just told it was common after people flying and I was not taken seriously. All our 3 children got ear infections, they felt unwell, were in pain and needed to see a Doctor. They had to be kept out of the water for a few days. Once allowed back in the water the Doctor advised that they were not allowed to swim underwater or get water in their ears, so the fun was taken out of swimming. Also they required a second trip to the Doctor to ensure they were well enough to fly. If you have already booked to go to Selen 2, I suggest you have medical insurance with the excess wavered and take ear plugs.

Also drinks around the pool are supplied in glasses and many got broken. There were several cut feet whilst we were there, so a first aid kit with cleaning solution and plasters would be another good thing to pack.

Breakfast was basic and food needed covering, but enough food was on offer, with tea and coffee on tap. The plates however were not washed properly and were often dirty.

The hotel staff were friendly, there was no pressure to stay in the hotel to eat as there is in some hotels in Turkey, so it felt very relaxed to try somewhere else to eat. Food prices were very reasonable at the hotel. There was good entertainment most evenings.

Apart from the ear infections, which needed to be taken more seriously by the hotel, we did have a good budget holiday at Selen 2.

This was our second stay at the Selen 2 and our last, massive staff changes for the worst, rooms were dirty, my daughter cut her foot on broken glass from a previous guest, the maid left our room door open unattented where we had our money/phones/passport etc. The managers attitute was fair but sometimes sorry is just not enough. The pool area you are forbidden to take your own food and drink, which is fair enough, but the drink prices are not fair. I will take my family to a different hotel next year, which is a shame because the first time round it was a great atmosphere but now its set up to extract every penny.

Just returned from 2 weeks at Selen 2 Hotel, rooms so small with 3 beds in no storage space. Patio door broke many times, door frame kept falling off. Everyone ill with ear infections,does this pool get cleaned? Breakfast just looking at what was displayed in front of us never went down again. The staff were very helpful and hotel is in good position however changes must be made for this hotel to be a 3 star.

just returned from selen 2 ,found this hotel very relaxed & laid back. Rooms clean but very small bathrooms in need of refurb.Very good location of nightlife & beach. Staff very friendly & helpful. Breakfast very basic & on occasions we saw flies on food - needs to be covered. We ate in the restaurant 3 times which was good value & nicely cooked & presented, but on each occasion had to query the bill as items had been added which we didnt have, same with bar bill . On the whole for how much we paid for the hotel we were satisfied & would certainly book again Agree with previous review about cleanliness of swimming pool,my grandson & neice both ended up with ear infections too.

I have been to Icmeler 3 times now and although we had a great holiday I won’t be staying at the Selen 2 Hotel again.


We booked the apartments but on arrival we were told the apartments were full and we would be staying in the hotel, the hotel rooms were tiny, loud and the sheets had a couple of rips in them and didn’t look very clean but the rest of the room seemed clean. The bathroom was tiny with slates for a ceiling meaning you could hear the people above and see the rubble between the floors, the shower was built for a small child and wasn’t very big at all.
The balcony was big enough for one person at time due to the air conditioning unit on the floor which blew out hot air. We paid for air con on arrival but found that the unit leaked and dripped on the bed to which we informed the reception who didn’t do anything about it as they said they would need to get an engineer in from the neighboring town so we had to put tissue under it to stop us getting wet! After finally being moved to the 'apartment' 2 days before we were due to check out we found that the room was bigger than the hotel room but nothing like the pictures in the advert. There was no separate living area to the bedroom. The self catering facilities were limited to a kettle and a portable electric ring which didn’t bother us as we were planning on eating out anyway but this wouldn’t be good for someone planning to cook in the room.

The bathroom was bigger than the hotel and so was the shower....however the shower curtains were covered in damp mould and so was the floor/ plug in the shower and the whole bathroom didn’t feel clean which meant we didn’t feel very clean after our shower!

On the plus side the balcony was bigger.

Some of the staff at the hotel were friendly others wouldn’t even acknowledge you when you were at reception. But we didn’t feel pressured to eat there unlike some hotels in the area and we ate out every night.

The pool area was full of kids which I guess is good for families, not so great for couples or single people and only half the sun beds would have any sun the rest would be in the shade but the ones in the sun would be snapped up very early by peoples towels, we stuck to the beach everyday!

We found that the bed linen was not changed during our 5 night stay in the hotel room nor where the towels (of which we only had one on arrival and had to request a 2nd one from reception) and as we were only in the apartments for 2 nights that wasn’t cleaned either.

After hearing some of the people around the pool say that they visit this hotel every year maybe we just had a bad experience this time however I don’t think I will be returning to see if things were any better!

The overall place its self was ok for a base for a week but I wouldn’t recommend it to friends or family, but if you are looking for a cheap 2-3*base then I’m sure most people would find the hotel ok.

One last thing the slide that is in the pictures advertised on the internet is no longer there, apparently due to the people living next door complaining about it.
