We have just got back from a two week stay at the Turgay Apartments and found it to be the best place we have stayed in Icmeler. It is situated just over the canal from the old village within easy walking distance to the village or the more lively seafront with plenty of supermarkets in the area. The rooms are kept very clean by the two maids, infact the whole place is kept to a high standard. The establishment is self catering but they have a restaurant which we ate in a couple of times and found the food to be very good. Josh and his family we found to be very warm and friendly. We had the feeling from them that it was our holiday and they were there to make it a most pleasant experience. There was also the barman - Duran - Duran was always polite, friendly and helpful - never at all pushy. This was our first stay at the Turgay . But I think the most outstanding thing about the Turgay was not reading past reviews, but the amount of guests who told us that it was there second, third, fourth stay at the apartments. I think this fact alone sums the place up - "Excellent" - so we are back again next year - Same time, Same place!!!

We came to the Turgay apartments for our honeymoon. We were really impressed with how clean everywhere is including bar, pool and our room. The cleaners were superb and would decorate the room which made us feel really special. As mentioned, factor in money for air con and safe. Rooms basic but ok and very clean. Not a great deal of cooking tools so if you plan on eating in your room maybe bring some bits! Location was great. You're in the old town and it's only a 10 - 15 minute walk to get in to the main town where all the bars and restaurants were. There were also some great restaurants not far - our personal favourites were The Love Star, Hanedan and Sidiks. We did have a great holiday and the people were nice, however there were some definite downsides. We got extremely hassled by Duran. I'm not sure if the people who didn't get hassled just ate there more often so there was less need but we got it everyday. We were told by Duran that people eating breakfast or lunch didn't bring enough money in for him and he thought it was rude that people would come to the hotel and eat out every night. We were actually told that our eating out was meaning that he would have no money come the winter!! It was really off putting and started to make us really uncomfortable especially as you have to hand him your key on the way out each evening. I also found Duran rather rude to several guests, which the Thomson rep also witnessed. It was noted that certain people were made to stick to the hotel rules a lot more than others, for example not jumping in the pool or having even plastic bottles of water by the pool for some whereas others were allowed to jump in screaming and shouting and have glasses by the pool. It didn't ruin our holiday by any stretch, but it did make it uncomfortable at times. It would be this type of thing that would make us not return again, which is a shame. The hotel is lovely in beautiful settings and really is good value for money but make sure you have thick skin or eat in the Turgay every night!!

Room Tip: All rooms are nice and face the pool. We were in room 305 which was nice as you didn't share a w...

Arrived home on 17th September after spending a week at the Turgay apartments, and believe me a week is not long enough!!! The apartments are very clean, spacious and well situated. Far enough from the town to enjoy a good nights sleep. Josh and the barman, Duran, were always polite and friendly and not at all pushy. We enjoyed a couple of meals, more than a few drinks, and the Turkish night was excellent value for money. This is only a small complex, but all the better for being that way. All the guests were friendly and many are repeat guests. We have stayed in many different apartments and hotels in Icmeler and this is our favourite. Just hope we can manage to get booked again for next year.

Many thanks for an excellent holiday.

This was our 4th time staying at Turgay and each time it just gets better. As soon as we land we feel we have come home. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly. The family room is spacious and always kept very clean by two wonderful cleaners who make your towels into peacocks and flower designs and on the last day decorated our room with real flowers. Josh has now become a friend and would do anything to make our stay as perfect as possible. It was the first time we met Duran but he was not pushy at all just helpful and friendly and I hope he will be there next year. The food prepared by Josh and his Mum & Dad is as always wonderful, especially the Turkish night. The apartments are in the old part of Icmeler which is lovely and quiet but easily within walking distance for all the nightlife you could want and shops and the beach. we first came to Turgay in 2007 where we met and made some fabulous lifelong friends and have been back with them each time we returned. Thanks Josh, Duran, Turan & Mr & Mrs Turgay for another wonderful and relaxing holiday. x

I have just returned from The Turgay Appartments after a 2 week stay with familt and friends and I have to admit it has the best holiday ever...!!!
Yes the appartments are basic, but they are spotlessly clean and are in a beautiful setting, I honestley dont know what some people expect for the price!!!
Me my husband and 4 year old daughter were given room 104 next to the bar and at NO time during our stay did this cause a problem with noise from the bar.
The Turgay family are very, very nice people and it has been an pleasure to meet them, As for the barman Duran, he was always polite and would take time out to have a chat with you, he was extreamley attentive and at NO point ever pushy about eating at The Turgay.
We ate breakfast at the appartments everyday and the food was good with plenty of choice, we also sampled the snacks and evening meals non of which were ever disapointing.
All in all we had a fantastic expierience and im certain we will be visiting again in 2013.
So may I take the oppertunity to thank The Turgay family and Duran for making us feel like part of there famies...x

I booked here with my husband and 11 yr old Grandson, on the whole I would say it was a good place to go but there are problems they need to sort out.
Positives first: nice clean basic rooms, cleaned well and regularly by one of the two ladies who work none stop all day.
Great location 10 mins walk into the busier part of Icmeler.
The staff all work hard at their jobs to make your experience the best it can be.
Pool and pool area is the cleanest i have ever come across and the water is tested regularly.
Lovely views from balcony and peaceful settings.
Minus points: There was permanent pressure to eat in the restaurant and stay in the complex of an evening. Even to the point of being told we were were responsible for the lack of money in staff pockets.
There was no WiFi.
No Toaster,
The dining/bar/reception area is dimly lit and and lacks character and any fans or rather there are some ceiling fans but they weren't turned on at all. Really need some AC in this area.
I reported to Josh three times that the door lock was broken but when I left it was still broken.
Petty things like people being told not to use P20 sunscreen because it marks the sheets (news to me), and moaning about drinking your own water around the pool, these are silly things they would be best to forget about.
Basically the management need to upgrade the bar area but because they always have good bookings the man in charge says "no", they will find themselves further down the list every year if they're not careful.

Room Tip: Remember the cost of 2 weeks A/C and 2 weeks safe hire was £80

We were in room 206 first floor. Around 8am each morning the bathroom filled with stale cigarette smoke even though neither of us are smokers. It was obviously filtering up from the lower floors! Besides this the apartment was adequate and cleaned well with a lovely balcony over looking the pool and views of the mountains. Pool was lovely except for the usual towels on loungers brigade, even though some of these people did not appear until after lunch.
Josh and his family seemed very genuine and the cleaners very polite. The thing that really spoilt the holiday for us was the attitude of the barman who was friendly the first few days until he realised that we were not going to spend most of our meal times at the restaurant or bar. From then on he gave us a very cold shoulder which really upset us. We felt very uncomfortable each time we had to walk pass the bar to hand in and collect our room key from the barman. He also asked us not to take our plastic water bottles to the pool area even though other people who spent money at the bar and restaurant seemed to be allowed to.
The whole idea to us of going self catering is to be able to choose where and when to eat. The meals we did have at the apartments were good and we would have most certainly eaten there more often if we had felt welcome.
We have had 13 years of self catering holidays and have never experienced this before. It came as a bit of a shock. So if you are someone who likes to try different restaurants then avoid the Turgay unless you have a thick skin so not to let it upset you.
