Me and my partner stayed here for 2 weeks from 31st Aug-14th Sep 2013 and we had a very enjoyable stay! The transfers took about 3 hours but it was worth it as Icmeler is a beautiful place!
Staff very friendly and they escort you and take your luggage to your room on arrival.
Rooms suited us to stay in, a lot of people complain that the walls are dirty and the carpets are not lined up perfectly etc but there was a clean comfy bed and a shower so that is the most important thing (Some people too fussy or purely just have a bad experience for whatever reason).
Sheets and towels changed everyday, only little annoying thing was the maids constantly knocked every 5 minutes in the morning to clean the rooms although we had the do not disturb sign on the door.
Swimming pools and slides are great, sometimes difficult to get sunbeds as people leave towels on there but seeing as the beach is a 2 minute walk we wasn't going to let that spoil the day!!
There is lots of shops, bars and restaurant's close by!
I would highly recommend The Mirage Bar that is located within the hotel where you need to pay for drinks but this is very cheap! Down the road is Wonder Bar which do brilliant cocktails and all types of music, new & old which is great!
The food in the hotel was enjoyable, there is always fresh salad out.. My partner is vegetarian and still managed to find a satisfying meal.. Alcoholic drinks, not much variety but beer is nice & refreshing. It was difficult to order drinks at first as they have no drinks menu so you have to ask.
Midnight soup is delicious!!
The night time entertainment about 9pm is for the children, after they do different nights eg Karaoke, bingo, belly dances, Turkish dance shows (if it doesn't suit you head to the bars outside).
If I was to recommend where to book excursions I would head out of the hotel to your left about 3 shops down ask for SILVA, he gives VERY GOOD deals for day trips, we got about 5 excursions for about £150 for 2 of us and they are all very honest (no rip offs).
Tattoo shop in the hotel I would recommend as me and my partner both had tattoos and they have healed fine, just make sure you have the design in mind as the
man that prepares your tattoo on the computer doesn't speak or understand very good English but the tattooist is brilliant and can understand your needs!
Overall I would definitely return to Icmeler, this hotel is having a refurbishment in 2014 so I would say it would be an almost perfect place to stay as there is very little to fault!
Turkish lira is great value for money!! Shops, beach, bars, restaurants, taxi, buses all close together within a minutes walk! Hassle to go in shops, bars and restaurants I think I think is normal in most foreign countries but you just have to politely say no thank you or HEFET LUTFEN in Turkish which means no thank you which they appreciate a lot more!
Hope this helps :)
