“Hard to beat”
Reviewed July 23, 2011

A simple, clean, friendly and pretty hotel in a great location close to the beach. Friendly and helpful staff, though a bit of a question mark against the male receptionist whose smile muscles didn't work. He was polite and helpful though. Be aware location is a bit tricky for access late at night when bollards are down. Our transfer driver gave up the ghost but we knew where we were going, so walked all of the 50 remaining metres to the front door. We had two rooms. Corner room had a more spacious bathroom and was cooler. Other room had a bit more storage (useful tall cupboard with shelves). Plenty of coathangers. Air con much appreciated. Hairdrier in bathroom. Kept beautifully clean by charming staff. Loved how they turned the towels and sheets into boats and snakes. Rooms on the small side (but by no means cramped). Walls painted white with a tint of turquoise, drawers and wardrobes pale turquoise. Curtains a bit too floral for my taste, but it grew on me in a Mamma Mia kind of way. Small but useful balcony. Pool on the small side but a well-maintained sun trap. Never saw anyone go without a sunbed. Several overhead canopies you can pull out when the temperature soars. Occasional poolside service. Large bottle of water 4 lira. First week a bit too quiet and middle-aged, second week a bit more loud and lairy when a big family group arrived, but easy to wander to the beach or next door to the Prince (bigger pool - buy drinks or ice creams to be polite) if you fancy a change. Maestro restaurant food really good. Beautiful setting. Friendly and professional staff. 15 per cent discount for residents and the added bonus of a lovely, cooling, water misting system when it gets really hot. Would definitely go again to use as a base to explore. I thought the breakfast was ideal for the climate but not to everyone's taste. Choose from varied Greek (but with scrambled eggs and fried potatoes ) buffet and don't bother with the synthetic orange juice. Pay extra (7/8 lira I think) for extras like English breakfast. Pay extra for safe and fridge. We managed with a laree of water from one of the supermarket's on the opposite sid.e of the street. Really lovely hotel anv will definiitiley think about comin soon.

We have just returned from holiday at this hotel with some very good friends to celebrate a 50th Birthday. The hotel rooms were cleaned mostly everyday, friendly and very welcoming. All staff work to a very high standard. Location couldn't be better. We have been to Turkey but this was the first time for us to Icmeler and it was extra special as my partner and I got engaged. We stayed here for 1 week and will be visiting again sometime in the future. It is ideally situated for the beach, and plenty of shops/markets nearby. Beautiful safe areas for walking, cafes, bars, and restaurants supplying lots of varied menus with great Turkish entertainment every night. The bar staff in the Effendi's Heaven Bar and Ill Mastero Restaurant were brilliant.

Hotel clean, friendly and very welcoming. All staff work to a very high standard. Location couldn't be better. Private beach, free sun loungers with beach waiter service all day. Hotel entertainment every night. We have been to Turkey several times but this was the first time to Icmeler. We stayed here for 2 weeks and will be visiting the Efendi Hotel again this year and probably several more times in the future. It is value for money and is ideally situated for the beach, shopping at the market, numerous boat trips (all are worth every penny) and buses or boat taxis into Marmeris, Beautiful safe areas for walking, cafes, bars, and restaurants supplying very varied menus with great entertainment every night.

Have just returned from Efendi a few days ago.Basic hotel but you get what you pay for.
Hotel was clean and quiet.The pool is small but a great sun trap area.At the beach it was very windy and we had a couple of days rain ;0(
The area is very quiet so we traveled into Marmaris it costs 2 Lira on the bus up to 12 midnight.
A must is the Jeep safari highly recommend it was fantastic!!

I travelled with my 19 year old daughter August 2010 for 11 nights.We both enjoyed every minute,The location was excellent, rooms were basic but very clean, pool was lovely as well as clean with Hussein to bring you anything you needed. The restaurant was good, never had a bad meal and the staff were fantastic. We did eat there most of the time so i cant comment on others experiences. Special thanks to Mesut,Rezan,Zek,Uri ,Hussein and Hakan, you made our holiday an absolute pleasure. Hope ive got names right apologies if not! Cleaners were fab too,sorry didnt know your names!.
Entertainment in Heaven Bar was bit samey but tremendous fun due to the staff.
Was very concerned two females travelling alone and first time to Turkey,I shouldnt have bothered Turkey is Fantastic the people are brilliant and it certainly wont be our last visit and we had no hassle.WE LOVE ICEMELER!!!
