Our recent holiday was absolutely fantastic. The staff made our stay very special, they were all very kind and friendly and always willing to help. Especially Aston,Ali,lily,Askar and Mr. Aydin who recruited everybody for his Turkish baths up at the grand aquarium. The rooms were very clean and we had daily maid service which added to the cleanliness of the hotel. The location was perfect and cheap and easy to get a taxi to any location. We would certainly reccomend this hotel and we are planning to go back next year!

These apartments are well maintained with stunning views over the whole of Icmeler. The pool area is lovely the problem being the selfish people who cover beds for themselves and don't use them for most of the day.I don't understand why people do this or why they reserve beds for their children who never use them. This is no reflection on the hotel it's not their fault. We usually stay nearer town towards the beach so found these apartments set back a bit too much for us but they are so quiet this appeals to people. Sally was very quick to react to any problems anyone had. The rooms were kept very clean too small for myself,husband and two teenage children, with only one aircon unit being in the living area where the children slept, it was just too hot and uncomfortable in the bedroom to sleep. They food was excellent.

Recently returned from Turkey with my 2 young children and partner and am glad we had been before because based on this holiday alone we would never return again. The hotel is basic but adequate (not 4star as we were led to believe), its facilities and the people who operated them (eg the bar and entertainment staff, shop staff and maid) were very nice, hard working and accommodating - they do their best to welcome you. However, the reception staff need a course in hospitality. We were first met at 3am by the moodiest, grumpiest (and impossible to understand) reception staff I have ever had the misfortune to meet – leaving us wondering what kind of place we had come to. The pool area was great.
The accommodation is a good 10 minutes walk away from the resort centre - thankfully!
I say this because Icmeler is a loud, brash, neon-smothered resort. There is nothing charming about it. All of the restaurants turn into a club 18-30s style venues at 10pm, competing to see who could be the loudest. I have done this kind of holiday in the past but even then it is always nice to have somewhere where you can just escape from it to chill out, in this resort there was no escape from it - except the hotel itself.
We felt that many of the restaurant people wanted our money but then almost resented our being there - they were very grumpy - not at all like the sincerely, hospitable people we encountered in Dalyan some years before.
Its the first holiday i have actually looked forward to coming home from - purely because of the resort.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a good view but its tricky negotiating the narrow marble stairs with a little one...

This hotel is fantastic. The staff and the people were lovely and made our holiday very special. The rooms were nice and clean when we arrived and every day was nicely cleaned. The staff especially Aston,Ali,Lily and Askan made our holiday extremely special. An amazing hotel and i very much recommend it.

Room Tip: small hotel with only 36 rooms all facing the pool.

Just come home from 2 week stay at club Aqurium. myself , partner and my 8 year old daughter ..in short one of the best, most proffesional, personal , attention to detail holidays we have ever taken. The staff at the club - in particular Aston, Neilly ,Ali and Askar ..made our holiday nothing was ever to much trouble for them day or night , they gave equal time and attention to the adults and the kids and made sure that that the level of service we had was better than a five star resort ! So much to do in and around Icmeler with lots of fun and relaxing exersions ..also the entertainment at the hotel although usual bingo and quiz was made so much fun by the entertainment staff that we as a family made firm friends with other hotel guests and really enjoyed having a drink of an evening back at the hotel.
Yes the rooms are small and basic but it was a case of just sleeping in them and taking a shower - the food at the hotel was as good as any of the town's resturants we went to , and the maids came in every day with fresh bedding and towels for us. Reception staff and shop staff on hand day and night for money exchange , use of phone , taxi's ect .. local knowledge and there was even an option for us to visit the sister hotel the grand via a free shuttle bus.
We booked the holiday solely based on the reviews from trip advisor - so glad we did holiday really was everything we could have wished for and more , two week stay just flew past in a blink! Even the hotel owner and his manger came around to check that we were more than happy with our stay we met so many good/ nice familys with kids older and younger and although we all had our own things to do formed really firm friendships that we know will bring us back to Icmeler - my partner even had a tear in his eye on leaving - the service was outstanding , location stunning and the people who we met both staff and other families made this a holiday of a life time for us all - gave my daughter some of the most special precious memories that will alawys be thankful for !
Book sooner than later as this hotel / staff team are a real jewel in the crown of lovely Icmeler ....
Top marks for a top holiday !!!

Room Tip: All rooms basic - but could eat your dinner off the floor as they are so clean ! Air con a must if...

Stayed here for 2 weeks from the 3rd august, family with 2 children aged 11 and 13. nice appartments altho rather on the small size. Very limited storage space esp in the bathroom. Only one wardrobe for clothes and nothing else. Appts kept nice and clean by maid and new towels daily. Aircon in living area only which was a bit pricey at £30 per week. Also extra for safe £20. Pool area lovely and no need to reserve beds before 7.30!! altho some people still reserved beds and didnt sit on them all day!
Location of appts is a bit out of the way and a good 20-25 mins walk to the centre of Icmeler.
Cant fault the staff who work hard and are friendly. Food is good and the portions are generous.. Chips with everything!
Wifi good altho a bit complicated to sign in.
Overall a good holiday and would recommend to others.

Room Tip: rooms nearer the top have a better view

Just got back from Club Aquarium in Icmeler (4/8/12) really nice apartments, very clean, cant fault the miads alway fresh towels and bed linen changed daily. Myself and my 14 year old son stayed for 7 nights but wish we'd booked for 14, really enjoyed our stay there, the staff were really nice and very helpful and entertaining...big thank you to Aston, Ali and Ascar, and not forgeting Nilly who is so funny!! and also Ibo on reception. Food was really good and prices were cheap too as good as any bar or restaurant in Icmeler. Airconditioning cost £30 for the week and then you can leave it on all day and night if need be, and believe me when the temp in the shade is 36 you can garantee that in direct sunlight it will be in the high 40's the Aircon is a must. Would throughly recomend the Club Aquarium to couples or Families...the beach is only a 15 minute stroll down the road and within 10 minutes your in the thick of shops restaurants and bars and nightlife. In fact im seriously thinking about going back next year as I enjoyed our holiday there so much....... the only niggle I have about the place is that the top pool doesn't really have a shallow end at 1.60 metres, so anyone under 5'6" will have to hang onto the side or continually tread water and as far as I was aware that was the only down side for me........otherwise the Club Aquarium is a Brilliant stay!!!

Room Tip: The Hotel only has 3 floors, 36 apartments in total, choose the top floor for great veiws of Icmeler...
