An overbooking in the resort by the tour company we used led to a booking with Oren Hill around 10 days pre travel as I was not happy with what the tour company wanted to give us, I read reviews on Oren Hill and we were not at all disappointed in fact we ended up being really pleased our oriignal accommodation was overbooked as on the coach around Icmeler picking up and dropping off there was nothing to match where we were staying.
This was a 3 week holiday so self catering along with eating out was important to us. The self catering faciliites were absolutely fine for us , it's amazing how creative you can be with 2 electric rings and pans, a normal size fridge and crockery for 4 ( there were just the 2 of us and I would have found more than 2 people in the apartment to be too crowded). It was single beds, but on holiday this was not an issue for us , in fact it probably allowed us to sleep better. There is air con in the bedroom at an extra cost of around £5 per day if you want which we paid for and it worked very well. You can also hire a safety deposit box for around £10 per week.
The swimming pool is excellent and was in no way crowded, likewise plenty of sun beds for the time of year we were there. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, rooms were cleaned daily and towels changed around every 3 days ( for those who complain about not having daily towels when self catering do you have daily towels at home?- I suspect not).
Ali who has worked for the family for years was an absolute star, a jack of all trades and always on hand to offer any help or advice, our cleaner Yadighar was also another star. The hotel is positioned at the back of Icmeler in the old town, we really enjoyed the walk to town, there is local transport that stops not far from the apartments for those who require it and taxis were fairly cheap. It was around 15 mins walk to town and 20 down to the beach. It was fabulous to look at the hills and lovely plants when swimming in Orens pool rather than looking at other buildings- I didn't see anywhere else that had this.
Icmeler is a lovley place to go, I would definately recommend a day at Turunc ( a boat trip there and back was lovely and around £6 per person). Marmaris old town was also another lovely stop especiallly watching the evening sun go down. Here are many restaurants we avoided the pie and chips, fish and chips and english breakfast ones as that is not our taste. There is a fab Italian called Le Grotte along the beach promenade and their cocktails are to die for esp the Mohitos. I would definately recommend Oren Hill and Icmeler to friends and family.
