“Loved it!!!!”
Reviewed 28 August 2009

Have seen the other reviews and don,t understand!! we stayed there for two weeks in July and loved it.... Found it friendly, pool was cleaned every night and all people had to be out by 7pm, for this purpose. Rooms were cleaned every day, gardens were kept clean and tidy, and staff and people there were realy nice!! there were a few apartments let out to Turkish familys but they also were very very friendly. We commented that their kids were so well behaved. A great place for a base and local bars were realy great, will be going back next year with family including the grand children as we thought it realy suitable. Found the pool area to be realy nice and quiet during the day and so stayed round it quite a few mornings.. The pool bar was shut though, but we found this to our advantage as they were more than happy for you to take your own drinks down (which saved a fortune not paying bar prices for them. As I say we Loved it!!

Esmerlda apartments should be avoided at all costs!! Bathroom was a disgrace and looked like the toilet hadn't been cleaned properly in years. Added to that was a broken toilet seat that slid off everytime you sat on it. Sink was filthy as were the taps. Wall sockets were lethal that buzzed when in use, and when using the electric 2 ring stove, small electrical charges came from it when stiring a pan on it.
These apartments are now residential and had we known that, we wouldn't have bothered booking this place. The people round the pool were turkish families with very unruly children who made it obvious we were not welcome! Late at night when the pool is supposed to be cleaned, these families are still swimming and larking about in it making as much noise as they please. Locals of the street it seemed used the pool at will which was very off putting indeed.
As for the bar....what BAR? Worse place we have ever stayed at and during the day we avoided it as best as we could because of the hostility from the locals living there.

Avoid these apartments at all costs!

We stayed at the esmerelda apts in July 2009. The first thing that greeted us was a dirty toilet. The main bedroom was likea prison,very small. It was also very dingy. Hardly any light came through the bathroom and bedroom. We were given the room right on the bottom floor, it was right near the gate. I asked if we could be moved,as people were coming in all of the time off the street. Anyway, we were turned down, toldno rooms were spare. It was more than ten minutes to the beach etc. I was very disappointed. Also bathroom curtains with black mould. There was meant to be snack bar but it had just been abandoned , when we arrived nobody spoke english. The bathroom was really small and there was no room. We paid for self catering and we had to pay 5 pounds a week for a toaster!

  • Liked — there was nothing to like it was all bad
  • Disliked — there was mould and human waste on the shower curtain and the toilet had also human waste everywhere

Arrived to severe disappointment,, had read only good review,,,,,
Not any more?????
This is now a residential block, used by students and low rent families,, mostly turkish or mixed groups.
The entrance,, pool area,,,, rooms,,,,,,,,,, everywhere is absolutly filthy!!!!
NO ENTERTAINMENT,,, FOOD,,, MUSIC,,,,SOCIALISATION OPPS...
I feel sure the pool is the local communal pool with ppl wondering in and out constantly for a shower or swim.
Thankfully we were moved after 4 days and so glad of that....
I'm sure the place was great in its time,, but thats long gone and so are the happy holiday makers.
Do urself a favour and don't go,,, i really mean this,,, u will regret it....

stayed in esmerelda apartments in sept 2007,weather was great red hot! Accomodation was clean at all times, staff really friendly and made you feel welcome went out of their way to talk to you made an effort with our little boy, pleased as it was his first holiday. Cant compain about anything only down side was that there wasnt any lifts and we were on top floor apart from that we all really enjoyed it it wasnt far from the main strip to walk and several restaurants on the way-found it to be really cheap to eat out and best places to go eat are on beach front. Didnt really stay round hotel in day went mainly to beach as there is so much to see!Welcome meeting was on a boat trip to icmeler that was good also you have to try turkish bath we all did it, even little one! 2nd time in turkey and would deffinately go back! Enjoy ur holiday!

  • Liked — It was in good location and near beach 5min walk, staff and cleanliness
  • Disliked — no lifts

Very basic accomadation that was broken into on day one before we had managed to rent a safety deposit box located in reception resulting in the loss of items that were not insured due to lack of deposit box (in small print). Weather was fantastic but the hassle from locals trying to sell you stufff made it impossible to relax even while paddling in the bloody sea. A warm welcome from Turkish people (supermarket staff not included ) was a grreat surprise as they would go out of thier way to help you. Would never , ever return to this resort despite the great food and friendly locals. Shopping in the Bazzar is like "Hell on Earth" due to the hassle from shopkeepers and stall holders. Miles of beaches but about one hundred yards not filled by bar, sunbed hire or boat trip hassle.Staff at apartments fantastic, funny and made the trip more enjoyable but never again.

Stayed September 2006
