“Peaceful.”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

Just returned from a lovely peaceful relaxing holiday. These apartments are situated close to the local market which takes place every wednesday. The apartments are basic but kept spotless and the staff can't do enough for you. The views of the mountains from each balcony show you how beautiful Icmeler is. Cherry, Frank, Peter ,Chico, and all the other staff work so hard to make your holiday there an enjoyable one and I for one appreciated everything they did whilst I was there. Your a good 10mins walk from the beach but I picked this place because It is in a lovely quiet location with lovely views but within easy walking distance of bars, restaurants and shops. You pay for what you get and I would definately stay at this friendly place again. Thankyou for a lovely time.

Room Tip: Anything above the ground floor gives you lovely views of the mountains.

Just returned from two weeks at these apartments. Had an absolutely fabulous time, the staff go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable and have everything you need. The staff work really hard to keep everything clean and tidy, the rooms are basic but what more do you want other than a clean bed, shower and fridge. Large apartments with lovely views over the mountains, lovely swimming pool and plenty of room to laze about on sunbeds. A bit of a way from the beach and main centre of activity but that provides you with peace and quiet which is second to none.

The staff are exceptional, Cherry, Frank and Peter who manage and run the apartments are so friendly and helpful and make you feel like one of the family. Chico, tigger and all the staff are happy helpful and great fun. At times I was laughing so much that my sides were hurting.

I had read some negative comments about these apartments including infestation of ants, lack of sun around the pool, Peter being difficult etc. Yes they have ants in Turkey and they are the similar to English ants who also enjoy food being left on the floor, if you are messy then what do you expect. The pool area was bathed in sun for majority of the day and thankfully some areas did get some shade to allow you to escape from the intense heat. Peter is an absolute gem, if you bother to actually communicate with him you will find out that he is hard working (well sometimes!) and he cares about his guests. Peter and my partner John had great banter which made everyone laugh. Chico and his brother will entertain you with their dancing and antics, but for me Tigger's gangman dance was outstanding......

All in all a really great holiday where we met lovely people, had great food, lots of sun and would most definitely go back. Thank you Cherry, Frank Peter and all for a great time.

Apartment
The apartments are large and spacious and have spacious bedroom and living areas and balconies, they are cleaned daily to an high standard, the kitchen as everything you require on a short break and there are plenty of pans and plates, and a reasonable sized fridge.

Location
The apartments are situated on the edge of town near the weekly market. Although on the edge of town you are only 200 meters from the shops which are open 24/7 and only a 10 minute stroll to the main shopping areas and the beach. You are a 10 minute walk from all the noise so this is idea from couples and young families whom want a quiet relaxing base.

The apartments restaurant serve up some good quality food, if there is something not on the menu ask and they will try to help we ate here on the majority of occasions due to there being no hassle unlike restaurants in the main town, and the price is good. We tried both the Turkish and English breakfast and most were good.

Cherry and Frank, Peter the mad Turk and Chico go out of their way to ensure your holiday is pleasant, Cherry and Frank can be seen each day with their paint brushes ensuring the apartments are upto standard.

We read some negative comments before we left and to be honest the people who wrote them were either stoned or drunk, ants in the dinning area, where?? don't we have ants in England. Peter rude... Peter is one of the most pleasant people you will meet and will engage all his guests. Peter has friendly banter with his guests and laughs and jokes.

Pressured to eat in the restaurant, at no point in our 18 day stay were we pressured to eat at the Ozlem 1, but when you eat the food you will come back.

This place is a true family set up, Cherry and Frank (English) and their Kurd son Chico and their brother Peter the Turk.

Chico is a natural entertainer, not like the false people in other hotels, Chico is great with the kids and adults alike.

These apartments market themselves as basic, this is far from the true, these are superior to most apartments in Icmeler.. Away from the hassle and noise of the centre yet within a short stroll.

Read the reviews of the people whom book year after year. We are going back to visit the sole ant and the rude Turk Peter and to be pressured to eat there.. Bull.. its great.

Thanks Chef(AJ), Cherry Frank, Peter and Chico and the great cleaner (can not spell her name sorry).

In summary we loved the place and all the staff and we will be back!

Room Tip: All rooms have good views of the pool/land
