“very helpful staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2011

Recently returned from a week at the Faber. Had read the reviews before and was a little worried, they sounded so negative. However we found very little to complain about! if you have to use the kitchen area as a bedroom then you will experience noise from the nightclub behind these apartments and the music around the pool is a little loud but a polite request to lower it was acted on immediately. The bar staff were great. They arranged a trip to Ephesus for us at a much cheaper rate than Cosmos with an extra meal included and other attractions. When my daughter was taken ill at 1.30am they called a doctor and translated for us and also gave us phone numbers to contact them if we had any dificulties at the medical centre. When we requested extra bedding it was provided with 15 mins. Rooms were cleaned every day. Couldn't really ask for more. We were very satisfied with the service.

We arrived around 3.30am at the advertised Faber apartments in icmeler where we shown to our room in almost darkness and was not given a welcome pack.
On awakening the following morning we found there was no hot water and we were informed by the family next door that if you complain at reception they would install an electric shower for us as the apartment manager was aware of a problem with the hot water.
This we did and they did indeed fit an electric shower for our family. the only problem was it was fixed to the shower door and the water supply was fed from the original shower then the shower head was fed back to the shower rail on the opposite wall which meant that when getting in the shower and shut the sliding shower door you were pushed up tight to the other shower door.
You could only shower if you left the shower door open and then spend fifteen minutes mopping up or be a contaushonist. As the management were trying to help, I tried to complain but they pretended not to understand.
Apart from the lack of lighting and the badly fitted shower the first week, we then discovered that there was not as advertised a toaster microwave or satellite t .v when I asked at the bar the waiter who spoke perfect English informed us that just before our arrival they were downgraded from a four star apartment to a three star apartment and as such the manager ordered the staff to remove all toasters and microwaves.
However the second week our pool area was turned into a building site they started to erect a new bar area with electric leads running from everywhere. We could not use the pool toilets as the floor area was covered with power tools and timber. Moreover, even when returning to our rooms the noise went on until seven or later power tools and hammering. Other guest complained at reception only to be given the I speak no English speech when I finally got someone from reception to listen they told me it would only be one more day.
The next day my grandson was playing around the children’s pool when he did the splits falling to the ground we later found a screw imbedded in his croc shoe. Moreover, we were afraid to use the pool area again as because of the new bar there was very little area for the children to play around the baby pool because they now squashed the sun beds into a double row leaving only a foot space around the pool.
In addition, the builders had now moved to the front of our apartments to erect another bar but as stated earlier our only source of lighting was the street lighting, which shone through the smoked glass windows so to find your apartment door you had to feel along the walls. As the builders had covered all the windows with Formica boards to hang, advertising boards etc.
Again, the days went by with the sound of hammering and power tools.
On returning home to the apartment one night because of the bad lighting I stopped at the door opened it with my electronic card key in trotted my 2 year old grandson only to find it was the wrong apartment my key had opened someone else’s door. The couple’s who’s apartment it was were quite taken back to find us standing in their kitchen. The next day when telling other people staying at our apartment what had happened we were told that all the card keys opened all the doors. And as such there is no security in these apartments.
Then after all this the day before we were due to return home I ordered room service for breakfast but when we went to eat it there was a horrible smell off the sausage and what I can only describe as rancid meat I took the food back but was still charged for it.

We have just returned from the Faber Appartments and I must admit that after reading the reviews we were a bit apprehensive. We had no need to worry! From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome. Not the most orthodox of places but we just loved how quirky it could be. "Buy 1 drink, get the second at the same price" was the sort of offer you could get. I've stayed at a hotel were the male receptionist sneaks up and tickles you as you are sunbathing, and I'm a 52 year old bloke!
Speedy and his staff in the bar were brilliant, and a mine of information. The rooms were comfortable though not luxorious, but what do you expect for the price? Talking to people around the pool, there were many who come back again and again, and I will be joining them.

Just got back from our 2nd visit to Faber and once again it was all that we wished for I do not understand some of the reveiws as we did not have any problems, The room was lovely, cleaned daily, the breakfast was excellent and nothing was too much trouble, the staff were all friendly and they were all working hard to make sure that people had what they needed. The bar snacks and evening meals were also excellent,
(shame that we can't say that about Speedy singing Ha Ha Ha.)
All the bar staff Speedy Koray and Mickey were good fun and ready for a laugh and a joke.
We arrived at 4 am after being delayed very tired and travel weary and the reception could not have been more helpful and took our bags up to our room 3101.
The manager was friendly even though she is a busy lady she still found time to talk to us.
Keep smiling Ozlem, we will see you next year Kate and John, Worcestershire x

Upon arriving to the faber after a very long journey we came across the same scenerio that many of the guests had received previously. we were told that there was no room for us until the following day and that only the attic room was available which was on the 4th floor. with no lifts in the place the luggage had to be carried up to this room. it was nothing like we had requested it was dark and pokey and had no view at all from the tiny little balcony which could only sit two chairs just about and that was at a push.
we stayed there for the night but made it clear that in the morning we would expect to be moved.
went down next day and was told that we could not be moved but it would only be available the 2nd day.

we were not very happy with this as 2 days of our hol was spent up in that attic. every time we went through reception we were constantly asked for money or payment of some kind for moving us. we were on holiday and not expecting to face being pestered for money every day.

when we were eventually moved the room was very nice pool view etc and this was what we had requested.Unfortunately the question of bribes and payment went on through out our 2 week holiday most days we were asked for money.
we mentioned this to other visitors only to find that they had had much of the same.
we were told that some one's camera had gone missing from their room only to find it remarkably re-appear when the police were mentioned, we were told that money had been taken and what was worse was that on one occassion a guest had said that their card for their door didnot work so they were given a master key for 2 days. lucky they were trustworthy then.

i can honestly say that all this was such a shame as the complex was lovely and the bar men very nice, we had no problem with pool and it was a very pretty spot with only a short walk to town.
