We've just arrived back after a week long holiday at the Efem Apartments and must say it's a fantastic place with amazing staff! I highly recommend it to anyone thinking of staying here.
We arrived at around 3am and were immediately shown to our room by two staff members who assisted us with our luggage. In the room they explained that there is food and drink available if we wanted it which was a lovely gesture and one you don't often get.
The room itself is basic but nice. It was spotlessly clean and was a great size - very spacious with two single beds, table and chairs, drawers, wardrobe and sofa. It also had a nice new a kitchen and bathroom. Balcony was also really good size. The kitchen was also well equipped with plenty of glasses, mugs, plates, various utensils, cutlery and came with a 2 stove plug in cooker and toaster. (Not that we used much of it because it's so cheap to eat out in Turkey).
The pool area is really lovely. It's kept very clean and tidy. There were always plenty of sunbeds available at all times of the day - perhaps because the apartments are small so it does not get overcrowded which is great. The sunbeds were good and had padded beds on the top for comfort. Also always plenty of umbrellas and tables available. The pool is a good size and has a slide into the main pool. There is also a baby pool next to it. The outside sitting areas and bar area is also nice, clean and tidy. The hotel also has a pool table which is free to use.
The bar/café area has plenty of options on the menu for all meals including; Full English breakfasts, Turkish breakfasts, Omelettes, Pancakes, Pizzas, Burgers, Chips, Chicken, Steak, Pastas, Fish options and more and kids meals. Also plenty of drinks options like; Soft drinks, Water, Cocktails, Beers, Wines, Fresh Orange juice ect ect. Great variety, lovely meals and great prices.
The apartments are in the quieter 'old town' part of Icmeler which is about a 10-15 min stroll into the main part of Icmeler. Whilst walking down to the main area you pass a number of shops, supermarkets and restaurants - which tend to be cheaper than the main area. There are a few restaurants and supermarkets around a 2 min walk away which is really handy. Also if you follow the main road down to the centre you pass a really nice trip company called 'Adam Travel' which is on the right hand side of the road - good trips and good prices and really nice and helpful service.
What absolutely makes the hotel are the staff. They are ALL fantastic - very friendly, helpful and hardworking! On our first day at the hotel my Mum ended up getting taken to hospital and staff at the apartments were great. When I ran downstairs to get one of them to ring an ambulance they did straight away and came upstairs almost immediately to help. On our return to the hotel they had cleaned the room as it resembled a chainsaw massacre. They were also very caring asking if we were okay and if there was anything they can do. Mehmet is a legend! Cheers for everything!
I would highly recommend the place and would return without a doubt. I know my Mum and Dad are now looking at going in September!
