You get what you pay for! I didn't expect too much but I won't be returning to Icemeler. The Apts were very clean but very basic. Beds were very hard and not particularly comfy and air con kept leaking. Air con is additional money. The airport beds as we called them in the lounge are awful. Shower was rubbish which was disappointing. Pool area is nice and staff are very friendly. Found the resort of Icemeler to be very Brits abroad, not my cup of tea, its british this and british that, fry ups, roast dinners etc....not what I go away for personally! Hard pushed to find decent turkish restaurants although did find a few great places in the end.....Rose's house...she cooks from her own kitchen in her own house and its very authentic cuisine and a nice setting in her yard under the tress...lovely. Best one is Called Karem by the canal near the beach. Gorgeous food and really lovely older couple who own and work there, family business, very friendly and welcoming. Also enjoyed Charly's restaurant nearby to Karem. Busy busy resort and not the quaint village I expected. Also one thing to bear in mind is the noise level. Unbelievable noise......there are TANNOYS attached to the telegraph poles and they broadcast prayers to Allah every few hours starting at 5am!!!! Not good, esp when the tannoy is right outside your window!! You do get used to it as the week goes on but its all very noisy. Also one more thing, beware of excursions from the rep if you haven't got any english money because they price everything in GBP but as we only had Lira, they use an extortionate exchange rate and we ended up paying an extra £10 per person. RIP OFF!!! Take English pounds if you are doing excursions with the rep. Don't be fooled by the pre-book your seats line as they tell you that all the coaches turn up at the same time etc etc but there was no problem for us. Also, when you arrive in Turkey we had to wait in a queue to pay our £10 entry tax for 1.5 hours!!!! Nightmare!! Make sure you have GBP 10.00 to pay on arrival.
