Our extended family of 8 people stayed at the Sun Blue Apartments in July/Aug and had a very enjoyable holiday.
The Sun Blue is right behind the Marti hotel - close to the beach, and just off the canal giving good access to Icmelers many restaurants and shops. This is the best area we've stayed at, in Icmeler, as everything is virtually on your doorstep. Unfortunately, due to this, the road (lane) our balcony looked out on was always very busy (day/night) with noisy traffic (bin vans, delivery vans, buses, coaches etc) so the balcony was rarely used. The bar and restaurant at the SunBlue are ran by Reg, Naz and Russel - all three always had time for a good chat, a laugh or a game of pool and really helped to make our holiday enjoyable.
The Sun Blue has 31 self catering rooms, a lovely pool area (quite small - 1.5m all over) a bar with TV and a pool table. A small mini market is attached to one of the apartment blocks (which was fairly cheap) along with the Sun Blue restaurant, which served fantastic food. Bar meals are served beside the pool throughout the day and at night the Sun Blue restaurant always had good 3 - 4 course meal deals on (steak 34lira / chicken 24lira). The food was always fantastic - never had a bad meal and the service was excellent too!
The apartment we had at the SunBlue had a separate bedroom, with double bed (chargeable A/C and safe) and a well laid out bathroom with a newish shower enclosure and fittings. The other room had 2 sofa beds, plus the kitchen with cooker plate, kettle, fridge etc along with a small balcony. For a family of 4 the apartment is fine but the kitchen wasn't workable at all - ours only had a single hotplate cooker and barely enough utensils to make/cook a basic snack. Saying that we ate out most of the time and had some very good meals at the SunBlue restaurant and other restaurants around Icmeler.
The beach (approx 3 minute walk) was lovely, we walked along to the Aqua hotel and used their beach (5lira per bed) which meant no hassle to buy food and drinks. We used Pier 15 for dinners when at the beach and the food again was good and pretty well priced.
We did the walk, one afternoon, along from Icmeler to marmaris - took a good few hours and we were all frazzled when we arrived. If doing this do it late in the day, as there is little shade. A nice walk, spotted the iceskating on the beach and the outdoor gym - lol.
All in all we had a very good holiday and would definitely go back to the SunBlue, but only if we could have a pool facing room.
