Ercanhan Hotel
Ranked #31 of 77 Hotels in Icmeler
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 August 2010

I am just home from a one week stay in the Ercanhan Hotel, Icemeler and had an absolutely fabulous time. Here's a summary of what my fiancé and I (we are 24 and 23) thought of the place:
LOCATION:
Perfect. If you leave the hotel and turn right onto the little side street it is on you find yourself right on one of the main streets of Icmeler which contains, in our experience, 2 of it's best restaurants (The Chef and The Loveboat, right next door to each other). Crossing this street leads you to the pretty Canal which is lined with palm trees, restaurants, bars, market stalls and hotels and leads to the beach, all in all about a 5-6 min walk on a hot day.
ROOMS:
Very clean, not cramped but not large either, good air-con, neutrally decorated, modern furniture, all have balconies, admittedly basic, no-frills but comfortable.
POOL AREA:
The pool has plenty sunbeds to go round (we were often not up and about until mid-day and always managed to get one) and if on the odd occasion there aren't enough it also has loads of large comfortable pillows which can be used as beds and are very comfy! The pool itself isn't particularly big but big enough for a dip to cool off in especially considering the hotel itself is quite small.
HOTEL FOOD/ DRINKS:
The pool has its own bar which sells lunch and snacks. We particularly enjoyed their pizzas and burgers, their omelettes and steak baguettes also seemed really popular. We only ate in the restaurant once as we like eating out, the meal we had was nice and other people seemed to enjoy what they had. It's not the best meal you'll have in Icmeler but definitely tasty and good if you just want a lazy night. They have a lot of theme nights and entertainment which are worth doing. It is particularly nice at night as it has just been done up and is nicely lit with flat screen TVs and water features.
We only managed to be up in time for breakfast once (it finishes at 10am) it was nothing exciting just some bread, cheeses, olives, jams etc which I think is a typical Turkish breakfast.
STAFF:
Lovely and can't do enough for you. Due to the size of the hotel other than the cleaners and chefs there were only really 4 or 5 hotel staff, all young Turkish men. Their English is excellent and they made sure they learned every guest's name. They weren't obtrusive though and would let you do your own thing. Another thing we noticed was how good they were with the children in the hotel who seemed to really like them.
NEGATIVES:
If you're looking for luxury this hotel isn't for you, it's a good three star with all the essentials but definitely no extras hence the title of this review: Great for the price! Downsides for us were:
- The price of the air conditioning which worked out at about £40 for the week which is more expensive than we've ever paid before, we had to have it though as it was particuarly hot when we were there so just paid!
- For some reason there are no minibars in the rooms which means there are no fridges. We really missed that just for putting bottles of water and after sun in. It was something other guests mentioned too.
- There are a couple of areas other then the pool and the restaurant which are in need of an update in terms of decoration but nothing major.
- The hotel is three stories high but doesn't have a lift. I think they tend to put the younger people like ourselves on the top floor because we didn't find the stairs a problem so if you're older you'll probably get a room on the first or second but we couldn't help thinking they should have a lift.
Apart from that we couldn't really fault the place for the price.
CONCLUSION:
If you're looking for a good value get away to the sun to a resort with plenty of sun (there was never a cloud in the sky), good food, lovely people (I didn't experience the 'sleaziness' people have mentioned before although this may be because I was with my fiancé rather than a group of girls) then the Ercanhan is for you. The guests are mixed- there were a few couples in their early twenties like ourselves, some couples in their thirties, some families with children (but not too many!) and some older people too.

We stayed at the hotel for a week and as it was overall a great holiday the hotel was lacking in some areas. 1. the rooms which are shown on the website arent like the rooms you actually have, they look alot better than we got. 2. cleaniness was very standard as we had tissue and hair bands on the floor when we arrived to when we left. Also found a used razor blade in one of the beds which was very worrying. 3. and finally this might not bother some people but me personally i like to either drink orange juice or water with breakfast, the hotel did not supply them, just tea and coffee.
Do try and ignore the hassle from a certain member of staff in the hotel asking you why arent you eatting at the hotel , as he will ask everyday. There are lovely restaurants in icmeler to try so go out and explore. They also are great prices.

This hotel was immaculate due to the excellent housekeeping, good location,good food,
swimming pool was clean.
Although I did look at reviews before,and we went opened minded, hoping it was all hogwash.
Unfortunately lots of points that were highlighted by previous guests came to light.
1). constantly being asked by ozzie where are u going, what are you doing, where are you eating and why are you not eating in the hotel. This at times became intimidating and more then annoying.
2).water and all foods not allowed in room other then from hotel, of which the prices are three times dearer then local shop.SIGNS EVEN ON RECEPTION DESK WARNING HOTEL GUESTS.
3).Happy to receive guests and take bags to rooms, but if you hadnt spent a lot of time at hotel for dinner no one becomes interested when you leave.

THIS HOTEL WOULD BE BETTER SERVED AS FULL BOARD OR INCLUSIVE ONLY.

CERTAINLY WONT BE GOING BACK TO ERCANHAN IN FUTURE. (BUT WILL RETURN TO ICEMELER)

Hotel is very clean and comfortable. Staff are very friendly and obliging. Food is good. Ideally placed for the many shops and restaurants and the beach is only a 10 minute walk away. Will be going back in September with my family and we are all very much looking forward to our holiday.

I read through reviews about this hotel after i had booked my holiday last year, which made me really anxious to say the least....they were awful. Well what a load of rubbish they were too! We had a great holiday. The hotel is small and nicely presented, our room clean and neat with fresh towels provided daily. There is air conditioning available in the rooms for a small fee which was priceless as there was a heatwave during our stay. The staff were very friendly, helpful and fun to have around. They were in no way rude and were as friendly to holidaymakers who preferred to go out and about or stay around the hotel regardless of their age or gender. There was a wide variety of day time snacks and evening meals, which were lovely. The location was good, a short walk from a multitude of bars, restaurants and the local beach etc. Emma x
