“Great Value for money”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

Can't fault these appartments, Eddie, the staff (Sonnet and Serkan) and Eddie's family were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. The appartments were clean and spacious and only about a 10 mins (easy) walk from the centre/beach. I would definately recommend these appartments and hope to return one day, thanks for a great time.

Had a wonderful week at Bal. Clean and welcoming. Eddie, the staff and Eddies family are great. You leave feeling like you have known them for years. Would recommend Bal apartments. Would return. Thanks for a great time. x

We've just come back froma week's holiday and had a great time. We booked into the Bal apartments after moving out of our original hotel which was grotty and dirty. The Bal is spotlessly clean and not too big so you get to know the guests. Met some great people there are we all had some fun nights out together. Staff at the Bal are great as well and always happy to help. Best restaurant we visited was The Love Boat - so went there twice - a liitle more expensive than the others but not much - try it! All in all - a great week of fun. Icmeler is very laid back and chilled but has the noisy bars as well if you want that. Also some fun shows - the Dream Boys and Deja Vu. Beach is nice also.

Just returned from a week spent at Bal Apartments with my wife and daughter.

This was our first holiday in Turkey - we went to celebrate my brother in law's 60th birthday - and chose Bal Apartments after reading other reviews.

All I can say is I can see why people return there year after year. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean and have everything you need. The bathroom has a proper shower cubicle, not just a plastic screen, and the water is always piping hot. The bed was comfortable and there are a pull out sofa and chair, so you can sleep 5 to an apartment if you have too.

Although there isn't a restaurant as such Eddie offers good breakfasts and the usual snacks throughout the day. This wasn't a problem as there are plenty of good restaurants within a couple of minutes walk where you can get a very good meal with drinks for less than £10 (try the Turkish casseroles at Sylvia's or Deja Vu). Do go to his barbeque night when his mum comes in and cooks - it's a great way of getting to know the other guests.

Eddie and his team are wonderful hosts and cannot do enough for you (he came in early on our last day with fresh bread to do some sandwiches for us to take with us), without ever being pushy and I can't recommend staying here enough - we will be going back next year.

Just got back from a fantastic week at the Bal Apartments. Booked at the very last minute so wasn't sure what to expect from 2*, but we weren't disappointed and had a great time in a nice family-run property.

Eddie, Mustafa or Soner are always on hand 24 hours a day and are helpful and friendly without being in your face (a good thing in my book!). Apartments have a spacious balcony and are sparsely but adequately furnished and spotlessly clean. Air con available in the bedrooms for £25 a week but I believe fans can also be hired for a lesser charge. Our rooms cleaned daily and towels were changed every other day. Since it's a small property, the pool area never seems to get packed so you'll always find sunbed space.

The location is quiet and away from the bars in the main town, but it can feel like a bit of a trek into town or to the beach when it's very hot. Best to take it slow and stop for a drink at Jimmy's Magic Garden on the way to break the journey back!

It was our first time in Icmeler and we'll definitely be back, and would certainly stay again at the Bal.
