2009 was our 7th trip to the Moonlight, year after year we see repeat visitors this proves the Moonlight has got something special.
The Moonlight can be found towards the old village, see the following link for a map, the green arrow shows the exact location.
It’s only a five minute walk to some good nearby restaurants or 10 minutes into the centre of Icmeler and 15 minutes to the beach, the beauty of its location though is the peace and quiet where you can hear the cockrel crow and the call to prayer at the mosque.
These apartments can be booked either with Thomas Cook or direct with the owners at http://www.apartmoonlight.com.
Although only classed as 2 star these apartments are spotlessly clean and the two maids work hard everyday to ensure it is kept that way.
There are 29 apartments in total sleeping 4/5 people in a one bedroom apartment or 6/8 people in a two bedroom apartment. 28 of the apartments can be found either on the ground or first floors in one of four blocks, the final apartment is a two bed apartment on the second floor in one of the blocks.
Each apartment has Air Conditioning units in the bedrooms, the lounge area with pull out sofa beds is also kept cool by the same unit by leaving the bedroom door open, at the Moonlight air conditioning is currently included in the price, at a lot of apartments in Turkey you would pay an extra £3-£4 per day direct to the hotel for this facility.
Safes are also available for rent and these are in the wardrobe in the room.
The grounds have beautiful manicured gardens and two swimming pools, the one at the rear of the hotel is smaller and goes into the shade mid afternoon which is great for the children, the larger pool at the front of the hotel has a water slide which is turned on at various times during the day for an hour at a time.
There are also Pool Tables, Table Tennis, and Bikes available (All with a small extra charge)
There are plenty of sunbeds available and we have never had a problem even when we have slept in. The management keep people informed that reserving sunbeds in the early hours of the morning is not permitted and towels left for a long period of time will be removed and can be collected from reception.
In the centre of the apartment complex you will find the bar, the guys are wonderful and really look after you during your holiday. The bar is also the area to hold great conversations with other holiday makers, being a small complex it is so easy to meet and get to know other people.
Drinks are of good value, and the food is extremely good to eat, most people walk into town at night for a meal and unlike some apartments there is no problem if you do this however I would recommend staying in for one of the Turkish nights.
We are looking forward to our 8th visit in 2010.
