“Stay home!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

Arrived in the middle of the night so really unable to make any first impression. Oh boy what a dissapointment after the first day in a very basic hotel and after experiencing all 3 dining options of breakfast, lunch and dinner I can honestly say we have never experienced such awful food. Hotel is in a good location but that is where it begins and ends. Can be said you only get what you pay for but this hotel is a no no.

Room Tip: Cannot recommend

The Vela Hotel is situated right in the center of Icmeler, just a short stroll from the beautiful beach. The hotel boasts a large pool & a seperate childrens splash pool. It also has a lovely garden area at the back of the pool,where you can relax under the palm trees. The Vela has recently undergone a makeover for Summer 2014, enhancing an already superb hotel. To book your holiday for 2014, just head to the Hotels4u website where you will find the hotel under it's post makeover name of Streamline Vela. The hotel is still managed by the same fantastic management team and staff, who consistently ensure that their guests have a pleasurable holiday, resulting in many guests returning year after year. With many enjoying several holidays to the hotel per year. Those of you who have visited the Vela previously, know how amazing it is! For those of you who have not... what are you waiting for? You will love it! See you there in July & October Happy holidays...

The hotel wasn't half bad just a shame about the staff that worked in it. Rude and arrogant and this includes the Jet2 Rep. You could wait 10 minutes or more for the bar staff to be behind the bar however most of the time you had to go looking for them. The food was cold and pretty much inedible. None of us are fussy eaters by any stretch but have left over cold spinach and carrots for breakfast from dinner the night before really isn't acceptable in an AI accommodation.

The upshot.... never ever again!!

It was my first visit to turkey and I enjoyed the flight in getting there first of all the hotel was lovely and clean daily and the cleaners could not do enough for u but the point am making is the same food all the time and flys flying around your food and also cats in the restaurant that s not healthy it ain't allowed in the uk but in the hotel they were and the other guests were feeding them too not good am afraid and also around the swimming pool it was not cleaned the staff are no good they chat to the guests instead of working I certainly won't b back and I don't recommend it either

Third time in a year at this hotel and it's gets better every time we go can't fault it ye the food is repetitive but for the price you pay you struggle to get a b+b for the same price would recommend to any one :)

Room Tip: Quiet room odd numbers little loud on the pool side which is the even numbers

my husband and I have just returned from a week AI at this hotel. there is only one good thing I can say about it and that is that it is kept very clean by the domestics, they and the girls on reception are the only staff that appeared pleasant and happy. choice of food was non-existant, the choice was between fish(same fish every day) or a stew(it may have been beef or lamb ) could not tell. they had rice some small pieces of chicken cooked on gill outside or donor kebab meat. not very appetising. tended to eat out most days. you can get a full English breakfast in resort for £1.99. this really pleased my husband as he loves his fry-up. there was only the pool bar where you could get drink as part of AI and that finished at 11pm, you had to pay for your drinks then. it was not pleasant to sit by the pool day or night, the staff behind the bar would play music that they enjoyed, not really in keeping with the age of the majority of the guests, and this was extremely loud. the hotel had a bar called café vela situated at the side of the hotel and you could sit there,it was much quieter but you had to pay for your drinks! but as we were AI we were given a 20% discount wow!! we could not get our drinks from the pool bar and bring them through, not allowed,all in all not a good place to stay, it is rumoured that Thomas cook are taking on this hotel next year and are already planning some changes, they have a lot of hard work on their hands and they must do some staff training as a priority.

Room Tip: odd number rooms face the square and are quieter. do not accept 5th floor rooms as small and dingy.
