Me and my boyfriend stayed at Munamar Beach Residence Hotel for 2 weeks 28Apr - 12May. Just returned from our holiday 3 days ago and I have to say, we really enjoyed it - will definitely recommend it! Munamar has 3 hotels - Munamar Resort, Munamar Residence and Munamar Hotel. The Residence building is really nice and newly refurbished. The Munamar Beach Hotel seems a lot bigger than a Residence, hence it is a lot quieter in the last one. You have a bar at the Residence but the rest of services such as main restaurant for b/fast, lunch and dinner, as well as the gym and hotel spa are located in the main building which is only 2 min away from the residence. Hotel has a private beach and a swimming pool at each of the properties. Staff is really nice and friendly, but unfortunately not everyone speaks English. The really nice touch is that this hotel is for adults only, they don't accept booking for children under 16yrs old which does make a huge difference to your holiday, not that I mind children though!!! There are lots of comments about rude Russians in this part of Turkey, but I have to say, being Russian myself and dating an English guy, neither of us got really annoyed by either of the nationalities. Although closer to the end of our holiday when more Russian people started to arrive in the hotel it became a bit crowded at the bar and the restaurant and I have experienced some rude behaviour from Russians (such as getting into the queues in front of everyone), I still have to say, they are the minority. Hotel and the Icmeler town is concentrated on British tourists mainly. There is not much entertainment in the hotel as you would find in most Turkish resorts, but that is because it is a "Spa Hotel". It meant to be a quiet and a relaxing place. But you still have English speaking reps entertaining you during the day and some bands in the evening (so I don't really understand why Russians are still coming to this place :)). Not crazy, but just enough if you came for a relaxing time. The food was absolutely fantastic, lots of meat, unfortunately no seafood at all, but meat was really good. They also have 2 a'la carte restaurants (Italian&Turkish), the food is not much different from the main buffet restaurant but it is still a nice experience. Alcoholic drinks are of the lowest quality as everywhere on the all inclusive board in Turkey, but everyone still keeps drinking it. In overall, it was a very nice holiday, really enjoyed it! Several advises - ask for an upgrade of your room with a sea view; spa services are a "rip off", so go in town for the Turkish bath and a massage, there is a Spa place just behind the Residence and with a bit of negotiation you can get yourself a super deal. Way cheaper than at Munamar hotel. But then you can still use Sauna and Turkish bath at the hotel free of charge if you don't use their massage services. So despite the rude Russians and the fact that Housekeeping sometimes forgets to hoover or to leave towels/soap bars in your room (but that can be easily solved by asking it at the Reception); everything else was superb!!!
