“Best Holiday Ever”
Reviewed 2 September 2011

First time in Turkey. So glad we picked the Alvaro. Eddie, Ali, Deniz, Hussain, Mehmet all fantastic hosts. Eddie/Ali will sort anything out for you-nothing was too much trouble. Rooms are basic but comfortable and have all you need (apart from a toaster). Apparently top floor balconies are small. All rooms have a pool view. Beds a bit hard but great for my back. Very clean - towels changed daily, linen every other day I think ( hard to tell as all so clean and beds made every day). Rooms cleaned everyday. Pool and pool area cleaned everyday. Great location, about 5min from great beach, same for restaurants, supermarket, chemist, exchange, shops. We liked Majestics, Bamboo bar, Manderin. Our favourite was B&S restaurant on the beachfront-great food and service but no hassle. We didnt have a bad meal in 2weeks. 5mins from Icmeler market on Wednesdays. The only kids entertainment is a soft play area and water slide but there is so much messing around with Eddie/Ali that none of the kids seemed bored. Turkish night every other week was good(turns into a pool party). I travelled as a single parent with my 14 year old daughter and we made friends immediately. All the kids(from 4 - 20) just hung out together - no quarrels. Safe environment. Most people were booking to go back before they left.

Room Tip: No lift. No toaster. Apparently the top floor balconies are v.small but I didnt see them.

Just back from 2 week stay at the Alvaro it was great we were on top floor which only had a small balcony but that did not bother us.The apartments are basic, cleaned daily and fresh towels. The pool area has a great atmosphere kids loved it and made lots of friends. Eddie and Ali are really friendly and helpful.You do have to get your towel on sunbed by 8am as was very busy but it was peak season.They have a turkish night which was well worth it,all food we had at Alvaro was lovely and reasonable prices as were drinks which we paid for at the end of each day.Needed air con which was only in the bedroom but did spread through to lounge area £4 per day and safety deposit £1 per day well worth it.We ate at Lemon tree,Charlies,Haneden,Waterfall,Captain Bulls*** and had a few take away kebabs, never had a bad meal at any ,my favorite was The Waterfall.We did lazy days boat trip moonlight boat trip and jeep safari £60 for all 4 of us, all great trips.Icemeler is a lovely place with friendly people and the Alvaro is so central to everything I would definately go back.

Alvaro Icemeler what can i say fantastic, brilliant what a great gang Eddie, Ali,Deniz and Hussain so helpful and friendly. Rooms good, clean and tidy, linen and towels changed every day. Self catering facilities kettle, two cooker rings, utensils, pans and frying pans no toaster not a problem though as the alvaro serve great food and breakfast outside the apartments ranged from £1.20 - £2.00 cheap as chips.
We have booked for 2012 three families the kids loved it can't wait to go back home from home shops banks exchange and supermarkets all two minutes away, the beach five minutes away and you must visit icemeler market held every Wednesday. and Marmaris about seven minutes by dolmas bus, role on August 2012.

Room Tip: All rooms have great view of pool.

nice and clean just needs a bit of upgrading e,g. its classed as self catering but only has kettle and two cooking rings,no toaster or microwave? I know its not a hotel ,as reflects in the price,but thats the only thing thats letting these loverly apartments down, staff are lovely especially eddie, who seems to have a lovely rapport with the kids .

Rooms are clean but basic. Rooms cleaned and towels changed daily. Staff can't do enough for you. There are 2 pools and a baby pool. Alvaro has a great soft play area for the kids. Food is absolutely fantastic. They even cooked for me at 12.30 at night when Id had a few too many cocktails. Great location in the middle of everything. Staff are Eddie, Ali, Deniz, Mehmet and Chenell. All made us very welcome. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Got a great water slide too.

Room Tip: No lift so beware if you cannot climb stairs
