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.
