These apartments are very basic and dated, the furniture and cooking equipment is very old. We had 1 cooker ring. The sofa's looked dirty and very old. Beds were really hard! The light fittings were hanging off. Definately NOT luxury. The pools are quite nice, 2 main pools ( one with slide) and a kiddies splash pool. lapWe found the manager to be really friendly and he gave us a room to shower and cahnge in on our last day - for free. Sorry we won't be going back .

Room Tip: Don't book the rooms on the top floor, they get very hot and the balconies are small

I went with my boyfriend for a relaxing holiday away and loved it! Amazing for the price we paid! The rooms were clean but perhaps need a tad updating but nothing substantial. Eddie and all the bar staff are an absolute dream always on hand for anything you need and the food is cheap but very good. There are three pools all immaculate and a slide that is on around 3 times a day. Very close to everything, supermarket round the corner, dolmas very close and the bars, restaurants and sea are 5 min walk away (if that). We thought it would be noisy at night not at all quiet after 12. The only downside we had was that it was supposed to be for couples and due to the holidays a lot of children came on the last 3 days and were a bit noisy not the hotels fault though they were very good at keeping them entertained. Overall we loved this holiday, Alvaro hotel was fantastic and we loved icemeler and the closeness to everything, we will most definitely be back!

Room Tip: We had a room on the top floor and basically had two balconies with sun all day and amazing views.

This was my first trip to Icmeler with 3 girl friends and we would definitely return with our families next time. The Apartments were all very clean and have good facilities inside. The Pool was immaculate. They have an undercover 'soft play' style area for children aged 10yrs and under which includes a little trampoline inside. They have a large pool, a medium pool where the water slide it plus a baby pool. All the children whilst there loved it and were completely occupied the entire time which made them and their parents happy! They did entertainment once during our one week visit - this was good fun. It ended in a midnight pool party! The food is lovely but the menu is not extensive as its not a busy restaurant. it was a very close walk to all the shops, bars and club but was quiet enough that you dont hear it when you are at home which is good. Staff are all friendly and have good knowledge of the local area and speak very good English. Overall we would recommend this place to ALL types of people. Older couples, families, younger couples and small groups.

Room Tip: Rooms on top level seemed more spacious although balconies are smaller. Rooms on level 3 were great...

We have just come back from a two week stay at the Alvaro Apartments I would highly recommend anyone to stay here. The grounds and rooms are kept spotless. There is three swimming pools and a slide which is turned on 3/4 times a day. Eddie the manager works very hard to make sure he does all be can for everybody starting when we arrived at 4am. If there is a Turkish night while you are there it is a must do brilliant entertainment and BBQ. Ending up in the pool about midnight. These apartments are in a brilliant location just minutes walk from the shops, bars, restaurants and beach. We did the lazy day boat trip and jeep safari which are both well worth doing. All in all a brilliant holiday

Stayed here for 2 weeks towards the end of season. Bit unsure as never been to Turkey before.

Honest opinion now ... Can't wait to go back and if I do I'll be back at alvaro.

Eddie who runs the apartments ... The best manager I have ever met. He knows every room and every person in those rooms. The first day he will no your name and then you will be known by name not room number! He has a daughter around the same age as my daughter and he is so good with kids. God knows how many lolly pops he gives away to kids :-)

Charlie and mesut who work there again brilliant people and make you feel at home. Always make a fuss of kids.

The hotel Yes it is basic but is clean and somewhere to sleep. The rest of days we would be out sight seeing our day at the bar.

The food is reasonable priced but good.
One night they had a special. "Leg of lamb" and it was my second favourite Meal in Turkey. Eddie cooked it himself and silver service at the table. Stunning!

Can't wait to return. WE WILL BE BACK!
