What can I say what hasn't already been said...

Very basic accommodation but very clean, The rooms are cleaned daily with fresh towels and sheets. there is a separate double bedroom and 2 sofa beds in the lounge, Adequate bathroom and kitchen equipment.

Small, friendly and intimate, just off the main drag so close to everything, Eddy & Erkaan work so hard to make the place fun and friendly personally I don't know how they work as many hours as they do, the atmosphere in the bar at night is excellent where everyone speaks to everyone else.

There are plenty of sun loungers and matress' for everyone around the pool area, the food is really good quality and plentiful

A totally relaxing holiday with no stresses about anything I am already planning on returning next September, I met some people that have stayed there twice a year for the past 20+ years ...

Been to Icmeler before at different hotel but the Alvaro much better. Staff very friendly and cant do enough for you. Daily cleaning and very good restaurant on site. Quiet in a side street but just a stroll from main thoroughfare. Already looking at booking for next year.

What can I say about the Alvaro . This is our 2nd stay here and it just keeps getting better . the staff Eddie, Erkan and all the over staff from bar to kitchen and cleaners are fantastic . The rooms are basic but are cleaned every day with fresh towels and bedding . The pools and water slide are great . And the Turkish night we had when we were there is a must and great value for money but be ready to end up in the pool at the end of the night . Erkan loves throwing the kids in the pool which they love trying to get him in . Eddie is the best everyone loves him and the kids think the world of him he always has time for everyone .

Great place enjoyed our holiday would love to go back next year. Very clean rooms beds changed everyday. Maid done a great job. Staff are ok. When we sat down for a meal we had to call the staff to get us a menu. Great for kids the slide was brill. Kids play area isn't the best very small and dirty. Only a small trampoline inside.

This was our 3rd year at the Alvaro. Arrived about 3 in the morning. Booked in and bags were taken up to an attic room !!!!! Didn't unpack just slept and was moved to the 1st floor the next day.
To be fair the attic rooms themselves are fine and the bathrooms lovely, I just don't like the small balcony and find the stairs a bit of a climb. 3 pools and pool area is kept nice and clean and this year there were new and extra sunbeds so didnt have to get up so early to reserve a bed. The fabulous Eddie, as usual, kept everything running like clockwork - the man is a legend.! Food is good and reasonably priced - try a mixed fruit juice. Rooms are basic but comfortable and clean. Funds permitting would definitely return next year.

Room Tip: No lift so ask for ground floor if stairs are a problem. Attic rooms are nice but have very small ba...

My first time staying in Turkey and reviews on here are why we chose the Alvaro.
The reviews are all pretty much spot on - basic rooms, dodgy water supply at times but these minor factors should not be considered when considering this place.
- The staff are fantastic (all of them) and really go out of their way to make your holiday good and they work especially hard to make sure all the kids have a good time. I went with a 12 and 16 year old and both loved it.
- The location couldn't be any better. In the very centre of town the hotel isn't more than a 10 minute walk from anything, shops, beach, restaurant or market.
- Swimming Pools, all three of them and a slide. The two main pools are warm and the slide into one of them provides hours and hours of fun (if that is your thing).

All this coupled with the Turkish night the hotel lay on and I really do not have a bad word to say about the hotel or iots people.

The town is a slightly different matter. It is totally focussed on the English tourist and a peaceful walk around the town is nigh on impossible. As long as you a firm and polite this isn't really a problem but it does tarnish what would otherwise be a fantstic beach town.

Would I go back - to the Alvaro yes, without hesitation. To Icmeler....I'm less keen.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the top floor rooms. These have very small balconys from which you can only have a vie...
