A group of us stayed at this hotel for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and the location.
Well balanced as there was easy access to bars and restaurants. However, they were far enough away that they didn't interfere with te hotel.The rooms were quite noisy until after midnight when all music stopped.
Shopping opportunites were also not far away as a variety of shops and restaurants were by the picturesque canal which was only a couple of minutes walk along the promenade. The main town with more shops and restaurants was only a few minutes walk away.
We were told that the market at Icmeler was small but it is plenty big enough with a large amount of wares for sale. Contrary to past reviews the stall holders were mostly friendly and knowledgeable with very good english. They also leave you alone if that is what you want.
We stayed on the fifth floor which some people said was hot and oppressive but it was not. There was plenty of storage space and the room was also big enough to separate the twin beds with adequate space between them. the bathroom was spacious with a shower and bath
There was a good selction which included a choice of salads and freshly grilled food (fish, chicken and turkey) amongst other things. Some dishes also changed from day to day, such as the soups. The puddings were mostly sugary but this could be avoided as there was always fresh fruit available. The snack ber was open for three hours everyday. Chips and a variety of pizzas as well as pasta and salad. Very useful for fussy children!
There were self service drinks dispensers around the hotel for fruit drinks and tea and coffee (this was a welcome break from fizzy drinks). The alcoholic drinks at the bar were limited to local produce. However, imported drinks were available at a price. The barman were also skilled enough to make a variety of cocktails despite the lack of ingredients.
Pool and Beach
The grounds which surrounded the pool were well maintained and green with plenty of shade and no litter. Glasses were collected regularly so they did not become a hazard. The pool itself was quite deep which was a problem if you are not a strong swimmer. Therefore, it is worthwhile buying a bouyancy aid early in the holiday if you need it. The slides were small but fun, adequate t keep small children entertained.
The hotel has a private beach where the sunbeds are free, the sand is coarse and the sea is quite shallow.In addition, if you want a small group of sunbeds together by the pool or on the beach, if you ask the 'towel man' he will do his best to help you.
Daytime entertainment was mostly the same everyday but there were about six activities a day so you can pace yourself. The animation team were very friendly when they tried to get you to participate but were not too pressuring.
The evening entertainment was hit and miss. The animation team tried their best but some shows went on for too long but we didn't understand it anyway. However, the Mr and Mrs La Perla show was very entertaining.!
The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Reception were welcoming and solved our problems within a couple of days. Most staff had a good grasp of english and those who didn't had enough to get by and tried their best.
Book your trips independently, there are plenty of retailers so shop around. We booked a Jeep Safari (be prepared to get very wet) and Dalyan Caunos through 'Cheeky Bugger' and were very satisfied. I also recommend dining at 'The Majestic' by the canal. The food is good and reasonably priced. You have to stay for the entertainment after the meal, Kalinka is particularly good.
