“What an amazing holiday”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Just came back from 7 night stay at Julian Forest and can not stop talking about this amazing hotel.

we had a beautiful suite with 2 large rooms (one ensuite) and another large bathroom, balcony and lovely living area. The hotel was spotless and in absolutely beautiful surroundings.

The food was incredible, all cooked fresh with lots of choice and very tasty.

The entertainment team are brilliant, there is never a dull moment. Thanks to Oktay, crazy entertainer Riiiichy and Amy for making our holiday so much fun. Special mention to Sammi who genuinely goes out of his way to ensure everyone is having the best holiday possibe, he is an absolute legend!

If you are looking for a beautiful, clean and spacious hotel with great food and a bit of holiday fun around the pool definitely go to Julian Forest!

If you have any doubt about booking this hotel, do not doubt it, you must book it. My girlfriend and I just returned from one week here at Julian Forest. We wish we could have stayed forever. I've never been so devastated to come back from a holiday. This is a special hotel and I would tell anyone to go without doubt.

The rooms were cleaned and there was fresh towels and bedding every day by very friendly maids. The staff at the bar cannot do enough to help you and cater to your every need. The drinks are very good, no watered down beer or wine on tap. Premium tasting beer, bottled wine and great cocktails. The on site camera man is great and takes some fantastic pictures. The Turkish Bath is out of this world and you must go. 'Gary' the Turkish Bath man is great fun and will keep chatting to you all week long after you've been in the turkish bath showing how friendly and how much the people at this hotel care. Even the waiters are friendly people and your plate will not sit empty on your table for long. The best thing about this hotel is without a doubt the entertainment staff and in particular Sammy and Oktay. These guys really make your holiday that extra bit special. They will chat to absolutely everyone every day. There will be games to play, you'll have a fun time and if you have issues, feedback or need some advice on what to do they will help you. We had messed up our own air con by putting it on a timer and hairdryer in our room was a bit weak. Within a few hours these problems were sorted. These weren't even major problems.

The rooms are lovely with a separate lounge area, bedroom (with aircon), balcony and bathroom (with dressing gowns!). The receptionists were really helpful when we had a problem with some of our photos not arriving from a day trip. We arranged to go scuba diving and on a boat trip which were great fun. The quality of everything in this hotel is brilliant. The food is really good quality and there's so much choice. There really is so much to say about this great hotel. This is a hotel that genuinely cares about its guests and also its reputation. Some of the staff even showed me the trip advisor reviews and take real pride in seeing what people have to say about them and their hotel. How often would you see this? We will definitely return as soon as possible. The value for money at this place is ridiculous. We can't believe what we paid for the service we got. Even things like pancakes every day at 4.30 and as many ice creams as you like.

Don't worry at all about the location of this hotel. The bus is 10 minutes to the town centre and the hotel is so nice you don't even want to leave. You feel like you're in your own little paradise.

Love to Gary, Sammy and Oktay! Jacob and Francesca

The Julian forest is a great hotel with fab apartments, the apartments have a lounge with TV with kitchen which has all the mod cons and separate bedroom and bathroom, and free air con, and the apartments are cleaned and bedding and towels changed everyday, the food at the hotel is really nice and caters for everybody, the hotel has a main pool with plenty of sunbeds and a large children's pool which also has sunbeds also there is a pool with 2 slides, there is also a children's park, the hotel has a nice big bar and a cocktail bar both outside, the hotel is away from the Center of Icmeler but that's not a problem because there is always a dolmus (bus) waiting to take you to the Center also there are taxis waiting, this hotel is fab with great staff who are always smiling and will do anything for you, my partner and I have been to this hotel 4 times and are planning to go again, please give this hotel a go you won't be disappointed

Just returned from a two week stay at Julian Forest, we are a family of five ranging from 10yrs to 35 yrs we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was the most beautiful location some say to far out but id say just perfect as the buses ran continuously up until 1 am at night and was a ten minute journey into icmeler town. My husband and i really wanted a relaxing holiday which we got, my youngest daughter loved the entertainment which was throughout the day and evening the animation team, Richy, Sam, Amy and Oktay were fabulous, they even do evening nights out to bar street and the beach for a foam party which my eldest daughter and her boyfriend went and we felt at ease knowing they were with somebody they new in an unfamiliar place and they all went and returned together. It was a really friendly atmosphere the bar and waiting staff were very polite and helpful we had such fun with them, there is also a on site photographer Ali he was lovely he took pictures of us during our two week stay they were well worth purchasing!
We were lucky enough to have a ground floor room which was clean and spacious my Daughter was pleased that there was quite a few English t.v channels and also a movie channel.
We all enjoyed the meals there was plenty of choice soups, salads, breads hot dishes and even a Sunday lunch :0)
If you have never been to turkey before we must recommend the jeep safari trip prior we didn't really know what to expect but this was an experience not to missed. We loved our stay here at Julian Forest and will definitely return

Recently returned from a 10 night stay at Julian Forest Hotel, The hotel is beautiful well kept and clean and the food and drinks are very good. The entertainment staff at the hotel work very hard and do a great job however I do think the night time entertainment is poor and they would benefit from more proffessional acts on an evening during our stay we only saw 3 proffesional acts and one of them was the same one every Saturday the juggling barman! Well worth having a Turkish bath and massage while you are there it is very nice. Icmeler is a half hour walk or 10 mins on the bus or you can stay on the bus to go to Marmaris. Helpful tips: rooms have hairdryers,fridges and kettle, you are also supplied with beach towels which can be exchanged at reception. Enjoy your holiday!

Just returned from a lovely holiday at Julien Forest with family - 7 adults and 3 grandsons. What really makes this hotel so special are the staff – they are fantastic. The entertainment team Sam (“sexy Sammy” during Killer Pool!), Oktay, Richy and Amy are brilliant, the song and dance routines they have the children all joining in with are amazing and very infectious!

The food is really very good all freshly cooked and the chefs spotlessly clean. They have ice cream a couple of times a day (Carte D’or – all different flavours) and the children were in their element (and the adults!)!

Justin is a very efficient barman and so friendly with everyone – adults and children alike.

Belli (?spelling) in the dining room was excellent constantly cleaning tables etc.

The reception staff were all delightful and always extremely courteous and helpful.

The rooms are maintained well and kept very clean, with clean towels daily and huge fluffy white bath robes. I also love the fact they provide clean towels daily for use around the pool, which reduces the weight in your suitcase not having to carry your own.

The reception team are so nice and ever so helpful, nothing is too much trouble.

All in all this was a great family holiday with plenty of fun for both adults and children.

Harry, Jack & Paddy still singing the songs now they’re back home!

Thank you to all at Julien Forest for a wonderful time and you’re all a credit to the hotel – Deniz should be very proud! xxx
