Julian Forest Suites
Ranked #7 of 77 Hotels in Icmeler
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Had a fantastic 2 weeks at the julian forest. I booked direct with Deniz the manager and got a much better deal than friends who booked with Thomas Cook. Free Wifi, safe & late check out from our room. The hotel was spotless, we were very happy with our family room, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a sofa bed in the living area. The staff were very pleasant and always willing to help. The entertainment team were top class kept most adults and children entertained through out the day. Food was amazing providing a broad choice and variations every day. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: Book direct with hotel.

Just came home from a lovely 2 week break at Julian Forest.The hotel is spotless { they love a jet wash!!) and the food was really nice with lots of variety.All staff were very pleasant especially the entertainment team who really were a great laugh!! we had a top holiday and cant wait to return next year. You cant really walk anywhere but the dolmus outside the hotel takes you straight into Icemeler for 60p.We never waited at the bar and they never ran out of anything, a really good value hotel that I can't recommend enough.

We booked directly with the hotel and everything went smoothly with transfers, free wifi etc

Hotel is quite a way from the centre but the buses run regularly and are really cheap as are the taxis

The kids entertainment was good the team are really enthusiastic however the evening entertainment needs some investment.

The food was great and there was lots of variety for everyone including fussy eaters!

One tip is to take English pounds as well as lira with you as the Turkish spa, trips and clothes shops all quote in it.

We arrived back in the uk in early hours of the morning and I had to make sure the first thing I did when I woke up was write a review while it was all fresh. The hotel is the best all round all inclusive I have ever been to the food was amazing with plenty to eat and we even got a Sunday roast which was amazing!! We have 2 children age 12 and 7 who fell in love with the place also and cried when they had to leave due to the brilliant entertainment team Oktay, Amy, Richie and especially Justin who made our holiday feel like we were all part of a big family and really made an impact on us and we were all sad to leave. The hotel is a 20 minute bus journey from the beach which you can catch outside the hotel which costs around 60p each and if you want to go to mar airs it's the same bus just 10p more we chose to go to icemeler and then get a taxi boat over to marmaris one evening that only cost £18 for 8 of us and made a nice change however going to marmaris made you realise how nice it was to be away from the hustle and bustle and the relaxing surroundings of our hotel, I did not have to que for a table at lunch or dinner once and the bar staff were very friendly too. After every food service the area was deep cleaned and although there were occasionally problem with wasps they try to control it as best they can and I have been places that are much worse with wasps. If you have older children the entertainment team take them to beach parties etc if they want to have a night out etc. Turkish bath was lovely and we did this on our 2nd day and have not peeled once and I always peel it only cost £70 for 2 adults and 2 children who chose foam but you can get them a chocolate massage. We will be rebooking for next year within the next few days because of our experience.

Room Tip: We had a junior suite which meant the children were put up in the living area however people we met...

Just come back from this hotel originally booked the julian club but I wasn't impressed so we got moved to the sister hotel julian forest it was such a big difference the room was nice just everything about it was so much better.The first person we met there was Gary what a nice person he couldn't do enough for us could job we had him as we never saw our rep we booked a Turkish bath with him it's was cheap really my daughter and I had one it was relaxing but we did find it funny.The entertainers were great Justin,Amy,Oktay,Richie they made sure you had a good time but if you didn't want to join in they didn't push you.The entertainment at night was very much the same mini disco bingo and then party games really some nights were fun but I think some shows would be nice.The maids came in everyday but I think they just made the beds and changed the towels the room didn't get cleaned as such.The wasps I hate them and some days were worse than others but they did there best to try and keep them away to be honest you just got used to them .The food was great there was plenty of choice at lunch and at dinner there was ice cream through out the day and pancakes around tea time the staff were really friendly from bar staff to waiters the manager of the food was really friendly and couldn't do enough to help you sorry I don't know his name,the drinks were ok they had a cocktail list for adults and children .we had a good holiday anybody going to this hotel you have nothing to worry about there are lots of people to help you Gary will help you in anyway and also Justin is there for you to we had a great holiday and we meet so many nice people .

Booked direct with Deniz the manager and got a better deal and much better service than I did last year with Thomas cook. We booked a family suite (two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living area and a poolside balcony) and Deniz also arranged our direct transfers. We were met at dalaman airport by our taxi driver who drove us straight to Julian Forest only stopping to get us some water, this was much quicker than transfer with tour operator and meant on our return we only left hotel 3hours and 45mins before take off.
Reception staff were always excellent and before checking us in they urged us to go for dinner and get some drinks before dinner service finished. Check in was efficient, we got everything we were promised, family suite, free Wi-Fi, safe and late check out. All four us were given our own Wi-Fi codes and they were all 100% reliable.
Room was everything we wanted and included tea and coffee, water in fridge, hair dryers in bathrooms and good quality hair and body wash in the showers.
Restaurant staff were better organised than last year and food quality and choice were also improved, there are still wasps but there is a new eating area that is enclosed and has air conditioning. If eating outside ask for the burning Turkish coffee which keeps the wasps away.
Bar service was also improved and the ready made cocktails at dinner was a great idea, we even observed people being allowed to sample many local spirits to find the Turkish baileys, jaigermeister or schnapps.
Pool area was where we spent most days, club dance at 10:15, killer darts at 10:30 with Justin, water gym at 11:00 with Octay, water polo at 11:30 ritchie and finally a pool game at 12:00. Afterwards the YOLO team would have a break before starting with club dance at 14:15, French boules at 15:00 and finally killer pool at 16:00 with Amy. Each of the entertainment staff were great in there own way but Justin was the most popular.
Evening entertainment was the only let down Kids disco at 20:30 to 21:00 was great for families with young kids but the hour before bingo at 22:00 seemed hard to fill even though the entertainment team tried really hard.
Overall this is a great hotel for what you pay and if the management continue to highlight the areas for improvement and take action, it won't be long before it will be the number one hotel in Icmeler.

Room Tip: Our room was 1103 and was a family suite on the ground floor with a pool view and a balcony, however...
