the attractive looking apartments are situated close to the pine foresest at the north end of the resort.arriving in the early hours,we were greeted by friendly staff and check-in was done quickly and efficiently.the room was clean and contained everything needed for self catering(cups a bit small).the pool area is clean and tidy and is next to a large restaurant area.flexi-dine is a must for value for money.only cloud is that every selection of meals comes with the same vegtables(still nice).all the restaurant and bar staff were efficient and friendly and special thanks to hakan demir and gizem ogog.hairdressing,beauty treatments and a shop all available.i will be booking for next year.

just got back from a 2 week stay at julian forest, it was fantastic, the staff were very friendly,they really go out there way to make sure you have a great holiday, everybody from maids to entertainment, management, it was brilliant, the place was spotless,food on the flexi dine was unbelievable, they feed you as if you are a yank, oversized portions and absoloutley delicious, the weather was brilliant, theseapartments have evrything you need on site (some things a little pricey ) the only downfall to this holiday was the wasps , and the location , just a little too far out the way, we enjoyed a couple of boat trips and long strolls down to the resort centre about 50 minutes by foot and about 10 minutes by dolmus, which run from7 in the morning right through til about 1 in the morning, if you are thinking of going , take a stroll down the back street and over to the old little village, the locals were lovely and very polite, if you are travelling with kids they have a great little kids club , and very safe also , we had a great time, well recommend this complex , thanx a million to all the guys who made this a memorable trip x x x x x

Where do i start?

Hotel- A very well maintained facility. Rooms are spotless and kept very tidy by a well driven team. Sheets and towels are changed daily. Pools are kept clean and are great fun.

Staff- A great team, who find it no problem to help you no matter what the problem. Very cheerful and friendly and find time to chat with you. A special mention to "HAKAN", who always has a smile on his face, (VAHIT,OZZY,SMILE,GIZEM) were great. Laura the hairdresser has a wonderful smile and is great at her job. Sinan (PHOTOGRAPHER)does a brilliant job and if you get the oppurtunity to have photo's done "GET THEM". The tattooist is also great.

Flexdine- This is a brilliant deal and you wont be disappointed with the food.

Entertainment Team- Shrek, Sevim, Beyza worked very hard and always try to get you involved.

Wasps- The wasps are the only thing that will annoy you but this is due to the time of year as they are dying off. Smoke pots are provided on request but dont really do anything.

All in all we had a great hoilday and met some fantastic people, who we hope to meet again next year we have already booked for next year.

We were recommended this hotel by a work colleague, it was our first ever time in Turkey and we were not disappointed at all.

My Initial worry was the location as it does sit almost alone at the very back of the Icmeler, this was not a problem in the slightest, we had the best of both worlds as we had the peace and quiet and the option to go into town, we never had to wait for a dolmus bus which stopped outside the hotel and at 1.50tl cost very little to go into town.

All the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make your time there was enjoyable. The rooms were spacious and cleaned daily, no complaints at all.

The restaurant had a great menu, with enough choice for both lunch and dinner. We decided after reading other reviews on Tripadvisor before we arrived, to go for the 'Flexi-dine' option which turned out (as advised) great value for money, please go and see 'Hakan' in the restaurant and he will sort all this out for you - you cant miss him, he has a constant smile on his face and always had time for a chat, even if he wasnt the waiter serving us! Gizem also really looked after us during our stay, she always made time to come and say hello and ask about our day/night.

We were very impressed with the entertainment team led by Cheif and Shrek who maintained their enthusiasm all day and night. They never stopped and we loved joining in the games - these games are only as good as the amount of people joining in, we made the effort they did to make our holiday fun - many didnt. On arrival we were slightly disappointed at not having a pool view but the entertainment team starts at 10am (with I have to say a great song) but as this is very loud we were glad we were side facing the hotel next door!

Make sure you have a turkish bath on arrival, ... this was so relaxing and gets your skin ready for the great tan we all got!

My 12yr old made loads of friends and i found the hotel very safe to let her have the freedom to roam around it, she loved the slides too.

There any many trips to go on, you will constantly get stopped in the town of Icmeler with people selling these, we did the boat trip during the day which was excellent stopping to jump off the boat, lunch and then we stopped in a small village called Turunc for a spot of window shopping and a beer.

We really did have the best time, and even after 2 long glorious weeks we didnt want to go home, but if I had to give negative feedback it has to be the usual ... reserving of sunbeds! If you didnt join in the early rise approx 7am you ran the chance of not getting a bed at all during our first week (arrived 27th Aug), or the beds with less sun the 2nd week. The hotel notices did claim towels would be removed but this never happened during our stay.

The wasps were a bit of pest and people got stung daily but I cant see how the hotel can be held responsible for the nature, and i cant say this spoilt our holiday just gave us all nervous twitch on anything that flies from now on!

We loved Julian Forest so much we are considering going back next year, we did hear a rumour the hotel may be half board next year - this would be the only reason to stop us going back.

stayed at the julian forest for 10 nights august 20th 2010,with friends and family children ages were 9,11,and two 15 yr olds the hotel is lovely and clean and food is good,hakan looked after us very well, we would recomend the flexi dine it is well worth the money.
There was all ways plenty to do around the pool if you wanted to join in. The entertainment was ok on a night time,but had great fun playing the pool games during the day.Went out for a few meals on a night time would recomend ,romanceand friends in icmeler,food great and so is entertainment.
Went to icmeler market which is on a wednesday and really good..
the only down side was the on site mini market should be called micro market didnt have a great deal of stock and what it had was a lot more expensive than those in icmeler also three of our party got ear infections from the pool ,my husband being the worst affected,having to spend four days in hospital.BUT I MUST SAY THIS HAS NOT PUT US OFF GOING BACK WE ARE ALREADY BOOKED FOR NEXT YEAR FOR TOW WEEKS TAKING A BIGGER PARTY AND LOTS OF EAR PLUGS .

This was our first time in Turkey and didn't know what to expect. Julian Forest is very good. It's clean and modern. The staff are friendly. Air conditioning was essential, however, if you leave it on overnight, it does get cold. The location was great - secluded, but not isolated. Set in a quiet area next to mountains. It will take quite a while to walk to Icemeler centre - but the relatively cheap Dolmus (small mini vans) run regularly from the hotel to Icemeler and beyond and take less than 10 mins. The staff are fine. Local people are friendly. If you can help it, don't buy from the shop in the hotel - it's about 4 times the prices you'd pay in the supermarkets - and there are plenty of them in Icemeler. The closest supermarket is a pleasant 15 mins walk. Slight negative comment would be that the cleaner doesn't always sweep the floor and there isn't a brush/broom to sweep yourself. The pool is large enough and the staff do their best to put on entertainment. The BBQ night was good. What I liked was that the entertainment finished at a decent hour (11 to 12) which meant you could get some sleep. It's definitley child frindly. My kids (10 and 12 years) loved it. We felt safe and looked after. The massage at the hotel is a great treat. Icemeler isn't for people with mobilty problems as it is a little hilly. Haveing seen other hotels in Icemeler, I'm definitley glad that I stayed at Julian Forest. So if you are wondering / undecided and you have a choice - Julian Forest won't disappoint you.
