Reviewed 27 July 2014

My daughter and I stayed at the Sea Star for nine nights in July and had a wonderful holiday. Everything is immaculate and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We had room 504, a side sea view room, but the view was still amazing from our balcony.
The food was good, and we enjoyed the wonderful salads, although it was sometimes a challenge to decide what everything was! The hot food is labelled but the cold food is not. Together with some other guests we felt a barbecue once a week would be a good idea for the management to consider. We met some lovely people and our evenings were spent chatting and laughing on sofas overlooking the sea, drinking our all inclusive cocktails, bliss!
My daughter had a Turkish massage and said it was the best and most professional she had ever had. There was never a problem getting a sun lounger on either the beach or around the pool and we were often the only people in the pool. All in all we felt completely pampered, it was so relaxing and we will hopefully visit again soon. Thank you to all the staff (and fellow guests) for making this the perfect holiday.

Booked the Sea Star hotel last minute and could not have made a better choice. We booked and emailed Melis to ask for a room with full sea view and wanted one of the big balconies on the corner. When we arrived was greeted with a warm welcome and Melis advised us that we had been given a lovely room on the third floor with the big corner balcony as requested, which we were delighted with. The hotel only opened in May so everything is new and of a very high standard. The Rooms were lovely with big bed, TV, fridge with drinks topped up daily. Coffee making facilities and safe. The bathroom had lovely big walk in shower with normal and waterfall shower head which was so relaxing. Toiletries and slippers provided and again topped up daily. Maid service was excellent and everything was spotlessly clean and again daily service. The all inclusive did include everything including the in room safe. The private beach and pool area were lovely with very comfortable rattan sunbeds and cushion pads and there were plenty to go round. The towels provided are good quality and you can change daily. We enjoyed the food as there was a good selection with lots of salad, fresh fruit and a good array of hot dishes, and the deserts were great. The staff were wonderful and would like to say thank you to you all. Too many to name all, but special thanks to Mehmet who worked tirelessly as our beach attendant and was so lovely we enjoyed our chats. In the restaurant and bar Aykut, Ferdi, Armegan and Emre and not to forget Matt (hotel information for Spa) were a delight and made us laugh on many occasions which helped to make a wonderful holiday. We cannot fault the hotel and this has been one of our best holidays ever. The icing on the cake was the lovely friends we made during our stay. We will definitely return to the Sea Star Hotel. Thank you to everyone from Sue and Leo xx

Well where do we start....... Chose this hotel due to building work being done on our original hotel which was a five star we got at bargain price. We was apprehensive booking Sea Star as it classed as a four star hotel but was in the same price range. How unbelievably happy we was that we did change the hotel and staff are in our opinion are five star. If it could go up to ten star then this hotel would be it. The hotel was immaculate and our room beautiful the side view from the balcony was 100% better than what we expected. The food was lovely but slightly limited a bit of ice-cream could of rectified this ha ha.The pool area and private beach was very clean thanks to a very friendly and helpful mehmet who works really hard looking after the area. All of the staff were very friendly and more than helpful. One small problem........ and we are being picky here ...... was a pesky wasp..... just the one wasp...... and it was dealt with by a very brave Emere and Melis ha ha. We would recommend the spa we went on our first day and what a perfect way to start out holiday.
We would like to say a big thank-you to all the staff and even the other guests for making our first holiday together one we will never forget :)

We had a lovely, relaxing stay at this hotel. The fact that it was adult exclusive was a bonus, there was no fighting for the sunbeds, the staff were friendly and attentive and the rooms were lovely - big shower, good quality cleaning, nearly all rooms with a good view, bed a little hard for my taste but my husband slept well! We didn't mind that there was no evening entertainment because 2 minutes along the promenade there were lots of bars to go to with entertainment and it gave us the choice of having a peaceful night in or a night out.

We went all inclusive which was good, however the food was the only thing that slightly let this hotel down. Don't get me wrong - it wasn't bad! In fact the mezze dishes, the salads, the desserts were always fantastic! It was the hot food that let them down. Not very imaginative and pretty samey each night. There was a chef outside by the pool with a hotplate. It took us a while to figure out what he was doing as there were no signs and noone told us. It turned out he was a pasta chef. This was a bit of a waste of his efforts we thought,as the pasta didn't look that special and perhaps a better use of his time would be to grill outside - fresh fish or meat perhaps. In fact, if they did that dinner would be a much better experience.

Other than the Hot food, we loved our stay at Sea Star and would definitely go back. I would highly recommend the Turkish Bath experience in their spa too!

They are a new hotel and looking for feedback on how to develop, for me it would be the Hot Food and possibly drinks menus to be more readily available.

Room Tip: I think most rooms have at least a side view of the sea, which is still a really good view. It is a...

Having arrived quite late at this lovely hotel we were greeted very warmly by the reception staff who were waiting for us. They provided sandwiches, mezes and drinks in the lobby bar which were very welcome after a long day. This new hotel was absolutely spotless. The room we had was of a high standard we stayed on the top floor room 511 with a small balcony and sea view which was lovely. There were rooms on the front with bigger balconies and views so get one of those if you can although they would probably come at an extra cost. The king size bed was very firm but we found it very comfortable and the bathroom was immaculate with a huge shower to die for. There were no baths in any of the rooms and as I have a bad back I love to have a soak after a hard day in the sun. Although there was air conditioning we didn't feel as though it was as efficient as it could have been in our room and in some of the public areas which were very hot. We would have to agree with others that the food was a bit disappointing but plentiful and you could always find something but there is definitely room for improvement. One thing that we did miss was ICE CREAM! where was it? None to be found anywhere and much needed when sitting in the sun. As far as alcoholic drinks were concerned we found them to be of a high quality, Baileys, well known brands of spirits and soft drinks, all readily available and served throughout the day without any fuss whether at the pool or on the private beach. Again like others we hadn't realised that you could have cocktails at no extra cost and also that you could have different types of eggs for breakfast fried, omelettes, pancakes etc. Here we felt that there was a lack of information which could be easily remedied. Although we didn't use the spa everyone we spoke to said it was brilliant and the best they had ever had. We found the location of the hotel very good for us. It was in a quiet area of Icemeler with an easy stroll into the centre with livelier bars and hotels. In the other direction Marmaris was a lovely picturesque walk away. Finally the staff. Nothing too much trouble for anyone. Reception extremely welcoming and helpful. Housekeeping exceptional. Waiting and bar staff efficient and friendly, we would agree that some of the youngsters have still got a bit to learn but are trying hard. As like many others we have to mention Mehmet who is so helpful and friendly around the pool and at the beach.

Room Tip: Top floor is always good with sea view always worth a bit extra.

I have never written on trip advisor before, but I have just returned from the Sea Star hotel in Icmeler after a week away with my friend. We had the most amazing time. The hotel is new and immaculate. It's true the rooms are not massive and have limited storage, however these are not holiday breaking issues. As 2 woman away with lots of clothes we managed with no tears or tantrums.

The hotel is adult only and peaceful. My friend and I enjoy a laugh and a good time and had no problem enjoying ourselves in the Sea Star. The lack of (in my experience) Bad entertainment and loud music in the evenings gave us the opportunity to talk to people and actually get to know the other guests ( amazing people ! You know who you are) This also helped a few drinks go down some nights. There is plenty of bars, bands, karaoke , etc a stones throw away in the town. The back entrance leads to the shops and bars, no taxi required.

The food was not to everyone's taste, but my friend and I both agreed there was always something nice to eat. We ate very well and drank plenty. The service was on the ball and attentive day and night. Some younger staff will improve with experience. Reception staff including the wonderful reception manager could not do enough for you. The hotel manager is visible daily, which staff are fully aware of. I spent a reasonable amount of money in the spa. I had everything from a Turkish Bath, body scrub and body mud pack. hot stones, head massage and feet eating fish and others. I advise everyone to at least try a Turkish Bath. Again fantastic staff regardless of limited English. Not to forget Mehmet the lifeguard, he is hard working, friendly and very helpful in all areas of your holiday. Not to be overlooked when tipping.

This is a new hotel and does have small teething problems (quickly remedied in our experience) which I'm sure will not ruin your holiday, just relax and enjoy.

My friend and I would like to thank all the staff at the Sea Star for an incredible holiday. We will be back. Best holiday ever!
