Just arrived back after one week break with the family of 8 inc children. Greeted by friendly staff all of them are billiant and so helpful. First time in a Turkish bath thank you Aydin Sari for a great experience. During our stay Aydin became part of our family, he was great with children & has a good sense of humour, thank you so much Aydi, like i said " it was a pleasure for you to meet me" LOL. The pool was cold but you soon got used to it, children were it pool 9am everyday until 4pm they loved the slide.The town life is very close 5 mins in taxi lots of lovely place to eat, can recommend Richards Place, they will even taxi you back to hotel after meal or pick you up if you request it, staff are brilliant & sociable. Coca beach is good free sun beds & shades & waiter service for drinks & refreshments.
Would we return, Definitely.

Well what can I say about this place, we stayed here in August family of four, we found the staff rude and unhelpful , food very basic, oh and you have to wear these silly wrist bands which you have to top up with money at reception because they have a no cash policy!! Just means you are constantly running to reception to top up . Also there are not enough sun loungers for the guests , and unless you are up at 6.30 to grab one you aren't gettin one!! Also the hotel is situated right at the back of the resort , so you are in for a walk to get to the main resort. Rooms are clean but are very small and very very basic , the beds for the kids are a joke as they are fold out chairs.not good!! We have been to Turkey a fewtimes now and this was definitely the worst , there are much better hotels in this resort for less money

Just returned from the Grand Aquarium on the 26th October even through its near the end of their season we had fantastic time and will be going back at some point.

The staff and the entertainment team were brilliant I won't name there names as their all as good as each other In there own ways.

The food was good and value for money to be honest we went into town which is about a two minute ride in a taxi and the prices remained around the same just different choices I would suggest you go into town to eat as the food is also excellent we liked Yolo restaurant and the Champagne restaurant but their are many more to chose from

The beach was nice and plenty of beds to use even though it's a course sand but never less worth a vist just like their shops with all the fake goods on offer remember to barter for everything even the taxi as its a way of life in Turkey.

The Grand Aquarium has a great size swimming pool with a water slide that comes on at certain times of the day for the adults and children to use.

The Grand Aquarium has a sister hotel called Club Aquarium which you can use with their free shuttle bus.

They have entainment most nights and will show all televised football matches the evening finishes off with the Bingo great fun for all the family.

The rooms were a good size with clean towels provided each day. You have a room maid each morning who provides house keeping.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who looking at self catering. It's worth a visit should you be looking for some were central but also situated in a nice quite area.

One item that's woth a mention is how the Grand Aquarium takes payment while purchasing your daily needs should it be food or beer they give you a watch that has a chip in and you put money on the chip so all payments are taken from this chip and evey time a payment is made they will issue you the receipt and even tell you how much money is on the chip just in case you need to top it up great idea when your with the family.

Well worth a visit in my opinion .

Room Tip: A view over looking the pool in the best room to have.

My family and I stayed here end of September and the hotel was beautiful so picturesque, and the grounds and pool were well kept and clean.The rooms were adequate but needed a little maintenance and would have liked a t.v.(I know that sounds sad) . Pool was very cold. Food was great. Staff were very pleasant and welcoming. Turkish bath was an experience and great fun.I couldn't really comment on the entertainment because we did not stay at the hotel in the evenings as we spent them in Icmeler town.
Location was great it was 5 mins by dolmus or taxi into Icmeler and cost about 50p. Plenty of bars, restaraunts, shops and the beach. We found everyone in Icmeler to be very friendly and good fun.
Definitely would return to this hotel!

Room Tip: I honestly think you can not go wrong with any room you stay in.

Just returned from our first trip to Turkey - and it definitely won't be our last!

Everyone at the Grand Aquarium made us so welcome from the second we arrived we really didn't want to leave.

Robbie and Mr Hassan were amazing and always welcomed us with a smile. They took time to talk to you and play with the kids. The food was incredible as was the entertainment provided by Nani and Cem - we're still laughing at their antics! Thank you to Aiden for recommending the Turkish Bath - a lovely experience.

Everything was kept very clean and the staff extremely helpful which made it such an enjoyable experience.

I will def be going back next year - can't wait!! :o) xxx
