“Gutted the bar man who was new was the rudest man I have ever met.”
Reviewed 24 March 2011

I have stayed here 4 times and the first 3 were the best holidays I have ever had, however last year was total change the bed's were like sand bags and the new bar manager had the worst attitude I have ever encountered and the other staff were also rude and unhelpful. The two working in reception were always kissing behind the door the chap serving food clearly did not want to be there, and the bar manager clearly did not want the bar to be open passed 10pm and if this is the case shut the bar and dont serve but instead he stayed open and was so rude. Even when I tried to learn som Turkish he was offended that I had said one work slightly wrong. I would like to go back as like I said 3 years running we had a great time. But unless the staff had changed there would be no chance.

we have been staying here since 2007. in 2009 we won a free weeks holiday in a competition - brilliant. the bar staff used to be so friendly until we went to the sister hotel- grand aquarium for a meal. a certain member of the bar staff went in a strop and never spoke to us for the rest of our holiday, he even refused to serve us at the bar. this spoilt our holiday and from that day we have vowed never to go again. he just seemed to have his favourite people he always served and hung around with .

We arrived at this hotel in Sept 10 we were there for 2 weeks. First impressions was the view i have to say that this was the best bit about this Hotel other than that the rooms are so dated (i think sombody was on an acid trip when they decorated them!!) there was no way could you have cooked in this very basic kitchen the beds where awful we did not sleep properly for 2 weeks, there was only 2 members of staff that where freindly other than that we nicked name this place HOTEL CHARISMA!!! however it was very clean the maids did a great job every day. There is a walk to the resort but not to bad. Overall we had a great holiday but they are what you make them.

Well what can I say, Fantastic hotel, great pools.

There are only around 30 rooms which meant it wasn't too busy. Other people staying here had been many times and there was a great atmosphere.

But to top it all off......Oscar and Adem behind the bar, they simply couldn't do enough to make our stay amusing, relaxing and enjoyable.....great craic!

Lovely quiet location 15 mins walk away from the center of Icmeler, caught taxi's back if to hot to walk or at night ( 8 turkish lira). Stayed in a one bedroom apartment, plenty big enough for 2 adults, but not for 4. Stunning views over Icmeler with balcony. Room clean, spotless fridge and microwave, towels changed everyday,(wonderful) but room needs a little TLC and furnishing's are looking tired. Lovely pool's, gardens and bar area. Friendly staff . You must visit the Wednesday market, it's very entertaining with plenty of genuine fake watches, t'shirts and handbags, as they say. Plenty of bars and restaurents. Recommend the Diva Bar, ideal place to sit and people watch with a large cold beer.

This was my first visit to Turkey, I loved it and the people, cannot wait to see more.

Come on Club Aquarium crack on with the TLC and you will have lovely apartments in an ideal location with stunning views, it's time to get a make over on the inside, the outside is perfect.

We have recently stayed at The Cub Aquarium in Icmeler Turkey and found everything very good indeed. Special thanks to all the staff who were all very friendly and hospitable and nothing was to much trouble for them. Our room was kept exceptionaly clean for the 2 weeks that we stayed there and the beautifull gardens, pool areas and restaurant were particualry good. We ate there a couple of times and the food was always well presented and delicious .
Thanks also to Oscar and Adam in the bar who seemed to be there every moment of the day , Thanks to Ocar for the hilarious antics whenever Liverpool were playing he is definately a Turkish scouser were football is concerened.
It is a 10 - 15 minute walk from the hotel to the center and is set in a quiet area away from all the hustle and bustle of some of the crazy bars and restuarants in Icmeler.
All in all it was a fabulous holiday and we enjoyed every minute we would recommend these apartments to anyone.
We also went on a boat trip called " Surf and Turf " which was an all inclusive trip but with a difference we were picked up at our hotel at 9.00am and driven through the most incedible scenery to a small jetty where we joined the small boat which only takes about 35 people and it was a beautiful trip. We were taken to small coves and places were the other big boats don't go, after a lunch to die for on the boat we then return to the coach and taken back to the hotel via the amazing scenery again , a fabulous day day out highly recommended to anyone.
Once again many thanks to everyone at the Club Aquarium and wish them all the best for the future !

Oh my god i really dont think anyone who has written a bad review on this place stayed at the same club aquarium as us,dont let it put you off! I work as a travel agent and know this is one of the best properties in icmeler for a self catering holiday. We travelled in four seperate families with a mix of age groups of 1 to 56 we have stayed here in previous years but was our first time back there in 4years. It was still just as amazing as four years ago, everything is spotless clean around the property not a thing out of place and staff are really friendly. It was high season when we stayed so yes we did need 2 put our towels down on a morning to get a bed which is the same as anywhere you stay in height of season any towels put down before 7:30am were removed though which was good. The location of the property was ideal for us about a 10 min walk to the centre but with it being a bit further back the views are fantastic over the whole resort and out to the sea, this also makes it quieter on an evening. The rooms were great there were only 2 of us in our room maybe be a bit more cramped for a family but would recommend asking for room 1 or 36 as rooms are a lot bigger. They are clean and tidy the maid comes every day and was very friendly. The food is also really good and cheaper than restraunts in the resort we ate here twice on an evening food was great n you also get free bread, starter n fruit for desert. Would defo reccomend english breakfast very nice and less than £2. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday with stunning views n dont mind being a little bit out of the centre this place is ideal but if u want somehere where there is more going on for kids would reccomend the grand aquarium as they have an entertainment team and the property is bigger. Overall a fantastic time you would not be disapointed if you go here.
