fab family time
We had a great holiday at the Ekinci Palace. The staff were lovely. The rooms were cleaned daily . The pool and poolside area were well maintained. Our kids enjoyed the slide and the kids area. The shop was well stocked with your basic needs. You can get a full english for £2 brought to your room. Would recommend this place without a doubt. If you eat in Cabana around the corner, they give you your breakfast or lunch free next day and thier prices are very reasonable. Already looking to book here for next year. Likewise some of the people we met. Looking forward to going back.

I would rather rip out my toenails and dip my feet in vinegar than return.
The high spot of my recommendation is that the cleaners were great.
The food was appalling. Staff were initially keen to share their stories of financial difficulties rather than offer basic service. Service was sporadic - and affected by staff's inability to multi-task e.g. inappropriately flirt with females and serve food/clean pool/check-in/out other guests.

good holiday that suits most age groups
When we arrived at Ekinci Palace we were given an attic room these are not advisable for more that two peolpe thet are extremly hot and cramped.
We asked to be moved and was told we could the following day.
The room we moved to was better but there is no air conditiong in the lounge area were we was sleeping and the beds are not very good either we had a good view over the pool area but the downside is the music from the bar is very loud and goes on until after midnight and the bar itself does not close until everyone has gone. The staff at Ekinci Palace are excellent and go out of there way to make you feel welcome and enjoy your stay there.
Ekinci is only a short walk to the main town of Ichmeler where there is a good choice of bars and restaurants.
Overall we had a good hoiday and was better than expected after reading all the poor reviews.

Dirty and unkept
Arrived at 4am, shown our room where the floor was flooded from the fridge being defrosted, there was a dirty towel hanging out of the fridge and another just chucked on the floor to help mop up the water. One bed was broken, the pillows were yellow and stained, the sofa bed was so filthy that I refused to let my daughter sleep on it. The kitchen cupboard handles were broken, there was toothpaste all over the bathroom door. Our friends who stayed in the room next door had similar issues as well as the patio door glass being broken, which was replaced at 9am the morning after we arrived whilst our friends were still in bed! The sunbeds were all reserved by 11pm the previous night and the pool water was very murky looking.
The rep for Thomas Cook was very good and was able to move us to the Mitos hotel, which was perfect, so perfect we have booked to stay at the Mitos again.

We stayed at ekinci palace for two weeks in sept. the apartments were what we expected, basic,clean & in a nice location,a 10 minute walk to the resort centre.The pool area was great for the first week then the pool itself turned green & cloudy, nobody was stopped from entering the pool which was a surprise. they did`nt get it cleaned until our last day so it was the beach for the last week.The food was o.k. but it was no where near as good in most of the places we ate in the resort (too many to mention). The only downside to our holiday was the flight home, it was delayed 3 hours, which was a long time to spend in the most expensive airport in europe(£14 for a beer & a coke!)
Overall we a fantastic holiday t a great resort with very nice people, great food & drink.We are definity
returnig next year

2 weeks of total relaxation
anyone wanting a relaxing laid back holiday this is a must. first time in icmeler and it wont be the last.
everything you need,sun,sea,nice beach,nice people,very little hassle from people trying to get you to eat or drink or buy anything. lazy day boat trip around the islands is a great cheap way to spend a day away. there are many other trips available if you prefer to travel a bit further.
hotel was fine,quite adequate for self catering. pool and bar area nice and clean,plenty of sun beds.
plenty of bars and eating places close by. a nice 10 minute stroll takes you to the resort centre.
prices throughout very reasonable for food and drink.
overall a very enjoyable holiday, cant wait to give it another go.
