Fantastic relaxing holiday in Icmeler,Turkey!!
We have recently arrived home,after spending an amazing 2 weeks at the gourgously beautiful Aqua Hotel.From the moment we arrived,we were made to feel special.The staff were friendly,warm and welcoming,and nothing was too much trouble.The food was of gormet standard,and the choice was outstanding!The waiters would sometimes pick a flower from the garden,and sprinkle the petals on the table at mealtimes for us,and during the day,if you just want to relax by the pool,staff would come round with ice - cold flannels for you to use to cool down,and fresh melon / fruit salad to nibble on.The beach was just outside the hotel,so we didnt have far to walk,and even though there was a large variety of shops outside the front of the hotel,it was a joy to walk around them as it was peaceful and relaxing...not the hustle and bustle you would find in a main, more lively area as you would the centre of Marmarus,for example.My partner and I,are both in our mid fourties,but there were all age groups at our hotel.I would however,not recomend the Aqua for a family...more for couples / groups of friends only...as there are limited activities for children,and they may get bored quite quickly.
If your looking for a holiday where you can fully chill out,relax,and feel pampered,then i would totaly reccomend the Aqua hotel....i cant wait to go again!!! :-)

Turkey in Autumn
Thomas cook services were great.. Hotel was fab, straight onto the beach. The rooms are lovely and the beds are the best ever. Not the best all-lnclusive I have been to, they seem a little usure but enjoyed it all the same. Food was lovely and always plenty of it, some waiter servie a little slow with drinks and clearing up etc .Not sure about the entertainment as there wasnt any apart from a film and a bit of music... but it might have been the time of year. Reception staff were fantastic. The weather was lovey for October 25 degrees.

A GOOD HOLIDAY
We've holidayed a lot in the last few years - but this was a first to Turkey and I'd go again..The Turks were pretty good hosts though some of the hotel bar staff were hard a bit 'restrained' in their enthusiasm - it needed a longer holiday to get used to them perhaps - we were there for a week.
Just accept the aircon charge and the fridge charge and the safe charge - the trips were the cheapest we've met and just as good as more expensive ones we've had. Watch the 'Captain Morgan' though as it varied a lot - but was changed every time I complained.
Plenty of cheap but good meals around which brings me to the hotel meals. Generally not very good compared with many other hotels elsewhere - but at least I didn't eat too much or put on weight as I usually do !
We'll go to Turkey again - perhaps even to the same hotel but then it's a big country - - -
We bought a small carpet and may not have been ripped off - well not a lot and we didn't spend much on other things.
British TV too which was worth having now and then.The pool is salt water and the sea good to swim
All in all it was good value and enjoyable.

Relaxing holiday in turkey
I stayed at the Aqua Hotel in Icmeler in Sept 11 for 2 weeks. My husband and I had a fabulous holiday. The hotel was fantastic, great food, great all round. No complaints at all. I would definitely recommend Icmeler as a resort to visit, and the Aqua Hotel was so comfortable, probably one of the best hotels in Icmeler. We flew with Thomas Cook but booked with Direct Holidays. Flight times etc were great, no delays and everything from departure to arrival both ways was excellent. We did speak with the Thomas Cook rep in our Hotel for assitance at one point and she was absolutely excellent, so helpful. She was always there if anyone needed advice or help with anything. We also had assistance again from a Thomas Cook rep at Dalman Airport, again extremely helpful. Overall our holiday was great and we would definitely book again withThomas Cook/Direct Holidays. The only small negative was that the seats on the plane were definitely a bit cramped and the inflight entertainment appears to have now been stopped. Apart from that everything was terrific.

great family holiday in the Aqua, Icmeler
Whilst Thomas Cook may be struggling in the market place due to market forces beyond their control I believe they are doing a great job on the ground-where it really matters to us- the holiday makers!
For us ,once again, the scheduled times of flights were adhered to, with no delays, that can ruin part of a holiday!
For the first time, we are considering the same booking for 2012 ,particularly for the same cost!
