Great holiday in Icmeler
We had a really good holiday at the Marti Resort hotel in Icmeler. The staff were friendly and courteous, the hotel facilities first class, the food excellent.
The resort manager was available every day, always helpful, and the excursion she arranged for our group was interesting and enjoyable. Notwithstanding the slightly unreliable weather to be expected in mid April, we had a great time, and would certainly return to Turkey.

Great relaxing holiday
Had a fantastic holiday at the Marti Resort Hotel in Turkey. This was our 3rd visit, the first approx 10 years ago, then 2011 and again this year. We love the hotel, the people and Icemeler itself. Sophie the Thomas Cooke Rep was great and couldn't do enough fo me and my husband, and she did remember us from last year.
The only disapointment this year was that our favourite bar/restaurant, The Bamboo, had made way for a new market area. The Marti is the best hotel in town and this year we had a room with an amazing view, which was the exact view of Icemeler Bay as it appears on all the photographs on your holiday brochures.
Ofcourse everything must come to an end. I understand that Thomas Cooke has ceased to be at The Marti next year. We felt they they were part of this great hotel and to us they will be missed. I believe that 'Thomsons' have moved in!
Thanks to Thomas Cooke for 2 great holidays at The Marti!

We stayed at the Marti Hotel and our room was a bit disappointing. My son had what looked like a single 'hospital' bed whci was stuck in the middle of the sitting room. It certainly wasn't what was advertised in the brochure.
The bath had a crack in it and we found old comic books under the bed from previous guests. The airconditioning was terrible and made a racket.
The cleaner just came in whenever he wanted and was very forceful. He even appeared at 8am one morning,
We had to pay for internet access in the room, terrible service for a supposed 5 star

WOW! this resort is just incredible! we could not recommend it enough to anyone and are already planning our trip back! We arrived in late June for a weeks stay, served a cocktail on arrival and our bags were taken up to our rooms. The accomadation was lovely, our view not the best but we only used our room for sleeping and showering!
We had chosen to go all inclusive and I would agree that it is amazing value for money, we ate and drank like kings everyday and there was great variety in all of the resturants. On my birthday my partner hired one of the beachuts, definately worth doing, lunch snacks and drinks all served a butler and AIR CONDITIONING on the beach....fab when lunch was 45*c. The hotel also paid for our dinner at the italian resturant as a complementary gift for my birthday, which was lovely! On My partners birthday they sent up a cake to the room!
My Tip would be you dont need to leave the resort, it had everything you need to make sure your stay is wonderful, however if you do venture out the VIP goulet cruise is a must. The staff in this hotel treat you like royalty and the guest relations team are the best Ive ever had. If you go you will LOVE it, like we did. Thankyou to the entire Marti team and we cant wait to come back!!

The resort was really good and sounded like one of the best in Icmeler. We had all inclusive holiday and I definitelly recommend it. The food is fantastic and the whole team at the main restaurant was brilliant! They go out of their way to give you tons of different food every night, catering for diet food and children as well, so perfect. Loads of choice to eat and they even have once a week a Turkish night, which is brilliant! There is always something prepared to entertain you and that's fab.
The room was great. We had to change it once, but thanks to the fantastic Thomas Cook rep - Sophie - we got another room and all was perfect. The rooms are really clean and they do take care of them.
The pools and the beach are brill! Loved them. The hotel has its own beach, which is great.
One minus thing - do not take massages from the hotel. They are a rip-off and pretty much all the same. Both of us took a different massage, paid 35 GBP on each and although one was an anti-stress massage and another was an aromatherapy massage, we got the same massage and I certainly got no aromatherapy with it. The Turkish bath was cool, but again expensive, when you see in the city you can get it for a lot less (4GBP) and we paid 35GBP... big rip -off there!
Trips are fantastic! We took a jeep safari to Cleopatra Island and the company they employ is super fun!
Sophie - the Thomas Cook rep - she is there every day and don't know how she manages it, but always has a smile on her face and a solution to any problem one might have. Do go to her induction, it's worth it.
All in all, loved it.
