I was deciding between 3 hotels to stay in Cesme and chose this one. Great decision.
Despite being pretty old it's still the best one in Cesme area. During our 5 day stay we visited the other two we were considering (Radisson and Boyalik) and to help other travelers, Sheraton is far better.
First, and most important, it's on the central and best part of the beautiful Ilica beach. Private sunbeds and umbrellas on fine white sand are included. Hotel's beach part is very wide and easy accessible (contrary the other two).
It has 3 wings, and kind staff accommodated us in the best right wing (above the pool) on the top floor with direct sea view from our terrace.
Room is little bit dated, but nothing to complain if you're not that spoiled. Daily cleaned with everything you need, and still nicely decorated.
Hotel lobby is big and very ornate. Fast check-in and kind help of receptionist Mr. Erdogan, very communicative and pleasant man, made jokes on his surname.
Big pool, nice and clean, but who needs it besides such a beautiful sea.
We had half board, which was this year different due to Covid. The rich buffet was displayed behind window stalls, but you couldn't take it on your own, but the staff did it for you. No limitations on quantity, while the quality was great, from soups and starters over the mains and salads to desserts.
One day we paid for the spa, great experience. Cesme is well known for its thermal springs, hence the name. One of them supplies Sheraton with thermal water, around 42'C. There're 3 thermal pools - one with heated sea water and two with natural thermal of different temperature. Price is 75 TL pp (around 9 Euros) for the day (in and out as many times you want). Besides those 3 pools, there's hammam, sauna, tepidarium and private outside pool. Massages are paying extra.
Covid measures were treated very strictly, with all measures put on high priority, which made us feel very safe. All in all it was a great stay, I would recommend.
TIP: for best rates contact the hotel directly, namely Mr. Ugurcan who I would like to personally thank for giving us great rates and terrific room.
