Just 9 more days and getting a BIT anxious ...

Never been to Icmeler before and we leave in 9 days time for a 10 night stay. I'm just woried now that as it's the start of the season that nothing at all will be open and that our hotel (Devamli) is going to turn out to be a nightmare. I usually get the jitters before we travel and to be brutally honest we got a REALLY good deal on this booking in February with Thomson) Can anyone set my mind at rest. We're a couple in our 50's so NOT looking for nightclubs etc just a bit of sun, and some nice food in the evenings and some time to catch up with each other.

To all who travel soon (and even to those who don't !!) have a fab time in Icmeler and bring back LOADS of happy memories.

Absolutley no need to panic. yes the resort is quiet but there are still bars open as well as restaurants. More and more will be opening the week that you are there.

On the plus side the resort will be shiny and new. the Devalmi is a good hotel in a great location so you should have no issues there. Weather at the moment is warm during the day however it is much cooler at night and you almost certainly need a light jacket at night

marmaris is just along the road about a 15 minute dolmus ride away and is a much busier resort. It is worthwhile going through for the day and going to the marina and the bazaar

have a great time when you get there and remember to let us know how you are getting on, prices of food and drink etc

Have a brilliant time, sure you will love it. As has been said, the Devalmi is in a great location for Icmeler town and a short walk in the opposite direction and you can be in the Old Village which is lovely and peaceful, mountain backdrop and probably some locals working on their land. I doubt there will be much going in there apart from some apartments open for business. There is a thread on ICR from someone out there at the moment and they have said that there are a few places open at the moment but more getting ready, no matter what is available to you I am sure you will have a fantastic relaxing time.

Seagull, I'm sure you will have a fantastic time in Icmeler. As the others have already said, the Devamli is a lovely hotel in a fantastic location. More and more places are opening their doors every day, and the weather will be getting a bit warmer too, so I'm sure you will have nothing to worry about. Relax, have a great holiday - and don't forget to let us all know how you get on!

You will have a great time. We usually have a week in May and the weather is just right, not to hot. Almost everything will be open and being the beginning of the season you can get a bit of rain but this will not spoil the holiday it only lasts for 30 minutes and everything smells so fresh. The only problem you will have is becoming addicted to the place, like so many others including me.

Have a wonderful holiday and try the boat trips, lazy day is well worth trying.

THANK YOU all so very much. I'm really looking forward to this holiday as we need some time away after a stressful year (my sister in law has had cancer, my sister has been very poorly with an autoimmune disease and I've recently returned to work after a year away with chronic back problems) I think as ever it's just last minute nerves.
