29/7/14 to 19/8/14

Flew from Manchester on the 29th July with Monarch. Upon arrival at airport we had a 3 hour delay. Original flight time was 3.50pm. Lots of turbulence during flight. Usually have a private transfer through ICR, but this year chose a shuttle, again through ICR. Through passport control and claimed luggage we arrived at transfer desk and waited a further 30 mins for transfer to get underway. Took 2hrs from leaving Dalaman to arriving at the Rhodes apts. By this time it was 4am. This was our 3rd stay at the Rhodes.Great place to stay and we were glad to finally arrive after leaving our house at 1pm it had seemed like an epic journey. We did not notice much change in Icmeler, though we did anticipate some changes after reading some posts on TA. Average exchange rate for us was 3.55. This was the first time we had holidayed for 3 weeks. It just flew by..Met some familiar faces, who all contributed to making our holiday a good one. Spent a lot nights in Tin Tins bar, what a great find for us. No pressure here, just a good atmosphere and good music, low enough to hold a conversation which made a change from trying to be heard. Tried lots of new places to eat, Holiday bar/ restaurant, nice place and good food. Love star, was also a first for us, good food at a good price. We spent a great evening at the Babadan Hotel, our friends were staying there. They put on a great night to help celebrate our friends wedding anniversary. Food was excellent as was the entertainment. Captain Sinbads, Sidiks, Champagne, Harry Rams, Waterfall, Winehouse and as ever, my favourite, Hanedans. All served great food...TinTins also do good food at a very reasonable price along with being the cheapest place to get an Efes...Did the Surf and turf boat trip, through Icmeler travel center, still the best AI boat trip by far. A great day out and worth every penny..Spent the day in Turunc, sunbathing and shopping...Infact lots of browsing around the shops in Icmeler. It was extremely hot whilst we were there, sometimes touching 40 and above.. So it was quiet through the day and more signs of life once the sun went down. The square was very busy at night along with the prom... Our flight time home was 3am, so transfer picked us up at 10.15 pm. Arrived at Dalaman at 12.40am. Think we will stick with the private transfer next year. We had a great time in Icmeler, yet again, and we will be returning next year. We have already booked the Rhodes. If you have yet to travel have a great holiday and a safe journey..Serefe...

Thanks for the review Sheila B. Glad you had a great time despite all the negative comments about the changes. Like you we didn't notice much difference.

I also enjoyed reading your review Sheila B and we have also eaten in many of the places you mentioned and enjoyed our meals. I must give Tin Tins a try as it seems to get really good reviews by forum members. We too enjoyed our holiday this year and the changes didn't affect our feelings of Icmeler which we still consider to be a great holiday destination.

From the main square as you look across the road to ICR walk down the side street at Tandori Sizzler and keep walking you will come to Tin Tins. Hope you enjoy your holiday.

Good review thanks for sharing. Tin Tins is my favourite bar in Icmeler, great prices, lovely staff and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Only wish the music was a wee bit more up to date. Its always busy as well which is a good sign and its usually the same folks we see who have been going for years
