Hi there. My son's school has a two-week break in October this year, so my wife, he and I have booked to go to Icmeler during the first week. We're off to the Babadan Apartments to one week from 20th October (I.e. the week BEFORE the usual half term holiday). We got a remarkable deal with Thomson and we're really looking forward to it.
We've been to Turkey several times before, though never to Icmeler and never in October. I know the temps will be low 20s, cool at night with some rain and that's fine. Also that some places will be closing down. But I've seen a couple of posts saying that some places drain their pools before the end of October. I really hope that won't be the case at Babadan as there was no alert on the Thomson website mentioning that (although there was one saying the kids club would be closed, which is not a problem). I wonder if anyone who has been at that time of year can reassure me about the Babadan pool situation at that time of year.
Beyond that, anrecommendations on places to go, eat etc. near these apartments would be very welcome. Thanks.
