Now back in rainy Scotland and missing this pool badly! Our 5th visit to Icmeler but first time staying at palm gardens. We had been a little worried as always stayed at another hotel which we also loved but looked at something a little more central and am very happy with our choice this year.

Hotel is nice and clean. Staff are all friendly and food nice also. No entertainment going on during the day at pool which had been something we had been used to but with the water slides on for 2 hours at a time rather than the usual half hour this didn’t
bother us at all.

The evening entertainment did make up for this. We stayed in a few times in evenings during our stay. Pool parties were amazing!! (Stayed in for both) We also stayed in during a party night and a bbq night both were fab and entertainment put on were brill! Must mention staff genuinely not too fussed if you stay in or go out.

Also worth mentioning is I found it really comfortable to eat and sit and chill in the restaurant as it was nice and cool. On speaking to the owner he said they had restructured it all recently so don’t know what it had been like previously but it’s fab now as nothing worse trying to eat when too hot.

Rooms clean and tidy, beds a little uncomfortable but heard this is next to be tackled so shows the hotel management is taking on feedback and sorting it out by investing back into his hotel.

Icmeler as always was amazing! Did loads including boat trips and the flag walk that only took me 5 years!

We are thinking of trying a different place next year other than Icmeler but should we return I would go back to this hotel.

All in all very happy with our holiday. Thank you to all and best wishes to you Laura Stephen and Ethan

Currently staying in this hotel on a week's stay. Its very hot in icmeler at the moment so the first thing you find is having to fork out for a remote control for the air con (currently £35 p/w) and extra fans (currently £15 p/w) for the room as you only get air con in the bedroom. You cant even open the balcony window for some respite as this results in the air con cutting out even though its a separate room!! For some strange reason and you have to pay in sterling despite arriving with a tonne of lira. This is my first time in turkey and i was surprised at how nearly everywhere wants you to pay in english notes rather than their own currency. The exchange rate has shot up since arriving but im sure it can drop too.

There's no tv in the room so the room is only good for sleeping (if you can get past the stuffy room) and showering in (abit of a shock after a recent visit to spain we had all the main english channels) and you can only access the wifi from the bar.

However its not all bad the staff are very friendly, the food and drink at the hotel is reasonably priced and they have entertainment such as bingo, quiz, kareoke and nights where for 30TL you get fed and entertained.

The pool complex is large with flumes for the kids (and grown up big kids) with plenty of sunbeds. You can also buy discounted tickets off the staff for the 2 waterparks nearby where you also get return transport included.

I may sound picky but i had an idea of how hot it was going to be but didnt expect to have to pay for items like air con which should be standard in a hot country like turkey

Just returned from another fantastic 15 nights at palm garden, 3rd year on the trot. Hotel was full and as usual kept perfectly clean with immaculate gardens. Pool is huge and the water is tested every day (small thing I noticed), fantastic slides for the kids and occasional pool activities.

The restaurant has a daytime and an evening menu, food is fantastic and priced similar to places outside. Party night and BBQ night are a must with some great entertainment.

Ali and his family along with Sahin and little Ali really are true gents and make your holiday one to remember every time. The kitchen staff and maids are so friendly always say Hi. Huge shout out to Ozgur who really gives 110% all day every day and night, a huge credit to palm garden. Also Mustafa (new this year) genuine nice guy nothing to much for him. Thanks all see you again in 2019...

Room tip: Ground floor for push chairs and wheel chairs

well what can I say we had a great holiday from start to finish at Palm Gardens. Ali and his staff are so nice and will do anything to help you stay be memorable. We had a pool view which was great. Food was lovely and plenty to chose from and just as check as outside the apartments. Bed so comfy and very spacious with good storage. You are only a street away from the hub so nice and peaceful both day and night. We will definitely return back here.
