Me and my mum have been going to Icmiler for the past 8 years as it is so safe, cheap, has so much to do, great beach, the turkish people are absolutely lovely, good shopping, relaxing and the food and drinks are such good value and so yummy!
It was our first time staying at the Bonjour Hotel as we originally stayed in the Old Village. The Bonjour had been recommended to us and we popped in in 2010 and decided to book for 2011.
To start with the staff were really lovely, especially Speedy by the bar. He was always happy to help and was a lot of fun round the pool. The waiters in the restaurant too were friendly and did their best to assist you at all times. Being in the hotel it meant we got bed and breakfast which was awesome. By the second week I fancied a change and so they made me toast with cheese and beans without any questioning which was great.
The bonjour restaurant is lovely to eat in at night time, however some people tended to eat there every night because you would always be asked to by the staff. DON'T. Icmiler has so many great places to eat it would be silly to not try them all. Champagne bar is always busy and is so good for food and drinks. It also has entertainment which is great for families. The Majestic is also a really good place to eat situated on the canal, in the heart of all the entertainment. They have a Chinese chef so if you fancy Chinese it is definitely worth a visit.
The hotel rooms are cleaned daily and are kept in a pristine condition. The pool is great as you share the IDA hotel pool as well which is owned by the same man. This means that whether you want to lie in the sun or the shade there is sun loungers in all positions. Sometimes you did have to get up earlyish - 8am to put the towels out but that was only when big groups didn't go to the beach. Talking of the beach it is a 5 minute walk away and is lovely with water sports offered if you are interested in that.
The hotel is in a perfect position with cash exchange offices opposite it, as well as a supermarket and a pharmist literally next door. If you fancy going to Marmaris it is a 2 minute walk from the Dolmus (bus) stop, which is cheap and a really quick/traditional way of travelling. These run every 5 minutes so it is really easy to get between the two.
All in all it was a lovely holiday, the staff were friendly and not sleazy in the slightest and I would recommend for anyone to stay there!
