We booked our holiday the December previous and were really looking forward to staying at Club Petunya. We have stayed in Icmeler on 8 occasions and Turkey 19 times so pretty much know what to expect for 3 star.
I have to say I was a little disappointed with the apartments. They are cleaned daily and the pool and bar area is nicely kept. The food is excellent, both the breakfasts and the dinners. The bar is run by two people, the Manager, Byram who was very pleasant and helpful and Spike. They were both pleasant and helpful although we did feel that guests who spent far more time round the pool/bar area than we did were spoken to far more than we were so we didn't feel that we built up the usual bond that you build up with your bar staff.
Having said that, we had a brilliant holiday as we know so many people in Icmeler we seem to spend the first 2/3 days visiting everyone.
The apartment was clean and spacious although it was lacking in some final touches. The settee and table and chairs had been moved onto the balcony (which was big) so it left a big space in the lounge area. The bedroom was large with the usual drawers/wardrobe. The bathroom was very small with no shower curtain (as is sometimes the norm in Turkey) so the bathroom was swimming with water after a shower. There was no hairdrier as stated in the brochure and I didn't take one so that was a bit inconvenient.
There should also have been a jazz bar downstairs but this didn't exist. The toilets were down there and it looked as if they were in the process of doing it. It smelt damp so whether it had been used in the past and there was a problem I don't know but it certainly needs cleaning out. This information should really be removed from the Thomson brochure as it is misleading.
Icmeler is a fab place, the Cafe Del Mar on the path to Marmaris and Cafe Rose are lovely. So is the Secret Garden (behind Bonjour Hotel). Captain Sinbad in the old village is a great place to eat - very relaxing. Sidyk will ensure you have a lovely meal. Try the garlic mushrooms.
I have already booked for next year but am staying at Efem Apartments as I feel they are possibly nicer than Club Petunya.
