The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Set on the southeast coast of Turkey where the Aegean Sea meets the Mediterranean, the beach resort of Icmeler has a distinctly European flavour, with luxury yachts bobbing in the bay and a cosmopolitan crowd of holidaymakers sipping cocktails at the sea-front bars. Its package-holiday aura is, however, tempered by its scenic setting, with steep hills clad in pine forests plunging into the turquoise waters all around the town. Icmeler has a relaxed village atmosphere and is scrupulously clean and well maintained, from its regularly raked shingly sand beaches to its litter-free promenade. The town is also resplendent with well-kept gardens, which soften the lines of the dozens of hotel and apartment blocks.
Shopping - Icmeler does have a central shopping mall, which is adequate for acquiring essentials and having a pleasant browse for souvenirs. There is a local market on Wednesdays where bargain hunters and hagglers can test their skills. Serious shoppers, though, would be better advised to take a short dolmus taxi ride into nearby Marmaris where it is possible to literally shop 'til you drop', especially in the fascinating covered bazaar of the old town.
Restaurants - Icmeler is well-supplied with restaurants of all sorts, but most visitors particularly enjoy local specialities like Guvec, a clay-pot casserole, or tasty kebabs, washed down with some Turkish wine or raki, the traditional aniseed spirit. Good choice for Turkish cuisine is the Turkish House in Turunc Road where the food is served up to the tune of traditional music. For good steaks a favourite is the Love Boat at the Devamli Hotel. For variety the menu at the Majestic Restaurant is a mix of Chinese, Indian and Italian. On Sundays the Kingsland Chinese Restaurant above the undercover market surprisingly serves up a top British lunch.
Nightlife - Icmeler is not a clubbing resort, but there are plenty of pubs, which keep hopping with a lively atmosphere until the wee hours. The nightlife may be low key, but those who want something more frenetic have only to grab a dolmus taxi and ride a short distance to Marmaris, where the pace is hotter. Icmeler does have several nightclubs which provide for those who enjoy a dance, and some of the bars have discos, karaoke and live shows.
Activities - Having a magnificent beach, Icmeler is primarily a sun, sea and sand holiday destination, and a wide variety of watersports are on offer at the resort hotels and along the sea front. Those who feel inclined to make excursions, however, will find plenty of interest. Favourites are boat trips to 'Cleopatra's Isle', the waterfalls of Pamukkale with their therapeutic spring waters, and the archaeological site of Ephesus.

We have just returned from a two week stay in this property and everything was perfect. It is based in a small well maintained complex containing just eight apartments (two blocks of four) and this one definitely has the best location. In the morning you can sit on the side balcony and watch the sun come up over the mountains, by mid-morning it is in the shade and provides a welcome spot to cool down and take break from the sun if it becomes too hot for you on the main balcony/pool area.
The location is very quiet and peaceful despite being only a few minutes walk from the main bars, restaurants and shopping area. The town of Icmeler has a policy that prevents loud music being played after midnight and this is strictly enforced by the local police. If you want to stay out longer, the bars remain open after this time and we've made some great friends over the years, both staff and fellow tourists, during this quiet time where you get a chance to talk to each other without music.
I agree with all the positive comments made in the two previous reviews, the apartment is lovely, Pat and Gary who represent the owners could not have been more helpful, for Turkish cuisine Nefis Pide is great, The Waterfall has the best location and wonderful food (if you like hot curries try their Lamb/Chicken Madras – it's delicious, full of fresh chillies and not for the faint-hearted).
We have been to Icmeler three times, this year was our first stay in this apartment we have already booked it again for next year.

We have always rented an appartment whenever we go to Turkey- and we found this one to be the best.
Graham, the owner was great- everything went very smoothly, from booking the appartment to organising our taxi pick up at Dalaman airport
It is very well equiped and the pool area is fantastic. The pool is a deacent size and was very quiet and private- which we liked.
The main selling point is easy access from the appartment to the pool via the living room doors- no stairs! and we felt very secure in the appartment- even though it is on the ground floor.
The area is great- lots of good quality restaurants and shops, we found Bob at the Robin Hood bar on the corner to be particularly helpful- giving us lots of hints and tips about the area
Icmeler is a fantastic area- its a cut above marmaris!
Would 100% reccommend this appartment to others- you wont be disappointed.

My wife, twelve ear old son and myself had a wonderful two week stay at Lal Residence in Icmeler.
The Apartment was in good conditon, had all the bedding, cutlery, utensils and crockery we needed and more.
We where met on arrival by Gary, and later Pat, who represent the owners localy. We were given contact numbers for all eventualities and advised wherever necessary.
The pool was cleaned daily as was the garden, and we found that other people staying where good company too.
The apartment is situated 5 minutes walk the town center and 8 minutes walk from the pristine beach. Nearest shops and bars are a two minute walk.
Icmeler itself is lovley and has everything you might want form quiet areas to nighlife. The very best restaurants we found were Nefis Pide which is a traditional Turkish restaurant and take away oppen 24 hrs a day and frequented by more loclas than tourists. We found this such a good place to eat we ate there 8 night out of 13! It should be noted that it is also very good vale for money, and also does pizzas, though Lachmacun is better!
We also like the Love Boat restaurant though avoid the salmon (a bad choice on reflection, a cold water fish in a Turkish town and it was frozen!) However the steak was fantatstic as was the starters of Boregi and chicken wings. Very good wine list too.
The Waterfall (recommended by Graham the owner) was another good restaurant.
All the local bars are staffed by friendly keen people glad of your business and willing to help wherever possible. My son made fast friends with the staff of the Robin Hood bar and would eat lunch with the staff most days. When he got an infection of the ear the staff drove around town in the evening to find a chemist open and bought him eardrops and tablets.
Recommended tours...any boat trip especially seven Islands trip, Turtle Beach trip. Quad safari is a must for all kids tall enough to drive a Beach Buggy or quad bike, or accompanied by an adult.
A full range of water sports is available and we did most of them. Prices standard throughout the town generally but we found the No Name agency near the beach promenade best for trips.
From point of booking we found the owners extremely helpful and would take this opportunity to thank them.
Book with confidence and I assure you you will enjoy!
