The most favourite thing about Icmeler for me after its friendly people,stunning scenery and delectable food is the drink called Efes.
Served in bottles or on draught it is truly the nectar of the gods. Arriving in the resort on our first day and having a pint of Efes delivered in a frosted glass.
The picture shows my weeks supply of Efes being delivered.

Arrived at the Aqua evening time, after an everlasting coach transfer of 2.5 hrs. Thomson coach stops half way for a break, would have been better not to. Check-in did not explain where the restaurant and other amenities were. We tried to ask someone in the restaurant if we waited to be seated, or just sat at any table but unfortunately we did not understand the people we spoke to, as they did not speak good english. However, we did work things out for ourselves and enjoyed the food very much throughout our two week stay. There was always something nice to eat inside or from the BBQ. Turkish night was particularly good. Our rooms were nice and the air con worked very well. Entertainment was cheesy but good and the entertainment team work very hard and are good fun! Aqua's beach is nice and we spent most of the time there, as we couldnt get sunbeds at the poolside. These are reserved with towels from about 9am, which was ashame, as we would have liked to be by the pool more often. We went on two trips with Thomson's; the VIP cruise, which is for adults and children over the age of 14. This was a lovely lazy day on a Gillet, sailing to different bays, swimming, and a good lunch. Our teenagers also enjoyed it. We went on the jeep safari which was good fun and involved lots of water fights! We found Icmeler to be scenic and a relatively safe place. Most hotels have security at the entrances. We walked to Marmaris which took about 50 mins, which is rather like Blackpool abroad! Aqua Hotel is not really 5 star, however is a very good 4 star hotel with nice staff and is highly recommended.
