A beachside setting and plenty of restaurants get this hotel off to a good start.
There’s a tranquil feel to this hotel, with gardens that are filled with palm trees. Icmeler’s bars and restaurants are less than 5 minutes’ walk away, and the beach is just outside the back door.
You’ve got a great restaurant choice here, including Turkish and seafood à la carte places. And still on the food front, there are some great touches – like the cooling slices of melon handed out by the pool.

This is our 2nd visit to the wonderful Aqua and the beautiful Icmeler..The hotel is as we remembered it 2 years ago with lots of extra extras which go a long way. Ahmed the restaurant manager was not there previously and has added little touches that go a long way cold towels in the afternoon, smoothie cocktail brought round as you lie on your sunbed, drinks on a trolley to the pool and the beach, even to the point of throwing water into the pool to make sure the kids drank plenty, he runs a tight ship and it shows he has a lot of respect from his staff by always being hands on and not just barking orders ...keep it up Ahmed your doing a fine job ..Ahmed is always asking if all is ok and pleasant smile and hello all the time, himself and his staff are a credit to this hotel.....Muhammed was our waiter and although we could sit anywhere we tended to sit at his section, my Daughter was a little unsure of him at first as he was a little over the top with her but after I explained he was just being friendly she soon warmed to him...Issiac the waiter needs an extra special mention as he is a pure gentleman and a lovely man....now the animation team what superstars you have it was lovely to see spike still there and always a hit with the kids...extras added since we came a few years back was Hope and the lovely Izzy,who always had time for a little chat and always seemed very interested and genuine he is an asset to the team and would be pleased to see him there if we return in the future..... the food is still of high class and always fresh and plentiful, the cleanliness of the hotel is fantastic , an advantage to us was that the hotel was quiet so it was great to get a sunbed by the pool we even had 2 lots in the shade and the sun another special mention goes out to the wonderful George watching out for every ones safety and cleaning up after the less thoughtless people leaving rubbish behind just one thing George stick to what u know best looking after the side of the pool not skipping on the board in the pool game ...1 skip emmmmm ha ha ha ... this year there were less British families and more Turkish families which isn't a problem to me after all we were in Turkey but I was astounded at how rude they were not only to me and other guests but to the extremely very hard working staff an excuse me or please and thank You costs nothing...whist we were there I filled in a questionnaire and I was pleased to see they read it and corrected the small gripes I had about the room....A put me up bed for my daughter was changed to a proper bed and the mini bar was filled for 3 people and not just 1......we payed a visit to the Chef for an amazing meal the best steak iv ever had...I got my bags from the charming man Duygu shop who managed to persuade me to buy 5 for myself...also the lovely lady in the Melisa watch shop who sorted my 3 watches out for a few penny's...another mention has to go to the Aqua hairdressers ,I'm not one for going to have my hair done whilst I'm away but on the last day myself and my daughter went and had a Keratin treatment on our hairs, Havva worked her magic and Mesut kept us entertained I can recommend this as my hair felt lovely after the sun and pool took all the moisture out.....few improvements could be made but very small gripes a flat screened TV not the big clumpy thing with a few more British programs on for the kids ( I know you don't come away to watch TV but nice to have whilst getting ready) and better lighting especially for the ladies. the free pool/beach towels,safe,air con,mini bar,toiletries,slippers,robes,wifi keep it a 5 *...unfortunately we have priced up for next year and at the moment it is coming in Â£500 more expensive so we will have to check closer the time for the cost to see if we will be returning for yet another visit to the truly wonderful Hotel x xMore
Our family had the most amazing time at hotel aqua from the 25th July - 6th August. They couldn't do enough for you, after reading such good reviews we all had high expectations and they 100% lived up to the high standard. We went to a 5* hotel last year in Egypt, but it was nothing like this. The beach is a two minute walk away, right on the same street at shops, bars and restaurants and there is so much to do. Depending on what type of person you are, you can either sit and relax or do things such as watersports, boat trips etc. We did the mable watersports and paragliding and it was amazing! The food was exceptional, so much variety and something for everyone, plus unlimited ice cream and bottled water which we didnt get last year in Egypt. Just a whole other level and by far the best hotel we have ever been to, we are already looking at booking for next year. The staff are wonderful room is cleaned thoroughly everyday, sheets changed and complimentary drinks and chocolate in the mini fridge that gets restocked everyday. A special shout out to Sherif on the beach who sorted us beds and water sports, who works day in day out walking up and down the beach all day to make sure everyone is enjoying their holiday. Also Muhammed in the restaurant who served us breakfast and dinner every day, couldn't do enough for us. All staff had could speak good English and were always very polite wherever you were in the hotel. Food at lunchtime was lovely too. Burgers, pizzas, flatbread, all cooked fresh. We are really looking forward to returning to the hotel next year as it's by far the best one we've been to and suitable for all ages as there is always something to do. Thankyou Hotel Aqua for making our holiday so spectacular. XMore
What a delightful stay we had at this hotel. The service was some of the best we have ever experienced. The staff could not do enough for you. Especially recommend Ugur and Sihmus. The restaurant and bar Manager Ahmed was a real hands on person. He was continually around ensuring that everything was kept immaculate. His staff seemed to have a lot of respect for him. The animation team of youngsters had time for everyone. They even walked along the beach each morning saying good morning to all. As we visited for a fortnight in May we found the food on the first week was much less than the second when it filled up. Then the. choice was superb with plenty of fresh salads. There was also a grill outside and a cafeteria with s choice of burgers, wraps, chips etc. Then if you were still hungry there was a waffle and ice cream bar. The lounge area in reception where there was a bar was a relaxing area before and after dinner. You also have a complimentary a la carte waiter served meal once a week. The Italian was delicious. The gardens are beautiful and there is a choice of an outdoor pool, indoor pool or supervised private beach area. The beach area had good sun beds and drinks were brought to beach throughout day. Also there is a beautiful spa on site. The town of Iclemer is so pretty and delightful to walk around. We loved the evening entertainment. We are so impressed that we returned home and booked again for next May bringing our close friends with us. Looking forward to returning.More

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday. We went as a family ages ranged between 15 - 70 and everyone had an amazing time. The hotel is spotlessly clean and very modern. All the staff are a credit to the hotel. They make you feel so welcome and at home. You were made to feel like they have known you all your life and that nothing was to much trouble. We felt safe, secure and completely relaxed throughout the whole holiday. The food was outstanding and not repetitive. The animation team were extremely friendly and caring towards you. If you wanted to join in with the activities you were welcomed but you were not pressured by them to take part ( unlike in other hotels I have been to in the past). I have to give a special mention to Muhammed ( restaurant waiter), Spike and Hope (animation team) and Gonca (waitress) who made our stay just that extra special. Icmeler is beautiful and the residents are extremely friendly and welcoming . We can not wait to return to Hotel Aqua in 2017. Thank you Hotel Aqua for making this holiday one we will never forget. See you in 2017.More
This is our second visit to this excellent hotel. We are always concerned when returning to a hotel that things will have changed and will not be as good as a previous visit. No need to worry at the Hotel Aqua, as everything was just as perfect as before. The staff in all departments cannot do enough for you. They are genuinely happy in their work and always smiling. The Aqua had received some cosmetic refreshment during the winter. Our room, a Grand Suite was on the top floor and offered outstanding panoramic views of the bay and surrounding hills. It was really great to see familiar faces from last year particularly Ertan at Palm Bar and the young ladies in the Lobby Bar. Special mention to Ahmet, Restuarant Manager and to the Animation Team; Mehmet, aka Spike, Mr. Tibet, Izzy, Jansu and the irrepressible Hope whose enthusiasm was infectious and energy boundless. A genuine human being. Thanks too to Tolga at Reception for all he did with his team to make this years stay even better than last years. Hotel Aqua is quite simply the best hotel in Icmeler and we will return June/July 2017. Thank you to everyone. We miss you already.More
