Can't wait for the updates. I had such a great time back in May and seems like ages ago now. I think I need to book for next year already. Have a wonderful time. Say hi to Josh (Tahsin) at Lighthouse from me, Sam.

Merhaba greetings from beautiful Icmeler day 3 of our latest adventure in Icmeler currently sat in sport inn having a well earned drink nice and cool tonight with a gentle breeze,went for a pedicure yesterday at Istanbul well worth the £10 went to holiday bar with friends last night to celebrate our friend Ken’s 60th birthday had a tremendous night food was terrific as always finished off in oscars for a night cap eventually rolled into bed early hours.
Spent the day lounging around the pool been really hot today booked our first boat trip on Erin1 for Friday ,ate at champagne golden moon really nice meal changed money tonight rate 635.
The resort is certainly more busy than last previous years in fact the golden moon was full and were turning people away .
Due to the excellent exchange rate finding it really good value for food and drink also when shopping.
Will sign off for now as we going to aid the Turkish economy by drinking copious amounts of beer & gin as always any questions feel free to ask

have a great holiday - resort is definitely busier. We were there in June and already missing being there. Booked flights for next year but having difficulty booking hotel via sunshine holidays, the hotel is on love holidays but have used sunshine for the last 4 visits and always been good service for booking and transfers.
we visited the K corner bar/café when we were there and it was nice sitting and watching the people go by.
sadly we wont be going back in Sept this year as away in November on a cruise but cant wait to be back in May 2019.

Ate at lighthouse tonight,food excellent as usual rate in resort today has jumped to 645.

Merhaba from a hot Icmeler day 13 currently sat in holiday bar just watched the Everton game, we both had the Adana kebab must say it is the best one we’ve had.Ate in wine house last night had a fantastic meal well worth a visit.
Our friends from Newcastle ken Maureen Michelle & Dave went home on Thursday we spent some wonderful evenings & into the early hours with them and hope to see them again next year.our friends Paula & Colin arrived late last night and we met them for a late late late night in the kactus bar.
Can’t be out too late tonight as we back on the Eren1 again tomorrow with Paula & Colin.
You are probably all aware of the massive rate rise we got 7.50 last night a lot of places seem to be giving 7.30 as they are hedging their bets as they are worried what will happen when the money markets open on Monday.
Will sign off for now as we are going to meet friends at oscars bar before we retire for an early night,well not too early anyway.
As usual any questions don’t hesitate to ask?
Cheers Linda & Ian (dodge).

Merhaba from a hot Icmeler !
Day 16 of our 21 currently sat in kactus bar there has been a lot of posting about the rate it was 8.30 yesterday and has currently dropped to 8.00 give or take a few lira depending on where you exchange this makes the resort tremendous value for money.
Since we last posted we have ate in wine house absolutely fantastic the lighthouse fantastic too and tonight champagne golden moon which again was fantastic.
Spent the last two days just lazing around the pool, done a bit of clothes shopping in Mr cheaps he is like Arkwright out of open all hours won’t let you leave shop without buying anything but he is funny with it though and his prices are good.
We are on our 5th boat trip tomorrow again on Eren1.
Resort is much busier than we have seen in the last 6/7 years and obviously anyone who has come is getting tremendous value for money.
We will sign off for now as always any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
Cheers Linda & Ian (dodge)

Well we are now home didn't get a chance to post from the resort changed money on our last night rate was 7.30 spent our last evening in the Lighthouse and then went to the Kaktus for a few drinks we always arrange a private transfer back to Dalaman during which we saw that there had been a road accident just past the sentido sea star involving several cars including a jeep safari land rover which was on its side there was a large number of police, ambulances and fire engines in attendance do hope no one was seriously hurt the rest of the journey was uneventful the flight was on time and we landed early we walked into our house at six oclock . The washing machine has been working overtime today luckily the weather has been good . We have had a amazing holiday as Icmeler for us is still a great place to holiday there has been some improvements to the infrastructure ie new pavements lighting and they have spruced the resort up we are hoping to return next year for 3 or 4 weeks .Due to the weak Lira this holiday has been tremendous value for money and the resort has been the most busy we have seen for several years We have been looking for flights but at present they are very expensive with luck when a few more carriers release there flights they may be a bit cheaper well will sign off as the washing machine has just finished . To anyone about to go on their holidays whatever the destination I hope you have a good a holiday as we have had
