“Great Apartments Great Owner and Staff Perfect Holiday”
Reviewed 7 June 2012
Castle apartments consist of 2 blocks with 11 apartments in each block. Most rooms have 3 balconies and as you are up a slight hill you get wonderful views over Icmeler
There are also 2 swimming pools, decent sized, depth is 1.5 metres and 1.65 metres in the other There is a also a small kiddies pool
The apartments are located in the old village and are located up a slight hill. Some people may find this difficult especially with very young children or people with walking difficulties especially in high summer. Access to the Castle apartments is by climbing 17 stairs which again some may have difficulty with. A walk to the town takes about 10 minutes at a stroll and there are shops and restaurants within about 5 minutes
The apartments are run by the Kale family, Ozkur, his father and Ozkur wife also helps out. Their is an onsite cook who makes delicous meals any time and the food prices are very good. As has been stated by others the chicken casserole is very good as are the garlic mushrooms.
Drinks prices are the same as the town, 6 lira for an Efes 3 lira for a coke and 1 lira for a water.
Rooms may be a bit basic, but are cleaned every day by 2 lovely ladies. towels and bed linen are also changed regularly. New bathroom suite with modern corner shower units have been installed this year,
Rooms have a standard sized fridge with small freezer box inside, 2 rings for a cooker and a kettle. There is a separate bedroom and the other bed setee is in the living area along with the air con unit. Air con is £30 per week and in high season I would imagine that this would be necessary. May and September/ October probably not necessary
There is pressure by any of the staff for you to eat and drink there. They do not harrass you at all to buy drinks and as I have said they do not need to the food is that good
Around the pool area there were 22 sunbeds although there is probably space for around another 10/12. There is no loud music blasting around the pool area all day
There is a small collection of books at the apartments which people have left over the years
The castle apartments have a loyal group of people who visit the place each year. With such friendly and helpful owners this is not surprising as they make you feel right at home.
A couple we had met previously at the aprtments were there again this year. A big thank you to Mike and Audrey from Middlesborough for helping make this a most relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Mike makes a mean chicken curry
1 minor complaint is outwith the control of the owners is that there is a cockerel nearby who makes a helluva racket about 5am every morning
