We Love This Place
"A fantastic clean, fun, family run set of apartments (there's only 18). Set in the quiet old village area of Icmeler, but just a few minutes by Dolmens or a 15-20 mins walk to the center of the resort.
We've now been to Eden Garden 3 times and have already booked again for 2014 - the team at Eden Garden are the BEST - nothing's too much trouble and they go out of their way to make your stay memorable."

Simply the Best.....Better than all the rest.
"Once again, another fantastic stay at Eden Gardens. We cannot thank Mario and co enough for making us feel so welcome. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are basic but very comfortable and roomy and above all...spotless! Haydar and wife do a great job of keeping everything clean and tidy.
As i was suffering from a bad back we did not venture out on any trips but divided our time between the hotel pool, which is always spotless by the way and the lovely beach 25 minutes stroll or dolmus bus costing 3tl !.
There are so many fantastic places to eat but we do like going to Cafe Rose in the old village with the laid back feel - sitting amongest the quirky garden and grape vines over head you can enjoy lovely turkish food. On the other hand - if you don,t feel like venturing out then you can rest assured of fantastic food at Eden cooked by Mama. Marios meatballs and one of Mamas pancakes to follow!! Bliss. Roll on next year..our 4th year. Home from home :) "

"When we went to Turkey we stayed in the Eden Garden Apartments. It was our fist time there and we really enjoyed ourselves. The staff are fantastic and you can always laugh and talk to them. Nothing is too much bother for them and when my daughter cut her leg, Mario put antiseptic on and helped her. THe rooms were cleaned reguarly. Momma's pancakes were a special treat and really nice ! It is only 5mins walk from a supermarket. The pool was cleaned regularly too ! Icemeler is a lovely holiday resort and has some lovely resteraunts and bars. It is a family owned apartment and they have some lovely pet dogs who are so sweet ! I would recommend it to people who are looking for a nice relaxing family holiday and who have families. GREAT HOLIDAY:)

"Our second time at Eden Garden and as impressed this year as we were last, hence the reason we are going back again next year .... can't wait! This accomodation is family run and the level of serviced we received was exellent . We were met on arrival (in the wee small hours) by a family member who ensured we had everything we needed and were settled into our rooms. All rooms are pool facing and are kept to a high standard as is the pool and surrounding areas. Excellent food available all day. The location is stunning with pine clad mountains surrounding the apartments. Perfect accomodation for all ages with our parties ages going from 13 - 77, so suits all! If you are looking for a hidden treasure and a relaxing holiday then I would recommend Eden Garden!"

"We rate the Eden Gardens ten out of ten. The apartments are spotlessly clean. The pool area is beautiful. The bar has good selection of drinks and snacks at a very good price. The family who own the Eden Gardens are so friendly, they will make you feel very welcome,one of the guys even looks a little like Ben Shephard!
There's a little bus which stops round the corner and goes into the centre every 15 minutes. It's really cheap. No more than Â£1 each way. Alternatively a taxi will take you into the centre for about Â£3.50.
There's a little supermarket also round the corner which stocks everything you will need.
You won't be disapointed if you book here!

"This is our 8th time in icmeler and the 5th time to eden gardens, just got back this morning and had a fantastic time as usual.
All the staff are very friendly and are very helpfull as nothing is too much bother.They are all welcoming and treat you as part of the family.The main staff are berkay, mario,hayder and momma.
The rooms are spotless and the food is fantastic especially momma's pancakes. The pool and bar area are also clean and tidy and a pleasure to be in. Although these apartment are out of the centre, it is only a 5 minute ride into town on the bus, where everything is at hand.

Fantastic, best holiday ever
"Returned from Eden Garden a week ago. What a wonderful friendly place. This was our 1st time to Turkey, did a last minute booking and was booked to go to a different apartment complex, however, we had been over booked and was sent to Eden Garden. So so glad! We were treated brilliant by all the staff, so friendly and helpful. We arrived at 5.30am and was tired from the journey. We were greeted and our cases were taken up to our room, never experienced that before. Apartments are lovely and clean, they are all pool facing, only 3 stories high with a nice balcony. It is set in a lovely quiet location facing mountains, so beautiful & relaxing. Essentials such as milk, water, juice and loo rolls can be brought from the pool bar. The pool is spotless and is treated every evening, no fighting for sunbeds & the bar is shaded which is nice to relax with a cold beer. Food is wonderful, especially Mama's chocolate & icecream pancakes. Mario and Berkay are really helpful and friendly, make you feel like part of a family. Turkish night was fantastic at Eden Garden, such a laugh, food wonderful. We met some lovely people there, hello to Gemma & Sonny, Marj & Barry, Keith, Yvonne, Rebecca & Erin who all made our holiday that little bit more special. Already booked again for next year, can't wait. Thank you Mario, Berkay and all the family at Eden Garden for a wonderful holiday with some great memories, see you next year. Les & Tim (Rm 16)"

"Second time our family have visited Icmeler, first time staying at Eden Garden Apartments and most definitely won't be the last!! The apartments are situated in the most stunning, tranquil surroundings in the Old Town of Icmeler. The centre of Icmeler is only a short dolmus ride away (less than 5 minutes) and taxis are always readily available just outside the apartments.
All apartments are pool facing and are bright and clean. The pool/area is very clean and of a reasonable size with enough sunbeds for everybody.
There is a bar/restaurant beside the pool where you can get some essentials (water, juice etc) and delicious home-made food at any time night or day.
The apartments are family run and give you a real home from home feel!! If you need anything just ask and the family/staff will go out of their way to accommodate you.
Air conditioning and safety deposit boxes available if required.
I would recommend Eden Garden Apartments to anyone without hesitation. Can't wait 'till our next visit!!!"

Fantastic, friendly apartments!!!!!!
"First time we have been to Turkey, and Eden Garden Apartments made our holiday great. It is a family run place run by Mario, Berkay, Mama and a few others. It is situated just outside the centre of Icmeler in the old town, so it is very quiet, and it only takes about 3 minutes to get to the town centre on the Dolmus bus, which costs 1 Lira per person or about 6-8 Lira in a taxi. The apartments themselves have 18 apartments (I think), the rooms were average size, they were very clean & well maintained, safety deposit boxes & air conditioning are available if needed, there's a decent sized pool for the size of the place, there was never a day where we couldn't get a sunbed, there is a PC for anyone who needs the internet, theres also a pool table, dart board & an X-Box 360 available to use as well, the food from the pool bar was excellent, in fact I thought the food from the pool bar was better than some of the restaurants in the town centre & it was half the price, and you must try Mama's pancakes, they are AMAZING! Entertainment at night was limited to Karaoke, quizes, bingo & Turkish nights, but was very good. Mario & Berkay were always at hand if anything was needed and were always glad to help out. In my opinion the apartments cannot be faulted & if I go back to Icmeler, which I'm pretty sure I will, I will definitely stay here again. Thanks again for a great holiday & hope to see you all again soon.
