AN AWESOME PLACE TO STAY
"I have just been to Greenworld with 43 other people, they have been before but it was my first time with my 2 sons, a perfect place to stay we had a room at the front of the hotel which was perfect as i love my sleep! music plays most of the day with a 2 hour break in the afternoon. Food is lovely, staff are fablous fun and always up for a laugh. already booked for October this year too :-)"

Ladies marred or single the male staff are after you welcome to greenworld a new and sexy place to have your affairs and it stays i turkey a 100% sexy fun fun fun place to stay
"The worst thing about greenworld is the constant repeated loud music played at the pool bar from 9.30am to 1.00 in the morning with songs with the f word being played in front of children.the entertainment is for the ladies the passion from the bar staff to entice the ladies is intense and you feel as if you have encroached on a private party and i dare you to ask for a record or the music to be turned down well looks will kill. You are by the pool you might be sun bathing or reading on your tablet with your drink by your side and BANG you get hit with a football knocking everything over or sprayed by the staff with water to ask if you want to play water polo.you cant listen to your own music on your ipod because it is drowned out by the loud music. with large families who send the kids out to put towels out even when they go on trips and take over the pool and take great pleasure in making you move away and we was at greenworld when Scotland and England schools had not broken up the staff have no control over the running of the pool and allow large groups to do as they want after all they spend more than you The restaurant large groups get preference over couples and the service is the worst i have ever had go to Icmeler or Marmaris and wow they will cut your food or spoon feed you if you so wish and if you have to wait or your not happy for any reason they will do anything to make you happy so tip of the day EAT OUT at greenworld the breakfast is bad toast is not toast beans are very salty and you are joined for your meal with 10 or more WASPS the staff say they will not sting. as if. so you have to eat inside with no aircon i only had one breakfast.Card payment might be a good thing than carrying cash but if you take my advice pay up each day as you will get other peoples bills and to the reception staff who do not speak English is hard work so you just give up and pay. Night time entertainment is rubbish and kidds shinning laser pens at you the staff all over the ladies and the same music as through the day with the f word in the music they play so you go to bed then at 2 am dogs begin to bark this happens most nights when asked about why this happens the bar staff started laughing, said it is where we take the ladies for sex as we are not allowed back to the appartments.the dogs bark at 6am when they are fed and watered will i go back to turkey 100% YES will i go back to Icmeler 100% YES do i like the turkish people I LOVE THEM will i go to club greenworld never in a month of sundays ...."

quiet location away from the centre
"spent 2 weeks in aug 2011 and was very happy overall , clean all over from reception to rooms . we had a double room with 2 batrooms which was very nice , we were the opposite side to the pool which was good as it was quiet and had a nice breeze from the mountains room no.114. staff were friendly , expect Alkan to sit beside you and sell everything there is to sell , i.e. turkish bath , internet , sauna etc. 1st week wernt to bad to get a sunbed but , 2nd week we had a large group from Wales who made it a competion to get beds early , they seemed to put towels down at 2am (so sorry , the Welsh are the new Germans) they use a card like system for buying food and drinks so keep all reciepts as we had on afew occasions someone putting their bill onto our room no. places to eat , when in Icemeler , head off the main strip as you will find cheaper place to eat , we ate at Champion Bar quite alot as the food was very nice and Mehmet the owner would collect and take you back to the hotel, Dolmus for 4 is about 6tl or taxi 10tl.

"just returned from a 2 week stay at greenworld our 3rd visit in as many years and as usual it has been firstclass again ,this place is ideal for people who prefer a more laid back holiday and people with children ,its an excellent accomodation though a bit of a walk if you want to go into icmeler town ,the dolmus stops outside the apartments and its 1.50lira into icmeler or 2.50 into marmaris the buses are frequent and the drivers will stop wherever you ask them to.back to the apartments ,very well kept ideal rooms very spacious .noticed some people mentioning toilet rolls ? this is self catering therefore you provide your own simple.i cant find a fault with greenworld ,the only thing to beware of s the card system make sure you check reciepts when signing and add up your own reciepts ,one particular person on reception found it amusing to add on extra lira ! apart from this the whole of the staff where brill especially the bar and restaurant staff steve,ozzy ,sinbad nig .ali you made our hol again so thankful to you all and we love you loads see you next time xx ps the weather was excellent a few hours rain in 2 weeks give me turkey anyday :))) "

fantastic holiday at greenworld
"i have just returned from greenworld spent 2wks there with my daughter 16 and my mum, we hada fantastic time there from 1st to 16th july 2010, i have to say it's the best place to stay in icemeler, the whole place is so clean and the staff are excellent, they all workso hard and long hrs to make your stay brilliant, a special thanks to ozzy,ali,lee,steve, and rose...fantastic people made our stay fun with their entertainment all day and night around the pool, which was kept very very clean,ample of room around the pool ,with a slide pool too, childrens pool and jaccuzi's at either end . i wasa bit weary at first , as i had read the reviews about the trouble with wasps, but we didn't find it a problem, they only seem to come out around dusk, and have gone by dark, and if you eatinside the restaurant they don't bother you. so all i can say to you is if you are thinking of going , then go it's great!! . no mosquitos as they fumigate every evening the whole town, the rooms aregreat , we had a 2 bed apartement, each had it's own bathroomoff the bedroom, my mum had her own and so did my daughter and i . we each had our own balcony too. they have a card payment system, were by all your drinks,food,shop,go onto your room number and you pay when you want to...we paid every other day so'snot to get in a mess and keep a tab on our money...it wasn't a problem ,as you get a slip to sign every time you have anything.maids came in every day to clean and change towels, the only thing i didn't like was not being able to put loo roll down the toilet, it goes in a bin next to it , but that was cleared every day to , so wasn't to bad, and alot of countries are the same. now to the weather, well what can i say, ti was very hot 47 degrees every day, and not a cloud in sight, needless to say we all have a brilliant tan! the evenings dropped to around 30 degrees, we had air con which you so need, it's 25 pound a wk but worth every penny.i would recommend this place to everyone, and i am saving up already to go back next year and take friends aswell. go on folks ..go for it you will love it "

Lovely and quiet!
"Greenworld was a lovely place to stay,with all amenities,you didnt even need to leave if you didnt want to.Though the local dolmus made it easy enough to get into town.After changing rooms,our poolside view room was lovely and clean.This would definitely be a hotel we cold go back to...big pool,lots of sunbeds,nice poolside restaurant,and helpful staff.Our only complaint was the entertainment staff kept asking us to joins in the games,though im sure if we had children we would really appreciate this factor.we would recommend greenworld to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday,with panoramic views,in aquiet area...."

Just Go There
"Just returned from Greenworld appts in Ichmeller Turkey. It was our first holiday in Turkey ( 4 adults aged 41 -43 and 4 kids 9 - 14) What a fantastic place. It is siuated in the woods and is only a 10 minute bus ride (40p) into town. I couldnt see the point of going anywhere other than this oasis - which I would descibe as a Turkish Jewel! The rooms are immaculate as well everywhere else in the hotel. The pool area is washed down and pool cleaned every night. The staff put british hotel staff to shame, you want for nothing ( that goes for most of the other restraunts in Ichmeller too!) everyone is so helpful. The owners like to swim and mix with guests and seemed to be giving so much drinks and ice cream away , that their profits took quite a hit while we were there!. The food is good and prices for drinks and food was really good. They work on a card scheme - you put money on a card ( I was a little concerned but this system works!!!) I checked all my recipts and they were spot on. Air Conditioning is Â£25 a week - but you cant leave it on all day, as soon as a door opens it switches off - no matter it soon cools down. We had a room at the front facing the room - It was excellent as the sun didnt penetrate the room as much as poolside view , like our friends. The rooms get cleaned and towels changed daily and the bed linen changed every other day. THERE ARE NO MOZZIES! the area outside on the roads get a blast of insecticide everynight. I am a bug magnet but didnt have a single bite !!! Behind the wall adjacent to th epool were several chickens - the odd cock a doodle doo in the morning about 9 ish was quite funny. Chover and his staff (pronounced Chewy) really looked after the kids and adults with games , nothing over the top - just about right. Water polo , darts etc if you didnt want to join in there was no ill feeling they said thanks and smiled - you didnt feel threatened like some entertainers make you feel when they start nagging - so that was ok. The pool was 1.5 m shallow and 1.5 m deepest ends. There were whirl pools at both ends and a huge kiddies paddling pool at the end. Internet cafe 3TL a half hour, gym, hairdressers, henna tattoos and Turkish baths. Loads and loads of sun loungers and plenty of room alround . 42* hot was the highest and a slight breeze at around 3 oclock every afternoon The only thing that slightly irritated me was the restraunt manager Tim - we ate their regulaurly but those who didnt were snubbed a little when ordering by poolside during the day, they like you to eat there - but hey ho its self catering so its up to us all to decide where we eat! We ate out at Bonjour, Majestic and the lighthouse regulaurly excellent food and Very reasonable prices! There is a lot of touting for restraunt business but just take the menus and say you have eaten. If you want to go to Turkey its got to be Greenworld - 2hr transfer from Dalaman airport in an excellent air condition bus so its a good trip and 4 1/2 flight from the UK."

One of the best.
"This is by far the best apartments i have ever stayed at. The staff, Martin, Daria and the team make you fell at home and nothing is too much trouble for them. The entertainment team of Shuggy and Ozzie are really funny and keep all the kids amused. The reception staff are also very friendly and eager to help. There is a great pool to relax bye with plenty of sunbeds and brolly's, so no need to get up early. The card system operated by the hotel is a breeze, you spend and then you pay your bill at the reception when it suits you. The rooms are spotless and well equiped. Will be going back next year. Ricky, Liz and Adam. From SCOTLAND."

"Stayed at Greenworld for the second year running, once again rooms were spotless and pool area as clean as could be. The only thing stopping a mark of 10/10 was the entertainment being somewhat erratic, the staff tried thier best but was not as good as last year (hello Menic!), All staff very friendly and special mention to Temil, Martin and the girl who did our cleaning Zenyib. Shop on site was a little pricey, better to use Ahmed down the road. If you are thinking about going on a boat trip the best by far is Captain [--], great staff and fantastic value! Don't be put off by the name! "

What a fab holiday
"Me and my children, and brother and sister in law had a fabulous time at Greenworld Apartments. The staff were fantastic, especially with the children. Martin who is one of the waiters is a star, he is really funny and very friendly. He made our holiday. Korai one of the other waiters doesnt speak very good english, but he is lovely and tries his best to communicate with you. He even carries a piece of paper round with him that has turkish translated to english for him. If anyone goes to Greenworld please take Martin some Jack Daniels over, he will pay you for it . They cannot get it in Turkey and he loves it. Will definately go back again next year, cant wait."
