Club Kocer Apartments
35 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Quality Of Rooms Varies Greatly!!
"We booked our holiday on the internet through Thomas Cook and were allocated a 2-4 person apartment, however when the invoice arrived we had been allocated an attic room. When I rang to query this I was told because we has booked late, rooms were allocated due to party size and availability. Fair enough but it would have been nice to have been informed whilst booking online. Be warned!
The attic room was small, basic but ok. Main problem was the 3 flights of steps and no lifts. We paid 110 YTL (about Â£40) for one weeks air con and safety deposit box but both were essential, room got unbearably hot during day. The staff are polite and friendly but not OTT, bear in mind they work long hours for very little pay.
Overall the complex was clean and well kept with a lovely pool area. Didn't try the Aussie bar as it seemed a bit Turkish Butlins family bar, karaoke most nights sounded horrendous but kids would probably love it.
Location of apartments is great, plenty of places to eat and dolmus pass every minute or so...orange to go to Icmeler, orange or turquoise to marina/town centre about 1.75lira anywhere (about 60p). Beach is 2 minutes walk, you do get hassled everywhere you go but it never bothered us as we found Turkish people are very polite and friendly.
The best bar we found was if you walk out of reception and cross the main road, bear left as if to go to the seafront, and down that street there are two bars opposite each other: Black Mirror and Albatross. The guys and atmosphere in there were amazing and really made our holiday. We have never been on holiday and spent the entire week going back to the same bar, but the lads in there were so nice. If you go there say a big hello to Adam, Mitch, Ali, Mehsut, Tiger, Fred and everyone else...you were all an absolute knockout.
Love Suzanne and Lee"

Sorry do not recommend
"What can I say location for beach and restaurants excellent. There pool is clean and big.
Now the bad bits, we were in block A - floor one, the rooms were filthy, paint work was worn, tired and filthy. Net curtains was missing, sheets on sofa bed had holes in them. The sofa bed was hell on earth to sleep on. Rooms to the front overlook busy road so noisy and unable to leave balcony windows open.
Yes we went in October but doesnt mean we should have substandard accommodation and service.
Reception staff not friendly, asked for room change to back of building on the Tuesday told we could move on the Friday when we asked again they said Saturday as we were leaving monday morning there was no point.
Dont have any prices on there menu at pool side and they are pricey.
Day of welcome meeting we asked for a safe at reception but were told we had to have breakfast before meeting and was really pushy making us go to pool bar first never mind we actually just wanted a safety deposit box lol.
The rep when we told him of our complaints, on arrival there was a bin full of rubbish and mouldy bread which they left for two days even he said through gritted teeth that the hotel owner had been a joy to work with he was literally counting the days till his stint was over!!!!!
So would I recommend, if you want to be beside the beach, not fussy about dirt then go for it. Personally not again in my lifetime Sorry."

loved it all
"club kocer is a well set out hotel. the pool is massive and both times i have been to turkey i stopped at this hotel. the rooms are spacious and clean. the maids clean the rooms everyday and put the towels on the bed with a different patteren everyday. the staff are all friendly and the lads from aussie's bar and aswell gary is like a big brother to me he was always there for me. lopez is a good laugh and knows how to cheer you up. And all the rest of them are friendly. the people from the shop are friendly and helpful. i would advise any one to stop at club kocer and next year i am hoping to stop there again.

wont be back
"We went for a 1 week break and had a terrible time. first the attic room was a mess and the staff was not friendly in any way, But the pool was big compaired to other partments. The reception staff never once smiled or made conversation at all.
Then comes the good bit, while sitting at the pool side whith other friends and small kids there is a comotion in the reception area and then a gun is fired and nobody knew what to do then 2 woman staff start fighting for about 10 mins in full view of every one sitting.
Time to move out. We contacted our rep and within an hour we were in club atrium in armutalan and they were superb. Definately not be back to kocer again."

not suitable for people with disabilities and in need of redecoration.
"please read this review,this hotel is not suitable for anyone with kind of disabilities,when to marmaris in may 2012 with my mum who suffers with her legs.There are no ground floor apartments and no ground floor toilets,so you have to climb stairs or go down stairs to use the toilets that are available.There are only 2 floors but 4 flights of stairs.very basic and in need of decoration."

3rd time here and already booked the 4th best place in marmaris
"Reading the reviews on here they seem to be written by the biggest complainers ever this was my 3rd time staying here and again was nt disappointed. I have been to marmaris 6 times 3 times here and 3 times in the so called 5* all inclusives which are full of god awful food and cheap alcohol
I stayed this time with 3 other friends and we had an attic room which are fine yeah ok 3 flights of stairs but the exercise is brilliant considering how much food we ate. We was told the the maids would only be in our rooms twice in the week but they was in every day and cleaned out glasses, beds and towels also made some towel animals lol. I have read that people are saying things get stolen its simple to me put anything of value in your suitcase and lock it!!! I personally find the maid very trustworthy and on occasion I left my phone out and it was fine.
The bar staff are not hassle at all they are just friendly if you don't want the politeness of some one saying good morning and good night then don't stay. Memet, migo and Alex made out holiday.
The reps at this resort are brilliant we had Pat, Andrea, and Jack who was all brilliant very helpful honest and I didn't feel hounded by them to buy like I have before.
The location is amazing it is in the middle of everything but far enough you don't hear car horns or music all night but close enough you don't need a taxi right next to the Kipa which is a tesco run company
Pool and surrounding is very clean so are rooms I have not a bad word to say at all"

worst hotel in turkey!!!!
"we have just got back from staying in the CLUB KOCER APARTMENT and i would like to advise you all what kind of a hotel this is.Well first of all the hotel was great untill we moved rooms because the one we was staying in was above the bar so it was far to loud for us, We packed up all of our belongs into our suitcases ready to move,We had to wait an hour for our new room key so we went down to the bar, when we were unpacking our stuff in our new room my son had relised his blackberry mobile phone had been stolen out of his suitcase! The only person that had access and had entered our room was the cleaner,When we approched the cleaner she acted as if nothing had happend and she didnt no what we was talking about.We then reported it to the recption staff they was rude and arragant so we informed our club rep (JACK) he was not intrested,told us nothing would happend if we reported it and said it was our word against the cleaners.We was not the only person that this had happend too in the hotel at the same time as us. Apart from all of this Turkey is a brillant place we would go back but i would not reckon mend this hotel to anybody unless you want your belongins stolen. "
