Good location, friendly staff , nice aqua park( aqua toy) free on Monday & Thur for hotel guests .Private beach and swimming pool is good. Rooms need to be remodeled and renewed .I believe that It has been consumed and need to be renewed. Also , any additional person (child &adult) to 2 person, you will be charged for it, the good thing , they have mentioned that clearly in their website and Only two bottle of water is provided complementary for tea or coffee. There is a balcony and you can smoke their .

I stayed this hotel at June 2019 unfortunately this hotel managament has taken extreme cost cutting measures which are damaging their reputation as once they were one of Cesme's finest. Good beach, good mini club, poor cafe service, a lot of unexperienced staff, poor room service.

We paid 1770 tl for two days without breakfast. Which means just for sleeping. I believe this is very expensive. Rooms are comfortable, but even first bottle of water is not complimentary. Beach is very good, was not crowded and was clean. Beer and big water is not so expensive. They have a small gym but a good spa.

I have stayed in many hotels here in cesme and decided to give this one a try after reading the positive reviews... well i will say that my expectation were not extremely high but standard... the rooms are a bit old and flooring is carpeted which is not ideal for a summer resort...what was extremely disappointing was the noise from the air conditioning in the room... i was ok with it the night i checked in and agreed to deal with it when i woke up. Well i could sleep, watch the video... when i escalated this to the front desk the response was the system was old and most room have the same noise???? She did agreed to change my room but said it would be a down grafe since the hotel was full and the noise would be the same... nothing else???? Where is the customer service and experience for no sleep ... listen for yourself!

After spending the last four summers at this magic place we think it is time to share some of our view with other travelers. First of all, the hotel might have one Cesme areas best locations. It has has great turquoise sea with a little north wind which always keeps you chill in the middle of hot summer. The hotel is also located in the middle between Alacati and Cesme. Both places have a lot to offer when it comes to local food and (fine) dining. We also have to tell about the great staff working at the hotel. Everyone is smiling and showing great hospitality. This place is a no-brainer if you want to realax with your family and friends.

We had a wonderful visit to Ilica Hotel and this was our 3rd time at this resort. We stayed at the bungalows. Hotel decided to change the chaise mats, which was timely. They are also getting rid of the beach cabanas, which was obstructing the view from the beach in front of the bungalows. We thank you for the housekeeping staff as they were great making us feel home. There needs to be some fish options for lunch. Dinners were tasty but food needs to be served warmer. Perhaps less variety better quality. Hotel has a great initiative for not wasting food. We appreciated the awareness as people tend to go crazy with open buffet. Hotel needs to do a better job to control the black flies by the cold food bar. Perhaps install fly zappers or sonic wave machines to keep the flies away. They are annoying. As to bungalows they are bit dated. We would want to see at least the bathrooms to be renovated. Beds are very comfortable and the A/C works great. Overall, it is good quality for your buck and we will be back next year.

Nice and clean new resort. The food was ok but I was expecting at least one kind of fish in the beach grill bar. The breakfast was generous and delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful even though most of them didn't speak any english the communication was good. The beach and pools area were great and the mini club was good. The only annoying thing were the 2 lifts in the main building as were so slow and always crowded and obviously not enough for such big hotel and quite often there were queues to go in.

Pros: +beach +hospitality +rooms( has many options) +location +cleaning +services +good services for kids +aquapark +parking +half board and bed&breakfest options Cons: - foods are sometimes not fresh and will serve 2 times.

We spent 3 nights and changed 4 rooms in 2 days due to; - There was something wrong with the lock of the bathroom and our daughter was locked in for a while up until she managed to free herself. - The room was very small for a 3rd bed so we demanded a new room - The manager was a nice person as all the crew (everybody was polite) and gave us a new room which was exactly the same size as the previous. But we didnot want to ruin our stay and accepted the offer. Then i checked the balkony and it was very dirty and we found hair in the bath-tub. Apparently they gave us the room without cleaning. After an hour of wait we reentered the room and this time balcony was clean but the hair was still in the bath-tub. We were late for our night so we said we accept the room as it is but the day after we needed a really clean and bigger room. (We checked in at 11:00 and returned at 17:00 and our luggage was still in the lobby, no 3rd bed, no extra pillows and no iron which i requested both a few days before our arrival and at 11 when we arrived) - the 1st extra bed was broken and i nearly ruined my dress with the 1st iron they brought. - the next day they upgraded us to a much bigger family room. This time with a poorly working aircondition. Again after several requests and technique service visits they moved us to our final destination - same size family room. All team are nice and polite but they are incapable of solving problems fast. We were a group of friends and nearly all our friends complained from something. Breakfast fair - decent options aside from the first morning i couldnot find something to drink other then tea or coffee- one would think a selection of herbal tea should be provided. And omelette not available on first day. Spa- we used spa on our last day to take a shower after check out and to our surprize the showers were open, so impossible to take a decent shower. The beach very comfortable but Ilıca sea is very wavy and not pleasant to swim.

Stayed here for two nights. Enjoyed they stay in general but meals could have had a bit more variety. Some specialities finish in the first five minutes so if you're not quick you miss out. Great place to unwind and relax, rooms were great and would definitely recommend!
