I read the reviews after I had booked I did not know about this site.
There was never any hot water at any point in two weeks. The staff were only happy when you spent your money in the bar.
Guess where I found this site the Esenkoy Manager was always reading the reviews.

The staff at the hotel were incredibly friendly and did everything they could to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. The hotel was generally in a good condition, although basic, and the food was great. We stayed on a Bed and Breakfast basis so usually just had breakfast at the hotel, which was light but lovely. On several occasions we also chose to have our evening meal at the hotel, and the food was consistently of a good standard.
The room we stayed in was basic but clean and had everything we needed - we spent most of the day either on the beach or by the hotel pool (which is medium-sized and very clean). The room had a fantastic balcony that wrapped around two sides of the room - great for sitting out on in the evenings. The bathroom was clean and we didn't have any problems with the water.
The location of the hotel was fantastic - towards the quieter side of Icmeler so we weren't disturbed by loads of bars and music. The music at the hotel bar was always turned off at midnight which was great too. The beach was a couple of minutes walk away, as was the canal (where the restaurants and bars are).

The rooms were basic but clean, however the hotel overall was a bit grubby and the carpets were heavily soiled.
The pool is trhat what you would call it a postage stamp was murky and there was scum around the edges. All the tiles were chipped and as we had a small child had to use the pool at another location.
There was a couple of sun beds around the pool but they were all in the shade and had seen better days.
The family at the hotel were friends, but could be a nbbit overpowering and were your best friend as long as you were spending your money at their bar.
On the basis of the quality of this hotel we gladly chaged to an alternative hotel.
Think twice about going to this hotel if you expect something more.

The food was good, an excellent Turkish breakfast and three courses every evening, very well cooked.
The location was just right, near the centre but down a quiet street and not far from the beach.
The hotel staff were wonderful, they made you feel at home and couldn't do enough for you. They work very hard to make your holiday special.

The road is quiet at night but near to all the action. Our first time in Turkey, we had no expectations but had a fantastic holiday.
This is a small, family run Hotel, basic but spotlessly clean and with excellent Turkish breakfasts and 3 course evening meals, with a small pool and bar area. The staff must be the best ever, couldn't do enough for us, we had a brilliant laugh with crazy Ronaldo the bar manager, Engin the owner, ( try his wife Ali's hand made jewellery shop in town) Camel and the Chef!.
The other guests were all returners, one couple had been going 6 years running, and we have all arranged to go back next year!
Very child friendly, our two (10 and 11) had a great time, Engin's mother baked a birthday cake for my son who had his birthday whilst we were there.
All in all a cracking little place, couldnt ask for anything more really. Can't understand the bad reviews on this site, surely guests wouldn't go back year after year if it's as bad as some people are making out.
And how can you complain about Turkish breakfast being served in a Turkish Hotel?! Admittedly there was no choice of evening meal but the standard of cooking was much higher than we expected it to be and was delicious and different every night.
Perhaps those who complained expected fry-ups for breakfast and burgers for dinner? As for the staff being sleazy, our experiences couldnt be more different, Turkish people on the whole are friendly to everyone, maybe this friendliness was misinterpreted by some as something else, but my family found them to be very genuine people, and we would heartily recommend this place to anyone.

Then it only got better we were treated superb with genuine kindness and engin and ronaldo couldnt do enough for us.
The hotel was clean and basic the meals were well cooked and tasty and I enjoyed everything about our stay.
Actually loved it that much the girls have just been again and we are planning to go back next year having already booked the rooms.
Couldn't have wished for nicer people. No touble with room, meals, service, or anything else you can think of cant wait to go back.

We decided to give it a try this is the worst holiday I have ever had in seventeen visits to Turkey the family were rude the meals were the worst I have ever had in my life. In two weeks never any hot water.
On a night time we liked to go to different bars when we returned to the hotel it was asked by the staff every night why we went out they said we should spend our money in the Esenkoy I said I could spend my money where I wanted we would never go back to the Esenkoy. In future I will take notice off the reviews
