The cheap and cheerful Club Aquarium is a small, friendly self-catering hotel with basic rooms located on the outskirts of Icmeler. There are very few leisure facilities on-site so Club Aquarium is probably best suited to holidaymakers who plan to be out and about most of the day and/or night. It is the first of a chain of water-themed resorts; its sister hotel Grand Aquarium is a short drive away.

    Location 8.0 /10

    Located in the tranquil back streets of Icmeler, Club Aquarium is a short drive to Marmaris, and almost 70 miles from Dalaman Airport.

    Accommodation 6.45 /10

    There are 36 rooms at Club Aquarium, all of them sea-facing, standard 1 bedroom apartments with small balconies. The bedroom contains two single beds with old-fashioned floral bed linen and matching headboard and curtains. The décor is very simple: wooden furnishings painted a dark aqua colour and terrazzo floors. The living room meanwhile features the same floral pattern from the armchairs to the curtains. However, there is no sofa or a television, only a couple of armchairs and a small dining area. In between the living room and dining room is an equipped kitchenette and opposite, a small but functional bathroom. Unfortunately, there are fees to use certain things that would normally be free of charge elsewhere; the safety deposit box is charged at £10 per week, and air conditioning at £30 per week (except between 7:00am and 10:00am, and 6:00pm and 9:00pm when it is offered free of charge).

    Overview 7.95 /10

    Club Aquarium consists of a three-storey block of accommodation (whose facade is awash in climbing plants and flowers) that overlooks the pool deck. There are two large swimming pools with a waterslide as well as fountain and bridge features. There is also a separate kids' wading pool. The green turf walkways aren't very pleasant to look at yet they prevent slippery surfaces on and around the pool deck. The pool on the upper terrace is larger and offers great views of the mountains of Icmeler. The novelty is its windows which are built into the walls of the pool, and look out towards the hotel bar and lower terrace, just like an aquarium. On the lower terrace guests will find a well-stocked bar, pool table and mini market. Being a small property, there are no sprawling grounds, only small but well-maintained gardens, and no other leisure facilities apart from those already mentioned. However, guests may use the facilities at the nearby Grand Aquarium.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    Club Aquarium is a self-catering hotel. Breakfast, lunch and dinner (all à la carte) are served daily at the open-air restaurant situated on the lower terrace. Lunch consists of light meals such as sandwiches, salads, pizzas and pasta, while heartier meals like lamb, fish or steak are served at dinner time. Look out for the Sunday evening roast every week (very popular with the mostly British clientele). Guests may also dine at the Grand Aquarium (a free return shuttle is offered) which offers nightly entertainment.

    Beach 6.95 /10

    The beach at Icmeler is 0.75 miles from Club Aquarium (a 15 minute walk). The beach is not only attractive but clean and safe (with 'blue flag' status); it is also made up of a several private beaches where people must rent a sun lounger and parasol. Remember to bring your own beach towel, as the hotel doesn't supply them.
