“nice for price”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

Having come back from here last week i thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. The rooms are very spacious and cleaned everyday, the pool is well maintained and heated but loses the sun after 4pm, the staff are lovely but not very good with remembering the food orders. The pool bar/restaurant doesnt accept payment and its all put on a card which can be paid for at reception, very handy not having cash at the pool. The only downside is the beds are very hard. Overall would recommend for a pleasant stay.

Had a wonderful holiday in Turkey. I wasn't expecting much when I booked this apart hotel having read the trip advisor reviews, however we were pleasantly surprised. Staff were extremely nice and very efficient. The cleaning staff were fantastic- the place was spotless. Clean towels and sheets every day- superb! We were on a half board basis and we were very happy with the food. Breakfast was basic but sufficient- breads, cheese and meat selection, fruit and freshly made omelettes.( Bring your own tea bags if you are fond of your cup of tea!). The dinner in the evening was delicious- 3 courses- no choices (which we were a bit worried about) but we ate all 3 every night with very little left on our plates, with such dishes as fresh sea bass, roast chicken, barbecue feast night- fantastic food.
They had entertainment a few evenings which was quite good. Fire eaters, belly dancing, magic show- all quite entertaining.
They had free wifi in the lounge and around the pool area which was a big bonus.
Location was ideal- the bus for centrum stops right outside and the beach is a five minute walk. So handy!
I will definitely be returning to the Golden Gate and hope to have another great week there!

the hotel looked great on arrival, very clean, large pool area and a lovely little poolside bar what more do you want on holidays. the rooms were basic, but we didn't expect much more as it was a last min booking and we got it for a very reasonable price, as long as we had a bed, bathroom and fridge we were happy.
the maids were great, they always came to clean our room everyday, they had very little english but always done what we asked of them once they understood, they were very polite, always smiling and saying hello.
the bar staff were all very friendly on the 1st week and loved having fun at the pool with all the guests. at night the head barman wasnt as friendly as he was too busy flirting with the new female guests and didn't really have time for the people were not single.
the staff regularly passed free shots round all the guests during the day and at night which was great. one thing we did notice, during our second week was that the free shots were no longer being passed out. the same 4 girls sat at the bar every night without buying drinks got all the shots as long as they were willing to flirt with the creepy head bar man (pinocchio).

the first 11 days of our holiday were great and we would have had no problem returning here until the beefed up hot headed security guard showed us we were not safe in the hotel.

unfortunately what started off as a great holiday quickly turned into a terrible experience after being threatened by the security guard at the hotel, who is employed to keep guests safe not make their holiday a living hell! we returned to the hotel every night after dinner to have a few drinks at the bar with the other guests we had met. one night we returned after being in town about 1am, as the bar was still open we decided to stay for a drink. the 4 of us all ordered drinks and sat chatting to the only barman on ismail. while chatting a younger guest who we had met by the pool arrived home with his parents and shouted goodnight to us so we all responded and waved up to him.
after doing this the hot headed security guard came marching out of reception and started shouting BED go to BED, BAR is CLOSED. it was only after 1am and we had sat at the bar until after 3am other nights with out a problem so we refused to to to bed. we told him we had only came to the bar and bought the drinks so we were going nowhere until the drinks were finished. he then tried to grab the drinks off us which was totally out of order as these drinks were bought before the bar closed and the barman was still in the bar and didnt have a problem with us being there. the hot head then reached for one of the pints but was stopped by my boyfriend. i told the security guard to stop being so rude and asked his problem? he then grabbed my boyfriend by both wrists and started shouting in his face. after we got him away from my boyfriend he grabbed a full pint and as he was told to put it down he threw the pint glass and all at myself! the pint glass smashed all over the floor which was surrounding the pool area. i was drenched and a little scared as the pint glass had only missed me by a little. this was totally out of order and my boyfriend and the security man go into a row over this, he was clearly getting aggressive and myself and another female guest were getting quite intimidated. at this point another guest we had met herd the commotion and came running down from his room to see what the problem was. the security guard backed off when he came down and continued to throw out the other three drinks that we had purchased. we told him he was totally out of order and we would be reporting him to the rep asap and he should be saked as he clearly wasnt cut out for working at a hotel as security. this made issues worse and he got more aggressive and started shouting to us do you want a fight? i will fight you if you want to fight?
at this point we all ran to out room in fear that the situation was about to turn more nasty. the barman followed us to out room to apologize for the situation and told us he couldnt do anything to help as he would loose his job. the only reason i stayed the night in the hotel was because my only out was down past the security guard and i was terrified of what would happen if we left the room again. that night i had to barricade up my door with our suitcases and sleep on the floor behind them to ensure the psycho didnt come up to out room to kick off again.

in the morning we went to reception to phone the rep and the receptionist refused to call for us, she was well aware of what had happened and was not willing to help. eventually we got in touch with out rep using another guests phone, she came down within the hour and to our relief we where moved hotels within the hour. ive been to kusadasi 5years in a row now and have never had any bother.
this was such an awful experience and ruined the end of our holiday.
we were advised by other guests that the security guard was put out of the hotel and that he had been sacked, but to our disgust when we were leaving the resort our coach had a pick up at the golden gate and we saw that he was back to work after just 1 night off.
the way the hotel handled this issue is disgusting!! this man should not be aloud near guests! he should be sacked asap.. we were not the only guests he had a run in he man handled two other guests during our stay and also got away with this!! such a shame the owner lets him away with this behaviour as he is ruining what could be a lovely place to stay!!!

My husband and I returned from Turkey yesterday after spending a lovely week in Golden Gate Apartments. The staff were as helpful and friendly as on our previous visit and we were welcomed back with smiles and kind greetings. We love the pool area and the compact ,spotlessly clean apartments. The table tennis table is free to use and is good fun and the bar food is good value and very well presented. The barmen are so nice and friendly to all the customers. They interact with the visitors and seem to be always in good humour.
The location is brilliant. A short walk to Ladies Beach with its lovely beach, shops and restaurants. Or else hop on the very frequent Dolmus bus service to Kusadasi and enjoy all the town has to offer.
The apartments are basic but certainly met our needs. We did not cook any meals but did note that with only one plug-in hot plate it would be virtually impossible to cook a full meal .A kettle and hot plate are all the cooking facilities there are. The beds were comfortable and the apartments were cleaned every day. The complex is spotless.
We really enjoyed our week and hope to return next year for another lovely holiday in Golden Gate Apartments.
The apartments are not 5 star and dont advertise as such. They are good value at 3 star level and give an excellent return for your money.

Stayed in the golden gate july 2013, really ejoyed my stay.
Staff are friendly esp,bar and resuarant staff.

Everything is spotless the rooms are cleaned everyday and the pools are
cleaned everynight.

The food is nice i preferred the breakfast/lunch menu to the dinner menu and it is cheap.
Try the turkish omelette and the brownie.

Location is perfect. Just five minute walk down to the beautiful Ladies beach where our group ate dinner most evenings watching the sunset from our table was amazing.
The Dolmus (local shuttle bus) picks up every five minutes from across the road from the golden gate and drops off in the centre for about 1euro, it runs till 12 o clock,
taxis are expencive enough so i would use the dolmus where possible.

shop around and check prices before buying water park tickets and other activitys from ur holiday rep, they can be extremly expencive. A quick walk down ladies beach and their are 3 different travel agents selling tickets to all of the kusadasi attractions.

i tryed scuba diving for 30 euro
turkish bath 10euro
boat trip with lunch and free soft drinks 10euro (a must do,:)
Aqua fantasy waterpark 18euro (best water park by far)
Adaland 22euro..

We spent a week in the Golden Gate and found it basic but very clean. That's all most of us want when we go on holiday, a clean bed to sleep in, a clean room to get out of the heat for a little while. The staff were very friendly especially the bar staff. The day and night receptionist were very helpful as were the cleaners. We ate there a few times and found the food to be good and reasonably priced. They only had entertainment on two nights and we didn't know about it until the night before or that morning and we already had something else booked, so that was the only downfall of the hotel. It's only a short walk to Ladies Beach and the bus is directly across the road to take you into town. We would definitely stay there again.
