“You will not be disappointed”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

Returned on19/7 a week at alka was very relaxing, few minor issues were quickly resolved staff are friendly and attentive. I was expecting to climb mount Everest after reading the reviews, but honestly only the seriously unfit or infirm would struggle to reach the appartments from what is only a few mins walk from all the bars shops and eateries.

The weather was extremely hot over 40degrees most days so paying the small fee for air con is a must! The Aquapark was great fun. Loads of water sports on the beach.

If you have never been to gumbet before I must say the immediate bars and Restaurants were pricey - on a par with home, the further you go out the cheaper it becomes. Best meal of the week was at Angel which is right on the beach at the end perfect breeze off the sea and don't forget to feed the fish. Enjoy

Absolutely fantastic, the people who work there are great, the cleaners are great, the pool is great, the whole atmosphere is great and the rooms are GREAT. I had the best week ever, I can't recommend this place enough!!! We will most DEFINITELY be back there next year!!! There is a bit of a hill to get to it but you get used to it, and you can use the steps! I would do anything to get to climb that hill again this year!!

Im 14 the now , 13 when i was in gumbet(clubalka) at the start of june 2011 :XX , ok so first off all me and my sisters (8&5) were the only kids there, i mean seriously the place was empty. Its up the top of a big hill but at the bottom is were all the resturants are, and further up is where the giftshops and clubs are etc etc. In gumbet they would prob sell alchohol to a ten year old , like they dont care.? Im 14 they dont ask for id or nothing:$ i could of walked into a club and go in like that. Sooo.........

theres a water park, the bus leaves once a day for it that was quite busy. Dont book any of these trips via thomson theres about 10 travel agents all cheap prices and if you start talking to them they literally half the prices:)) The boat trip was amazing, they stopped at 5 different places one of them you could swim in a cave they stopped in the middle of the sea and everyone jumped in the sea it was sucha good day they were playing hundreds of summer music and it was the best:**


**** at the waterpark or the beach, loads of people from the restaurants come up to you and give you a card that says like: free cocktail for each guest,,, free main meal.......
some gave you a free taxi ride to the restaurant....

Even no the currency for turkey is lira all the restaurants prefer euro so its best to take both.


All the clothes shop/giftshops sell like fake pauls boutique g-star calvin klein etcetc<3

the most amazing restaurent was CHICOS its near club alka, its the best for bantur!
all the boys do a show with dancing and it goes on for a few hours and they get everyone up dancing i got asked about twenty times ha .....

Ali's fun pub near the beach is quite but shaun who stands outside to get people in is a baaabe he looks like peter andre haaaaa:))

They love kids its actually quite pervey:))? and tbh any womans like they flirt like mad with 80 year old grannys ha:$$

I have stayed at this hotel
Maybe 5-6 times in the last 12 years by choice of my parents. I liked the location with all the restaurants and bars etc. the hill was a nightmare but you can go the long way round by the windmill which is fine. Nusret who I think now calls himself nostress was an absolute sleaze bag - this being when I was actually 13 at the time. Nice. Not nice memories of this hotel if I'm honest. Anyway that aside the rooms were fine, had all u need really. Nice lunch if ur staying at the pool all day. If I had the choice of going to gumbet again I wouldn't choose this hotel but everyone is different

My parents were generous enough to take me and my siblings on holiday to Turkey. We were all excited as we had not been away together in years. What we found when we arrived was a dire situation. Gumbet is a mess. All of us like a drink but when confronted with mere kids being sick in the street or barmen/shopkeepers hounding you in the street it is not a holiday.
Club alka itself was no better. We arrived in the night and were made to walk down countless staircases in the dark with no lighting. Throughout the holiday, these stairs and the hill the apartments were set on became a pain for my elderly parents. We were shown to our room which was filthy with no balcony and the noise from the surrounding area was deafening. If you are staying in gumbet dont expect to fall asleep till four in the morning when the cheesy disco tunes and 'club classics' are turned off. As we woke up the next day we were able to see our situation more clearly. We had not been put within the complex but were shoved into the so called room underneath the pool. The 'balcony' was a stairwell between our room and my parents room, an accident waiting to happen. There was no sunlight and we were essentially at the back of the complex looking out on to an alleyway of teenagers being sick or groping eachother. When we complained we were told there were no other rooms available and given no help whatsoever. The owner Hassan was more sleazy than accomodating. I would say do not go for you may well be given this room or another of the dirty rooms here. We had no hot water and we would rather have camped in a tent.
If you have already had the misfortune of booking this holiday, do your utmost to change it. If that isnt possible, here are a few tips...
1. Dont use the shop/bar there. They do not give you change, only 'beads' which you have to spend there.
2. Take care not to fall into the trap of Thompson, the so called reps and holiday customer service stinks.
3. Get out of gumbet. If you get the bus up to Bitez each day you will have a much more pleasant stay. Peaceful, pretty and no sleazy men in sight.
4. Make a trip to Bodrum - just do your best to get out of there.

Came For 2Weeks 6th June -22nd June 2011. Not 1st time in Gumbet But 1st at Club Alka... Hotel Is Lovely, & Was Quite Quiet In June, Hardly Anyone There, Views Were spectacular, Rooms Okay, Massive Fridge & Balconies. The Hill Is Steep but you get used to it, & gumbet is too nice to fault it by one hill! Didn't Really speak to staff as two teenage girls we were always out but when we did they were friendly :) We Did Have problems & spoke with Aiden the rep who is a lovely guy :) & he sorted them out. We Recommend To others but personally we wouldn't stay here again, but Defo back to Turkey! We have since returned in September 2011 & recently returned from an amazing week in Gumbet ... Roll on Turkey'12 <3
