“We love" Summer Gardens"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

we have been staying at Summer Gardens for the last 8yrs & cant believe all the bad reviews that i have been reading.We have always found it to be clean,towels are changed daily,our room was cleaned daily by a lovely married couple that were so sweet & friendly,with flowers left on our beds,all the staff are wonderful & cannot do enough for you & will go out of their way to sort out any problems,not that we ever have any,Yes it,s basic but you get what you pay for if you want the best go 5*,you only shower & sleep there,we think it,s very pretty & the pool is cleaned every day,i know because i always watched them from my balcony whilst eating my breakfast in the mornings,the fully stocked shop is right on hand,the beach just across from the shop,what more can you ask for. We always ask for room 306 our friends like 308,& we are always given them as we like to be upstairs with views across the pool.We have booked again for next year & so have our friends & we cant wait :)

stayed at summer garden apartments 16 September for two weeks and had an amazing time, Staff lovely and helpful, rooms cleaned daily and towels changed every day, bed linen changed every few days. stayed in a self catering apartment which had everything we needed. best value English breakfast in resort only 8 lira. Ideal location beach only 50 metres down a lane across from the hotel. would definitely stay here again,

Room Tip: rooms behind the pool quieter though music turned down at bar at midnight

Just back from a relaxing 10 night stay at the Summer Gardens. Although some reviews are bad we had a great studio room just to side/back of the main pool. Although basic It was cleaned daily with flowers on the bed some days. Front reception staff were always smiling, polite and helpful. Only minutes from the beach and the Bus to Bodrum stops outside!. Would stay again and thank you to all the staff.

Room Tip: We had room 208

For my wife and I this was our fourth holiday in Bitez, but the first time at Summer Gardens and we will definitely be going back. We stayed there from 16th September to 30th. We had a one bedroom apartment situated just off the pool area, 508. The apartment was very clean and well equipped for our needs. Good shower and plenty of hot water, the shower head was very clean, something I always look at. Good pools, beside the main one there is a smaller pool further back in a quite area. Good pool bar and restaurant, prices were good as well. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Linen changed one a week towels nearly every day, and good quality towels compared to other places we have stayed at. As this was near the end of the season there was no entertainment but this did not bother us. One point against the apartment was that it was not secure, the windows would not lock when closed. Very well stocked Supermarket, open to 2am. 100 MTS to the beach, dolmus stops outside the apartments, restaurants very close. Great place to stay for the price.

Room Tip: A void the basement rooms.

Just returned from a wonderful time in bitez and the summer gardens. I was a bit worried about staying there due to the previous reviews but I had nothing to worry about. I was in room 807 at the back of the hotel so there was no noise atall. Room a good size and had everything we needed. My view was of the quiet pool and the pool was very quiet! Cleaned to a high standard everyday and towels were replaced every second day and sometimes everyday. Toilet roll was provided throughout stay-a notice said it was only given when u arrived however this was not the case. The staff were excellent and so accomodating and friendly. They even bought my little girl a present when we were leaving. We were staying self catering and we didnt have dinner in the hotel. We did however have a full English breakfast a lot of mornings and it was the best we had in bitez and was only 8lira. Overall excellent hotel and we would stay here again without a doubt. Thankyou summer gardens.

Returned from Summer Gardens yesterday (28/9), after reading the previous reviews I must admit I was beginning to think I had made a huge mistake in booking these apartments, when we arrived at 5.00am we were told our room number then the guy said if you are not happy with this room come and see me tomorrow and we will move you, the room was fine but I did pay extra for a apartment even though there was only two of us, it was basic but I booked these apartments knowing this, maybe people should read the description before booking, as for loud music round the pool area, you actually struggled to hear it as it was that low, maybe it's different in July/August, the people who were staying there appeared to be couples whose children have now flown the nest so it was nice to have like minded people, Bitez is very quiet, with the only 'bar' being The Temple which had a good Cuban band on twice a week, all in all I don't think I would return to Bitez but that has nothing to do with Summer Gardens it's just that Turkey now seems very expensive so maybe it's time to try somewhere else.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room and got one, I was in 901 overlooking the small pool.

We are a mid 40s couple with grown up kids and now enjoying just the pair of us being able to get away! Paid just less than £1000 for ten days in Bitez and thoroughly enjoyed the stay at Summer Garden. For the price we paid I wasn`t expecting 5* food or accommodation so arrived with no great expectations. Airport transfer not great- sat waiting for 90mins I coach before we set off then had to change into smaller minibus halfway through journey (holiday taxis). I do hate paying the £10 tourist visa tax when you land!! Summer Garden rooms are basic but comfortable with a daily towel change and whilst the food is a bit `samey` every day, there is a decent selection to cater for all tastes. Our room had a great fridge which was fantastic for keeping drinks etc cold and massive improvement on other resorts when fridges barely worked. If you want 5* food and living quarters pay the extra! Hotel staff were great especially the lady on reception. Aircon cost £30 for 10 days which was not bad value and my wife definitely needed- little bit noisy if on overnight but get used to it. Likewise with pillows- not the comfiest but with a bit of banging and pushing they`re not bad. As a Muslim country regular calls to prayer via the loudspeaker systems- the first one is at 5.30am but some distance from hotel and I only picked up on a couple of times as light sleeper. We stayed half board- breakfast and evening meal. For a mere 8TL you can get a great full English instead of the standard cereal, fruit etc. If on HB, make sure the cheeky beggars in the restaurant don't charge you for tea/coffee with your breakfast as they tried with us (12TL) as you get that free as part of your meal package. Bit of face pulling when I pointed this out and although only 4TL extra I had had enough battling with the Turks over trip/market prices so wasn't going to back down. We spent most days on the beach which is literally 30 secs from the hotel entrance- fantastic location! The hotel needs the odd lick of paint here and there but we were happy with what we paid. Temple Bar offer free sunbeds provided you get a couple of drinks from them but to be honest even if you didn't no problem! Sept was great time to go, lovely weather but not intense heat of June which we did last year, few mosquitoes and kids back at school (hurray). All the local bars/restaurants have free wifi connections however the one at Summer Garden very poor and intermittent and no connection whatsoever in our room- nice to keep in touch with friends x Facebook or e-mail etc as no TV in room. There are a few very, very friendly dogs roaming beach and surrounding streets- no probs if a dog lover which we are but local bars don't like them!. We only had warm/hot water x shower for 2 of the 10 days but to be honest it didn`t really effect us as hot from sunbathing all day so no great problem- didn't bother telling reception so cant comment on their response. We did however flag up on feedback sheet. Hotel pool was clean and tidy and plenty of padded sunbeds. Dolmus (bus) goes from right outside hotel to Bodrum every 10mins for 3.50TL (just over a £1!!) which is ridiculously cheap so went there a couple of nights- takes about 30mins. Got boat to KOS one day which was only a tenner each however it isn't a 20mins crossing it is 40 mins- 20 mins until you reach Greek waters. We went on catamaran which was like being on a speed boat. KOS is a lovely town but at least twice as expensive as Turkey. Passport control in and out of the port on Turkish side extremely slow- there is no love lost between these countries so not in a rush to see you depart or return to Turkey. Did a boat trip for a teneer which included a very basic lunch but for the price for a day out cant grumble. Went to Turgatreise market which was good for a few bargains and haggling if that is your sort of thing. Wont teach you how to suck eggs but you have to be quite hardfaced with the traders who try and squeeze every last lira out of you. Went to Gumbet for one night which was enough- definitely aimed at the younger market and thirty years ago I would have loved it! Gumbet is only 5 mins away in taxi (20TL- £6) however buses don't run there so taxi or walk. We ate and drank in a couple of the Betiz restaurants- Mayflower and Manuela very good, cocktails at Vona excellent however avoid Red Dragon cocktails- shocking and could barely taste the alcohol (if any!). We heard great reports x Blue Moon however were also told can be a bit of a wait for food as gets very busy (2 mins from Summer Garden). Temple Bar has evening entertainment including all the live football. Summer Garden has one big screen in bar for football. Return journey fantastic- straight off minibus and to front of queue to book in at Jet2 desk- flight left bang on time. Overall we had a great time and we will definitely return to Betiz, very probably to Summer Garden. Very impressed with Jet2- seats seemed thinner and just as comfortable with extra couple of inches legroom which is priceless on long journey!

Room Tip: There were some basement/dungeon rooms that people didn't like and asked to move- we were right...
