Me and my family and a couple of friends went to stay at the Makumba in July 2009. It was alright, nothing really fancy or anything, i probably could've booked a better hotel. It was quite nice looking, with pretty plants and trees. But the big disappointment of our holiday straight away were the rooms. We booked a family studio including 3 beds and a cot. The room was very squashed and small. It was not pleasant at all! The space between the beds and the wardrobe was unbelievable. It was so small only one person at a time could walk through the space. Another thing about the studio was that the bathroom door glass was a bit see-through so you'd feel very embarassed to have to go with the precaution of someone looking at you. Other than the rooms, the service wasn't very nice either. A male receptionist was very rude to us when he took us to his rooms. The pool was alright but deck chairs were all taken even by 9am! The pool is very cold, and so is the little paddling pool for kids. There are also lots of cats out and about, sleeping on your clothes laid out in the shabby balconies. The location of the hotel is ok aswell, near to nice cheap restaurants. But we took a city bus to Bodrum and Gumbet alot to eat, as they have McDonalds and Burger King. However there are lots of traditional resarants about, i would recommend the Dolphin restaurnt in Bodrum. There are really nice excursions to do, as i would recommend going to the Aquapark, it is well worth a visit! Very fun and colourfull! The beach is near the hotel when you eventually find the small short cut to get there. However don't get your hopes up there as the beach is not what you'd expect. No sand just rocks, and the sea looks really dirty, not many people were swimming in it. The resaurants that surround the beach are really nice though, the people are very friendly and sometimes if you're lucky, give you great offers like free drinks to persuade you to come in. Be sure to look out for 'Sam the man'- as he prefers- he is very friendly and his restaurant is very nice. So overall the hotel wasn't all that i'd expect it to be, but we had fun because of te excersions but dreaded coming back to our beds! Don't book a studio that's all i'd say!
