“Amazing Stay at Filis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2012

Returned this morning from a weeks stay in the Filis Otel and it had to be said my boyfriend and I had an amazing time.
Although the hotel rooms are basic, the hotel is spotlessly clean and our rooms were cleaned every day. The pool area is kept in great condition and not one speck of dirt can be found.
The manager of the hotel and his son Alex were beyond great, the service they provided was top class and we really couldn't fault them. Alex welcomed us to the hotel and made us feel at home straight away. If we ever needed any meals or drinks it was not a problem for Alex to get these. Anything that we asked for within the hotel we got without any fuss.
We got to know Alex really well from sitting around the pool during the day and from drinking in the bar at night, he is a lovely young boy who enjoys to have a laugh and works so hard to provide all customers with the best stay possible.
The hotel is also close to all the restaurants and bars so it is easy to access the nightlife and shops.
We honestly could not fault this hotel at all as it was everything we wanted and more.
Thank you Alex for making our stay enjoyable :)

Returned yesterday from a 10 day stay at this Hotel and after reading previous comments were a little concerned, we didn't need to be.

The hotel is exactly like the pictures and Papa and Alex and their staff could not have done more. Although a basic hotel it is kept very clean and towels and sheets changed regularly, the pool and bar area also kept nice and clean.

It's location is handy for the beach, restaurants, shops etc.

Regarding previous reviews why not use the safety deposit boxes they are only £10 a week, but we left things around in our room and nothing was ever touched.

Look forward to going again and having lovely chats and laughs with Alex and his Father.

Room Tip: During the very hot months I would choose a ground floor room as they have shade from the plants.

The Filis otel was perfect and everything we wanted. Cant believe this is only a 2star hotel. It was in a great location, not far from the bars and restaurants but far enough away that it was quiet. The rooms are basic but have everything you will need. A cleaner will come everyday if you need her and she provides clean towels and bedding. You can get air conditioning for £25 and a safe for 10 for 1 week, We read some previous reviews about the staff being rude- I cannot believe this is true. Both the owner and Alex (the owners son) are extremely kind, polite, friendly and very welcoming. We sat with Alex in the bar area almost every night getting to know him, playing cards and teaching him english.

Would definitely go again!!!!

Room Tip: room 305- large balcony 2nd floor, more shade in the evening

We have sadly just returned home from Gumbet where we stayed at the Filis hotel, this was our second stay at this hotel and having visited Gumbet over a dozen times we have extensive experience of two star Turkey. In our opinion this is one of the best hotels in this price range, the rooms are kept clean,the towels are changed regularly the setting is great with a lovely clean pool and well established plants surounding the area. The owner and staff could not have been more helpfull and Alex went out of his way to asist us, he was polite, attentive and a pleasure to talk to. Our opinion of the hotel and staff was shared with the other guests who we spoke to during our stay and we would certainly recommend this hotel to our friends and any others who are looking for accomodation in Gumbet which is both quiet and relaxing and close to the night life and beach. I have read other negative reviews about this hotel but I am unable to agree with them having had a wonderfull time there, we will be back again in september.

If you visit Gumbet don't miss a visit to Uncle Festers which is about two minutes from the Filis and is the friendliest bar / resturant in town ( see the reviews).

We have just spent a week at the Filis Otel (29th June / 6th July). The place is very basic but it is only a 2 star and is a lot better than many 2 stars in Turkey. The room was cleaned every day with clean towels and fresh bedding. I have read the previous reviews , we have had no problems with Alex being rude at all. In fact once you get to know Alex's sense of humour and he yours he seems to be a very nice person who is willing to have a laugh and doesnt mind you taking the mickey out of him.
There are safes available which cost £10 per week or £15 for 2 weeks. So if you are worrried about previous reviews I suggest you get a safe. We didnt bother and left money on the dressing table and my wifes jewelry and had no problems with anything being stolen.
If you are eating out , we recommend Sandys Bar which is near the new post office. The food is very good and reasonably priced and has the best chips in Gumbet. The Sunday Roast(22 lira 2course with homemade apple pie) is very good value and the steak pie(home made)

Room Tip: Room 305 is surrounded by tree's ,so if you want to be sheltered from the sun this is the room f...

When arriving at the resort it looked lovely, small and quiet and very pretty. But outlet first impressions were soon changed! The hotel staff were very rude and the owners son spent the whole week asking me and my partner for cigerettes. We had money stollen from our room and when comforting them about it the staff mainly the owner of the hotel got very agressive and shouting in my partners face and went to hit him. I would advise people not to waste there money on this hotel, there theifs and very rude! Gumbet itself is a lovely place but the Hotel and staff pretty much ruind our holiday as we went with not a lot of money and after having 400 lira stollen in the space of a week it ruind a lot of our plans. We were put in the wrong room and after having an argument with the hotel staff about my money being taken the cleaner never Enterd my room and left us with dirty sheets and towels for the renaming few days!
