Got back Tuesday after a weeks stay at the Anil. What a fantastic place it is too. Our holiday didn't start off too well as per our previous review of the Delphi Hotel, Bodrum, but this hotel is in a different class. We were made so welcome on our arrival by Ayla the manageress, who sorted out our rooms for us. We were in the block nearest the pool which we had to walk down a landscaped path to get to which in the evenings had a wonderful smell about it. The rooms themselves were very clean and functional with plenty of sockets so you can have a brew if you take a travel kettle with you. Plenty of sun loungers for sun worshippers and plenty of shade too.
Breakfast is typical continental, boiled eggs, cereals, jams, toast ect, good enough to get you going for the day. The guys in the restaurant (Moses, you were great) were very friendly and made a point of making sure we were ok. It helps if you make an effort to at least learn a few basis sayings like hello, good evening and thank you in Turkish as they do appreciate it. The hotel backs straight onto the beach which also takes you to a path which runs along the sea front to all the other bars, restaurants and hotels (great to walk along and find somewhere different to eat). The bus service to Bodrum (Dolmas) will stop outside the hotel if you put your hand out and will cost only 3 Lira each and takes about 15 mins to get there. Well worth the trip just to walk around the streets by the harbour to get your bits and pieces. There's loads to see and do in Gumbet so please get out and about.
Although the Anil is situated opposite an open air club, do not be put off, the sound proofing in the rooms is excellent and after a few Efee's and vodka sprite, you wont hear it anyway!!!!!. Thanks to Ayle, Moses, Mario the barman (entertained us with he's magic tricks every night) and Mehmet for making our stay such fun. Would definitely stay here again.
