We had a great stay here in September 2011. We were very lucky with our room - situated on the top floor and with a pool view (and a tiny bit seaview). Nice new furniture in fresh colors and new curtains (extra plus also for extra thick curtains to keep the early sun out)
Newly re-decorated room and newly re-tiled nice (but tiny) bathrooms - only wish they had also replaced the shower "holder" and the showers curtains. The balcony was spacious for two and private and with nice Bouganville "decoration". Quite good soundproofing between the rooms - or maybe we just were lucky with our neighbours :) Great food and service! at both the restaurant/cafe and at the beach bar/cafe! And the staff there were friendly in a "relaxing" way :) Nice garden with great seaview and plenty of sun-beds and great shade from the pepper-threes if needed. Beach tiny and rocky - but nice and sandy once you get in the sea. And just 50 m to the side there is a more sandy and "larger" beach line.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with seaview/pool view! And a top floor room/apartment! :)

This is a nice hotel and it's well situated. The hotel has a cosy feel to it and never felt busy as there is a pool area, a garden area and a little beach.

We were a party of 4 that arrived on 5 August and were later joined by 6 more family and friends. on August 12. As we were such a large group we could easily see that the rooms do vary a great deal. Some of them are very small and some large and airy. The views did vary as well but as the hotel is well situated, the views rang from nice to lovely. As you have both a pool and the sea on site, you have the best of both worlds. The beach is however tiny and is literally only one sunbed wide which meant that we never acually stayed on the beach but could walk down from the pool in 2 mins to take a salty dip!

The hotels situation provides peace and quiet will no disturbances from traffic or bars, yet it is very close to everything. The centre of Gümbet is just a 10 min walk away and the local buses and taxi rank are just at the top of the road (3 mins).

The restaurant staff are lovely, and very proffesional and not 2over the top" as sometimes can be experienced in Turkey.. The food at the hotel was very good and reasonably priced. This meant that most days we ate lunch at the hotel. We even tried a few speciality dishes in the evening and were never disappointed.

Best cocktails were at Zetas restaurant on the beach front (happy hour = half price between 10pm - 4 am). We did try the food at Zetas one evening hoping that it would match the excellent cocktails, but unfortunately although the food was fine, it wasnt good enough to want to go back again for dinner.

The beds are unusually hard but this wasnt too much of a problem for any of us. The AC has to be paid for at the hotel, ca 10 Tlurkish lira per day.

Its a lot breezier in Gümbet compared to other parts of the coast we have been to in Turkey. This is nice but be warned dont forget your sunfactor, the breeze makes the heat and sun a little deceptive.

Hate to add anything negative but this review wouldnt be truthful if I didnt mention the few gripes we did have.
The cleaning was very poor, (its been fine to excellent in all other hotels we've stayed in during our 25 trips to Turkey. There isn't really anyone who takes care of the pool area and this needs to be corrected. As it is breexy there are flowers, leaves and insects being blown into the pool and cleaning once a day is insufficient. Also only half the filters in the pool wehree working and these were only turned on at night. They should be on at regular intervals in order to keep the pook clean. There was often a very greasy dirty film on top of the pool. and algae growing in some of the spillage vents on one side of the pool. We did point this out to our rep and during the last couple of days of our holiday they did make a bit more of an effort. We hope that they take this seriously because this is a lovely hotel with great potential, but these two things do let them down quite a lot.

I think that most of the comments are pretty fair and obviously different people have different holiday experiences!
Yes the gumbet cove is a nice pretty hotel in a very good location but it doesn't come without it's problems! To be honest my biggest gripe was with the Dutch that swarmed around the swimming pool causeing endless noise and making a general pest of them selves!
Regarding the last post from svempaj it might be useful if you actually review gumbet cove instead of just uesing trip advisor to slate the British and vent any jelous issues that you clearly to have!!

Gumbet cove has alot of qualities! Good food, good location and it's clean and tidy. You can't really expect more from a Turkish hotel.
I didn't find the staff particulaly helpful or friendly but like I said peoples experiences differ . I'm sure you will enjoy your holiday and stay at Gumbet Cove!!

We enjoyed our holiday at Gumbet Cove hotel very much. The location is the main attraction. Right on the beach and close to the centre of Gumbet.

Room Tip: Close to water (as the rooms there are newer)

Loved the gumbet cove , right on the beach with free sunbeds and just far enough from the noisy bars not to be disturbed but still only 5-10 walk away ,although plenty of restaurants around the bay to chose from for a romantic meal by the sea.
there was a free car park where we parked our car as we was just staying for 2 nights travelling from didim where we have our own apartment.
On arrival we was shown to our room and it was very pleasant with a small fridge and single beds, most turkish hotels are fairley basic which is what we expected but it was very clean. we didn't have a shower curtain in our bathroom so the floor was like a wet room but we didn't bother to complain as we thought this was only a small hic up.
the pool area was fantastic with sunbeds and bar and the hotel had very large gardens which you you sunbathe too, down a few steps you reached the beach bar which overlooked the bay and the sea only a few metres away.
the breakfast was a typical turkish breakfast with bread , tomato, cucumber, cheese, olives ,honey ,etc but you could get an english breakfast in town for a few lira if you wanted one.
the staff was very friendly and would definatly stay at this hoel again when we visit gumbet as good value at only around 10 pounds per room inc breakfast.
