We are so pleased with ourselves to have found this hidden gem of a hotel in busy Gumbet. This beautiful family run hotel is excellent value,great location and extremely well run. We have no hesitation in recommending this lovely little quiet hotel.
Gumbet is extremely busy and very commercialised, so it was lovely to be able to get up in the morning in our hotel with the birds chirping and the sea lapping against the shore. We would have hated to stay in many of the other large, all inclusive, noisy hotels around Gumbet, especially those in Bar Street.
The hotel is family run and it was great to see the family having their meals in the dinning room with their guests and all the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. The gardens very relaxing with their loungers and large cushions, with a great view of the sporting activities in the Cove. We adored being able to take our morning coffee with us from the dinning room down onto the gardens to look out over the sea and watch the boats go out. The chill out cafe area on the beach is a great way to unwind in between swimming and relaxing on your lounger.
The pictures on the website to be honest do not do it enough justice, it is even nicer when you get there.
Take some water shoes for the beach at it is a bit stoney as you get into the water, but the beautiful sand under your feet and loads of fishes swimming around you. A tip would be to book your boat trip through the guys with the stand on the beach so you end up with a trip on the yacht which can hold up to 25 people, rather than a huge boat carrying 80+ making the day (we heard) very unconfortable. The guys on our boat were brilliant, bent over backwards to help us and it was really exciting when they put their snorkle and flippers on and went and caught octopus for their supper.
We can highly recommend eating at the hotel, as the food was lovely and they even gave away free meze and garlic bread as starters. Their pricing was good as well. To be honest the rest of the so called restaurants in Gumbet were a bit of a let down, so stick with the hotel would be our advice. The only good restaurant around was Saray Zetas which is not far from the hotel and it is a place that the Turks go to as well. Highly recommended.
All in all, 10 out of 10 for the hotel. Gumbet itself is a bit commercialised. We took a trip to a quiet little village Gumusuluk (not sure if that spelling is right) which was so peaceful and beautiful. We had a superb freshly caught fish lunch overlooking the sea - well worth a visit.
We loved our two day trip to Ephesus and Pamulkale (again not sure on the spelling) and would recommend them to anybody that hasn't been.
