“Honest review. ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

My wife and I stayed for ten days all inclusive. Bit worried having read recent reviews but the time spent was ok.

The location to the beach is perfect, and the hotel is close to everything
the food was ok although we had already decided that we were going to eat out at least half the evenings. Nice and relaxing when you come off the beach to sit and have a drink in the bar area.

The service at the bar is ok but the staff don't have any sense of who is next, they just serve the first person they see, us Brits were the only polite ones that said no he/she was first. Most other nationalities don't do this and this can be pretty bloody annoying.

The rooms are ok but as everyone has said, ask for ones by the pool (the quiet ones!!)but even there the music is unbelievably loud until 4am in the morning. All the clubs are very close and all seem to compete as to who can be the loudest!! We decided we were going to stay out till at least 1pm every night and have enough to drink to sleep!! If this isn't the case for you don't come here.

Other issue is that everything lacks an attention to detail, although everything worked it could do with a maintenance team going round the whole place and repairing things like decking, toilets, taps etc.

The other attention to detail that the place could do with is a visible person in charge directing the hard working staff, if nothing else this would at least make sure that the bar staff served in the right order!!!!!

We eat at the lotus and peters place place, Denny's all well worth a visit. Windmill was ok but a bit pricey for what we got, you are paying for the view.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

We, Magnific Family thank you for giving us an opportunity to serve you in this summer vacation. It’s pleasing that you remarked the perfect location of our hotel and that you noticed our hardworking and helpful staff. Certainly we have passed this on to our employees. You can be assured that we will keep on working hard to deserve those nice words. As you know Gümbet is described as a "lively resort" and we are unable to control noise not originated in our hotel.
We already discussed this with our Technican manager and he will warn his staff to keep up with guest requests and our Technican manager is warned to pay much more attention to your requests such as taps, decking. It was a pleasure to meet and serve you here, so please do not hesitate to contact me from info@themagnific.com for further help for your future vacations.

We were in this hotel from 22 till 29 of May 2014. One of us is handicapt. The people were very helpfull and did everything to make it comfortable.
The handicapt room was not so great and we got an other room. This was much better.
The rooms are being cleaned every day. Also the rest is very clean.
The food was good, but we would also advise the restaurant Soho next to the hotel.
The only thing is that the hotel is close to the disco's, so there is a lot of noise from 12 till 4 at night. We bought earplugs with the pharmacie, and we had no problem anyore.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that is on the back side of th hotel. Or ask for a room which is as quite as possi...

Hotel was nice, pool was great, food was good most nights. rooms were good. gym was minimal, play options are good. if you go outside the hotel best place is probably adams bar, really friendly and welcoming.

I booked this hotel, at a very good price. On arrival we where greeted by two members of male staff, friendly and welcoming, they checked us in, gave room and towel cards and all inclusive bands. They then took our luggage to our hotel room, number 5. When we opened the door, it was a little dissapointing, not at all like the photos but then again they never are. The room was tidy and partially clean. We did find other peoples food in the fridge from previous visit and used teabags under the bed. The toilet seat was coming off the floor and the furniture was very dated, luckily the experience of the hotel brought it around. The bar offer many drinks, vodka, gin, beer and local spirits. What made my holiday is the sex on beach and blue lagoon cocktails, and local Amaretto which saved me as I hate vodka. The bar staff are hit and miss about how friendy they want to be and they do seem to be very fond of the Germans, I will not lie about that, soon as they heard English they seemed unhelpful and always let other people push in constantly.It is very much true and obvious, but to be honest this did not affect me. I particulary enjoyed speaking to Ferhat, what a lovely gentleman along with samet, and ismail 1 and 2. The food the first few days was very good, and I enjoyed it. It was fresh, clean and well equipped in the restuarant. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The food was a little bit same old same, but it was great food. The hotel grounds where beautiful, clean and well presented. Plently of pool loungers, but this could change if hotel gets busier. The pool is very very deep so be careful, there is no shallow end. The entertainment in the evenings, is very good as there is a different show every night. The speciality restuarant which you get free of charge was not really to my taste, set three course meal. Flat bread and dips, Lamb main, then bakclava dessert. The staff where lovely though during the meal. Overall the hotel is lovely, the staff are lovely. The DJ is awful!! They need to get rid, the music is so bad, and he only speaks to foreign guests, he is very rude and arrogant. The music from the club bar street is unavoidable, it is so loud. I am 21 and it kept me awake even coming back from the clubs at 3/4am. The drinks in the main town are quite expensive coming in at 15/20 lira per drink. So drink as much as you can before! The beach is lovely we get our own area and sun loungers, there is a lovely man who does the boat trip called Popeyes, please please please book with him, he is so lovely and reliable, the food I got on this trip beat the hotel. The wifi never worked at the hotel, which was a real shame. Apparently they where problems across bodrum, but the wifi worked every now and then for like 10 minutes, so please do not rely on the wifi connection. I did have a lovely holiday, was a little sad when Elcin did not seem very interested in helping me or my friends, she seemed uninterested and rolled her eyes often, but read so many good reviews about her, that was a shame. it was a lovely hotel, room for improvements but overall it was good and I really enjoyed my time at this hotel, I would definitely return and looking to come back this year or next! Thank you Magnific, but work on those little things and you will be the best hotel in the whole of Bodrum <3

Room Tip: Move if you get room numbers 1-20

It’s pleasing that you remarked the perfect location of our hotel and that you noticed our friendly and helpful staff. Certainly we have passed this on to our employees. We have warned our Food and Beverage manager to reinforce the training of bar staff to improve the standards of service. You can be assured that we will keep on working hard to deserve those nice words. Actually, there were no german customers at the hotel. But there could be some of different nationalities. It's that effort that has stood the best time, and we will continue to ensure our clients receive the best experience at ours. And every english customer is a king or queen for us. It doesn't matter which country the valueable customers come from. We always serve you and all clients like "Custmer is A KING". But we will definetly pay more and more attention on our valuable english customers. We have increased our staff awareness and have made each and every member aware that our standards have to be of a high standard, to impprove the quality of service that we can all give our clienteles. As you know Gümbet is described as a "lively resort" and we are unable to control noise not originated in our hotel. We have warned our manager to reinforce the traning of dj staff to improve the standards of entertainment. Our Front Office manageress named Semra read your compliments and then she will have an appointment with elcin about her skills.

We booked this 1 week all inclusive getaway for late October 2013. For the price we paid, we weren't expecting anything special but we were presently surprised.The staff were very accommodating & helpful especially the bar & restaurant staff. The hotel backs right onto the beach which is kept very clean with sunbeds just for hotel guests. You can book excursions through a guy called Mehmet who works for the hotel & is very helpful. Even if you're not interested in an excursion, he is happy to sit & have a chat with you & answer any questions you may have about the hotel, town or local area. There are local excursion centres who offer the same trips but they seem to be at inflated prices.
The food was great, lots of choice & different food on a daily basis. They even put on a barbeque one night which was lovely. The bar was serving from early morning until midnight, the staff were always cheerful & helpful. The local spirits are very strong! They also offer their own take on classic cocktails on the all inclusive package.
The pool, although cold in October, was kept very clean & the sunbeds weren't too tightly packed together.
Our room was basic but clean, with maid service daily. We stayed on the street side of the hotel which was very noisy even in October, we only got a few hours sleep a night. The noise from the bars & clubs carries on until at least 3am. I'd recommend trying to get a room on the opposite side of the hotel to try & drown out the noise a bit.
The local area is really nice with lots of good shops for souvenirs etc. The locals will try & coax you into their shops, clubs & bars to try & haggle with you on prices. This got a little tedious with us to be honest as it was every time we went into the town & every time we walked past a shop or club/bar.
Overall for the money we paid for the package, we were very happy with what we got. Would highly recommend this hotel & the area.

Room Tip: Try & get a room on the opposite side of the hotel to the road. Noise from the bars & clubs...

Firstly, please don't underestimate the noise from this hotel. We were aware from other reviews that this hotel was near a nightclub. Nothing could have prepared me for how loud the music would be though. We were lucky enough to get a poolside room but the music was still loud. We managed to sleep through it but it spoiled relaxing in our room.

Food
Good standard of food with a reasonable selection to choose from. If staying more than a week you would probably become bored of the choices. Snack bar served pizza, burgers, chips, mad chicken nuggets. One a la carte meal is included but don't feel disappointed if you miss. It was tasteless in comparison to other meals served.

Rooms
Basic but clean. Small fridge was handy for water

Pool
I loved the pool. It is very deep ( cannot remember depth but I'm 5 "7" and could stand) but well maintained and was refreshing to have an adult pool. Lovely backdrop for evening meal.

Cats
There were lots of,cats around the hotel especially at meal times. I found them circling my feet at meals off putting and would suggest the hotel asks guests to refrain from them.

Location
Beach is right outside and the bus to Gumbet stops at the front of the hotel.

Facilities
Please note that the sauna is available to everyone and not just those using the Turkish Bath. There is mini golf, pool, and a Ping pong table

It's unfortunate how noisy the clubs are as this is a decent hotel that is being brought down by lack of noise control.

Room Tip: Request poolside.
