Reviewed 28 January 2008

Had a great 2 weeks holiday at the Parkim Palas. Room was small but comfortable. Meals were a little too restricted for my liking, not alot of choice but overall they were not that bad. The hotel is situated on the beach front. The hamocs are great for lounging in too. Try the No Name Bar when you go out for a drink at night.(left out of the reception door and about 150 mtrs on the left. Very Very cheap and very friendly.
Also the calipso bar at the left end of the bay as you look out to sea. Owned by Brits. Free Pool table. We will be going back in 2008 for the 3rd time to Gumbet but will try another hotel just for a change. If thats no good, we will go back to the Parkim Palas in 2009 lol. The Gullet ships are very cheap for a day out at sea too, they go to 5 islands and give you lunch on board. And the day trip to Kos is a must from Bodrum. Go and enjoy.

All the recent reviews are spot on about Parkim palas , it was definately a find!!
Rooms were basic but had everything you needed and were cleaned and towels /sheets changed daily.
Excellent location right on the beach where there are always sunbeds available,the pool gets busier and you may find you need to get up to save a prime location sunbed although not as early as some hotels I have seen .Plenty of bars and restaurants surrounding the hotel but you cannot hear any noise from them from the hotel or grounds, the latter being very pretty with banana trees and hammocks to relax in along with the tortoises to watch!!
The staff are all superb and so very helpful, waiters remember you and what you are drinking all the time.
The boat trips are a must and Dennis will do you a good deal on the hotels boat trip which was brilliant.
My one and only criticism is the food which could be a bit more varied and offer more choice..Childrens meals were available to request each night.
We ate out twice , at the Aloha opposite which was very good value and at the Hotels park restaurant ere entitled to 30% discount again a lovely meal.
All in all a lovely holiday we met some wonderful people and definately hope to return

This hotel was a great find. Probably one of the best in the Gumbet/Bodrum area. Two weeks wasn't enough here.

The hotel is set in a stunning garden, with flowers, banana plants, shrubs, lemon trees, cats and even a family of tortoise. The pool was large and with plenty of sun loungers. This environment made for a wonderful setting.

The location of the hotel is superb, right in the centre of Gumbet. Beach is at back of hotel, main street at front door. Two dolmus stops nearby. Easy walk to bar street, shops, and restaurants. Every thing is at the hotel or close by. However it was not noisy, and very relaxing in the grounds or by the pool.

All the staff can speak English. They are very helpful and friendly, from the cleaners to the reception area.They made you welcome and couldn't do enough for you.


The rooms were very clean, bedding and towels changed daily. Our balcony opened onto the picturesque garden. There was free air conditioning too. The mini bar was over priced, so we just refilled it with drinks bought from the shop across the street, and they never knew.


Food was fine, if somewhat limited in choice of evening meal dishes rather than the quality of them. What we ate in the hotel was OK, but often we took advantage of the hotels guests 30% discount. In the Park Steak Restaurant great food deal with a 3 course steak meal and wine for £6. Beat that. Or 30% off the Green Dragon Chinese,which was again top value for money and a wide ranging choice of dishes. Hotel has three of four bars in its grounds, with BOGOF drinks offers most nights.


To sum up this is a top hotel,and great value for money. Well located, with excellent facilities, staff, and a unique setting. We will definitely go back to this hotel.

We have just returned from the Parkim Palas Gumbet, Turkey, we had a lovely holiday, the hotel is very clean and plesently laid out ,the gardens are beautiful,and everything in surrounding gumbet is very easily reached. The staff at the Parkim palas are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble, the food which is of course different to english food is very nice,I like to try different foods my children on the other hand didn,t and they were offered a childrens menu which they were pleased about.my children loved the swimming pool and were very taken to the poolside waiters and bar staff,special thanks to Amed and Ramazan for all their hard work and always so cheerful, we will definately be coming back next year Iam already looking on the net for may 08,Thanks everyone at Parkim palas for a briilliant holiday.Carolyn and Lee from Brighton

I am getting ready to pack my suitcase and head off to the lovely resort of Gumbet where i'll be staying at The Hotel Parkim Palace.
Ive been to this hotel several times so i know to expect a warm welcome, a spotless room and beautifully maintained gardens! Also it's located right on the beach so, not far to walk after a night sampling Turkish Raki!
The staff are extremly pleasant and very helpful. Within seconds of reporting something like a spent lightbulb they are there ready to put it right. Most of them speak pretty good English too!
I have to say that the food is not fantastic. The meze is always something to look forward to though,plenty of fresh vegetables,which they grow on their own farms, and its always very plentiful.
I also have to say i also applaude the fact that there are security guards patrolling the gardens 24 hrs a day. There are afew occasions when, being that we are a group of women, we sometimes get split up and have to make our way back, alone, to the rooms. It is pretty dark in the gardens at night but the presence of the security guards helps to provide a safer atmosphere.
So basically, if the major factors of your holiday are based on: Clean rooms,good service and an excellent location, id definatley recommend the Parkin Palace. It may not be a 5star hotel but it's staff and location certainly help make up for that.
