Myself and my friend have just returned from a two week stay at this hotel. We were half board and whilst other than our room we didnt spend a great deal of time at the hotel or bar, were impressed with many aspects. Firstly the hotel looks beautiful with surrounding greenary. The room was spacious enough for two, with suitable storage and all basic ammenities. We had a couple of problems, a broken fridge and a mattress too hard to sleep on, the staff however were quick to fix these issues for us.
One of the things admired most about this hotel was the cleanliness. The staff were meticulous in both cleaning the room and the pool surrounds every day. The staff for the most part were helpful and friendly (particularly the young girl with the long dark curly hair)
The food was edible for the most part. Ive had better and would reiterate the point others have made that it became repetitive and the same food on occasion appeared reheated from an earlier meal. We didnt spend a great deal of time here as previously mentioned as there is no entertainment however this wasnt a problem for us (they never advertised that they provided this so dont understand how others can complain with so many other bars nearby)
We would highly recommend a visit to the in hotel spa for a turkish bath and massage. Best one i have experienced.
The location initially was a great bonus away from the noise of the bars but close enough to walk to. Sami beach is recommended for great entertainment, on bar street Why Not is a great chill out bar with some really friendly staff. Also cant recommend enough the Dreamgirls show on at the theatre. Bodrum is a short bus journey away and is great for a day trip for some nice sites and shopping.
Sadly this is where the cons come in.The location whilst away from the noise also requires a walk either along a roadside or along an unlit path past a basketball court which is unsafe. Gumbet is unkempt, areas of the beach are filthy but the biggest con? the Turkish men. Having holidayed in Turkey before i am shocked that this is not being governed more. Harassing is common in Turkey and we expected this with shops bars etc however this was beyond shocking. Some of the bar staff as well as random Turkish men in the street approached us, followed us, put their hands on us and made us feel uncomfortable as we tried to enjoy nights out in the bars and clubs with other staff rarely getting involved to deal with this. Heaven forbid you be nice to any of them cause it appears they read this as an invite for sex. Not every one of them is like this however and some staff spoke to us about how fed up they are of it, as well as some helping us when we were being harassed but it is unbareable and tarnished what should have been a great holiday.
Really liked the hotel but would not return to Gumbet unless the government and bar owners get this sorted. Would only recommend a holiday here for large groups which include males. Four stars for the hotel but overall 3 stars for the holiday
