“5th visit...”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

This hotel is still as good as it was 5 years ago!
On top of this, I have just discovered another aspect which most people will hopefully not have to consider, until they are confronted with the issue.

My mother was taken ill the very last day of our stay. Nothing to do with the hotel mind! Just something that happens when you are no longer a spring chicken!

This hotel actually has its own doctors surgery in-house, and they were fantastic! Within an hour, my mother was rushed into a medical surgery within Gumbet, escorted by the doctor himself, and within one hour, we had the diagnosis and treatment was started.

As we were flying home the same night, she was then escorted by shuttle to the Acibadem hospital just out of Bodrum, where they stabilised her and assessed her as "fit to fly". Can you imagine this happening back home? No way!

So this hotel is not only the best holiday resort I know, but also the safest!

PS: Please, please: don't forget to book travel insurance. We did and it was really worth it! You never think it will happen to you, until....

Thank you Bade and team, for yet another memorable holiday!

stayed at the wow in Gumbet end of June. loved this hotel. great food with plenty of choice.
although it was all inclusive didn't see anyone drunk. visited Bodrum most nights as the shops
were open t0 3am. Better shopping than New York. lol. Also visited the Oasis shopping centre
outside Gumbet where there were lovely shoe and clothes shops (no fakes) at good prices,
the bus station opens 24 hours a day so you can get a bus back to Gumbet every 5 mins.
This is my second year to Gumbet and will return soon. The hotel had every facility we
required and couldn't fault it on anything.

We have not long returned from our honeymoon at WOW Bodrum and we very much have the blues.

They treated us like absolute royalty and they did with all their guests. Waited on, free mini bar, friendly, fun and excellent assortment and selection of food 24/7.

As soon as we arrived they congratulated us and had everyone's luggage taken to the rooms. The view from our balcony was breath taking, inside the room was dated and clashed somewhat but very comfortable.

The facilities were brilliant, large pools, water flumes and a large pier with cushions and sunbirds on the private beech which you could dive from in the sea.

All the staff were so friendly and helpful, entertainment was hilarious throughout the day and evening plus the onsite photographers were great.

The only down fall was the people from the spa and hairdressers were very intrusive, kept disturbing us to try and sell their services by the pool. They were also rude with talking about you and mocking you thinking you did not understand them.

Nonetheless we are talking about returning already! Very little money is needed, everything is included and of high quality.

BIG TIP: do not take TL, use British Pounds or Euro - better value of money and they prefer it.

I stayed here with my 11 yr old and we had a great time check in was fast and efficient our cases were taken to our room for us , the room was a bit dated but it had everything we needed and was clean . Air con,kettle ,hair dryer,mini bar a safe and great views. The hotel is set out like a little village the gardens and surrounding ares are kept well. We ate in all the restaurants there is something for everyone food and drink is available 24/7. We had a few days down at the beach with was clean and comfortable . The pool area was full by 9.30 am but the beach boy always did his best to get u beds and a umbrella where it ment bring more out of storage or moved other ppl stuff :) .i found most of the staff pleasant and helpful , kids tend to be blanked at the bar until adults were served :( my daughter I pod went missing and it turned up again thanks to who ever handed it in. The entertainment staff were always full of energy smiling and worked really hard to entertain the wide range of ppl well done. There really was nothing to complain about we loved it and will return. There is a bus to take u to gumbet and bordrom 3tl ppl there are not bus stopped just get on and off where ever. Bordrom is cheaper and shopping was a experience with lots of haggling and banter. We had a Turkish bath and bronze treatment in the spa with was nice but the do put pressure on u to get more treatments.

This is a great hotel if you are travellling as a group. There was 16 of us and the age range was from 14 to 50yrs. Let me start with the food it was fantastic could not ask for any better. The entertainment staff were excellent and the entertainment was very good. The rooms really could do with an update but are clean and our room was 3431 which was very handy to everything. The volley ball court could do with new soft sand it would cut the legs of you if you fell in it. But all the staff were helpful and friendly. We had a fantastic time. We were there at the end of May and it was busy enough dont know if I would like to be there in August or at the busy times. But will definately go back and would recommend it to all my friends and family. Thankyou Wow for making our holiday

Room Tip: Our room was perfect lovely sea view and close to everything 3431

We've been in Turkey with my family and our friends, another 2 families and total of 3 kids (Simona, Alex, Costi, Ioana, Stefan, Andy, Diana, Jasmine, another Diana and the last but not the least, Narcis :) ). We really had fun together, the Resort is so big, got food available all day and night, entertainment from 10 AM to midnight. Also the jewellery shop was amazing, I bought a beautiful butterfly necklace, butterflies earrings, excellent quality gold, there was a small shop with everything you need so we didn't go out of the resort, we just stayed every day by the swimming pool. Just once we went to the Aqua Park, which was also amazing, but not like the one from Tenerife :( ... We also went to the Hotel's SPA to have a Turkish bath were we had an interesting experience, there were 2 woman and 1 man, I think that the man was the partner of one of these womans, as she seems very gelous on him massaging our friend... :) It was fun, I'm telling you! The Animation Team was wonderful, especially Omar, Seren, Simon, the presenter, and all of them, I'm sorry I don't know everybody's names. I will recommend this Resort to everydoby because of the amazing healthy food, lots of entertainment by the pool and beach, lots of aqua sports. My experience was very good, I hope yours will be the same. Thanks for reading.
