Reviewed 13 July 2014

First time in Turkey & won't be the last at this hotel. Bar staff are extremely friendly and very helpful. Special thanks to head waiter Arafat for making our stay so enjoyable. No complaints at all except food being a bit repetitive. Won't stop us from going back :)

stayed for a week with my disabled son who is in a wheelchair and a few family members, this hotel is hugely accessible and in a great location with a bus stop only a few mins away. The food was nice but the breakfasts could be improved it was the same thing everyday. The hotel was also very noisey, I was disappointed in the drinks selection also as it is only certain drinks included in the all inclusive package. The outside area is very nice and the staff were all very nice to my son.

Room Tip: don't stay on the ground floor due to noise

Excellent holiday with me and 4 mates. Really good hotel, especially considering how much we paid. Food was excellent, Efes beer was decent too. Clean and we'll kept. Romeo at the bar was excellent and always had a smile on his face.

No complaints at all, and seemed to be much better than other nearby hotels from what we heard from guests staying there. Would definitely go back.

Stayed for a week all inclusive, we managed to get a last minute bargain.

The rooms are typical of a 3-4star turkish hotel, adequate, everything worked and were clean. There was a tv, fridge, hairdryer and air con. The walls are on the thin side, but the beds were comfy enough.

There is free wifi in the lobby, a pool table (I didn't use it so unsure whether it was free or not), and notice boards of activities around gumbet (although cheaper deals can be haggled with the local shops).

There are two medium sized pools and two small ones for children. The aren't heated but very refreshing in the turkish heat. They seemed clean enough and did see the water getting tested so no grumbles there. There were no broken tiles around the pool that I saw, although would always recommend wearing flip flops anyway.

The food was good. It is a buffet style that has to cater for many nationalities, but there was always plenty too choose from and seemed fresh. I like to eat quite a healthy diet so there was plenty of chicken veg and salad to choose from. They had live cooking on the grill each night which was nice too. It is a buffet so dont expect fine cuisine but you won't go hungry. The deserts are really nice though.

The all inclusive had vodka, gin, raki, cola, fanta, lemonade, tonic. Juices and tea and coffee (weren't keen on the coffee but didnt have a good cuppa at any of the cafes in turkey either)

It is in a good location in gumbet, a short walk to a beach (not a great beach tho) very mear to a bus stop which for 3 lira takes you through gumbet to bodrum or go the other way to a nice beach). It is a short walk to the shops or bar street for a night out. It is a lively night out, we didmt bother having a night in bodrum as the clubs in gumbet were that good anyway.

The best part of the hotel was the staff, they were all friendly, the tables were always cleared straight away. Arafat amd romeo especially were very nice and very helpful. They were always having a laugh and a joke. The entertainment team vito, amerie and jenk were all fun, and did there best to keep people entertained whether it was competitions, water polo or drinking games. They even looked after the guests if they saw them out on bar street at night and would help get you back to the hotel when youve had a few too many.

Overall its an ok hotel with an excellent team of staff throughout. I would recommend, and if I was to go back to gumbet I would consider staying there again.

Very sort 3 days in Turkey to catch a bit of sun and had the pleasure of staying at the Royal Palm Beach in Gumbet. To keep this review short its in bullet points.

On arrival in the early hours was welcomed with a food box as the restaurant was closed and a drink from the bar even though it was well past the All Inc times which was well needed after a delayed flight.

Room was to a very high standard, modern bathroom, flat screen TV, fridge, all the usual stuff expected from a 4*

Hotel was run to a high standards with constant clearing of plates, glasses and reception staff always on hand. Pool area was immaculate with new looking sun loungers and parasols.

Breakfast and lunch was nothing special but the evening meals were wonderful, as it was a short visit nothing had the chance to become repetitive as is the nature of All Inc hotels.

On a couple of occasions the bar run out of ice and didn't offer brandy and whisky as part of the All Inc but the beer and other drinks i had were fine.

Location is a few meters from the sea front, cant really get much closer.

Didn't spend time in the local area so have no comment on what there is going on out and about other than a walk around Bodrum.

What i didn't like:-
-Music played from the poolside bar was representative and all modern pop, bit of a mix would have been better at a lower volume.
-Lack of choice from the bar.
-No small snacks to nibble on outside the All Inc hours.
-Payable WIFI outside of the reception, all hotels in my oponion should offer this free as standard.

Would i return to this hotel, most defiantly yes its good value, small enough to have a personal touch and located in a good position. I would suggest for a quite stay book a room away from the pool area to avoid the irritating pool side music but the down side is the rear of the hotel has now view.

Get out and see Turkey its filled with loads of great stuff to visit & before you hit the beach get a Turkish Bath its most relaxing, cost next to nothing and is said to help with your tan.
