Overview- I would definately go back to La maison. The location was ideal and it is value for money. Yes the apartments are basic- but very clean and plenty of space. I loved the pool area and there was a lovely view of mountains. The staff were a pleasure and really do their best to make your stay a great one!!!! La maison I shall be back next year!!
Pool- Nice atmosphere around the pool
I really liked the pool. The music played throughout the day was varied but mainly nice chilled r''n'b tracks. There are plenty of sunbeds for everyone- however- they are very close to one another- so be ready to be freindly with fello guests. The pool is smallish but i liked it- and thought there was enough space for the amount of guests staying there.
Rooms- Basic but spacious and clean
Okay- I think there is plenty of room in yr apartments. The Kitchen is very basic but you have a sink, two hobs, a frigde and a kettle- so you need to get creative with cooking- If you can be bothered. The bathroom is small but clean- the shower is soooooooo small- its smaller than a phonebox- but you're not gonna spend long in there so who cares. There is seating areas and plenty of space. The balcony is tiny- we just used to for drying clothes each day. The rooms are basic but fine, although the beds are not too comfy. Overall i loved the accomodation- like a little basic but clean flat. One major improvement needed is giving rooms a tv- which we thought we were getting. The tv they refer to is in reception- and generally on a dodgy turkish channel.
Food and Drink- Pretty reasonable for a quick and easy lunch.
Well the good thing about not going all inclusive is- you can pick and choose where you eat. The food served throughout the day was reasonably priced- although you would get a lot more for your money popping down the road. I must say I loved there chips- 6 liras for a big plate- which kept you going til dinner time. but there are other options- bugers, salads, omletes etc. Like most self catering places you cant consume food and drink bought from the outside, around the pool area. I found this difficult- cause your constantly needing to drink- and spending money can get drained pretty quickly. I would keep their water bottles I bought from the bar and refil them from water in the room fridge (much cheaper from the local shop). so I just pay for food and fizzy.
Staff- Nice staff
Right firstly Sed who works the night shift behind the bar is fanastic. Really friendly and funny and man does he like keeping the bar clean. The guy running the bar in the day is called John- he is a little quieter but he is really nice also. Our cleaner was lovely also. The guys at the reception desk I never really got to know all that well, but they seemed nice also.
Location- Ideal location- right in the heart of Gumbet. Five minutes from the beach and two minutes from bar street. However the the restaurants and bars on the high street have a lot to offer by themselves. The corner bar is owned by La maison- its just downstairs- nice food, great staff and very cheap. I also really liked The Roxy- the lads in there keep you entertained with their dancing. Just keep an eye on yr bill throughout the night. Plus china town right near by- gorgeous food- a little more expensive than the other restaurants but they do set menu's which are cheaper and its def worth a visit. Oh big tip- go there for breakfast- its 5 lira (around 2 quid) for a full english or irish breakfast and its huge & so goooooooooooood!! They also provide you with a paper after yr breakfast. Really liked the staff at this place and reading the guest book- its clear they are very popular with visitors.
