Well what can I say, after the eventful day getting to the hotel feeling tired and grumpy first impressions were not great. We were greeted and bags taken to our room. The hotel is dated but kept very clean and the rooms are spacious but balconys were small.
We went to the Golden Beach Hotel for the last week of the season, so it wasnt at full capacity. The pool area at night was very nice, and we spent most of our days nights by the pool and pool bar.
The bar staff 'Barman Stud' and others were friendly and funny. We went all inclusive and the drinks were good but I would imagine limited for some people, but if your happy with local beer (very good), Vodka, Brandy, raiki and wine you will be fine.
Breakfast I would say was the best meal of the day day. There is plenty of variety of food at lunch and dinner but one thing I would say is the food could have done with being hotter. The bread and the salad selection was great. The snack bar by the pool was also very good with a homemade pizza type thing, burgers and chips, which I recommend.
We had no problem with getting a sunbed, and if you are after a beach holiday then the beach at the hotel was not that great but only 10mins down the road was Black Beach which was lovely with watersports.
The animation team put on a few hilarious shows (especially the fire show), beach volley ball, darts, bingo, spa treatments, boat trips, disco's and would also run trips for the party people to X Bar in Bodrum.
The local buses are frequent into Turgutreis which is only 3tl, and the bus stop with the Bodrum buses is located right outside the hotel.
We had an amazing time, but I would say this was mainly due to the people that we met. The holiday was great value for money. I miss the fun and laughter and wish I was still there.
