“My honeymoon”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

Me and my wife have just recently returned from our honeymoon were we spent two weeks at this hotel. Before we went on holiday we had read some bad reviews on the hotel but we went with an open mind. The reviews we read were complaining about the food and staff but we didn't have any problems with either of these. The staff were really friendly and always willing to help, also the food was excellent if you were willing to try new things plus the bread and salad were always fresh. The rooms were a really good size and cleaned daily. The hotel has three pools one is a baby pool and the other two are for everyone else, the pools were good size and clean. The only fault I would have with pools is there too deep and certain people couldn't go in. The entertainment and activities ran by Toto and his team Roberto, Kashia Remco Felix Jaja and Martyna was excellent and made our two weeks amazing. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would happily go back in the future. Great hotel and great holiday. Thanks Golden Beach.

Great holiday,highly enjoyed and never wanted to leave! Firstly some reviews about this hotel aren't fantastic but some aren't true either. The staff were always on hand to top up drinks at meal times, the food choices were vast and for the fussy eater plenty of chips. Salad and fruit aplenty and the desserts a good selection. Dont go expecting an english fry up though.
The rooms- nice basic looking, all as expected as no one spends much time in them when away, fridge, tv, hair dryer all included. The balconies were not as i'd hoped, small -fitting just two chairs and a small table, and not with a good view of anything.
Our air conditioning didnt work but the reception staff were good about moving us to a different room of our choice and complemented us with wine and fruit which was unexpected but shows that they go beyond to try and please their guests.
Two choices of pools, nice and relaxing with entertaining activities at certain times during the day which were great to watch even though I didnt choose to join in.
The animation team were an excellent addition to this holiday and definitely made the holiday enjoyable and unforgettable. The evening entertainment was good and they always had something planned if you wanted a late night outside the hotel walls. Definitely felt safe and looked after when out with them which is always important when abroad.
I think a holiday is what you make it and if you go here after reading negative reviews then subconsciously your going to think negatively. So be positive and look forward to your well deserved holiday :)
I never visit the same destination/hotel twice but would make an exception to repeat this holiday.

I have just returned from 10 days at this hotel and i can surely and safely say that i wish i had not of gone, i feel gutted that i wasted my money to spend time at this hotel. i would of had a better time in a tent in the bottom of my garden. The hotel was dirty and smelly, the staff were all rude and ignorent (apart from two) and the service was the worst i had ever encountered.
I went to this hotel with an open mind even though i had read bad reviews as i am not a picky person and just wanted to relax and get away, but i am gutted that i went. It was a foul hotel with foul food, dirty facilities and no air conditioning anywhere apart from the rooms. There is only on e ar that you can get a drink from in the evning - by the main pool. The Bar in the swimming pool is not fuctional anymore and the others are only open at meal times or only serve Tea. The Drinks are all flat - which is not supprising considering they pour them from bottles into gas canisters then have them come out the pumps. there is one type of beer and the most foul tasting Vodka i have ever tried-(these are the all inclusive drinks) the rest you have to pay for. The Towels provided by the hotel are the size of a t-towel and im glad i brought my oen towels as you are not provided any by the pool. The swimming pools were a good size and was nice that there was a quiet pool and an activity pool but unfortunatly i saw many elderly have trouble getting out the pool as the steps are ALL broken, we also asked our rep if the hotel could clean round the edge of the pool as there was a 3 inch thick black/grey line all round the edge of built up sun cream and sweat- they wiped the darkness of it off but did not clean it. Reception was the place that people came if they wanted to sit and use the WI-FI but you had to be prepared to sweat as they would not turn the air conditioning on when asked. The games room was like an old Cellar, Biro drawings all over the wall, splattered stains and hanging lights out the walls, The Ping pong Table was th eonly thing that was not broken and the sofas looked and smelt like they could wonder off on their own. The animation Team was Funny and fantastic ( expecially the manager) but one of the youger males made us feel uncomfortable with his constant over closeness to teenage girls on holiday-he liked to stroke their hair and sit on their laps which may be fine where he comes from but it made me very mad. The only thing that i was Pleased with out of the whole holiday was the excursions as they were fantastic but not supplied by the hotel-they were supplied by Thompson. Turgutreis was a brilliant town with plenty to do and the market, scenery, atmosphere and feeling there was well worth the several visits there we made.Our Thompson Rep was also very helpfull but unfortunately the hotel would not listen to er either. There are plenty of other hotels in this area-so please dont waste your oney like we did and dont come to this one- i am truely upset that i went here. Oh and i wouldnt even bother venturing into the spa/fitness room or indoor pool because the pool is discusting, the spa treatments we had were rubbish and the sauna had a big hole in the floor and seat that is very dangerous.

we've just returned from our family holiday at the golden beach hotel, and to be fair we went with an open mind due to a few bad reviews about the place..
i can honestly say the hotel was fantastic, very clean, friendly staff, and clean bedding each day.
the kids loved the choice of pools, the activities during the day were great, the snack bar provided plenty of pizza, burgers and chips.
the beach was a slight disappointment but saying that we rarely left the complex apart from a great boat trip to several places which included camel beach, where the kids got to ride a camel. (10 euros each)..
the annimation team were superb during the day and provided great evening entertainment for all the family, and spent alot of time keeping the kids occupied..
the selection of food was vast, yet not to everyones taste as they didnt serve your traditional bacon, sausage, egg etc... there was plenty of local dishes, with lots of friut and salad..
the drinks were plenty and the beer was fine, i would definately recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a relaxing yet entertaining holiday without the hustle, bustle or any rowdyness..
we certainly had a great time :-))

First of all this hotel is actually a great value for money considering. The room is basic, it provides you with a fridge, clean sheets and towels and a small balcony - which unfortunately didn't look out onto the sea (although I think almost none of the rooms did). Having said this, the room was adequate and we had no problems with it. There was a very wide selection of food ranging from salads, soups,traditional Turkish dishes and BBQ food which changed every night. We think a lot of the reviews here are unfair about the food - some of it is cold because it's supposed to be and the stuff that's supposed to be warm is warm okay? You can get food most of the day as the beach bar serves chips, burgers and pizza throughout the afternoon. Also, the waitor service at lunch and dinner is fantastic - they dress smartly and are always keeping your glasses full. The only thing we would say is they do try and take your plate from you sometimes before you've finished! The bar was also good, the beer is fine and the spirits and soft drinks are too - yes the spirits aren't that strong but they give you more etc and you can have as much as you like so it doesn't matter really.

The pool isn't dirty at all - its clean as is the poolside. We found we could always get a lounger despite it being peak season. The animation team keep you occpied throughout the day and I often played beach volleyball whilst my girlfriend went to water gym or aerobics. This was great as we could meet others easier etc. remco and kasio were great, as was Roberto. The beach isn't up to much but again it's close and as the pool is so good it doesn't matter. Turgutreis is close and busses are frequent and cheap, whilst bodrum is also easily accessible both day and night.

The only quarm with the whole trip was Thompson. As a company they are a logistical nightmare and lack integrity throughout. It took us two attempts to book the holiday after they took the money from our bank but had no record of a booking. We were also told it was 7 nights but we got there at 0600 local time and were made to check out at 1200 on the final day even though we weren't getting picked up from the hotel until 12 hours later, therefore we only slept in our room for 6 nights and only had access to the room for 6.5 days which was a bit cheeky as they advertised it as longer, then expect 30 euros to keep the room for the rest of the day! Also the air crew were a nightmare as they couldn't seem to get bags from the plane to the terminal, meaning we spent a total of 3 hours (all together with both flights) waiting for luggage. A Thompson staff member told us the bags were en route and 25 minutes later there were still no bags - were they still in turkey we wondered?

Anyway, key facts - food good, staff great, room sufficient, weather great, surrounding towns full of life, fun and traditional. Also the views were just fantastic from the beach - very very very nice! We recommend the boat trip too.

My partner and i just got back from the Golden Beach Hotel and we had a great holiday. We went with an open mind after reading the mixed reviews on here and were pleasantly surprised.

Our room was basic but was very clean, we didnt spend much time in the room so it did what we needed it to. There was only one english channel on the TV but again we didnt spend much time watching tv, so it wasnt a problem.

The whole place was extremely clean and well kept. The waiters and bar staff were really friendly and work hard.

The Animation Team were amazing, especially Remco (the young toto!), Gaga, Kasha, Roberto, Felix and Toto. They work really hard at getting everyone involved and making you feel welcome by playing pool games and generally chatting to you. The evening entertainment was good and always funny. The Turkish Night was brilliant.

We had a Turkish bath at the hotel spa and it was a relaxing experience. Hussan who sells the spa treatments was very helpful and friendly throughout our stay.

Beach is just across the road from the hotel and there is always as security person their to escort you.

Turgutreis is not far away and you can catch the bus to this just outside the hotel. It only costs 3TL per person.

The food was a bit repetitive and the drinks sometimes tasted watered down but you get what you pay for!

We would definitely stay here again and I would recommend this hotel to young couples, girls/ lads holidays and young families.
