Took a long time poring over reviews and choosing a hotel, but when we came home, was very glad we chose to stay at Golmar. We arrived very late after a rubbish coach transfer (not aided by moaning British tourists I might add!!) but cheered up immediately when we were told our room had been upgraded free to a family room. We were on the fourth floor right at the end of the "corridor", and had amazing views over the bay - breathtaking.
We stayed b and b, and to be fair, it was pretty average, but I expected that before we left so wasnt to disappointed - if you want a good breakfast, pop round the corner to the Pig and Whistle, or up to Buffalo bar, full English at very silly prices! We ate out every night so coant comment on the dinner, but heard it was very good. Theres a beachfront bar with a pool table, we only used the bar a few times as we soon had our favourite places in town, and found it very hard to drag ourselves away from Huseyn and Kumru in the Pig and Whistle - lovely people and very welcoming.
The cleaning staff were beyond compare - the room was spotless every time we returned, and the towels folded into some impressive creations on the bed. On our last but one day, we left a tip, and returned to beautiful hearts made from towels, and covered with assorted flowers, petals and leaves, Fantastic, and goes to show how much difference a few English pounds makes to hard working cleaning staff - dig deep before you come home ;)
We had some issues sorting out transfer on the last day, but the hotel staff were very helpful and let me use their phone to call the transfer company - top tip, get a private transfer, its well worth the extra to get there at a sensible time with no stops and no dropping people at other hotels - I was amazed at how many people didnt know which hotel they were staying at, and took ages to get off the coach!!
The location is superb, and close to the boats for trips, and it has a good pool with plenty of loungers, both poolside and on a sun terrace. They have theor own Turkish bath and gym but we didnt use either so cant comment.
All in all a clean, basic and cheap hotel, and if I wasnt going self catering apartments next year, I would happily return
