“Stay away!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014 via mobile

I was at this hotel with four fellow female mates in August 2013. Well, where do I begin!? Firstly, the reception staff, bellboys and guest relations manager- dreadful is an understatement.

Upon arrival, the reception staff tried extremely hard to negotiate with and place us in one of the villas which we declined; as it was a bit of a walk from the main building. Turns out the reason for this was that they had given our pre-booked rooms to 'the owner's relatives/guests'!

They then took us to two other isolated rooms which had keys labelled 'disabled room 1' and 'disabled room 2', in which everything was suited for disabled people-from holding bars in the bathroom to special toilet seats. There were spiders in almost every corner and the towels were filthy!

After several visits to the reception and guest relations manager - where almost a quarter of the hotel guests seemed to be meeting to fire complaints also, we managed to upgrade to a larger family room which was only OK.
Our rooms were not cleaned unless requested, our beach towels were covered in coffee stains and we were not provided with loo roll. The housekeeping 'manager' was far too cheeky and not apologetic at the slightest.

Finding a table or even a seat at meal times was stress, and by the time we could find somewhere to sit our food would be freezing cold - (nothing particularly appetising throughout our 10 night stay, anyway). The most stressful and frustrating 10 days I have ever spent.

Whatever you do, however cheap your holiday may be and no matter how appealing this hotel may seem - please avoid!

Stayed August 2013, travelled with friends

Just returned after 14 day enjoyable stay. After reading the reviews of guests who stayed at the same time I felt it necessary to point out the following:
* Original bedroom was clean but small, asked to be moved, 2 days later given a much nicer room with sea view and terrace.
* Our door key not working efficently, reprogrammed a few times and then replaced.
*The food was very good, true that it was not always steaming hot from the buffet trays and maybe not gourmet, but a good,varied choice with nightly specials that were freshly cooked so obviously hot!! We chose to eat an hour or so after the restaurant opened as at opening time there was usually a queue.
*The hotel provides a regular mini bus serice into Bodrum for approx £10.00 return. Also there is a local bus service from the entance of the resort ( change at Gundogan bus station) for Bodrum that runs every 30 mins and costs under £2.50 per person each way.
* Regarding the Russian guests, some of which were arragant and rude,just count to ten, smile and forget!!
* There is a good choice of areas with sun loungers but I suggest placing a towel to reserve them before breakfast! When in Rome etc etc
I recommend a trip into Bodrum and a boat trip, we paid £ 8.00 per person for an all day trip with lunch provided, purchased from a kiosk in Bodrum. Try Gundogan as we saw boats leaving from there each day.Don't purchase via hotel, costs a lot more.
In all this hotel is good value for money, it is in a beautiful setting, the weather was perfect. The staff do their best to speak English and are very helpful. if you require luxury then pay twice as much and go else where.

Room Tip: If you are not happy with your room ask for a transfer.

Worst Hotel I Have Ever Experienced!!!!!!!, Just Retuned 23/09/2013 From 14 Days, Would Rather Stayed In Colditz, The Hotel Is In The Middle Of Nowhere And It Costs £50 In a Taxi To Reach bodrum Town. On Arrival To Our Room The Bed Was Not Made Cigarette Butts On Floor And Rubbish Still In The Bin From Previous Occupant, Its Full Of Arogant Russians Pushing in All Of The Time, The Staff In The Hotel Welcome The Russians More Than British. Food Was Cold Every Single Day Had To Eat Soup For 14 Days On An All Inclusive Holiday The Russians Cue Up For Meal Time So Its 50 Deep On Arrival at Resteraunt And They Are So Greedy Piling Food on There Plates and No One Smiles, They Take All The Sun Loungers Around The Pools With There Towels Even The Hotel Staff Were Looking Forward To Leaving The Place Wich hould Say Enough I Cannot Tell You Hoe Much I Was Glad To Leave This !!it Hole

Room Tip: Best Tip For A Good Room Is To Choose Another Hotel As Far Away As Possible DONT GO !!!!!!!!!!

I am 69 years of age and have seen and stayed un all sorts of places around the world but this hotel is by a mile the worst place I have ever been to. The staff are surly and disdainful. They made me feel like I was a nuisance to them. Russians were boorish, greedy, wasteful and invariably drunk; never knowingly walk round someone when it's easier to walk through them.Bathroom grab rail fell off, shower screen fell down, neither were fixed. Cockroaches on floor. Bed was actually quite comfortable. Beach lift not working. The list is endless. Place needs renovating and, in my experience staff's bad attitude emanates from the top. Suggest new CEO with a more positive attitude.The most senior person I met was the Executive chef. If you were lucky you would get a one word grunt for an answer,that word was usually "no". Dinner time was changed to be less convenient to those returning from trips. Opening time 7.00 pm. Closing time 9.00 pm. The wine was taken away at 8pm. (Chilled red wine in tumblers.......sounds 5* doesn't it.) I was SO glad to leave and wouldn't stay there if they paid me. Miles from anywhere. They got me a "taxi" that ran out of diesel after 2 miles. One evening, returning from a trip, the driver got lost! Don't go there!!!!!

Hello everyone, we just came back from 10 days in GBR. What you read here below in the other reviews its partially truth for sure its not 5 stars hotel, how we know everywhere in the world, BUT this place has the best location in all Bodrum. The room, are ok, the service its not so bad, and WIFI doesnt work properly. But again you are going to Bodrum not to spend time in the room, and not to make friend with the employers, you go there to swim, to get sun, to relax, and eat as much as you can, because everybody loves All inclusive))) and this is all you will get in GBR.

Enjoy your vacation and be patience)))

Where do i start firstly the good points
location you would be hard pushed to find a hotel with views that this hotel has got beutiful. very hilly and a little bit isolated but there is a local dolmus that runs every 15-20 mins to gundogan bus station from where you can get buses to just about anywhere.
staff this is where we start to go downhill i can count on one hand how many good staff this hotel has got the rest are lazy and unhelpful 1 example needed some toilet rolls asked told no finish had to go main lobby wc and get toilet paper from there.
resteurant iv'e been in roadside cafe's with better service ask for butter told no finish if you want some will be extra. ketchup no finish etc etc
food was'nt very good but always found somthing to eat but not very hot.
russian guests iv'e never met a race as arrogant illmanerd and ignorant as these people meal times they are like locusts soon as doors open they swarm piling plates with food and fruit and then waste it don't say you have'nt been warned.
pools are lovely we spent most of our time at the waterfall pool with some other brits who really made our holiday.on the final day of our holiday we had a 17:30 pick-up so we checked out at 12:00 and asked if there was anywhere we could shower after spending the rest of the day by the pool they said spa would be available went to spa about 16:00 told no finish went to reception asked where we could shower told to see pool guys in outside pool the showers they wanted us to use were the outside showers by the pool i was absolutly disguted and gobsmacked what a way to treat paying guests we had beg a cleaner for some bath towels and ask our brilliant friends we met if we could use thier rooms.to sum up this hotel at the moment has got little or nothing going for it apart from the view my rating for this hotel 3* at a push.
