“random turkish hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

To start with, would not return to this hotel. Rooms were not ready until 3.30 pm. We were given a family room which was not safe for kids. The air cons inside were not very noisy but still, I could´t sleep as the outside part was attached to the bedroom wall and it was very noisy. Breakfast is extremely poor, especially for kids. All you get is some ugly coffee and the typical turkish breakfast: tomatoes, cucumbers, olives and some sort of cheese. No water or cheap juice for free.

Only stayed a couple of nights on a few occasioons before moving on to the Marina.

It a quiet, very frendly hotel set in the forest, it has some really nice walks and the sounds of the birds twittering and smells of the Pine trees and Lemon Groves, (pick some overhanging one for the afternoon G & T) are unforgettable.

Breakfast is a very relaxed affair set in the open air by the pool

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are scattered around, but if you like a lie in ask to be away from the pool...

This was perfect. I recently spent 9 nights at Hotel Forest Gate. I cannot explain my experience. I was initially hesitant to book because of a bad review. I decided to give it a try. I only booked for 3 nights but ended up extending to 9. I have stayed at many of the other luxury hotels in Gocek, this is truly a special place. It started with the excellent service by the entire staff. I arrived at the hotel after midnight and was immediately taken to my room for a in-room check in which literally took less than 5 minutes. It was a wonderfull stay, I have booked the same room for Sep till October. 2012.

We spent a week at the Forest Gate in April 2011, choosing to go "out of season" for a change. As always we were welcomed warmly and made to feel that we were returning to see old friends. As the hotel was quiet we were offered our pick of the rooms and even moved room after a couple of days to a room with a sunnier verandah! Nothing was too much trouble and we had a fantastic week. We came away feeling rested, relaxed and completely spoilt by Ayfer and Ender. We are looking forward to returning in September 2011.

We just stayed one night as Gocek is about 30 mins from Dalaman airport and we had an early flight. The location of the hotel is really nice and the buildings and pool were lovely. We didn't have chance to try food and didn't see a menu anywhere.

The outside paths are very nice, but be careful when moving round in the dark as there are some steps which are not too well lit.

In October, I booked a single room for a single night at Hotel Forest Gate but I decided to extend my stay as it was so beautiful and in very comfortable surrounding – on first glance the hotel is in the heart of nature and the wonderful smell of the pine forest, I didn't want to leave. I was the only guest staying for first two days and there was another couple the third day. So I had the best service and felt a little spoilt. An excellent clean room, it was actually a double room but I had a free upgrade because the room was available, fresh towels everyday and the breakfast was too big for me so I was never able to finish it all. The omelettes and fried eggs were delicious and gave me the protein I need to start my day under the sun. Swimming pool was lovely to relax by and listen to the smooth sounds of Buda bar and the bar was very well stocked and looks lovely. The staff was very helpful, they waited on me hand and foot. I am planning to go back this September again. This time with my friends, I am looking forward to see Ender, Ayfer and others again.

Great hotel - clean, simple and very friendly staff. Great that it is in a forest and not by any through roads making it very tranquil.
