We spent 10 days in Gumbet, at this hotel, returning a week ago. We were determined to enjoy our holiday, but would definitely not recommend the hotel unless you’re Turkish. We had a lovely room, with a great view from the balcony, but the bed linen was a joke with two single sheets on a double mattress, crossways, very rough honeycomb throws, single, not double, for covering and pillowcases too small for the pillows – which were bunched up and forced inside – it was like lying on a beach ball, I took pillowcases from spare pillows and put 2 on each pillow – one from each end. Cleanliness is a word not in the dictionary of the management of this hotel, and that is from where the problem seems to emanate. The staff are mainly young, definitely untrained, trying to jobs which they don’t know how to do correctly, and speaking only Turkish. During our stay of 10 days not one dining table was wiped. I was given wine in a glass which was literally rinsed in cold water (no soap) and shaken – it was still very dirty – more than once – but I was fortunate, at least it was rinsed. The entertainment was so poor it was embarrassing to watch, and our room was cleaned once – the bed was straightened – not made, and fancy towel arrangements made with flowers and petals – but no cleaning. We got clean sheets the day before we were leaving, but had plenty of towels – not sure if they were clean or just from another room though. The food was repetitious, but there was a good variety provided that you like salads etc, and the quality was passable. However towards the end of the holiday food was being re-presented at several meals. The holiday tour representative young Ali was one of the pleasant things about the holiday. He is a most helpful young man and a credit to his company. We went on a couple of his organised trips which we thoroughly enjoyed. Although we would not recommend this hotel the area of Gumbet and Bodrum is well worth visiting, and we will probably return some time in the future.
