“What a let down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

This was our 4th time in 5 years at this hotel. Going all inclusive BIG MISTAKE. Felt it was a case of got your money don't care how we treat you! One of our beds had only 2 legs on it, felt like sleeping on a cliff edge, the safe (which you pay extra for) could be picked up and walked round with. Said in brochure fridge would be restocked daily with water - it wasn't, only 1 bottle on arrival if you broke or lost that bottle had to purchase another. Only 3 members of waiting staff made you feel welcome, some of them smelt badly of B O, and their clothes were stained. Food not up to the standard it was when it did half board, so ate out a lot, which cost more money. We have always recommended this hotel to people at home & in Turkey, but we will not do so again. The only really good think about the Magnific is the Hammam staff - absolutely brilliant, they sorted my Husbands back out after sleeping on the disgusting bed for 2 weeks. - Bye the way the main desk & manager were of no help and did not sort any of our problems out. I emailed the hotel asking for specific rooms prior to going, they couldn't even be bothered to reply!

Room Tip: Make sure your bed is good no matter what room you are in! No point in saying which rooms are best a...

This Hotell has an excellent restaurant with great food and the most friendly staff!
A very proffessional atmosphere and clean dining areas.
The rooms are not as nice as the rest of the public areas of the hotell, and the lobby is quite small. Due to the good location in the center of Gümbet the music is quite loud from the barstreet, so make sure to bring earplugs if you're having an early night :)

I can really recommend this hotell.

Dear our guest, thank you very much for all your great compliments. I will pass your comments to all our staff as this is the greatest motivation for all of us. You can be assured that we will keep on working hard to deserve those nice words. Gümbet is described as a "lively resort" and we are unable to control noise not originated in our hotel. It was a pleasure to meet and serve you here, so please do not hesitate to contact me from info@themagnific.com for further help for your future vacations. It will be a great pleasure for us to serve you again. Best regards,

I stayed at this hotel with my mum and sisters as a family holiday, and it was a great place with the a fantastic swimming pool, but sadly, slightly ruined as the waiters were too forward and I felt like a bodyguard for my younger sisters. We had several waiters asking to take them clubbing although they knew one was only 13, so in my opinion, I would not go as an all girls holiday.

Room Tip: The further away from the street, the better.

I have just returned from my second trip to Turkey and both times I have stayed at Hotel Magnific. I found the staff to be extremley helpful and friendly, the food - a wide variety of delicious food, the rooms were clean and comfortable with clean towels and toiletries replenished daily.
The hotel is right on the beach of which there are bars and restuarants if you fancy a change from the hotel. The loacation is great for the nightlife and shopping.
Some of the rooms are quite close to a couple of the bars which play music until about 2am so if you are likely to be going away to sleep all holiday you may wish to request a room not so close by to these bars. however, if like me and my friends you intend to be partying until after 2am, this wont be an issue.

This holiday was like a dream to me and my mom!
Bodrum is very expensive, but gumbet is good if you are looking for a nice bag or something like that.
The hotel and staff were so good!
If you want a relaxed holiday, go to magnific.
Check in and chill out ;)

The Hotel is located in the centre of Gümbet so be prepared for all night music and loud parties. If you're lucky like us you'll get a room facing the sea or the inside garden so you'll have a much quiter night. Some of our group got rooms viewing on the street which is almost unbearable at night. Room change is only available for an extra charge of 7euro/prs/night. If you're preparing to book into this hotel, it's a must to ask for a room looking the garden/sea.
Other than this the quality of the service, rooms, food, poolside is above avarage. The seashore is a bit dirty because of cigarette remains, but the water is crystal clear. I would recommend it to anyone who likes busy nightlife at good price/quality rate. 4 points out of 5 considering the 4 star rating of the hotel.

We have been going to this hotel the last ten years although we missed last year. This is the first time the we were all inclusive. It was always bed and breakfast. The room we had was lovely and clean but it was tiny and the balcony was ridiculous as it was only two slats of wood that you could not stand on. The buffet was nice but could of done with a bit more variety. Myself and the girls are not pool people and love the beach. The beach connected to the hotel was not very clean lots of beer cans and broken glass although the staff tried to clean them there were still bits of glass around. The majority of staff was friendly and I think they should give plastic cups for the beach rather than glasses. The entertainment was very limited and it put us off staying in the hotel at night. We made our own fun. We are not sure if we will return to this particular hotel but we will be going back to Gumbet.
