“fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2006

The Agar is without doubt the most comfortable, clean, well kept and above all else friendly place we have ever been. The staff are amazing. Genuinly friendly (every one of them) and so hard working. Nothing was ever a bother to anyone. Our room was serviced regularly with clean towels and bedding, even fresh cut flowers arranged on our beds! The whole apartment complex is maintained so well; always clean and tidy and so pretty with all the beautifully tended gardens. Good food is cooked to order in the restaraunt, the bar is well stocked and not too pricy and to entertain our easily bored 14yr old son a pool table and willing staff for him to play against. The Agar is situated just far enough from the resort centre with it's busy bar street to be peacful and quiet but not too far away either (just 5 mins walk). Closer still is Gumbets original main street which has much nicer and cheaper places to eat then bar street. The Agar is just the perfect place to holiday.

I am just back from Turkey a couple of days ago and although i didnt stay in Agar apartments i went over to visit family every day and i would have to say that these Apartments are absolutely fantastic. we were greeted with the friendly faces of Fred, Mehmet and Bob the Barman. from the moment we walked in we were treated like royalty.

i would definately recommend these apartments to all people, young, old, single or married with children as all waiters make the effort to become friends with everyone.

i loved Agar so much that i am booking again for September of this year and i cant wait to see all friendly faces again.

I've literally just returned from an amazing couple of weeks peace and tranquility(when I needed it), fun (on tap) and friendliness I cannot begin to describe.
Having found the holiday in an agency that was "going for a song", we went prepared to expect "average". How wrong could we be!
The appartments were immaculately clean and smelt wonderful. The linen and towels were changed regularly but the bedding was unusual - wait and see - and towels rather hard (this is the only thing I can find to complain about!)

The owners and their staff were on hand at any time to chat with, play dominoes with, dance with us and generally help us to feel welcome and valued. The owners and some staff needed a little more English, but with their gestures, smiles and occasional interpreter help we manged more than adequately.

Key members of staff include Umit (which means Hope) who was thus called Bob; he was the barman. Fred saw to our food orders, from anywhere, at what seemed like any time, Hussain and Mehmet who didn't speak much English seemed to enjoy spending time with the guests just smiling.

They served food from about 8am til - goodness knows what time, with a couple of hours break for the chef in the afternoon. We can recommend the Marble Steak, and we would love to know how they made their mushrooms taste quite so delicious - try them!

We made some fabulous friends and everyone swapped email addresses and I sincerely believe this is one bunch of holiday friendships that was last.

Many of the guests had been before or had the appartments recommeded and we had regular visitors from guests who had stayed there previously but who were unable to get in this time.

We will certainly return - just as soon as possible.

I've posted three pictures but don't know if they will link to this review.

My family and i have been staying at these apartments now for 4 years and thats were i met my soon to be husband omer. These apartments are fantastic for all age ranges and have every facility on site or close to hand. These apartments in my eyes are the best in gumbet and it's all down to the hard working staff.Fred,mike,firat,niall and fatma yous are all stars .And as for the last review saying ladies beware of omer well he's doing his national service until next may, has transfered to a new hotel in gumbet for summer 2006 and is also getting married in september 2006. so ladies ignore that comment theres nothing to be aware off!!!

we went to the agar about 4 years ago and have been about 5 or six times since, we can,t rate this hotel highly enough, we always said what,s the point of going back to the same place and look at us now. everything about this hotel ia great we can,t fault it one single bit, although the previous staff have gone and we miss our friends, bob, micheal (tolga), elvin and chef we can visit them in bodrum.
ladies beware of omar we have seen what he gets up to when Ashley is not there.
we are off to the dominican republic in 2 weeks but given a choice my choice would be the agar.
this is the cleanest friendliest place to stay..... enjoy your holiday.

agar apartments are fab to stay in . all the staff are really friendly even if they couldn't speak much english . the maids were great and as a special touch on the first week they decorated our bed with flowers which was lovely so a big thank you to them . the food is great and is all freshly made so it will take a while but is worth waiting for . the pool was great fun especially when you got to push the bar staff in which fred and sedat were easy to get in but mike was a challenge for everybody . the bar itself was fab as they could actually understand what you wanted and it was quite a good reasonable price . i made loads of friends there which ill always keep in touch with and they've all said they go back as well !! the pool , bar and restaurant area was always spotlessly clean and everything was cleaned everyday . they always made you feel welcome and respected there and i think many people would love to go back . only one real problem was the music which mike always insisted on turning up loud so when your trying to sleep you get no sleep but by 1 or 2 o'clock it had gone off so many people could actually get some sleep . Fred , Sedat and Mike were fantastic people and were always really helpful and also have really lovely personality's and you can get on really well with all of them and im missing them loadz . everything about the apartments are great and if you were to go to turkey i would reccomend you go there . so i want to make a big huge special thanks to mike , sedat and fred who i love so much and i will be back next year for another great holiday xxxxx
