Just returned from a weeks holiday at the Palm Garden Hotel with two other girls.
Firstly, whilst researching holiday destinations it is quite clear that Gumbet is becoming more of a party location and with the hotel being so close to Bar Street, it is inevitable that you will be able to hear the clubs, especially as the hotel is on an elevated position which is typical of the area.
We arrived at around 10pm to a power cut but didn't let this dishearten us as most of the town experienced this. They did their best to make sure we felt welcome by escorting us straight to the restaurant using their phones as torches to make sure we could see.
We were also quite lucky with our rooms, very nice and modern, with the cleaners coming every day. We had a family room, with 4 beds rather than 3, however, other guests mentioned that when they had a shortage of beds it was sorted out quickly. Our aircon worked perfectly too and nothing was stolen from our room.
For what we paid (around £360 for a week all inclusive) we received good value for money. There was a large selection of food at all meal times, yes it got a little bit repetitive, but it all seemed to be fresh with the chefs cooking certain things in front of you. If you do get bored of the food eating out in the local area is very cheap (Shanghai Restaurant was very nice which is just outside and you can get discount as they come around the pool).
Entertainment was good, the animation team involved everyone, if you wanted to get involved it was easy. Deniz made sure EVERYONE was having a good time, not just girls which has been previously mentioned. Turkish people are just very friendly which some English people do not understand and so see it in a bad light. Sometimes it was a little bit loud (music played all day) around the family pool but there is also a quieter pool.
There's also a 24 hour shop which was really handy to buy bottles of water and snacks.
All in all, you get what you pay for, we had a really good holiday and would definitely go back considering the price. Would recommend it for young families or groups of friends as it is becoming a party destination.
