We were after two weeks of relaxation and boy did we get it! After trying multiple all inclusive holidays without finding a good one, we decided to go back to basics i.e. simple bed and breakfast and eating out.
The Gunes hotel and appartments suited us perfectly. The place is kept spotless and all of the staff (thank you Biram, Zaf,Oktay,Johnny and Buju) could not have been more helpful and pleasant.
The pool area is very pleasant with plenty of sunbeds with areas of shade if you want to get out of the constant sunshine.
The beaches are a fair way away at Oludeniz but this is not a problem as there is a "Dolmas" bustop(a CHEAP minibus service that runs every 3-4 minutes) about 100yds from the hotel.
We were quite content to spend most of the time at the pool as it was so easy and relaxing and the food available was always well cooked.
We ate in the hotel most nights, the seabass and seabream were to die for and usually cheaper than the numerous local (walking distance) eateries.
Beer was also the going rate.
We had a twin room which was a good size and a very effective and quiet air conditioner. If you book direct the air conditioning is included in the price.
There was a single shower room and toilet. We had a small balcony with an attractive view.
There are 2 room appartments also available which have cooking facilities and we will probably go for one of these WHEN we rebook for next year!
Most of the Brits that we met at the Gunes had been back on several occasions, one couple had been back 30 times! That must be a good indicator?
