“Enjoyable - if you make it so!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Okay so here's what everyone always says about hotels in Turkey - they aren't based on the same star rating that we have in the UK/US! Seriously, stop complaining about it.

I've visited Turkey a good few times and this is one of the nicer hotels I've been to.

The good points; it's clean, bed was comfortable, we had an amazing view from our room balcony, the pool area was quiet, lots of sunloungers, free wifi in lobby, gorgeous views. Someone took our bags to our room - this is a hard task given the long walk to the rooms from reception. Free bus to nearby beach.

The bad points: No wifi in rooms, it's NOT a beachfront hotel, LONG walk to town, location is far out, the stairs from the rooms to the reception are horrendous! Our shower was leaky and made a big mess in the bathroom - not the safest.

Everything else: The food was okay. It wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible. The desserts were pretty terrible but everything else was fine. Lots of salad, vegetables, always some meat dishes. They would cook kebabs and chicken some nights outside too. There are cats, like in a lot of foreign countries, so if this bothers you you should consider it. The staff were mostly really helpful and nice. We didn't drink a lot, despite being all inclusive, but if you are a heavy drinker then you probably won't appreciate their spirits/wine/beer selection although for us it was great.

We had a great time, we really loved lounging by the pool, the views were incredible as you can see from my pics. If you want a relaxing holiday and don't want to pay a high price then it's perfect for you. We went to the beach, into the town and parasailing, but other than that we did NOTHING, which is exactly what we wanted :)

Room Tip: If you want to be close to the pool, get a room in the 600s

I stayed at the Rosso Verde, Oct 2012 - it is definitely not a 4 star hotel and would be best compared to an almost 2 star hotel in the UK. It isn't over expensive, so you do get what you pay for and this hotel is best used as a base...just sleep here and have a few drinks before you go out and eat somewhere else every night.

The food is awful, I'm used to limited choices as a vegetarian anyway, but they just put out the same crap night after night after night. Salad, chips, salad, chips and a bit of watery tomato soup.

Beach - What beach! Better of taking the free shuttle to Bitez instead.

The staff however are very friendly and helpful, it's not their fault where they work. The only gripe you will have is that whoever is running the Spa section will hound and harrass you for massages. Just be blunt and/or get up and walk away, never buy your treatments at the hotel as there are plenty of local places in the town centre or Bodrum that do it much cheaper. This also applies to excursions, visit an excursion travel shop in the Gumbet town centre and totally just ignore your travel rep when he visits you.

I had a great week away and met some great people, but if you're looking for good food, a good beach, and somewhere spotless this is not it... better off travelling out of the hotel to eat somewhere else, and use your all inclusive drinks package to get merry before going clubbing.

Sadly expect a cold night as there are no blankets or quilts to sleep on, just what looks like a thin dogs throw to put over yourself at night. I would go back to the same area again, but not this hotel again - the rooms are very dusty and hardly ever cleaned. My bedding wasn't changed once, and made me even wonder if it had been changed at all from the last occupant.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Rosso Verde. It was barely a 2* let alone a 4*! The main entrance/lobby of the hotel is very modern and the wifi was really fast. This is where my praise for the hotel ends. We were given clean sheets once in the week, no toilet rolls were provided, despite asking several times. The hotel is set in the mountain, meaning the reception is a 5 minute hike from the rooms/pool/restaurant. The entertainment was non-existant, we were told it was because it was the end of the season. There was also no music or childrens activities for the same reason. The food was basic and pretty much the same every day. If you like chips and salad you will be fine. This is supposidly a beach front hotel, after another hike down the mountain you will be very disappointed by what you find. Our room (601) barely had enough room for the 2 of us, let alone our suitcases and tolietries! There was no sound proofing at all, so all week we were kept awake by the people upstairs, music out side the hotel and general noise from other guests as our room was in a walk way to the bar/restaurant. The pool area was small, but as the hotel wasnt busy this wasnt too much of a problem. The pool was very deep tho, so if you cant swim/ just want to paddle you will have to stay in the kids pool! There is an on-site Turkish bath. DO NOT let him bully you into booking something as soon as you arrive. His prices are over-inflated and he can be quite intimidating. The staff at the hotel were pleasant enough, some speaking better English than others. All inclusive - drinks - if you like vodka and gin you will be fine. A trip to Bitez beach is recommended and the Turkitrez market was a good morning out.

We have just returned from a week @ Rosso, rooms were very clean, and cleaned regular throughout our stay. Staff were very friendly especially night receptionist Epek. Had a really great stay here. Food was a bit repetitive, but not bad, and only fault is rooms are not soundproofed at all so you hear everything!

The entrance and lobby area of the hotel was very nice and modern, however, when you get shown to your room, they did not match the entrance and were very basic. Had to complain to reception on arrival as the room was dirty, damp and flies everywhere. They were quick to assist, but advised the hotel was fully booked and could not change our room, they did send the 'cleaning technical' team to our room and mopped the floors for us.

I know you don't go on holiday to stay in your room all day but to me, it is important that I feel comfortable and that it is clean (especially the bathroom). Having stayed in a couple of 4* hotels earlier in the year (albeit in Asia), this hotel did not match the standard whatsoever. I would give it a 2* maximum. The bathroom smelt damp, there was no place to put any toiletries and the shower leaked and had mould all around it. Oh and you only get a thin blanket to sleep under! no proper duvet!

The pool area was small and very cramped, we had to be up at 7am to make sure we got some decent sunbeds, generally by 8am they are all taken. The snack bar by the pool was ok, and the food wasn't very consistent. I found I loved the pasta dish on my first day but everytime I ordered it after that it was completely different and not as nice. Most of the staff are miserable and failed to even raise a smile at any point in the day, however you do empathise given the hours they work and some staff were there from morning till late at night.

The food was ok, but it was pretty much the same each day, the Chinese restaurant was a joke - it's only included in the all inclusive for one visit and was supposed to be 'a la carte' however when we arrived, everyone was booked in for the same time (not an issue as there was only 5 tables) and you do not get a choice at all! Your courses are brought to you whether you like it or not, I also didn't know spaghetti was chinese food and the food was served cold. One of the other tables actually walked out as they couldn't eat it. Suffice to say I was starving that night as by the time we finished our meal, the all inclusive dinner had finished.

Gumbet itself is absolutely lovely and Turkey is beautiful, if you value great service, i definitely wouldn't recommend this hotel, however in the bars and restaurants in Gumbet are really friendly and make you feel very welcome and you can get great service from there instead which is a shame given it's all inclusive.

Even if it was a 'cheap' holiday (which I don't think it was THAT cheap) a 4* still should have set standards, would definitely recommend Turkey and Gumbet but would look for a different hotel.

1st room very small however was moved to the best room at the hotel 617, happy with room.allinclusive drinks are poor not much choice,food on the whole average plenty to choose from you would not go hungry but not our taste.lesson learnt self catering way forward. chinese resturant was a joke cold food not chinese walked out. snack bar food also cold not cooked,most of staff are great cant fault weather. hotel on hill lots of steps but good views worth the climb, boat trip well worth doing.

Room Tip: go as a group and share larger rooms, 617,616,615,,our the best rooms,pool view and sea views these...
