You could not be disappointed by this hotel. It is great value for money. Clean, well kept grounds, great (professional and friendly) staff. Three pools to choose from. We loved the bubble pool the best. Relaxing areas around the hotel - comfortable chair swings, seating up to four, small patios outside blocks with Hammocks and sun loungers if you don't want to join the throng. Open and airy restuarant buffet, with large and stylish outdoor eating area. The gym is included in the all inclusive price, as is the sauna and steam room and the air conditioning in the rooms. You do have to pay to use the in room safe, but there are double locked safety deposit boxes at reception that are probably cheaper.
Free wifi in reception and around the bubble bar. Reception is best used early morning. Nightlife in Gumbet is most of the night, so the hotel reception is alive with people until gone 4 in the morning.
It really was a very pleasant surprise, as I have stayed in four star hotels that could learn from this one.
Great week and I return.
One thing, don't use the spa that is attached to the hotel.. It is very expensive. when you go for a hamam, they offer good quality massages, reflexology, hair treatments, manicures, pedicures much more cheaply.
For families (the quietest at night), the best rooms are on the ladybird bar side of the hotel towards the beach. The reception are very accommodating with rooms and if you request a room change to the one allocated they do not disappoint, without remonstration. Next day changes are available if you have a preferred room that will become available.
The food is of very good quality all day,every day. Both the indoor and outdoor eating areas have buffets, so you don't all have to congregate at one set of counters. Custom made omelettes, fresh stonebaked pizzas, barbecued meats.
If you want real beach, hop on a local bus spend half an hour going to the cove just along the peninsula. You don't need to use the beach, which is man made and skinny, but has great water rides on offer (rings, banana, kite, waverunners, pedloes) at reasonable prices.
Great availabiity of excursion agents, who do not disappoint. Best hamam was at the Bronze Hamam (at the back of the bronze hotel).
Go to see Tyson (just across the road from the hotel), for main excursions. He is straight up, gives you time to decide and the prices are much cheaper than our tour operators. We did Dalyan, Ephesus, & horseriding through him. They all ran like a dream. The excursion company, pick you up from your hotel and take you to a meeting point, where people are split into coaches based on nationalities. Seems a bit of a fuss at first, but is great, as you get good guided information at the attraction and along the way.
If you get to visit the jewellery factory, it is very good quality stuff, but negotiation is not frowned upon. However, with the excellent quality of gold and gems, don't be ridiculous and ask for H Samuel or Argos prices.
