“A two to three star but not too bad for a cheap holiday”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2011

My partner and I are in our late twenties however booked this hotel with club 18-30 as it was cheap. The hotel has a mixture of guests however dont stay here if you want peace and quiet. We are not quiet by any means but other guests did party and drink through the night and this would continue until 05:00.

We were given a basic room and I have previously read how the rooms were damaged and untidy. Ours was fine but this might have been one of the better rooms. We did have to ask for our towels and bedding to be changed.

The shower had a mind of it's own and was either freezing or extremely hot!

The location of this hotel is excerllent, the pool is nice and the staff friendly. We had no problems but kept our cases locked. Other guests had money stolen from their rooms when we were there but the deposit boxes are really cheap.

This hotel is fine if you want a cheap holiday and I was really worried after reading reviews. They say you cannot bring food or drink in but we did, with no problems.

Drinks and food are double what u would pay in a shop in town so we bought the odd one before we went out to keep the owners happy.

The red dragon and divers restaurant were very good. Excellent food and staff very friendly( they don't hassle you to go in). Drinks and food can also be haggled for. Over all pleased for what we paid

Me and 8 friends have just got back from this hotel. When we got there at 9am we arrived to some people outside telling us how bad our rooms were going to be but nothing could have prepared us. When we walked in we found blood on the walls, brown marks and blood all over our sheets, dirty floor, windows that didn't open and do not even get my started on bathroom (if you can call it that!!)

We demanded our bedding to be changed as soon as we saw it which the staff did not seem happy about but i would not make my worst enemy stop in that room the way we found it! All week we were complaining that our toilet did not flush but still it was never fixed. Luckily we were able to use our friends next door. Our room was cleaned only once whilst we were there, we ended up having to clean it ourselves which is unexceptable!!

Fortunately me and my friends booked with the 18-30's company which allowed us to have a great time as we met some amazing friends who were also staying in the hotel and Gumber (bar street) was a great night out!

The outside and pool area is not too bad and the big cushions are very comfy to sleep and sunbathe on.

We booked for bed and breakfast but i was nearly sick when i saw the breakfast as it was covered in insects and it was hard break, cucumber and tomatoe, oh and soggy cereal.

The staff are not friendly or helpful so we didn't even bother trying to ask for their help.

After a few days we accepted that things were not going to improve so we just got on with it and spent as little time as possible in the hotel.

Drinks are expensive in the hotel, food is ok just do not eat the fried eggs as my friends were unwell from them not being cooked properly.

The best resteraunt in Gumber is China Town or Avaliva (i think) just down from the hotel..both great value too!

The beach is very nice with good lively bars and great watersport fun.

Boat trips are recommended, bars such as shakers, outback, club mood etc GREAT!

Watch out for the turkish men .. they do not understand/except the word 'NO!'

I don't normally complain on my reviews and moaning ones normally really annoy me but this hotel really does need to be closed down or have a lot of money doing it up!

Go to Gumbet-it is great especially for young adults full of amazing people, cheap drinks and food and very hot! :)

My self and my partner are just back from the hotel can- aug 2011. We stupidly went with the club 18-30's as we are both 28 and 32 mainly because it was cheaper! When you get to the hotel you are asked to give your passports and you will get them back the next day- however if you pay for the air conditioning in the room you surprisingly get them back straight away.. We were then told that our rep would be arriving within the next ten minutes to talk to us about excursions, nightlife etc Giving that we didn't arrive until well after 2 in the morning, and we were exhausted, the rep didn't show up until 45 minutes later! The room was unbeliveable and not in a good way!! The toilet seat was broken off, some of the light's didn't work, the dressing table chair was broken, the window was broken, and the shower was either really hot or freezin with no happy medium!! and no pressre at all we had to wash in the sink for the week! Also the cleaners don't knock they just open the doors so god forbid if you were changing! We had booked a water park trip with our rep on the first night and had to go and look for her, as we barely seen her! as to get the tickets, and she couldn't even give us the right directions as in where to get the bus! we had to find it out for ourselves! I would reccomend booking through med blue which is on bar street as the gave us an amazing deal on 4 trips! Bazil is a great guy and would do anything for u! They even took us in one of their cars to the tues market even though we had missed the earlier bus and stopped half way to let us take pictures and collected us the minute we phoned! :) The prices for food and drink in the hotel is shocking! Way too expensive! and they dont exactly give you big portions! Don't expect an english breakfast either as you get a turkish one lol! which was bread, cheese, olives, and hard bolied eggs! And the tea was really strong! Thank god for burger king! which is down along bar street its really cheap and the staff are brilliant! The beach is really small- just a little strip and is just made up of stones, although the ice creams along the prom are to die for! roughly 3 turkish lira for one :) The only thing I can say about the hotel would be the pool- If you are a family I would seriously say stay away! And if you like your sleep! As every night at 4 we were woken up by the club 18-30's coming back fighting and shouting and putting on loud music!

Arrived around 3am in morning and had requested a balcony and pool view, when we arrived at reception the woman gave us a key to a room and I said does this have a balcony as I requested one she said yes.. Got to the room to find there was none so then got moved room again. When we got in air con didn't work which we had just paid for for a fortnight, they spent half an hour trying to fix in and nothing so we got given a fan and told it would be fixed the following day.. The next morning we had to ask 4 times when it would be getin fixed until it was finally done!! Went into bathroom and pulled shower curtain and the whole pole fell on top of us.. Not to mention the toilet is in the shower!!!!! The food in the pool bar is horrible! altho I think they got a different chef from year before as we had been told! Stone cold chips and half cooked food! No-one in the hotel speaks good english.. So annoying when u need something!!! All staff lazy and try to do as little as possible to help! Pool bar very expensive! Not aloud to bring ANY food or drink in from outside the hotel.. Always someone keeping an eye out and they take it of you if they see you with something from outside! If u travel with 18-30 be careful as rep will only speak to u when she's looking money for something. Trys to get u to buy all the excursions and a lot of people fell for it and ended up skint within 3rd day of their holiday! Worst hotel I've ever stayed in and def would not recommend it!!

when we got to this hotel & seen our room we wanted to turn & go home again. there was mould on the walls, the sheets were dirty & they classed a shower was a shower head attached to the wall at waist level - no curtain or base for the water so evrytime we went in the toilet seat was soaking aswell as the floor!! in fairness they changed the sheets & towels everyday to replace them with more dirty sheets & towels. you couldnt even bring a friend into the hotel for 5 mins they just kicked them out!!! ive slummed it in many a student house but they were a hilton compared to this suposedly 3 star dirt hole!! only good thing i could say is the pool was clean!! aside from the hotel gumbit was amazing, people lovely, any restaurant we ate in was amazing & nightlife was never ending some mornings we werent in til 8am!!! would defo go back just not to that hotel - it ruined the start of the holiday to think this is what we had for 7 nights but thankfully we got on with it & hada fantastic time in gumbit itself :-)

The staff are fantastic here I've just been on a lads holiday with 6 other friends and they don't mind the noise at all. I wouldn't reccomend this hotel to anybody who wants a quiet holiday as when I was there everybody was awake till atleast 4 am everynight. The rooms are VERY simple and small. The bathroom is TINY, therefore you can S**t shower and shave at the same time! HIGH 5. The bed sheets are clean and are replaced everyday. The pool area is FANTASTIC! The pool itself its big enough and the lounge area is great. The Massive cushions Located in the lounge area are great and they are comfier than the beds in the rooms so most of my freinds spent most of our nights sleeping on them which the owners don't mind. There is a ping pong table and a pool table which are great when you want to get out the sun. The bar is expensive but its great to chill by the pool with a bottle of Efes (Which gets boring and tastes awful). The one problem we found is that the Maids and cleaners like to steal Cameras as 3 went missing in a week alone. One maid was proven guilty of stealing a camera out of one of the girls rooms so leave them in a locked suitcase. Also hide alcohol because if they find it they take it and sell it behing the bar as my friend found out when he lost his southern comfort and seen it behind the bar 2 hours later LOL. The hotel is located in a fantastic area with lots of shops and places to eat. I wouldn't recomend the 2 Lira Kebab (80p) as its 2 lira for a reason. It tastes like S**t. Visit Ali Baba Kebab for a 12 Lira Large Lamb kebab there FANTASTIC. Overall a very simple hotel but its what we expected when we booked an 18-30 holiday. The food inside the restaurant is not very good and some of my friends had problems with the meat being cold etc. Other than that I wouldn't let the other reviews sway you away as I had the best time of my life and so did everybody else who went.

i have just had my daughter crying on the phone about this ?hotel. it seems to be not the place you would like to go to enjoy. if your asthmatic, forget it. the rep seems to be a waste of time and not interested in the saftey of her clients, and they booked with a major uk leading tour firm, dont be fooled by the sale jargon.
