Reviewed September 2, 2013

Just returned from Bod Beach Resort and well,very disappointed.Some staff were very good and helpful but the management were simply over there heads no organisation They were so unprofessional and arrogant.No air con for two nights and the main road to Gumbet goes straight through the middle of the Resort,Do not book early thinking you will get the best rooms we booked 10 months early.One great thing the food was beautiful different choices every day.

Room Tip: make sure you don't have rooms road side,hence the no sleep rating.

Just returned from a week at this hotel. Our room was beside the relax pool, it was clean and spacious and the cleaners did an excellent job. We had no issues with cleaning or towels etc as stated in other reviews. The waiters at the restaurant were all very hard working, clearing dirty plates almost before we were finished. The food was ok, nothing exciting but enough variety to keep my two kids aged 13 and 10 happy. Shame ice cream was guarded and only allowed at meal times. Same with the bars they weren't particularly well stocked. The main pool bar had soft drinks and beer. They made cocktails but there was no drinks/cocktail menu it was a case of you having to tell the barman what to put in your cocktail. Disappointed at variety of drinks on offer especially at the relax pool,only drinks on offer were soft drinks or larger. The waiter there worked very hard and was very friendly, Ekrem. He even entertained our kids with card tricks and jokes withot being overly intrusive which we found some of the other staff to be, for example the guy running the turkish baths and the guy running the hairdressers walked around the hotel all day "encouraging" you to use the facilities was a bit of a pain.
Waterslides are a great feature and although there is a lifeguard at the top of the slides who does a good job trying to control exciting fearless kids from hurting themselves, there really should be another at the bottom of the slides. Kids were playing in the pool when they shoud have been told to get out before they were collided into by people coming down the slides. The pool is pretty small and I saw lots of people trip over the almost invisible steps to exit and the padding on the sharp corners was in need of repair - accidents just waiting to happen.

Something that really bothered our whole family was the amount of smokers in the hotel with very little consideration for non-smokers especially in the main restaurant. Every meal time was spoilt by people lighting up while we were still eating. Smoking should not be permitted in the restaurant. There is a small smokers balcony but this was rarely used.

The rooftop restaurant has lovely views and is much quieter than the main restaurant, again the food was ok and nice not to scramble with others over the buffet and wait in line for your food. The hotel should make more of the rooftop restaurant it was a much nicer place to dine.

We were unlucky enough to have a very rude ignorant Russian woman take a sun umbrella we were using one day by the relax pool, even though we were using it at the time and had just decided to take a quick dip in the pool, and there was even spare umbrellas elsewhere. She was angry rude and abusive swearing in front of my children saying that the items didn't have names in she could take what she wanted as the kids were in the pool, if we wanted to fight her for it she would "show us who she really was"... it was all rather rediculous behaviour for a grown woman. My husband told her in a calm rational manner that we were just there on holiday to relax, minding our own business and not wanting to fight with anyone but simply lie and read a book. To this she screamed at him "English pigs oink oink you should sit down now read your book and shut the [--] up!". Thankfully my husband remained calm and laughed this off and Ekrem came straight over with another umbrella and apologised. We thanked him and assured him we were ok and it was not his fault in any way. It did leave a bad feeling however and tainted what was otherwise an ok holiday.

The beach , although not run by the hotel, is awful, lots of empty plastic bottles and cans and big stray dogs walking around. Five minutes further along however it does get a bit nicer and we ate out a few times at Dennys where the food was delicious and the staff were extremely friendly.

Overall an ok holiday - we only booked a few weeks before we went so there wasn't much choice. I wouldn't rush back or choose to stay here again but on the whole it was a nice break with plenty of sunshine. Clean room although a bit basic. The thing that the hotel has going for it most is the staff who couldn't do enough to make our stay more pleasant they worked so hard and were so friendly.

I would like to share my experience of visiting the Bodrum Beach Resort hotel in Gumbet Turkey. I read some reviews before I went and were some what negative. I went with my family including my 77year old mother who is disabled and uses a wheel chair . There were 9 of us.
On arrival at 1am we were greeted by the reception staff with a nice glass of cold juice. They spoke good English and gave us 4 rooms in the same block near the pool and restaurant area. They gave one ground floor room for my mother for easy wheel chair access. The porter took all our luggage to the rooms . The hotel buffet restaurant was on the fisrt floor and the a la carte on the 3rd floor roof terrace. At first we were concerned as they were all steps and this would have made it difficult for my mother in wheel chair to visit the restaurants ,but the hotel management and staff were very helpful and let us use the staff only lift all the time.
The food in the buffet restaurant was very good quality with a huge choice during breakfast , lunch and dinner from veg to non- veg . Amazingly most of the hot dishes were cooked fresh in front of you by the chefs .There was hot dogs at 3pm and cakes at 5pm. The attitude of all the staff was very friendly and they could not do enough for you. The air conditioned rooms were cleaned daily with fresh towels supplied.
There was fun games during the day in the pool and not to forget the mini mini disco every evening for kids and good adult entertainment 4 nights a week.
The man who manages the Turkish bath was really nice and the baths is a must during your visit providing good Turkish foam bath to oil massage at cheap prices .So are the resident photograhers really friendly chaps and take amazing photos,
Overall brilliant hotel and service. I would go back ,

As we walked in at 3am we were greeted with drinks which was nice after the long flight, we were then shown to our room which wasnt what we requested as it was facing a wall. The room was clean and spacious and the air con was fab. Breakfast wasnt great as there was not much british food served and the food that was served wasnt great, there was always a good supply of bottled water and drinks. Lunch and dinner were much the same, food isnt great. Reception staff werent too helpful. Also got made to check out at 4pm which cost 75 tl and our coach transfer wasnt until 11pm which was a pain as we had no room for 7 hours. Location is good as there are lots of bars, shops and restaraunts just a short walk away and also really close to the beach. Overall we had a good stay, would go back and would recommend.

I travelled to the Bodrum Beach Resort with two friends in July 2013, check in was very quick and we were taken to our room. Once we got to our room we soon realised we had not been given a triple room which we had paid for, we could'nt even move around the room unless we were sat on our beds. We had to ring up around 10 times to get towells delivered to the room and in the end had to go to reception and complain (This happened everyday as the maids took the towells and never replaced them) this is when we realised that we had been put in a room right next to the main road which was always busy and made it hard for me to sleep in.

The food was edible but very bland and boring and pretty much the same thing everyday, we chose to eat out the last couple of nights just to get a decent meal.

The drinks at the bar were nothing special but the beer was very nice and easy to drink, one of the barman (bald bloke) seemed to have a really attitude problem and would ignore you half the time. He would also not give you more than one drink at a time even though there was three of us.

In our eyes the only two things that saved the hotel was the swimming pool/slides and the animation team. The pools were never too busy and the slides were good fun, the lifeguard was quite entertaining too.

The animation team especially Eda Biceroglu, she could never do enough for us and was always up for a laugh. Everynight she would get everyone together for a game of beer pong and then take us on a bar crawl each night, she was always keeping an eye on us and kept us out of trouble numerous times. We could honestly not thank her enough.

The hotel itself put no entertainment on for adults and I felt sorry for any couples that were there as they were forced to listen to childrens songs or sit in quiet. Most were forced to go out into Gumbet for drinks.

Personnely I would not stay in this hotel again but would happily come back to Gumbet as we loved it, the nightlife was so much more than we were expexting. Make sure you check out temple bar.

Room Tip: Make sure you request a room away from the road
