Hotel Serpina
Ranked #16 of 101 Hotels in Gumbet
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We returned from 2 weeks at the Hotel Serpina yesterday and already want to go back.I was sceptical about the very positive reviews but now can also recommend the hotel.
The staff were enthusiastic very smart and well turned out and helpful at all times at the bar and mealtimes Iloo, Engin,Songull and Eren and Chef Ali. The food was great and fresh with 2 choices at evening meal. Breakfast I thought was fine with cereals, egg in shell, cheese, fresh fruit, bread tea and coffee and juice. A cooked item was different each day pancakes, omelette, scrambled egg and tomato with cheese on top. This is only served up until 9.30 and we missed it frequently, get up if you want it ! Some of our teenagers in the party thought that there was not enough variety, Chef Ali would make anything they wanted pizza, chips etc, they could not have ben more helpful.
Pool large great for swimming and so clean. Sun beds always available.
Rooms adequate . Air-con is extra 70 Lira per week , but very uncomfortable without it.
Adam the technical manager was outstanding working day and night to keep the pool treated late night and early morning and mending airconditioning units frequently plus sorting electrics and plumbing, What a star!
Ali the manager ran a tight ship and was kind helpful and managed to introduce us to the real Turkey also playing his traditional string instrument and singing traditional songs with the help of the staff group, on the second Turkish night a friend was recruited to play the turkish violin also. The Turkish night was excellent with high quality folk dancers and belly dancer. The staff joined in dancing and singing Engin was a wow!
Entertainment was 2 nights a week and we saw a synchronised swimming group and an African dance and acrobatic troupe.
Only niggle all drinks were extra except at breakfast so the bar bills became expensive and notices about bringing in drinks were prominently displayed at the door. I think that one bottle of water should be provided with meals purchased per 2 or 4 people and/or coffee after a meal .Maybe air con for the first night when it is very hot?
The hotel is about a 5 min walk to the beach the sea bed is stony and I used sandals to swim in.
Hotel close to shops and beach but is tranquil and quiet with the faintest sound of the call to prayer when sitting by the pool to remind us that we were in Turkey.
Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so happy, Pauline, Jon, Adam, Alex, Gary and Wendy.

Room Tip: Pool rooms at the end of the pool opposite to the road will be quieter. No stairs to the ground flo...

Lovely small hotel. Rooms clean but very basic. Beds could do with being changed. Staff are very helpful and the smallness of the hotel meant there were always sun beds available. Very close to restaurants close enough to nightlife if wanted but far enough away not to hear any of it at night. Minibus stops outside hotel to go to bodrum only cost £1 pet person for single journey to bodrum. Would stay here again if they give the rooms and beds some TLC.

Got to hotel early hours receptionist was unfriendly, there was no warm welcome. Once in our room, which was clean, but the air conditioner didn't work. We had to tolerate that for 2 days, and probably longer if we hadn't insisted on been moved. Breakfast was appalling , we've been to Turkey before, so understand its Turkish breakfast, which we don't mind, but we do expect it to be fresh, this was anything but, not even fresh fruit. We kept hearing how good chef Ali was, well we think he needs to attend breakfast. We won't be returning to the Serpina

Room Tip: Do not go find another hotel the noise bad on every floor

Just returned from a 2 week stay at the Serpina and it was great. Staff at the hotel were really friendly. Bar staff would walk around the pool and bring you whatever you wanted - I didn't leave my sunbed in the day, it was great! Elgin was really friendly and was always on hand to assist with anything. Also the man who cleans the pools every day was really friendly too, always saying hello and making jokes. Ersan another friendly/helpful member of staff. My only downside to the hotel (and it's not really a downside) is that the drinks/food were quite a bit more expensive than in the bars restaurants.

Rooms were basic and need a bit of TLC but as we didn't spend much time in there that wasn't such a big deal. Our air con broke one night and straight away someone was in to fix i - very helpful!

Pool area was nice and clean. There were many sunbeds, even if you were to get up around 11am there were still plenty available. Had a nice friendly atmosphere. As it's a small and friendly hotel everyone spoke to each other and had a laugh.

Location is great, 5-10 minute walk from all the main bars/restaurants. There is a really nice restaurant next door to the hotel called Family Door. Food/drink were very nice as well as being cheap.

Would definitely go back to Gumbet/Hotel Serpina - already looking into returning next year.

Lovely holiday!

Returning guest to this hotel and it was as good as the first time we stayed, made very welcome by Ali (boss) and his hard working staff,Engin (bar manager) oli (head waiter) and not forgetting Ali chef for all the wonderful dishes he prepared for us, went half board for the second time at the Serpina and the food was delicious well prepared and plenty of it, relaxing time wish we had booked for 2 weeks, hotel is well placed with dolmus bus stopping outside to take you to Bodrum, beach 500 metres away and plenty of bars and restaurants nearby,if you choose this Turkish Delight of a Hotel you won't be disappointed

Have just got back from a 10 day stay at hotel serpina. We are 3 friends who wanted a holiday where we could relax but also enjoy a cheeky little night out once in a while. The hotel had a lovely friendly atmosphere and guests were made to feel very welcome. The pool was lovely and the service was exceptional. Breakfast was what we expected - could have done with some bacon! The hotel was very clean. Had great entertainment including Turkish night. We would definitely recommend the serpina to families, couples or groups of friends. We had a brilliant holiday and are very sad to be home. Katy, Christa and Ginge

We are just back from a 2 week stay at this small and friendly hotel. The reception staff were very helpful and quick when we were checking in and took our cases to our room. The rooms are spacious and very clean, as is the bathroom. The breakfasts are typical in Turkey, eggs, crusty bread, cheese, odd days omelettes n pancakes (would like more of these). The staff are very helpful and go out of their way to make your holiday. Well done Engin and your staff. Mr Ali you have a lovely hotel. We hope to see you all again next year. Very impressed with Gumbet. The hotel is very well positioned. Mickey and Marie.
