“Basic but brilliant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2011

We actually had our Honeymoon here! We thoroughly enjoyed our eleven night stay.

The Hotel basic, the room was a little old fashioned and the bathroom past its best. There was a problem with hot water and the comments about not bringing in drinks are true. All that said there are better rooms available for more money and we took out own kettle and drinks in to our room it is just a matter of being discreet.

The staff are excellent, they are friendly, helpfull and courteous like most Turkish people. Another Brit had a problem with his suitcase and the staff leant him a screwdriver and located some screws of the right size to fix it.

We used the breakfast area, the bar, the pool and had two evening meals at the hotel, could not find fault with anything. At the bar the beer was ice cold, the cocktails were mixed perfectly and the bar man was witty and entertaining with all the guests. The food in the restaurant was a credit to Turkish cuisine, though English and other dishes were available.

The Hotel is in a great location a short walk from the bars, restaurants and beach but far enough away that the noise from the town is dulled. The Dolmus goes from the road nearby in both directions to/from Bodrum.

Would recommend the Hotel to anyone, be realistic though and don't expect too much luxury, given how much you pay.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter, rooms upstairs at the front have the sea view

The beds were very uncomfortable, the shower barely worked, they played music till five in the morning (the walls were vibrating). We were aggressively confronted when taking a carrier bag holding some drinks bought from a shop round the corner back to our room, and told we had to buy them from the bar! The next day there was a sign in the hotel entrance area- drinks not to be brought onto the premises! The young male Turkish staff were all over a single,middle aged lady and her thirteen year old daughter like a rash, it was disgusting. Pick a different hotel

The service at this hotel is just amazing, it is run by a family and the boys in the family take on a huge part of the job and will do anything to help. We arrived early not expecting to be able to check in but it was not an issue at all and as soon as we needed help, internet, directions, they were there. The rooms are clean, maybe somewhat older, but in good shape. Make sure you ask for the AC remote if it isn't in the room. The breakfast was ok as well, I'm not too big a fan of the classic "Turkish breakfast" in the morning, but you get bread, marmalade, cereals, egg, and you can order cooked breakfast if you'd like. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone, service is excellent and friendly and the only reason to go somewhere else would be if you prefer a newer hotel/more stars/better equipped rooms and maybe in a quieter area, although if you go to Gumbet, quiet is probably not what you're looking for. For the price, Yildiz hotel it is very good value for money.

Well run family hotel in central location in Gumbet. 5 min walk to beach, failrly quiet although occassionaly some night noise.
Only had breakfast and this was basic but nice, very turkish and not european at all.
The service was excellent and they were obviously trying to please.
Rooms were basic, but clean and serviced daily.

Low budget Hotel(for the price of a breakfast)run by kind family,in the center of Gumbet,incredible service,outstanding dinners made by hotel s chef for very reasenable prices.Dolmus on the crossing outside the hotel to Bodrum,10 minutes,2.75 tl,nice pool,bar and pooltable etc everything is there.Downside for elderly people are the stairs and the noise from music from the center,but for those who enjoy the nightlife its the right location.Three minutes walk to the beach!I was cynical and fell in a bath of kindness,i will never forget this!Hans Kruithof

This is 3rd time staying at Yildiz and what a change this year!! Still a family run hotel but not as good as before! We were hounded every night to eat at the hotel and starred at when we came back to the hotel! Rose is the only person we knew there and did a fantastic job as always but family were staying at la rosa and we were more valued there!! Gumbet is a fantastic place to go, we have been going for 5 years and know a lot of fantastic people there!! But I won't be going back to Yildiz next year!

we where late getting to hotel due to delayed flights on arrival we where asked to fill in forms regarding farthers name and occupation? Never known this before Was then shown to are room only to be told wrong room ,we where then taken to the basement passing old matresses,cots,cupboards was dark and lonley down there on opening door to room it was dark and dirty very basic nothing like photos they show, so we put are cases down and the staff leave not asking was room ok. No balcony just small window on openig dirty curtain are veiw was brick wall which covered half the window and what can only be described as a chicken farm with ducks,cocks,hens,dogs which where very noisey as you can imagine. To the right of the window was house where the familys children where playing out with the chickens and dogs.The wall which separated us from chicken farm was actually used as a pathway for the family so we where unable to have curtains open never mind the window if they wernt looking in it was to noisey. Are bathroom was desgusting the toilet was wrapped in cellotape and what can only be described as urine stains all over it shower was tiny if you where on the larger size you would not be able to fit in it im small but i could not even bend over to wash lower half of body GOD HELP YA IF U DROP THE SOAP . We where also told, plus they have signs everywhere NO FOOD OR DRINK TAKEN TO ROOM which is crazy as turkey is vert hot u need to be able to have at least a bottle of water in ur room. OF COURSE WE ASKED TO MOVE ROOMS but where told manager in at 12noon so we WAITED and WAITED and WAITED evantually the staff moved only because we went on . Only this room was even smaller with no electricity SO WE ASKED TO MOVE AGAIN only to be told tomorrow we ended up seeing the hotel rep at 17.00hrs this was sat afternoon and we'd been awake since fri morning so we where dead on are feet , the hotel rep agreeded with us room was unexceptable but she was told no room till tomorrow so we endede up paying £60 per person to be moved to another hotel which jumped the cost of are holiday up by £120 without taxi money PLEASE PLEASE DONT STAY HERE we where lucky to have had extra money to move other people we meet there never and they where stuck there.We meet back up with the guests that stayed there on are coach bk home who said it only got worse.
