Eken Resort Hotel
Ranked #43 of 101 Hotels in Gumbet
Reviewed May 29, 2013

I have just arived back yesterday from a week stay at the Eken Resort Hotel, where I went with my Mum and I thought it was fantastic. The staff couldnt be any more helpful and friendly to absolutely everyone there (there was a mix of nationalities/ couples/ solo's/ groups and families), from the front desk to the cleaning and the waiting staff. The rooms were cleaned every day, and we had clean linen most days although it stated we would only get it 3 times. There was a good selection of food at every meal time that was constantly topped up during each session, and there was a great mix of lots of various salads and hot foods. The waiting staff also constantly cleared the dining area, so that your table was fresh if you wanted seconds, or if you came in towards the end of a meal sitting. They constantly came around the pool area cleaning up emptys, and tidying it at the end of each evening so that it was clean and tidy each day. The bar area was nice and they hosted a Turkish night of music and dance one of the evenings which was great fun. There was a snack bar which served burgers and chips between meal times if you fancied it and cakes served during the afternoon.There is a Turkish Bath on site which is excellent value, and a relaxing way to start the break, and a mini market if you need anything (not that we did!) that is open from early to late. Even though we arrived at midnight (cut off time for free all inclusive drinks) They took our bags to our room offered us soup if we were hungry and gave us a large glass of wine each. We were looking for a relaxing, clean and friendly last minute all inclusive holiday in the sunshine, and the Eken Resort surpassed our expectations, and this seemed to be the view of all the other guests we chatted to during our stay. Gumbet is a developing area, but its only 10 mins walk from Bodrum, and you are 2 mins from the beach which looks pretty lit up at night with hammocks to relax on. Would definately recommend this hotel.

We have been on several all inclusive holidays in other countries although this was our first in Turkey. We would have expected free towels for sunbeds or beach, safety deposit box, mini bar. ice cream for children and mini club. Room smelled musty. No shaver point in bathroom, No hairdresser or mini market as stated in brochure. Pool bar closed on an afternoon had to use terrace bar, if mobility problems this caused a problem. Excellent variety of food although repetative. No one should go hungry, Staff friendly and helpful. Location good. Would go again.

I have today returned from Bodrum /Gumbet after what was supposed to be a chilling relaxing week for myself and a friend before returning to work.I didn't book the Eken Resort Hotel and to that matter would never have looked at it in the first place.
I booked a hotel on then end of the Peninsular, one one side overlooking the harbour and the castle at Bodrum and the other side overlooking a quiet select cove.
For reasons to which I am trying to get to the bottom of still I was relocated to the Eken without notification or apology from the tour company, to sum it up it was Abysmal and no way comparable to the 4 Star resort that it was supposed to be and that I had visited previously.
Arriving very late we were shown to the room, which to be fair was clean and tidy albeit very old fashioned, the view from the overgrown, dirty balcony including 2 very old dirty chairs, was a badly maintained overgrown garden area and a building site, including JCB and refuse vehicle! (yes I have the video)
The photos on the website do not reflect the hotel as it stands today. From the pool the view is now obscured by a rather tatty tennis court and then approx. another 700+ metres walk to the small beach.
There is no pretty scenic view showing the beautiful islands in the distance as the area is now completely built up around.
The restaurant had no tablecloths only basic tables, paper place sheet advertising the hotel and looked straight out onto the basic pool area.
No toaster, no fresh fruit choice of yoghurts, freshly prepared eggs, omelettes, pancakes etc. as is the standard norm for hotels.
The sun terrace was covered in the folding artificial grass that was a safety risk as it had become curled up in places, a decorative touch in the middles of the area was a pile of sun loungers covered in plastic covering that held water when it rained.
Don't even get me talking about the gym .....or the Turkish Hammam /Spa .
As a lasting touch the hotel that I had booked was ADULT ONLY this has families with small kids not what I wanted at all.
Needless to say I stayed the 1 and only night and was quickly relocated yet again to a more improved hotel.

Small personal hotel, ideal for couples and groups of friends.

All inclusive facilities were really good, the food was extremely tasty and the selection extensive.

The staff were helpful and friendly. We did encounter problems with the air conditioning in some of our rooms but the staff were helpful and tried to resolve this.

The hotel is close to the beach and all the action in Gumbet. However at this time of year I found it quiet and peaceful. Could be a little more noisy in the height of season.

Overall a brilliant 4 day break was had by our group and we would re-book to go again.

Just returned from the eken resort hotel where I enjoyed a totally chilled 4 night stay with 6 friends. Perfectly located within easy reach of the bars, restaurants, shops and beach. The hotel was spotlessly clean, food fantastic and staff friendly. Had a fantastic time and will definitely return again!!
