Me and my best friend went here from the 2nd May to the 9th May on a last minute break! The hotel was very clean except for the first night we got there we woke up to ants all around the side of our bed... we packed our things and they put us into a better room were we was more than satisfied with. the rooms were big and the bathroom was a good size to! As Claire said in one of the comments below ... we have never sat on a toilet so high !! we could swing our feet !!
The hotel staff were lovely , they couldn’t do enough for you, and the food was edible... there isn’t alot of choice if you don’t eat much salad and cheese... there’s always warm food provided but not your typical chips , pizza etc... afternoon there is a chance to grab a burger and fries from the little kitchen at the side of the pool bar , we looked forward to that!! the all-inclusive drinks weren’t brilliant neither as they only had ... local beer, wines, Vodka, whiskey, raki and Brandy.. that’s fine if you like these but I’m more of a Malibu and peach snaps kind of drink , which you expect to be able to get in a 4* hotel!! The hotel is more like a 2*-3* not 4* but only because of the food , as the hotel and pool area was great!! The pool was cold but started to heat up as the weather was getting better!! It was very hot so no doubt be hitting 40 now, the last day we couldn’t stay out in it !!!!!
Gumbet bar street is really good ... I wouldn’t say there are loads of bars but there are enough to have a good night!! although watch they don’t over charge you as we were, they charged us 20 lira for 2 Malibu and cokes which is about £18 !!! try and haggle with them.
The best bars we found were Shakers and we love Mr Frogs Karaoke bar the atmosphere in both of these bars are fantastic!! Shakers bar has some of the lads that work there dancing on the dance floor to get you up ... they are fantastic dancers!! And again the atmosphere is brilliant ... there is a club across from shakers called X-BAR ... we went in once and came straight back out as we felt out of place in there ... everyone seems to know each other in there and so on... but it may be different as turkey gets busy.. we went right at the beginning of may which is the quietist time but we still had a good time.. Overall Gumbet is a nice place to go to .. we had a good holiday but I don’t think I would go back, although we made friends with a lovely couple when we was there .. Claire and Jamie.. they learnt us on how to haggle!! Cheers you 2!!! was nice meeting you both !!!
