We stayed in Eken Resort Hotel for a week from 23rd September. When we first arrived we were given a key to a room in the Family suite which is a seperate building to the main hotel. We walked in and it was a nightmare room. It was dark, damp, and the bathroom was full of mould. Also there was a door when opened, opened onto the main corridor of the building. I got my room changed straight away to the main hotel. If you are put into the family suite, change your room straight away.
I cannot grumble about our room that we had for the whole week, it was cleaned everyday, fresh bedding and towels.
The staff are very friendly, especially Eddy who works around the pool trying to get you to have a Turkish Bath, which I would recommend aswell.
The food is rather boring, it's mainly chicken and rice every day. The snacks are ok, the best one was the chicken kebabs on Friday.
The hotel has no nightly entertainment, only a belly dancer which was on the Sunday. The bar manager in the evening plays the same cd every night, and I think it is on repeat aswell, so we went out everynight to Gumbet, as the cd became rather annoying. And it wasn't easy listening music either.
The hotel is not on the beach like some reviews state, it is about 200m, and I would not recommend going in the sea as it was filthy, bottles and ciggarette ends every where.
If you are looking for a proper 4* then this isn't it! I would say this is a 2* possibly 3*. If you are on a budget then this is ideal as it is close to Bodrum and near enough in the centre of Gumbet to go out.
