Sunhill Hotel is set on a hill above the lively resort of Gumbet. Its location is great for panoramic views and escaping the noise of the night life (that continues till at least 4am). There are steps and slopes everywhere so not suited to anyone that isn't a fan of this or maybe has pushchairs and small children.
The hotel room was great, recently refurbished with a lovely bathroom and powerful air con. However the air con is only in the bedroom, so if your room is full to capacity and people are sleeping in the lounge it could be a tad uncomfortable. The room was cleaned everyday with towels replaced - you can't fault this! Because of it being all Inc, there were no glasses etc in the cupboards, which was a bit of a shame.
The all inclusive is where it fell down, maybe I expected too much. The main meals are all buffets, and are Turkish food. Unfortunately both my partner and I became ill while over there and I think the food was the reason as I've never been ill from travelling before. I worry that the meats etc sit out on the display for too long and cool and reheat throughout the night. There is always soup which was ok and bread too. I would worry that there wasn't anything for children. There aren't enough tables in the restaurant. You have to leave one of your party guarding the table because if you both get up to get your food you will come back to another family at your table. This is a shame because the restaurant views are beautiful and it could be so stunning.
The all inclusive drinks are beer, wine, vodka, gin and soft drinks. Again maybe I was expecting too much to have cocktails, rum or whiskey included? I think I also expected bottle water in the rooms, but this wasn't the case so I was still lugging large bottles of water i'd bought up the hill.
The entertainment staff are all very lovely - Sean, Alex and Christiano, although bless them, its the end of the season and I think they were knackered!
While we were at SunHill we did a number of trips, we went to Dalyan and Ephasis, both were phenomenal!
You should also try the local bus to get around the island. You flag it down (anywhere) and hop on, pay the driver while he's driving!! To get to Bodrum its a green bus and its only 3TL each - well worth it.
I went here with my boyfriend but to be honest this is one to go to with friends!! Gumbet is a party town!!
