Siesta Beach Apartments

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Stayed here for 2 weeks 20th June - 4th July. Have stayed here for many years and this must have been the best yet. The Siesta is in a fantastic Location at the end of the bay but only a 10 minute walk into Gumbet. Aviod the rose and bracelet sellers along the beach. The room we had was fantastic, The view from the top pool is stunning. Had breakfast every morning at the Siesta very good value for money and the service was excellent. Food in the evening is also excellent. Entertainment was good but have to say a special thanks to Nico, Akin and Alpay for making it extra special. Engin is their photographer and what fantastic photos he takes and good value for money. Our room was always cleaned, plenty of clean towels and beds changed regulary. Cleaners work hard and are very friendly. In all the years we have been going I have never heard of anyone having money taken from their rooms. We always get a safe but have left money and things in the apartments and it has never been touched. The grounds at the Siesta are always clean and tidy. Ahmet in reception was wonderful in fact all the staff are wonderful and will go out of their way to help you. I can not say anything negative about these apartments and can not wait till we return next year. This year our group ages ranged from 64 years to 8 years and all had a ball. Thanks again to all the staff for another memorable holiday xxxx

An honest review in my opinion. Stopped here in 2010,2011 and used the facilities there in 2012, this was because the dates we wanted the complex was full,regret not booking earlier as we stayed a couple of doors down and we were not impressed and there is a review of that place elsewhere.
So you could say we have been here three consecutive years the amount of time we spent there, I have got to know the staff very well,Nico, Akon, BIg and Little Ziggy, JD, Alpay and many others who have worked there and consider them friends. These lads go out of their way to ensure you have a good time on holiday.
The accomodation is of a very high standard and the complex in general is very clean and tidy and located in what i consider an ideal spot for the restaurants and bars.
The entertainment is second to none, from the incredible Breakdance Crew to Fire Eater and Mr Flexible and of course the traditional Turkish night with food and excellent entertainment with traditional Dancers and a genuine Belly Dancer.
The music is turned down as the night progresses and i have seen very little of the drunkedness that seems to blight certain places,we go as a family who's ages range from 50 to 8 and we find it caters for everyone.
I have no problems with this complex at all and have booked to go back next year and look forward to my annual family holiday.

Had an amazing holiday at the Siesta Beach Apartments in Gumbet. To say it was my first time in Turkey all together, I will definitely be returning and most likely to Siesta Beach.
When we arrived, we were taken to one of the back rooms of the hotel which was awful - it had no windows, no balcony, left over food in the fridge and was so dated. Considering we had probably paid the same price if not more than the people in the nice rooms we'd walked past, we were a little gutted! However, we went to reception to complain and we were kindly given a different room, nearer the front of the hotel and it was a really nice room, with a balcony, more modern and had a nice view (at least what you expect when you pay a large amount of money for your holiday). Our room was cleaned at least once every other day and we had new bed sheets and towels frequently throughout our 11 days there! (As our holiday was a girls holiday, 3 young girls - the cleaner mentioned to us that groups of girls/guys i.e. younger parties, they take you to the rooms that aren't as good as the majority of the hotels rooms - my advice would be if this happens to you, don't be afraid to complain at reception, they are very helpful and will change your room!!)
The highlight of our holiday really has to be the staff at the siesta beach apartments - literally every single man that works there was so welcoming and friendly! It caters for all ages at the Dolphin Bar - the entertainment over dinner is amazing and the music, dancing and fun DOES carry on until the early hours of the morning. On many occasions we came back from the strip at 4/5am and they were all still up partying (we don't know how they do it).
The food at the hotel is fabulous! Obviously being on holiday, we did want to try some different places, but at the end of the day we realised the Siesta was the best food around! So cheap and all of it was great!
Sometimes hard to get a sunbed around the pool, but they also have sunbeds at the front of the hotel on the beach that belong to the Siesta. (We never had a day where we couldn't get a bed on the beach or around the pool). The pool boys staff were so helpful, always coming round to ask if you wanted a drink - they all work so hard and are so friendly!
The location of the hotel is in a great spot, right on the beach and a short walk along the beach to the strip/centre of gumbet. I would also recommend a day in bodrum, there is a Dolmas that runs every half an hour from right outside the hotel that takes you straight to bodrum for about 3 lira! Its a great day out to do something different! (lots of shopping and nice places to eat/drink).

Cannot speak highly enough of my holiday in Gumbet, cannot wait to get booking to go back HOPEFULLY next year! Still stay in touch with most of the staff on facebook and hope they will all be there next year:)
Thanks for making our holiday so memorable!

My husband and I had an apartment with balcony but could not be there at all, cause there were Lout music till early morning. The interieur was old and worn out. NO cleaning at all so the rooms/bathroom was so dirty. We were there 14 days and the floor was never washed. The hotel-beach was as dirty as the rooms with lot of garbage all over. Even with a free offer we wont stay there ever again

We stayed at the siesta beach from the 24 sept to 8 oct, had a really good 2 weeks, staff were very friendly and very helpful, the one not so good thing about the hotel was the room cleaners, they should change them to "bed and towel changers" because thats all they did in our room, nothing else was cleaned, only the bins in the kitchen & bathroom were taken out, the bath, sink, toilet etc wasnt cleaned at all for the whole stay, even black stuff that was along the top edge of the bath between the shower doors became worse as the days went by, as far as stuff going missing, then all we can say is that nothing did, I forgot my mobile phone one day when we went to bodrum and I only realised when we had got there, I thought "oh my god, will it still be there when we got back" needless to say it was...also any change we had after the days out went into a ashtray, even that was never taken, the bars and restraunts were many and all had some really good deals on because it was coming to the end of the season, all in all, a really good time and will probably be going again next year.....thanks siesta for a great time.....

Room Tip: we stayed in room 316, it had a great view of around the bay, a large palm tree hid most of the sea...

We were at the Siesta Beach in the last two weeks in July for what turned out to be a brilliant family holiday. We've been to Gumbet before without the kids so we expected to pestered by bracelet, roses, food, boat-trip, and water sports reps (and this is the only real downside to visiting Bodrum and Gumbet). As far as the Siesta Beach goes we arrived in the middle of the night to a cheery Ahmet who made arrangements to take our luggage to our room. We got the aircon and safety deposit box which cost about the same as everywhere else we had been. We then went to room but couldn't rest so went to bar. From that point on we patronised the Siesta most of the time and had some fantastic times. The food is probably the best in that part of town; I'd say the nearest for quality is the Red Dragon and it is similarly priced. Best thing to do in Turkey is admit you no nothing about Turkish life and culture and ask the staff how life works. We were there for part of Ramadam which mean't nothing until ever wise Yilmaz explained everything. Makes you a bit more considerate when you realise quite a few of the staff can't even have a drink of water during daylight hours. We saved money with the help of the staff and found self catering worked out very reasonable. All the lads who work at the Siesta think a lot of kids and families so they will go out of there way to help. Even the entertainment acts were considerate of kids and tried to involve everyone.
I'd recommend the boat trip via Engin although don't go off his times (he will tell you to be at the bar at 9:30am) ask Yilmaz if in doubt. The lads who work on the Sunshine boat are also really friendly - we learnt about an area in town where people go for Raki and meze - brilliant.
The rooms in the Siesta are a reasonable standard and from what I understand are being refitted bit by bit. The aircon is essential in July/August unless you are Scandanavian and then you basically live on your balcony... A good trick is set the aircon on full whack and close the bathroom door which is always the source of heat in the apartments. You can also have a chat with the cleaners about ways to get the aircon on mid/late afternoon ready for your return in the evening.
It is worth remembering that hotel staff in Turkey are paid very little, especially the cleaners. They see us with money and gadgets, etc. flitting away 10 TL like its toilet paper - although they want you to spend money it helps if you leave a tip or use the apartments facilities or find away to say thanks for helping us out. If you do it right you will get treated like an honoured guest - beds made up with flowers, etc.
I'd also recommend the hamam (Turkish Bath) - barter a good price and get yourself in there in the first few days. It really does help your skin get accustomed to the blistering heat.
We are hoping to go back next year all being well.

Room Tip: Talk to reception and the cleaners and ask for help if you are struggling. Go and see JD or big Zigg...

We had a good holiday but as with others that have written recent reviews we also had some money removed from our room. We overheard people discussing this issue and I immediately returned to our room to find that £5 had been removed from a purse. We had only left the room for two hours and I returned just after the cleaners had left. Hence 2 and 2 make 4 to me. Due to it only being £5 we didn't report it due to the concern that the service we would have recieved thereafter would be poor (as others have reported this was the case for them). It wouldn't have been so bad if the cleaners had actually cleaned. Our bath and bathroom sink plus the floor mat remained uncleaned throughout our stay. After this incident we kept all money on us so had no further issues.
Secondly we found the reception staff in the evenings were ignorant at best. It appears as though you needed to be a young female to gain their attention or the slightest bit of courtesy.
Also I considered the hire of air conditioning and safe for a week was costly at £15 and £30, respectively.
On the positive the top bar views and service was excellent. The room was spacious and noise levels OK. The dolmus stopping outside the hotel meant travel to Bodrum and beyond was simple. It became disappointing if we had to wait a couple of minutes. If only this was the case at home.
Overall Bodrum, Gumbet and beyond offer a good location for a holiday and the Siesta Beach a good base as long as you look after your valuables.
