We arrived late at night and were shown to our room which seemed satisfactory. I had requested certain things which had not been accommodated such as, pool view, double bed etc. If you wished to cook meals in the room i think you would struggle to cook any thing fancy. The hotel bar was open till very late at night and we took advantage of the happy hours, between 16:30 and 17:30 and again later 21:30 and 22:30. We stayed bed and breakfast, the breakfasts were good allowing you to choose anything from the menu. We found that it was very noisy at night with loud music from another hotel going on until 4 in the morning, hardly blocked out by shutting all the windows. The hotel itself is well situated, not too close to bar street but a nice little stroll, and close to the beach. The rooms were kept clean and the staff seemed friendly enough. My partner was hoping to use the fitness center in the hotel and quickly changed his mind on viewing it. It was a very small room with a tread mill and a couple of free weights. We used the hotels Turkish bath which was ok, we were the only ones in there and I found the whole experience a bit creepy. We got a discount as we were guests in the hotel. The pool was a good size and we didn't have any issues with getting a sun bed. Only the beds by the wall got the sun all day.
Our holiday was quite late in the season, before leaving I researched the most favored restaurants from trip advisor. When we got to Gumbet we found that only 2 of the 10 restaurants i noted were open. Over half of Gumbet was deserted and I wouldn't advise anyone to go so late in the season. We had our best meals at Divers, China Town and Saray Zefa. We struggled to find typical turkish food. All the restaurants served almost the exact same menu with lots of English/international type food with a few selections of kebabs. All restaurants seemed to serve English breakfast with heinz beans!
All in all we had a nice holiday but i wouldn't go back. Gumbet is aimed at the young party types and not my cup of tea. I would also advice that people don't go so late in the season as it really limits your options and the staff of everywhere seem fed up and disinterested.
