Well what can I say, after the eventful day getting to the hotel feeling tired and grumpy first impressions were not great. We were greeted and bags taken to our room. The hotel is dated but kept very clean and the rooms are spacious but balconys were small.

We went to the Golden Beach Hotel for the last week of the season, so it wasnt at full capacity. The pool area at night was very nice, and we spent most of our days nights by the pool and pool bar.

The bar staff 'Barman Stud' and others were friendly and funny. We went all inclusive and the drinks were good but I would imagine limited for some people, but if your happy with local beer (very good), Vodka, Brandy, raiki and wine you will be fine.

Breakfast I would say was the best meal of the day day. There is plenty of variety of food at lunch and dinner but one thing I would say is the food could have done with being hotter. The bread and the salad selection was great. The snack bar by the pool was also very good with a homemade pizza type thing, burgers and chips, which I recommend.

We had no problem with getting a sunbed, and if you are after a beach holiday then the beach at the hotel was not that great but only 10mins down the road was Black Beach which was lovely with watersports.

The animation team put on a few hilarious shows (especially the fire show), beach volley ball, darts, bingo, spa treatments, boat trips, disco's and would also run trips for the party people to X Bar in Bodrum.

The local buses are frequent into Turgutreis which is only 3tl, and the bus stop with the Bodrum buses is located right outside the hotel.

We had an amazing time, but I would say this was mainly due to the people that we met. The holiday was great value for money. I miss the fun and laughter and wish I was still there.

just got back from 2 weeks in the golden beach it was fine.
yes the food gets a bit boring ok if you like chicken or lamb. biggest complaint the food was always cold to lukewarm.
the hotel is fine although most of the rooms had no views and very small balconys .
we where on the 4 floor and for the whole 2 weeks the lift was not working.
the hotel is miles from anywhere so not a lot to do at nigth
most of the staff where ok but overworked.
would not go back
but it was cheap holiday and you get what you pay for

We booked our August holiday for our family and friends with a1 travel and on arriving at Bodrum airport had a 2 hour wait for transport to the hotel. This was down to Resort Hoppa, so don't use them, get a taxi instead!
The holiday was not spoilt by this as the hotel is a medium sized hotel compared to some of turkeys hotels and holiday villages and is kept clean and tidy. The gardens are beautiful with almost a tropical feel to them.
The rooms are spacious enough with plenty of wardrobe space & plenty of sockets for appliances. They were cleaned daily and we always had clean towels.
The restaurant had quite a varied choice of food all of which was of a high standard as we have become used to in Turkey. The staff in the restaurant got to know you and would remember what drinks you normally asked for, then bring them to the table for you.The staff worked so very hard.
The pools are kept clean and safe from any excess water around them. You have to be early to get a sunbed in peak season, about 7-7.30 am. (We have known Russians at other Turkish hotels set their alarms for 5.00am! ) The pool bar can be a bit hit and miss with the service but when there are a lot of people wanting serving the staff can not always remember who is next, so patience is needed.
To us the people who worked the hardest are the Animation team. All day long they are keeping guests entertained with the various activities.The pool games and dances are organised by Ibo who is very amusing and made us laugh with his quite unique moves for the pool dances, he is also the one who performs the Fire show which is excellent and should not be missed. Ibo and the rest of the animation team made our holiday more enjoyable and much more fun than we have had on other holidays.
We are hoping to return next year and hope the same staff will be there especially the Animation team. Golden Beach thankyou for a very enjoyable holiday

I just arrived back from Golden Beach hotel on the 13th October. I stayed with 3 friends for a week.
Before going we were a little concerned by the mixed reviews, but I can honestly say I don't understand what people were making a fuss about! The holiday was great value for money. The hotel was nice, clean and the staff worked so hard.
Unlike other reviewers, we found the staff to be so friendly and accommodating. Lots of staff went out of their way to make our holiday even better, and by the end of the holiday we were on friendly terms with a fair few of the staff there. I never came across a staff member in the whole week who was rude or inconsiderate.
The rooms were clean and tidy and the cleaners came in every day. Pool area always clean and tidy,lots of nice sunbeds to sit on.
The food was good, typical turkish, so don't go expecting burger and chips. There's a snack bar in the pool area which does fast food like burgers, pizza etc.

The bar was great, the staff Varol and Arif are great fun and very helpful. We really miss them now we're back!

Overall, we had a brilliant time and would urge other people to go.

Returned back from the golden beach on Monday having stayed in Bodrum/gumbet for the last 10 yrs we fancied a change, and what a good choice, yes the food is repetitive but hello its an all inclusive hotel catering for all holiday makers if you want pizza express, kfc chicken and big macs try your local butlins, however if fresh salads fruits chesses home made breads and speciality dishes from around the world then your on the right track (don't worry there is some chips if your really that fussy).
The staff are so lovely and friendly I was quite shocked after reading the reviews on here but I did take my manners with me unlike a lot of people! I was shocked how people spoke to the staff so rude and abrupt a smile costs nothing and everyone understands thank you! so I'm disgusted that some people can criticise the staff on here saying their rude when people have that attitude towards them, they work so hard long hours and in that heat, overall we had a lovely time we were offered the trips to the bars and the boat trips having done all that we were happy to be left alone and they respected our wishes,
the fire show was amazing and would definitely pay to see that again, the pool and the gardens are kept clean there's always a little man constantly cleaning away, the restaurant staff were so friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble,
and if you sit at the bar Arif always keeps your glass full,
this hotel is lovely 30 mins approx from the shopping at Bodrum and 2 seconds across the road from the beach, whether your looking for a week of partying or relaxing at the beach or pool this hotel is perfect,
