decided to book this hotel as a last minute holiday and when we arrived we weren't disappointed!!! even though it was 4am before we arrived the reception staff were friendly and gave us a filled roll when we got there which was very much needed!!! a porter took our bags and showed us to the room and how to work the air conditioning etc and tried to chat as best he could. never had a problem getting a sun longer though it was harder to get a parasol. the hotel is very very clean and the room was cleaned and fresh towels everyday, theres a shop, hairdressers, dentist, doctors, gym, barbers in the hotel but being honest we never saw anyone in anything but the shop. the biggest problem we found is nearly all of the staff don't speak english which can be a real problem if your trying to ask something and the barmen we felt were very rude as nearly everytime i went to the bar i was just left standing there even if they weren't doing anything and yet if someone else came along (normally a man) they would serve him then decide to serve me which is really annoying. there were only 2 other english speaking couples there while we were there, the rest were a mixture of turkish, german and french so there wasnt really the opportunity to speak to anyone else and they all seemed to get served before us!!! the food was ok, been all inclusive before and you sort of know what to expect food wise, the soup was fantastic everyday!!! the bread very fresh, most of the food was ok but nothing exciting and the snack bar didnt offer much except from pizza, chips and sometimes one other thing but you make do. we also found you had to be down for dinner before 7.30pm to ensure you could get a table some nights otherwise the waiters just start seating people together and thats not much fun when no one else speaks english and they get put at a table with you, when left that night to eat in town as we really didnt want to eat with strangers. theres lots of restaurants in the town if you fancy eating out, the divers was a really good place and quite highly rated on trip advisor. the biggest downside to this hotel is there is nothing to do!!!!!! having been to turkey a few times the other hotels we've stayed at have provided an animation team during the day and entertainment at night but there was nothing during the day and only entertainment one night which meant we went into town everynight which means you spend more money!!! it could make the day very long as its great lying by the pool but some entertainment would have passed the time. that is probably the biggest downside to staying here, the town is only 5-10 mins away on the dolmus which stopped outside the hotel about every 15 mins and isn't expensive at all. can highly recommend 'smileys' bar if you want some fun!!! we ended up there every night and the staff are fantastic and welcoming which is what we needed after being ignored every single day! the views from the hotel are stunning and with being higher up you always felt like you were baking in the sun. although the hotel was nice and clean i wouldn't go back unless they got some entertainment and nicer staff to be honest, if your not planning on spending much time at the hotel then it would be a great place to stay but we spent far more money than we intended with having to go out every night to find something to do. and also you have to like VERY VERY VERY loud music during the day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the bar staff seemed to have 1 cd which they played everyday over and over and over and boy did they play it loud! me and my husband were screaming at one another to try and talk and still couldnt hear each other over it! and the music wasnt that good at all! i love the town of gumbet and will go back there time and again but i think unless things change here then i wouldnt go back to stay but its not an awful hotel, i just dont like to be ignored!
