travelled with 10 friends in late August - BRILLIANT
Lovely quiet appartments, Ramsey(the owner) and his brother routinely slept on the loungers at night so we all felt very safe, even leaving the windows open on ground floor. No need for a safe!
Swimming pool quite small but apart from us there was no more than 10 other guests so getting sunbeds and having plenty of room in the pool was never a problem. Pool was clean and we spent most days here - we were allowed to pick our own music from Ramsey's laptop.
Rooms were clean enough, no complaints of mossy bites at all apart from one girl who was prone to them.
10-15 minutes walking from bar street and restaurants, shops etc, didn't find it a problem at all. Some of the restaurants would even pick us up and drop us off for breakfast.
i would recommend travelling with a mixed group as the men in Gumbet can be a 'bit much' trying to get you to go into their bars and shops, and we got lots of bordering on creepy men, so it was always good to have male friends around!
Weather was fantastic - temperatures in 40s everyday.
our favourite place was a little kebab place just around the corner - can't remember what its called. 4 of us ate there and had a lovely fresh meal with drinks and turkish tea for just 40 lira(£10ish) Also Ramsey made us lovely toasties and omelettes in the morning when we were feeling a bit worsefor wear. On our last night he held a turkish night for us to say goodbye to all our new pals and the barbeque was lovely.
We always had lots of fun in the little bar drinking cocktails and putting on our own music and went out every night. The Thomas cook booze cruises and foam parties etc are a bit extortionate so we stayed away from them and made our own fun. We did however go on the bar crawl, which was good fun. Definitely recommend DREAMGIRLS at the little theatre. Our entire group + everyone else staying at the Orange Appts went on one of our last days and we had such a good night, the show was hilarious and everyone got involved. only £20 for show and dinner.
If you go to Gumbet, stay at Orange!!!!
