“Excellent hotel could be run better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2011

We spent 2 weeks at this hotel in October and would recommend it as one of the best in the area. It is a large hotel with lots of different bars and restaurants to choose from. It was spotlessly clean, never seen such clean toilets and the young woman who cleaned the lobby area and toilets always seemed to be working so well done to her.
We had a terrible storm at the end of our 1st week which caused chaos as the 6th floor main restaurant is mainly outside dining with only a small inside seating area certainly not enough for 800 people.
Food in the buffet restaurants was OK, mainly the same thing and often luke warm. Felt that they could have made more of an effort with the outside show area and produced different food there. The Fish and Turkish restaurants were very good, you book them at 9am and is good for a change.
We had a lovely Superior Garden room so no complaints there.
We found that a few of the bars constantly ran out of drinks quite early in the evening. One night there was no wine, no brandy and no Raki and when I enquired when they would have it, I was told, very rudly, 'Lady, everyone drinking all day so it is finished'!!!!
If you like to walk, you can walk along the seafront or to the shops and restaurants in Gumbet and we found that everyone was very friendly there so lots of people ate out at night for a change.
My complaint about this hotel is the lack of dress code. We have never stayed in a good hotel before where there was not one which means that scantily clad people were walking about the dining room during the day and in shorts at night.
Having said all this, we met a lot of nice people to talk to and found most of the waiters extremely friendly. If we were to return to Gumbet we would most certainly stay there again and would recommend it. For the price paid it was excellent, you could always find better but there are also a lot worse as a few people re-located from other hotels to there.

Me and my new wife went here on our honeymoon last week of the season October 23-30. the Hotel is very clean and modern our bedding was change every day.The food was 5* not just chicken every day we had lamb, beef,turkey and many different kinds of fish. there was every kind of salad and pasta you could imagine. The Chef would cook you fresh omelets or fried eggs to your liking right in front of you. The sweets were absolutely fabulous,cakes, gateaux s fancy pastries and fruit was plentiful.
English tea ,coffee, hot chocolate,capachinoes soft drinks and beer 24 hours a day in one of the bars and most of the time in the other 5 bars. On three nights we had a meal in the restraunts which felt like going out for a special meal,we had a Turkish meal a chinese meal and an Italian meal all three course meals,very nice!
The views from the roof terrace where the main restaunt was were spectacular with views of the surrounding hills and the two private beaches that belong to the hotel as well as the bay of Bodrum. The hotel was in a nice quiet corner of Bodrum with easy access to the shops and bars with plenty of cafes and restraunts to eat out (but once in the hotel there really is no need to eat out).
This is definitely the only hotel we will ever stay in in Gumbet and hope to go back next year (but not so late in the season) . The only down side is that unless you are in a premier room there is no kettle in your room, so if you like a cuppa before 7.30 take a kettle with you.
The weather wasnt the greatest at this time of the year the temperature was in the early 70s but in early August we were told it was 110 !
Staff were really friendly and helpful . With entertainment team with shows on in the evening and events and clubs for the children. An all round great hotel was a little bit more expensive than other hotels but with 7 bars one of them 24hrs and 2 great restraunts its well worth going all-inclusive.CANT WAIT TO GO BACK !

Room Tip: Go premier (or take a kettle) and ask for a pool view you will get the sun all day.

Hi, I stayed at this hotel at the begining of October, with a freind for one week. As other people have said, the location is perfect, we used to wander off around the bay in the evenings - to see what entertainment was on offer, then come back around 11ish. As the beach bar was 24 hour sevice this was ok.
My only critisism really, being a vegatarian, is that most of the time, for dinner [or tea as we call it where i come from] my only choice was either, cold vegatables ie, salad or luke warm vegatables ie accompanyments to meat eaters meals. Also at the late night snack bar - cheese or meat on offer for sandwiches but only one set of tongues to pick both up!!

Having said this I would probably go back to this hotel but would eat main meals elsewhere.

We found this holiday through our travel agent and we will def be re-visiting in the future. The staff couldn't have been nicer & more helpful. The location was ideal & the nicest all inclusive food we have ever eaten (& I am a fussy eater). Over all the best family holiday we have ever had we know several people who have been on our recommendation & the only negative that they came back with is that it rained mid October!!!

We stayed at the royal asarlik at the beginning of October haveing read all the reviews prior to booking, have to say that the the staff (with the exception of one) were all very good, the only exception was the barma at the main bar in the lobby, every night of 7 night stay the bar ran out of brandy and whisky by about 8.30, this was when the barman got himself in lather because everybody was asking for the brandy and whisky, one night they even ran out of vodka as well, this left raki or gin, when complaints were made to reception and reps nothing was done, unfortunately this spoilt the holiday experience for us, I have never been to an all inclusive hotel (i stay at 2 hotels a year) that has ever run out of the main drinks. plenty of beer on offer though, food was good did not find it repetetive at all, weather was awful for the last 2 or 3 days and the airport was a nightmare, for some reason the reps got us there 3 hours before the flight along with 10 other flights, if you have ever been to bodrum airport you will realise that there was no seating and only standing room, very packed, shopd were a rip off, £4.50 for a small can of coke. Other than the drink and airport it was an enjoyable holiday but one that we would not repeat, would not go to any resort that involves going through bodrum airport. we have been to Lara Beach 4 times over the last 4 years and will almost certainly return next year, the hotels there are genuine 5 star.
As an added comment we had no reply from our complaint to the rep.

Room Tip: go for a pool view room on the upper floors,
