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.
