48 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"The apartments (we had two, one studio, one apartment) were nice and clean, one had been more recently modernized than the other. The whole of the staff were warm and friendly (Eve is a font of local knowledge, JJ runs on Duracell batteries so does not stop). The pools are rather deep and there was no problem getting a sun bed 95% of the time. The Turkish night at the apartments was really good entertainment and the food was great. We used the local Dolmaus bus once but quickly worked out that as there was four of us it only cost a little more for us to use the taxiâs to get to Bodrum. Locally the shops, bars and restaurants all try and entice you in every night which does get a bit tedious. By turning right out of the apartments then taking the next right you are heading down towards the beach, once you are at the beach you have to then run the gauntlet of the restaurants (by turning left along the beach) we did find one restaurant of an evening which did tend to leave you to look at the menu before deciding whether to go in) which was the Hotel Baba (food was good and plentiful and reasonably priced. Worst part of the holiday was the markets."

"Me and boyfriend booked to go to turkey we went 28th aug - 11 sep i was a bit unsure at first because of the things ive heard people say about turkey. Green house apartment were great the food was nice all the staff were very friendy the pool were very clean they were cleaned every night. We met a few peole who had been to these apartments more than once. I would defo come back and recommend these apartments to anyone. The beach was also nice the sun lounges were free loads water activities and would defo recommend boat trip epically if you want a nice tan. The local bus which is called the dolmus what you can get into Bodrum is 2.50 lira to anywhere but beware they are maniacs (so hold on tight haha) they dont think twice about driving through a red light. Gumbet town itself was a really nice place it is quite lively and i would also recommend going to the siesta bar which is to your right as you walk out of the greenhouse apartments about 100 metres away we used to go at 10pm when they have break dancers everyone used to get up and dance as they had dance routines. TIPS: Haggle with them as you will get whatever you want for half the price they first asked you.
you will get hassled alot but you jut say no thanks politly or just pretend you never heard them haha that what i used to do but my boyfriend used to always end up stopping and listen to them for about 10mins. Another thing they dont forget your face or your name. If having second thoughts about Turkey defo go because it wa the best holiday i ever had."

"this has been my first time in turkey and the greenhouse so i didnt really know what to expect so on arrival was well pleased .Our room was on 2 levels and was very clean i found staff very helpful and friendly. The apts are well situated about 5 mins walk to the beach and 2mins walk from what i thort was the best restuarant the royal.The only thing i found a little dissapointing about the greenhouse is there isnt enough sunbeds and it didnt matter what time you got up they were all taken.I would however recomend the greenhouse and i would definatly go back ."

"Just back this morning from the Greenhouse apartments in Gumbet and like others was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews. We were pleasantly surprised with the standard of accomodation. we had a 1 bed apartment situated round the back of the bar area at the quieter pool. out apartments has 2 balconies albeit small, and a fantastic large roof terrace area with shower.
food was good, maybe a bit pricy for breakfast but not bad, staff were very helpful, apartments cleaned everyday, clean towels and beds changed twice a week. Apartments situated in the quieter area but 10 mins walk to the busy bar street.
would certainly return to these apartments."

Go, you'll love it...
"After reading some reviews on this hotel
i was slightly worried but i must say that after arriving my fears were allayed. We were given a ground floor room around by the kids pool & it was all on one level, unlike the 2 & 3 level apartments in the brochure but i preferred this as i was worried about the kids slipping with wet feet & falling down them.
The room was clean & certainly large enough for 2 adults & 2 teenager girls & had the basic essentials for self catering. The bins in the room were emptied everyday around 5pm & bed linen/towels & the room cleaned half-way through our week long stay.
The pool area was spotless & the pool area around the back with the kids pool was sooo quiet & there was never a rush to get sun loungers, you could arrive at any time of day & find plenty. The sun at the kids pool area was there from around 9am till 6.30pm so plenty of time to catch a few rays by the pool.
As for the staff, i really couldn't fault them. The reception staff were always pleasant & helpful, cleaners were the same & the bar staff of Engin, Gokay, Aslan & the others were brilliant & did everything to make your stay perfect. Their 'Dreamgirls' night was great craic, really enjoyed making a right fool of myself.
I only ate in the hotel once but the meal was excellent & couldn't fault it.
All in all, i had a great time & met some nice guests there like Richard, mad Daryl & just as mad Noel..
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Greenhouse to anyone, just go, you'll love it...... "

Amazing, i dont know how people could say anything else!!!
"Got to green house very late at night, check in was very efficient and staff were lovely and helpful. A cleaner came everyday to make the bed, take all rubbish and have a general tidy. Towels were only changed once but it is explained that this helps the enviroment and if they are hung up they are fine.
A/C is provided free of charge which is uncommon around that area. All staff were helpful and friendly, always polite, asking names and whereabouts you had come from. Food in the restaurant was out of this world epecially at lunch and dinner, breakfast was not as good.
It was the first time me and my boyfriend had been on holiday together, despite not having a huge budget i do have high expectation and have been to many 3-5star hotels before. For the price we paid this hotel exceeded my expectations. The whole of gumbet it lovely, shop keepers are very pushy but this is to be expected in this country. Beach is gorgeous, Zetas restuarant on the beach is fantastic.
Loved every minute, shame there wasnt entertainment every night in the bar, but was expected due to the size of the place. Right in the centre of Gumbet, everything you wanted on your doorstep!!!"
