"We have been to Turkey 5 times, usually every second year and generally love the place, but this year we were disappointed by the quality of this particular resort.
It was full of cheap restaurants and bars serving cheap quality food. We did find a couple of decent places but would recommend Bitez if you want a nicer place to go day or night.
In general the Green House was Okay and well worth the money we paid.
Will definitely be back in Turkey but not Gumbet. Hey, each to his own as they say."

Excellent Place to Stay
"My husband, my self and our 11 month old little boy stayed at the Greenhouse in May 2007, we absolutely loved it!
Greenhouse is a small family run business so the staff pride theirselves on the service they provide and can't do enough for you.
The older block of apartments are dated and in need of a refurb but they are clean and tidy. We were comfortable living there for a week! We stayed in an apartment over 3 mezzanine floors, the basic kitchen and small bathroom on the ground floor, small living area on 1st floor and bedroom on 2nd floor.
The food is excellent, the only place you'll find a proper English sausage with your breakfast!
There are 2 swimming pools which are both lovely. Our little boy loved splashing in the baby pool and playing in the small play area.
The beach is less than a 5 minute walk away. It's paradise to sit early in the morning and have a coffee in one of the many restaurants and bars.
I can honestly say you'll find it hard to get a more welcoming and friendly place to stay than the Greenhouse. We have already booked to go again in May 2008!"

Loved the place!
"The GreenHouse is lovely, you really do feel like part of a community the entire time you're there. The staff are fantastic, can't do enough for you. Food really good. Rooms are basic but clean and although the mezzanine style gets a bit tiring on the legs, especially if your apartment is over 3 floors instead of 2 and you've forgotten something on the ground floor, it does make you feel like you're in a proper little home rather than a pokey hotel room. Would have no hesitation in recommending people go there, it's suitable for all ages although if you're looking for a really quiet holiday then the music from the bar might start to drive you insane after a while! I'm already planning my next trip!"

Loved it....Go there!
"We have just returned from a week at the Greenhouse hotel-myself, husband and 2 sons aged 13 and 14 years.It is the first time we have been to Turkey, and it wasn't a place at the top of my 'To Go' list. After this trip we would definately return! The people are so friendly, but the hassle shopping is a nightmare!
The Greenhouse was great. The staff and owner went out of their way to make your stay as pleasent and comfortable as possible. Nothing was ever to much trouble, and everything was done with a smile. If there was something you needed, eg we needed another chair, you only had to ask once.
The apartment block is relatively small so there was never a dash for sunbeds etc. The place was kept very clean, including the pool which was checked regularly- the pool is deep, which was fun for my 2 teenagers -although there is a small splash area for tots- The accommodation was fairly basic but clean and adequate. the mezanine levels, we thought was a great idea as it gave areas for teenagers under eachothers feet to go!!"

"These apartments are superb. We have been going for the last 3 years and we love it.
The owner is married to an Irish girl, really friendly people.
The complex is in an ideal site right next too the beach and near too all of the shops and bars, has a cold bar which is excellent on the really hot days.
Rooms are very clean and cheerful. And maid service is excellent too.
Overall rating defo 10 out of 10."

An absolute fab time
"This was our first 'abroad' family holiday and had an absolutely
fantastic time. From day one arriving we were made very welcome with the staff and made loads of friends (and not only our age group) whatever the age we all joined in and had lots of fun and laughs together.
The apartments were clean and more spacious than expected and liked the idea of the 'Mezzanine type of rooms. Air conditioning was an added bonus especially when temperatures were over 50 degrees.
The food was great and accomodated for all types of tastes. We
loved the idea of being able to stay by the apartments to have something to eat rather than venture round town to find somewhere - which was by no means difficult if you prefer to do so.
The main pool was a good size and very clean - the kids loved it,
in fact they were more than content to stay by the pool and wasn't
interested in going down to the beach.
A good varied entertainment on most nights - loved the 'Turkish night' especially!
The staff including the owner were extremely friendly and couldn't do enough for us, they were on hand 24/7 making sure all was well!
Without a doubt we will have no hesitation in going back to the Green House next year."

"Stayed here for a week in October 2005. The location is good - not in the busy hustle and bustle but close by for access. Great restaurants nearby too. Rooms basic but clean. It was end of season so not much in way of in house entertainment and one pool was out of use. Would stay here again."

"We are returning back to the Greenhouse Apartments for the 5th time in july. The location is fantastic - you are just a short stroll from the start of the bars/resturants and a 5 minute walk from the beach. The apartments themselves are clean and spacious, the idea is open plan and they are spilt on three levels. the staff are great and cant do enough for us. We would not have any trouble recommending this accomodation to anyone. Makes it a great base to explore a great resort with its surrounding areas. xx"
