We flew with Onur Airlines and that was the first problem, the airplane was so small and squashed. There was no TV or even headphones for music, the staff only came out with the trolleys for 20 mins twice inside 4 hours, they stood in behind curtains at the front of the plane the rest of the time and didn't allow passengers to use toilets at front so instead had to go up the back of plane.
We then got on a minibus for what was supposed to be 40 mins transfer time instead was 1hr 40 mins.
At arriving at hotel first impressions where great. Lovely pool and great location right beside beach, however it was surrounding by flowers and shubbery, which didn't help the hayfever. We also got bitten several times walking through the shubbery every night to get to Bar Street, so take plenty of bite creams.
We then went down for breakfast that morning and was all salads, cheese and breads, no cereals or fry.
Then we had snacks which as far as we were aware it was to be chips, burgers, toasties, etc but no snacks or should I say snack was chips and toast with salami.
Then for lunch and dinner it was the same salad stuff with spicy sausage, meatballs and barley which I thought was rice but nope. Also some coloured stuff which looked like pasta, and bbq'd fish and other funny stuff which i wasn't willing to try. We asked for chips and they said no they where only avaliable at snack times. So the food was just a no go for us.
The staff were great very friendly and helpful.
The hotel was clean, clean towels every day however sheets weren't changed. We had to ask for them to be changed after 3 nights.
The hotel was mainly all Dutch, Germans, French or Spanish. There was only one other English speaking couple other than ourselves. It wasn't very child friendly either, as the other hotels all seemed to have big water slides etc.
No entertainment whatsoever.

Thats what we were looking for most, we arrived at the hotel at about 2am, had our bags taken up to our room for us, even tho two were still missing but they were soon recovered by first choice.
We headed down to the bar which the very lovely J.D made us all cocktails even tho they were 'supposed' to be closed. Upon waking, we stepped out on to the balcony and realised how wonderful the whole place looked.
Whatever people tell you about this place saying its not nice that was years ago, now its lovely. The hotel is suited for people of all ages, familys, couples, friends! all the hotel staff are soo friendly, especially J.D, Ahmed and the younger one out the lot Dashu.
They all love to have a laugh with all the guests. J.D loves dancing, me J.D and my boyfriend went out with him and he knows how to party!
Our rep from first choice was wicked, she was such a laugh, it was her first year but she did so well you would never have believed it!! so thanks Joni.

The cleanliness of the apartments is not very good, there was no hot water only in the evening at about7.30pm.
The entertainment was pretty poor we where forced to buy 2 tickets for a barbecue which was unsatisfactory I would stay in gumbet again as i had a lovely holiday but i wont be going back to the ayaz aqua apartmenta

Taken to our mosquito infested cave. Mever stayed at such a dump in all our lives. Our room was well what can i say damn right filthy. Just glad we never took our children there.
Certainly would not reccomend these dirty apts to anybody.

We were self catering but the pool bar served nice enough food to keep you going until your meal out. The location of the hotel was spot on we were right in the middle off everything and it was literally a 1 minute dander to the beach and 5 minutes up the dirt track took us into the centre of Gumbet Town.
The hotel staff were really nice and loads of fun!!! Tanju, J.D, and Ahmet who worked at the bar were all brilliant and were always up for a laugh we all lost count how many times we got chucked in the pool clothes and all
( they didn't care!!! ) and they never hestitated to come and say hi.
The hotel entertainment was ok. The first week we went to the bbq and the turkish night but they weren't anything special so we didn't go again!!

In the two weeks we spent at Ayaz Aqua the floors were never cleaned . The floors were dirty to the extent that we had to keep shoes on when in the appartment. Also , the smell in the bathroom was probably the worst we have experienced.
We spent very little time at the pool as the sunloungers are so close together that you are litterally touching the arm of the person next to you.
Our apartment, like most of them, was opposite the bar area . At night the music gets louder and even at 03:00hrs with nobody in the bar the music volume is excessive.
The location of the hotel was good as it is very close to a lovely beach (approx 100m) and we walked to Bitez in 40 minutes (with a pram).
The resort centre is 10 to 15 minutes walk away which was good.
In summary , with a little more effort this could be an excellent hotel.
