Just got back from a week at the Flamingo hotel and we were very pleased with our stay. We're a 23 year old couple and went to Olu Deniz for a chill out and to do some sight seeing etc. The hotel was very clean when we arrived, however, we got a twin room with beds that had to be pushed together but, other than that, we had a fab 'deluxe side sea view' room in Flamingo 2. I would definately recommend staying in these rooms- our tour guide from the town informed us that Flamingo 2 has the biggest rooms in Olu Deniz (apparently). Our only complaint with the room was that we had the same towels, bath mat etc the whole week and the maid appeared to do little but make the bed every day.
The air-con is at an extra cost which we didnt buy, along with the standard safety deposit box. We were booked in for BnB and i have to say i was very dissapointed with the breakfast in comparison to other 3* hotels ive stayed in...A choice of hard boiled eggs, cornflakes, toast, cheese, manky ham and salad; i was mostly dissapointed at the lack of fruit, even a bowl of tinned fruit would've done it. However, we never went hungry!
Another main point which i am surprised no one has mentioned is that every morning at 5am we were awoken by the call to prayer from the nearby mosque-it was very loud and we often resorted to shutting the door despite the heat.
The staff were very friendly and we had no problem taking water/beer etc upto our room. The pool was nice-although we only swam in the smaller one by Flamingo 1 in the evenings. We also really liked where the hotel was situated as it was a good enough walk to the beach/main street and far enough out of all of the hustle and bustle.
I would definately recommend the hotel to family and friends, and if you should go i am sure you'll enjoy your stay.
