“Fab Flamingo”
Reviewed 7 June 2011

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.

After going to Turkey for over 4 years now, we know that the Turkish are lovely people. The staff at Flamingo Hotel are even better. They make you feel like one big family, and they will do anything for you. I can't fault anything about Flamingo. By the end of our two weeks there, it was emotional to leave because of how close we all were. The hotel is always clean and spotless, and the food is great. Really can't understand how some guests didn't enjoy Flamingo Hotel, it's a great place to be, and we will certainly be booking there again! Big thanks to Hakan who is the hotel manager, as well as all the staff; they go that extra mile to make your stay PERFECT! Love from the Webster's x

Having been to Turkey for the previous 4 years in May. We stayed in adiiferent Hotel this time the Flamingo.
It was perfect for us.
1 disabled lady poor mobility aged 70. Older teenager son,"Son who never once made breakfast too much going on at nights " and myself fit and a little ovewr 40!

Pools were great. none of that rush at 6am with towels, drinks were very reasonable served with a smile both ways.

Food was plentiful, varied and wholesome....we bkd half board as did not want to have to go out every night after a full day out etc.

People can always complain about food as we all have our own taste so if you like to pick and choose, i think they may like to eat out more than we did eating out can work out expensive.

Our room had a great balcony overlooking the pool on the second level.

The rooms were cleaned by very hard working ladies who seem to work long hours.

Waiters and all staff were so helpful and amiable,great fun lots of laughs by every one who took the time to relax and enjoy.
The Manager was very dishy and also very nice , he was around most of time and every thing ran smoothly for all of us and most of the people there at the time we were thier 2 wks were fantastic , young and old.

Any way can recommend the Flamingo, if you have got a walking disability you may be better of f on the main street as there is a bit of a steep incline to the hotel but the views make all this worthwhile

THank you All at the Flamingo.
Maria and C0

The hotel looks fine, i didnt stay there so ignore any negative content from this, but they allow a photographer to pitch outside and mither people to have pictures taken. DO NOT TRUST HIM. He will promise to do whatever is required if you need the pictures "improving" and will also throw in a CD with your pictures on. He does nothing with your pictures and gives you a BLANK disc.......if you decide to buy from him then check EVERYTHING before handing over the money.......RIP OFF!!!

This was our first time in Turkey. we had had a lot of positive feedback from friends that had been to Olu Deniz before, and I have to say we were not disappointed at all.
We stayed at the Flamingo Hotel. The staff really helped to make our holiday. They were so friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The atmosphere was so great, we ate in the hotel restaurant every night. We stayed in a deluxe room for only a few pounds more. It was clean, spacious and very nice.
We will be returning, but not in May - the weather is a little unsettled.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a deluxe room.

having read the reviews about the hotel, after i booked, i was abit nervous about the reception and standard of accomodation. the holiday was booked as a birthday treat for my birthday.
on arrival we were shown to a twin room, (when i booked i stated a double and i wanted to be in flamingo 2). the receptionist said this was the room we had booked, i wasn't happy but it was late and i didn't want to mess around.
we went to the bar for a drink and the manager overheard us moaning to the bar man...superman!...he told us to see him in the morning.
we had no problem changing rooms next day. it appears that booking agents don't explain to customers and display it clearly on their websites that flamingo one is cheaper than 2, and to stay in 2 you pay more. or you could book direct which we will do when we go back.
on my birthday a banner was hung outside our beautiful room wishing me a happy birthday and decorations were strung around the room.
we decided to eat in the hotel restaurent(we were b&b only) for my birthday and had a wonderful chicken cooked in a claypot. i was also presented with a birthday cake and a fruit platter. all with candles and sparklers!! it made for a very special unforgettable birthday.
the maid service was excellent. the staff were excellent. i wouldnt hesitate to go back again.
thanks to haken and his staff for a fab birthday holiday.

we were initally placed in a pool view room in flamingo 1 block, our balcony was literally overhanging the bar, was tiny and very run down . we paid extra, after much discussion,for a suite in the new block. this was gorgeous, and the cleaners were amazing.
our main issue was the bar staff , who seemed to attempt to rip us off each time we bought a drink. we tried to just pay cash but they really didnt like us not using their charge cards. even after paying cash we still had to dispute charges on our room card.other people also had problems with this too, in the main reception tried to sort it out. this soured the holiday for us.
The staff were pleasant to those who sat in the bar all day spending, anyone else was ignored, often to the piont of rudeness. we managed to get round the no drinks or food in the rooms policy , but this made us feel uncomfortable, and a little stressed. ( it was only water!!!)

Room Tip: only go if you are in the new block.
