“Pleasant Hotel and ideal location”
Reviewed 12 January 2013

We felt we had to include our own review for this hotel. We stayed in August and found it a very clean hotel. The rooms were just what you would expect on holiday, a good size and cleaned every day and yes, they didn't have much in the lines of storage so we had to keep some things in our cases but overall they were fine. Besides we were out all day anyway, so it was ideal for just changing in and sleeping in. The upper pool is ideal for smaller children as the larger pool near the dining rooms tends to be more for older children and adults. Food is ok, but we were only B & B anyway and coffee and toast did us fine most mornings along with some fruit. The barman does tend to play the same type of music each night but if you ask him to play something he will try and find it for you and he likes to sing along most of the time to his favourites but again, we didn't spend much time there as we like to go out and about. He will always give you a receipt if you ask and you can pay the next day at reception. It is a 10 minute walk to the beach but you can either go straight down the main road or turn left outside the hotel to wander through the roads to 'Hassle street' as they call it. This is great for bars and restaurants, shops and just people watching. The waiters will all shout to you and try and call you but a simple no thanks, is fine and they smile and bid you good day. Our favourite bars were Buzz, Antiques Bar and Dreams (which is nearer the hotel and the lads put on a great show for you). A trip to Fethye market is a must and you can take the bus outside the hotel (at the bottom of the slope near Dreams bar) for a couple of pounds. The food there is amazing and all the fake bags, shoes etc (when you see signs saying Cheap as Asda/Primark/Matalan - you have to laugh). The bus also takes you to Hisonaru at the top of the mountain - lots more to see there and only 5 minutes on the bus. Our room was quite a way from the main reception (third floor) and the balcony faced the mountain but to the right you had a great view of Olu Deniz and the sea. I think we only heard prayers on a few occasions but slept through the rest and yes, we could hear the bar music but it didnt bother us and we kept the windows open! Reception were always helpful and you can book most of your trips either with your rep or by using the travel companies in town. Don't just stay on the main road in the town but take a walk through the side streets too as there are some nice bars and restaurants there too. Another bonus was the on site hairdresser and beauty salon and it was lovely to have my hair done (about £10) and get a nice manicure and pedicure (£8 each) during our stay. We would stay there again , our son had a great time - mostly in the pool every day and it was very relaxing plus we found it an ideal location and had a very pleasant holiday there.

We stayed here from the 3rd of October untill the 9th, we just had a week here, we had booked one of the deluxe side sea view rooms and we were pleased with our choice, we were in room 301 which overlooked the bar area and the pool below, and in front of us was the Mountains, what a lovely veiw to wake up to in the mornings as we left our balcony door and curtain open all night. The room was large and very clean and so was the bathroom, the only thing that we found lacking was there wasnt enough room for clothes just a small wardrobe and some single drawers, they could easily fit in a few chest of drawers as there were plenty of space, but we managed fine. The breakfast was fine ,a typical Turkish breakfast and although the coffee was nice we took our own tea bags down to breakfast to use, (we always do this were ever we go)

We went on a bed and breakfast basis as we like to go out in the evening to eat out and have a drink although when we got back at night we would have a drink at the bar in the hotel.

We had lunch time snacks at the hotel and they were fine and the prices were the same as in the resort bars and restaurants.

The Hotel is situated in a quiet part of Olu Denez but not too far to walk down to the front.

We had two lovely meals in the Magic Garden restaurtant which is about 10 minutes walk away after seeing the reveiws on Trip Advisor and it lived up to its reputation.

If we come back to Olu Denez we would certainly come back to this Hotel

I stayed here for 8 nights in August, and won't be returning.

The hotel staff are rude, the bar staff immature and were acting like children every time we saw them. It was all very disorganised and unprofessional.

The music until 5am was absolutely unbearable! If you like Cliff Richard, Abba and Celine Dion then go for it; otherwise steer well clear of this hotel!

Our room was basic, the bathroom sufficient although slightly grubby,

It's a no-frills hotel but for the price I expected much more, although it's worth paying just for the location.

Approach with caution!

We arrived in the early hours of Monday morning , trip had gone really well, Easy Jet then transfer all went brilliantly. When we arrived at the hotel we were told by the night porter that we had no booking, even though we had a booking voucher, and we would have to stay in the hotel up the road and sort it out in the morning.
Other guests had the same problem also some in the guest book.

Eventually got a room and the hotel was very good, rooms clean , good room service good food , beds a bit hard, food , pool and bar all very good a bit of nightly disturbance from the nearby mosque.

Overall the hotel was clean, large and in a good location... but the waiter’s service were appalling! For some reason they didn’t like us at all.. In the morning.. a few minutes before breakfast was due to finish. While our bread was in the toaster still it would reach 10am and they would just pull the plug out and say that’s it! They were extremely rude to us..

Another down side was that there was a mosque right near the hotel and started their prayers at 5am which used to wake us up every morning! (Which didn’t help when we had a late night or early start!!!). The beds were also not the comfiest.. especialy on the pull out/3rd person bed... we asked for a new one 2-3times but they said they had done it but we felt no difference! There is a charge for air con and the use of the safe, but this is all said on their website so it wasn't a shock. Most hotels there charge for this.

On the plus side.. the rooms were cleaned every day, the maids were friendly and helpful if you needed anything... wasn’t much cupboard space so we lived in our suitcases, but for 3 people in one room, we were comfortable.. the pool area was really nice and large… we used to sit there quite often.

Location was good and a 10-15min walk to the main beach.. Free shuttle services from hotel ran to the other beaches but were limited times.. And all excursions come to hotel to pick you up.

It’s a good hotel if you are not going to be around it much. We were out every day and all day most days and just needed somewhere clean to sleep at. Wouldn’t stay there again… some other friends were staying at The Magic Tulip Beach hotel and the service was much better there and really close to the beach.. so I would stay there next time!

We stayed here for 7days B & B from 21st-28th September,
We had a great time, we were in Deluxe room with side sea view, the room was very clean and the view was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a bit of a climb to our room but it was worth it for the view. I would definately stay here again but it would have to be one of the 3rd floor deluxe rooms like we had this time. The Pool areas were lovely and kept clean. Breakfast was fine, although for 3 days we went to our Buzz beachfront bar for a proper coffee and cup of tea. We did take our own kettle/teabags etc for the room. We loved the position of the hotel and the walk to the beach was fine.
The only critism I had was the barman playing Elvis songs over & over at 2am in the morning, We did wish they had more variety and updated their music selection. But overall we had a great time here and would definately return.

Room Tip: If your fit enough go for Deluxe Side Sea room bit of a climb but worth it for the view

We stayed at the Flamingo Hotel for 11 nights. 13th sept to 24th sept. We had a 2hrs flight delay so arrived at 6am but got checked in very easily and taken straight to our room, porter carried both our cases up 2 flights of stairs, he showed us how to use aircon and left us to get straight to bed. Reception is lovely and clean modern and new looking, staff were always helpful. Our room was spacious clean modern and maids were in every day. We were in room 907(spain). Two Lovely pools and plenty sunbeds. If you ask for a copy of bar receipts you can easily keep a tally of what you are spending or just pay daily at reception. We enjoyed the location as you could just wander down several different ways to the main area and the beach which allows you to explore olu deniz. National park area is stunning and we also took a dolamus up to Montana pine hotel where you can walk along a forrest track called the Lycian Way. Absolutely Fab views of the whole resort and beach. Flamingo Hotel is perfect.I would definately recommend it to friends and would stay there again.

Room Tip: we were in room 907, away from the bar and poolsides so it was quiet and private
