“Amazing Hotel”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

We have been returning to this hotel for the last 8 years. Hakan & staff make the stay so enjoyable. Great location, clean accommodation, good food GREAT atmosphere. It's the only place we have ever returned to, and we look forward to our annual trip. Strongly recommend a stay at this wonderful hospitable hotel. Look forward to returning in September 2013 can't wait :-)))

Room Tip: All rooms are great but check out the Deluxe ( fantastic)

Stayed at this hotel soo many times and it just gets better and better :) lovely rooms, awesome makeover of the hotel, nicest and most friendly staff in Olu Deniz, great pools, yummy food. Have never left this hotel disappointed and would recommend it to anyone. I have stayed in other hotels in Olu Deniz but this is by far superior. Hakan and team will make your stay amazing no doubts. Hope to be back there in September xx

Our first stay in Turkey for a week in June, and very pleased with the hotel. We had a family suite and my daughter had a twin room with her friend. The family suite was very spacious, two bathrooms, one of which was more of a shower room. Great shower though. Air conditioning in both parts, and is exactly like the suite you see in the video. Very clean. The chambermaids must have know I like flowers as I put the ones in vases that they put on the beds, and more arrived the next day, very thoughtfull. The girls twin was more like th upstairs bar, but again suitable for two with a good bathroom. Breakfast was okay, we only stayed bed and breakfast as we wanted to try out other places in the resort. The lovely Katie and all the other staff were very welcoming, and the girls enjoyed the cocktails made for them by the bar man. Lovely clean pools and surroundings. Compared to other hotels in the resort, this one is situated away from the main centre which was great as you came back to a peaceful sanctuary .

Room Tip: We stayed in suite 911 (cyprus), which was at the end of the block but if you are not that great wit...

Just got back after my 4th visit to the Flamingo with friends i meet up with each year. The hotel just keeps getting better!! Hakan the Manager is a great bloke, always friendly and making sure things are ok. The new staff are lovely, very attentive. It was lovely to see Hakan and Zaff again. I also saw Claire and the new baby too.

This hotel is definitley one of the better hotels in Olu Deniz as I have stayed in quite a few of them over the years as i go back each year for the paragliding. The improvements Hakan has made and is continuing to make is gonna get this hotel right up in the ratings.

The breakfast is typical Turkish, but great for me and the evening meal (my friend and i stay half board) is excellent! We have meals out but the food is so nice we cant resist.

I have attached a flying photo i took from the air while flying over it on my paraglider :)

Well done Hakan and your team, me and my support crew will see you all next year :) xx

Room Tip: Delux rooms are lovely

This was mine and my husbands first holiday child free and what a wonderful holiday it was.
On arrival we were greated by the lovely Katie who showed us around the hotel and to our room.
ROOM
We had a family room which was spacious, clean and had a lovely view of the upper pool and mountains. This was cleaned by the lovely cleaning ladies every day to a very high standard. These ladies were always smiling and greeted you on a daily basis.
If possible, do book a delux room, these are brand new and the height of luxury. Beautifully designed.
BREAKFAST
There was a plentiful supply to suit all tastes ranging from a traditional Turkish breakfast consisting of meats, cheeses, olives etc to muesli with yogurts and dried fruits, fresh melon, boiled eggs, fresh breads and the most varied choice of jams, marmelaids and honey. Coffee, tea and juice was also supplied. The food served at lunchtimes was good value and very tasty. We did stay for dinner a couple of evenings which again was superb. Fillet steak for around £9!!! This was exceptional. The dinning area was spotless, fresh and beautifully designed. The waiters were helpful and very friendly. Marco was always there at breakfast to greet you and on a daily basis went out of his way to ensure your meals were of a high standard. Nothing was too much trouble.
BAR
Deniz the barman and chief cocktail extraordinaire was sociable, friendly, fun and welcoming. He would concoct the most amazing drinks alcoholic or non alcoholic. His cappuccinos were superb too.
Throughout the day whilst relaxing around the beautiful quiet pool, the staff would come and take your drink orders and if they saw you struggling to carry anything to the pool sunbeds, they would come running and take over. Just so accommodating.
POOL.
We spent our days relaxing around the quiet pool which was stunning. There is another pool where you can enjoy a bit more of a lively day if required and tends to cater more for the families with children which to be honest was fab seen as though we had no children with us this year. Total chill out.
Always beds available and if there wasn't, Marco and the boys would bring beds from the upper pool down which I've never seen happen in all the holidays we've previously been on. This also seemed to eliminate the early morning towel laying brigade, again a first for us.
HAKAN the manager,
What a fantastic chap! He could not do enough for you. One evening I commented on the lovely vintage tea cups the cappuccinos were served in and where I could get them from. The very next day I was presented with a beautiful box containing six cups and saucers which Hakan had kindly had delivered from the shop in Fetyhe which he uses.
During my stay, I went down with a heavy cold, Hakan took it on himself to make me special herbal teas throughout the day and when I was left with a horrid cough, I was then given honey and fresh ginger which was served to me at breakfast with the instructions of two teaspoons every few hours. Best medicine ever! Thank you Dr Hakan :-)
Where else would you get such personal care and attention?
EATING OUT,
We found a few lovely restaurants which we were recommended by fellow holiday makers.
SECRET GARDEN.... Lovely Turkish food at very reasonable prices.
OBA restaurant.... Again lovely food and reasonable prices.
KARBEL A LA CART and CAFE.... Fab Sword fish steaks and cakes to die for.
PARAGLIDING,
I'm not brave enough but the husband was. Unfortunately he did have a slight accident on take off where he and the pilot fell about 10 meters down the cliff. Few cuts and grazes but after the second take off landed safely and it really was no bodies fault, just one of those things. If your brave enough, go with GRAVITY as they are the most professional company.
As you have probably already guessed, I cannot fault this hotel and cannot wait to book again for next year although it won't be child free haha! Our 16 year old will be joining us :-)
