This was a lovely hotel, once we got the room we booked!! The staff on arrival tried to put us is in a gloomy ground floor room with no view, I had read on trip advisor that this had happened to others so I insisted on seeing the manager but the chap who had taken us to our room tried to fob us off but I was insistent and followed him back to reception with cases and partner tagging behind. I was told oh we always have trouble with this company blah blah blah but I produced my original booking documents from our travel company which stated we had booked a de-lux room with side sea view. No argument then! We were escourted to a much better room with a sea view and balcony which made so much difference to our holiday. We went B/B Breakfast was good but really I wouldn't recommend going half,full board as we tried a couple of evening meals which were not that good - the food was much better in town. Whilst we were in Olu Deniz the temp was high 40's low 50's sooooo hot so of course water was a neccessity but we couldn't take a bottle of water to our room - we were expected to buy it from the hotel. We were stopped one night and warned if we were caught carrying water to our rooms it would be taken from us!!!! How petty!!! The hotel was also a few hundred yards from the beach and in the heat this seemed like miles. We didn't like the beach at Olu Deniz it was very tricky trying to get out of the sea due to the surf caused by the steep drop in the waters front so we used Billy's beach - now Billy's beach is heaven on the lagoon and the staff there are great - they even come and pick you up and drop you back at your hotel for free if you ring them - we highly reccommend Billy's Beach. We even went to a BBQ night there which was great with firedancers, a singer/guitarist,belly dancer, bonfire on the beach, free use of pedalos on the lagoon and plenty of great food.
All in all, once we got the right room we enjoyed our holiday in Olu Deniz at the Flamingo but for us Billy's Beach made the holiday much more pleasurable-thanks lads!!!!!!!! ps don't forget to have a turkish bath and massage - brill!!!!!
