We stayed in the Flamingo Self Catering Apartments (myself, husband, 2 children aged 6 & 4). The rooms were a very good size with 2 bathrooms, kitchen area, living area, separate bedroom and 2 balconies. The cleanliness was an excellent standard and the maids went out of their way to make the room look pretty. The pools were clean and the smaller downstairs pool was smaller and quieter but the turtle shaped larger pool was fairly busy. Downside being we ended up having to join in with the 'putting towels on sunbeds at ridiculous o'clock' which was a little annoying. The staff were amazing. They made us feel really welcome and were fab with the kids. They were so friendly and considering the hours they worked in that heat still had time to laugh and joke with all the guests. They made our holiday and we will miss them. They Turkish night they held was fab. The manager however did not seem as friendly, he seeemd to spend most of his time with one particular large group (3 couples with kids) so whether he knew them or just wanted to impress them as there were a lot of them I dont know but he did spend most of his time with them, whereas I think he should have checked on other guests too. The hotel is within 5 mins of Olu Deniz town and there are plenty of bars and restuarants to choose from. Our favourites were The Magic Garden as the staff were fab (just 2 mins from hotel) and Bella & Gusto as the food was amazing (on beachfront). We did not go the the main Lagoon as we ended up going to a private beach (Billys Beach) which i found really friendly but not quite as clean as people had said the lagoon was. Overall we all had a fabulous holiday and will definately be going back next year. The only thing I would like to see more of is evening entertainment or even a little disco for the children. Even thinking of 3 weeks and staying on a B&B basis which I believe is more basic but for the extra week I would consider it. Missing the place already.
