To be honest, I thought that at this price there must be a catch but absolutely not. The owners could not have been more helpful both before the trip and when we were there.
The apartment has everything you could want and more and the resort facilities are superb. You can either be very private at one of the 17 pools or join the other residents down at the bar pool.
My three teenagers loved it. Flamingo is one of three resorts owned by the same people. The free shuttle bus will take you between all three so the facilities, which include tennis, golf, a spa, a nightclub, turkish bath etc are all available and mainly free.
Bodrum is easily accessible without a car by Dolmus (local small bus - about £2) which departs and returns every hour right through until 4am. The town is a fantastic mix of the modern and the ancient. We particularly enjoyed bartering with the shop owners and eating by the marina at Ali Baba's.
There are many organised trips available from tour operators in Bodrum at a very reasonable price including swimming with dolphins, a day trip to Kos, diving, trips to Ephesus and Dalyan for example. Most include lunch and are available for between £25 - £35. I would advise that you don't use the tourist office near to the camp - there were lots of complaints whilst we were there and had a bad experience ourselves. Other operators in town though seemed to deliver exactly what was promised. Ask around to find out who is recommended.
Highlights were the food - the resort food is good as is the fish restaurant at Royal Heights. Sunset (at the end of the road) is superb and the prices amazing. The turkish bath and massage on site. The trips into Bodrum. The beach at Basko (follow the signs), the infinity pool and the Turkish Night (complete with food, traditional dancers and a belly dancer) at Royal Heights, the slides at the pool at Turquoise, the trip to the Aquapark, Hubbly Bubbly and apple tea with Hassan at the carpet shop, sat cross legged outside on several evenings - he won't hassle you to buy anything but loves to tell you legends and to introduce people to each other and the bar staff at Flamingo playing table football, pool and table tennis with the kids - fabulous. Thank you guys!
But my abiding memories of Turkey will be of the heat and light, the fantastically friendly people, and how wonderful it was to have 2 weeks with my family somewhere so beautiful.
And it being non-euro helps too! Amazing value. Can't wait to go back.
We just returned from our 10 day stay at Flamingo Country Club and had a wonderfull time to relax.
Elizabeth's and Dave's apartment is almost brand new, spotless clean, tasteful decorated and with top equipment.... - ...a feeling like in your own home! We enjoyed very much the beautiful terasse and our almost "private pool". The nice warm to hot weather was ideal to use the outside area.
The Club is rather new and the entire personal has been very friendly.
We definitely can highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to have a quiet and relaxing stay without noise and constant activities.
Beside the owners have been very friendly and most helpful with a heap of pre-information.
Recommendet for settled travelers, interested in culture, families with younger children and for a romantic holiday.
