We went to the Flamingo Country Club on Lake Tuzla in last September and found the management had basically closed all the facilities as they thought it was end of season.

Every six or so apartments had their own pool; that was great as we were the only ones in it all week!

You can also use two other resorts nearby: Turquoise, which is lovely and can highly recommend the restaurant; and Royal Heights, which has an infinity pool and a beach, which is basically decking on two levels and a large jetty- this is lovely. It has a lift to take you down as it is a very steep walk otherwise.

Everywhere around these resorts is very steep to walk as the apartments are built into the side of a mountain, so if you are unable to walk very far, then DEFINITELY hire a car! There is a shuttle bus, which will transport you from one resort to another, but only goes every hour and finishes at 9pm in September. There is also the bus service (or Dolmus) to take you into Bodrum (6 TL- very cheap) but it is a bumpy ride to the main road.

Bodrum is a very busy area at all times but it is pleasant enough. Turkish people are lovely and will help in any way they can, but many of them do not speak English, or only very little.

Flamingo C C can be recommended but be mindful of the walking, but the views from the apartments is to die for.

Everything apart from fuel is cheap and their beer, EFES, is gorgeous. Oh and try Turkish food: gorgeous and tasty, and oh so cheap to eat out every night.

As the apartments are S/C, go to the Migros supermarket about one mile from Flamingo: it has everything you need and cheap. If you want milk, look in the fresh chilled foods area and look for a glass bottle with a plastic red top, I think it has pink writing on then back. Don't buy anything else other than this as it wont be milk as we know it in the UK! Their fresh bread is to die for.
