Pools, a splash park, a bumper activities list, and loads of restaurants – this place has got the lot. It’s right on the beach, too.
This beachfront hotel ticks all the right boxes, with a great pool scene, 5 restaurants and a giant Aerial Adventure course. There are sports like kayaking, tennis and football as well.
Apartments received a makeover for summer 2014, so they’re in tip-top condition. They’re nice and big, too, with a lounge, kitchenette and outside space.

We visited this hotel 23-30 June. Stayed in a 2 bed bungalow which was refurbished to good standard. Excellent location for a quieter pool away from the main entertainment pool, even better location for the sheltered beach which is just steps away. The food was varied for all inc buffet style meals. One night in the annexed Italian was disappointing as they did not have enough room for our party of 10 to sit inside so we were placed in what I would describe as a wind tunnel! Food and service was good One major downside unfortunately was in respect of the lifeguard on duty one day at the quiet pool. An incident occurred which required us to report the matter to the lifeguard. A member of our party went up to him for assistance only to (1) find him fast asleep in his chair and 2) spoke little English meaning conversation was difficult. This has been reported to Thomson given it is in fact quite serious. Would never expect a lifeguard to be asleep on the job All in all a very good hotel. Clean resort, nice food, good accommodation. Excellent location. More
Just returned from 10 nights at this First Choice Holiday Village with my wife and two daughters (4 and 1yo) Stayed in a standard one-bed apartment (35B) and enjoyed a view directly of the Green and Grill restaurant....and not much else lol But location-wise was ideal for us; only a few mins walk to the main pool and buffet restaurants in one direction and the beach and quiet pool in the other. The wifi was pretty much non-existent for me in most areas of the complex. The food and drink is pretty good for the all inclusive package we were on, and nicely punctuated with one visit to each of the four a la carte restaurants. Our favourite was the Tex-Mex Bellavista restaurant! The Tavern by the Sea was also great. During the day you had plentiful supply of beer and soft drinks, tea and coffee at both pools. And freezers full of small pots of Walls ice cream! Delicious :-) Pools were cold, but you soon acclimatised to them within a few minutes of getting in. The sunbed situation however was laughable! Even though there were signs stating the reservation of beds wasn't allowed, but one once during our stay did the life guards remove towels from the main pool. So unless you were up and armed with your towel before 8am, you would disappointed especially by the main pool. Therefore we stuck the quiet pool which wasn't as bad. Was welcoming to here the Little Stars kids club (3-5yo) were free and our 4yo daughter loved the 4 sessions she attended. The local Flamingo Beach is idyllic, especially come late afternoon! There aren't any sunbeds or parasols unfortunately, but the beach is sandy and clean, and the water calm and crystal clear. Best of all were the staff, especially the tireless and hard working bar and restaurant staff. Big mentions to the very welcoming Tui in the sadly quiet Atlantic Bar, Telma at the quiet pool bar, and waiter called Omar who seemed to be working in every restaurant every night!More

Went with my husband 2 daughters & partners & 3 grandchildren aged 10, 9 & 6. The children really enjoyed the children's clubs and the staff were very friendly and pleasant especially Issac. We had a room on the 1st floor which had a wonderful view of the sea. Rooms were big & spotlessly clean. There was kettle, microwave & fridge, We took some tea bags with us & had nice cup of tea in a morning before going to breakfast. I found the dining areas quite noisy but that was to be expected when you go to a family hotel. Food was OK but not the best I have ever had. It was nice when you could go the themed evenings at different restaurants around the complex. The beach was wonderful especially for the children only downside which has been said before there was no sunbeds. Overall we had a wonderful holiday but would not go back as we would like to try other family hotels.More

Fun fortnight at Flamingo Beach
My husband and I struggled to agree on where to go this summer and having had a great holiday at Flamingo Beach in October with my husband's family (6 adults & 4 kids) we decided to visit again, just us with our 4 year old daughter this time. Check in was a breeze and we found our sea view room with ease. We booked a superior room (we didn't last time) and were surprised that the room was smaller with a smaller balcony. That aside it was adequate for our needs and had a beautiful view towards Fuerteventura. The food set up is good. 4 evening bookings for the themed restaurants (our favourite was the Mexican) and a great buffet restaurant for the other evenings. You get 4 bookings whether you stay for 7 or 14 nights but reception will book you in wherever you like as long as you give them notice. We also went to the Chinese next to the hotel a couple of times for a change. Reasonably priced and good food (also has good wifi which the hotel was lacking). We had the same gripe as others regarding the beds round the pool. We are not early risers but were surprised there were so few beds available by 9.00. The pools were quite cold in our first week but warmed up loads in the second week. We spent most of our time at the beach though. The beach is relatively small, but the sea is calm and very safe for our 4-year old to play. It was much easier pitching up next to the high tide mark and letting our daughter run in and out of the sea and build sand castles than accompanying her to the pool every 5 mins while she jumped in, got cold and got out again! One of the themed restaurants, La Bambola serves lunch just by the beach so you don't have to trek up to the main hotel to eat. The First Choice team do a great job from morning to midnight catering for adults and kids alike. We didn't use the kids club until very late in our holiday but our daughter enjoyed it immensely. She also had swimming lessons with Rob from Swim Academy - who she loved!!!! He helped her improve her swimming technique which has improved her confidence in the water. The entertainment team deserve a special mention - Callum, Dave, Amy and Chantal are on the go from 9am til midnight. They are up amusing the kids, hi-fiving with the widgets in the morning and still going until the Cabaret finishes at night. The entertainment may not be to everyone's taste, but the effort that goes into ensuring there is something to watch every night is to be applauded. One of the entertainment team was injured while we were there so Amy, Callum and Dave had to rework many of the acts from 4 to 3 creating even more work for them. They also take time to chat to the guests after the cabaret has finished which is lovely. If you want a reasonably priced family holiday and enjoy the Holiday Village setup, Flamingo Beach is great. If you want 5* luxury, head elsewhere and pay twice the price.More

Excellent family holiday
We visited here from 14th-28th June 2015 with our 4 and 2 year olds. Our room was in a perfect location for us-a bungalow in the quiet area which backed into the childrens Mickey Mouse pool. Although our room was up a few steps (as a lot of them are) we soon got used to carrying the pushchair up and down the steps and it wasn't a problem. The rest of the resort is well equipped for buggies and wheelchairs and I'm sure if you specifically ask-you would get a room where you don't need to get up and down steps. We were very impressed with the food for an all inclusive. There was always a large selection of foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We loved the freshly cooked tuna steaks in the evenings and big chunks of fresh roasted salmon and carvery meats on offer (there tends to be a different meat/fish every night). My daughter is fussy and would only eat limited foods but she loved the chocolate fountain. My son will eat anything and the kids buffet always looked delicious and well presented. The steak at the Green and Grill was delicious and we loved the tex mex (you get one visit to these during your stay). The location of this holiday village couldn't be any better. A short walk to the gorgeous beach and all rooms have a sea view. Playa Blanca is only a 10-15 min walk along the sea front and the Rubicon Marina (well worth a visit in the day and at night) is beautiful and is another 20 mins walk from Playa Blanca. We walked it but hired another buggy from reception as my daughter couldn't walk that far and it is a long walk but a few people we spoke to got taxis which are quite cheap. The staff at the resort are all so friendly and helpful. They all take time to speak to the children and made such an effort. They work so hard and never seem to moan or look annoyed at cleaning up the mess some disgraceful people leave by the pools or on the floors in the restaurants (food all over the floor or dirty cups and empty ice cream pots). There are plenty of bins around and in all the resort was very clean. The maids came about 4-5 times a week and made the beds/changed towels. The Blue Moon bar wasn't our thing and was full of older children (and the entertainment wasn't great) so we went to the quieter Atlantic Bar which had a childrens playground outside which my daughter loved and this is where the younger children seemed to be. The wifi was better at the Atlantic Bar than in reception too. We all loved the holiday so much and will definitely return. This is the first holiday village we have been to and we were very impressed.More
