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.

I visited the 'Holiday Village Flamingo Beach' at the end of July/beginning of August 2016 and I was very impressed with the hotel. The entertainment staff were by far the best I've ever witnessed! We used the crÃ¨che facility available for the two-year-old and he thoroughly enjoyed it! The shows at night were spectacular in the blue moon bar, especially the tommys day celebration which we were lucky enough to be involved in during our stay. Other pool facilities were fab. Food is amazing and other hotel staff brilliant! The rooms were great too, with our own kitchen and large lounge/dining area which is very uncommon for an all inclusive. Overall a fab stay with a fab entertainment team!!More
Spent two weeks here. Four adults and three children aged between 3 and 5. After previous Holiday village visits to Menorca and Kos we had high expectations. Unfortunately it's not as good. We're far from fussy. The facilities for this hotel are just to small for the amount of people who stay at the hotel. The sun bed situation is an absolute joke all beds gone by 8pm everyday. There are positives. The food is really good. Especially the themed restaurants. The location is brilliant and the night time shows were great. The local beer Tropical is also really good. I can't say we didn't enjoy our time here. It was just OK and for price you pay you can get better.More
This was our first all inclusive holiday and our first holiday in a family beach resort. We travelled with our son, daughter in law and two grandchildren 2yrs and 15yrs.The accommodation was very good in fact spotlessly clean with a great view across to Furtaventura. Only problem was with the bathroom which flooded at times when you showered as it appeared it couldn't drain away quickly enough. The food was excellent and there were never any great queues of note when eating. In relation to sunbeds if you go past the main pool by eight in the morning its full...full of towels that is although I really couldn't see why as it was loud and busy all day every day. There are sunbeds to be had at other various locations on the site and we always found a sunbed thankfully not by the main pool. We swam daily in the sea and it was not that busy there although you could hear word perfect the entertainment team over the tannoy system from the main pool. There was a walk either way along the promenade one to to the town of Playa Blanca and the other towards a lighthouse although we never made it there to the light house that is. The staff at all times were friendly and helpful and the venue was always clean and tidy.. We did two trips one to the market on Sunday this was great value as you get a basic guided tour and history of Lanzarote included also a visit to a house in the mountain that Omar Shariff once owned but still not sure whether he actually went there but a good half day out for 15 euros. The other was to the Tex Wet and Wild bit like a zoo / water park yet again great value well thought out and you get there at ten and leave at four so not a drawn out day. The only negative was the Blue Moon bar there is definietly a strange smell by the bar area as you queue and also the entertainment revolves around there at night and is at times both hectic and chaotic. The night starts at 7pm with Peppa Pig and I suppose adult fun starts with the bingo at 9pm. I would say to stay here if you have two or more children aged say 5 to 11 then this is the place to go as it ticks all the boxes. If like us you normally stay in non child friendly hotels and stay here then just sit back and enjoy the chaos.More
Stayed: 21st - 28th July with a large family group. (8 adults 6 children ) Location: Excellent. The beach is on your door step. ( however was closed during our stay due to contamination ). A short walk will bring you into town ( approx 30 min or a couple of euros in a taxi ) Hotel: Personally i think the hotel was spotless and the cleaners never stop. Our room was excellent (a86) and had everything you needed. Hot water was never an issue for us. One slight issue i did have was that some of my sons toys ( little figures and a book that he loves) where lifted from our balcony on the night before we left. Its a shame but just ensure you put everything away at night. Other than this i found the complex very secure and regulalry seen security doing their rounds at night. The kids enjoyed the evening entertainment however none of the adults within our group liked the blue moon. ( all evening entertainment is indoors..) The smell coming from the bar area was awful (not sure what this was, but smelt like a mixture of sewage and possible sick ) it was very off putting and as a result we could not sit in the place. I really do think an outdoor evening entertainment place would be ideal. There is alot going on throughout the day but be warned, book as soon as you arrive for the likes of the ropes etc as unfortunately we left it to our 3rd day to book only to be told they where fully booked up until the day after we left.. Sunbeds....... where do i start, yes all the stories are true. You litterally have to be up 6 am to reserve ones around the main pool. Not once did i see any of these being removed. Tip: On our 3rd day we found a smaller pool at the very back of the complex, it has a large pool and a small kiddies pool ( it is just on over from the mini mouse pool ) and it is not as crowded. We even managed to get sun beds for everyone beside each other! The pools however do get very crowded however i suppose that is to be expected peak season All Incl - I have to say i found the found great. Plenty of choice and everyone always found something to eat. The option to eat in the other restaurants is also good. Tavern by the sea being my favourite, ( steak was lovely ) however the Italian was very disapointing due to very limited choice. Beer is Tropical and almost any spirits you want. The cocktails however where not as nice (pre mixed) and tasted nasty. You could however get a mojito freshly made which was nice. All in all it was a great holiday however my honest view is that the complex is not big enough to cater for the amount of guests it holds. This is very evident from the queues in the buffet, to the lack of sun beds to the number of people in the pools. Would i visit again? Am not sure, possibly out of season.More

This was our second family holiday in this resort and was mostly good. We traveled in July with 2 children aged 5 and 8. The entertainment team are excellent and really work hard to keep us all busy. Both our children did Razamataz and loved it, a big thank you to Mim and Heather. We had swimming lessons with Freya who is a natural with the children and definitely went the extra mile trying to get our little one in the water. Kids club is amazing and really do put the children first, we couldn't keep our eldest away. The food was as you expect for all inclusive although the main restaurants tables and chairs are looking pretty grubby, The tex mex restaurant was brilliant and definitely a high light for us. When we arrived we were given room 40 which is a bungalow with a lovely sea view. However this bungalow is right on the edge of the resort next to a building site which started drilling at 8am every morning. Also there was a strong smell of damp in the bungalow with plaster coming of the walls in the bathroom and bedroom. We complained to reception as soon as we could and was told the hotel was full and we would have to wait 4 days and see if a room came available. We were not happy with this after spending alot of money to come on holiday but they said there was nothing they could do apart from send maintenance to have a look! The pool gets really busy and there really isn't enough room around it for the size of this hotel, it does get a bit cosy. There seems do be a drainage problem around the main pool area therefore it does get quite grubby with overflowing showers and drains, also the pool is pretty dirty with black floating bits which gets worse towards the end of the day. Both are children had sickness for 2 days and I put this down to the poor pool hygiene. In short the first choice staff are all brilliant and work hard but we will not be going back.More
