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.

Ok, but would not return
Stayed at the Flamingo Beach for one week in September 2014, with my husband and 2 year old Son. Transfer from the airport is approx 40mins. We had a standard apartment and it was fairly spacious, well equipped kitchen, TV, Air con (you pay a refundable €10), minor gripes are the showers quickly lost hot water and the bedroom was twin beds pushed together. The pools; the main pool is very busy and the sunbed situation is ridiculous, the sunbeds are "released" by the lifeguard at 9am, and on our way to breakfast we would see people stood in the spot they wanted their subbed to go, if you get there at 9:05 all the beds are gone, just off the main pool are two little paddle pools for toddlers. The main pool is quite noisy with all the reps hanging around doing activities. There is then a lane pool, where the swim academy also takes place, we didn't use the the swim academy but from what I saw the teachers seems excellent. There is then a smaller pool for toddlers and babies which is much quieter and nicer. The restaurants; the main restaurant is like a canteen, not a relaxing experience at all, the food is fine and plenty of choice and have no complaints about the staff, but there are simply not enough staff to be clearing the tables, locating high chairs etc, the staff that are there work very hard but there are not enough and mealtimes feel like hard work. We ate at each of the speciality restaurants (these were pre hooked on your behalf by reception and you get tickets with the date you attend on arrival). Green and Grill - nice steaks, still buffet style, can also go here for lunch. Tavern on the sea - waiter service which made a pleasant change, nice food here, best of the bunch for me, Italian - again waiter service, this was ok. And tex mex, which is above the main restaurant, you can have breakfast here. The resort itself is ok, 2 mins from the small beach, couple of supermarkets, and then approx 15-20 min walk into the town, bars and restaurants and few shops but nothing special and not much to see. We went to the waterpark which is just down the road, €20 per adult, it is fairly small but we had a nice day. Entertainment, in the main bar the kids entertainment is on approx 7-9 each night, the team seem to work hard but it is very repetitive and a bit dated. First choice reps, shockingly bad customer service from them, we had a issue with our return flight and were told the only thing we could do to resolve it was pay £225, so we phoned head office ourselves and they resolved the matter free of charge, the reps are more interested in trying to sell you stuff and acting daft around the pool than actually delivering a good service in my opinion. All in all, the hotel is ok, food ok, entertainment ok, reps poor. I wouldn't return.More

Brilliant family holiday
We arrived home Sunday (21st September) we had a fantastic time, the holiday was really enjoyable. We travelled with our children 8,6&1 and there was plenty to do for them all. This is a holiday village so is aimed at family's, although we did meet lovely couples who enjoyed being in the company of other people and their families. The hotel is lovely and clean, the food was good, but I do think the hotel needs to look at what food goes together as a meal as sometimes it was a bit of a mix match, but still plenty of choice. We ate breakfast upstairs as it's a bit more quieter, they don't open until 8am there though. The maid service was really good and always made a good job of our room. We had a sea view, so the beach was just a stone throw away. The room was lovely, apart from the two single beds being pushed together for a double, the problem was solved straight away when we spoke to reception so the beds no longer came apart. We did upgrade to the superior room but felt there wasn't much extra, apart from a DVD player, sun beds on terrace, dressing gown and slippers, you also get to use the spa once but we didn't get chance. I think the hotel needs to look at that. The kids club was fantastic, welshy, king matt, josh, danni, ant, Ashley, mikey, I know I've missed names! Sorry! Swimming academy was brilliant, Carolyn was fantastic with our daughters, Laura is lovely to! Entertainment team were brilliant as well, lois, Lacey, Sophie and rick. (I can't remember the other young mans name) Everyone works so hard! There are a few things the hotel could change/add to make it more of a holiday village experience and I know there is a couple of negatives in my review but overall a lovely holiday, thank you for make our holiday wonderful :) More
Ingnore bad reviews fab holiday
We visted this hotel 14th September for a week. After reading the reviews on here i was quite wary about this holiday. When we arrived at the resort the receptionist was very helpful they even provided us a buffet as we arrived at 11pm. We had room 52b which was near everything rooms where fantastic loads of room at the balcony was very spacious. The beds where 2 single pushed together and the bathroom had loads of ants so watch ur tooth brush. The pool area was very busy and people where saving spaces with towels as the beds where not released till 9am. There is other pools which where spacious and loads of sunbeds. The entertainment team where brill worked hard with the children loads to do. Food was ok there was varity for everyone. Overall fantastic holiday recommend booking this hotel xMore
We have arrive to the hotel around 11pm via private transfer (45min drive from the airport) which was great and would recommend if you have a small children. We travelled as a family two adults and 2,5 year old son. This saves you so much hassle as you do not wait for anyone. We checked into our apartment, we had a little snack such as large bottle of water, small bottle of wine and some biscuits which came handy after a long journey. Apartment was small but modern, clean but quite hot. We have paid deposit for air con remote control . If you do not pay deposit you will be without A/C and trust me you need it. However 3 days in to our trip the air con was not working so we have been moved to a bungalow. We missed our welcome meeting from first choice team but it was easy to find our way around. Breakfast was superb, lots of choices. All the staff working in the hotel from reception, housekeeping, restaurant staff were very polite and helpful. We went around the complex to familiar ourself with where everything is. Map given to us by reception was very helpful. We have hired towels Euro 10 each, from supermarket, I have used the laundrette twice which was very handy. Our son was very keen on crèche. You can come with your child for half an hour to familiarise yourself and your child with the environment as well as meet the staff. Crèche was run by First choice, everyone was very helpful and made my son to feel welcome. He went to crèche a few times and enjoyed it. Food was outstanding during our stay! We did not bother with reserving loungers next to the pool as there was plenty of space when ever and where ever pool we went. Evening disco was very much enjoyed by all the kids especially my son, First choice entertainment team worked very hard and they did a great job! I cant remember their names all were fantastic. I have spoken to the admin team especially Beth, she was very helpful, we booked Submarine safari, they pick you up at the hotel, nice trip but the safari itself was quite short ( 45min including boarding and off boarding the submarine at Euro53 per adult and Euro24 per child) and we did not see much so that was a bit disappointing . Hotel have a fantastic sandy beach we used everyday. Very clean, warm water very family orientated. Beach was open to public . Walking distance to town and shops along side the sea about 20min walking . We went to market which takes place on Sat and wed in marina and take you about 1h walking or taxi around Euro 6. one way. There was one thing which I was not happy about and that was my experience with Doctors. Doctor is based at the hotel daily from 9am-9.30am or from 5pm-5.30pm. If you need a doctor out of hours you can go to reception and they can call him or use international clinic not far from hotel. Unfortunately I got stung by a jelly fish 4 days before we suppose to leave. I went to reception to ask what to do. Two choices you can go to international clinic with your E11 insurance card or wait for the doctor who was on his way. I decided to wait. She explained it is a private doctor so charge will apply. Approx Euro 90. I have been told I need injection to the sting, which I had and to come back next day to pick up paperwork for my insurance and see the sting if every is OK. I asked about the charges and the doctor said he will tell me tomorrow but I have to pay cash. Next day there was a different doctor, he gave me a single peace of paper which was the bill Euro 130 . I went to pick up money from cash point but when I returned he advised me that he forgot to charge me for '' today's consultation'' another Euro 80. He crossed the old sum and changed it to Euro 210. I have refused to pay unless I get a proper medical report and proper bill. He asked me to come at 5pm. When I spoke to Beth about doctor's charges she said anything from 50 to 70 Euro per consultation however picking up the bill next day I did not consider to be a consultation. I did pay and had my paperwork corrected. I have spoken to others who seek medical assistance and because the doctor was not there they went to medical clinic and with the E11 card they will see you but you have to pay the full bill in cash. I know we all do have medical insurance but it is a hassle to get cash together so quickly and especially no one advise you the charges beforehand. The doctors charges should have been on information board. I felt like they charging what ever they like just because we have a travel insurance. Other than this I would go back again and recommend to everyone.More

Holiday village Lanzarote 5 Stars
Me my husband and 3 yr old daughter stayed in room 41b in September. We arrived around 1.30 am due to our flight being delayed 4 and 1/2 hours. We were told on the coach to make sure we take some bottled water to our hotel as obviously at that time there would be nothin open. We needn't have worried. We got to the hotel and were given a bottle of water and were told a cold buffet was waiting for us in the restaurant!!!! The room was lovely and clean and comfortable and was situated outside of the 'Green and Grill' restaurant/entrance to kids pool area. The main pool area was always kept clean and tidy and Luis the lifeguard/pool manager couldn't do enough for you. All the hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic with lots of different choices so you never got bored. The entertainment was amazing. The reps really were the creme de la creme. Iv never seen as many kid friendly reps in one place. They would 'hi 5 ' all the kids whenever they saw you. There energy and enthusiasm was unreal. They really go the extra mile. The resort was 2 mins from the beach for days when you wanted something a bit less lively. It was really clean with clear water and you could see the little fish swimming around your feet. All in all one of the best holidays we've had and we will definitely return. More
