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.

no good for couples
First time and the last time, there is no adult etertainment, no adult eating areas. We ate in the cafe couldn't even call them restaurants. Thomson winter brochure describe fine dining there is none. Walking into the cafe first time for breakfast I can only liken it to the feeding area for monkeys in the zoo, we had to step over children of which there was hundreds there was food all over the floor at one point children had a food fight. On speaking to thomson rep sam she informed me it was a scandanavian holiday village and english season was finished oh dear they took plenty of my english money. it was the worst holiday we have ever had and will never book with thomson again. we had a good night sleep because everything shut down for 11pm. The rooms are pleasant but the unfortunately the towels have holes in and they are like tissues. the only good thing about the hotel is the bus that takes you to airport.More

Just what the doctor ordered!
We went to Flamingo Beach on 19th October for two weeks with our family of 5 staying in a two bed apartment (1D) and my parents staying in a 1 bed superior apartment. This was a highly anticipated holiday following a very tough couple of years for my family, we had viewed the tripadvisor reviews closely before making our choice, the location appeared great, and was, we were just off a beautiful beach with walks or if your running enthusiasts like my parents runs, in both directions along the coast, one way leading to a lighthouse the other to a harbour. A few minutes away was the Aqua Lava watermark which we'd highly recommend and there is a volcano within walking distance you can explore if you have the energy, the view is worth it! We would also recommend the excursion to Timafaya and the submarine trip, both very enjoyable experiences. Our apartment was really big, newly refurbished and exceptionally clean which was maintained throughout our stay by the cleaners who work tirelessly but with a smile on their faces, the location is brilliant with views of the main pool from the kids bedroom and a living room, 2nd bedroom and large private balcony overlooking the sea. We were close to the restaurants and kids clubs but we're not disturbed by noise. We were very impressed with the food and the amount of choice, we particularly enjoyed the green and Grill choosing to eat here mostly for lunch and we had a lovely dinner at the Tavern by the Sea, in the mornings we generally favoured Tex Mex, with lovely views. It's the first holiday we've done with kids clubs and our 3 kids fell into different age categories but at times they did things together and they loved every session, the parties that were organised and They had a lot of fun doing the family raft building. The reps were scaling back for the end of the season and it seemed a shame they were obviously packing up during the half-term week ready for the 31st October when they finished but they did work tirelessly and enthusiastically to make it fun for the kids giving us a much needed time out. Mickey and Josh were partially popular with our kids. Our 2 eldest children really enjoyed the high wire course too. The whole resort was clean friendly and we encountered no trouble getting a sun bed! Summing up even after 2 weeks we didn't want to go home! To the hotel, it would be good if the Wi-fi was better, we struggled & we'd have enjoyed our balcony more if it had more comfortable furniture and parasol like my parents superior apartment ( but I guess that's one advantage of upgrading!)More
This was our first time in Lanzarote and our holiday was superb. We travelled with small children, all of them under 7 Years old. This resort had just the right activities for them. The resort had many pools to choose from. At first the water felt cold, but you got used to it. And the beach close nearby is fantastic. The breakfast was good, we preffered to go upstairs to the Bella Vista restaurant. Same thing at the dinnerbuffet, upstairs is more quiet to enjoy your food. We took a buss to Puerto Del Carmen to go shopping at the Biosfera mall. The mall was a disappointment and we did not get the buss back, although we checked the timetable. The taxi back home was 30 eur. A small complaint about the hotels WiFi, it did only work occasionally. But maybe it is in purpose, then you cannot spoil your holiday surfing on the internet.This trip was a good holiday and we will certainly choose this nice resort again if we come back some day.More
Another. Fantastic holiday
This is our second visit to this resort and I can only say we were not disappointed in fact it was even better. The staff are so friendly the resort clean and well kept the accomodation fitted out to a high standard with a kitchen sitting room bedroom and bathroom. Also a terrace with lounging chairs as well as table and chairs and parasol to relax on. The food excellent with plenty of choice with a wide variety of dishes to suit all ages and taste. I would say this is the best food we have encountered at all the various places we have stayed in Lanzarote. We are a couple in our 60's and yes there are children but they in general were extremely well mannered and well behaved we had some very happy times watching the children enjoying themselves with their parents playing in the pools enjoying meeting them as well such lovely people. Thankyou to Victor for allocating us a bungalow with a sea view in a quiet location personally we enjoy the walk through the grounds to the restaurant for our meals the trees and plants along the paths are interesting and many spectacular from the fruiting bananas to the cacti and the flowering shrubs in vibrant colours I was particularly taken with the hibiscus in flower. I cannot comment on the entertainment as it is not something we go to in general. I would recommend the resort to anyone as a great place to stay as we cannot fault it and certainly will be looking to return again.More

Fantastic holiday well worth a visit
Really lovely, modern resort. The rooms are spacious and clean and location is perfect! All staff were so friendly and welcomed you each time you went to the restaurant. The food was superb with the chocolate fountain as an added bonus! Plenty of pools to choose from to suit every holiday maker. Plenty of workers around maintaining the high standard of gardens and cleanliness. If u want a relaxing holiday with everything close by then this is the hotel for you. We've been there twice now and plan to go bk because it really is a brilliant hotel.More
