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.

Excellent for families with young children
Realised that the hotel(apart hotel) is going to be quite big,didnt realise until we arrived at reception that it was a holiday village. Checking in was very quick,our apartment was on the same level as the reception,just about 100m away with(Quoted,side view of sea)had a very good view of the sea from our balcony,the apartment was large ,airy,large bathroom ,large bedroom ,plenty of clothes hangars fitted out kitchen with everything but a washing machine,there is a local laundry matt on site.,large bed with lovely crisp clean bedding,Housekeeping was very good even providing extra towels on request,lovely and quiet. The food was in my humble opinion very unadventurous chips with every meal,the usual breakfast us Brits like bacon eggs, hash browns, beans,breakfast pork sausages which i really like and have eaten in about every hotel restaurant on holiday over the past 10 years on the whole the food was edible and for all our cousins out there who have a food allergy,all and i mean all the food is flagged from peanut to gluten to dairy etc.etc...THE BLUE MOON BAR is where all the evening entertainment takes place by an on site troupe of Thomson people it was ok ,abit loud but the families seem to like it.There are other pool bars on the site open during the day but at night its THE BLUE MOON,OR THE ATLANTIC SPORT BAR which we frequented every evening and had our drinks outside as the weather was very clement. There is a beach attached to the HOLIDAY VILLAGE, very clean with lots of sunbeds payable on the beach) when checking in at reception you get 2 tickets for evening meals ,1 in the GREEN AND GRILL the meal,sirloin steak and big sausage both good,but the rest of the meal was what you got during the day.The other ticket was for THE TAVERN ON THE BEACH, 6 tapas to start all excellent,fillet steak for main with real chips not skinny fries and to finish hot chocolate brownie with various creams.. would i recommend this hotel,yes i would for families....More
Another great Christmas break
We stayed at Flamingo Beach over Christmas 2013 and had such a good time we decided to visit again arriving Christmas Eve 2015. We stayed in a superior room (bungalow 32) which we loved as it was very close to the beach and quiet because it was on the edge of the resort (but literally a 5 min walk to the main pool, restaurant). The rooms had been refurbished between our two visits and we really liked the improvements, the bathrooms were so much better, large showers and good water pressure although we did find that if you all had showers after each other the 3rd or 4th person got a cold shower so try and stagger them if you can. Beds were comfortable although slightly lacking in covers at night when the temperature dipped, a sheet just doesn't keep you warm enough and there weren't enough duvets in the wardrobes for everyone to have one. I imagine they aren't used for most of the year because it's so hot and actually if we have remembered to ask for some extra duvets i'm sure they would have brought us some! Wi-fi was useful but patchy, our room did not get a good signal but around the pool area and in reception was good. Suspect some of the rooms closer to these areas probably had a better signal. My children were 7 and 6 (birthday during our visit) and there was just the right amount of things going on for them. The entertainment team were lovely and were happy to chat with all of the children. I liaised with Victor at the hotel prior to our visit to arrange a birthday cake for my daughter, he was so attentive and all the arrangements went to plan - my daughter was delighted as she got a huge chocolate with candles and balloons decorating our table at Tavern by the Sea. Victor checked in with us several times during the holiday to ensure we were happy - great customer service. My children visited the kids club a couple of times and enjoyed their time there. We didn't try any of the evening kids club activities as they preferred to watch the entertainment in the Blue Moon bar. I know a lot of people were unhappy that the entertainment finished about 9.30pm but with young children it wasn't much of an issue for us and saved having noisy people going past your room at midnight as it all got very quiet around 10-11pm. The shows by the in house team were excellent and we all enjoyed them - especially enjoyed the '80's music one which we watched twice as we were there 10 days. The local acts that covered the two nights the entertainment team were off were a bit hit and miss, an awesome African acrobat show one night and a slightly odd dance troop another. The walk into Playa Blanca was short and easy - nice even pathway and a lovely seaview during the walk. Good mixture of shops with some really nice quality goods. Got some really good price perfume and Pandora charms. The weather was lovely for our entire trip so we made good use of the beach and pools. The water is not heated in most of the pools (the main pool is slightly heated to take the edge off but definitely not warm) and is a bit of a shock to the system. Didn't seem to bother the children though! Enjoyed walking up the volcano behind the hotel although it was super windy at the top, the view was amazing. Overall another really enjoyable holiday, we'd certainly consider visiting at Christmas again in a couple of years. I noticed it started to get much busier as we were leaving so suspect January gets quite busy but Christmas was very pleasant, busy but not too crowded.More
Superb hotel and location
Booked as a last minute break we both needed and also was my OH's birthday. Flew via Thomson which was okay for 4 + hours but a bit boring , On arrival at Hotel we found our request for a top floor( only 2 storeys high) with a sea view and quiet area had been granted which was a fantastic start ( Thanks to Victor !) and having been directed to the room it was brilliant , all rooms and site looks newly refurbished and was spotless throughout (gardens, pool areas, restaurants etc etc ). Maid service was good--- not quite daily but enough to cover most days Bath towels etc renewed each visit , English programmes on TV (Sky News and ITV/BBC ) when you needed to catch up, Beds we had were 2 singles together bit sufficed as a double ok, in lounge 2 huge sofas together would accommodate 2 more Adults or kids with ease, Big Walk in rain shower and Bathroom and plenty of storage space , Kitchen area if you go S/Catering too . Lovely sized balcony to view sunsets from in evenings. We went All inclusive and food standard was great and varied with superb choices and kids foods in their own area to choose from if they wanted , service in restaurants was always friendly and courteous and with a smile too. There are various eating areas on site , and two (minimum )are always open for Breakfast/ lunch and evening meals offering buffet style service but also cooking stations for meats/ fish selections along with other hot and cold meals giving plenty of choice for all tastes. Currently you can also book 2 visits for that extra special evening meal included at the Green Grill and also the Tavern by the sea which we used and found to be superb too . On the night of my wife's birthday they gave her a bottle of champagne and we had wine, about 8/9 hot and cold Tapas and then lovely steak and side dishes followed by a selection of desserts that we were so full we could not finish--a lovely evening and all waiter service. The Beach/ bay is sheltered and acts as a lovely Suntrap and safe for kids and as the pictures show the Hotel although large and occupying the bay area it does not feel crowded in the hotel areas at all , 3 pool areas kids pools inc babies area and one big kids / family pool , a "swimmers pool for those that just like to do uninterrupted lengths and finally the Quiet pool for those who want to just relax away from the kids pools. Drinks are varied with a good selection and the All Inc red wine was lovely as was the local Tropical branded Beer Plenty of Soft drinks / sangria / cocktails too . Night time entertainment was good and great for kids but watchable for Adults too with the team putting on their own shows and also visiting acts too. Winter time seems to be more Nordic guests and Brits the smaller majority but nice atmosphere and no " towels at Dawn" raids needed ! Apparently in the summer the hotel then becomes mainly Brits as the majority as it becomes a mainly First Choice TU group hotel . Nice walk to Playa Blanca along the Promenade (20mins and then a further 20 min walk to the Marina beyond that but well worth a walk in the evening and also the day time ( sat and Weds markets ) for the views along the walk and the marina area. Bus about 150m from hotel is E1.40 one way Pperson to the marina if you do not want to walk there and back and run about every 30mins. Wifi was good across most of the site and included ( upto 5 devices occasionally slowed down but was good overall ( even got it on the beach one day !) You can hire large beach towels for 10E( refundable) per stay and these can be changed 2 times a week Mon/Fri 10-12 noon). Safe deposit box in room is 15E per week non refundable but obviously worth it for your valuables/ passports etc , Our In house First Choice Rep Louise was excellent and was there to answer any queries or just have a chat with and she arranged for the surprise on my wifes birthday , Louise showed genuine care for her Guests which had surpassed any previous reps we had encountered on prev hols , another great Plus to this resort. We did not do any trips but again plenty of choice if that "floats your boat" etc . Overall it was a superb place to stay and we thoroughly enjoyed it and have to say the team at the Flamingo Beach Hotel are doing a great job to ensure their guests leave wanting to come back again.More
Clean, good location and easy with children
We spent a week in Flamingo Beach Resort in January with two small children. Hotel's location very close to the beach enables easy visits to the beach. Hotel has several pools but only a few of them is heated in the winter. Childrens' pool is not heated so it nobody used that pool. But there is another pool for small childrens which is heated. Almost impossible to get an umbrella / chair by the pool unless you reserve it early in the morning. Of course the signs say it is not allowed, but obviously the signes are ignored. We only ate breakfast at the hotel. Good variaty of fresh vegetables and fruits and includes even Cava! The playground for children is quite small (and does not have anything for the smallest kids) and directly in the sun almost all day long. The staff at the reception was not that helpful. I asked for information on several issues (tourist info concerning the island) and I did always get a some kind of an answer but I would have liked more info. We had an apartment with garden. Very nice and clean. It was cleaned several times during our week. Internet connection did not work that well.More
Good but can be faulted.
Perhaps we are picky but having visited many resorts over a large number of years we believe we can measure the pulse of a place. Travelled with Thomson on 14th Jan for 1 week. Easy registration as there were only a few others at the time of arrival. The apartments were all large and well-equipped as well as being pretty clean and the air con was good. Entertainment was pretty dire for adults and finished about 2130hrs. The food whilst of good variety and plentiful was usually cool and the plates often cold. The beach was amazing, very clean and safe. Most apartments had a view of the sea and all areas seemed to be wheelchair accessible except of course the upstairs apartments. Check carefully if you have mobility difficulties. Indoor pool seemed unused because the weather was so good. The other pools were also very good and the children's pool was always packed and quite noisy but that didn't matter as the other areas were quiet. Plenty of access to bars and no problem with rowdiness probably because most guests seemed to be foreign.q Laundry change was the day before we left and seemed unnecessary whilst on 2 days we did not have any maid service at all. After arrival we found that the hotel is being sold as First Choice without the website making clear mention. The hotel also sells as room only, bed and breakfast as well as full board, half board and fully inclusive. Tavern on the Beach as a single bookable free option on AI was absolutely brilliant and put all other meals to shame. The hotel is an easy journey by bus or taxi to Playa Blanca town or minimum 15 minute walk to the port or another mile and a half through the town to the marina . Overall it was not bad as a holiday but had the weather not been brilliant it could have been a lot worse.More
