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.

Stress free excellent family holiday
Just returned from a week at the flamingo beach hotel. I cannot find one fault with this hotel or the resort. Beach: absolutely beautiful, fantastic for children but my only criticism is no shade or parasols so my tip would be to buy a parasol or beach tent if you intend to go on the beach with small children. Hotel: something for everyone with the food. Really catered for fussy children. Immaculate rooms which were very clean. Everything you could wish for if you have children. Entertainment, kids clubs, nice pools that suited all ages. We loved the Mickey Mouse pool which was great for our 3 years old. Resort: very nice and plenty to see. All in all an absolutely fantastic holiday, if you are looking for somewhere nice, safe, clean and stress free to take the kids then this is the one for you. Well done First Choice. ðMore

Perfect family holiday
I've been on 5 family all inclusive holidays and to date thus far exceeds the rest! The hotel is in a perfect location!!! Right on the beautiful Flamingo Beach with crystal clear waters with wind breakers in the sea so the sea is calm enough for adults and young children alike to enter! Then the hotel itself where do I begin? The first choice team work tirelessly to ensure you have the best family holiday - I was set against using a kids club however I was convinced into using it and it was fantastic! My 3 year old loved the staff, loved the activities and the staff were very enthusiastic! There were games and entertainment around the main pool all day every day! We were never short of things to do! The staff were a credit to first choice! The restaurants were plentiful - one main buffet style restaurant then there was a grill restaurant, a tapas, a Mexican and an Italian which were all fantastic! Food high quality, tables cleared quickly, staff very friendly and we were spoilt for choice! The tapas and Italian were a la carte which added to the experience. Then the rooms, very spacious, seperate living are and bedroom area! The 1 bed apartments means someone sleeping on the couch which was fine as we used the sofa and our little boy slept in the bedroom. The main doors open from the inside without using a lock but this is Spanish law and will happen in any Spanish hotel! Cleaning staff and maintenence staff all very friendly and efficient - the resort was spotlessly clean! I cannot fault this hotel, my little boy did not want to come home and neither did we! I highly recommend it and it was our best family holiday to date!More
Best All Inclusive to date so far.
I write this review on our last night here, with one day to go plus fly back home tomorrow 6pm. I thought it would be as apt as any time to write this while I stare at the stars on the balcony terrace! This is by far the best hotel/resort we've been to as a family with our 4 year old son, we've been on 3 all inclusives in total. We were meant to come here last year but we're moved to Rubicon Palace due to renovation works. So we decided to book again for this year once the renovation works were complete and we're made up we did. We were given a sea view apartment after emailing the kind Manager of the resort. The first thing to mention is the staff. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, from check in to the entertainment staff for the kids (my son loved them, to the point he had to go to the kids club.... a lot), the chefs/waiters and of course the cleaning staff. The cleaning staff are a credit to this resort and I hope the managerial staff realise this, because they thoroughly cleaned our room while we were out every time and it was spotless. They even got rid of every inch of sand after a day at the beach so I thank them for that. The food is fantastic, I couldn't get enough of everything on offer, going back for seconds and even going back 15mins before it closes to take some back to the room at night! Loved it. Alcohol on tap, over generous portions of whisky by the barman was always a bonus. The resort acts like a holiday village, absolutely perfect for kids with the main big pool and a splash pool with 3 slides plus a giant bucket of water that fills over time and pours all over them causing surprise without fail! Kids laughin their heads off constantly. One thing I noticed about the negative reviews for this hotel is that they complained about the amount of kids here? You don't book this place if youre a childless couple it's as simple as that. You can relax, sure, but the pool will be ransacked with kids coz its a family resort aimed at kids! Anyway, moving on to the location. You've got Playa Blanca a few mins walk away, you've got the beach a few mins down the steps with a row of shops for all your needs plus a few restaurants if you want away from the all inclusive for some reason. I took a walk down the right hand side path all the way to the Lighthouse too. Pleasant walk if you're fit enough, took an hour to walk there and an hour back. I digress! Overall I, my wife and 4 year old son thoroughly enjoyed every day of this holiday and I would highly recommend anyone to go. We will certainly be coming again in the future.More
Great family holiday
We had a fab 11 day holiday. The resort was lovely a great mixture of all inclusive but with some close by places you could go for a beer & a chill. The evening entertainment was ok, the children liked it. Lovely views, the kids club was great & made a special fuss of my little boy when it was his birthday. The food was good quality for all inclusive. Lots of little pools with plenty of sun beds. We had a lovely break, my only gripe is that the beds in the apartments were truly terrible. I don want to go on holiday and sleep with my husband on a two 2 foot single beds, made up separable and pushed together. Hotel staff were nice and always had a smile for the kids. I would say this is a family resort.More

Four Star Resort!
Just returned from being at Flamingo Beach for 10 days. Room was lovely, clean and light and there was a complimentary bottle of water and a couple of chocs on the table. The kitchen was well equipped (although we only used the fridge) more so than some self-catering apartments we have been to in the past! The food is possibly the best we have ever had on an all-inclusive basis!! The choice was immense and can't praise them high enough. Without exception the staff were all friendly and so, so polite. The resort is really close to the beach and it was altogether a really lovely relaxing experience being there. Only two negative things come to mind - 1) when sitting at the dressing table the mirror is too high on the wall to see in it (definitely put up by a man!!) and 2) when we first got there the official summer season hadn't started so there was no entertainment and other facilities were not open to us. I do not however blame Flamingo Beach management for this - it is Thomas Cook/First Choice that should have made this obvious in their brochure. Would we go again - definitely!!! Am waiting for the Winter Sun brochure to come out!More
