This place has a trio of outdoor pools and lots of choice when it comes to restaurants. It’s also really close to the beach.
Here you get a total of four pools to choose between. And there’s an even bigger choice of restaurants – you’ve got five, including two buffets, a grill and a Mediterranean-style tapas place down on the beach.
It’s a 2-minute walk to the beach, and about a 5-minute stroll to the harbour, which dishes up great local seafood. And central Playa Blanca is about 15 minutes from the apartments.
These 1-bedroom apartments include a terrace for that extra room outdoors. Your apartment will come with a twin bedroom and lounge with 2 sofa-beds. You'll also find a TV and a kitchenette complete with a microwave and kettle. Just so you know you'll be able to request air-conditioning* and Wi-Fi* in resort.
Your superior 1-bedroom apartment will include a balcony and a limited sea view. These apartments come with upgraded furnishings, TV, DVD player, bathrobes, slippers and 1 spa visit per adult per stay. There's a twin bedroom and lounge with 2 sofa-beds - plus you'll also find a kitchenette complete with a microwave and kettle. Just so you know you can request air-conditioning* and Wi-Fi* in resort.

I don't have a bad word to say about thus place. All staff are brilliant and clearly work hard to make sure everything is as it should be. Food was delicious with plenty of variety. Rooms were in lovely condition and cleaned every few days. Entertainment staff worked hard day and night. In a lovely location with plenty to do nearby. Well worth a return visit More

Lovely complex of several privately owned villas set just back from sea front next to old harbour.
Shared pool which is rarely in use, always quiet as people have their own private sun terraces. Landscaped.always clean.
Beach-flamingo-is about 5 minutes walk, and is sheltered, perfect for swimming and children. Sun beds for hire.backed by attractive low key restaurants and shops.two other beaches 10 ish minutes away, one tiny but fun, other commercialised with boats etc.
The town in also 5 minutes in other direction with many nice shops and brilliant selection of restaurants, both on sea front and set back (cheaper!)...Canarian food is very good- do try canarian potatoes with mojo sauce, all fish of day(other type frozen, though still good)and the tapas. Rabbit is well cooked here in traditional sauces.
Vegatarians will struggle but starters can be requested as mains. Vegans..They do not get it in most places. That is where self catering g is so great! Supermarkets very good here, all in walking distance.
Local wines-whites better than reds.thought rose very good.
We love lanzarotte. Do go and visit papagayo- you can take the glass bottomed boat for â¬15 or drive â¬3.it's a national park and can be seen from these villas as you sit sipping sangria on the sun patio!
YOU MUST go to see at least one cesar manrique installation...look him up. All so interesting and inspiring. I think his contributions to this island make it stand out for me.
Of course, there are the volcanoes! Timanfaya is also a national park, and the experience is not to be missed.
If you drive you will join a bus tour as the area is protected. Or you can join up with hotel guests and enjoy an arranged tour-they are very good and often combine couple places of interest and a local lunch. Good fun .
Playa blanca is overlooked by Montana rojo- you can easily walk up this old volcano from playa blanca.it has an impressive crater and wonderful views.
The promenade is great for an evening walk to the lighthouse, or for joggers.
Give playa blanca a go.More

I stayed at the Flamingo beach resort last week and I had an amazing time! The staff was so friendly and kind and made sure everyone was "Pura Vida" the activities/fun guy Greddy was beyond fantastic, he made sure people always had something to do, from Zumba by pool, to a Spanish lesson, there was something for everyone. I got the chance to do Zumba with him and he was so nice! The world needs more people like him, he keeps that place so lively and happy. The pool facility was good, however if you have a smaller child they have a choice between a small wading pool and a 4'7 deep pool, it's a little hard for them to do anything in the pool because of that. The beach is beautiful and it's easy to spend a day there. The restraints were fantastic, they greeted you with a smile everytime and always made sure you had everything you wanted. Overall, I had a great experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone with a family :)
P.S: if Greddy ever sees this, thank you for everything you did, I really enjoyed dancing beside you for Zumba, you also give great hugs, you made my visit 100 times better
Third time we have stayed here in 6 years and never been disappointed. Rooms are large and light and unusually have a dining and kitchen area with fridge and cooking facilities. Great location only ten mins walk along the coastal path to the town which hasn't changed much in the 20 years we have been coming. Food and restaurants are great- usual English things plus a huge rage of Spanish dishes, cooked to order meats, beautiful salads and healthy choices. Great choice of pools and never struggled for us beds. Two sunbeds with a parasol for the whole day on the lovely beach is 12 euros and there are 2 reasonably priced supermarkets and beach bar at the bottom of the hotel. My girls have loved the kids club with Gemma and Mike- free daytime sessions and fun extra evening sessions which we paid for. I work in a preschool in the UK and was very happy with the kids club- from the sign in/out sheets to the chain on the door and fact we were welcome to check on the children whenever we wanted. I cannot understand why anyone would not be happy with this hotel- if you want an extreme luxury experience with fine dining and every facility you can imagine you need to realise you will need to pay substantially more than you pay here!More

Wonderful relaxing holiday even with a toddler in tow!
Very nice resort with plenty going on, a nice selection of different swimming pools (some quieter than others) my only negative is as many others have said water temp is too cold especially for young children but on the plus side the resort does have a heated indoor pool!
We asked to move rooms after the first night as we were originally placed above the Blue Note entertainment bar (nb. We had paid for a superior apartment)
We didn't need to make a huge fuss or anything like that - The matter was dealt with swiftly in a friendly manner and we were moved into a lovely spacious seafront bungalow the next day - we were delighted! Hit the jackpot.
Our daughter age 3 hasn't been old enough to take part in Kids Club before and we were dubious about whether she'd take to the idea plus whether we'd trust the staff. Fortunately due to the high quality, friendly and welcoming staff - It wasn't a problem at all and she enjoyed going most days. A special THANKS & shout out to Magic Mike & Gwhizz (Gemma!) for all their hard work and effort. Our little girl had so much fun and loved them both but especially Mike, who has a gentle & fun manner. Staff on a par with nursery staff standard back home, felt very comfortable leaving little one with them.
The resort was winding down during the last few days of our stay so entertainment was vastly reduced, bars closing etc which we weren't made aware of when booking the holiday or whilst we were at the resort until it happened - was a bit of a shame as our favourite pool bar was closed so we had to walk a fair way to get drinks/ice cream.
Nonetheless - Would definitely return to the hotel again. Met some really nice families with great kids at this resort.
Tip - do not buy buckets, spades, toys, inflatables as they are thrown away/discarded every single day by guests who leave. Just walk past a few bungalows when the cleaners are out in force and you will find lots of superb free plastic tat which your kids will love. I feared slightly for the landfills - lets recycle people :)
Our best family holiday to date!More
