This All Inclusive property fires on all cylinders. For starters, it offers up three big swimming pools. There’s an activity pool, a quiet pool and a separate one for children. They’re all bordered by roomy sun terraces, dotted with loungers and parasols. Plus, you’ll find a poolside bar-come-café out here. The whole scene is framed by landscaped gardens.
On the food and drink front, the emphasis is on big, global buffets served up in the main restaurant. There’s an Italian restaurant, too, and, if you fancy eating out, meanwhile, it’s around a 15-minute walk to the heart of Playa Blanca. Even closer is the pretty local harbour. It’s about five minutes away on foot, and a great spot for fresh seafood.
Back at the hotel, spacious suites are kitted out in soft pastel tones. Well-equipped kitchenettes complete with microwaves, fridges and kettles come as standard, as do private balconies or terraces. TVs and air-conditioning provide the in-room extras. Plus, if you opt to stay in a select room, you’ll get a DVD player and access to the movie library in reception.
Lastly, when it comes to entertainment, this place really comes into its own with a great mix of events on offer from noon ‘til nightfall.

Super place for winter sun
Went with my wife, without kids, having chosen this hotel as a result of trip advisor reviews. When we arrived at reception we were surprised at how basic it seemed compared to other hotels and wondered if we had made a mistake. We are both pleased to say that we hadn't, having thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and a week in the sun. Our room was spacious and clean, with a large balcony which comfortably accommodated two sun beds and which enjoyed all-day sun. All rooms seemed to have ocean views across to Fuertaventura. Food was buffet but good and varied. All-inclusive was good. There are good facilities for children, and adults only areas. The hotel is a very pleasant fifteen minutes stroll to the resort centre. We would certainly use this hotel again should we return to Lanzarote.More

Average family holiday
We visited The Flamingo Beach Resort for a family holiday in June, The accommodation is basic and desperately in need of some attention, it became extremely noisy on a night and often couldn't get to sleep before 1pm with the children, However There was a wide variety of food options which We thoroughly enjoyed and the children's entertainers were excellent.More

Just returned from a ten day stay at this hotel. Would agree with some other reviewers who expressed concern re standards of hygiene around food areas and general practice regarding recycling of leftover food from previous buffet offerings. Both my husband and I experienced "iffy stomachs" a couple of times while we were there but on arriving home my husband had a very upset stomach. We had noticed there were food inspectors in the Green and Grill restaurant one day who appeared to be making notes and talking to the catering staff. We hadn't realised just how many people had recently been ill before we went there. On one occasion we were horrified to observe the staff member at the main pool bar clear up the mess on the floor at the entrance to the restaurant, where a child had unfortunately just been sick. The staff member cleared it up with her bare hands and then - without even pausing to wash her hands - picked up a pile of used plates and cutlery and carried them through the restaurant and into the kitchen. Very worrying hygiene knowledge/training/practice! And that was only a day or two after the food inspectors had appeared! Generally, other aspects of this hotel were not really to our taste. Simply can't understand why it was given four stars - it was more like a two. Some of the waiters were very nice and hospitable, the barman in the very depressing Atlantic Bar was great but the male manager in reception seemed curt and indifferent when approached with a query. Some of the food was truly awful, in our opinion, and the noise and crush of people in the "canteen" at breakfast time was so bad we stopped going in at all and bought and made our own breakfasts in our room. There were far too many people in a confined space, all trying to grab enough food to eat. Very uncivilised!! Needless to say, we will definitely NOT return to this hotel. Thomson - please take reviews expressing concern re hygiene more seriously. The location is good and the views of the sea were great. We think we may have had a refurbished room as ours was okay and fairly well equipped. The main problems were issues re food/hygiene and the fact that it was constantly overcrowded with hardly anywhere to sit in peace and quiet. The only area for adults only was on a very dirty roof terrace and even that was taken over at 4.30pm every day by keep fit staff who launched into a session with VERY LOUD music, without even acknowledging that we were already there, reading or just sunbathing in the only quiet space in the whole complex. They didn't even have the manners or courtesy to say "sorry to disturb you but we have a class now". Just deafening music to drive us away. RUDE!More

sadly worse holiday we have experienced as a family, when we arrived we werent shown to our room we were given a map and had to walk around the wet pool area with our cases in between the sunbeds etc, our apartment was dreadful it looked tired and had paint peeling off of lots of areas very shabby and unkept it was very basic. It was impossible to get a sunbed on any occasion during our stay except for one morning when my husband got up at the crack of dawn to leave towels on sunbeds. the food was incredibly basic and repetitive, and on a few occasions not thoroughly cooked. the restaurant was often very busy and untidy we would often find a table that had not been cleared or cleaned and would have to clear it ourselves. very disappointed by our holiday sadly and would not recommend it. only good thing was you could have some lovely walks to playa blanca town with good seleciton of shops and restaurants, where we often visited and had lunch, even though we were all inclusive but we would often avoid the hotel at meal times just to escape somewhere else for more interesting food. due to this experience it has put us off as a family of visiting other first choice holiday villages in the futureMore
We have travelled a lot and this was our first holiday with our 6 month old son, so much for a family holiday. Firstly upon arrival to the hotel the reception manager decided it was better to see to other reception duties instead of seeing to the new waiting guests waiting to check in. The accommodation is very basic far from a 4 star really a 2 star, not enough hot water for two off us to shower we were told to wait 15 minutes between showers !!!!! This is supposed to be a village accommodation and they can't accommodate hot water for guests. As our son didn't like the heat too much we asked if we could have two sunbeds to sit on the patio whilst he slept instead in the cool and we were told no!!!! Nobody in lanzarote would allow this -except they do!!! The sunbeds in the quite area were filthy anyway nobody used them, only be the busy pool are they nice. As for the general manager he needs some people skills, he would walk about the place with a long face and not speak or crack a smile to his guests. The food was nice but gosh the guests are like they are eating their last meal and have no consideration for anyone else, and it is far from a restaurant , they are CANTEENS. Avoid this place unless you like Butlins, and if your a couple without children look at the timifaya place it looks amazing and don't go to the flamingo.More
