This place has a pair of pools and lots of choice when it comes to restaurants. It’s also really close to the beach.
Here you get 2 pools to choose between. And there’s an even bigger choice of restaurants – you’ve got 5, including 2 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 a 15-minute walk from the apartments.

An alternative take on Flamingo Beach Resort
We don't have kids, don't do 'all inclusive' and much prefer 'adult environments'. I doubt that we would ever book with a tour company to a place like Lanzarote as it's so easy to organise it all yourself these days. So when I researched the Canary Islands for a Winter Sun break that wasn't 'England with the heat turned up', I decided that Playa Blanca was a good choice. Within Playa Blanca, the area around Flamingo Beach Resort seemed to be a good choice as the beach was on the doorstep and it was a short walk (15 mins) into town. I found a self catering unit within the 'Private Owners' section of the resort to rent and despite the reviews on TA about it being a kiddie centric resort, we decided to book anyway. For a couple, this was definitely the way to go, we did indeed have the beach on the doorstep and we could use the facilities in the resort. We also had a hire car to explore the Island which is well worth doing. The beach at Playa Flamingo is lovely and the calm waters were swimmable in November. There was a bigger beach at Playa Dorada about a 25 minute walk away, just through town. Compared with Puerto Del Carmen and Costa Teguise, Playa Blanca was a low key resort, with plenty of bars and restaurants but was a lot less 'spoilt' then the other two resorts mentioned. There is a market at Marina Rubicon on Wednesday and Saturday mornings where most of the tourists on the Isalnd seem to descent to on mass. Women will find a lot more for them at the market than us men! We drive around the Island in our hire car, I'd recommend an early start to Timanfaya to beat the coach tour crowds (get there before 10 AM). A trip to various 'Manrique' inspired attractions in the North of the island is highly recommended too. The best restaurant that we ate in was Romantica, food was excellent but we did spend more money there than any other evening. We found some good restaurants in the town of El Golfo and would recommend the 'Cherne' fish. Self catering was easy, there were two supermarkets close by on the promenade and several others in town including a large 'Hyperdino'. Overall, I'd recommend Playa Blanca for a chilled out winter sun holiday. Self catering was a good option for adults, I would only recommend the resort if you have kids. But I'm not the 'target market' so I'm not going to knock it!More

Lovely Place for children
Our second visit to this hotel and have nothing but praise for the staff they really do go out of the way to please. The food is good quality and always fresh, of course it is busy as a family resort so children everywhere. But people must know this when they book, I just spent a wonderful week with my daughter and 2yr old granddaughter. I emailed in advance to get a room by the reception and they responded immediately and found the room of my choice. The only downside is the games room is very dated and dirty, and also there should be more facilities for under 5yr olds perhaps a soft play area or just a playroom that can be used all day especially if weather bad. Also the evening entertainment is very poor this time of year, it might be better when run by Thomson. Overall a great place to be, with everything on hand and the lovely beach close by, and an easy stroll along to shops and Playa Blanca harbour. So a thumbs up from usMore

had a great time!
My mum & I chose this resort for a cheeky girls week away at the start of December. The resort is about a 40 minute drive from the airport and is in a great location. Its a 5 minute walk along to the small town where you will find lots of places to eat, bars & shops. The beach was a 60second walk from our room. Our apartment was fantastic, it was spacious, clean & comfortable (mum found the beds slightly too hard but I thought it was perfect). Great wee balcony that looked out over the sea & the swimming pools, excellent power shower & everything you would need to self cater. It was quiet at night even when we left the window open. The apartments were only 2 storeys high which was perfect, the whole place was well looked after with lots of nice plants & it was always clean & tidy. Because of the time of year we visited the resort was not too busy, there were plenty sun loungers (with no towels on them from 5AM!! :P) and we always found a seat for dinner. With the food, there was always loads of choice and it was pretty good. There was plenty of staff and all of them were very friendly & helpful. I would stay here again!More

Good family holiday
We travelled here as a family, my partner and I, our toddler and my parents. There was something for everyone, obviously we chose this hotel as it is good for children, being a holiday village. The main pool was far to busy and loud and at 9am (when the sun loungers became available) it was mayhem and I mean Mayhem! There were people waiting everywhere and had already put there bags/inflatables etc on the ground where they wanted their lounger to go! That was the only time we stayed around that pool. There are quieter ones dotted around that were much more relaxed. The hotel is right on the beach, the beach is lovely but you have to lye on your towels as no loungers there. The food was good, with lots of choice and different restaurants. We chose to eat out in Playa Blanca every night though as we tend to get bored. Playa Blanca is a nice 20min walk down to the beach to the harbour with lots of choice of bars/restaurants. We never really saw the evening entertainment as we went out but it looked as though the entertainment team never stop working and try to get everybody to join in. The apartments are gorgeous and very comfortable! We only stayed for a week unfortunately, we would go back, enjoyed by all!More

.just returned after my sixth time of visiting. A fantastic place and the food is of an excellent standard. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. The restaurant downstairs is geared up towards children however upstairs there is a restaurant for adults without children. There is a lovely 15 minute walk into Playa Blanca with views over to Fuertaventura. Looking forward to my return visit in 2015.More
