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.

We visited the resort from 11 – 18 March 2013. I have never seen so many kids under the age of 10 in one place! We had two of our own – 3 years and 18 months – so it didn’t bother us one bit. I would not recommend the resort to couples without kids or older people. We had a look at the H10 next door and there was only people over the age of 60 so would’ve hated it to be there with our two boisterous boys. We thought the resort was great especially for the kids. Our one bedroom was at the quiet end of the resort but close a pool, baby pool, one of the pool bars and the side gate to the beach. The beach was awesome. Clean sand, shallow water. To be honest I don’t know what some people on here are complaining about. I had my reservations as I read all the horrible comments after we booked our holiday (there wasn’t so many before I booked it hence why I ended up booking it!). There was a lot of Scandinavian people but that didn’t bother us (we’re not British) and they all seemed friendly and well behaved. Our room was clean and well equipped even though we did the all-inclusive option. I agree the rooms are maybe in need of an update but again, with kids you don’t need to be precious about stuff getting dirty/broken in the room. The food in the restaurant was nice and there was a wide choice. I can see why some people think it’s more like a ‘canteen’ but trust me, when you have two little messy kids you don’t mind. Not like we were expecting a candle lit dinner every night. We also found the staff very helpful and friendly. It was also a great help that there was a doctor on site as our youngest got ill during our stay. But the best part is that my husband left his tablet behind and we originally thought that he lost it on the plane. The cleaner found the tablet after we were gone and they contacted us to tell us they found it! How good to know that not only are you and your children safe but also your belongings!More
We were three generations that travelled together and it was perfect for it! All of us fm 4 to 70 years old had what we wanted. We had all Inclusive if which we had nothing to complain about. Good fresh food, clean surroundings, lovely staff. Pools were plenty and spa nice. The massagetherapeutist at spa was the best we d ever tried, real massage. Only disappointment was the gym - the equipment wasn t working and opening hours could be longer. Also wifi hardly worked.More

A very good hotel
We went 17th March for a week AI. Room was overlooking the beach it was spacious and clean. All the staff and reps were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent caviar and champagne at breakfast, all the meat and fish was freshly cooked to order. The entertainment at night was the usual standard for AI. In fact we had nothing to complain about.More

Good but busy
We had a lovely week here. We travel extensively and felt that the accommodation and facilities provided were good. The little kitchen area was well equipped, the apartment was extremely secure and safe for our 21 month old toddler and the food in the restaurant was plentiful, well cooked and extremely varied. In fact, there was definitely something for everyone. The downsides for us were the children's pools. The majority of people there had toddlers but the toddler pool was tiny and definitely not warm enough to stay in for long. The children's pool was inviting with its slides but freezing so again,not appropriate for small children. We love playa Blanca and have been to the resort before. We would stay at this hotel again but not in school holidays. The hotel became noticeably busier and noisier towards the end of the week when the schools broke up. The other thing we felt could be improved was the outside bit for the evening entertainment. We prefer to sit quietly so our little girl can be asleep while we get some much needed time together but the bar as too noisy inside and outside was great for enjoying the entertainment but the noise from the football tv and the air hockey games spoilt what could hVe been a nice atmosphere.

Good relaxing holiday
Stayed at the Flamingo Beach Resort in late March, after reading some of the trip advisor reviews prior to arriving at holiday resort we thought we would need to purchase meals at different venues, even though we booked as all inclusive. I think the people writing the reviews must have stayed in a different place, the food was excellent different choices for breakfast, lunch & dinner the hotel had one of the best selection of fresh fruit I have ever had in a hotel which includes some 5 star. The hotel was clean and staff friendly and helpful. The accommodation was not luxurious but as it was an apartment rather than just a bedroom it did give you more space. The only real downside in the apartment was the bathroom needs up dating the shower was powerful but over a bath with a shower curtain. We had a lovey view from our apartment, and playa Blanca is a lovely area good walks along the promenade.More
