Flamingo Beach Resort  

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.

Relaxing holiday

What a fantastic holiday for families of young children.we arrived at 11am and we were given our room straight away. Which was fantastic and our room was beautiful. We over looked beach from balcony then lively pool from bedroom. It was perfect location because if u needed toilet of anything your room Was there D5 if anyone wants to request it. Pools were lovely but have to say they were to cold.didn't help the area is very very windy. The restaurants r fantastic. We loved the Mexican one but even the buffet ones were fantastic. We didn't use kids clubs because my children didn't want to go but that was fine with us. My daughter had swimming lessons out there and the instructor Rob was amazing. He had do much patients and he had given my very shy 6 year old so much confidence. It was fab because kids were in school she basically had 1 to 1. Entertainment was basically haven style but abroad. Suited the kids They loved it. Especially the widgets. There is a quiter bar to for those who didn't want entertainment. We I would recommend hotel to anyone.I wouldn't go back because it's very very windy and not fussed on playa blanca it's self.which has nothing to do with hotel. But def go back to another holiday village. Looking now for next year.More

7 nights family with young children

Just returned home from a week in the resort with my parter and 2 kids ages 6 and 11 months. I can't find a single thing to complain about. The resort was clean modern and beautiful. The staff are friendly and reps were fab! My daughter enjoyed the kids club and they always had fun things for them to do. My son went in the cresh and it was worth the money as it gave him a break from the sun and other babies to play with. The food was really good too as they had something different everyday and never ran out of anything. We went a week prior to the half term and although it was quiet there was plent on and we enjoyed ever minute. On the Saturday the half term families came and it got quite busy at meal times but that is to be expected. We would definitely go again.More

Hayleyjay01,

great hotel shame about the airports!

We have just returned from a week with our four year old, 5 month old and parents. We did warn my parents it was a family resort but I don't think they were prepared for the butlins style entertainment by the main pool, noise in the main buffet and evening entertainment!! First I must say the apartment was fantastic we had a three bed apartment in a quiet location which had two bathrooms and great air con which was very much needed as we experienced a heat wave which was tricky with two kids! The grounds are beautiful kept, the beach is gorgeous (although no sun loungers or umbrella s) having stayed at Egypt's HV last year where we had fresh beach towels everyday we were disappointed we had to pay a deposit to hire towels and only got changed twice a week! It took a while to find out the best places to go away from the madding crowd as little information about being able to have lunch in the other restaurants which we highly recommend. Disappointed also that I wanted to book a baby pack from first choice when I booked the holiday but was told they didn't have any so had to take loads of stuff with us! Also we had pre booked,checked in,printed everything off prior to our departure yet had to stand in a que for over an hour and a half at Gatwick whilst feeding my baby!total nightmare, was so stressed we just had time to go to the toilet, grab a sandwich and get to the plane. Not how we planned the start if our holiday and was pretty much the same on the return journey, no staff offered assistance once. Also I second the previous comment about arriving late and having no help to get to your apartment, it was dark and difficult to find.in Egypt they took our bags to the room and showed us to it, also we got spoilt there with staff serving drinks and bar on the beach which this resort had neither. The food was excellent and staff lovely we coukdnt faukt them, we had my mums birthday on the last day, she was very spoilt with wine and nite in the from and bubbly with every meal that day and even got a birthday cake and song from all the waiters, lovely touch.thank you. Also had massage it was great :-)More

Fantastic Family Holiday

We have just returned from a fantastic week long family holiday in the sun at the flamingo beach resort. It is the ideal place for families with young children to holiday. The location is fantastic being right on the beach, with the sea being nice and calm thanks to the rock wave breakers. We found all areas of the resort itself was spotlessly clean and tidy. All staff at the hotel deserve full credit, from the bar and restaurant staff through to the cleaning and general maintenance staff. The work tirelessly but discreetly and probably do not get the credit they deserve. Even the lifeguards are seen constantly sweeping up any puddles that form around the pools in order to avoid slip hazards. The main pool area is very lively with music all day, quizzes and other competitions. This is fun and popular with the older children, and the first choice reps do a great job with the entertainment. However with a 3 year old this isn't really our cup of tea so we retreated to the smaller pool near just past the mickey mouse baby pool. This was still busy but much more quieter and relaxing than the main pool area, all with the added bonus of the outside walk-up pool bar just up the steps. Four of the restaurants were superb of an evening, and with not surprise these are the four that you are given one reservation to each during your stay (Tavern by the Sea, Green & Grill, Tex Mex & Italian) The Italian and the Tavern by the Sea were the best of the bunch, but this is to be expected given that they are the a la carte restaurants. The green & grill is fantastic both day during the day and at night. Its a buffet but the food is superb and there is plenty of choice with great sea views. The Tex Mex was our choice for a breakfast restaurant and never failed to disappoint. I would definitely recommend the omelets which are cooked to order while you wait. The main buffet restaurant El Chef is still very good for an all inclusive restaurant. There is plenty of choice here and they always have live cooking stations where fresh meat & fish is available cooked to order. There also tended to be a carvery option available. We simply found it a little too chaotic in there for a nice relaxing meal at the end of the day, unless you got there for opening time at 6pm when it was much calmer. The only main problem I have with this resort is the quality of the beds. We upgraded to a superior apartment and the beds are not what we would expect from a 4* superior apartment room. They were two single beds that would not be out of place in a hostel pushed together to form a double and made for an awful nights sleep. Other than the bed situation the apartment was great. I would strongly recommend this place to families and would book a return trip here in a heartbeat. Couples not so much as you are not really the target market for a resort of this nature. That said, if you swerved the main large pool and "live and loud" kids entertainment in the blue moon bar I am sure you would still have a very enjoyable holiday. One last note is for the wellness centre & spa. We made use of this for a pre-booked shower on our final day given we had a late flight home, and it looked fantastic. A pool, gym, jacuzzi & spa all tucked away in a peaceful retreat. I wish I would have popped my head in sooner. If you are a family thinking about booking this place then do it, you will have a great time.More

Really enjoyed our stay

Just returned from a week at flamingo beach. We had a beach bungalow which was lovely, food was brilliant always lots of choice and wine was really good for an all inclusive. Lots of children but what do you expect with a holiday village? Only downside was could not believe no one takes your luggage to your room we arrived late with a 12 month old and a 4 year old 4 cases, 2 trunkies and hand baggage plus a buggy to be handed a map in the dark to find the room no offer of help the resort is big I was quite shocked at that! Door from lounge didn't lock from inside so out 4 year old sleeping in lounge could have just got up and wandered off so I had to sleep in lounge - suggest a bolt of some description at the top of the door otherwise children could just wander off in the night/morning. Entertainment was brilliant, kids club was fab couldn't get my little girl out of there! Even when the weather wasn't great the entertainment team made the day so much fun. The beach was also lovely we booked a baby pack from first choice and got a steriliser and sun tent included in it which was brilliant for the beach. Staff were very friendly nothing too much trouble - pools were very cold though even with a heatwave of 40+ degrees pools were cold our baby was shivering so we had to bring her out but our 4 year old didn't mind! Overall it was a great holiday just heat one of the baby pools and take guests luggage to their rooms and it would be perfect ! More
