Back from an excellent week at Flamingo Beach with my wife and two boys aged 6 months and 8 years Due to flight times we arrived late to the resort. Once we had checked in it was after the restaurant had closed. We were told that they had kept the restaurant open with a cold food buffet for the people arriving late from the airport. Always appreciate simple touches like this. Location The resort is in an excellent right next to the beach and about a 10 minute walk away from the centre of Playa Blanca, along the sea path. Rooms Positives - very spacious and well maintained. Cot supplied for our young son (booked as an extra with Thomson) Negative - on top floor which meant carrying our son and buggy up and down the stairs Pool Areas Positives - there are, I believe, 5 different pools in the complex. Well that's how many we used anyway. They are all well maintained and my older son spent a lot of the week in them. Negatives - The resort have a pool policy, stating "any sunbeds left with a towel for a long period of time, is considered "FREE TO USE." This policy is by and large ignored by guests, staff and the TUI reps. Guests were often putting towels on beds at 2330 at night ready for the next day. When this was raised with the staff and the reps I was basically told if you can't beat them join them. So unless you are prepared to lower yourself to their level you won't get a sunbed if you turn up beyond about 730 in the morning. Food and Drink Positives - plenty of places to eat and drink. Largely buffet style, although they do give you an invite to go to the taverna by the beach and have waiter service for a night. Negatives - spirits are "local spirits" and are an acquired taste. Entertainment. Aimed mainly at the kids and they really enjoy it. Not great if you are an adult expecting something aimed at you. As my son really enjoyed this that was good enough for me. Overall we had a great week. It was just let down by the inconsiderate people putting their towels on the beds and then not using them for most of the day. As well as resort staff not being prepared to implement their own sunbed policy. I hope this can be resolved so that there is a much fairer chance of getting a bed. Would I recommend this resort? Certainly and I would go back with my family again myself. More
The perfect family resort - ticks all the boxes
We spent a week at the Flamingo Beach and had the best holiday with our children, aged 3 and 7. Our superior room was spacious, spotless and had a stunning view of the coast of Fuerteventura. The food was some of the best we have experienced in an AI resort, with a constantly changing selection and plenty for the kids to try. We also enjoyed our meals at the Taverna and the Mediterranean Bar & Grill, which were included in our package. The TUI kids clubs were fantastic, the staff really worked amazingly hard to entertain the children and ours couldn't get enough. The variety of activities they enjoy was fab and the evening parties meant hubby and I had a child free dinner one night. The evening entertainment was geared for all ages and the entertainment team had such phenomenal energy, it was infectious. They all clearly love and enjoy their jobs and wanted everyone to enjoy themselves too, which we did. This was the kind of holiday where you could do as little or as much as you wanted to, with plenty of activities on offer. We chose to do very little. The beach is lovely, great for swimming and has fish you can feed. It is also a bit of a sun trap! Yes, the whole reserving of sunbeds is an issue, but that isn't helped by people reserving them and not turning up until mid afternoon. There isn't enough to go round the main pool, but when you go in the summer holidays, you have to accept that. Just like you have to accept the pool and restaurant will be busy at times. But everyone was happy and friendly, which more than made up for it. Full credit goes to all staff, they really do work hard to make sure everyone is happy. And we knew we had made the right choice when the children said they didn't want to leave and that the whole holiday had been amazing. Thank you Flamingo Beach, we will be back!More
Flew from Bristol the flights were excellent, i am over 6ft and I fly a lot on business and was expecting a cramped flight but was surprised to find a really modern plan with plenty of leg room. We had a coach transfer from the airport to hotel which took approximately 30 mins, the coach again was modern, air conditioned and had plenty of leg room. The hotel facilities were very good there are 2 main pools with smaller toddler pools attached to each. The general areas of the hotel were kept meticulously clean by an army of hotel staff. The room was pretty good, with excellent high speed wifi - TV had very poor selection of free channels but that didn't bother us particularly. The room was cleaned every other day to a really good standard. Food - we went all inclusive, there were 2 main restaurants which were open around meal times and a snack bar. There were also 3 bars to get (non brand name) drinks and ice creams through out the day. Quality of food was really good, with different culinary themes each day. Kids club - didn't do Entertainment - we went every other night to the 'download' which is a dance competition for the kids.. the was great the kids loved it and the TUI staff put in loads of energy and effort to make sure everyone had a good time. We also watched a couple of the cabaret acts - which were pretty good. Excursions - we went on the Volcano and Camels trip - the volcano part was excellent but the camels bit was not so good.. We also went on the pirate adventure which was really good apart from some rough sea queasiness. Only one negative - there was a daily fight for sunbed space - i suspect that there were not enough sunbeds to support the number of guests.. many people were getting up really early to put the towel down - this was the only negative on the whole trip. Overall i would highly recommend this holiday the TUI staff were excellent very approachable, loads of positivity and energy and they were well trained and very customer focused.More
3 Days was enough!
Where to start... If your looking for a stress less, relaxing, tranquil place for a holiday steer well clear! This place is bedlam, a fight for everything... Lets start with the good, good sized rooms and the food was okay varied but usually cold! That's about it.. In My opinion the pools & areas are far too small for this resort, unless you prepared to get up before 7 to snag a sunbed around an over crowded pool sitting on top of the next family, or getting threatened because the Life guard had removed towels and you were now on "Their sun beds". On the mornings of my "holiday" I went down to the pool to try and get a bed, (7.30am) all but 3 were taken and the 3 left were broken a problem we encountered on more that one occasion as it turns out a lot of the sun beds were broken, missing straps so you fell through or backs were missing so only one setting. The only ones ever left were around the kiddies pool.. Oh the Joy screaming toddlers while trying to relax. Our 12 year old was board and felt intimidated on more that on occasion! The pools are a joke. sorry... The main food hall is noisy and crowded so we tried to use the top floor restaurant, as it was a lot less rowdy & crowded. The food although varied was mostly cold. Nothing more to say really.. The room, a great size but beds were not comfy and I woke most mornings with back or neck ache. That's when I could sleep as we had Mr Snorry either next door or below us.. That guy was impressive. However not conducive with getting sleep. Unfortunately after a few days we'd had enough and requested a hotel change. there was no way we could get any memories if we had stayed at this place as we were just miserable tired and fed up. After 3 days with no sleep and having to fight for your right to party.. we left on our 4 day. sorry but will not advise or recommend any one staying here if you want to relax. Unless noise Hustle & Bustle & stress is your thing. The hotel we feel is seriously miss-represented & miss-sold to us, as it was not what we expect from a family holiday. This was not our original choice either, as the TUI shop managed to mess that one up too. Thomson were obviously concerned as we wanted to change hotels, So we were charged another £1300. on top of the 3k already spent to continue our holiday elsewhere. Not the first time Thomson have screwed us over this year. However it will be the last.More
Great chilled out holiday
After reading other reports I was a tad concerned about this hotel, but I needant have worried. Yes it was busy and the pools were crowded. People did bag their sunbed slot very early but we didn't use the pools, preferring to go to the beach instead which was glorious. From the moment I contacted the hotel before arrival to the day we left the staff and management could not have been more accomodating and hospitable. Travelling as a family of 4 adults we had two apartments that the hotel managed to allocate next to each other. Our view was fabulous of the beach and room was cleaned as often as we required. Our lady looking after our room was so pleasant and even though my Spanish was limited we managed ok to communicate. Food was plentiful and varied and majority of the time hot. On the occasions when it was warm it was because we were late and restaurants were close to closing. There was the option to have your fish, meats etc cooked for you, including omelette at breakfast. Wine was available including cava and was always chilled. Staff were great! Very friendly and helpful. To many to mention but Pepe, Bhakir and Marilena are a few who struck a chord, including Victor. In all fab holiday, we were really chilled at the end because we chose to do certain things. The staff all work extremely hard to make this a holiday experience for everyone and it is geared towards younger kids, but we didn't have a problem with this as we were out of the main drag. a special mention needs to go to the Thomson's rep, Ben. On more than one occasion he went out of his way to help and advise, and always had a smile on his face. Would I go here again, yes but maybe a little out of high season, but for families great place to stay. If you have any concerns talk to reception, nothing is too much trouble for them.More
