Would go again
This was our first trip to the Canary Islands and was a bit of a last minute boking so we did not know what to expect. We have a 6 and 8 year old so we were looking for pools and close to a beach and hopefully some sun. Flamingo Beach Resort did not disappoint us. TUI transfers from the airport were hassle free and it took us about 30 minutes from the airport with a couple of drop offs on route. On arrival we were met by staff who gave us a very brief run down and gave us our keys. The apartments are quite nice, everything you need including a little kitchen which we did not use as we were on an all-inclusive deal but you could easily make some simple meals if you needed too as everything you need is there. Kids were sleeping on the two sofas in the lounge which were comfortable and they slept well. The main bedroom had 2 single beds pushed together, the mattresses were not the best as they were a little soft but that may be as I am a little fussy. The only negative point in regards to the apartments would be the bedding, the duvet covers don't fit the duvets and they are a little threadbare but not exactly a deal breaker. There are plenty of towels to use in the apartment and there is also a shower gel dispenser in the nice roomy shower. The main pool is heated but it was still not that warm and when the wind picks up it can be a bit cold for kids jumping in and out of the pool a lot but itâs a good fun place for the kids as there is constant music and often games being organised by the staff. There are a couple of different kids clubs for both older and younger kids which we didn't have time to take advantage of but the children that were participating all seemed to be having a lot of fun. There are also a few other pools for younger kids with little slides etc as well as a lap pool which is not heated and if you cross the road onto the other site there are a further couple of pools with another bar which was quite a nice change. All in all the facilities are really good with plenty to do and although it gets busy around the main pool we never struggled to find a spot for us to set ourselves up. There is also a football and tennis court that can be used. There is also a tree climbing experience but I never saw anyone using that and I am not sure if it is allowed to be used. The beach is about 2 mins (max) walk just out the bottom of the resort and it is a really lovely little beach which has been cleverly protected by manmade rocks to make it a safer little bay for children to paddle and play in, there are not many big waves and we were very comfortable with the children playing in and out of the water. It never seemed very windy on the beach either which may have been because of the amount of shelter the beach has. The beach is one of our children's favourite things to do so we spent every morning here and never grew tired of it. The food at the resort was very good, we were not expecting the high standard that we experienced, there are a couple of restaurants for breakfast, we found the upstairs restaurant a little quieter and ate there every morning, a really good choice of fresh food as well as omelette bars etc. For lunch and dinner you use the main restaurant which can get a little hectic but I canât imagine it is any different elsewhere, outside tables are not easy to get hold of as they are limited so you will end up inside more often but the food is very good with plenty of salad options and a grill that will cook you a fresh piece of fish or meat, this does however take a very long time for what ends up being a quite small piece of fish/meat so we tended to opt for the all the ready prepared dished which were of a high standard, all the expected things such as pizza etc but there are lots of other much healthier alternatives and some lovely more traditional food. We found that the snack bar was a quieter place to eat lunch after a couple of days and there is some really nice prepared wraps and salads as well as hot dogs, burgers and pizzas. The prepared sandwiches and wraps as well as the really nice salads were a real highlight. You also get the opportunity to eat at the Taverna and the Mediterranean Restaurant (snack bar during the day), the Mediterranean Restaurant was probably the most disappointing meal of the holiday and would not bother going there if we returned but the Taverna was definitely the highlight of the eating experience during our stay, just the nicest friendliest staff and the Tapas was lovely which just kept on coming. There was so much Tapas that we had to actually cancel our main meals as we couldn't eat any more, there is also a kids menu so the children can try some Tapas and then move on to a kids main if they need to. We didn't drink much alcohol as we were there just the 4 of us but there is plenty of opportunity if required, the Atlantic Bar hidden away is quite a nice spot for a drink whilst watching the kids play in the playground. We did not manage to get to much of the evening entertainment, we saw a little of the magician which was good and we did make the effort and stayed up for the Reps weekly global performance which was very amusing and the children absolutely loved it. The only fault I would have for this resort is not providing enough information to residents, a single sheet of paper with details of bars and restaurants, opening times and what you can get there would have been extremely helpful as it takes a few days to find all of this out yourself, even the meeting the day after our arrival did not provide us with any of this information and as we arrived late Thursday afternoon we really didn't have a clue what we were doing for food etc until lunch the next day. Whilst in Lanzarote we did the submarine experience which we though was worthwhile doing and we also visited Aqua Lava Water Park which is about 10 minutesâ walk away, I wouldn't bother with Aqua Lava, it was very expensive for quite a small park with very few rides as well as them forcing a physical bag check to make sure you don't bring any food in and once you are in you canât leave and come back in, this was something I wish we had not done but we know for next time. We really enjoyed this holiday and there is every chance we return to the same resort in the future.More
Family Life, not what we expected
We booked the family life resort, as we have a 14 month old baby, my parents were also traveling with us, so we thought this would be ideal for us all. Not the case. Firstly, the main restaurant is far too small for the number of people who are accommodated on the resort. We tried to eat as late as possible, to avoid the queues, the pushing in, the cramped tables. The restaurant however closes at 20:30, and the staff are very helpful, and start turning the lights off whilst your eating. The answer to the lack of tables, seating was for the hotel to add more tables to an already overcrowded dining room. The main bar the Blue moon, I think it is called, was cold, and only opened at 19:00, so there was only one area to get a drink of water etc from during the day. This is located in the Mediterranean restaurant, which is located beside the children's pools. The walk to get there during the day, became an obstacle course, as families moved sun loungers across the paths, so moving around the pool areas was a nightmare. Especially if you have a pram. The Blue bar, is a large space, which is busy with the kids shows from 7pm. It's also far too loud. You can't hear yourself speak, we tried sitting outside with our daughter and parents, but it was still ridiculously loud. If you happen to be at either of the bars, when they are due to close, there is also the Atlantic sports bar, which is quiet as there is nothing on there at all, You will find yourself sitting in the dark and being asked to sit outside so they can lock the doors. This is posted as a family life hotel, yet the soft play area for 0-36 months was used by all ages and was unsupervised, my little girl was almost stood on my two children aged around 6 who ran across the tunnel we had built for her to play in. So I removed my daughter from the situation, the baby lounge again not monitored at all, its purpose is for mums and dads to be able to sit, in a cool area to feed, play change their babies. However it was used by pre teens to lay all over the soft seating in yet swimsuits, playing on tablets, parents to use the toilets in there, as they were clean. Again not monitored not supervised. When I spoke to a rep about this i was told that there is a baby club I can use for my baby. Really, we go on holiday to spend time with our child, not to palm her off on someone else. She is my responsibility not that of the hotel or reps. The food was ok, nothing amazing, very repetitive and over salted, in my opinion. The real issues I have with the hotel is that there had been and outbreak of hand foot and mouth prior to our arrival, nothing was put up around the hotel to warn parents of this. The day we left, our daughter had woke up with a rash, so we took her to the onsite doctor, where we found 6 other sets of parents waiting to see the doctor, as their children had chicken pox. I spoke to the reps in case my daughter was not allowed to fly to ensure that we had all the bases covered. My daughter was fine and so we prepared to leave. I advised the rep, that as there was now confirmed cases of chicken pox, the hotel perhaps needed to close the doors to prevent people coming in to catch it, or leave to spread it. She said that signs were being put up. They were indeed, for hand foot and mouth. The room was fine, no issues. We would not go back to another family life hotel.More
Great place for families with children
As mentioned in the title the place is just great for families with children. The facilities are well suited for children and there is nice program/shows for children. All inclusive package makes it easy for parents because you don't have to worry about cooking. However especially the dinner between 6pm-8pm is filled up with small children so I would not recommend any couples to join the dinner that time because the noice can be quite infernal :)More

Second time visiting- very disappointed
As the title says, this was our second time in visiting yet we were left doubting if we'd return for a third time. Whilst we were there our children contracted Hand Foot and Mouth, upon making the rep ' aware' they said that there were signs up to let people know there had been ' a case'. Looking around at all the children I noticed some with spots already so clearly there had been more than one case. There was one small notice on the board, nothing mentioned when arriving or prior to this. I saw no extra cleaning going on of high chairs etc which surely are a breeding ground? I also managed to cut my finger quite badly and asked for a first aid kit.. due to the time of evening (20.30) there seemed to be no first aiders around so I was handed the kit. Luckily I work in healthcare so knew how to clean my wound etc and went to the local medical centre to get it treated ( it needed to be glued ). The receptionist I was liaising with re taxis etc really could do with some customer service training!! The next morning I let the head rep know and she also seemed to have a - oh dear never mind attitude. It's left a really sour taste in our mouths as we really liked this hotel, the location and the entertainment team ( winter team and we were there for the summer team change over too). More
Another visit another hit!
We returned again to Flamingo Village at the end of March as a retired couple with no children and although this is a Family Life resort we had a wonderful time. The service was faultless and the food excellent. Accommodation well maintained and clean with sea and sun facing balcony. Yes, there are children about and you have to make adjustments to your routine to work around them from time to time but apart from occasional overcrowding in the main restaurant at some meals on on some days (very dependent on arrivals and departures) this was not an issue. The speciality restaurants (part of the all inclusive package) were very good and well worth a visit. No issue with sun beds at this time of year. We have just booked a return visit at the end of April!More
