“A splendid break”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Travelled on the train from Budapest. Ten minutes walk from the station and a lovely welcome from reception. Most of the facilities are complementary, including bath robes. You are supposed to be able to rent a kettle but we were told this is no longer available. Our room was beautiful and spacious with two balconies and comfortable arm chairs. The buffet dinner was, in the scheme of things, above average.

We travelled to Balatonfured by train fron Budapest and the hotel was close to the station taking about 10 mins to walk.
We had a superior room which was double aspect so had a sea and land views from the two balconies . Also had the benefit of two armchairs.
The bathroom was elegant but nowhere to put things.
It would have been great to have had a kettle in the room to make coffee etc.
The Buffet meals were better than some we have had
A pleasant hotel on the lake shore, a good place to spend a few days. Tihany is worth a visit the bus station is at the train station but the bus runs past the hotel if you can work out the timetable

Room Tip: We had room 1129 which was a corner room with two balconies

We went to the Flamingo with our two children (6 and 8) who liked it a lot. It's a safe and family friendly place. We went in the quietest season in February. We had a family suite, which was nice, spacious and clean with a slightly dated decor (cherry wood colours and shiny maroon tiles, very 1990s). The food was surprisingly good. Excellent location, nice pools and other facilities (saunas, Turkish bath, salt chamber etc.etc.) Friendly staff. Drinks terribly overpriced. I think the value for money was not excellent - I think a fair price for what we got (especially in the low season in February) would have been about 80% of the price we ended up paying. In spite of this, I would recommend this hotel because of the clean rooms and the safe environment it offered to families.

During my three-night stay, I had a very positive experience at Flamingó Wellness Hotel and would recommend it without hesitation. This hotel is a world apart from some of the "retro," communist-era hotels that still dot Lake Balaton. My room, which included a small balcony, was spacious and had basic, but functional furniture. The bathroom was surprisingly large and nicely updated. I was perhaps most impressed with the food served during both breakfast and dinner; both were included in the price of the room. The quality of both buffet meals far exceeded what you would expect from most four star all-inclusive resorts, and included a nice selection of cheeses during dinner-time, as well as a good mix of Hungarian and foreign dishes.

Flamingó's indoors and outdoors recreational facilities were impressive. They have a pleasant, private sandy beach, which wasn't overcrowded, as well as an outdoors pool (mainly for children), a decent beach bar and a good selection of thermal pools and saunas in the indoors spa. In contrast to many resorts, as a solo traveler I never felt accosted by rowdy children and the hotel's staff didn't treat guests as though they were numbers or items on an assembly line. Both the reception staff, as well as those during breakfast and lunch, were friendly and helpful.

Most of the guests were middle-class Hungarian families with young children, combined with older German couples, who were also fairly numerous. Overall, I spent a relaxing three-days on the beach, swimming in Lake Balaton, trying out the thermal water and, to top it off, I got a pretty decent massage in the spa. When I'm next in Budapest and need a break from the city, I would not hesitate going back to Flamingó.

I've been there 4 times and I always enjoy it. The room and bathroom very big, comfortable, clean. There is big balcony from where there is a very good view to the lake Balaton and Tihany. The half board means big and various breakfast and dinner. you can eat on the sunshine in the morning, very nice. The staff very kind. There are pools indoor and ourside as well. Lot of sauna. I can just recommand to everybody.

We had a very good time here, if I'd have to choose a hotel in the Balaton area, I'd definitely come back to this place. The rooms were perfect. Some of them doesn't have a view on the Balaton lake and I think all rooms go for the same price, so if it's possible ask for a room with a view on the lake.
As we stayed there for a conference, we only had breakfast in the hotel but it was very nice. I especially liked the spa area, it has everything you need. The hotel also has a nice private beach and a port for sailboats.

We spent 5 days at Flamingo. The hotel is next to the lake, has wellness-spa section and great view of Tihany.
That is why I chose, at the booking I highlighted that I wish to stay in room with lake-view.
We got a suite (we were 4 together) which had a view ont he glass roof of the spa, completely hiding the Balaton behind.
The room was OK, spacious and clean.
The hotel has a sandy beach-like part at the shore, good pool bar, as well.
The water temperature of the outdoor pool for kids is simply cold, however it is nice and would attract the children.
Surprisingly the hotel management do not wonder why it is completely empty during the whole hot day.
Unfortunately I had the feeling that the pools are not clean enough. There were a crowd, that is true, but the ’brown line’ which ran along right above the water level on the blue mosaic tiles in the indoor pool was not from yesterday, simply it was not properly maintained and cleaned.
Same as for the outdoor pool.
The lifeguard was rude when I asked him to warn a group of drunk people to behave who were disturbing the guests in the jakuzzi.
The hotel provides half board for the guests with a buffet system.
Good variety and lot to choose from. Dishes are delicious, except for the sweets, which are boring from the second day, but they also serve ice-cream which is popular.
The biggest issue though the burned-out staff in the restaurant. They prefer to clean few tables first than serving the drinks for the guests, which are not cheap and they add 10% service charge on the order.
Some of them are educating the guests, highlighting that they are very busy, besides commenting the clients to each other, which is simply unacceptable.
