“Yet another great week at Flamingo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

Another great week at Flamingo seemed to be a bit quiet around the resort but that's no bad thing our apartment is in a great position with top views over the beach and marina and out to sea the reps left us alone (think they might have got the message we do NOT want to join the points ripoff system thank you) oh one thing i would like to see changed is the reps using all the covered Deck seating, Eating out on an evening is still a bit hit and miss but did enjoy meals at Verdes and Marios so all in all a great week relaxing in the sun

Room Tip: try to get an apartment on the upper floors

There seems to be alot of negativity for this resort, When I visited the resort in January, I bought a holiday package, I stayed on the resort In one of the new refurbishments in april, Fantastic, I could see the Port from my sun drenced belcony, What a great way to start the morning. The staff were very friendly, the food and drinks where not expensive, 4 very happy hours everyday. 2-4-1 on all drinks. 10euros for any night of the week including a drink and as much as myself and the wife could eat.I have 4 holidays a year and have stayed in loads of hotels where I felt like just a number in a box room, Its nice to have an appartment loads of space an staff that knew myself and june my wife by our first names. Definatly the best holiday ive had in years.Please dont be put off this resort because others dont know how to enjoy there holiday and only look for reasons to find fault. I am now a full member of Flamingo and have upgraded to Platinum with Interval International. I booked my return visit to flamingo with the family in August, 2 x appartments sleepind 10 in total. 1 bed and a 2 bed, only cost 479 for all of us. I cant wait to see everyone again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front are the best I was in 620.

We arrived and were told that our room was downstairs from the lobby - the stairs area was being refurbished and was blocked off with plastic - the stairs down to our room were covered in plaster and paint. The area in front of our bedroom was full of rubbish - originally it must have been a garden area and the workmen were refurbishing a large area next to our room. The front balcony view was OK. We then went into the room. Very basic, not plush as we were promised. (1) the wardrobe doors would not open or close without force; (2) the toilet flushed once, then there was a delay of about 1 hour before it flushed again; (3) the TV (and we were promised (as will many others) satellite TV) - we had BBC1, BBC2 and ITV (but ITV only until around 10:30am it then disappeared until the early hours of the morning) - everything else was in Spanish; (4) we went out in the afternoon and bought some ice and put it in the freezer box - melted overnight!; (5) there is a small boiler under the sink in the kitchen - this is what heats your water - one shower and then that's it until quite a while after - don't even try to have a bath! (6) thr water from the shower ran along side the side of the bath and into the kitchen. We were moved to another room eventually, but most the hot water problem and TV were still the same. Th best thing about it is the location.

WE are surprised that Flamingo rates so low. First, it is located in Puerto Colon, a little haven before the same-ness of the Las Americas/Fanabe strip, and second, because it is really pleasant! I accept that we were lucky; on arrival we were allocated apartment 315, which feels like going down to a cellar, with little light and no view - but having protested to the rep (yes, there is time-share selling) we were then upgraded to 606, with 2 beds, 2 bathrooms and wonderful views across the bay. Paul, 'our' Grand Holidays timeshare rep, was very pleasant and accepted our refusal without demur. The pool is pleasant, the staff are helpful, and the location is great! If you are going to Las Americas, Puerto Colon is the place to be, being a little cove quite unlike the rest of the strip.Local eating houses are great (see my Odissea review). We were surprised at the number of Russians there - they probably outnumbered the Brits, and there was even a Russian-only BBQ night. However, I'm sure that we all enjoyed a lovely location.

Room Tip: Avoid the 300 to 315 rooms - our rep said that he normally needed a hard hat when visiting occupants...

We stayed at Flamingo Club early May 2013 and were pleasantly surprised considering some of the reviews we had read. I think some of the negative reviews would have been from people who participated in timeshare swap as part of the complex is still owned as timeshare while the other is Grand Holidays who are in the process of upgrading the facility.
We had a very nice apartment away from the main building and overlooking the beach. Good quality furnishing and decoration but we were told this was one of their show apartments and the others were slowly being brought up to this standard. The lounge had excellent leather sofa and a well appointed kitchen with everything necessary including washing up liquid, sponge and a tea towel. opened onto a good sized patio with sofas and a coffee table. The bathroom was marble walled and had two basins. The bedroom is large with quite the biggest bed I have ever seen in a hotel. Plenty of storage space in the bedroom and good thick curtains to block out the light.
The negatives however included a total lack of soundproofing between the units, no exaggeration when I say we could hear others' doorbells ring and hear them flush the toilet at night and these were not noisy neighbours. I found the bed extremely hard and the pillows too flat and soft but this may well be personal taste as my partner didn't have any bother with that.

In the bathroom the shower came straight down from the ceiling. OK for a man but not so good if you're trying to keep your hair dry. The light in the bathroom was poor and the addition of a shaving/makeup mirror and some towel rails would have improved it. TV reception wasn't good but this could have been a local problem rather than specific to Flamingo.
Room service was a bit hit or miss. None the first two days, then performed two consecutive days, none the next two days and once the day before we were due to leave. When it was done it was faultless.

The first day we were there was BBQ night which was included in the cost of the stay. Good food and included a jug of sangria. Each night there was some for of entertainment which finished about 11pm so no disturbance at night.

We really appreciated the use of a courtesy room for a shower and change of clothing on our last day as we had to vacate our room by 10am and weren't being collected until 5.30pm. All the staff were very pleasant, friendly and helpful.

I have rated Flamingo Club 4* on our experience but it would only take a few adjustments as mentioned to make it 5*
