Our usual hotel in Palma was full, and we booked in at the Barcelo Flamingo basically because it was the only hotel which had a room available for the dates we wanted. Having said that, the hotel turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The staff were typical of a large hotel chain, not unfriendly but lets say none of them went out their way to be overhelpful, but polite and businesslike.
The room we had was lovely, we missed a sea view, but we were intrigued by the hotel's bathroom, which had one huge frosted glass wall, which you could clearly see through when someone was taking a shower! (Great fun, though!)
The rooms were all pleasantly furnished although very orange and yellow (if you don't like orange and yellow don't go to the Flamingo).
We actually ended up liking the Flamingo a lot, we'd never stayed in Playa De Palma before, we always plumped for Palma itself along the Paseo Maritim, but the Flamingo was within easy walking distance of many shops and bars (the Sun Inn is particularly recommended for us Brits) and the beach is an easy stroll down a hill.
The hotel has an indoor pool and a gym which we used free of charge. We never dined in the restaurant because it was a little expensive and we got better value for money exploring the many factilities that Playa has to offer.
