“FABULOUS HOTEL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2011

This is one of the best hotels we have stayed in during our holidays in Spain. It is spotlessly clean, has friendly staff, food caters for all tastes and plenty of it. It is 10 minutes from the airport and being in the centre of town, it takes minutes to walk to the main street which of course has plenty of shops for all kinds of budgets.

We will definately be going back again, but hopefully the hotel will have sorted out the "snacks" situation. 1 sandwich does not constitute a snack, if you don't like cheese and ham then............. no snack available. This was our only complaint about the hotel

Room Tip: pool facing rooms are noisy because of kids having fun in the pool, need a quiet room then ask for o...

Loved the food and facilities at this hotel - there was entertainment every night - we enjoyed it !!!
Location was great: just in the middle of the town close close to shops, transport, etc

We=four sisters over 60 years. We travel together every year to various destinations in Europe

Room Tip: Very nice rooms-we ordered side-by-side rooms, but the hotel

The rooms were basic but very clean. All you would need for a short break. Staff were always friendly as were the guests. There is a pleasant pool area to the rear of the property. Great for sunbathing. The main square and railway station are only a couple of minutes away. All in all a good value base to explore the surrounding town.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view room as some rooms look up to the next block

Just got back from Roc Flamingo. This is my third trip to this hotel, and was for a special birthday celebration with members of my family aged between 39 and 79. I was not disappointed and my family, some of whom had never been before, were most impressed. If anything, the food was better than my previous stays with a great choice and good quality dishes. The staff were friendly, attentative and well trained. A mention should go to Marian in the restaurant, Juan on bar and Josef on bar.

If I had to give any negative commtents it would be that, given the age group of the majority of the residents, the music by the pool was a little bit too modern (bump, bump, bump) but it did improve towards the end of the week when they played more middle of the road music.

In the main, a well managed hotel, fantastic location and brilliant atmosphere. Going back in September - what more can I say?!

Room Tip: Rooms by pool great in winter but at other side, cooler in summer.

After reading all the reviews on here i have to say i was expecting a pretty average stay in the hotel but it was far from that! The hotel looks noway near as dull as it does on the photos ive seen online, it is a very clean hotel with a decent sized pool i suppose it could have been bigger but we never had any problem with it. The hotel itself is situated in a perfect place just five minutes from all the shops and ten minutes walk from the beach (which i have to admit is a bit tiring with all the steps!) but there is a free shuttle bus which the hotel provides which i thought was brilliant! Our room was adequately sized not huge by any means but there wasnt any need for it to be, it fitted two twin beds in nicely with a tv and desk and a good sized bathroom so was perfect for me and my boyfriend. Our rooms were cleaned everyday top to bottom which impressed us even the balcony window was cleaned! The one niggle i do have is that the shower hook was too high up but like i said its a small issue.
The food was very nice and varied, different foods everyday and even my boyfriend who is incredibly picky found something to eat so must have been okay! There was plenty of choice about 8-12 meat, fish and vegetable dishes to choose from plus about 15 different salad items and 6 variants of bread.
The one thing i would say is there isnt many young people at the hotel so if that bothers you you may be better staying at another but there is plenty of bars nearby if you want different nightlife although we were just happy to relax by the pool to be honest.
All in all a very good hotel very reasonably priced for what you get so if you want a cheap sun holiday with a good hotel book here!
