“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Stayed here Nov 12 and off again this week (Nov 13); we had a great time here and although it was full of pensioners they were great craic. Food pretty good for what it is and served with sangria and/or red wine. Very central and secure. Rooms basic but clean which is the most important thing. Staff were good too. Looking forward to going back.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Flamingo. The hotel is small and has a very dated feel but the attractive poolside area and pleasant walk down to the beach make up for this. We stayed all inclusive and found food and drink both to be of a good standard - plenty of choice and well cooked - although you had to be up very early to get a croissant for breakfast. Our stay was marred by a strong smell of drain in our bedroom - but overall a pleasant experience.

Just returned from roc flamingo, the meat in the dining room was under cooked or cold, hardly no staff working in the dining area. Rooms very out dated, small balcony and the pool area does not look like the picture in the brochure? Very disappointed!!!!!!!!! And to top it all we returned to the UK on Thursday 2/11/12 and I end up being violently sick on Saturday and have been diagnosed with gastric flu!!!! The only good point I can pick out is the gentleman on reception was very helpful.

Lovely friendly staff,food ok something for everyone,rooms spacious and roomy,small balconies though.Pool area lovely with 2 pools and garden area but had to keep moving around to get the sun as trees,buildings around blocking sun at times. Good location for bars,shops,also train station very near so we got the train back to Malaga airport at cost of 3 euros 30 for 2 people.

Beach in centre of town,down winding stairs,although there is a lift to the beach.lovely promenade and a lovely walk to Benalmadena Marina if you want a change. Plenty of shops bars,etc and also a large square nearby with plenty going on. Tinas bar near hotel really good for music etc. Anas bar in centre of town good value and frequented by plenty of British locals and holidaymakers for a good night out. Stayed for a week 20th October until 27th October with hubby.a good enjoyable holiday with plenty going on in the resort but not roudy or noisy. There was also drinks with meals in Restaurant.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor with pool view,as some pool activities in afternoon.

Stayed here for 4 nights 22nd-26th October with a friend for a girly break away.
Hotel - fairly basic but a bargain for what we paid and it was only a base to explore Torremolinos. It is clean, the staff are very nice, helpful. The food is good, plenty of choice. I have stayed in a 4* in Costa Brava and the food at the Flamingo was easily as good. We paid for half board and were pleasantly surprised to be able to help ourselves to the beer, sangria and wine at evening mealtimes and the quality of the drinks was very good. Like the food it is self service so you just help yourselves.
Rooms - basic but very clean and cleaned every day, towels changed every day. Shower excellent very powerful. Small balcony. T.V. had sky news and ITV, couldn't find BBC1.
Position - excellent. A few minutes from the station and Casa San Miguel(the main street, filled with shops and bars that leads down to the promenade/beach.)
We thought that the prices in the shops were excellent compared with other resorts. When we go again we will take less in our cases and buy some things in resort, the clothes were lovely and very reasonable.
Transfer-Train 1.60euros and very easy to do, takes about 10mins once you're on.
Taxi - we got a taxi back to the airport for a bit of luxury/more time in the resort, this cost us 17euros.
Our flight was not until 9.30pm so I asked at reception if they would provide us with a courtesy room so that we could freshen up. They did this free of charge even though we had officially checked out.
I would recommend a higher floor in this hotel to get advantage of having plenty of light in the room as the area is quite built up. We were on the 6th floor with a view of the pool and could see the sea in the distance.
found a little Egyptian/Moroccan bar called the Luna Egyptia, it's before you get to the Casa San Miguel, near the fountain, down a little side street. They made lovely Irish coffees for 2.50 euros and you can buy trinkets, moroccan lamps, incense etc while you're in there and the staff are lovely.
I would stay at this hotel again when I next visit Torremolinos as it is a clean, comfy base to explore the resort.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor to get plenty of light in the room.

Paid £300 for 6 days all inclusive including flights with Icelolly. Must admit it was pretty worth it. The hotel was dated but clean. Rooms were ok and boasted ITV as well as Sky news. AI drinks were ok, lager was nice and the vodka was drinkable at 37.5%. There was wine and beer on tap in the restaurant as well as proper cocacola,fanta etc for AI guests. The food was good and plenty of choice but did get a bit repetative after the 4th day.Its a hike to the beach,down a steep 15min decline but was nice on the front. Entertainment was really really bad. The Entertainer girl was annoying and you always heard her before seeing her.Its best to avoid her cos she doesnt do much entertaining,just chatting and comes to your table for ages. She even came over and watched what I was doing on the internet!!!Nice girl but needs to calm down. Dont go for the entertainment, 2 free crap shows, one night the entertainment was one game of free bingo for a bottle of wine, seriously!!!
Torremolenos is nice but after a week u are ready to move on cos u seem to going into the same shops after a few days cos its only a couple of streets long.
