My boyfriend and I have stayed at this wonderful hotel one week from August 21 to August 27. We arrived by plane and decided to take the train from Malaga International Airport to Torremolinos. Not being familiar with this city, the location of Flamingo hotel was perfect, just round the corner from the train station, walking distance even with some heavy luggage! No need for taxi!
We took the first flight so we arrived to the hotel at 9.00am and they gave us a room (they didn't make us wait until 12) so checking-in was accomplished by the staff in a very friendly, efficient manner.
We found our room furnished and decorated in a very refined, modern style, very spacious and comfy. The bathroom was very clean, excellent warm shower, towels changed daily if you just remember to leave dirty ones in the tub. The air-conditioning/heater in the room worked perfectly!Rooms get cleaned by noon and after a hard night playing and partying, you can have a peaceful afternoon nap.
We found a great deal for bed and breakfast and it was really worth it! The breakfast was ample, with hot eggs, bacon and sausages, as much fruit, yoghurt, toast, orange/pineapple juice and coffee as you like!
Though most hotel visitors at the time were retired Spanish people, everyone was very polite, open-minded and friendly, the atmosphere at the hotel in general calm and relaxed.
They offered different entertainment each night of the week, from flamenco dance to theater and plays, but it was mainly targeted at the older audience.
Upon leaving, we forgot a rather expensive souvenir in our room and only realized it was missing when unpacking back home. We called "Flamingo" and to our astonishment and surpise, not only they found it, but they immediately sent it to us Express Mail free of charge! We know many hotels that wouldn't have been as honest and caring as to go this extra mile for their departed guests!
We definitely recommend this hotel and will book soon to stay there again!
Thank you so much for your hospitality,
