My fiancée and I stayed at the Flamingo for 5 nights this week, and having seen mixed reviews, we were keen to judge the hotel on our own.
Some of the poor reviews here have me scratching my head.... have these people stayed at the same hotel?
It is a 3 star Spanish town centre hotel, which is 5 minutes from the station (i suggest using the train from the airport, it is quick and cheap at 1 euro 70), and maybe a 20 minute walk to the sea front (or the hotel provides a shuttle bus to the beach should you wish)
The hotel is clean and bright, maybe dated in decoration, but this does not stop the hotel having a clean and welcoming feel. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable and provide exactly what you would expect from a 3 star hotel.
The beds whilst not super soft, are not uncomfortable, and we didn't struggle to sleep at all.
We went half board, and the choice of food at breakfast and dinner was not extensive, but there was always something to eat, and it was warm and pleasant. Beer, wine and soft drinks are available on tap and are free for as much as you want, a wonderful touch in my opinion.
Credit must also go to the staff, all of whom were friendly and extremely helpful, as we had a late flight we were even provided a room where we could shower before we left, even though we had checked out earlier.
Overall, for a 3 star hotel in the centre, you get more than your monies worth here, if we are in Torremolinos again, we would not hesitate to stay here.
