Flamingo Oasis at Benidorm
An excellent hotel.
I do not know why some folks complain big time about the standards of this hotel?
All hotels have some flaws even this one.
This hotel is a 4 star rated hotel but what some people do not understand is that the facilities (like gyms, saunas, indoor pools and the like at hotels help build up stars
Its not just bed rooms.
Take it from me book this hotel.
This is mainly a Thomas Cook and Thomson customer hotel.
Quick check in every thing is ready from temporary room card to paper work.
Then a some times a slower queue to get photo ID cards.
Our bed room was on the 9th floor (room 907) which was in my eyes big and clean the bath room is also big (with 2 sinks). Beds were comfortable even the extra bed for the 3rd person in the party.
The TV in the room (if you watch any during your holiday) has BBC 1, ITV 1, ITV 2, Sky sports 1, Sky sports 2, Setanta. BBC news, Sky news. Amongst other channels.
Food is above par compared to most other hotels I have been in. with great roasts. Tip’s for the restaurant is give your self plenty time , do not go in with minuets to spare because they take the food off dead on time, you may have to queue to get in (peak periods) but it is fast moving. Also make sure some one from your party sits at the table always because it will be cleared and possibly some one else sitting there by the time you get back from serving your food.
The snack time food is sometimes left over food from main meal times and could have been sitting there for a few hours so keep an eye on what you are eating then.
There are 6 lifts and 25 (27 including ground and basement floors at peak periods the lifts can be a pain.
The standard drinks of San Miguel and the usual wines spirits etc with the addition of Strongbow on draught included with the all inclusive bar.
Peak periods had a queue but this was no different than waiting to be served at a busy bar back at home.
The usual kids clubs and adult activities pool, darts quiz etc.
If you want good seats or even just a seat I recommend you get in the room early (opens 20:00) and make sure some one keeps in the other seat(s) while you go to the bar etc other wise it will disappear. The shows and acts are good the entertainments team work hard with musicals, free prize bingo and the famous kids discos. Later on some adult acts like hypnotist, comedian’s etc these come on around 23:00 but the entertainments team puts on a Disney movie for the kids while these are on stage.
Keep your ID card with you at all times and do not loose it (20 euros for a replacement)
Game of pool is 1 euro in the games room, 2 euros else where.
Want extra free internet time use computer number 6 get an extra 5 minutes on this pc (info correct during week
4/4/09 - 11/4/09.
All the staff was friendly
Every thing is done to the second so get what you want early.
I have been to bad hotels and put honest comments on these sites,
We travelled with Thomas Cook on this occasion the only fault’s I came across were
No Entertainment on out bound flight no apology or comment was made.
The coach back to the hotel was over filled with about 2 people without actual seats kids had to sit on laps.
If you really want to go book your tickets over here on line and get 2 days for the price of one, the price I paid came out cheaper than paying on the gate for only one day go to
to buy over here for the best deals £29 for a two adult day ticket £22 child go Take your voucher to the customer service desk to get your 2 day tickets (same ticket for two days)... Use bus numbers 1 and 4 outside hotel next door to flamingo 1st bus 10.20am but get to the stop early bus came 10 mins early one day.
One final tip get you cigarettes from the Tabacos Shops in Benidorm they are much cheaper than in airport and watch the closing times of these shops because I missed out when they closed at 14:30 on Friday.
Good luck and enjoy your visit to The Flamingo Oasis.
