Arrived home from a weeks stay at the Flamingo on Sunday and I look back with a mixed review.
We arrived in the early hours of Sunday morning and we were shown to our room by an elderly gentleman who spoke no english. This was fine until he showed us our room.
It was very basic, a bed with a rock hard mattress, a small dark bathroom with mould on the tiles, a nice balcony and an airconditioning unit. We walked in, he turned the key in the aircon and nothing happened. He tried again and still it didnt work. He looked at us, shrugged and disappeared. it was already 25 degrees at 7am, after traveling for hours the room already felt hot and stuffy.
We waited an hour or so but he didnt reappear. I phoned reception and to their credit someone arrived within 5 minutes. He took a look and said "remote broken. 10 minutes" and he shot off, thinking he was going to get a new remote. 4 hours passed and still no aircon, by this time the room was unbearably hot. I phoned reception and the same young lad reappeared with a working remote and at last, we had aircon. (we were assured this was included in the price)
The bed linen was old, so old it had holes in it and was slightly stained. The towels were like cardboard and were extreamly worn and frayed around the edges with threads hanging lose.
We had a balcony room over the pool. We had asked not to have a pool view but it was ok. That was until the music started in the evenings. Abba, Cliff Richard, Village People, Greece Soundtrack all playing full volume until 1am. It was awful!!! Especially as there were few people actually sat at the bar, and none actually dancing!!
At the end of our stay the manager tried to charge us for the aircon, after he assured us it was included. When we reminded him he told us it was included, it suddenly became some girls fault apparently. Pretty obvious he was pulling a fast one!
As we were checking out, 2 other couples were making complaints about different problems. One involving asking for another hotel.
The hotel is deffinately not a 4* and we will deffinately not be heading back any time soon.
