We stayed 1 week in this hotel and had a fantastic stay.The check-in was fast and the reception staff was very efficient yet friendly and helpful.

Rooms: We had an amazing room facing the ocean. The room was clean and spacious. The cleaning staff was great and made sure that our room was clean every day.

Service: The staff was generally friendly and worked hard to provide a good service to their guests. However, the nature of tourists and the all-inclusive package demanded the staff to deal with some drunk and impolite guests. It was obvious that the staff was frustrated and stressed at times.

We have stayed at this hotel before when it wasn't all-inclusive and unfortunately it has lost some of its luxury feeling and exclusiveness. Young guests now spent all day at the bar drinking free cocktails and being very noisy and rute. At times we wished that the hotel management would have enforced some rules about moderate drinking and guest behaviour.

Food: The buffet was good. As a vegetarian I started to run out of choices but the food itself was quite good. Through the all-inclusive package the guests can eat pretty much all day (breakfast, lunch, snacks, cake and dinner).

Location: Exclusive location! The hotel is right next to the beach with amazing views from the rooms, pool and outdoor dining area.

Over all: The hotel has a fantastic location. The hotel rooms are spacious and clean with big balconies. The staff is friendly and working very hard to provide good service.

Please note that this area of Mallorca is a huge party zone and the hotel certainly has guests who want to spend their days partying and drinking. Guests wanting to spend a quiet holiday should not book this hotel.

Room Tip: Try to book a room with ocean view.

Stayed here for one week at the end of July and based on some of these reviews we expected something really horrible, but were def positively surprised!

Staff was mostly very nice although they didn't all speak that much english (once a waitress didn't even understand "red wine"..). The food was pretty good and there were enough choices for everyone. There were also plenty of choices at the bar. The location was nice just across the beach, but probably not the best place to stay with kids as it sometimes got quite noisy in the evenings..

The air condition in our room did work, but it definitely wasn't powerful enough to cool down the room and in few nights we had little difficulties sleeping 'cause it was too hot.

The biggest downside was maybe the area itself, 'cause it was just filled with germans and in every restaurant/bar/shop/whatever everybody thought you were german as well and were trying to speak german to you and got really confused when you started with english.. I think that in the whole week we saw like 2 people who weren't from germany.. :-) But didn't let that bother too much. (and no, I have nothing against germans)

But over all we had a really nice holiday!

Never done a review on here before, but read T A before booking anywhere as its usually a good guide as to what to expect,, must say that we ended up in this hotel as Travel Republic thought it was a suitable replacement hotel to the one we booked in a different area of Majorca was "full" when we got there(thats another story !!!)....To be fair the hotel may be ok, food maybe excellent, doubt it very much though !!!.... Never got the chance to varify these points.... Absolutely shocking experience. You would love this hotel and its surroundings, which the hotel staff and management seemed to be very happy to tolerate and encourage, if you enjoy the constant LOUD intolerable sound of hundreds of drunken "yobs" German they may have been but the nationality is irrelevant, may i add, and this was at 9.30 in the morning and continued all throughout the day and night... More likened to a football match taking place in a huge open aired "beer keller" and lasted 9 hours rather than 90 minutes..... As the evening went on the "lapdancing" club directley on the doorstep had its workers sat on the hotel steps (which was wet from the guests and passers by urinating on the steps rather than walk 20 yards to the toilet) were openly plying for trade, and a lapdance was not the offers being made... In fact i need to stop writing this as i could be here forever and this is not conducive with my stress levels. Needless to say we didnt stay and would wholeheartedly suggest that NOBODY EVER EXPERIENCES THIS HOTEL !!!!!!

This is the first time that I have ever felt compelled to write a hotel review, having travelled extensively all over the world over the past thirty years. In fact, we were so appalled we did not even stay at the hotel and made alternative arrangements. I would have rather slept on the beach rather than this hotel. Upon arrival, you will note that the entrance is directly opposite a brothel. The noise and commotion in this area has to be seen to be believed!! The German clientelle are cheered on by the staff as they constantly perform the noisiest of German tribal songs in various states of undress, in the main, totally naked at 3.00pm in the afternoon.

As we walked in to reception, two guests were actually unrinating in the potted plants outside reception, all of 20 yards from the toilets. Not the hotels fault??? They actually stood and watched, said nothing, did nothing - they left it to me to make my feelings known to these yobs then ran inside.

The girls that work in the brothel were plying for trade outside the hotel reception - again, positively encouraged by the staff - they made no attempt whatsover to consider the welfare of their guests.

All in all, the worst experience ever.

Room Tip: The best room would be in any other hotel.

We recently stayed in the flamingo resort and have nothing negative to say about it at all. The food and drink on offer was excellent and as an all inclusive customer this is obviously a bonus. The standard of cleanliness was superb and all staff that i dealt with were always pleasant and helpful. The resort is generally for families with children although there is an adults only bar open from 6 till midnight. Myself, my wife and my 3 year old son all had a wonderful time and will hopefully be returning back to the flamingo in the not to distant future. Well done to Angel and his team.

This is the worst 4 start hotel EVER

1) Air conditioning doesn't work, and this ment we had to change our room.
2) Food was decent, staff is awfull, they come and bug and press you to leave as soon as possible ( "Do you need anything else?" "Is there anything you would like?" in a repetitive manner that surpasses the limits of decency)
3) No matrimonial beds-the room setup had 2 beds joined together on a slippery tile surface that made them move and slip around the room easily even during sleep
4) Rude staff-they speak 0 english and unless you force yourself and raise an argument they will simply delay your request forever
5) NO FRIDGE IN THE ROOM- What kind of 4 star hotel doesn't offer a fridge?? You actually had to pay for a minibar that was locked.

Please stay away from this place, if it wasn't for the beauty of the island, this vacation would have been a total disaster. Save your money or go somewhere else.
