“Modest Hotel”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

A modest hotel, fairly clean and tidy but needs renovating. Situated in the heart of Lloret's night clubs, so fairy noisy at night in high season. Some good bar surround the hotel and the beach is a 2 minute walk. Also close to the bus station and main taxi rank. Good place for groups, young people but would not suggest for families with young children. Staff OK but nothing special. With that in mind the hotel is overpriced. There are many cheaper hostals and hotels in Lloret that are cheaper and better than the Flamingo.

Room Tip: If you must stay here head for a room at the back away from the noise.

My partner and I decided to stay here on our first holiday together. We arrived in April 2012. Having already booked the hotel, I then decided afterwards to read the reviews. Bad mistake! Every review was negative and condemning the place. So we arrived on holiday with our nerves set. No need! The lobby was spotless. Staff were amazing! The girl on desk even helped us plan a day trip to port adventura. Sure the food wasbt up to much but it fills a hole! All in all don't give this one a miss. Perfect walking distance to the beach and great lol restaurant on the corner. Made my first holiday with my boyfriend perfect :) well worth it.

I've booked my holiday in this hotel because in the prospect it said that it's close to the beach and has refrigerator, lcd tv and room safe. It is close to the beach and to everything else. Location is great, especially for night life. Everything else on the list (refrigerator, TV, room safe) you need to pay extra at the reception. But it has nice staff that actually speaks English (which is quite rare in Spain), excellent "serve your self" breakfast and dinner, cheap but decent quality table wine and it has a small pool in the front of the hotel. All in all, we were very pleased with the service for the buck.

Room Tip: Front of the hotel is quite noisy at night, because you're in the middle of the main street.

Having read so many negative reviews I was worried about going to the flamingo. To our surprise, we had a nice visit. Room was clean & comfortable, if basic. Beds comfortable but would recommend asking for a second pillow, which were delivered within 30 mins of requesting them. Rooms on floors 3 to 6 have all been refurbished, so ask for one on these floors. TV & air con worked well, if too many german channels! Wifi a little slow at peak times. However we cannot fault the staff, in particular the reception staff who were so helpful. They went out of their way to help us and translate for us. I would agree that this is a basic hotel but for the price we paid we feel we got value. We only ate lunch once in hotel but found the food ok. Similarly breakfast was basic but definitatelt edible I think some of the reviews are OTT re the food quality. The location is good. Lloret can be noisy but when the window was closed we didn't notice it, plus the air con worked well in our room and was one of the most silent we've had in years. It worked fine all night long. The bathroom was clean & spacious and water pressure in shower was great. The towels probable could do with replacing as while very clean they we're a bit worn.
I would agree that it's sister hotel the Firgola is not up to the standard of the flamingo and there is no comparison between the two. Make sure you stay in the flamingo. I'm wondering if the reviews for the Firgola are being mixed up with the Flamingo, as they share the same grounds. It definitely isn't the worst hotel ever as some reviews claim. I might add it was full in late September so they must be doing something right. The Firgola did look worse for ware, old and tired.

Room Tip: Ask for refurbished room. (floors 3 to 6 as at sept 2012) I'm sure they plan to upgrade the othe...

I booked a five day holiday for me and my 18 yr old daughter as a treat for her birthday and we both up for a laugh and a bit of sunbathing and sangria. I booked the frigola/flamingo (as it stated on my travel voucher) as i thought it was central for us and cheap on a room only basis. After booking i was horrified at some of the reviews for the frigola so i thought i would confirm with travel company which hotel i was defo in ... and yes it was the frigola which i wasnt too happy about .... oh well i thought lets just enjoy for what it is. Arrived at the hotel on a night the room we were given had no bed covers on and no shower curtain or anything...complained straight away and told we could have anotha room in same hotel where i said i wanted a room in the flamingo as the whole hotel looked shut down and nobody around and a bit scruffy and run down. The receptionist said if we stayed at the frigola for the night he would change us to flamingo following morning (great!!). The room in the frigola was very spacious but smelled a bit and the bathroom was awful ......next morning goes to change room to be told sorry non available therefore i get really annoyed with staff and thats that ....an hour later i have a note pushed under my door to say (as if by magic!) that a room was free for us ...yey!! result.....changed rooms at no extra charge. Room was smaller but alot cleaner, nice clean bathroom with powerful shower. Balcony had no outlook (side street) but at least it was clean and we were happy with that for what i paid.
Weather was beautiful so sunbathed and indulged in cocktails on the beach by day. Went out on the nights but a bit quiet with only a few pubs that were busy. Beware of people trying to get you into nightclubs offering free drinks or half price drinks as they then want to charge you to go in (offers look good even with the entrance fee) but nobody in and you end up leaving ....only place worth it was Zoo Club which we went to all week and just over the road from the hotel ....spot on!!
Would i come back to Lloret? probably not unless it was a free holiday ....had fun though :)

Room Tip: ask for pool view in flamingo as only rooms that got sun on the balcony ...avoid the frigola and if...

Stayed here with my husband for a week end of September.. I would not recommend this place for animals. The place is pure filth. We were all inclusive and you had the same menu day in day out. The first night I ate in the restaurant and got food poising. We had to eat out for the rest of the holiday. We had to be moved as the bathroom was filthy. There was no way you could wash in there. The room we moved to wasnt much better.. The swimming pool had floating debris in it so couldnt use it.. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone I wouldnt even let a dog stay here.
