My wife and I visited the flamingo beach resort for a weeks holiday in April and thought the hotel was lovely with friendly staff. It's always difficult for us as we are vegan and my wife is gluten free so we emailed the hotel ahead to let them know. The chef in the main restaurant was really accommodating and was...

My wife & myself much prefer smaller boutique type hotels, by reading the reviews on here it sounded ideal. After a 5 hour delay with Thomsons, the long flight from the UK & hour transfer we were not in the best of moods by the time we arrived. On getting to the resort our mood lifted massively, the staff were...

I didn't want to leave this hotel. I have only just got back yesterday and I was there 2 weeks from April 3rd to April 17th. I was in room 1220 which over looked the small pool at the back. I would have liked a room with main pool view/sea view but apparently the company I traveled with do not...

“If you want the main pool view then it appears you need odd numbered rooms. The rooms with hammocks were on ground level.”
