Historical Traveler Reviews Marconfort Flamingo Playa Aparthotel Benidorm
Basic but does the job
just back from a week at the flamingo playa . room was pretty basic but had just about all you need. they do have great balconies which get the sun all day that was the best bit . never tried the food or entertainment , there is a great bar along the road . the titanic, great food . i would go back to the flamingo as long as the price was right .
Me and my family have just back from flamingo playa, we stayed there from 07/08/04-22/08/04. I cant really complain about the hotel as we had no problems(apart from the scottish lads coming in early hours and throwing themselves in the pool). The only thing i will complain about is the lifts in the main block, they were dodgy!! We even got stuck in it one night coming back from the pubs, then when we finally got out the security accused us of jumping in the lift!!!!! plus there was no air conditioning. Bar staff were lovely&friendly apart from paco(the boss i think) he never smiled and when you asked him to smile he just shook his head.Our entertainer Chris was great, especially with kids. The kids club was closed which was ashame!!!!!!!!!!!!, as i have a 6yr old and a 3yr old. Thought benidorm was ok but wouldnt go back for 2 weeks. But defo go back to flamingo playa.
We enjoyed the hotel so much that we are going back in August, it will be our third stay in 18 months all the staff are wonderful even the night porter who was very polite every night, we enjoy the place very much
myself and a female friend has just stopped in the flamingo playa hotel. i found the accomodation very nice, the place was clean, the rooms spacious and staff lovely. we actually stayed in the joining building the annex but this is still part of flamingo playa. i enjoyed my stay there and would recommend the place to anyone, the building is situated just the right distance away from the pubs and clubs. the hotel bar is nice for families but for young adventurers like ourselves it was better on the square. overall i enjoyed our stay.
We stayed at the Flamingo Playa from the 1/4/04 till 8/4/04. The apartments are in two blocks beside each other, we were in the smaller block(only 13 floors, main block has 23 with 3 lifts). I thought this might be a problem with the lifts but there are two on our block, which worked fine. The rooms were ok(one bedroom with two single beds,large bathroom, entrance hall/area,living room/kitchen with only one lounger for 4(2 adults & 2 kids) to sit on/lounger can be turned into bed for child + bed can be pulled out from underneath for 2nd child(bit of a pain every night). The good thing was there were 2 sets of patio doors the one in the bedroom making it easier to sit out on the balcony late at night without disturbing the kids.The only major problem we had with the room was the shower tap was broken. We reported this to the rep at the welcome meeting and again a couple of days later but wasn't fixed by the time we left. There are two outdoor pools both with kids pools 0.6M these were clean the areas around the pools were clean. Staff were friendly, On site supermarket a little expensive but there is another one two minutes walk next to the titanic bar(which has ok meals).
Overall it was an ok place to stay in.Whether i'd stay again I don't know I just didn't enjoy benidorm as a place/ probably would if it was a lads holiday certanly was plenty of pubs within 5mins walking.
I went there on 2 - 9 march 2004..
the place was lovely, the staff were polite and the rooms were nice! I would recommend it.
Flamingo playa appartments
Myself,partner and 9 year old went to benidirm on 7/02/03 for 2 weeks and overall it aws agreat holiday had 2 really hot days and spent them on benidorms two excellent beaches.benidorm is a place for anyone of any age with a wealth of things to do ans see. looking at previous reviews the flamigo player appartments are much improved.the appartment was clean and spacey with a nice balcony and we had clean linen twice a week.Very handy for getting round and they had a great kids club twice a day .the only downside is the entertainment which is really only any good if you are under 12 they really need to do something however in all good value and i would recomend Benidorm to anyone
My Time At The Flamingo Playa
Went to Benidorm Sept 2003, and was not really pleased about the place, The Bar Staff were great, The Entertainers and Reps were great, The Day reception staff were great, but the night security guards were a bit stroppy, we weren't allowed to talk in in the vicinity of the hotel on a night, they went as far as spraying us with CS gas one night, but all in all i didn't think much of the accomodation, the only good bit about it was sitting in the bar having a laugh with the bar staff and the entertainers and reps, the entertainment was good, but I preferred going out on a night, all in all I had a good holiday, I would go back to Benidorm again but not to the Flamingo Playa hotel
Lovede the sun
my family and i stayed at the flamingo playa ,,,and it was our first trip abroad,,,the rooms were basic but catererd for our needs.we enjoyed it but there wasnt much for the kids except the pool,,,the entertainment was ok but not brilliant and we didnt no we would be sharing a pool with a bunch of drunken louts all day who thought it would be good to play in the pool at 4 in the morning and sleep all day in the pool,,i would go back to benodorm no problem but dont think i will stay at the flamingo playa again
Excelent for familys
booked a last minute holiday so did not know what hotel we were staying in, we were so pleased it has friendly staff ,agreat pool,great entertainment for all ages,close to shops sea etc and above all it was clean we will definatly go back.

We biked up to Altea old town to see the church with blue tiled roof. Beautiful from the outside but not so good inside. The surrounding streets were full of artisan shops and a few small cafe's with excellent coffee. Bikes down again and along the front for lunch but found ...
... entertainment" afterwards. We've met a marvelous singer, Sarah Jane Morris who performed for us along with another guest Annette Brown who is a musician, she plays the trumpet. They did several songs, very nice. And Lars was convinced to do his special version of the Swedish Chef. Annette even made a chef's hat for him. It was a fun evening.
It has been a great week for recharging the batteries, relaxing and filling our tummies with really healthy food.
It is almost two months since I was hanging about in Dorset waiting to get the van fixed, and now I am hanging about in Spain for the same reason. The Truma Boiler company in Germany have appeared to be helpful and efficient and after I contacted them on Friday 13th , the following Monday they shipped the parts out to Spain (I should have known that date wouldn't be auspicious). The plan was that I would have the parts fitted on Friday ...

Having said all these positive things about the site, it got very cold at night and the electric functions of my boiler were definitely not working. My proof of this was that I put the central heating on low overnight using the electric and in the morning the van was freezing and ...
There are lots of English retirees here which means that there are lots of clubs for my grandparents to join and English restaurants and bars for around so we have had traditional English food here as well as Spanish food. Its a very nice place with perfect sunny weather but its very quiet in winter and there are lots of things closed. Tomorrow morning we have to leave for London, it doesn't seem like we have been here long enough to already be leaving again!
