... until than as the Russians where stronger certainly in the second half. The Belgians are now qualified for the 8th of the final as well as the Dutch team. As Michel had threatened us that we would drink only coca cola light all night if Belgium would lose, we were happy when he opened the bottle of champagne that we offered them from France to celebrate. Michel had bought a beautiful leg of Spanish ham ...
It's about a 20minute drive from our villa to the local beach of Arenal in Javea, once you arrive your greeted with lovely white golden sand, clear turquoise water and a beach front promenade full of small shops and restaurants. After being dropped down by bobby we found our way to a small stretch of the beach relatively clear ...
... then trying to converse in spanish to Josh, in a creepy whisper in your ear kinda way. I don't think he was actually gay but he definitely succeeded in making the meal a little awkward. After the meal he also continued to fill up shots for bobby to drink, in what seemed like an attempt to get him to sleep. All very odd. Once the bill was paid we headed back and caught some much needed sleep ready for the next ...
I'll be the first to admit, sometimes you just need a break from it all. Tash and I have been working very hard lately and coupled with other life events, we really felt like we needed a break. Happily, Tash's father had invited us along with her brother away for a vacation in Spain, arranged for his birthday by his wife. The journey there was frankly a little arduous, Tash had the unenviable task of driving us up ...
My original plans were to leave Javea after three days (on Friday) but because the bike took a while to get everything done, we still hadn´t posted back the stuff we won´t need anymore and also we booked a snorkelling trip for this day. I didn´t mind staying in Javea for longer, it was good to recover from all the crazy travelling and the cold and also to enjoy the wonderful villa and the beautiful Javea. We meet at the dive shop for the snorkelling tour at 1pm, ...

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).
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.
