We have finally arrived at our destination and are now enjoying an evening on the terrace in Casa Verde! So far we have settled in, unpacked, spotted some geckos and mountain goats and began to think about our exciting plans for the next fortnight! Tomorrow we are all looking forward to starting off our sun tans in the sun of ...
... us) right by the beach alongside a boardwalk. A great location slightly marred by the continual presence of the looky-looky men touting fake Ray Ban sunglasses and other stuff. These guys must have really bad memories because you'd say no to their offer and seconds later they'd ask again! Once again the weather was incredibly hot so it was a relief to finish lunch and get ...
Another hot sunny day started with the, by now, customary freshly squeezed orange juice to accompany a healthy breakfast of Greek yoghurt and cherries. Ok, plus a croissant or two. We headed in Xabia, a fairly large town with a long, deep beach that, as this is now high season, was pretty crowded. A few weeks ago it was more or less empty. After drinks at one of the many bars and restaurants along the promenade we headed off to the quieter 'private' beach we went to ...
Nice slow start to the day. Freshly squeezed orange juice made from local oranges with fresh mango and pineapple, with croissant, jam and coffee. Heaven! Shortly after we headed to a local bodega to taste some wine. Then had a coffee in the pretty vine covered garden of a local restaurant. I do like Spanish coffee. Back to Casa Cronk to pack a picnic then off to their 'private' beach ...
... and at times large schools of well sized fish.
Our days were spent swimming and snorkelling in the Med, enjoying long walks along the beach and around Ifach rock. We explored the quaint streets that wrapped around the hillside and meandered the tiny streets of the old town admiring the murals. To top it off we even got to indulge another of our passions with some kayaking time.
The promenade was bursting with inviting bars and restaurants so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marconfort Benidorm Suites
5 star service at 3 star hotel !
Spent 1 week at the Flamingo and had a really good time. Despite the name this is a proper hotel, so dont be worried. Very clean hotel, all staff very very friendly and genuine. Food first rate, the best weve had abroad ! Snacks and drinks all day till mid-night if you are all inclusive (well recommended) All rooms have lounge area with tv, seperate kitchen area with hob and fridge, bathroom and bedroom. Air con aint gonna freeze you but its better than nothing, remove your key card from your key ring and leave it in the slot by the door to keep the aircon running while you are out and leave your curtains closed all day as the sun is right in all rooms all day. Nice big double width balconys to all rooms also, great for sitting and admiring the Manhattan style skyline at sunset. Lovely swimming pool though bit noisy when busy. If you value a prime spot for your sun lounger get down to join the q at about 8.30am and wait for the doors to the pool terrace to be unlocked and join the sprint !!!! All the sunbeds are stacked at 8pm nightly which is good. Only saw one cockroach in a corridor during whole stay. Adult entertainment isnt exactly Las Vegas but by then you should be well oiled on the free hooch to even care. Hotel is about 10 minute walk down gently sloping road to beach. Best bars are along seafront, try The Guiness Bar for a top night with live music. Enjoy (-:
Just returned having spent a week at this hotel. We are a family two adults 2 girls aged 14 and 16
and we all enjoyed it. Food was good and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff.
The apartments were cleaned daily and towels and bedding changed daily as well
The entainment was ok and the two entertainment girls gave 100% all the time.
I would recomend this hotel to anybody young or old single or with a family.
The only downside was the slight incline back up the hotel was hard going in the heat
Can't be beat
This is the best 3* hotel we have ever stayed in. The hotel is kept ultra clean ( the cleaners are still working at 8-30 p.m.) The pool is clean and healthy, staff very friendly, entertainment varied from karaoke to comedians, illusionists and hypnotists, and thats just on the outside area. Inside there is disco and duo singing. Quizzes, bingo , daytime activities, Adult t.v. room, childrens t.v. room, games rooms, and room for everybody around the pool. Internet cafe, daily papers at reception, vending machines for out of hours snacks/drinks. This is the only hotel we have stayed in that has a full sunday roast as good as england. The food is delicious, plentiful and varied. One of the receptionists is from Kings Lynn and one of the chefs is an ex marine from Portsmouth. Book in you will enjoy !
The best of the best!!
This place is just fab!! nice clean accomadation, v friendly staff, clean safe pool, just perfect, inact going back this year!! all I can say is "BOOK IT NOW!!!"
What can we say absoutely brill best hotel in benidorm
We have stayed at the flamingo twice recently once in summer and once in winter, we think it's a brilliant hotel which cannot be faulted on anything, we enjoy benidorm and have visited on many occasions and stayed in various accommodations, but this hotel is the best there is and we would not stay anywhere else in benidorm now.
We were there in feb 2004 and hope to return in oct 04
The best in the world
the flamingo hotel offers good entaintement for the young and old ie: saunas, swimming pools
it was the best hotel i have ever been to.
Loved It Best Holiday Ever!!
Its the best holiday i have been on yet! the entertainment is brilliant and all the staff and waiters are really friendly. The beach is close and the pool is very nice. Also the rooms are good and the food is too.
I went to the Flamingo Bendidorm about a year ago and my parents are trying to save up some more money so we can go again this year because it was so excellent. I loved it! The food was superb and the appartments were spacious, they were nothing you would expect for a holiday. I had just so much fun! I recommend this holiday for everyone!
Had a great time. the hotel was lovely and the rooms were spacious and kept clean daily. the food was good and was available all day, which was great. the barmen were very entertaining and they were the highlight of the hotel, so if you see, thomas, maninolow, raya and alex say hi to them for me, oh, and ask raya to make you a coctail, he makes great ones, the best was called sex behind the bar. if you get a chance to stay there, then do it, but if your young go in june or july as i went in march and it was full of old people who named me the p*** head and the entertainers called me the nutter when i sang my kareoke.
looking forward to going back soon
Saving Hard To Go Back AGAIN
Went for a 'girlie' holiday with two of my sisters. We laughed and had fun from beginning to end of the holiday. Food was excellant, staff very very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Ideal location. About ten minutes walk to the beach and bars. About 20 minutes stagger back from the bars!!!! Close enough to shops, bars and beach but far enough if you want to get away from everything. Came home with post holiday blues. Decided to learn Spanish, saving hard to go back. I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF THE HOLIDAY.
