Playa Flamingo Beach Apartment
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Overlooking the sea, this first (top) floor apartment is in a privileged location - 1 minute stroll away from sandy beach and easy walking distance to all amenities including restaurants, bars, shops and pool. Ideal for children too!! No car needed! The apartment is almost overlooking the best beach 'in town', and is situated about 10mins walk to the town centre, which is ideal for an evening stroll along the promenade. Enjoy the sunsets over Fuerteventura from your balcony, 4 SUN LOUNGERS provided and can be used on the balcony as can table and chairs! Being SOUTH FACING you get the sun most of the day. Many of our guests have said how much they enjoy just relaxing on the balcony, listening to and watching the sea. This is a privately owned apartment sharing with hotel complex. New doors and windows for 2009 - all very fresh looking. Enhanced facilities from April 2010 under First Choice/TUI management. You can book all inclusive at reception. (Or directly but then you cannot be sure where your apartment will be, and some have no sea views).
This is a very cosy and desirable, sought after property that sleeps up to 4 adults, or 2A + 3children, (one twin bedded room and one double ikea pull out sofa bed, one mobile Z bed). The property has a really good feel to it - stress and hassle free, allowing you to really enjoy your holiday! It has a nicely equipped kitchen within the lounge /dining room area, but only a small oven within a microwave, and a small freezer compartment. No dishwasher or washing machine, but laundrette on site. There is a buffet meal service on site - 9 euros for breakfast, 19 euros for dinner and breakfast combined. There is a small balcony off the bedroom. Ideal for anyone looking for all year round sun by the sea. Panoramic views. Very pleasant location, with a safe, homely and community feel - and relaxing too, albeit not altogether quiet as there is a children's play area nearby, so plenty of holiday atmosphere. This is unlike many apartments in other areas (some are really quiet, like ghost towns away from the sea, and with few or no facilities!). Cot hire and high chair hire available from reception. Families and couples alike enjoy this apartment.

The apartment is within holiday grounds that are well kept and landscaped, with a tropical feel. Lots of Palm trees. The terrace over looking the sea and Fuerteventura, and the beach to the side. 4 comfortable sun loungers, and table and chairs for 4.
There are numerous facilities, amenities as well as an excursion office - all on site. There is a playground and swimming pool entertainment, and a quieter pool too. There is a supermarket on site, as well as 3 restaurants.

Plenty of parking outside hotel - free - 50 m walk to apartment. Free car parking outside complex, but 50m walk from there to apartment. This resort can be quite busy at times, so ideal if you want holiday atmosphere, but not so much if you want a really quiet time, with no one around you. Our properties 52062 and 38418 and 52067 and 52063 offer quiet and exclusive locations.

The Lanzarote region
Playa Blanca has a lovely homely feel, and not over commercialised and has character, Lanzarote is said to be one of the most unusual and beautiful of the Canary Islands. It lies just 96 Km off the west coast of Africa and 700 km from the south west of the Spanish peninsula.
This means you can expect temperatures of 20C or more any time of the year and Lanzarote benefits from more days of sunshine and fewer days of rain compared to any of the other islands. The higher temperatures in the Summer are eased by the cool breeze making it ideal for sunbathing, sporting activities and exploring the many areas of culture by day, and in the evening there are many bars and restaurants perfect for relaxing over a leisurely meal.
The island is particularly famous for its 'lunar' landscapes and consists of almost 300 volcanoes. You can see fire and eat naturally heated cuisine! Or just keep warm by the volcanic surfaces. There are many areas to explore and from the volcanic mountains the views are spectacular. The rocky coastlines are broken up by the beautiful golden sandy beaches and the different greenery and agriculture. The Papagayo beaches are protected, and with dream like white sands and quite wavy too. No bars or any kind of commercialism. (Walkable from apartment along coastline 1-1.5 hours)
Massive Sunday market at inland town of Teguise on a Sunday.
Very well kept island, clean and tidy and minimal crime.. very pleasant holiday feel.
Papagayo Beaches are some of the best in the canaries. Lovely beach walks. See the fire in the mountains too.
The Playa Flamingo complex offers a choice of 3 pools, a kids play area, mature gardens, a pool bar and entertainment in the evenings. This is shared with First Choice. The nearby beach is family friendly with a gently sloping sandy beach - sunloungers to hire. The centre of Playa Blanca is just a gentle 15 minute stroll along the promenade.
This apartment is ideal for couples or families looking for a 'tropical' location next to the beach.

"Just The Ticket"
Just what we were after - warm sunshine, relaxing location - hired car from airport for the week - roads excellent, appartment easy to find. Appartment comfortable with excellent sea views and gorgeous sunsets from balcony, calm golden sandy bay straight down from appartment. Couple of mins from local shops and restaurants - many more along sea front. Paved promenade stretches for miles in both directions, easy walking/jogging. Free wi-fi in Flamingo Beach Resort foyer.

"Schönes Apartment mit Traumblick in All inclusive Anlage"
Bisher keine deutschen Gästen, deswegen der Kommentar in Deutsch.
Das Apartment befindet sich mitten in einer All inclusiv Anlage (Nordotel, TUI Management Flamingo Beach) mit überwiegend englischen und skandinavischen Gästen.
Für unseren 12 jährigen Sohn die ideale Gelegenheit Englisch zu sprechen, er hat auch schnell Freunde gefunden.
Das Apartment befindet sich direkt am Pool und am Kinderspielplatz, inmitten der Anlage.
Das Apartment hat ein Schlafzimmer, großes Wohnzimmer mit integrierter Küche und ein großes Badezimmer mit Badewanne. Im Wohnzimmer sind 2 bequeme Schlafsofas vorhanden, zusätzlich steht ein Klappbett zur Verfügung. Für bis zu 4 Personen bequem, für 2 Erw. und bis zu 2 Kinder sicher ideal, da im Wohnbereich kein Schrank zur Verfügung steht. Der Balkon hat Tisch und Stühle, sowie 4 Liegestühle und ist ein herrlicher Platz (Sonne den ganzen Tag, keinen Schatten!) mit Traumblick nach Fuerteventura.
All Incl. ist für 32€ pro Erw. und 16€ für Kinder zubuchbar.
Wir haben jedoch die Lokale in der Umgebung (sehr zu empfehlen ist das Asian Restaurant /Steak House direkt in der Anlage) sehr genossen.
Für unseren Geschmack ist die Poolanlage sehr schön gestaltet, jedoch alles sehr beengt und laut (viele Kinder), so dass wir lieber am Strand gebadet hatten. Die Playa Flamingo ist erheblich Ebbe und Flut unterlegen, so dass der Strand teilweise etwas steinig ist. Das Wasser ist herrlich und Schwimmen durch die großen Wellenbrecher gefahrlos möglich. Strand ist in wenigen Schritten erreicht.
2 Supermärkte direkt an der Anlage, morgens ab 8:00 Uhr frisches Brot.
Herrliche Uferpromenade vom Leuchtturm fast zu den Papagayen Stränden, wir genossen die langen Spaziergänge und am Abend den Bummel nach Playa Blanca (ca. 20 Min. zu Fuß).
Nur 4*, da wir im Schlafzimmer das Rauschen des Poolfilters hörten und sich der Kinderspielplatz (Kindergeschrei bis ca. 24:00 Uhr) direkt vor dem Apartment befinden. Es waren jedoch auch in Deuschland und England noch Ferien!!
Spitzen Betreuung durch den Eigentümer Hr. West und tel., sehr freundlicher Kontakt mit der Apartmentbetreuung Christin. Wir konnten nach Absprache auch länger im Apartment bleiben, da unser Flug erst am Abend ging.
Alles in allem (trotz wenig Sonne, jedoch herrlichen Temperaturen) ein toller Urlaub.
Vielen Dank von Fam. Bühner mit Oma aus Bad Bocklet (Germany, Deutschland)

"better than average"
Transfer booked with booking agent but driver dropped us at wrong location and we were struggling to find complex but for the help of a passer by. Happy enough with the Apartment, Clean, Tidy and ever… More
Great to have 4 stars in every category, thanks! 3 stars overall? Unfortunate start with taxi company, wonder which taxi agent was used? Seems driver didnt understand the (english) directions sent - Flamingo is well known! Really glad holiday worked out well. It's a 15 min stroll along promenade to main town, although Flamingo Beach 100m away is considered best of the town beaches. Views are better being higher up, but guess it's a matter of preference. Most importantly however, sounds like holiday was enjoyed :)
