Just back from Flamingo and loved the place....Really clean,Staff are really friendly, has a nice homely feel to it as there's so much entertainment during the day and at night that no-one really leaves the hotel.
Great location in centre of town, 5-10 min walk from beach.
Only gave it 9/10 as the food isn't that great, there is something you will like and there's chips every night lol
Going back in September as it really is a great hotel!

The location was excellent, from malaga airport its 5-10 minutes to the hotel. The hotel is right in the middle of town and is minutes from the beach. Alot of clubs, restuarants and bars minutes from the hotel and which was not noisey at night!

The rooms are VERY clean, but the maids do not speak much English. The air conditioning should be automatic instead of the card system.

I personally didn't enjoy the food, but they had a wide range of continental and international foods. Breakfast varied from toast to a full fried breakfast and fruit. Dinner was a variety from chips to curry to vegetables. Alot of space for sunbathing, relaxing around the pool. Daily and evening entertainment which was VERY entertaining and kept people that wanted to do ''get up and play'' amused. The mini disco for the children at night was entertaining, with a clown playing all your party disco songs, in English, Spanish and French.
Hotel staff were not very helpful, most of them spoke little English, apart from the bar staff. I would stay here again in the future. No doubts.

Decent staff. Nice room. Great location. Spoiled by very noisy and at times, abusive guests and reception staff who were just not interested when complaint made (shrug of shoulders). All inclusive drinking caused problems - poolside became a no go area -largely went unchecked

Our room was fantastic, a corner one so nearly double the size of normal rooms. Huge balcony, too. Food was plentiful and good, if you couldn't find something you liked then you're too picky to be going abroad! All in all we had a great time, just a shame about the other noisy Brits who have no regard for others when getting back to their rooms at all hours! By the way, they have started building opposite the Flamingo [swimming pool side] so you may get noise from that for the next few months.

Rooms seemed a little dated but they were clean and tidy. I found the bar staff and receptionist helpful. We went all inclusive. The food was okay. The whole place was reasonable given the price paid.

I found the receptionists to be very unhelpful and weren't interested in responding to my queries. I found there to be endemic sexism at the coffee bar where men would always be served before women regardless of who was in line. The food was plentiful but not at all nutritional or particularly nice to eat. The bar staff didn't speak English very well and weren't open to understanding me. The only best point of the stay were the maids who were friendly and helpful. I would not recommend this hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Roc Flamingo Hotel

OK for the price paid

from ALZI
Stayed here for 4 nights on a half board basis in early March got a good deal just over £100. Hotel is not far from main rail station which cost just over a euro from Malaga airport. My bus transfer did not turn up so I was glad of this option !! Taxi transfer to airport 15 euros.
Hotel check in was no frills but efficient however the same front desk chap was not very helpful when I tried to confirm an excursion booking with my own mobile phone. When I informed him I could not get through he did not offer to phone on my behalf using their phone - not good customer service!!
Room was clean enough but showing one or two signs of wear and tear eg part of ceiling uncovered. The shower was not that powerful and came out of position easily. Towels were a bit flimsy - one ripped with little effort. Only English TV channel was Sky News which got a bit wearing.
As others have said lifts were sluggish but better outside meal times. Food wasn't too bad - typical fare of soup, salads, rice, fish, pork etc - and some strange desserts. A nice touch was the free red wine, sangria, water with the evening meal - a lot of similar hotels will charge for just water. Dining room was pretty cramped and am afraid to say was every man for himself. I came back to my table about four times to find a couple of local pensioners sitting there even though were some available tables adjacent. Placing my meal ticket on my table did not even help. Only had breakfast a couple of times as I had to depart early on excursions - did not ask if they would cobble together a packed breakfast. Usual selection of bread, eggs ,beans, ham etc.
The entertainment seemed more geared towards the more mature customer though I did not sample it. Plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby as well as a good supermarket Eroski round the corner down from street level - handy for bottled water, snacks etc
All in all an average hotel which I used as a base and was acceptable for the price paid.

loved torremolinos shoppers paridise

from brayonie03
We stayed here from 14-26 Feb. Not as good as maybe others we have stayed at. The food was geared towards the Spanish and not all that warm.
The hotel itself was dated, and te entertainment was virtually non existant if you were british. It tended to be aimed at mainly spanish, who themselves caused more entertainment than the hotel especially when it came to moving chairs so they could see everything. The location was ideal for shopping if you like that sort of theing, which I did, and the hotel itself was very clean although the reception area had a funny smell about it. All in all not bad for what we paid, but have stayed at better for the same money. Dont think we will be going back.
Not very good for young children, nothing for them to do if the weather is not too clever.

Just Stayed One Night In This Canny Hotel

from rosshogarth
We stayed in this hotel for one night at the end of our holidays in October. The rooms were very spacious and clean and we had a family room with a full corner balcony. Not that this made any difference being at the back of the hotel. Staff were friendly. The hotel was full of elderly spanish people on their holidays. Breakfast was good and their was enough of it. Cant say much more as we only stayed for one night.

good hotel if you like something different

from WRIGHTFLYER
If you like everything totally British then stay away,this Hotel is frequented by lots of nationalities but mainly Spanish.The food is good and very varied with lots of it.The rooms are of good size very clean like all of this Hotel,the staff are helpful with speaking varying amounts of English and good local knowledge.The location is a 10 minute walk from the beach which involves steps but there are lifts which you have to pay for.The big plus though is the close distance about 5 minutes to the underground train station,bus station,the shopping centre and lots of local spanish bars/restaurants even nearer.

Flamingo - the only way to go and stay in Torremolinos!!!

from emeraldandscarlet
My partner and I have stayed at this wonderful hotel one week from December 21 to December 27. We arrived by plane and decided to take the train from Malaga International Airport to Torremolinos. Not being familiar with this city, the location of Flamingo hotel was perfect, just round the corner from the train station, walking distance even with some heavy luggage! No need for taxi!

Checking-in was accomplished by the staff in a very friendly, efficient manner.

We found our room furnished and decorated in a very refined, modern style, very spacious and comfy. The only surprise was that to keep the power turned on in the room, you must leave your key card in the slot on the wall by the front door. We didn't know so we had to ask the cleaning lady and she was helpful in explaining this detail to us.

The bathroom is very clean, excellent warm shower, towels changed daily if you just remember to leave dirty ones in the tub. The air-conditioning/heater in the room worked perfectly!

And what a magnificent, breathtaking sea view from the balcony!

We found a great deal for bed and breakfast and it was really worth it! The breakfast was ample, with hot eggs, bacon and sausages, as much fruit, yoghurt, toast, orange/pineapple juice and coffee as you like!

Rooms get cleaned by noon and after a hard night playing and partying, you can have a peaceful afternoon nap.

Though most hotel visitors at the time (Christmas holidays) were retired Spanish people, everyone was very polite, open-minded and friendly, the atmosphere at the hotel in general calm and relaxed.

They offered different entertainment each night of the week, from flamenco dance to theater and plays, but it was mainly targeted at the older audience.

We chose this hotel primarily based on it's location, and we were not disappointed! The famous gay district "La Nogalera" is just a block away, literally! We came back every night round 4am and the night clerk was always there to open the front door for us, smiling yet discrete.

Upon leaving, we forgot a rather expensive souvenir in our room and only realized it was missing when unpacking back home. We called "Flamingo" and to our astonishment and surpise, not only they found it, but they immediately sent it to us Express Mail free of charge! We know many hotels that wouldn't have been as honest and caring as to go this extra mile for their departed guests!

We definitely recommend this hotel and will book soon to stay there again!

Bottom Of The Scale

from mccann`s
we spent a week in this hotel from the 19-26 july weather was in the high 90s which was super. But the hotel itself is very out date`d in decor more of a 70s hotel. It is bang in the center of the town which is good for shopping and dinning which is a good thing as the food in the hotel is very poor some good bars about the area also.ITS about 1.5 miles walk to the beach BUT THIS IS OR VIEW ONLY SOME OTHERS MIGHT LIKE IT . HAPPY HOLS

A centrally placed Hotel

from stanlo
From Stan and Jean of County Durham.
December 30 2006

We have just returned from a stay at the Roc Flamingo Hotel in Torremolinos. We stayed over Christmas (19-28 Dec) and had booked room only. We were a little concerned about some of the reviews we had previously seen on this hotel but we needn't have worried.

Whilst the Hotel is basic, it was clean and tidy and the staff were friendly. Our room was clean tidy and warm. We say warm because we have experienced rooms elsewhere that are stark white and impersonal. Our room was in warm pastel colours and the heating, if desired, worked efficiently, which was a boon as the evenings could be chilly in December. The hotel is centrally placed for all amenities such as restaurants, shops and the beach is not far. The railway station is across the road and the buses operate on the roads nearby and the bus station is not far away giving access to all of the region. We would certainly use the hotel again. You get what you pay for and we believe the hotel was value for money and suited our purpose.

Our Holiday in The Roc Flamingo Torremolinos

from alison40
Very disappointed with our fully inclusive holiday. The food was terrible and for 1 week we paid £1045 for 2 adults and a 5 year old. We were very lucky not to end up with food poisoning as they put out food on the buffet which was on the previous days menu. I don't think anyone would enjoy sprouts for breakfast. We didn't have a decent nights sleep due to all the noise from other hotel guests. The rooms were very drab and the pool wasn't clean. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

staff very friendly

from kimfromplym
My fella,his 2 teenagers and myself spent 2 weeks at the roc flamingo.The rooms are very basic,if you want any extras. EG,fridge,kettle and such you have to rent them!The food wasnt all that great,but saying that there was lots of it.The lifts were a nightmare at meal times,so we walked 8 flights to go to eat. The enertainment was quite naff,there was a disco bar,but never a disco,the entertainment didnt start till gone 10 and finished around 11,11.30,bar closed at 12,a hotel that caters for the smaller children.The staff were very friendly and pleasant.A short walk to the beach took about 10 mins,the shops were very close. we did enjoy our hols cos we made our own entertainment and the beach was lovely,but i wouldnt stay in the hotel again.

All Inclusive (not!)

from Qchik
We booked last minute, and as we'd recently had an excellent All Inclusive holiday in Gran Canaria, decide to do the same here. Just me and my teenage daughter this time (Girls bonding week!)
We were ok with the room and tiny balcony. (8th floor) We could sit out - just - and enjoy the pool, sea, and construction site views. Yes, a new apartment block is going up just over the fence from the Flamingo. We specifically asked our travel agent about building work and were told there was none nearby....
Stillwe could drown out the noise with Eurosport - the only british channel.
Food is ok. Loads of fish and rice. Decent salads and pastas. And well cooked meats. Food was rarely warm, but there is a microwave! Choice of drinks with meals was limited, and we certainly didn't know you could order wine other than the red and Sangria . Our only real contact with waiters was as they cleared plates and tables.
Bar staff were pleasant if a bit slow. Tended to run out of glasses and ice, especially at the rush for "last orders" for all inclusive at 11pm, when the entertainment was still sometimes underway (poetic license on the use of "entertainment". Guests ARE the entertainment in the main, but there is the obligatory parrot show, and---Reptile show "This is a snake. Would you like to touch the snake? would you like to pay 10 Euros to have your picture taken with the snake?" you know how it goes.)
Any way, back to the bar for a minute. I don't think that 11am till 11pm ir reasonable for all inclusive, and I don't mean I wanted loads of booze. Outwith these hours we even had to buy water for goodness sake. The woman on door duty in the restaurant wouldn't let you leave with any water or juice for the poolside after breakfast, so you had to buy it or wait till 11am. Ice cream was free for 1hour in the late afternoon ( in 32 degrees), and the only snack available to guests was a ham and cheese sandwich. We are not fussy eaters, but I think this was really pretty poor. We did pay £430 each for the week
All in all, we had a good time, but if this had been my first experience of All Inc, it would have been a poor one.
Location wise, the Hotel is good for shops, bars and restaurants but a fair hike to the beach front and uphill on the way back.
If you're looking for a chilled out break and get a good price on this hotel, I'm sure you'd enjoy it fine. But it just wasn't for us, and I wouldn't go back or recommend it - Sorreee
