Flamingo Beach Resort details

This All Inclusive property fires on all cylinders. For starters, it offers up three big swimming pools. There’s an activity pool, a quiet pool and a separate one for children. They’re all bordered by roomy sun terraces, dotted with loungers and parasols. Plus, you’ll find a poolside bar-come-café out here. The whole scene is framed by landscaped gardens.

On the food and drink front, the emphasis is on big, global buffets served up in the main restaurant. There’s an Italian restaurant, too, and, if you fancy eating out, meanwhile, it’s around a 15-minute walk to the heart of Playa Blanca. Even closer is the pretty local harbour. It’s about five minutes away on foot, and a great spot for fresh seafood.

Back at the hotel, spacious suites are kitted out in soft pastel tones. Well-equipped kitchenettes complete with microwaves, fridges and kettles come as standard, as do private balconies or terraces. TVs and air-conditioning provide the in-room extras. Plus, if you opt to stay in a select room, you’ll get a DVD player and access to the movie library in reception.

Lastly, when it comes to entertainment, this place really comes into its own with a great mix of events on offer from noon ‘til nightfall.

Playa Blanca guide

The quiet holiday resort of Playa Blanca is situated in the very south of the island and is named after the surrounding white sandy beaches. The resort has undergone a lot of construction and upgrading in the last few years, which, contrary to expectation hasn't ruined the Spanish charm of this resort but rather added to it by giving tourists an extensive array of villas holiday accommodation to choose from in Playa Blanca. Despite the extensive growth over the last few years the old fishing village, in the centre, retains its charm and has escaped much of the commercialism that has blighted larger resorts. There is a good selection of cafés, bars and restaurants in Playa Blanca along the promenade but the main attractions are the nearby beaches; some of the best beaches in the Canary Islands are just four miles (six km) away at Papagayo. The resort is mainly geared for families and couples - those wanting a more lively nightlife will need to make the 18-mile (29km) journey to Puerto del Carmen.

Activities

There are lots of things to do in Playa del Blanca, not least of which is sunning yourself on one of the picturesque beaches. Holidaymakers wanting to enjoy watersports in Playa Blanca should head to the beach where activities can be organised by the beachfront and boat trips leave regularly for the Papagayo beaches - the views of the beautiful coastline are stunning and boats can drop visitors off at the beach to be picked up by a later cruise. The Timanfaya National Park is only ten miles (16km) away where visitors can admire the dramatic volcanic scenery and even ride a camel. Ferries depart regularly from the harbour to the nearby island of Fuerteventura, just six miles (10km) away.

Restaurants

La Bocaina and Casa Pedro top the list of highly recommended restaurants in Playa Blanca. While La Cocina de Colacho, El Horno de la Aguela and Romantica all garner rave reviews from tourists and locals alike. There's a huge choice of eateries on the main promenade, which at night bustles with activity. The promenade overlooks the beach and harbour and the lights of Fuerteventura can be seen on the horizon. Restaurants serve anything from Chinese, Indian or Italian to seafood and local dishes. Some restaurants will not accept credit cards.

Nightlife

Most holiday resorts are known for their nightlife, but the nightlife in Playa Blanca is fairly limited, the entertainment is restricted to the shows organised by the hotels. There is a kids disco but those after something hardcore will need to head to Costa Teguise or Puerto del Carmen, half an hour away by car.

Shopping

There are good supermarkets in Playa Blanca that sell all the well-known brands and holidaymakers will find that although the choice is not as good as in Puerto del Carmen, there are a fair number of electrical duty-free stores and other shops geared at tourists near the harbour. For couture shopping most tourists in Playa Blanca head to the stylish Marina Rubicon. It is possible to get good bargains in the electrical duty-free stores, but shoppers should remember that they can't take purchases back to the shop once they've left the island. They should check everything works and that all batteries, cables and plugs are included; that there is a European guarantee, not an Asian one; and that all electrical items have a CE stamp. The busy Sunday Market in Teguise is worth the journey for the most dedicated shoppers; as well as the usual tourist souvenirs and holiday gifts, a variety of locally produced goods are on sale, from pottery to tablecloths.

Negatives

Whilst water is safe for cleaning teeth and washing food, it is very high in mineral content and can cause bad stomachs. Bottled water should be used for drinking. There is a lot of development going on all over Playa Blanca, check if there is a building site outside your accommodation before booking. The resort is particularly popular with Germans; much of the entertainment is geared for them and they get up early in the morning to reserve the sun beds!
