We had breakfast every day and found this very nice, We did have one or two evening meals but chose to eat out most nights so we could explore the area, however when we did eat dinner at the hotel the food was good although the variety could have been better..
The hotel is very well situated for shopping in Torromolinos town centre (my wife was pleased about this) the Bus station and Train station is very close and we suggest taking the bus to Marbella for a day trip as this was only a few euros and a very nice town to visit. The beach was about a 20 minute walk through the town and then down lots of steps (bit tiring walking back) and there are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby.
We did try out the entertainment for the Flamingo Show which was very good and the Bingo seemed popular but I would say the entertainment is more suited to older people not wanting to venture into town.
There is a computer with Internet access available at the hotel although its a bit pricey at 1 euro for only 12 minutes but ideal if you need your daily email fix.
The Pool is very nice with plenty of sunbeds although the surrounding sunbathing area a little tatty (mostly grass).
Overall we had a pleasant stay at the Flamingo Hotel and found it good value for money. Our only complaint was that the room had two single beds pushed together instead of a double and as a young married couple this was not ideal, however to be fair we didn't actually ask if there was a double bed room available..
If you are looking for a good value clean hotel situated in the heart of Torremolinos then the Flamingo is Ideal..

Overall the hotel is clean and well kept, has good if steep wheelchair access, only as far a poolbar entrance then one has to walk around 50 yards to the bar.
The food to my mind was good, well presented and fairly variable. In my opinion avoid the soup and potages, they are prepared from previous leftovers I believe (so did a chef on holiday)and are definately "IFFY"
The staff are pleasent helpful and very thin on the ground.
The animation entertainment throughout the day is ok, well planned and good fun.
In the evening it is fine on alternate nights typical hotel entertainment.
I would return again on a late package, avoiding the soup of course.

Hotel Flamingo Torremolinos is a reasonably priced 3 star Hotel situated in the very centre of Torromolinos only 2 minutes walk from the main square. The Hotel itself is of good quality with clean well equipped rooms complete with air conditioning, safe for hire and small balcony with just enough room to sit 2 chairs. There is a well maintained medium sized pool with grassed area adjoining the pool side with sun loungers for sunbathing, a good sized bar opens on to the pool side through patio type doors. At the end of the pool is an outside stage were daily and nightly entertainment is provided, daytime competitions such as keep fit, darts, skittles and even Spanish lessons can be entered by all with the nightly entertainment generally aimed at the younger end with mini disco, parrot show, flamenco dancing, etc. Worth having a relaxing drink beside the illuminated pool before heading off to the Torromelinos night life.
The dinning room is spacious with a good variety of food, breakfast is available from 7.30am till 10.00am which is good for the later riser and consists of juice, tea and coffee, cereal, cooked breakfast for those who like Spanish bacon, fried eggs are perfect, beans are average, a conveyor type toaster is on hand or there is always the continental style ham and cheese, fruit, etc. Evening meal is from 7.30pm to 9.30pm and again is varied with 2 soups (don't try the fish soup), quality meats, veg, pasta, chips, lasagne (beautiful) and a full salad selection. The afters are not so impressive with 3 types of small cakes, jelly, rice pudding, melon and pineapple with a small cheese selection, but all in all it was adequate for Spanish food but this is from somebody who will eat anything.

4 of our party spent a night in our rooms with sickness and diarrhoea, although to be fair this could have been a winter bug rather than the food but who knows!
The hotel was clean enough with the maids doing their best on a daily basis.
The staff were in no hurry to serve you at the bar even when not busy.
Entertainment was very poor and nothing for the kids to do at night.
The hotel was in a residential area and ideal if you like shopping, the beach was about 15 mins stroll down hill.

The room was large enough and clean. The bathroom could perhaps do with a refurbish but it was OK. The breakfasts were great, an anything and everything buffet.
Catering extensively for the British and their full english! We ate at the hotel one evening, wished we'd done it sooner, very good.
We went on a three night winter break and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, we'd certainly visit the Flamingo again.

The staff uniforms were not clean and very unhelpful. The location of the hotel was more residential than being in the holiday area of the town. The entertainment consisted of Spanish bingo and Spanish music thus creating no atmosphere for the British guests.
We decided to fly home after only 3 days as we were bored, hungry and disallusioned with this dreadful package holiday.

It had names etched onto the bed headboard and old furniture with the varnish peeling off, in general not a good start to the holiday'
torremilenos is in general a bit of a dirty place in the town area.
I would agree withT Paul of lincs with regards to the rest.
