The Hotel Flamboyan/Caribe is situated overlooking the beach of Magaluf, the Flamboyan/Caribe offers a panoramic view of the sea. Extremely good facilities for families and couples alike. The resort of Magaluf is in the south of Majorca and is a lively and popular resort, particularly lively in high season. The hotel is located on an incline and are therefore unsuitable for guests with walking difficulties.

The hotel was in a great location right overlooking the beach. Excellent views from the bar terrace.Pool area nice. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms kept clean. Entertainment and food ok but nothing spectacular.

I have been in Magaluf once before with my 3 friends and we stayed in the Don Paco - which i would NOT recommend to anyone at all. The Flamboyan way better than what i expected. It is in a great location.
This was my first holiday abroad with my boyfriend and his first time being in magaluf. Both of us had a fabulous time.
As already mentioned - if you don't have a sea view then your not going to spend a lot of time in the room. we were on the first floor above the main entrance and although it was a bit noisy the first night - we didn't really notice anything after that.
A word to the wise though - although we requested a sea view when we booked we weren't given one and when we requested a move we were told it would cost us about £78 a week with an initial payment of £35. We didn't bother with it and to be truthful - you don't go on holiday to sit in your room - a good view is an added bonus.
The pool is a fair size and is cleaned daily. the pool bar is actually moor for the benefit of the beach as it is down 2 sets of stairs to the sea front.
The hotel is in a great location - not need to walk far to get a decent meal, go to the shop, get to the pub or have a day at the beach.
The food in the hotel isn't up to much. It is a self service buffet with lots of choices but you'll find that they have the same choices a few times a week. By the end of the second week we were going out for something. I would recommend the mexican to the right of the hotel gates. It's really nice.
What we did notice though was that when we were leaving (21st Sept) there seemed to be more and more other nationalities arriving. Apparently this is when people from the main land take their holidays (the Spanish Blackpool i heard it called).
Overall i would recommend it to anyone who asked but not as a 4* hotel maybe 3 pushing a 3+.

This was one of the first holidays in Spain where i thought we were treated like paying customers and not English cattle who dont really care where you accomodate them.
The Hotel Flamboyan is attached to the Caribe. We stayed in the Caribe which is a little more modern than the Flamboyan. Both hotels were lovely and spacious and the staff were freindly and polite. The rooms were very nice and airy and had lovely sea views of Magaluf bay.
The food was tasty both at breakfast and at Evening Dinner but it was a bit basic. It is difficult to suit everyones tastes but i loved the food.
The hotel itself is on the beach which is also very clean and tidy.
This Hotel would be perfect for couples and children and the elderly alike. I spoke to an elderly gentleman who had been returning to the Flamboyan for over 7 years so that speaks for itself.

The nightlife is great in this resort. Something for everyone. You will find your own personal favorite bar. My favorite bar was called Mambo's on the sea front. The food was great and the music was perfect. Chill out and enjoy!!!!
One thing that will anoy you if you are under 50 yrs old is the PR's to get you in their bars. I'm sure though that by the 2nd day of your holiday you will have worked out how to get rid of them in your own way.

Do not listen to people who say negative things about this Hotel or resort because it just is not true. I think these people forgot to RELAX and ENJOY their holiday. If you are about my age (31), you will love Magaluf and the Flamboyan and return again as i intend to next year.

This was a last minute 'bargain' holiday at half the brochure price (Hotel is in First Choice brochure). It is not a 4* hotel, rather a sound 3*. Location is close to discos / bars, but at the far end of Magaluff, at the Terronova end close to Palma Nova. We had a very good spacious, family room, with a fantastic view of the sea / beach. However, guests on the other side of the hotel had far less inspiring views, with much more noise and disturbance.
Food was good and the restaurant had excellent views of the sea. Service was slow.
Entertainment was twice weekly, during high season, and very limited. No children's entertainment, day or night.
The pool was poor with only 20-30 sunbeds - it was just as well that the beach was literally on the doorstep. The pool bar was down steps alongside the beach and resembles an unfinished 'shack'. Sea cleanliness was poor at this end of the bay.

Instant Holidays did their best to spoil our holiday by 1) not arranging our hotel transfer and 2) our hotel was full when we arrived! However when the following day we did get in our Hotel the sea View rooms were excellent value and as the week went on the food certainly improved, however Instants refusal to recompense us for the no show of our tranfer left a worse taste in the mouth than the local grub !! Resort was fine for all ages at this time of year and with Palma Nova just down the road plenty of variation at hand .
