Sea And Lake Apartments
situated inland of the Flamingo Beach hotel. The hotel has it’s own bar and pool area and is ideal for family’s.
Location: ** Offset from the approach but still close by. Also ideal for a family holiday
Spotting: *** Ask for a room in the new block facing the airport and you will get good views towards the airport. Reports also indicate that the manager allows rooftop access of the new block for even better views. Room 231 is now confirmed to be the best room for views at these apartments. From this room you can see all of the way down the approach to touchdown. You can also see traffic lining up on runway 22 threshold so little will be missed. Traffic can be read off through binoculars. Room 232 would also offer views of the approach but not the actual runway.
Photos: ** Great landing shots can be taken from room 231 with between a 200-300 lens. By the afternoon the sun is behind you giving great opportunities. The excellent McKenzie beach is only a 5 minute walk away for further photo opportunities. It is around a 20 minute walk to the airport perimeter fence. Trip report credit J.Bates.
Value: ** Prices from £60 per room.
Book: Hotel Only can be booked through AGODA
