I can't think of any good thing to say about this place. Stayed there for 3 nights. The list is as follows. 1. Bathroom smelled like bad cheese. 2. cockroaches in my bathroom! 3. the sink was clogged from the first night itself. had to scoop the water out for the other two nights. 4. the balcony looks like it...

Nice and clean hotel, food average and the breakfast restaurant was not managed by the hotel so the duty managers were not able to assist us on the poor quality of the food and forced us to pay for food that we couldn’t eat

Stayed one night as woman from UK travelling alone. Lovely welcome. Very helpful staff. Lots of room service choice. Room spotless. Wifi signal not great in room but good in public areas. Enjoyed watching the big monitor lizards swimming in the lake right in middle of city!

Before I came to Flamingo by the lake, I thought I had made some bad life choices. When I arrived to this cesspool, I realized choosing this hotel was by far the worst. Flamingo by the 'lake', excuse me, but that black puddle they call a lake has disease. It poses a threat to the people living nearby, and I... More

For a 3 and a half star hotel, I didn't expect to have a nice facility. In here, they have a lake with a nice romantic view that you can enjoy with your loved ones. Don't expect the room to be tip top though. Enough for a 3-1/2 star hotel. However, something can be done with the parking system. They... More

Not worth it for the price I paid for the room. The room was ok but the shower was not working with only scalding hot water coming out. The toilet flush wasn't working and had to resort to fixing it on my own. Wi-Fi access was given but wifi signal was almost non-existent. Had to resort to 3G connection. Breakfast... More

Hotel is good but little far from everything, which is good for me, I hate noise. Good for the price. Old but not bad rooms. The staff are very friendly. Breakfast is the only negative, nothing eatable except egg, cheese and sausage.
