I stayed here during Christmas and New Year (accommodation and breakfast) while volunteer working during the days at the nearby Lioness Cubs Orphanage. This was my 5th visit to Kenya. I thought that the staff was very friendly and helpful, good food and very nice pool area with a lovely palm-fringed beach just in front of the property. The room... More

We´ve been there on august 2008. Lots of beach hotels were closed due to some political issues after general elections. Many of staff were not get paided, so, we even get the chance to pay directly to the staff some marvellous sea food at a better prize. At least, we knew that they will get anithing to eat at the...

I stayed at this hotel several years running booking through African Safari club. As I understand it, the hotel was closed. Looking at the review, it is now open. I would love to visit it again as the position of the hotel is amazing. How do I book?

I have stayed at Flamingo Beach Hotel a number of times and while there were obviously some problems generally value for money was very good. I was sorry the hotel was closed but have heard that it has been bought by another company and is being renovated. I had heard that it was due to re-open November 2011. Does anyone... More

Ive been prompted to write a review after watching the BBC Tourism and the Trade programme: Stacey Dooley investigates Kenya. My family stayed at the Flamingo hotel in August of last year, and had an amazing holiday. The pool and rooms were amazing, the beach was gorgeous and it felt like an exotic paradise. The food was amazing, and safari... More

We stayed at this hotel in February 2011. I was worried about the poor reviews given on trip advisor but decided that for the price we paid (£599) it was worth a gamble! I can only assume bad reviews came from people who had paid a lot more and were expecting a 5* holiday so as long as long as... More
