Came here on a family/business holiday 2013. Had large spacious adjoining rooms with balconies. Great acoustics. We had privacy but appreciated having the option of leaving the doors open during the day. I enjoyed the pool view. Pool and bar was great. Access is given to the beach, which is nice. Check-in was a little slow. Lobby area seemed recently... More

A nice hotel to stay with courteous reception staff. We were staying in a 3 bedrooms suite, the only suite among the hotels around that area that can accommodate the whole family members in one suite. The suite is facing directly to the sea, we enjoy the scenery very much. The beach is just beside the resort and it offers... More

Our first stay at Flamingo was in March in a Seaview Room & we returned again last week. This time we stayed in a 2 bedroom suite on the 14th floor. Check in is a little slow compared with other hotels. The lobby & bar renovations have now been completed and the area is nice. Wifi still doesn't work in... More

Hotel is in the north of Penang in Tanjung Bungah, so its quite a trek from the airport. Penang has pretty bad traffic issues these days so factor this into your visit, especially if you intend to visit Georgetown etc. Hotel makes the most of its great views. Rooms are good, but a little tired and dated. Have looked at... More

Firstly the hotel is very nice - the pool area and reception are good. No idea why the prices of food and drink are so high just go to the mini mart across the road. Our sea view was amazing and room itself was great, plus the breakfast was good. The problem came with the aircon, safe and hot water... More

The hotel is in the best location, with great facilities, beach, water activities, swimming pool and the food was fine enough. If any other time I plan to go back to penang, I'd definitely choose this Hotel. The room quality and hospitality was so also great. Highly recommended:)

I really hope to never came back in this smelly-dirty hotel. The service is so poor and as soon as I opened the door- oh jesus- what a smell. The room looks like close for 100 years. The bathroom is really dirty rich of ants, all towels maybe WERE white but not now. Really bad experience. I only hope to... More

Basic hotel, no air conditioning in the reception. Long wait to check in, not a welcoming experience after a long hot journey. Service was poor and the breakfast choice limited. Room was basic but sea view was great. Wifi connection was rubbish.
