I would not recommend this tourist bunker. The rooms are okay, quite spacey and clean. The personnel is nice, but understaffed. The breakfast room is far too crowded. I normally want to enjoy a calm, relaxing breakfast to start the day. Here however, you have to fight for the cuttlery, tables and dishes, have to queue for eggs and wait... More

My stay at Flamingo by the Beach hotel wasn't the first time. It was my second time I think. This second time of staying at the hotel was pretty decent and not close to satisfaction. The room has good view and I stayed at the 16th floor. The room was decent. One thing my mom pointed out was the water... More

The hotels location is a bit out of the way - 30 minutes by taxi from the airport, and 20 to the town. This was ideal for me as I didn't want to be close to the bar strip but people wanting more nightlife should avoid. It is located right on the beach which is great, but the beach itself... More

We recently stayed here for a week, the day before we check out, we pre-booked and pre-paid the taxi through the travel desk at the hotel lobby for airport transfer. They said the taxi will be at the hotel at 5 am to take us to the airport. Next morning, no taxi waiting at the lobby. At 0515 am, we... More

The location is ok at the beach near to the town but only one life is working and very boring breakfast So crowded in the swimming pool and closed for wedding reception on one of the evening. Very difficult to get the parking for the guest.

We stayed here for our last part of our honeymoon. We were excited to come to the beach and relax in a nice hotel. Unfortunately this wasn't the case. The hotel is tired and needs a very big upgrade done. The elevators are poor and only 2 of the 3 were working. Breakfast is ok but not of an average... More
