My family and I had high hopes for our stay here, having stayed next door (Rainbow Paradise Resort) just two months before. Both are well placed for access to Georgetown to the East, and Batu Ferringhi to the West. I thought we would be happier in the Flamingo, given the claim to "sleep four," but the room size was considerably... More

The room was clean but not spotless. The restaurant breakfast was great with good selectioin but very crowded at the weekends. However the a la carte in the evening wasn't great but ok. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The property gives me an 'aged' kind of feels. Very nice beach view, great place to relax and enjoy morning exercise Breakfast wasn't very tantalizing to my taste bud The location is a bit far from the general tourism spot (such as the mural painting @Georgetown, gurney and other malls). Might be bit inconvenient for those who wishes to go... More

This hotel is not really for overseas tourists who are used to clean and quiet hotel rooms. This hotel is buzzing with locals and their children. Expect a lot of noise as all floors are tiled, there are large spaces under doors and the windows whistle in the breeze. Bathroom has not been cleaned thoroughly since the hotel was built... More

This hotel has a great location in Penang. The breakfast is amazing and you will enjoy the beach and pool view, but the rooms can use some renovations. The staff was very friendly and offered excellent customer services. Right across the street from the hotel there is an amazing Indian Restaurant.

Names like "Flamingo" were once popular in the 70s and 80s, and this place feels like it's still in that era. The lobby and website are the only updates; the elevator is so creaky that I seriously had safety concerns taking it. Rooms are clean but Spartan with signs of wear and tear; my sink had no stopper in it.... More

The rooms are clean, big but a little old fasioned. The houskeeping is good, the breakfast is good, lunch also, the boy's behind the counters who make the food great. The pool is very clean, and the hotel has a stairs to the beach. During the time we were there, there were lots and lots of groups from China, so... More

Very comfortable and clean room, unfortunately we had a leaking air conditioner, but as soon as we mentioned they relocated us. The lifts were a bit scary, you have 5 seconds to get in or out, which became a bit of a game for us all. They stopped on the weekend for half hour, the hotel was full, we were... More
