There is a balcony and for our room it is facing diagonally to the sea. There is a medium size and a small size swimming... More

The room was spacious and could comfortably fit an extra bed without us falling all over each other. From our balcony, we had a lovely view of the ocean. But the good things stops there. The service was very poor. Staff were unfriendly and unprofessional. A serious incident was reported to the front desk during our stay and instead of... More

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
