It's a really great spot and we got a great deal but the service is absolutely lost, the majority of the staff is trying but management is lacking some authority. The wine is overpriced and they serve way to lityle (3 zips for 28MYR) The beach has to be cleaned on a daily base and there can be so much... More

We are quite a regular at Flamingo Hotel. In this year alone I've bring my family twice to the hotel. because we have always enjoyed our stay here. However the breakfast buffet that we had the last time we're there is very disappointing. Choices of food are very unappealing and the sambal for nasi lemak is terrible. Tasted as if... More

We stayed here for four nights but were disappointed from the beginning firstly by our room, very tired looking and dirty. The beach itself is not much but the view from our room was fabulous, I would Recommend a Seaview room. Breakfast caters for locals not westerners, so no real variety there! If you are looking for other restaurants in... More

When I was planning my escape to Penang, I know what I wanted, a nice beachfront hotel with a quite beach so I could just laydown under the sun and enjoying my book. That was exactly what I got from this hotel. The room itself was nice, complimentary drinks, complete toileteries, comfy bed, balcony. Breakfast was ok too. Overall, this... More

Situated right on the beach, this hotel makes a statement as soon as you arrive. Great service and spacious rooms make you feel like you have spent more money than you actually have. A pool is made available as well as the beach which has equipment such as jet skis available for hire. Breakfast is can be paid for on... More

We spent 3 nights here while looking around George Town. The hotel is 17 storeys high so there are great views over the sea. We were on the 13th floor facing east. We could see the sea from our full size window but a western facing room would be better. The room was 'huge'. A king bed and 40" TV,... More

Firstly,the Internet access is really very very poor. This require to be upgraded unlike what I experienced with other beach hotels in Penang. Secondly, the breakfast food (compulsory in your package booking) are the same for the whole week and don't you think you should look at various local hawker food Penang famous for to add on. Thirdly, the three... More

Family getaway 27-29 April. Booked 3 bedroom suite. Decent amenities and really nice view. Staff were helpful. Not much activity on the beach but my daughter really had fun so it was ok. Breakfast food was ok. Recommended for families.
