Few times stayed at Flamingo Hotel and due to sea view room is sold out, booked this "Rainbow". First is my reservation booked is under smoking room, during check in brief again and the room front office agent given is... More

Stayed here twice in 3 months for business. Loved the kitchen counter style table which is very flexible for me to work on my projects in the room. A big balcony to relax and enjoy the sea breeze and hill view too. Nice breakfast, but try to get there early for good seats and more food.

Your standard four star hotel amenity wise that's actually a three star hotel quality wise. The wifi is slow. Breakfast is okay. On a budget I MIGHT stay here again. The rooms are relatively big. But... Really nothing special, nothing disappointing either.

Nice hotel with a decent beach and close to the city. Rooms dated and need better maintenance. Air-conditioning struggles to keep up with the heat and humidity. TV is grainy. Wifi slow and patchy. Difficult to get desired temperature for Shower. Otherwise room amenities are satisfactory and sleep comfortable. Breakfast is good with choice of 'western' and Malaysian style food.... More

I love being at the seashore because of strong winds and many visitors from abroad so friendly. The food served is also fascinate visitors to come later after this. The surrounding circumstances are also able to attract foreign tourists to come

Rainbow paradise has a nice view, wide room specially if you are with children! after a whole day and night out in a city of joy, this hotel can add real excitement to your journey. They have yummy breakfasts, wonderful poolside, sea-side view from hotel lobby as well. Believe me, a mid minded traveler would love to live here at... More

I would say that this resort is an old resort but the view from my room was excellent. The wind from the sea will tell you that the hotel and the sea is only a few meters away. The variety of food for breakfast was not to my expectation but it was alright. You may try the Lebanese food at... More
