I stayed at the Flamingo beach together with my boyfriend from 23-27 December 2014. The hotel is very beautiful,with very helpful staff. Even with the safety advisory, the hotel was fully booked, and there was reasonable security surveillance around the hotel and the general Shanzu area. Men, please carry a pair of linen trousers as the managment insists on men... More

This resort is on one of the most beautiful beaches, natural reserve, very impressive and quiet. Lovely place, far from the dirty Mombasa. The hotel is fine and food and service is good. Pool is perfect and some people instead of complaining should stay home and not going to Africa!

Emrald Flamingo Beach resort is a beautiful paradise with a German touch of authenticity and a world of its own. The rooms especially the Deluxe rooms are a small paradise and give you the feeling of home away from home. The meals is a mixture of Swahili, African and continental cuisine. The hotel has got a big swimming and if... More

I had a room with a beautiful view of the ocean and this alone makes me a little bias towards this hotel since I spent most of my time starring out my window. The one thing that brings this hotel down is the old finishes and a need for a serious refurb. Otherwise, the friendly staff and the location of... More

I had hoped to write this review earlier, but better late than never! My husband and I stayed at the hotel 9-10 May. It was a birthday treat for my husband and I am very happy I settled on this hotel. The staff were incredibly welcoming and accommodating of my - very many :-) - requests prior to the trip.... More

I really enjoyed my recent stay at the Flamingo Beach Resort. The rooms were amazing as we had a very good view. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to enjoy all the facilities as we were travelling around the county. The breakfast and dinner buffets were good. Ample amounts and variety. The Mandazi in the morning was just incredible.... More

The hotel is absolutely beautiful inside out. the ambiance is excellent ,the true feeling of a holiday. the rooms are clean, the employees are very kind and warm from the pool guy to the cab guy. The food is just over the top, not to mention the bar inside a cave and the cliff which is so so unbelievably beautiful.... More
