We spent 4 nights at Flamingo bay. We were met by Conrad already at arrival and he carried our bags to reception and later to our room. What awesome service,because no porter was insight. We were met every morning with a warm welcome and a smile. This could not last,i told my partner but instead it just got better. After... More

We came here for drinks and lunch as I remembered this place as spectacular and we thought of maybe spending a night or 2 here. I'm glad we came for lunch first, as the most welcoming person was the security guard at the parking area (He was really nice), everyone else made you feel unwelcome. You could see the manager...

The website should be updated!!! The harsh sun has faded the wood, but I believe maintenance will start after the holiday season. Food was good, and dinners were great. The waiters need training, but Management (Conrad) was very friendly and went out of his way to help us out of a sticky situation. It is quiet and one must do... More

We spent our honeymoon here during December 2014 and was looking forward to the idyllic pictures seen on their website of a 4-star resort. Sadly it was no more than a run-down at best 3-star resort. Seems no maintenance is being done. The woodwork is faded, the pool needs resurfacing, our bungalow steps and handrail down to the water missing,... More

I spent a week here in November 2014, and though the setting is nice my trip was overshadowed by the complete lack of proactive management. I had wrongly assumed that once I had arrived the management and staff would try to cater to the guest's needs, but essentially all the managers did was offer small talk and platitudes. More on...

Overall a very pleasant and memorable experience. Staff friendly and helpful. Evening dinners fantastic. Service although friendly was a wee bit erratic at times. The accommodation was good and most interesting with the water lapping around it especially at high tide.

We would just like to say what a wonderful experience. Great food and even better service. We were treated like royalty and felt like part off the family. a Family that will be missed. Special thank you to Conrad that went out off his way to make us feel at home. We will most certainly return.

A lovely resort with great staff, super accommodation, delicious food and amazing wildlife. We were diving at the nearby Barra Lodge, owned by the same company, so were transferred every morning. We had a water bungalow towards the right hand side (18) so had a great view of the sunset every evening. The ones to the left would not have... More

A fascinating collection of stilt bungalows with connecting boardwalks. Watching the tide ebb and flow was amazing.... endless wildlife interest and lovely sunsets. The set menu for dinner was good, but perhaps not enough choice to suit individual taste. The rooms were clean and mostly in good condition... just a few niggles that could have been easily rectified. We would... More

Hi Devon Really great to hear you like Flamingo bay, it is very special being on the edge of mangrove and view of the bay which gives it that uniqueness.

This was an amazing place. The whole time we were there it felt surreal. The staff were wonderful and very helpful especially the hotel manager who would do anything to help anyone! The food was fantastic and there were so many activities to do other than lay by the pool and swim. We would love to come back.
