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. We have read about your issues with activities and are putting your feedback into action. Glad to hear Aldo helped you and he is spending more time on service training.... More

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.

Stunning location with the chalets positioned in the lake. Staff helpful and friendly and meals of good quality with large selection for breakfast and lunch. Dinners were set menus which may not suit all but each course offered 2 choices. The downside (and it was really disappointing) was the seeming lack of communication between Flamingo Bay and sister lodge Barra... More

We spent 5 nights in this resort and we had a really good time here. The staff was very helpful and were very committed to make our stay as pleasant as could be. Special credits for Aldo, Augusto and Francisco in this respect. The cottages are situated somewhat of shore and are build on wooden poles which is great fun... More

Have just stayed for 5 nights. We loved the over-water chalets and watching the tidal changes every day. The sunsets were absolutely beautiful. The staff were wonderful - particularly Francisco in the dining room. Food was plentiful and good quality - the soups were really good! We did quite a few of the activities - the ocean safari and quad... More

I stayed at the Flamingo Bay for 3 nights during August 2014. Firstly I want to say that the location is great. The rooms on stilts is very nice and different and I would have enjoyed myself thoroughly if it were not for the bad service and lack of maintenance. The room: Neither of the bedlamps worked. Two of the... More

I did not stay at the hotel but I went to Flamingo for an evening meal. The hotel is basically built on stilts over a lagoon so to get around the hotel you walk on quaint wooden walkways. I had dinner and it consisted of a traditional Mozambican fish soup, the whole family enjoyed including the kids, an appetizer, in... More
