“A delightful escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

We are "Frequent Flamingos" Terry, myself and Nellie the dog- we all feel so welcome with each vist and nothing ever too much trouble, Gigi and Andrea even supersized the dogs "welcome pack" to suit our supersize dog!(which was so thoughtful).
The villas are delightful, the pool inviting and hard to drag yourself away from, the gardens immaculate and the whole environment is safe and secure.
I highly recommend the Pink Flamingo to everyone who wants to have a great place stay close to everything but secluded, relaxing and tropical.
We could not imagine staying anywhere else in Port.

We have stayed at Pink Flamingo 8 times and love it more and more each and every time. There is nothing to fault and everything to praise. It's your own perfect piece of paradise while your there. Gigi and Andrea are so generous and everything is open and honest. We trust them with the keys to our room. We recently had the pleasure of joining the frequent flamingo club and will be back again very soon :)

Highly recommended peaceful and relaxing place to stay!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Room number 6 is our favourite :)

We stayed at the Pink Flamingo after visiting The Sea Temple in Port Douglas. Sea Temple was under a client's expense, so we needed a cheaper place to stay on our own dime. Pink Flamingo was worth every penny. I wish I had budgeted to stay in their villas - they are fantastic! As it was we stayed in one of the small studios. They are very basic rooms with very nice touches. Basic bed, but excellent linens. What I liked best was all the attention to the small creative flairs everywhere. And the hosts are so kind and helpful! They helped me book some fun tours: a helicopter ride to a small sandy cay for brunch and snorkeling. Amazing!

I would give Pink Flamingo the highest rating, except that I reserve that rating for the very high-end places such as a Four Seasons Resort. There is no comparison - The Pink Flamingo is small and intimate and fits a smaller budget. I would be so very happy to stay there anytime!

Room Tip: Get a villa if you can swing it. Not much more money but well worth the money.

We've stayed at Pink Flamingo at least 5 times over the last 3 years and each time it was a great experience. The rooms and backyards are funky, the gardens gorgeous, the pool clean with lovely surrounds. And it's great that you can have your wonderfully well behaved dog with you (in some rooms). Gigi and Andrea are perfect hosts! I do not believe for one minute that they 'stole' corals from a room. Corals are everywhere - why would they bother taking them from a room!

we have been to the Pink Flamingo twice (so far) and just LOVE it. The rooms are bright and cheerful, the gardens lush, the pool inviting, the bar always stocked, and the managers absolutely AWESOME. They are welcoming, knowledgeable and dedicated to their work and their guests. There are many places on our bucket list, but the Pink Flamingo is so attractive we keep going back there instead. Highly recommend as a Port Douglas accomodation.

Pink Flamingo deserves a rave review! We stay there every year, twice a year, and wouldn't go anywhere else in Port Douglas. The beautiful tropical grounds and pool area are perfect, quiet, and so relaxing, and the hospitality is magnificent. It's also safe and secure, we've never had any problem with anything and the management are so friendly - they'd do anything for you, and are the lovliest people. Thanks Pink Flamingo - you rock!

Room Tip: They all great, not 6-star but perfectly adequate for a relaxing time in the tropics. They all have...

We booked this place by the internet and my husband was a bit worried that it was displayed on a website to be a resort for gay and lesbian travellers... which we were not... However as the pictures and the reviews seemed to be good we decided to book anyway and to see how things would turn out. It was our honeymoon trip and this has been the ONLY place were pleople did something special for us. We have very much appreciated this and enjoyed the bottle of champagne that was provided for free! Think of anything you wish for and it was available: some fruit, repellent for musquito's, a cooler, matches .... For us it was a bit like heaven; staying in a very cosy place with an outside bath and surrounded by a lovely garden and sounds of nature. We did not went out eating and prefered to cook ourselves at our studio and have a romantic dinner outside. We also have received very well advise for our snorkling adventure, we are still very pleased that we asked you in advance and had a good trip!
