“Great Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Stayed here for christmas and I must say that this place was pretty good. Rooms were spacious and not cramped like a lot of those new places you stay.

It was also quirky and friendly. They gave a special touch with a card to help me celebrate the new year.

Definately go back - someday

Stayed December 2012, traveled solo

We always look forward to our breaks at the Pink Flamingo, we are made to feel so welcome.
The " Puppy Pack " is such a special touch, it sets the standard of care and attention to a whole new level, which continues throughout the resort. Our villa was as always beautifully presented from stepping through the wooden gates into the funky bright interior and exterior decor and the delightful private tropically landscaped garden complete with alfresco shower through to the main gardens and pool which was a delicious 31 degrees.
We have already booked our next escape and can't wait

Room Tip: All fabulous

We have stayed at the Pink Flamingo twice now and are looking forward to returing again. This is a quirky, relaxing and fun place to stay. The pool, bar and bbq area are well maintained and give it a more personal feel. We loved the outdoor shower and the kitchen amenities so you could cook at home. Gigi and Andrea were great hosts and more than willing to help you choose a tour that will suit your needs. If you are looking for a relaxing, clean and well priced place to stay close the everything in Port Douglas, then stay here. And there are no kids... so it's quiet. If you are looking for 5 star luxury, with very little character or fun... try something else.

Well presented, quirky, relaxing, fun, great place to rest. Loved the sandy poolside bar with fun things to play with, star sunnies, flower lai's....the privacy was excellent, so well laid out. Loved the outside bath/ shower in the courtyard, candelabra's in the garden....And those wonderful sounds in the trees of birds and wildlife...hmmm, bliss!

It was a return visit to the Pink Flamingo for us, as always it's the little touches that make this place special. The candles by the spa, a bottle of champagne in the fridge and not forgetting the mirror ball in the bar!

Sharon, who was filling in for regular managers Gigi and Andrea, even took the time to drive us into Cairns so we could spend the day at the cable skiing, having our arms ripped off and doing some spectacular face plants.

We were seriously in need of R&R and the Flamingo didn't disappoint. It's a gay friendly resort which met all our needs. We'll be back again next year!

We stayed for a week at Pink Flamingo. Gigi and Andrea are friendly and helpful. The villa was colourful, well stocked & very comfortable. It was wonderful to wake up every morning to the chirping of birds. Loved the pool - it was perfect to laze around. Would highly recommend Pink Flamingo for a quiet and relaxed holiday.

We recently spent four nights in a private villa (#4) at the Pink Flamingo Resort and would love to have spent longer. The staff have a wonderfully hands-off approach with an honour bar, help-yourself DVD and book library and everything you're likely to need an arms reach away. We never saw anyone else unless we went looking for them and it was a very peaceful, private experience. Plenty of wildlife to be found around the premises including bats, geckos, huntsmen (!!), cane toads and domestic cats to keep you on your toes at night - but nothing made it indoors. :)
The main swimming pool was just beautiful and just perfect for a midnight skinny-dip and a cocktail (apparently...), we spent almost three hours in there on the night we arrived and had it all to ourselves, didn't see anyone else in the pool for the whole stay. LOVED the outdoor bath/shower - there's nothing like a morning/afternoon/evening shower under the sun/stars or a relaxing soak with a book under the palm trees listening to the birds and topping up our tans with a beer - and all a relaxing 15 minute stroll from Macrossan Street or the beach.
We WILL be back. <3
