“Unexpected Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Great place to stay. Very Close to the main area of Port Douglas and a good walk. The rooms were very comfortable and very large with a nice patio with more space than we needed. Woul have been nice to have wifi in the rooms but was available in courtyard front area. Very quiet and relaxing. Honor system bar in pool area was cool. We did the breakfast baskets which were quite large and could easily been eaten over two days. Large kitchen too in room. Nice selection of wines to have delivered to room with great prices. The pics do not do justice to the niceness of this place

Room Tip: pay more for the suites if you are staying longer.

We stayed here with our beautiful Cavoodle-Oscar (woof woof), Gigi and Andrea were so friendly and we had a really peaceful stay. I am surprised the locals aren't made more aware of this amazing resort. Very private and well maintained. You can catch a bus into Port Douglas which is only minutes away every 15 minutes in and out, and take your pooch with you on the bus.

I am so surprised we found so many friendly wonderful people in Port Douglas and very dog friendly environment yet in Cairns good luck with finding any Pet Friendly accommodation at all.

Our advice is take the extra drive and relax in one of the most beautiful places Port Douglas has to offer. thanks again for welcoming our boy with his own blanket, towel, and bowl. He was even allowed inside the pool area not in the pool which is understandable. So he was always by our side.
I can't rate our stay high enough. By the way visit the surf club while you are there.
Thanks so much we will be back, sadly we couldn't get back to you in time for Easter visit.
Congratulations on such a great environment. Big thumbs up from us.

Room Tip: All rooms are equal and to have an honesty system for beers at the pool is a testament to Gigi and A...

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

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!
