There are over 40 hotels in Port Douglas to choose from. We were after a hotel/resort that was luxurious yet good value. We stumbled upon the Pink Flamingo having read the reviews on Tripadvisor.
The hotel is located slightly out of the city center (about a 5 minute drive or a half an hour walk), which considering the lack of overnight parking in the city center may be a good thing. We were instantly charmed by the boutique nature of the hotel on check-in. The owner Gigi was friendly as she personally showed us the rooms. We booked a Private Garden Villa complete with an outdoor shower.
The room is comfortable with all the modern amenities you would expect. It even came with a kitchen which was great for making breakfast. The TV however only provided a few channels but we choose from a vast DVD collection. The best thing about this hotel is the personal nature of the service, from friendly tips on where to go, what to do and bookings for our reef tours. This boutique hotel cannot be compared to major resorts up to the road with infinity swimming pools and tennis courts but what it lacks, it makes it up in character and service. Recommend for couples who want a good value for their stay in Port Douglas.
