“Great character, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

This place is amazing! Dollar wise, the rates are embarrassingly low, in fact, for what you receive. If you are stressed from travelling when you arrive, you won't be for long, as everything has been designed for the maximum comfort and well being of the guest. The beautiful tropical gardens, the pool, the private garden to each room. This place has colour and character, something that is lacking in the big resorts. As a guest, you are a special person, rather than just a room number, and Gigi went out of her way to ensure that we felt that this was so. We stayed in one of the studios, as we were going to be out and about during the day, and so it more than met our needs, and our expectations ~ however the garden villas would be absolutely wonderful for those looking for a romantic, or super pampered stay.

Room Tip: The place is so well designed so that no guest has reason to complain about the lack of comfort, pea...

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.

Room Tip: Go for the Garden Villa. There is breakfast so you would need to go to a local cafe or make it yours...

My wife and I stayed at the Pink Flamingo for a few nights as part of our honeymoon down under and we absolutely loved every minute of it. The resort is brilliant, with fantastic suites, great selection of things to do on days in, nice BBQ facilities that you can take to your room, and of course the location relative to the GBR and the Daintree. Gigi and Andrea are excellent hosts and were very accommodating, thus we could not have asked for a better place to stay in Port Douglas.

Everything is good about this place. The outdoor bath and shower is fantastic. The place is really well designed with no cars parked near the Villa accommodation. Gigi is helpful in a relaxed way without being intrusive. Everything is organised, well stocked, clean and tidy. Love the way the Villa's are designed and the comfy built in couch. We had the outdoor pool to ourselves, hired a bike and it's very close to town. A nice suprise was the free upgrade when we arrived, as they werent busy. Perfect after a day snorkling the reef.

Room Tip: Any of the Villa's are great.

Well what can I say that hasn't already been said about this fantastic resort. Do yourself a favor and enjoy a visit. Every detail has been thought of ....there are candles, bath salts, plunger coffee, bbq area stocked with sauces etc. Herbs growing in the garden for you to use. Also we were celebrating our honeymoon and we received a lovely note and bottle of wine. Can't wait to go back.

This place is quirky. The owners run it quite well. It's very clean and everything happens exactly as it's supposed to. They helped me choose and book my snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef, which was perfect (and incredible!). I rented a bike one day. That said, it's basically a cinder block room in the tropics. It's well appointed and managed. It has a room air conditioner. It also has a ceiling fan, which is nice. They thought of all the details. I could play my iphone, they left me beach towels, even some chocolate eggs for easter. Very nice but mostly because they run it so well.

Thank you for your review Ilena!
We just would like to point out the room type which you booked was our Garden Studio, these are located at the front of the resort (which we advertise) and more of a budget option (we only have 2 studio's). The Private Garden Villa's are our main rooms and those are spacious, private, open plan living all with nice garden views and large courtyard, quietly located away from the street. It is worthwhile to pay a little extra and stay in a villa for a perfect holiday experience!

A very special stay. Clean and very spacious apartment, and very well set out and you are in need of nothing , very well thought out and wonderful attention to detail. The girls are clearly passionate out the resort and make you feel at home and are happy to help with any of your needs. I would certainly recommend a stay at pink flamingo, very special.
