Room was fine, beautiful view and good balcony but was old and tired. Good value for money however did not use the pool as there were too many kids in... More

With minimum staffs at the reception counter (only opened up for 2 ques) and check in process took around 10 mins per person and I was the 5th person! Imagine how long do we need to wait for our turn? Furthermore... More

This was my second visit to Flamingo and I must say the renovations has totally transformed the beautiful hotel to a very corporate and concrete place. The services has gone down, breakfast menu is very limited and the rooms are not kept that well like before. Sad to see a good hotel's service detoriating like this.

As our flight was arriving late we didn't want to turn up on our Aunties door at midnight. So thought we would book a night at the Flamingo hotel close by.
