We selected this hotel as it was half the price of places in Batu Feringhi but it had beach access, pool and other facilities. The reviews online were a little patchy but we found the place to be efficient and clean. We were checked in by helpful staff, offered lots of extra information and we found our room to be well kept and clean throughout our stay.
The pool was good, access to the beach was easy and it was a fairly relaxed time. I would advise not eating too often in their kitchens - the food was so-so at best. The breakfast was included in the package but suffered from lack of thought. The cereals were all honey or sugar covered, the hot selections were swimming in oil or coconut milk and would make for a tough start to the day! We dined there once in the evening and found it to be acceptable. There are two restaurants directly opposite that we though we'd try but never made it past the Indian place! Fabulous selection, price, quality and service.
The Flamingo did run a shuttle bus up to Batu Feringhi night market that we used. It wasn't well publicised but only took about 10 people and needed to be booked early. Having said that, it was free and arrived and left on time!!!
If we were going back, we'd definitely stay here again.More
