Even though I didn't like port douglas that much, I really enjoyed my staying at pink flamingo.
Walking distance to the town center, the rooms were big and clean.
The owners were really nice and even emailed me a few days before my arrival to check if we wanted help any help in planning any day trip while in Port Douglas; really appreciated.

This is the perfect place to stay in Port Douglas! Everyone and everything here is so comfortable and low-stress yet still feels like you are indulging. Unfortunately Gigi and Andrea were away during our stay but Mimi was wonderfully helpful and attentive! You have privacy if you want privacy but opportunities to socialize here as well. We cannot say enough good things about the Pink Flamingo and have recommended it to our friends and family. We will definitely be back!

We had such a relaxing stay at the Pink Flamingo. Gigi was more than willing to arrange transfers for us even before we arrived in Australia. With a gorgeous outdoor pool with honour bar we could relax and sip cold brewski's in the sun. Gigi kindly arranged for us to go snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef with a relaxing outdoor massage in the comfort of your own apartment - who needs a 'Sounds of the Forest' cd when you have the local wildlife soundtracking your massage.
Couldn't ask for more.
Top tip - hire bikes to get to and from town.

We had a great week staying in Port Douglas at Pink Flamingo. The property is small and quiet which was exactly what we were looking for. The room was spacious, well kept, clean and very private. Gigi was super helpful with reservations and even went out of her way to help us cancel an event that we could no longer make it to. Outdoor heated pool was great and open 24 hours. I would go for a nightly swim under the stars all by myself...it was great. Honor bar, pool table, grills to use, bikes for hire. There wasn't anything that I wanted or needed that Pink Flamingo was not able to provide. The room had a kitchen, stove, microwave and fridge so it was nice to save money and make a couple of meals instead of eating out every day. Walk into town was 15 minutes which we did a couple of times a day. The beach was 10 min walk away. Liquor store was a 5 min walk away. We will for sure stay here again if we ever make it back to Port Douglas!!

We just had a blissful week at the Pink Flamingo, enjoying the privacy and beautiful facilities, especially the outdoor shower and courtyard. The brand new pool table is great! This was our second stay and we were made to feel very welcome both times. Gigi and Andrea are the perfect hosts - never intrusive but always happy to suggest activities, recommend restaurants or help with bookings. This is a highly recommendable resort for travellers looking for peace and quiet away from the crowds.

Very nice place. A little bit of a walk to town, but we did it every day, so it's not too daunting. Nice pool, beautiful and spacious rooms. Gigi set us up with tours and restaurant reservations before we arrived. Honor bar at the pool. Grills available for use. Bikes for hire. Friendly to all! A great value.

We found this resort via booking.com and just loved the descriptions and pictures. Location was ideal, being out of the town centre but only by about a 20 minute walk or 3 minute drive! The resort is gay/lesbian-friendly and so what?
More importantly, this is a universally friendly, colourful and relaxing place to stay, with nice people in charge, who professionally look after their guests' interests.
Yes, the decor is funky - but this means funky-nice rather than strident. We enjoyed the designs, colours, flowers and facilities (free laundry, relaxing pool and honour-bar, etc, etc).
The Pink Flamingo is also great value for money! We will return to Port Douglas and stay there again.

Room Tip: Go for the big bed!
