Pink Flamingo
Ranked #10 of 42 Hotels in Port Douglas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Have just had 4 great days at the Pink Flamingo. Our unit was spacious consisting of a generous courtyard which included an outdoor shower and tub. Inside was a dining/ kitchen area with full kitchen incl microwave, new fridge/freezer and hot plates. Tv, DVD, CD player and a big comfy bench seat for watching tv. Then a separate bedroom, generous in size and toilet/shower bathroom off that. Overhead fans and AC kept the place well ventilated.
Although not new, the accomm was all in very good condition and well cleaned. Brightly painted with a fresh decor, the place was very easy to relax in and around. A lot of attention has been paid to those little things that make your stay as enjoyable as possible like cans of mozzie spray, well equipped kitchen and actually sharp cutting knives. Sounds silly but indicates the level of attention to detail here to make everything work for an enjoyable stay.
Our hosts were very friendly and helpful in offering advice for local attractions and recommendations.
The site has a huge heated outdoor pool, surrounded by immaculate and beautiful tropical gardens. It was a delight being woken by the many bird varieties that live here too.
Just a 5 min walk to Carlito Pizzas, a bottle store and Chinese restaurant. Coffee can be bought at the cake shop next to these. 20 min walk to PD town shops/ bars, and just 10 min walk to famous 4 mile beach, so great location all round.
Would recommend the PF to fellow travellers if you want a quality and quiet change from the hussle and bussle of hotels and noisy kids in gorgeous tropical bush surrounding.

It is refreshing to stay at a hotel that is unique in appearance. The bright colours and quirky furnishings are fun and welcoming. The hotel itself is about a 20 minute walk from Port Douglas centre and just a short walk to the beach.

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...

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!
