“A beautiful weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

It was our second stay here. We love the extra touches like bicycles, a pool table, DVD library, plunger coffee, beach towels and sarongs. It's child free and the pool is slightly heated so there's nothing to do but relax. The mozzies were pretty bad outside our studio room but coils and repellant were supplied. Other hotels might be cheaper but you truly feel at peace and well looked after here. Minimum 2 nights stay.

Stayed May 2014, traveled as a couple

We can't wait to go back and stay here again! The Pink Flamingo has left a lasting impression with us - from the unique and luxurious accommodation to the impeccable customer service we received, this is the place you want to stay at in Port Douglas. Managers Gigi and Andrea had fantastic local knowledge and made us feel completely safe when Cyclone Ita came along to but a dampener on our holiday. Having a huge selection of free DVDs, stunning resort-style pool and a pool table to use at our leisure completed the package. Our villa was beautiful and comfortable and the outdoor bath (which came with bath salts, candles and mosquito coils) was a total treat. You could even wheel the TV over to the door on its trolley and watch movies from the bath.

Room Tip: Definitely go for a private villa with an outdoor bath.

It is an act of pure selflessness to rave about this place; the inclination is to say nothing and save it for one's self. The Pink Flamingo hits all the right notes: privacy, independence, availability, beauty, luxury, and respect. This is a truly special place and somehow I will figure out a way to go back,

This is a very quirky establishment, bright colours and feeling very much as if it had been carved out of the jungle. There was a beautiful swimming pool and the walk to your room involved passing concrete urns full of small fish whilst negotiating lizards and butterflies. Our room was very large with an ample bed and an internal shower that would have accommodated a small herd of wildebeest.

The current owners have obviously stuck to their principles and developed a very unique place to stay.

Both the beach and town are within walking distance, 20 mins to the town 10 to the beach. I would recommend the Chinese restaurant a few mins walk away generous, excellent quality food.

I liked the place my wife was unsure.

The receptionist was extremely helpful – faultless.

I would draw your attention that up until a few years ago this was a Gay & lesbian only establishment and is certainly still very popular with gays of all shapes and sizes. Canoodling males listening to Kylie by the pool may or may not be ‘your thing’ – so it’s wise to bear this in mind.

From the first moment I spoke to Marita on the phone I knew it was going to be great and it did not disappoint. She was so lovely, professional and helped me book great trips around port Douglas. I am already planning my next trip back and will definitely stay here again!! Thanks for a great vacation!!

We had a lovely stay at Pink Flamingo! Every little detail was attended to, from the bathrobes and sarongs, to the cute bathroom glass. We stayed in the single room which was fine for us, but would love to go back and stay in the garden rooms. Gigi and Andrea are wonderful. And a plus that it is kid free, makes for a relaxing stay.
