Visited this place during Eid-al-adha. Our main purpose of visit was the Crab hunting package that Flamingo provides. For 1200 per couple including breakfast and dinner, it was quite a nice deal. The restaurant's a-la-carte menu is adventurous. Try out the Sherry masala and the fried Crab.
The crab hunting experience was amazing. After getting a little balanced out at sea, and with a little concentrations you can catch quite a few of these poor crustaceans.
The room was alright. But definitely not 4-star as it says to be.
The staff are courteous, but overworked. I recommend you hire more people. The receptionists even extended our check-out time on request.
The garden smells! They have a septic tank inside the garden itself for waste treatment which makes the whole area smell like a garbage van!
Avoid the the crab soup. Ideally, where the meat in a soup should be shell-less or boneless, here it was not. Plus, it was simply a crab piece put in a corn soup.
The breakfast was alright. But the dinner buffet is not.
