We have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Flamingo after visiting Capetown (shark cage diving and the local tours) It was absolute bliss after the hectic and wonderful South African holiday. We were able to unwind fully, being treated like royalty by all staff. Our waiters, Alfeu (breakfast) and Remy (dinner) were attentive and efficient, both ensuring that we had special tables by the pool for our last meals. The food was delicious and the service absolutely 5* . Having read the previous reviews (an necessity when planning a holiday) we can only agree with the positive comments made. (It had been mentioned that there were no bathrobes - not any more!)
I also booked activities at the Barra lodge. Horse riding was fun and I was given Hotstuff - a nicely forward going beast! The dive centre was top notch and, as I had not dived for over 12 months, the instructors insisted I take the scuba review course. Nick ensured that I undertook every skill I had covered during my previous, initial training. Out in the sea, I was able to dive safely and see some very rare fish as well as the most enormous potato cod. The piece de resistance was snorkelling with a whale shark whilst out on an Ocean Safari on the last day. Thanks also to Drew, Ina and Dylan for their professionality and humour.
I would strongly recommend the Flamingo to anyone wanting to relax and be pampered.
