“Decent but could be better”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

My family of five and another family of friend just stayed at this place. This resort was more or less only option available for two big families around this Christmas time. So we took a chance and booked it through Agoda, although it was a bit pricey side. Over all, it was a good stay. The resort is quite new and very spacious with a lot of open and green spaces. Can be nice for families with little kids who enjoy such spacious grass areas. It has 2 nice pools on each side of 2 bungalow areas. The bungalows are very spacious and clean. Wi-Fi wasn't working properly at the bungalow areas the whole time we stayed, causing some inconveniences. It worked only at the restaurant area. Cable TV in the room was nice. Free Breakfast was average. We ate dinner one evening, and it was so-so, considering the relatively high price. The French manager is working hard to run this place. Its location which is right on the main road is good or bad depending on how one may look at it. It was convenient for us, as we could walk down to the Sailing Club one day and the Crab market the other. One of the negative points was the wrong calculation of food bill at checking out. If I didn't catch it, I would have paid for the meals we didn't order... Le Flamboyant Resort is a decent place and has a lot of potential to be better. To me, it is at a crossroad; that is, if keeping improving (quality and detail of services), it can become a reputable resort in Kep. But if not, I'm afraid it may go down as "overpriced and a bit ordinary" as the previous reviewer described. For I think the competition is on among the resorts in Kep.

This is our second time here. Came here 2 years ago. It has got lot bigger as a hotel. Staff friendly. Rooms cleanish, breakfast not bad. Beds comfortable. We were comparing with last time we were here and it did not stack up quite as well as the previous time. It has lost some its charm by getting bigger. Two pools was nice but the resort lacks something that made it special last time.
A bit overpriced but that can be said for a lot of the accommodation in these tourist places in Cambodia.
Watch out for the overpriced tuk tuks. They are starting to take the micky out of the tourists on prices.
Would I stay here again. Not sure but that could also be said for Kep. Take liberties with the tourists and they don't come back

Room Tip: Take a superior room in the old section much more private

Le Flamboyant is a great resort with very nice bungalows with much space and two pools. The staff is very welcoming and I spent plenty of time having chats with them. The location is great as it is close to the center and one can walk back to the hotel in the evening. I would recommend this resort to anyone going to Kep.

We travelled as a group of 20+ and so I was a little concerned having read previous reviews about slow service. I needn't have been concerned - Franck and his staff were incredibly attentive. My room was cleaned before I'd finished breakfast, drinks and restaurant meals were prompt. My only criticism on the slow service front was that breakfast hot items were a bit slow to come out, and when they did, they were in small quantities that were snapped up quickly. But it really wasn't a big deal. I was more than happy to enjoy a cup of good coffee and the scenery while I waited.

Rooms are set around a pool, with larger bungalow style rooms around another pool. Great backdrop - really enjoyed sitting on my verandah looking at the mountains.

Good location across the road from the Sailing Club (great cocktails, good food), and walking distance to the Crab Market (a number of restaurants).

Can't speak highly enough of Franck for his attentive management of our large group. He really was everywhere, doing everything. Highly recommend Le Flamboyant for anyone heading to Kep.

Room Tip: All rooms are great since they surround the pools in a semi-circle layout. You can't get a bad...

A very homely place , clean, modern and friendly
Good food
Central
Good views
The hotel is new and still being completed so in time , it will have far more facilities. It has two swimming pools and pool side decking. It has an outdoor eating area with good choice of food and buffet breakfast.
The staff are very friendly a and helpful. The rooms are tropical in design and have good facilities and toiletries.
The internet is available free but does drop out.
The eftpos machine is a bit temperamental

This bungalow based resort near the sailing club is a pleasure.

We've hads extremely comfortable rooms, great pools, terrific breakfast, pleasant freindly and wecoming service and all at a modest price. The rooms have lovely betters beds, great air on and large showers. There is good wifi and tv.

Whilst some earlier reviews have mentioned the fact the green is not fully grown, it's because, it's still growing. Actually it's lovely and will not doubt be even more lovely when fully grown.

Thanks guys, you've done a great job.

We arrived and were welocmed by the manager who personally took our bags to our room. This was so different to the last few weeks of being snapped at at reception to provide passports and then the demand of a credit card or even a deposit. The room was sweet, the pool fine, the breakfast OK. The grounds were not spectacular, but where we stayed was rather new.
In the morning we went down to the crab market and bought a few kilos of mud crab, and took them back to the resort. The manager provided us with free baguettes and a crab claw cracker - no cost, no problem. A very relaxing place to stay.
