“Great at first, but not so great!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

Lovely surrounds, good service but things went missing from our room. No proof, but we know what happened.

pinkflamingogo, Manager at Pink Flamingo, responded to this review, 19 April 2012
In regards to the collected coral from the beach, that was lost or misplaced we would like to respond that we never saw or took the keepsakes from the guests room and it was also not broken into. Our resort is very safe, secure and a happy place, and we wonder how the guests knew 'it was stolen'? not lost or misplaced? Nobody (apart from management) had access to the guests room, and we are sure nothing was stolen/taken from the room. This whole accusation over lost pieces of coral is outrageous. Coral and shells can be found freely everywhere in our area, even though to collect anything in National Parks is not allowed and illegal! We are very upset by this accusation and hope any review reader will realise how absurd and unreal this is.

Stayed for 5 nights and could have easily stayed longer! This little cosy resort is like a tropical hideaway and it's perfect for couples who want a relaxing retreat away from screaming kids and the masses. The rooms have everything you need for a comfortable stay and the outdoor bath and private yard is a winner for a quiet night in gazing at the stars. Gigi and Andrea are very welcoming and this gives the place a great vibe. The pool is lovely and surrounded by very well kept gardens and it never felt too busy as there are only 10 or so rooms. I thoroughly recommend a stay here and will definitely be back soon!

Spent 4 nights at the Pink Flamingo and the experience was excellent.
Staff are very nice and helpful. The room was clean, very nice, and had a private courtyard. The grounds are lush and private, and the onsite laundry was a bonus. Birds and wildlife are all around, and the resident cats are worth asking about. We were fortunate to stay there during the end of the travel season (March), and had the place to ourselves.
Wonderful place to stay, and the perfect distance from Port Douglas.

Room Tip: Pick rooms toward the rear, and back from the pool where it will be quieter.

Convenient and relaxing. i live in Cairns so a trip to port Douglas is always a bit of a mini holiday. The choice for this holiday break was a good one. one of the few places that takes dogs so was willing to give it a try. Great accommodation and attention to detail. The dog loved it and was provided with a blanket, towell and bath. Have recommended Pink Flamingo to friends already.

It's a shame other establishments in Port don't offer accommadation for pets. Very important for people from Cairns and a definite reason to select Flamingo.

Stayed 4 nights at the Pink Flamingo. Beautiful gardens and pool area. Laundry facilities in detached building on grounds. Bicycles for hire on site and would be a quick ride to the center of Port Douglas. Spacious accomodations. Considering the high humidity, there weren't hardly any mosquitos, but you may want to bring some spray. Lots of birds flying about in the gardens and be sure to watch for the nightly migration of fruit bats overhead at dusk. They're all over Queensland, at least on the coast, and are really cool to see! Say "Hi" to Kinky the cat too!
