Flamingo Hotel is a budget hotel suitable for family and large groups. Many of the visitors are on Group tours from Europe and appear to stay for 1 or more months, to escape the European winters.
The Hotel is noisy, as the rooms have hard floors, doors banging, noisy, happy tourists without any consideration for others, but thats holidays!
The Restaurant, at breakfast, struggle to handle the large crouds, and the management should take more interest in seeing that platters are re-filled quickly and not left empty.
Seafood specialty night, good value for money. Unable to get an Iced-tea at the Restaurant after a hot day out and had to go to the Hotel next door, (Paradise Beach) where we were served quickly, even though that section was closed.Later found Ice Tea at the pool bar, just outside the Restaurant, which was made in the Restaurant, strange!
Swimming pool clean, though the furniture could do with an up-date.
Beach lounges grabed by the European visitors first thing, and belongings left, even when they were not there.The Hotel should moniter this, so others can take advantage of the beach, should they wish.
Staff helpful and the rooms were kept clean by the room stewards.
Rooms have little storage space, cupboards with no shelves so unusable.
Bus stop outside Hotel which will take you into Penang for 2 ringitts each way, good value, or use the Hop-On bus at cost..
