Flamingo By The Beach Penang3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Located right besides the beach, and there are many restaurants around that area. Beach is clean, but sea water is not. Kinda normal in West Coast Malaysia. Facilities at the beach stopped at 7pm. 3 rooms for Family Suite. Rooms are spacious and clean, every room has its own balcony and bathroom. Good for 6-9 ppl. No shoes rack, might stink the living room. Forgot to provide towel at first, but received them right after requested. Hotel staffs are OK.
I booked room at the Flamingo Hotel on sunday. There room was so beautiful and tidy. My luggage also arrived on time. The views was majestic, at the front balcony, i can see all the buildings of penang and at the back balcony, i can see the blue ocean! There hotel also have a swimming pool that close to the beach so i can easily choose wether to swim in the sea or by the pool. A really good hotel and suitable with the price it offered.
If you pay for "better" rooms, you get rooms at higher floors and get to enjoy good scenery. If you are like me and got a room at discounted price, well no view... just go out and walk, eat, and sleep when you come back. I stayed at 2nd floor. Furnitures are a bit old though... like the walls need some repainting, lights shouldn't be a mix of white and yellow (a hotel room should have yellow lights), there are some old stain at bathroom mirror etc. But i had a good sleep and a good shower (no bathtub). So this hotel is "on point", but can be improved further.
This is our 3rd stay in the same hotel suite with 3 bedrooms (only one per floor facing the pool and beach). This time I realized the common areas been painted and spruced up however the rooms looks the same. However the hotel can be spruced up further as it needs a do over as it is very old. The car park is something that can be improved further with lifts etc. It is very difficult to load things into the car as the space in the driveway at the lobby is limited and used up for reserved parking so there is minimum space at the lobby entrance to load/unload baggage. The bellboy service was not good. We were the only guest there at he time of arrival and we had to wait for 5 minutes before someone turned up with a trolley but on departure the bellboys arrived just afew minutes after we requested some help. We went with a party of 9 and we were comfortable in room as it had 3 rooms and 3 baths. We had a good time in the pool (was clean) and the beach.
Decent room, bit old and damp smell, My room came with good view facong ocean Wuite a big pool, no kids play area, only a small corner with 2 swings. Amenities are ver bad, bring your own bath gel and shampoo please. Ridiculous breakfast deal, booked a 2 rooms unit, breakfast only for 3 adults and 1 kid . Also room card will only provide 2, not a single extra. Breakfast selection is ok with local and international selection. Seat are very limited for restaurant. Worst thing : Parking lot is daym difficult to find
We spend 2 days in Flamingo. The car park is small and unable to fully service every customer. Security and safety awareness of the hotel to be improved. The hotel security was not aggressive to assists us to get a car park even we have looking many around for space to park the car. The floor and lift were wet and it is dangerous for senior guest and visitors. The room is big however cleanliness to be improved. The breakfast was nice and delicious.
The hotel is four star. Location is excellent. But the condition of the rooms are very bad. needs renovation urgently and immediately. The toiltiers are not adequate as should be in four star . The service is very slow. Reception Handling was fine and quick. The complimentray Tea/Coffee very less quanity and they have put a note if you need replishment then you have to pay RM 5.00 extra which is very unusaul for a four star hotel. The breakfast spread is good. Swimming pool and the beach is excellent.
3 days 2 night, check-in fast. Location is good, going towards Batu ferringi and Georgetown is convenient. Opposite hotel main road has a row of dining shops, nasi kandar is worth a try. Night there is a singer and is quite enjoyable plus windy at the bar area. The beach is a public beach, nice to walk but water is dirty trashes can be seen. Requested mineral water sadly to say they needed to charge us. Water Baskin leaking, Abit dangerous as floor is slippy. Swimming pool is big and spacious, however on the bad side which is dirty inside. Unsure were there anyone cleaning in the morning. Lastly, hopefully the hotel parking should be allocate towards in house guests first, as seems some parking there were public guests.
Room was specious and nice sea view. Fantastic breakfast despite a bit crowded. good food selection Management and staff gave a very warm hospitable service. I will be back in next school holiday. welcome experience was good Lobby was a bit bright during noon. Other than that flamingo is the most perfect location for holiday. the beach was clean and not crowded compared to Batu Feringghi.
We had a gala dinner and stay over a night there. The ballroom was no where near spacious. Maybe it was the commitee of the dinner who should have thought this ballroom is not enough containing all 100 people. The food some of them are average, should ve been better. The pros is only the beach. Hopefully, this hotel improves their service.
