Good for relaxing but not for beach fun .Crab Hunting ,Flamingo visit not for all guests. Disappoint”

Flamingo Beach Resort property name but no complementary Flamingo visit for all guests....only for in-house Russian guests as per Recepcenist Ms. TULLU. We were little bit upset because we have chosen this property for our kid 7 yrs old. Not only that swimming pool is not temperature controlled which is not good for other nationality like us except Russian guests. My daughter fall in sick due to non temperature controlled pool. The most important thing you can't enjoy the beach due to water current. But yes one good thing is Crab Hunting experience luckily we got complementary while booking through your site since we booked our stay with dinner. Property should think for all guests.

A huge group of us went and it was superb. ”

The beach was excellent and so were the gardens - we had an impromptu game of american football.

Pros: Mostly friendly and fairly fast check-in. Basic but good facilities. Inexpensive F&B. A chance to kick-back and enjoy much needed time with friends and let the kids (from 8 - 15) roam, snorkel, swim and explore. For the price it is a gem. Cons: No beach towels - even though they apparently have them. Very poor breakfast. The resort is in dire need of some TLC - however, for the price.... As a side note, if you are going to do the crab hunting, go early. It was a good experience but the crabs did not make good-eating. All in all, this element is overpriced and overrated.

Hidden Gem”

Beach, Gardens, Barasti Bar

Always great to stay at the Flamingo. It is a real hidden gem. Think of it as 'Goa without the visa'. If you are a foodie, this place is not for you. Definitely not got the chef sorted yet but if you are happy with pizza, burgers and chips, then its OK. Staff - mostly fantastic but a couple still need to understand customer care. Do not go if you need great TV, internet or wifi - but, if you just want to kick back and relax like we did, then it is perfect. The open lawns are great for games and the volley ball was well used by our group.

The rooms and bed were clean, Crab Hunting trip arranged in a professional manner, Late checkout

It was fantastic and all together a different experience. We, family of four where there last month during holidays. The rooms appear to have gone through some renovation and hence very clean. Lack of elevator is an issue even though it is a two storey facility. Make sure to go for the crab hunting which is the jewel of your stay over there. The hunting trainers are professional and within 15 minutes you will be able to have your first catch. The hunting is near mangroves around 15 minutes journey from the shore and it last for 45 minutes. On return you have the provision for 'catch of the day' where your hunt will be cooked on the flavour of your choice. The pool is bit over crowded and few boys are found running all over the place and practicing their diving skills. Most of the time they are found jumping dangerously without paying any attention to those who are inside the pool. The authorities have to implement some sort of control on this activity for safety purpose. The buffet dinner was good but make sure you are there in time. All together it was good and we enjoyed the stay. Another point to note here is that check-in takes lot of time for unknown reason. When asked, their reply was that there is overbooking, whih is creating the problem. The room was not ready initially and then I had to wait until one of the occupant vacate.

Dirty hotel with poorly trained reception staff”

crab hunting activity

My husband and I stayed a night at the Flamingo Beach Resort as we wanted to go for crab hunting. When we arrived at 1:30pm, we were told that check in only opens at 2pm. So we came back at 2pm, and they told us to come back at 3pm. Eventually they gave us the room. When we asked about the crab hunting activity, the receptionist told us that it was AED250 per person. We told him that it was listed as AED200 on their website, then he said that AED200 was for hotel guests only. As he had JUST checked us in, he knew that we WERE hotel guests, and he was probably trying to scam money from unknowing guests. We asked him why he had misled us about the price, and he boldly said he does this to every guest! We were also initially asked to leave a deposit of AED200 at the reception (for usage of minibar), and then this was later increased to AED300! The competency and service level of the staff at the reception really needs improving! The room condition was appalling. The bathroom was not clean, and there were stains all over the toilet seat! There were no bath towels provided. The hygiene level is beyond acceptable, there were food stains, leftover rice on the table in the room. I had not expected luxury, but I certainly did not expect the hygiene level to be this bad, even for a 2-3 star hotel. On the brighter side, we really enjoyed the crab hunting activity in the evening and the fresh crab cooked for us afterwards. We were also lucky to get a good boat guide who knew where to go for good crab hunting. The hotel staff at the buffet were also helpful (in bringing us our crab from the hunt for dinner). During checkout, however, again we had problems at the reception. I'm not sure if it was intentional, but the receptionist did not initially return the AED300 deposit, even after we had presented the deposit receipt. He eventually did, but mentioned that he was very confused. I will never ever stay at this hotel again.

Pool view on my room

I was disappointed with their dirty pool, greenish dark water on the beach, lots of cats roaming underneath our table while having dinner, jacuzzi was not working, mosquitoes on our room, few channels on tv and I can't get signal on my phone. I paid more coz we stayed there during Eid break wouldn't recommend it & will not come back in this resort in the future. The best thing here is that the liquor is cheap & you can even bring your own Shisha & karaoke.

Good for one day stay, Crab hunting was great!!”

Dear Agoda travelers, Overall a decent resort for one day stay. We happened to visit on a weekend holiday. The rooms were mostly occupied. Room is a studio type, with twin bed with chairs, TV and cupboard for the dress. The room floor were always moist even the windows/door were opened, may be because of the AC. The walls have black color stains here and there. The swimming pool is disappointing, the basement slopping of the pool is dangerous for a non-swimmer. It has steep slanting basement and very difficult to stand in the pool. The open space is good enough for the children to play, BBQ area and beach view. The most interesting was the crab hunting, its a life time experience. Middle of the sea, near to an unknown island which is surrounded by the darkness. We had the stick and torch to hunt the carbs down. We really enjoyed hunting the crabs and this crabs were served for dinner. Very tasty fresh crab meat!! The restaurant was a normal one, with limited facility. Thanks........

Not Really a good place to Relax - a below average resort”

You cannot really enjoy the night out here in Flamingo. I went for one day one night felt really boring with nothing to do other than an average swimming pool. The sea is said private but you have to go at your own risk and more prone to wave currents. You need to pay good extra amount of money to go for a boat ride or for the so called crab hunting. Breakfast is the worst ever with 100 dislikes to taste and menu. You will not find one good shop nearby if you decide to go relax outside. I personally can never recommend this hotel to any of my known people who wishes to relax cuz unfortunately i have to meet them again.

one word: awful”

at first we were only interested by doing the crabbing activity proposed by the resort and going home directly after the activities - after a few thought we decided to spend the whole week end and be relax - what a big mistake. we enjoyed the crabbing activity which lasted for approximately 1h - everything else was a real disaster. the room was ok but the washroom was full of moist and poorly maintain in general. the resort by itself looks much better on the pictures than in reality. the worse part of our stay was the noise there was loud music all afternoon (i am not even talking about the most horrible karaoke session) and there is not a single place in the resort where we could found a quite spot to relax. during the evening, we were surrounded by wild cat craving for some food and drunk people shooting, calling his friend at the other end of the resort and doing other disrespectful stuff (again you can't avoid that even if you stay in your room) - the resort will not do anything to calm the people down. 2am in the morning - finally we can fall asleep and believe that we will enjoy our night and be full of energy the next day. no no no - 6.50am the loud music(with the personal speakers of some "guess") and shooting restart - we called the reception and asked to do something about - they replied "we told them but they don't want to listen" so they let it go and didn't bother - i think the resort had the right attitude as the customer is king (i am a little bit sarcastic) . we planned to stay the whole day but end up going home (in dubai) at 9am (as we were waiting for the manager otherwise we would have left at 7am). it was just awful - before booking there we read plenty of bad review but we still decided to give it a try to see by our self - we should had trust the reviews.

Worst hotel stay ever”

Beachfront Location

I have been in a lot of hotels and resorts around UAE and this definitely deserves a negative 10. 1. Personnel never tried to hide their unwillingness to work by treating us as unwelcome guests, for example, concierge simply passed us by while WE were pushing the trolley ourselves. The whole time the reception simply ignored the situation. We hoped the inside is any different but no. 2. If you're looking for curfew, this place is perfect for you. Pools are closed at midnight. jacuzzi was supposed to close exactly at 10pm but it was shut down regardless of people present or not, the "people" I was referring to is yours truly who's inside the jacuzzi as early as 9pm. 3. cats and various scavengers scattered liberally all over the grounds 4. Barbecuing is prohibited at night except near the beach but even there, you provide your own grill. 5. Don't ever believe them if they tell you they are fully booked. With service and facility like these, I am not wondering anymore why they weren't, and will never be, fully-booked. They decided to place us farthest away from the beach even though the resort was occupied up to 25% capacity at the most. 6. Non smoking rooms were provided with ashtray, go figure. 7. The security will tail you as far as outside to make sure you don't bring your own food, beverage, and no I am not exaggerating, even a bottle of water. I know we have every right to complain but decided against it. We figured people in the hospitality sector who has been doing their job for a long time does not need to be reminded on what to do. There is no such thing as customer satisfaction, the place is a detention center and the staff are the prison wardens. Believe the reviews, however scathing it may be, and learn from other people's mistakes. In case you decide to go for it anyway, let go of the universal adage such as "the customer is always right", "let's have fun in the beach", or "service guaranteed". You have been warned.

Generally we were unsatisfied with our stay.”

Nice grounds. Not much else to say about the place.

The hotel had nice grounds and landscaping. However, they charged overcharged us for the room and refused to change price (paid for the hotel online, then when we arrived they charged us extra for the extra person...it was myself, my wife, and my son in a room with 2 twin beds). Buffet breakfast was overpriced and very poor. Seems like most of it came from a can and was reheated. There was a beach on premise, but a jellyfish infestation so there was no swimming. Internet available in lobby only for a fee. Overall, we were generally unsatisfied with our stay.
