Not Exactly Like the Pictures

Reviewed 10 september, 2019

This place is not to be considered as a Hotel but more like a Motel. The room Pictures on the internet must be 20 years old. The rooms are the same but nothing has been replaced. This place is outdated and can stand for some serious room renovations We were there just before Hurricane Dorian hit so I do not know the status of the place now. While there, the bed was OK but I did not understand why the blanket was being used as a cover sheet with the linen sheet on top. I had to flip the blanket and linen sheet to make the bed the way normal people are accustomed. After questioning this method at the front desk we were told " that is they way they were trained to make beds" We quickly got tired remaking the bed and tipped the maid to make the bed properly. The rooms were cleaned daily but the bathrooms are worn and need serious updating. There is a small kitchenette which is useful to have. TV reception could be better, air conditioner is noisy and so is the bathroom vent fan. There is no WiFi. The room phone did not work and there are no clocks in the rooms. I guess management feels like " You have a cell phone, so use that " But the electrical outlets are so old that you have to judge which one's are safe to use. In reading other reviews I noticed the Hotel said they were in the process of renovating back in January 2018, well they have not reached the second floor yet and it is August 2019. There are no elevators so if you need first floor accommodations it's best to ask in advance of your stay. There is a laundry room available for use and a small convenience store in the lobby. This place has access to a very nice beach which has beach chairs, beautiful pool and restaurant but you have to walk a short distance to get to them. They will try to charge you for beach towels so bring your own. There is a lovely Marina which is in the back and there is a Ferry that will shuttle you to Port Lucaya every hour on the hour until 11 pm. While there you can shop and walk around until you decide to return. If you can get to the grocery store called Solomon's you can pick up some food and snacks to get by while you stay here. Prices are expensive on the Island, they are trying to recuperate from the many hurricanes and decline in tourism. If this place can take a leap of faith and listen to what the previous reviewers have said it would be a better place to stay and considered a Hotel again.

Okay Hotel

Reviewed 5 august, 2019

Flamingo Bay is an okay hotel, not my first choice to stay in paradise (I won a trip here and of course I got put up in one of the cheapest hotels). However, for the price, the hotel is near Port Lucaya Marketplace, right on the channel, the rooms were clean and no bugs that I have seen. Could use an update, though, but if you're only staying a couple of nights and on a budget, this will do.

Highly disappointed

Reviewed 29 july, 2019

We stayed here for 3 nights & it seemed like everyday something worse happened. They wouldn’t let us check in when we got there from our cruise line so we had to wait for hour & got to see what Taino Beach had to offer in their restaurant that was mediocre. The beach view was beautiful, I’ll give them that but it was a walk across the street to get there. The ferry shut down so we had to take taxis to get to the market place. The beds are NOT comfortable, in fact ours had bed bugs. The room we were in didn’t have the furnishings as the other rooms also, no blanket & not even a lamp. The people were friendly but that’s the least they could do. Taino beach actually has very limited options, they’ll cancel everything at one drop of rain & the resort across the street gives you access to their pool but that’s the only thing that may be worth it other that the beach. It’s very old & desperately needs an update. It has a horrible gift shop. Housekeeping was lousy with the cleaning but they want you to clean up the room before you leave. The power goes out. If you don’t plan on being in the room at all, not even to sleep or bathe, this place my in fact be perfect for you.

Clean but a little old

Reviewed 16 july, 2019

The hotel is right across the street from the beach and a restauraunt which is convenient. There is a hot tub, water slide, swim-up bar and lazy river on the grounds. The hotel staff was always nice and friendly.

Nice Place

Reviewed 15 july, 2019

This place isn’t fancy or luxurious but it is nice and had everything I needed including a kitchenette and the rooms are also cute. It is a short walk to the beach, restaurant, and pool, which are all together. The pool is amazing, and the bar is really cool. The bartender was good and he makes the drinks strong. The front desk worker and cleaning ladies are really nice too. The beach is beautiful, there is a big hot tub, there are cats everywhere too! The ferry boat to port Lucaya in right behind the hotel and is really cheap however taxi services are more expensive.
