This week we stayed here ..not planned as we were promised the Marlin at Taino Beach by Universal Vacations. So disappointed. Locked into the Motel 6 style old hotel on a marina. Cleaning staff did clean but regularly missed trash taken out. Refill of toilet paper. No towels at

The Flamingo hotel is a nice close location for short stays when visiting Taino Beach resort. You have access right there to take the ferry shuttle to the marketplace fo some dining and shopping. Also it is close to Taino beach .

Had won a free cruise and 4 night stay at this hotel. This is clearly an older hotel. there is a kitchenette, which is only a mini fridge, microwave, toaster and sink. there are only plates, cups and silverware. our room overlooked the dock with ferry to Lucaya marketplace.

Typical Bahamian somewhat run-down motel, sans colorful owner who sets the mood and makes it worthwhile. Freeport is a shaky area nowadays. It was so before Hurricane Matthew and now it is in a vicious cycle of poverty, crime and drugs scaring away any tourism that might help

I truly have no idea about the negative reviews that were posted about the Flamingo Bay Hotel since my daughter and I were well pleased with our hotel, our room and the amenitities, and all the staff we came in contact with..the exterior of the hotel was a cream colored

This was not a "question" but a response. Sorry. I already stayed there in August with 3 wonderfully behaved grandsons. But, do not let the staff tell you the ONLY way to take the ferry is to BUY TICKETS from the hotel. NOT SO!! The ferry driver will take $ and it is NEVER more. AND--if you have an RCI CARD-take advantage of it and use it for the ferry -It is an RCI perk for those who use that credit card. .-You DO get a discount.(it is $3.00; not $7.).The ferry driver is happy to honor it for any hotel. With that card you need not even be staying at a hotel. As for Big MaMa and the excursions, The pigs were not her tour.,She did not steer us well with the taxi escort she called to have us Swim with the Pigs. The lady (Hila or a similar name-was money hungry only. She was NOT accommodating with anything and charged $300.00 for me and for 3 young boys. I told her I WANTED TO JUST WATCH the boys swim with pigs. She insisted watching cost the same-$75.00. When we got there I learned it was supposed to be $5.00 only for me to watch. I was burning inside. AND-you do not take guests to a beach and then get furious if a spec of sand gets in the car.(especially when I paid $300.00 to get there and to experience the pigs which I did not care about anyway. The boys loved the pig gig. They also spent a lot of time cleaning off their shoes for her. I wanted to stop briefly at MARTIN TOWN where my FL friend is from.She knew it from the start of our drive and said we would be going there. I saw the sign. She whizzed by it and would not turn around for me to snap a photo. She said we would go there en route back so--OK. We did not even go that way back. She was NOT the driver for us.I am sure Big MaMa would agree even if they are friends. Team up with a few other guests and rent a car.
Is free wifi available in the rooms?
Yes it is. They will issue a password at the front desk.

The Flamingo Hotel rooms only have a toaster, microwave, coffee maker and small refrigerator. There are no cooking facilities. There is a gift shop in the lobby with some grocery items or there is a grocery store 10 minutes away by taxi.

How old do you have to be to stay here
We stayed here with our kids who were 5,9 and 11 at the time. I did see young couples at the pool with infants as well. More importantly, you should check on their recovery from Hurricane Matthew. They may not be back open, or even have power at this point.

"choose room with view of dock. no balconies in any rooms."
"The best way to choose a good room is to get one at another hotel."
"Hope your a time-share owners to get access to the better properties."
"Motel!!! Not a Family/ Vacation Spot"
"Take a picture of your receipts and make sure you get receipts!! I went to turn in my towel the desk wrote a 1 over the 2."
