So I went back home for a quick weekend unwind trip. Booked my stay online for 3 nights. On the 2nd night I decided to extend my stay 1 more night. A family member did just that for me. FDA verbally agreed with both the security guard(ponytail man) and myself present. FDA further said I could pay upon CO. The next day housekeeping comes knocking and says there is no extension on my room. Check with FD. As I went back into the room literally 2 minutes later another employee (no name tags) a male who came and asked if I’m checking out cause it’s pass CO time and I need to pay for the room now. So I’m asking him what’s the mixup on my stay. Of course he doesn’t know. As he walks off. Now a new FDA is there and knows nothing about my previous arrangement. I ask her to call her coworker and verify my extension. Arneigh admits that she said it but never changed my reservation or put in any notes. Now this is where it completely goes left. This new FDA wants to charge me a higher rate and proceeds to treat me as I did something wrong. Another guest offers to and pays for my extended night. Because I asked to speak to the Manager. The FDA gives me the GM name but calls someone else on the phone. My mistake was not getting a RECEIPT! One hour later the no name tag super aggressive male employee returns banging knocking on my room door saying “you have to come downstairs now and pay for the extra night. The other guest agreed to pay the difference but now they only want to pay $20”. I’m asking this man why are you trying to intimidate me and my room was paid in full with me standing there. So he said “I didn’t get a receipt right? Well it’s not paid and I need to come now that’s an order! Whatever the initial FDA agreed to with me doesn’t matter!” Excuse you ! That’s your coworker who just admitted she made a mistake and you telling me what? As he saw the front door I proceeded to call the manager who the FDA said to call. An hour later of not getting the manager, the switchboard operator said I’m asking for the wrong manager. That the FDA Gave me the GM instead of the FDM. WHY? Why not give accurate info? Finally got to speak to the FDM and that was mistake #2! She’s only interested in the funds. FDM Goodman had a horrible attitude and wouldn’t listen to my quarry only challenge everything I said. The nerve to have such a bad attitude. Finally spoke to the GM. STILL WASNT MUCH RESOLVE. My quarry was about miscommunication on there behalf and where the money gone from the next guest who paid for my room? Apparently no one addressed it. No one! Lesson learnt. Arneigh was the initial FDA , short security guard was the aggressor along with the FDM Goodman and GM Neely heard me out but was more interested in defending the unknown. Seems like since things slow in Freeport any opportunity to scam funds from guests at this hotel is accepted and encouraged. Oh yea ,on my receipt I got had F&B charges added on and taken off. How is it possible when I never ate there. $20 deposit on beach towels for guests.

Yes, just like these reviews say, it needs some renovations, especially after the hurricane, but they are working on it with the resources they have! Every day, they are improving a room! It is only a quick walk to their pool, which has an awesome slide over their grotto swim up bar. Also there are hammocks, pool volleyball nets, and tanning/wading areas. The beach is gorgeous! I loved the Lucaya marketplace, once I found it 😂 The people there are so friendly! We made great connections! Big Mama,the excursion specialist, made so many things happen for us!! Our trip wouldn’t have been as awesome without her, Patrice, and Tammy (sp?) we love y’all! Love Nat and Amanda 😊

Went to take a fishing trip with friends who have stayed at Flamingo in the past . We were just looking for convenience and a room as we knew we would not be spending much time on the property . The Manager was very accommodating and the rooms although not certainly luxurious but clean and simple . We went to the pool and it was very nice . It depends what you are looking for , however , if you want to fish out of Lucaya, I would recommend . I might add the marina is right outside your room so it is very convenient and safe.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hotel is old, rooms are old, toilets don't flush well, very low water pressure in the shower, leaking faucet in sink, Most important, no backup power generator. Hotel lost power for an entire night & most of the next day and there was nothing they could do for the guests. You have to pay Taino Beach a resort fee to use the pool, the beach and go to the one restaurant across the street which are the nicer pictures you see online but it is not this hotel. You will be charged $10 to rent a beach towel. The store in hotel is limited with things to buy and only if you have power. Very loud, you can hear everything in the room behind you. It only separates each room by a thin door. The hotel only gives the marina view and 1st floor to guests with boats!I No elevator. I will never return!!!!!

Room was clean, just needs a little maintenance/updating especially in bathrooms. Since we didn't spend much time in the room it was fine. Bed was comfortable. All the staff was friendly and helpful. This place is not on the resort grounds - across the street. Allowed us to get into our room early! Big mama is great - so accommodating and helpful. Walls are a bit thin - could hear someone in the adjacent room snoring! No safe which would have been helpful. All in all we were pleased.
