Pink Flamingo Resort Review

This gay-friendly boutique resort, set amid tropical gardens around a large, heated lagoon pool, is a perfect mix of hip and affordable, gregarious and relaxed. Everything you need for a laid-back stay is here: terrific poolside bar and barbecue area, outdoor gym, laundry, tour desk, guest lounge, and billiard room. The worldly, broad-minded owner-managers can point you to the best local eateries, dive boats, and tours. Pink Flamingo has just 12 stylish, open-plan studios and villas, some pet-friendly and all air-conditioned, with nd kitchens or kitchenettes, flat-screen TVs, and iPod docking stations. The 10 self-contained villas have king beds and lounge areas with well-equipped galley kitchens, private garden courtyards with outdoor showers, double tubs, hammocks, and massage cabanas. Bath salts, candles, incense, and Pink Flamingo beach towels and sarongs encourage intimacy and relaxation. You can preorder breakfast hampers, buy bar snacks on-site, and grill fresh-caught seafood on the barbie, but otherwise you'll have to go off-site to eat.
