I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Flamingo Beach, prompted by the suggestion of a friend who as stayed there on multiple occasions. I have been going to the beautiful island of Djerba (also spelled: Jerba) for many years. If one wants to stay along the seaside, the choices are usually among the large hotels, and LARGER! The Flamingo Beach provides a nice alternative. True, you won't get the amenities of a spa, fitness room, indoor pool or multiple restaurants, but the owners, Nabil and Hela Bouabid offer something else: a warm welcome and the atmosphere of a small, personal hotel. The employees are all very welcoming, from the front desk to the waiters. "Service" is frequently lacking in Tunisian hotels, or at least, good service with a smile. It is in good form at Flamingo Beach and after having had an opportunity to meet the owners, I understood how important this is for them. Nabil attended the Cornell University school of hospitality, certainly one of the most internationally recognized universities for hotel and restaurant management. But attending and putting these standards into practice among the help is not always the result. Nabil and Hela succeed!
The location is right along the seaside, so one simply walks across the street to use this quiet stretch of beach. The hotel offers lunch and dinner, which is also very well prepared. If your palette simply calls for a pizza, this option exists less than five minutes away at a nearby pizzaria/sandwich shop.
If you can forsake the amenities of a large spa hotel and would like to have good value and the atmosphere of a small property that believes in service. Hotel Flamingo Beach deserves your booking.
