We stayed at this resort by going through a broker and staying in someone's time share. Price was great. Around $550.00 for a week. Traveled at end of September. Rooms were great. Small apartment set up perfectly. Great view of the ocean. Beach with a cabana restaurant that served excellent food. Around the other side was a private beach and... More

This was our 4th time staying here, but our first time as hotel style guests instead of timeshare. I will never be back as a hotel style guest. We payed over $225 per night for 11 nights, our room was cleaned twice. The only reason we got the second cleaning was because I called the front desk several times to... More

My husband and I have stayed twice and will again next year. This is our kind of place. Clean; friendly staff. Within walking distance to many terrific restaurants. Great beaches and pool side areas. We met many wonderful people there. Free laundry facility available. My only criticism: the furniture, though clean and comfortable, could use upgrading. If you have mobility... More

I originally bought 3 timeshare units, including Xmas week, at Flamingo in 1990. Fortunately, our contract had an escape clause and we surrendered our 3 units this year. When the maintenance gets more expensive than the room rack rate, time to move on. This final year we had room(s) 6-203 A & B. Bldg 6, lockout with two separate but... More

This hotel really pleasantly surprised me during my stay. Due to its fair price and three star rating, I was expecting a rather average hotel. After dealing with a very long check in process, it seemed my suspicions were justified. However, my suspicions were unjustified and I enjoyed a marvelous stay at this fine hotel. Firstly the long check in... More

The beach here is simply amazing. It is also close to many restaurants and plenty to do in the surrounding area. The room itself are made cheap. The service was also a little lacking at times. Great views though.

Thanks to the generous offer from my sister/brother-in-law, we were provided a lovely one bedroom unit with an ocean view! Unfortunately, not all units had this wonderful view. I believe we were in unit 6242b. Half of the units in this wing had ocean view. The other half looked out on the green belt between the unit and the reception... More

Location, location, location! What a great location! The Flamingo Beach Resort is perched upon a corner of the earth where the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet. To get to it you must drive up a steep winding road that climbs up, up and up .....way up, above the Simpson Bay and Maho Bay congestion that you must drive... More

We were lucky enough to get a room facing the beautiful sea. 50% of the rooms face the parking lot and I would have been really upset. Also about 5 rooms on the ground floor are directly behind the restaurant with no view. Poor planning on their part. The rooms were being renovated a few at a time as far... More
