It was an excellent stay at this resort. The location is very accessible and close to several restaurants and very good beaches. The resort beaches are also very good. The staff is fantastic. The room was in excellent shape and it was very well equipped. The common areas are also very well maintained. I couldn't find a single thing wrong... More

We have stayed here several times before and always had a great experience. This stay was also wonderful and the team at the Flamingo Resort seem to have taken it up a notch. Everyone that worked there greeted us each time they saw us, and everyone was very helpful and pleasant. This is the first time we stayed in the... More

Firstly, St. Maarten as a whole is by far my favorite Caribbean destination. It is so European with cobblestone streets and really has everything. A beautiful beach around every curve, restaurants, and lush mountainous terrains and several bays. The Flamingo Beach is centrally located at Simpson Bay. We explored the island several times and kept coming back to our beach... More

I just did not want to leave. It's close to the airport, a plus! Check in was super easy. The ONLY THING I truly did not like was the check in and check out times. I expressed this to Expedia who stated they sent a message and it would be no problem to check in early or check out late.... More

This was a perfect room for us. Studio with an ocean view. Walk down the stairs and you're in the Caribbean! Great location between Marigot and Philipsburg. Close to airport and many restaurants. Easy walk to dock for Aquamania tours. Beach is divided by a jetty so actually 2 beaches. Water was great. We were there in off-season so had... More

Was awed by the studio in building 7. Beautiful views of the beach. A singular beach is kind of a misnomer because there are actually numerous seperate little coves around the resultv- adds to the charms. Have stayed in SXM many times. This is hands down best location seemingly in the center of everything.

The resort was fabulous and everyone was so friendly. A great place for some R & R with no crowds. I was their from August 31- September 6, 2014 and every morning I enjoy the morning breeze from the ocean and beautiful sunsets in the evening. Hat's off to Harold at the front desk!
