We stayed at the Flamingo Beach Resort in June. We had a 2 BR unit which looked to be a 1 Br with a lock out studio combined .. Our 1 Br was very spacious with a full kitchen and was ocean front ! the bathroom was huge . The studio was spacious enough for 2 people with a separate... More

We chose the Flamingo Beach Resort to celebrate our 30th anniversary after readiing extensive reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Excellent location close to shops and restaurants. Take good walking shoes for the hilly walk. Contrary to some reviews we found staff to be quite receptive. They are very busy and often there is only one person on... More

My friends and I meet in St. Maarten every summer at the Flamingo and love it! I was beachfront this year on the first floor, nothing like walking out of your room directly onto the sand. I recommend it to everyone. The room was great, although I did wake up with small bites on my chest one morning and my... More

Stayed here with my hubby, sister and 3 year old son in 1 bedroom unit. Sis slept on sofa bed in living rm, and we requested and received a roll-away bed for our son to use in the bedroom. Upon arrival, I spoke to the manager William, who was very helpful. When he realized we had 4 people, he put... More

The condo was a lot nicer than expected. We had an updated, clean, very spacious one bedroom with a beautiful ocean front view. Unfortunately we locked ourselves out on the balcony once (be careful!!) and it took me calling for help to 3 different staff members before someone finally came and let us out! Embarrassing. St. Martin advertises itself as... More

We stayed at the Flamingo for 6 days in mid July. Check in was a little slow due to other ppl having issues, but other then that was smooth. Our room however wasn't in the best location. We were up in the studios on the hill, across the road. If you go try to get one located on the beach... More

My husband and I stayed here for the first week of our honeymoon. We were very happy with the accommodation. Our room was large, clean and well maintained. We had an incredible view of the ocean from our lovely west facing balcony. The location was excellent; far enough off the main road that it was quiet and safe, but close... More

I have just returned from the St Maarten Diamond resort and cannot compliment the staff enough! Everything was clean and very well maintained, rooms were spacious and every single detail was in place. I am not always easily pleased and on fact we left the Mercure hotel in disgust and thankfully found this paradise where everyone smiled and clearly cared... More

Very clean property overall, I would definitely stay here again. The beach is O.K. at best, kinda feel like it is a lagoon but it was very quiet. Close to sunset cruises and other water sports, lots of restaurants, casinos and grocerys close as well. The lobby had great deals on deep sea fishing, sunset cruises, tours and lots of... More
