The beach itself is great, we chose it because it was more quiet and peaceful then some of the more popular beaches, and we were right, its a small beach with only a few hotels/resorts and great sand and tranquil ocean (safe for young kids). There aren't many choices here for hotels, so this probably is the best one. That... More

My husband and I spent the first few days of our Honeymoon at Flaming Beach, and we had the best time. The food is delicious, we especially loved the breakfasts each morning. The daily two for one happy hour was great - the drinks were strong and delicious! The pool is beautiful, but the beach was our very favorite part... More

The beach was very beautiful, bartenders and waiters were very friendly, expecially Leo, Elias, Manolo and Manuel they remembered what we were drinking and also one of the waiters at breakfast time made sure I always had a glass of ice water without me asking for it after the first couple of days of us being there. The food was... More

We were happy with our choice to stay at the Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa. The rooms were comfortable and clean, but by no means soundproof--you hear your noisy neighbors. With that said, other things made up for this negative. The hotel has a "family room/kids play area" with ping pong tables, pool tables and a movie theater. My boys... More

Hotel is a bit rundown and crying for renovation. Service is ok. The pool is nice but not enough shade. The pool activities are very loud. but the beach is beautiful except for the tons of beach vendors.

Firstly the Hotel is set in a beautiful location that seems very secure on a peninsular. Probably the very reason we saw 3 wedding parties there in 5 days. The Hotel reception is beautiful and the staff there informative and knowledgeable. The Hotel for us, kinda went down from there. The buffet which we elected for one evening had pans... More

VERY family friendly ... if you're not a fan of lots of children, don't go during school holiday. However, even then the pool area is very large and nicely done. The swim up bar staff was efficient (if not overly skilled). Their location is superb. It is a great little beach just 20 steps away. There are also a lot... More

Thank you very much for your kind review after your recent stay at the Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa. While it is true that we are a very family oriented resort (after all, we are family owned), we also try to cater to couples and we offer a lot of romantic options such as private dinners on the beach, couples...

If you're looking for a quiet peaceful place to retreat, this isn't it. The pool and bar areas are loud but having said that the place is beautiful and lots of fun. There's a game room with ping pong, pool, etc. The resort has a small casino (all video) and a spa on site that is amazing. The best part... More
