Just wanted to say that my partner and I had a great time. The staff was friendly and accommodating! We were there for the weekend and loved the music by the pool day/night! We loved being able to just walk to the bar or club right there within the resort. Will definitely be back again! Thank you Flamingo!

We booked an overnight room at Flamingo Resort in St. Petersburg. We’d stayed at the Flamingo once before but it had been a least a couple years back. They have a directly web-based reservation system and the room rates are quite reasonable ($69), but as the old adage goes “you get what you pay for”, and boy does it apply... More

I was unsure when I read the reviews for this resort, but decided to go anyway. I was pleased with the experience. The rooms may need updating, but mine was clean and good sized, overlooked the pool. I was concerned about the music being too loud, but found it to be acceptable and not really a bother, slept well. The... More

Great staff, clean room, and overall a fun time! It's really an entertainment complex than just a hotel, there's bars and night clubs on the property, a performance space, and they have DJs playing music poolside on the weekends where a lot of the locals come to dance.

A great concept but needs to have more detail to become successful. On July 4, my partner and I decided to spend the weekend at the hotel. We arrived early and the reception told us we can enjoy the pool. Actually, anyone can enjoy the pool without being a guest or paying a day pass - this is a plus.... More

Fun place, Sunday T-dances are always a good time! Food is so-so, nothing great, rooms are a bit sketchy! They are really dated and dirty. Fun place to go for drinks/dancing but I would stay someplace else. Watch your tab/bill though...we are over charged more often than not. They need to get rid of the gross carpet, old TVs and...
