Stayed 10 days at Flamingo. Solo traveler, male, American. Very nice rooms, very clean and one of the most comfortable beds I slept on ever! Very low priced breakfast that is wonderfully presented, if you choose the upgrade from the continental. No robe as mentioned on site.
The staff seemed very nice and genuinely concerned with your comfort, at first. As time went on it became evident that it was more than a little disingenuous on the part of the 'male' contingent. Batman's TwoFace. Beware of some of the recommendations made by the staff.
I had a terrible experience with Aquatic Sports, who hooked me up with a 'dive master' Christobel, who should not be in the business. Since there were only myself and another couple (very experienced) on the dive, I expected to receive some personal attention. I had not been diving since receiving my Open Water PADI in 1998. Much to my disappointment, I received very little and a "don't care attitude" I found very offensive. This was NOT a SAFE DIVE. I didn't make the second dive on the trip because I didn't want to dive with Chris again. In addition, the Owner of the store proceeded to "forget" to bring my $10 change from the $100 given to pay for the trip. Again, don't care attitude. I left it for the boat Captain and mate as tip. Not much honor with these people. As for Flamingo, the manager, rather than trying to mitigate, suggested that maybe I should try another Dive Shop. No, really? Though he did offer to repay the $10.
Isis Scooter rental around the corner, excellent. A highlight of the trip, being able to travel about town and the Island. El Amigo Abelardo across the street, EXCELLENT place for breakfast or lunch.
Have to WARN, there are dogs on the roof of neighboring property to Flamingo that bark ALL the time, and I mean all the time. Water pressure very low, but maybe this is island wide. It would help to fix the leaking shower head. Hot water was sporadic. WiFi did not reach many of the rooms, if this is important to you. It has to be used from the lobby, or the day bed located on the floor. Heard one complaint that the air conditioning did not work in their room.
