My wife and I stayed at this resort from 2-29 to 3-7-08 and I have to say it was pretty awesome. I read post after post stating that the food was bad and the rooms were not that good. I really don't need much to make a vacation good, all it takes is warm weather (90+) every day, no clouds or rain, nice rooms (cleaned every day), cold drinks ( and they were ). The food was not 5 star but I have not one complaint about the food. You could eat off the buffet or order off the menu with the all inclusive. Either way unless your looking for 5 star food, you won't be dissappointed in it.
I read about the Golden Shrimp so 4 of us decided to go give it a shot. Now you want 5 star, this comes close but in my opinion, 250.00 US dollars for 4 of us to eat dinner with 2 drinks each is a bit much. I wouldn't go there again. I however would go to the Happy Snapper again. 180.00 for 4 of us but the food was so much better.
The sunset at the beach has to be the best I have ever seen anywhere. I would recommend taking the Lazy Lizzard trip for the snorkling and sunset view out on a boat. Both were awesome.
I could only find one real fault in this place and it was the issue with the all inclusive. Even though you go all inclusive, you still have to sign your room number and name to every drink you get (even bottled water) and to every food item you get. That was a pain in the a$$ when your getting drinks all day long. Other than that, you would have to be very picky to not enjoy a stay at the Flamingo Beach Resort.
