We booked this hotel from a Thursday to Sunday for the purpose of the waterpark area. Overall this was a decent stay.

I will start with the price, it was the lowest of all the hotels in Orlando with a waterpark but like the saying you get what you pay for. Note: a lot of places that you book this hotel through don't tell you that there is a $8 a night resort fee or $10 per person waterpark fee if not included in the package. I booked through a site that said free continental breakfast and when I asked there was no free breakfast.

The room was decent but some of the bad things were extremely small TV, uncomfortable beds, tiled floor VERY slippery and a musty smell. The good things were microwave and fridge and shower water pressure.

Now the waterpark area. It is very small and only has 3 larger slide which are mainly for kids. Beware with the blue slide cause it will tear up you back if you lay flat . the lazy river was good and the little kids play area was good too. this resort is best during weekdays when its not so full. BEWARE on Saturdays!!! a lot of people come that are not booked in he hotel and gets extremely full! I had the same issue a lot of people had where people let their kids run everywhere and don't care about little kids so please watch your small ones. and the larger pool was ok just a standard pool.

The neighborhood: I am familiar with the area but for people that are not, There is NOTHING in the area. you would have to drive 20 min to old town area or international dr for any restaurant's or entertainment. the only thing you have is a publix or denny and some gas stations.

Please look at all your options when booking a hotel...

We really appreciate you taking the time out in leaving us with your comments and your feedback on our competitive pricing, rooms and convenient location. While it's disappointing to know that you did not fully enjoy our property, we can assure that our resort fee is mentioned on all booking channels and our website. Thank you again and we would love nothing more than to see you comeback for a future stay.

Among the millions of hotels in the area this one is a great value. to save $$ on a recent trip we flew out a day early and needed somewhere to stay until our checkin at our condo the next day. I contacted flamingo to see if we could use the facilities after checkout so we had something to do until our 4pm checkin. they promptly responded yes. so for $50 give or take we got a decent room, clean and bright and 4 passes to the "waterpark". storms were coming throught the day of arrival so the pool was closed (bummer). comfy beds and inroom coffee were a plus. searched a bit for freakfast and then returned to checkout and use the waterpark. short wait to get wristbands at opening but no biggie. waterpark was quiet and very small. kids had fun but would be worth the money if we were staying several days. one slide wasnt operating and the other two were just ok. kinda hurt your back and on the open one you moved so slow you had to push yourself along... no major complaints and I think if you are expecting at $50 hotel you will like this one!

We came to the Flamingo Waterpark Resort for the 2nd year. This year we brought our adult kids and there children. everyone had a great time. With Water park, swimming pool, and the arcade with movies at the after dark. This is one of the best deals that I found. Thank you

Room Tip: If you have kids ask to have rooms out back. If no kids ask for the front rooms

My husband and 2 boys, 4 and 6, had a great spring break at this resort. The staff was friendly and housekeeping was awesome! They found my sons stuffed animal and kept it until we could pick it up. The kids loved the pools and the price could not be beat. We would definitely go again!

A very fun place if staying with little children. Location and service were very good, the value was excellent and the room was very clean. The waterpark was a lot of fun for the kids! I very much recommend the resort for families.

After reading several reviews rated a 1 from the previous 3 weeks....I almost did not stay here. Ignore them. The staff is pleasant, the water park view room was spacious, clean and a very good bed. It contained a King bed, sofa bed, desk,and a microwave, refer and small freezee and coffee maker with coffee cream and sugar. A small OK restaurant is onsite.
