I would have gave them three stars to make it 'average', but average hotels don't allow robberies so easily. Honestly, it was a great experience. All they need is better security. How unlucky is it to get robbed at 1AM in the morning on the day of leaving Miami? Bunch of teens swimming at the pool at 1AM in the morning. Some hooligans come in the pool, whom seem to innocent at first and seem like just visitors from the hotel .. all of a sudden snatch our bags and run off. Over $1,000 worth of stuff owned by just only TEENS, gone just like that. Yeah, we're pretty dumb for swimming so late and bringing those bags in the first place, but the gate was easily broken in. The pool gate was easily entered. What's the point in both gates? If there are two gates for something, I would expect to be safe. FLAMINGO IS LUCKY THAT THESE WERE JUST SOME YOUNG ADULT HOOLIGANS AND NOT REAL ADULTS, otherwise something worse would have happened and then let's see if they would anything about their crap hotel now. They were even caught on camera and and their car, but the cameras were so crappy and useless, it doesn't even matter. Even one of the security guards stated how crappy their hotel was. I wish I knew this before choosing to stay here. I thought I would just let it go, but this time a condo itself was even robbed from one of the reviews below. That's just horrible. Get your hotel straight, Flamingo South Beach.
