We stayed at the Flamingo during the last week of March and really loved it! Oceanfront room with a great view, heated pool and whirlpool, clean and close to Pier Park, Sharky's, Shuckums, Wal Mart, Target and a variety of other shops within walking distance. Although it was cool the week we were there, the sand and amount of beach are excellent, there were always chaise loungers available (although we noted other guests who got up early to put their towels on chairs at 6:30 a.m. and didn't actually use the chairs until 2:00 pm. - very tacky and inconsiderate!). Housekeeping fulfilled all of our requests (including asking for closet hangars - there were none when we arrived and they brought 20 new ones), the owners and staff were always friendly and courteous, and we felt safe in this stretch of Panama City Beach. The price was great, especially for ocean front during the tail end of Spring Break. We liked the room's full size refrigerator-freezer, stove, microwave, table for two and balcony/walkway overlooking the Gulf. Outside on the upper patio there are a couple of charcoal grills for grilling out & a sheltered picnic table if you so desire. For me personally, the bed was difficult to sleep on and after a few days, I experienced back soreness after a few hours of sleep. You may or may not experience this but though it was worth mentioning. Overall, the rooms do have some wear & tear, but nothing that over counter-balanced the positives. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back at some point.
