My wife and I are HGVC owners. In the past we have stayed at the property located directly on the end of the Strip. This time, we were travelling with another couple and decided to try out the Flamingo property. While technically not on the Strip, we found this location right behind the Flamingo to be ideal. Facility is not quite up to the quality/elegance of the "Strip" location, but well worth the tradeoff in location and convenience.
What we enjoy most about this and all HGVC properties are the home away from home lifestyle amenities. We take full advantage of the cooking/bbq facilities. We have breakfast in the room just about everyday, and grilled up steaks and brats for dinner a couple of times. We really enjoy this as it is an easy way to some $$$ while still enjoying some home cooked meals.
The pool and bar are great. We chose to use the on-site pool rather than go to the more lavish Flamingo pool. Much quieter and relaxing. Very curious when the nearby ferris wheel under construction will be ready. Will certainly return.
