Spent a few days here with friends and boy we had fun. Sure it's run down but that's not why we chose it. It's hard to find a place like this and it delivered what we were looking for. We met a lot of interesting people but the staff was the best asset. Terry at the cabana bar was working... More

You didn't book the Ritz here people lol. The rooms are inexpensive, clean enough and staff were nice. For the price paid it was worth it, bars on site were pretty fun as well. Slow to check in and some issues with my second night of reservation but staff were apologetic and cute :)

While James at the front desk is extremely professional the dynamic is inconsistent, unprofessional & sketchy. The bartenders are very nice as I'm a great tipper and have been in the service/hospitality business for decades. I was overcharged by a bartender John who was attitudinal & unauthentic... Though I was compensated I'm extremely disappointed by managements lack of urgency.

This place is not sure if it is a hotel with bars or a collection of bars that happens to have hotel rooms. They also do not tell you that music will be broadcast to he pool area from 11:00am to midnight. Every. Single. Day. It's a great resort for a long weekend. I was there a full week. Not... More

Our first visit to the Flamingo, just before the season really kicks off. We had a great time. Other gay resorts have been huge let downs. The staff here works nearly around the clock. All of them. Everyone was kind and welcoming in every corner. James, Will, Ted and many others. The welcoming inclusiveness to everyone, gay or straight -... More

First off don't expect this to be a Hilton. The hotel is dated but they are trying to make improvements. We stayed for 5 days March 3-8, 2016. We arrived late and the check in was very fast and friendly. We stayed on the 2nd floor with pool view. The room furniture is dated but solid. The dresser had drink... More

We stayed here March 3 - March 5, 2016, after finishing up a business trip to Tampa. After the four days with my work team, I need to get away, relax, and have a little fun. The Flamingo Resort gave us all that, plus some. Now, let me start by saying, this is NOT a five-star hotel resort, nor is... More

The best part of this place at the outside bar and the code bar. Bartenders are friendly drinks are good and reasonably priced. The bad part are the rooms that while clean are old and in need of repair. There is no room service. The rooms are not cleaned daily nor are the beds made daily nor all the towels... More

We stayed at Flamingo last weekend. We had a blast. A lot of the activity going on around the property. The Cabana bar was packed Saturday night and Tyler (bartender) was great. Sunday we were at the Hurricane Bar with bartender Terry and he was great also. We checked in Friday and took a room on the 2nd floor above... More

Stopped by the Flamingo Resort for Sunday Funday with our friends. We did not stay at the resort as they are local, but did hangout at the pool, danced, had cocktails, and snacks. Overall, had a really fun day into the evening. I would recommend going on a Sunday for T dance and fun. Definitely will come back!
