I stayed at the Flamingo in August for 10 days as part of the McDougall Wellness program. The 'resort' definitely has a vintage, mid-century feel. My room was pretty spacious, and only mildly dated in the bathroom. The lack of a bathtub was a negative, but the shower was fine so no problem. The hotel is essentially a circle, and the center is a courtyard with a very large pool. I really enjoyed hanging out in the pool area. The pool itself is only heated to 80 degrees according to one staff member, so that was a little chilly for me.
If you are looking for an upscale, 5-star sort of experience with people waiting on you at every turn, this is not that sort of place. If you appreciate a retro style, friendly staff, and a relaxing atmosphere, the Flamingo may be just right for you. There is a restaurant on site, large pool, hot tub, and that is about it. Using the word 'resort' may be stretching it as far as the number/type of amenities/activities go, but the hotel overall was charming and cool.More
